Classic Victoria Sponge Cake in honour of the Queen’s Plaitnum Jubilee

Everything you love British….. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Victoria Sponge Cake filled with a layer of jam and buttercream โ™กโ™ก

A Victoria Sponge is a British classic cake decorated with a rich buttercream icing and strawberries. I love to bake all things fluffy and yummy, and I decided to bake this cake to celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne –  using simple ingredients.

I have included a recipe for you to try out, so head over to Atlas Team for this teatime treat! You can replace cream/butter with delicious non-dairy alternatives to regular dairy. I made buttercream filling instead of whipped cream as it has a long shelf life.

For the buttercream filling:
85g butter, softened
175g icing sugar, sifted
Few drops vanilla extract
2 tbsp strawberry jam
Fresh strawberries (optional)
Icing sugar to dust

Enjoy this delicious classic cake!

With love

ADHD Nervous System – Strength Based Model โ™ฅ๏ธ

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. One in seven of the world’s population suffer from neurological conditions with over 600 types, including; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) should be renamed ‘Inconsistent Attention & Internal Hyperactivity’ (IAIH).

Why? ‘Because it is not a decifit of attention, but rather a problem with regulating oneโ€™s attention span to desired tasks.’ – Healthline.com

ADHD: Below is a list of some of the enhanced qualities and abilities that exceed those naturally found in non-neurotypical people and some famous celebrities including; Michael Jordan, Jamie Oilver, Will.i.am, Emma Watson, Bill Gates, Paris Hilton & Albert Einstein.

Creating Pathways to Better Communication ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’œ

Could you please explain it to me in more simple terms?

Be none the wiser – Video by Simon Sinek

Reading is the key to understanding our world. I am not here to change the system, I’m here to change our approaches. Change the people, and you change the system. We are in this together. The future is up to us.

โ€œThe world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.โ€

Charles Kettering 

Lisa Ower mentions in her article here  ‘No matter what the change is, big or small, it must be able to link to your culture, overall purpose and vision of the company. Even if management views the change as beneficial, if your employees canโ€™t link the change to the existing culture or organizational purpose, it will be difficult for them to carry out these transformations.’

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • How do I think?
  • How are humans are wired?
  • How to change my mindset?
  • What does success look like to me?
  • How does the human brain react?
  • What’s in it for me?
  • Ways to understand my behaviour?

For me change is good change, change is hard. It is part of the human experience. I found change difficult and I felt insecure about myself, but it was worth it.

I made the toughest decision to close my struggling business and lost my home nine years ago. My family fell apart and as a mum I struggled through the hard times, putting myself in a difficult situation. It’s taken a lot of mental clarity to help me find my focus and direction, it forced me to go to the next level. I went through a very emotional journey, me against the world. Sometimes you need to do you and take a step back to live a peaceful and authentic life. Show up and love them hard, only then will you realise what’s important.

โ€œIn order to change the world, you have to get your head together first.โ€

Jimi Hendrix 

Eventually, realised I needed to take responsibility for my life and my happiness. Happiness is a choice. I had to put myself first before supporting my children’s mental health. Happy mum, happy child. It improved my confidence and well-being. My life and  motherhood  has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows but never boring. Helping my children was a great way to help myself.

What’s your culture, purpose and vision?

I’ve learned through my journey that doing too much for your kids is not an effective parenting strategy.

โ€œVery often a change of self is needed more than a change.”

A. C. Benson

Facts Over Fiction โค๏ธ

Stephen King quoted “The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them.

Listen to people, get them to think about their own experience, and emphasize your common humanity. Understanding their own needs and the needs of others is fundamental as we are connected not only by happiness in our lives, but in our struggles, suffering and fears.

Only Kindness Can Give Wings to Human Understanding โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—

The moment we understand, everything becomes much clearer pushing our frustration and impatients aside and allowing our self-awareness, compassion and empathy to change our own emotions and to see the perspective of another human being.

Finding Meaning in the Middle of a Covid-19 Pandemic ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’–

We could all benefit from focusing more on our own mental health

Mental Health Support has never been so important but we all need to make it a priority. Everyone has a different ideal and if we are to move forward we need to reconnect with our ‘why’ and have the same kind of energy and dedication to support each other to live our best lives.
