The Happy Zone! What's that all about then? Well if you've read my intro about being a happy owl, you'll realise I'm happy being me! That's not always been the case and it took a lot of soul searching, personal development, reading, researching and all kinds of things to get me to where I am today, a lot of which I can't even remember (my memory has always sucked!). However thanks to the power of the pc, a lot of those learning's have been kept by myself on my hard-drive and I've decided to share some of it with you.

There is no rhyme or reason to what you'll find in this section, no order at all, like me it's random, that's how I've changed over the years, by being open to lots of things, I've grown and I don't mean on the scales.

Have a snoop around, read what you will, take from it what you wish, the one thing that you are guaranteed in here is positivity with a dash of realism!

I know I will revisit all the info in this section myself often as it reminds me of how I got happy!

Let's start with a question....

So you want to be happy?


Are you sure?

What do I mean are you sure? What a daft question eh?

Not really, some people are content to be miserable, they get some sort of fulfilment from it. If we continue to stay in a situation that brings us unhappiness, it is usually because we are getting something from that situation! Does that seem odd to you, I hope so because if it does it means you’re ready to move on, to change – TO GET HAPPY!

Okay so are you now thinking to yourself, what makes Beverley different, who is she to tell me how to get happy?

The answer I’m no one special, I have no professional qualifications other than life experience and a continual search for answers and explanations as to why I am the way I am. I’ve read numerous self-help and diet books and learnt so much, I’ve also forgotten and disagreed with even more and the only thing I know for sure is that no two people are the same; we are all awesome and unique.

I do however believe that you create your world through the perspectives that you choose to hold.

After years of being unhappy with my shape and striving for the perfect figure, now whatever my size, I can look naked in a mirror and say “I love you” – can you? I’m happy more often than I’m unhappy – are you?

I want to use this website to share some of the knowledge I’ve gathered over the years whilst dieting and searching to understand what makes me tick.

I hope that what you get from here will help bring you to the same happy place that I am - well maybe not exactly the same place – or it’ll get a little crowded!

If you’ve been looking for happiness and satisfaction and not finding it inside yourself, and you’ve looked outside and there’s no happiness and satisfaction to be found there either. You need to create a love for yourself to bring you that happiness and satisfaction.

Remember Life Starts NOW!
