Wonderful Things | Motivational Monday | 2017 #5


Oh Hai, 

As I write this I'm making lists and packing for an adventure this week. So, merry Monday! A brand new week to do something amazing! I'm excited for this one. On Wednesday we fly to Orlando, Florida for a trip to Disney World, my favourite place on earth. 



I saw this quote on Pinterest and knew it was perfect for this week. Here's why-

Exactly one year ago my life was very, very different. I was just starting a new relationship that wasn't going to last very long, I was trudging through with a horrible divorce, I felt burnt out professionally and I worried constantly about my Daughter. I was so highly strung that every little thing concerned me and I would lay awake fretting for the future. I never felt safe. 

Today life is much changed. My legal business is done and dusted, my heart is healed, I'm buzzing with creative ideas, I feel confident and calm about my Daughter and I'm in a happy, healthy, stable relationship with a good man. 

I didn't do anything profound or make any huge changes in 2016, I just let time and God do it's thing and wonderful things unfolded. I know this sounds severe but truly, a few years ago I didn't think I would ever find this sort of joy and yet, here I am, sitting on my candy pink sofa in a house I feel safe in, blogging about my beautiful life. 

If you are in a place where you feel like things are grim or you can't see a way it could ever be happy, have faith. I didn't think it would happen and it has. It will happen to you. You just have to wait and be open and then one day, it will be there. 

Sending anyone that needs them great big giant hugs!

Things are going to get very Disney on the blog for the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes pealed for that and I'll see you soon!

Toodlepip!

  1. Very true. In 2015 I experienced the closest thing to depression I've ever been through and wasn't sure I was ever going to be able to enjoy my future (I was in my final year of school at the time) but now I have returned to my normal self and am enjoying life more than ever. It just takes time!

  2. Don't sell yourself short! You hardly just sat back waiting for good things to happen to you. You created experiences that allowed you to make the most of the situation -- traveling, making new friends and doing the things that at the moment made you happiest. Seeing how you waded through the hard times like a champ was really inspiring. Thank you, Louise! And obviously I am SOOOOO happy that you're in a better place now :) Drive down to Fort Lauderdale while you're in Florida and I'll buy you some champagne so we can toast to 2017 being a wilde-ly awesome year! ;)

  3. Thanks Louise I'm currently going through a really difficult patch in life which feels like it's never going to get better and constantly just gets worse. It's been this way since June 2015 when my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer which advanced very quickly and he sadly passed away in September that year. Then in may 2016 just as I was getting on my feet again I twisted my knee which now refuses to get better. I've been off work since then and I am now at a point where I'm having to give up my career, profession, as a children's intensive care nurse as I just can't find a job in nursing that doesn't require legs that aren't in constant pain. You provide hope things are going to get better soon. I hope so. I hadn't realised until recently how much everything has affected me, but something a colleague said made me realise my whole personality has changed and not in a way I would like. I've gone from the person who was always happy, smiling, cheerful. Now I'm just sad, stressed and worried. I had actually forgotten I used to be that happy person. Thanks for the inspiration xxx

  6. I had a pretty crap 2016, despite meeting some amazing people, I also had a crap start to 2017 (dumped 4 days in, and my hamster passed away 2 weeks later) but now I'm keeping my head high and just letting things play out while I work my butt off at uni and I'm putting more time and effort into my blog!

  11. I love this. 2016 was the year that went horribly wrong for me and there's been so many times when I've thought things weren't ever going to get better. I've still got a huuuge way to go but over time things have gradually eased up and I feel like I'm starting to get a grip on things again. We've just got to remind ourselves that things WILL get better! <3 xxx

  17. My life is devastated! I’m going through hell right now or from the past one month.One month ago,i broke up with my bf.We both were completely in love.But i started having some issues with myself.My mood swings were a lot to handle for him an that point i just felt the need to break up and so i did.And i hurt him to the core which i never wanted to.He kept on begging me but i didn’t hear.Later on he started avoiding me and kind of did everything as you said in your video.it felt bad.I always loved him but i had to break up.I regret breaking up so much.But after that he said no to me.He said he’ll never come back as he cannot put faith in me.I have tried my level best but he is adamant that he cannot trust me.Even though after i realised what i did.I changed myself completely.I dealt with my mood swings and now i don’t get any.He cannot trust me.what should i do?I love himand he does too but he says he don’t have that much courage to come back. one day in my office going through the internet i saw a post of a lady giving testimony on how she got her husband back,i also come across a blog site on how to reunite and get your ex back with a love spell it was really amazing to see this so i copy his email id on http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ i explain my situation to him and gave him all the details he requested from me, he give me 3 days assurance that my boyfriend will come back after the spell i was so overwal to hear that so i just keep calm and follow up his order coz i really love my boyfriend and want him back. on the third day after the spell as he promise me, my ex call me also show up in my office begging me to forgive him and accept him back with out no delay, i lift him up with a kiss and was so very happy to have him back all my happiness was from Dr happy he is indeed a true man a father and a god sent. plz contact Dr happy on his email id direct at happylovespell2@gmail.com or call his mobile number on +2348133873774

  18. Excellent and professional investigative services. I hired him (CYBERPHONEHACKER@GMAIL.COM) for a very private and difficult matter of hacking my spouse phone, and he far exceeded my expectations. He helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs etc) I needed faster and cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in which he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. He is a fantastic investigator and a great person and
    if you have a dishonest partner don’t hesitate to send him a mail Contact: CYBERPHONEHACKER@GMAIL.COM or +1 916 302 2234
