Things you can control

In life there are some things you can’t control but there are plenty of things you can.

Here are a few below to digest

 

Your beliefs

Your attitude

Your thoughts

Your perspective

How honest you are

Who your friends are

What books you read

How often you exercise

What food you eat

What risks you take

How kind you are

How often you say I love you

How often you say thank you

How you express your feelings

Whether or not you ask for help

How many times a day you smile

The amount of effort you put into things

Standing up to a bully

After 17 years – that’s how long since I left school you would think that bullying may have been a thing of the past. To be honest I think it’s got 10 times worse.

I was sadly a victim of bullying from alot of my year at school all because my skin wasn’t clear. I was verbally abused and then come the end of school physically.

It won’t ever leave me, but I always think I never want anyone else to have the sadness and pain I did. I know in reality that there will be thousands in the world who will feel the same pain.

Here is how you can spot a cactus friend – those that pretend to be your friend then stab you in the back…and a flower friend – the ones who truly love you and love to see you bloom.

They say it takes a bigger person to walk away from a bully. If you feel strong enough inside to stand up for yourself then don’t let someone walk all over you. But in turn don’t be horrible and become a bully in the process.

Bullying doesn’t just doesn’t happen when you’re young… People of any age fall victim and its so very sad. Cyber crime is on the up as people find it an easy way to target the vulnerable.

If we keep speaking about anti bullying, and looking after ourselves and our friends maybe one day it’ll be something we don’t have to worry about.

Make someone else’s day

Even though I haven’t stepped foot outside my front door today I have made sure that I’ve made some people smile today

I have had a couple conversations on the phone, and I made sure there was a bit of laughter in there somewhere. I always think if I’ve made at least one person happy then I am happy.

On my Instagram I couldn’t help but show the silly side of me with a good old sing-along and a Snapchat filter

Here it is 🙈

Sometimes people won’t be having a good day and might not have it in them to let you know. But a little cheerfulness goes a long long way.

The days not out so go make someone’s day.

October Favourites

October is coming to a close and November is waiting in the wings

I am quite sad October can’t go on for longer it’s my favourite month of the year

Anyways let’s get back to why we are here.

These things brought me joy this month.

PUMA TRAINERS

Mum asked me if there was anything specific that I wanted for my birthday… Well I had seen these on ASOS and said these would be perfect (for when we in England get dry days) so this was what she got me. Normally I don’t get any named trainers but they were pink and they did half sizes so I was happy I could get them.

WATERMELON LOLLY

I think I may have mentioned these before. They are by Rowntree – the people who make fruit pastilles they make these ice lollies too.

They are so bloody yum and I think about 60 calories so don’t worry if you are on a healthy diet these would be a great pick for a treat.

SELF CARE BOOK

I got some books a couple of weeks ago as I need to get my nerd on. I’m a writer, but when it comes to books I need to try concentrate on getting it finished. This one is a self help book and at the mo it’s got 5 stars from me. It’s small enough to fit into a inside coat pocket or a handbag.

BOURJOIS LIP DUO SCULPT

Last month I went in search for a lipstick that was autumn appropriate in its shade and long lasting. The shade is like the colour of my nails. I believe in this range there’s another 2 or 3. Superdrug or boots normally have make up offers so go spoil yourself.

ROCKETMAN ON DVD

This was another thing I had for my birthday, this was from my Sister.

If you haven’t heard of it it’s a story of Elton John’s life. It was quite sad to see what he went through to get to where he is now . It did have Happy moments in it and alot of his music. So if you like films that are like musicals, you’ll love this one.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Not much of an explanation needed just some people are worth the second chance and some are not worth your energy.

I hope you have had a lovely October…

Feel free to leave below something that made your month

Blogger points : a monthly plan

Some of us just write a blog post and post it and aren’t overly fussed about how it does or who it’s inspired.

However the majority of us do, as it shows how you grow in your journey of blogging.

So I thought about the types of things we all could do throughout the month to stay ahead of ourselves.

– Publish new blog post

– Respond to comments

– Ensure all links in post work correctly

– Comment on 5-10 peoples blog posts

– Browse Internet for inspiration

– Promote on all your social media platforms

– Check and respond to ant emails / DMs you have

– Plan and start writing your next post

– Make mind maps or bullet points for future posts

– Use Pinterest to get ideas

– Take photographs, find graphics and quotes to use in your blog posts.

– Continue to share your posts over on your socials but don’t over do it… You don’t want to appear annoying.

– Have a evaluation of how your blog is performing, print out the insights and see which ones your readers are most interested in

– Improve on things in your blog that you spot isn’t working so great, maybe your schedule of the days you post or the type of content you put out.

– Look at the theme and think do you still love it, because if you don’t… It needs to change.

I could go on and on but those were just a few pointers.

The most important thing is to interact with your readers in your blog post, the comments and then in their blog posts too. Be a loyal follower 🌸
