Inspire Me – Know When To Make A Stand

June 12, 2016


Amongst the groans, I am often the one that pipes up with something positive. The different angle in which to look at something that has gone wrong… the silver lining as they say.

Those that know me say that I only see the good in people, and when I can’t find it, I will look harder or make an excuse for them. That’s a good thing right?


Mostly it is in a way, but not always. It’s also important to know when to make a stand when things are not right and especially when you might be able to make a difference by doing so.


I am making my stand now

We have had the most disastrous week with something that should have been so simple. Our upstairs floor has sunk down following new windows being installed in our home. We have a gap. It’s scary. The company who has yet to finish the job doesn’t care about our safety.


I am writing an open letter to the company that will appear here very soon.


Please help me spread the word by sharing and commenting on my open letter to them, to support the fact that it is not right for companies like this to potentially put lives at risk.


I will leave you with this quote. It’s something that I hope will make you feel just as motivated and empowered as I have felt from reading it.

    Awful when companies think that shoddy work is acceptable – I hope they sort it for you! Perfect quote…sometimes we are drawn into a situation where we have no other choice but to stand up for ourselves. I wish you all the best! #candidcuddles

  3. That must be such a nightmare for you! I hope you get it sorted soon, some companies are awful. This is a great quote though! Keep being positive! #candidcuddles

  4. Quite right lovely! I can only imagine how annoyed you must be right now and I will be ready to support and share your letter once you publish it. Hopefully they will get their act together and sort the problem as a matter of urgency. They cannot be allowed to get away with shoddy workmanship! You are totally right to stand up for yourself, but the fact that you are a lovely and positive person just means that you will do it in a far more effective way. Go you xx

  5. Best of luck to you Annette! I’m glad you are taking a stand. Keep the pressure on & make these people fix their wrong. I’m proud of you for putting this out there. You know how much I love your inspire series, it’s a wonderful idea! Thanks so much for your wonderful, ongoing support of #candidcuddles x
