Redundancy Inspiration – Life is full of possibilities

Hi everyone

Life is full of possibilities, so it’s up to you to make the impossible possible.

Explore your options, learn and grow. Develop new skills and acquire new experiences to move forward with your life.

Take baby steps until you have achieved your goals.

To obtain your goals, take action to complete each step.

Reward yourself for every achievement and learn from everything that didn’t go so well.

Celebrate each possibility that you made possible and be content in knowing that you took control of your life and made it happen.

Stay positive and keep smiling.

Keep moving forward

Keep moving forward and don’t look back.
The past is the past and that is that.

Keep moving forward and pursuing your dreams.
To make them come true, use all means.

Do whatever it takes to make them come true.
It’s your life, do what you want to do.

Celebrate your successes, however small.
When opportunity knocks, open the door.

Keep staying focused and don’t hold back.
The past is the past and that is that.

When you make a mistake, it doesn’t matter.
It’s not a life, it’s not a disaster.

Learn from mistakes and don’t hold back.
Be unstoppable, make that a fact.

Keep moving forward and never look back.
The past is the past and that is that.

Stay positive

How To Overcome Feelings Of Depression – You Are The World’s Greatest

Hi everyone

Whilst being redundant, depression can rear it’s ugly head.

One of the ways of overcoming feelings of depression, is to lift your mood by changing your state of being. You can do this through:

  • Movement – Such as dancing or playing sport
  • Looking – Watching an action movie
  • Listening – To music
  • Touching – Stroking a pet

All of these should distract your mind and take your focus off your unwanted thoughts.

Depression is a state of mind that manifests itself into your state of being. Your being responds by harvesting unhappy emotions, feelings and thoughts. You need to pinpoint the cause of your depression and literally cut back on it or cut it out completely from your life. Metaphorically speaking – It is like mould that attacks fruit, once it gets hold, it will continue to spread.  You can either cut it out and eat the rest, which may still be infected, or you can throw it away for good and never go near it again. Obviously you would never physically cut yourself, as that is wrong and not what I am saying.

Along with changing your state of being, you need to increase your self-confidence and self-esteem. You need to counteract all of the negative comments from others and from yourself, by speaking only positive words to yourself, over and over again. You must ban yourself from using any negative words.

You need to view obstacles as challenges and be blessed for what you have.

Always tell yourself – You are the world’s greatest.

Stay positive

I Have Been Chosen To Meet Her Majesty The Queen

Hi everyone

I am very happy and excited to have been chosen to meet Her Majesty the Queen, at St James’s Palace, on Monday 15th of July.

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, on Facebook or on my other blog, you may already know this and a few of you I have mentioned it to in my comments. For the rest of my lovely blog followers, the last update I gave you, was that I had been invited to St James’s Palace in the presence of HM the Queen. I have since had a letter to say I have been chosen to meet HM the Queen.




I have been sent a map of the inside of the Palace and have been told I am group 10, in the Queen Anne Room, to meet the Queen.


There is a red dotted line to indicate which route HM the Queen will take.

There are instructions of what I should say and do when I meet HM the Queen.

I am going there, to celebrate CSV (Community Service Volunteers) 50th anniversary. I do voluntary work as a Health Buddy for CSV and got nominated by my Manager to go.

If someone had told me a few years ago, that in the future I would be meeting HM the Queen at St James’s Palace, I would have laughed and said they had a vivid imagination, or yes, in my dreams. But I did something very important in my life, I changed my attitude and my belief in myself.

When I was made redundant for the second time in my life, in 2009, this was the starting point of that change. I knew from then on, that I was born 100% to write and to help others who have been made redundant to get back into work. It was the start of my creative journey. However, needing money and taking on a succession of temporary jobs, that I wasn’t happy in, took it’s toll, and although I still had these goals in mind, I didn’t do much about them at that time.

By the end of 2009, I got a job as an Assistant Manager of a shop and a couple of months later I was promoted to Shop Manager. The drawback was, most weeks I would be working 60 hours a week instead of my contracted 40.

In October 2010, I got headhunted to work as a Sales Person for more money doing less hours and so I took it. After almost a year of working there, I decided to take a year out from work, to develop myself, my skills, my knowledge and expertise to grow as a person and to finally fulfil my destiny of writing and helping others to get back into work. During that time, I gained all of those and so much more.

Although I am working again in a retail sales job during the day, I have chosen to be in a job as a Sales Person not as a Manager, so my hours are stable and kept to a minimum. The pay is not great but I can focus on building two businesses around my two goals during the evenings and my time off. I now know what action to take to make progress with those two goals. I still have time to do courses and to develop myself as a person. I am continuing on the path to fulfil my dreams and you can do it too. I am living proof that dreams can come true. Never, ever, give up on your own dreams. Believe they are achievable and that anything is possible.

Be blessed with what you have,
fight for what you want,
believe in yourself,
helps others along the way,
take action,
change when you are able to
and never look back.

Keep looking forward because your future is in your hands.
Treat yourself kindly,
look after those who are important in your life,
allow yourself ups and downs,
you are only human.
Above all, love yourself, live life to the max and do what makes you happy over and over again.

Until next time, keep writing and keep smiling.
