Growing Is Part Of The Journey

We grow everyday. But growing looks different to each of us. Through growing, we might experience or notice behaviours that we didn’t even know we could do.

Growing can look like the following:

  • Going to therapy to treat past trauma.
  • Learning to trust others.
  • Creating connections that are meaningful.
  • Taking care of your health through diet and exercise.
  • Living in alignment with your values.

What else can you add?

Also, when thinking about growth, please don’t compare your journey to someone else. We all grow at our own pace.

All The Best,

What? Where?

Where are you going?

What do you want?

Everyday we get up and move. Everything that we do each day takes us on a journey that drinks us closer to our true selves and closer to becoming the best version of ourselves.

Knowing what we want and the type of person we want to be, knowing and beliefs and values are all part of this journey.

Whatever your goal is, it can be done. Your dreams can become a reality and your fears can be overcome.

The world has enough room for you to be happy and successful. Go get it.

All The Best,

Comparisons Serve No Purpose

Happy Sunday. I hope you are having a good weekend.

Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others?

It could be through seeng someone getting a promotion, buying a house, getting married or setting up a business while you are still working your way there.

You need to remember that every journey starts somewhere. If this is you:

  1. Remind yourself off your strengths and use these when working on your goals.
  2. Think back to the last couple of years. Look at the things that you have achieved?
  3. What advice would you give to your younger self? These lessons are important to remember.

Focus on your own journey rather than comparing yourself to what others have done so far.

All The Best,

You Glow Differently When You Are Happy

It might be time for a change. 

The holiday blues may be with me, but at the same time, something is missing. 

I love London and I love my home, but I can’t help and see that outside of London and even the UK there may be a happier way of living. 

Being abroad has made me realise that a lot of things about the way I am living is missing. 

People smile. People are polite. People are relaxed. 

I don’t want to sit here and struggle to make ends meet, nor work to not even be able to enjoy the money I earn because the cost of living is high. 

Life is to be enjoyed and we only have one shot at it and ever since the pandemic, being happy and fulfilled has become peoples main focus, mine included. 

I haven’t experienced living outside the UK but it is a goal of mine.

Time to chase these dreams.

Be Patient

It is okay to be confused about this chapter of your life. 

This is just the beginning for you. You have so much more to discover, learn and do. 

You might feel as though you should be further along on your journey, but the best thing that you can do is to be kind and be patient with yourself. 

Good things take time. Allow yourself to rest and know that things are falling into place. 

Feel The Feeling

Following on from my last post about emotions coming and going, today I want to talk about how we can look after ourselves when it comes to emotions. 

  1. Be aware. That is key. Just being aware of how we feel. Start the day asking yourself how are you feeling?
  2. Balance. Find a balance though the things that you are doing in life so that you do not become overwhelmed to the point where there is no switching off. 
  3. Find a good way to express emotions. This can be though the use of music, writing, drawing. Just don’t bottle them up. 
  4. Find out what truly matters to you. By discovering what is important, it can help us to control our emotions through factoring in the time to do these things. 

Emotions are part of the journey. If you can master your emotions, you will be able to be happier and live a more peaceful life.

Slow Down

We are now half way through January. 

How have you been finding your January? 

My January has been a bit slower than normal, but that is okay. 

It means I can go with the flow. In some instances slowing down can be good because it has given me the time to set my intentions for the next few months along with having a different perspective on life.

Life is a journey. We can’t control how fast or slow life goes but what we can do is take a step back and go with the flow. 

What Should You Stop Doing?

Two things that you should stop doing are comparing yourself to other people and waiting for the certain time to start doing what you want to do. 

By stopping comparing yourself to others. It doesn’t matter whether it is the house that they live in, or the fitness progress they have made, no one is the same. 

Don’t wait for the perfect opportunity to start your journey. These moments do not exist. Waiting for the perfect moment is you putting off all the things that you are fearful off. 

Trust your feelings and go with them. Get the support you need but you have got this. 

Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway

If nothing is happening for you, why might that be?

Life changes when you start stepping out of your comfort zone and stop doing what is seen as the “norm”. 

Life happens when we start putting ourselves out there. 

If you are scared, that is only part of the process. Once we start letting ourselves feel the fear and stop being afraid of failing, that is when you truly start to let life happen.

Learning to get past the bumps in the road, is learning to live and love your life. 

Nothing is impossible. 

The Week Is Yours

It is a new week.

If you need something to take into this week here it is:

  • It is okay to say no. If you don’t feel up to doing something, say no. It doesn’t make you a bad person. 
  • Don’t put yourself out for others just to make them happy. If you have a lot of tasks you need to be doing, focus on the main ones and what you can do. Don’t overwork or over do it. 
  • Don’t try and impress everyone. If one thing in life is certain, someone is always going to judge or criticise you. The only person you need to make happy is yourself.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel as though something isn’t good or doesn’t feel right, the chances are it isn’t. 
  • Allow yourself to feel the emotions you do. It is all part of the journey. 

What things are you taking into this week?
