Get Up and Go


There are times in life when everything is overwhelming and when life, well it can get you down, it feels as though every fiber of your being is bland. As though all the life, love and energy has been somehow magically drained for your essence and seeped into the dirt of the earth.

I have to admit that’s how I felt the last couple of days but its at times like this when we have a choice, recoil into that darkness or shake off the dust and make a choice to surge forward. Make a choice to say I’m better than my surroundings and I’m better than my emotions. To say I chose to be worthy of the calling upon my life. To say I will get up and go. No excuses, no feeling sorry for myself, just raw passion and motivation to get that thing, whatever it may be for you, done.

I’ve gotten to that point now but one song that I listened to only a little while ago helped jerk that reaction in me so I thought I would share it with you. Its ‘Feel Again’ by One Republic who are an amazing band and the video is below. I hope you enjoy it


So I hope that song has either given you a boost or just reminded you how awesome life can be if you make the choice to see the beauty and the potential in it. Additionally I wanted to share with you lovely readers that within the next week I will be posting a video asking for your help in deciding what book I’m going to pitch to agents/publishers over the next few weeks. So watch out for that video and for a snazzy poll, oh yes, a snazzy poll.

Until next time be blessed, stay strong and never give up,
God Bless,

The Olympics and Me


Hello Readers!
So as an English lass this years Olympics have held a special place in my heart and while I wasn’t able to be in the UK for the entire Olympics I was able to be in London for the opening ceremony which was incredible!!! In order to share with you just how wonderful the experience of being there for the Opening ceremony was I’m going to share with you the short poem thing I wrote on July 27th sitting in Victoria Park with my sister gleaming with pride as my home country I’ve always loved with a fierce passion got ready to show the world just how incredible a small island can be.


Sitting in a bustling Victoria Park with union jacks and shining screens surrounding me

My grinning sister sits next to me and a flags plastered on my arm

There’s no need to describe this feeling but I’ll do my best to try


Pride and Jubilation bubbling inside of me


I may not be a Londoner but I am an English lass. The world is looking at the British isles and the country gleams with pride
We may be a small island but when push comes to shove there is a quiet and undeniable strength here

And as English summer clouds gather and the Olympic ceremony nears I can’t help but smile


It’s an event of a lifetime, a shining moment of my already crazy life

This moment is extraordinary

In fact it might even be perfect


I hope you liked this short poem thing as I like to say. The Olympics have been truly amazing and I’m so proud of Great Britain right now. There was a lot of doubt in regards to the Olympics in London and in short I feel its safe to say London 2012 kicked butt. I know this year with the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics has sparked a new wave of patriotism in the UK and I hope it sticks around for a while.

I’m very proud of the Olympics and I’m very proud to be English/British.

Until next time be blessed, stay strong and never give up,
God Bless,

Grace Hatton
