You Are The Creative!!

πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ Happy Magic Monday My Fabulous Ones πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ

Have you ever felt rebellious? That you want to rip up the rule book? Well if your anything like me the answer would be yes, but making a noise seem hugely frightening. Doing something that you fear means you should do it all the more! There is no right way do things (only when making tea-water before milk guys there is no other way πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰). Seriously though how you do things should only feel right for you.

This Monday start making your happiness a priority πŸŒˆπŸ˜˜πŸ’œπŸŒˆβœ¨

Girls Just Want To Have Fun!!!

Hello Reader,

How long has it been since posting something in β€˜Let’s Thrive’? Only in like forever ago! I know the last couple of these posts have started like this, but you have not been far from my thoughts! Today I just want to talk about having a little fun!!

People that know me well, will know that I love to laugh lots and seek enjoyment wherever I can. A few months back, some of these lovely humans organized an afternoon to play the real life β€˜Where’s Wally?’ as well as β€˜Where’s the Unicorn?’ and β€˜Where’s the clown?’ We all had to wear some snazzy head gear and go and hide in a park. This time was filled with lots of laughter, good vibes and FUN! Moments like these are just as, if not more, important than adult life that sometimes can get a little much! While we there enjoying as my dear friend would say ”getting Ninja” sneaking behind trees and running to dodge our spies, we did get some strange looks at our head gear while other just laughed with us. The sad thing is the having fun and letting your inner child take control for a while, gets overlooked and the very idea of moving away from the β€˜altogether woman’ that people see you as, or this persona that you put out into the world is terrifying; letting yourself been seen in another light sometimes can the hardest thing you can do- you have even less control than you did, or thought you did, before.

But, does it ever get boring? Does staying in your beautifully arranged, clean cut box ever grow tiresome? Do you ever yearn to mess up sometimes, so that you can take off and be free?
We make ourselves feel pressure and that we ought to have a handle on things all of the time. The truth is though we don’t. We think we do, but we don’t. Taking everything so seriously takes away possibility, takes away that gap between you and the thing that you are obsessing over. The gap needed to feel you! I am a self-confessed over thinker and at times it can get in the way and you guessed it, stops all this fun that could happen

I am writing this to say to you, and to remind myself, to get adventurous, get messy and be free. Life is way too short to be unhappy, to carry unwanted weight, to only let the fun you wish you were having to live out in your mind. Start now, even if it means splashing in a puddle when’s no one looking, watching a clip of your favourite comedian, singing one of you favourite guilty pleasures or trying…. to walking like a penguin (dude, its fun!).

I hope you will let yourself have a little more fun and when doing so not judge yourself for it. I would love to know how you will get in touch with your inner child!

All my love XX

Spread Kindness

πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ Happy Magic Monday My Fabulous Ones πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ As we enter autumn and it gets a little colder (sitting here in my woolies) we can forget how this season can also have an impact on our mental health – this time of year can be particularly triggering for people that suffer with their mental health so it’s really important that we are all aware of this ✨ In September 2016 something happened that I never thought could happen. My gorgeous sister had seemed β€˜a bit down β€˜ for some time but I never knew the extent or that it would turn out that she would be diagnosed with depression. No one would have known that behind her smile and the rainbows she adorns herself in that she was suffering – not even me and I live with her.

It is so important that we really make sure if the people around us are actually okay. It is only when people get talking and ending stigmas, that the importance of mental health can be kept alive. Mairead describes living with depression as like β€˜living in a body with a mind that’s trying to die.’ No one should have to face feelings like this alone.

One thing we can all do is practice kindness, smile at strangers and say kind words, remind the loved ones in your life why they are so special, say and send kind messages to people you care about. If you think something lovely about someone why don’t you tell them? So this magic Monday let’s celebrate kindness ✨ If you are struggling right now please talk to someone, there are also so many wonderful communities where you can seek help such as @mindcharity and @mh_stories_ is also a wonderful online platform where you can find support 😘 Thank you @mermaiidmairead for allowing me to share your story 🌈❀️

This Monday allow yourself just to breathe and go with your heart. This quote is taken from my latest blog post β€˜Pulling Up (Rainbow) Socks’ . It’s about doing whatever is right for you and not being afraid of not being a β€˜go getter β€˜ all the time. Lose yourself in something new or familiar just don’t fear it πŸ’œπŸŒˆπŸ’œ

Living Dreams

πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ Happy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ

There is nothing more magic in the world when I see one of my dearest thrive, dare and go out of their comfort zone and realises their abilities; it genuinely makes my heart happy. My beloved sister, Mairead- @mermaiidmairead– has gone from strength to strength over the past year. She turned hobby into a passion and then into a business.

Mairead had worked so incredibly hard on @thewanderingmermaids. The jewellery she makes is full of colour, magic and radiates happiness and at the same time brings her so much joy-even when pulling a very late night shift ! @thewanderingmermaids had a very first pop up yesterday and my word she did herself proud! !

@thewanderingmermaids have just creations of a brand new line and their are so beautiful!!

Mairead shows just what you can do with a courageous heart and with this she inspires me so much πŸ’œπŸ’“πŸŒˆπŸ’œ Who makes you be your best self?

Just Believe!!

This is a take back to a few years ago in Disneyland Paris; a place where dreams do come true! I know that life is not a Disney film and things don’t always go to plan, but there is always something to learn. These things either set us on track or allow us to create a completely new path, and with this we know better what it is that we want. If you struggling today, let youself believe in something better and start living that life πŸ’œπŸŒˆπŸ’“πŸ’œ

You Can!!

Meet Mr Cactus (totally originally name I know…don’t get me started on the names I had for my bears as a child…okay one name was Ted). A cactus symbolises endurance and resillance and is a reminder to a person of how strong they are. If you are struggling today, know that you can get through this and the light WILL shine again πŸ’œπŸ’“πŸ’œ
