“Only when we forget what we were taught do we start to have real knowledge”
Henry David Thoreau
I’ve been contemplating the concept of “being myself” a lot lately. And, whilst a simple question, it’s also SO layered and so complex.
I felt compelled to write this blog post after a friend asked me a question via Instagram about what to do when friends and family don’t honour you when you’re changing. I spoke about this on my stories, but I want to deep dive because, well, I love depth and layers.
The 7 Pillars of Creativity
I used to think that confusion was just an excuse - a distraction that we chose to adopt instead of doing the hard thing we knew we needed to do, deep down. It was something I’d heard from someone and it sounded like something I could believe. You know, it was easy to digest and I was so fixated on being that #bossbabe that I liked basically all the things that were hardcore and rooted in that #noexcuses life.
How To Start A Business
I’ve become obsessed with the creation formula. You know, what actually helps us create meaningful and fulfilling projects? I mean, obviously there is no approach to creativity that is linear and the same for everyone, however, there are commonalities of creativity that I’ve noticed in myself and others that I observe, that I’d like to decode for you.
A Mother And A Dreamer
The very first thing I want to tell you is this: I’m not an expert in profit and loss statements, business taxation, or profit margins, but what I do know a thing or two about is starting a business from scratch.
I started my first business when I was 16. It was a mobile personal training business that I ended up operating out of my custom-built garage of my house - complete with sound system, rubber flooring and occasionally a parked car right next to us. I had a full client list, and a jam-packed work schedule, and ran this for almost 7 years.
My Postpartum Body: Unleashed
Sister, you don't have to choose. You can have both - purposeful parenting AND a big ass dream. It's not an all or nothing equation. I'd love to share how I made motherhood and goal getting work side by side - it's possible!
Seeing Goals From A Fresh Perspective
This is me opening the metaphorical can of worms. POP!
Yep, I’m talking about the postpartum body. Now, I should mention that this is my story, and it’s up to you to have your own experience and to decide for yourself what feels good and what doesn’t. I’m not a guru in this area. I’m just a girl that had babies and has struggled to acclimate to the new me.
The Lies I've Told Myself
Ok. Who has set a goal, fully committed and gone for it, only to fall off the wagon within a matter of weeks (maybe months if you’re disciplined AF)? Be honest.
I have! And I’m certain most (if not all) of you have too. I mean, the fact that only 8% of people will make good on new year’s resolution speaks volumes, right?
7 Practices And Beliefs That Lead To More Joy.
I’ve had one of those weeks. The ones that feel murky, muddy, testing, emotional … and necessary. As Brene Brown says, we know that being in the arena means having our asses kicked … often (it’s a given, in fact). But for some reason, it always bloody surprises me when it happens! Put it down to the full moon if you like, but basically - the week has been messy AF.
Friends, I am NOT a joy expert BUT, I’ve become pretty damn good at recognising the practices, beliefs and tools in my own life that help me to cultivate more joy, and I want to share them.
