Blog post re-share: To Hell With them — The Written Addiction

A brilliant inspiring post. Do take a read.

Moving away from the old programs, I agree, there are times when we look around, we look at ourselves, we look at our attempts to change, and then we shake our head because we think, “Why bother? It’s not working anyway.”Then we sabotage ourselves without even noticing. We create our own self-fulfilled prophecy. We fail […]

Blog post re-share: Break Free From The Stimulation Nation — MakeItUltra™ Psychology

I have talked about in the past how I don’t use apps in my phone’s for anything, other than games, which I play maybe an hour, but not every night. As for emails and blogging, which is my main use, I log into them using my browser. I log in this in way because I am choosing when to check, but also I am on only a certain amount of internet each month. But even if I was to be lucky and have a contract with unlimited internet, I would still do it this way, just like when one time I had home internet, I will check when I am ready and not be bombarded with notifications alerting me to every alert I receive. I like my quiet time, but I know people, or have seen how people cannot resist after every notification to look.

This blog post re-share asks when was the last time you sat alone in the quiet without anything, or anyone to distract you, including not holding your mobile phone and tips how to reduce stimulation and enjoy silence.

Blog post re-share: From In The Classroom: Written for The Bullied Kid

As someone who has experienced the effects of bullying and coming across this post, I share in case there is a reader who is experiencing bullying right now. I hope you find these words comforting. I wish I had read something like this when I was younger.

The Written Addiction

I know right now that everything seems crucial.
Your friends, popularity, the kids in class, the things you do, the music you like, the jokes you tell, even the clothes you wear are things that revolve around a crowd.
Not everyone is the same, which is a good thing. But even when we are different, truth is we all just want to get along.

Blog post re-share: Morning has broken — Peacock Poetry

A great post. Do take a read and get inspired.

Every morning is really a fresh, new beginning to live life according to your values. In the last couple of months I have developed a ritual of doing a short meditation before getting out of bed followed by setting myself an intention for the day ahead. This habit is really helping me to feel grateful […]

Blog post re-share: You Are Amazing

It’s so easy to overlook yourself and this post serves as a good reminder for us. 🙂


I’m truly enjoying the November Soul Reset.

Day Three is talking about gratitude, but not just the proverbial list. It asked me to thank myself.

To say ‘thank you’ to me for being me.

Consider the last time you felt thankful for yourself. Really genuinely. Not because someone told you to. But because it just dawned on you. It just dawned on you that you are pretty amazing. ~SC Lourie

This is rather profound. When I think back of all the things I’ve been through, I tend to thank God, and that someone who stood by me during the storm. I cannot recall if I’ve ever said, “Thank you Barb.” 

I encourage you to take a quiet moment with you. Sit with a warm cuppa, and thank you for being there for you. When you think of who you love most in this world let it be you. You…

Blog post re-share: Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud — Emerging From The Dark Night

I came across this post from, “Emerging from the dark night” and I loved the inspirational read. The name, Maya Angelou wasn’t familiar to me, so after reading this post below, I googled her name. As soon as I seen photos of this lady, her face seemed familiar. I would have seen her on the TV I think, in my childhood and I remember liking this lady.

After reading the words from the post below, I certainly would like to read more of her work.

I just came across this beautiful article on an idea from Maya Angelou. Well worth a look.
