Free Your Books!


Free your books

I love this quote so much. Have you considered that your books may be imprisoned by you if you haven’t opened them for such a long time? Do you feel like your books are real, with a secret life of their own? And just like the film Toy Story, in which the toys come to life, your books come to life! If your books could talk to you, what do you think they would be saying to you right now? Please comment below!

Until next time, write soon and stay quirky

The Most Amazing Person To Be Is Yourself – Inspirational Quote By Sandra Bellamy Quirky Academy


Best person to be is you

People look externally to get their life to be ‘better’; to have more money, to look a certain way; to get people to believe they are this and that. They often go along with the masses, and react like a chameleon, and lose their sense of self in the process! They end up trying to replicate so many others so often, that they barely recognise themselves and then look for external gratification and reassurance that it is okay to be them (which is actually a made up version of lots of other people) – so who is them? Do they even know? ‘Why are you trying to be someone you are not?’ I think to myself, because when your life has ended, will these superficial people you follow and try to be like even care? Stop wasting your life and start living your own! There is no better person to be than yourself, because nobody does a better job of being you, no one else knows what you like, need, and want, more than you do, so only you have the power to make yourself the happiest being alive, and you don’t need anyone else to do that for you. The best role you can possibly get in your life, is that of being your true authentic self, and all you need is you, to see your life through!

Stay your quirky self my friend, live your life for you and love yourself, every day, just as you are, your whole life through!

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon

IT’S NOT SELFISH! Making You, Your Number one!


Not selfish quote -self love

It’s not selfish to put yourself first; to love yourself, and to make you your number one priority, it’s a necessity! People seem to have it in their heads that they have to be giving as that is part of loving others, and while they have a fair point, you need to have boundaries in place and not compromise yourself out of all recognition. In fact, you DON’T have to compromise yourself, as your needs should be your priority, so you must do what is overall best for you, as you are the one who has to live with yourself day in and day out! This means you need to  choose relationships and friendships that best compliment your personality, your life and lifestyle. Notice I said compliment, they don’t have to exactly match.

The thing is, if you end up giving, whilst not really living the life you want to lead, or doing anything you want to do, you will no longer feel connected to your own soul and this could have serious repercussions in your current and future relationships. You may feel resentful without meaning to be, you may feel confused about what you want, you may not know who you are!

This was me years ago, before my diagnosis of Fibro and now I come first. No more housework for a guy, if I get a boyfriend in the future. No more sex, as I now know I am asexual – not a sexual – and there are thousands of others like me around the globe! No more having to relationship compromise and put your partner first – no, I come first, if I had a partner, every single time. I live on my own, I am responsible for my bills and my rent and food in my belly, I still need to take care of me, he can look after himself, just like I can look after myself, I am a girl – not a mother and cleaner upper! This is not the conventional attitude, I know, but this is me! I don’t like cooking, cleaning and housework – and I also don’t like watching sport or TV – so I don’t! I live for me and that is fab. I also enjoy staying up until 2am or 4am in the morning. Of course I am caring, but that can be taken advantage of – so no more am I a doormat! No more do I have to think of others all the time. I have to focus on me more to be happy. And I can tell you from suffering with depression for most of my life prior to 2012, that this attitude is one that I should have adopted years ago as now I love jumping out of bed every day, even when life is tough. I love being alive, and I love life and living it my quirky and unconventional way! Do I feel a bit guilty sometimes – do I feel I will be judged as being bad and uncaring – yes, I do feel this sometimes, because I think it can sound cold and uncaring to be this way, (even though I am very kind and caring), as that is not what is traditionally expected – especially of a female! Will I change back – no, never. I am not saying I will never ever cook food for a guy, but I won’t make a habit of it, and I will set the record from the beginning my expectations. And yes, I want to remain living on my own, maybe forever. I love where I live, because I live on my own but in the middle of a house so have the best of both worlds!

So don’t ever feel selfish to self-date and take time out for you. The happier and healthier you are in your own right, the better off you will be for others. I am living proof of that. That is how I feel. I also know I can survive and thrive on life because of this. And don’t ever feel selfish living your life, your own quirky way! There is no way I would want to be at home watching TV and going to bed at a reasonable hour each day, and living a normal life – I would be so very bored, unmotivated, and feel older – I am young, quirky, 21st mindset me! The best way to be!

Always remember that I love you lots for being quirky you, and thanks always for your support and for stopping by my blog and touching my life, it means so very much xx

As always, stay quirky and write soon

Even though I don’t read romance or write it (I mostly write non-fiction), I am hugely romantic in my personality, so I relate to that genre personality really well – how about you? Do you think these are accurate or not?

As always, until next time, stay quirky and write soon.

Hello April! Stay Warm In Your Heart!


Welcome April

The UK weather was very cold in March, and particularly in my city of Exeter. It snowed twice in a couple of weeks and lasted a few days. The snow looked pretty, but particularly the 1st time, a lot of places were closed and there were tons of people at the supermarket afterwards, flocking to stock up on food again. This was the second bout of snow. Like the first bout, it stopped public transport so I could not see my dad for his birthday, 19th of March – so he had to have a second birthday 3 days later. I was worried about my girls, (guinea pigs), so was rushing around like a headless chicken both times to stock up on hay and food for them in case no shops were open.

Whatever the weather, I hope you stay warm in your heart.

Love of love, write soon and stay quirky

Book Quotes For Writers And Book Lovers! Why The Books I Write Are My Best Friends!


Book Quotes.blog-post-image

As a Writer and Author, I often feel like some of the books I write are my bestest friends, because just like a best friendship, I spend so long working on them and with them. My books know my secrets, and sometimes they even pass some of those onto others, but there are many secrets and parts of my life that they never share, because of the difficult experiences I went through when I wrote them that are personal to me. My books helped me to get through those difficult times, without revealing to the public what happened. They listen to me and raise me up when I am at my worst and they educate me when they speak of their own free will of expression. My Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book took me two and a half years to write and it really got me through some difficult times in my life and I will always be very thankful and grateful to it for that.

I sometimes think that books are the magic of life and I still think that, but I believe you can create your own magic in life and you can make dreams come true! I know I have made a lot of my own dreams come true in life, and I still strive to do that every single day of my life! If you want to be in a horse drawn carriage, you can hire one! If you want to have your own castle, you can build one. If you want to be a princess or prince, you can be the prince or princess of your own life, you can buy the outfit, learn out how act like one or be a quirky prince or princess, and even change your name to include prince or princess! (You’re tempted, I know). I have a dress that I call my princess dress, because I feel like it is one, and I feel like a Disney Princess in it!

Have you ever felt that the books you write or read are your best friends?

How do you create magic in your own life?
