Oh, how I wish working from home ALWAYS looked like a daybed and fuzzy blanket at Lake Michigan. 🌊But can I really complain?! It’s the first day of spring and I’m takin a break from calligraphy course creation to meet my husband at the dog park!
Friends, there will always be more work to do. Take a break. Go for a walk. Get up and stretch. Trust me, you’ll feel much better ◡̈
Fight that voice in your head that’s telling you that 👊🏼you’re not strong enough to bust out one more rep
👊🏼you’re not strong enough to beat your cravings
👊🏼you’re not strong enough to ditch your old habits
Conquer that voice in your head and prove yourself wrong 💪🏼 Let’s quit comparing our selves to others and start putting our energy towards being better than the person you were yesterday.
It’s not drinking iced coffee in secret.
It’s not all or nothing.
It’s about balance.
It’s about a splurge vs an addiction.
Yesterday I treated myself to an iced latte. It was delicious. It hit the spot. And it was worth it.
This used to be my every day. Now it’s every few weeks and it’s way tastier and so much more satisfying when it is a treat instead of a daily bad habit or crutch.
What is the one lesson you've learned in your writer or entrepreneurial journey that you feel you need to share?
A lot of my clients have said that they wanted to write but didn't know how to start or where to start. So I ask them this question. And most of them discover their purpose, discover why they have this burning passion in them to write.
What have you discovered in your journey that your readers, your followers, your clients, and your tribe must know?
And remember if you've got that burning passion in you to share and write this lesson, let's get it started. I've got openings again for April for 3 new book coaching clients. Let's make it happen for you and let's empower other women with your stories. Send me a DM to get started.
After a quick visit to Wellington and Te Papa museum at Monday we headed north to Paraparaumu. We were quite tired after long drives at the South Island so a rest for two nights with (new) friends was just what we needed. It was so nice to see the boys playing around with some kiwi kids, as we haven’t met many other families on the road here. It was really nice to get to know even more people from the McHutchon clan 😄 Thank you so much for your hospitality 🙏🏼
Today we finally got to see the New Zealand national icon at the Nga Manu Nature Reserve: the Kiwi 😍 As it is a nocturnal bird it was hard to get a nice photo of it in the nocturnal house... Did you know that kiwi eggs are larger in proportion to the body size than any other bird? The average kiwi egg weighs about 20 % of the females weight. The kiwi is also the only bird with nostrils at the top of its long beak.
Amongst lots of birds, trees and other plants that are endemic to New Zealand we also got to see a tuatara. The tuatara is a “living dinosaur” as it is the only survivors of an ancient group of reptiles that existed 255 million years ago. The adult tuataras are nocturnal as the kiwi, hence the reddish photo...
Our exploring day was ended by iconic Mount Egmont / Taranaki. The beautiful mountain is one of the most symmetrical volcano cones in the world. It is the second highest peak at the North Island with its 2518 metres.
But what’s about these striped black and white cows?? Wonder if they are endemic to New Zealand as well 🤔 Candy-cows maybe?? 😄
