So I am going to do something that kind of scares me but something that I love viewing from other people. Isn’t that funny, it’s what Brene Brown says about, the authenticity paradox: vulnerability is the last thing I want you to see in me, and the first thing I look for in you.”
I believe there is so much information out there in regards to living and leading a life that you freaking love, but the way I learn is through hearing people’s own personal stories.
Most of these stories are written at the end of someone’s journey and time along with hindsight can make it sound very different. So I wanted to take one of my big juicy goals and take you through exactly how I am planning on reaching it. So a new monthly post that I will be diving into will be my Manifest My Desires: A Real + Honest Behind the Scene’s.
It’s funny how quick we are to give away control over our lives isn’t it?
I am all for conspiring with the Universe to create a life that I love, but it’s funny the moment something doesn’t go our way the slightest shit hits the fan.
It’s easy to say ‘if only it all went my way then I could remain positive, focus on what I am grateful for and just generally not turn into a sassy know-it-all’.
I am wrapping up sessions with clients this week and getting ready to take some time off my business over the Festive Season and New Year. If you want to find me, I will be yoga-ing non-stop, out on the ocean soaking up the sun (if Melbourne gets around to turning it on for us) and surrounding myself with great food and even better company.
It of course is only fitting with this being my last post of the year to do a wrap up of my 2016, because ahh life, we like it in a neat little bow at times, especially when a year has been tumultuous it helps to feel at peace and send the year off in style.
I am writing this not knowing where I am going – perhaps it will reveal itself as I write more, or this could be a super fun journey – let’s dive into it together.
I have spoken about completing a 4 day mediation intensive training a bit here and there, but today I really want to dive deeper into this because it has been such a beautiful incredible experience and I want to share this.
I first penned this post just after completing my meditation course and now am coming back to this 2 months prior (almost to the day) and have been meditating daily for 20 minutes or 40 minutes each day! Crazy for me to even fathom, now I am not saying this will be for your, but by sharing my experience I hope to help you with your own meditation practice if that looks even more hardcore than mine, or by simply taken a few mindful breaths before you get out of bed.
I spoke about falling out of love with my business post my Manifest My Desires workshop the other week here. In person events, which I love have a natural tendency of a low post, due to such a high of the creation and getting to the event, not to mention all the adrenaline of rocking it.
Now I know I am definitely not the first person to fall out of love with their online business and I know that I will not be the last too. Which is why I believe it is so important to firstly talk about it and secondly talk you through what I did to help me fall back in love with it.
So let me paint the picture, I just generally couldn’t be bothered post event, a big couple of months putting on this workshop mixed with huge life lessons left me feeling totally zapped! My head was swirling with all these thoughts and that is always a tell tale sign I need to slow down!
