reset

At the beginning of last month a friend and I went and stayed in a shepherd’s huts in Scotland and went off grid for 5 nights. Turning off all internet and connection to the outside world, cooking by fire, living eco friendly and surrounded by the beautiful quiet of nature. It was fucking glorious.

stuck

It’s hard knowing what to do when you’re feeling stuck and stagnant. For some reason it feels harder to do the things you normally do that help switch things.

circle

“a dream is never alive within you, without the means to achieve it also being alive within you” – Kirsty Gallagher

creation

it doesn’t matter where we are; whether we’re in Bali or York – we can start creating the life that we desire. I wanted connection and community, and I’m building it. We are worthy of giving ourselves the time to think about what we want. And how we can start creating it.

here

Oh hello. I haven’t posted on here in such a long time. I’ve wanted to. On so many occasions. But I’ve always held myself back. Not anymore.

strength

i often try to write my dreams down to see if I can find the meaning within them. But this one felt pretty clear.

doing

start those projects, sign up to that course, and just start doing. 

choose

what happens when I put pen to paper and choose to love myself fully

expectations

having no expectations on life or people, although may sound bleak, I think, is a pretty positive way to live your life

uni

last week I got accepted into university

achievement

even if you think you don’t have an ounce of ‘talent’, don’t let that hold you back

beauty

“Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own”⠀

back

it’s been a pretty long time since I’ve posted anything, but I’m back.  

love

The most important person in the world you should love, is yourself. That’s where it all starts, and that’s where your love for others begins. Learn to love yourself unconditionally, unequivocally, wholeheartedly and passionately. Fill yourself up with so much love, that it pours out of you. Love yourself so much that you have so…

journey

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” – Greg Anderson

accountability

We need to take accountability for ourselves, for our feelings, for our journey. No one else is in control.

burnout

Can’t really say it’s something that’s suddenly crept up on me.. I’ve been joking about being close to burnout for a while, not taking it too seriously even though I knew I should have.

qigong

I’ve probably already told you about the amazingness that is Peter and Qigong, but right now, I am MEGA excited.

reaction

So seriously guys, how do I go about changing these crappy reactions into constructive ones?

truth

Live your truth. In all areas of your life. It’s a beautiful and empowering thing.

seasons

Some people love that we have seasons. I, however, am less keen.

power

“Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt

student

Since arriving back in the UK nearly 6 weeks ago, a lot has happened, a lot of unexpected stuff.

patterns

The same patterns will keep arising. Again and again. Until we face it. 

fear

We can be so scared of failing, being rejected, making sure we don’t put ourselves out there in case we get hurt, that we end up making things worse for ourselves.

open

The last few months have been tough, and it’s time to open myself up again.

pages

Like talking to a friend or therapist, I’ve resolved problems I’ve not known how to deal with, I’ve uncovered issue’s I didn’t know were there.

mindfulness

Mindfulness is the “nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment”, and it’s something I practice daily.

bedtime lists

Small bed time actions, making big life time impacts.

first thing

What’s the first thing you should do every morning?

feasting

So I thought I would share something else that happened in my life that really shifted my perception and relationships with food. November 2015 I was staying at Kopan Monastery in Nepal

health

Obviously you’re aware I’m passionate about health and wellness, mind, body and soul. So I thought I would share my journey with you all, and what I do on a day to day basis. And what better place to start than from the beginning.

reach

You don’t have to deal with this shit on your own, there’s a whole world full of people who’s got your back.

25

Want a new gratitude practice, here it is. Do it. You’ll be grateful for it.

gifts

If you like giving gifts, you should accept them too.

reflection

I want you to take out 10 minutes of your Friday right now to sit down and reflect on what you’re grateful for.

lost

“Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves”

gratitude

Something we all need to practise more of . So I’m going to share a little life hack handed down to me by my amazing mum.

plastic

Our planet is in desperate need of our help, please make small changes to make a big difference ❤

changes

Well 2017 was full of surprises. And it turns out 2018 has a bunch more in store..

own it

So yea I’m posting a picture of myself in a ridiculous bikini, but screw it, I like it, and I like me.

rides

It’s ok to think FUCK IT and have a cry in your underpants eating a burrito.

enough

i have enough. i do enough. i am enough

unicorns

When you find yourself a unicorn, don’t try to keep their magic for yourself. They’re too special not to be shared with the world.

live it

I can be awful at falling off wagons, I’m pretty clumsy, I seem to do it a lot. So this is a reminder for me.

inspired

I feel incredibly lucky right now. It’s an amazing thing to be surrounded by such passionate and inspiring people, all of time. Everyone I have worked with and lived with for the past 10 weeks has dedicated their life to being more compassionate to the world.   Recently I’ve worked in an office filled with people…

in the end

As you probably know by now, Chester Bennington from Linkin Park sadly committed suicide last Thursday. This sparked something in me, and I wanted to share my own personal experiences.

city life

City life is difficult. And it’s easy at the same time. I’ve been living in Manila for 8 weeks now, here’s how I’m coping..

connections

People will come in and out of your life for a reason, and I thank all of them. Even the shitty ones.

nuts

What do vegans eat? Friggin everything. And stuffing my face with incredible cheese knowing there was no horrific cruelty involved, well, that makes it taste that even better.

trust

Trust in your intuition. When it speaks to you, take action.

hair

What started as an experiment (of lazy origins) has turned into an act of rebellion, against myself.

nature

I wanted to be in nature. Desperately needed to be surrounded my fields, forests, jungle, mountains. My soul knew I needed that connection so I finally listened to it, and headed to Cebu looking for the green stuff.

beached out

Never thought I could ever actually be beached out. But I am. Here’s some rambles about my time on Palawan.

sober

Has our culture of drinking, drowned our ability to interact normally without our trusty faithful friend, beer?

eats

If you’re not interested in food. Look away now, in shame.

exploring Ubud

As you might have guessed I love Ubud. It’s a hard place to leave. And even when you do, as I realised, you just come back.. so what sights DID I see?

cleanse

From baths filled with petals all the way to colonics. I’m doing it all.

giving

Well, they do say that the key to happiness is giving.

just hug

As you may have heard, there was an earthquake south of Bali yesterday. And it really shook me up.

routine

Not been here long and already have a little routine in play..

splitter

Well I’m off again. And this time for good.
