Create a Better You With These 21-day Challenges


You may remember that this resurgence in blogging, and the  viewing of Social Media in a different way began at the start of this year (2017).

The lady responsible for helping me make the shift is M J Robertson, the founder of the alltolove.com blog and the author of The Fearless Life Guide (see the link on the shopping page)

Molly had invited me to take part in a 30-day challenge, the object of which was to record a video each day over 30 days and then post it onto Facebook.

Vlogging From Devon 11

A Day In The Life of DAve 11



Filmed over Saturday, Sunday and Monday and maybe a little of Tuesday in Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and That London.  NB The sound quality towards the end is a little ropey.  Apologies for that!

A Lesson Learned

Today I have learned a valuable lesson and I want to pass it on to you.  That lesson is - your skin is not going to shrivel and die if someone throws a bit of criticism in your direction.

The Donkey And The Well Adapted by Dave Baxter 10th August 2017

This little story was sent to me a few weeks ago and I thought that it would be useful to include it in the blog. 


There is a moral to the story and a lot of people would benefit if they thought like the donkey.   So if you are all sitting comfortably,  I will begin…..

The Donkey And The Well

One day, a donkey fell into a well.

The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what do do.

Finally he reached a decision.

Are You Being Attacked By Memes?


Let me begin this post by asking a question – how many of you have said something like “I can’t lose weight because I’m big boned!”

If you hold your hand up and say “I have” then the chances are you have been attacked by memes.



A meme is something that Richard Brodie describes as

“a thought, belief or attitude in your mind that can spread to and from other people’s minds”

Shared post

Hi good morning and welcome to the Under Blue Skies blog.  Today I felt that I just needed to share a post from a blog that I follow.  This blog is written by a friend of mine and it is called Zigzagging Toward Zen by Frances Sullivan.

Being happy despite…

DorianGrayHey one and all, what’s new and exciting?
I’m in a bit of good mood today and anxious to tell y’all about it. Because you’ve supported me with kind words over these last many months when I blathered on to you almost daily about my struggles, it makes sense that I’d want to tell you some good stuff. And you’re likely relieved, too. I know I am.
So some of this mood was inspired by a Facebook post I happened upon reflecting on how challenging life is and that each day is one fraught with just too much sorrow to be anything but ‘just another day’. My heart went out to the author who I first wanted to hug, and lastly wanted to encourage to seek another thought-path. I couldn’t find the words, though. (I know, not something a writer should admit.) Still, I kept wrestling with it. Until this morning.
Sitting at my spot on the couch, editing away while listening to Gandalf the White’s wise instructions to Aragon (I am SO in love with Viggo Mortensen) in the background, a feeling of profound peace enveloped me. Of course, I welcomed it because I was once more reminded how much I love writing. It is my Zen, no zigzagging involved at all. Also, I am happy for every fragment of my current circumstance. Yes, I’m envisioning, even demanding change, but at the same time I realize the choices I’ve made that brought me here were the best I could make at the time. Also affirmed within the feeling was that my decision to feel good, be grateful about my life no matter what, is working. In fact, the transformation is remarkable, but only I can testify to it. You would not likely notice it. Think of it like “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde in reverse. You might not ever see a change, but I sure as shit do! And it’s glorious.
So, what has any of that to do with the doldrums experienced by the Facebooker? Well, this is what. We do have choices, but, we can only feel what we can feel. Our energy allows us to move into emotions that elevate or lower, but must work in collaboration. If we are not capable, we are not in that moment able to even believe in the possibility of something better, and so will stay wherever we are until we break through and vibrate differently. Make sense?
Because I intend to feel blessed and prosperous when I’ve not even money for groceries means I open a gateway, a portal as it were, to potential. I suppose it hearkens back to the blog about pretending or acting. My feelings are the realization of its successful application. Despite my “issues” I am happy and in this moment, at ease with my situation, fully assured all will be well. How? I haven’t a clue, but I believe it.
Lastly, it takes time to move. I’ve been doing this work wholeheartedly for over two years now, focussed on it every single day, attempting to hear differently, change a long developed inner dialogue, and confront every shadow with forgiveness. Every day I chase love. And, guess what, I’m seeing more and more of it every moment.
My wish today is for a fragment of light to illuminate whatever darkness you face, if only to give you a scintilla of hope. Hold on to that piece of light no matter what else happens around you. Imagine it in your sleeping state and when awake. See it through your tears. It is there and it will not fail you. Believe.
Until tomorrow…
I sincerely hope that you enjoyed reading Frances's post and hope that if you did you will follow her blog as well.
Best wishes
DAve xx
