🔹Wednesday Contemplations🔹 •

As quickly as you can blink, life can take you on an unexpected journey, whether that be good or bad. I’ve had so many knocks that as soon as one bruise goes, another appears- I know right, where’s the violin? But it is true. I do however feel determined to stick to my guns & if intuition tells me something’s wrong or a mistake, it’s usually right. Even if the outcome is pretty scary or disappointing, we can’t let self-doubt or loathing seep in. We have to try, try again and rise to the ranks we deserve..whether that takes a year or ten. I do not wish to settle in life, nor do I want someone to feel they’re ‘settling’ for me. Good things will come, queen. 💁🏻‍♀️ #newmoon #spiritualpath #lookwithin #valueyourself #gad #youarestrong #htblogger #thegirlgang #mentalhealthblogger #lbloggersuk #bloglovin #ukblogger #30plusblogs
Ohhh, I do miss being surrounded by such beautiful birds and aviation history! 🛫

With June almost here (excuse me, what?) I feel like big changes are emerging and May is already providing forward momentum. Summery influences provide the chance to embrace growth, reduce inhibitions and take charge! Work hard...but have fun 💃🏻

When sunshine rears her head and you get to eat this goodness 😋🤩

On a serious note, as a sufferer of #ibs, I welcome the warmer weather with open arms...combined with some diet changes again, #summersalad aids with my flare-ups. The☀️ also proves to be a motivator in me increasing my exercise outdoors or in. 💪🏼

The other evening I spent a lovely mama & daughter date listening to the wonderful @katiepiper_ 💜 The show was humbling, honest and thought provoking.

Even though my journey of recovery has differed to hers, it was connectable. I survived two brain tumours 13 years ago & my rollercoaster in life still throws me curveballs!

It may not have been the sunniest of Easters but we can still dream of brighter times, yes? I hope everyone has enjoyed a family filled time! 🌕🌼🐤

Being that we are already in April (!), I imagine that some people may fear they are not meeting expectations ? 
Speed is not of the essence here. It's much more important for you to get things done right than to get things done now. So any conflicting energies you may feel, you need to listen hard to your intuition & get going. Leave the bad stuff behind, if any, and think about only creative energy. Get going on projects but a nugget of advice...do it at your own pace. Flowers bloom better with love, kindness and careful dedication! #activeapril serves to feed the soul too!

A punch of attitude brought to you by the magnificent Maleficent!

..not gonna lie, I’ve had a weird couple of weeks; winter is clinging on by its claws & #mercuryretrograde is at play. This feeling of melancholy is quite universal at the moment, but remember that misfortune is always greater to someone else. I try to remind myself of this daily for personal reasons. #maleficent is fearless even at her most vulnerable state- practice patience to keep anxiety at bay 👁

In this cold snap of weather, I’m dreaming of sunnier days, easier times & #mystical realms. I’ve not had much access to technology recently; everything seems to keep going wrong! I’m blaming the previous #lunareclipse for these wrong-doings. Bring on the #newmoon energy! 🌝

Whilst in the depths of Winter, I'm throwing it back to dreamy, autumnal colours in the #arboretum, mixed with an industrial background 🍁❄️🍃 Check out my latest blog post for why being around nature in 2018 will do wonders for your wellbeing & how I'll make more use of the outdoors (Link in bio ⤴️)

Some superb quotes galore from Mr Magorium to get us through January & those #winterblues. The colder weather & post festivities gives us a general sense of ‘what am I doing with my life?!' January can be a challenging time, with so many months/days ahead, anxiety can loom around to niggle at what you have or haven't done; it needn't be: Look back on your past year and see where you can grow or what you can leave..think about tools to use to re-energise 2018 🌼

Lets rise to the occassion of our own lives. I'd like to think we can be the boss. Head to my new blog post for some inspo {link in bio!}

Loving my #bestnine of 2017. It's given me some much needed insight into what truly are some of my fave things 🌓 I plan to bring my ideas of last year into growth for 2018. Resolutions don't necessarily work as they often get broken..but #spiritualgrowth, fitness, mental health & brain tumour awareness, social work & #outdoorfun are going to remain and #prosper, whilst bringing a big dose of self expansion. I am ruled by Jupiter after all... ♐️
