I've been running on this hallowed turf at the Hutt Rec for 30 years. 30 years!!! #runnerslife #runnershigh #trackisback #thegrassisntalwaysgreener

Is my life a little boring or just drama free? Some days I can't make up my mind #rags #thegrassisntalwaysgreener

The extensions are out.
The eyelashes are off.
The filters are cut and I don't have flowers or leaves naturally stuck to my head... Let's be honest for a second: we all follow someone on Social Media and think, "Wow! They're living the life!" or "They always look so beautiful!" ...I do the same! I follow lots of people who I look up to but what I forget sometimes is that no one (➡NO ONE⬅) posts a bad picture.
The pictures on the left are from this past weekend at the Toronto Pro Show. Make up done and filter game is strong. In reality my feet and lower back were killing me and I was so exhausted from traveling, walking around in heels and major lack of sleep. But that wouldn't make the cut on social media or in person so the smile gets pasted on and those dark circles under my eyes get faded out with golden sun rays and perfectly adjusted angles.
Pictures on the right are reality. These are the ones no one likes to post. Little to no make up or the 2 day old make up that I continue to re-layer, hair thrown up on top of my head, light provided by the dust-covered lamp in the bedroom vs natural light, the mess from my luggage that I still haven't cleaned up, and sweats... ALWAYS wearing sweats! Not to mention everything else going on in life that isn't shared online! There is not one person who shares every aspect of their life online, including myself. We filter our lives for others to look a different way either physically or in life situations.

What doesn't make it to social media is that I have an insanely huge support system behind me helping me all the way. Adam is constantly helping me with business, client messages, helping with my training, watching the kids, cleaning the house, organizing, doing finances etc. Without him there is no business. Both mine and Adam's family are watching the kids every time we have posing practice or a show weekend. Without these people, I wouldn't be able to do what I do. I love you all so much and owe you everything!

Social Media has it's pros and cons but remember it doesn't always speak the truth. We become who we want to be online in the eyes of others but you don't see everything; you see the filtered version.

So many people do this with relationships and jobs. They want something so bad and then don't know what they had till it's gone. You can live life and be happy or you can always wish and want something else and never be..... #liveinthemoment #tomorrowisntpromised #thegrassisntalwaysgreener

When you're one with nature 🙊 #exploringthailand #thegrassisntalwaysgreener #sickedit

We pine for what we don't have, but fail to nourish what we already possess🌲🏞#thegrassisntalwaysgreener #countyourblessings

Too busy enjoying my own grass to notice if someone else's is greener

My grass is organic, sweet, nutritious and just what I need. #thegrassisntalwaysgreener

I think #johnmayer said it best. A girl will give 💯to a guy. But once that guy turns his back for whatever reason she will force herself to like another guy. She may come back to that one guy but never will give 💯again. Ever. It's hard to open up again once burned. Guys usually realize what they lost after turning their backs on the girl. And it's too late. The damage is done. 🌸

I feel like donuts are undervalued sometimes, like we forget how happy they make us ♥️ #dontstepoutonyourdonutsforkalesmoothies #thegrassisntalwaysgreener

Card # 2- Give Your Relationship a Chance: Sometimes we sit around and think of how the grass is greener on the other side. Or how if the other person would just change this or that, then all would be better.
This card is telling you to give your partnership a chance.
If you feel like your partner needs to change something, maybe you get to take a look at yourself and see if you can change that same thing, first. Sometimes, what we dislike about the other person is really just a reflection of ourselves. I ask you, try diving into yourself.
If your partner does something that bothers you, first-take a deep breath! Maybe instead of getting upset with your partner, just simply observe and be curious. Why did they say that, why did they act that way, why did they respond or react that way. Breathe-Observe-Be Curious-And maybe take another deep breath! 😉 Then, as lovingly as possible, ask them Why. And let them know you are coming from a place of love and curiosity. ---And remember, if you are not fully committed to the relationship, how do you expect it to succeed? Dive in and give it your all. Only then does it have the chance to flourish.

Envy can foster distress, lead to resentment, and set us on the road to depression. I know too many people who get caught up in what others have or have achieved vs work at enhancing and appreciate the blessings in their own lives. Here are 3 ways to find happiness in your own yard:
............................................. 1. Stop comparing. Nothing good can come off it. There will always be those with greener lawns and those with more yellow lawns. Every gardner has different strengths, weakness, and life circumstances. If you want results, work on your own lawn every day and watch for day to day progress in your own yard. .............................................
2. Set SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timed). This forces you to define what is important to you and makes you accountable to improving your own lawn. Having written goals translates into a plan. And as we know, a plan is the key to success. .............................................
3. Be grateful you even have a lawn. Most people in the world don't have a pot to piss in, much less a plot of land. Keep a gratitude journal and write 3 things you are thankful for every night. You will be surprised at how this changes your outlook and your level of happiness and satisfaction with your own grass. .

Yesterday I calorie counted alongside doing an sp day. I literally can't be arsed to count calories as its so time consuming and especially as an sp day is basically bang on calorie wise. I shall never stray from you @slimmingworld, I love you too much 😂 #caloriecountingissuchafaff #thegrassisntalwaysgreener #slimmingworld #sw #eesp #spday #proteinandspeed #iloveslimmingworld #slimmingworlderforlife

It may look like we have a glamorous life but it's not easy. Ryan is building us a beautiful house but he is gone 7 days a week until 10:00 at night EVERY NIGHT. He doesn't get to see his son, and I don't get to see him. We've taken zero vacation together for the last 2 years. We are absolutely focused on building a better life for our future so we've put family time on hold. It can be very lonely, it is also very tough raising olli on my own but i know it will be worth it. .
Ryan you're an incredibly hard working man. You've sacrificed a lot to build this life for us and I can't wait to enjoy it together. #thecountdownison 🏡🍂
