What I Did To Finally Make Myself Feel Happier

Depression sucks and I know how hard it is to help raise yourself up but I have done it and I think anyone else can if they have the drive in them to want to change. As well as seeking medical help, here are some of the things that I did (or stopped doing) that helped me start to get out of the depressive haze and back into my light again. I still have down days or weeks but often I notice that it’s because I haven’t stuck to one of the following, when I am back in line with each of these again I feel so much better. So here is how to make yourself feel happier.

Why It Has Taken You So Long To Get Started On Your Goal

I know we have all had that feeling when we think to ourselves, “Why didn’t I do this sooner, I would be so much further forward if I had”. Now I can tell you straight away that you should not focus on this, forget what you have or haven’t achieved and think about what you can do now in order to build you future. And anyway, a lot of the time when we tell ourselves this, we still don’t begin to achieve our goals. So if we can figure out why it took you so long to get started, then you can see how you can think differently now and actually get started

How To Find Connection When You Don't Have Friends

If, like me, you consider yourself to be a bit of a loner or you do have friends but they just don’t seem to get you on that deeper level then you may be craving some connection with others.

Sacrifices I Have Had To Make for My Goals

The reason that not everyone can hit their goals is because many people are not willing to make the sacrifices that are needed in order to work towards them. If hitting our goals was easy, we all would have done it by now. The reality is that when you have a big goal in front of you, you are going to have to say no to things. If you take it seriously you have to actively work towards it every day. If you goal is not your number one priority then your time is going to be taken up by something else, not the work you need to do.

How To Be Creative When You Don't Know What to Create

I never thought of myself as a creative person. I always thought of myself as more logical. I was never particularly good at art, nor skilled in any instrument, I was an average writer and I certainly never made anything for someone that would be good enough to sell or even gift. But what I have realised recently is that I am a creative. I do love creating things, so what was it that held me back for so long and made me think that I wasn’t? Maybe it was down to the fact that I didn’t have this clear cut creative outlet that I though you were supposed to have. Any way, here is how to be creative when you don’t know what to create.

Mindset Shifts You Need to Make to Achieve Your Goals

If you keep starting off the year working towards your goals to only give up or get off track a few weeks down the line then there may be something wrong with the mindset you are taking with you into the journey. I do believe that in order for us to achieve our goals we have to become the person that has already achieved them. I wrote a post about this concept, if you want to delve deeper read it here.

How To Cure Fear (Without Giving Up)

After reading Melissa Ambrosini’s book Mastering Your Mean Girl (buy it here.) I very much believe that everything we do in life is through love or fear. Now I don’t want to get too deep into this so definitely read her book if you want to learn more on this concept. But it opened my eyes about how many things I do, or don’t do because of fear. My word of the year for 2019 is Brave and because of this I wanted to get deeper into how I am now looking at fear and the cure I have found for it. So keep reading to find out how to cure fear.

Why Time-Keeping is Important to Succeed (& Be Taken Seriously)

I work in an office and every morning I ensure that I get into the office before my start time. Partly because I like to take some time to chill and get updated on the news before I start working but also because I want to make a good impression. I find it so irritating when I see people rocking up five minutes past, even twenty minutes pas their start time every single day. Some of these people will often stay late however I don’t think it is fair to pick and choose your working hours just because your start time wasn’t a priority for you.

Imposter Syndrome (Why It's Ok and How To Move Past It)

Today I wanted to share my thoughts on imposter syndrome. I have heard a lot of people discussing this lately and it looks like it is a common theme among entrepeneurs and women just trying to develop themselves. If you don’t know, Imposter Syndrome is that feeling when you feel like you aren’t good enough, like you aren’t qualified enough to help people. Jodie Foster once said, “‘When I won the Oscar, I thought it was a fluke. I thought everybody would find out, and they’d take it back.”. This shows that even when we are recognised for our achievements we can feel like a mistake has been made or we are not worthy. Even celebrities!

Why You Need to Reward Yourself (Even For The Little Things)

We are the first ones to beat ourselves up if we make a mistake. Even a tiny mistake. But what do we do when we hit our little wins? Well sometimes, we beat ourselves up still because maybe we didn’t think the win was good enough and we should have achieved more, but at the very most, we just move forward onto the next stepping stone towards our goal. We don’t allow ourselves to feel good about this little victory before heading onto the next. I think it is about time that we reward ourselves for even the smallest things, here is why.
