When I entered 2018, I consciously let go my victim mentality that I held onto for almost all my life. In short, I had a pretty rough (read: fucked up) childhood and I found that playing victim excused me from not doing as well or as much as my friends with better situations were doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Renting free space to the “victim” in my mind made me say “it’s okay that you’re not as cheerful or successful or motivated. you have all this extra baggage weighing you down, she has none so she can be those things easier.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stopped all of that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I took responsibility for working hard and staying optimistic for opportunities to better connect with people and to grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your energy introduces you before you say a word and knowing this, I wanted to radiate authentic, positive energy to attract those kinds of people. And I did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the baggage never lightened. I just changed the way I carry it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#mondaymotivation After a weekend of wet, windy #trails we’ve had a day in the office planning and finalising details for our next #trailrunning weekend.
We know it’s going to be a belter, but places are limited, and you could miss out. We’ve got a nice little incentive for those who register too, but again, that’s limited. If you want to be sure to get on board, crack on, and register.
Hey, Rebels! This is Domi. ⠀
I'm starting a new project and I thought that you may be interested.⠀
Do you feel like one day you were this fearless & spontaneous kid, and the other day you somehow woke up as this serious and uptight adult? 😑👩💻🧑⠀
Do you miss daring more, growing more and having more fun? 🙋🏻♀️💪🤪⠀
If you just said "Duh!", keep reading⠀
Because there's more to life than doing the same old crap!⠀
So I challenge myself to try 100 new things. Things I’ve never done before in my life.⠀
Break the routines. Step out of my comfort zone. Touch base with myself. ⠀
I don’t know. ⠀
I don’t even have the ideas for all the 100 things, so I’m really winging it. :)⠀
And what’s more, I’m not only making it public on social media (follow me on Insta & FB, so I feel more support & accountability) but I also invite you to join me.⠀
➡️ Give Trying New Things a Try! ⬅️⠀
I mean, just do something for the first time and find out what happens. ⠀
Maybe get inspired to try a few of things from my list.⠀
And if you really like challenges, try all 100 new things with me! ⠀
That would be super cool!⠀
It's called 100 New Things To Try - I link to it below. So come on in, stick around to see my progress, try new things, and share your wins!⠀
Stay Tuned! Keep Rebelling! ⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have got to do something different for anything to change. I realized that a few years ago and started an online business. Do you want something different? I hope you are reading this and realize that I can help you get started with this business too!! I know you think and wonder if you can really make it work and be successful. I know because I wondered the same thing. But I knew I had to do it and that I could do it!! You can do it too!! I will be here with you every step of the way to make it happen! I want to help you make the extra money you need! Drop an emoji for more info.
Even a very windy and wet weekend couldnt keep these three out of the water!

To improve at anything... be that our work, in sport or the hobbies that we’re passionate about... it is essential to get comfortable being uncomfortable... because growth, progress and new learnings come when we step out of our comfort zones. The trick is not to push too hard too soon and fall into the overwhelm zone... the trick is to keep nudging those boundaries of what’s comfortable... and over time... slowly increasing confidence and competence.

A grey day in London. Very interesting morning in the #jeremyvineon5 studio. I think I'm on the telly 🤩
Magnificent steak and gin @mashsteak last night, with my good friend who has just moved back from Hong Kong.
All round a fun mini adventure. More of these 🙏
I could stay up here for days, but I need to get home. Back in half-term with one of my boys whilst the other one heads to Madrid with James.
I have a goal in mind in regards to traveling. I am somewhat travel averse. I loathe huge crowds, uncertainty that comes up in airports because I usually am called to the side for additional checks, and let's face it, things can go awry on the road. However, my need for new experiences is pushing me and spirit is telling me it is time to throw caution to the proverbial wind and explore! So, I am going to do just that. Where am I going first? Hmmm, I will share when I leave🤗 #exploration#growth#evolve#dosomethingdifferent#divinemessages#DivineSoul
Our Box League has been set up for another year and is open to all! Every Sunday 2-4pm at the Sports Park Tennis Courts. 🎾🎉 Complete the link in our bio to sign up and be placed in the appropriate league!
What is Box League? 🤨 Box League is a friendly and welcoming tournament where you will be placed in different leagues depending on your level. Every other week you’ll need to play 3 ‘matches’, with the outcome determining whether you are promoted or relegated in the tournament. 🎾 The matches will be championship tie breaks to 10 points.
Worried about your level of tennis? 😰 No problem, as we have all levels of players from those who’ve never played before right up to our more experienced members! This is a great chance to try something new and get some experience in match play. Even if you’re not a member we’d like to welcome you to the courts. 😁
Still got questions? 🤔 Ask our President David @davidburrows13 or 1st Team BUCS Men’s Captain Jack @jack_murray1303 😊

The world tells us we are what we do, but really we are so much more than that. We are what we care about, how we make other people feel, and so much more than the thing we work on 9-5. You are more than what you do. Choose to define yourself by something else, and you'll feel liberated from your working identity. #dosomethingdifferent
Good morning everyone~ who else enjoys the weather? It’s so very nice still warm but not too warm. If you didn’t make a walk or went with friends, family, date, special someone outside please do so. Take all the pictures with fall leaves (pumpkin spice) post it everywhere and just have fun. In cold autumn rain it’s not as much pleasure to do as now 😉 this is this 🦊 advice for now #foxonherway#morning#morningsun#dosomethingyoulove#dosomethingdifferent
This is called a Tyrolean Traverse! It's when you use a fixed line to cross from one point to another, often over water. While wearing a harness, you clip onto the rope or cable to pull yourself across. Have you ever done a Tyro? @outwardboundnc
Imagine if we chose to to be kind in every interaction we had with each other no matter what - whether it’s a difference of opinion, perception, idea, belief, experience there’s absolutely no excuse to be unkind & treat the other as less than... I’m beginning to become disheartened as I observe & experience interactions between & with people that hold a different view, the willingness to tear & shut down another human being through aggressiveness under the guise of being assertive & honest - in truth everyone’s perception is their honesty & id like to believe that there is room for all of us to share & discuss matters that are important to us without aggression & anger & attacking another, this can only create further divide & instead choose kindness, compassion & a willingness to understand & engage in discussions around working towards resolve that creates unity.... I need to believe this is possible for us as a collective consciousness to achieve, because if I don’t than for me this isn’t a world that I want to exist in, where your every thought, feeling or perception is challenged & attacked & made wrong.... My wish is that we cease the fight of who’s right & who’s wrong - there’s room for everyone’s experience to be seen, heard & felt, regardless of whether you disagree or not...
If the energy is feeling stuck and stagnant... get outside. Get out of your head and or out the environment you're feeling stifled in. Change directions, change the energy flow. Get out of the house and give space and a chance for life to happen. ❤️🔥👍👣 And of course there are always multiple sides to a coin. We know this.
Self-regulate for sure. There ARE times that you must focus and hone in on a project and the work that you must do ... But 90% of the time: don't put a to-do list above your own well being ... It doesn't work. Do like Lincoln... And sharpen that axe! If you feel yourself going dull, if you feel like you are hitting your head against a brick wall and it's obviously not doing much good... Respect the energies and change directions! Break the pattern. Go for a walk. Eat something. Drink water. Reach out to someone. Stop arguing with yourself, and listen to what you need.
