On Sunday 18th June I had the absolute pleasure of gracing the stage with my fellow mastermind girls to share our message at the annual Inspired Women’s Showcase. I don’t know if you can tell by my beaming face but it was an absolute joy and I loved every single moment.
I’m so excited to dive a bit deeper into the day, what I got from this experience and share a very exciting announcement at the end as well. (more…)
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.
Have you ever been in the situation where you are working towards a big goal, and have lots on your plate? You might even think that you are too busy to take care of yourself.
So your self-care starts to drop, because that voice in your head says “you don’t have time to do yoga today” and so you listen to it. You skip yoga, end up messing and fluffing around for a couple of hours, feeling guilty that you didn’t go to yoga, feel guilty that you have SO much work to do and you haven’t touched anything.
Finally in a couple of hours you are stressed because you didn’t relax with yoga, stressed because you didn’t get all the work you wanted to done and feeling pretty yuk. In today’s post I am going to be sharing with you how you can work on getting unbusy, how keeping your self-care is imperative.
I used to get really frustrated at myself for not doing the actions I kept saying that I wanted to occur. Scratch that, I still can get frustrated at myself for saying I want one thing and acting a different way.
It frustrates me to no end, and it would result in a berating cycle of feeling not good enough. If I wanted to be coaching people, why wasn’t I doing it? To me it seemed simple, if I wanted something to occur, why couldn’t I take the necessary steps to meet my desires?
My mind would spin round and round with all of these stories, and noise. And trust me it could and can get pretty noisy up there.
I thought I was a failure for declaring a goal one day, and not taking any action on it a week later.
I firmly believe the way to get what you want, to have more of what you want in your life is to be happier now.
I have to be happier, even when I so hate where I live, I don’t have the perfect job, am not making my dream income and totally do not have the good life yet? I hear ya, but trust me, even research backs me up.
