“If you propose to speak ask yourself, is it necessary, is it kind?”
Someone close to me encountered an extremely hateful and negative person and it just reminded me to self reflect..
Am I speaking out of love, what message am I portraying?
It’s inevitable to come across an “angry person” however if we remind ourselves that their anger is a direct reflection of themselves in that moment we realise that we don’t need to react or entertain their emotions, that is their inner peace not ours.
I think it’s important to always remain calm in a heated situation, people that raise their voice in anger are looking for a reaction, they want to argue with you and they want to dumb you down to their level..
don’t give in to them, remember who you are, take a breath and stay in your light ❤️🌹
Well, I’m back from my two week adventure in Spain with my mamma.
I can honestly say this has been the best two weeks of my life.. getting to spend quality time searching for shells on the beach to booking a gorgeous hotel and travelling to Benidorm for the night, wow Words can’t explain what a beautiful time it was.
It’s the little moments that mean the most in life, I find that we can get so caught up and busy in the day to day that before we know it time has flown by and we wish we had those moments to relive.. I can still see my beautiful mother now walking to put her toes in the water, looking back and smiling at me and these are moments I will cherish for as long as I live.
Now that I’m back in England, it’s time to focus on my goals. Time to push harder than ever before and to keep moving forward. Life is so beautiful, I am blessed ❤️
Do NOT look back unless it is to motivate you to move forward.. remember where you came from but keep moving forward.
Ive Said goodbye to the past to welcome my future with open arms.
I believe that life will throw us challenges in order to show us the strength we have to overcome. Though, we may not understand WHY things happened the way they did trust in yourself and have faith in a better tomorrow.
We can’t change the darkness of our past but if we live in the present and make every single second count NOW we open the doors of opportunity to the bright future ahead.
Make today count, make today beautiful & believe in YOU.
When you wake up every morning, what drives you? What is your purpose?
If you want to live a life enriched with love and happiness it begins with you, so find your purpose and find your WHY.
It’s important to take steps daily to move forward, it’s not always going to be an easy road but if you know your purpose, And what drives and inspires you then you WILL improve your life.
Your why will pull you up when you’ve been knocked down and it will keep you fighting when you’re tired. I heard something this morning from one of my favourite speakers saying “don’t look back you’re not going that way, and when you get knocked down.. get back up”
If we know our purpose it will be the reason you keep on fighting for your dreams.. when it hurts, keep going.. for if we push through those tough times they will only make us STRONGER. Stay focused and do NOT loose sight of that.
Be the very best. Sacrifice, get up early & fight back.. you are FAR from ordinary.
As I was waiting for my bus to come a very sweet & kind elderly lady stood next to me and we began chatting.
She had missed her bus by 5 minutes so rather than wait another hour she decided to catch the one I was on.. I could tell she just wanted a friend to speak too so I stood and listened to her story.
I learned that 2 years ago, she had a severe stroke which had clearly effected her left side, she usually has someone with her to accompany her on her journeys But she didn’t have anyone today. I could tell she was a little shaken up by the sweat on her forehead and by the way she spoke.. so I asked her if she felt OK?
I learned that as she was trying to get to her tram in time so she could catch the earlier bus she was walking down the street & someone bumped into her quite abruptly..because of this, she needed to sit down and compose herself as she was extremely distraught by this person. This person was the the reason she missed her normal bus home which left her confused and uncomfortable. The sad part is that this person didn’t even apologise to her or take the time to make sure that she was OK before he ran off..
I stood and listened to this woman for about 20 minutes and then accompanied her onto the bus offering to help her carry her shopping then ensured she would be OK before I hugged her and we parted ways..
Moral of the story here is this; don’t be so consumed by your busy life that you don’t respect and care for those around you!!! It costs NOTHING to be kind & a simple two minutes taken out of your day to help someone can be the difference between them making it home safely versus them lost and confused about where to go..
We NEED to respect and be kind to all of those around us, ESPECIALLY our elders.. they need our love more than we realise.

I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..
Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.
There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?
Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.
Today I am headed to finalize plans for something i’m honored and excited to be a part of, in which I will post further details closer to date.
I have been really focusing on which path I want to go down and what steps I need to take to ensure I reach my goals, I think its important to take steps forward in bettering yourself.. some of the things I like to do daily is reflect and keep my goals in check.
- Identify qualities you admire about yourself, self affirmation is key. Find qualities that you admire in others also and figure out what is is that you want to learn by making plans and doing what you need to do to learn and grow in that particular field.
- Decide what you want to change whether circumstantial or within yourself.
- Identify your flaws. Think about the things that you don’t like about yourself and do what you can daily to work on these things. Realize we all have flaws, and that’s OK, no person in this world is perfect but If its something that you can change take steps daily/weekly/monthly to grow and become your best possible self.
- Get input – Network, get tips and advice from friends, family and influential people that you look up too. Outside perspective is important, its good to get advice from others.
- Start small, work up – Baby steps, write down your goals and what steps you need to take to achieve them.
- Decide on a timeline – Set dates that you want to achieve your goals by so you can keep yourself motivated and focused to achieve them.
- Follow through- Finally, don’t be distracted by external sources.. its normal to get sidetracked but remember WHY its important for you to achieve your goals and re focus – Don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way of growing and being amazing! We are all meant to shine 🙂
