It’s Monday again, which means a fresh new start to your week!
Here are some tips for making your Monday a little less blue. Lets do this!
1. This is your perfect chance to correct any mistakes you made in the previous week! Make a list of everything that you want to accomplish by next Monday to keep yourself motivated & see how many things you can tick off your list during the week 🙂
2. Organise something exciting to do on your day(s) off – The week is always easier to get through if you know what’s waiting for you when the weekend shows its pretty little face!
3. Realise that before you know it, the weekend will be here! *Flash back to last weeks Friday dance*
Happy Monday 🙂 ! xo

Hey there, I hope that your 2015 has started off as the most wonderful year yet. If it hasn’t, don’t worry, sunshine is heading your way, I promise, it won’t rain forever 🙂
Yesterday I came across a brilliant app & wanted to share it with you all. It’s called “Happier”. It’s simple to use and could have a huge impact on your daily life!
What is it? – I guess you would call it a social media app. “Not another one!” I hear you cry. Don’t worry its something with a completely new concept. They describe it as a “fun social gratitude journal combined with a positive community” & that’s exactly what it is.
What’s it about? – Being happy & inspiring others happiness
How does it work? – You have your own profile where you can share your happiest moments either publicly or privately. For example: “I am so grateful that I get to come home everyday to the cutest doggie in the world” *insert picture of my dog*. The happier community can then choose to “smile” (equivalent to a “like” on Facebook) at what you have shared & they can also comment on it too. If you find somebody you connect with & like reading their posts, you have the option to “follow” them. (Unless you’re in the social media world, that sounds kind of creepy doesn’t it?)
How can this change my life? – Surrounding yourself with positive, happy people in your real life can be challenging sometimes! Here, everyone has the same goal…to be happy! Share your moments, whether small or mighty & have those to look back on when you need a boost. Happiness is infectious & you can help inspire others to find the sunshine in their glum days. The more you realise how many blessings you have in life, the happier you will become & the healthier your mind will feel. You can stop saying “I’ll be happy when ___” & start thinking “I’m happy because___” 🙂
Overall, I think this is a really positive step as far as apps go & I hope millions of people get on board and download the app. It could change lives & perhaps even save lives.
I know you’re wondering how much it costs…IT’S FREE!

Thanks for reading, feel free to share this post with others if you also think the app is great & want to spread the word
& remember…Smile 🙂
I know it is slightly (only slightly ha ha) too early to be even contemplating thinking about Christmas or New Year (please stay with me & keep reading) but I had a thought today & wanted to share it with you.
At the beginning of the year, many of us make New Years resolutions, perhaps share them with co-workers, family or friends. Or, just make a mental note of a list of things we would like to change in our lives in the year ahead.. It could be.. to read more often, to make healthier choices, to see our family more often…whatever our heart desires.
Today I was thinking about what I had personally hoped to achieve in 2014. How do I feel about those things now? Are they still my goals? What do I have left to do?
I wanted to write this post today to remind you that we do still have time in 2014 to turn it all around if you didn’t achieve those things, don’t give up now! Make the last months of 2014 count so that we can all look back & be so proud of what we have achieved & look forward to the exciting times ahead in 2015! …. Plus, it does make next years resolutions list that bit smaller if we get a few things done now 😉 hehe.
Towards the beginning of the year, motivation is usually at its highest. However, as the months go on, life gets ahead of you & you may start to forget all/some of those wonderful promises that you made to yourself. If you ever feel like quitting, remember why you made those promises in the first place.
I don’t want to be one of those people who feels slightly bitter about, yet again not accomplishing what I wanted to & adding it onto next years hopes. I want to be one of those people who can say… In 2014, I vowed to make these changes in my life & I HAVE!!
Sometimes change can be painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere that you don’t belong. Find the courage within yourself to let go of the things you can’t change & start today to change those that you CAN!
Good luck to anybody who is trying to make a change in their lives, no matter what it may be. I’m sending you my best of best wishes, huge hugs for the hard times & I hope that when you look back at your 2014, it was everything that you wanted it to be and more..xo
