We aren’t born the same size or weight and this is something that no-one has any control over. 👶🏼 Somewhere along the way we forgot that our body shapes are mostly out of our control. 🤷🏼♀️
People are different heights, have different size feet, have different colour eyes, skin, hair, some girls are big busted (lol me) and some are not, this list goes on and on because people are different 💅🏼 All of these are physical traits that people accept are not in a persons control, they are genetic. Why do we then think that weight is not the same as every one of our other physical features?
It is not fair to idealise a perfect body weight that everyone needs to aspire to because it’s just not realistic. It is as absurd as having an ideal height that everyone needs to try to be. 🤣
I created this page because I wanted to ‘normalise normal’ but one of the biggest things I’ve learnt is that normal is actually difference. Let’s normalise self-love, compassion and confidence instead 💕✨

Today is the FINAL day of travel season and I am so excited! Why am I excited?! I managed to not get sick, and I managed to eat mostly vegetables, and I managed to sleep like a normal person😴 Whenever you’re considering taking any kind of extended trips, try (as best you can) I keep your body on some kind of schedule so that it returns the favor, and keeps you healthy
In order to keep things real simple, I like to remember a few things 1️⃣ Try to make veggies the majorly of your meals 2️⃣ Fruit is nature’s candy, enjoy earlier in the day as they are great sources of energy 3️⃣ Don’t deprive yourself of the treats that you enjoy, live is meant to be lived🤷🏾♀️ 4️⃣ Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate (and an additional glass, or two, to your normal intake
Life is meant to be lived, and food is meant to support in that endeavor. Traveling is a perk that can put extra pressure on your body, so take good care of you!
The universe wanted me to be a better person so it sent me you.
17 years ago when this man who was only a boy came into to my life, I did not expect it or know that he was going to love me so unconditionally and make me feel like I am the most special person to him in the world. ⠀⠀
I didn’t believe I was worthy of such a love. I didn’t even know this type of love existed. ⠀⠀
My husband asked me recently if I could turn back 30 years and relive my childhood or have endless amounts of money, but you would have to fast forward 30 years of your life. Which would I choose?!
I didn’t think too hard and asked him what he would choose. He quickly responded go back in time.
So, then I thought for a second and my body started to have the strangest reaction. I could not, would not live through my childhood again. I would give up 30 years of my life without the money. ⠀⠀
Living in disfunction with abuse and addiction can do that to a person. You forget for protection. ⠀⠀
Sean thought that was so terribly sad because he had such a fantastic childhood. I was so lucky that I had my 4 brothers and little sister. We stuck together and protected each other. I still have so many good memories but I really did lose my way through my high school years. I was not the nicest person to be around. ⠀⠀
Meeting Sean when I was 17 literally saved my life. Well that’s what my mum says. I do believe her, although the feminist in me wants to believe I could of done it all alone. I needed this man, I love this man and I always want to need him. ⠀⠀
I don’t know if the trauma I faced and went through as a child and the accident that changed my family forever when I was going through puberty has a role in my lipoedema or its a mix of genetics, environment and emotional factors. ⠀⠀
I don’t have control over the past but I do have control over my present and future. I love the person I have become and I want to stay right here and live everyday. No fast forwarding or rewinding for me. ⠀⠀
I changed my path and so can you. ⠀⠀
Now tell me would you take the money or go back in time?
Learning to surrender.
Lately I've been doing a lot of reflecting and I feel that my current formula for life goes something like this.
Vulnerability+compassion+gratitude=living. It can be challenging but is worth the discomfort and requires a lot of surrender.
What's your formula look like?
