Meet Libby 🐶

What a bundle of love and joy she is!!

Libby is our newest addition to the family as Charlie has been feeling quite lonely since Daisy passed away. Poor Charlie has been crying and barking for her, so we thought it best to find him another companion as he’s not used to being a single doggy! Libby is a Cavapoo and loves nothing more than to snuggle up with you in blankets when she’s not bouncing around exploring this new world around her 🌻 below are a few pics for you to enjoy of her, plus Charlie relaxing in the garden back to his younger days.

This next photo and the above was just after a 12 hour shift my first time meeting her so excuse the ‘zombie eyes’ 😂😂

I hope you love Libby as much as I do!!

Have a lovely weekend,

My thoughts on this quote

Life, it can be a funny thing sometimes am I right?

Whether you are reading this and having a great day, not so great day, or a downright awful day I want you to do one thing right now. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back or high five yourself for making it through this week okay? Done? Let’s continue….

The purpose of today’s quote is for us to understand that consistency and persistence when bad times come is key. Whether it’s simply a stressful/low mood week for the many, or a long term mental health condition for individuals is worsening – it’s vital to look after yourself and get extra support you need. Whether that’s speaking to your GP, friend/family member, local trusted member of your community, find someone you can speak to or message if you feel uncomfortable on the phone.

We weren’t put in this world to be miserable and unhappy ( although yes sometimes it can feel like it ) but then at a singular point ( or several ) it can feel like too much, everything overwhelms you and you feet start to feel not so stable along with your mind. It’s at these times you may feel you want to give up, that the world and it’s wife wouldn’t be bothered if you were in it or not, would you even be missing out on much if you feel the way you do, why do you need to be here?!

Let me tell you YOU ARE MEANT TO BE HERE. You are here for a reason otherwise your life would have been naturally taken away so it is not your time, there is joy in store for you in the future. You, like the wave in the picture may be tired of constantly battling with life and your head, then it’s been wearing you down but not getting anywhere positive quick. Remember the story ‘ The Hare and The Tortoise ‘ slow and steady wins the race. Don’t try to rush yourself, it’s okay to make mistakes we’re only human.

But believe in yourself enough to know that you keeping going could lead to a greater time than you would have ever thought of if you don’t give up on yourself and keep trodding along even if you need to adjust things for a while to give you peace of mind, do what you need to do to be at peace within yourself and with the outer world.

Love to everyone,

Lottie x 😘

It would be a lie for me to say we didn’t eat one immediately afterwards, they were too delish!! As for the rest of our girlie evening, we enjoyed a refreshing face mask time and comedies on Netflix with Lola watching close by 🙂

Let us know if you have any other ideas for us to try together!

Lots of love Lottie x

Tip #117: How To Stop Being Afraid Of The Future

So important for everyone to remember! X

1000 Ways To Be Fearless

Tip #117: See the uncertainty of the future as a blessing in a very terrible disguise.

The Why: I must admit, even when writing the title of this particular tip, I was uncertain that it was truly possible.

Get it? No? Anyway…

You see, the future is commonly thought as the anxious persons absolute worst nightmare.

So many of our worries, or as I like to call them, the ever-growing-ever-whirling-vortex-of-fear-and-panic-inside-my brain-ies, are based on the possibilities of the future.

The many ‘what-ifs’ that the world has to offer.

You may ask yourself questions like: “what if this terrible thing happens? What if that terrible thing happens? What if both of those terrible things happen at once? What if both of those terrible things happen at once and I’m somehow also naked and in public?”

Because the future has so many unknowns, there is so much more to worry about. So…
