Time For Change

This blog is a secret no longer! I announced on my Twitter this afternoon that katiestocker.com is here and I’m so happy. ☺️

I love writing and have to stop comparing myself to others in every aspect of my life. This is a type of blog I enjoy reading and if others don’t, well that’s okay.

I love this passage from Louise Hay:

Often what we think of as the things “wrong” with us are only our expressions of our own individuality. This is our uniqueness and what is special about us. Nature never repeats itself. Since time began on this planet, there have never been two snowflakes alike or two raindrops the same. And every daisy is different from every other daisy. Our fingerprints are different, and we are different. We are meant to be different. When we can accept this, then there is no competition and no comparison. To try to be like another is to shrivel our soul. We have come to this planet to express who we are. I didn’t even know who I was until I began to learn to love myself as I am in this moment.

We all have to stop comparing and worrying what others think and just do right by ourselves. I’m learning to love myself more and more one day at a time. So I’ll just keep posting about anything and everything I love and want to write about, regardless! 💖

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.
