A Dose Of Motivation

 A busy weekend lies ahead but before the weekend begun I just wanted to talk about a couple of subjects. 

My Friday has been lovely, I am so very lucky to have the opportunity to work with Chorley FM and Simon Field. It definitely  has ended the week with a bang and what a week it has been. What an amazing guy Simon is and a star in the making - I need his autograph. He works so hard. 

I won't lie, I am exhausted.. I was SO pumped up on motivation and inspiration from the awards last week ( how is that a week ago?) I so WISH we had a rewind & replay button. Such a magical night. However, being so motivated has somewhat clouded my own feelings. I was beyond tired yesterday. I just made it to 10pm before my eyes couldn't stay open any longer. I won't lie, my sleeping has been off recently due to my mind always whirling with ideas, tasks and so on but last night even my mind needed a re-charge and could no longer function. 

The weekend, once more seems to be a busy one, who knows MAYBE Sunday I will squeeze in time to actually celebrate being shortlisted for the European Diversity Awards. I feel like it is still somewhat a dream and question, is this real? 

IT IS AN I AM BEYOND GRATEFUL, and still scream inside with excitement every time I think about it. I CAN'T WAIT and I am so honoured. 

This week, Avril Lavigne dropped her newest song which she wrote from her death-bed, about her struggles with Lyme Disease. I know so many sufferers will be able to relate to the lyrics and I think for us all its a huge motivational boost, that we can still make negative circumstances into sparkling works of art. For me, I know it just really highlighted to keep on pushing myself and being the best person I can. Never losing sight of my mission and never losing hope in our hearts I think is so very key. I am guilty for pushing myself too hard at times and this week, definitely I have been flagging and struggling to keep up the pace.

It has as always been productive, booking in key events for next year, raising awareness, magazine articles and as always juggling a million and one projects. I know how busy the weekend is set to be and my blog is my everything - without it I wouldn't be where I am today and I didn't want to miss highlighting the positives from the week, the events that have occurred and what we have to look forward to in the future. It is my job to be my own cheerleader but also be a cheerleader for you all and so I wanted to give you all a little dose of motivation going into the weekend.

We must remember that we can succeed and make a difference, we are all unique and have our own passions, projects and skills that we bring to the world.  

As always .. THANK YOU for supporting me and reading my posts. I am so thankful and grateful. 

We have so many wonderful things to look forward too, but if you are feeling a little less motivated just look around and you will probably find the dose of motivation you were looking for is right in front of you. Enjoy uncovering new skills, be inspired by role models and step outside of you comfort zone. 

Love always,
