If I am to encourage you to ‘Reach For The Stars’ then I shall have to do the same and so my story commences.
I’m a single mum, living with an invisible illness. Life has inevitably had its challenges.
I was in the midst of an Occupational Therapy degree when I made the decision to live life at a slower pace and so I left college and returned to my former career working with children. When feeling stronger, I decided it was time for more of a challenge.
I embraced a career in Mental Health for the next 10 years working at a residential supported housing scheme for adults. A lot of my day was taken up with my mission to engage our residents in positive and purposeful activity, which I absolutely loved. I then chose to concentrate my efforts on the centre of my world, my little boy Adam and live a more balanced life. I began the search for how I could make a positive difference to the world in my own unique way.
Over the years I have taken classes, qualified in Reflexology and Reiki 1. I’ve often been inspired by uplifting and inspirational stories, articles and books. I have learnt valuable life lessons whilst practising gratitude and mindfullness. While on this unique journey I was introduced to the most inspiring souls, directing my steps and leading my heart to a much more positive way of being. During this time I have found many positive benefits from keeping journals; in fact one could say that it has been my constant companion.
My Sources of Inspiration
The source of my inspiration for this gently guided journal was Adam. 18 months ago he inspired me to think of a way to calm his anxious mind before going to sleep at night. At the time I felt this was purely for him but I came to realise that my inner child needed it too. A special place to channel my feelings, hopes and dreams. To hold on to and look back on for years to come.
At this time I realised ‘ My Inspiration Journal’ could also inspire others and how amazing would that be? By encouraging positive self-expression, creativity and self-love; Promoting and strengthening your inner resilience, which at times can be dented by what life throws at us; To help reveal the magic in each and every one of us.
Leaping forward, I have successfully stepped out of my comfort zone. By bringing ‘My Inspiration Journal ‘ to life. A magical roller coaster of a journey so far!
Bringing ‘My Inspiration Journal’ to life.
I have met wonderful people along the way. An inspired friend introduced me to Julie-Ann. An amazingly talented graphic designer who understood my vision and loved it. Together we brought the journal to life on paper.
And so, our story unfolds. Julie Ann is a big part of the Bliss Team, which is growing. More amazing souls who work from the heart, have joined us on our journey. Using their own unique talents to help launch us into the universe. For this I am truly grateful.
Our mission is to inspire you to ‘Reach for the Stars’ Please join us on a new, exciting and magical ride. Help us to spread positivity and inspiration far and wide.
