Motivational Playlist

Image
Some days I find it really difficult to get motivated. I do find going for a walk helps but that actually requires me to get up and move which some days is just no. There are only so many motivational videos you can watch on Youtube without thinking ‘ well if I was going boxing this would be great but I’m literally just trying to move at this point’. I’ve found the most effective method to get motivated and feel good about yourself is to listen to music that makes you want to get up and out and make something of the day.
So here is what is on my motivational playlist. There is a mixture of pop, rock and hip hop.
Bulletproof – La Roux The Middles – Jimmy Eats World Firework – Katy Perry Live your life – T.I. Gives you hell – All American Rejects Not Afraid – Eminem Survival – Eminem ‘Till I Collapse – Eminem (can you tell I like Eminem) Work – Rihanna Work Bitch – Britney Spears The Fighter – Gym Class Heros Girl on Fire – Alilica Keys Sissy That Walk – Rupaul Glorious (feat Skylar G…

Book Review – Watch Me by James Carol

Watch me by James Carol is the next installment of the Jefferson Winters series. After reading Broken Dolls, James Carol first book, I was so excited to read this one and it did not disappoint.
  This time the story is set in Eagle Creek, Louisiana. Sam Galloway, who is a successful and wealthy lawyer, is set alight and a countdown begins until the next victim is murdered. The sheriff has called in Winters to help track the killer. In the book we are introduced to Taylor, who is new to the police and who Jefferson wanted to work with as Taylor is a bit of an outcast but a really likable character. I feel that having Taylor as one of the main characters really helped to keep the story lighter. It didn’t feel as intense as Broken Dolls. There is also little bits of humour this time around, albeit dark humour. I felt it made it a more enjoyable read.
 My few only criticisms are that it didn’t build suspense and keep it. It would start of well then fizzled out so quickly. Another point wa…

Motivational Quotes

I feel like I’m not the only person who does this when struggling to get motivated or having a crisis of confidence, to go on to pinterest or Google and type in ‘motivation’ or ‘inspiration’ and so many picture and quotes come up. Here are a few of them that has stuck in my mind and I feel really has made a difference in my life and my approach and attitude toward things in life.
Feel the fear and do it anyway
This is my favourite. I found this quote when I was about 20 and really struggling with my confidence. I’m a naturally shy person and I was missing out on so much because I was worried my shyness would come across as rudeness and people wouldn’t like me. What I really like about this quote is that it pushes you. Even when you are nervous you just need to go for it and think about it later. These words have been the reason why I started to speak up more and stood my ground. It comes from the book ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’ by Susan J Jeffers – I really good read, I really r…

I’m sure we have all been there when you’ve gone to express your love of something and been greeted with the response ‘ugh!
