Stop worrying about what other’s think and start living your life! It’s not your job to worry about what other’s think of you, it’s your job to live your life. Years ago I was diagnosed with GAD, now I don’t give a stuff what other’s think. The clock is ticking. Don’t stop your life for other’s, start living and embrace your quirky!
IT’S TEMPORARY! – POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING! Have you ever felt so ill you feel like you are dying? That is it a catastrophe and your world is ending! But the truth is you are not dying, you have a virus and you will be better again! You have to think to yourself, this is temporary; it will pass, otherwise, what is the alternative if you don’t?
I currently have a virus that has lead to a chest infection. My boss has kindly let me take a day’s holiday this week, along with my two days off, so I can get 3 days of rest! That I need. Of course resting to me, is getting some sleep, but also watching educational videos, writing blog posts, and working out precisely what my future holds and entails, and my destiny – that being, I really do want to create an ebook store full of my own books for your personal and professional development across multiple genres, and also video training courses. All my mind keeps saying to me, is; ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write”; to the point where it is now making feel ill that I am not doing it enough and not listening as much as I should be to myself. My inner voice is screaming this is what you should be doing right now and forever – so why have I just become in this state? And why don’t I just get on with it?
Because my mind has been considering many options of how to make money online during these past few weeks, in order to provide for my future, as I have to look after myself financially. I have literally been reading up, researching, and attending live webinars and other online training for hours, as I know to make a full-time career out of writing, is one of the toughest roads to ever take; if you are writing from your heart and your own stuff that will also appeal to others! I want to remain true to my authentic, quirky self, while providing books that others need! It can be a dilemma – or is it that I am making it a dilemma?
I keep coming back to my roots of writing because when I think of following in the footsteps of others, buying their programmes, their courses, if it is not to do with writing and the writing I like to do, all my mind keeps saying is – when are you going to have time to write? You can’t not write, to not write actually makes me feel sick now. It’s like I am stretching my writing creativity so thinly by not writing and producing more books when the momentum is there to do it, that it is painful and sore, like a wound. But what to do? As I have 18 Live and fully functional websites to work on and maintain, how can I look after them, design more T-Shirts that I need to design and still keep writing lots of new stuff! Yes, I said new stuff, because the truth is, since publishing my Twitter book and discovering how well it is selling, sometimes with little or no promotion on my part, it means there is a market for the type of books I want to write – or at least in that genre. It is already outselling my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book that I spent 2 and a half years writing. How long do you think it took me to write my Twitter book and publish it to Amazon Kindle? Well, as I already had some of the content from previously teaching it to my Twitter for Recovery students – 27 days!! Yes, I said 27 days! Is that a miracle or what!! It is far less expensive than my redundancy book to buy, so I need to sell a lot more to get close to even one sale of my redundancy book, but the main thing is, I am getting my name out there as a writer, doing something I love and helping a ton of people in the process.
People don’t understand that writing is a part of my soul that I cannot live without! It is my therapy, my love of my life (guinea pigs are too) and the best of me. It’s helped me through the worst of times and if it was in the form of a person, I would be writing; if it were a being of it’s own; I would be a Sandra Bellamy writing being – which is what I actually am! Okay, so I am glad and grateful for a physical body that I have grown to love and care for and I would never want to be dead, but alive forever- yes, I said forever, if I could, I would – particularly if I didn’t age!
So my destiny is to have lots of Kindle books published and some training courses via my Quirky Books sites and Quirky Academy sites, and a fair few of my others too – it’s a huge challenge for me! I have been getting better at writing and publishing on Kindle, and found that sometimes publishing shorter books can be more beneficial than publishing longer books, both for me and the recipient. However, my new ‘Asexual Perspectives, Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Diversity’ book, looks like it is going to be huge, as I have interviewed around 40 asexuals across the globe for it, and one person’s answers is 19 pages long! So I still want to publish longer books where there is a need for it, even though it is mega time-consuming, if it’s going to change lives it will be worth it!
I am thinking about doing a follow up Twitter book, because I think there is a need for it! So much writing to do, so little time, and after all that, being quirky, I still want to learn about other stuff! And there is the head-banging moment, when you realise, you need to keep learning stuff too, in order to write more books, leaving less time for writing, but a bigger brain capacity to take in more information to hopefully write more books! I would say it’s a chicken and egg situation, but rather a book and brain situation! I think this has been one of THE longest posts I had written for a long time, especially about writing and my love of it. This blog is where it all started for me, and whatever happens, this blog will run to the end of my time and hopefully stay around even more! The good thing about writing and publishing non-fiction books on Amazon, is that I will continue to help others even when I am no longer in person to do so, and leave a lasting legacy, that makes life so fulfilling, so satisfying, and so worthwhile.
Until next time my friends, thank you for your continued support, I love you all and think you are incredible and amazing!

I am very happy and excited to have been chosen to meet Her Majesty the Queen, at St James’s Palace, on Monday 15th of July.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may already know this and a few of you I have mentioned it to in my comments. For the rest of my lovely blog followers, the last update I gave you, was that I had been invited to St James’s Palace in the presence of HM the Queen. I have since had a letter to say I have been chosen to meet HM the Queen.
I have been sent a map of the inside of the Palace and have been told I am group 10, in the Queen Anne Room, to meet the Queen.
There is a red dotted line to indicate which route HM the Queen will take.
There are instructions of what I should say and do when I meet HM the Queen.
I am going there, to celebrate CSV (Community Service Volunteers) 50th anniversary. I do voluntary work as a Health Buddy for CSV and got nominated by my Manager to go.
If someone had told me a few years ago, that in the future I would be meeting HM the Queen at St James’s Palace, I would have laughed and said they had a vivid imagination, or yes, in my dreams. But I did something very important in my life, I changed my attitude and my belief in myself.
When I was made redundant for the second time in my life, in 2009, this was the starting point of that change. I knew from then on, that I was born 100% to write and to help others who have been made redundant to get back into work. It was the start of my creative journey. However, needing money and taking on a succession of temporary jobs, that I wasn’t happy in, took it’s toll, and although I still had these goals in mind, I didn’t do much about them at that time.
By the end of 2009, I got a job as an Assistant Manager of a shop and a couple of months later I was promoted to Shop Manager. The drawback was, most weeks I would be working 60 hours a week instead of my contracted 40.
In October 2010, I got headhunted to work as a Sales Person for more money doing less hours and so I took it. After almost a year of working there, I decided to take a year out from work, to develop myself, my skills, my knowledge and expertise to grow as a person and to finally fulfil my destiny of writing and helping others to get back into work. During that time, I gained all of those and so much more.
Although I am working again in a retail sales job during the day, I have chosen to be in a job as a Sales Person not as a Manager, so my hours are stable and kept to a minimum. The pay is not great but I can focus on building two businesses around my two goals during the evenings and my time off. I now know what action to take to make progress with those two goals. I still have time to do courses and to develop myself as a person. I am continuing on the path to fulfil my dreams and you can do it too. I am living proof that dreams can come true. Never, ever, give up on your own dreams. Believe they are achievable and that anything is possible.
Be blessed with what you have,
fight for what you want,
believe in yourself,
helps others along the way,
change when you are able to
and never look back.
Keep looking forward because your future is in your hands.
Treat yourself kindly,
look after those who are important in your life,
allow yourself ups and downs,
you are only human.
Above all, love yourself, live life to the max and do what makes you happy over and over again.
Staying positive in this current economic climate can be extremely difficult, especially when the daily news seems to bring nothing but doom and gloom. However, one simple thing could help you on your way to becoming a more positive person.
Smiling, simple but true!
Smiling, puts other people at ease, it lets them know you are approachable.
A smile can break the ice with a stranger and lead to new found friendships.
Your usual tone of voice is lowered whilst on the telephone, smiling on the telephone allows your tone to become higher and sound more welcoming.
Even if you are feeling fed up, depressed and really don’t want to smile, try it, a little bit at a time, you will be surprised how focusing on something else which contradicts your current frame of mind, could actually be a step in helping you to get out of the poor frame of mind you are in.
If someone smiles back at you, it will make you happier and increase your confidence.
