I am very excited, you know, website’s take time to update. Not only that, but I have so many ideas and this year, it’s all about change for me. I am growing too.

I am excited because this year, I am writing for me. I used to love being a freelance business writer and author and now still an author that writes more and more each day. I am now an online trainer. I feel with my extensive experience in writing, especially freelance business writing to earn an income! To writing and publishing eBooks, to blog writing, glamourous fashion, interior design, job seeking and more, that my online courses give you what I know in the easiest way possible for you to transform your life and start on a new and exciting path.

In doing so, I have updated my website to transition from freelance writer to online trainer. I love to help others and my time is better used in helping people with step by step instructions on how to reach their desired destination. Let me help you get where you want to go.

View my current list of online courses (which are always growing too, so make sure you check back for more!)

Also be sure to follow me on Facebook for the latest updates on everything I love to write about.

Plus, this year, I have a lot more to share with you. Click this new section that lists all of my blogs on a wide variety of topics, that I love to talk / write about.

When enough is enough …

you-are-enough

I am a huge motivator addict. I love to get motivated, I love to inspire others. I love to read about success stories and dream big.

There is something though that has been bothering me and it took me some time to work at what it is …

I discovered that, when reading quotes like, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~ Albert Einstein, are fantastic to inspire those to push harder and bigger to achieve your desired result, but sometimes, what we have right now (and by this I don’t mean materialistic items, I mean in terms of where we are in our dream chasing journey), is enough.

For the last 9 months I have been pushing myself to get out there and really go for my big goals in life, I ended up losing sight of the goal and instead focused on a step of the goal, but forgot what it was I was really seeking. The step was part of it, but I turned it into the entire aspect. I became stressed out, angry, frustrated. I forgot what it was like to play, have fun and live freely, which is always my end desired result – to be free to explore my creativity.

What I completely forgot in the process was, I don’t have to change anything if I don’t want things to change. In other words, if I am satisfied with the progress I am making at this time, then I can continue the path I am on, instead of stressing to do more, be more and try to think of another way.

I told my friend this, who responded with, ‘Once you realise at this, you receive a sense of calm’ and I do. I feel a lot more happier and I really appreciate what I am achieving at this moment.

It’s hard to describe but instead of trying to push forth to reach the 100th step to my desired goal, right now, I am hanging around the 65th step, because I want to and for me it works. It makes me happy. Anymore, at this stage in my life, is too forced and makes my life unbalanced, making me not happy. Why would I want to destroy everything I have worked hard for, have passion for, due to wanting haste in my goal? This is a journey, a life journey and I see that now. I am excited to be where I am, I am excited to still seek opportunities, grow and challenge myself, at my pace. I feel a whole lot calmer, happier and more creative than ever.

I want to stress the point that this doesn’t mean I am giving up, I am simply changing my mindset that I can actually enjoy the journey as well as all aspects of my life, by appreciating where I am now and how ‘enough’ it is for me.

Are you happy with your current progress towards your goal? I would like to hear your thoughts.

Dreams … is it worth the leap?

I wonder what my life would be like if I did not have my dreams to hold onto. To wish upon the stars every night? 

Wait! I know exactly what it would be like. It was my life years ago. When the world sucked me in and left me drained. Each day felt boring and lifeless. It depressed me to no end. Of course I tried very hard to make peace with the unsatisfactory living. This is all life can be. This is my life. Image

I was so wrong!! And with the death of my grandparents, their lives stolen from cancer and the birth of my precious first born son, I knew this was my chance. This is my moment in life, where if I don’t go after what makes my heart sing then I never will.

We all get that moment/chance in life. Take it. Grab it with both hands. Don’t over question it. Do not fear it. Embrace it. Make it all that is. 

Your life will change dramatically. The wind will pick you up and fly you to the touch the heavens above the sky. 

Don’t waste another day waiting. Waiting for something to change your life. You have to change it.

When change comes knocking …

Sometimes in life, future anticipated events can appear daunting. You know change is knocking on your door. But you don’t want to answer. Not because your afraid, but because you are happy with your current way of living. You are comfortable.

Personally the bigger the fight I place on change, the longer it takes me to settle into the new lifestyle. Generally, I love change. I love when I can explore new horizons, let my ideas run wild. I get all giddy inside. There have only been one or two major life changes that I felt were forced upon me with a gust of speed. I fought for a long period with this change, not willing to accept it. But from those changes I know that I wouldn’t have met the people I was intended to meet to make my life whole, or experienced those emotions that I needed to feel in order for me to find out more about me and what I want from life.

So although I know change is about to occur quite forcefully in my life in the next few weeks. I also know that if I put my worrying thoughts aside and focus on what is happening right now, at this very moment in my life. Then the meaning I have put towards that major life change, dimmers quietly in the background. And when the time comes, when I am forced to face it, I know that the change may appear unforgiving at first, but once I work out my boundaries, and push my elbows on the edges to test its strength, that I will soon have no more to worry about. And it will be just like another day in my life. I will still be me. I will still have the same dreams. I will still strive for living the life I want.

And I ask that you do the same when your big life change sticks its head up from the lovely enjoyable life you were living. Because change is what grows us and makes us who we are. You are a strong human being. You can achieve anything and you can be pushed and prodded all the way till you get to your destination. Hold your head high and know that you can do it.

And you will.
