Why making time for you is a must!


Sometimes the noise of life gets in the way. Sometimes we take on too much. Or sometimes we are just too in demand. And maybe we love that for a time, but without a break, you can have a meltdown and reach burnout!

In this video I explain why making time for you is a must, not an option but a must!

Have you ever reached burnout? How did you deal with it? I love to read you, so please comment below!

Until next time, stay very quirky and write soon

21 Again! You Get To Choose Yours!


 

Well today (24th of April), I get to be 21 again. See I am a huge believer in mindset being the key to success and happiness and that we get to choose:

  • Our mindset age.
  • The way we live our life.
  • Our own happiness.
  • And ultimately everything that comes from us.

For the past few years I have been getting younger in mindset and last year I decided to be 21 in mindset, and had my 21st mindset birthday in Disneyland Paris! I also had a Toy Story decorated room which made me super excited! I miss that place so much and really wished I could be back there again, it was at one with my soul and I felt totally at peace there. Lights, camera, action, noise – that makes me feel peaceful and incredibly happy, I like being different to everyone else and I enjoy noise and that type of environment. Actually it was very peaceful around the lake when walking back to my hotel on site at night. It was fabulous to be out at night and experiencing the reflection of the lights on the water and being able to walk on my own feeling very safe and happy, and that everyone there was singing from the same hymn sheet and just wanted to enjoy life and be happy and experience the magic, beauty, and wonder of it all.

If you missed my video last year of my highlights, here it is again!

For the previous two years prior to the last – so 2015/2016, I was 23 in mindset age, so I skipped a year, or rather I made a conscious decision to be 23 years for 2 years on the trot. I considered being 22 this year, but for now, I am very happy to stick with my 21st mindset that works so well for me. Oh and yes, in case you were wondering, I mostly get attracted to much younger in birth certificate age guys, in their 20s, and as one of my blogging friends Ralph has found a much younger true love and is going to be married soon, there is hope for me to find my asexual true love, but right now I am happy being single and living life to the max, whatever happens! Oh, and I don’t like marriage for me. I really am keen on my single life right now, just I am super romantic – but as I have been on more self-dates lately and got plenty to do, I am happy!

If you missed my video from Disneyland Paris 2014 trip of the elephant in the Rainforest Cafe, here it is again.

It’s the most popular video on my www.youtube.com/quirkybooksTV channel!

You Have The Power Within You! Motivational/Inspirational Poem By Sandra Bellamy LIVESTREAM!


 

IMG_3567

You Have The Power Within You was the first Motivational/Inspirational poem I have done on a LiveStream – check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below??

Everbody has the power within them to achieve great things, I always remember what Entrepreneur, Author and Speaker, Brendon Burchard say, “honour the struggle” and “your current circumstances do not dictate your future” – this is true! In 2018, I am going to be an online course trainer for myself, teaching others personal and professional development stuff, as well as getting other experts onboard – cannot wait! Super excited about that!!

I have had a lot of challenges over the past couple of months:

  • Redundancy from my day job of 5 years that I enjoyed (everything happens for a reason)
  • 10 websites hacked – only just got every one of them back to some form of normality last week! ( Learnt a ton about websites security and using CPanel/File Manager, MyPHP Admin, MySQL, and more of a pro now, so hopefully it won’t happen again with the amount of security I now have in place on each site) and my completely new websites www.sandrabellamy.com and www.sandrabellamy.co.uk that I rebuilt from scratch, are looking good! Check them out and let me know what you think in the comments below please??
  • Split up with my first asexual boyfriend I ever had as he was no good for me and turned out not to be the loving and smitten person with me, that I thought he was! Now looking forward getting a more trustworthy guy for me and one who values my worth, or staying single forever, but hugely career focused for the next year – 2018!
  • Commercial printer (only printer I have, out of action for a month – finally got it working again in the last week!)
  • Appliance I bought was safety recalled (got a better model at no extra charge, and difference in cost with the higher insurance paid for me)
  • Have done no more work on Fibro book since being made redundant and I have people wanting to buy it (have connected online with more Fibro sufferers though, who may end up buying it)

I have decided to live more as ‘quirky’ me since being made redundant and sleep in the day and work throughout the night now usually – great for the soul and far more productive – If I get a ‘normal’ job it will be hard, as I love my life so much right now, in this moment, and forever – but I need money coming in! So we shall have to see what destiny holds for me. I am not afraid of hard work and do that every day almost – apart from the odd day if I see a friend! Even then, if I can squeeze work in then I will!! But next year needs to be more implementation, risk taking, and far more productive for me. Next year, will be my year to shine! Watch this space!

As always, stay quirky and write soon

ALWAYS COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS – A HEART’S A HEART!!


ALWAYS COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS – A HEART’S A HEART!! No matter what happens in life, always count your blessings. My Snow guinea pig has a rare condition where her tongue is attached to her cheeks!! And from now on she needs to have 3 operations a year and check-ups every 2 months. So now I am working extra hours in my day job – 6 days a weeks throughout promotional periods to pay for it, because the insurance company will only pay up to a maximum of half this year and may exclude it from my Snow guinea pig’s insurance completely next year, when it is due for renewal. On average Snow has got another 4 years of potential life left in her and in-between treatments she is happy, playful, and eating/drinking. So I choose to work more hours, so she can live, otherwise she dies. It has taken some adjusting to, but she is worth every penny and a heart is a heart, no matter whether it is covered in fur or skin!

How My Guinea Pig Chestnut Inspires Me! – Chestnut’s Second Birthday – Video 1


I have had a full on week of webinars and training – I am currently doing the YouTube Success Bootcamp, and I also fell over and cut/bruised my knee, so I have been getting over that. It’s still sore, but I can walk normally and have rested it today, as well as jigging on the spot, mostly using my upper body to music – while doing the washing up – well, inbetween! Always be quirky!

To let you know:

I am currently on vacation from my day job to work on finishing and publishing my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book, in e-Book format, by the end of next week. I am still teaching on Monday and plan to have that afternoon off, but every other day, it’s all hands on deck. It took me hours today, to find the last version or my manuscript to read. It’s 174 pages and I have more to add! So I will be extremely busy tomorrow and for the days to come. It’s one year ago since my Grandma died on the 13th of June, so that is a little sad, but she was/is amazing, and every day I feel her support of my work, to live my dreams.

I read ” How Life Works” by author Andrew Mathews, last night and finished reading it today. It’s most insightful about what we think, is to do with what we feel, and what we feel, is the reality we create for ourselves. It’s true, although a huge challenge to change some bad habits.

Andrew was an Author I saw at the Success 2015 seminar – From the National achievers’ Congress. He signed 3 books of his that I bought, and I had my photo taken with him. I haven’t uploaded that one yet. I am still catching up on blog posts. This video is from April 23rd!! So very busy with work, work, work!

Keep embracing your quirky and tell me what you think of my video?
