I think the work-life- balance act can be really difficult. I have definitely not perfected it, a prime example is I'm cooking tea now... at 8pm. 💕
challenge is about how I build inspiration in to my work. Its really an area I'm still working on but I find I have to take time out each day to focus on my mindset. 💕
If I don't stay positive, I can't stay productive. I set aside time everyday to do something to help my mind which usually turns out to be exercise. 💕
Once I've been on a run, I'm happier, positive, productive and inspiration flows. So ... how do you find inpiration?

. While they walk you run. While they sleep you train. While they talk you do. While they hold back, you go forward. While they focus on taking more, you focus on giving more. No one escapes the laws of the universe. For what you put out, will most certainly come back.

Well after my last post, I was just asking for trouble wasn't I. The last few days have been quite difficult, especially yesterday. I felt defeated and devastated but I refuse to let the choice a of others and the inability to be kind set me back and ruin my plans. Keep moving forwards, always. Aiming for that feeling when I can look at all those people who don't believe in me and say 'i did it!' #choosehappy #ididit #movingforwards #thelifeyouwant #goals
S T O P comparing yourself to other people ✋🏽 It’s so easy to do but it can be so damaging to your self esteem and relationships...why bother? Buuut we tend to do things that are bad for us even though we know the outcome won’t be good 🍪🍩🥞🥨😂😝
Mini rant up on #storyville
on this topic, because I fell into this trap myself today and had to stop and think for a few mins about why on earth I was in that headspace and how it was making me feel 👉🏽💩💩 There’s honestly no need peeps. Just compare yourself to who you were yesterday, and keep moving forward. You got this 😎✨✨
A few weeks ago my youngest started school.
It's an adjustment period in progress - that's for me as well as her 🤣 as its left me a tad on the heart broken side. She is my second and last baby and so my nest is empty 5 days a week - turns out there's an added level of emotion when that child is the one with whom you suffered post natal depression and separation anxiety with too - it's brought up lots of past feeling and emotion.
On the flip side - it's put me at a point in my life and career where I need to consider what's next for me and my business.
After a turbulent summer i felt I was at a bit of a cross road with it and what I wanted to do but then as if by magic and some perfect timing, I met an amazing lady at my networking meet last week who works to support and mentor start up and new businesses.
I'm on board!!! Today I went to a workshop that focused on building an efficient business and I took so many notes and so much away from it. You know you mean business when you crack into a new notebook for the occasion 😍😉
I'm very keen to make the most out of this opportunity, run with it and see how I can grow my business between now and the end of the year.
New stuff to come I'm sure - or maybe just me getting better and shouting about the existing stuff 🤣
The strength and determination of some people out there blows my mind. From being seriously ill and countless surgeries. The mental and physical challenges to get through and today this happened............. If you knew this ladies story you'd understand where I'm coming from. Walking on the treadmill unaided. So proud of you Dee 💪💪💪💪💪 #movingforwards #noquitting #onestepatatime #gymlife #ptlife #proudpt #ma
It’s time to get back to the grind I’ve wasted enough time worrying about things can’t change there’s only moving forward from here #movingforwards
Only Tuesday?! This week has been hectic already and it's about to get a whole lot busier. I'm Terrible for trying to do everything at once and ending up giving up and just leaving everything 🙈 So, what with the fact Im starting a new job, changing my daughter's nursery, buying a new car and taking my ex to court (all when uni is about to start up again 😱) I am determined to focus on one thing at a time as much as possible, despite the fact so much has to be done in such a short space of time! Today, the focus is the car. I've found one which would be perfect so I'm going to see it this afternoon. Hoping that if it's nice I can put a deposit down and maybe even get it on Thursday when my cheque from my grandad clears 🤞. Tonight, were having a sleepover at my mum's. So after seeing the car, my sister is going to look after P while I print some evidence for the solicitor and drop it off there and then drop my existing car at the garage to have the bodywork done that it needs before going back. Phew! How does everyone else work it when there are loads of things to do at once? #norestforthewicked #takeiteasy #onedayatatime #onethingatatime #tuesday #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtfreeuk #debtfreeby2022 #keepgoing #movingforwards #positivethinking #happiness #singlemum #carshopping
IS THIS REAL?! It makes me very nervous to admit that everything in my life is going amazingly at the moment!! It doesn't quite feel real.
In the past week my goals are taking shape, I feel good in myself, I'm focussed, work is good, my relationship is amazing, my life is organised. Everything is moving in the right direction.
Why is it though that in the back of my mind it feels too good to be true and that something is bound to go wrong!! Time to squash those horrible little voices and enjoy how great this feels!! #choosehappy #everythingisgood #movingforwards #focussed #positivelife #feelinggreat #keepingmomentum
It’s late! BUT- Wow uplifted, energised, inspired & a bit emotional after being invited to deliver a Workshop on Happiness, release, living in the now, letting go, being self through experiential learning/ doing it- being it.
The most 💕loving group of people. I gave as much energy, passion, care & appreciation as I could & it came flooding back from everyone- thank you I felt so welcome 🙏 .
🎥 1 setting off for the Lakes tonight.
2- The inspiring group- privileged to be a small part of a long learning journey.
3- On the way out of the door I saw this.....it made me, stop, think & it has shifted a mind-set perception for me- I’m grateful.
Learning through experience & having time to process & critically reflect & express in a way that emerges through consciousness rising & having the space/time to do that can be so healing.
Everyday I have the opportunity to express myself through ‘movement’,-
When we are together in our community groups doing classes, the physical, health aspects, benefits are just the tip of the iceberg... 90% of the positive changes, mentally & physically are happening behind the scenes.
Every day I feel joy being in your presence- thank you from my heart & soul.
Have a super Sunday

People keep asking me "Why do you want to solo row the Atlantic?"
Well I'm doing it to raise awareness about physical and mental trauma in young people. Each day I'm on the ocean I'll be rowing for a different young person.
Someone just like Millie.
Here's her story..... "I am Millie, and this is my story. Not my life story of course, but the story of how my life was forever changed.
On May 22nd, 2017, my life much like many others was changed forever. The morning of that day was so exciting. Me and my best friend were on our way to a new city, Manchester, to meet and see our favourite singer Ariana Grande. We danced and sang our little hearts out. I will never forget the feeling of pure happiness that I felt that night.
As we were leaving the concert, we were unknown to what was about to happen to us. I was 4 metres away from a now known terrorist. I suffered injuries to my legs, arm and face. I was in hospital for 2 weeks, have had 2 operations and need more in the future. The event has left me with physical scarring and tinnitus that I will have forever, but also mental scars. Being a teenager living with PTSD and anxiety is something that no one could ever prepare for. Each day is a struggle to stay positive but making new memories and constantly being surrounded by love from my family and friends is something that I will never take for granted.
Climbing Out taught me so much about myself. It gave me lifelong friends and showed me that its okay not to be okay sometimes. It showed me strength that I didn’t even know I had. I am so forever grateful for Kelda and her team for giving me life skills that I never knew I had or needed.
Never let a bad situation bring out the worst in you. Be strong and choose to be positive." #manchester #ariannagrande #concert #manchesterarena #youngpeople #terrorism #movingforwards #strength #strengththroughadversity #inspirational #whatagirl #climbingout
Are you moving forwards, or going backwards? There is no in-between.
Currently working with the most amazing client & recently helped her declutter before her house move, pack up the remaining things & do all her changes of addresses etc. Now for the most fun part! Unpacking & getting organised so the home runs like clockwork. Looking at what habits she needs to establish to keep it that way. When your home gives you energy from the inside out, the effect on you can't be underestimated. You can rule the world!
So today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay
and it also happens to be 2 weeks since I finally stopped smoking; the 2 might not seem connected, but for me they are - I started smoking when I was at my most suicidal and attempted to replace self-harming with smoking; it didn’t work and whilst I eventually had support to move away from the suicidal thoughts, I continued to smoke for (so many) years later - continuing to harm myself from the inside. I had attached a lot to smoking, including the belief that I could not cope with difficult or challenging situations or feelings or that I deserved to genuinely love and care for myself. I have spent the last 6 months removing those beliefs and whilst not smoking has come with anxious feelings, random fits of tears, headaches and insomnia, it has also been mentally much easier than expected and completely freeing 💕
Know that you have everything within you to make the positive changes you want; even if it takes you a long time. There is support out there, there are people who understand, who have been there also, who have made mistakes, and who have worked through suicidal thoughts, feelings and behaviours 💕
I’ll be speaking at the #TowardsZeroSuicide
event for @quietconnections
on Wednesday, if you’re in Truro please come along to see how organisations in Cornwall are working towards preventing suicide xxx

GREATNESS IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE✨
There are so many things that can limit you from being the best you. It can be anyone from your worst enemy to biggest cheerleader. Sometimes you have to tell the voices to stop telling what you should do. You already know deep down that nothing can hold you back. This is what I’m trying to continually realize. It can be hard to push forward when so many want you to stop. But just keep your head down and move on. Sometimes it’s ourselves keeping us from doing big things. Now is the time. Don’t be scared and face your fears. I’m going to try and do that, but it’s a constant telling my self to stop being scared of the what if’s. Hope you all have a great start to your week!
