I joined a few months back the 5am club , well 5.30 if we are being honest, and I felt amazing for it . Now ive never been a morning person , and I suppose im still not really .
I get up at 5.30am , I have time to myself reading and drinking tea in the quiet, I have time to tidy up and catch up on all my social media messages and comments, and get posts ready to go . 7am , it's time to get my baby up and ready for school and I have already achieved so much and have the time to be patient with him , make his breakfast and chat about all the random things he wants to chat about .Read more

A while a go now I read the most amazing book Listen to your heart By Isler Philippe- Which was about using Mindfulness to make the choices that are right for you.
And it was whilst reading this I realised I didn’t breathe properly?!
Now who would have knew there was a way to breathe?

We are not willing to wait for anything anymore and rightly so, I can order clothes in the middle of the night and have them here the next day, I don’t even have to get dressed or brush my hair, we can book a holiday at 2am on a Friday night and be in the sunshine by the next day (another good reason to leave your card at home on a night out) we literally don’t have to wait for anything anymore.Read more
Have you ever noticed that things can sometImes feel like they snowball , you get up late for work and you whole day is just one bad thing after another .

At one point I spiral into this black hole, it could keep me stuck for weeks or months, burying myself deeper and deeper and tainting my whole outlook on life .

I had no motivation and felt constant defeat, I was good enough for nothing.Read more
Now I’m not saying that from this sentence forward you will dance around with flowers in your hair never fearful again, but what I hope Is it opens your mind to the possibility that sometimes our fears are unfounded and just in our imagination.Read more

How do you think we will face life’s hardships and move toward our goals when our energy levels and view of ourselves Is low ?Read more
I was always chasing something to make me happy, that one thing that was going make me relax and just go yeah this is what I’ve been after.
But it never seemed to come … because as soon as I got to that place, as soon as I achieved that thing I thought would make me happy it was like a massive anti-climax. The journey getting to that point had motivated me, inspired me, had its ups and downs but created a sense of purpose and happiness, but the actual end result felt more like a relief and not the elation and end point I was hoping for.Read more
