New Year… Fresh Start 😊

New Year… Fresh Start 😊

New Year… Fresh Start 😊

So, after setting New Year intentions I thought about the best way to make space in my life for what matters, plus welcome in all the new and exciting things to come in 2016!Β  So I set about my Fresh Start.

My favourite way of doing this is by having a good declutter. To me this is great therapy. I don’t know about you but I seem to be clearer in my head when my environment is too!

It can be a very daunting and once in the middle of it all and think why on earth but push on. I love gathering things for friends, charity and Adam’s clothes are passed on to another little boy.

I put on my favourite music and begin by choosing one room at a time. Sometimes even saying to myself ‘I’m just gonna give it an hour’.Β  Taking a gradual approach I find, isn’t so over whelming.Β  Now my little Bliss office looks like My-Inspiration-Journal-Fresh-Start-My-Bliss-Officea much more peaceful place to work.Β  I have a sofa in it as you can see 😊 given to me by a lovely friend.Β  I really don’t feel comfortable at a desk so this is my way around it 😊 It feels great and I feel more efficient already!

It’s good to get everyone in the house involved.Β  Have a clear out together, encourage eachother to donate items you don’t use or need and then plan a nice treat for you all as a reward for all the effort.Β  You could even hide a little note with what you love about them. Which they will hopefully find! 😊

As Adam is 9 years old he needed a hand to get going. He is a massive teddy fan and feels attached to everyone of them. Helping him decide which ones go to a new home via the local charity shop wasn’t easy. So we decided that he would chose a new one once we had dropped these in. It warmed my heart seeing him hug each one and decide who was coming home with us πŸ’œ

It has taken a while but it feels great to know that others will benefit from the things I no longer need. Plus my mind feels so much clearer 😊

So, I begin this New Year with a clearer house, office and head. It feels wonderful to have space for the new to come in 😊

I would love to hear your ideas on just how you begin the year? I’m sure many of you have tips you could share with us. Please do 😊

Again, thankyou so much for reading. I hope this blog gives you a little inspiration to begin the New Year with a fresh start and make space for what matters 😊

Keep sparkling and Shine brightly everyone 🌟
Much love,

From Little Acorns, The Mighty Oak Grows…

I was reminded today that from little acorns, the mighty oak grows 🌳Thank you to my dear friend Gillian ❀ We at Bliss are just beginning our journey as a little acorn, planted firmly in the ground and gently blossoming, and showered with continued support and help by our fans, our Bliss Buds.

The Power of Gratitude

We have decided to set a theme for each month, with November being a month for gratitude. Our posts and blogs shall be filled with the magic and power of gratitude 🌟
Firstly, I would like to say how grateful I am to our lovely customers who believe in us and after embarking on their own journey with ‘My Inspiration Journal’, where they’ve decided to purchase more for friends and family. This is truly touching and a magical reminder of the gentle power in that our journal holds. πŸ’œ To inspire others is exceptionally wonderful. For this to cause a ripple effect within close circles is just magnificent. You just never know how far the journal will travel. Our first month has seen a few sent to far away lands.
Gratitude should also be given to the special team that made this happen and our friends and family who cheered us on. With their help and yours, we are ‘Reaching for the Stars’ 🌟
In the coming weeks we shall share in our blogs about just how an attitude of gratitude is one of our core values in ‘My Inspiration Journal’ We will soon reveal our Bliss Jar, in which young and old can have a ball… Encouraging each other to get creative and inspire one another by drawing, sticking and capturing moments we are all thankful for. We would love for you to share with us on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page of what you are thankful for. We look forward to joining in! 😊

My Gratitude forΒ You

Here’s my cue to start the ball rolling… I am so grateful for those who have shared with me how they use the journal on their journey. All ages have begun to share their hopes and dreams. With our youngest being 4 (with mums help) and oldest 92! Each is very different but have the common theme of looking within to reveal your own inner magic 🌟 which is exactly how it was designed.
So please follow Bliss Inspired on Social Media and of course, keep an eye out for our weekly blog. We thoroughly enjoy giving our followers little tips on how to add extra sparkle to your day, whilst motivating and guiding you with your inspirational journal. Our wish is to inspire and connect with each and every one of you.
Many thanks πŸ’œ
Shine brightly,
