You come across as a doer rather than an achiever.

You come across as a doer rather than an achiever.

These are the words that someone said to me once,they seem to be stuck in my mind.

Are they right ? 
Do I do a lot and not actually achieve results?

What is a doer - the person who does something.A person who acts rather than merely talking or thinking.

Associated with positive words - worker,organiser,activist,succeeded and ACHIEVER.

So is it possible to be both a doer and an achiever ?

What is an achiever - a person who achieves a high or specified level of success.

Key words - performer,worker,entrepreneur and DOER.

“In basic terms a doer is someone who simply lists their responsibilities and duties.”

“An achiever reframes those responsibilities into their accomplishments.”

“Doers are practical, but friendly and they usually have a great sense of urgency and like to be in charge. They focus on tasks.”

“An achiever covers quantifiable improvements rather than task focused. They use powerful and compelling content to showcase their shining moments.”

So do I just list me responsibilities and tasks rather than actually putting pen to paper pardon the pun and get out in the world and make shit happen.

The example that comes to mind is Someone that tells everyone that they are going to the gym or a certain exercise class in order to push and give themselves motivation to actually go.As opposed to someone who tells themselves,right tone to go to the gym and off they go,get on with the task and boom they’ve achieved a task off there check list.

I was given the advice from a careers professional who doesn’t know me as a person,but only from my CV.

I can’t help but feel I have taken this sentence to heart.Has it struck a chord with me personally.

I am always going on about getting a good job,making lots of money and being successful.In order to life to the highest and afford an apartment in London.

My latest is that if I haven’t achieved a well paid job by June,1/2 way through the year in order of me just repeating the year with no change.I am just going somewhere away.Do not know for how long or where,but a destination out of the UK.Travelling.

Maybe I need to be more conscious of how I’m spending my time and that I make the most out of it and achieve great results.

What’s your opinion on this ?

7 days,then repeat

7 days in the week then just repeat again 

Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday repeat forever 

We wake up every morning we are so grateful to open our eyes and be alive each and every day.

Work 5 days play 2.How does that work? Who made the rules ?

Who’s to say everyday shouldn’t be a Friday.

Don’t dread Mondays,it’s just as good as any other.

It is what we make it!

Living for the weekend.STOP.Yeah we have 365 days to live but life’s short.

Do one thing that scares you each day.One think that makes you a better stronger person.Lots of things that you love and most of all be happy ❤️

Life is for living.

So live in the moment and live the life you want to live.

As after all one day ..... it will end 🌎

Am I too much?

Am I too much ?

Am I ok ?

He’s not good for me but I’m still crazy about him.

The thought makes me act how I don’t like.Am I going psycho ?

Some people really aren’t good for your health.

What am I doing? Why ? I know it’s wrong. I know it’s bad but that doesn’t stop me.Honestly girl you are worth more than feeling like this. 

Stop it girl.Get over it.Grow and move on.

Just want some clarification,then I’ll get on with me.

Boy oh boy you did it again

Here’s to putting us first!

“Nothing breaks like the heart-nothings going to save us now” 

Finding myself in my room in the dark listening to a breakup playlist crying my heart out.Not even had a break up but just needed some emotional girl love songs as I’m so over guys for the last time.

2019 is my year for knowing my worth!! Which for all of us girls is more than we ever know and is limitless.

22 and still getting sucked into the lies of immature worthless guys.There the worthless ones who don’t appreciate you and don’t you ever think less than that.

My time is precious and it’s mine! To not be spent on people who aren’t willing to use there time.

Something i don’t seem to get “if someone wanted to talk to you or be in your life,they’d make an effort”.

Fucking feelings aye! Need to start taking things as they are in the moment and nothing more.

Here to putting us first!

He’s not that great!

How to tell yourself that a guy doesn’t give a fuck about you ..... if he did he’d make an effort to call.

“Listen here you beautiful bitch.Stop crying over a fuck boy who doesn’t give a shit about you and find yourself a real man who will make you the centre of his entire fucking world.”

Stop giving a damn about the guy who doesn’t give a damn about you 

If your not on his mind,he shouldn’t be on yours 

He’s not that great

You are better and worth so much more 

I’m sorry but he doesn’t give a shit about you! So move on and stop wasting energy and precious time 

You already know the truth 

Realise .... you did nothing wrong 

You are a badass sassy queen stay strong and put you first 💁🏻‍♀️😘

A few days away in Brighton

After returning to work after my summer holiday I had a serious case of the holiday blues!

I was questioning my current role in my career and life plan all together.Just being a miserable B****

So I booked myself and my mum a couple of days in away to Brighton 😊

60 miles from the hustle of the city and away from daily realities.

Theirs  something about the sound of the sea and the seagulls that is so calming.

We stayed in the Amsterdam hotel which with a sea view and balcony over looking the pier was the best view to wake up too.

Just spending my time with my mum walking around the uniquely beautiful lanes and exploring all the hidden treasures that Brighton offers.Discovering coffee shops with yummy treats.

Of course eating fish and chips and drinking jugs of pimms on the pier in the sunshine is optional and weather permitting 😂 I highly recommend!!

I could have spent hours sipping my coffee on the beach looking out to the sea thinking about life and what makes me happy.

"Brighton really did brighten my spirits" Sometimes a few days spent using social media to a minimum is also great,if maybe your feeling in a bit of a funk like me or as I have described as my "quarter life crisis "

But now I guess back to reality and at least I'll be going back with a smile on my face and memories of a lovely few days 😘

Until next time .......

Self Love

Most of my teenage/adult life I'm 21 this year 😱which is so crazy it's scary.I amongst thousands even millions of other people am self conscious.

People are far to busy with their own lives to be looking what your  doing!

I'm always putting my self down about my appearance and comparing myself on social media.

So many things in my life are put on hold,for when I get to my goal weight.Its like I'm expecting to get to a certain weight and become happy and confident! I've been my goal weight before and that was not the case I still wasn't happy with my appearance.

Anyway going off track.As I'm getting older I'm more body conscious than ever,however I have a slightly different outlook and I'm more interested in being fit and healthy.

Whilst I've been away on holiday in Greece,Where I am currently sat around a pool writing this post.

I could be sat around the beach in my swimwear sweating to death as I'm covered up in a towel or I could embrace what I have in my lovely tankini set.

Of course at the back of my mind theirs the devil saying "everyone's looking at you because your huge" when really no ones  looking at me or judging me for what I look like.Or even if they are their judging eyes aren't going to affect my day!

I'm not embarrassed to say that I know I am on the larger side and always admit it in a jokey way that I'm huge but I'm healthy and strong so why am I complaining.

Our bodies are the only ones we're going to have and yes we can change them but maybe their not so bad as they are and we should be proud! 

We're all so harsh on ourselves and should love our bodies more for all the good they 
do for us!

I'm really interested in learning more about self love so if anyone has any tips or book recommendations,I'd love to hear from you!

Thank you
