Hello, so yes I have a new Newsletter that I am going to create each month talking about things I have been doing and challenges I have been taking on and going to take on, and I have added some Special Days I like to celebrate and what talking about Spring 2022.
So first off, I want to say a big thank you to all your feedback, liking my blogs on this site and you help me build it up and inspire too, and I love being part of the “Blog Community and network” so thank you and for following me truly, utterly grateful.
Rising to the top was an idea I had watching the Winter Olympics, and how much training that these athletes do to get to be a gold medallist and even compete and it means training every single day so it becomes like drinking water.
I bet some have had falls from doing for example Snowboarding, and ended up in hospital, but they still continue on to rise to the top.
Now we aren’t all going to be able to have a gold medal but doesn’t mean you’ll never rise to the top, because we all have it within ourselves to be better to what we already are, for example I knew that if I continued dancing and gaining my medals I would win the cup for the highest marks and I did it.
I needed a weekend job that suited my lifestyle being a mum and finding something I could do that would not interfere with looking after my son, and so found one and recently I wanted to stop working in a call centre to do Childcare and Housekeeping. I wasn’t good as a housekeeper but I did love the nursery work I did.
Due to circumstances couldn’t continue on because of the hours and because of COVID, but doesn’t mean that I failed or didn’t accomplish anything, because I did. It helped me to build my experience in one of the sectors I wanted to work in.
Now I going to be working in a holiday club, and means I can still do the school run until I find something with in the school term to do, but can work around my sons dad’s schedule and my mums, but feel that this is going to be a great opportunity and so looking forward to it.
This blog I created because I was searching answers to change the way that I felt about my life. I felt I hadn’t achieved anything but I have. I did the Great North Run, I was able to travel to Florida for Christmas and went business class, and it was nice to live that lifestyle and now I want to create more dream holidays and memories.
Rising to the top comes with many paths and roads you follow and hurdles for example, after doing the Royal Parks run I couldn’t walk properly as I had Runners Knee and it hurt, but then I continued to do more running and walking.
Yet I completed the half marathon and once I did these events would reflect and made me see you don’t need to be a millionaire to succeed in life, but what you put into it that matters.
So never feel you can’t rise to the top in whatever your passion is because trust me you can.
I am writing and putting together my Newsletter for February so will link that once this has been donel
I do write other blog sites, have three Youtube channels, on social media and have online courses. So if you want to check these out you can, the links are below:
I think it is important to have time for ourselves because when we don’t we can feel worn out. Thursdays I am always extra tired and it is not because I have issues sleeping because I haven’t, its because I try to do too much and I travel a lot and so it takes its toll.
I make sure that I have days where I don’t put anything onto my skin, I make sure I keep my hair healthy by wearing a shower cap and my body, by taking supplements to help me, and I have a good routine now that if I need extra rest I take it and then Friday I am fine, back to feeling human again.
I try and take my time, as I hate the mad rush and I do this by having a cup tea or a coffee really helps. I hate being later for anything, and I find being regularly late is disrespectful, as it seems like that person doesn’t really care, and promised after 20 years of being late, to finally be on time.
It is often “I will always be late” attitude “But that’s me” and I feel like well “Sorry for waiting for 3 hours for you to show your face, but that’s just me”.
If you can’t make it or gonna be late, let the person know, but if you keep letting them be late, then that is not helping them. I hate for people to think I am unreliable, that “She’s always late”. When I have been late I learn from it, as it often was because I would be lost. I have no sense direction, but I never seen that as “That’s the way I am”, I made sure I have planned on how to get there and that person I have called to meet me outside and take down the directions ahead of time.
I have not always been reliable and I have taken days off from working because I just didn’t feel like going in and because I went out the night before, but never made me feel good. So I learned that if I want to be seen as being reliable I have to lighten up and just do that.
Taking time to be with yourself is important and I have booked holidays when working, and not gonna anywhere as such but to have a break and time for myself. I would when I took up running, had set time on a day off to do so, if I couldn’t do any in the week when working, and its just making time to be you and the world, gone up to London to run, and setting a date with myself. It makes such a difference.
So give yourself a break and this valentines give yourself love aswell as others.
