To those of you feeling broken, I feel the need to let you know you are not broken. You are on a self discovery journey, even though you feel lost at the moment, embrace this journey because you are discovering and connecting to who you are. (more…)
The circle of judgement. Perhaps you can relate. You sit around with your girlfriends all chatting, gossiping, and judging others for any reason under the sun. Then you head home and all you can do for the rest of the day is be so critical of everything you do. The next morning you see some of your girlfriends at the shops talking to each other, instantly you start thinking that they are talking about you, that they don’t like you, and you are wondering what you have done wrong. This circle goes round and round and round. (more…)
Tonight as I was at the shops I found myself humming along to the music playing in the supermarket. The song was Gotye – Somebody I used to know. You can feel in the song the heartbreak, the pain, and you can just imagine how this relationship ended. It has been such a long time since I have heard this song, and the lyrics, well they really stuck with me. Now you’re just somebody that I used to know. These kept going around in my head, and I suppose it was a like a little Ah-ah moment I had tonight, this is how I feel about myself. I look at who I was a few years, how afraid of life I was, how I allowed anxiety and fear to run my day, how miserable I felt, how little joy life gave me. (more…)
Inspiration is all around us, everyday. Have you noticed how many people in your day inspire you? I am referring to genuine everyday people, who are working on their selves, improving their lives, and releasing their selves of what no longer serves them. It is not the perfect pictures on social media, it is raw, honest, authentic people. The ones who say it like it is, the ones that share their lives which is a mixture of the highs and the lows. It is keeping this life real, in a world where we are encouraged to be anything but real. (more…)
Tonight I am feeling a little reflective about my journey and how far I have come. Tonight I attended a workshop, and 12 months ago I attended a workshop held by the same lovely coach at the same location (they were on different topics). On the drive over it got me thinking about how much I have personally achieved over the last 12 months, about how much personal growth I have been through, how many new connections I have made, and how I feel I have really tapped into my passion. (more…)
Do you see yourself as worthy?
Worthy to be able to follow your dreams, worthy to treat yourself with compassion and kindness, worthy to wrap yourself up in a big blanket of self-care. You are so incredibly worthy, feeling this, and knowing this, can help you create the boundaries in your life you need to nurture yourself. (more…)
We are constantly evolving, changing and growing. Every day we are learning more about ourselves, and sometimes it brings us closer to the person we know we are, and other times it is step away from our essence.
Every single day, you are creating your life, you are showing the world who you are. (more…)
When was the last time you celebrated yourself and all you have achieved?
Setting goals, chasing your dreams, connecting with how you want to feel every day of your life and creating the life you envision for yourself, is an amazing journey. (more…)
You know what, I am pretty excited about life at the moment! I do not have any big exciting news to share, and that for me makes it even more special. I find it exciting that the everyday can make me excited.
I remember a time when this was not the case, I remember days where I could not find anything to be happy about, where it was just darkness and anger. Where I hated myself and the world around me. It was a tough time, and one I had to battle with. I knew it was not a space I was meant to be in, however it seemed that whatever action I took made it darker. I did not belong there, yet I was there. I feel like I stopped living for years, I just existed, I did what I was expected of me because I had to function. I had to survive, quitting was never an option. (more…)
Creating space in your life, for you.
There are those times that arise in our lives when we feel so disconnected from ourselves, where we find ourselves looking at the mirror and asking who am I? When you feel like all you are doing is running around doing everything everyone else in your life wants you to do, yet nothing of what you want to do. When all you want to do is pour yourself a glass of wine and sit on your favourite chair and breathe, that is exactly what you need to do. (more…)
You are so incredibly worthy of the life you want to create.
The one where you feel free, because you have released yourself from the past.
The one where you feel compassionate, because you have forgiven.
The one where you feel love, because you have loved.
The one where you feel joy, because you know the dark times are there to strengthen you.
The one where you feel happy, because you also know sadness. (more…)
It is Sunday night, and the start of a new week is upon us. I find this a great time to connect with myself and ask what do I need for the week ahead?
You can make this a general theme of the week, perhaps like a word you can use to anchor to. You can ask yourself how do you want to feel this week? Do you want to feel calm, present, or perhaps active? Finding a word or a feeling to connect into for the week is a way to guide yourself without the pressure of a to do list, or a set goal. (more…)
Are you showing yourself to the world, or are you in a stage of protection?
Are you the kind of person who feels like you are guarded so you can protect yourself from the rest of the world? You know if your guard is up, no one can hurt you, because you have kept them at a safe distance from you. (more…)
This week has left me feeling a little flat.
When it comes to my posts that I share with you, I am never going to pretend I am happy, all smiles and rainbows everyday, when the reality of life is just not like that, my life is not like that. I am not going to present an illusion of having my life all together, because just like you I am on a journey of discovering myself. I truly believe life is full of ups, downs and roundabouts, and as we learn how we handle these, I think that is what makes it such a gorgeous journey at times, even if we can feel icky while navigating through it all. (more…)
Your worth is not defined by other people’s opinions of you.
Oh how I wish this was an easy lesson to learn, and one that once we learnt it we never had to re-learn it. However, that is not the case for me, it is something that I go through stages with. (more…)
Every step you take forward, no matter how small a step, it is a step forward. Even when you feel like you are standing still.
When you have decided to make changes in your life, you are fully motivated and ready to just hit the ground running. You tell yourself it will take time; you know all good things do take time. But secretly you are thinking, I am going to smash this. Have you noticed what happens next? You hit a brick wall. Stop completely. Take a break. Tell yourself you are no good at anything. Give up for a really long time. Find something new to change. (more…)
At times we get stuck, we can not see any other options before us, we can feel like there is no way forward, we lose the connection to who we are we and that little spark just seems to be out.
Perhaps it is time in your life for a de-clutter? Nope not a mental one, a physical one. Have you had a look around your home, is there a room that you really can not walk into because all the stuff that does not have home has been thrown in there? That is why the door is closed on that room, so you do not have to think about it. (more…)
Tonight I would like to ask for your help, with this blog and community we are building.
I am so excited by this space, and I am loving being able to begin sharing some blog posts with you, however behind the scenes I have so many ideas twirling around. This is where you come in, if you can please head to my contact me page, or if you are comfortable to comment below, please share with me what tools would help you the most? (more…)
It takes courage to look at your life and realise you are no longer aligned with a part of it, or perhaps all of it.
When you are living your life and it is aligned with you, you can feel it in your heart and you know it. In this space it appears effortless to keep creating your life, to set big goals and to be achieving these. (more…)
I would love to know when was the last time you just had fun. Old fashioned, unplanned, spontaneous fun.
It can seem like we have to plan everything, we have these long to-do lists, we work as well, then there are friends and family to catch up with, we have to fit in exercise, and just all our general every day items. In amongst all these, do you create a space and environment to let your hair down, unwind and just let it all be a bit of unplanned fun? (more…)
Your body, it is sending you signals all the time. Do you notice when you are tired and drained, or do you just continue to push through your never-ending to do list? Do you notice that headache, or just pop a painkiller and have another coffee hoping it will go away soon? Do you notice when your skin is blotchy, dry and patchy? (more…)
When did you give up on yourself? Do you find yourself in a space, where you feel sad and empty all rolled in one, where you have given up spending time and energy on things that excite you. Where you feel you are spending all your time chasing after others, and well those boundaries are just non existent. (more…)
In my Day Two post yesterday, I was talking about intuition and asking whether you feel it? You know that gut feeling you have that you can just not explain away? Your heart whispering in your ear?
Do you connect with this part of you?
Are you nurturing this relationship? (more…)
Have you heard people talk about their gut? (I am not talking about gut health – oh yes probiotics are good for us, that is for another day though.) I am referring to that gut instinct, to that vibe you just get in the pit of your stomach, however sometimes you can not explain, and at times it just does not make sense.
Different people have different names for this gut feeling, some call it their intuition, their instinct or their heart. Whatever it is you call this little vibe, how is your relationship with it? (more…)
