One thing I have learned over the years as a mummy is to lead with the heart. My beautiful little girl Sophia continues to teach me a TONNE of life skills…she is my Jedi master at how to master this thing called life.
Over the last 4 years of being pregnant and raising my girl this motherhood path has been one heck of a gift to my life. Through all the ups and downs of other things in my life (deaths and divorce) I have found my way to navigate getting back to my centre – my heart!
THIS is what was needed. The heart. The soul. The life and blood of being me.
That lost woman. The woman who was overwhelmed. The woman who was drownig. The woman who felt so alone. The woman who couldn’t do this anymore.
That woman knew enough was enough.
That woman knew it was time to get back to living a life filled with passion, purpose and wholeheartedness.
And this is where my little Jedi master helped me to make a 180…
I have used MANY tools to help me get back to me…but one of the biggest and simplest tools that has helped me on this journey is being a mum.
Nurturing another human, raising my baby, seeing that baby become this beautiful soul… all of this reminds me to be a human.
The pure innocence, fun and energy of a child reminds me to have fun, be free and live life. Like actually L I V E life.
Where did the fun go? I was trapped in my overthinking nonsense. I was spiralling down a path of excuses and stories. Instead of being fun and free like I used to be I was caught in a place of questioning who I was. Moving forward, I am now in a place of love, joy, giddiness, excitement, passion, purpose and feeling free.
I am so grateful to my beautiful gift of Sophia who blesses life with her pure joy for smoothies, kisses and play. When I remember to be a kid, life is so damn amazing. I am on a mission to focus on being that free, fearless, loving person just like my daughter, as that really is the key to living a happy fulfilling life…well I believe so anyway.
If you feel lost, overwhelmed and beaten up with life…
I want you to know you are not alone. You will get through it. You will be on the other side. All you need to do is focus on your heart. What does your heart need in order to be YOU?
Focus on your heart and lead with that vision to get you to where you need to be to live a happy loving purpose driven life.
Another tool that continues to help me feel confident, happy and filled with energy is my workout and nutrition programme. If you need help with your fitness and nutrition, I am running an online bootcamp starting January 6th. Contact for info!
