Day 253

What happens when things fall in place? When you have surrounded yourself with awesome, motivating people and push through the tiredness and 'just do it' attitude (even if you feel like you are dragging your feet) - life has a way of falling into place. So today I have just elevated with my Nutrimetics business - my team is growing and I love helping other people aim (and achieve) the things they are setting out for. AND my dog training business is falling into place - with over 10 enquiries just this week!! 

I may be tired and currently having a well-earned beer (and sleep in tomorrow!)! But am so pumped that all the hard work is paying off!! I was reading something just the other day about the 'fake (or faith) it till you make it' philosophy. I use to have this feeling that even my bestest poker face wouldn't be able to fool people! But I think sometimes what you think and what others perceive are two completely different things.

This was proved to me yesterday in Aldi - I was on a mission to get shopping completed before I had to start dog training, so I was slowly going aisle by aisle (as with everyone else in town - as I swear being closed on Good Friday = Apocolypse). When an elderly gentleman stopped me and said "you have very kind and beautiful eyes" I said thank you and smiled and he replied "You are very beautiful when you seem a bit too serious when you were shopping!!" It was really sweet, not a sleazy line at all. And a reminder to not take life too seriously - even when shopping for an apocolypse.

What it reminded me of though is we are who we are. Sounds vague doesn't it? But what I really mean is that people can see through your facade to see who you are. So be who you are and you will be beautiful and shine through. Also, never forget to compliment those around you who are beautiful too, you never know what it will mean to them.

Day 252

Today started on a better foot, I spent 10minutes when I woke up to meditate then I spent an hour at the gym with my phone OFF. I not only felt more like myself, but I was tons more productive. I think we all have those "down" days, where we can't quite get motivated (yesterday!) but in the wise words of one of my mentors - sometimes you need to put in a few months hard work to reap the benefits. And this is exactly what was said and is happening with the 100day challenge I am undertaking. I am working damn hard AND it's working, but I also recognise the importance of balance.

Today has taught me the importance of MAKING time for yourself - there are always excuses - always time to be "busy" and there will ALWAYS be a to-do list. Just make sure YOU are at the top of that list. You cannot be productive - successful - the best you, unless you look after yourself. What are the things you do to recharge, make yourself feel more like the you that everyone else loves?? 

Coming into Easter makes us all slow down and take some time. We are all living life at a more frantic pace - so take these holidays as a chance to remind yourself there is more to life than being 'busy', do what you love which will make your heart sing and you radiate happiness - the rest will fall into place. 

...Until Tomorrow xox

Day 251

I've let things lapse, I haven't been looking after myself as I should do. I have found myself 'too busy' for self care, and I have reached a point similar to where I was before I even started writing this blog...almost at exhaustion. I had a stern talking to myself today - I cannot continue the way I am going - or I will burn out. I am/was so busy making a living I forgot to focus on life. 

Business is going well, other work is awesome, bills are getting paid, savings building up...but personally? I haven't had a day off in almost 2 months, I'm short tempered, tired, flat and lack energy. And instead of doing great things I know revive me - exercise or blog or catching up with friends or hanging with buddy, I work harder, longer, strive for more then beat myself up for 'wasting' even a minute of my day. 

I will always be 'busy' and motivated and a go-getter, but somehow I have forgotten what the important things in life are - health, friends, family, relationships, freedom, LIVING!! So what to do?! How to make me be OK with the being aspect - and hopefully relishing in it again? Today I embark on my new 365day challenge - I will document it, I will relax (not just because someone tells me too!) and I will turn my life back into one that makes me smile and feel energised to be living!!

Life's not about judging yourself - we all fall back into those toxic habits - but about giving yourself the love and care when you need it. I need to focus on myself (not work or anything else). What toxic habit have you fallen back into?
