My little ray of sunshine

Well I’m not sure if everyone has met my cheeky little monkey – Ayla Mae. This little ray of sunshine brings more joy to the world than what I ever would have expected. 

I know all mums say that about their babies but she really will go out of her way to bring a smile to anyone she meets. 

My husband was telling me that just yesterday morning she made someone cry. Yes tears of joy. She was doing her ‘drunken orangutan’ walk out of the swimming pool complex and then saw the girl behind the counter generally she with wave goodbye but on this day she put her arms up. The girl questioned my husband as to what Ayla wanted and with his reply of “she wants a cuddle” the girls eyes filled with tears and she came around to receive her special gift of cuddles. 

This is not the first time she’s done this, people come up to us all the time to acknowledge her happiness. I’m just hoping that her little brother or sister is just as happy. I’m 18 weeks now and though excited I’m a little apprehensive to have two babies under two. I just need to remember to breathe.

I’m sure that I’m just going to be blessed with another little angel who chose me to be its mummy for my learning I’m sure. 

Much love ❤️

Am I good enough?

This is probably the most asked question that woman ask themselves every single day. 

Now I’m saying woman because I’ve just been having a conversation with miss 16 who was talking about not liking her part-time job doing dishes. I asked her if she had asked to do something else? And then came all of the:

  • I don’t want to be a burden
  • I don’t know table numbers
  • I don’t know how to do this & that
  • I’ll ask to do it when I know how to do it

I responded with: 

“We are only good at something after we have practiced it over & over & over again. Time and hard work is what gets us recognition by others. But you also have to believe in-yourself, without believing in yourself you won’t put your hand up to be the best at whatever you are doing in your life. If you don’t believe in yourself you might just settling for what’s safe in life. Living the life of your dreams may not be easy but it is truly rewarding”. 

After the conversation I started thinking about when I hadn’t believed in myself and not followed my dreams or was just playing a small game. When all of these things were happening my soul was yearning for fulfillment and I was filled with a sadness. Now even though I’m scared I will head towards my dreams with a belief that I’m worthy of anything that my heart desires. 

If am I good enough is a question that floats into your head, whether it’s frequently or not, I’d like for you to look in a mirror and say 

“You are worth anything your heart desires. 

You are amazing. 

You are enough”.

CALL ON ME

So the first time that I heard this song I loved it (but my husband turns it off when it comes on the radio – not enough energy for him). I really felt the words touch my heart as it’s what I feel when I’m working with my clients. It’s also pretty good to groove to in the car, which is what my sister Laura and myself were doing when it came on the radio when I was visiting Adelaide at Christmas 2016.
My calling in this lifetime is to asssist people to find the light when all they can see is darkness. I help them to find the love and joy in their life again even after life’s challenges have found them feeling trapped within their circumstances.
Each of my clients has a different story that they have and I really tap into finding their strengths that got them through, help them to reconnect with themselves and let go of fear, guilt and shame.
If you want to have a little groove now, even if you just are dancing with yourself click on the words; Call on me below.
When you’re low
And your knees can’t rise
You feel helpless
And you’re looking to the sky
Some people would say
To accept their fate
Well, if this is fate
Then we’ll find a way to cheat
Cause, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh we’ll say a little prayer
But, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh if the answer isn’t fair
You know you can call on me
When you need somebody
You know you can call on me
When you can’t stop the tears from falling down, down, down
You know you can call on me
Call on me, darling
You know you can call on me
Call on me, darling (call on me)
When you’re weary
And the road is dark
And I’ll guide you
With the beating of my heart
And if the calvary
And the help don’t come
Well, then we’ll find a way
To dodge a smoking gun
Cause, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh we’ll say a little prayer
But, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh if the answer isn’t fair (then call on me)
You know you can call on me
When you need somebody
You know you can call on me
When you can’t stop the tears from falling down, down, down
You know you can call on me
Call on me, darling
You know you can call on me
Call on me, darling (call on me)
When you’re, you need someone (just call on me)
You need somebody to cling to (call on me)
When you’re, you need someone (just call on me)
You need somebody to dry your tears
When you’re, you need someone (you can call me)
You need somebody to cling to (just call on me)
Just call on me, love (just call on me)
Just call on me, love (call on me)
Just call on me, love (just call on me)
Just call on me, love (call on me)
Just call on me, love, on me

Pushing through the barrier

I’ve always gone after what I want but I there has always been a part of me that “thinks” I’m unworthy of all of the glories within the world.
So today I’m starting a new experience in which I need to ask for what I’m worth. Which is one thing thst I have feared to do in the past.
Speaking with my mentor this morning she helped me put a few things into perspective for me on this journey of life. YES I still talk with mentors it’s great to be able to check in to where you are at. And today was no different than usual she told me just to remember to keep being in this present moment.
As I giggled to myself, this information is the same advice that I give to my clients.
So back to the point of this post when you come up against something that brings you fear push through that feeling and give it a go. I’m not saying put yourself into a dangerous position I’m saying give sky jumping a go or, if you want your dream job call them and ask if there’s any positions available,  or put your heart out tgere and gell the person you like how you feel about them.
You never know you may have just found the one thing that truely brings you external happiness.
