Who can relate?!⠀
Caring what people think is innate to us as human beings. It's about survival. If you pissed off the tribe you might have gotten kicked out and left to fend for yourself. ⠀
But it can go too far and mean we don't end up asking for what we need and want. We might say 'yes' when really we mean 'no'. We might end up burning out because we don't look after ourselves enough. Or secretly resenting the other person because we feel uncared for. ⠀
I talk about this loads in my book #BraveNewGirl⠀
The first step starts with recognising where people pleasing hold you back. What would you like to change? ⠀

For my ladies who are stuck and are battling with limiting beliefs that are keeping you from moving forward and achieving the life you want, I invite you to join me on this 5-day challenge with @manifestationbabe ✨✨
One thing that really stood out at me from today's class was learning about the Law of Oneness.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐚𝐰 𝐨𝐟 𝐃𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐎𝐧𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬
Everything is connected to everything else. ... Everything that exists seen and unseen are connected to each other, inseparable from each other to a field of divine oneness.
In other words anything that is possible for me is possible for you and everything that is possible for you is possible for me. We are all connected. We are the Universe.
Can't wait for tomorrow's lesson.

There is a saying, that “nothing is consistent but change.” Drop a 🦋 if you have changed? 👇🏼
How we deal with changes that are thrown our way says a lot about who we are as a person, and the inner strength and esteem that we have.

There is something about the butterfly that seems to inspire us. 🐛👉🏼🦋✨
The butterfly’s remarkable shape-shifting journey carries an important message for us to seek out and find our true essence, no matter how far removed it may be from our present selves. It’s an inspiring message that teaches us that growth and transformation need not be traumatic or painful, but rather liberating and joyful, a natural part of life’s continuous unfolding.
Change can be a powerful force for growth and transformation. The key is not fearing or fighting against it, but rather seeing it as a tool that empowers us to release the old and give way to the new, a natural cycle in our greater life experience. When an ending comes knocking, we need not fear it, knowing that as each cycle ends, an entirely new cycle is beginning.
The only thing certain is that gracefully transitioning through the life cycles requires courage and trust. Empower yourself. Have trust in who you are.
𝐅𝐮𝐧 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: The butterfly really inspires me. If you have been following me for a while you have probably noticed that my signature ends with a 🦋 and its also on our bio. 😊

To heel strike or not to heel strike? 🦶
What do you think? What have you read or heard? Probably something like, your [blank] injury is because you heel strike. Or you should start to land forefoot or mid foot to prevent injuries. Land on your midfoot to run faster. Change this change that😵...
But what if this is the best way for (us) to run is what our bodies have naturally figured out? The way we strike the ground has been a topic of conversation for some time. It came up ages ago when we all started to toss our shoes as we tried to imitate the barefoot tribes beautiful, natural stride. They make it look so effortless! Should we change how we run? Have our shoes caused us to run differently? They probably have caused us to deviate in some way. Time will only tell. But we also don't hear too often about the tribes who run barefoot, & also heel strike! Or that elites also heel strike 😱
In a study of around 1,000 marathon runners, 88% were heel striking at the 10k mark. By 32k, 93% were heel striking. A majority of the population is heel striking. So why all the fuss? No reason to bend over backwards to change what ya motha gave you. Even when people "adjust" and think they are striking mid or forefoot, they are still heel striking. When people wear super cushioned shoes, they heel strike some more, possibly due to a loss of proprioception. Their body doesn't know where the ground is. And when people decide to run barefoot, they alter their gait, but still heel strike! It's ingrained in us. A forced change may be a catalyst for more problems popping up in the lower leg. It seems like there is no clear cut evidence that heel striking is "bad." Unless you're overstriding, which is a topic all its own.
At the end of the day, be cognizant of where your information is coming from and what you change. And for love of it, just go run. Run happy. Run because you love to sweat. Love to be alone. Love to be with friends. Whatever. Keep it simple. Maybe these barefoot tribes make it look so easy and beautiful because they don't get stuck in all the damn mumbo jumbo. We were indeed born to run 🏃🏾♂️🏃🏃🏼♀️🏃🏃🏽♀️🏃🏾♀️
