Stress and struggles of life, my thoughts shared with the world.

Beautiful words

Some days I really struggle with peoples attitudes and personalities, I wonder what happened in their child hood to make them such two face horrible people!? I know I am not perfect but I would never purposely say or do something to hurt someone and make them feel worthless and I think people who talk behind other peoples backs are cowards.  I deal with a few people in my life like this and it can be very hard to keep a smile on my face and very exhausting not to just tell them how I feel (I am rather strong willed!) so here are some beautiful words to help you get past these toxic people and live your life how you want to, happy and free!

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason.  If you get a chance, take it.  If it changes your life, let it.  Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. I believe in karma, you get out what you put in and the people who have done you wrong with get kicked up the bum (or worse) by karma!

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. When you think it is the end of the world…don’t, there is something amazing around the corner!

Life is beautiful. And far to short, ignore all the haters and be who you are.

Do what makes you happy, be with who makes you smile, laugh as much as you breathe, love as long as you live. If your happy doing what you do and are happy with who you are with then no-one should ever have a problem with it!

As we grow up we realise it is less important to have lots of friends and more important to have real ones. Do all those people you added on Facebook really count?  Would they be there for you  if you really needed them?

Think happy be happy! What else can I say…

I hope these beautiful words stick with you and help you deal with some of the negative people we all come across in life, do you have any favourite quotes or nice phrases you live your life by? I would love to hear them!

Stay beautiful on the inside Xx

Feeling blahhhhh?

I really don’t like the fact that day light savings is over and so is summer but there is a bright side to this madness and I have a few small tips to get you in the mood for the cold months ahead!

  • It is lighter in the morning and gets dark a lot quicker at night so why not rug up, get your running shoes on and get out for a jog in the crisp air before work! It will wake you up and give you more energy for the day and once you are getting your heart rate up your whole body will warm up!
  • Even though I love summer I really enjoy buying winter clothes and getting all rugged up, why not get creative and make a scarf or some mittens ready for the frost! Or go on a winter clothes shopping spree with your girl friends.
  • I am stuck in an office all day but I always try to get away from my computer on my lunch break – put on a jacket and grab your umbrella and get out for some fresh air, when I come back to my desk I feel refreshed and the last part of the day flies by.
  • Feeling cold, did you know that if you picture something warm like a fire or the sun it can actually make you feel warmer, its always best to wear too many items of clothing than not enough.
  • Crappy and rainy on the weekend? Go and see a movie or get the girls together and meet at your fav café for a coffee.

If you are feeling a little sluggish at the moment keep the flu at bay with lots of vitamin C, drink warm lemon drinks in the morning they are great for getting all the toxins out of your body and also give you that vitamin kick you’ll need to fight off colds and flu’s.

So make the most of the sun while you can (if there is any) and don’t be afraid of Autumn and Winter, its a great time to snuggle up with a good book or a DVD to  watch and you can still get out there and keep fit and healthy!

Have a great Easter weekend – lets hope we can keep the sunshine for one more week Xx

Get inspired

I have been feeling a little inspired lately, my attitude has changed about a lot of things and I am excited about new adventures in my life, I have to admit that I usually hate even the thought of change but now I want to welcome it!

I think a lot of us see change as a negative when really most of the time it’s a positive – and you know what they say –  “a change is as good as a rest” I don’t know who ‘they’ are, but I think I like them.

If you have been feeling a little blahh then you need to make some changes in your life! It could be as simple as having a clean out in your bedroom, sort through some of your old clothes and give them away to the needy. Are you board at work, approach your boss and ask for something more challenging and exciting. Maybe your relationship isn’t going well, leave it behind! Set yourself some goals and make a plan to stick to them!

I have been reading a lot of blogs lately from some amazing people who have decided to quit their jobs and chase their dreams, work for themselves, travel the world and even go back to uni for a new career, sometimes we get stuck in a rut and we don’t take the time to think about what it is we really want….

So what is it you want? What are your dreams? What gets you excited and inspired? Write the answers to these questions down and think to yourself if you had an endless supply of money would you do them? You can live your life thinking one day….one day when I have the time or the money…. well that should never be a barrier!

Are you scared you might fail? Maybe you are scared of your success? You never know what could happen if you don’t do it! I propose that you create yourself a vision or dream board, it doesn’t have to be fancy, you can write your dreams and goals on it, cut pictures out of magazines or get out there and take some photographs of the things you want and the things you want to achieve. Hang it on your bedroom wall where you can see it everyday to remind yourself of what the future can bring and what you want to achieve!

Want to feel happy and excited about things? Get out there!! Choose a hobby, take up a sport or running, join a book club, the world is your oyster and life is what YOU make it! I have never played netball before but I just joined a team for fun, I have met new people and I get some extra exercise! A friend of mine decided to start her own book club with friends from all over the world – they each purchase or borrow the same book and give themselves a month to read it then Skype each other about what they thought of the book.

Life is short and it should be fun and filled with happiness, so get out there and be inspired by what the world has to offer!

What are you waiting for? Xx
