WORLD LAUGHTER DAY! Surround yourself with fun & quirky quotes to help keep you laughing!

Yes, there is such a thing as World Laughter Day. It is celebrated worldwide on the first Sunday of May every year. It was created by Dr. Madan Kataria in 1998 in Mumbai, India.

Dr.Madam Kataria founded the Yoga Laughter Movement. The idea to bring positivity, peace and unity across the globe, to connect with each other through laughter. Did you realise there are thousands of laughter clubs across 105 countries?

How awesome is this guy? Creating such an awesome day and spreading the love of laughter to so many people.

There’s so much sadness in the world, so to focus on laughter can bring so much joy to us. Laughing your way through problems can be the easiest way to overcome them. Joining others on their laughter mission could be just what you need. Yes, this can be easier said than done, but Dr. Madan Kataria has created tools you can use that will help.

In my research, of this awesome day, I found his online laughter university … I encourage you to take a look.

Imagine being surrounded by people who are happy. I understand that laughter or a smile doesn’t always mean happiness, but even faking it can make you feel better. Faking it until you feel it within. You will eventually feel that happiness and joy.

You can read my previous post on Laughter, participate in the therapeutic writing exercise and task. Find something to laugh about and spread this love to everyone.

This month I’ve added 10 downloadable funny and quirky quotes to my online shop. You can spread the joy throughout your home or workplace; a little reminder that laughter is so important.

The following prints come in a package for £9.99, which is less than £1 per print. You can print, frame for your home or as gifts for friends.

IT’S SPRINGTIME: Tips for those who don’t get a buzz out of cleaning!

Credit: Spot on Solutions

So it’s spring and that seems to come along with a term called ‘cleaning’ …

Yes, the time of year for, apparently, de-cluttering … 

Here’s the thing with cleaning at any time of the year, I know it’s good for the soul, I know it feels amazing AFTER, but I’m one of those women who doesn’t actually enjoy the ‘actual cleaning’.

I love this quote by Nancy Mitford:

“I think housework is far more tiring and frightening than hunting is, no comparison, and yet after hunting, we had eggs for tea and were made to rest for hours, but after housework people expect one to go on just as if nothing special had happened.”

Housework is one of those things I want the whole family to notice. I have friends who get such joy from cleaning … I wish I was like them … but I don’t think anything could ever make me LOVE cleaning! It’s something that HAS to be done.

Plus, when you have children it’s one of those things that never seems to end! I like to work on projects and tick them off my list knowing I’ve met a deadline. Cleaning doesn’t work like that when you have children …

You can spend a full day cleaning and the next day the house looks as if it’s been burgled. I’m a believer that life is precious and time is of the essence. However, all that aside, cleaning is kind of a must, unless you’re happy to wallow around in dust and dirt … 

On a serious note though, research shows that cleaning can make us happy! I’m going with the after-effect of cleaning can make us happy, because I do not clean my toilets and feel happiness.

But having a complete clear-out can be very soothing for the soul. That’s why spring cleaning has become a tradition. It’s a chance to clear out the winter clothes etc. It’s a time to get ready for brighter weather, clearer nights and longer days … it’s thought we become a lot more active when the sunnier weather arrives. 

So, I’ve admitted defeat and I have spring cleaned … I know … I was hoping the fairies would do it, but it didn’t happen, I got stuck in … lots of things went to the tip, lots of things went to charity and lots of things went in cupboards (because you just don’t know when they’ll be needed).

For those like me, who don’t find joy in the actual cleaning process, but LOVE the feeling after, I’ve put together a few tips for you …

  • THINK LONG-TERM

Think of cleaning as a job, a project … it will come to an end and you will feel empowered after. You will experience a kind of peace with yourself. Focus on this calming and peaceful feeling. Even if it lasts for a day!

  • PUT MUSIC OR AN AUDIOBOOK ON

This is a must for me; headphones in and listening to my latest book. I use audible from Amazon, which is fab. But if you’re a music lover, stick on your favourite tunes and dance your way around the dust.

  • ONE ROOM AT A TIME

I always think if you start from the top first and work your way down through the house. By eliminating rooms as you go, you’ll feel like you’re achieving something rather than flitting between different rooms and feeling like you’re not getting anywhere. Once you can close the door to one room, it will encourage you to keep going.

  • TAKE YOUR TIME

I love deadlines. I like things to be complete within a certain timeframe so I can move onto the next thing. That’s just the way I work, it helps me achieve important tasks. However, if you rush the cleaning process, you may not feel at peace when you finished. To do a thorough spring-clean could take a few days, a week or longer, (Try not to make the process too long, because you’ll be a full year in and back to spring cleaning again, plus the aim is to feel fresh and finished). However, life can’t stop because we are de-cluttering, so there will still be work commitments, school-runs, family duties etc. But don’t give up. Set yourself a realistic target and aim towards that.

  • REWARD YOURSELF

Ooohhhh …. my favourite tip! I’m a believer in rewarding my children for good behaviour, but I also believe this should extend to adults. If we’ve achieved a goal we should reward ourselves. It makes life lots more interesting. Your reward could be a glass of fizz or a new outfit (to fill up the space you’ve emptied in your clear-out!) Whatever you decide, indulge yourself … remember this reward as you work through each room.

Hopefully, the above tips will help. Admittedly it does feel lovely after the cleaning process is complete … until my girls decide to start on a creative project and the mess starts AGAIN!

This is the month to celebrate spring-time … so going with our printables theme this year, I’ve created some prints that will hopefully give you a spring in your step, or bring fun to your home.

Celebrating International Women’s Day: QUOTES FROM EMPOWERING AND INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN

We celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8th March.

This historical day began in the early 1900s when it was a great time for radical changes. It all began when 15,000 women came together and marched through the streets of New York demanding better hours, better pay and voting rights

You’ll have read about the suffragette movement, and how founder Emmeline Pankhurst was jailed at least ten times for speaking out about women’s rights. This movement caused women to not only be jailed but killed.

Some will say we still have a way to go, and I haven’t written this post to get into any political debate. I have written it though to express gratitude to all women. Yes, all women.

I love this quote by Angela Anagnost-Repke (Writer)

Dear Daughter, I hope that you are happy for other women’s victories and not jealous, are never afraid to be alone, don’t care about the size of the ring on your finger, can inhale a cheeseburger on the first date and always pull another woman up when she’s down.’

There have been some amazing women who have given everything to push for equality. They have overcome dire challenges, they have fought, they have continued to pursue their dream and goals. Women who strive forward with such passion, conviction and belief in themselves. Such women have paved the way for other women.

It’s our duty as women, to encourage, support and celebrate other women.

On this note, this month’s downloadable printables include quotes from many amazing women.

On my online shop you can purchase a variety of quotes:

Show your loved ones how much they mean with these unique special messages …

It’s February the month of love …

Personally, I think every single day should be about love!

Every single day should start with gratitude, appreciation and knowing that if you come from a place of love, not much negativity can touch you.

This isn’t about having ‘the love of your life’, this about love for yourself and for others.

I may now be going into a slight loving rant about ‘love is the only way to look at the world and how your perspective will change when you come from a place of love …’ but I’m sure if you read my posts, you’ll already know this.

In this month’s blog post, I thought it only fair to share the love with your loved ones. On the 14th February, people go all out to show their other half how much they mean to them, but sometimes the simplest, but most thoughtful, gifts can be the gem that catches their heart.

You can see the following designs on my online shop; purchase, download, print and frame.

10 PRINTS FOR ONLY £4.99 IN 2 DIFFERENT SIZES; 8X10 & 4X6 … YOU CAN USE THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN

Show your other half how much they set your soul on fire.

All the above are available on my online inspiring vibes shop.

You can get all 10 prints for ONLY £4.99 … in 2 different sizes!

SPREAD THE LOVE

30 Daily Affirmations To Give You A Boost

It’s January, the beginning of a New Year, we’re all fired up to achieve our resolutions, we know we’re going to make this ‘THE BEST YEAR EVER!’

We usually get New Year’s Day out of the way …

Day 2: We are on it!

Day 3 – We did well yesterday, we’ve got this!

Day 4 – This could be harder than we thought!

Day 5 – We give-up maybe next year …

The above may seem extreme, but most of us have been there. Many of us have had good intentions and not even reached day 2, let alone day 5.

I’m of the opinion that it doesn’t matter what day it is, you’ll know when you are ready to make a change. Even when you’re ready, the first few days can feel empowering … and we can start to lose our motivation, or belief, because things are not happening as fast as we would like them too.

If you read my blog or my writings, you’ll know one of my mantras is:

‘small steps count’

There’s a saying: ‘If this was your last day, what would you do today?’

Well, my answer to that is: ‘Take my daughters out of school, drive to hills, drink champagne and have a picnic!’

Now let’s be honest, if I lived every day like it was my last, I’d be an alcoholic and the social services would be making enquiries …

So, on a serious note, I get the meaning behind this quote … but it’s more realistic to ask yourself this question:

‘If I was to die tomorrow, what would I regret NOT doing?’

They’ll be things you want to achieve in your life, and today is the day to think about these things and start putting some plans in place.

If you read my blog, you’ll know I’m obsessed with therapeutic writing. Brainstorming is somewhat the same, you are releasing your thoughts onto paper. Once you do this, think about a plan and a strategy that will help you achieve your goal.

Now here’s the hardest part: putting that plan in place and sticking to it. Every day is important, every day is a new day. Every day is a chance to start again and stay focused. Don’t worry if you have a wobbly day, don’t continue down that spiral, pick yourself up and start again the next day.

One of my favourite quotes is from Zig Ziglar:

‘People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily’

It’s important to keep yourself motivated daily to ensure your goals will be achieved.

Another of my own mantras is:

‘Positive messages throughout the day, help to keep the negative thoughts away’

Surrounding yourself with positive quotes, messages and affirmations are a wonderful way to keep motivated.

They will help you believe in yourself, focus and work hard towards your dream.

In this post, I’ve included 30 affirmations.

These can be purchased and downloaded on my online shop.

Available in 2 different sizes; 4×6 and 8×10.

You can even make this post a favourite and refer back to it daily!

I just personally love having quotes around my home, not only for myself but as inspiration for my daughters and anyone who enters our home.

See below the affirmations you could download, print and frame.

All the above are available on my online inspiring vibes shop.

You can get all 30 prints for ONLY £10.00 … in 2 different sizes!

You can use them to motivate yourself or give as a gift to a loved one who may need a boost.

Or inspire colleagues by placing around your workspace.

5 Signs That You Are Zooming Through Life & How To Slow It Down

 

How often do you stop to take in your wonderful life? How often do you make a conscious effort to stop what you are doing and take stock of your life? Do you feel too busy and too tired? Can you see the beauty or only the barriers?

Credit: Image by tweetyspics on Pixabay

In life, there is only one guarantee … it will eventually end! As morbid as that sounds, as much as I believe in past-lives and our souls journeying through many lifetimes, this particular lifetime will come to an end at some point. Hopefully, it’s a long way off, however, what are doing to cherish the moments in this lifetime? Are you on the treadmill of life? Just letting the days pass you by?

Here are 5 signs you are zooming through life …

1.You don’t have time for family or friends you make excuses not to see people because you feel as if your schedule is already hectic.

2. You feel as if your free-time doesn’t exist – you don’t feel as if you have a minute to yourself and when you do, you’re far too tired to do anything. 

3. You don’t seem to have the motivation to do things – if you’re overtired or overwhelmed by your to-do list it can be hard to motivate yourself to do other things. 

4. Every day is a blur and you can’t wait for Friday – if you’re going through the motions of a 9-5 job, hanging onto your weekends, this is a sure sign that you’re simply existing rather than living.

5. You have nothing to look forward too – this doesn’t have to be a holiday or time away, it could be an evening with friends, a night at the cinema … if you have nothing to look forward to, get something booked in your diary.

What can you do to slow things down

All the above link in together, you are wading through each day, waiting for it to end. But you’re too busy to stop doing what needs to be done, you’re lacking the energy to make the changes. Now, if you’re on, what I call, ‘the treadmill of life’, it’s time to make some changes.

You may need some drastic changes; such as a change of lifestyle. This could be a change of job or a healthy change to your routine. Joining a gym or a club. If you feel you need a complete change, think about the things that would make you happy.

I love this question: What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

If you want big changes in your life sometimes we have to put small steps in place to make this happen. We often don’t make those changes because we can’t see the woods for the trees. Start writing a plan and brainstorm some ideas.

Ask yourself: What can I do today to start making changes?

However, you may not need the changes to be so drastic. You may just feel the mundane routine of life is passing you by. You may feel the excitement is just not there. You can put small things into place such as meeting with friends. Organise a night at the cinema or at the local quiz night. Do something with people who make you laugh. This will soon give you something to look forward to. Start filling your diary up with events. Not so much that you stress yourself out, but even if it’s once a month, even better if you can commit to once a week, but even arranging the first event is a step forward. Once you surround yourself with people whose company you enjoy, you will want to make more time to be with them.

Life is too short to be getting up every morning, getting on life’s treadmill and not getting off until it’s time for bed.

Make the changes, make something happen … push yourself to slow down and enjoy the ride.

Quotes To Show You, Laughter Will Keep You Young

Are you having enough laughter in your life?

In my previous post that I shared on laughter, I shared an article that research had shown how laughter is extremely good for us. Laughter is one of the best forms of releasing built-up anxiety and stress. Often if we’re not in a good place, the last thing we want to do is laugh. However, if we can bring ourselves out of the comfort zone of worrying and bring some lightness into our lives, you will see how laughter can help with lifting your worries.

I love this blog post by Thomas Flindt; he talks about his laughter classes and reasons why we stop laughing as we grow older.

The sound of children laughing is one of the best sounds. I love listening to my daughters playing and something setting them off laughing. Plus, they both have a way of trying to tell me a funny story, but can’t get their words out because the laughter has kicked in, this in itself makes me laugh. I truly appreciate those times and we relish in them together.

In my previous post on laughter you can take part in the therapeutic writing exercise. Ask yourself are you laughing enough? Plus, you’ll find more quotes, tips and advice on bringing more laughter into your life.

So as promised, here’s some awesome quotes to encourage more laughter into your life.

You can even visit my shop and purchase the quotes below … surround yourself with positive and fulfilling thoughts.

Remember, laughter will keep you young. So surround yourself with wonderful quotes that will help lift your spirits and remind you to look on the brighter side of life.

‘Positive messages throughout the day keep the negative thoughts away.’

Love & happiness to you always

Surround Yourself With Imagination Quotes To Help Your Dreams Come True

Imagination is what can bring dreams into reality

If you read my blog posts, or you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, you’ll probably understand the quote, ‘Your thoughts create your reality …’ and other quotes similar to this. In other words, what we think about, what we muse upon, what we worry about, what we are happy about … the thoughts that dominate our minds the most, are the thoughts that we project out to the universe and these are delivered back to us, with situations and circumstances representing those thoughts.

Have you ever noticed how miserable people always have something to complain about and how happy people see the brighter side of life? It doesn’t mean that happier people don’t have anything to complain about, it simply means they choose to look at the things they are grateful for, therefore, bringing more happiness to them. Once you start noticing this, you will start to monitor your thoughts.

Whether you believe the above or not, why not start having some fun with it. Use your imagination to create something you want in your life. Imagine receiving it; imagine the feeling of receiving it. The universe responds to feelings … it is all about the emotion connected to your thoughts. Ie: the universe reacts to your feelings and emotions. So if you’re feeling sad and down, it can be hard to get yourself out of that rut. It can be hard to imagine feeling good and happy. So the best way to do this, is to imagine something amazing happening in your life. Imagine how you would feel if you got some good news about something you want. Imagine that feeling. The emotion linked to this is very important. Remember being a child and being able to role-play … bring your inner child to the forefront.

If you would like help even further on using your imagination, you can read the previous post here to help you use your imagination to live the life you have dreamed about, includes quotes and a therapeutic writing exercise.

If you’d like to surround yourself with imagination quotes to remind you to believe in your dreams, you can visit my shop here

 

Play the imagination game … it’s fun! Visualise and manifest the wonderful, amazing life you deserve. Stay positive and use your imagination to bring positive things into your life. Remember to surround yourself with positive messages, as this works as a reminder to keep your thoughts uplifted and your imagination thriving.

‘Positive messages throughout the day, help to keep the negative thoughts away’

Love & happiness to you always

Ten Products To Help You Achieve Your Dreams

Do you feel as if you have many dreams but just can’t achieve them?

Do you feel as if your dreams are too big to achieve?

If you feel you can’t achieve your dreams or your dreams are too big, then you are projecting this out to the universe. The universe is then saying, ‘Well if that’s what you think, then so it is.’ So if you were to change your thoughts to know that you CAN achieve your dreams, watch how the universe responds to that. Nothing is too big if you believe. Believe in yourself. Don’t listen to the nay-sayers. If you have a dream, this is your passion, imagine it is your purpose … YOU GOT THIS!

If you’re struggling with this concept, as many of us have and do … try this therapeutic writing exercise to help you understand how following your dreams will make you happier.

If you can’t fulfil your dream for yourself, for whatever reason (if this is the case, you need to read every single one of my blog posts and instil a belief and love in yourself) look at fulfilling it for the greater good. We are here to serve. Once you realise this and understand that we can’t let our ego or other people’s egos get in our way, you will be much happier. Follow your dreams, as you are dreaming for a reason.

Ten Products That Will Help You Be Courageous

Do you have the courage to pursue your goals?

Do you listen to your ego and not allow yourself to feel the freedom of following your dreams?

You are here for a reason; your passion is your purpose – your purpose is your reason for being.

So have the courage to let go of self-doubts, other people’s doubts and make your life’s purpose, your life mission.

Below I’ve listed some awesome products that can help you find the courage to follow your heart. Before you look through them, why not try out the self-reflective therapeutic creative writing exercise, designed to help you see how courageous you are.

You can be whoever you want to be. You can be the person who trundles through life, whining that it’s unfair because you are not living the life of your dreams, OR you can be the person who courageously took your passion and pursued your life mission with all that you had. No listening to nay-sayers, mood-hoovers and negativity. You can be the person who made it happen.

By choosing the latter, which is the option I insist you have the courage to take, you will see a lift in your energy. This lift is telling you that you’re on the right track. While fulfilling your passion and purpose see how many people are positively affected by you pursuing your goal. By you having the courage to focus on what it is you want from life, you automatically give out positive vibes, these vibes are like a chain reaction, they spread to others and your courage encourages them. Now you may not be able to give up the day job, just yet, but start investing time into your passion. Remember; small steps count. Have the courage to pursue the reason you are here.

Still feel you need a little support? Here are some of my favourite products to help you find your courageous streak.

1. The Courage to Be Creative: How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path

Every time I write about Doreen Virtue’s books, I want to say, ‘This is my favourite’ … all her books are so amazing that I can’t help but be drawn to them all. This particular book truly resonated with me, as being a creative soul that was never encouraged too much as a child, I struggled to conform to the traditional job roles that I was expected to take on. So listening to this, as I did through audible, Doreen Virtue touched my heart and soul. I truly connected with this book and I encourage anyone who is not only creative, but also those who may be at a loss as to what their purpose is, this book will definitely help.

      

2. Courage Is Contagious: And Other Reasons to Be Grateful for Michelle Obama

This book is short but powerful. A collection of stories from people who have met Michelle Obama, and how she is one of the most awesome and courageous women that changed their lives. Michelle Obama is such an inspiration and listening to real-life stories that have impacted others just made me in more awe of her.

      

3. Portable Color Me Fearless: 70 Coloring Templates to Boost Strength and Courage

How could I not include this? I love these therapeutic colouring books that have become ever so popular over the last few years, but ‘Color Me Fearless’ what a name! Let your mind drift to your dreams while you build your strength and courage as you create an array of beautiful colours on these 70 templates. Plus, it’s portable … take it with you wherever you go.

      

4. Notebook Journal – Strong and Courageous 

I’m a notebook lover. Most writers I know are also notebook lovers. If we see a notebook we are drawn too, we can’t help but buy it and stash it with our collection of random, unused notebooks. So I couldn’t resist showing you this beautiful notebook, that displays the awesome words, ‘Be strong and courageous’.

      

5. ‘There is a superman in all of us we just need the courage to put on the cape’ -superman quote

I absolutely adore this quote. If you are struggling with being courageous, this is a great quote to place in your home, so you can see it daily and be reminded that you are strong enough. I’m all about encouraging our children to believe in themselves, they can be whoever they want to be, they can do whatever they want to do … this quote is perfect for a child’s bedroom. A morning and evening affirmation that will give them belief.


     

6. Muhammad Ali He Who Is Not Courageous Quote – Wall Sticker

Another awesome wall quote that will encourage anyone who reads it. Sometimes we have to be courageous enough to follow our hearts and souls, follow our reason for being, if that means taking some risks, then so be it. However, don’t doubt yourself when you take these risks, you don’t want that doubt being reflected back to you. Believe in yourself. You got this!

      

7. Courageous Heart Crystal Pendant, made with Crystals from Austria
