Increase Your Confidence Part 1 – Celebrate Your Wins

Confidence is something that I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember. It’s something that used to be ridiculously low. These days, I’m pretty confident in many ways. That being said, there are many areas which I know my confidence is still very much lacking. I think confidence is so important for our health and happiness. I know when my confidence is low, … Continue reading Increase Your Confidence Part 1 – Celebrate Your Wins

The Best Things in Life Are Free (50 Things I’m Grateful Of)

The saying “the best things in life are free” is so true. It’s not just a duet with Luther Vandross and Janet Jackson, but real happiness comes from so much more than stuff, status and wealth. It’s within.  There is nothing wrong with wanting external things or wanting to be financially free. In fact it makes life a lot less stressful and worrying when you … Continue reading The Best Things in Life Are Free (50 Things I’m Grateful Of)

Running & Mantra’s

This year I’ve started back running again after 6 months. I have to say I’m loving it. It’s hard going, I’m out of breath easily, but it’s me time. As I run I say a positive mantra and it’s like a form of meditation. Sometimes all I think about is “wow this is so hard” as I pant and struggle on, but every now and … Continue reading Running & Mantra’s

January Goals & 2017 Theme

One of my favourite YouTubers for self-help/personal development stuff is Aileen from Lavendaire. She recently posted a video all about her theme for 2017. Having a theme for the year isn’t something I’ve ever done or really thought about, but I found the video really inspiring and thought it was a brilliant idea. So my theme for 2017 is to feel connected. I already had … Continue reading January Goals & 2017 Theme

One Week Positive Challenge Results

A few weeks ago I decided to do a week’s positive challenge which meant no criticizing, judging, complaining or anything negative about myself or others for a week. Even if things went a bit funky, to really try to channel the optimist within and stop the habit of moaning about it. As life would have it somethings did happen that week that I struggled to … Continue reading One Week Positive Challenge Results

Body Then, Body Now!

This week I stumbled across some photos on my laptop from this Summer, that I didn’t even know my hubby had taken. I was just chatting away to my friend Hannah by the sea and was totally unaware to his snapping away. Until then I’d been beating myself up quite a lot about ‘letting myself go’. 3 years ago I was at the high of … Continue reading Body Then, Body Now!

One Week Postive Challenge

I’m reading a book called ‘The Power’ by Rhonda Byrne. One of the things it talks about extensively is about focusing on the positives rather than the negatives in life. I realised that although I always try to look for the good in situations I do find myself complaining, ranting, whingeing and criticising. So from tomorrow, I’m going to try to do a whole week … Continue reading One Week Postive Challenge
