January Joy!

By | My Life on a Plate, Uncategorized

January, for me, is not about starting something new. It’s about resting after Christmas! 😂

I used to follow the crowd, by making New Year resolutions, setting goals, making plans… And then I’d feel bad when I started to feel the pressure of trying to keep up with them all.

So, a while back, I decided to just not do it.

I kind of stuck my middle finger up to it all, and gave myself permission to breathe, relax, rest, heal, embrace and enjoy myself exactly as I am.

Right here, right now. Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing. I’m good. 😀💫

I tell you something – it did me the world of good! And I’m happy to say that I’m still in that lovely space of self-acceptance, self-kindness and self-love now.

It’s not always easy – it’s something I always have to work on, because my inner bitch loves to try and ruin my good mood by nitpicking at my flaws! But you know, I’ve even made friends with her along the way. We have an understanding now. We’re frenemies! 😂 She is as much a part of me as the rest of my body and mind, so I figured that she deserves her rightful place in my life, too. And since then, she’s actually a lot nicer to me!

So, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing and however your life seems at the moment, please give yourself a break! Give yourself the same amount of acceptance, compassion, kindness and love that you would give a baby or a puppy. And this month, instead of pressuring yourself with goals and resolutions, try embracing yourself and your life with the fullness of your presence, and just embrace your January Joy! 🎉🙌

Happy January!💜

Surrender in 2018

By | Uncategorized

I’ve just written a HuffPost article on the importance of Surrender in 2018

Surrendering to ourselves, our lives, to rest and to our natural rhythms, cycles, inner seasons and flow.

I’d really love it if you could take a few minutes to read the article, and I hope that in some small way, it resonates with you.

I also hope that your 2018 is filled with love, laughter, peace, wonder and joy! 💫

Happy New Year!

Lots of love 💜
