Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 167 – Rewrite, Right?

She believed she could, so she did.”

R.S Grey

Lovely quote Spidey!

It’s easy to be filled with self-doubt, presuming your dreams are not attainable.

But what if you could change that?

What if all it took was the belief that you could?

If you have that belief that you can achieve, you are already halfway there.

I’m holding on to that belief that my book will become a reality.

And in time, I am sure it will happen, and I’ll make it a success.

That is my belief anyway!

Tell me about one of your dreams, and something you really believe you can achieve, or find something and try and start to believe it could be possible… Write it down here, and let me help you sow that seed of belief!

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 166 – Smile!

You’ll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.”

Charlie Chaplin

This, Spidey, just encapsulates what I am about.

I truly believe, and you will have heard read me say write this before, that pretty much everything can be turned around with a smile.

Sure, there are times when even the thought of turning the corners of your mouth upwards seem like an impossibility, but sooner or later you will be able to do it, and when you do, just feel the difference to your day.

When times are bad, sometimes a smile lightens your load.

A supportive smile can help another more than you know.

Smiling is good for your health. You can exercise a good few muscles, just by flashing a grin at a passerby – see, good feelings and calorie burning in one go!

Creativity is also meant to be affected by smiling.

A smile can help reduce stress.

Training yourself to smile actually trains your brain to react more positively rather than the natural instinct to take a negative stance.

Did you know smiles are contagious? If you smile at someone, something inside their brain wants to mirror you… just think, your smile could start a chain reaction of smilers all around you!

 

My task for you today is to smile – think of it as Spidey’s Smiley Sunday. if a problem arises, try to tackle it with a smile, it’ll bring positivity to your thoughts. Start a smile chain – smile at someone and see them smile back!

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 165 – Achieving Goal

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

Walt Disney

 

 

A lovely quote Spidey, very fitting for my recent achievements too!

As many of you know, I finally finished writing my first draft on my WIP – my 18-year-old writing project.

I wrote seven chapters before starting the blog in November 2014. Those seven chapters had been crafted fourteen years previously.

That was when my novel dream was born.

And I continued to dream, but life, and maybe an element of laziness crept in.

I mentioned my idea and fledgeling manuscript to a few friends and family members who were encouraging, but I still didn’t actually do anything with it.

Instead, I had babies, then restarted my teaching career.

But my book baby?

That story wasn’t going to write itself.

Plucking courage from the support of fellow bloggers, I posted those chapters, in order to get some feedback and an idea as to whether it was something worth pursuing.

Boy, did those of you who read it give me a jolt! (In a really positive way!)

I needed to continue it! And I talked (wrote) about it incessantly, but another 2 years went by before I actually took to the screen again, to try and achieve my dream.

My #RiNoWriMo project in August added another 60,000 words to the project, and I was exhausted. It wasn’t finished, but I could see the end!

It took another seven months before I took to it again, but I did a lot of ‘talking’ about my teenage WIP… and how I wanted to finish it… before finally taking that last step and getting to the end.

So, instead of talking too much more, I embarked on a Camp RiNo, and just went for it.

And now, I have that full first draft manuscript in my hands, it feels so good!

The dream of publishing it is still a little while away, but the fact that I have a full story written is the first, huge step that I have taken to reach my goal.

And I WILL get there!

Is there anything you have really wanted; a dream you wish to fulfil, or a goal you want to achieve? Tell me about it in the comments, then start planning how you can actually reach it!!!

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes… including you.” – Anne Lamott

Am off this weekend with the family… Spidey thought this was a good time to remind me of this quote!

Enjoy your week Peeps! We’ll be back next week, hopefully doing the happy ‘finished our first draft’ dance!

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times!
