Feel good about yourself

Feel good about yourself

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.

I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.

There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.

I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.

However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.

Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.

I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.

Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.

Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.

Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.

So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.

Try it.

Feel it!

Feel it!

So, I’m basically sat here eating shortbread biscuits and a cup of tea to hand.

Call me “Roll em Isa” . Soon you will be able to roll me down the road and use me as a flotation device at the rate I’m putting on the lard. I’m being totally serious here.

I’ve been exceptionally diligent during the whole COVID debacle and apparently there are more restrictions announced today. I decided I’d rather not watch the news because frankly I’d probably shove another biscuit in my mouth.

Yep I’m one of them. Eat when I’m bothered by situations. Seems 2020 is a giant chocolate biscuit of a year.

Covid doesn’t just affect my social life with people but frankly travelling back to Australia and also all the day to day things we take for granted. Trips to the seaside, dinners out, mooching around the shops on a Saturday, hairdressers for a pep up feel good. In fact just about everything.

Oh and don’t get me started on the whole dating thing. We all know I’m single in reality and virtuality. I’m doomed to spend my last days wearing a mask and shoving biscuits in my mouth.

What are the chances of going on dates now? Unless of course you fancy anti bac spraying them and sterilising them first?

I feel better now. Thank you for reading.

McDonalds please

McDonalds please

Do you ever have days where you crave a McDonalds?

That’s been me today, all day.

One of those things I shouldn’t eat because of all the dietary reasons not to. Yet right now all I can think of is how a Caramel Sundae would rock my world after a Big Mac and fries!!

I’m having a weird week of feeling both run down and unwell and when I get like that, food is my carrot on a stick.

Which. Is rather ironic to say because who wants a carrot right now? Not me!

On another note I am now preparing for my new social media direction with Boucleme the Curly girl method.

My email has been set up yesterday by them and they are setting me up in their site as well as today I received an amazing package from them.

I’ll pop a photo under the credits. I’m pretty excited and really nervous about the whole thing. After all at the age of 54 I actually never expected such an opportunity to come my way.

I officially start my contract on the 26th October and I’ll have a code etc to share with people if they are into their curls. Clearly I’ll pop it in my site so anyone can feel free to look at once I have it.

I have set up a YouTube channel and my first video has gone out. I haven’t really shared it because I’m still trying to get used to this whole thing. Its below and so feel free to look if you so choose. The real me rather than the virtual production.

I’ll take the plunge and share in my RL Facebook and se what those pesky RL friends think.

They can be harsh too. So I’ll bite my tongue and cross my fingers.

The dark matter

The dark matter

Strange things happen at night when you are asleep during the Hallowed month.

All those who are laid to rest come up to celebrate and dance upon their graves. In readiness for the one day when the moon opens up and lets all of them free for the night to wander the streets of Hallowed lands. Dancing their way into Halloween.

She rises and seizes the moment…….

Travelling in virtual reality

Travelling in virtual reality

There’s is nothing quite like exploring in life. Be it virtually or in the context of jumping on a plane in reality.

Seeing as reality is dishing us a current state of confusion and inability to travel, let me mix it up and take you on a virtual journey where you can leave all the negatives at the press of your play button.

If only we could press a play button for whatever we want!!

Or can we?

Now just watch because it’s better than being bombarded by all the negative that’s suffocating our lives.

Today Beverley comes to you from the Namaste Coffee shop in Second Life as she lives her COVID19 Lockdown.

Beverley has always been a lover of food and of course will always be found munching on something.

There is no logic to Beverley, she is the enigma of her virtual world she lives in and embraces the concept of finding calm, calm so much calm.

Beverley is the Parody of what is. What may be and what could be, if only.

Decisions, decisions!

Decisions, decisions!

Happy Saturday lovely people.

I’m a little weary and deciding what I’m planning to do.

I could visit Las Longes or maybe go chill in Calais De Bedroomes.

Decisions decisions. I simply cannot make my mind up!

Though to be honest right now I would rather be chilling like my photo on a balcony overlooking the sea and staring at gorgeous dolphins leaping in the air and the sound of the sea and the sun on my face, sipping an iced tea.

Last night I attempted my 2k subscriber giveaway with a number of technical issues.

To be fair though I was extremely pleased with being able to do it on ultra graphics and no lag at all. If anything at least that turned out well.

The only glitch was trying to switch between a web page and the secondlife viewer.

On practice I thought I had cracked it but in truth. Nope.

Maybe by 2034 I may eventually have learnt. 😳

Although the video has nothing to do with this post I am adding it in here so those who reads my blog are aware of the winners.

The outfit deets will be posted later today as they form part of tonight’s video. Go figure. I’m a bit upside down like that in my chaotic head.

Have a glorious Saturday and by the way this outfit has a hud!!!

Today I find myself in the low from this whole COVID19 isolation thing.

I started work this morning and had the usual Microsoft teams video team meeting.

For a start no one looks the same at all. Everyone has changed because they don’t follow the same routines any more.

The only person in that meeting who is the same is me. Apart from the crazy red wig I was wearing to make everyone smile.

I’m used to working from home and just living that laid back lifestyle.

I don’t know what happened. But once the tears welled up, they couldn’t stop. They haven’t stopped all day.

I booked leave immediately for the rest of today and the rest of this week. I then went to bed and slept till 3pm.

I know myself well enough to know I’m imploding and need to realign myself.

The last time I felt this way was in 2016 and at that time I was headed to a bad place in my head.

Human contact is incredibly important. Hugging close family and friends is part of our being human.

My happy place is my children, grandson and my close girlfriends.

I’ve seen none for 6 weeks now. (Not that I’m counting, but I am).

Wherever you are, make the most of your close ones as really all in life that is important is them. ❤️

What I do have are my cherished fur friends Bondi & Tippi who basically are my world. They give the best love right now.

Tinder Dates!

Tinder Dates!

Our society has become a little bit disposable in its attitude to matters of the heart.

I remember the “olden days” when you met someone and you fell hook line and sinker and you appreciated that person for all their good and bad.

Roll on to 2020 and let’s face it, those hook line and sinker butterfly feelings don’t quite last and matters of the heart and such are very transient.

Once they dissipate people these days tend to then move onto the next eye candy that they want to taste better and riper candies. The only thing is those riper candies also soon lose their flavours. Then what?

Any wonder trust and the love word have became less meaningful and devalued.

Social media such as Facebook and Instagram are the medium where people post their heady “love pics”, fooling onlookers into believing that life is perfect etc etc.

But it rarely is.

The facts are that people are less honest about life these days, filtering it all to look great and when things go wrong, things are disposable and they just find the next colourful bite.

That’s our modern reality.

How many heady love moments have you had where you were suddenly swiped left because they swiped right for someone else?
