I’ve spent too much time away from my blog. I kept telling myself I’ll write tomorrow, but tomorrow would come after 5 days or a week. Now that I’m back at work, I keep looking back and asking myself where did those three months go. It all seems like a little blank canvas filled with many rubbed out pencil lines. As there was so little going on during those locked days, I don’t have much to say apart from speaking about the walks or the weather.
During my lunch break I was carrying around my copy of the secret. When a colleague asked me what I was reading I jumped into a full detailed rave about the book. As if my thoughts were waiting for someone to ask me that very question. I pretty much sold the idea of reading the secret to everyone who had already read it. Was I really that late to the game? I said to my manager I wish I had read it a lot sooner. Her reply to me was maybe it wasn’t the right time for you to discover it and now was. I thought about what she said and agreed with her. She was right. Everything has its timing. Everything happens for a reason. This was the right time as I understand it better and give it much more thought than I would’ve years ago.
I’m currently reading You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero and loving every single word of it. In my humble opinion, it’s a hilarious, feel-good, self-help book. Each sentence has me creasing with laughter, a smile, or a smirk. Jen really makes self-love amusing. Now, here I am consciously bringing my mind to the present with short breathing meditations at the count of four. Presently I’m reading the chapter on controlling one’s emotions. Needed that is all I keep telling myself after each tip.
The biggest tip of all is to “Love yourself”, no book needs to tell you that.

I love that book by Jen Sincero! I think I’ve read it about 2-3 times. Sometimes I don’t read it all the way through, only through the sections that I’ve highlighted or where the corners are folded in. I’m currently reading the Law of Attraction, which I find to be pretty similar to The Secret, but written in a different style, and I’m really enjoying it so far! I think you’d like it.
And honestly, don’t feel bad for not blogging, this is an unforeseen difficult time everyone’s going through, and it’s okay, if you’re not blogging as much! I’ve had some really tough things going on in my life right now, and even though I miss blogging, at the same time I can’t form coherent sentences to create good blog posts. I’m hoping to be able to write something up soon though! xx

I will have a look at the law of attraction. I’ve just finished the book you are a bad ass. I loved it.
I completely get that. I was/ still am the same. Its taking me a lot longer to write. But you will get back into it. It is one of those things that cant be rushed or pushed. It has to come naturally.
I hope you’re doing ok
