Bawled my eyes out pretty much all of yesterday watching this beautiful bride who’s been in my life since we were 10 years old, marry her soulmate. Lucy... when I saw you stood there in your dress, I saw all our memories flash by year by year, how you’ve grown, and my gosh, I am so proud of the woman you’ve become. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Terry and thank you Martin for making our babe so very happy. It was a privilege to be a part of your special day. ❤️💍 #MrandMrsTerry

FOLLOW THE BREADCRUMBS...👣 .
.
A little nugget that came up this weekend. Don’t stress yourself out because you’re putting pressure on “finding your purpose” or finding that ONE thing that lights you up. If you don’t know where to start, just follow the breadcrumbs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💫 Notice who you follow on here and why?
💫 Notice what conversations pique your interest, or get you fired up.
💫 Notice what you search for on Google or YouTube.
💫 Notice what you feel drawn to but aren’t sure why.
💫 Notice the books you pick up off the shelves or the movies you watch. Why?
💫 Notice what makes you curious.
💫 Notice what you’ve always wanted to try but blamed not doing it on there never being enough time or money.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just follow the breadcrumbs. You don’t have to see ahead of where it leads to, or visualise 10 years down the line. Practice childlike curiosity, don’t put pressure on yourself to turn your breadcrumbs into a whole loaf of bread - a career or an expertise - just allow yourself to see where things naturally lead. 👣😘 .

Goddesses.... THANK YOU from the deepest part of my soul ❤️ I’m on the train back to London after just wrapping up our 12th and final Shropshire Weekend retreat, and I’m sooo full of love I think I could actually burst. I’m welling up just writing this! .
.
It honestly still feels so surreal for me every time I get to meet you guys and work with you in person. It’s honestly the best gift ever for me and brings tears to my eyes. I don’t think I will ever get over people telling me that my book(s) or the Academy has changed their life for the better. It’s total madness, never really sinks in, and never something I even imagined could happen but literally the most rewarding thing ever in the world. Hugging you in person is my favourite too and hearing all your stories! 🤗 Can’t believe in a week I’ll be flying to the Maldives to do it all again with goddesses on the other side of the world! ✈️ .
.
P.S. Don’t worry, there will be more UK retreats, I’m just on the hunt for a different venue to give y’all an upgrade after 3 years at the same place. Time to change it up! Also it will likely be a long weekend to spend longer together 😜 Anyway this is a massive sloppy gratitude post so if you’re reading this - I love you and I appreciate you! ❤️ you goddesses make me so happy. ❤️🙏🏼 .

I believe through and through that the Universe rewards people who make bold moves. Or - Fortune favours the brave.
.

That’s why I have jumped before I felt ready countless times, and the net has appeared. Launched things before they were absolutely perfect. Done things just to prove to myself I can face the fear. Taken action even when I was quite comfortable and relatively content where I was. And guess what? The net appears and you don’t die. You learn the way - ON the way.
.

Ask:

Is this expansive?
Is this forward movement?
And... is this a bold move?
.

Remember, there are far less talented and less qualified people out here doing exactly what you want to be doing - they just have more courage and are out there making bold moves, facing their fears and learning and growing on the way.
.
Fortune favours the brave. What bold moves are you making towards your dreams before the year is out? 💫🦁 I wanna hear ‘em please ❤️ .
.
P.S a sternum tattoo is another type of bold move, lol 😉

I share this today because it is soooo easy to look at people who are further ahead than you in business and think they had some big break or some golden opportunity just fell out of the sky and landed in their lap 🤣 - but the truth is, that person has probably working their sweet little tush off for years on end to make things grow from nada! 🤷🏽‍♀️ Remember dreams don’t work unless YOU do! Put in the time, be resourceful, keep taking steps towards your goals and you can absolutely create whatever you dream of. 💫

I remember the moment this penny dropped for me, and I went aaaaall in with self love and reeeeeeally getting to know all aspects of myself so I could nurture that relationship, instead of waiting for someone else to come along and do it for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You know what makes me so happy to see? Even though we’re spending so much time on our screens, and magazines are going OUT... books are still in! 📚💪🏼🤓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a 2x published author (with book 3 brewing inside me) I’ve gotta say - I am definitely someone who just RELISHES an actual BOOK book, I will not let that go! It weighs my suitcases down so much when I travel, but it’s worth it, the feeling of turning the pages, the smell of a new book, the feel of the cover, the folding of the pages, the adding to a book shelf, the feel of the author’s energy in my hands as I read... mmmm! There’s nothing quite like it. 🤓 When we moved into this apartment the book shelf in the wall really sold it to us 🤣 we were both like 😍😍😍 “those book cases though” 🤤🤤🤤
.
I used to read audiobooks but I realised I was always doing other things at the same time as reading and was hardly retaining any information, and not enjoying the experience so much. It was kind of like digesting information on the go (feels like digesting food on the go, I guess.) Not as pleasurable! I can do that great with podcasts as it’s more conversational... but for some reason with books - I need to sit and read and only do that. It’s my time.❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What about you, are you a ‘book’ book, kindle or audiobook kinda person? What have you read so far this year that you’ve loved? I’ve read some fab books this year but I think my top book has to go to The Artist’s Way. That book has literally changed my whole creative identity this year (nbd!!!) 😱 Total game changer! ❤️ By the way totally thinking of starting a book club in my community next year! 🤓📚 .
.
Share with me your fave book from 2018 so far and what style of reading you prefer? 💫🙏🏼 (tagged some of my favourite authors 🤓)

A million adventures could never be as exhilarating as the adventure of spending my life with you ❤️

Instagram: My Ride or Die 🔥😎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reality: Babe before we ride or die, I have questions.
Can I navigate?
Does this helmet look okay on my head?
Can you move up a bit?
Did you pack snacks?
Can we get a selfie?
Can I do an Instagram story?
Can we stop for coffee?
I need a wee.
What podcast are you listening to? 🤓💁🏽‍♀️

While you are dreaming up the next big thing
Setting next year’s goals
And visualising your future
Do not forget
To stop,
Breathe
And take it all in.
Do not forget
To take a moment to remember
The days you used to visualise and pray and dream
For the life you have now. 💫

I started my biz (which was then just a name) on 12/12/12 (not intentionally!) I didn’t really know what I was doing or have a grand vision at all - I just wanted so badly to share a message that was on my heart, with as many people that would listen to me. I could never have predicted the amazing journey it would take me on but I’m so grateful beyond words for where it continues to guide me. (Does that sound like you, too?)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I opened applications for my first ever mastermind, which starts in November. 💫
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be mentoring a group of 10-20 of you who want to grow heart centred businesses online, to create more freedom, impact, and income. I’m so beyond excited to meet the ones who get to join me on this 9 month journey. ❤️

We’ll be diving into everything from messaging to marketing, from strategy to social media, from branding your website to building your list, from growing your tribe to growing your team. From money mindset to conscious collaborations, from book deals to events, programs, and having the systems to back it all up. You will be taking a LOT of action in my tribe 😂 I don’t work with people who procrastinate for years on their dreams, I’m a doer and I want people who are ready to MAKE MOVES. 🙌🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coaches, trainers, yoga teachers, healers, writers, PTs, freelancers, designers, creatives, anyone with a mission on their heart who is being called to take things to the next level of growth in their business. I’m looking for you. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I had a conversation last week with someone about relationships. She asked, “Do you guys ever fight?” .
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I said... nope never 😇 bahhaha not really... I was like um yah of course! We challenge each other a lot, and we are both very passionate people with strong personalities (and both Type A) 😂 But I love this about us. We have a lot of passion, and a lot of fire 🔥 (if it was the other way I would probably be bored 🤷🏽‍♀️) So yes...sometimes this turns into arguments - the difference though is how we manage them, the gravitas of what we actually argue about, and how fast we are able to find a way through it, so we can make up and learn from it as a couple, and grow closer. ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to believe the perfect relationship was one where you never argue and everything is just super ‘easy’. But actually now I tend to think - if that’s the case and everything’s just always super easy - then at least one of you isn’t speaking enough of your truth or expressing how you really feel. Or at least one of you isn’t being challenged in the relationship, so you aren’t growing anywhere. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we first started dating 18 months ago we were completely different human beings. It’s through our challenges that we’ve been able to consistently grow together and our love grows deeper and more passionate rather than fades. ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my stories when I was single was that I would never find someone who could keep up with me (an ex once told me this). So grateful for a partner who doesn’t just keep up - but constantly pushes and challenges me beyond what I think I’m capable of too 🙏🏼 .

Forever thanks to the divine crazy ass set up orchestrated by @jessicareidclairvoyant and the cosmos back in ‘16 ✨🔥☄️
