  1. Fireworks For The Soul

    Posted on

    November the 5th came round again and so me and a gaggle of friends, from 50 to 3, crammed in to a car and made our way to our local public display, waiting patiently in slow traffic and then joining the crowds shuffling along the pavement expectantly to our sparkly destination. There were hotdogs, fair ground rides and people of all ages who had dug out their winter scarves, hats and gloves for the very first time this year.

    Having queued for the loo and the food, we were ready to be wowed and so when the fireworks began, we weren't disappointed ... 

    The first rockets exploded and I found myself with a huge smile on my face. The rockets whizzed, banged, flashed and sparkled. We cheered, clapped, oohed and ah'ed. And amongst it all, I reflected how much I still love fireworks, how they can carry me back to the excitement of being a child again and how they make me feel so ALIVE. 

    I've seen fireworks so many times in my life, yet they never fail to fill my head with light, spectacle and joy. 

    So what are YOUR fireworks, what do you have in your life to take you out of the ordinary, lift you and let you sizzle and soar??? For me of course it's fireworks, it's dancing to 80s hits with friends, it's cooking for loved ones, cuddling a purring cat and so many more fab things ... All pleasures to treasure, all guaranteed to help me sparkle and shine. 

    It can be a favourite book, an old film watched on a Saturday afternoon ... seconds, hours or days of time set aside to give me space, inspiration, comfort and joy. 

    All deliberate acts of kindness to myself. Because let's face it, we can be the hardest on ourselves, not always deliberately take care of ourselves and find ourselves falling into routines where work, family, etc, etc becomes all consuming and rest and play for ourselves may or may not get factored in.  

    So stop and think about giving priority to your rest and play - for the psychological and emotional benefits to you and so, it follows, in turn to those around you, as you then shine brighter. Just think about what opportunities you can create for pause and for play - the fireworks for your soul - what you will do, for you, to make those moments, hours and days of comfort and joy? 

    For me - a few weeks ago, I was getting caught up in all the things I had to do, getting worried and overwhelmed, so I sat down and created opportunities for my fireworks for the soul ... So for starters, this week sees me going to a gorgeous country hotel for afternoon tea and champagne with a loved friend - giving me my 'fireworks' and giving her a treat and a break too. I'm enjoying the thought of it already :-). And some how, the other commitments are met, the work gets done AND I get the 'fireworks'. 

    So it's time to find YOUR fireworks ... enjoy the planning, enjoy the doing and I look forward to sharing the sparkle with you...

    With sparkles and stars.

  2. Women! Create your own Fireworks this November!

    Posted on

    So … have you ever heard of in-door fireworks?  Well at my next Damsels in Success event - on 16 November, we are all about creating our OWN sparkle!

    Sparkle Inside

    Now if I were to ask you if you would love to have more happiness, success and fulfilment in your life … I’m guessing the answer would be a resounding yes!

    So let me ask you another simple question:

    Just WHAT is stopping you from getting it then?

    Well maybe you know or may be it’s more elusive than that … either way, you know you would like things to be better or different …

    The things is, most of us say ‘yes’ to wanting more happiness, success and fulfilment, but we never give ourselves the time (or even ask ourselves the question) to find out what is stopping us from getting all what we want … and more besides.

    At Peachey Days with my women’s self-development group; Damsels in Success we truly believe that women really can have more, and each month we join together at our Burton group in Ashby de la Zouch and within our amazing online community across the UK, and explore exactly how we go about doing just that.

    Sparkle from the Inside Out

    Join us as we celebrate with fireworks and extra sparkle this month, on the evening of 16 November, at the Royal Hotel in Ashby de la Zouch and to make the proceedings extra amazing, we have an extremely special guest joining us: Life Transformation Mentor - Natasha Abudarham, helps women get out of their own way, understand who they really are and then live their purpose.

    Natasha spent years searching for something more in her life and each time she thought she’d found it, she soon realized it wasn’t ‘right’. Her quest took her across the world to try life in 5 different countries, changing her job 8 times, moving house 15 times and as for boyfriends - well! No matter what she did or where she went, Happiness, Fulfilment and Success simply seemed to elude her.

    And then she realised it wasn’t her external world, but her internal one that really needed to change and she’ll be telling us exactly how, at our fabulous November event.

    During her inspirational talk, Natasha will share with you:

    • The 3 crucial areas that are dampening your Sparkle right now
    • The biggest culprit affecting your Self-Esteem and Confidence
    • The unseen things you are doing every day that stand in the way of your dreams
    • The cause of physical pain and sickness

    You will also learn how to:

    • Create more Happiness, Fulfilment and Success in your life
    • Align with the real you and your what gifts you have
    • And how to let your life flow with ease and grace

    Sounds like the perfect way to lighten up those cold autumn nights, so put 16 November in your diary and make a date to sparkle!  Book on-line for this event - it’s fabulous and free (to all first timers)!  Simply complete your details here and together we’ll create own gorgeous fireworks – my favourite is the Catherine Wheel – what’s yours?!

    With love and laughter
