On the journey of coming home to ourselves, feeling broken, like we are not enough, or feeling like we are too much are often narratives we run up against.
These are self-limiting, society instilled beliefs that keep us small and drown our truth.
The truth that we are, every single one of us on this glorious planet, whole + complete within ourselves. We are self-sustaining, unique, intelligent, and inspiring.
Other people do not give that to us; only we can give that to ourselves. The people in our lives are here to support us and help us on our path. We are here to share and and show up as uniquely us and bring our sense of wholeness to our communities and to our world.
And that starts with the simple, profound, deeply loving truth that we are whole + complete within ourselves.
In spite of loss, grief, success, failure, age, relationship status, we can always affirm our wholeness + completeness to ourselves. Because that foundation is unwavering.
And this is what we desire to build our relationships from: strength + power + the keen ability to know our own worth. We are wholly and completely worthy. And lovable. And enough.
BALI, YOU’VE BEEN EPIC
I fly back to the UK tomorrow, excited and sad to be leaving.... The real magic as always happened off line. In no particular order this is a little of the in real life highlight reel:
Nearly dying on a water slide
Losing two bank cards to the ATM at the end of my road
Mending a painful break in an important friendship
Let go of someone extremely special to me, a little clunkier than I’d of liked
Created new products and stepped into the world of online marketing
Discovered Mark Groves, Kyles Cease and Kissy Denise
Cried in yoga, co-working spaces and cafes
Drank tequila, discovered mangosteen (fruit) and ate all the Ubud raw cashew and raisin chocolate
Twerked, tantra style
Yoga’d, chanted and meditated, 50+ times at The Practice
Applied for a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training
Had my first (and hopefully last) Christmas away from my family
Read five books, listened to two and a bit
Filled three journals
Cried some more, laughter harder
Overstayed my visa
Took on two epic clients
Met an incredible friend who’s already impacted my life the most beautiful way
Flirted with epic men
Decided to move to London
Got some crackin’ white bits
Entered a business partnership and built my dream team
Nailed 2020 intentions and strategy
Embodied, for the first time in my life,
what it’s like feel safe in my own body,
in my own power.
It’s taken 37 years of breaking the rules, failing hard, laughter, work, play and a fuck tonne of support.
I’m not ‘fixed’, I was never broken lolz...
but it is a massive step into myself and into my ability to show up with the most vulnerability and authenticity I can, in biz, in life and in love.
Epic doesn’t begin to cover it.
On the other end of the spectrum... I still haven’t learnt to ride a scooter, but that’s more for others peoples safety. 🤷🏼♀️ Bali, I love you.
London, get ready.
