Highs & Lows From September

This blog has been a massive high! It’s made me take time out from my day and just stop to think about each post. Opening myself up on the internet is sometimes a scary thought. I’ve definitely had moments where I think I should make it private or change my name to something more creative so people I know don’t find me. But you know what… at the moment, I’ll be okay if someone I know asks me about my blog. Sure… I’ll more than likely be a little embarrassed but I enjoy writing about my life and others have enjoyed reading about it.

I witnessed one of my best friends get married and was so honoured to be her bridesmaid. We went to London to see the Harry Potter play. It was mine and Joel’s first year anniversary! It was a month full of love.

The only low points have just been ones created in my head. I trust the wait and embrace the uncertainty.

Grateful for this beautiful month of new beginnings and will continue to have faith in myself.

Something I’m Doing Well At

At the moment I feel like I’m doing well at staying present in the now.

I’m living a happy life and wanted to share the books that I had turned to on some dark days in the past. They made me appreciate the world and the human experience more so than ever before. I would definitely recommend these for anyone with an open mind and heart.

I’m fascinated by Louise Hay’s guidance on how positivity of the mind can cure an ailment you may be suffering from. Eckhart Tolle taught me to live in the moment and appreciate our Earth. As for Miranda, this was the first “self-help” book I ever bought and was the catalyst to my healthy wellbeing I try and live today.

They’re all beautiful books; different and unique in their own ways. I’ve done very well to keep the sceptic in me at bay and appreciate different opinions. In the end they all have one message in common… they want you to live a positive and happy life.

A Lesson I Learned The Hard Way

I thought my life would take a new direction a few years go. I told myself I deserved it. I worked my butt off. Others said I could do it.

Then life threw a curveball and was like… NOPE YOU CAN’T AND NOT EVEN SORRY!

I was devastated. I cried a lot and beat myself up for days but eventually I got better. Time healed my wounds and I soon realised that I had just learned this lesson the hard way.

Don’t expect anything from anyone.

I could have told myself said that life is cruel… it wasn’t fair… why me?! Then stomp my foot on the ground like a little girl.

Surprisingly though… I didn’t do that. It was a revelation. I wasn’t bitter or angry. I was more disappointed in myself that I had expected my life to head in a certain direction. This was my blessing in disguise.

I used this time to make some changes and try new things. This was when I started yoga, meditation and eating healthy. I researched spirituality and read books like ‘The Power of Now’ and ‘The Alchemist’ to expand my knowledge of how others see the world. It was a little changes like these that helped me gain focus. It was my refresh button.

It was a horrible and dark time for me. Now 2 years on, an opportunity came around again and I succeeded. Positive mind. Positive vibes. Positive life.
