Letting you in on the behind-the-scenes-rollercoaster of running a small business:

Downside: learning that, even though I'd be a great person to be interviewed, that I'm 4,500 subscribers short on a mailing list to be considered for the interview series :( Upside: 'metric-sadness' crushed by receiving an amazingly kind review from a coaching client 😍

Upside: hearing that a favourite brand (@goodbuzznz Kombucha) wants to kindly SPONSOR the @intentionalgenerations Launch Event happening next Monday!! OH MY GOODNESS YAY! :) Learning: the external validation of how many followers I have on Instagram, Facebook or in a mailing list don't really matter at the end of the day... What matters are the results that clients get... what matters are the smiles on the people around me... what matters is the positive impact happening everyday. As a friend said today "keep up the good fight!" Does this resonate?

These last couple of months have been absolutely horrendous for my mental health. It started out with the stress of finals last semester and unfortunately has carried on throughout January and February (with a few ups, of course). I haven’t had a period of darkness last this long in many years and to be honest, I’m terrified. I have had extremely dark and alarming thoughts that I haven’t had to deal with since maybe 2014... At the beginning of this week, my chest began to feel very tight, my lower ribs began to really hurt every time I breathed, and I’ve had a pounding headache for several days now. After doing a bit of research about it, I believe my depression is manifesting in severe physical symptoms. Apparently when an individual is experiencing prolonged symptoms of depression, physical symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, and headaches can occur (the more you know💫)... I’ve been trying to keep myself busy and I have been taking the time to reflect on my mood and my thoughts. This has helped a lot, especially on the really difficult days. There are some days I wake up and feel fantastic, but those days usually end in a bitter defeat to my depressive thoughts.
I don’t know when this will end, but I made a promise to myself to fight through because there’s got to be something valuable that will come from this. I know all things take time to heal, it’s just extremely frustrating having to deal with something over and over again. However, I have fought for this long and I know I can continue. I just need to keep myself grounded and keep moving forward.

A little bottle baby time brightens every day.

Calving is such an emotional roller coaster. One minute you're celebrating a calf saved from near death the next you're faced with a loss. .
They say you can't save them all. But, damn it I'm going to try!

🐊 I was recently reminded of Akhilandeshwari, whose name alone is a powerful lesson. Years ago, I’d read about the tradition of translating her name as “never-not broken” - an intentional double-negative to emphasize that she is simultaneously broken and whole, perfectly imperfect. Like a jewel with many faces, each “fracture” isn’t a weakness, but another facet that refracts light and creates radiance from within. 🌈💎✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s the human condition to be “never not-broken” in this way. Sometimes we’re better at holding the pieces together than others. And it’s never fun to experience a “break.” But our character and perspective are informed by these experiences, and they become the things that make us uniquely us. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This isn’t to say that suffering should be celebrated or that it shouldn’t hurt. But it does remind us that suffering is going to happen to all of us. Life has its ups and downs, and nobody is excused from this rollercoaster. Remembering that we’re all “never not-broken” - and that the whole world is in this state, too - unpacks a whole new layer of compassion for ourselves and others. 💞⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It seemed very appropriate to put this little Akiladeshwari charm I’d made years ago onto this never-not-broken rose quartz wrap. 🙈 It’s a favorite of mine, and the charm’s a nice reminder of this story. Maybe one day I’ll get that link closed right...! ⁣⁣

See you on the mat this week @prospectheightsyoga - classes and times are in my “🧘🏻‍♀️Schedule” highlight⁣

Smiling and positive thinking have huge benefits on our body and mind! Positive thinking doesn’t come easy though, right? Through yoga practice, books, happy songs or good talks with friends, when life gets tough I like to go back to what helped me feel grounded and positive to feel good again.There are many ways to train our brain to think positive... How do you stay positive?

“Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common and we do learn things from each other's experience. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.”

📍Coron, Philippines

Traveling is like a swing, it has its ups and downs!
.
We went to Palawan in August which is the start of the rainy season. And sure enough...it rained 😅 We were on a boat in the middle of an island hopping tour when it started pouring rain. It was a scary boat ride, all our stuff was getting wet, and we feared that our tour would come to an end. Rather than moping around we decided to jump into the sea which was nice and warm in comparison to being in the boat. Fortunately the rain didn’t last too long! Soon enough the sun was back out again and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day!
.
So when in doubt, just hold on tight and enjoy the ride because everything will be alright 😜

Every part on a #set has a purpose. From the actors and there crucial roles, all the way to the crew helping clean the location, everyone has a meaning to being there.

Even in the ups and downs of it all, the stress and the fun, I saw every person pull together when needed to make something work. It was all hands on deck, and I'm proud of the great cast and crew who pulled it together.

Life is a journey filled with highs and lows. Although we naturally want to avoid the lows and struggles, they are necessary for growth. Keep moving forward and learn from every encounter along the way. You’ve got this! 💕 .

"Everything ebbs and flows. Work feels exciting and then gets routine. Relationships feel easy and then get challenging. Life feels limitless and then gets restricted. No one finds the sweet spot where everything seems perfect and then stays there till the day they die. We all have ups and downs in life, and that doesn't mean we’re doing anything wrong. We just need to ride the highs, accept the lows, and do our best to learn from it all so we can make the best choices for ourselves in each moment, no matter what phase we’re in." ~Lori Deschene⠀

Four years ago I was, like many other students, working in industry (that's nightclubs bars etc). I peddled photo keyrings to #drunken #punters (#puntersarepeopletoo) to help support my young family. The #work had its #upsanddowns but was a #brilliant road to #photographyskills #improvement. The #light is always #changing and if you don't get good enough photos you don't take the #cash at the end. #simple.

Life is full of ups and downs, challenges, changes, a bad mood, sickness, family issues, relationship hurdles or burdens. Sometimes you just gotta be a little kinder to yourself and understand that although you don't always get it right, always remember you rock!!! #love #relationships #hurdles #burdens #yourock #family #couples #coupletherapy #parents #children #upsanddowns #bekind #selfcare #care #kindness #doyourbest

⚠️ Trigger warning ⚠️ but hey- in your life there are ups and downs. Here is a down in mine, but that doesn't mean there will never be an up again. Wasn't sure if I should post this or not, but I find drawing is an outlet for the good and bad. Tip for those having trouble with self harming- draw it, don't do it. Draw on your arms, draw it on paper, it'll help. It helps you get your feelings out without hurting yourself. Anyone can message me if they need to talk, I know I'm a stranger but I want to show you guys it's okay to not be okay 🤗💕 #triggerwarning #love #draw #drawn #draws #drawing #drawings #sketch #sketches #sketchy #sketching #sketchbook #doodle #doodlesketch #doodles #doodlesofinstagram #itsgoingtobeokay #itllbeokay #upsanddowns #time #old #trigger #serious #imhere #imhereforyou #youcandoit #believe #believeinyourself #pencil

One of my favourite questions @timferriss asks on his podcast is a variation of the statement-“tell me about a time that you found yourself seriously struggling, and how you overcame that period of time.”

I love this because it gives an unusual glimpse into the lives of achievers and leaders. Even the best of the best struggle from time to time. The difference is typically how they deal with those struggles.

I am incredibly blessed to have a few acquaintances who shared the fact that they look up to me. I then realized, I might not be publicly talking about my failures and struggles enough. Social media tempts us to highlight our achievements, painting a picture of success and stability. This leads to 99% of us creating unattainable standards that they are trying to live up to.

When people visit Bali, they show a tropical paradise. Amazing food and sunsets. They don’t show the garbage on the beach or the families that are just trying to survive.

Beach body updates. Picturing of traveling the world. New cars, clothes and accessories. These are the highlights, not the whole picture.

I struggle. I have days that I doubt myself. I have ups and downs just like you. You’re not alone and either am I.

The past few weeks have been tough. I’ve had days when I don’t feel like getting out of bed. I’ve felt, while some areas of my life are excelling, others are sliding back. I’ve 100% created my own environment and have no one to blame except myself.

As I look forward toward spring, I realize I need to share the ups and the downs, for myself AND for others. The first month of 2019 has been the most financially successful month of my life. I look forward to building upon that success and finding more balance along the way.

Lots of exciting projects coming up in the near future, including potentially speaking to thousands of amazing souls in LA in March at a @tonyrobbins event 🙌 stay tuned for the good and the bad..the ups and the downs 👊

If you ever need a person to talk to about the positive or the negative, I’m here for you! You’re one decision away from a completely different day, week, month, life! How will you be shifting this spring?💪

Friendships dosnt mean that you have to spend every day together, friendships is based on the love inbetween, the sound of understanding eachother and the commitment to always support. 10 years is in the scriptbook and this friendship will beyond anyone ells, always be the most influential and vurnable of all.

Up is down and down is up. Again and again. Falling down is a part of life. Getting back up is living.

Mums tarragon chicken for dinner tonight!
Had a nice catch up with some old friends this afternoon which was lovely!
Having a day with my mum tomorrow - we are going to go and do a bit of retail therapy and doing the first one of my fear food challenges !! 😁
Having a quiet evening watching dancing on ice and then going to get an early night and watch a movie in bed and do some snack-a-lackin !! 👌🏻 Had a bit of low day in terms of my self-esteem and body image but I know that this is part of recovery - I have to come to terms with that my body is going to change (for the good!!!) but it doesn’t mean everything is going to be smooth sailing - I just need to push through!
Tomorrow is a new day!
I know what I want and that is recovery and if I resort back to old Ed habits that’s just going to make me further away from my goal...FULL RECOVERY!
Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday evening! We got this! 👊🏻💜 #edrecovery #itsnotplainsailing #upsanddowns #stayingstrong #icandothis #recoveringformylife #takingbackcontrol #anaisntwanted #edfighter

If I've learned anything about parenting over the last 2 1/2 years it's that there are real highs... and real lows. And just occasionally you have one of those blissful periods of time when everything just seems... perfect. This weekend has really been one of those extra special ones and when you get it, you just have to soak up every bit. Plus the sunshine has definitely helped! ☀️

Sooo true! Whether in business or personal life everyone has highs and lows... is just the way it is. Just accept it and make sure you never make significant decisions on a bad day!

Having mentored lots of people in my business I come accross challenges every day. But I can promise you those challenges make them stronger.
Surround yourself with people that see the best in you 💪🥰💜 . . .

No this is not made with artificial sweetener... It was reason for my first proper cheat day since I started Keto 88 days ago (xmas not counted)... 😳😱🙈 I know it is not going to be a popular post but I told you Im showing you the naked truth and this is it.. .
It was worth it.
But no doubt to be 100% back on Keto tomorrow. ✌

Well none of these pics are good but I said I'd be honest so this is the reality of my weekend 🤷‍♀️ yes it's not good but since Thursday I seem to have been on a food blender and self destruct. Obviously I didnt eat all the kebab and pizza it was shared with hubby. Tomorrow is Monday and 1st day of 1/2 term so I should be able to actually I WILL do some food prep but it's going to take a couple of weeks and plenty of speed to get rid of the damage I have done. #imhuman #getbackontrack #swuk #slimmingworldjourney #slimmingworld #weightlossjourney (weightgain this week) #upsanddowns #synscount #toomanytocount #iwilldothis #pinchofnomrecipiescomingup #determinationiskey #icandothis💪
