You are not only your body or only your reflection!Β 

Always! And if that’s too hard, don’t find another mirror, just stop looking!

You are not your reflection! You are so much more than anyone else can and will ever see!

You are your soul, your spirit, your smile, your heart, your warmth, your love, your charm, and much much more!

You are not only your body or only your reflection!

I forgive you for all the heartache you put me through 18-19 years ago

When you’re directed to  the only free isle in the supermarket, you look up and see that the cashier is your ex! 

In that split second you make the choice to stay and start unpacking the trolley! 

She see’s you and flushes! That’s right Vix, you got this, just another person! 

Conversation starts as she packs your bag for you. You talk back in a normal tone, just pleasantries. Forgetting everything that happened in the past, I might have poor short term memory recall skills but my long-term memory is perfect!  
In my head I tell her I forgive her for everything! Because everything that happened 18-19 years ago, shaped who I am today and for that I am grateful​! 

Anyone that knows me from that time in my life, I’m sure you will remember my attitude towards the situation! 

So you will know how momentous this mornings events are! 
This confirms to me that my health coaching sessions are paying off and I am becoming a better version of myself! 

Thank you @louiseavilesyoga

Family weekend of quilt free fun!

What an amazing weekend! 

We ate what we wanted, drank what we wanted, took selfies with no make up on, laughed so much we might have pee’d a little and just basically had a flipping incredible time!

I don’t feel guilty about it, neither am I going to punish myself by not eating or exercising until I’ve worked off those extra calories, (frankly that would be impossible!) 
I may think about cutting back a little but it won’t be much different to what I ate/drank before! 

(She says with a cookie in her hand!… Hey its ok, its gluten free! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚)
Life is all about balance!

Realising I let the negativity in & being ok with that!

Last week I let myself listen to that inner negativity, which is ok to a certain degree, as long as you don’t hold on to it!
That’s where my lesson was! I held on and forgot about all the amazing, positive things in my life. I was being far to critical and hard on myself.

I am so grateful to all the wonderful people that are always there for me, the ones that have my back, the ones that glue me back together! 

I love you all unconditionally!

Tattooing 27/4/17

This week is MS awareness week in the UK, something I am very aware of everyday as you can imagine! 
MS has changed my life! I learn new things about my-self every day because of it. Some things I’m not keen on which is ok because at least I can spend time reflecting on the things I don’t like, as long as I’m not spending too much time on one thing because then it becomes unhealthy! 
Its taken me along time to get to this point of acceptance, there is no end point to it though, something people may not know is how much MS can change from day to day, meaning everyday we may have to adapt and accept something new or even the return of an old symptom! 

Our lives are never boring! 
Yesterday was an amazing day! A day that I had been planning and working on for a long time! 

Yesterday I took myself into the city of Coventry, its only just over 10 miles away, but for someone with extreme anxiety, this is an amazing thing to do! 
I went to see this beautiful, kind & gentle soul, Holly Marie. So she could get creative and mark me with a beautiful image, that would forever remind me of what an incredible journey I am on. 

The point I am at in my life now, feels so right! I feel as though, with the guidance of so many over the last 7 years (and more, even before my MS) I have started To unveil the real me and like a Lotus flower, I am blossoming!
What an epic LifeJourney! 

Thank you for treating me so well yesterday Holly and I’ll see you in 2 weeks for my next symbolic image!
