My head has seriously been spinning as of late. I recently moved apartments and I couldn’t think straight, between boxes everywhere, packing, unpacking, getting my period, familiarising myself with a new area and home, like’s felt chaotic. Not to mention finishing the Beautiful Business Mastermind and starting my Yoga Teacher Training soon, as well as going full time within my own business it’s safe to say I was all over the place, couldn’t figure out my up from down and generally feeling funky.
This showed up in life as a short fuse, complaining about everything, being restless, but not being able to stop and take a break.
I couldn’t shake it.
On the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of attending Sian Pascale‘s Urban Goddess Day Retreat all about the Divine Feminine. To say this women is a moving goddess would be accurate. I recently attended her Winter Solstice Yoga Practice that left me feeling so aligned and clear within my own body that I knew I wanted to attend more of her events.
Lesson number one, get out there and connect with people who are doing cool epic shit that you want to be apart of.
As of late I’ve been really called to dive deeper into these goddess archetypes. A couple of days before the divine feminine workshop I attended Julie Parker‘s first Sacred Sister Circle all about the Great Mother, mother earth. At this sacred circle Julie spoke that from the Great Mother Goddess all other goddesses were born from and so I knew it was fitting to learn and speak of my connection with her first.
On Sunday 18th June I had the absolute pleasure of gracing the stage with my fellow mastermind girls to share our message at the annual Inspired Women’s Showcase. I don’t know if you can tell by my beaming face but it was an absolute joy and I loved every single moment.
I’m so excited to dive a bit deeper into the day, what I got from this experience and share a very exciting announcement at the end as well. (more…)
I am wrapping up sessions with clients this week and getting ready to take some time off my business over the Festive Season and New Year. If you want to find me, I will be yoga-ing non-stop, out on the ocean soaking up the sun (if Melbourne gets around to turning it on for us) and surrounding myself with great food and even better company.
It of course is only fitting with this being my last post of the year to do a wrap up of my 2016, because ahh life, we like it in a neat little bow at times, especially when a year has been tumultuous it helps to feel at peace and send the year off in style.
I am writing this not knowing where I am going – perhaps it will reveal itself as I write more, or this could be a super fun journey – let’s dive into it together.
Have you ever been in the situation where you are working towards a big goal, and have lots on your plate? You might even think that you are too busy to take care of yourself.
So your self-care starts to drop, because that voice in your head says “you don’t have time to do yoga today” and so you listen to it. You skip yoga, end up messing and fluffing around for a couple of hours, feeling guilty that you didn’t go to yoga, feel guilty that you have SO much work to do and you haven’t touched anything.
Finally in a couple of hours you are stressed because you didn’t relax with yoga, stressed because you didn’t get all the work you wanted to done and feeling pretty yuk. In today’s post I am going to be sharing with you how you can work on getting unbusy, how keeping your self-care is imperative.
