No matter the pain it has taken you to get here;
the love you have lost, given up on (passed by). the wars you have fought, run from (chased after)
you are still the expanse of the sky
you are still the air
the moving tide
& everything in between
it is your birthright
to grow and ache
and change and learn
and hurt and heal
you belong here // @loveaprilgreen
🔮 still buzzing after the incredible seminar I attended last week & all the revelations, ah ha's and just immense gratitude & blessings that have ever been apart of my life ✨ you are love, you are continually evolving, you will hurt, you will heal, you will change, you will grow and you will ultimately be e x a c t l y who and where you need to be 🔮
VIBES ❤❤❤ My message to YOU all as I turn 27 today 🍀🍀 Here's some little nuggets of wisdom I've learnt along my 27 years - especially in the past 2! ✌✌
🍀1. It doesn't matter what age you are - whatever age you thought you would feel 'like a grown up' - you don't 🤣
🍀2. Never be afraid to be proud of your unique habits & qualities - I love raw broccoli with nut butter on it and I'm doing just fine 🤣
🍀3. More often than not, say YES. You never know where one word takes you.
🍀4. Going to places alone is actually a sign of strength & confidence - and usually leads to a new friend or two!
🍀5. Coffee is a beautiful thing. 🍀6. Movement no matter what form is medicine, and our bodies need it every single day.
🍀7. I am not defined by how sweaty my workout was. 🍀8. 'Tracking macros' is not for me ✌
🍀9. Falafel is frickin LIFE. 🍀10. As is nut butter. And tahini. 🍀11. Over training is a legit issue - and I'm finally kicking it in the butt at 27 🤣
🍀12. Brunch may be a bit indulgent, but it's also wonderful. 🍀13. Writing is the hobby I lose myself in. It's part of why I love to blog so much. 🍀14. Passion does not sit in your heart for you to ignore it. 🍀15. You can't describe passion to someone - you know it when you feel it. 🍀16. Being a doctor means many things - but I live by 3 Cs - Competence, Compassion & Confidence. 🍀17. Be kind. Smile. It's free & comes back to you in buckets. 🍀18. Treat others as you would want to be treated. 🍀19. Generosity is a beautiful thing - if it doesn't come naturally to You, work at it everyday. 🍀20. A cup of solid ginger tea is frickin delish anytime.
🍀21. Dark Chocolate & Greek Yoghurt every frickin day. 🍀22. Those you love should be a daily priority ❤
🍀23. Hanger is a true emotion - avoid at all costs. 🍀24. The endorphin rush after a solid sweaty workout is a fantastic feeling 💪
🍀25. You can learn the same lesson twice.
🍀26. Be kind to yourself - talk to you like you would your best friend. 🍀27. Be boldly, unashamedly YOU. .
Peace out dudes ❤❤❤ Time for a birthday workout before a day of naps, chill time, Podcasts & A walk to start the body clock reset - birthday bliss 🍀🍀#namaste

When life gets tough, the tough get tougher! I may not have the best of everything and this year I may have lost a hell of a lot more than I thought possible but this is my year and these little humans keep me happy and motivated 💎💎💎 #tryingtostaypositive#allihaveisallineed#justbreathe
We live a life that is so busy and we are so caught up in making money, reaching goals, chasing dreams...and there isnt anything wrong with that. But we put our heads down and forget that on the way to those stellar milestones is a life that we completely miss out on. We reach the end destination but have forgotten the path that led us there. By then our kids have outgrown us and we have lost people near and dear and at the end we have achieved our hearts desires only to yearn for everything we lost in between all alone. These kids take moments. They show us the pace that life should be. They relive their joy and all they want to do is share that with us...it breaks my hearts at the thousands of times I've rushed Abhay through a story or cut him off because I had something else to do!
We live and learn and we need to do better. I am guilty of all of the above...but life has taught me to slow down and cherish what really matters. The rest is icing on a cake once you have really lived with those near and dear. Stop and take it all in!!! #changegearsdown#livelifeinmoments#lifeslessons#beheremore#presentgoals#justbreathe#holdinghands

You never know what a person is dealing with. Don’t be the asshole. I found at one of my weakest moments I nearly took the A-holes out, literally. Over reacting, letting my emotions take over because I was broken and they didn’t know it. How dare they? Right..? But they don’t know me or what I’m fighting through every day. They simply chose against kindness and I retaliated. 2 wrongdoings. Thankfully I didn’t do anything I’d regret, but I did a lot more than I normally do. I know it is because I’ve had about as much as I can take so when a kind gesture is made it spreads a sense of comfort, that the world does go on. You will never heal through anger. You heal with kindness. #bekind#widowproblems#stayincheck#justbreathe 💜

Tonight I’ll be joined here with almost 750ppl as we step into the stillness and appreciate an evening of community, connection & quiet.
Over the past 18 months this community has started to create something really special, something that unites us, something that quietens us. And tonight will be one more link on the chain that connects us.
Beyond humbled to be launching our spring series with the @britishmuseum , never thought we’d have such a space to turn the lights up together.
See you tonight Breathers, doors open at 6:15p #britishmuseum#justbreathe
Less gossip and more communication is needed to sort problems in this beautiful world we live in. If you hear something about anyone. Don’t spread it, instead talk to the person and sort it out. Create peace not problems 💕🌟🙌🏼🤗🙏😇🌟💕
