  • Yesterday I saw my husband, and hundreds of others- young, old, fit as a fiddle, terminally ill, optimally kitted out and in fancy dress- run a marathon.
.
I stood cheering my head off, enchanted by the achievement despite being weighed down by an enormous toddler in the pouring rain. The inspiration was thick in the air, and the rain couldn’t wash that magic away.
.
This morning, my lovely friend Gemma @theseashack called me out when I told her, “I couldn’t even run a mile”. More than that, she told me even though she’s run 6 miles up to now, she knows she COULD take on the big M. .
She owned her potential, claimed her power, and stopped me in my limiting tracks like ✨❤️💫🙌🏻🤩👏🏻 because who are we to say what we could not do before we’ve tried? To deny the possibilities available to us, and box ourselves into our existing experience is a waste of our potential- a trap that I wouldn’t fall into for my biz, and yet there I was re my physical capacity.
.
It’s ok if I never run a marathon- it’s ok if I never even try, because it’s not important to me, and it may not be to you. But what IS important to you?
In what ways would it serve you to challenge your beliefs about what’s possible for you? Where do you wish you could dare to dream? .
An empowered birth, a positive experience of mothering, a thriving business that reflects your purpose, fulfilling friendships, free use of your voice... whatever it is, notice that it starts with you believing it’s available to you. Until then, you could never do that. You’ve simply got to change your mind to begin... 💕💪🏻💫
.

  • This is me having a good think. Love a good think. Sometimes, despite all the energy I devote to my personal growth, I find myself fricking weary.
.
Weary of the resistance to change, or acknowledgement, weary of the ego driven responses to the big problems, and the resulting power struggles, weary in the face of the scale of the work to be done and the apathy surrounding the issues.
.
Then I remember- I’m not alone. I love to think about how I can change the world for my kids and everyone else’s, it’s incredibly motivating, although sometimes it can feel SUCH a responsibility. 
It’s such a relief to connect with souls who see things the important things the way you do, and who are speaking UP. .
So if you’re feeling the weight of all you know, look around. Who can you be shoulder to shoulder with? Your purpose (and mine) is to make a contribution- you don’t have to do it all. .
Feeling solidarity with @chloe_do.it.like.a.mother @birthbetter @positivelybirthing @intheclubmidwifery @lionheart_hypnobirthing @tellmeagoodbirthstory @motheringmattersuk @embracebirth_ 
this week ✨

Thanks you beauties for inspiring me to keep speaking the truth💪🏻💫

  • Language matters in ALL areas of our lives, but when it comes to birth, when we are feeling vulnerable and primal, the effects can last a lifetime. .
It’s not unusual for second time Mums to share with me something that was said to them first time round that either lifted them or wounded them.
.
I’m so on board with this #everywordcounts campaign from @birthbetter 👌🏻✨
.
Head over to their feed and join in with the campaign and make birth better. Reinforce the value of the brilliant words you’ve heard, share what you wish they’d never said. .

  • It’s crazy how limited we can be by our conditioning. We find ourselves with a passion, and we assume the only ways to channel that energy are the ways everyone else is doing it. .
How freeing to realise that there are literally no rules. It’s been a privilege to see that realisation unfolding in someone I hugely admire this week.
.
Seeing her notice that the status quo is not working FOR HER, seeing that her impact could be exponentially bigger if she let go of “normal ways of doing things” and going for it.
.
Gals you can do whatever you like. It’s your life- no one is coming to rescue you.

  • I cannot get enough of @mariannewilliamson right now. This little snippet is giving me all the feels.
.
I’m not thinking of mistakes like forgetting to buy avocados 🥑🤦🏻‍♀️ (devastating as this is).
.
I mean when we act or speak in ways that don’t align with our values. We may feel shame, we may hate ourselves a bit, and that just keeps us from getting back on course.
.
