It’s easy to post the glamorous ones....it takes guts to show your bare self dripping in sweat and vulnerable to the world. But I know how many young girls follow me and it’s important you know all sides of me. I feel most beautiful when my face can express the courage inside me to follow my dreams, to lay it all out there, to be my true and authentic self. Beauty comes from within. I wonder who you like more.....xox Roxy #MySizeRox#bereal#beyou#positivity#fitness#loveyourself
Here I am. No costumes, no makeup, no poses, imperfect & perfect in every way, just an expression of energy in this vessel. We get so caught up in bullshit & forget that life is so short & precious. One day we’re going to leave this body, this place, all these things & all that matters is that you loved hard & shared all the gifts you have inside with others to light up this world up.
We’re here to play, to explore to enjoy. To experience all the pain & joy that being a human involves. Everything is a gift, every moment, even the painful ones. Actually the painful ones, where you feel like absolute rat shit, they’re the most important ones because they’re a catalyst for change! I know that’s a hard thing to hear & accept. Like what? I should be grateful for feeling like I wanna die right now? Believe me I have weeks where I feel depressed as fuck, when I question everything, my very existence. When that happens I slow down & listen. What are my feelings telling me? What do I need? Why do I feel shit? Our feelings our are internal guide. If something feels bad.. move in another direction. If something feels good keep doing it.
Every experience we have good or bad is giving us insight & teaching us lessons so we can go even deeper within ourselves. In fact you can thank every person who was an asshole to you because they’re just task masters.. yes they have a task!! Their task is to reflect something back to you that you need to learn. They are here to help guide you towards being the most authentic expression of yourself. Whether you realize that or not in the moment, the universe is always unfolding as it should, giving you exactly what you need.
So here’s to not taking life too seriously & to remembering that one day it’ll all be gone. Be grateful for all experiences, good or bad. Because that’s all they are, experiences for you to learn, grow & evolve. Have them, process them, learn from them & integrate what you’ve learnt.
With all this in mind I hope that you grab life by the balls, dream big & chase those dreams HARD, keep your heart open even after you’ve had your heart broken, give to others, and remember that you are perfect. I love you ❤️#bereal

As I near the end of my most recent @slice_of_the_pie_ project, " A SONG AND DANCE IN SYDNEY"
I have be honest.
Until 10 minutes before this video I was planning to not perform my song! (The old 'let's not and pretend we did'.)
Truth is I have had so much other stuff going on, I felt under prepared for my performance, I felt 'too broke' to take a night off work and I just wanted to rest and not have to 'achieve'. In short- I wanted to back out!
Then I remembered, "I do this to inspire others to do the same." 💌❤️❤️
So I cried, wiped my tears, said 'ok, I'm in' and gave myself 48 hours to sort my shit out and get my ass on stage.
I chose to make this video, with no make up on, in a moment of raw fear and vulnerability, so that those scrolling through the world of Insta can see that vulnerability exists in everyone.. and it is not a weakness, it is merely a catalyst for growth!
Huge thanks again to the @the_artist_studio and @poledanceacademy for respectively helping me fight my fears and grow into a more creative, more confident, more fearless self!
Lack of communication seems to be a key issue underlying most misunderstandings. How well do you communicate with others?
Here are some examples of good communication:
-setting precise dates and times to meet up with others
-calling/texting when you say you will
-telling others when they have upset you
-explaining your feelings without emotion (wait for anger to pass)
-expecting others to understand your poor attempt at communicating (silent treatment, sarcasm, etc)
-verifying facts and details
If you do not communicate effectively, many people will withdraw from you. No one wants to play guessing games, asking themselves "Is he mad?" "Why is he mad?" etc.
Poor communication shows a lack of respect for others, and it makes you seem irresponsible and undependable. If you value your relationships with others -- whether it is a spouse, friend, co-worker, etc -- acknowledge your shortcomings in regards to communication. Make a conscious effort to communicate effectively. There are plenty of resources online if you need guidance. Good communication skills can really improve many aspects of your life! 😊👍✌️💕
