Hi, It me πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Im back on the timeline of still photos, cuz yah gal took a break to take lots of videos complaining about lifes small inconviniences - which btw I am still going to do πŸ€— But just thought id share some life updates and share a thing or six.
But first, me πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸŽ‰ I am really feeling myself at the moment. Hence the picture, which thinking back now I totally should have taken more cuz ur gal looks πŸ’₯πŸ”₯ But actually, these past couple of weeks/months have ignited a fire of confidence, gumption, a little more than healthy self-praise and a whole lot of colour and happiness. Ive almost completed university - thank. thee. lord. πŸ™πŸΌ and as much as I lurrrrvvvv to learn πŸ“• I AM READY FOR A SALARY πŸ’°πŸ‘™πŸ‘‘ which leads me on to my next piece of news.... your gal got the internship at EY πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸΌ So big gal panties are a happening thing, and my anticipated work wardrobe is slowly coming together and leaving me all the feels of a young Carrie Bradshaw πŸ’‹πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ‘› LIFE. IS. FAB. And sooo many other exciting things are happening behind the scenes which I can’t wait to slowly and mysteriously share with you as summer and sun draw near 🌞

But to finish I woud like to draw your attention to the β€˜behind the scenes’ of my ever so fabulous life that I live. And must also apologise that I may not share enough of the ugly. Now that being said - there are areas in which, for the protection of myself and others I will never share and will only be drawn out through my closest and honest friendships. But in retrospect there is still plenty more I can share in order to reflect a well-rounded, honest and true picture of who I am and what I do. Because even though I succeed and work and thrive, and post photos in gr8 outfits πŸ•ΊπŸ½ there are also times where I dont get out of bed, wear socks and slides (which happens waaayy to often) and throw a temper tantrum because Justin Beiber proposed to Hailey and have been team Jelena since day dot. Somedays I wake up feeling small and useless, others I spend telling everyone that one day I will be Prime Minister. And both of those days are SO necessary. Own them both, and use them to create something better for now. 🌸 K bye

Let's have a korero πŸ™‹πŸ½ .

In response to this weeks political decisions - which I actually don't want to discuss at all - cause I believe those conversations are best left for kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face). It's interesting to hear the connections between LABOUR weekend and Ms Ardern's party of red. .
.
However, upon further research - I found there is no connection what so ever. Lol. And, instead found some really cool Aotearoa history that I assume many people (including myself) have no understanding or knowledge of. I am a huge believer in sharing our history, celebrating those who have gone before us and understanding the true meaning behind our actions today. So if your a history gal like me.. keep reading... cause this is cool β˜ƒοΈ .

Labour day was originally a day put aside to celebrate the efforts of a man called Samuel Parnell. This guy fought for the right to reduce his labour to an eight-hour day - which originally fluctuated between 12-15 hours. Not only was NZ (yet again) a forefront nation in introducing this right in 1890, many workers and homes were positively influenced by the mahi of Parnell who was committed to see change. .
.
So throughout this weekend, take time to think of Mr Parnell and the work he did for us as a nation. It's because of him we have this time to spend with friends and family. So Ka Pai Parnell πŸ’ƒπŸΌ

Loving people isn't complicated. Loving all people is. It's not about my friends who cherish me, my family who stand by me or those strangers who encourage me. It's the co-workers who exclude me, leaders who reject me and friends who abandon then leave me. I am a stickler for the rules, so as a community (not just speaking to all the chrizzos πŸ™πŸΌ) when our most fundamental mission is to love all people - I am struck and aggravated by the capacity and challenge it is to love all people. Love isn't easy, it takes work and time and effort and resources (πŸ’Έ) and discipline and conscious decisions to continually choose to love someone. And THEN to express that to someone who I feel isn't 'deserving'.... - let's just say sometimes I just want to grab a 🍷 and say "adios my non-amigo" πŸ˜ŽπŸ’ƒπŸΌ But I cant... -working on it πŸ’ͺ🏽 because who I am to withhold love and acceptance when I have been shown the most undeserving and and blameless love known to man. So that's my mission this week team - let's love beyond what is deserved, expected and received in return. Because none of us are pretty enough to get away with being selfish little πŸ’©'s

Isn't it sad how we have scared men into thinking a compliment means commitment. I dream of the day where men are able to express themselves and share their thoughts on the beauty of women - cuz I know you think it #psychologymajor - This does not mean to say I subjectify women to their physical attractiveness alone - by all means, tell me I am intelligent, tell me I am strong. But why is it we have shut the door on letting our men, or enabled them to share their thoughts because we are afraid of what they will say - or it'll mean they are 'hitting on us'. My mum tells me I am smart, my friends tell me I am pretty.... but it would be so cool to have a man tell me, I dress cool, I write well and I have better quads than you... not because I don't already know... but because sometimes it's just nice to hear it from the unsuspecting mouth of a man who is willing to speak ✌🏽*sidenote - gals this goes for you too- we could also up our game on compliments for the men... cuz equality πŸ‘ŠπŸ½

Sick of this entitled culture that hinders the ability to celebrate those you love. I myself have fallen down the hole of jealously and sense of unjust blessing which I so adamantly believe I deserve more. Who cares if you worked just as hard for that job, who cares if you've waited longer for a boyfriend, who flippn cares if you think your better or more talented than her. Who the heck are we to draw in on ourselves, when we should be throwing a party and showering praise to the one who just excelled! Stop being so bloody selfish (talking to myself) and either sit down and shut up in your self pity or stand up and throw your hands in the air cause your friend is boss and amazing and legit πŸ™ŒπŸ½ πŸ’ƒπŸΌ πŸŽ‰

This year I have found myself entering the 'grace zone' - an area where challenge and trial are met with vision and perseverance. And capacity extends beyond capability, until you can no longer complete the incomprehensible alone. It is by faith, it is by community and it is by vision that I will continue to outwork in my 'grace zone'. It is because of the burden in my heart, and the need in my world, that I will continue to push and seek the unspoken and undiscovered. By embracing all that I am and all I can be, I am expectant to grow, thrive and love more, beyond capacity and beyond expectation. So.. watch this space πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘―πŸ˜Ž - πŸ“· @bethanykorff
