Women Empowerment Evening

Over the weekend I attended a ‘Women Empowerment Evening’. To say the least this night was powerful in so many different ways. I walked away feeling so inspired to do better and be better. It was so beautiful to see a group of young women in one room and all have the same passions and motivations to want to be successful in life. It was also so beautiful to see how much we supported one another and how interested all of us were to learn a little bit about one another. The name of the Event was ‘Your one in a million’- I think the title speaks for itself because as women we need to remind ourselves how powerful we are and how precious and valued we are because No two are the same. Women often knock one another, or typically there is competition of who’s better or prettier or more successful and it’s evenings like this that are needed to remind women that we should stick together and support each other because WE ARE POWERFUL and together we can make major changes. It was so nice to hear and see people who want the same in life and see that they are willing to do whatever it takes to get there. The Evening was full of positive vibes and amazing energies. With more events like these maybe more women will want to support each other more rather than knocking each other down.

It is amazing the strengths we find as women because it can be so challenging at times, wether that being a mother, Business owner, a Entrepreneur or even a Student regardless of our ‘title’ or the job we have we are women first and from that alone we have strength… like I said in one my previous blogs about ‘Empowering one another’ it does not cost a thing and it’s one of the most rewarding things you can do.

So let’s all start trying to empower one another instead of tearing each other down!

Forgiveness

Sometimes in life we often think that forgiving others is the answer to feeling better when in reality we need to first forgive OURSELVES. I have to question how we expect to forgive others if we haven’t forgiven ourselves for allowing situations to control how we feel or even allowing things or people to control how we act. For many years I have been angry and annoyed at situations and people that I have faced, but recently I have come to the realisation that I was more angry at myself than anyone or anything. Letting go is like setting yourself free and although sometimes you may feel like you shouldn’t be doing the forgiving, its definitely always the best option.

So many different friendships, relationships, situation-ships can leave us feeling angry, upset and negative, but if we was to use the same energy used to be angry as we did to forgive, I’m sure people would not be so bitter towards one another and people would be a lot more happier in life and it was only until I began to forgive those who have hurt me, when I started to see that this in fact a true statement. I realised I spent so many years being upset with so many different people about so many different things that I wasted so much energy & YES you may have days when you reflect and feelings may creep back but we just need to remember why we chose to forgive and how much of a better person forgiving will make us.

Forgiveness is not allowing someone to disrespect or hurt you intentionally, but its about being mature enough to see that situations cause people to act out sometimes or even completely change who they are, but we are not the ones to judge that, we have to just except and realise that things change and people change so instead of concentrating on what happened, we can focus on what will be and have a happier, more positive life.

Knowing what is good for your Soul ✨

A lot of the time we are put in situations to test us.. People are put in our lives as either a blessing or a lesson, but one thing we need to be aware of is other people’s purpose in our lives. People often stay in relationships or friendships because that is what they know and that is what they are comfortable with, but if it is not good for your soul then why would you stay in a situation like this?  Having patience and putting up with too much often get mistaken for one another, regardless of how anyone or anything has made you feel, if it does not add value, then why would you even waste your time and energy on something that is going to physically drain you- sooner or later. Nothing or no one should make you question whether you feel good or not. Sometimes it just takes a little soul searching to find out what you actually like and what makes you happy but it is all worth it in the end.. Do you want to lead a happy life with a clean, pure soul? Then do things to make YOU happy and focus on all the pisitivities in life – STAY TRUE TO YOU ✨

It’s Okay not to be Okay✨

I haven’t wrote a blog for a while because I have not been feeling myself lately and I needed me time to get back in a good head space. I have felt all over the place and this is due to ‘Life’s struggles’. Often we automatically shut off when things get too much for us or when we have a heavy work load or even just general stress- & it’s fine to do this as everyone needs to recoperate at times and get back in a good head space. As individuals we beat ourselves up for feeling down or feeling pressured but it’s actually okay to not be okay at times, as long as you pick yourself back up and get back on the right track then your good and you will be GOOD. We need to remember about balance as I have mentioned in a previous blog- without going through a struggle how will we appreciate the good times and the stress-free times. Everyone goes through things every single day wether it be big or small but what’s important is how you come back from that and how you choose to move forward. It is easy to give up, but it’s not easy to be strong when you feel low – but be your own superhero and overcome anything negative and you will find inner strength that you never even knew existed. Don’t focus on the bad, focus on the good and remember ‘It’s Okay not to be Okay at times’. 

Expectations 💭

Sometimes in life we expect people to give us what we have given them, we often expect the same in return & why shouldn’t we? If you go above and beyond for others, you automatically assume that this will be done for you! If you put others before yourself, you want to be put first too, but unfortunately this is not always the case and rather than having expectations and disappointing ourselves, we should not assume that because we may be a certain way or do certain things for people, the same may not always be returned to us and rather than expecting and being let down, understand that NO two people are the same and all of us do not have the same hearts. It’s not to say that people are “not nice” but it’s just realising that people are different and people see things from different views. I use to get really upset when someone did not do as I would do for them, and to be fair it just made me angry and annoyed (it can still happen today) but I just have to remind myself not to get frustrated at these situations and use them to make me a better person…. All in all, STOP having expectations and don’t change yourself according to others actions 💫

Focus on the right thing 🔮💫

Sometimes in life we forget what is actually important and start focusing and putting our energies into things that will not benefit us. Our energy is so focused on the things we don’t have, we forget to appreciate and accept all the things we do. 

Instead of seeing the negative, focus on the positive and see how you can move forward to make the situation even better. Sometimes we may just need to have a talk with ourselves to realise how silly we can be at times, but hey we are all human and life is about learning and developing to become the best version of ourselves.  

So the next time you feel annoyed, angry or irritated, ask yourself – what is going good right now? & put all your focus on that. As humans we often like to make matters worse through our own thoughts and feelings and we often knock ourselves before praising ourselves. So just try and look at the bright side and focus on the GOOD not the BAD. 

Find a happy place 🌸🌼

As I sit in my garden I can feel the warm summer breeze swaying around my entire body, I can hear the kids playing and the echoes of the ice-cream truck and it makes me reminisce about my childhood and how care and stress free things once were and as I sip ice cold water, I wonderWHAT IS LIFE? 

Life is supposed to be a making memories and building moments that will never leave you , devolving as a person to become the best version of you & enjoying life so you live with no regrets or wishes. Life is supposed to be happy and lately the world has given us so many reasons to be sad. So much horrible things happening in our world, so much violence and so much HATE. It really brings me down when every time I turn the television on or every time I’m scrolling on my phone 70% of what I see and hear is all negative and it saddens me to know this is the world we live in. That’s why we need to take it upon ourselves to try and make the world a better place, even through the smallest gestures the biggest difference could be made and just remember to appreciate and enjoy everyday that we have because life is too short.

I’m sure everyone wishes they could go back to the days of playing with their friends and ice-cream trucks but we can as adults have that we just need to find our new kind of happiness and care free place and take ourselves there on a regular basis, to block out any negativity that is going on.. Be Grateful.. Be Happy .. Be Positive 🌼🌸
