What was the moment in your life where you felt most motivated?
What are you holding onto that’s holding you back?
People say life is short. Why do you do so many things you don’t like, and like so many things you don’t do?
What was the moment where you felt most grateful?
What job would you do if you weren’t paid?
OK… well… maybe a few more than a few… but this is my why… – I want to help you. Look at how much I have been ‘helped’ in some way, shape or form in the last seven years?! Like omg! I strive to do EVERYTHING in my power to make this world a better place. I would appreciate your support at my launch event tonight. I have formulated a pretty kickass plan for creating a residual income whilst being a stay at home mum with a disability.
If your free, I would love your support, I am so passionate about this venture that I wanted to share with you what exactly I am doing
It’s all online, it will be brief about 20 minutes, you can tune in from home on your phone or laptop.
We only have minimal spots open for guests so I would truly love to have you be a part of this.
If you ARE interested – please comment on this post. All you will have to do is log into Zoom, which takes like 20 seconds and click on the link I share in the comments later today!
I am so, so blessed that my life has turned out the way it has… perspective is everything!
People ask me all the time – ‘How, how in god’s name do you what you do?!’ – referring to me being a zoo keeper, CEO of our house, building an empire and everything else that comes with it.
I’m not trying to make people feel like crap… that’s the last thing I want to do! I’m trying to show the world that ‘anything’s possible! – but you have to be hungry, like really hungry, starving to want to take control and change your life.’
This is how I have rebuilt myself. Well – that and the attitude – Ready… Fire… Aim that I have adopted… Every second of my day is planned out. My days start anywhere from 4-6am depending on my time schedule for the day. I have become very disciplined with listening to my body so throughout the day, if I loose concentration etc. I will get up, go do another load of washing, stretch, make a potent cup of coffee, go for a run… Something that will help me to completely refocus – and then I return to doing what I’m doing.
Not every mother can achieve this – AND THAT’S 150% OK! Not every mother has been through a traumatic life event such as myself – essentially that is what has given me this new perspective… this want for a better life, the ‘I’m larger than life… NOT bulletproof’ attitude.
That stick sticking out of my ass is getting longer everyday… But hey – I put it there. It’s 100% OK because I’m the most real… authentic… most down to earth bird you will ever meet and I own every behavior that feeds out of my being… Even the shit ones… You may not agree with me, and that is also OK… It is a million % OK for people to have a difference of opinion. It doesn’t have to be – “oh they lied” or “That’s not what happened” – no 2 eyes see the same thing and as humans, we as a species do not have the best communication skills…
I’m all about the energy these days! I’ve turned all hippie like… I love my Reiki, massages, being in-touch with my body, etc. It has helped me not overcome my pain – I will always be in pain, the trick I have mastered is being able to not even think about the P word… I have let pain be the driving force behind my purpose.
I wake up in the morning, coffee, exercise (OMG A WEEK AGO I STARTED SEEING DEFINITION OF MY ABS!) then I just let my day pan out how the universe intends it to… and I attack the most critical tasks that need to be completed. I make sure I’m showered with a clean kitchen before my 10pm bed time – I have a very strict sleep schedule. I’m really lucky in the sense that both my boys now sleep through. It’s all good. “This determined young woman has taken on board the hand she has been dealt and made it work.” – Nick Dametto MP
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
It was back in 2015 that I actively decided that – “That’s it, get up out of bed and stop being a little bitch!” It was at that moment that I came alive again. I started chipping away at self-development, spiritual development and started a bit of self- education.
After finally moving home back to Ingham (which felt like at least five years – My time perception is really bad now #ptsd) I realized how depressed I was. Being the sort of person I am – I was not going roll over and die, I was going re-create a person I was happy to live with for the rest of my life.
I have had to completely rebuild myself, my life. You see – at 21 I had a horrific quad bike accident that left me with a traumatic brain injury and a severe brachial plexus injury which means my right arm barely functions. I’m working so hard everyday to make it work again. I’m getting movement back slowly – my arm was fused, but in future, who knows what medical technology will bring. I know it will work again, maybe just not as good as my left.
I’m riding the education train, trying my hardest to make life easier for my family. I have purpose in my life now – raising my boys and trying to build an empire… It helps that my impulse is currently out of this world and my head is as hard as stone… really… I took on a tree and I won.
“See me, I’m still standing, I may be bleeding, but I’m still breathing” – is a line out of one of my favourite songs back in my high school days…
I can not believe how much you can change your body in a matter of weeks. Since the above size 12 photo was taken (first weekend of March), I’ve dropped heaps more fat and have toned up pretty decent. It took me until the start of March to be comfortable in my own skin, I can finally look at myself naked in the mirror and not scream and run away. OK – it wasn’t exactly that bad… but you get it, right?
One of my friends from high school owns a coffee shop (which makes me really happy because coffee is life!) And I made the comment the other day that if you think about it – this is me being an adult for the first time… at 28, I’m finally an adult. Before my accident, I was still trying to find myself and wasn’t going about it the right way.
I guess what I’m getting at is we all need to have a little more trust in ourselves and a lot less self-doubt, because at the end of the day I feel, that is what separates those who are successful and those who are not.
Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart.
