You create your own reality so think positively and take control of your life☺️

What ingredients if you like, go into making each and every one of us so different?

Suffice to say we are not only defined by our names, ages and roles we play in life. We are a sum of many parts which makes each and every one of us distinctively unique. Its important that we think, reflect and appreciate the diversity of life within ourselves and others.

To really focus on the ‘I’ inside each of us that is often unheard, forgotten or ignored we need to start listening to our gut instincts. We are made up of so many different aspects, and have various selves- our physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual, social, cultural, religious and sexual selves.

This is not an exhaustive list there are many other factors that make us unique- our age, gender, class and economic status. Our personal experiences in life shape who we are, how we think and how we behave towards others. We all share a natural curiosity to learn more about ourselves and others in order to enrich and enhance our personal and professional relationships.

I invite you to reflect on your own personal journeys in life. To celebrate the diversity of life and appreciation of the self and all it encompasses- the beauty of being you.

You never know you might just inspire yourself! Oh and just a quick note to say I love using relevant quotes the one below by Brene Brown is very relevant on this topic💜

If you think dealing with issues like worthiness and authenticity and vulnerability are not worthwhile because there are more pressing issues, like the bottom line or attendance or standardized test scores, you are sadly, sadly mistaken. It underpins everything”.
