Motivational Monday | Three Inspiring Lessons To Learn From Helen Keller

Happy New Year! ♥ ♥ “New year, new start.” Just like a lot of people, I begin 2017 with a fresh, positive outlook on the next twelve months and a whole new focus on achieving my dreams. Beyond my own sheer determination and eternally optimistic nature, I discovered another incredible source of inspiration this afternoon as I sat down […]

Motivational Monday | Which Wolf Will You Feed?

Today is ‘Blue Monday’, otherwise known as the third Monday in January and, supposedly, the most depressing day of the year – but you can change that, you can always change that. I wanted to share a parable that derives from Native American tradition to help to explain… One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his […]

Blogmas #5 | The 30-Day Generosity Challenge

Another Monday closer to Christmas, another day crossed off our calendars and another chocolate eaten in our advents! This is my favourite time of year because it’s filled with love and smiling faces, it’s the season of goodwill and there’s no better way to spread joy and happiness than generosity. Often, generous acts are part of our […]

Motivational Monday | Lukewarm Is No Good

This is a short but sweet Motivational Monday entry because the quote says it all. It’s important to be an enthusiast about life because what will having a glass-half-empty attitude achieve? You don’t know how many more trips around the sun you have, so no matter what difficulties or problems you’re currently facing, sometimes you need to brush […]

Motivational Monday | Be Unstoppable #LikeAGirl

Question: What does the phrase “like a girl” mean to you? In the family-comedy sports movie The Sandlot (1993), young baseball players hurl insults back and forth, when ‘Ham’ blurts out “You play ball like a girl!” …but what does that mean? When did the connotation become negative and why? The leading consumer product company, Proctor […]

The Starlight Blogger Award

In replace of Motivational Monday this week, I thought that I would make a start on responding to the outstanding blog awards that have been neglected! However, if you would rather get your motivation kick for the week, then maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for in my previous two entries Motivational Monday | Pay It Forward & Motivational Monday […]

Motivational Monday | Pay It Forward

I’ve experienced a case of writers block today, when I have so many ideas in mind, it can be difficult to focus on just one and attempt to shape that into coherent sentences. Coincidentally, I’ve also become my own worst critic, which is proven by the fact that I have another Motivational Monday post written and saved in my […]

Motivational Monday | Life Lessons From Peter Pan

Peter Pan, written by J.M. Barrie, has always been one of my favourite stories, which later got adapted for the big screen, produced by none other than Walt Disney, for release in 1953. Children would be drawn into the tale by the stunning scenery, beautiful mermaids and fairies, swashbuckling sword fights and breath-taking flying sequences, however as […]

Motivational Monday | Remember To Look Up

I have touched upon a similar topic previously for Motivational Monday in my Beauty is Everywhere and Pleased to Meet You blog posts, explaining things in our lives that we should take the time to appreciate, including anything from a beautiful sunset, a quiet ‘me’ moment and even a complete stranger adding brightness to our day. We are all so connected but what does […]

Motivational Monday | The Science Of Happiness

If you are familiar with my blog and more specifically my Motivational Monday series, then you might have noticed that I’m somewhat of a happiness activist. I like to promote happiness by sharing tips on how you may be able to increase your contentment, though I’m also realistic and know that people are not going to be 100% […]
