If you had asked me a couple of years ago about pilates, I probably would've rolled my eyes and said "notions"! So imagine my surprise when I came to realise that one of the best things I have ever done for myself was join @reboundfitness to do 2 classes a week! For over a year now I have been going, and not once have I ever regretted peeling my ass off the couch and heading down there. Regardless of how I'm feeling, I don't make lame excuses to not go, being too tired or lazy is not an option. I only miss a class for genuine reasons, and I'm usually gutted if I can't make it.
I don't know if I'm seeing any difference in my shape, but I swear those 2 hours every week do so much for me... and quite often they have saved my family from a very bad-tempered mammy! The difference it makes to my humour is unreal, (my husbag has been known to push me out the door if I make any noises about not going) 😂
Now don't take me wrong, it's not all deep breathing and meditation, @hustlehardlynne is a bloody tough task master and I've often been walking like a 90 year old the day after my class, but I do get a great sense of satisfaction from it, even if I do spend the whole class moaning and giving out that it's too hard! 🙈🤪 I have tried many other classes over the years that just haven't really "done it" for me, but my pilates class is a non-negotiable in my life - and I can tell ya, I never thought I'd hear myself saying that about such a "notions" class! 😂

As a teenager I definitely preferred being out with friends getting into trouble drinking or doing whatever drugs I had newly discovered at that time.
Once I hit 20 tho that changed, I felt less interested in the party scene and more interested in staying home.
I felt drained in social settings and began to notice how much I truly enjoyed my alone time.
So I moved almost 3 hours away to attain some independence from friends so I could really focus on myself and what I was wanting in life.
This is when everything started to change for me. My personal development journey started to bloom before I even really knew what that “stuff” was all about.
Fast forward three years through a lot of hard times, great times and new found personal growth and I had developed a whole new perspective on life.
Although this time in my life was hugely beneficial to me, I didn’t realize how three years of isolation from friends or family would weigh on me.
I became an extremely agitated person when I was around people and all I wanted to do was be alone in the worst way...
Once again the narrative goes back to balance haha it seems to be a reoccurring trend in life eh
I believe everyone is intro and extroverted to some extent, some people just lean more to one side or the other.
So whether you are more intro or extroverted, honour what feels good for you but also don’t be closed minded to experimenting outside of that.
I joined a beach volleyball league expecting to hate it because it meant I would have to be social with strangers every single Thursday for 4 consecutive months but by the end of it I looked forward to going and blowing off steam with my new found friends.
So how bout you, are you more of a social butterfly or more of a hermit?

What a beautiful hotel we have been staying in the last few days. Very grand, opulent and totally different from my home tastes, but it’s beautiful to have the chance to stay somewhere a little bit different! The food is amazing and it is such a dog centred hotel, so perfect for furry companions! Would definitely recommend a visit!
Hope you’re having a good week so far everyone 😊 xxx

So I have been reading into Masculine & Feminine energy recently. Growing up you would assume Masculine=Man and Feminine=girl. However all genders harbour both and it’s absolutely amazing me to find out about my own energy.
I’m realising that I harbour a huge amount of Masculine energy. I have a structured and organised approach, especially in the past I always needed things to work a set way. I struggled to “flow” and allow to let things unfold naturally. This has shifted massively over the past year however I still catch myself struggling to slow down and just let things come to me naturally. Especially with work.
I am highly empathetic and nurturing, which allows my Feminine energy to flow, I love this part about myself. However, I always struggled to express myself through my physical body, I also used to struggle with honouring my emotions, if I cried I felt I was too “soft” if I was frustrated I was being “a bitch”. This pushed me into a shell I created to protect, but resulted in me feeling unauthentic and trapped, unable to express and feeling like I was alone.
Surrounding myself with the right people has been one of the huge catalysts for developing my Feminine energy. You see when your surrounded by people who truly want to know your soul, your natural balance of energy will awaken. You will no longer be criticised for showing emotion, you will be celebrated for honouring your need to express.
I’m finding it so beautiful and interesting to find which traits of both wonderful energies I harbour so that I can balance and allow my life and relationships to flow. This inner work truly never stops and it’s one hell of a lesson I can’t wait to continue learning from.
I chose to use this image alongside this caption because trust me, I would not have felt comfortable posting for this if it wasn’t for my beautiful soul sister celebrating me and my body every damn time. I’m so grateful for you and your creative expression @lumal_weg
How about you? Would you class yourself as more Feminine or Masculine?
I’m a fan of dirty feet. When I was growing up I ran around all day outside without my shoes on. Rainy muddy days were the best. I feel blessed that I grew in a time where I preferred running around outside to staying inside playing video games. And even as a whole grown ass woman... I still prefer to be outside playing with my two best fur friends
You are not here to simply follow the crowds and do what everybody else is doing.
You are here to create your own vision of life and then bring that vision to life. You are here to break away from normal, set new standards, shake things up. You are here to be yourself and to be different.
You are here to live out your wildest dreams and create your own reality. You are here to follow your unique passions because what you can do, nobody else can.
