So I wrote down a bunch of things I wanted to start doing!📖 •
I feel like a lot of people do that this time of year with New Years Resolutions coming up. I decided that I wanted to start early 🌅so I could begin the New Year a little closer to where I want to be!
Change is gradual and slow. Lots of New Years resolutions are one (or more) HUGE goals that are not broken up into manageable smaller ones. It can become overwhelming and then there can be a tendency to give up. So just a reminder your Resolutions don’t have to be some life altering decision - it and be a stepping stone💗
So long story📖short ~ I decided to not wait a month for the New Years green light🚦to get me motivated!
I’m going to post my pre-resolutions tomorrow so you can get an idea of what I’m talking about 🥰 (The first step is revamping my morning routine ✌🏻)
When are feeling stuck and don’t know what to do, just take a step in ANY direction.
Try something new.
Say yes to something you thought you’d never do.
Reach out to a friend, colleague, or someone you admire.
Change up your routine.
Ask for help.
Make a change.
You don’t need to see the whole staircase, AKA you don’t need to know where the stairs will lead you at the end.
Just take the first step and see what happens.
Christmas is all about family… love is in the air this time of the year!
I am so freaking excited to be able to spend time with my family this year and I simply cannot wait to see them. So spent last night sorting photos from this year and preparing little Christmas gifts for them.
Dzień dobry w #kreatywnaśroda i poniekąd wrzucam wczorajszy zaległy post na #instawtorek ...oto moje świąteczne klimaty. 🎄Ostatnio poświeciłam troche czasu, by ogarnąć swoje zdjęcia z tego roku. Ohh tyle pięknych wspomnień…
2019 has been a fab cruising year!
A fantastic 9 weeks aboard.
Ive been so grateful to be able to cruise for the full amount of my leave this year.
Makes all those 21 hour shifts worth it.

Every day I see people who have a loved one taken from them with no warning. It may be an accident , may be a spontaneous brain haemorrhage, may be an assault. All tragic.
I see families who take comfort in knowing their loved one lived their life to the fullest, that looks for different people.
For me it’s cruising. As often, as possible with my wonderful husband, or amazing parents, sometimes all three of them.
Do what makes you happy and do it lots.
You never ever ever know what’s around the corner.
Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

My Miracle Mornings start tomorrow!
I am NOT a morning person (unless it’s Christmas, we’re heading to the airport, it’s my Birthday or the day my husband comes home from Afghanistan) so I have had to build up to this over the past few weeks, getting up a little earlier each day, setting aside time for personal development in the morning, doing some yoga to prepare me mentally and physically for the day ahead and understanding that:
I don’t need 11 hours sleep (wish I was exaggerating on that one)
I should leave myself more than 6 minutes to run out the door to work (again I wish I was speaking hypothetically)
I need time for my brain, my body and my gut to engage, take stock of what’s happening and get me geared up for an amazing day!
I don’t need a ‘snooze’ button because I’ve been pressing the snooze button on my life for long enough!
You can get SO MUCH done in the mornings before you start your ‘9-5 day’ before the rest of the house is awake, before your phone starts going/you start scrolling and before you need to deal with everyone else and their stuff.
Last Christmas I was blessed I woke up to my beautiful Princess Molster being at home with me..
Christmas 2019 I will awake without her 😢but will look forward to her arriving home for lunch.
Sharing your child at Christmas & Birthdays is hard. As a parent you have a child and think they will be with you 24/7...
When relationships break down you have to do what’s best for both parties involved. Children have 2 parents..
So for the past 15 years I’ve had to share my child throughout the week having her 4 days out of 7...
1 year waking up with Molly the next year waking up without her.
Not waking up with her on her 18th birthday and so on...
To me Christmas is a day..
That’s how I get through it.
I cherish the time throughout the year with my baby girl & that means more to me than any Christmas..
The most important thing is Mollys happiness.. #christmas#princess#memories#makethemostoflife#presents#daughter#love#family#onelife#singlemom#singleparents #itsonlyaday@mollweir_
HOW TO DANCE IN THE RAIN
One of my mentors sent me an article that has a touching story and I want to share it with you. It mattered so much to me because I share the same perspective. Read on... “It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00am. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On examination, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health.
He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now. I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?' He smiled as he patted my hand and said, “She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.” I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, “That is the kind of love I want in my life.”” True love is neither physical, not romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be and will not be.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Remain inspired. Live purposeful. Be successful.

I've always been multi- passionate. .
Growing up, I didn't do just one activity. I swam, I hiked in the summer, I skied in the winter. I played flute and piccolo in school and even bowled on a league. .
That didn't really change with time. I've changed my career path a few times and now I'm following my heart and learning to do what I love. Coaching, inspiring, supporting women to be healthy, happy and independent 🥰
Everyday now I get to..
✅ Run my very own business (**No one tells me what to do. I get to make all my own decisions)
✅ Teach others which is so satisfying and fulfilling. ✅ Exercise and live a balanced life (**Not just for me..I had trouble keeping it up for just myself... but inspiring others helps keep me going)
✅ Network with other AMAZING women who I learn SO MUCH from. Some of my best friends have come from coaching.
And sooo much more...
So if you've been searching for balance, passion and living your best life...(like I was)

The REAL reason you haven’t seen change…
When you want to create change in your life you have to REALLY want it.
There isn’t room for the phrase “I really want it, but…”
Your excuses can’t stand a chance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have to set your sights on that goal and do everything it takes to get there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even if that means a time consuming set back, or a challenge that’s beyond your comfort zone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In truth, the obstacles are the exciting part! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s where you start to grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How much do you want that thing? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s keeping you from it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If it’s excuses holding you back - it’s time to drop them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But if it’s uncertainty about how to get there, it’s time to ask for help.
I help female entrepreneurs find their stride and put the proven steps into action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Wir alle haben eine Menge Freizeitstress in der Weihnachtszeit. Ich habe besonders viele Dinge, die ich für die kommende Woche organisieren muss. Um dem ganzen Trubel zu entkommen, war ich im Goodiebox Pop-up Store in Mitte und habe mir eine Box mit wunderschönen Geschenken für mich selbst zusammen gestellt. Das hat Spaß gemacht. Vergesst in dem Trubel nicht, an euch selbst zu denken! @goodieboxde#happinessbygoodiebox#goodieboxde
Last year, the first six or seven months, I would do multiple events, go straight back to work in the office and go straight into more events. And I did this to try to create a much higher level of visibility in the office but I really did myself a disservice because I burnt myself out. It wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been but only because I’d been doing intermittent fasting and training really hard so it kind of softened the landing.
So one of the things that I learnt last year was that the healthier and fitter you are, the softer the landing is if you burn out. The unhealthier you are and the more unfit you are, you don’t land softly. You crash. Hard!
To prevent burnout altogether, I’ve had to learn (multiple times) to be very, very aware of your own body. Know what base neutral looks like for you so that if you do start to feel a bit burnt out, that’s when you know to pull the reins back and put in place a recovery plan.
Remember that people are at their very best when they’re well exercised, well fed, well watered and well rested.
