Hola, I’m Samantha

Born in the North of England but raised in the South of Spain. Now you’ll find me in a new place every 2–3 months, living out of Airbnbs, exploring coffee shops, and taking photos of the sunshine and blue skies. For work, I focus most of my time on finance and resource management, for a globally distributed marketing agency. Outside of that, I find joy in writing, cooking, and travelling. Writing allows me to find my focus, cooking allows me to switch off, and travelling enables me to grow with new cultures, different people. Need I say more? 💛

SELF-LOVE

How many times have you told yourself you can’t do something?

How many times have you told yourself you can’t do something? I used to do this far too often! I would l always find an excuse to doubt myself. Recently I’ve started telling myself daily self-belief affirmations, resulting in only thinking positive about myself. It’s really helping!

If you want to feel good about yourself and believe in yourself then you also, need to commit to some well-deserved self-belief.

Been struggling with this recently? Here are some reminders:

#1. You’re incredible! Whoever you want to be and wherever you want to be, you can get there, because you’re incredible. …


LIFESTYLE

Developing a new frame of mind will give you the power to become whoever you want to be.

Setting your intentions is a powerful way of determining your growth and finding your inner strength. Your intentions can be anything that you want, giving you the power to become whoever you want to be.

Setting a daily intention is more than setting yourself a goal; you’ve got to live, breathe, sleep and eat everything that you desire to empower your mind. A fundamental part of setting and creating your daily intentions is to know that yours will look different from everyone else’s.

Find some alone time and ask yourself what’s most important to you.

If you want to foster…


WRITING

Here’s my review of the Ship 30 For 30 cohort.

“Ship 30 for 30 is a 5-week cohort-based course teaching you the fundamentals of writing on the internet. But unlike other writing courses, you will put your learnings into practice by writing and publishing online every day for 30 days”

I joined the August 2021 cohort and as my first writing course, I was very excited to get into it straight away.

First things first, let’s get one thing straight — I’m not a freelance writer, I write simply because it’s something I enjoy.

I enjoy reading, writing and learning.

When starting Ship30for30 I was so curious as to what this course would expect of me and what I was going to get out of it.

Fast forward to the end… I loved it.


LIFESTYLE

As much as it may look like we’re on holiday 24/7 — we’re not.

In 2007, the term ‘digital nomad’ became a hot topic when Tim Ferriss wrote about his 4-Hour Work Week. That, plus a pandemic has resulted in an ever-growing community of nomads. However, many people wonder if it’s at all possible to live this lifestyle. The result? inaccurate assumptions of what it’s all really about.

Here are the most common stereotypes working digital nomads have to put up with:

#1. Being a nomad is only for young people: Social media probably doesn’t help this stereotype…assumptions aside — the older generation can certainly fit this lifestyle. More life experience, more knowledge, and…

Here’s why you’d be better off with a set routine

After hearing that Forge is looking for writers to share some ‘wisdom that makes your life just a little bit better’ got me thinking — what works for me?

A Morning Routine.

When you have no routine or structure to your day can actually make you feel more mentally drained than keeping to any routine. You can easily watch your goals slip away and habits become non-existent.

Since that realisation many years ago, I’ve crafted a personal and positive morning routine.

However, you still may be wondering why having a daily routine is so important, let me tell you why…

WRITING TIPS

You can’t force creativity but you can give it a little push.

Writer’s block happens to the best of us and I’ve certainly wrestled with this on many occasions, and each time I overcome writer’s block I find myself with a set of new ways to pick up the momentum to get writing again.

You can’t force creativity but you can give it a little push.

Here are 7 ways to help get those creative juices flowing again:

#1. Create A Writing Routine

Discipline yourself to write more regularly. If you only write when you feel like it, then, of course, you’ll get stuck so create a routine.

#2. Stop Writing for Your Readers

Some days you should write about something totally off-topic, even if it doesn’t suit your blog. …


Daily Routine

How you start your morning does matter, but not in the way that many self-help guides are telling us.

How you start your morning does matter, but not in the way that many self-help guides are telling us. Now it’s time for you to control your mornings and dominate your life-work balance.

Here are 3 myths and misconceptions that I’ve experienced through building my own morning routine:

1. You’ve never had a morning routine.

That’s incorrect — you already have one… it just may not be how you want it. Try to change an existing habit and build a powerful routine around that to help jump start your day.

2. You need to get up very early.

Not true — often people believe that in order to achieve more and get things done you…


WRITING ROUTINE

It’s time to give writing the attention and priority it deserves.

Photo by Cathryn Lavery on Unsplash

The idea around creating a writing routine is to let your mind and body know that it’s time to write. It’s not time to scroll through Twitter or check your unread messages and emails — it’s the time to sit down and write and only write.

  • I can’t seem to find the time.
  • My schedule is so busy.
  • I have to do XYZ before I can start writing

Sounds familiar? This is often what’s said by people who want to develop a writing routine but struggle to start. …
