It takes courage to live the life you dream of. Most of the time you have to let go of a lot of things, people, and take big risks to do so. It's all about what matter most to you. I choose to conquer each day as it comes. Set realistic daily goals. Find your passion. Find your path. Don't think or worry about anything else because in the long run if you are setting forth on the journey you dream of, all these things you always worried about not getting or not having will find you when you least expect it. Live in the now. Work hard, don't forget to play too. It's a balance of hard work and self-love. Success doesn't happen over night. The more driven you are to your goals the more fulfilled you will be in life. Create your life. What have you got to loose ??? 📸 @moceanmediahouse
I think this is such a powerful message. Sometimes, as women with busy lives, it’s so easy to feel defeated. There’s so much going on all the time and I know it’s hard to keep your head up, but remember WE decide what becomes of our lives. So get out there and make it happen. And if anyone hasn’t told you today, you’ve got this and you are fantastic! #motivation #girlwashyourface #pickyourselfup #beyourownhero
Y’all...life is freakin’ hard right now. I lost my uncle yesterday. He was my fathers only brother. I haven’t spoken to my dad in over 12 years so this has stirred up so many different emotions. All of this on top of the financial burdens of being pregnant with a job with no maternity leave or benefits...shall I continue?? 😩So many woes 😢 BUT I know that this too shall pass and that my strength is still there, it’s just at a very reserved level right now. Tired yet keeping my head up and moving forward to tomorrow, because it is the beginning of a new day. I can fall into the despair but I refuse to stay there too long. ✨ Sending light and love to all that need it✨ .

When you make that decision to make it about you and your family...Prioroties
It was a really disappointed day today. We lost inte the quarterfinals in mixed doubles and I lost in the first round in singles. Not at all what I was hoping and aiming for. Sport is hard sometimes but I will keep fighting.
Atleast me and Kristian won our doubles today so I will try to play my best tabletennis in the doubles for the rest of the tournament. #pickyourselfup
I recently read about how important punctuation is. Two identical sentences were used as an example to illustrate how the use of a comma changes the meaning of these sentences.
1. A woman, without her, man is nothing
2. A woman without her man, is nothing.
Obviously the first sentence is the correct one 🤔😉 I have sat with many woman, in the midst of divorce and heartache and most of them were affraid of being alone, living alone, parenting alone and walking the road alone but the truth is that a lot of Kingless Queens in history turned kingdoms into great empires!
So today my message to all queens out there is: Adjust your crown and start building at your empire - You don't need a King to complete you! YOU ARE ENOUGH!! YOU ARE YOUR OWN QUEEN! "Your crown has been bought and paid for, so put it on your head and wear it." Dr. M Angelou
You won’t always be motivated but you must build discipline. 🙅🏻♀️
I had weeks where I said; ok I’m going all in, I’m going to the gym 6 times per week, will eat super clean, will get my rest, read and be fucking great. And all of a sudden LIFE HAPPENS and for some reason my plans are interrupted. You know mom stuff, boyfriends/girlfriends stuff, family/work stuff what ever it is. It gets on your way. Has anybody else been there? 🙋🏻♀️ How do you deal with it? Well you don’t. If it’s a fuck boy let him go, if you were betrayed by your best friend; let her go, if your unhappy at your job; let it go, if it’s your family; learn to set boundaries because having the same blood does not mean having to put up with their bs. If it’s your kids; well you can’t let them go, they’re your kids lol 😂 . But I learned that if I’m not ok my son is not ok either. And I don’t want him just to be ok, I want him to be fucking great. So in order for that I’m going to make sure I’m fucking great first. Find your why, find the time, find your fears and tell them to fuck off.

A resting on the floor selfie listening to Hillsong in Afrikaans - thanks for the link family! and some progress on our flooring in the ‘winery’. For anyone out there doubting their ability to do things that you think you can’t, and that others have told you you can’t, I’ve got news for you - YOU CAN! Just do it as best and as slow as you have to, but never say I can’t, but rather ‘I’ll give it a try’ I’m in a wheelchair laying this floor on my own - it’s taking forever, because hubby isn’t here to help, but it WILL get done - one row and a rest in between at a time😁. #wordsofencouragement #yesyoucandoit #pickyourselfup #bedeterminednotdefeated #makeaway #hillsongsfrikaans #iwillworshipandovercome
From my current personal development book: You should never wait to pursue a dream or add value in your life out of fear that you lack the right stuff.
Success and high performance is NOT based on who you are but the habits you cultivate. It’s all based on your habits. Which means success is entirely up to you. You don’t need to be more motivated, more strong, have more time. You just need to create those habits that will get you to your goal.

What Now? This is the question I remember asking my mum after it all ended.
What the hell do I do now? Her response was, for now nothing. You do nothing. You need to get away and clear your head and then we will work it out.
I can't even begin to tell you the thought, emotions and feelings that were running through my brain that day.
Read about my journey through this on my blog now. It's up and ready to go.
Let me know what you think below. Have you been in this place? Are you currently here? I'd love to chat if this speaks to you.

Love Yourself Unconditionally.
I used to look in the mirror and pick myself apart. Listen to others negativity when they'd try to pull me back in life. And actually let their opinions effect me! I'd compare myself to every female that walked by me or even talked to me. Look at myself and ask, why am I not enough?
We get so caught up in what we don't have, that we lose track of what we do have and who we are as a person. Comparisson holds us back more then we will ever know. It is the thief of all joy.
We need to focus less on everyone else and focus more on ourself. If there is something WE are unhappy with, we work on it. Every single day. I strive to be better then the person I was yesterday. Not because someone else has their opinion, but because I truly want to work on it. Just remember that this is YOUR life. God made you the way you are for a reason. I started to realize that I am enough and I'm meant for More! I want to Embrace every part of that and share it with the world!
You have something that no one else has. And that's pretty damn special. You're not meant to be like someone else, you are meant to shine and stay true to yourself. If someone doesn't like it, then they aren't meant to be a part of your life. If someone tries to pull you back, turn your head with a smile and remember that it has nothing to do with you, it's them! SHOW the world who YOU ARE! Go after what makes you happy, and embrace it with everything inside of you! Love yourself every day, and be proud of the person you have become. But even more with the person you're becoming ♡ .

A really great reminder. These last few weeks I’ve been doing an exceptional job of beating myself up. Although I do this at times, I’ve had a harder time than usual picking myself back up. However, God sends me reminders like these that help me in some of my toughest moments. #keepyoureyesonjesus #ilovejesus #pickyourselfup #lookup #onedayatatime
When I look back on memory lane. Dakota was a young baby yes but I wanted to share just how much weight I put on and how I lost in time on my shakes. Ive had my ups and downs with my weight since then because I didn’t focus on it, my health was more important at the time but im feeling soooooo positive in wanting to really work on my weight loss, and continue it and reach my goals. Done Zumba tonight first time in a month. And I felt amazing, bit sweaty but amazing 😂😅 #myjourney #pickyourselfup #loveyourself #behappy #workonthemgoals
Remember: we’re basically houseplants with more complex emotions so don’t forget to get a little fresh air and do some self care ✨🌿
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Are you waiting for something to happen before you start? 🤔
Are you waiting for the energy?
Are you waiting for the right time?
Are you waiting for the motivation to come?
Over the last 4.5 years, I have learned from experience that there will never be a good time to start. If you lack the energy or motivation..... that’s ok.... that’s normal. More times than not you will not have the energy or motivation to do anything.😬
That’s just the truth. But that’s when you just have to start and take that first step. Make yourself do it. And THEN, the energy and the motivation kick in. And every step you take, more energy will come. .
You literally have to pick yourself up off the couch and make things happen. Stop waiting for the right time. It’s not coming! 🛑 .
I promise starting is always going to be the hardest part of your journey. But after that.... things get better. Not to say you won’t have hard time and bad days... because you will. That’s life. 🤷🏼♀️
But take that first step.... and see what kind of magic starts to happen. 👟 .

The struggle your in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow🙌🏻.
Don’t ever let bad days overtake your whole mindset, I know myself how hard it is suffering with mental health problems and feeling tired/demotivated to do things. You have to fight through, exercise is known as an anti-depressant and if you don’t exercise your loosing out on the benefits it does to you?☝🏻
If you don’t look after yourself how do you expect to feel better in yourself? Take that step, push yourself, train your mind to be positive and the rest will follow☺️.
💗Do you see that word we seem to be afraid of? Twice it is in here...FAIL! We will all do it and MANY times! But why fear it? NO MORE! Embrace the fact that there will be failure in your life, but what that means is...you are Doing the things! You are Trying the things! Be proud of that! FAIL FORWARD! Don’t fear it, when it happens RECOGNIZE it, LEARN from it, PICK yourself up, and MOVE on to Better!!! #failure #failforward #nofearinfailing #pickyourselfup #beyourbrave #madeforMORE
Kindness will not kill you. Why dont you try it. See how much you can achieve from just being kind...
Yesterday was not a good day but on reflection there are a lot of people out there with a lot bigger problems than I've got. I am lucky and I know that but everyone is aloud to get down sometimes. But then you pick your self up put a nice dress on and go get em. #pickyourselfup #downdays #topshopdress #stayposative
On paper, I'm losing. In my head I'm counting my gains... Everything truly starts with your personal perception. The ship very well may be sinking and chaos is all around yet if you perceive calmness the situation isn't as drastic anymore.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Compared to other lifts such as the deadlift, the overhead press will progress the slowest. Well...Atleast for me. Here is me failing 72.5kg. I'll continue to do whatever it takes to achieve that 80kg.
On a side note, I can't thank you enough @strongestbranch
for cleaning up my clean =).
