Giving up could be a good thing

Giving up could be a good thing
Giving up does not have to be a bad thing. There are plenty of things, which, if we give them up and let them go, will make our life a lot easier and much more joyful. What do you think would happen if you gave up things that cause you stress, pain, suffering? Imagine if you allowed yourself to let go of things that if you did, would cause you to be much more happy, free and at peace.

Here are some of the things that I believe can be helpful to let go of:

1. Give up on beliefs that limits you i.e beliefs that tells you that you can't do it or have it or what is possible.
2. Give up self defeating self talk. Remember to not believe everything the mind is telling you - half of it is not true and a lot of it is negative as well. 
3.Give up living your life to other people's expectations. Ask yourself; do you live "your" life. Do you listen to your heart's desire and to your intuition. You only have one life, so you must live and own it now! Don't let other people distract you on your path.
4. Give up on the need to always be right. Ask yourself if your life would be different if you let go of your ego and the need to be right all the time. Ask yourself; would I rather be right or would I rather be kind?
5. Give up blaming others. Blaming others just gives your power away and instead start loving your life
6. Give up on your limiting beliefs and what you cannot or can do. Don't allow your limiting beliefs keep you held back. Let them go and grow!
7. Give up your self defeating self talk. Saying negative and destructive things to ourselves only hurt ourselves!
8. Give up the need to be perfect and the need to impress others. That is just hard work and that is not what you are here for. Take of the mask and be unapologetically you. Then life is a lot easier and you will start attract the "right" things and people into your life.
9. Give up on any resistance to change. Change is required to move forward.. It's good! Be brace to follow your bliss and embrace change.
10. Give up on all your excuses. Excuses will only limit yourself. Throw all excuses in the rubbish bin. That's where they belong.
11. Give up on complaining. It's not the people, places or the situation that make you miserable - it's how you choose to look at it.
12.Give up on the past. This is probably the hardest one. Your past might have looked better than the now or it might have looked scary. remember that the present moment it all you have,. Embrace the now moment and plan for the future.
13. Give up fears. Did you know that you create fear? It's only an illusion. It does not exist. It is all in your mind.
14. Give up any attachments. This will detach you and you will feel more free, peaceful and be more kind.
15. Give up any labels and instead open your mind up a little more. That is when the mind can really work.


There are many more things that you may benefit from letting go off or giving up on. I'd love to hear what you are planing to give up on. Comment below.

"Show up for You and choose a beautiful life" - Transform your Wellness Podcast episode 9

"Show up for You and choose a beautiful life" - Transform your Wellness Podcast episode 9

I had the absolute privilege to interview Sara Pahi for my Transform Your Wellness Podcast.

I met Sara a few weeks ago in Torquay when we went down the beach for an early morning dip in the ocean for some cold therapy. At the time my intuition told me that I wanted to know more about this woman as I felt she had an amazing fighting spirit. A few weeks later we connected via Zoom for this interview. 
Sara is a mother, wife and she is currently studying to become a life coach. 
She was diagnosed with a stage 3 breast cancer 2019 and have gone through 6 surgeries, including bilateral mastectomy & five months of chemotherapy. 
She has 4 children (13-25). She is originally from New Zealand but has live in Australia the last 6 1/2years.

She’s worked in the health and fitness industry for most of her life and she was in the army reserve for a few years. 
Sara has faced many challenges from mental health, suicide attempts, abuse and domestic violence, eating disorders and cancer. 
Sara has learnt from every experience and she believes that she would not be the woman she is today without these experiences. 
Sara’s passion now is to help others to connect to their potential and live life from there. 

You can listen to the podcast below and you can also check out the Youtube video.

Fresh Energy Diffuser Blend

Fresh Energy Diffuser Blend
My diffuser has had a big "workout" this week. It has been on most of the day in my office. 
My favourite blend this week was one I called the "Fresh Energy" Blend.

It had 3 drops of Purification, 3 drops of Lime, 2 drops of Spearmint and 2 drops of Lemon grass.
Wow! This blend made my room smell so amazing and I help energised.

Definitely a lovely combination.
