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.

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?

Had a little bit of a break

I’ve been a bit quiet haven’t I?

I had my surgery on Wed 22nd of January and all went well.

I was home 6 days later.

I feel so lucky because if when they opened me up and all was stuck together I’d still be in hospital with more than what I did have done.

Even though I have touched on here about having a stoma bag for my wee I don’t want to talk too much about it as some readers may be grosed out.

So I have just started a 2nd blog that I’ll be posting on once a week talking about living with a bag. Some health tips too.

If you want to be super lovely come and follow me here at www.stomabaglife.co.uk

Don’t worry posts on HOLZIELOVES will still be regular. Just give me a few weeks if it’s slow to build up my stamina of writing again.

Love you all 😘

MONDAY MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES

I know the weekend was probably great and you didn’t want to wake up this morning because Monday always happens after Sunday 🙈

So I’ve found a few positive quotes about Mondays

If you wallow in the fact it’s Monday you won’t get stuff done so go out and create the life you want.

I like to think of every week as a fresh, so Mondays are just that. Fresh starts to do great things with your life.

If you don’t have a plan for the days ahead you have no vision. So get planning.

I love this song. It’s a reminder that it takes a little effort but if you put your back into it you can do it, do it, DO IT. sorry was breaking out into song then 😂

Happy Monday… Make yours motivational physically and mentally.

Of course having one diary can of course be helpful… But sometimes if you are a stationery addict and like getting your shit together then include some of these kind of notebooks/ journals below.

So this is a weekly spread type diary. Where you can quickly note down what you have to do or have done. I like to use this for keeping track of when my blog posts have been published. To look back on the topics with ease. Love the little note section on the opposite side, really helpful.

This is my book I write in every night. It has a space at the top to write what went on in the day, you could even draw there instead. It also asks you a question that gets you thinking. I like the concept of that.

This notepad only arrived yesterday and I was so excited. It has so many pages and 10 sections. Got to plan what subjects are going in there. It was really affordable and can be used for literally anything.

Lastly I have a 5 minute ls before bed journal which I don’t think would see you through the year so it’s one to more down special things in. I want it to be a positive thought provoking one. But you can use them as you wish. I had it for Christmas but I am pretty sure Paperchase still do it.

Am I the only stationery obsessed one around here, i hope not.
