Thoughts on a Sunday morning

I’ve spent a few hours this morning alone in my own thoughts which was really nice. I feel like recently I’ve been making myself feel so busy and not fully taking the time for myself to just be. Although I do spend time on meditation, yoga, working out and reading, I haven’t allowed time for my mind to just wonder, reflect and be present because I’m constantly thinking what’s next.

Also, here on ablovesfood.com I have spent so much time dedicating my posts to food and I really miss the self growth and inspirational posts. I’ll definitely be committing myself to freewriting more as we can all be connected through many different things.

In life we can have so many distractions and we just forget to enjoy life and remember the true meaning/purpose for why we started something. I think I felt like in order for my blog to grow, I had to commit to only writing about cooking and baking but I’m also on a journey in life which includes many other things that I would like to incorporate into this space. Anyway, my morning has been so peaceful and relaxing but I think it’s time I got up and started my day.

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday x

Something About Life….

There’s something about life that means you have to make the most of it, people and places are just the added bonus that you get to experience on the way. Make great memories that will last a lifetime but always remember that everything around you will one day disappear. What was your constant one day will be gone the next. As long as you put in your best efforts nobody can ask for anything more. New things will always be round the corner you just have to seek them out!

Why you should start journaling

It’s a great way to recollect your thoughts and feelings throughout the day, journaling allows you to read your thoughts back at a later date and understand how you felt at different moments in your life. You can gain confidence within yourself and also trust that when looking back on your words you’ll have achieved a lot and grown into a better person.

It doesn’t have to be in anything fancy just a simple notebook and pen will do.

‘You should write your feelings down when your feeling emotional to capture that particular moment and keep it in your mind to treasure so that when you read over it you can remember exactly how you felt’

How to deal with failure

Regardless of the situation at first it may seem like the worst thing ever and that there’s nothing you can do to fix or change the situation but just remember….there’s always light at the end of the tunnel 🙂

It doesn’t really matter specifically what has happened in your life as long as you stay hopeful, acknowledging and accepting what has happened will enable you to move on. This is the first stage of you becoming stronger within.

Here are some tips to help deal with failure:

1. Write down your feelings, thoughts and emotions.

2. Talk through the problems with someone.

3. Organise a plan to make things better.

4. Pray! Even if you are not religious you may have/feel a spiritual connection with the universe which will help ease the pain of your problems.

I really hope this helps if anyone is going through anything they wish they weren’t, life will always be full of obstacles and it’s how you decide to deal with them that determines your future
