Frost - Word of the Week


My word this week is frost.
I looked out of the window and it's all that I could see. It's so cold, dark and dismal. It's no wonder people start making plans for the future months, January is abysmal. 

Let me continue with a quote from Robert Frost.

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life; it goes on."
Isn't that just simply true. Sometimes you may feel like life isn't going anywhere, you are not achieving anything, nothing seems worthwhile. In actual fact, life is short, too short, and even shorter for some. So, you have to make the most of it, whatever you do.

Life goes on. You have to take it as it comes. I spend day after day stuck in the house, feeling like I've achieved nothing. But in actual fact I've achieved lots, I've even managed to keep breathing all day.

People make plans in January to brighten up the future months. They look forward and wish away the days.

Every day should be appreciated.
I want to feel grateful for everyday. Sometimes when I sit and think about it all the things I feel grateful for are the things that are static. Things like my family, a roof over my head, food on the table. I realise that some people don't have these things and I am lucky, but is it really gratitude I feel?

Sometimes you need to open up more and experience the world around you more.
It can be something someone does that is kind, it can be something you see that is wonderful, you just need to be thankful and let it all in.

When I did the Gratitude week in The Activation Game last year, I found it very difficult, I find it difficult to see the good things in life because the bad things are nearly always present in my mind.

From now on I will try harder. Life isn't that bad, there is always something to feel thankful for.

My frosty heart will thaw.

Today I will feel thankful for the frost on the grass outside my window....why? Simply because it's beautiful. If it was possible I'd go out there and feel it crunch beneath my feet. I used to love doing that. I may never be able to do it again but I have the memory of it and I'm thankful for that.

So, while the frost is unwelcome to many, to me it is something beautiful. And when it thaws, I will find more things to be thankful for. Life goes on.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
