The Fun Stuff:

What part of the world do you come from?

I was born in Nottingham, but spent my teenage years in Brentwood in Essex (before it became famous for TOWIE). After studying in York I came back to Nottingham, moved to Bristol for six years then back to Nottingham again. Nottingham is my home, it’s like a magnet that keeps drawing me back.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

An Air Hostess! Even though it’s not politically correct to call them that anymore. Other than that I wanted to be a recluse!

List three words to describe yourself.

Well avoiding the obvious anxiety related words I would say: Continue reading “Interview with Author, Gail Mitchell @GailMitchell42 #Author #Interview #wwwBlogs”

How To Get Crafty in Your Free Time #crafting #Zentangle

get-crafty-with-your-free-time

Adult colouring books were so last year! Okay, that’s a lie, in fact, I bought a new one last week, and I’m already half way through it. However, if colouring in someone else’s creation doesn’t float your ‘time-out’ boat, then may I suggest Zentangle?

Zen-what I hear you say. Stick with me, and I’ll reveal all. Over on my Motivational Blog, I dedicated an entire month to getting crafty. The posts were very popular, but my Art Attack post on Zentangles received the most hits. You can read it HERE.

The thing I love the most about Zentangling is Continue reading “How To Get Crafty in Your Free Time #crafting #Zentangle”

Going Back To School With @Suzie81blog and @ThankBookFor #SundayBlogShare #Blogging

Learning new skills, adapting old ones, and nurturing our knowledge bank is just as important as we get older as it is when we are young students. Just because we can no longer fit all the candles on the cake, doesn’t mean we must neglect our mind, body, or soul. I re-trained as a holistic health practitioner in my thirties, discovering new therapies and adapting old techniques to fit the anxieties of modern-day clients. When you work in the personal development sector, it’s imperative to stay in touch with improvements, new treatments, and regulations so that you can guide your clients in the most helpful direction.

#MondayBlogs Embracing Opportunities #MondayMotivation

Embracing Opportunities.

It’s two years since I published my non-fiction book, How I Changed My Life in a Year and yet that title is still attracting changes and opportunities into my life.

From hitting the number one spot on Amazon’s best-seller list (twice!) to catching the eye of a big five, and helping me to meet so many amazing readers with inspirational stories to tell, my life really has changed.

Writing a book like this allows you to share a personal part of yourself with the world. I never thought of writing a memoir before, but How I Changed My Life in a Year fit perfectly into this genre.

People relate to the ‘real you,’ in the same way, readers devour author interviews to find out about their favourite writer. It’s a joy to share something so private and have it well received.

This book has opened up so many opportunities for me. I’ve been invited to numerous events, workshops, and networking groups to talk about the challenges I took part in for the book. I’ve appeared in the Writers’ Forum Magazine, been interviewed by some of my favourite book bloggers, and now I get to stand up on stage at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham to kick off the inspirational workshops at this year’s Mind Body Spirit Wellbeing Festival.

All the wonderful things that have happened can be traced back to my book. I met the very wonderful, Kim Nash, who blogs at Kim the Bookworm when she contacted me after reading my book. She introduced me to the hugely motivational author, Theresa Cheung who writes the best-selling afterlife titles such as The Ten Secrets of Heaven. It’s thanks to Kim and Theresa that I can join them at the NEC on the 4th November. Our topic is finding Heaven and my section covers Heaven on Earth and what that means to me.

Finding my place as a writer in this world has brought me so much happiness, and this continues to be my focus. Taking myself seriously as a writer was a huge turning point in my life, and by embracing this passion and continuing to evolve my writing skills, I will be able to continue embracing every opportunity that comes my way.

If you would like to join author, Theresa Cheung, spiritual medium, Claire Broad, and myself, for our inspirational workshop, then click HERE for more information about the festival and to buy your ticket.

We are on stage Friday 4th November between 10.30am – 12.30pm.

Have you ever embraced an opportunity that changed you in some way?

Make Time For What Matters – Now! #SundayBlogShare #SpecialOffer

Everyone knows how much I love writing lists and goal setting, and it’s commonly known that I enjoy a good New Year resolution or two. The New Year is a great time to work on new beginnings and fresh starts. However, you don’t need to wait until January 1st to make relevant changes to your lifestyle, career, health, or wellbeing.

September, for me, is the perfect month to embrace those new adventures, start a new academic course either online or at night school, or begin a health regime that will keep you mentally and physically fit during the winter. It’s a month of crisp weather, the promise of home grown apples and blackberries, and let’s not forget the oodles of back to school stationery just waiting to be purchased.

#MondayMuse You Can Be Inspired with Louise Hay #MondayBlogs

Monday Muse

Inspirational people surround us at every turn.  To celebrate some of the incredible women who continue to motivate me on my writing journey, I am sharing my Monday Muse – a look at the women/characters who are my artistic inspiration.

Last week I wrote about a childhood favourite, Mary Norton. You can read that post HERE.  Today, I’m devoting the Monday Muse to a woman who inspires my non-fiction work, healer, and author, Louise Hay.

#BookReview Unlimited Energy Now by Catherine Carrigan #TuesdayBookBlog #RBRT

 

‘Unlimited Energy Now’ by Catherine Carrigan #RBRT

cover with badge_2

My Rating: 3 out of 5

Unlimited Energy Now, aims to identify the area you need to work on by following the instructions in each unit.  The book is set out in five ‘sections’ each divided into short chapters.

The first section is about the physical body, and having suffered from adrenal fatigue in the past I was intrigued to read about stress and the impact on your adrenals.  There was a single paragraph about adrenal stress followed by a list of symptoms and then a numbered list of strategies that would help.  I would have liked more information, maybe a few case studies to demonstrate how the strategies work.
