Every night before falling asleep reflect back on your day, notice what went well and what didn't happen as you had wished.
This reflection time helps you see your patterns, what works and what doesn't, and this is your opportunity to choose different behaviors, and take new actions the next day impacting your life.
Just because something worked in the past doesn't mean it's the choice you need in this present moment. Use the teachings from your experiences my loves to choose the actions that take you to the happiness and success you desire. ❤️
I’m not really going for wallpaper in @theugliesthouseintheworld as I find one goes off it far too quickly. But the downstairs loo is going to be really big. Big enough to have proper furniture in it such as a large chest of drawers and my most prized possession.... a beautiful tiled table made by my grandpa with the most charming tiles he found for my granny in Sweden in the 30s. I want to use a floral wallpaper in this room to reinforce the print on the tiles and I think this one could be perfect. But inevitably I can’t find out where it is from. It’s very similar to others around but much more beautiful. Can you tell that I have extractors and radiators and doors and floors and worktops and all the rest to source? So of course I am scrolling through flowery wallpapers #priorities#ornot#wherecanibuythis#wallpaper#downstairsloo#houserenovation#shouldbeattheplumbersmerchants
Only when I stopped to truly ‘feel’ myself, did I discover what I was meant to do. It is so easy to get caught up in the minutia of what we think we must do and how we should get through the day that true inspirational reveals get missed. I often ‘receive’ ideas and even poems while I’m in the middle of a work day. At first I would refuse them, telling myself I ‘must’ do this or that at that time. But finally I said yes to the discomfort and unease that listening to my inner voice was causing me - and even the guilt, and just sat down and took a moment to capture whatever was pushing its way into my creative mind. And prioritized writing it as it came. And found that the world was still spinning when I was done. Giving myself the permission to prioritize what is essential to my being changed everything for me. It was a big shift towards living my truth. So I ask- check list or priority list? #selfloveselfcsrefirst#selflove#priorities#flow#truth#checklist
Tuesday motivation is well and truly needed today🤯
I have used yesterday and today as my rest days in order to get on with uni work but I’m feeling very overwhelmed at the moment. Final year is a massive step up from the previous two years of uni and I am finding it quite challenging.‼️I just need to remember to stay focused and positive!
REALLY looking forward to getting back into the gym tomorrow- I miss training when I take my rest days: @shreddy you have well and truly changed my outlook on fitness💓🥳
Time is a precious resource and to make the most of it we can talk obsessively about what we want to be doing with our time
We write to do lists, make plans, set goals
We hunt for the elusive work life balance by trying to do MORE
One thing that is absolutely critical to enabling you to have the time and space to get on with all of the things that you want to be doing is to do LESS. You need to stop doing other (unimportant and low yield) things to make way for what truly is important
I’m guilty of writing long to do lists and only ever making it to number 3 or 4
This week I am solo parenting and I’ve challenged myself to put into practice one of the bits of advice I harp on about, and that is to identify the tasks that are holding me back from meaningful progress and write a stop doing list
✋🏼stop browsing social media for more than 10 minutes without a specific purpose
✋🏼stop procrastinating by starting new WhatsApp conversations
✋🏼stop planning Christmas presents (it’s still waaaaaaay too soon)
Try to be specific with what you need to stop doing so that you can catch yourself out if you start slipping into bad habits

So, today was spent packing my most special and valuable items from my home into 2 cars ( well, one is a van... and fits more ) .... it was an emotional and interesting process. Although you actually don’t need 90% of the items and collectables accumulated over 25 years, it is still difficult to know what to leave. Every “thing” you accumulate over the years holds a memory, which is why it is proudly displayed on your shelf. It takes you back to that moment in time. Moments that make up your life.
So, walking through the house today and of course packing the obvious photo albums and jewellery was a major test for me. It was like a priority exam! But the job got done and I walked out the door and felt so fortunate that I actually had the time to make these decisions.
Fires are all over the state right now and many people have lost their homes and have not had the time to gather their special possessions. Be safe everyone who is affected by the fires tonight and over the next days.
Events like this really do make you realise what is most important. #bushfires#priorities#smokeysky#federal#community#decisions#besafe#precautions
Die CrossFit Open sind vorbei und ich muss euch sagen dieses Jahr haben sie sich für mich wie eine 100kg schwere KB angefühlt die ich mit mir herum schleppe!
Mein Focus lag nicht zu 100% auf den Open denn für mich stand gerade die Uni an erster Stelle ! Neben 20.1 und 20.2 habe ich mich auf meine Mündliche Prüfung in der Uni vorbereitet, wobei mir oft das Herz geblutet hat, weil ich unglaublich gerne die Workouts mit kompletten Focus gemacht hätte aber es einfach nicht funktioniert hat! Mental war ich nicht in der Lage mich zu pushen und so hart wie sonst an meine Grenzen zu gehen! Ich musste mir immer wieder selbst sagen:“ Uni ist wichtiger, trainieren kannst du danach immer noch! „
Nach meiner bestandenen Prüfung 😌💪🏼 ging es weiter und ich konnte das Training auch wieder genießen konnte die Workouts danach auch mit einem ganz anderen Mindset angehen!
Und jetzt, sind 5 Wochen rum und es ist schon wieder alles vorbei! 🙆🏼♀️ Verrückt!
Auch wenn die Open immer mit viel Aufregung und etwas Stress verbunden sind, freut man sich dann doch auf die kommenden Open 2020 🚀
Mit etwas mehr Vorbereitungen und anderem mindset! 😉
Jetzt wird erstmal Urlaub gemacht und an den Gymnastics gearbeitet!
COMPARISON IS THE THIEF OF JOY. I was sat this morning just scrollin’ through my Instagram and found myself obsessing, page after page of these #instamodels flaunting their unattainable physiques, wearing what can only be described as something that resembles dental floss...with slightly less coverage - I tilt my head, squint and zoom as I try to work out where they hid their vagina for the shoot. I come to the only reasonable conclusion and that is, they’ve somehow mastered the ole male #tuckback only with the female anatomy. I attempt this trick myself to no avail and decide that’s probably the least of my concerns, so I get to work on this bod instead - there’s plenty of time to practice the #flaptuckback later. First things first, I have to select my active wear and not to brag but I have not one but TWO k-mart sets to choose from 💁🏼♀️ #ballin ’ after much deliberation I go with the one that isn’t in the washing machine. I race around and finish dressing and feeding the soul suckers before loudly announcing I will be spending the next 20mins exercising they look at me with perplexed facial expressions as I roll out my yoga mat. “This is it guys” I proudly proclaim, we don’t have to live like this anymore #instamodel mum to the rescue. I manage a 2min plank, with 3 children climbing on and off me and decide to call it a day. Comparison is the thief of joy I tell myself.... and I find joy in delicious meals, so we rolled up the yoga mat, I laughed at myself for wasting my time comparing to these vaginaless, 20year olds and we headed out the door for breakfast #2 instead 👌🏼 #priorities
This ethereal light, hues of color, these moments of fluid time. Full moon at sunset. Giving your treasure of time to others is a deep gift. One you can never replace. “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 .
White isnt pale
Black isnt dark
White isnt clean
Black isnt dirty
White isnt serene
Black isnt disturbing
Everything isnt what it seems like
Cmon! Believe me Mike
Deciding and sticking to what you think
isnt going to help,
When people do not live up to your expectations, hearts melt.
Life is a flow of memories, love & hate
Enjoy yours before its too late
Do not sleep with anger,
It causes weight loss and makes your clothes look like theyre hung on a hanger!
Ive heard people do not pluck the flowers they love, they water it, so it grows.
Dont end your relationship with someone you love, water it, so it grows.
Everything isnt what it seems like
Cmon believe me Mike! #write#love#writing#poetry#deservebetter#priorities#writersofinstagram#writingcommunity#writer#writerslife#writersofig#poems#poemporn#poemsofinstagram

#Visual#drama and #emotion matter to people. #Style matters. #Subtlety and #finesse matter. A #realistic man knows how things work. Ultimately people respond to things because of their #ego , their # survival #instinct , their #fears , their #anxieties , their #goals , their #priorities . their #ambitions , their #resources , their #values , and their #self -image. The #glow of #achievements are #esthetics all by themselves. Not all #bathtubs are created equally... nor are all people treated equally, nor do all people respond the same way to the same situation. People are different: People #think differently. People act differently. People respond differently. #Gary#Smolker , Social Commentator, Values Critic, Trial Lawyer with a passion for reason and justice and a sense of humor. In the book “Uncommon Law”, the British writer and politician A.P. Herbert, tells us, “The Common Law of England has been laboriously built about a mystical figure - the figure of ‘The Reasonable Man.’”

"Hazza, turn around and look sexy!"....because of my limited photography skills, the result of 4 days exploring Lake Garda is a handful of shaky videos and a few snaps from our homoerotic photoshoot on a family beach....probably the perfect summary of our holiday then really!
As we drank in such a classy, dignified manner, I've also managed to preserve some pretty amazing memories so...non c'è male!
