It’s not what you look like

I thought I’d write a poem today which will most likely make a feature in my book once I put it together…

Let me know what you think

🌸

It’s not what you look like, it makes you stand out I know, but does it show just who you are deep down, I think no.

Don’t be superficial and just go on looks alone, the person who you are seeking should like you for you, if not tell them to go.

Standing in front of the mirror, does it show how you feel, your happiness inside you spinning on an imaginary wheel?

Don’t worry about the outside it is not to be approved, because once you have undressed it.. all has been removed,

So worry about the inside of you before you decorate the out.

Tell the vanity inside of you to hurry up, get out.

A simple but Stylish DIY

You know when you have all your pretty notebooks you don’t want to use because you just want up admire them and keep them fresh…

So you get yourself a boring notebook and it just doesn’t scream use me so just gets pushed to one side.


I thought why not use that lonely book and make it look simple but pretty at the same time so here is what I decided to go with.


A piece of pink card, some double sided adhesive tape, some sticker paper, a quote and there you have it. A couple of hearts drawn on for good measure.

You don’t have to be good at crafts, just use your imagination a bit.

Go as crazy as you like…
If you decide to do it and share it on Instagram tag me @holzieloves or use #HLDIY

Happy Thursday 😘

Get your head in the game

I have just realised my title is a high school muaical song but I’m going to roll with it.

So I really think making lists is something that everyone should do.

Even if you have a mind that remembers everything.

These little beauts are from Card Factory for £2 and they pretty much are all you need to have your shit together.

In tomorrows post I am going to be talking all things blogging and what things will be helpful during each month.

So come back tomorrow and I hope today is a good start to your week.

Bring your notepad and pen to take notes.

Health update

Thought it had been a while since I did one of these updates on my health. So here’s the rundown.

ANXIETY

My appears from nowhere, for no rhyme or reason at the moment.

I get a tight chest, my thoughts are all over the place, I feel lightheaded and think I’m going to faint. The anxiety relievers I use are a stress ball type thing if it’s within reach at the time or the apps I’ve downloaded on my phone especially for anxiety. I’ll let you know them in a later post.

If I’m near my bed I lie down and listen to music or a guided meditation. It does help alot at the time.

UROSTOMY

It was going swimmingly, no problems as such and then it started leaking. So bag changes were and still are a bit of a performance.

My kidneys seem to be doing overdrive, I have an ultrasound at the end of the month so I’ll know more about that then.

I have to have another major op on my skin and stoma in the next 4 months to sort the problems out.

I was iron deficient but from last test I’m OK but still gotta take these horrible tablets.

🦄

M.E

It’s not been too bad actually I do however find myself going off to bed early like half 7 at night some evenings.

My voice goes and my voice gets sore when my body thinks I’ve overdone it. Some days I feel exhausted even after 8 hours sleep. But I find a happy medium most of the time where I can have a nap if needs be or just a lie down.

🦄

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER

My mobility is very up and down, when my body cooperates its good when it doesn’t I have to either use my wheelchair all the time or go into hospital if it is a real bad episode. We have had our shower adapted, so showering is much easier. Before we had a tiny closed in cubicle now it’s a lovely big wet room.

Most days my body is aching. I use wheat bags or a hot water bottle as I find heat it a great healer.

I wish I could have someone on tap for massage because I find that relieves the aches too. I want a new matteress one that your body just molds into, but until I’ve had my op it’s on hold.

🦄

So there you are the life of a chronically ill peach.

But blogging keeps me going and writing is my passion so I won’t stop.

Thanks for stopping by

Storytime Sunday

Take a seat I’m going to tell you a story.

So I’m nearly 34 and I’ll tell you something… Even though I am not where I expected to be or dreamt of being… I have been on one hell of a journey…and it has made me the person I am today.

❤️

I have suffered abuse/bullying its made me be more aware.

❤️

I’ve had my heart broken it’s taught me it mends within time.

♥️

I have stumbled into poor health, it makes me stronger and fight harder.

❤️

I had a crush on someone of the same sex. It taught me that gender doesn’t matter.

❤️

I have accomplished things in life which shows me to never give up on something you want.

♥️

I have witnessed divorce with my parents it’s taught me that love doesn’t always last forever.

❤️

I’ve met people from all walks of life and it’s made me realise that everyone has a story and no two stories will ever be the same.

That’s my little Sunday storytime. Thanks for stopping by.

Bullied for being me

After watching the tear jerking documentary with little mix Jesy Nelson ‘odd one out’ it didn’t half bring back all the feelings of what happened to me.

Life from the age of 11 was not how I envisioned it to be. I guess starting puberty that early didn’t help.

I was pretty much the only one for a few years that suffered with acne which of course made me the target for name calling and just making me feel like shit.

I had even a group of so called friends turn on me and taunt me inside of school and out. Our phone had to be unplugged as they were prank phoning every time you put it down for about 5 hours a day of a weekend 😔 it was horrendous looking back

These would in turn be the ones who beat me black and blue 2 weeks before my exams. My prom photos weren’t the ones I wished for as my face was still too sore for make up.

It took a good 5 years to actually get them out my head and life. But I don’t know why it still happens daily to people. It’s just not called for and it makes me so fierce when you see people take their lives because of it.

Bullies are just insecure about their own lives and instead of facing their problems they make sure someone else is miserable too.

My advice is to never suffer in silence. You deserve a happy life so don’t be made to feel miserable in the process.
