I haven't felt the need or the want to talk about COVID-19. As I feel that it has been covered in everyway possible and we're bombarded by it and cannot seem to get away from it! 😒 ♡ But I will say this... most of the time I'm fine and I'm like "I can handle this not going out thingy" and I'm appreciative of the extra time I have with my family, the video calls 👩‍💻 with family and colleagues...and I am sooo productive at work. Being home based I already have the set up... ♡ Then on the other hand I'm like "What is the point?!" and "How long is this going to go on for!!" And both of those feelings are fine and valid 😌 I know that as a family, life after COVID-19 will be different. My boy has been saying to things like "Mummy....when we're allowed to go out, can we go to...." or "Can we do...." and I say yes 💯 to everything because I'm determined to fully live life when all this is over. I miss going for walks in the Derbyshire countryside 🏞driving to my Mums for a visit, popping to the Inlaws for a catch up, meeting up with my friends, seeing my cousins and going away for the weekend....and everything in between... ♡ What keeps me going and positive is that I'm using this time to make some concrete plans. Things that I uuurrm'd and aaahhh'd about are now a "I'm definitely doing that!" 🤩 It has put a lot of things into perspective for me and made me think that if everything stopped tomorrow, would I have achieved and done the things I wanted...? This gives me the drive and determination to just go for it 💪🏾what positives have come out of this situation for you?

Ooh I love a good letting go of 💩! If there is anything I've learnt on this crazy year it is this🤪 Do not hold onto stuff! Have a good rant or vent! 😤Release all of those feelings.

Hope you've had a fabulous weekend! Mine consisted of seeing a good friend, chilling with my family and of course writing November's second blog post! ♡ Y'all wanted me to write a post on "How to be confident" Maybe you have a big important meeting coming up or an interview for the job of your dreams or you're naturally timid or you want to get yourself out there and meet others but.... You're just not confident enough to do it... something holds you back. It infuriates you; you scold yourself and you carry on not daring to try new things or give your passion another thought, but there's another option.... Get at the link in my bio to read more.

I need to post my face more! Are my thoughts lately.... I get a day where the sunlight is right or I like how my hair looks or I like the outfit I'm wearing and I say to myself "This is the day!" ♡ I take 100 pictures and decide I look like Shrek 👹 and will take some another day 🤣 or I go across to snapchat that I have no idea how to really use and just mess about with the cool, freaky filters (I swear snapchat is evil!) and think I look cute! But don't post them because they aren't a "true representation of me" Uuuggh whatever! 😣 Long story short, I have good days like; "Girl you slay" "You look like a queen!" "My husband is a lucky man" "No wonder our boy is so gorgeous" 🥰 That can quickly change to; "Why does my head look lopsided?" "My eyebrows look like mama worm chasing baby worm" "Is that what other people see?damn!!" ♡ And I'm working on it! I love myself more days than I don't and that is progress! Baby steps! It's a marathon, not a sprint. For today though, I'm loving my hair! Braids by ME and channeling my inner Egyptian Queen👸🏾 Yes I went there! Haha! In the meantime enjoy some snapchat pics of me.

Some of my best ideas, inspirational thoughts come when....yep! You guessed it! In the shower! 🚿 🤣 I guess that's where I think of the day ahead, what tasks I need to do, what I want to achieve, how I wish the day to go and who I need to be to accomplish the day...

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right! 😱 Read that again!

It's you! So if you think you can't it's true or if you think you can you are right! It's in your hands! Change your belief, change your perception, change your life... ♡ When I realised this myself it was a game changer and I knew that I needed to work on self limiting beliefs around what I could achieve.

As I've taken on new challenges on this year and taken myself from my comfort zone, I have felt very much out of place. ♡ Growth takes you to new places that are unknown to you and for me my brain has gone into overload. Overthinking or over analysing things, situations; that critical voice tries to rear it's ungly head... ♡ To combat this I remind myself that "I am not my thoughts" and just because I'm thinking them, it doesn't make them true.

After feeling a lil overwhelmed and tired last week; the end of the week along with my weekend, I have come to some revelations 😅  Then it made me think that if everything happened how I thought it should have, I wouldn't of have come to the conclusions I have done. ♡ It reminded me that things are always happening in the background, responding to what you need 🌌 even though at the time, it feels crap, is annoying, messes with your plans or makes you feel let down... I'm still working on not letting outside factors disturb my inner peace. 😌🧘🏾‍♀️😇 You gotta start somewhere right??! 🤣 And you know what...

The body achieves, what the mind believes! ♡ This though 😍 Completely sums up what I have recently come to believe! I've always been a person with dreams and played scenarios out in my head before the actual event... I thought everyone did. It prepares my mind before the event, so I go in with the correct mindset and the chance to make the most out of the experience...🧘🏾‍♀️🌌 ♡ I've imagined myself in meetings and the person I needed to be. I've visualised myself in interviews and what I'd say. It works! ♡ We're taught to grow up and leave all the fantasy stuff behind; get in the real world and earn to survive. 😤 I say, life is about more than that. If you have to put limits on your imagination, what a sad life it is.😥 ♡ I don't like to say, do this or do that, but for this, I highly recommend that you dream big, then dream bigger!💫 Your body doesn't know the difference! 🤯 No one has a say over the life your imagination can create, use it to create a life you love...❤💜🧡 Follow @shebelieved.shecould.soshedid for more... ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ #writersofinstagram #prosperity #loa #mindovermatter #consciousness #meditation #trusttheprocess #healthymindset #perspectives #soulsearching #womensupportwomen #lifepurpose #healthyhabits #visualisation #hypnotherapist #selfbelief #browngirlbloggers #positiveliving #dailycalm #lawofvibration #livewithintention #positiveselftalk #powerofthought #manifestyourlife #loaquotes #nottinghamblogger #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

New blog post alert! ✍🏾 Happy Monday! ♡ Kicking off this week with thoughts around kindness. 🥰 When I first thought of an idea of how I can live my dream, I couldn't really imagine being the cut throat, business is never personal kind of person; as this is what my idea of what it took to be successful was... I thought, "There must be another way!" ♡ This lead me to the question of "Can you have a business based on kindness?"🤔 ♡ If you've wondered the same, feel you are shy or too introvert to possibly have financial freedom 💲 this post is definitely for you! If, on the other hand you just fancy a positive start to your week, then it's also for you 😉 Pop across to the link in my bio for a informative, inspirational and motivational read to get your week onto the right start!

Take notice of behaviours you think of as personality traits. 🧐 ♡ I've recently noticed certain traits that I took as "just part of me" are not that at all. 🤯 They were behaviours that I adopted when I was in a situation where survival mode was activated. Don't get me wrong, these behaviours helped, but they no longer serve me, therefore need to change. 💫 ♡ When I first started living literally, on my own, which all teenagers aspire to and all 20 somethings wanted, no body spoke of how lonely it can be.😥 So to survive, I filled my days, evenings and weekends with activities... I always had to know what I was doing, even if it meant, busy doing nothing. 🏃🏾‍♀️ ♡ Fastforward to today, I find myself fidgeting and looking for stuff to do when it's not necessary. So, I have taught myself to be still, took up meditating🧘🏾‍♀️and taking time out for me to just do.....nothing. I am still working on this and learning that it is ok to do nothing, ok to just chill out and not have something planned for every second of the day.💆🏿‍♀️ ♡ So here's your chance to check in with yourself.

Birds of a feather flock together...as the saying goes. I think who you hang with on a regular basis is a reflection on who you are or who you want to be... ♡ Me saying that either, makes you happy or rears up your defensiveness. Either way it goes without saying that if people are positive and encouraging around you, you'll feel energised when around them and inspired. If on the other hand they're negative, you'll feel drained, exhausted and uninspired. ♡ So what to do about it? If the latter, spend more time with those that inspire you, encourage and motivate or are just generally happy with life. If you haven't got those around you...go find it!!! ♡ It's your life, start taking control! Who surrounds you in your life?

I was once scolded by someone over DM in Instagram because she was trying to get me involved in a MLM scheme and I wasn't interested, so I politely declined. ♡ She asked me what I enjoyed doing. I responded by saying 'I enjoy helping people' and she said 'Yeah but you can't make money from that!' ♡ Maybe you can't, maybe you can, but that isn't my objective when I help someone. I genuinely get pleasure out of it... ♡ Why is it that we have to attach monetary value to everything in life, as if it's not worth doing, unless you're earning...

Happy Friday you beautiful lot! ♡ Have you ever looked back on a significant moment in your life and thought...

Step aside and get out of your own way! ♡ This is what I had to do to realise my own potential... Unknowingly, I'd been stopping myself from achieving what I really wanted for years. ♡ They come in the shape of excuses, doubt, fear, comparison or negative self talk. ♡ Maybe you will or maybe you won't, but either way, you have to try first to find out. Otherwise you'll utter those words dreaded words... I SHOULD'VE done.... then I WOULD'VE..... Then maybe I COULD'VE... ♡ Don't put yourself through the should've, Would've, could've talk... it serves no purpose. Instead put yourself to the test and see what happens....life is for living, not regretting. ♡ Don't have the money? Then figure how you can get it. Don't have the time?

🤳🏾When that sunlight hits right 🥰 I'm feeling myself 😘 ♡ Practising positive self talk feels weird and uncomfortable at first. It feels alien, forced and fake. Why? Well, if you're anything like me, it's just not what you're used to. ♡ For years that critical voice 🗣has taken the lead and become second nature. So when you switch it up, it's a strange experience. But try it!!! You've tried the other way for years, why not flip the script! 🤪 ♡ Plus, it's a marathon not a sprint.😅 If you're not going to try it now, then when?

Worry less, live more! 💯 Here's a lil trick I learnt that has helped me. ♡ The fella and I were reflecting over the week gone by and how we slipped and let little things get to us. We vowed to pull each other up when/if we could see the other slipping for the next two weeks. ♡ What I say to you is this; why use your creative, unlimited imagination to vision the worse situation that you possibly could?! Why not use it to create the best and most positive outcome instead? Give it a try! Meditate on it! Day dream on it! Have fun with it! ♡ Last week I kept replaying a scenario that I wish I had approached differently. So I did a Paul Mckenna trick...😎 I replayed the memory as it happened, then rewound it and played it back with how I wish it had gone. Then I rewond the memory again 🙃 and replayed it with the person with a funny squeeky voice and mickey mouse ears... It made me roll 🤣 and I haven't looked at that memory with the same emotional attachment since! ♡ You are the creator! Have you slipped or spiralled this week?🤪 Have a go at this trick and tell me how it worked for you in the comments 👇🏿👇🏽👇🏻 ♡ Join us in recognising when you're slipping! (Image source; Pinterest).

My body is a beautiful expression of my individuality 🥰 ♡ This is an affirmation I've been using for a few months, because as most women (and some men of course) know, we have been conditioned to find constant fault with our bodies or appearances and buy products, medical procedures or services to "fix" them. 😤 ♡ I think unlearning all of this takes time and learning to love all your lumps and bumps is a journey 🧘🏾‍♀️ Instead of beating myself up for all the things my body isn't, I've started loving my body for all the things and ways it has and continues to provide for me💪🏾 ♡ For all the billions of cells that provide for my every need without question 🧬 for my epic immune system that keeps all those germs at bay🤧The fact that this body created another life and kept him safe for 39 weeks (and then some!)🤰🏾 ♡ For the first time in years, I had a spontaneous positive thought pop into my head, as I walked past a mirror!😮 It may seem silly, but my internal dialogue when it comes to appearance is more often than not, quite critical. So for me, this was truly a pinnicle moment! 🥰 I put it down to positive affirmations, reading body positive books, being introduced to the body positive community and a new way of thinking. ♡ I have a long way to go, but this is a start.

Plot Twist! 😯 Happy Friday! * I absolutely love this way of thinking! How empowering to think of a blunder, stumble, a shitty situation, an unwanted, unexpected event or a bad move in your life as a "plot twist" rather than a disaster! 💪🏾 * Plot twists in a film are full of thrills , fun, raise curiosity, build suspence and cause excitement; why can't they also be that in life too? * Me and my other half have got a saying lately because this year has been full of plot twists..."Did you die though?" ☠ And the answer is obviously NO! 🤣😂 You have got to find the funny side in the face of adversities! * Have you had a "plot twist" recently?

The old school thought around success is that you should work HARD😥! Have countless sleepless nights😴, give up time with family, just grab whatever food to eat🍔, work 16 hour days, forget exercise etc... and don't get me wrong, you do have to work and focus on what you want and have a certain amount of struggle. However, working yourself to the point that it effects your close relationships, your mental health, and self care becomes self neglect... no ta!🚫 * When you are properly aligned with who you are and what you're supposed to do things start to FLOW. Not saying no effort is required, but things kinda just fall into place. * Of course, things will come along and try and knock you off your alignment. You'll be tested for sure. Are you truly aligned? * I took part in a course "Alignment is the new hustle" which helped me figure out A LOT. It kind of gave me direction to what I should be doing. I wrote a blog about it. Naturally 😂 Check out the link in bio "Align. Don't Hustle" Let me know what you think in the comments below 👇🏽👇🏻👇🏿 * * * * * * #alignmentisthenewhustle #align #alignment #aligndonthustle #trueself #highvibrations #selfempowerment #selfwork #consciousness #trusttheprocess #personalgrowth #selfhelp #selflove #selfcare #mentalhealth #feelgood #feelgoodvibes #positivity #selfbelief #selfcarematters #sheblogs #browngirlbloggers #higherlearning #selfprogression #nottinghamblogger #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

Are you a lifelong learner? * I've always loved learning new things and never professed to know everything or be the "expert" * I always know there's room for improvement and I'm open to criticism and as you know I love to self reflect. * My path so far has led me on an amazingly empowering journey and opened my eyes to another avenue I have, in the past dismissed, due to self limiting beliefs! * Learning something completely new, as I have done this weekend has taken me completely out of my comfort zone in every way possible and you know what....?

What did the Instagram Ban do for me? * You may remember back in June/July I was banned from engaging and doing normal IG activities and I was very quiet for a while. * In the video post I explain why I was banned.

Happy Wednesday you beautiful lot! * As I was scrolling through my phone, thinking what to post and I saw this picture and thought it shows another side of me, that I don't necessarily talk about. * So here's me and my beautiful boy! The smile on my face says it all really. He's my pride and joy! He lights up mine and his dad's life soooo much! I always wanted to be a mum since I can remember, but nothing can prepare you for the unconditional love that pours into your heart! And of course the challenges being a parent brings. * We had a night without him last night, which most parents dream of and I whittled so much and couldn't relax. Having time without him made me realise how lucky I am in my life. Don't get me wrong, I practice gratitude daily now, but it still doesn't compare to actually experiencing being without him. If only for one night. * I love you so much baby boy. Thank you for making me grow in ways I would never have understood without you! * So take this as a reminder to practice gratitude daily...what or who are you grateful for? * * * * * #mumlife #workingmumlife #consciousness #appreciation #personalgrowth #dailycalm #positivity #growth #growthmindset #empowerment #writersofinstagram #loaquotes #attitudeofgratitude #browngirlbloggers #positiveliving #selfreflection #lifepurpose #healthymindset #perspectives #womansupportwomen #selfmastery #spiritualist #familylife #businessmindset #higherlearning #blackwomaninbusiness #mumlove #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

Abso-friggin-lutely! * This resonated with me so much when I saw it! I have gone back to some old (positive) behaviours and forged some new ones that are assisting me in navigating through this journey and it seriously feels as if I have 'come home' * It's ok to lose who you are It's ok to stray from the path It's ok to wonder what the hell is going on Trust that everything will fall back into place Know that you are exactly where you're supposed to be in life. * I saw a post on IG that simple said 'Your energies aren't blocked. Everything is revealed at the time it's supposed to. If it didn't you wouldn't be able to handle it' * Made me think....what are your thoughts? Welcome back!

Gratitude is your superpower! * Don't believe me! Give it a try! * Feeling shit about a situation? Think about what you learnt from it and be thankful. * Sad that you didn't get your dream job? Be thankful for the job you have. Get feedback and do better next time. * Sorry for that relationship that ended? Be appreciative of the memories and that you dared to love! Next time love even harder. * Kid driving you nuts. Be grateful for the cheeky looks, the tearful hugs and the thankless dinners made, for out there, someone wishes they could have what you do. * Try not to dwell on the have nots and concentrate and be happy for what you have and see how your perspective changes. You cannot wait for external factors to make you happy or you'll forever be chasing that. Be happy now. * Pray on it. Meditate on it. Base a mantra around it. Affirm it. Make it your daily ritual to be thankful. * I meditate, mantra and affirm all of that gratitude! It helps me when I dare to think 'Why me!?'

Take a chance, because you just never know! * I've learnt many things during this #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief and one of them is this... TAKE A CHANCE! * If you want to do or try something new then do it! Have doubts? Do it! Negative comments from others? Do it! Fear of what may happen? Do it! Someones told you you can't? Do it! What is the worse that can happen? Your ego gets bruised? Well maybe it needs to be kept in check or maybe, just maybe, this is your opportunity to shine! * Dream job? Apply for it?

I don't do "Should've, Would've or Could'ves" Why? Because they serve no purpose at all! I live by no regrets. Everything that has happened, happened for a reason. They bought you to this point in life. Even those memories you cringe at and yes, that partner you had and that embarrassing thing you did. They all served a purpose to get you right here! * That may comfort you or terrify you. However, no matter which way you look at the past, it won't change by you worrying about those three things "I should've done this...then that would've happened, then I could've done that..." Really what is the point?! Ask yourself...how are you benefiting from running over the same scenarios? Please stop beating yourself up and start saying to yourself "Ok that was shit! How can I ensure that never happens again? What can I take from this?" "What have I learnt?" * It happened, you experienced what you did, you felt how you felt, you learned from it, release it and let it go....for your own sake. * Start rehearsing your future! Make shit up! What you WOULD like to happen, and SHOULD it happen, what COULD you achieve? * * * * * #noregrets #noregretsonlylessons #youarecreators #mindovermatter #consciousness #trusttheprocess #personalgrowth #selfhelp #selflove #selfcare #selfbelief #browngirlbloggers #positiveliving #selfreflection #Higherlearning #happymind #thepowerofnow #womanlikeme #acceptyourself #copingskills #lessonsoflife #innergrowth #selfgrowthjourney #nottinghamwriter #nottinghampoet #browngirlbloggeruk #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

Don't be afraid to have the converstions you're afraid to have. • What do I mean by that? I feel we go through life not daring to speak from our heart, out of fear of judgement, being seen as different or dubbed a weirdo. Waiting for the queues from others to say "It's ok and I'm on your level" • Conversations make connections. Connections form togetherness. Togetherness breeds oneness. Oneness leads to Balance. • If we all have balance within us, then together as one, we all can achieve...well anything we want really. • So what am I saying? Have those conversations. Send people that book that gave you new insight or share that clip you found interesting or repost that post that touched your soul. Ask those questions... "Have you heard of this, that or the other? No, well, I'll send you some info, but it describes...." • Let's start having those conversations that years ago were, deemed alternative or hippyish. I often share things I've come across or learnt in my Facebook group as I'm excited by it and feel it will enrich people's lives, as it has mine...

Alignment is the New Hustle | Finally! Here's to the launch of my new website!

I am patient... ....Is an affirmation that I use throughout my day. I have noted that a part of my personality feels the need to control and over analyse circumstances/situations/events or become frustrated when things do not happen when or how I 'think' they should. • At a point in my life, maybe this behavior may have been necessary to succeed or survive, but now it is not. Therefore, requires unlearning and relearning a different, more serving behaviour. • Patients... Understanding that it's ok not to know every future move, it's ok not to understand the why's, where's or how's or for that thing/event not to go as I envisioned. • Are you holding onto behaviours that no longer serve you? • • • • • #selflove #selfcare #safespace #shadowwork #unservingbehaviours #mantra #affirmations #growth #personaldevelopment #soulsearching #higherself #higherconsciousness #positivity #selfbelief #raisethevibetribe #positivementalattitude #reflection #consciousness #wearenotmachines #enlightenment #speakitintoexistence #lessonsoflife #focus #consciousness #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

I'm constantly challenging myself in my day to day life and I like to think I live up to my word. So, here's me reading one of my poems that I promised quite a few weeks ago.

The only one that matters is the YES! • When you look at this post, you see lots of no's, but the main thing that stands out is that one YES! • Ok, the YES is bigger than the NO's and it's smack bang in the middle but.... It is the only thing that matters! On your journey to achieving your own idea of happiness, success, whatever it may be, you may come across closed doors to the direction that you THINK, at the time, is the correct way to go....and you may get disheartened or angry even, if you get the 'NO'. I know I have! • But what I've learnt is, that 'NO', is often saving you from a path that isn't meant for you. Maybe it's the wrong time or would divert you away from what you're supposed to do. Try not to get upset, close down or give up...Keep on knocking on other doors... If it's the right one, you'll get the YES you're meant to find...trust the process.... • Happy hump day! Hope your mid week brings wonders! • • • • #midweekmotivation #selfcare #selflove #wearenotmachines #turnnegativetopositive #trusttheprocess #positivementalattitude #staymotivated #attitudeofgratitude #reflection #mindovermatter #empowerment #encouragement #safespace #believeitachieveit #opportunist #opportunities #power #togetherwerise #womensupportingwomen #poetsofinstagram #sheblogs #browngirlbloggers #writersofinstagram #selfbelifquotes #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

I had an amazing session with @healingforshe on Sunday! • I'll be absolutely honest with you....I've never had any kind of therapy/counselling or one to one session focussing on me, as an individual and you know what....It was very empowering! • And no, this is not an ad or paid sponsorship. This is a genuine example of women supporting women and celebrating and appreciating each others powers. • I met Caroline at the Beestonword poetry evening....both novices and trying out our forgotten passion, so from then on, we shared a bond... • Caroline held a space for me as she sensed that I was going through a significant (and difficult) time in my life and wanted to offer me this space to heal • And I tell you...in 40 minutes we covered so much! ....Unrecognised self limiting beliefs ....Inner message from my higher self ....New positive affirmations and mantras that I could use and how to integrate them into my daily routine more effectively ....Recognising my own achievements • For me though, one of the most poignant realisations from the session was that going forward, not to be afraid to show up as my true full self...and this was just some of what we covered! • I honestly do not know why I have never done this before! There is still stigma attached to therapy/counselling/healing sessions and I completely agree with a good friend of mine who says that "Everyone should have counselling in their life" This is another activity and new experience on my #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief • Thanks again Caroline!

When you realise you're onto something... • I've been reading lots lately and as everything else, I come across ideas and topics I can discuss, walk through and make sense of through my blog... • Whilst on my journey I have encountered lots of 'coincidences' Things that have confirmed what I have written about in my blogs, answered questions that I didn't realise I had and given me new concepts that help me understand the world and the environment around me... • Which means it's either; total 'coincidence' or I'm completely on the path I'm supposed to be on 🤷🏾‍♀️🧘🏾‍♀️ • I have come to learn and realise that nothing is coincidental. Which can only mean one thing. That these are signs that I'm completely on the right path and to keep going... • As I've said before, I don't claim to be an expert or say anyone should live how I do or even do as I do. I simply am sharing my journey, self reflections and personal ideas, in the hope that I inspire others to do the same.... What signs have showed up in your life to tell you to keep going? • • • • • #midweekmotivation #realisation #consciousness #trusttheprocess #personalgrowth #selfhelp #selflove #selfcare #selfprogression #mentalhealth #safespace #selfbelief #positivity #growth #focus #believeitachieveit #opportunist #bowngirlblogger #blackgirlblogger #believeinyourself #speakitintoexistence #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #positiveliving #selfreflection #dailycalm #lessonsoflife #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

My theme of this year when 2019 first arrived was 'Growth' and it still is. Which is hilarious... I'll tell you why... • This year has been such a rollercoaster so far, I have never been on such a ride! And because I'm being more mindful and positive; when approached with challenging situations, instead of thinking 'Why me?!' I have been saying 'What am I to learn from this?' and I tell you, this has happened a lot!!! Especially lately. Which is why I took some time out from posting. • On reflection, the other day I was wondering why this may be happening more than usual? Then a quick flash back took me to the beginning of this year. I announced to the universe that this years theme would be 'growth' even got the fella in on it too! And here I am wondering why this year I have learnt, developed, reflected, done things I feared, left my comfort zone, faced multiple challenges etc...and still continue learn. One lesson leads on to the next and none of it, I ever seen coming! • So the lesson for today. Be careful what you wish for! 🤣 But to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way. • The hubby said; "Next year, can the theme be 'FUN' please? "Yes babe, way ahead of you on that one!" • • • • • #growth #attitudegratitude #positivelives #positivementalattitude #selfreflection #becarefulwhatyouwishfor #empowerment #encouragement #positivevibes #goodvibesonly #lifelessons #loa #facethefear #comfortzonekiller #believeinyourself #trusttheprocess #speakitintoexistence #trustyourgut #positivemindset #dontquit #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #serenabelievedshecouldsoshed #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

"Tell me...when is the last time you have done that thing you love?" • Welcome to 'My space' My car is where I do a lot of self reflection, self education and where I get some 'me time' • So, tell me...when is the last time you did that thing you love? It can be something simple like, going for a walk, watching your favourite TV programme, reading, listening to music? I have found in my life, that when I get too caught up in life, they are the things that I tend to forget about; they take a back seat and it's only when we decide to take a minute do we realise how much we have not prioritised our own needs. That 'time out' to do the things you love, are so important... • So I challenge you today to look at your life and think about doing something for you, that you love doing, but maybe have forgot about it and post what it is and when you're going to do it...

When Soul Is Life... • I've been reading a lot more lately, which is great! Books have always been a part of my life, but lately, they've taken a back seat. Reading and self education is so important to growth and personal development and as 'growth' is my theme for the year, I've made extra effort to bring this vital activity back into my life. • I've been looking forward to reading this book so much by Kylie Riordan @mindfulheal called 'When Soul is Life' • It's already made me start challenging the way I approach people and situations. And to be completely honest with you, if you would have placed this book in my hand 2 years ago, I would not have read it... But now, I'm a different person and open to things that I come across... • This goes for most things, to be honest. Being open to opportunities is an exciting prospect to me. I'm more open to saying yes, more open to giving things a try...because ya know what?! I think it leads to a more enriched life. I can honestly say "Well, I gave it a go!" • Link in bio to my Amazon shop 👆🏽👆🏿👆🏻 • What things have you tried that you wouldn't have 2 years ago? • • • • • • * As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases 😊 #whensoulislife #keepyouroptionsopen #selflove #selfcare #typewritervoice #feedthesoul #enlightenment #mindsetmatters #powerofthought #innerguidance #innergrowth #powerofpositivity #achievegreatness #readerforlife #fortheloveofbooks #booksaremylife #mindsets #inspirationquote #positivehabits #selfdevelopmenttools #powerofthought #manifestgreatness #manifestyourlife #believeitachieveit #browngirlblogger #blackgirlblogger #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #serenabelievedshecouldsoshed #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

This weekend has been a weekend of relaxation and reflection. The hubby and I spoke of our dreams, hopes and desires. We put our phones down, I started to read a different book (I have about 3 on the go). This gave me time to think about what is important and regain some focus. • I've been moaning a lot lately of saying "I haven't got enough time!" Truth is...I have. I just need to prioritise what is important to spend my time on...and I think I've figured it out. • Are you focussing your time on less important things in your life?

I had a huge realisation last night, as I noticed I had been doing something very wrong! And to correct it, I'll have to put in a lot of hard work! My brain went into panic mode big time... • I took some deep breaths and started to think about the benefits. I began to focuss on the positive, rather than the negative. • My perspective changed! I found that this would be the making of me, rather than the breaking. Yes, I'd made a mistake, some may call it a fail; but I needed to fail in order to notice the huge potential and benefits going forward... I'm stubborn headed, no-one could have told me any different, I needed to learn the hard way... • An you know what! I'm quite excited about it.

She Believed She Could So She Did • I wrote an affirmation poem to remind me of my strengths, how far I've come and to go back to when I'm feeling overwhelmed. • I was inspired after going to and performing at The Beeston Word Poetry evening, earlier this year. • I look back on that evening with fondness and have been writing more and more poetry. My next biggest thing would be to video myself performing one of them. And because I fear it, it is definitely what I should do. • I'll be going back to perform at #Beestonword in July, so I challenge myself to do it before then. • Would anyone like to see me perform some of my poetry? Could do a live stream on Instagram. Would anyone want to see that though? • • • • #beestonword #poetry #poetsofinstagram #writingcommunity #facingthefear #challengeyourself #growthalways #mantra #affirmarions #affirmationpoetry #positivequotes #positivethinking #languageispowerful #empowerment #positivementalattitude #staymotivated #attitudeofgratitude #inspiration #selfreflection #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #theinspired #browngirlblog #sheblogs #opportunist #opportunities #bloggersofinstagram #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid

Have you ever entered a room full of people and got a bad feeling? Met someone who fascinated you and you just needed to know more about them? Was so charismatic that their energy continued long after they had left the room? They say that only 10% of what we communicate is what we say and the rest is combination of body language eye contact what you wear tone, pitch & speed of your voice But I think a key part of what encapsulates all of that is the vibe you give off. People feel it, sense it... It warns people or warms people, either attracts or deflects, pushes or pulls...but one thing is for sure...it is present and causes a reaction. Check out my latest blog "The Power of Positivity & Visualisation" "My journey towards positivity and self-belief started with a few really simple steps that I repeated and practised and I continue to do so to achieve my ultimate goal. Don’t get me wrong, there will be days where this will be challenging..."

Gif credit ©️: @xavieralopez • As you've probably guessed, I've been having a lil bit of a tough time, which is perfectly fitting with #mentalhealthawarenessweek I didn't plan this, honest! • So, I've been all about self care and self love, which is so important and easy to forget; time alone, time relaxing, time to reflect, kind self talk, self praise and self acceptance is needed. We are not machines; popping a pill for an illness is not enough to recover, having a shower to wake you up, is not enough, rest is required, we tire mentally, so the practice of mindfulness and meditation could come in handy.... • If you're exhausted physically, imagine what that does to you mentally and visa versa, it's all connected. • Wednesday I took a half day off work and had an early night, after missing about 4/5 nights good sleep. It was needed, necessary and paramount! • It may seem impossible to take time out for yourself... you may think "How and where the HELL am I going to fit that in?!" Call on friends, parents or paid carers to help with the kids, ask your partner to take over the parenting responsibilities, whilst you go for an evening walk, book a day off work, if you have children, still put them in child care and have a full YOU DAY! • Please take care of yourself this mental health week. Give yourself a hug. • • • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarenessweek #selflove #selfcare #selfhug #kindselftalk #selfacceptance #lovingyourself #youtime #metime #beinginnature #mindfulness #sheblogs #browngirlblogger #blackgirlmagic #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #blogger #Nottingham #dreamsarewhatlifeismadeof #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #challengenegativity #positivethinking #positivequotes #positivementalattitude #5daygoalgettingchallenge #theinspired #womensupportingwomen #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid

Some brutal honesty with this post...a different spin on #MondayMotivation • I dislike this picture of me. Why? Well, I could tear it to pieces, but I don't want to reinforce the negativity in my mind. • I am so confident in my abilities, my knowledge, my skills, my experiences; but when it comes to my body and appearance, it's like I am talking about a completely different entity. Of course I have some good days with this too & I don't always feel like this... • I am not saying this to jump on the #bodypositivity band wagon. I just wanted to share with you a side of me that is quite vulnerable and that is far from perfect and that I'm working on... • I need to be positive and believe in me and the whole of me and not just pick and choose, the parts I like. I am hoping that my whole journey will start reinforcing some positivity in how I think about my body, as well as my abilities to what I can achieve in the other areas of my life. I am also hoping that @bodyposipanda #BodyPositivityPower book will help. A possible upcoming topic for my new blog post next week... 🤔 what do you think? • What areas of your life do you need to be more positive about? • • • • • #mondaymotivation #brutalhonestly #bodypositivity #empowerment #honesty #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #positivementalattitude #positivequotes #positivethinking #selfbelief #believeitachieveit #hardworkpaysoff #selflove #selfcare #trusttheprocess #speakitintoexistence #thewholeself #inspiredaction #inspiration #lifelessons #mentalhealth #writersofinstagram #browngirlblogger #sheblogs #selfconfidence #togetherwerise #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

Empowerment; the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights. • I love this word! And I felt that this image just captured, not necessarily what empowerment is, but what it does for a person. It makes them grow, bloom, blossom, into their own person! It's a fantastic process to be a part of. • I was first introduced to this word as a Youth Worker when I was 22. • I simple visualisation of this in practice is; Its nice holding someone's hand and letting them follow your lead. But what benefits the person longer term is; when you walk side by side, let them figure it out themselves and encourage and support them to make their own decisions along the way. • What words have you come across that you love....? • • • • • #empowerment #togetherwerise #wordporn #growth #challenge #support #encouragement #positivity #positiveenergy #positivementalattitude #positivequotes #positivethinking #selfbelief #believeitachieveit #selfbeliefiskeytoyoursuccess #achievement #achievingisbelieving #opportunist #writersofinstagram #selfbelifquotes #speakitintoexistence #poemsofinstagram #trusttheprocess #journeytowardspositivityandselfbelief #TGIF #TFIF #buildingselfesteem #youhavecontrolofyourlife #serenabelievedshecouldsoshedid #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

Women supporting women Men Supporting Men Lets go back to basics And start all over again • I was thinking about this yesterday whilst cooking... don't get me wrong, I'm all for women supporting each other, as equality is still an issue, in so many areas. However, if we just all saw each other by each own merits regardless of sex, colour, religion, body shape, sexuality etc... wouldn't things be so much easier... • Ok, maybe I'm a fantasist, a dreamer, an idealist; but this has been on my mind a lot. You can probably see that by this weeks blog post too; which is of a similar theme. But things that matter, that are often true, ordinarily, make complete sense.
