I’m OK with rest days, Are You?

20131009-143359.jpg

I honestly believe that sometimes you have to commit to a rest day. I have been fighting a dreadful cough for over a week, but I keep pushing myself to show up everyday.

I have my reasons for doing this but I realised last night.. While my body was aching, my head was thumping and my cough had defiantly escalated. That if I continued this way I was going to be no good to anyone when the time came and really mattered.

So today I went back to bed. I have slept in, drank honey tea and I will go back to bed once again!

And yano what?? I’m ok with that!

My body was sending me all the signs and messages to slow down.
So Stop and listen to your body, if it needs a break be ok with that and let it happen๐Ÿ™.

Stay wild and free โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ ๐Ÿถ

Embrace Today’s You ๐ŸŒž

20131007-191949.jpg

Pulled the inspiration for today’s blog from the one and only Alice in Wonderland, enjoy!๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฐ

Why long to be the person you were yesterday when you can embrace the brighter, bubblier and wiser soul you are today.

Because of yesterday’s lessons, challenges and adventures your spirit has blossomed just a little more, you are more you than yesterday!

So rather than wish for yesterday’s you, make today’s you a mixture of both. Embrace your growth, think about what made yesterday’s you so amazing, special, inspiring… And apply that to who you are today. Don’t loose the qualities you have grown to treasure about yourself ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—.

Stay wild and free my beautiful souls โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ ๐Ÿถ๐ŸŒ…

The Recipe for Creating your Dreams ๐Ÿ™โœจโœŒ

20130919-212229.jpg

This is from one of my all time favourite books, The Passion Test, by Janet Bray Attwood & Chris Attwood.

This is my Manta, In my opinion it’s the recipe for creating your dreams and to living a life without constant let downs. Take it onboard, apply it to your life and read the book ASAP!

INTENTION – consciously stating what you choose to create in your life is the first step to manifesting it.

ATTENTION – give attention to what you choose to create in your life, and it will begin to show up.

NO TENSION – when you are open to what is appearing in this moment, you allow gods will to move through you. When you hold tightly to your concepts of how things should be, you shut off the flow of life, which in turn prevents you from enjoying the fulfilment of living your destiny. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ”ฎ

Me time is precious ๐ŸŒŸโœจ

20130919-212453.jpg

Do you ever feel so wound up and wired that you could just explode..cry or hide in a corner?
Trust me I have. And yano what I decided?

That I had made no time in my busy life were I just did something for ME ๐Ÿ’“.
And why not? There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting some time to yourself. A time were you just focus on the most important thing in your life. You!

‘Me time’ is so precious to our overall health and wellbeing, it allows us to reconnect with who we are, it gives us that work/life balance we all talk about and most importantly it gives us time. Simply Time. So if you need it..your allowed to just do nothing but breathe and relax.
Now I’m not talking about making time to sit down and do up your ‘To Do’ list for the week, or to work out what bills are owing.
I’m talking about time spent doing what YOU LOVE!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™

So how do I spend me time?

So top of my list is:
๐ŸŒž To spend 30 mins a day outside, I take my dog Milo for a walk after work ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿพ. (Connecting with nature is super important for me)
๐ŸŒž Attend pilates class once a week, this gives me a guaranteed 1hour out of the house doing something solely for me. I make it a Friday so after a week of flat out work, I lie down, breathe, stretch, relax my mind and make everything quiet. I find its a great way to finish the week! ๐Ÿ™
๐ŸŒžRead 3 chapters of my current book, I have this on my list because I forget to read! But I love it! It takes your mind to another world, makes you think outside the box and gives you more to talk about in your day to day life. It inspires you! ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ
๐ŸŒžNo TV! This would have to be my favourite! I do this when my partner hangs with the fellas on a Thursday night (also when I read my books). I light some candles, play some music and sit and enjoy the quiet. A lot of the time I will meditate. I love meditation ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Thats just to give you an idea, it can seriously be anything. It’s just got to be something that benefits YOU though. No one else, ‘me time’ is all about nurturing and loving yourself.
I promise you, that once you get into habit of making time for yourself, you will feel amazing ๐Ÿ˜Š! Those little things that once made you bubble on the inside, Won’t even make you flinch!

Let me know how your going to spend your ‘me time’ or if you already make time for yourself, I’d love to know what you do!

Stay wild, free and beautiful,

You can do anything gorgeous…But not everything!

20130918-211209.jpg

We are all capable of doing anything we apply ourselves to fully. The key word here is fully๐Ÿ™.

We cannot expect our mind body and soul to provide us with the best outcome of a situation if we are applying our thoughts to 10 other things in that moment! We are therefor not present in that moment, not committed to the task..the feeling.

Our hearts cannot back something fully if we ourselves only give half our time to it.

I’m not saying we should only do one thing at a time, but you need to work your passions out.
Give yourself a top 5.

Whenever you come across a moment or a feeling that will benefit that top 5. Give yourself to it fully. Be present. And watch as things in your life grow and blossom around you. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’“

Stay free and beautiful โœŒ๐Ÿ โœจ

Manifest Positivity into Your Life..it’s Simple!

20130917-132536.jpg

Your thoughts become your reality. If everyday you told yourself ‘Nobody loves me’ …you would find yourself struggling to accept love, attention and care from friends, family and partners. Your vibe into those relationships would be clouded and negative. You would have no belief that you were entitled to those gifts from others.
And if you really think about it how much better does ‘I am loved’ sound?! Just by thinking this every time your head tried to drag you down slowly you would change your beliefs and manifest love, acceptance and happiness into your life. So try it! Turn those negative comments into positives! What do you have to loose… It’s only your thoughts, its so simple! You have a simple choice to think positive!

Namaste ๐Ÿ™

20130916-202836.jpg

Namaste.. Such a beautiful word. For another’s mind, body and soul to be at one with your own. To have love and respect for everyone be it animal or human. To have an understanding that we are all equal on this planet, that we all have a part to play, that we all provide something to the universe that another cannot. Therefor everyone (animal or human) we welcome into our lives has a role to play in making us who we are at the end of each day.
We must greet everyone with an open heart, love and acceptance. Feel yourself then bloom on the inside๐ŸŒป

Be free & beautiful xx
