Soon we will be ending this year 2021 and yes there were challenging moments but here I am looking after my son in the warm feeling nostalgic.
There have been changes like my son needing to go to a new school, going through another lock down and me spending time in a mental health hospital yet here I am after returning doing the school run this year and my son is off for the Christmas holidays and my son is the love of my life and enjoying having mother and son time.
My blogs especially this one has had terrific feedback and I feel so blessed because of having 5,000 views and same with my blog https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com I received 1,000 likes, again I 0feel blessed, so thank you.
All the feedback has been wonderful and more new blogs to come.
I have written more books on amazon.com under Carrie Challoner, Carrie Lee Holmes and Carrie Holmes, and proud of them and hope I have inspired you being my audience with the follows I have had.
I love reaching out via my books and blogs and in this year I restarted my filming for my YouTube channels and now have three, typicallondongal, mystylewayofliving and carrieseducationalyoutube
So been a good year really and new things on the horizon for next year too.
It is almost the end of another year and before you know it we will be in 2022, and it is getting to the time where I will set my goals for the year to follow 2021 and so I will be checking through mine and creating new ones.
I will be creating printables to help you set goals too.
See Printables I have made for your happy journal, I have put together these for you to use how ever way you wish.
Hello and welcome! I am going to make sure I blog once or twice a week on this site, but with the school run, not be possible and so if you have been waiting for a new blog on this site, I apologise.
So topic of blog. How do you make people listen when they don’t want to hear?
How many of us have had this experience?
I know it can be a never ending battle, but if they aren’t willing to see things on your point of view, often they never will, so the ball is still in your court on that.
How important is it to have these people still in your life? You need to ask, as can you move away from them?
That is not always possible, but actions can speak wonders.
What do they bring you when you see them? There are people who can be super jealous which leads them to resent everything you say and just want to argue and what they seeing is that. You being happy reflects on them, when no they just using you as an excuse so if they don’t want to hear you, then don’t give them the time. Say to them “If you aren’t willing to listen then we can’t carry on as me being here is not making you happy and you want me to be, so lets talk or move on” this way you are still giving them choice without taking full control over them, but gives them something to think about.
I hate it when it feels like a tug of war, as then I end up not wanting to speak to them and there story has to be worse than yours and it becomes a battle of “Who’s story is the most important” and it should be equal. They listen to you and you listen to them.
Are we made on this planet to get on with everyone? In an ideal world perhaps but not realistically impossible, but you can still be polite rather than hostile and just keeping distant if you can’t move away from them completely.
So what are your thoughts? You can leave a comment below.

Hello! It is Friday and Day 8 of my 30 day blog challenge where I will post a blog a day for 30 days on this site.
In this blog post I am writing about Building a career and developing your life, and there are some real simple ways for doing this.
To set standards for yourself. Listen to critics and use it to help you be stronger and use it to build not knock you down
If you can find a good mentor to help you work towards a career. I am currently working with a Career Specialised to help me find work in an industry that I have been officially wanting to work in and is a great way to help you towards a job you have always wanted
If you are working in a industry that you don’t feel happy about anymore. This means time for a change. Update your life by following your dreams and aspirations and if it means doing some courses towards it then do so and get in touch with mental health specialists who can help get your life back on track
Develop a team to help you. My Social worker has been the one who has introduced me to a career specialised as mentioned above and so feel that I have once again a good team of people helping me and with working in Mental health being in a hospital is going to teach me a whole lot more.
Work through challenges but never use them to hold you back. As with standards set yourself personal goals and targets and believe in yourself. As soon as you here self criticism acknowlege and then go through it but then write dowm the pros to make those challenges be addressed and then worked towards the biggest goals you have set.
It is all about keeping life Simple but full of more good things and meeting new people and forever expanding yourself.
Hello and welcome to Day 7 where I am posting everyday for 30 days (so the entire month) on this site and thank you for the likes I have received so far it really means the world to me.
So, What a day is like for me? Well I do a Day in a life videos on Friday to Sunday, or just Saturday sometimes, and in the week Tuesday’s and Wednesdays.
I start between 6:30 to 8am to get my first cup of tea of the day along with some breakfast. Being a writer I do have various things to do each day and soon i will be doing other work whilst I keep writing my books, blogs, creating Youtube videos and online courses. Check out my site: https://carrieseducationnetwork.thinkific.com/
Blog and book writing is hardwork as coming up with new ideas is tricky yet I have done it and now on this site alone I have over 100 followers and it keeps me on my toes but makes me see that what I am trying to achieve with my writing, is happening.
It has taken a long time, but for me it is a lot of conmunity based and I love being part of the Blog and Book writing world.
I will drink Caffienated drinks as I feel it helps me take a break and keeps me from feeling sleepy throughout the day. I will have a snack or two, but moderately and I will fit in some exercise and today I wrote some notes whilst sitting in the park.
I will take a break from posting any blogs live and that is on Sundays, and Mondays and Thursdays I use this time not filming day in a life videos use it to do some Admin, like updating my schedule as I like to block schedule my days. I hope to be able to work in the local library at some point again or in a coffee shop which has good Wifi.
I always go for a walk and do errands, I will clean my work base and look after my room, and then wind down and swtich off from the day.
It can be so easy to work, work and work, but then it can become like a chore which I avoid and so will do different things each week rather being repetitive keeping it fresh, but enjoying it at the same time.
So I hope this blog has been informative and more blogs to come as I continue my 30 day challenge.
Hello and happy Thursday! This is going to be my first blog of my 30 days challenge I have set for myself to write on this site everyday for 30 days.
So what do I want out of this challenge? More for my viewers and followers of this site to read and to give support to help people make a success of their life and out of rut, to help people change their mindset to getting things done and just by making one change in your life that can make huge difference.
Doing these challenges really helps me to see that I can do and what I can get done and how can I help my blogs grow along with my audience. That is how I see you guests and so I want to create content that touches your heart, your mind and soul and work together to have a better year and life.
How many of us was getting frustrated cause of Lockdown? I bet it was a lot and now we have to now crawl our way back to sanity and carry one our lives keeping our distance for a while, but carry on as if nothings happened and try to make sense of our lives again.
My blogs are in real time and I will never cover of the cracks in my life but learn from them to have a better mindset than ever before.
If you would like to read my EBooks available o Amazon then see them via this link:
Hello! I have often been a stress head and I would frantically worry. It would be of the worse case scenario that I’d think about and then it would often be when I put my head on my pillow to go to sleep, and yet stay awake from Stressing and worrying.
I remember watching Big Brother once when someone of the housemates was asked do they worry and they said no cause it’s a waste of energy and I feel that is true. I would worry about not worrying and feel it is my mind and body warning me of danger, but it is also by the influence too.
So the 1st destresser I give is have a morning, afternoon and evening ritual. So I will always have a cup of my favourite tea, Earl Grey and a good breakfast, along with playing some music and I used to watch some Youtube or when doing the school run me Henry and I would dance. In the afternoon having time to walk and explore and evenings a good dinner and some chill out time listening to music, reading a book or low level screen time catching up on some weekly TV.
The second distresser is arrange events to go to yearly or monthly to have things to look forward a throughout the year even including a holiday. We all need to get away from normality for a bit so doing different things each year or month helps to break up the weeks and months and have a date set.
We can be so hooked on existing rather than living that we all get desperate to have space and purity included so third tip is light a scented candle and read a book along with a cup of tea or hot chocolate with some favourite biscuits and again practice meditation or mindfulness. We all deserve a treat so go for it and never look back or be regretful as it is your mind saying “Make a change to everyday life”.
To feel on top of the world we have to make the effort to look after ourselves and to give ourselves 5 minutes or so to be just with our thoughts and mediation or mindfulness can help in this respect. It is about learning about what you need and so take 5 just to gain perspective and nuture yourself. Chat with those who make you feel on top of the world and are on your side. Take out negativity and just be with yourself.
So the fourth tip is, find an exercise routine to do. There are loads on Youtube that I have created a playlist for the ones I have found and want to try out. If you are paying to have Sky TV and Broadband then get your moneys worth and workout at home along with walking, running or taking part in a sport.
The fifth tip is to Take yourself out of a situation when you meet difficult people. When working in Customer service you had to be think skinned and when I was getting upset over some phone calls I moved over to the Chat and email team and it was the best move I made. It can be so hard to take yourself away in that kind of work, yet it paid well and didn’t want to leave so when I saw there was a need for another email Customer Service agent I applied and glad that I did. If you find you aren’t getting any benefit out of a job and start to withdraw yourself it means you need to change for something better. One reason why a lot of people take time off from work is due to Stress and worry.
So be good to yourself and never fear you aren’t alone in this world and can move onto better things to destress and be happy.
