Making the tea. When you feel the fear!

Making the tea. When you feel the fear! Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    You are arrested by your own fears.  You are the only one stopping you. "Because I might get laughed at!" "Because I might get it wrong!" Sound familiar?  If you never try, you’ll never know. You could be the best.  But a reluctance to face what you could be great at is, of course, a holdback.  If you’re strong enough to not want regrets, you need to let go of your fears. Though people may laugh at the start, when it becomes your norm, people who appreciate you will laugh at them!  Just because someone doesn’t believe in something, it doesn’t mean it’s wrong for you.  My parents are very protective of me and won’t even let me make a cup of tea! Crazy I know: they are on

Don't regret

Don't regret Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    'I don’t regret anything I have done or anyone I met. There was a reason for every one – either they’re long lasting friends or they’re to teach me about distance or to show me that holding onto something isn’t worth it. I only regret the time I wasted not making the most of every moment – when, at uni, I used to stay in every night – not making anything happen when I could have. You never know what could happen. Don’t waste it. You only get one chance. So go be free. No one has the right to tell you how to live. I know the future may appear dismal right now, but I promise somewhere there is a star waiting to shine above you. In life, there are 3 things you need: A wishbone; A backbone; A funny

You Are Unique - It Is Time To Be Proud!

You Are Unique - It Is Time To Be Proud! Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    I was told once that I was really strong because I just don’t care do I?  I do care if you’re important to me. But if it’s a once in a lifetime experience or if I’ll never see the people from a certain situation again I don’t.  Life is too short to worry about what people think of you.  It doesn’t matter what people think of you, as long as you’re happy. When your happiness shines through they can grimace all they like, but they won’t be able to take away your experience. And that’s what life’s all about, experiencing things.  Although it may be a risk, you’ve got to try it else you never know if it’ll work out. And this involves making mistakes too. Lots of them. Everybody makes them.  At

Creating Rainbows

Creating Rainbows Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's  first video on  YouTube    My theory on life – It has to rain a lot in a life before the sun pokes its head through the clouds. There’s no saying how long the rain could last for or how many clouds will gather above you. Life is unpredictable But please remember, beautiful things blossom from the rain and they take time to do this, so don’t think you’re losing time. You are right where you need to be at this moment in time. The rain might last for a day, a week, a month, a few months, a year or a few (etc.) but the sun will rise again, and you’ll realise that everything that has happened to you in your life has been leading up to this moment. So learn to dance in the rain. It’s the best thing about the rain. And learning to hurdle over thin

Recover Your Balance - on being inspired

This is an extract from a brilliant post by coach Ann Lewis - you can read the rest at the link below and I would recommend it! Ann is author of  Recover Your Balance: How To Bounce Back From Bad Times at Work' (Paperback - Mar ...  http://amzn.to/fkPVl "I recently signed up to Nick Williams’ brilliant Inspired Entrepreneur site and have been catching up with a treasure trove of inspirational podcasts from the past couple of years. They’re recordings of talks given in London by Nick and by invited guests. One ritual that always happens is a request that all participants talk to someone they’ve not met about something that has inspired them that day. That set me thinking. It’s not always easy to find inspiration when you’re off balance. Often you go into survival mode, managing to keep going through a day at a time with not much sense of anything outside the immediate pain. Yet regular inspiration – someone’s achievement, glorious light on a landscape, the fledging of birds
