Some people can't handle success and unfortunately allow it to change them.
People who were once humble, thoughtful and genuinely nice, suddenly become egotistical and conceited
Success can change even the nicest of people
Yet true success shouldn't change a person it should enable them to grow and help others
Don't let your character change colour with your environment.
Stay true to yourself!

Beautifully in great timing. ...am giving myself a year out to do a lot more self loving and focusing on my own dreams and ambitions. ..this will mean focusing on my home business and just doing what I feel led ....not getting into big groups or projects unless it is really essential. Health needs must. Time for gentle work. ..rest. ..play...dreaming. ..and giving myself permission to not have to explain my actions anymore to anyone. I simply am who I am 😉 It's about being true to myself. ..being as authentic and real as I can be. Lots to let go of and let my soul feel lighter and liberated. As an empath I need to recover from the past few years of severe challenges. I will be posting still on social media but it will be more my hobbies or creations. ❤❤❤❤❤ One love❤❤❤❤❤ #selfworth#selflove#authenticity # #love#keepgoing#meditation#yoga#fibromyalgia#fibrowarrior#ptsd#toxicpast#toxicpeople#healing#breakingfree#anxiety#lowmoods#illness#costochondritis#gettingbacktome
I find that sex is one of the most emotion things you can do with someone, not in a way that you cry during it, but there is so much emotion involved to get to that point. I know everyone's views on it may be different to mine. I also understand as a male that we get urges and if you have a mutual agreement that there is no emotion involved then go your hardest. But to just sleep with someone, then not talk to them or only use them for sex without even taking into consideration how that other person feels or the effect it has on that person is one of the most selfish act you can do as a person. To think that someone is less of you that they don't deserve the same treatment as every human being on this planet is beyond me. Then to boast about it to your mates about how little they meant to you, when it could of meant so much to them is unfathomable. Every human on this planet deserves to be treated equally. Not one person is worth less or more than the other, we are all equal. Please, next time take into consideration someone's feelings before you decide to just get another "static." •
“What? Is that you??” said by friends who I have shown this photo to.
Yes, this is me. It was summer 2012, I was on Mykonos in Greece, was having one of the best weeks of my life ... but I was having the biggest inner struggles with my body and health. I was weighing about 15 kg less than I do today. 15 kg... In one way I feel “ugh 15 kg” and in another I feel “15 kg happy kg”. 15 kg is a HUGE difference, so I understand why people get shocked and wonder who that person in the photo really is. That is me...but the old me. A person I never want to go back to - neither physically nor mentally. It was when I was around 16 years old, when my bad habits/ food problems / eating disorders or what ever you want to call it, was created. Ugh. Not fun, but I wanted to share it with you because I know there are soooo many people who struggle with similar issues.
It doesn’t matter if I today weigh 15 kg more than I used to... because I’m so strong today. Muscle weigh more than fat, and I know I would never be able to have the booty I have today if weighted 15 kg less.😏 But most importantly, I know I wouldn’t ever be as confident and happy as I am today if I lived the weak way I used to do 5 years ago. Once again proof that body and weight isn’t and can never be a measure of your happiness.❤️

In the past week I’ve had two family members in hospital and had a v shitty breakup, felt like staying in bed for the rest of ma life but instead I’m here trying to sweat away my worries 😂😂
Nothing wrong with being vulnerable and taking some time for self care, but don’t let it cross the line into pity party 💖✌️
Feeling strong and looking forward to a happy 2018 🎉🎉
I often use to wonder why it was so hard for me to do the things that were actually so good for me.
To really, deeply care for myself, mentally, emotionally, physically, financially. Until I realised that, when you have a history of caring for others more than you do yourself, of self-neglect and at times self-abuse then it is a long journey home to learn deep self-care and self-love.
And, in addition, as women, we all live in cultures that tell us that taking care of others is more important than taking care of ourselves. Focusing on other people, neglecting my own needs and at times abusing myself and my body, either through alcohol, over-working, eating too much crap, isolating myself, staying in relationships that were not good for me, people pleasing, being a perfectionist and super self-critical, were all patterns that became second nature to me. AND, that has changed. Slowly. Slowly I have learnt that I have needs and that those needs are valid and important. Slowly I have learnt to nurture and nourish myself, not just in the simple pleasures of booking myself in for a massage, or taking myself for a swim in the ocean, or having a bubble bath, but also in the subtle and other important ways, like eating food that nourishes me, paying my bills and doing my tax, going to the dentist, rest, meditating for my mental and emotional wellbeing, seeing my therapist. Saying yes. Saying no.
Yes, it’s a long journey, but along the way I have met some extraordinary people and created a deeply meaningful life and perhaps most importantly I have got to know who I am and I am learning to treat myself as my own best friend. I am not sure there is any greater gift than self-acceptance and self-love. And from that place, I have so much more to genuinely give. With great warmth Jo
To support yourself to care for yourself as much as others we’ve created a unique online training course – The Compassionate Self-Awareness Program to Know Yourself, Care for Yourself and Be Yourself. It's for women looking for inspiration, motivation and a step-by-step path for change towards more inner confidence, calm and connection for a more authentic and meaningful life.
For a limited...
Still so amazed that we found such a magical spot so close to home... any suggestions on where we should go this weekend?
Last year, at this time @genoyoga and I had a secret. Little man (although we didn't know he was a boy) was the size of a cherry. Spilling the beans on Christmas to our families was one of the greatest memories EVER. • Fast forward to this year where we picked out a tree together for the first time. We were exhausted. Little bear hadn't been sleeping for about a week and a half at this point. He was a bit grouchy. But, mama and papa were determined...after all you can't see it but I had put on my green Christmas sweater so damn it we were going to get out of the house. And, I'm so glad we made this memory. • If you know me, you may know I'm camera shy. I don't love having my picture taken, but these moments are too precious to miss. So, I'll say what I need to hear. Take the picture even if you're tired. Let your husband capture the way he sees the moment even if your makeup isn't perfect. Because, it's your spirit and the memory we're after. And, you're beautiful always. #firstchristmas#makingmemories 🎄
