My 2019 Plan!

We all know that I love to plan. I’m the master of planning. I am the Planinator, Planatron? She-Plan, Plan-Woman! And lots of other planning-isms… Therefore I obviously have a plan for 2019. I am positive that it will not be as intense as last year, I really should look at slowing down and finding some more ways to relax, spending time with my loved ones and replenishing my soul! I suppose then, that is my plan. Do less, live more and relax. I do have a few things lined up though… I couldn’t go cold turkey! A trip to … Continue reading My 2019 Plan!

Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.

  I have just returned from another fantastic holiday with my Mum and my son, we’ve been away together quite a few times and we always have so much fun. I adore the relationship that we have, it’s not like a tolerance because we’re family, I genuinely love spending time with both of them. We always have a laugh, sometimes at each others expense, and there’s plenty of silliness, usually from my Mum and I, whilst Christopher stands there and shakes his head. We don’t get on 24/7 of course, there are disagreements to be had, we’re only human, but … Continue reading Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.

How do you invest in yourself?

      “You can’t pour from an empty cup”, basically you need to fill the cup up to be able to pour from it. The same goes for you. If you’re emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, spent then you have nothing left to give and this will leave you feeling deflated. This is why you need to take the time to invest in yourself. Fill that cup back up. This isn’t all about relaxing and meditation and being all zen and calm, this is also about doing things for yourself. Things that you enjoy, taking the time to have a … Continue reading How do you invest in yourself?

Ahhh January, where dreams are made and ultimately destroyed.

The title has nothing to do with what I’m saying here, I just liked that title.         I made a decision in November that January would be a month of rest for me. I’ve been very stressed, tired and rushed off my feet. I knew December would be a busy one, when isn’t it? And so I promised myself that under no circumstances would I make any concrete plans for January. It’s an open month, chilled out, nothing stressful. I actually find this in itself to be stressful! I don’t know how to do nothing. I’m really … Continue reading Ahhh January, where dreams are made and ultimately destroyed.

My spiritual walk…

        I’m not religious. I would probably class myself as spiritual, actually I’d like to class myself as spiritual. I do not spend enough time being spiritual. My meditation time has been lacking recently and I am feeling very guilty. A few weeks ago I was telling you all how great it was making me feel and how I was experiencing some wonderful things. Well I admit, I’ve let it slip. I’ve recognised this error and my plan is to get back to it. I’m not entirely sure why I let it slip. It’s not as though … Continue reading My spiritual walk…

What is this pain?

I do not know what this pain is. I’m unsure if it is psychological or if I am suffering from one of these chronic pain disorders that seem to be surfacing recently. I do not doubt that many people suffer, daily, from invisible illnesses but because many are ‘invisible’ it’s difficult to determine who is telling the truth and who may be using it as an excuse. I was given the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia a few years ago but with regular exercise my symptoms decreased. Does this mean I do not have Fibro or that regular exercise can in fact … Continue reading What is this pain?

Letter To Me

Dear Future Self,   I hope things are well, I know they will be. As I’m writing this I am having an unusually positive day. I’m on top of things, study wise and that always helps. I’ve finished the ‘Blog Challenge’ that we were doing, but obviously you already know that. I suppose I should be giving you some advice to carry on with. For a start please stop worrying so much. Things can’t possibly be as bad as you imagine them to be. And if they are, you know there’s always an answer, a way out. Spend more time … Continue reading Letter To Me
