Have you ever had the feeling that you were here for a reason?

I have felt this way for many years and no matter what I do I always end at the cross-road.  Like most of you, I began to read various books, trying to gather information together from Inspirational, Affirmation's and Self- Help books, including "Think and Grow Rich and The Secret"to name but a few. I also watched video's and  webinar's but still nothing seemed to actually work. I followed my spiritual path for many year's until one morning I awoke and I didn't feel the same about it anymore.
Last week whilst surfing the Internet I came across another self- help book. This one was called "A Bug Free Mind" written by Andy Shaw. His website offered free viewing of the first five chapters, of both books "Creating A Bug Free Mind and Using A Bug Free Mind" if you registered .Well I just had to read them, supposing  I never went any further, I thought I could then tick another self help book off my list. So I signed up and started reading...

The first chapter is all about taking back control of your mind from your ego. You need to think of a happy memory and then try and hold it for up to fifteen seconds to begin with. I know this sounds simple but I found it quite difficult at the start as I could not think of a happy memory at that time. Once you have your memory you must apply it regularly throughout your day.  Andy's ideas are good and he seems to have the patience of a saint.

The introduction was excellently written and the language really helps to attract your attention. Alan is down to earth and his intention is to help you turn your life around. He strongly emphasises that you must try hard to build your foundation ready to apply his techniques. As I read on I felt as though Alan, was sitting in the chair opposite me, calmly explaining  "Creating A Bug Free Mind," and how to take control of it. His words were clear, concise and I found I understood everything he conveyed. .He  suggested re-reading chapters and paragraph's until you grasp the contents and their meanings,, then apply accordingly..At first it was hard to grasp and keep it for five seconds let alone fifteen seconds. By the third attempt I was able to hold it for almost fifteen seconds.. I continued to practise throughout my day's and .by day three I was up to 20 seconds. By day four I thought I had almost mastered it and was able to hold it for ten minutes. Then this morning while driving home in my car I became aware that something was different about me.Needless to say, I'm hooked and yesterday, I purchased two of his books!  If you would like to know more just click on this link

I'm ashamed to admit, that despite swearing on my oath earlier this year that I would not be distracted in the year 2013,  I have to admit I have failed miserably. I am not making excuses but I have not been deliberately avoiding writing but merely busy in other areas of my life. During the past two months, my dad went into hospital again for another operation and when he came home I was running around after him like a headless chicken.

Then the renovations began both inside and out to the house. First of all we had a new bathroom fitted which took approximately a week. Then the work began on our garage which has been converted into a workshop for my "flower business!" and incidentally, was followed by a porch on the front of the house. From start to finish it has taken a while but what a difference. The house with it's cobbled brick driveway now looks so much nicer  since I have planted up a few containers and planters.

Later we were informed that the "Opencast Mining", were moving onto the land where my horse Alf grazes.  That came as quite a shock and so I frantically called various places to see if there were any vacancies. I was lucky and found a yard with plenty grazing for him and so much closer to home.. which was perfect. So you see, I have been keeping busy, albeit not quite in the direction I actually should have been.

Early this year, I joined a fitness health regime online and I took up badminton training. I am proud to say that I have managed to keep badminton on going, as it played two roles for me. provided me with a good workout and secondly.. it also gave me a break from my dad and the walls of our house, which seem to have become my prison. More importantly, I have to admit that the journey in finding my true niche still seems far away.. But, I'm not a quitter and will keep on searching and hopefully in the not-so-distant future... I'll stumble upon it!  If you have any suggestions on how I can find my niche just leave a message at the bottom here or follow me on face-book, Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
