Questions to ask yourself when you when you feel a failure.



If we’re willing to view our failure in a positive light and to analyse how we can use what we’ve learnt in the future, the things we go through will enable us to grow stronger and wiser.

If you feel you have failed at something why not take a few minutes to answer these questions which I hope will help you and if you do need help do send me a message.

  1. What have I learned?
  2. Am I grateful for this experience?
  3. How can I turn it into success?
  4. Where do I go from here?
  5. Who else has failed like this, and how can they help me?
  6. How can my experience help others?
  7. Did I actually fail, or just fall short of an unrealistically high goal?
  8. What did I handle well about this experience?’


It may not feel like you will smile again…..

Every one of us has bad days, and every one of us has good days. Both states pass and  both come again, in different ways. What makes the  diffrence in the way we react to our bad days is our attitude,

It may not feel like you will smile again, but never loose hope.

Life is a balance of light and dark, bad times and good times. Happiness comes not from being attached to the good days and dreading the bad days, but by accepting that both are a part of life. When you accept this, you are able to live from a more balanced perspective, with equanimity, enjoying the good times, learning from the hard times, and appreciating that both have an important role.

If you need help to regain your smile why not email me to buy a copy of my popular self help book – Crown of Smiles. £4.99 which has tips on how I too recovered from unhappiness, sadness, depression and low self esteem.

Stay strong, don’t give in or give up



Sitting here all alone!

Feeling down because of the pressures of life

Head bowed down feeling sad at the days wasted doing nothing and opportunities missed


Is life worth living you ask?

How much of this can I take?


You start to cry and just feel so alone!


In the midst of it all a friend phones, hears the sadness if you voice and says “ It’s ok my friend to break down and cry, remember you are not alone, we are in this together and everything will work out fine in the end,    stay strong and don’t give in or give up”

2016 Use laughter, humour and play to transform your personal and work life



Why play is important to us all (Lauren Laverne)

“We’re all convinced we’re too busy to do it, and that’s no accident. Our culture values busyness – it is how we measure goodness. Play is indispensable to human progress and good for individuals. A culture that encourages it will enjoy cumulative benefits. Denmark – officially the happiest country on earth – is an example. Flexible work and affordable childcare are the norm, which means more free time. In addition, there is greater gender equality and a work-to-live culture that includes the expectation that people should pursue private interests.

You matter so take care of you!

Their comes a time in our lives, when we just need to step back from running around, and take time to evaluate our lives and prioritise things so that we don’t end up fatigued, depressed and washed out.

Two weeks ago, I just felt so exhausted from running around, trying to do so many things that my body decided enough was enough, and I became unwell for 4 days. I was a bit annoyed at being unwell as I had appointments and work to complete, and being self employed I was worried that by cancelling the jobs I had this would lead to me not having the amount of money I had planned to get that week. Well the fact of the matter is their was nothing I could do about being unwell, so I had to cancel everything I had planned, and spent the time at home just relaxing and getting my children to help me do some of the usual household chores. One of my good friends even came around and mad me a smoothie, helped me to cook some soup and motivated me just by being their and showing that she cared.



I had to take time out to:-
•Make a list of people and experiences that I was grateful for
•Take stock of every thing I was doing and why I was doing them
•Make a decision to let go and to stop doing things that were draining me
•Make a list of what was important to me
•Prioritise to spend time doing the things that were most important to me
•Create a list of people who I know I can call on to empower and motivate me
•Set realistic goals and how I was going to achieve them
•Make a decision to take better care of myself and to value my time



Things you could try to stay motivated

  1. Try and stay positive. No matter what, motivation goes hand in hand with positivity. Even when things are looking down, keep your head up and push forward.
  2. Speak to a friend who you know is supportive about how you are feeling and get them to encourage and support you back to the positive and fabulous person you are.
  3. Read or listen to stories about people who have overcome adversity and the things they deed to lead a successful life. This will inspire, motivate, encourage, fuel you to do something positive to get you back on track.
  4. Make things fun. At the gym, bring your favourite music. At work, bring yourself small treats to enjoy after small accomplishments. At home dress up in some fun outfits and have a party just to celebrate being you
  5. Listen and sing to your favourite and most uplifting songs as this will help change your focus and energise you.
  6. Do some form of exercise – e.g walking, dancing, cycling going to the gym as this will also help you to Exercise seems to have an effect on certain chemicals in the brain, like dopamine and serotonin. Brain cells use these chemicals to communicate with each other, so they affect your mood and thinking.

Wishing you all the best – You matter, so take care of you and may the Smile be with you always!

Happy Relaxation Day

In a world of busyiness, we all need to try and take time out on a regular basis to just slow down… breath, and relax.
Relaxation Day is all about winding down and just taking it easy. If you’re lucky enough to have the day off work, enjoy a quiet morning watching TV from the sofa, and perhaps consider some light gardening in the afternoon – all in the spirit of relaxing!
