Saturday Motivation..

I once heard that motivation is like bathing we need to do it daily.

The video below is a great testimony to staying motivated and on track, what motivates you?

Is your dream big enough to allow you to have a motive to take action?

Have a great weekend

It’s Not Over Until I Win

When is it really over?
Oftentimes we get knocked down, we through dark periods in our life.
What do you do when you fall down?
What do you do when you feel like you have lost?
When I’m feeling down I listen to motivational videos like this one.

It’s not over until I win….

My Pet My Love

Our pets…they are loving, playful, loyal, cute and last, but not least, so freakin adorable. 🙈You got to love them. But not everyone has a pet, and I know why now…

I grew up very close of my grandparent’s house and they had it all there: dogs, cats, sheep, cows, pigs, goats, chicken, ducks, goose, turkeys, you name it. 🙊I used to spend my summer breaks at their house a lot, and being a kid, you just love chasing them all lol. 🏃🏽‍♀️

I used to feed and care for them, because my grandparents wanted to teach me to be responsible, which actually worked, I felt like I was doing something big when I was feeding them and taking them for a stroll. 👱🏼‍♀️

Had my first pet dog when I was 10. Her name was Lucky, a German Shepard. We were best friends for a few years, but she got really sick and I’ve lost her.

Must have been the most painful experience of my childhood. 😪 Mum and dad didn’t get me any other dog after, just to protect me and my broken heart, we did have parrots and my sister used to bring in all the stray cats she found in the street, to my mum’s horror😡 lol.

We never got to keep any of the kittens, my mum doesn’t really like cats. 😬

Leaving my parents’ s house to go to university when I was 19, moving houses a lot as a student, and then living in different cities, before I settle down in my last flat, never had the chance to have another pet.

I have always thought that if you are at work all day, it’s best not to leave your pet alone for so long.

Moving in with my partner Roy, just 2 years ago, in his flat, I discovered his cat, Smudge. Smudge is a black female cat, 15 years old and with a very big personality. 😼

Me and Smudge started off on the wrong foot, for sure. We are 2 females fighting for the same territory and the same man, considering that she has been around my Roy since she was a kitten.😝

Took about a whole year of living together, with lots of spitting, hissing, biting and scratching, before we made peace. I have never been a cat person, so most days I just wanted to throw her out. 😅

Takes a lot of love, patience and hard work to live with a cat, especially one with Smudge’s personality. 😼

Because she was always a house cat, Smudge is very sensitive to outside flees, bugs and all sort of creatures. She got very ill last year on Easter, when I was home alone.

She had no food or water for almost 24 h, was very poorly, she looked so frail and weak. I had to do something, so I called the vet.

I took her in to the Hospital, (which nowadays cost a fortune), they had to run all sorts of tests on her and keep her overnight as it looked like a food poisoning and she needed the drip.

The vet was very skeptical she will make it, but did her very best. 👩🏻‍⚕️

I cried that night, the house was so empty without her running around everywhere, I realized that I would miss her terribly if she would go, I realized I loved her.

So I promised myself to be her friend if she will make it. We took her home the next day, she was better, but still frail.

She saw me cry for her, I kissed her all evening and held her tight. Since that day, we are the best friends ever.

We learned to live with each other, share the house and Roy, play, argue, but mostly love each other. 🙎🏻‍♀️❤️🐈

My cat acts like a dog lol, she brings me her toys over when she wants to play, she comes running when I call her, she rolls and slides on the carpet all the time, she is amazing.

I even taught her Romanian 🤠

My story has a happy ending, because Smudge is family now, she taught me to love, she taught me to play and laugh, she made me clean the house every day ( ohhh the hair 🙀) and she reminded me that a pet only has you, you are their whole world.

So, please take care of your pets, they are amazing. And if you don’t have one, adopt one, you’ll make them happy for life. If I can do it, so can you. 🙋🏼‍♀️👍🏻❤️

Thoughts become things


Many people were first introduced to the Law of Attraction was ‘The Secret’, that was a decent film but was skirting around the real Secret.

When thinking of the law of attraction we often think of getting fast cars private jets a big house etc etc etc..

While these things are of course nice it kind of misses the point of it all, I once read the thoughts become things, faith can move mountains we have all these things, but what if thoughts become feelings before they become things?

That would require you to know how it would feel to have nice cars and jets and the such, but what if it’s not about the material things?

If you look around you will see that feelings draw people, situations,, and things to you that give you more of the same feelings, feelings of bliss attract to you things that make you feel blissful and vis versa.

Don’t believe me? cast your mind back to how you felt when you couldn’t get your car started or you missed your train, didn’t it start off a chain of events that more than likely ruined your morning or even your day.

Now do the same again when you were blissfully happy, remember how everything was going your way that day.


Stay grateful

Personal Development

Zig Ziglar often said that Self Development is like bathing, if you don’t do it daily you start to stink.

What do you do daily to develop yourself?

Personally, I love to read and listen to audios, the subjects I love to learn are on business strategy, law of attraction, people skills, sales skills and learning how learn differently (Photo Reading TM is a prime example)

Over the years I have grown a substantial library and a large catalogue of audios to dip in to as the mood takes me.

If you are not a reader, there a tons of free or for pennies audio books out there, and YouTube for Videos on personal development and motivation.

Feeding your mind is so important, we all have that little voice inside our head, it has been there since the dawn of civilisation and has on many occasions saved us from being food for Saber Toothed Tigers and the such, and to some degree it helps us in the odd circumstances today.

In our modern era the threats have all but disappeared, but the voice is still there looking out for us, giving us reasons to doubt our decisions.

How do we silence it? Quite simply we can’t, what we can do though is to train it by reading positive books and uplifting audios we quiet the voice and allow it to do the job it is there for, alert us of threats.

Now this being said, if you are not looking to develop yourself no problem at all, let your voice run free for a while and I will see you down the book store in a few months.

We all know people that are so negative that if you put them in to a dark room they would develop, don’t be one of them.

My Fitness Journey

Before first time back
Me and fitness…😂😂😂. I have always admired people that can do it, can go to the gym 3, 4 times a week or more, eat healthy, so called “chicken salad” folks, don’t drink alcohol, all the fit lifestyle but I have never dreamed of becoming one.
Let’s say I never needed to when I was in my twenties, I could eat anything I wanted whenever I wanted and was still 48kg. But when you turn 30, the story completely changes and your body with it. 🧐
The breakthrough happened when I put on 10kg in a few months, just because I have discovered I had Graves disease, which is a form of thyroid insufficiency, meaning I need steroids to keep my thyroid functioning properly. I have heard before of overweight people that blamed the thyroid for their shape. It is all nonsense! I can say that, because I have this thyroid problem for 10 years now, I have been and still am under treatment and medical supervision, I have been both dieting and eating normal all these years and YOU can control your weight if you are aware of your carbs and sugars intake! 👍
I used to run few days a week when I was back home, or just go to classes a few times, done Zumba, Capoeira, Kangoo Jumps, it was all fun, was doing it just to have more energy, I was getting close to 35 and wanted to keep a bit of left over shape from my twenties. 😃
And then I came to London. 🤩 I used to be a size 8, and got to a size 12 in just a few years. Why?! Because I stopped exercising, changed doctors and treatments for my thyroid and most of all, started experiencing the English food. I am not blaming anyone for it, just myself, the food is nice and you just feel like you are on vacation and you have to try it all, you feel like a tourist here lol 😝
Another major factor for losing my shape is that I love baking too and had to try and bake all the new British cakes. One of my favorites shows is Bake off still, I have recorded all the series. 😂
But after I quit smoking, I replaced the cigarettes with candy 🍭 and something had to change, because I was tired all the time, no energy, lack or sleep, 😴was moody all the time, and just felt drained and knackered most days. So had to get a gym contract and The Venue in Borehamwood turned out to be the perfect choice. 🏋
Started with a gym program and Zumba once a week, less carbs and sugar. All great, easy start, things were going in the right direction, lost 4 cm in just a month, but didn’t realized I had developed Plantar fasciitis, which is a very sharp pain in the arch of your foot.  Had to go to see my GP and was told I will need to rest my foot, so no going to the gym more than twice a week, and stretching few times a day, all this should make it all better in a few weeks👨. That was almost a month ago, and nothing changed, the pain is still there🤕, getting worse actually, although my gym trainer, Curtis changed my exercises to rest my foot, focusing on weights more and abdominal work, I’ve done my daily stretching,I got a new pair of trainers with better arch support and I have given up the Zumba class on Sunday for a while now. Next step is seeing a chiropractor for some massage and correction, hopefully that will work.
My point on this is I will not give up on going to the gym 3, 4 times a week, although with a changed routine that will not make the pain worse, and trust me, the pain can be too much at times. But I cannot stop now. I am starting to love my shape again 💪and I got my energy and joy back too. 👫
So if you are thinking in starting a new, healthier lifestyle, go for it, but be careful with this Plantar fasciitis. Everything else feels great 💃.And as I always say, if I can do it, so can you! 💕🙋
