IT’S GOOD TO BE KIND

IT’S GOOD TO BE KIND

IMG_7292

In the wake of the tragic terror attacks we’ve had over the last few years, one of the things that stands out for me the most is seeing the kindness people of the general public show one another in the face of adversity.

Being kind and considerate is about taking a little time to think how others might be feeling, showing empathy to their situation and how your behaviour towards them can make a positive impact.

To put kindness in to practice you must consider a few points

💗Anticipate what others might need

💗Be considerate of others in public  IMG_8021

💗Listen to friends problems without relating everything to yourself, no one likes to hear ‘yes when that happened to me’ when they’re pouring their heart out

💗Don’t worry about what to say to someone who is experiencing hard times, never avoid them because you don’t know what to say. Real friends don’t always need words they just need to know you’re there for them

💗Don’t monopolise every day conversations, ask others how they’re feeling and how their families are too etc

💗Spare a little thought of people who are lonely or unwell

💗Small thoughtful gifts or cards can mean the world to someone from time to time.

💗Likewise taking a cooked meal or a home baked cake for someone who has been unwell or just had a baby is always greatly appreciated and shows you’ve thought about them.

💗Be punctual and don’t cancel on people unless it is extremely urgent. Being respectful of other peoples time is imperative, one of the most inconsiderate things you can do is act like your time is more important than theirs. Likewise, cancelling on someone at the last minute shows no thought for them and what they have had to organise to meet up with you. Good friends never let other friends down.

Two quotes come to mind, the first from the Disney film ‘Cinderella’

‘Have Courage & Be Kind’

The second was The Dalai Lama, when asked for his philosophy of life, he just said simply ‘Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible’

HELLO MAY 2019

Gosh, I’ve been so busy recently that its almost the middle of May and I’ve not posted a blog post in ages! Work will hopefully be getting a little calmer soon so I can get back to blogging more regularly.

Sadly Easter is over for another year and what a lovely time it’s been. Lots of quality time with family and friends plus a mum and daughter trip to London for Isabelle and me. A week off work worked wonders and allowed me some much needed time to recharge my batteries. I’ve now got a busy month ahead starting with a production of ‘Cats’ the musical that I’ve choreographed so it’s back to it with a vengeance.

FABULOUS THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH

  1. A fantastic girly trip to London for Isabelle and meIMG_7901

MY TRAVEL BUCKET LIST & COUNTRIES I’VE BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO VISIT IN MY LIFE SO FAR

IMG_7759

This is more of a personal list for me than a blog post but I love to travel so much I wanted to post it. During my time working as a professional dancer I was extremely fortunate to travel the world extensively whilst doing what I love & getting paid for the pleasure. I have visited places most people only dream of and, as dancers we had passenger status, so I enjoyed all the luxurious trappings of Cruise ship life too. Looking at my sons world map the other day I decided to make a list of all the fabulous places I’ve seen and experienced. The list is quite extensive but I still have many many places I want to visit. I want my children to travel the world and see some of…

Let me introduce you to a special girl. Her name is Isabelle Daisy & I’m very proud to be her mum!  Isabelle is the ‘Belle in Me & My Belle’ & I adore her. She’s funny, beautiful, passionate, sensitive, happy, thoughtful, clever & talented with the kindest soul I know.

Isabelle has always been interested in filming and loves all things fashion, beauty & lifestyle. After making a few home videos and enjoying the filming, editing process & also being more than confident on camera, she decided a few months ago to start her own YouTube channel.

Like many girls her age she loves watching various Youtubers and decided she wanted to be part of the action herself. IMG_7436

She’s still in the early stages of her channel but has started to produce some good videos including a 50 day blog challenge over the summer which was no easy…
