  • LEST WE FORGET. If you’re still looking for a good enough reason to live your life to the fullest potential, to experience your greatest joy and fulfilment... if you’re still unclear that human connection is the biggest opportunity for greatness we have, remember this.
.
Many people gave their lives so that we wouldn’t be imprisoned by hateful beliefs and oppressive categorisation. When we see ourselves as separate from each other, and focus on our differences, when we act through fear, we are the worst of ourselves. It’s a slippery slope.
.
How would you live your today if you really recalled that others gave theirs for your freedom? And if you truly noticed how easy it was for a few powerful people to mobilise ordinary people to murder each other, what consciousness would you bring to your perceptions of others today? In what ways could you cast your conditioned assumptions aside?
.
With gratitude and love, we remember ❤️

  • Good morning! I didn’t get much sleep last night (or for the last month 🙄😵) but I am brimming with energy. Why? .
Strategy morning with my incredible Thrive & Shine 1:1 client @sing_mother_tucker 🤗❤️
.
I absolutely love running groups, there is so much synergy and authentic human connection, it’s gorgeous. Sarah was in the first Thrive group I ran in the summer and  was a huge part of a magical experience we shared✨
.
So why go it alone? This private coaching shizzle is about taking things to the next level with me.
Accountability on, all filters off, unlimited access to me, and therefore to your truth. Not everyone is ready to shine- for most of us, there are plenty of layers to shed first. And even things that dull us, especially things that dull us, can be really hard to release. .
If you think this could be right for you, slide into my DMs and we will arrange to chat. .
For your morning inspo, head over to her feed @sing_mother_tucker and listen in. Nudge yourself to normalise this way of living- visible, unfiltered, raw and powerful, ready to impact the world.

  • 👀 I have always HATED this term, and recently I’ve been unpacking why.
.
First- I wanna say, I know the term is gonna have different meanings for different people.
Second- I have many friends whose businesses and efforts to improve the lives of others include this terminology- I respect them massively, I’ve bought their stuff, shared their stuff, the tools they provide are brilliant.
.
So let’s get to it- what bothers me about the way that this term has become popularised seems to suggest that as long as you can “do” your self care activities, you’re paying enough attention to yourself.
.
It suggests to me that we ought to be content to live episode to episode, dose to dose of self care. Even if in between we are unhappy, lost, disconnected, isolated, trapped, miserable even, counting down the moments until we can escape from our lives into the next opportunity for self care.
.
I get that creating momentary space and nurture for ourselves can be a great starting point. But what I notice is that, in difficult periods of my life, I’ve craved these moments. Since I have reorganised my life in line with my values, and increased sense of self worth, I don’t experience the same desire to punctuate my life in this way. .
Rather than self care (which again, for me, concurs up a sense of CARING ourselves from broken in some way back to coping), I think our aim ought to be authentic living- in line with our values and with a permanent sense of love for ourselves. BEing true to ourselves moment to moment.
.
It’s in our honest communication, our boundaries, our commitment to seeking and accepting support and connection. .
There’s been an interesting conversation over in my Facebook group for mothers in business (link in bio). What do you think?
.
.

  • SHAME. I’m seeing it everywhere I turn at the moment. We all experience it- what makes a difference to our lives is our bounce back, our shame resilience.
.
I see it in my coaching clients, fearful to share their stories or their dreams. I see it in birth, when I meet second time couples who tell me about their first experiences- we take things that happen in our lives and create stories about ourselves- about what those occurrences MAKE US.
.
Shame is when we move from “something happened and IT was bad” to “something happened and so I AM bad”. .
Society tells women- do everything, perfectly, right now, and ps make it look effortless. There’s no wonder we internalise the less positive aspects of our lives, hiding them away where shame can fester.
.
What’s wonderful is when we bring them into the light. When we speak the truths of our experiences out loud, in a safe space, we begin to liberate ourselves. When a kind voice reflects back to us- “I’m sorry that you experienced this, it’s not your fault and it does not define you”, we may begin to believe that our pain is not a tarnish, but an indicator of our staying power.
.
We may eventually, with the right support, be able to recognise our own capacity and courage. We may even begin to liberate others from shame. .
You deserve to shine your light and the world will be brighter for it. If you’re local to me, I can personally recommend @gemmabennett_ and @guidedharmonyuk therapies to support you.
