A little bit of inspiration #4

HAPPY WEDNESDAY. I’ve missed the passed two weeks of these posts, however I’m back again with a bit of inspiration for you Wednesday.

Roald DahlI came across this little quote on Pinterest and just had to use it. 

I liked this because its so true and most definitely works. So many tiny things can affect the way we’re feeling leaving us sulking all day. But theres one incredibly simple way you can completely cure that – THINK HAPPILY.

Fill your thoughts with happy memories, future dreams, and general things that make YOU feel happy and replace all the horrible thoughts going round in your head. I guarantee it would make you feel 100% better. By you feeling happy, you’ll look ten times better and reflect your happiness onto the other people who need a bit of a lift and help them to feel better about their day. 

Also stick a smile on your face, that works too. By looking happy, you’ll begin to believe it – even on your worst day. And also make other people feel happier whilst you’re at it. 

So, RIGHT NOW as you read this –

1) Put a smile on your face

AND

2) Think of your happiest memory

Do you feel that little bit better?

 

Hope you’re having an amazing start to your Wednesday and read my other Wednesday posts here:

Family and sunny mondays

So last weeks Bank Holiday was also my brothers birthday so we decided to have a little trip to St Annes and go to the beach with Sully.

DSC_0162As you can see the above picture isn’t the best as I’m squinting because of how bright the sun was. Also, I was unaware that the photo was being taken. Hahaha.

It was such a lovely time there though. I love hot weather. Sun, shorts, Ice-cream – whats not to love? I realise todays post is quite short but I just wanted it to be a nice little update for my Friday.

What posts would you like to see next week?

ROLL ON WEEKEND

A little bit of inspiration #3

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Posting little inspirational posts has become part of a routine for my wednesdays so I hope you enjoy reading them.

never letAs per usual I took my image from Pinterest. However, the quote itself I stole from one of my favourite childhood films, A Cinderella Story.

I can relate to this quote as I often allow myself to get scared of doing something, whether it be something big or small, yet then let my fear prevent me from taking part in it. Sometimes I fear something before I even give it a try, so why let this fear stop you. Referring back to the quote, yes you might strike out but instead of letting it stop you from playing the game, learn from it and try again because one day the fear will be overcome when you don’t strike out. Also ‘What if I strike out?’ isn’t a good enough reason for keeping you from playing. What if you don’t stike out? What if you win the game?

Try to think positive, because you will succeed once you put your mind into it. And don’t let someting stupid prevent you from doing something that you love or that you REALLY want to do. Not doing something you wanted will only result in regret.

Do you enjoy reading these little posts? Have you ever watched A Cinderella Story?

A little post to tell you EVERYTHING i’ve been loving recently.

  1. Firstly, my favourite act so far on Britain’s Got Talent 2013 – Attraction. These fascinated me and their performance actually made me cry. I’m so excited to see more. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it HERE. Its impressive.
  2. I’ve recently become obsessed with Bastille. The songs are so peaceful and just really nice to listen to. Definitely my new fave.
  3. Last month I rediscovered Mint Aeros and my gosh they are too nice. I even bought a Mint Aero Milkshake and that was just as good. Mmmmm
  4. A couple of years ago I was really into wearing flowers in my hear and built up a bit of a collection, but when they got banned in school I completely forgot about them and just stuffed them away in a draw. But I recently got them back out again and I love wearing them, they are my new ‘thing’.
  5. Finally, look magazine. I have loved this magazine for SO long now and love the bits and pieces it features. I try to pick one up every week and love to flick through it. My collection of them is HUGE – I have a 2 draws and a bag full of them.

20130507-233641.jpg‘Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections’.

I came across this on Pinterest and thought it’d be nice to put on my blog to share with you. Basically, why let little things get you down in the dumps when you can simply look past them. Nobody has a ‘perfect’ life as nobody even knows what a perfect life is. But plenty of people live a happy life as that is so much easier to do.

Theres no excuse for not being happy. By dwelling on something for so long is only depriving you of happiness and doesn’t allow you to move forward. If something personal happened such as a death, of course its upsetting and i’m not saying I’d be happy as though nothing happened but eventually i’d begin to move foward with my life because dwelling on it and making myself feel unhappy all the time will never change what has happened or bring someone back – its just ruining your own chances of a happy life.

So if something brings you down and makes you feel like the world is against you, you must learn to move on because once you’ve looked beyond the imperfections and realised that everybody has problems in life, it will make you feel ten times better. Just remember, a happy life is NOT a perfect life.

Just a few items that I want to splash out on. Love them all so much. Hint hint for birthday Dad.

  1. So i’m obsessed with rose gold jewellery at the minute, all of it looks so pretty. And this watch is just gorgeous, want want want.
  2. I spotted this book on Amazon and thought it would be worth a read – always looking for a few hints and tips for my blog.
  3. The Ted Baker coat is just beautiful yet expensive. Its so summer-y yet practical for the English weather.
  4. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a Book Clutch of Pride and Prejudice and psbesitos have such cute purses. I’ve seen others but they don’t seem practical to use for an everyday clutch but these are just perfect and I definitely will be getting one soon.
  5. I’ve had my eye on the Top Shop boots as they are so pretty, but the price has been holding me back at £70 but I do love them. Unfortunately though, they no longer have my size – fingers crossed they will get more stock for me.

Happy Birthday to you

I thought i’d dedicate my Mondays post to my older brother Bradley as today is his 20th Birthday. So Happy Birthday Brad!

Birthdays are always a great time of the year as in my family we have all the family round for snacks and drinks. Our birthdays are made incredibly special thanks to our amazing Mum and Dad who organise little ‘parties’ with cakes and banners. I’m so greatful to have the family that I have.
