I was trying to explain to Zachary today on our longish car journey about ‘fear’.
It all began with us noticing the fluffy clouds looked like mountains. So I proceeded to say that you can sometimes be ABOVE clouds when your skiing on a mountain range...
Q’ him saying “oh I’d never do that I’d be too scared, I’d rather just do an indoor one” 😑😡
You already know my blood was boiling by this point right? 😂
So then proceeded a lecture for my son about ‘fear’
Now whilst I’m not going to recall it all word for word, the reason I’m sharing is because it does make me reflect on the characters we help create in our children.
He’s such a cautious kid, calculated and calm. But his confidence and bravery needs some work. Without Pinterest to help me (I was driving) I went with my heart and started talking about feeling fears vs feeling regrets and how you can more often overcome fear, but most regrets are undoable.
The conversation moved onto how things are invented and how people just decided one day to solve problems and then inventions happen. How THESE people didn’t know what to do first they just got on with it and made it up, made mistakes and FELT THE FEAR anyway.
This then flowed into me asking him what he would do if he wasn’t scared.
We started with him telling me he wanted to find a new species in the Amazon rain forest. I asked him what was scary about that? He replied that it was all the killer bugs and snakes... I think I might of shocked him a bit as I said that the Amazon is probably a safe bet as it’s no different to going to work and being an adult as there are just as many - if not more - toxic people and companies out there that want your blood.
We finally settled on him finding a new solar system but building a room big enough to give him enough air.
So what have I summarised from this?
Scare the the fuck out of them yourself by telling them everyone is out to get them 😬🤔🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
And that life is one big scary adventure anywhere you go.
Just feel the fear and do it anyway.
Yep . Current mood . Dead #flamingo 🤣🤣🤣 these grey days are not good for my soul ! X it’s still #August ... need more #sunshine please and less #Monday !!!! Although have got amazing delivery arriving today ....pics to follow ... and of course, we have our new #sportswear#athleisure brand from @loxton.clothing in store right now @lollyandmitch !!!!

Last time I was here the ice storm was so crazy I could barely see and the snow was waist deep, on top of a thick layer of ice. Much nicer to be back but without all the "I wanna fucking die" weather. Footage isn't quite as remarkable though 😜 Out here helping some friends with their workshop and travelling with my sister. Despite the travelling I've been spending most of my time glued to the computer working on deadlines when I'm not in transit. The views are pretty sweet though. I can see why so many of my Newfie friends mourn having to leave the rock for work. It's pretty fucking fancy out here.

The photo on the left was taken less than 12 months before I had a cardiac arrest and near death experience #nde (clinically dead for 3 minutes)! Sometimes u have to hit rock bottom to make significant healthy changes to ur lifestyle
It’s now 1 month shy of 10 years since that almost fatal day, and what a change the last decade has brought me.
I don’t know where I’d be today if it wasn’t for that very significant moment in my life - definitely not where I am now tho.
When your life is almost taken from u it gives u massive appreciation, insight and #gratitude for life and #health
I learned that health is the foundation for a rewarding, fulfilling, joyful, abundant life.
Life is a gift - and it comes with #responsibility and an obligation and duty to fulfill your #purpose while you’re here.
We all have significant purpose in our lives. The work is identifying what it is and having the #ballsofsteel to go out and make it happen - or #getshitdone as I like to say. Despite all the assholes trying to bring down your dreams and hold u back from your birth right which is pure #abundance on every level.
Our biggest road block is ourselves. We talk so much shit to ourselves that we begin to believe it.
I realised that my #mind can be programmed - So I took over the job, wiped the old #limitingbeliefs and rewrote a new program.
One of ultimate success, longevity, wealth, love, service to others, peace and a mind that I #control - not bullshit #doomandgloom fear mongering media or negative influences.
My future is planned. I wrote it. Now it’s time to #execute and attack my goals like a hungry lion! 🦁
