Dare to dream. 

Since we have moved into the new castle Von Black we still don’t have out goals and dream board up yet. I can’t wait for the house to be finished so we can finally do the finishing touches and number one is obviously the board. 

It’s amazing how having your dreams and goals visible everyday can really help to kick start you into going out there and making the small changes that lead to huge ones. 

For example. If you have say “go on a family vacation” on your board, then seeing this everyday will make you aware of holidays deals when they appear. It will deter you from spending unnecessarily and help you to save as your goal is right in front of you almost constantly, asking you to make me a reality so you can scrub me off the board. 

We are very lucky to have a very large chunk of our board scrubbed off already and if nothing else was to change this year well we couldn’t be more grateful. As it is though another 2 goals are set to be scrubbed off very soon and we have plans for every other goal. 

I hope you can all find somewhere for your goals board. It doesn’t have to be grand, it could be a clipboard always in view or writing on your fridge. Keep in plane sight and never let that dream go until you complete it. The universe is there to help you, you just need to ask and writing it down is your first step. 

Love always,

Make it happen. 

Hello everyone. Previously I wrote about my goals and dreams book and today I would like to talk about the second book I mentioned, the “make it happen book” 

This book is just as important as the first but does not need to be carried around with you at all times. It’s a book for reflection and deep thought. The best way to start the writing is to buy a book duh! Make sure you buy a book that makes you want to fill its pages. A diary style book is perfect for this one as you really want to write as much as you can. 

This book is for writing about a set goal or dream you are ready to make into reality. Make sure you are ready to receive this dream fully and are willing to take the right steps to making it happen. There is little point focusing on say, a goal of moving country when you have started a new relationship that you know you want to stay to find out how it works. You are not ready to focus on that goal yet, your heart is not in it and you will always have a “but maybe” and that will skew your focus. 

When you have chosen your goal then it’s time for the most fun part, writing as if it’s happened. Write as if your recurring about a past experience with your goal, how it felt when it happened, where you were, how you looked, every single tiny detail. When you have finished writing about how it happened start with the sentence “because of this” and start writing  again. You wang to write as much as you can about it. 

For example when I wrote about moving house I wrote about receiving the confirmation letter. I wrote how I was cleaning the house at the time and Jax was eating his lunch. The letter came through the post box and I knew instantly that it was THE letter and ran to the front door. I wrote about the colour of the envelope, the stamp, the paragraphs being so short and how I ran around the house screaming and freaked out Jax. When I had finished I started the sentence “because if this” and wrote on about how moving has brought our family closer together. It has given me new prospects and ideas on a home business. I filled about 20 pages and dates it in the future, the day I wanted the letter to come through the door. It came through 2 days earlier than that date and I knew it was THE letter. I screamed for joy, Jax screamed through fear and the paragraphs were indeed very short. 

When you have filled your pages don’t think that’s you done. You may write about your goal once or you may fill an entire journal and your goal may not have come into play. If this is the case I would ask you to read over what you have written. Clues or home truths pop out as you write. I wrote about my move a year ago and I finished that first page with “I don’t want to move but I know it’s got to happen”. There was the problem right there I didn’t want to move. 

When you write you must be truly honest with yourself. If you want to gain something but are fearful that something else might transpire then write about it. Write about what would happen if it did hapoen and then write about what steps you would need to take to stop it from happening. Pretty soon you have written a game plan and you can start to climb your ladder of things needed to do to reach your goal. 

When you write, you open up to the universe and are letting it know that you are ready to receive the positive outcomes of your goals. You speak truthfully and if you focus enough attention on it you will attract the positive energy to make it happen. 

Happy writing everyone and have a wonderful, adventurous weekend. 

Love always

The goals book. 

Hello everyone, I hope your all doing well this Sunday morning. I am currently in bed after having a lie in thanks to Daddy VB. Bless him for doing the 6am wake up call with Jax as I was extra tired. So seeing as I’m stuck all toasty in bed I thought it’s a perfect opportunity to get some writing done. 

I have mentioned previously about my books that I use to help me when goal writing or putting out my positivity into the world. Today I want to go into more detail about the goals book and I’ll write a piece on my “making it happen” book later. 

Whenever anyone asks me about where to start in living a positive life I always mention my dream board which I’ve written about previously and a goals journal. Now different to the dream board your goals journal can be pages upon pages of goals you wish you to achieve. I was gifted my small floral journal when I went to a girls night with my friend through the church that ran Jax playgroup. At that night they asked us to write down 5 dreams you would like to come true and since then I have filled in about 30 pages. 

First point of call in the goals journal is to have one. Go out and find something that makes you want to write in it and it will help you on your task. You can find beautiful goals journals online everywhere you turn. This beauty is only £6 in paper chase and has 3 goals per page that gives you details you can add to them and a date to do them by. 

Once you have your journal it’s time to put pen to paper. I challenged myself to write 50 goals. These were things I wanted to do achieve the most and they came from the heart. You will be surprised by how quickly you start to write and of some of the goals you write down. The first ten goals are usually quick and those are the goals I would ask you to write on your dream board as they are your clear goals you have thought of for a while so they are most important to see daily to help you achieve them as soon as possible. 

When you start to run out of quick fire goals is the interesting part, this is when your deep desires come out. Plans you think “well it won’t happen but I’ll write it down anyway” put a big old marker around those ones. When you come to look back through your journal in say a years time and those markered goals are still something you want to truly do then I’d implore you to start getting on with making them happen. These goals can be anything from having a baby or moving country but if that’s a true desire you need to get on it. These won’t go away and the universe will help you on your way. 

Keep your goals journal close to you if you can or if you can’t then start a wee notebook on your phone for when you think of something new that you can then write in later. New goals pop up all the time be it “finish the charity run” that you signed up for that day or even “visit the tea house” that you just walked past. It’s still a goal and there’s nothing more satisfying that crossing them off when you have completed them. 

Please don’t be scared to write as much as you want in them and to dream big. There is no wrong way to write a goal you just have to be willing to work for it. Your all capable of amazing things you just need to place that first pebble into your positivity pool and watch the ripple effect happen as all your goals start to be achieved. 

I hope you all have fun writing in your journals and starting your journey to leading a fully positive life. 

Love always Mumma VB x
