What are you grateful for ? Sometimes we get so caught up with the little things that don’t go to plan and we don’t stop to appreciate the things we do have. Health. Family. Ability to travel. Today I’m grateful for my support network that are always there to pick me up when I fall down. Tell me what are you grateful for?
She's so deeply in tune with herself and she relies on nothing but prayer. Her bounce back game from the struggles she encounter always solid. She's open minded yet strong willed. She listens before she speaks. She reevaluates her daily routines and the company she keeps often because it's essential for her own well being. She isn't afraid to outgrow people or places or things because she knows that in order to grow certain shit has to be left behind. She's aware that everybody can't go where God is trying to take her. She does not allow bad energy or negativity into her space. She speaks everything she aspires into existence. She is a woman who is aware of her worth. She's been through it all yet she still stands ten freshly manicured toes down. At times she may bend but she'll never fold. She was made heavy, half blade and half silk. She lives her life intentionally to match her vision, not the other way around. 💙
@clare_pooley shared this and it served as a reminder for me to reflect on just how much has changed in the last 15 months.
From a binge drinking, over drawn, London living media gal - to a countryside dwelling yoga teacher with over 15 months sober time under her belt.
Words cannot explain how happy I am to have made the decision that I was not drinking anymore back in December 2016.
On that day I had no idea what would happen next, I just knew that i was fed up of the life I was living, of the cyclical nature of having week night blackouts and of the frequent questionable decisions I was making.
Now I have Margot (the daschund), a career that I love, deepened friendships + new friends, no overdraft and a lovely countryside home I share with my brother.
I cannot wait for the next 15 months - what’s next?! xxxx
Please tell me I’m not the only one?
I live for mornings that are super low key and for days we don’t have any place to be.
You know what I mean the days where you don’t even know if you’ve brushed your hair, you’re still in your pjs because your just so chill. These days are few and far between so I soak them up for all there worth.
Working on ordering my groceries and lil miss decides to climb up and snuggle with me. Love snuggling my babies. Life is good!
Voltaire said that "to hold a pen is to be at war."
Our pens are both offensive and defensive weapons.
We use them to fight for the values we hold dear.
We use them for refuge, retreating into pages and pages of solace and solitude whenever we feel lost, lonely, sad, or scared.
We use them to rally others, to imbue them with boldness, courage, confidence, and hope, even in the face of giants.
We use them to protect others too, to shield them from the fusillades of arrows sent to dispirit and confuse, and ultimately destroy.
It's a powerful object you hold in your hands (whether literally or figuratively 😉). This #thankfulthursday , I'm grateful I get to wield it every day. Have a victorious day, warriors! ⚔️🖊💜
Thank you our incredible speaker @RosieStancer for speaking at our Thought Leadership Breakfast this morning! 👏 Since 1996, Rosie has embarked on a series of major polar expeditions, in 2003 she skied solo and without resupply to the South Pole. Hauling a sledge more than twice her body weight for over 1000 km, she smashed previous speed records by 7 days, completing the extreme endurance challenge in 43 days 23 hours. In 2007, journeying alone over the surface of the frozen Arctic Ocean for 84 days, Rosie traveled further than any previous attempts by women to reach the North Pole solo. She battled conditions now recognised as the worst on record. Rosie is currently in the midst of preparing for her next challenge; in September, Rosie will be crossing through the interior of the Taklamakan Desert and travelling the full length of nearly 1,000 km over its giant, shifting sand dunes – and out the other side. With temperatures reaching between -20c at night and above 38c by day the expedition will provide challenging extremes to be tackled along the way. Through her Scottish family connections Rosie is also a cousin of Her Majesty The Queen! A big thank you to our incredible host and Adoreum Club Member, @batterseapwrstn , for providing yet another amazing setting to host our event. #ThoughtLeadership#Adoreum#expedition
Taking things to the next level!
We can’t sit around and wait for our lives to get easier.... we have to seek opportunity and take advantage!
We have one life, right!?
We should WANT to spend it with family! We SHOULD BE traveling, experiencing, and having the time to learn more about who we are!!
Not slaving away at a 9-5 with life restrictions!?
Set yourself FREE! Believe in yourself! Get out of your own head! Fight for your LIFE!
