1st Blog of December the month of Giving 🎄

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,

My Gratitude List – Gratitude Week 4

My Gratitude List – Gratitude Week 4

My Gratitude List – Gratitude Week 4

So i thought i would end the month of November with a gratitude list, of sorts!

So many special moments to be grateful for, so many special people sprinkling their sparkle and inspiring others to be the best they can be 😊

With everything going on in the world, we have so much to be thankful for and as we begin the festive season it’s always good to take stock and count your blessings.

Everyday, give thanks for all your little  treasures and you will be sure to find more!

I myself know that life can be challenging but a positive attitude can help make things easier. It’s important that you go easy on yourself, don’t give up and follow your heart 💜

This time of year can be stressful for some, I will include myself in this. By setting the intention of focusing on the good helps you prioritise the things that are important to you. Take each day as it comes, prioritise your tasks and try to avoid overwhelming yourself by achieving a few small steps each day and let the rest go. Tomorrow is a new day.

I would like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am to our Bliss Team.  Some changes have occurred and to those who have helped us launch and find our little place in the world I am very grateful.  It’s like the saying “People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime”.  Julie Ann, Ruan and I wish Guy and Laura all the very best, without them we would not be here today.  Such talented individuals with big hearts and we wish them much success in the future 🌟

When I look back to this time last year, when all I had was a dream and the journal on rough pieces of paper.. it’s amazing just how far this journey has taken me. When you trust and have faith in your dreams they can happen 😊

My-Inspiration-Journal-Gratitude-4-MIJI have met the most wonderful people along the way. Inspiring me to ‘Reach for the Stars’ 🌟

To you, our Bliss Buds, I would like to say a huge thank you. I don’t think I have ever had so many hugs, well wishes and smiles. My heart swells when I see and hear all the beautiful comments on the journal. I have made so many new friends who sparkle so brightly ⭐

So I end the month with gratitude. Thank you for shinning your unique light, the world needs you. Just be yourself.   I took some time today to use My Inspiration Journal to express my gratitude for some of the things in my life for which I am truly grateful and thought I’d share it with you.

I was reminded that people should play to their strengths.  I try my best to and ‘My Inspiration Journal ‘ 💜 can help you to find yours. When you look within you will discover all sorts of hidden magic that brings out your own unique sparkle 🌟   To find out more please visit our website myinspirationjournal.com.

I would also like to thank my friend Tim Feherty for the beautiful image we used as the feature image of this post.  The shot was taken on Ballyholme Beach in County Down.  Other examples of Tim’s work can be see HERE

‘Follow your Bliss and Sparkle’ 💜

Shine brightly everyone 🌟

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!

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 😊

Gratitude-MyBlissJar-InProgress

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 🌟
