The 3 Minute Memoirs – Getting Up Early and Plans For The Day

So here it is! My daily 3 minutes on film. In today’s episode you can find out if I managed to drag myself out of my amazing bed at 6am, as well as some plans I have for the day.

Enjoy and hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Good Morning! I’m Sure You Can’t Wait To Find Out If…

Good morning everyone! What a beautiful morning! I’m sure you’re dying to know if I made it up at 6 aren’t you? I bet you just can’t wait to find out and have woken up in excitement only rivalled by that of Christmas morning! (Sarcasm alert!)

Well, I’ll be posting todays 3 Minute Memoir in the next hour or so where you can find out!

For now, here’s the promised article I found on the benefits of getting up before 6 am. Enjoy 🙂

The 3 Minute Memoirs – Weekend And Objective Of The Week

How was everyone’s weekend? How much did getting up this morning suck? It’s almost harder to start a new week when you’ve had an amazing weekend isn’t it? Because you don’t want it to be over!

Oh well, time to get motivated and set some objectives for the week! Tell me what yours are and we’ll motivate each other to achieve them, to get one step closer to living a purposeful life!

I Need Your Help!! – Poll

I would really appreciate your opinion on this!!

I have mentioned previously that I have started writing three books. However I need to start concentrating on just one! But pretty much on a daily basis I change my mind on which would be best as a debut novel.

And so I have decided to put this conundrum to my readers. I would massively appreciate your feedback on this!

Thank you in advance 🙂

The 3 Minute Memoirs – It’s Friday!

Hope you’re all having an awesome day!

As you will see from this video, I’m all over the place! But the end of it was so funny I couldn’t bring myself to post any other. I could have edited it but really, what’s the point?

Enjoy and have a laugh at my expense – my gift to you for the weekend! Dani xx

The 3 Minute Memoirs – Makeup and S.A.D.

Happy Thursday everyone and welcome to my latest 3 minute memoir! Hope you’ve all had a good day so far. It’s been horrible and a bit grey weather wise here, which hasn’t helped my S.A.D. at all. But there’s still lots to be grateful for!

After all, if we don’t have the dark, we don’t appreciate the light 🙂

Alcoholism And Drug Abuse – Ecstasy and Other Drugs

So far, as part of the Alcoholism and Drug Abuse piece, I have written about my experience with alcoholism, alcohol and cannabis. In this 4th and final part of this section, I take a look at some of the darkest times in my life. Put in black and white, it is staggering to see how easy it is to go down a road you never imagined you would go down. Maybe my naivety and unpreparedness for things like this out in the world, led me to be blindsided and less averse to being influenced so easily. Maybe I was just lost and unhappy. One thing I do know. This is the hardest article I’ve ever had to write.

Drug Abuse – ECSTASY And Other Drugs

In part 3 I told you about Lee*, the tall, dark, handsome, older guy I never thought would take an interest in an awkward 19-year-old loser. But he did, and in the summer of 2005, a year after we met, we started seeing each other. It was a short but incredibly intense 3 months long relationship. He moved me into his annex and spoke of engagement rings and our future. We had the kind of love affair you associate with Hollywood movies; big breakups, dramatic makeups. I was hooked on the sheer adrenaline and devastation that only young infatuation can bring. No one told me it could feel like this, so all-consuming. But his problem with cannabis was only the tip of the iceberg.

When he ended it, I thought someone had reached into my body and ripped out my heart. I didn’t know how I was going to carry on living! It was the first and only time my heart has been truly broken. The pain was so intense, I fantasised about jumping in front of cars. Not because I wanted to die, but because I just wanted to make it stop. Nothing mattered anymore.

I didn’t know that at some point, I would get over it.

The 3 Minute Memoirs – I Have A Mentor!

Hello and welcome to the first of my 3 Minute Memoir videos! I will be posting these on a daily basis sharing thoughts for the day, general feelings and things I am up to, now of which will be longer than 3 minutes long!

After meeting Aimee Holland — founder of Grow My Profit — last week, I had my first mentoring session with her today. Such an inspirational lady and someone I feel I can really learn something from! As you can tell from the video, I’m pretty excited!

Dear WordPress Support

Ah this explains a thing or two! Share and spread awareness!!

Can Ignoring How You Feel Help You Achieve Your Long Term Goals?

You may have noticed a lack of posts lately, maybe even a bit of a disconnection with me, its author.

A few weeks ago, I posted a vlog about how to let go of anger, in which I talked about the mountain of stress that had been coming my way. I also spoke about how my emotions and coping mechanisms seem to shut down in order to manage the overwhelming pressure I put myself under. It is like my mind is saying, “ENOUGH, I need a break!”

You see, on top of building this site in order to start living my soul purpose (which as all you bloggers know, is a lot more work than just posting an article every now and then), I’ve also been planning a wedding, started a life-coaching course, am organising a 3 months travelling excursion as part of our honeymoon, and am writing a book (well, I’ve kind of started 3…). We’re also moving out of our house a week before we get married and I’m trying to do all the housework because I feel so guilty over not earning any money.

And I have given myself a timeframe of 4 months.
