When you’r feel you’re hanging on the vine,
remember- a seed push forth a mighty sign.
You must take the sunbeams and treasure what’s thine
Wild Kansas City is but one destination on the sign
Take hope, light and lose the animosity ,
for inside there is no monstrosity
Get yourself caught speeding in high velocity.
It’s not a train smash — no not a catastrophe.
When you’re stuck in the middle of time.
Jump off the fence ‘cos that’s doing yourself a crime.
Don’t you let commoners think your words cannot define,
Your value , worth and dreams are not benign
Take it from the apple tree
He allows fruit to aid in his victory .
oh don’t , hide yourself like a willow tree
Cry, but remember you have a destiny.
Everything will be fine — look up — allow the clouds to throw some shapes.
Open them wide , mind expand — understand the lessons from life’s true greats.
You’re already one them-slightly chipped — still most valuable of porclain plates.
Never doubt what you can do — take a leaf from natures golden ratio
You radiate when you guide the fates.
Lets’ lasso this up and keep your spirit wild
Grow tall — never lose your inner child.
A silly poem to spread to the crowd
Accept her quirks — light hearted ,silly sap — never lose a day when she has smiled.
*I’m feeling less heavy hearted and more like my old self these days. I was inspired by the song ‘This little light of mine’. live, love, don’t hold as grudge. Remain true to who you are and you won’t stand alone for long.
A song a mate shared with me. Happy vibes. I defy you not to feel happy listening to this.
“I know what it is like to seemingly have everything and feel I have nothing. I know what it feels like to seemingly have nothing and know I have everything”
It’s official I’m 35 years old .
I could be down and think about all the negatives about my youth being pruned out of my very ‘ raison de etre ‘
I could count my blessings and come up with 35 reasons today is a day worth celebrating.
I woke up to my 5-year-old daughter singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me.
I have a husband that I know loves me and treats me like a Goddess not only on my birthdays but every day of the year.
I have an amazing Mum -who loves me with all my heart and always wants me to be happy and succeed.
My Nan is another of my greatest supporters. She shows me that I don’t have to grow old and be a conventional Granny. I can party and have fun living.
My beautiful cat ,Tatiana- has started sleeping with us again. Finally forgiven me for having a human child (only took her 5 years to get used to the idea).
I’ve met so many awesome people by starting my Blog in September 2015- it is a pleasure to know you and your stories.
I’m more confident in myself.
I am still learning- every day- life is always teaching me something.
I know the value of family and true friends- my Gran is still alive.
I know that we all have our problems and that we all make mistakes.
I know that life is for living and moving forward.
I know my faults but more importantly, I know my qualities and assets.
I have music in my life and the ability to write -I am able to express myself.
I know that I’m blessed to have a roof over my head.
I am ambitious but not greedy – materialistic things can always be replaced -people can’t.
I know that no matter how many times I have wanted to give up -I couldn’t- I am a fighter.
I love with all my heart and I say what’s on my mind and I know I can be too blunt but I do come from a good place.
I have been able to repair and renew relationships or at least try to.
I am able to walk, use my arms, talk, sing ( not well) ,dance and be..
I am still alive! (after everything I have experienced in my life and use it to inspire myself ,motivate myself and share my story of Hope).
I feel. I cry ,I laugh, I get mad, I get horny ,I get happy , I get sad.
I’m a good person, my heart is in the right place- most of the times. 😉
I make other people laugh.
I have am proud of my roots and heritage and I know where I come from.
I want others around me to succeed.
Each year that passes I become more grateful for who I have in my life.
I’m only 35 and learned a hell of a lot – bumped my head loads of times but I have learned and willing to still learn.
I’m healthy -ish.
I stand my beliefs and I also get that not everyone has the same beliefs and values as me. As long as people don’t hurt me or others then I am happy to leave them to their way of thinking.
Flowers make me happy -I have a beautiful bouquet next to me from my mom.
I know I am in charge of my happiness
I am not who I was 10 years ago, 5 years ago or even yesterday. I evolve and change.
I have purpose and goals.
I’m full of flaws just like you!
I’m excited to see what I can achieve in the next 35 years.
Life is keeping me super busy. I spent all day grading vintage jewellery yesterday.
La Familia is starting a business. We are part Russian. We stick together forever. Till death do us part -aaaaargh! 😀
Feeling silly and giddy.
I always do when I have a load on. I think its a self-defence mechanism .
I’ve been super busy looking at online websites and getting my business mind grooving,
My Bella Bee has been having nightmares about monsters for the past 4 nights.
Super- uber, bad nightmares.
Smelly boys have been telling my daughter that monsters are going to come to her bed at night.
( sung in Phoebes voice ‘smelly cats’ from Friends’)
‘Smelly boys smelly boys,
news alert, your parents dont love you!
Smell boys smelly boys.
You have tiny pricks
Smelly boys ,smelly boys.
You make me sick.’
Cramming in swotting up and getting an Edu Kash un 😉
Go Daisy! Go, Daisy, I’ve got this. I am successful in everything I do’ – I am my own personal mascot.
Today the weather is dismal .

Nominate 11 Bloggers
Ask 11 Questions off your own
4THERACE Q&A TIME
1. What are the 5 best films of the decade thus far (so that’s 2010-2016)?
I’m going by what I have seen ( state the obvious why don’t I?!)
Absolutely Fabulous – the movie!
The Get down ( it is a series but I am hooked. My inner teen has a TINY crush on the wordsmith.
(through gritted teeth) I enjoyed watching ‘Suicide Squad’– in my defence, I think it was the soundtrack that swayed me 😀
The conjuring two. – creepy.
Lucy – what a find!
2.Favourite French Film? If you don’t have one, then favorite foreign language film?
It has to be ‘La vie en Rose’ I love Edith Piaf. Her music brings me to tears.
3. If you could only watch 5 films for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Bell Vue rendezvous
Alice in Wonderland ( 1950’s Disney version)
Water for Elephants
Natural Born Killers
4.What do you have to say about modern cinema?
I’m not really a film connoisseur. I do like my indie/independent films. I like going to the cinema. – Does that count? The cinema experience is fun – warm popcorn, surround sound.
5. Anime. Yes or No? Why?
I’ve watched a few bits and bobs when my husband watches them .I think they are unique, I guess I should give it a proper watch and then make a decision. If I did that I would be condoning my husbands taste in a genre – ha ha!
6. What is a television show that you would suggest to anyone?
Anyone? I was going to shout ‘American Horror story’ but not everyone is into so-called horror. I’ve just finished watching season five of ‘Once upon a time’ – it’s really opened my imagination and helped generate my writing.
7.What do you admire most about the WordPress blogosphere?
The people. The community- without it I don’t think I would still be Blogging.
8.What inspired you to write your blog?
WOW! erm… nobody in particular. I just set a goal and said I am going to write a Blog and I did it and that’s it. I have found inspirational bloggers on here that have kept me going. I love a challenge.
9.What would you like to see your blog evolve into (if you want it to evolve)?
I want to link more of my real life endeavors with my Blog -one would be my volunteering. I would like to be able to help people help themselves with certain programmes I have done and trained on. I am in two minds about sharing my vintage jewellery business on here. I may have a link on this Blog, in the future, to my online shop. I don’t want this Blog to be a marketing merchandise blog.
10. What is a blog here on WordPress that you would recommend to anyone and why?
I would have to say Jason from Harsh reality. He is successful. He has writing talent. He uses his blog as a platform to help promote new writers with their books. He is funny. He is not afraid to put his opinion out there.
11. What advice would you give to someone who doesn’t know what they want to do in the future?
Blog wise? mmm, I would say start with what is going on in your life. That is how I started my Blog. My blogs content evolves with what I do in my Life. I like that about my Blog. I like to see it evolving. I don’t like stagnation. I like movement. I like to dance and keep on the go.
THANK YOU FOR THIS NOMINATION.

BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL AND HAVE A GRAND WEEK WHEREVER YOU ARE.
First day down with Blogging Challenge A-Z – oh yeah, baby!
It was hard finding out about what animals go through but I followed through and stayed true to my beliefs and my style of telling it, how I see it. Only 25 more days to go.
I’m the cow that jumped over the sun and the moon because today I got my pack to train to become an on line moderator with #SickNotWeak.
I found out that the Eating disorder group I was hoping to have made some progress with is not happening until at least Autumn . Spring has now turned to Autumn -these things happen?
That’s just the way life rolls sometimes
I have a lot of ambition and there are too many people with Eating disorders who need help and support form each other, in the place I live. I’m a woman on a mission.
SEE THIS FACE ?
THIS IS THE FACE OF A PERSON WHO IS:
What I mean to say is this:
I can only be myself! I don’t and won’t ever want to be anybody but me.There is no better way to be.
Looks like I made a major faux pas a few weeks ago. It has to do with this blog of mine . I’ve got a meeting coming up. My views are wanted, so I can only go in with an open mind and hope to get some kind of clarification on my role ,if any ,I play on the path I am currently on .
I know how to speak up for myself and I also am not afraid to put my hands up and say I am wrong when/if I am.
I have so many other opportunities to look forward to. I can’t wait to share them with you.
I’ve got loads of research to do for zeeeeeeee challenge. I’m making lots of lovely connections with fellow bloggers.
I’ve had epic work outs
ZEEEEEEEEEEEEE vedding is merely weeks away. My mother is my angel and fairy Godmother. She is making sure my wedding day is going to be unforgettable. I have my Nan and my Uncles in Miami who want to help out in whatever way they can and I am blessed.
Life can change in an instant. I know. I live my life. It may seem shit and like you are making mistakes and feel like a bad person or whatever is going on in your life but usually life changes for a reason and it is up to you to decide how you are going to play that change.
My Nan has bought my Bella Bee her dress for the wedding. We get a date night on Saturday. 😀
So that’s it really……
Have an Epic weekend.
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward #FollowGreatFootsteps
WHY HAVE I CHOSEN THIS QUOTE?
It’s straight forward. I went to bed last night feeling not enough.
Not talented enough.
Think of a bucket full of negative thoughts- it had my name on it. I went to bed to shut out my ‘not enough s’ – I didn’t want to hear it.
I do have enough and I am enough.
My Ma and my partner and me have worked hard on what is going to be a beautiful wedding day
I have the strength in my body to do the things I want. My body never lets me down
My mind is able to think, express and help me do things like write and blog
I wake up each day and I have at least one new person reaching out to me through my blog and making new connections – I find it mind blowing. I reach back
In my real life I have people to share good times and bad times with and people who reach out to little old me
I get to volunteer for causes close to my heart and go on training sessions
I also am getting the chance to do training sessions on become an on-line moderator with #SickNotWeek soon
I get so much feedback from each person who notices me in this vast blog-sphere
I’m able to relate and empathise and feel and express my feelings with no shame
My partner makes me a cup of coffee every morning
My beautiful daughter is the most compassionate, funny, smart little four year old I know and she LOVES me.
People accept me for who I am and I do the same whole heartedly
People on-line and off put their trust in me and I will never betray them
I get to learn everyday in the real world and my blogging world
These are just a few reasons why I am blessed. So thank you..
I take notice of every action expressed. I don’t forget. I feel part of a community on here. I love getting to know such an array of different personalities and the blogs you put out here. I love where I am in my my life and how it is moving forward in a way that I am at peace with.
So that’s it. I’m just a grateful weed who turned her face to the sun and blossomed because of the people in my on line life and my real life.
