Share your smile – Join in my #ISmileBack campaign

Go out and share a smile #ISmileBack

In this world where there are a lot of people suffering, feeling lonely, living on the edge, frustrated and having no purpose, the least we can do is to share a smile – smiling is contagious and when you share it with someone it can change their mood. I love wearing my Tshirt walking down the road, and watch as people read it and most smile back

Smile even when someone does not smile back just because you don’t know what they are going through. This should not stop you from moving on and smiling to to the next person you see.

 

 

What you can do-

Design your own Tshirt or badge and walk around and smile at people and watch their reaction too as they read your Tshirt

Upload your photos showing us your smile on social media using #ISmileBack

 Smile even when someone does not smile back!

The other day,  I went to a very uplifting event in London, and everyone looked happy and smiling, except one lady who just looked miserable. I made eye contact with her a few times, and she just seemed to stare at me as if to say “ oh for goodness sake stop smiling”. This really did bother me. But then I realise that she may be going through stuff and was not in the mood to smile.

Think about it – Do you always smile back at people? If you don’t, then think about it. Chances are you’re thinking about something else, or are distracted or don’t even see them. Same with other people. Remember that most people are friendly by nature, but right at that moment when you smile at someone, you never know what’s really going on in their heads, so don’t think or worry about it.

Continue to smile, continue to say hello, and when someone does not respond in kind, go on and share the smile with someone else.

Day-18 (21) Develop a supportive commumnity #21daygoalchallenge

Most of us have a need to be part of a community that shares love, commitment, security and connections. We can all create our own “chosen family”, by consciously choosing whom to become more intimate with and investing our time and energy into these relationships. It’s the people in our lives who make good times better and difficult ones easier.

Take some time out to look at your community which is made of acquaintances, friend and families -see if they are made any of these type of people who are going to help you achieve your goals. Some people may have more than one of the qualities below. The key is to have a community of people who is going to encourage and support you.

Proactive – This person is doing things to get themselves on a path of personal development and is proactive in changing their life for the better.

Appreciative – This person consistently appreciates and values your relationship as well as your gifts, talents and strengths.

Communicative – This person is committed to respectful and non-defensive communication, constructive and honest (always with love), the kind of communication that brings a relationship closer together instead of further part.

Attentive – This person pays attention to what you say, listening without judgement, and caring about what you need to feel safe.

Honest – This person is committed to integrity and telling the truth.

Accountable – this person takes full responsibility for their part in the relationship and is always willing to work to look at and deal with how they need to grow.

Day-11 (21)Mange your time #21daygoalchallenge

Why you need to mange your times if you want to achieve your goals

Time management is important for your personal life, career  and business success. It teaches you how to manage your time effectively and make the most of it. so that you can achieve your goals. If you don’t manage your time, you will find yourself being stressed as you rush to completed tasks at the last minute and this will also have an effect on all areas of your life.

 

Do you really have to do that activity?

Life today presents so many distractions, and therefore, it is very easy to lose time on unimportant activities. Ask yourself, is watching this or that TV program, reading this or that gossip or participating in a certain activity is going to add anything to your life. Is the time spent on a particular activity well spent, or is just a waste of time and energy?

 

Before you do something, give yourself time to think about it. Yesterday, my plan was to stay home, relax, de –clutter my room and then cook a healthy Sunday dinner for my boys and I.  At about 11am, I found out their was an event  which I wanted to attend. As I was getting ready to go, suddenly, I had to think why I wanted to go to the event – after a few minutes I realised that if I went to the event it meant that I won’t be able to spend my precious time with my boys, and I would have had to pay out at least £30  which I had not budgeted for and this will then have an effect on the things I had budgeted for. So in the end I chose not to go to the event.

 

 

Have a to do list

Having a to-do list puts some structure around your tasks and acts as a driver to get things done. Make sure your to do lists, covers also areas  of your life so that you can have balance.  Always plan your time well and don’t waste it on useless matters. Be careful not to procrastinate, and do everything in the best way you can, with focus and attention, as this will help you achieve your gools.

  • Write a to-do list at the start of each week – and update it every day so you’re always on top of the tasks that are needed.
  • Use a notebook, your smart phone or a cloud-based app  so you always have a list of what needs doing, wherever you are.
  • Tick off or scribble through the tasks you’ve completed – it makes it easier to see what’s left to complete and you get the satisfaction of seeing how much you’ve achieved this week (giving you a personal sense of achievement)

Prioritise your time

Please let me know how you are getting on and if you need some free help and support.

Don’t write yourself off – everyone’s timing is different

Sometimes in life it can be very discourgaging when you look at friends who you went to school with achieving so much in their lives and seem to beliving thier dream out , whilst you just feel all you do is struggle to make ends meet.

Now in my fabulous fifties, I wish I knew a lot of the stuff  I know now about life and perhaps things would have turned out differently,  but I guess this is just how my life is mean to be. Age is simply just a number, when it comes to your own personal success age doesn’t matter. When you go after what you are passionate about, what fulfils your life success doesn’t come straight away it takes a lot of action and patients to get there.

Over the last few years, I have achived so much as I am doing what I love and inspiring and encouraging others to maximise their potential and be the best versions of themselves.  I feel I have such a wealth of knowledge through my life exeperinces and reading about other people’s jouneryand nothing excites me more than when i mentor and help others find hope and passion for life.

I came across this video which is  less than 5 minutes long, and though to share it with you.  I hope it will encourage you to look up and continue to do what you need to, so that you can achieve your goals

Welcome to  Day  29 Run, leap and celebrate for you are alive.

WooHoo, I am celebrating the fact that we made it to the last day of February. Thanks so much for taking time to read my blog which I hope you have found useful!

 

 

Celebrate your life!

When we sit back and look back at our lives, we should really celebrate how far we’ve come!  13 years ago when I became a single parent, I  had such challenges trying to sort my life out, work, and look after my boys.  There have been times when I felt like giving up, times when it was so cold in the house as I could not afford to put the heaters on, times when my situation was so bad, that I suffered in silence as I was too embarrassed to ask for help and did not want to be a burden to anyone!

Yet today, I have reasons to smile at how far I have come, and celebrate all the wonderful people who have been their for us.  I celebrate at being able to share my experiences with so many people and help give them reasons to smile too!

So go ahead and celebrate your life!

Their are so many negative people who are out their to put us down, but we have to celebrate our achievements, successes as well as make time to enjoy this precious gift of life!

How to look in the mirror and smile back

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog and that you are keeping up with the daily tasks! It would be great if you could write any ideas or comments you have.

Their was a time I could not look in the mirror and smile!                                                                                            

I remember in 2003 after I  got my divorce, one of the things I did was to take all the mirrors down, and throw them away and kept just one small one, as I could not stand the sight of myself.   I felt like a loser. I started to hear the words  of my ex ” You are no good”! ” No one will want you”  ” I have had women better than you”. It was really painful at times, as these words started to drag me down,  I started to have nightmares and even though I was waking up and doing things, I was running my life on auto pilot as I had my two toddlers and need to look after them.

As I started getting help and support, I slowly began to reprogram my mind.  I remember my pastor in my church  saying to me – remember your ex is just one person who thinks that way, God loves you and he created you to be a somebody, unique and special.

One day I remember driving around and saw a very large mirror displayed for sale. I actually got out of my car and went to buy the mirror. I remember the excitement as I drove home that day. As soon as I got home, I put the mirror right outside my bedroom door, so that every morning when I woke up I would look at it, smile and say ” I am unique, special and happy to be me”!!
