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 £550. I am still hoping some kind friends, family, colleagues and followers will add to my personal page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
So on Saturday 14th December 2014 I shall be giving up some of my time to wrap presents in a local shopping centre for Make A Wish Foundation. I decided that I want to raise some extra money for this amazing charity. So I have set up a Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
so my friends, family, colleagues and followers can help me support the charity. I would love to wrap all of your presents for you but I just won’t see all of you, seeing as we all live in different places.
I am sorry for my silence again…I have been a busy bee but I hope to check in with you all whenever I can. Thanks again to all the wonderful and supportive friends I have made just on WordPress. It’s been a testing time but I won’t be beaten by negativity and pure cruelness. I really do appreciate whatever you can spare I have set myself a target of £100 without whatever I get on the day and I already have £15.00.
Anyway I shall love you and leave you with a quote that I believe we should all be saying to ourselves.
Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.
I have been wanting to post all day. But I did not know what to say. Today has been one of those days that just drags, I guess because I’m off to the Emerald Isle tomorrow. Although London Transport sure did ruin my evening tonight, what a nightmare. Trains cancelled, buses packed and next to no info.
Anyway, I didn’t know what to say and wanted to try and have some relevance and meaning to my blog entry and then I found this…..
Instead of putting people down all of your life, inspire someone, change someone’s life for the better, make someone smile.
I feel awful for neglecting you all, the sad thing is I keep meaning to post. Although I have been a tad busy in lots of different ways. This week I promise my Think About It Thursday will be finished and published.
In the meantime a good friend posted this quote on Twitter and I believe it’s something we all need to tell ourselves once in a while….
Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.
Hello I am so sorry it’s been so long. I won’t bore you with reasons. I will document part of my trip to France at some point. I think I need a good 48 hour day lol.
I just wanted to share this quote with you all.
I am trying to embrace positivity again. Had a few testing times but I know I can get back. I would like to also take a moment to thank the truly amazing Matt. Not only is he an awesome blogger but a true friend…check out the Kingdom https://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/
It’s Thursday so I should finish and add on today’s Think About It Thursday before the day is out….
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.
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 🙂
