When you give you also receive ❤

Giving-My-Inspiration-Journal-Giving-450I’m sure many of you have seen a version of this list. I love it and decided to add a few of my own 😊

Being present can be a tough one during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Particularly if you are a sensitive soul like me! Take time to centre yourself and bring your thoughts to the present moment. This can help alleviate some of the stress. Go easy on yourself, buy mindfully and if possible locally. With the intention of leaving a smile on someone’s face.

Hugs ❤ have a magical healing energy around them. Give them with extra special sparkle and feel how it boosts happiness levels in you both! We begin and end each Bliss meeting with one 😊 Now here is my challenge, it has to be a good one which lasts at least 20 seconds ❤

Set the intention of sending out as much love as possible. Even when faced with a challenging situation. Say someone takes that car space you were waiting for. Send love to them anyway, they may really need it!

If we all donate a little something we can make a difference in someone’s life. Also a good clear out makes space for the new to come in. Donate pre loved items to charity, leave a gift in the supermarket donation trolley, visit and donate at the local animal shelter. The choice is yours.

Make peace carries so many meanings. Set a peaceful intention for the world and for you personally. Is there a certain someone who could do with an olive branch or a hug ❤

I love this one. Be the light 🌟 When you are shinning, you attract others to shine. How awesome is that? One candle can light thousands!

The world needs so many more people to spread sparkle wherever they go. Even the smallest act of spreading sparkle can change someone’s day. Smile at a stranger. Hold doors open. Help someone struggling with lots of bags. Ask an elderly neighbour do they need anything? When you wake in the morning, think of special ways to spread your sparkle and feel free to share with us 😊

Well these are just a few ideas from me. Giving and receiving are two of the most precious activities we can carry out and when you do so with the intention of love you shine brightly 🌟

Thank you for reading ❤

Sparkly hugs to you all!

Much love,

November Month of Gratitude week 2.

November Month of Gratitude week 2.

So our November month of gratitude continues.

November is the perfect month for adding the attitude of gratitude into your day.  This lies deep in the heart of ‘My Inspiration Journal ‘ 💜   There are many pages in My Inspiration Journal in which to fill each and every day, with positive quotes dotted throughout, encouraging you along the way.  Here is one of the many ways you could use your journal to journey within and help reveal your own personal Bliss!
Hidden amongst the pages you will find your very own Bliss Jar (gratitude jar) To fill with the people, things and memories you are grateful for. Our Bliss Bird sits on the top waiting for you to add your own treasures and Sparkle 🌟in a way only you can!  These can spill over into the adjacent page as you add to these over the coming months. Once filled you can draw your own in the free pages and feel free to share 😊


As ‘My Inspiration Journal ‘ has been created for all ages I asked my son Adam and my lovely niece Zoe who are both 8 to do this with me.   We spent a few minutes chatting and then dived in. With colouring markers and lots of glitter and sparkles everywhere (sorry sis for the mess..) they and I filled our jars.   Adam chose a sweetie design with his blessings in each.   Zoe chose lots of colour and glitter, describing her blessings that help to make her feel happy.   I borrowed our graphic designer, Julie Ann ‘ s lovely idea and wrote in multi coloured hearts, leaving room to add more when inspiration strikes at a later date!

Month of Gratitude - MyInspirationJournal-MyBlissJar-Gratitude-2-Final

So a wet Sunday afternoon turned into something quite special in many ways. We spent time together, shared thoughts and feelings, laughed, created our own unique gratitude jars.

Sometimes when we take the time to notice just how lucky we are life has much more sparkle 🌟 And remember November month of gratitude each day.

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. 💜 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 for 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 💜
Shine brightly,
