B is for Belief

Last week I started my new A-Z of inspirational blogging, and I talked about having aspirations. If you haven’t read it, you can read it here. If you did, did you write down your aspirational list? Have you been visualising reaching these aspirations?

Some people can find this hard; a challenge to actually visualise something that hasn’t actually happened yet. One of the biggest barriers is self-belief! It’s believing that YOU can actually do it. You may say it aloud, you may even convince yourself, but deep down, somewhere in your subconscious you have a niggling feeling that is stopping you.

So this week is about belief and learning to concentrate on you and believing in yourself.

I’ve been wanting to meditate for years, after downloading a Free app on my phone called Headspace, I became more intrigued and attended a meditation session last week. And something the teacher said was quite poignant to many people’s reality: It’s our reaction to other people that causes upset feelings within us. It’s how we deal with these feelings. It’s how we push these thoughts out into the open and how we deal with them internally.

Which got me thinking about self-belief. There are so many people out there who won’t take a risk, won’t move forward with their lives because they don’t believe in themselves. They don’t believe they are worthy of doing anything more than what they are doing. Don’t believe they are capable. And they listen to other people who may spread negativity around them.

So this week, I want everyone who is reading this blog to use affirmations. Affirmations help in clearing the mind and help to understand that you totally deserve the best life ever! It’s the belief in yourself that will help you move forward.

Every morning when you awake, before you get out of bed, say, ‘Today is a wonderful day, I believe in myself and wonderful things are happening!’

Once you are out of bed, look in the mirror and say, ‘I believe in me’ five times!

Stop in the middle of the day and tell yourself, ‘I can do this, I am an amazing person and I totally believe in myself.’ If you can do this a few times a day, awesome!

When lying in bed, before you go to sleep, say, ‘I believe in me. I’m proud of myself. Thank you for a wonderful day. Tomorrow will bring more good things. I believe. I believe. I believe.’

Remember, The Law of Attraction tells us to believe we’re already there, you can do this, but you need to believe in yourself! Believe you’re already there. Believe. Believe. Believe!

Good luck believing and have an awesome week!

Sending you lots of love and happiness

A is for Aspiration!

Well, hi guys, I’ve left this blog untouched since the beginning of January!

That’s because I’ve been working full out on my wedding business www.calmweddings.com (getting married or know anyone getting married, please give it a visit – plus get your FREE wedding tips ebook!)

Anyway, this blog post isn’t about promoting my wedding business, but the idea for the series of these blog posts has come from Calm Weddings. You see, today we started our A to Z of wedding tips/ideas blog posts, and I thought, why not do it on inspiring and motivating blog posts!

So every Monday, I’m hoping to post something that will hopefully inspire you for the coming week!

So today, A is for Aspiration …successful-mountain-top

Here’s a quote from Jason Calacanis (an American Internet entrepreneur and blogger).

‘You have to have a big vision and take very small steps to get there. You have to be humble as you execute but be visionary and gigantic in terms of your aspiration. In the Internet industry, it’s not about grand innovation, it’s about a lot of little innovations: every day, every week, every month, making something a little bit better.’

I absolutely love this quote, and this doesn’t just come down to the internet, this comes down to following your dreams and making it happen. If anyone has read my inspirational book or follows me on twitter, you will know how I truly believe, ‘little steps count’. It’s always knowing that you have a goal in mind, and it’s about striving to achieve this goal, facing challenges, stepping over these challenges and knowing in your heart where it is you want to be.

When you hear the saying, ‘overnight success,’ I’m not sure there are many overnight successes out there – if any! Most successes have come through determination and belief that they can make it work. Most ‘overnight successes’ have taken many years to achieve their dream.

It’s about having that apsiration and never giving up on your dreams. Having aspirations gives you a focus, gives you something to work towards, it gives a meaning to life!

So today, have a think about your aspirations. Make them clear by writing them down.

Keep this list with you and whenever you feel a challenge is too big, visualise yourself already being there. The Law of Attraction tells us to believe we’re already there, you can do this, but you need to aspire to do or be something before you can believe you’re already there.

Good luck with your aspirational list and have an awesome week!

Sending you lots of love and happiness

Well for those of you who have children, you’ll be in the midst of the summer holidays … how are you feeling?

On the first day, I turned to the wine! As did many other parents I know, but luckily things have got much better since then. In fact, I can’t believe they have been off over a week already. However, although I’m enjoying my time with them, and extremely grateful I can spend the holidays with them, I’m struggling to get any writing done, including my blog (which I love doing!) I’m also working on building my online wedding boutique www.calmweddings.com, so I have been very busy focusing on this every evening (when I can finally get the girls in bed).

So today, instead of writing a blog about what is going on in my world, as I said I love writing my blog but I also like reading blogs too, I thought I’d share with you some of the blogs I love … hopefully you might find them interesting too:

http://crooksonbooks.blogspot.co.uk/ – Dawn Crooks is a fab book reviewer. Some excellent books if you need a summer read.

http://jerasjamboree.com/ – Shaz Goodwin is a fab book reviewer and organiser of book tours.

www.bloglovin.com/ – You can find a range of fab blogs on here. I love  ‘a beautiful mess’ which is the guys who set-up bloglovin. I have a daily email come through,  and everyday I find something I really want to read – from cooking to decorating, they are full of ideas.

Anyway, hope you all enjoy the holidays and hope we can continue to have some great weather.

Happy reading xx
