Second in a series of posts to increase confidence and self-esteem

As part of my daily prayers and rituals I set an intention to remember I’m a Freakin’ Goddess. Throughout the day I visualise myself stepping into my power and imagine my guides, guardians and angels surrounding me; protecting me and guiding me in all that I do. It is an incredible feeling. I set an alarm on my phone that says, “Remember you’re a freaking Goddess!” as an extra reminder. Sometimes I even sing, “Remember You’re a Goddess” to the tune of ‘Remember You’re a Womble”, which my partner Andy, aka Mr Sexy Pants (MSP), seems to find amusing.

Self-worth and bit pics

Self-worth and bit pics

Bit pics and how they are linked to a Woman’s Self-Worth

When I was single, I never ceased to be amazed by men sending me pictures of their bits. I’ve been in a relationship for over six years now but my single, and recently single friends, tell me bit pics are still very much a thing. I do not want to see pictures of my boyfriend’s bits, let alone a random stranger from Tinder or Plenty of Fish.

Practicing Gratitude

How practicing gratitude can help you achieve Happiness

Practicing gratitude is great way to achieve Happiness. As my friend and previous life coach, Katrina Love once said to me, “you can’t be in fear and gratitude at the same time”. When we practice gratitude on a regular basis it helps us reprogramme our brain. The more we practice gratitude we find that our brain starts automatically noticing things we can be grateful for.

“Sam Brook and Graham have quite a bit in common. They were both born and raised in strict religions, and left them behind when they were still quite young.

Sam now helps other people to be happier through The Happiness Club.

This is an incredible story. I got the impression that there is much more, so we may well do a second interview. ” – Graham Frost, Heart-Shaped Decisions Podcast.

Journaling

Journaling is great for problem solving and decision making. I find it particularly helpful if I’m stressed about something or if I’ve got lots of thoughts chasing around my head.

There’s something quite cathartic about journaling. I think of it as a tool similar to Dumbledore’s pensieve. Putting my thoughts down on paper, gets them out of my head. It creates room in my head and gives it a chance to breathe. It’s almost a kind of meditation. Julia Cameron, author of the Artist’s Way and creator of Morning Pages, suggests journaling or Morning Pages first thing in the morning before meditating. This practice helps to clear our heads.

Tapping for Self-Esteem

Tapping for Self-Esteem

I want to share my experience of Tapping for Self-Esteem. From what I’ve seen low self-esteem is one of the biggest things holding us back. It manifests as fear, worry, anxiety, depression, procrastination, a need for approval, judgement, undue concern about what others think, imposter syndrome and much more. This issue has come up for me time and time again over the last year and I’m determined to beat this once and for all.

My part in the Egyptian Revolution – Positivity Podcast

my part in the Egyptian Revolution

Listen to my interview about my part in the Egyptian Revolution on the Positivity Podcast with Andrew Culture.

I throughly enjoyed recording it and listening to it. I loved that I found it interesting even though it was about me and it made me laugh!

“Sometimes a podcast guest doesn’t quite turn out to be what I expect them to be.

When this happens it is often a delight, but not always.

I booked Sam Brook for an interview to talk about her ‘Happiness Club’ project. But before we got into that discussion I wanted to find about a little bit more about the background of my guest. This is where things took a quite shocking and unexpected turn.

Sam disclosed that she took part in the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. Not only was she there, she was also one of a handful of Western journalists who wrote about the unfolding events for news websites and blogs. Continue reading “My part in the Egyptian Revolution – Positivity Podcast”
