UNLOCK #6 : Gratitude
Could you count the number of emotions you have felt in your lifetime? What about the number of experiences you have had? What about combinations of different emotions with different experiences? Would it be hundreds? Thousands? Millions?
Isn’t our ability as humans to have such diverse experiences beautiful?
It’s easy for our mind to label the experiences ‘good’ or ‘bad’ / ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ but in doing that, we’re placing limits on something that is limitless.
Gratitude is the practice of being thankful and during THE WEEKEND, we’ll look at how we can apply that practice to the full experience of life – not just the “good” bits. “The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.” - Dr. Robert Holden.
We are so excited to introduce @leanne_prichard to you all! Leanne is such an inspiration to Mums and all women really! We can’t wait to have her at our first MOMM event on May 20.
Why does Leanne want to be involved with MOMM??
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be involved with MOMM. Inspiring women to feel stronger, have more confidence and believe in themselves is what drives me in my own health and wellbeing career. We need to support and share more, and that’s exactly what MOMM are doing!
Inspiring other women through my own lived experience - using words and movement - is a true passion of mine.
Having raised a daughter on my own, built a career and survived a critical illness - health and wellbeing have been integral to my journey and will always be. It’s given me focus, strength, courage and most importantly built resilience - something all mums need! MOMM are providing an amazing platform for mums to nourish their own wellbeing and take some ‘me' time. 💖
💕ENGAGEMENT 💕 we were going to wait and share pics with you soon but we just received our @modobooth pictures and they are too good not to share 😍 THANK YOU @modobooth for coming to our engagement party - it is seriously THE most beautiful booth I have seen and Ellie will custom design your photo strip! This coupled with @lunar_balloons balloon garland and you have the PERFECT COMBO 💕 MORE TO COME 💕
Twine Cake - What a dream it was to deal with the beautiful now, Casey Minto. Casey’s instructions were simple. She didn’t like bling and she wanted twine around the cake. 3 tiers of chocolate cake wrapped up in fondant and decorated with fondant flowers. Did I forget to mention the delivery to Manghawai? That was the hardest part I have to say. Thanks @designat409 for the beautiful topper as always! Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Minto! May you have many, many happy years ahead of you both.
At the end of a long day, I often find that I seem to have run out of the Holy Spirit.⠀
In the daily challenge of getting through our tasks and ticking off the lists we have, it is easy to lose sight of who we are and who God is.⠀
But as children of the promise of God, we are created to be His children, to carry His identity and to be citizens of heaven here on earth. ⠀
I will be speaking about this at the Seers Conference with Ps Reg Morias at the Living Faith Community Church in Perth and if you are in the area, I would love you to join me. Check out doveministries.com for details.⠀
Toy Train Cake - This was a last minute cake for little Scarlett-Rose and her cousin Carter. 8” chocolate cake decorated with neutral colours for the two little munchkins. Don’t you just love open briefs? Thanks Lisa for the opportunity. Hope they both had an awesome time!
Next weekend! 🙌🏼🎶🤩#Repost @musicinparks with @get_repost

Introducing the lovely @hannahmachealth We’re so happy Hannah has come on board the MOMM journey AND to celebrate we’ll be joining her as she takes us through a workout next week!
Hannah is a holistic nutritionist, PT and a mum of two. Hannah also did an extra paper during her studies on the female endocrine system (hormones) especially postpartum so she understands the most beneficial exercise/diet for women but mum's especially 🙌🏼 Why does Hannah want to be involved with MOMM?? With all the great advances in technology, equal rights etc this is an exciting time for women, it is also the hardest time ever for mums, we try to do it all, work, cook, clean, be a good lover, be a perfect mother and all the while time after time putting ourselves on the back burner, MOMM to me is what we are missing from today's busy times, it’s the village that will support us, it’s the other people that want to help and I am so happy to be working alongside this concept, we all need to learn to put ourselves first a little more, that's exactly what you will get from these events and if I can help lift you up physically, nutritionally and mentally within these amazing times then I am one happy mum. I know you will be too!
Wonder Woman and Wolverine! 💑 (Can I see you together please, in the next movie?) #favouritepair
Presenting a superhero inspired bridal henna.This time I thought of changing things up a bit. Instead of the traditional bride and groom portrait, why not turn it into superheroes?
Customisation is what I am all about. 🤓
