Day 103 of 182
Sunday 17th May
Well I don’t usually blog on a Sunday but after my last post where I had been a bit down and emotional I wanted to fill you in on what’s been happening.
I'm back feeling amazing. These ten small but mighty rules really work.
I spent all day Friday a little up and down one minute I’d feel good then my mood would dip, a tired sadness would come over me. I didn’t do any work made some handmade cards with Jess- being creative is such a great way to lift emotions- then my Mum rang and I started to cry on the phone. She asked “are you a little overwhelmed with everything that’s happening?”
That’s it. I was. So much has happened so quickly. All amazing but I hadn’t given myself the time to process it, I’d been so busy giving since the day of the talk and I had neglected to give back to me.
Rule #3 be kind to me.
This one is so important, what you put into yourself you get back and I had been busy talking, blogging and giving advice so eager and enthusiastic to pass on what I have learned to others that I forgot about me.
If you think of yourself as a car but instead of putting in petrol you fill yourself up with good feelings gratitude, love, laughter you can do this in any number of ways (my ten rules come in very handy here!) but if you don’t fill up the tank you break down and when that happens the negative emotions self-doubt, anger, anxiety take the opportunity to pounce.
That’s what happened I was empty. So I had an early night on Friday and woke yesterday feeling like me again. Spent a lovely afternoon with the kids and family. Chatting, laughing and feeling completely relaxed. Home to Britain’s got Talent on the T.V and another early night. It is so important to tend to your own wellbeing first- it is not selfish. On Wednesday when I was down I didn’t want to be with the kids or Christian, I didn’t want to cook, talk just wanted to be on my own but by making an effort to feel good I was back to me and it benefits everyone I meet.
Woke this morning at 6am, felt energetic so caught up on some emails. Being so aware of how I want to treat my body the way it deserves to be treated I’ve decided to cut down on the amount of sugar and processed foods I eat and bring back cleanclub my online clean eating programme (so I can have some company for the ten days of no sugar!!).
Excitedly looking up recipes on Rozanna Purcell’s (Healthy snickers cheesecake anyone?) and Rosanna Davidson websites between them alone my kitchen will be a hive of healthy activity.
I almost worried about what people would think, would they think I was just finding another way to obsess about food. But no I’m not worrying because I know that this is for the right reasons and another part of being kind to me.
I haven’t talked too much about the Law of Attraction in the blog so far.
“When you become aware of this great law, then you become aware of how incredibly powerful you are, to be able to THINK your life into existence” Rhonda Byrne
For a number of reasons. One being that the book The Secret http://thesecret.tv/
does the job of explaining it very well so if you want to know more in depth I would definitely recommend reading it. There is more to it than just sitting back thinking of what you want and it falling in your lap but this has never been about me trying to prove anything or say I’m right and someone else is wrong. I’m telling you honestly what is happening to me and it doesn’t really matter whether you agree that the Universe has played a part in this or I’ve done it alone. The result is the same and it’s phenomenal.
In my experience that what you think about you bring about, when I think negative thoughts and feel bad it brings more of the same. When I think positive thoughts and feel good feelings I bring more good into my life.
I visualize the things I want to happen and they do. I visualized myself as carefree living a life where an Eating Disorder didn’t control me, visualized myself standing on a stage talking about the experience.
Rule #1 Spend 5 minutes each night visualizing my future and the way I want to be until it is so clear it has already happened.
Personally as a mother, daughter friend, girlfriend it can’t get better than this. To feel so full of love and laughter each day, to feel carefree even when faced with negative situations or lack. Not taking life or myself so seriously anymore. I feel such abundance.
“A feeling that greater possessions, no matter of what kind they may be, will of themselves bring contentment or happiness is a misunderstanding. No person, place or thing can give you happiness. They may give you cause for happiness and a feeling of contentment but the joy of Living comes from within.”

Personally as a mother, friend, girlfriend it can’t get better than this to feel so full of love and laughter each day, to feel carefree even when faced with negative situations or lack. I feel so abundant.
So for the next 79 days (and beyond) I will be focusing on manifesting my external dreams the things that won’t give me happiness but a cause for happiness. Travelling to America, talking all over the world, meeting Rhonda Byrne, writing and publishing a book all these things will be an incredible bonus because I have all the things that money can’t buy.
My advice to me.
Visualize goals. Stay true to myself. Take only inspired action and Be Happy Now.
It’s working out very well. Lots of things have been happening – staying under wraps for the moment but included receiving a personal email from a member of the Secret team which included the words “I will be telling Rhonda all of the beautiful things you are doing.”
As always thank you so much for being a part of this exciting, life changing amazing journey I’m on. The blog has had almost 19,000 views since Feb without me doing anything other than writing it and sharing once a day on Facebook and Twitter.
This is only the Beginning.
