Confused - Because I want it all.

Guys, I'm usually here giving you a little bit of advice.

Today I fancy having yours...

Maybe you will relate. In fact, if you have ever had a dream I am fairly sure you will relate.

If you have followed my blog for some time now you will know I am a mature student at university.  I do love my course.  I love the sense of achievement and having deadlines to meet.  Routine is great and I totally love it.   Subjects fill me with so much passion for science and the nutritional direction in which public health is going.




However..... part of me really wants to carry on and do a PhD.  This might lead to a great job.  Do I want a JOB?  Is it really the dream? OR is the dream to write, travel, make films?  To be honest, I think it is yet I get caught up in the whirlwind of study and achieving. 

Writing on this blog, for example, the only person patting me on the back is you, the reader.  Sometimes even showing me with the view counts.  So while I haven't been paying so much attention to my views recently, I have just hopped over and taken a look. I'm astounded.  Amazing... since my Najowrimo (about Journalling) blog post a couple of weeks ago there are so many of you have signed up to get my blog posts to your inbox via the signup box on this website and I feel that is a definite pat on the back.  Thank you. 


If you have ever tried meditating on 'what you really want' you might be amazed and surprised.  I intend to begin creating such meditations.  Honestly since the law of attraction came into my life so much has changed. It's incredible.  So, then I get inspired to show you guys once again where to start with the law of attraction, what it has done for me and how you can live your life the law of attraction way to really go and live your dreams.....

Living my dream...


What would you do???

Our trip to Centre Parcs

You will love this, we had a great time within the trees! Did you see our recent videos of our trip to Centre Parcs in Woburn Forest?


We love all that Centre parts has to offer Just love it!

Would we recommend Woburn Forest? Absolutely.  

The swimming pool has enough whirls and swirls and activities to keep us amused for hours on end.  Walking through the tress is just refreshing and soul filling.  The accommodation quite second to none.

Our second visit here, I could gladly stay for a long time!

Much love

Love Journalling? You'll love Najowrimo

Journaling. Publicised like crazy and definitely a pastime that has won my heart. 

‘They’ say journalling is therapeutic. Spaghetti braining it’s way out of ones head and onto paper. 

Clarity. 


Helpful? Yes, I believe so. 




Reading back over my journals takes me to a place of familiarity. It sounds like my head yet seldom do I recall writing it. Enabling me to focus and grab a sense of what I should be doing, what I need to be doing on this complicated earth while floating and dodging my way through this thing called life. 




Are you with me?
Do you often wonder?
What if I did this instead?
What will happen if I go there instead?
What should I be doing with my life?
How do I know I’m in the right job/right partner/right country?
Am I destined for better things?
Is this you and your thoughts too?

Finding a little gem over on my Twitter, I realised there is a thing called Najowrimo. You may remember I participated in July. Journalling through July I loved reading back over my najowrimo journey. 
Excited, I realise this also happens in October 1st again for a month!

For me, there will become a time when I sense a need to publish my najowrimo in a book. For you, maybe the same, maybe not. Let me say this, you are likely writing the story of your life as well as someone else’s. Write to them. Solve their issue and your books will fly off the virtual shelves. 
Want to try it?

Much love

Cornish Retreats for you!

Exciting news! The Lusher Life brand is coming to Cornwall.

You may have followed my stores on Youtube.  We have been looking for a property in Wales to buy and use as a retreat for both ourselves and for others.  Being guided, we have now closed a sale on this beautiful home in Cornwall.  Now, before you get excited,  I'm not going to be taking bookings just yet as there is lots to do.  We are installing a hot tub, log burner and some beautiful outside furniture too.  

Something I love about camping is sitting around the campfire at the end of the day.  Even if it's cold. Wrapping up in blankets and toasting marshmallows on the fire is just special.  Family time is super special.  I really want one of these outdoor pieces of furniture.  

Ohh think of the house shopping that's going to come our way! How exciting is this!!!

So make sure you follow this journey.  Here's what we will be able to offer you:

* Somewhere for you and the family alone (sleeps up to 9 people)
* Somewhere for you alone to come and join us for our courses
* Law of attraction retreats
* Wellness retreats
* Writers retreats
* Youtuber retreats (FANTASTIC VLOG opportunities)

The retreat has (FREE) indoor swimming pool, golf, gym, wake boarding, flo rider, total wipeout, fishing, 5km walks, close to amazing cornish beaches and great local restaurants with award winning chefs! Honestly, this place is incredible.

The strange thing? I had this on my vision board for around 4 years hoping to get there to holiday.  Now, we are going to be owning the place and organising the holidays, the retreats, everything.  This law of attraction stuff really works and I'm excited to be welcoming you along and learning how to successfully use the law of attraction into your own lives. 

Watch this space as we sign on the dotted line and get going with new website creations and the like to enable you to get onboard with all there is to offer here!

Heard of Rick Stein? He's just down the road!

Sneak peek at the retreat

You guys are going to love it here.  I'm going to love it too.  Very exciting times ahead!

Much love

You won't believe me when I tell you...

It's so hard for me to get here, to my amazing desk space and write to you.  

Writing is my passion, you know this by now and not a day goes by when I don't mentally touch base with the blog I write at now. I love it.  Oh I do wish Blogger would make an app you can post to.  They are owned by google so what the ****?  An app would allow me to share with you on the go, you know like you do stuff on the loo and all?  Yup I'm that girl too.  (How long can I 'get away' with calling myself a girl?)

The local harbour where we are buying the new home
So today is Mums 78th birthday.  Bless her.  We have had an official diagnosis of mixed dementia (alzheimers and vascular) and it's a very sad time but in our house it seems quite the opposite. On good days, we are doing loads, creating lots of memories and doing exciting things like going for lunch and buying second homes... more on that in the next blog post. Have you added to get your emails when I post?

Mum, Jasmine and I at mums birthday 'do'
Wanting more time to write, I shall add photos here for now as I am hopping over to write quickly on the laptop which has a work in progress book following Mums time from here.  Another blog is being designed by  a wonderful web designer for me and I will give you details of that blog later.  It's called Dementia,  Mum and me. 


Love this space



Pretty cottage.

Can't beat the waterside...

Until next time, much love to you all

ANFI DEL MAR BEACH, Gran Canaria VLOG





This beach was just the loveliest place ever! After floating in the sea as you can see here, I felt so different.  What happened to me?  Was it the salt water?  Was I grounding?  I'm not sure but I do know I felt so much energy it was amazing.  Hardly ever do i get that level of energy.



Have you been to Gran Canaria?  How did you love it?



Love always

This isn't Wales...

Definitely not Wales.  This is Cornwall.






Wales still has my heart. I love it there. Love to spend time there and need to spend more time there.  For Sure.  Yet Cornwall is just delightful too.  A beautiful place with breathtaking (literally) views of rugged coastline.  The beaches, the sand, the joy on surfers faces.  Reminded me I didn't need to be in Australia for this feeling.  It was right here.




What's making me ponder?

Stopping off at Babbacoombe on the Way.  Gorgeous




I know I can visit Wales. I'm not aiming to make up my mind about settling down for retirement (I know that will be full of travel all over).













Yet I've a responsibility to Mum.  To give her a place to be in her twilight years where she can look at a view;  spend time with us.  To create photo books and memories.






Could it be here as well as wherever the Wanderlust takes us?












Surfers


Could I learn to surf perhaps?




 


For sure I need to eat more fresh fish! That could be on the cards.  All those Omega 3 fatty acids for my brain...




Life felt simplistic today...



Beautiful Padstow is a haven for artists.  I'll leave the paintbrushes alone and keep the camera handy instead.  Makes complete sense.







A writers retreat?

Law of attraction and feelings

Currently I'm reigniting my knowledge of the importance of feelings when using the law of attraction in your life.

This blog was born for the law of attraction teachings I learn along the way but I want to briefly share this with you this morning:  We are not perfect.
Do not (please) give yourself a hard time if things are not working for you.  Soon, I will be sharing an in depth blog post about this but I am in the throes of learning how to explain it best for you.  Asking is not enough.  It's about the feeling which is where the "Belief" part comes into play.  We need to believe.  Why? Because then we have more change of acting as if.  Honestly.

Recently, you may have seen I have been uploading many travel vlogs on Youtube.  The feeling I got from the last holiday was one of sheer fun and excitement.  I feel I could have manifested anything at this time.

A snippet of karaoke in this video will have you see me at the end full of life and vibrancy.  I could have almost shouted how excited and happy I felt.  Creating these feelings often enough will see you with the happy feeling you need to go forward with life.  It's not easy. This is where I feel I differ from some of the other law of attraction people you may read.  I don't pretend it's easy. Or that life is just plain sailing.  I know it isn't.  But try.  Do something to make you smile.  Watch a funny film, play you favourite music, look over old photos of good times.

Wishing you much love

Louise xoxo

Why I'm not doing #veda

Good morning from a sunny Kent.  Finally.  We have sun!

This year for the first time in a while I'm not doing VEDA.  

What is VEDA?

Standing for Vlog Everyday in August, veda is when you tubers decide to vlog each day and publish. It's a fab way to connect with each other using the hashtag #veda

Last Month (July) I did a fair bit of vlogging and travelling.  Most of which still needs to be edited and uploaded.  But I will get there.  So there will be uploads from me but i need to get on top of all the other bits and bobs.  We will still be having some adventures and uploading them.  Off to Cornwall soon which is actually for business but i'm still excited! Then we have a Centre Parcs visit which is exciting more than exciting! 

Watch my place on the internet over on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/louiseusher which will encourage me to get those edits done!

Our recent trip to Gran Canaria.

Can you help? I'm looking for a new vlog camera.  I can't decide if I should go for a DSLR, a camcorder or update my phone....?  What would you do?  Connect with me on twitter to let me know what you prefer. 

What are you up to? Are you doing VEDA?  Leave your channel below as I love to see those! 

Much love

Louise xoxo

Journalling lifes ups and downs #najowrimo

31st July – the end of Najowrimo for this time.

As we head towards the end of this Najowrimo I can’t tell you of a time I ever felt more of a rollercoaster journey in my entire life. It’s more up and down than ever with stomach churning bumps along the way. 

Feeling more lost than ever before.  Confused and lost.

Personal life challenges are popping up in ways I had not envisaged.  Friends are, I feel, dropping off along the way as I complain consiousnessly.  They don’t reach out the same.  Is it me? Or them? Or the summer holidays perhaps. 

The questions I ask myself are these.

What is the job I should be doing?
Now, I know this answer, heck I coach people with the answer.  Yet here I sit wondering if I should still be chasing my tail around an NHS hospital helping others with their health when mine fails me enough to know this job can’t quite be achieved.

Should I be looking for love?
I’m guessing not.  If it’s to be found, it will find me I guess.

How long will my mum be with us on this earth?
Why do I question that? I should live every day with her as if it were her last.  Embracing her crazy ways,  listening to her famous laugh enough to store it in my memory forever. Then of course comes the mental funeral planning.  With this I have on occasions questioned my own mortality.

Will I be well enough to dance again?
My toes still tap.  But I miss dance.  Can’t speak any more about this.

Where did the girl go who I was?
Great question. I don’t know the answer.  Do we evolve so much in one lifetime that we lose our old selves?  Or can people do this to us?  If we allow them to, does this mean we can revert back to who we were? 
I was searching for more questions right then as I sit here in the coffee shop early on this drizzly morning.  Cyndi Lauper starts the music at 9am as the shops begin to open. 
Time after time.  
“If you’re lost you can look and you will find me.  Time after time.”
I could cry again. 

This crazy stupid thing called life is also so wonderful.  The lessons I have learned on my law of attraction journey show me that part of this journey is the ups and downs, otherwise everything seems grey, beige, vanillawe get used to the stuff being good rather than when it’s good punching the air and shouting YESSSSS with that amazing belly feeling which leaves you smiling and excited.  But those downs can be a little meh.  Even the big guys, those real true gurus I watch go through it.  None of us humans are perfect. This we know to be true. 

Going through life, creating memories and sharing stories of things that happened in the past over a coffee or a wine (or even a pepsi max) is what I guess it’s all about.  Creating those memories and storing them is a must in my opinion.  Which is why I love to blog, vlog, take photos and journal.  Try it? 

Many things still remain a mystery to me.  Maybe I’m considered young.  There must still be lessons to be learned.  We all feel so often that we are fumbling through life just bumbling along but perhaps that’s the point.  What we must learn is to embrace the good and the bad.  My tears flow today still since the emotions of yesterdays funeral and listening to the amazing Euilogy.  My father in law fought in the war.  They offered him the union jack on the coffin and the last post to be played.  Thank god they declined.  The emotions of that to honour him would have been amazing but perhaps too much. 



My point here is my tears are flowing silently and I can’t stop them, just in the same way you sometimes can’t stop belly laughing even if you try.  These emotions just happen. 

Go with it. 


Create moments to relive in the rocking chair days of your life.

Shall I quit love? (A Najowrimo excert)


This excert is from my NaJoWrimo efforts as I write each day though July.  In this very open and honest post, you see me talking about why I'm thinking of quitting love.

Releasing this writing and all of July NaJo (with my personal snapshots) will be available in book form on  Amazon soon! Follow this page so you know when! 




July 14th


The Wonder of You

Strange dreams sees me awakening with an odd feeling inside my heart.  As a bride in the dream I was disappointed.  A five-minute ceremony with strangers I hardly knew left me wondering about love this morning.  Will I ever have it all?  Is there such a thing?  I watch couples on this holiday of a myriad of situations.  There is Elvis who sang Wonder of you to his wife at Karaoke in between using the microphone as an opportunity to publicly declare his love for this lady.  They were older than me, I would say late 50s and clearly had lots of love between them.

After Elvis left the stage, his wife pretty much ran from her seat to greet him with love and affection, cupping his face with her hands and planting a proper kiss on his lips.  Not proper as in French kissing but a real, heartfelt, true kiss.  She meant it.  No denying that.  They had a balance between being publically decent and showing true love.  A rare thing I feel these days.  Now when I look around the restaurant I generally see couples who have nothing to say to each other, seem disinterested or even at times one partially turns the chair away.  Of course there is the odd Tut when someone says something the other is frustrated with or has simply lost their tolerance to.  Why is that?  What happened between them?  Would it have been an affair?  Some other form of hurt which broke them forever and never quite allowed things to be the same way again.

Do you know of the film Love Actually?  Emma I forget her surname which is unforgivable as she is one of my favourite actresses yet its very early in the morning here who plays a wife who is very nearly cheated on by her husband (who buys the necklace for the secretary) at Christmas while the wife is left with the usual Jonie Mitchell CD  This realization moment is priceless as she heads to the bedroom to take a breathing moment before taking the children to the school nativity.  I cry everytime as the soft music accompanies this scene Ive looked at life from both sides now.  We fall in love with this character who seems to be the perfect mother and wife as well as sister for her grieving brother.  All things to all people as many mums are.  Yet the fact that the husband bought the necklace for the secretary (to be honest, I dont think he really wanted to at all.  It was all very awkward which would see the wife with reason to forgive him) the wife decided that she would blot her tears with the palm of her hand before taking a deep breath, painting a smile and going back to jollying the children along.  After a while we see her confront her husband with the classic line which is something like, Do you carry on, knowing it will always be a little bit broken?  What a cracking line.  It will always be a little bit broken. 

Im long enough in the tooth now to know what that line means.  You stay because its easier, because you love that person, because life gets complicated when you break up, yet; things are never the same.  Is this life?  Is this what we should accept?  We are all human after all.  None of us is ever perfect. 
Yet,  Dear Diary (open heart moment) I feel I love with all of my heart.  I would never consider treating my loved one like that if they were also loving me with a whole heart. Yet in my years of loving people, not one has.  Not one has taken that decision to put me first.  Which leaves me with the question of what is love actually about?  Was I put on this earth to discover this and write stories about it?  I have some cracking books to write based on romance stories which were real. I have also read some cracking stories.  Ones which allow me to become educated about the differences between men and women.  Books like men are from mars.  I get it.  We are different.  The same could be said for every human being.

This time in Gran Canaria was timed perfectly to get away to heal my heart.  I thought this could be something that naturally may happen.  Alas, this is not what Im feeling.  All I see with my eyes around me and feel in my heart is a lack of love except for the rare case.  This makes me want to quit love.  My twins love me with all their beating hearts.  They would never consider trading me in for a new mum or go looking for a new mum would they?  They just wouldnt.  No matter how tough things get.  Likewise I would never consider stopping making an effort for them and forgiving their wrong doings. 
Why cant husbands and wives be the same?
