Go with the Flow

The latest episode of my No Bullshit Guide to Life is now live. Click on the pic above to have a listen and of course, please do subscribe, rate and review over on iTunes.

This week I’m talking about going with the flow. Do you ever allow yourself to deviate from the blueprint you’ve made for your life or do you stick to it resolutely? I’m making the argument in favour of going with the ebb and flow of life, using those curveballs the universe throws us and picking up on those signs that may be pointing us in a new direction.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

International Women’s Day

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY Y’ALL!

I like to celebrate the awesomeness that is womanhood every day. One of the ways I choose to do that is through movement. I do it through loud, brazen, happy, skippy, unapologetic movement, because I can. I strip down to my sports bra and rock a spin bike like a champ because I have the freedom to OWN that moment. I Instagram my runs because I can keep going, because a mere 48 years ago, women were literally being pushed off marathon courses.

There’s No Such Thing As Ready

AZ1A2593

If you’re majorly into planning and plotting and getting all your ducks in a row, that title probably freaked you out a bit, huh? I mean, we’re kinda reared on the very notion of readiness. Wait a bit, don’t fire off to quickly, bide your time. Well I say bollocks to that! Who’s making these rules?! If you wanna do something, go ahead and do it. There’s plenty to be said for learning as you go and flying by the seat of your pants. So hold onto your hat, kiss your comfort zone goodbye and give ‘being ready’ the middle finger.

Shopbop Sale – Woo hoo!

image029

One of my favourite websites, Shopbop, is having an awesome sale starting today, so if you wanna nab yourself some super sweet threads, get on it!

I get most of my sportswear on Shopbop. They have a great range of brands that you don’t find everywhere else.

In the sale, you can save 15% on purchases over $250, 20% on purchases over $500 and 25% on purchases over $1000. Get a few friends together and do a group order so you can save more (HASHTAG HANDY HINTS!)

I’m about to head over and peruse the Activewear section – if you wanna get some pieces before I grab them all, I suggest you hop to it!

Give it Up For Down Time

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

The busy-ness epidemic has reached epically peak levels. We’re always doing something. If we’re not working, we’ve got family commitments, if we’re not with family, we’re with friends, if we’re not with friends, we’re tackling our always-way-too-long to-do lists and while we’re doing that we’re Instagramming and Tweeting the bejesus out of all to make sure people know our lives have substance. But aren’t you tired? Don’t you wish you had a second to just breathe and be? I know I do. So I’ve decided to schedule down time into my week and ensure I devote that time to doing as little as I want. HELL YEAH!

Feel the Force Field

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I’m entering a new chapter in my life career wise. I’m trying to step it up at every level, so I’m not just a boss, I’m a BAWSE. It involves me pushing myself, exploring new avenues, ensuring I’m always giving my very best (and a multitude of other little things that are probably too boring for me to write about here). But one of the main things is setting limits for myself, or expectations, if you will – a set of rules for the kind of behaviour I will allow in my life. I’m calling it my ‘Don’t Fuck With Me Force Field’ and lemme tell ya, the force is strong in this one.

Marathon Training Your Mind

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I can’t remember if I mentioned I’m running London Marathon this year, but there you have it, I am. I’ve kept it pretty low key ’cause really there’s nothing more boring than someone constantly banging on about marathon woes (and I say that as a runner). I’ve taken a head-down-get-on-with-it kind of approach which seems to be serving me well. I thought I’d drop in and leave a couple of wisdom nuggets that have come to me as I’ve run because yes, running is a total metaphor for life and my footsteps have led to some interesting thought bubbles of late.
