My weekly round up + Lifes lessons & blessings

I have it on my heart to apologise this week. I tried to start this post a million other ways but kept getting pulled back to just being raw and honest with you and admitting this space, my space, our space has been a little quiet of late and I am re committing to turning that around. 
You see, no matter where my current life journey takes me, with new business ventures, company launches, beautiful friends, crazy work loads – this space is where it all began for me. I came, almost nightly, and could share a journey, piece by piece, experience by experience, moment by moment, as I found my self through self love and wellness and mind/body spirit betterment. I will never ever forget that. 
Life can take us on crazy, wild, delicious rides and I really think I am in a pivotal moment of my life where I am learning to release and just let it throw me where I need to me – growing and learning and expanding. One thing that will always remain important to me though is this space. 
This week as I’ve rushed from place to place or from person to person, I have stopped to honour all that is happening right now in my world and soak up every tiny little moment. It was in these moments I have been open to some little lessons and blessings that I wanted to share with you with love… 
There is no point in getting stressed, being rude or letting overwhelm control you. Breathe through any moments like this and watch the feelings that do nothing for you fade away. 
Life is always, always better with a hot peppermint tea.
Release release release. Release on everything. Let go on any and all feelings that don’t honour or serve your current situation or life. 
Sometimes, all you really need is a night off, with your favourite person, some yummy food, a glass of red & a good book. 
Letting someone you know at least once a day how amazing they really are, how much they mean to you and how much you love them, is more fulfilling than any number in a bank account. 
Life is too damn short to not eat the damn chocolate bar (organic of course). 
I Sending you love and light and oodles of good intentions as you embark on your day or task at hand, and would love to know your own little life lessons that came up this week as you were rushing through life. 

Stop playing small – turn your life up a notch (or ten)

Let’s all just breathe for a minute, step in to our place of love and security, leave our ego’s at the door and talk about…..your greatness.
Yes gorgeous, YOUR greatness. 
There has been this huge energy shift at the moment I am feeling that I want to grow and expand with momentum. Fast, beautiful momentum. The shift I am talking about is this growing energy of belief.
That it doesn’t matter if you had a broken heart and a harder life you can do it.
That it doesn’t matter if you are a little late to work out your gift and live your purposeyou can do it.
That it doesn’t matter if you’re not entirely sure how, but you for sure know your why you can do it.
It excites me, enthrals me, inspires me and keeps my own fire in my belly growing strong. It’s time to stop playing small. To stop being a spectator of life and jump in with your whole body screaming ‘HEY THIS IS ME, IM HERE & I WANT TO LIVE’ – and here is how I would love to gently guide you to do it…
Recognise your unique gifts & grow them
If you haven’t sat down yet and written with no inhibition, for 10 minutes what you really really rock at – I need you to do that now. You have gifts babe. REAL, amazing, unique gifts. I truly believe not uncovering those gifts, declaring those gifts and sharing those gifts is not only selfish – it is a slap to the universes face!! We were all born with a soul, we’re all different and we are all here to live our most extraordinary life – you can’t do that not uncovering your gifts, growing them and making them part of your purpose. Find them. Declare them. Live them. 
Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle
Don’t ever, ever, ever, everrrrr let anyone tell you you’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough or anything enough to be whoever you want to be or do whatever you want to do. Because you can. You SO can and don’t you dare EVER let anyone tell you otherwise. It will be found, those that do are just trying to keep you in their comfort zone, are jealous of the positive changes you’re making and don’t understand your journey – none of which is reasonable enough for you to allow them to dull any of your sparkle. Shine as bright as can be as YOU. Nothing is as sexy as living unapolegtically as yourself and being authentic – so shine bright gorgeous. 
Start helping others 
The whole purpose of our lives, whilst all of us are living and breathing on this planet – is to help others . Truly, it is. When you develop your gifts and align more strongly with your purpose, you are by way of organic default, serving and helping others, and I can assure you, if you aren’t fully aware of your strengths yet, reach out and help others and those gifts and strengths will shine brighter than a diamond. Whenever you get stuck, whenever you’re feeling down, lost, anxious or unsure – reach out, and help someone else. It could be a loving text to say you’re thinking of them, a little gift to make them feel loved, a coffee date where you pay. You can even step it up a little more and offer your time – do some soup kitchen work at a homeless kitchen, volunteer at an eldery care home. Once you start to give back, to help, to serve – life makes sense. You gain the perspective most chase for a lifetime & fulfilment flows easier. 
Be a leader not a follower 
YOU were a born leader. We all were. You don’t need to think because you’re not loud enough, bubbly enough, strong enough, whatever it is you tell yourself enough – that you are better following than leading. ALL of you have the leadership quality in you. If you are someone that follows instead of living by example, leading authentically, then I truly believe you are playing small, letting external circumstances and friends and society dictate how you feel. Leaders know they control their own life and go and chase it. They choose better. They actively engage with life more. They know that their response and interpretation to a situation is what gives them their outcome and don’t let external circumstances dictate success or mood. BE THAT LEADER of your own life. 
You see gorgeous, you don’t need to play small, you have a right to live your truth, to pursue your passions, to earn an income from that and to live a life of your dreams. It’s do-able. It’s SO do-able, you just need to choose to stop playing small, start setting some goals and STOP letting yourself be a spectator of life. 
THIS IS YOUR LIFE. So start playing the leading role
