OVERCOMING FEAR & OVERWHELM.
For the full story, check out “FEAR” in my highlights on my profile.
If you’re scared of going after what you want, if you’re letting fear get in the way of the dreams you desire, if you’re letting fear of failing stop you dead in your tracks... This ones for you gorgeous.
It’s time to stop fearing, and tap into your flow. It’s time to start seeking the soul-filling life you only dream of now. It’s time to stop the sabotage. It’s time to stop the procrastination. It’s time to stop feeling silly about the little voice in your head that craves something more fulfilling. It’s time to START listening to your inner wisdom and go for it.
It’s time to stop worrying HOW you’ll do it, and start getting curious as to WHY you want to do it. It’s time to search deep in your pockets for that inner warrior in you and take a big bold step outside the doorstep of your comfort zone. It’s time to start REALLY LIVING, not just surviving paycheck to paycheck, relationship to relationship or fad diet to the next diet. It’s your time to soar. Let’s go!

Treating myself yesterday to this dreamy poké bowl at @BoneDaddies with dreamy company @phoebegreenacre 💖💖💖

SKINNY VS HEALTHY
.
Contrary to popular belief, what you weigh is not an indication of health. In both pictures, my BMI is in the “healthy” range but there’s 15 kilograms difference and a WORLD of difference in terms of overall health - physically, mentally and psychologically. Just because someone looks skinny, doesn’t mean they’re healthy and just because someone looks overweight doesn’t mean they’re unhealthy either.
.

On the left - I was partying past 3am 4/5 nights a week, smoking up to a pack of cigarettes a day, doing NO exercise at all and surviving on red bull and coffee to avoid eating. I weighed 57 kilos.
.

On the right - I rarely drink, and when I do it’s a good quality glass of wine with people I genuinely love and I’m in bed by 11. I don’t spend my money on cigarettes and red bull, I invest it in organic food. I don’t invest my time in nights out with strangers, I spend it working on a business that changes lives, with a partner who brings me joy, having brunch with good girlfriends, cooking nourishing meals, taking fitness classes that motivate me and reading books that fill me with knowledge, passion and inspiration. And guess what, I’m 72 kilos (roughly - haven’t weighed myself this week and I don’t obsess over the number any more).
.

I gained kilos, but I also gained my health back. I gained friendships, self respect, love, confidence, energy, healthy hair and skin, motivation and inspiration, found my purpose and importantly I RECLAIMED HAPPINESS. .

So if you’re someone who’s obsessed with weighing yourself, judging yourself critically and basing your health on a simple number, dress size or diet then please STOP. Please be kind and please remember that we all have changing, unique bodies. I may have got down to my goal weight many times, but I promise you it didn’t make me any happier, more confident or content with my body. .

Instead of focusing on what you want to look like on the outside, have a think about “why” you want to be healthy

LOVING OURSELVES 💖
.

When you were growing up, did you ever hear someone use the phrase “She loves herself too much” or “Don’t toot your own horn!” to negatively describe someone? Isn’t it strange that it’s considered bad or wrong to feel proud of yourself and express it vocally - yet I myself have felt that way almost all of my life! .

Isn’t it ironic that we have no issue telling people how busy or stressed we are, yet we would feel embarrassed or arrogant publicly sharing how pretty we felt today or how amazingly well our business is going?! Or when someone compliments us, we feel the immediate urge to rebut with something we did wrong / not so well, as if agreeing that we are amazing was outrageous! It’s almost like we are more comfortable hiding or fitting in, than we are being proud of who we are or the things we love about ourselves. .

I really liked this photo when I took it but I didn’t put it up because I thought it was a “shameless selfie”. I thought that it would be superficial - because there’s a lot more to me than just a pretty made up face and my content is about the things that go beyond skin deep. .

But actually, I love this picture of me and I’m proud of the way I look - because for so long I wasn’t proud of what was on the outside or the inside. And it’s ok to feel sexy, it’s ok to want to feel attractive and it’s ok to put your hand up and say I AM BEAUTIFUL. I know that those who know me would tell you that I’m beautiful on the inside and it’s ok for me to write that too - because there’s nothing bad about OWNING YOUR LIGHT and STEPPING INTO YOUR GREATNESS.

YOUR SUNDAY REMINDER
.
The best is yet to come. You could be in a completely different place, physically, spiritually or emotionally in just 6 months.
.
Wherever you are, know that good things are coming - they might even trump the vision you had for yourself. Give it time. ❤️

NEW WEEK, WHATS IT GONNA BE?!
.
It’s Monday, it’s a new week and it’s a new chance to start new habits, new conversations and take new steps towards what you want.
.
You can feel drained from the weekend and sad it’s Monday, or you can choose to start your week with an INTENTION.
.
Your intention might be as simple as having a happy attitude, being more self expressed or focused at work, it could be to make the healthiest choices for you or it could be to make conscious time for self care and down time.
.
Whatever comes up this week, hold your intention in your mind and revert back to it when you’re stressed or overwhelmed. Remember YOU get to choose how you perceive what’s happening to you and YOU get to choose what type of week you’ll have. #choosehappiness

DO YOU DIM TO FIT IN?
Do you make yourself small by not going after your dreams, not saying what you feel called to express or playing it safe to avoid being “different”? I did, for way too long. And sometimes I catch myself doing it even now.
.
We are all born to shine brightly - when you were a kid you would have dreamt up of all sorts of whacky careers or future aspirations for yourself, but at some point you decided it wasn’t “realistic” or “ridiculous”. But why?
.
Why is it normal to fit in? Fitting in is our attempt at belonging, but when we look closely - fitting in is VERY distinct from belonging. Fitting in requires dimming your light or changing to fit with the crowd.
.
So if you’re drinking alcohol or partying regularly because it’s “normal” and the way to socially fit in, ask yourself - is this really serving me? Or if you’re in a soul-less job you hate, because it’s the acceptable “normal” way to earn a living, I want you to ask yourself if it’s your truth. If today was your last day, would you be on that diet or texting that guy who never texts you first?
Choose to rise up and turn your light ON girl. You might be too bright for some who can’t handle you, but that’s ok. You never know, you might give someone else permission to step into your light and shine theirs too.

After decades of focusing on disorders, psychopathologies, behavioral problems, illnesses..., psychology has gradually started to think about what's good for us. It's not just about finding a treatment to cure illness, it's also about finding answers to what makes us find our bliss. In #positive psychology problems are not ignored, but focuses on everything that gives us #satisfaction. Positive psychology could be defined as the scientific exploration of what makes our life worth living, without forgetting personal problems. Positive #psychology balances our strengths and communicates a more objective self-image in a balanced way. This is necessary because some strengths are not necessarily good and are also not beneficial in excess, such as #positivity. To be positive can make us believe that we are #invulnerable. We can thereby assume that we will #achieve everything. This can lead us to take too many risks and tackle more things at once than we can #realistically do. On the other hand, if we are negative, we will hardly be able to enjoy the #good that life brings.

If you're more interested in this topic, I invite you to watch the TED talk "The new era of positive psychology" from Martin Seligman. I would put the link in my story, but I don't have 10k 😅

Commit to success. Forward motion can only happen when we throw away all of our excuses and take responsibility for our lives. •
