Lifting your mood

Lifting your mood Are you feeling low and a bit down? Perhaps too many blue days are around right now? Here's something to help. We've been through such a lot. Really bad things are happening out there in the world and we're reading, hearing and watching all kinds of horrible things. Lots of us are worried about money about our health and about the health and wellbeing of those we love. So how do we raise our spirits. And how do we try to keep them up there, so that we can get out there and do the things we want to do do? Well here is what I try do every day of the week.  Every morning I write what a lot of people call Morning Pages. I write about 500 words in my journal about positive things that I really like.  I try to write about small things that I might see in a day that bring me joy. Sometimes I write about people that I care for or like and why I value them. Sometimes it's hard not to whinge but the point is to stay positive. So long as it's positive it do

e-Happiness 2 By Stephanie Carfrae 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 have a magic wand to whisk away all of your problems.  Heck if I did, I definitely wouldn't be in this predicament.  But I do have the power of words, which in the words of Dumbledore, are the most inexhaustible source of magic, both capable of inflicting injury and remedying it!  Celebrities are admirable because they are actors, dress in a particular way or are singers.  The people we regard as strong are people who act as though everything is OK, even and perhaps especially, when the world is falling down on them.  Singers are breaking the mould into acting nowadays, whether it’s just in music videos or like Jennifer Lopez, acting is where they made their name. And it seems e

You Are Amazing By Stephanie Carfrae 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 think you’re amazing,’ someone says to someone else, but it doesn’t matter who, because they’re all amazing really. People are amazing.’ An insightful quotation from David Nicholls in his amazing book One Day. And it’s so true.  Whether your wings are still forming, you’re still metamorphosing or your wings are fledging, or you’ve already taken flight, YOU ARE amazing.  Always believe that. Even when the world seems to have turned its back on you, there is a star somewhere shining for you. Always have the confidence to believe that. Because YOU ARE worth it.  Anybody who tells you that you aren’t are merely jealous because they want to be who you are, or they are pessimists.  When you know

My Belief By Stephanie Carfrae 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   When I find myself facing a task I don’t like or that I think will take a long time if I get involved.  I just imagine myself not being able to do that particular thing ever again. It helps me stop putting things off.   Having infinity to get things done is a nice idea but that’s all it can ever be because time is so precious. Life is unpredictable at the best of times.  After I’ve had a good time at an occasion, I just use that as inspiration to do what I need to.  Life is an unpredictable waiting game.  You never know what is coming next. Which is why it can be exciting.  When you’re going through a really hard time, it seems it will never improve. But there is always a ray of light somewhere. I
