I’ve spent a lot of my life in the dark... as an introvert I have always preferred to be behind the scenes rather than on the stage. But this year for me is about taking big leaps into fearful territory, being bold, and stepping out of the shadows. Time to GO FOR IT! .
One month of using my SmartLife Push Journal 🎉 Now onto my second month! I love these journals - they track everything! The journal makes you think about your goals and really makes you dig deep - which is fantastic and helps to keep me on track and reach my goals 👊 I'm so thankful that I came across these journals, they have helped me organize my life and hit some major goals! Thanks @chalenejohnson 👍💕 "You're always a work in progress. Flexibility. Personality. Motivation. There's always room to improve." - Chalene Johnson
Happy Friday 💚💚💚❇️!!! It is so important to know who you are... I experienced something that someone said about me that was deeply hurtful but once it came out, I realized that is not who I am and that is a reflection of their state of mind... hurt people hurt people... when you know who you are no amount of words that don’t line up with what you and GOD says about you will break you down! #Iamagod#iamaqueen#iamheadandnottail#selflove#nogreaterlove
This week was the definition of me running around like a chicken with its head cut off, but my lifts still pretty great, it’s Friday & I get to see @gunzandbuns tonight 🙌🏻❤️
Bench stuff: 140x1x2 & 130x1x4
Squat stuff: 210 triples & front squats @ 115x3x8
Deadlift stuff: paused sumo @ 190x3x8 (aka cardio) & conventional (forever struggling)
Your mind is just another tool in your body, it’s something you can use and stop using. Sadness, anxiety, happiness, bliss, love. These are things we are all going to feel and it’s okay to feel them. Be your mind’s watcher, know that, not everything it tells you it’s the actual truth. The ego (mind) hates when you free it, it loves to be on duty all the time, thinking about the past, wondering about the future. It loves it so much that it can be so hard to shut it at times, but you can #freeyourmind and start living in the NOW, which is what really matters. The past already happened, all suffering comes from non-acceptance of what is. Watch the thought come, and go. Accept that it’s there, and it’s okay, don’t judge it, don’t hold on to it, let it happen. Embrace your pvyne and all your emotions, it’s part of you, part of life. It’s life living through you, and the only way to end your suffering is surrender, things won’t always happen how your mind imagines they should, they happen how they happened. Accept. Embrace. There’s always the NOW, trust the universe and it’s amazing ways to teach you growth.

This year I have truly learnt how precious your health is. You literally only have one body to live in for the rest of your life. When I push myself too far with workouts and the daily hustle, my body tells me enough is enough and I’m unable to exercise for weeks because I’m completely energy depleted. My goal this year is to find a happy balance between the daily hustle and rest. Because without self love and restoration, we compromise our health. Health is number one baby!
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase
I surrender who I've been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger
than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well I would have known
What I've been living for all along💚

Today is a very down day but somehow the weather seems to be keeping me motivated ☀️
I just feel like i am controlled by my illness and everything is revolved around it. I am trying my hardest to keep it under control with keeping myself busy and maintaining my imagine...meaning hair washed, nails, sunbeds, nice outfits and make up on etc. Which is so hard and today is a difficult one. I have therapy in a few hours and dreading it because the pattern it...1) therapy 2) stay positive (having a melt down inside) 3) saturday work (energy sucked out) 4) sunday break down...and i need to change this routine before it kills me.
Once college is finished and therapy ive changed it up and im going to sunbed after and cook a meal for me and my mum so im not alone. Maybe thatll change the curse 💜
Have a happy fridayyyy enjoy the weather whilst its here 🌞
