Disneyland Paris Here I Come!

Hi everyone

image

I am off to London tomorrow with my cousin, and staying overnight. Then we are off to Disneyland Paris for 3 days, from the 1st-3rd of October. Staying overnight in London again on the 3rd. We have got a ton of excitement coming our way, and a lot of energy driven things to do. I am extremely excited. It’s the first holiday I have had in 3 years that won’t involve any work.

Therefore, my aim is to be completely work free and I won’t be able to answer your comments or check in with you, until after my holiday.

Bon voyage for now. For the continued journey of your life. I will see you when I get back.

Write, write, and write some more.

Sandra

You Have a Way About You – Your Own Quirky Way!

image

You have a way about you, that is unique to you, and your way of being. It’s your own quirky way, no one else’s.

Don’t worry about conforming and fitting in, be concerned with your own inner being and who you are.

If this is new territory to you, to stand proudly of yourself; it may be difficult at first because you are asserting your right to be an individual and to be treated as such.

To remain strong when sometimes family, friends and even love ones are pulling you in their direction, takes guts, willpower and determination. This is especially true if you have recently experienced a loss, such as your job.

However, when you have lost something, is the best time to find you. To find your inner being, the roots of your tree, and embed them in the earth. You; your thoughts, your actions, can be controlled by you. In a time when everything else may feel out of control, this can be extremely good for you.

When you assert yourself and others aren’t used to it and don’t like it; if they love you for who you are, they will still love you, care about you, talk to you and be friends with you. They will either get used to the new you and accept it, or they have the right to go their own way. If they go their own way, remember, you have a way with you, that is called your way for a reason. You are your own person. It’s better to be you than live as others would have you live and never be truly happy.

Whatever your background, culture, race, colour, religion, sexual orientation or other, you need to be true to you.

I communicate with people from around the globe. I see the difference between people who are blending in with their society’s expectations, their familiy’s traditions and cultural expectations, when it’s not what they truly want for themselves. They sacrifice their own needs for others; even to the point where they can’t be themselves or with the ones they love, forever. So they settle for what they can get or what they get given. They think they have no choice, but there is always a choice. Compare that to those seemingly in a minority, who come out as themselves; go their own way, but feel an inner contentment and peace, after weathering the storm. They choose to start their own life, how they choose to be, and feel alive and sometimes reborn because of it.

I love my parents dearly but I am extremely different to them. For years I wanted their appproval of what I did, of what I wanted, and to be accepted for being me. I break family traditions, conventions and some expectations. It is hard, but the more I am strong and go my own way, the more they seem to understand the real me and accept it. Whether they do or they don’t, I have a quiky way about me, that’s my own. I am my authentic self, and I like me just the way I am.

That’s why you were born as you. You were given your own brain, to think, your own body to look after, your own eyes to view the world; your own ears to listen and your own voice to speak. The way you sense the world around you, will never be identical to another. You have a way about you. Don’t turn the other way, away from yourself, your needs, wants and desires, go and get them.

Move forward bravely – With one foot in front of the other

image

We never know what may happen to us, now, or in the future.  That’s the beauty and worry of the game of life.

Sometimes we are presented with opportunities, choices and risks, that may be overwhelming. It’s hard to know what to do if you come to a crossroads in your life.

Sometimes you have to follow your gut instincts and move forward bravely, with one foot in front of the other, cautiously, one step at a time. At other times, you will need to cease the moment and run with it at full pelt. What else can you do? You can keep doing the same thing, become stagnant, and get lost as life passes you by, or you can take the bull by horns, be driven, embrace the here and now, and go with it. Who knows what wonders it may lead to?

Don’t let life cycle by – Take Action Now to Fufil Your Dreams

Don’t let life cycle by, take action now, to fufil your dreams.

Each and every second of life that passes us by, is a second gone forever.

Ask yourself this question. If you only had 24 hours left to live, how would you spend that time and who with?

Can you honestly say that you have lived your life, in a way which is authentic to you?

Can you honestly say that you have achieved everything in your life, that you have ever wanted to achieve?

Have you got:

● The right job for you?
● The right lifestyle for you?
● The right environment for you?
● The right life partner for you?
● The right you, for you?

Don’t let life cycle by. A cycle is a cycle for a reason. It’s round and continuous. But if you get on the wrong cycle path, you can stop yourself from achieving everything you have ever wanted in life.

Sometimes taking detours, or following different paths and breaking cycles, is actually what you need to succeed in every aspect of your life. Only then, can you make informed decisions as to what’s right and feels geat for you.

I took these photos on Thursday 11th of September, as The Tour of Britain cycled past the building where I work in my day job.

Redundancy

Lead the quirky life that only you were born to lead!

DSC_0337 DSC_0340 DSC_0354 1979618_451634051635641_1464625977_n 10258216_470038096461903_1897375291880183246_n 1509246_461657210633325_1313909136684626680_n

You are very special in your own right.

You do not need to justify the reason for being you to anyone but yourself.

You were born with your own unique and precious gifts.

Don’t listen to other people about how you should lead your life, just listen to your own heart and mind, and go with what you want to do and what feels right for you. I had a life changing moment when I took control of my life, and decided to do just that. Now I embrace every quirky feeling and feature about me, and I wouldn’t change me for the world.

I used to suffer with depression. I didn’t like my life, my circumstances or myself. There have been two major significant breakthroughs in my life. The first was when I was made redundant for the second time in my life, in 2009. This was when I first discovered my ultimate purpose in life. To write, and to help others, particularly people who have been made redundant, to get back into work. It was then that I decided I would become a self-employed writer and businesswoman. Despite the fact, that at the time, my own father didn’t believe I could do it. You can read more about this in my new Break through the barriers of redundancy book; that will be available to buy on Amazon.

My second major significant breakthrough, was in 2012, when I took a year out of work, took control over my life, starting making a lot of my own decisions, and did a ton of courses of my choosing.

In that year, I got my PTTLS level 4 teacher/trainer qualification. That I now use to teach Blogging as an aid to recovery – How to start a WordPress.com blog, for the Recovery Learning Community. That is part of the NHS. I also got an Information, Advice and Guidance Diploma Level 4. I did 5 Adobe courses and attended my first business seminars in London. All of these together, were life changing, because I felt empowered to be happy being me and to pursue my own goals, ambitions and dreams. To believe in myself and know that whatever I set my mind to, I can accomplish. I made a lot of changes to myself, that I needed to make me happy. I realised how awesome it was to have an intelligent, quirky, creative mind. I became happy to be in my own company for the first time in my life, and I realised that my life would never be boring because I had me. I learned to love myself, who I am, and what I was born to be. No longer worrying about what others think, and wrapping myself in my quirky bubble for eternity.

My one piece of advice for you, if you are not already doing so; is to embrace your quirky, and to lead the quirky life that only you were born to lead. That’s what I do now and I am the happiest I have ever been.

My motto ’embrace your quirky’ is a system and philosophy, of a different way of life to the norm. That allows you to be your authentic self, and achieve greatness in your life, so you can become truly unstoppable. You can expect more posts about this, and all things quirky from me, in the future.

Until next time
Embrace your quirky, stay strong, and keep believing in you.
