Turn your life around

Change the way you think and how to do things and it’ll be pretty damn good.

❤️ Let go of those things that no longer serve me any happiness . If it doesn’t make you feel good, let it go.

❤️ Start over things I may hace tried in the past and not worked out but I don’t want to give up on it all together.

❤️ Move on. The people who have not been there for me when I needed them or wanted the company can stay in my past.

❤️ Get over it. The things that get me down but can’t be changed. Get over it and get on with it.

❤️Be positive. It’s the best way to be in life. It gets you nowhere being negative.

❤️ Keep going. When you aren’t quite at your destination or haven’t reached your goal, you just got to keep going til you get there.

❤️ Be healthy. It’s ok to have a treat once or twice a week but on the whole stay to a healthy diet and your body will thank you for it.

❤️ Stay focused. Concentrate on where you’re going and not where you’ve been.

❤️ Trust my gut. When you get that feeling something isn’t quite right 99.9% of the time your guts usually spot on.

❤️ Turn it around. If you make a little mistake don’t give up there and then, work on it and work through it.

❤️ Open new doors. If you aren’t getting satisfaction from whatever situation. Shut that door and go and open new ones.

❤️ Make a difference. The one thing thats so beautiful in life is make a difference to either yourself or someone else.

Things that make us all happy……


MORE SLEEP

At the end of the day you can’t wait to get in your bed, to get warm, snuggle in and sleep your senses away. Then in the morning you don’t want to get up and snooze god knows how many times. Sleep is great so never deny yourself it. Get as much as you can

MORE MUSIC

I know music makes my day a happy one. A tune that takes you right back and makes your heart sing as well as you singing along. Music is so powerful, whether it’s a song or instrumental.

MORE TEA

It doesn’t have to be Tea. Just your favourite hot beverage that makes everything better for that moment in time. Mines a Options mint hot chocolate. Delicious. Come to think of it, it doesn’t make any difference if it’s a hot or cold drink it’s just one that makes you go mmmmm.

MORE BOOKS

A good book can make you happy and intrigued for hours. Some people just can’t stop buying books and divulging into them. Others just plod on through one but are equally as thrilled with the book.

MORE SUNSETS

When there’s better weather, a beautiful sunset makes you go wow and it’s so pretty to look at, until the sky goes black. Appreciating all the beauty of it. Then it’s a while til you see something so picturesque again. So if you can, get your camera out.

MORE CREATING

whatever form of creativity makes you happy, do it. Whether it’s writing, drawing, art and crafts or creating something on a bigger scale. Personally myself I like to dabble in a bit of all sorts.

MORE LONG WALKS

 

Going on a walk, either on your own, with a friend or a lover…or even in a group is really enjoyable if you have a lovely destination at the end of it and obviously the company makes it worth its while too.

MORE LAUGHTER

I will forever say this…Laughter is the best medicine, and the best form of therapy.  You won’t ever feel unhappy after laughing and that’s why i think it’s such a magical thing.

MORE HUGS

Giving someone a hug is a gift that can mean so much in a time of need, and can definitely turn a frown upside down. Most people love a hug. There is the few that aren’t fans.

 

MORE DREAMING

I don’t mean those dreams you have in your sleep that are all higgledy piggledy and don’t make sense at all. I’m on about the ones you want to become a reality. The ones you can work towards to make you happy as Larry. Keep dreaming and make them as big as you like.

MORE ROAD TRIPS

Nothing beats a road trip, with the best playlist and a friend who lets you forget all your worries and sing like a cat pissing in a biscuit tin. You don’t have to do them all the time but every once in a while if someone asks you, go. You’ll be smiling there and back for sure

MORE FUN

Fun can be anything you want it to be and as long as it’s making you happy and it’s not illegal, carry on having as much of it as you can. Fit some fun into your day and wear that grin with pride.

MORE LOVE

Love comes in all shapes and sizes and you can love a person, place or a thing.  The world needs more love and I tell you when you feel loved it’s a wonderful feeling. Love with your head and heart, body and soul.

What makes you Happy?

MY BEDTIME ESSENTIALS

There’s few things that help me at bedtime to nod off…

I swear by this pillow spray by feather and down with its lavender scent it leaves me relaxed and ready for sleep.

My hot water bottle is very much loved and well used. I love being warm when I go to sleep so once its cooled down I like the weight of it on my chest (something to do with anxiety relief (bit like those weighted blankets) … Don’t worry it’s done up super tight.

I suffer with poor circulation in my hands and feet so I like my feet to be kept toastie in bed… Actually at all times. So a pink pair of fluffy socks are usually found on my feet.

Music is so soothing when you play the right kind so either my headphones go on or my Alexa and usually soppy shit on the radio does the trick.

There’s a few apps too… One is insight timer which is a meditation app and the other is Sleepo which has relaxing sounds to sooth you at any time you need it. I love a crackling fire sound.

What are your bedtime essentials?

WHEN YOU BELIEVE

When it really comes down to it, you become the person you believe you’d become.

If you spend all your thoughts believing you won’t make it, you will never make it.

If you spend all your thoughts thinking that it’s impossible, it becomes impossible for you.

But if you spend your thoughts and energy believing it is possible, it suddenly becomes possible.

Doors will open for you, ideas will come your way. Your dreams will start coming true. You have everything you need within you to live your dreams,

But first of all you have to believe

10 years ago to now

Let’s take you back 10 years to the year 2009.

That January I had started the year with a hurting heart from being dumped just after Christmas. Turned out the bloke was a right dickhead.

I had lost a bit of weight in 2009 too after having my gallbladder out a few months before, so I was about 8 and a half stone.

Mum and me were also searching for a house as we had sold our house and needed to find one fast to move into. It was part of her divorce so decided to look for rented property. Just after Christmas that year we found it and moved in there in the Jan of 2010.

So now it’s the end of 2019 and wow what a year its been.

I started the year having my bladder out, and having a stoma, which has been quite a problematic thing so more surgery is needed soon.

I have found out who I really am, with my spirituality, my sexuality (I will fall in love with whoever I find attractive regardless of gender … Simple as that) and found out how strong I can be in shitty situations.

I’ve lost a friend I thought would always have my back, her loss. But also gained a really awesome friend she was in my year at school and I’m so glad to have her in my life as she makes me laugh so much and it feels like we’ve been good friends since like forever.

BLOGMAS #24

Wow, what an awesome 24 days it has been. Writing Christmas posts on my blog was a spur of the moment thing but so glad I did. It’s bought out my creativity and I’ve read some other bloggers blogmas posts which I loved reading .

So to finish it off I thought I would include my Christmas nails on Day 24. I painted them the weekend for a Christmas get together and yes they are my real nails…since I was 11 they’ve been that long. Mum was going to put me in for hand modelling at one stage.

I used Avons Gel Finish in the shade 12225 (like a real rouge red) typical there’s no name on the bottle.

That was the base and then I used Rimmel Glitter High Coverage in the shade 002 Ruby Crush.

I’ve had so many compliments asking if I had them professionally done. They took me all of 10 mins and I’m so happy with the results. Shows you don’t have to spend loads on your nails to get them noticed.

I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, thank you for taking the time to read my blog this year.

Best get planning for the year ahead on Holzieloves. If I don’t post on here before December is out I’ll definitely be back as soon as January is here.

Much loves xxx

BLOGMAS #6

Would you rather with a twist….all the questions are based around Christmas.

ok here goes….

imagesuql8dpst

WOULD YOU RATHER

Be stuck in a elevator with someone who loves Christmas or someone who hates Christmas?

Definitely someone who loves it as I hate a scrooge…it only comes once a year.

Find Olaf in your garden or Jack Frost?

Olaf hands down the dudes a legend.

Eat your own body weight in chocolate or Turkey?

Silly question I am a chocoholic so of course I’d pick chocolate just eat it slowly.

Never receive a Christmas present or Never eat a Christmas meal again?

I would rather give someone a present, nothing warms my heart more than seeing someone’s face light up and love my food too much.

Grow a permanent Santa beard or permanent Antlers?

As much as I dig a beard as impressive as Santas I would prefer Antlers for life, i think i would pull them off better.

Never listen to music again or be forced to listen to Mistletoe and wine 10 times a day?

Oh my I could never do without music and i really don’t like that song. Oooo crap, I think I would have to try and get used to the song and grin and bear it.

and lastly

Untangle 700 Christmas lights or Peel 700 Carrots?

I would pick the 700 lights, i reckon it would be rather therapeutic. I can’t peel a carrot to save my life so would be there for eternity.
