An Awesome Feeling…

On Saturday 14th December 2013 I got up early on my day off and headed to Bromley Intu centre to Christmas wrap and raise awareness on Make A Wish Foundation.

It was a lovely morning, the morning crew consisted of me, Amanda, Michael and Claire. Plus the awesome Emma from Make A Wish. It really was good fun getting festive, wrapping presents and raising awareness. Very early on in the morning we met a lovely woman who looked like she’d seen a ghost. Her son had benefited from Make A Wish Foundation and she was eager to give back. Her story was both beautiful and heart-breaking. Emma was awesome with her. Later on, we met others who had benefited from the charity and a lady who had helped grant a wish.

A truly enlightening day that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope to do more for Make A Wish Foundation next year. Today I found out we raised an awesome ยฃ550. I am still hoping some kind friends, family, colleagues and followers will add to my personal page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1

Inspirational Monday #4

When life gives you every reason to be negative,
think of one good reason to be positive.

Oh how true this statement is.
Although some days finding that positive sure is hard.
I sometimes think we’re looking in the wrong place completely, whereas other days it’s there like a beacon.

Have a fantastic Monday…..:) I guess I should get up.

Thank You!

I just wanted to take the time to say Thank You to each and every person that has liked,followed or commented on my blog.
It’s strange how things change. A short while ago I was ready to pull the plug on this blog. Thanks to pure nastiness. Yesterday I overtook my current record for follows in a day. This made me smile and made me realise there are some lovely people out there who seem to like what I have to say.

So thank you to every single one of you who have made me realise that blogging can still be fun. I have made some awesome friends and I have found some fantastic blogs along the way.

I feel that Inspirational Monday’s have not only made me feel better and more positive. They seem to be getting a lot of views which is nice. If you’d like to take part feel free to comment on my page with your link. I am also still happy to take on Guest Posts.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Inspirational Monday #3

Happy Monday!

Sorry for the semi silence. There has been lots going on in my life. I should have posted a Think About It Thursday writing prompt last week, but preparations for my nieces first birthday took over.

On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend one of Mcfly’s 10 year anniversary concerts at The Royal Albert Hall. They are extremely impressive live and Tom Fletcher gets even more creative as the years go on.

I promise there will be a Think About It Thursday this week. Pippa had a wonderful day, I’m not going to lie I enjoyed playing about with her in soft play. Although bouncy castles are even more tiring when you’re also bouncing a one-year-old.

When I found this quote from a Twitter quotes page I knew that it had to feature on Inspirational Monday.

Everyday is a new day. Another chance. Another opportunity to get things right. To try again. Don’t give up

I don’t know about you but this is the exact quote I need to keep motivated.

Happy Inspirational Monday

It’s a quote that is easy to say but not always easy to listen too and to take action from. I want Monday’s to be a day we all (myself included) learn to act on.

I’ve had a semi productive day now I am embracing The Vampire Diaries series Four.

Guest Post: Inspirational Monday #2

It’s funny just after I had written and created #InspirationalMondays I was already thinking of what I could use next.

I am pleased to pass over my Inspirational Monday to one of my newest blogger friends…to Swati Jain. Check out her blog full of some cracking inspiration and positive vibes here

So over to Swati. Thank you so much for this uplifting post.

Love Life and it will love you back! ๐Ÿ™‚
Life takes a way a lot from us,
But it indeed gives us a lot more in return..
We often fail to realize it today,
And overlook that we get so much to learn..!

Eventually when we have happy days again,
we do realize, that after all life isnโ€™t that bad..
And the day we do, we laugh at our own foolishness,
And thinking about it, we again become sad..

Of โ€˜course life is not easy,
But who, ever, said it would be..?
Getting through the tough times bravely,
And smiling throughout is the real key..! ๐Ÿ™‚

Learn to see the brighter side of it today..
Live it, Love it..and more so Value it..
Stay strong during those troublesome times,
And you will soon realize that Life is WORTH IT ๐Ÿ™‚

Be thankful for all those :
NIGHTS that turned into MORNINGS..
FRIENDS who turned into FAMILY..
DREAMS that turned into REALITY..
LIKES that turned into LOVE..

Each day I am thankful for NIGHTS
that turned into MORNINGS, friends
that turned into FAMILY, dreams that
turned into REALITY, and likes that
turned into LOVE.

Past – is gone,
Future- you cannot predict..
Today โ€“ It is Godโ€™s gift..and thatโ€™s why its called PRESENT.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Live it..Love it..and Life will love you back even more ๐Ÿ™‚
Lets begin the week with this positivity and life will seem to be easier and brighter ๐Ÿ™‚
Keep smiling and keep shining ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Monday… If like Swati you would like to share some inspiration on a Monday feel free to get in touch. I am also looking for Guest Posts during the first week of October, whilst I am away being a tourist for my besties birthday. I have three places filled already but please do get in touch.

Daily Passion Prompt. #Day One

Two posts in one day it really is #InspirationalMonday….

I came across a tweet from the WordPress Twitter about blogger events and this particular event made me stop and think.

If you fancy joining me here are the rules also check out Passionpressdaily

We live in a busy world, and sometimes we forget that passion and purpose are more important than promotions and PR.

Over the next 39 days, Iโ€™ll post one compelling question a day to help guide you towards re-igniting, re-discovering, or re-designing what youโ€™re passionate about in life โ€“ both personally and professionally!

If youโ€™ve lost that sense of passion about your work, career, school, or personal life; then these questions will serve you well.

To participate, create a post or comment that answers the โ€œDaily Passion Promptโ€ question and post your link or typed response in the comments of the Passion Prompt for that particular day.

These passion prompts are meant to serve as a form of daily guided discovery towards the feelings, drives, and emotions that inspire you to do those things you love most about your life, your talents, your skills, and the way in which you make an impact.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Now what would I do?. I also read a few other posts about this topic and that made me even more determined to put something together.

If I knew I wouldn’t fail I would take more risks. I would give my number to a cute guy, accept an invitation I would normally turn down and generally I would be much more brazen than I am.

One other thing I wish I could never fail at is getting rid of bullying. This is a topic that is close to my heart. Check out a few of my posts on this subjectCyber Bullying and Bullying

I look forward to seeing what else this challenge brings.

Inspirational Monday….

It sure has been a while since I’ve felt inspired. Thanks to my many friends, family and my blogger family.
I am slowly getting there YAY!!! I am posting so that’s a huge positive.

I have decided no one really likes Monday’s, for me today is very gloomy and wet in London that’s not very inspiring. So as of today Monday’s will be inspirational here on my blog.

Welcome to Inspirational Monday feel free to get involved….here is my first token of inspiration. Enjoy.
