Do You Celebrate Halloween?

Do you celebrate Halloween?

I know it’s a big thing in the USA and to a lesser extent we in the UK celebrate it too, but what is Halloween and where did it come from? I’ve been doing a bit of research to find out what it’s all about.

Halloween is one of the oldest celebrations in the world and is thought to have evolved from a pre-Christian festival called Samhain which was celebrated over 2,000 years ago. Samhain was celebrated by the Celts (people who lived in what is now the UK, Ireland and northern France) on 31st October each year. They believed that the dead returned to earth on this day.

From Chaos You Can Get Clarity

This post is going to show you that sometimes, from chaos you can get clarity. Real clarity. Something that smacks you in the face and makes you sit up and take notice.

I think I always knew this, but recently things have happened to demonstrate just how impactful this can be.

I’m having a new kitchen fitted at the moment and I totally underestimated how much chaos it was going to bring to my home and my life.

I have been without a kitchen sink and dishwasher for over 2 weeks now which means I have had to resort to washing up in the bath. I know, what a hardship right. Yes I get it but kneeling on the hard tiled floor trying to wash my dishes in the tub is no fun I can tell you.

Oh, and as well as no sink, the fridge has had to be moved to the garden-room. We stuck the microwave on top of it so that, in essence, is my kitchen. A fridge with a microwave on top and a little table to the side of it with some cutlery on it.

How To Avoid Being Added To Email Lists

Are you wondering how to avoid being added to email lists? It’s a nuisance isn’t it? We click on something online and the next thing we know is we are being bombarded with emails from someone we don’t know.

To be honest, most of us end up on email lists because we have requested something online – a freebie or a trial offer or a discount for something.

We wanted the freebie, or the trial but we didn’t want the endless emails that followed it. Why do we get these and how can we stop them?

Are Your Goals Letting You Down?

Are your goals letting you down? You might think that is a strange thing to ask. After all, goals are meant to help you achieve things, so how could they be letting you down?

During my 4 years studying for my psychology degree I learnt a thing or two about goal setting, both in terms of how they work psychologically and how they help you achieve the things you set your heart on.

But goals that are not properly defined, lack emotion or imagination or that have no specific end date are most definitely going to let you down and here’s why…
