I SHOULD be........
.
The word “SHOULD” Is debilitating! Remove it from your vocabulary!!
.
I’ve said this a lot to my 1:2:1’s this week.
.
Instead...Do what you LOVE...what you want! I WANT to (not should)....eat more healthily; exercise more; get that promotion; drink less; spend more time with loved ones; start that business; be financially free; be mentally free; etc!
.
Change the way you TALK TO YOURSELF!
.
Will you give this a go?

📷: Last week in Florence

🌟 ACTION 🌟 Buongiorno!! As per my stories, I’m still here in Florence 🇮🇹 heading home today. I’ve managed to reply to ALL your DM’s and emails. One thing that keeps cropping up is that to eradicate #anxiety you have to learn that MIND EXERCISES are crucial for your #happiness and overall well-being. I have the practical tools and expertise but this isn’t enough...#action is required on your behalf or else you will remain stuck!
.
HAPPINESS IS AN INSIDE JOB!
.
Happy Friday!

EASTER SUNDAY- PLEASE DO YOUR BIT TO ERASE THE STIGMA
.
I don’t often write specifically about child abuse but today I’ve chosen to and all I ask from each and everyone of you is to read on...
.
CHILD ABUSE
Child Abuse destroys lives. The suffering and damage cuts deep & the journey of healing is a long painful one. I know this first hand; Ive lost decades of my life to child abuse.
.
EASTER SUNDAY
I recognise that many people will be celebrating Easter today, eating eggs and spending time with their families. This religious weekend, the deeper meaning involves suffering and it’s for this reason I have chosen to speak out. You see for as long as we all avoid the topic of child abuse, the undercurrent of suffering remains locked and silent.
.
SOCIETY
We as a society are partly responsible for this silence. We judge people wrongly who are suffering, we only see problematic people; junkies; fat slobs; homeless; alcoholics and we turn our back. We don’t stop to empathise. Out of sight, out of mind. Somebody else’s problem.
Victims just like me feel societies rejection; we feel the embarrassment of knowing how we are being judged as a failure. So we hide our abuse and unhealthy coping mechanisms. The many charities know this problem hence it’s about encouraging people to “talk”. But how can we talk openly when we know that the misplaced shame we feel is exacerbated by societies opinion of us? We don’t want to be judged as a failure for not coping.
.
And so we go inwards...we use unhealthy coping mechanisms and continue to suffer. We either die, thrive or start to abuse others in similar ways we were.
.
GOING FORWARD
So today I’m smashing open the lid of the silence. If you are reading this and you too have suffered; please know you are not alone. Keep going, keep digging deep and push through. Hold tight onto FAITH, have HOPE, eradicate the hate and replace your heart with LOVE and I can assure you PEACE of mind awaits... .
And to the rest of society whose lives are not affected please take it from me, we, us child abuse victims just want our voices to be heard...
.
Thank you for reading to the end.

START LOVING THE *REAL* YOU!
.
We live in an online world, a world where we are easily distracted by social media. I witness and hear copious amounts of people feeding their #selfesteem by the number of ‘likes’ and comments from social media posts- seeking, albeit perhaps subconsciously, approval from others. BUT this short lived happiness will NEVER build genuine, permanent self-esteem.
.
WHY NOT?
Because self esteem- the real builder of it, comes from the silence and solitude of being in your own company and standing in front of a mirror and really liking/loving what you see.
.
HOW TO DO THIS
It’s simple, EXERCISE YOUR MIND DAILY. Your self criticisms (we all have them) shouldn’t be destructive, they should be constructive AND coupled with an #actionplan that is your guide to becoming a better you!
.
WHOAAaa NEDDY! 🐴
BUT, this requires daily mind exercises and most people don’t do it. Physical exercise ALWAYS seems to take priority and here my friends is where I truly believe we, as a society are going wrong.
.
START TODAY
Get your mind fit, strong and healthy! Exercise your thoughts today, tomorrow, the day after till such time #mindfitness is part of your daily routine. In the words of John Adams (U.S. President (1735-1826)...
.
“Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.”
.
And I will add...”you must exercise them if you wish to reach your true potential!”
.
Food for thought....

🌟FREE HAPPINESS TIPS 🌟
.
⬇️ START HERE ⬇️
A great LIFE isn’t just a great relationship, family or job - it’s ALL aspects of your Life. It includes taking risks; facing your fears and realising your dreams! There is a misconception that being rich in the bank will make you happy, hence the popularity of the National Lottery!! BUT financial success alone won’t create long lasting happiness. Nor will living with a great partner/children yet you spend all your life hating your job!
.
TRUE HAPPINESS
It’s living a WHOLE LIFE with purpose! As Viktor Frankl (concentration camp survivor) observed- people need a goal that is unique for them to survive. This transferable focus will provide you with motivation, grit and a will to succeed no matter what is thrown your way!! You don’t have to be a concentration camp survivor to possess this will, it’s in you now! You just need to learn how to access it!
.
BIGGEST MISTAKE
I see is that people set their goals in January and then that’s it!! Living and I mean TRULY #livinglifetothefull is about you having LIFE goals, not just Summer body ones!
.
⬇️ SUMMARY ⬇️
1. Get your LIFE goals down on paper- ALL areas! Work; Home; Love; Relationships; Family; Adventure; Bucket List!
2. Then frequently update them!
3. Take time out to explore what you want.
4. Challenge yourself.
5. Embrace your fears.
6. Then go kick a@@!!!
.
If you find value in this post, please share or tag a friend or loved one. The more people it reaches the happier we can all be! Or just hit ♥️🤷🏻‍♀️😂

▪️SEX IS POWERFUL
Now we all know how powerful sex is, it’s been sung about since the word dot AND is a potent drug that confuses even the best of minds!
.
▪️BUT CLAIR!
“Oh but Clair, the sex is great” is one of the top reasons I hear when it comes to people not wanting to end a difficult relationship. Its power has been studied for years! I’ve studied it for years!
.
▪️TOP TEN TIPS
Here I share my top tips for enjoying a healthy, fulfilled relationship (irrespective of your past!) :-
.
1. It’s one of life’s free pleasures!
2. It releases #endorphins
3. It’s a sure fine way to make you #feelgood
4. It creates intimacy, builds trust, love and loyalty with your partner on a level like no other!
5. It feeds YOUR #soul
6. Don’t confuse great sex with a great relationship!
7. Keep exploring with your trusted partner, your relationship will deepen.
8. NEVER do anything that feels uncomfortable to you.
9. Don’t leave it to your partner to always initiate, take the lead from time to time! Or always?! Whatever rocks your boat! 😉
10. Sex CAN be congruently enjoyed by people like me who have encountered #childabuse #abuse or a difficult past. It is SO possible!
.
▪️GEORGIE BOY!
In the words of the late George Michael...
.
“Sex is natural, sex is good not everybody does it but everybody should.” 🙌🏼
