The black leather gloves

It was 3 degrees this morning, friggin freezing and I was so so cold even rugged up in all my winter glory. I was getting my almond cap at the funky cafe across from where I work at flow. The days I go there I dont move for about 8 hours except to gather food and water and stretch and move to circulate my blood and then back into writing and working from a designated desk… no home comforts or other distractions. I was going to pay for my coffee but I couldn’t get to my cards as the beautiful leather gloves I had chosen to wear that morning were making it impossible to manoeuvre.

I really love the way the black leather gloves were making me feel and reflected this morning on how they made my son feel…. he wasn’t in the mood for anything and continued to tell me that I thought I was so cool and powerful in these black leather gloves and how I should stop thinking I was cool. For me I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought mmm they do look really cool and so I proceeded to use my hands as I spoke and felt fabulous that I had owned such gloves. I felt even more fabulous because I’d been able to keep them for a period of three years without them disappearing into the same abyss the socks in our house go to where there are never lifelong partners …. they are merely a love affair for a short time. Probably if I didn’t use these black leather slim fit gloves every day the story would be one of brief romance but for today they were together and they were possibly the coolest thing this morning being 3 degrees.

My son’s comment made me wonder “What is it that in coming out in a way that is stylish or beautiful or loud or healthy and vibrant could ever be a bad thing“. Yet it leads me to wonder about the society we live in and how we should all just fade into the same shade of colour. This morning I felt different in those gloves, not really from the actual accessory of them but because I have got so much more comfortable of late being in me…. being in the essence of me and standing out.

The more you commit to being you and getting to know you, the greater your life becomes because you not only tune into your body and your life but you are the fuel for your life…standing out in your life! So as my son was talking I held the space and I hope that today he had a moment when he realised that standing out is the greatest thing we can do for ourselves because it means that you’re not just settling for the same colour of life as the next person…. You’re just being out there grooving to the sound of your own drum or the stand out style of those well loved and looked after black leather gloves.

Shining your light always gives others permission to shine there’s… Today give yourself permission to shine.

I want you to connect into our Elevate community and in doing so share the space with some women like you that are connecting with their brightest self.

The Little Hijacker

I don’t know if you saw my video yesterday…if you didn’t here it is again

 

So, I’m over in Huntington California and I’m doing a big marketing course which is awesome; we have been given the assignment to do a video on our business page live. I am with my gorgeous buddy and we head to a beautiful beach, down onto the sand and get ready for my Facebook live.

Halfway through the live, I hear a mum yelling at her daughter… it was so loud.  Then out of the corner of my eye, I see this mum rushing back and forth and back and forth to the kid on the beach carrying the bags and towels and she was bothered!  The next minute she yells “Get in the car you little shit!” and I immediately wanted to laugh. I wanted to laugh because for a second I was embarrassed that it had happened while on my live, but then I refocused and came back to what I was saying…in that moment of the chaos around me I finished the Facebook live. As I thought about this later I was like “wow here I am on a beach in California and I’m talking to my clients, who I know are tired exhausted and angry at their kids, and frustrated with their lives, their body and their health and I have this woman who I could essentially connect with screaming at her kid”. I thought how I could have got in that moment completely hijacked and gone off track, but instead, I chose to allow what was happening around me and keep on the path.

This is what is going on for my women. The women I help always have these areas in their lives that hijack their health and vitality. They have food cravings, demands of children, they have worry about what they look like, or stress that leads to exhaustion and essentially it hijacks them and their life. But me being present yesterday and not hijacked allowed me to see that we need to become aware of what the first step to learning or changing something is. In your health how are you being hijacked?

Now I want you to go over to our page and see if there is some hijacking going on for you and check out our website and when you get there put in your email and name and this will be the first step to free your health and vitality.
