If only life was this sequenced...
I've got two choices,
1. dwell on the effed up nature of some people and their behaviour and actions, or
2. Keep it moving... I know which one serves me best, but up until today it'd been hard to process several recent events cos I'd been teaching for two weeks straight & my brain was frazzled.
Anyhow, after having a little downtime over the last 24 hours, plus hauling my ass off into town for a brilliantly intense workout this morning, I feel both have helped me restore some sense of equilibrium.

How much do you really see?We are in an age of overthinking, judgment, and careful consideration where we do not put a foot wrong. What happens when we actually see our journey for our journey and not if somebody thinks negatively about it?This image was all in good fun but it can say so much if you put another perspective on it.Did I use it on my personal insta? Yes.Was I having a lot of fun? Yes. Is somebody going to say "what a weirdo"? Yes. Have people told me I am too weird? Yes.Did anybody besides myself and my partner, @caitlinjade7 witness any time we spent together having a blast at 1770? No. Would anything have changed if they did? No.Start focusing on your own journey. Do not try and compete with others. It is not about them. It is about you. Yes, we go further with others, but the sole focus is still you. Focus on you and your health will be infinitely brighter. Oh, this is an athlete Instagram? Yes. Health matters to everybody. I mean mental health. I mean physical health. I mean overall health. Focus on your goddamn self and do not bow down to what others say you should do or worse, what you think they may be thinking. Be selfish. Be resilient. Be you. Be 100% you. Only you can take care of yourself...... #fridaypositivity#positive#mindset#havefun#mentalhealth#friday#friyay#strong#fit#fast#healthy#revolve#evolve#bebetter#effthehaters#loveyourself#love#happy#smile#selfish

#throwbackthursday to a whole year ago when I set out to conquer 2018 ... well that year kicked me straight up the jacksie with more setbacks & challenges than I would like to admit 😬
But the good news is ... I fell down (a lot!) & I got back up and I’m ready for another year where I can turn the tides and kick it’s ass instead!! -
Peace out 2018 ✌
You were a trying year to say the least.. But I'm a better woman because of it. Remember to always just be yourself and to love yourself. Those are the most important things i learned this year. It's a simple concept but very hard to actually do... But I'm rocking it!! 😁 #happynewyear#effthehaters#beyou
If there is one thing I have learned as a person, a mother, a wife, a friend, a business owner, a public figure, etc...it’s that you can’t be everything to everyone, nor can you please everyone. To be a success, you have to accept what you can and cannot control. It’s been a hard life lesson, but I’m proud that I have learned this lesson. I no longer get hurt by other people’s dissatisfaction with me or what I do. If you don’t like me or get me, then fuck you. I don’t need your negativity in my life. I may not have millions of followers, or make tons of money, but I’m happy. And that, to me, is success. #effthehaters#seasonsofchange#overcomingobstacles#myjourney#entrepreneur#selfdiscovery#vcnfitness

You wanna know something? I've spent 91.4% of my life trying to hide. (And yes, super nerd in me did that math 😂) ➡️Hide my imperfections
➡️Hide what I felt wasn't good enough ➡️Hide what I felt others might not like in me
➡️Hide from sounding or feeling stupid or "uncool" ...From my belly, to my opinions, to my ideas, to my weirdness.
I've only in the last few years started really being proud of me - my body, my mind, my fear facing, my accomplishments, even my failures - and allowing that to show, feeling confident in my skin. And in doing so, having the approval of others fade off little by little from my radar.
Because I got tired of my own bullshit. I made an effort to stop living in the story that I was telling myself was my life. I decided to do what I always wanted to (AKA lose the goddamn weight, stick to something healthier, stop participating in social norms that were making me feel bad, stop feeling sorry for myself and most importantly stop beating myself up and treating myself like crap - physically and emotionally) even tho at the time I felt I couldn't and that it wasn't "who I am" and that I maybe didn't deserve it if I got it. In making the decision and then actually doing the things every day, I didn't have as much time to worry about all the external bullshit, and I felt BETTER. Which was a strong indicator that I was WAY closer to who I truly was.
So, guys, let's make a pact, ey... No more making ourselves small to make others feel (what we assume will make them) more comfortable. No more living or not living, our life because of someone maybe not deeming it appropriate or aesthetic or OK or not. No more picking ourselves apart or considering ourselves unworthy. No more hiding. No more. ❤️

It’s starts with yourself🥰I learnt so much already in the last two days that I can walk into a pool in a bikini being a little bit chubby and the world is not going to the end. Please don’t hate yourself over the way you look there are people who will always stare regardless of what you look like! Embrace what you have got and what your working towards am I 100 happy with how I look no but I’m on holiday and I am on the beach and I have a body therefore I have a beach body 😂😂 however I am going to the gym and yoga but for the first time in all my life I am wearing a bikini #effthehaters#curvy#burnt#redhead#selflove#mentalhealthawareness
