Finding Inspiring People, Simply Inspirational!

black and white meI am actually struggling to name this one, if I am being totally honest, I am not 100% sure what it is about. Over the last couple of months I have been in contact with some extraordinary people, all of whom are local. They have all been striving for similar goals; most are self-employed; granted in some very different fields of work. But, they all help each other and find ways to work with one another making themselves and our local community so much stronger.

When I stepped in I thought to myself, I am an author… What could I possibly have to offer them? I forgot one of the key things in cross marketing. I need locations to do events, and the local cafes, like the fabulous Coffee Rio need a draw to bring in foot-traffic, so on, so forth. I need gimmick food, there is a fabulous bakery called Buttercream Bakery who can supply that, and in return they get sales, recognition and repeat business, as do Coffee Rio…

However all this transcends mere business arrangements, I have had so much support emotionally from everyone there and I could not begin to tell you what an incredible group of people I have stumbled upon. I don’t mind admitting that public speaking is not my strong point, but there I am in a safe environment where I can hone that skill and learn how to deal with it.

I walked into Networking hoping that it would help me make sales and meet some good connections and people, but doubting that it was where I needed to be. I have never been so wrong… If you find the right group to network in, like I have with Love Hinckley and The Atkins Networking Group Hinckley, they sky is the limit on what you can achieve.

I could carry on for days about the wonderful people who attend these networking meetings! However, it might be easier to show you…

The Stars and Moments that Guide Us…

black and white meDon’t fret I am not going to preach to anyone. No, this is more of an observation than anything else. Over the course of my life I have delved in an out of following my star-sign. They have always intrigued me, how is it that someone can know what an entire group of people are going to do based solely on their date of birth? It is impossible, yet some have been eerily close to the bone. My guess would be a numbers game; they are usually printed daily, I couldn’t begin to count how many people are in each star-sign eventually they would have to get it right… Right? Although it still freaks me out when they do!

 

The point I am making is recently I have found myself in a wonderful situation; I have nothing health wise left to worry about, I don’t have to fight anymore for treatment and have been getting help for a physical disability. But here is what has thrown me; as incredible as this feeling is, after years of fighting one way or another to get treatment or just get up in the morning having life run do smoothly so suddenly has left me lost. Where do I put all this energy into? And for the first time in years I found myself looking at my star-signs.

 

Please do not get me wrong I am doing anything but complain! This is right up there with getting married, it is just after so long of pushing for this and never really believing it would happen I never thought to prepare myself for what to do when it did.

 

The moments that lead me to this point stick out so clearly in my mind, I can trace it back years. I spent most of yesterday laughing hysterically, uncertain if I could believe it had happened then I realised that one thing after another had lined up and helped me to progress. If I hadn’t of found a certain bit of information, if I hadn’t of gone to a certain doctor, if I hadn’t of met my husband, or walked into Coffee Rio.

 

Now, I should explain two things… I am an atheist; however I have such strong respect for those who have the capability to believe in something bigger than them. I lost that a long time ago. I do however have a theory on how I would like to live. I try to respect others (no matter their colour, belief or age), I do try to understand other people’s points of view, even when I don’t agree with them, and I do everything to the best of my ability. This way I regret nothing. I do fail at this sometimes but that’s why I have learned how important these things are to me.

 

I don’t expect everyone to follow in my path, or read this and say ‘That is how I should be’. Everyone has to find their own way to their own way of life.

 

The second thing I should say and this is probably the reason I am on such a high today is that yesterday afternoon after over three years of pushing for it I finally got the go ahead for an unorthodox treatment for the condition I have. So I am feeling a little reflective today. Alongside this after two surgeries and a hand full of physiotherapists I have found a specialist to treat the physical symptoms of another condition, my book release is due out soon and I have been happily married for two and a half months…. I have met some incredible new friends and am finally in a totally good space.

 

I hoped in sharing this I could spread a little hope and joy today.

Mind, Body, and Surroundings…

black and white meOver the last week I have been thinking a lot about how our mind, body and surroundings effect how we work. For instance I cannot concentrate if I am in a bad mood, I ache, and the office is a tip… To even begin to try and write would be a futile and stressful experience. On the other hand though, if I am feeling positive, pain free, and everything around me is where I need it to be; I could lose an entire week to a project and not notice! So it begs the question… WHY?

I can’t speak for anyone else but I know the majority of the time my mind is running at a hundred miles an hour, just so it can keep up with story ideas, marketing ideas, deadlines, jobs, appointments and other important dates. I have, on several occasions been accused of not being able to ‘switch off’. If you too are like this I have one suggestion for you; music. It is such a calming influence on me; I don’t even need to pay attention to it. It is just there giving your sub-conscious mind something to focus on while you tap away on the computer.

Another thing I have found, very recently and most likely the cause for my train of thought is a type of Therapy called ‘EMMETT Therapy’, if you have any major aliments or pains from being sat at a desk for far too long then track down an EMMETT Therapist. It is non invasive and so relaxing, beyond that INSTANT Relief! It is a long term thing but if you are anything like me will feel the benefits right off the bat. I personally go to a place called Station Therapy in Hinckley which has an entire range of treatments from the EMMETT Therapy to Massage and Hypnotherapy if you are local I would suggest checking them out.

I could never understand the connection between my state of mind and surroundings. I always find they reflect one another, the better I feel the less chaos I live in. The less chaos I live in, the better I feel. Tapping into this I would suggest have your work space as you need it, not as others would deem it tidy. If your mind works better surrounded by loose paper then that is how your office should be! I have a working system which will look odd to others.

I personally believe in order for anyone to work efficiently they need their mind, body and surroundings in balance with one another. For those employing others that is making sure that their work force are happy, healthy and in good surroundings that work for them. For those who work for themselves the same applies but it is down to you to taylor it to your own needs. Take breaks, enjoy a social life, don’t ignore that nagging pain and make your work space work for you!
