Reasons to be cheerful - 19th July 2018

Clearing out the crap... To be honest, my biggest reason to be cheerful this week involved vampires (not the ones I write about). I've cleared loads of crapola out of my life and I'm feeling fab for it. That includes not having blogged since last week, because - you know what - I was trying too hard to be something I'm not and trying too hard to tick boxes and be like other people.

I have spent a lot of time this week in my garden looking at the sky and being grateful for what I have and the fantastic life I'm building for myself.

And that's it. That's my reason to be cheerful this week, I am thankful, for all the positive people in my life and for having the courage to get rid of the stuff that was making me sad.

  1. A short post but a really lovely and powerful one. I too have changed my habits this week doing more of what really matters #R2BC

    1. Thanks Kate, I wrote it and deleted it and wrote it again, because it's where I'm at right now xx

    1. Yay Becky! Hope you're not suffering too much with your ear xx

  3. That sounds like a massive reason, when we take the time to do what makes our hearts sing and not try to be like others it always make us more joyful. Well done. Mich x

    1. Thanks Mich, yes, my heart has been doing a lot of singing xx

  4. I'm all for having a clear out. Too much stuff holds you down.

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
