So today I learned a valuable lesson in practicing what I post. On my website (which is primarily themed around self-help and mindfulness) I write frequently about self care and taking care of yourself.However I may have fallen foul of this very same advice - well in the physical sense anyway. I've been wrestled with a cough since mid November, pushed it aside and ignored it as best I could during the festive month of December all the while drinking honey tea during the day, hot toddy before

So anyone that knows me knows that I don't believe in coincidences. I believe that everything happens for a reason and the universe is constantly finding ways to send messages to us. I also believe that often the situations we experience are life lessons, that we need to have in order to find our way, whether we think of if at the time or not. So today while I was waiting to collect the children from school I decided to check through my emails from my personal account. I came across one from

I first read this parable over a year ago and shared it with my children, and I came across it again most recently and thought I would share it here on this forum. Please be warned it's not for everyone and it is quite long, but I think most will find it a beautiful read. Once upon no time, there was a little Soul who said to God, "I know who I am."And God said, "That's wonderful! Who are you?"And the Little Soul shouted, "I'm the Light!"God smiled a big smile. "That's right!" God exclaimed. "Y

Indulge me a little in some Friday motivation and imagine how you climb a mountain. Do you start at the top of the mountain, then cling on for dear life and pray you don't fall off it? Or do you start at the bottom of the mountain, gradually making your way to the top?We all know the answer really, nobody starts at the top of the mountain!!! You start at the bottom (at 0%) then work your way up (to 100%).And this is true of so many other processes in our lives…Running a marathon - you st

Five months ago I walked blindly onto this platform and created a profile with a vision to setting up a blogging website and hoping to find someone or something which could teach me how to do just that. Before I joined this community, I am no preconceived ideas about blogging, no particular desire to earn income from my blog idea and no bad experiences of being scammed online. Then I started the training that is laid out so well here – and boy did my view change, I began to realise that

The twelfth and final day of Christmas, January 6th, is known in Ireland as Nollaig na mBan translating to Women's Christmas. On this day, the last day of Christmas, women would, finally, get a much-needed rest after catering to everyone during the festive season. It is said that even God rested on the seventh day, but Irish women didn't stop until the twelfth 😊 This tradition is borne from Celtic times when an obligatory feast allowed women to have a massive party (without men) to ce

I've decided to dedicate January to decluttering my home and have started with the dreaded wardrobe...won't be a quick job but has to be done! A few years ago I read and embraced the Marie Kondo art of tidying and decluttering, I feel another burst of this is long over due. It's not for everyone I know and I failed in my last mission with the very last section - paperwork, photos and momentos. Apparently this is the hardest one to tackle. But I will try it again and see how far I get. Declutt

1) Wake up feeling good - do not wait for something to happen in your life to make you feel good, no external circumstance should determine how you feel.2) Engage in positive self talk - be careful how you express your thoughts, have a list of 2 or 3 positive affirmations that you will remember and recite this everyday to yourself, anytime, anywhere. 3) Commit to doing 1 thing every day for yourself - self care is very important and can make all the difference in keeping your energy levels up.4

So just shy of joining Wealthy Affiliate 21 weeks ago I have finally finished the OEC training all 5 levels and what a roller coaster ride that has been!!I appeared to raced through the first 3 Levels and stumbled and staggered my way through Level 4 - taken a record 6 weeks to finish! When I finally started Level 5 I realised that I had actually implemented and learnt a lot of it along the way mostly in part to my curiosity and also from reading the many daily blogs that seemed to cover stuff
