I made an incredibly difficult decision to not go out on opening day. I have to pick a rental car up at 10:30 for a work event tomorrow in Buffalo. There was too much to be done and I don’t think I could enjoy it the way I wanted to. Plus 0 time for recovery if I was successful which let’s face it that’s alway the goal. So this morning I drink my coffee while staring at my woods. #adultingishard#huntingpa#archeryseason#outdoors#imnotcrying
Bryher holds a special place in my heart. I grew up @hillsidefarmbryher - the farmhouse was only small so my parents converted a garden shed into a bedroom. It was here I would blast blink 182 out from my CD player whilst getting ready for another Friday night fish and chip shift at @fraggle_bryher
Every summer I'd work behind the bar and in the kitchen, with days off spent fishing in my sisters boat 'Swordfish' (her 21st birthday present), quay jumping (using a huge trampoline we fixed to the end of the quay) and barbecues on the beaches. Being an adult is hard - take me back to those carefree Bryher summer days!
Only you can define the life you want for yourself. ✨

I can't remember ever watching the sun set and a full moon rise at the same time. And, I know i have never seen it from the empty flats of the Alvord Playa. Amazing, absolutely breathtaking. With the exception of an occasional dirt bike or truck in the distance we were alone in the quiet. It was a great spot to just be still and know He is God. I get so busy and wraped up all sorts of things and I start projects, that are all good, but there is only so much time to things and to do them well. I have already committed myself to my husband, kids and home. Not sure now if i have time for much else. After two weeks away from la vida loca, i am realizing my priorities have been totally out of wack this year. Beware sitting the Oregon Outback and asking the Lord to work in your life. Sometimes He doesn't pull punches but at least the view will be good. Cease striving or be still and know that He is God........ #reflection#hardknocks#learning#adultingishard#humblepie#change#priorities#alonetime#Oregon#oregonoutback#alvordplaya#Godisgood#moonrise

All indulgent birthday week for me spending my whole day at the spa with massages, a facial, a Korean scrub, and all the extras! •
Having a man in my life that loves to see me smiles makes it so much easier and desirable for me to give just the same love in return. •
After happily settling for a great pumpkin pie substitute (swipe and I’m sure you’ll agree) after multiple searches since it’s my birthday tradition, he made one finally pre midnight stop and we snagged one from a grocery store!!! 🙌 •
Final Word to Men: We love the big things, but it is 100% the little things that matter most! •

Falling in love with progress not perfection ❤️ .
Today was a rough day I was up most of the night with food poisoning so I was exhausted all day yet still had to do all the adulting things. .
I wanted a nap so badly but never got the chance too and the whole 30 minute drive home I was mentally battling do I do a workout?
Well Im so freaking glad I did because guess who upped her weights to 25lbs?! This girl! Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can cause the biggest celebration.
What are you celebrating? .
This is the time of the year that I began questioning more often my desire in life-seeking to contemplate with my inner self to find peace and self growth. Truly, I am being tested. #career#adultingishard#beach#island
One of the biggest struggles for a perfectionist is consistency. It’s that all-or-nothing mindset. We’re either doing everything perfectly or we’re not doing anything at all…
Over the last six years I’ve come a LONG way when it comes to this mindset, but I still have my moments. Like with insta for example! I haven’t posted here for six weeks. While I haven’t been feeling guilty about it and I'm not here to apologise for my absence, I've been telling myself that I’ll get back into it when I know I can be consistent again.
How often do we all tell ourselves shit like this? Whether I’m consistent or not is 100% in my control. Plus waiting until I can do it ‘perfectly’ is only going to make me wait longer (and create more negative momentum for me to overcome in the future). So here I am! 👋🏽
Self-sabotage doesn’t matter as much as what you do once you notice it 🤗
Is there something that you’ve been putting off until the perfect time? If so, commit to getting back into it (or getting started) this week! Do it messy and imperfectly. Do it before you have all of your ducks in a row. Do it before you feel ready.
Btw - if you want to hear from me on the regular, my podcast (The Perfectionism Project) is the best way to do that! I publish a new episode every Monday and Thursday. You can find it anywhere you listen to poddies like the Apple podcasts app, Soundcloud, Spotify, Stitcher etc. Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend! 😘
