When writers block hits

You have all been there no doubt when you have so much passion to write but the words you want to write just don’t flow like they usually do.

I said in the last post that I was scared I was losing my mojo….wth all the disruption we’ve all had going on sometimes it’s hard to focus and have the motivation.

I am slowly getting back to it… and these are some things that are helping me get there.

1. Start with writing out all the answers to these questions…there are plenty of these on Pinterest

2. Think of all the topics you like writing about and put them in a spidergram and then add the legs of the spider with post ideas. It doesn’t have to be a rushed thing but it definitely helps

3. Read recent articles and other blogs for inspiration but never steal someone else’s hard work. You’re just there to get topic ideas that’s it.

I hope if you are ever stuck you could take one of these tips and use them.

Stay safe all

Much love 😘

What a crazy ass week

All of you will feel the same when you think is this all a nightmare that we are going to wake up from?

First of all I was meant to see my stoma nurse at the hospital Tuesday but the transport didn’t arrive to pick me up. So that was a getting hyped up to go for nothing.

Then my mate and me were meant to meet up and go on a little shopping trip and that didn’t happen.

I did however manage to go speeding along on my electric wheelchair and go up town with mum at the start of the week. Nice to just nosey.

Then the closure of everywhere has taken effect over the last few days so everyone is either self isolating or being cautious when they are out.

All I know there are some greedy and selfish people out there when it comes to shopping for essentials that we need and aren’t there because of carelessness of some people.

Anyway sending love and hope you are all looking after each other.

Improving you #1

You are under no obligation to be the same person you were

A year ago, a month ago, or even 15 mins ago.

No apologies.

I believe that if you just stay in one place doing the same boring thing day in day out you won’t change, it’s pretty obvious.

Self-improvement is such a great thing to do and its so easy. you can do as little of it or as much of it as you like.

My advice is to do a little each day and don’t let anybody or anything get in your way. Set yourself goals along the way and reward yourself with whatever you like once you’ve smashed them.

I’ll be doing some more self-improvement posts over the month of March. So keep your peepers open to when I’ve posted them on here.

Hope your week is off to a great start and if it’s not, then make sure you change it.

My current reads

I am not one to just stick to one book at a time so at the mo I have 3 that are in my to read pile.

I remember watching this on BBC with Sheridan Smith playing the role of Lisa Lynch. A woman who blogs about her cancer struggles but never let’s it define who she is. It’s been a while since I watched it so when I saw this book on the shelf for £1 I thought I must get this and read it.

I have suffered with anxiety for as long as I have been a teenager. So a very long time. Anything that gives me tips on how to combat it and maybe even get rid of it is worth a try. I know the speakmans do wonderful things with people with severe anxiety, fears and phobias. I am eager to get stuck into this book.

I absolutely love reading words of wisdom from the Dalai Lama online so thought if I can find a book of them then I’d buy it. It was only £3 so it was silly not to get it. Have read a few pages and I feel inspired by his words. You would too I just know it.

What books do you have on the go?

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

As you may have seen I’ve been blogging daily… This is because I’m having surgery next week and I’m not sure how long I’ll have a painkiller induced mind for (away with the fairies)

I thought I’d keep writing to I dunno keep myself busy.

So today I thought I’d have a chat about some things that are my all-time favourite things

The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe is my favourite books from my childhood. It was so magical and I’m glad they then made it into The Chronicles of Narnia. Over the last couple of years I discovered the wonderful poet Erin Hanson. So I love flickering through the pages and relate.

These 3 films are a bit old school but I love them and have probably watched them enough to say the whole film word for word.

So random that my favourite food is chippy, sausage, sprouts and chocolate. Obviously not all at the same time.

While searching for a pic of my fave male and female actors there they were stood together and it suddenly dawned on me they were in Mamma Mia together. I think they are bloody wonderful.

My favourite animal did used to be a pig as I was growing up. But over the last 20 years I have loved sheep. I would love one as a pet, but would need a big field for him and then some friends so he didn’t feel lonely 😂

You can kind of guess what my favourite colour is… I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed but I’m half way there.

Hope you’ve enjoyed finding out what makes me happy no matter what.
