I'm a down-to-earth inspirational blogger who questions everything. I am currently exploring a mindfulness path and meditate regularly. The present moment is my path.
Here at 'Kelly Martin Speaks' you will find a collection of deeply thought-provoking articles and questions coming from my life experiences, where finding inner peace and a sense of freedom is important to me.
Initially this blog was set up to give me a place to voice my shyness, my lack of confidence and my insecurities as I explored the world through different spiritual paths. It was a safe haven and allowed words of inspiration to flow through me, often teaching me as I went along. Now 'Kelly Martin Speaks' is a growing blog that encourages embracing 'what is', being mindful and making life-enhancing healthy choices.
A few facts about me:
I talk to bees, flies and spiders - basically all of nature's creatures (exceptions: cockroaches, sharks and scorpions - I am working on these!).
I have had 30+ years of experiencing painful anxiety and periods of depression. I am now learning to experience these differently through mindfulness.
My father died when I was 26 which hit me hard and I had a 10 year grieving process where I hid in a shell and did not come out until I was healed.
I dream vividly, often receiving intuitive guidance through my dreams.
I share a home with my best friend who is in his 70's. He is my wise sage who also p****s me off often - but I love him.
I have currently taken a sabbatical from the working/rat-race to explore my writing skills and talents.
I have a door fetish. I love to photograph beautiful doors.
I love down-to-earth real human beings. I am not a lover of loudness but I'm embracing that through mindfulness also.
I am quirky by nature and tend to spend a lot of time in solitude, but I also love great company. I enjoy a weekly meeting with a local mindfulness group and I am exploring a more Buddhist path. I wouldn't say I'm a Buddhist, just that it makes more sense to me in dealing with life and all its ups and downs. After a long period of embracing the whole law of attraction and create your reality bandwagon, I got off that ride and stepped into the great unknown. I realised that all my desires caused suffering, when unfulfilled, and those that were fulfilled didn't give me a lasting sense of peace. I realised there must be another way and so mindfulness is my way. If you like my blog, I love comments and engaging with readers. If I can offer you anything, it would be relief from any pressures you may be placing on your shoulders and showing you another way.
