No Whales 🐋 in Wales #justsaying

My daughter and I spent a few days staying in Lampeter, Ceredigion, Wales. UK, 4th to 6th April 2023.

They call it glamping – the Shepherd’s hut https://www.linktr.ee/Caemanal It was lovely! See the link above for more pictures and information.

Caemanal

This would be a lovely place to come and stay for longer in warmer weather if peace and quiet is your aim and you love walking.

We went walking in the Eryri National Park and drove for miles down narrow winding roads. Had to stop every so often to open and close gates. Then down what almost seemed like a drop to get back onto the main road.

We walked up a very steep slope. In fact there was a plake there to say someone had died on 6th June 1993. I remember that week, it was the week I got married. It was lovely on the 1st June, but the rest of the week heavy rain so this part of the world this walking area must have been very slippery. You can’t get a signal on your phone up here either.

Steep slope.

Coastline was very pretty. We unfortunately had some rain so we didn’t get opportunity to go and do all the National Trust castles that we intended to. Just because the main part of them would be visiting the gardens and not much fun in the rain. But on our way to Wales we did go to Powis Castle.

Beautiful gardens at Powis Castle

We listened on our way there to an Audible story about a teenage girl and her boyfriend that went missing after an evening out.

The Night She Disappeared.

Fortunately, not until the next day did I wake in the morning with stomach ache. At the moment I’m taking one tablet a day but they don’t seem to help all that much. But I hope when I start consuming my Live Good products I will feel better.

Not the greatest thing for me to listen to. As I am an Empath and I feel another person’s pain. As a Mother too I could empathise with the Mother who worried about the whereabouts of her teenage daughter. This, my mobile not working well, not holding the charge and I’d forgotten to bring the cigarette lighter charger kicked off my Gastritis. Well, my friends tell me I’m always on my phone. The reason is I operate my small business from my IPhone and respond daily to notifications and messages . My posts drive Inbound web traffic to my links. I like to be in contact consistently with my friends too.

When I’m feeling off colour I don’t tell anyone, so I never mentioned my discomfort to my daughter and we went out for the day and had meals and enjoyed ourselves and I just suffered in silence.

Towards the end of the day I felt really sick so then I said I’d felt ill all day, Then I was sick and my stomach really hurt at this point. My daughter suggested I took Ibuprofen and paracetamol which did work.

Had a good night’s sleep and then we travelled back home.

Are You Exploring A New Direction for 2023 – 😜

2020 – 2022 have been challenging years for all of us, but in every adversity lies the seed of an equal or greater opportunity.

We may feel depleted, emotional and overwhelmed by events which can make us feel we want to retract and do nothing. But it is important to join forces with others, seek God in prayer and push forward.

We know we must keep moving forward and remain positive and expect life to go better for us. When we remain positive and have inner conviction new doors open up.

My passion is Entrepreneurialism, encouraging and supporting others to reach their potential.

Do these attributes resonate with you?

I am aspiring on a daily bases to develop these characteristics.

Juggling life with family, maintaining a prayer life, bible study and belief in myself and what I could achieve.

” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” .

My journey as an Entrepreneur had some challenges, striving to be seen as a expert online with Social Media Marketing and earning an income to put food on the table. Only 24 hours in the day. Most of the work offered was commission only, Affiliate Marketing drained my resources, the remunerations were too low.

Network-Marketing consists of building a network of people subscribing to a service. When the network buy their service, we get paid a percentage and earn bonuses. This is called leveraging and gives a residual income.

Great news for inspiring Entrepreneurial people who are interested to start their own business, follow a proven system and receive mentoring and support from others who have made themselves successful. Part of which Leadership skills are offered to help you get with your limiting beliefs within yourself and learn how to deal with objections.

2023 – I joined the 🌏 Team. Joined the network UCAN2Network started by Mr Eric Gusevik –

Shop and buy nutritional & dietary products at wholesale prices while building a passive residue income lifestyle for yourself

God Is Good & Faithful. #justsaying

Life of a Christian is the brochure for others to see the Christian life played out.

By submitting all areas of our life to God in prayer we receive the daily help from the Holy Spirit. Us as Born Again believers, when we invite Jesus into our life and ask God to send the Holy Spirit to us, we have this life changing experience that the Holy Spirit guides us to live the life he has intended us to and we have to die to self.

By doing this life manifests the fruit of the spirit which is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.

We trust in the Lord for the forgiveness of our sins and in obedience and by asking for the help of the Holy Spirit, submit all areas of our lives to God in order that we are living the life he intended for us, according to our calling.

It is very easy to try and do things in your own strength especially when you are busy. Then you forget all about God and spending time in the word. Then your path isn’t straight and you start to encounter all sort of problems and difficult times. Connecting and spending time with the wrong people who don’t know the Lord, they don’t understand your faith and sometimes try and manipulate you and subject you to their way of living and because you love them you start getting into situations you can’t handle which gives you inner stress. That in turn causes all sorts of health problems.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and then all things will be given to you. This is actually a journey of faith and a daily prayerfully walk with God.

Twenty years ago I embarked on a Bible School with Christian Outreach Centre over a two year period. I had got divorced and given up the house I had worked hard for to pursue the calling on my life.

The Pastor told me not to try and go into the Ministry because it was important to be there for my children to make sure they stayed on the faithful path. Thankfully, they were both active Christians.

I can see the fruit of the spirit in their lives. My daughter is now a voluntary Chaplain at a local suicide spot and also works as a manager in the local government. My son is also a manager in an IT Consultancy.

They are responsible adults that I am proud of and walking independently from me in their faith walk.

Now in my autumn years of life I am able to pursue something that I felt I was called to do.

As part of my service in my church it was suggested to do the Sussex Gospel Partnership Course, which runs over two years. Aim is to strengthen and expand the gospel ministry. I go to a teaching workshop once a month.

God is faithfully and puts people along side you to sharpen you, strengthen your spirit and enable you to carry out the calling on your life when you submit all your plans to him.

Recently, I’ve had a prayer warrior placed in my life. We pray over our working establishment and for difficult situations that arise at work.

I’ve also received into my life a devout Christian Success Coach – Business Mentor. Godly minded, a man after God’s own heart and reflecting the goodness of his character. Has a good track record in the business development and works with integrity. He is the missing piece in the puzzle of my life.

The Onion

This thought came to mind…

………….after a music weekend away with a friend I’ve know for many years.

She always felt she knew me very well we were best friends who would talk about everything and anything, but now she feels that I’ve  changed so much, but she has too.

Since Lockdown and COVID, I’ve spent time really trying to deepen my relationship with Jesus. I start my day with prayers for my closest family, my friends, Christian friends, work colleagues and people that cross my path in need.

Then throughout that day (lunch time & at home) I listen to various Bible plans on the Bible app. 

I have found this of great benefit and it has given me wisdom and strengthened my discerning spirit.

My day job is hard, listening to callers saying they are struggling financially due to our current risen energy prices in this country.  Issues with homelessness and pending homelessness due to rising rents amongst other things. 

As I am talking for over seven hours each day so I need quality time alone to recuperate. I can’t spend 100% of my spare time in the company of others without getting to a point of burn out . 

At the weekends I need some quiet time to myself. 

Over this weekend once we were awake there was no time to have that quiet time until bed time.  Then that time was noisy too. 

Tv 📺 

These days I’m only streaming my tv from apps. Not watching Reality TV or watching soaps.

I tend to read the news online.  I can’t miss the up to date info- we get told at work the state of play so we can advise callers accordingly. I listen to personal development audio books while travelling in the car, walking or washing up.

I also follow various organisations on Twitter for real time news. 

People and their personalities are like an onion – intricate with

many layers- and sometimes you need to peel back a few layers to really appreciate what they are made of. 

My friend told me she was worried about me, that I was living in a different world to her. Sadly, this turned into a heated debate.

Wisdom and discernment has effected my motivations and what I want to spend my time doing, now in my autumn years I feel life is short and I intend to spend my free time working towards something that will honour Jesus, give money to needy causes etc.

My day job role requires me to wear a mask. First layer of an onion. There are  certain ways I have to behave and appear when I interact with others. This makes me look more logical, reasonable and analytic personality even though sometimes I feel very emotional due to individuals situations.

I have to have a non bias opinion of what others do in their lives. Equality & Diversity is all around and I am not allowed an opinion on it.  Deal with people and not judge their choices. 

I’ve spent the last 35+ years being Entrepreneurial and used the internet but most of my friends have no idea about this aspect of my life. Computers/technology haven’t been their interest but I love technology. I have learnt so much in all these years. 

Life is a journey and it’s important to move forward and embrace different opportunities and realise that our decisions to do different things shouldn’t make us wrong!

It’s important for us to say, think and speak in a positive way towards others and also about ourselves. Otherwise your life is difficult and you are drawing negativity to yourself.

I believe that Jesus has given me new friendships in the past year and I have got to know others who have been in the background of my life.

The second layer of the onion is where  your mask is taken off. People become more themselves when they are at home with  family, friends  or the ones closest to them. They are not  too cautious about how they are seen and communicate with others. In this layer we tend to take our mask off with our first connections.

The sub layers of this mid layer are personality, your values, your vision and your perspective of life.

People are here more open to talk about their real inner self.It is much easier to communicate at this layer. People are more friendly, more welcoming and open in building longer relationship.

The third layer is the deep layer which only you know yourself. It is where you hide your feelings, emotions, thoughts, desires, wishes, fears nobody can reach, It is also the layer where you hide your heart, loves, disappointments, burdens. It is called the bottom of  heart.

This layer is the sources of life time relationships and strong trust to each other.

There is another layer which is the  deepest and hidden that even people themselves  don’t know or not aware about it. Some people with so called 6th sense, can reach or read this layer. This layer has direct connection to subconscious. 

What is your Passion and Purpose? (2)

Four days in to my new life as a Care Support worker (Nurse)  wasn’t going well.   Basically, I don’t have the strength to man-handle people on their beds to wash them etc.

On the first day I found it very emotional.  I realise that we all take advantage of the freedom we have in our lives.  Most of us have no health issues and can get up and go for a walk when ever we feel like it.  Many of the people this particular Homecare Services take care of do not have that option but are relying on someone to do just simple tasks for them…

I met a lovely Christian lady who knew someone that I know and she only had the use of her right hand and can just about move her head.  She was always very bright and cheerful and intelligent.  I could feel myself getting quite tearful as I could empathise how frustrating it must be for a bright minded person to be trapped inside a body that can’t function.

With only the use of one arm she was keen to get onto her lap-top and communicate with her friends via email and with the use of her one arm could use the phone to call out.

I don’t know anything about MS but have since found this page on Facebook –

http://www.facebook.com/nationalmssociety.

I love “Technology” – I would like to put a project together and raise funds to create applications to help people with MS and other disabilities.

This would be a good purpose that i could give my God given skills to accomplish something that would be of benefit to a great number of people, so it is important for me to realise that in my own strength I can do nothing, I need to rely on the Grace of God to be lead to the work that he needs me to accomplish…

 

What is your Passion and Purpose?

My passion and purpose is to be an Entrepreneur and to inspire others to use their gifts.  It all started with the fact that our family history on my Father’s side originates from the Native Sioux Indian, via Grandmother who was in the Entertainments Business with Buffalo Bill‘s Circus

Sioux Indian’s are very spiritual – I have to confess to not knowing that much about them sadly but I do know and understand that they were very Psychic –  and my Father had inherited the gift of PsychometryHe was very good at this and helped a lot of people.  Lots of people came to our home to have a consultation.

I had a really good relationship with my father until my mother and I joined the local Church of England Church and I was confirmed in 1971.  I think following the Christian faith and spiritually it was rather conflicting.  Spiritualism is part of the Occult – Darkness v Light.  after my Confirmation my father and I didn’t get along so well.

I was musical, was involved with singing and I learnt to play the guitar at school, participated in the choir and our school regularly put on concerts and musicals, both at my junior and the secondary school that I attended though being a Christian at school was another conflicting situation, so I didn’t have many friends and when I left school I went straight into Banking.  I worked hard but didn’t get promotion and then was introduced to a job at the local theatre setting up the drinks in the interval.  For seven years I used to work over 60 hours a week, in the Bank during the day and at the Theatre in the evenings.

In my early twenties I was re-united with my school friend who had chosen to go into the Hairdressing profession and she led me into Network Marketing,  while I was out and about in the evening with Party Planning I met my future husband,

From time to time I had gone along and had the occasional Tarot card reading, which strangely enough from time to time was quite accurate and just before I was due to marry I went and had my birth chart drawn up.  Sadly, I lost the information but did remember that I was told not to get married to this person, that we would be in conflict all the time! Well, it was too late to back out and hurt a lot of people so we got married in 1993 and had two lovely children, who are now teenagers and a great credit to us both, but sadly our relationship didn’t survive and we divorced in 2002.

SERVANT

When i had my birth-chart drawn up I was also advised that I was going to be a “Servant” “Writer” and also a “Nurse”

Well life being a journey and all these possibilities didn’t seem like they would happen to me at the time.

The years that followed the marriage break-up have been challenging and I have been glad of my involvement with the Church as a solid foundation to build my life on the ROCK of Jesus Christ.  I committed my life to Jesus and became “Born Again” in 1997, my son was born in this year and also my Mother past away.

In my early twenties through to my late thirties I was on the committee for a local social club and had a very active social life also so community building is something I have learnt with recruiting people into the club

When my children were at their junior school  I used to be a leader via the church with their youth club, I undertook this position for seven years. This also led me to go into their school with other church leaders for the “Jesus and Me Club”called “JAM Club”

In 2002 – I went back to college as a mature student and undertook the City and Guilds Diploma in IT ( the link is for info – I studied at Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne) and also changed my church and joined the Christian Outreach Centre Movement and undertook the Spirit, Soul and Body Bible School for two years.                                                                                        Within the Church we undertook the D.I.S.C personality test  and this is where I then understood the concept the Servant and Servant Leadership.    

Click on the link above to read the section “Characteristics of being a Servant Leader”

Thankfully due to my working life I have gained the experience to be a good communicator  and I am competent to make decisions.            My Spiritual Gifts give me the discernment to pay attention to what remains unspoken and it is therefore important to listen to my inner voice\affimation from the Holy Spirit.  I can rely on that inner voice in order to understand what the body, mind and spirit are communicating.        I really love technology and I have been willing to follow and learn from the Social Media Experts and Geeks to learn all i can and now my ideal client is someone who is a true Entrepreneur. Combing with my passion for music really gives me the passion to help Musicians though i am willing to extend my services to everyone connected with the Entertainments Industry.    In the past three years I have got involved with the local “Rock Music Community of Bands and Supporters and have made connectiions and new friends via their Community in London and World-wide.

WRITER –

I created this Blog – Daily Ramblings of a Professional Networker  

to portray the “Life of Networking” online and offline. A diary of life experiences.   I have had severe writer’s block for the past two years when i started to combine it with “Encouragement and Life Coaching”  I had started to train to be a “Life Coach” but finding the people who wanted a coach and also the people i wanted to coach was a challenge.  This is something i have had to put on hold temporarily for the time being though I pro-actively work as a Personal IT Coach and share articles and write articles that i share as a Social Media Expert.

NURSE

I am about to embark on a course to train to be a Carer in the Community.  I will be looking after people that rely on someone to come in and help them to remain independant by staying in their own homes.   I will be doing this on a part time basis so i can also continue with my passion and purpose as an Entrepreneur to network with those that have the heart-felt motivation to inspire others to use their Entreprenerial Talents especially in the Entertainments Industry…

Today I had another session with my Coach…

Today, I had my 2nd session with Ruth who is taking me through an accreditation to coach with Coachnet.org

It has taken me well over a year to mentally and emotionally be in the right place to begin to learn to be an accredited Coach. I have know Ruth quite a while so I feel at ease with her.  I received three months coaching with my senior Pastor at my church prior to this decision, during a session I was able to uncover the plan and purpose for my life.  I was able to realise this by using a powerful Ministry Gifts profiling I could see what my strengths and weaknesses were and what occupation I could use my gifts in….My main strength is the gift of Encouragement, partly stems from the fact that as a child I didn’t receive very much encouragement myself and therefore I know how important and the impact it can have on you to receive it….

The underpinning knowledge and system I will be learning is based on being a Life  Coach though I plan to use my new skills as a Business Coach.to assist young adults from 18 years onwards.

‘If you would go every day to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp axe, eventually, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down!!!

Basically, it is the same with Network-Marketing, in this case the FREE DREAM_TRIP you offer people the chance to have a free vacation, all they need to do is register and watch this movie   – http://connector.windreamtrips.com  Some people you ask won’t bother as they don’t believe you when you tell them there is no catch.  Some people start watching the movie and when they see what it speaks about they give up half-way through so they then don’t activate the email that states they have watched the movie, so they don’t get in to the draw.  Some people say point blank they don’t want the opportunity.   Some of the people that actually watch the movie, may see and understand the opportunity and know it is for them, these are the people that I will work with.  Well to find these people it is almost like looking for a needle in a Haystack.  It wasn’t until I got involved with this business that I began to see how many negative and unmotivated people there were around, my own friends and relatives included!

Well, it is a numbers game to find those few people you need to ask just about everyone you come in contact with.  So basically, you are back to this trust element – would people you have never spoken to before actually believe that out of the blue a total stranger would be offering them an opportunity to have a free vacation, no strings attracted!   Sounds wildly unlikely doesn’t it  – though in this case it is true as I am sure that if I persevere with my dream to achieve the living  and a better lifestyle I will find other people who want to have the same.

I was taught a number of years back that the plan in a Christian’s walk was to be blessed so that in turn I would be able to give and bless others.  Recently, someone sneered that it was a bad suggestion to be wealthy, but in fact the aim to be wealthy is to be in the position to give back to the community

. A wise man once said, ‘Effort only releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.’

Today, here and now I do not have a lot of money, I have a small income coming in every week but that is not enough to pay all my bills and move towards my dreams.  However, I keep positive thoughts and continue to strive forward to meet the challenges and believe that the resources will be available to me when I need them.

Life is that journey and only when we are in the right place, opportunities, resources and the people we need to make it happen will be available to us.   With my World Ventures business – it is people and not money that are the resources that I need to build the team and network of people that will give me the residual income.  Due to the Binary plan – and two team legs, I just need 30 people more and I will be a Senior Representative.   Basically, I need six people with the same mindset as me that can then bring six more people into this business team and then we have our 30 people, I may even win BMW.

Vision doesn’t follow resources, it happens the other way around. First we have a dream, then we have to move forward. Then-and only then-do people and resources follow. Then the plan God has given to us begins to fall into place. A wise man once said, ‘Effort only releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.’ People who succeed ‘see’ what others don’t. It’s what keeps them moving forward. ‘It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.’

 

The greatest gap between successful people and unsuccessful people is the thinking gap.

This is especially so when it comes to failure. Successful people see failure as a regular part of success, and they get over it.

When you try and do something and you fail, you know you need to try something new next time.

Attitude changes not to feel a failure but to feel that indeed life is full of challenges waiting to be overcome.

Successful people keep learning and moving forward.  Keeping that positive attitude in your mind will enable you to move forward in what you want to do!
