My name is Bella. I started this blog on 7th March 2016. I live in the United Kingdom.
This is a simple blog, created to inspire and motivate myself and anyone else who might be aligned to what is being shared here.
I have a taken much benefit from self-development from a personal, professional, and spirituality. This is what I want to share here, in terms of what I have learnt, or whatever it is I am currently contemplating or practicing.
I have a passion for meditation, self-improvement, inner peace, and always trying to find positive ways to be happy in difficult situations. But, not just in difficult situations; balance and harmony are needed in our day to day life. One moment we are happy and another we are flat on the floor.
I believe our thoughts and feelings really impact our life, there could be nothing difficult in our life at present, yet we are so unhappy. Why is that?
I also have a need for orderliness in the home and life, though I may not always live up to it. I believe orderliness impacts our happiness too.
I love quotes, meditation commentaries and inspiring stories so you will find a few those shared on this blog too.
Additionally, in 2019 – 2021 you will that this blog has become a place
- for me to express my thoughts in a more poetic form as I explorer creative writing.
- I have also hosted interviews with other bloggers and their journey’s.
- I have even created a YouTube channel . Initially I created ‘How to Video’ to help the blogging community on WordPress.com, but now I am branching out into Meditation and more positive thinking stuff (this could be the way I do podcasts going forward – 30.8.2021).
- I have created a free newsletter using Mailchimp
- I have also created a Supporters page – To support this blog financially .
- I have also created podcasts series.
- I also create Graphics on Canva.com (another paid service), which those who have taken up this services have appreciated.
So you can see I am playing around with different technologies to share the message of this blog, that is, Change your the way you think and your life will change. I share blogging tips as I am a blogger and it is helpful to all on WordPress.com.
This blog is an expression of the above, to help me on my growth journey and hopefully, it will inspire you.
My Author Journey
In 2020 I started to think about writing books. In July 2020, I started a very rough zero draft in a notebook and then stopped.
In June /July 2021, I restarted the draft zero draft, but now I am typing it out as messy Outline / the book. I know nothing about writing a book, editors, development editors, beta readers, marketing, query letters, layout, and God knows what else but, I am ‘Excited’ to learn.
When I eventually publish it, I might use a Pen Name. I have a long way to go; I am not a writer like many of you. But, there are books in me that I want to share, and I think they will be helpful. I feel this because this blog is showing me specific topics are a big hit here. These topics are the topics I employed in my life to help me fix myself.
On 30th August 2021 reached 5k words in my first zero messy draft. I make a note of this here as a reminder to me of my journey of writing books.

My deepest feelings about life
I believe that the thoughts we generate impact our life greatly. If we are able to change our thoughts, redirect them, catch our negative cycles of thinking, we can then change our life and our impact on the world.
A thought is the seed of an action/deed, if we can stop the wrong seeds from being sown, we can live happily and have the courage to always do the right thing.
If we learn to realign thoughts once we have been hurt to something more positive, we grow stronger, more capable and we become stable with quiet confidence we can handle anything.
Additionally, we set a new habit of always being honest, truthful, clear, sincere and humble in a very gently assertive way.
Me and Meditation
Some of the thoughts shared here are from my readings, personal experiences, and are inspired by the teaching of Raja Yoga Meditation (everything Raja Yoga teaches is FREE of charge, so if you are Free, why not take a peek)
I have been a meditator of Raja Yoga since the tender ages of 11, when my mother took me in the summer holidays. I have been meditating on and off for 30+ years. However, it is only the last 15 -20 years where I have got into gear.
Frankly, when you learn something so young, you don’t appreciate it, it is only when life throws the ugly stuff at you that you realise. I am not cool, calm or collected all of the time, I do fall apart but I can get myself back and meditation helps as well as positive thinking and doing.
