Social media fairytale 🧚‍♀️

Evening all

I’m so happy it’s Friday I’m sure your all happy too unless your working this weekend if you are booo..

I’ve seen a lot of posts today about keeping your social media real. #keepthegramreal

Although I have to admit I do love a Snapchat filter myself but I have to completely agree sometimes I look at people’s Instagram posts and I feel a little wave of insecurity come over me.

I know I’m not the only one who thinks this although I’m happy for people but sometimes our insecurities can take over our logical way of thinking then you start doubting yourself.

One thing I’ve learnt over the past few months is its OK not to be perfect.

Everyone has their good and bad days.

So what if your hairs messy.

Or you can’t be bothered to do your make up its not end of the world self care emotionally is more important.

Also living your life is important making memories taking time out to think away from technology and people.

Social media can be a great way to communicate but it can also become very toxic to people.

Just remember no one is perfect we all have bad days and good days don’t compare yourself to anyone.

Most of all don’t judge anyone you don’t know what they are going through.

Join the campaign and #keepthegramreal ❤️❤️❤️

Love to you all 💋💋💋💕

Help it’s only Tuesday 😱

Heya all

Cant believe its only Tuesday all these Bank Holidays off has got me all spoilt and that.

You know when you can feel like it’s going to be the longest week of your life well yep well this is my week commencing.

It’s more like a constant loop for me every week is the same go to work sort kids oh and sleep I love to sleep.

When my weeks are like this it gives me lots of time to think.

Me I hate thinking its the worst and for anyone who knows me knows I can be a complete nightmare when I’m like this.

You see I’m an overthinker I’m always thinking of what could happen instead of just letting things happen naturally.

It’s almost like I’m trying to control my own fate which is impossible.

I could really just do with someone taking all the thoughts and feelings out of my head storing them in a locked box and throwing the keys away that would be amazing.

ide love to start fresh maybe meet people for the first time again how I would change situations and how I approach people in a better way so they could see the real me.

The trouble with me is that I try to hard to be the perfect person that people want me to be instead of being the person I am.

But I have no magic time machine nor can I fix what’s broken from my past I will just have to live with my mistakes and learn from them.

I’ve never been good with my emotions I can’t quite get out what need to say in person.

But when I write and blog I feel it’s a sense of healing for me.

It’s a perfect way to share my feelings and thoughts.

I know I’m not the only one in the world who’s feeling a little heart broken but I really would like to share this with my readers.

Your doing the best you can in life your alive your breathing your living find it in your heart to forgive people who treat you badly and know that everyone is fighting battles we know nothing about be kind share love.

I pray for a quick week and slow weekend I hope you do too ❤️

Peace out ✌️✌️💋

Ohana means family, ❤️👨‍👩‍👧👭👫

Evening 😊

I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend.

Mines been amazing my family from down south came to visit it was really nice to see them Seems like forever since I last saw them.

When I made my decision to move up the northwest it wasn’t an easy one probably the hardest choice I had to make.

Leaving my parents and my sister and my neice behind wasn’t easy I’m a very strong person I do deal with hard situations quite well but making a choice to leave them and try to create a better life for me and my girls was the hardest choice I’ve ever had to make.

My parents have always given me the space to grow and be independent in life.

They are not over the top parents who need a say in every aspect of my life.

We definitely don’t live in each others pockets.

But as we get older you learn to treasure the time spent together.

Making memories is what’s important.

My girls have cherished the time we they have spent with their grandparents their auntie uncle and cousin.

To me distance means nothing Infact its made me cherish my family more.

One thing I never take for granted is time it was so nice to see a smile on my dad’s face again.

Ide like to share a few pics with you all….

Have a great week all.

Peace out

Wow what a day ❤️⚽🔐🌊

Hey everyone what day its been.

Ive finally managed to find a place for my padlock on Albert docks ive been putting it off for 18 months.

And now I’ve finally done it I feel closure and a lot more at peace with myself.

Please excuse my squinting eyes and sandals in May.

I’ve had such a good day with good company ive not stopped laughing..

I absolutely love going to my favourite city.

I got to see half the barca team outside the Hilton hotel on Albert docks.

But what made me most happiest was that there was a certain buzz about the town yes it was full of barca fans but the sense of pride Liverpool people have for lfc is beyond anything I’ve ever seen in my lifetime.

And to finish my day off they are now through to the final in Madrid.. Even klopp was lost for words.

I absolutely love days like this when I’m at my most happiest and most positive.

I felt like I could truly be myself.

I’ve not felt such emotion like this for such a long time.

I’m actually really excited for my future.

I hope you all have had a great day whatever you may have been doing.

Peace out

It’s the little things in life that make me happy.

Hey everyone hope you have had a good Bank Holiday weekend.

I’ve been a total lazy bum this weekend just what I needed.

Tomorrow I’m off to Liverpool and im rather excited to finally be putting my love lock on Albert docks.

Here is an example for people who are unsure about what they are are as you can see they have been added to the fences near the River Mersey decorating the chains with symbols of love people from all over the world come and put locks on when they visit Liverpool.

Might seem rather sad to some of you but this will be a symbol of the love and respect I now have for myself.

It will help me remind myself of a time when I thought I couldn’t overcome a situation and I totally did and how I gained respect and self love by doing this.

I’m going through a closing the door stage in my life and I’m also healing from a very stressful and traumatic 18 months.

I’m finally coming out the other side as a better person.

I don’t want all my posts to be depressing or heavy but this for me is a fantastic way to express my feelings and thoughts to all my fabulous readers and fellow bloggers.

I really hope my blogs help people to not feel alone in a situation at the end of the day this is real life we get one chance here and I intend to live it.

So as tommrow I will put another puzzle peice into my healing I will finally be able to start to let go.

Sometimes it’s not the big changes that make the difference most the time they turn our lives upside down leaving us with this big pile of emotional mess that takes us years to sort through.

When we are so focused on the big picture we miss the little and simplest changes that impact us for the better just a simple gesture or getting time to actually breathe without anything or anyone interrupting is amazing.

When you have been through trauma and heartbreak you start seeing the world through different eyes.

This is you really opening up to the world around you and the universe telling you there is so much more to life that what we allow ourselves to see.

If it’s something as little as me putting a lock on a fence at Albert docks that’s going to kick start my healing process and help me become a better person I’m going to take it however silly it may sound.

Follow your heart beacuse your mind plays tricks on you.

Lots of love

But you’ve not Seen end game yet!!!

Happy early Sunday morning all,

So I’m annoyed to the next person who says to me but your a massive marvel fan and you haven’t seen avengers end game yet I honestly would love to death stare you into oblivion.

I am a massive marvel fan yes,

But do I know every single fact about marvel no and if I did i’de of gave Stan a run for his money god rest his soul.

I keep getting told ironman dies yes that’s fine by me not a massive ironman fan anyway but he was still pretty cool.

Can I just state to all the hard core avengers geeks out there I salute you for your dedication to marvel.

This is not a direct attack on you 😂 ❤️

It’s lighthearted post on why I feel the need to wait to see a three hour movie..

One: its the time 3 hours of my life in a cinema in one go how do I go to the toilet in between and not miss anything not like I’ve got anyone to give me a catch up on it. 🙄🤔

Two: I personally don’t think my bum could take three hours on a Cinema seat in all honesty it’s like sitting on them horrible plastic chairs you used to sit on at school.

Three. At the moment I just haven’t got the time I’m always at work.

Four. Ide rather wait untill it comes out on blue Ray where I can watch in my living room and I can pause it as much as I like and rewatch any bits I dont quite understand and not look like a confused idiot and perhaps Google bits I dont get without being tutted at beacuse my phone light has ruined the ambiance.

It’s not the end of the world that I’ve not seen end game good things come to those who wait.

Night night 🌃❤️

Where has the time gone 😢 ❤️

Hiya everyone so I’ve been looking back at some old pictures I came across one. Picture that one I look terrible in so I apologise now if anyone was eating there tea.

It’s a picture of me and my two girls Ellie and ava who are now nearly eleven and six.

😱 Where does the time go…

First your changing nappies and doing 3am feeds

To not being able to get them out of bed and them completely throwing a strop beacuse the other ones stolen the others phone charger.

1st picture was when Ellie was around four nearly five years old and ava was around 5 weeks old at my parents home.

Second picture was taken a few weeks ago..

Ellies now nearly eleven and going to high school this September and ava is nearly six I can’t belive how time fly’s I haven’t done much right in my life but I know I’ve done right by my two girls.

Even though it’s hard at times times I just want to press pause and restart again.

I am so proud of them both and I push them all the time to do their best and be the best they can be.

They have seen mummy in some sad places over the last few months but I’m so glad they understand that life’s not smooth sailing and what ever life throws at us it makes us stronger.

So in my house when we have a bad day we throw on some…

And show the world we will grow from our knock backs and get back up and try again…

Anyone who’s got kids or is having a baby cherish every moment time goes really quick and one minute they need you then next they don’t so make lots of memories.

Peace out ✌️✌️❤️

Brain please be quite just for a moment..

Hiya everyone I’m back for another blog post..

I’ve had a horrible few days with my anxiety this evening it’s peaked and its broken me down.

Have to keep telling myself….

I absolutely hate the person I become during these episodes beacuse it’s really not me, I’m constantly worried about everything and everyone.

And don’t get me started on the paranoia I have the most horrible thoughts about my family and my freinds completely hating me as a person.

I’ve lost a lot of friends from this and me pushing them away.

You know how life goes home pressure work pressure negative atmosphere negative people in general all gets a bit much.

I’ve tried really hard just lately to get rid of everything and everyone who causes stress to my life.

Which seems to have helped but yet again another episode.

Its like a pattern for me starts with extreme lows and great highs & lack of being able to shut off at night.

Night time for me is the worst its the time my Brain is most active and unable to stop overthinking about what I did or didn’t do or say.

I’m always worried I’ve said the wrong thing or done something wrong.

It’s horrible it always ends in a break down & me in floods of tears not understanding why Ive allowed myself to get like this again.

I genuinely feel for other people who suffer from anxiety it’s bloody terrible I know it’s not just women but men who come across confident who also suffer from anxiety.

Anyone can be affected by this at any point in their lives.

But you just have to remember this 👇👇👇

One step at a time take every day as it comes.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of the people that matter will 💯 understand.

Always remember…

Find a distraction hobby mines singing I put everything I have into that every emotion and situation I put across through music this has completely helped me my anxiety my attacks are getting less and less.

Apart from this evening I’ve not been like this for a while.

But hey I hope this is a one off…

Hopefully things will get better 🙏🏻

Stay strong people

Does it really ever matter what other people think??

Now that’s a question and a half..

With this blog ladies and gents hits one of my top ten pet hates with the human society.

Are we pretty enough are we skinny enough do we look happy, do I look rich.

Yes the digital age where women spend most there time looking at pictures of perfect size 0 models looking incredible whist looking in the mirror and completely hating ourselves.

So here’s the thing I have to admit I used to be one of those women who was just dying to be skinny, who wanted to be accepted into society for being an average sized women.

Well my body has taken on some pretty serious battles over the past 13 years my weight has fluctuated over the time from really skinny and looking like Jack whitehall.

To piling on the weight after my first child.

It’s taken me nearly 9 years to steady my weightloss and to keep it off.

I’ve always been told I’m not skinny enough I could do with loosing weight I’m not pretty enough.

I’ve dealt with rejection and betrayal over my appearance I was once told by an ex that If I lost a bit of weight i would be more prettier.

OK so that was his opinion but you know what…, 🖕 you.

I was good enough it’s not nice to put others down In Life we are supposed to support and protect each other.

I’ve realised Ive ruined so many chances of something good because of my own insecurity.

Due to my past experiences I just wasn’t strong enough to say enough is enough.

But now I think this 👇👇👇👇

And I still stand by this even more so now.

Even though my body is still changing due to health reasons I’m learning to love myself a little bit more each day.

So I wanted to share this with you all in the hope it will make you realise that your wonderful just the way you are.

In life Everyone goes through a transition its a sense of becoming a better person, you realise that you have been taking people’s negative crap for far to long.

Best thing you can do is in life is to love yourself for you & stop trying to be a sheep & follow the flock life’s way to short.

Who cares if you have stretch marks from having babies girl you did something amazing you brought life into this world and that takes strength.

So what If you like a donut every now and again.

So what If you don’t have a thigh gap.

So what if your skins not perfect.

So what if you like messy bun no make up chilling with your sweat pants on days.

My eyebrows don’t even make an appearance on those days.

No one’s perfect always remember that.

The whole point of this blog is to spread love to every women out there and man who’s feeling pressured by society and soical media.

Remember they only post what they want people to see don’t feel pressured to follow suit just be you.

And if you want to make a positive change in your life a healthy mind leads to a healthy body.

A Positive mind leads to great things

Sending positive vibes to you all…
