We are our most beautiful when we meet life with a wide open heart. Yes this is inviting more pain into our life but don't discount the amount of love and acceptance you will also gain by choosing to live this way. Intimacy can only live where there is raw real and vulnerable connection. If we close the door on this of course we will feel alone and abandoned. Abandonment is something I am all too familiar with. My dad left right before my 16th birthday. He was an alcoholic and not a present loving Father. We spoke a little in the first year or so after he left but at the time our relationship was incredibly fragile and damaged and he just gave up really we both did. He was gone from my life completely. Tough as a young woman to know how any man could love me and stay when my father couldn't even stay. The man who is designed to protect his children and family chose to leave, why would anyone else stay. This is something I have struggled with throughout my life. I have learned my incredibly high value, what to accept and what to walk away from. Ive learned to always love myself first. I've learned how true love feels and I've had men in my life who have had my back and some that have not and none of their choices have ever affected my value or self love. Being open, like really open is hard and sometimes so painful but you will never know what it feels like to truly connect if you don't open your heart even when it hurts. Give it a chance. With so much love 💕 ap

Feeling pretty low this evening after having a really positive last couple of days...sometimes it can be difficult to be positive...especially when facing so many difficult challenges...but it's ok not to be ok all the time...we are only human & not everyday is going to be perfect or how we expect it to be...just know that tomorrow is another day...another chance & another opportunity to be the best version of yourself...to learn to accept & love yourself for who you are...to be grateful for all the things in life that you cherish...to be thankful for all those precious moments...for all the love & support of the ones who care...to rediscover your passions...follow your dreams & pursue your ambitions...to make friends...meet new people...to laugh...to live... 💫
Forget the troubles of today & look forward to the opportunity of tomorrow...never give up hope because one day it will get better...you will find your place in life & you will be happy again...💛
After much struggle I can confidently say I’m getting one step closer to achieving my dream of competing! The sacrifices I’ve had to make to get to this point is potentially soul destroying to think about but in reality, a blessing In disguise, such as my social life, I don’t drink and if I decide I fancy a few then I’m drunk real quick! I’ve lost friends (unlucky for them) I’ve felt isolation, depression, I’ve trained through blood sweat and tears, I’ve travelled on my own mental roller coaster I’ve been a mother to my 2 daughters, I’ve juggled almost everything I could to fit my gym sessions in! How I see it it is; if you don’t put the hard work in you won’t achieve the results you hoped for! My life has totally changed this year! I’ve been through so much over the past few years and to actually get my body in this shape feels surreal, but by god have I earned it! I’ve put the hours and graft in and I’ve came out with results I never thought my body could achieve after baring 2 children, giving birth, stretch marks, being obese, being a size 16, being bullied, having a double chin, bingo wings, the list goes on! But now I’m a size 8 with a 26” waist I’m happy! For the first time in years since my teens I can say I’m confident about my image and what I stand for! I will forever protect this feeling! Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me through the hard times and good! I love you all dearly 💕💕💕💕 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️

I'm over here preparing my weekly happy mail - so I thought I'd open it up to you guys!
Is there an oil you've been curious about? Or is there some area that you need some extra support in?
We use oils for emotions, immune support, better sleep, teething babies, chemical free cleaning. Just some examples for ya!
Let me know and I'll stick a cute little sample in the mail for you! :) #tryittuesday#oilsforlife
🔹 If you believe in yourself, anything is possible 🔹
A difficult end to my running season has me reflecting on what this sport really means to me. I may have moments of struggle, but running clearly brings me joy. It teaches me that effort + determination= progress.
The progress helps improve my mental and physical strength. I am always a work in progress, and that's okay. Yup, some people doubt me & think I'm weak... I'm far from perfect, but I try my best. The goal should always be to strive to be better than we were yesterday.
So! Just remember: Do what makes you happy. Set goals, believe in yourself, work hard and you'll accomplish amazing things💕. -
