Embracing Boredom

Boredom is seen as a negative emotion, an emotion we try to avoid by keeping ourselves busy. But with the power of boredom, we can unlock the mental toughness of our mind and strive for greatness. When I’m in the state of boredom this is my quiet time has it allows me to reflect on my life and see what improvements are needed. It also allows me to learn a lot more about myself and spend quality time looking after me. So why is boredom such a good thing:

Boredom allows you to be more creative. Creativity allows us to come up with great ideas. Everything on this earth started of has an idea which the idea was then put into action and become something GREAT! Just has Albert Einstein says “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

Boredom allows you to be more goal-oriented. I find that creating a vision board of how I want my life to be is fulfilling, the joy I experience cutting up images of a magazine and sticking them onto a board makes me feel very happy about myself and my future. Seeing your goals and things you want can be motivating making you chase after your dreams each and every day.

When you pay attention to boredom it gets unbelievably interesting. Jon Kabat-Zinn

Boredom is not a problem, in boredom we can truly find ourselves.

The Year I will not forget.

2018 was probably one of my years, filled with so much accomplishment and great things, how can I ever forget!

Meeting Les Brown

Lesley Brown is my all time favorite motivational speaker who’s videos completely inspired and saved me at the age of 16 when my life was spiraling out of control. It was a burning desire of mine to attend one of his talks no matter what, to find out that 2018 was the last year Les Brown was ever going to visit the UK made me even more hungry to see him. I was so determined to get myself a ticket. I just remember writing it down in my Gratitude book by Rhonda Byrne that I will attend and see Les Brown this year and nothing was going to stop me…

I remember taking 5:00 am National Express to get to London. By the time I reached London making my way to Central Hall Westminster I knew that my dream was coming true, I couldn’t believe I was here, and I was going to be in the same room as Les Brown. The day was filled with so much excitement and with great speakers, I was so happy seeing the man that had a massive impact on my life come on stage it was breathtaking! I knew that this was going to be one in a lifetime opportunity and I am so glad I grabbed it with both hands and it literally gave me the motivation I needed for 2018. I can say after attending the speak 2018 was my best year so much magic took place in my life.

Funny Experience with Law Of Attraction

I decided to go to London and celebrate Christmas, 21st birthday and last weeks of 2018 with my aunts that I haven’t seen for almost 5 years! On Xmas day I was given a red leather bag from my aunt, which I could rock with many outfits! When I got back to Manchester I simply put the bag in my wardrobe and didn’t even think twice to open it. Hmmmmm

So few weeks into 2019, I decided to watch the Secret by Rhonda Byrne, I love this movie so much and watch it regularly, maybe a little too much. As I was watching the movie I said out loud ‘Hmm, I would love to have a puppy’, I imagined holding the puppy and taking good care of it and I felt really good about it. So when the movie finished, I wrote down my gratitude which is something I do every night before bed so I can wake up feeling grateful and ready to conquer the day ahead.

I remember waking up the next morning feeling refreshed and excited about what the day will bring. As I was putting my shoes on I thought to myself hmm it would be nice If I used a different bag to work. So I went to the wardrobe and got the red leather bag that I had received for Xmas. So I decided to put my notebook inside the bag as I open it, I was mind-blown what I had found inside…

A puppy teddy bear.

I was literally taken back to the night before, I had visioned having a puppy, I just sat down for five minutes and laughed I swear there were even tears involved. Like was this for real?

Although it wasn’t a real-life puppy, It made be released that if I had written it down and been more specific with the universe of what I wanted I probably would have been blessed with a real puppy. For me, this just proves that the Law of Attraction listens and the more specific we are with what we want it can surely deliver. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
