Being a vet is great. In fact, I love it so much it rarely feels like work. Sometimes it's really hard, sometimes it's happy and sometimes really heartbreaking and I have to do the things nobody else wants to. I see life and death everyday. The highs are high and the lows are low. I feel the same way about being an entrepreneur. It's a hard gig - I never know if an idea will work and yes, I work 7 days a week. I've survived it all - from vet school, to gruelling hours, having no money for a sandwich, having nowhere to live, my Dad dying when I needed him most and starting a business from nothing. I now have two businesses - both that make the world a better place and I wake up everyday blessed to be doing exactly what I always wanted. I get emails each week asking how I've done it and my answer is this: You have to have faith in yourself and your decisions - nobody else will. Be brave. Don't worry about failing or looking like an idiot - you will fail and you will look like an idiot so you've got to get over it. Shit will go wrong and people will say no - you will feel like a failure and you have to push through the hard bits and quit listening to negative self talk. Don't let anyone treat you with contempt or disrespect - ever. Walk away. The more you hang around negativity - the more it will seep into your pores. Lastly, just start and don't compare yourself to anyone else. You don't have to have a perfect plan. You just need to put your best foot forward, be the best version of you and start - what's the worst that can happen?
Love is be hard to explain... It's a feeling that we all long for, because it's honestly a basic need, a need for companionship. I honestly don't know how it works but when you get a hold of it you never want to let go of it.
Last night was my self-date night and I treated myself to the movies to see “Paris can wait” by Eleanor Coppola.
Paris can wait might well be my favourite feel-good movie of this summer. It´s about a Hollywood producer's wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France, that reawakens her sense of self and her joie de vivre – which we all need after going through difficult times (like a breakup). Anne (Diane Lane), long married to a success-driven but inattentive movie producer (Alec Baldwin), is at a crossroads in her life and finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a charming French business associate of her husband (Arnaud Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a pleasurable journey of discovery involving mouth-watering meals, delicious wines, and picturesque sights of beautiful Southern France.
I love the concept of self-dating and I always set at least two days per month aside where I date myself. I take care of all my needs and wants and have a fun time with myself.
The more I fill myself up with joy and love, the more I´m able to share it with other people instead of trying to get it on the outside.
What can you do this weekend that makes you happy, that makes you feel alive?
Don't waste away your SINGLE WEEKENDS!!! Do something fun! Develop a new hobby! Learn a new skill! Go out a meet new people! Take a trip!!! Get out of your house and go do something!! #waitingforstratford
When is your next business meeting? If no one else brings up social media strategies, be proactive and open the conversation up yourself. Social media is an important part of modern business marketing that cannot be ignored
I need you to know just a few things.
There’s someone out there for us all.
Hold fast to dreams
And feel that you are destined
for irreplaceable sweetness
As if everything carries it to you
As if that’s why everything exists
For if dreams die
You may come to know this
Each flower you see
Will seem to wither crumple and die
A love that once climbed up to your lips
A fire that once burnt deep within warm hips
and launched desires many lascivious ships
Will languish forgotten
Extinguished in dark pits
But Life is like a broken-winged bird
We sometimes need to fall to be truly free
To learn within loves theatres for the unprepared
For with the rise of the midsummer's nights moon
With the slow march to autumn’s new windows
of futures unknown
If we reach out to relight old fires of old
Remove its ethereal ash
Now dormant and cold
We can sail towards those wondrous isles
And trespass through Loves secretive strongholds
Cling fast to loves deep dreams
For dreams go if suddenly
you forget loves soft touch
As time slowly passes through life
and if you decide to leave and stay lonely
By the roadside cold
Another broken heart with no roots to hold
Never to seek its warm shadows
Never to rise with hearts and roots together
To find newer oceans to swim deep within
Life can sometimes seem like an empty cold field
Frozen and covered in dark snow
Where dreams die
And never really go
But if with each passing second of
each hour or day
If you sense you are predestined
for someone special
If you can live within someone’s charms
and as long as you live within that hope
It will eventually be forever within their arms
Life can sometimes seem like a broken-winged bird
Trying to fly within its many cold theatres of the Lonely and Absurd
Serenaded and chased by emotion’s wild vengeful thunder-birds
But there is still hope to soar above its dark skies
You just have to find someone to treasure to begin to fly
You will find them
Just really look
Open up those bright eyes

Trust & safety is our personal responsibility and is something that is first developed inside of us. As we develop this deep trust in ourselves, we attract other like minded & hearted people who have also learned to develop a healthy relationship with themselves 🤗 Showing up consistently requires emotional space 🚀 #Healthy#Relationships#Love#Trust
Love isn't sticking by someone when it's easiest Love is sticking by someone when it's hardest to Love that person..That doesn't mean being a Fool but if the effort and willingness to Grow is there and both people are fighting to make things work then it's worth it..Many people make other Relationships the standard from the outside looking in not Realizing that every relationship has it's ups and downs..A Relationship is about Balance You will not agree on everything, You will not like everything each other like,You may do things differently sometimes, and of course sometimes you'll think Differently..Your stability and foundation will come from Your submission to Jesus the Christ..A Solid relationship will stand on the word of God of course..Every Great man has a Great woman beside him not behind him..When you disagree that doesn't mean fall back, that doesn't mean run to social media, that doesn't mean broadcast it to the world it means that you have to communicate and understand each other better..When a woman submits to Her husband it isn't a form of slavery or Bondage the Husband is called to love his wife as Christ Love the Church..It's about building each other up and growing with one another..Sometimes There will be mess ups but Ultimately the best part is when you can both look back on the things you've overcame together..The Most challenging things in life sometimes make some of the strongest people..we learn can learn what love is by experiencing what love isn't
Transparency is Key
In recent months I've really learnt what it means to follow your heart.. There's a lot of expectations that we can put on ourselves and sometimes we care too much about what others think. For a while, some of the closest ones to me couldn't see my vision the way I did and didn't understand my choices or the direction I was leading myself towards because there weren't any direct external manifestations of my desires. That ultimately put so much pressure on me and I felt so much resistance towards myself and those people, but one thing I've always known is to trust my intuition and honestly now that I've let go, all of this abundance has come into my life that it's actually ridiculous.
Moral of the story - f*ck what anyone else says or thinks!
