Where the hell have all you lot been?! Shit, it’s me this time isn’t it – not you… I know, I’ve been gone ages right! So anyway, how have you all been? and mores the point, what have you been up to?
Me, I’ve taken some time out to think through this blogging malarkey… wondering what I want to share and how much should I “put out” there. It’s freaking hard you know, particularly as I’m no wordsmith and struggle with dyslexia. Yes, even that was hard to spell – thank f@ck for autocorrect!!!
At the start, I was just sharing the journey I was on to change up my lifestyle and trying to feel better, whatever that looks like… But somehow, along the way, I stopped being me and started writing for an audience (you lot!) in a way I thought I should write. I began to filter out what is the real “me”, be it my opinions or my stupid sense of humor, sometimes censoring my writing beyond recognition… I now realize that it takes real balls to write freely, so I’ve decided that instead of fearing it… questioning things, the setbacks, the false starts and thinking that I’d never get freaking started, I just need to start…
So, here goes… not wrapped up in theory or censored, my idea, my dream – in the raw – with no apologies, explanations or having to justify myself in any which way!
My idea is just this…
Over the last few months alongside continuing my I Quit Sugar journey, I’ve loved dipping into Hollie Azzopardi 7 days to Self Love , Jess Silsby Chaos to Control, 30 Day Exercise Challenges, Yoga, Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Mapping and #truthbombs, Shining my butt off with Leonie Dawson, Meditation, (yes, you may just want to take a deep breath now) researching Wellness, Life Coaching and Counseling courses, reading books, listening to podcasts, doing webinars (yeah, that one freaked me out!) … and what I’ve come to realize is that there are MASSES of resources out there, unbelievably incredible resources… some free even. So, to head up blog posts on “wellness” there is undoubtedly going to be a huge wealth to tap into! … and I’m thinking does “incredible” actually need to be re-written … hell freaking no (not in my opinion)
Now, despite all this incredible information (yes, I said it again) I can’t help feeling the problem most people have with it, is how we actually engage with and make use of it all… in truth this all takes real motivation! Honestly of late, my motivation has had me swinging, spun me off the roundabout and yes, I’ve ended up in a heap on the floor crying at times, but for me this is what it’s all about. The cuts, the bruises, the ups and downs, the pure exhilaration! I suppose it’s the how, the what, where and why we engage with these resources… and it is this that I ultimately want to share with you all, to give, genuinely from the heart.
Recently while re-reading Elizabeth Gilberts Big Magic, I realised and recognized that I’ve had an idea banging away at me for some time and that it’s now time to stop freaking ignoring it and have the balls to get it out there! I suppose because the idea is so simple, very basic in concept, I just kept overlooking it, my familiarity maybe breading some contempt, right here, right now!
Right, I’m stalling , procrastinating even, lets get to it! … (that’s nerves right there!)
Right, the big, little idea is that… our game plan or as like I like to call it our “A-Game” is simply something that keeps us #well! Now this “A-Game” – hell lets just read your “A-Game” – have you ever really taken time to reflect what it’s like? Your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviors – when your well as opposed to unwell. Do you even know what keeps you that way, or how you can up your game?! Have you ever asked those close to you what they see in you when you’re well, or unwell?!… because I’d sure as hell bet they always tell you, maybe want to comfort you or even just get frustrated with you, when you don’t do what they feel needs to be done?! That’s real life right there, huh?!
Can you imagine what it would feel like to know your “A-Game” – tell me, scary… empowering… a waste of time? … just how simple do you think it would be to put it together? … to do something that helps you really know yourself, your team and what you need to do … I suppose what I’m saying is have set of “go to” resources that’s individually designed and specific to you! Just how empowering might that be?!
So, my question is, “are you interested, with me, and would you like to see one put together?!”
Lots of love and wellness
