50 Happy Things 2018: Bloggers Unite to Flood the Internet With Gratitude

As you know, I do love anything connected with gratitude and when a post from Tales from the Motherland popped into my emails, the first words I read were ‘happy’ ‘bloggers’ ‘gratitude’.  Funny the words your eyes pick out first.

It was a no-brainer for me to take part.  After all, I already list my happy things each Friday in my #HighlightsofHappy linky and love the idea of listing 50 things that I’m grateful for in 15 minutes (you can see the instructions below my list).

Why this year was a great one for me!

's planned for next year 2016 into 2017 happy new year goals focus planning blogging blog wellbeing writing parenting virtually all sorts round up
So here we are, right at the end of 2016 and what a year it’s been!  I’ve achieved so much on this here blog and a ton of that is because of Aby from YouBabyMeMummy and the great advice and courses she offers.

 

As a result of her Productivity Course and her Wrap Party, I’m streamlining, I’m more focussed and I’m making some changes for the new year!  I’m a great believer in not waiting for the new year to make changes but it just so happens that a little step back from the blog for a week or so has brought me to this time and place.  So it happens to be the new year that I’m publishing this…

 

What’s going to happen in 2017 then?
I will be:
  • Launching a paid-for feature/course around my theme of wellbeing…
  • I will be publishing and launching a new ebook to go alongside those I’ve already published.  It’s already written but needs a few tweaks and we’re good to go…
  • I will be doubling my brand work and sponsored posts…
  • I will double my freelance work…
  • I will double all of my social media followers, so that’s YouTube, pinterest, instagram, g+, facebook, twitter
  • I will finish my kinesiology course…
  • I will launch a reiki distance healing service.  Being attuned to level 2, I’m really looking forward to this…
  • I will launch a Bespoke Crystals feature…
  • I will launch an on and offline wellbeing magazine…
  • I will double the amount of writing competitions I enter…
  • And I will continue with my linkys ~ #AllSortsofBlogs, #PositiveThinking, #HighlightsofHappy on instagram, #WonderfulWorldofWriting, #TheZenZing
Are you a writer who would like to get involved in the wellbeing magazine?  Or are you a brand interested in working with me?  Then drop me a line at virtuallyallsortsofeverything@gmail.com or tweet me @AllSortsHere

 

What would you like to see on my blog in the new year?  What have you enjoyed about my blog this past year?  I’d love to hear from you!  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere.

 

Thank you 🙂

What music puts a spring in your step? Share the vibe! ~ Positive Thinking

positivethinking-music-thought-bubble-vibe-vibration-good-mood

Do you listen to music in the morning?

(Or when you get up if you’re a shift worker!)

How about today?

When we have breakfast, we always have the radio on.  Usually the same station.

Except at weekends when we have a more upbeat station on because our weekday regular is often less upbeat.

We always have some kind of music wafting through the sound waves of our house!

It’s a no-brainer that feel-good music makes you feel, well, good!

And who doesn’t want to start their day in a good mood?

My advice is to be more conscious of what you listen to.  It could make or break the start of your day!

~

What did you listen to this morning?  Did it put a spring in your step?  What’s your favourite song to lift your mood?

I’d love to hear from you. Tweet me @AllSortsHere using the hashtag #PositiveThinking.

Let’s create a virtual wave of positivity!

#PositiveThinking is my monthly blog linky.

Link up any blog post with a positive and happy theme (and it’d be great if you could copy my badge below into your post).  Perhaps your positive thought could be connected to a goal you have in mind, something funny you’ve heard or something funny you’ve seen.  If it’s got a PositiveThinking theme, it works for this linky.  Old or new posts, it doesn’t matter – link up as many as you like.  

The linky door is always open.

~

Also join me on twitter.  Tweet anything positive and/or promote your positive blogpost (the one you link up!) with #PositiveThinking and include a direct tweet to me @AllSortsHere… I’ll share by retweeting.

Let’s get the positive vibrations going good and strong 🙂

Bags of Love

Little gives me greater pleasure or gives me a warmer, fuzzier feeling than our little girl and her daddy spending one-on-one time together.

Although I miss not being a part of it, I know it’s vital that they have this time together.

And then there’s hearing all about that special time from our little as she tells me (with great animation) of all the things they’ve done together!

Hearing it in her words, in her expression, hearing about her favourite parts is just simply priceless!

One moment like this came recently.  During a day out together, our little girl had chosen a bag for me (which hubby bought of course, thanks hubby!)

This was not just any bag, it was a bag chosen with love by our daughter.  In my favourite colour – turquoise!

I started using it straight away and it will always be special to me.  Our daughter chose a pink one and has prettied it up even more.

Here’s hers…

Hers tends to be used for storing and transporting loom bands and reams!

And mine?

It’s full of love and always will be!

~

What has your child given you that’s been full of love?   I’d love to hear in the comments below.  Or tweet me @AllSortsHere

Thanks

Why are these sweets so special?

When I collected our little girl from school on the penultimate day of year 1, she was clutching a little bag.  On it was a hand-written note from her teacher and inside it was a little bit like a party bag – with little gifts such as a notepad, stickers, pencils, rubbers, pens…

and a packet of sweets!

find-out-why-these-sweets-are-so-special-gesture-kindness-gift-present-kind-parenting

Everyone in the class got one of course and it was a really lovely gesture from the teacher.

A gesture that will remain in our daughter’s memory for years to come – she really did like her teacher and she helped her settle into her new school.

Over the summer we convinced her that life is ever-changing and getting a new teacher is a part of the ever-changing life.

When our daughter gave me one of her sweets, there were 2 left.

She decided she would give them to her cousins, who she dotes on.

How sweet is that?!…

What sweet things has your little one done?  I’d love to hear!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere
