Inspirational Word of the Week: Magic

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How much magic are you spreading?

Credit: Pinterest

This is definitely one of my favourite words …

As children, we believe in magic and we watch magical things happen. It’s only as we progress into adulthood that we lose our belief, but once you start to believe you will be amazed at how things can become magical.

But in the words of Roald Dahl, ‘Those who don’t believe in magic, will never find it’.

And in the words of, Dr Wayne Dyer, ‘Believe it to see it.’

Sometimes life offers us challenges, and believing in magic might be somewhat hard to do. However, if you were to see these challenges as a diversion that was taking you to a better place, can you start to believe that magical things could happen?

If you’re still struggling with this, that’s absolutely fine … sometimes our challenges just feel too much. A little overwhelming? Overbearing? That’s why I’ve created my therapeutic creative writing exercises for the first six months of the year. You can refer back to any of the A-Z inspirational words and seek out the writing exercises. If you’re finding it hard to find the magic in life it’s best starting from the beginning with Inspirational Word: Appreciation … Once you start to look for things to be grateful for, you’ll be amazed at how you magically have so much more to be grateful for.

However, if you’d like to get straight into the magical therapeutic creative writing exercises, you can see our previous blog on life’s wonderful magic here.

You can also see below the message of magic, we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as I always say, you never know who needs to see your message.

But firstly, here are a few quotes about life’s magic to help you think about how grateful you are.

As always, my mini message to you and why I love inspirational quotes … (I repeat this message on these blogs, as I truly want people to look at the positives in life and focus on the good. By reiterating that here, if it helps at least one person, then this blog is worth it)

I truly hope you get something from my words. When I was at my lowest, I inundated myself with quotes. I even started my own spreadsheet of quotes. I remember updating my spreadsheet while sitting in one of the spare bedrooms of my in-laws’ house, my two-year-old cuddled up to me, while my newborn laid in the crib next to the bed. I remember thinking, I have to stay positive. We have to get through this period of helplessness; lost businesses, family disputes, mental health problems, financial wreckage … it was safe to say, I was so grateful to my in-laws for putting a roof over our heads and food in our mouths, as I’m not sure where we would have ended up. I keep this short, as this part of my life is a novel in itself. But I want you to know, life is full of lessons … it’s up to us to face those challenges, knock down those barriers and keep going. Staying positive is easier said than done when you’re faced with daily struggles, but I trained my brain to only look at the bright side and block out the negative. By doing this, the Universe showed me that I can have all that I dream of and life can be magical, miracles do happen and life can be pretty awesome.

I developed my spreadsheets into daily inspirational quote books. A few years later, when I started my MA in Creative Writing, I totally connected with reflective writing. Hence the reason, I developed therapeutic creative writing exercises on my blog.

Since then, I’ve never given up on inspirational messages. I love them; I wake up to them, I go to sleep with them. I have my own affirmations. I want everyone to know the power of the mind. The power that you have to inspire yourself and others, no matter how much you feel this can’t happen for you. Trust me, from someone who felt the same, it can happen for you. YOU can make it happen. Remember, the Law of Attraction is always working, so if you feel negative things are happening in your world, listen to your thoughts, look for things to be grateful for, look for things to appreciate and watch your world become blessed with miracles and magic.

This was one of the reasons I created my online inspirational clothing store, as you never know who needs to see the messages & how it could help them at that moment in time.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Love

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How much LOVE are your giving?

Credit: Speech Foodie

This weekend I attended a Hay House event, in London and listened to the awesome Gabrielle Bernstein, if you’ve not heard of Gabby, you MUST click onto her website NOW! I have followed motivational speakers for years, a few of my favourites being Tony Robbins, Doreen Virtue and of course, the late Louise Hay and Dr.Wayne Dyer … I came across Gabby this year, her book, ‘The Universe Has Your Back,’ popped up in my audible feed. I praise God that she did!

A motivational speaker with spunk, flair and a down-to-earth approach.

She is amazing. She is funky. She is fun. She is REAL! I thought this when I listened to her book, but to see her in person was awesome. She is just fantastic!

She tells us how it is … get over ourselves, it’s not about us … it’s about how we can serve! Stop listening to our ego and follow our hearts and passion.

Our purpose here is simply about LOVE! How can we give more love, how can we become more loving individuals?

I love this. I love her. If we look from LOVE, look at the light that shines within us and turn to God. Now, I often feel a bit nervous about using the term God … I grew up with a father who was an atheist. A true atheist, he would argue with anyone who proclaims to believe in a higher power.

As I have grown, I always felt guided by something bigger than we are as individuals. When I was eight years old we moved next door to a family who worshipped God. I was drawn to this family, but I wasn’t sure why. We attended their church a couple of times with them, to watch people experience something amazing. This was something that my father didn’t agree with and our visits to the church were soon stopped.

However, as I’ve grown and I’ve turned to a spiritual higher power to help guide me, especially in the lowest times … now you can use the term, ‘God’ or we can look at terms such as, ‘spirituality’, ‘angels’, ‘universe’ … they all relate. We are all one. Believe we are all one … we are no better than anyone else and no-one is better than us … everything we do should come from LOVE! Only with LOVE!

You can see the therapeutic creative writing exercises here, that will help you become a more loving person. See the previous blog about love here.

You can also see below the ‘Send Love Always’ message we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as you never know who needs to see your message.

But firstly, here are a few inspirational quotes about the importance of ‘spreading the love’.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Kindness

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How kind have you been this week?

Credit: Saying Images

The best thing you can do to someone who you feel doesn’t deserve your kindness, is to offer it to them. Give them all the kindness you can find inside of you.

Other people’s attitudes say more about them, offering your kindness says a lot about you. Those who are unkind, who do not offer a helping hand and find it easier to judge than understand, are the people who need your kindness more than you realise.

A kind heart will lead you down a delightful path. So think about the things you have done this week to offer your kindness to others? Have you been unkind in some way? Being unkind to an individual is a sure way of the universe bringing unkindness back to you.

We never know what is going on in people’s lives, and we never know how much a kind word or kind gesture can help them.

So do something this week that takes you out of your comfort zone and offer a mass of kindness to someone who needs it. You may not feel they deserve it, but offer your kindness and watch the miracles happen.

If you’d like to know more about,

How you can express more kindness, you can read our previous kindness blog here, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Journey

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: Are you enjoying your journey?

Credit: Pinterest

This week, think about your life journey, are you actually enjoying where your life is going? Is there any part of your journey you would like to change?

Are you even going in the right direction? Sometimes we need to take a detour to get to the right place. Sometimes these detours feel like the worse thing that can happen, but if we look for positives in every challenge (and yes, there will be some positives) we can see why our journey is going in a certain direction.

But remember, you can create your own journey. You are in the driving seat. You can choose to respond to situations and you can steer your life in the direction that you desire. You have the power to have the most enjoyable journey ever!

If you’d like to know more about,

How best to enjoy your life journey, you can read the previous blog here, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Generous

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How generous are you?

Credit: Ehc neuwied

Do you consider yourself a generous person? If someone asks something of you, do you feel begrudge doing it? Or do you give willingly?

Being generous is one of the most beautiful traits you can possess. To give your time and energy is one of the most generous things you can give.

The Law of Attraction works in a wonderful way … so the more you give to yourself and to others, the more you will receive back. Although, you shouldn’t set out to give just to receive, as this being in your thoughts, the universe knows this. Giving just to receive isn’t being generous at all.

If you’d like to know more about, How you can increase your generosity to yourself and others, you can read more here, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Forgive

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How forgiving are you? Of yourself? Or others?

Credit: Brainy Quote

Forgiveness can feel like a hard thing to do. If someone has hurt you, that hurt can burn away inside of you. But how wonderful would it feel to get rid of that burning inside … well, it is possible … once you learn to forgive and send love instead of anger, you’ll feel as if a weight has been lifted.

The only person you are hurting by holding onto resentment, anger or frustration, is yourself.

Life is too short to be angry with others and yourself. Each day is a fresh start. A new day to focus on your love for others and yourself.

This is easier said than done. Forgiveness can be one of the hardest things to do. Especially if someone you love has hurt you. It doesn’t mean that you let a person back into your life, but it does mean you let it go. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to let people walk all over you. It’s just a better way of living. Once you learn to forgive you understand the world is a brighter place. You’ll feel like a weight has been lifted. One of the worst things you can do is seek revenge. Whatever you put out into the universe, you’ll receive back. So any anger you are holding onto, this will be reflected back to you in your own life. Forgiveness can be one of the hardest things to do, but one of the most rewarding.

This not only goes for forgiving others but also forgiving yourself …

As I mentioned, this can be said than done, but you can see my previous blog post that includes a therapeutic creative writing exercise to help you – see how you can become a forgiving person.

You can also see below the ‘forgiveness message’ we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as you never know who needs to see your message.

After this week, it has amazed me the support I’ve received. Especially from book bloggers. They have been amazing and I can’t thank them enough. I’ve been overwhelmed with the response I’ve received. So I felt the need to send a special thank you to:
Joanne Robertson of My Chestnut Reading Tree, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the weekend, it was so lovely to meet Joanne. A huge thank you to Joanne, for starting my blog tour last week, with her awesome review:
I actually read this book back in 2013 when it was published under its previous title How My Life Became Chaos and really loved it and the two other titles that came after it in the Chaos series. So I was absolutely thrilled when I learned that Bombshell Books had signed Victoria J Brown and were publishing her books. It means I can rave about this book once again and hopefully bring some new fans to this brilliant series!
And a huge thank you to Chandra Claypool from Where the Reader Grows, who joined Joanne on Sunday 16th to kick-off the blog tour. Thank you for your lovely review:
The author gives us a glimpse of what normal life is and how quickly it can change.  Paranoia, insecurities, love, forgiveness, grief – we get a taste of it all in this book.  
A huge thank you to Sarah Hardy, who has been an amazing support. I also had the pleasure of meeting Sarah at the weekend, it was so lovely to put names to faces. Another lovely lady who has really helped me this week 🙂 You can have a read Sarah’s wonderful review here on her blog, By The Letter Book Reviews
Holding Myself is the first book in a series featuring Kat. To start with the book feels like it’s going to be some sort of light hearted chick lit read but it is actually much deeper than that.
The Harrogate weekend also gave me the pleasure of meeting Alexina Golding, who is the Commissioning Advisor for Bloodhound Books, blogger and Alex was so supportive and I can’t thank her enough for her encouragement. Thank you so much Alex. Although, she wasn’t part of the blog tour, she was kind enough to leave me an awesome review on her blog BookStormer. 
A wonderfully captivating story of life and struggles, with some extremely heart rendering moments.
Julie Ryan has been a great support with my writing and I can’t thank her enough. Julie, an author herself, supported me back when, ‘Holding Myself’ was released as part of the Chaos Series. She kindly reviewed and supported me again when Bombshell Books published Holding Myself. You can see Julie’s review here on her blog, All Things Bookie
Having really enjoyed this book I find it hard to believe that this is Victoria J Brown’s first novel as the writing just flows and the style is very accomplished. It’s an easy to read novel and although I’ve seen it described as chick-lit, the topics it deals with are very serious and sympathetically treated.
My next thank you has to go to Laura Turner from pageturnersnook for her amazing review. I’m hoping Laura has embarked on a women’s fiction-athon and is hopefully enjoying the reads …
Whilst reading Holding Myself, it was almost like Kat and I were best friends and we were sat,
her relaying her tale to me.
And another huge thank you to Laura Bambrey from Bambrey Books … 
 Holding Myself deals with some harrowing and incredibly difficult issues- but far from being a difficult read, the tone and craft of the writing turns this into a gripping, unputdownable drama laced with moments of humour and warmth that seem to hug the reader to them.
A massive thank you to Rachel Broughton from Rae Reads for her emotionally warm review of Holding Me,
I was surprised by how involved I became in both the story and the characters lives and it was a deeper read than I was expecting to find.
Gemma Garskarth from Between the Pages, gave a fab review on the 19th July, a few days after Holding Me was released. Thank you so much to Gemma for your support and encouragement:
 A well deserved five stars from me and I will be looking out for future books by Victoria Brown.
A very 21st century book!
A massive thank Lena Baker from The P.Turners Book Blog for her awesome review:

There are lots of twists and turns along the way and things don’t work out quite how you would expect, however it still leaves you with that satisfied, happy feeling when you come to the end. A great page turner that you can’t put down.

Thank you, Alison Daughtry Drew  from The Dragon Slayer for your lovely review:

Victoria has a knack of writing in such a way that little by little the story unfolds and the reader finds themselves engrossed in amongst the characters and part of the ongoing situation.

Another fantastic review from Emma-Louise Smith from Read, Write, Inspire. Thank you lots Emma-Louise.

The book while touching on sensitive subjects such as pregnancy, abortion, death, miscarriage and physical/mental abuse managed to stay quite light and not too heavy.

Kate Olsen from The Loud Library Lady made my week when she likened me to Sophie Kinsella and Jenny Oliver. A massive thank you Kate, I’m so pleased you enjoyed Holding Myself:

I found myself falling into Kat’s story immediately upon beginning to read this book, and finished it in one evening. Brown writes in an intensely readable fashion, one that I liken to many of my very favourite chick lit writers such as Sophie Kinsella and Jenny Oliver – conversational and very relatable.

And thank you to Emma Mitchell from the Little Bookworm for featuring my guest post.
Thank you to Lauren Anderson from As The Page Turns for featuring an extract of Holding Myself
I’m truly grateful to everyone who supported me on my blog tour and launch of ‘Holding Myself’.
A huge thank you to everyone who shared, retweeted and spread the word. I’m so proud to be published by Bombshell Books. It’s such an honour to be part of the team headed by Betsy and Fred, their support and encouragement for writers is instrumental to people like me fulfilling their dreams. However, the support from book bloggers and readers is also essential.
Time is so precious and I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to support me.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to read my book, review my book and supported me this week. I can’t be more than grateful than I am right now.
Sending you all lots of love
Victoria

Inspirational Word of the Week: Embrace

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: Are you embracing your life? Are you embracing yourself?

Are you embracing all that you are?

Credit: Pinterest

Do you wake-up every morning and thank God you’re alive?

Do you truly embrace the feeling that you’ve actually woke-up? Are you grateful for the day ahead? Or do you worry about the tasks you’ll be undertaking that day?

Take the quote I’ve featured here … ‘Just for today, allow yourself to embrace …’ read the rest and really think about this.

If we did this every day for the rest of our lives, can you imagine how much you would start to embrace life? Every morning waking up to a fresh new day with your first thoughts about embracing the goodness in your life. Be thankful, grateful and appreciate that you are alive … take each new day and embrace it.

You can read here, How to Embrace Yourself and Your Life, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey, it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

You can also see below the message of embrace that we are spreading through inspirational clothing, remember … you never know who needs to see your message.

But firstly, here are a few inspirational quotes that will give you more thoughts on embracing yourself and life.

As always, my mini message to you and why I love inspirational quotes … (I repeat this message on these blogs, as I truly want people to look at the positives in life and focus on the good. By reiterating that here, if it helps at least one person, then this blog is worth it)

I truly hope you get something from my words. When I was at my lowest, I inundated myself with quotes. I even started my own spreadsheet of quotes. I remember updating my spreadsheet while sitting in one of the spare bedrooms of my in-laws’ house, my two-year-old cuddled up to me, while my newborn laid in the crib next to the bed. I remember thinking, I have to stay positive. We have to get through this period of helplessness; lost businesses, family disputes, mental health problems, financial wreckage … it was safe to say, I was so grateful to my in-laws for putting a roof over our heads and food in our mouths, as I’m not sure where we would have ended up. I keep this short, as this part of my life is a novel in itself. But I want you to know, life is full of lessons … it’s up to us to face those challenges, knock down those barriers and keep going. Staying positive is easier said than done when you’re faced with daily struggles, but I trained my brain to only look at the bright side and block out the negative. By doing this, the Universe showed me that I can have all that I dream of and life can be magical, miracles do happen and life can be pretty awesome.

I developed my spreadsheets into daily inspirational quote books. A few years later, when I started my MA in Creative Writing, I totally connected with reflective writing. Hence the reason, I developed therapeutic creative writing exercises on my blog.

Since then, I’ve never given up on inspirational messages. I love them; I wake up to them, I go to sleep with them. I have my own affirmations. I want everyone to know the power of the mind. The power that you have to inspire yourself and others, no matter how much you feel this can’t happen for you. Trust me, from someone who felt the same, it can happen for you. YOU can make it happen. Remember, the Law of Attraction is always working, so if you feel negative things are happening in your world, listen to your thoughts, look for things to be grateful for, look for things to appreciate and watch your world become blessed with miracles and magic.

Fill yourself with positive thoughts and watch the negativity fade away.

How we see these messages can be through various forms, but sometimes people are not looking for them  … but they need them. This was one of the reasons I created my online inspirational clothing store, as you never know who needs to see the messages & how it could help them at that moment in time.

I hope you find something that will help spread love, inspiration and encouragement.

Happy browsing, sending you love, happiness and joy always

Love Victoria

Inspirational Monday – My Journey

Inspirational Monday

What an exciting couple of days!

It has made me realise that I’m on the right path …

If you read my blog, you’ll know I’m a huge lover of inspirational messages and following dreams while appreciating life, being grateful and sending love always. Positive thinking is really the only way to move life forward, even when those life challenges are testing us. I hope you find this post inspiring and it motivates you to NEVER GIVE UP!

Yesterday, my original chaos series was re-released by Bombshell Books

 NEW COVER & A NEW NAME! And I think it looks pretty awesome!

In the process of Sarah Hardy, the fabulous publicist at Bloodhound/Bombshell Books organising my book blog tour, I was lucky enough to talk with the lovely Joanne Robertson about my journey to becoming a writer and how my dreams are now coming true.

In writing this post, it made me realise how far I’ve come and what I’ve actually been through. I’ve not gone into too much detail, as to be honest, my life is a novel in itself … but it made me realise that the journey may have been tough at times, but not giving up, continually pushing, hoping, praying and ultimately believing, has made my dreams of publication come true. I pleased I started my inspirational blog and company … I truly hope others are inspired to achieve their own goals.

You can see a part of my journey on Joanne’s lovely blog, My Chestnut Reading Tree

Thank you to all that have and are taking part in the blog tour, those who have interacted on social media, those who have purchased the book, those who have left reviews … I am feeling extremely blessed.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Divine

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: Is your life divine? Do you see yourself as divine?

Do you believe the divine is within you?

Credit: Picture Quotes

Most people would answer, No, to these questions.

But it depends how we define, divine!

What would you need to do to enhance your life and make it divine?

Have you thought about how the divine is within us? How you, yes, YOU, are divine?

Take the above question and write down some ideas on how you would envisage your life if you were to describe it as divine. If it’s easier, think of it in terms of a ‘divine day’. Also, think about being divine, you are light, your life is a reflection of this light, your thoughts and what you imagine. Imagine being a divine source that can attract all that you want.

So, truly think about this, truly think about yourself as the divine and living a divine life … this doesn’t have to be the paradise setting on a beach … for some people, it could be having a bubble bath, walking across the hills or simply having some me-time.

Whatever your idea of divine is, imagine living that life and think about how you can get there. If it’s easier, start with baby steps. Imagine one thing in your life that you’d like to change, something that would make your life a little more divine. I’m a huge believer in, ‘small steps count’, so start taking small steps to your divine life.

You can read How to Live a Divine Life here, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

You can also see below the ‘divine inspirational message’ we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as you never know who needs to see your message. By showing others the message, ‘feeling divine’, they can think about how they, too, can feel divine. Go and spread some divine love.

Firstly, here’s a few divine inspirational quotes to get you thinking about the word, ‘divine.
