No.2 of my new found hobby "Don't forget to give yourself some love"
Everyone of us is struggling at some point with something. It doesn't matter if it is an external or internal cause. But what does matter is, that we often forget the most important thing: ourselves.
We are down in the rabbithole, frustrated, tired, angry, breathless, sad. If you are in this rabbithole right now, take a step back, close your eyes and just breath. Nothing else.
What I like to imagine in such moments is a plant in the dry, hot, waterless desert. If you can imagine one, do it. This little plant finds its way out of the dry sand all by itself, again and again. If this plant can do this, so can you.
If this plant is so attached to its life, and uses every little crack in the earth to come out, so you can find this crack aswell and breath.
If this little plant can do this, so can you! So don't forget yourself in this hard times. Give yourself some love and patience.
A quick 10k run, pushed hard at the end of a long day, currently in Sydney for four days on business, loving the daylight saving... not sure about the handlebars though 🤔... .
Im currently training for a goal I set myself. To run from Kalgoorlie to Perth, 600km, all on the road, all in the name of @headspace_aus and mental health awareness. I will be starting to fundraise from January 2019 and will be doing the run in July 2019, assisted again by my amazing support crew. This is a challenge that will continue through for 24hrs a day. I will do this, I know I can, my mind will drive me, my family will inspire me, my friends, will probably end up carrying me.. ❤
If you believe you can, you will;
If you want to achieve the impossible and make it possible, you can;
If you want to live life then take it with both hands;
If at times your scared & nervous, good because your outside your comfort zone, breaking barriers;
If your ambitious mind has the better of you, let it;
If your the only one who dares to believe in your ability, keep going, never ever give up, and conquer what you set out to achieve ❤🏃♂️ .
Have an amazing week beautiful people ❤🏃♂️👍

Welcome to Motivational Mondays!
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
Now. What I am realizing with motivation and the drive to achieve goals, is that sometimes I'm just too afraid to step outside my comfort zone and just go for what I want or take a calculated risk.
This is not so much applicable for personal goals that won't have much effect on my life as a whole (like improving health and fitness by tamping up my workout frequency) but more for goals that would mean a shift in the status quo. Stuff that would enable me to up my income or do what I want rather than what I have to.
When ever I see the possibilities of these and the opportunities to which it would lead I become really nervouse for some reason and my energy plummets and I lose the vision.
This is a perfect example of self sabotage and a 'worthiness issue' that (from what I hear and see) women are much more likely to experience than men.
If you can do something, be proud of it. If you want to go after something, go after it. If something makes you happy, do it.
This is something I really need to work on. To allow myself to go big, to accept the possibility of actual success through hard work and devotion and realize that I am worthy of achieving whatever I can dream up for myself and the people close to me.
Anything is possible if you are willing to work smarter not harder and when you take ACTION!!! #ReflectionSunday . One years ago I was offered a gift. One that I almost didn't accept. The gift of this opportunity to help other women feel PASSIONATE about makeup. To feel CONFIDENT to try new things. To look in the mirror even without makeup on and say "Damn, I look good". This business has given me so much! Not only that extra money in my bank account, but friendships with women all over the world. I love getting messages from women saying they LOVE their lashes, pictures from them trying new looks . It honestly warms my heart!
This business has given me the SELF CONFIDENCE I needed, when I needed it the most. It has pushed me outside of my comfort zone to succeed and showing others how they can succeed.
Honestly, I didn't know a thing about makeup, but I learned. I didn't know a thing about skin care, but I learned. And now it is time for me to help other learn as well. Being able to use a quality line that does not contain parabens or a bunch of junk that would harm my body, or that is tested on animals.. THAT is what means so much to me. To be able to share about the incredible products and the mission of this company.
I don't even want to think about where I would be right now if I didn't accept this gift. And now it is my time to offer this gift to others in hopes that they see what it has done for me and that it could do the same for them. #mywhy#reflectandbegrateful#bestdecisionever#youcandothis#costarica 🇨🇷 #makeup#tica
For some, running seems like a monotonous activity, but my experience has been quite the opposite. Every run and every marathon has something different to offer, if only I am willing to notice. ⠀
If I run when I am preoccupied, I don't even realize when I'm back home. BUT it's when I pay a little bit of attention outside of myself, I start seeing the wonder that is around me: the beautiful sunrise, the cool breeze, the melodious birdsong, or the synced rhythm of my footsteps with that of a friend's. Every time it's something different, making every run a joy. ⠀
So, here's a reminder to lean into the seemingly mundane and take in what's actually in front of you. You never know what a treat it'll be! ⠀
Have you ever noticed something new on your daily route? What was it? I'd love to know! ⠀
I see a dozen of people each month say that they need a change in their life, that they wish things would be better... and even right now when it’s only $20 (!!!!) to join ... They still don’t believe in themselves enough to try 😭😭😭 The worst that can happen? You get $150 in products for only $20.
The best? ...... you entire life changes. And if you NEED that change.... stop giving excuses. Just stop.
Trust yo damn self ❤️❤️❤️
🎤Fix you🎤 today i was inspired by @nina.shadi to talk about mental health. Everyone at some point in their lives have struggled with depression and/or anxiety and it's ok to talk about it. Is not a stigma, is not a taboo and it shouldn't be something embarrassing to talk about. We are humans, we have flaws, we're allowed to feel sad and we're allowed to make tough decisions and ask for help when we need it. We don't have to "man up" or to hear the words "is just a phase". Every mental illness should be taken seriously and treat it with care. So surround yourselves with people that make you happy, people that understand you and will be able to help you no matter what, and do more things that make you happy. Your job is not everything, money is not everything, but your inner peace is more powerful than you think. To everyone out there struggling with a mental illness, we walk together and we stand together. Much love ❤️
