There are so many of us who without knowing it are hypnotized with the mental images of a life they wish to have and still don’t have.
To think about what “should” happen in your life is truly a waste of your precious time and the easiest way to get lost in the sea of false thoughts and illusory beliefs.
In order to achieve that which you think “should happen” in your life you must focus on the present. What is happening right now for you? Is it what you want, or would you like to change it? If you want to change something YOU MUST LIVE THE NEW CIRCUMSTANCE IN THE PRESENT, not as something that should happen but as something that ALREADY happened.
In other words, you must learn to live and experience your ideal world INTERNALLY, because this is the only way YOUR WORLD CAN PROJECT ITSELF EXTERNALLY.
When you are in the ‘shoulds’, nothing truly happens with those wishes of yours. These are EMPTY WISHES without enough energetic POWER to make them MATTER. Imagine yourself as the protagonist of that which SHOULD happen in your life, but IMAGINE YOURSELF IN THE PRESENT, NOT IN THE FUTURE.
Enjoy every second of the life you now have, even when externally it still doesn’t look so bright and abundant as you intend. Don’t worry; IT WILL BECOME WHAT YOU WANT IT TO BE SOON!
For now, what truly matters, is what is SECRETLY going inside of you, what you are SECRETLY feeling with your Heart and what you are SECRETLY thinking with your mind.
Are you fully aware of what you are feeling and thinking right now? This is the key to your self-liberation… 💗🌸
It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.
I just want to take some time out to be grateful...this Friday I delivered my first group workshop to a wonderful group of ladies @pineappledancestudios
I was definitely nervous beforehand, but the workshop was shaped around identity, confidence, limiting beliefs & verbal & non-verbal communication/body language. So I had to 'walk it like I talk it' (Migos taught me). In any industry how you come across is extremely important, but in certain spheres you have to project your best self as soon as you step into a room. Dance is definitely one of those areas, so I just wanted to thank @unapologetic.uk
& all the ladies who came with an open heart, open mind & who fully participated in the workshop. In life we have to act 'as if' or as @amycuddy
says 'fake it till you become it'...I know I was certainly doing the above!! I really just want to encourage you to dream BIG, don't limit yourself, don't let your mindset hold you back - YOU have the power to achieve anything, the only thing that can hold you back from greatness is you. One of the questions I asked was "what would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?" Make sure your goals are BIG enough & if you're thinking small, change your mindset. Expect greatness from yourself & put in the work - You've got this!! #selffulfillingprophecy #greatness #mindset #selftalk #selfimprovement #confidence #identity #dance #pineapplestudios #unapologetic #aliciastratford #lifecoach #millennial #dreams #migos #walkitlikeitalkit
You shouldn’t seek validation from others. There is always going to be someone prettier, thinner, smarter, and more talented. It’s important to learn to love yourself for who you are, not what you desire to be. Learn to look in the mirror and be satisfied with who you are. #learningtolovemyself #selflove #selfimprovement

This article is for student nurses. Student nurses are the future of nursing and I believe they are not supported enough in 2 main phases. The first is when they have not started studying nursing, so they do not know what to expect, what the real world of nursing means. The second is during the studies, when they are not supported in understanding the responsibility we held in front of the patient, the community, the society. I feel like they are just thrown into the cage with lions and ‘let them deal with it’. Many quit, many do not know, many were not ready. Not anybody can be a nurse, student nurses sometimes they have to be told that as well. When they think they can get away with the empathy and the compassion of our job something is just not right and it’s up to the present nurses doing that. I commit to support them before and during the studies, mentoring and advising them for free, so that they can have a somebody they can rely on when they need. Probably I could give them that insight of what nursing means, our role in the society and the importance of our colleagues.
Enjoy the reading! Have the best day of your life! .

Beauty, just like life, is temporary. People age, people die.
If beauty, fashion and having the perfect figure makes you happy and you want to dedicate your life to it then by all means go ahead, you aren't judged.
However if you struggle with self esteem, if you go through life hating how you look, comparing yourself to a social ideal, if you feel like you aren't worthy because you don't look a certain way then STOP.
We are temporary beings. We are each given a shell to carry our souls through our time on earth. We are all wonderfully unique. We can accept our shells or we can battle our whole lives trying to make it look a certain way.
And for what?
Imagine people gather at your funeral, clutching their snotty tissues with tears rolling down their cheeks. They hold each other and sob sharing how they remember you.
'Ah she was a nice girl, lovely teeth.'
'I'll always remember her beautiful, flawless makeup.'
'Its such a shame, she had such a great sense of fashion.'
'She had such a perfect figure. Her thigh gap was to die for!'
Really? Is that how you want to be remembered?
You may be remembered for looking a certain way but more importantly is how you are remembered for being YOU.
If we all dedicated our lives to improving our souls instead of our shells then the world would be a much more beautiful place to be.
If we cared more about love.
If we cared more about kindness.
If we cared more about self acceptance.
If we cared more about strength of character.
If we cared more about humility.
If we cared more about who we are as a person and not about what we look like then we would be one step closer to creating a world worth living in.
Celebrate your shell not for what it looks like but for what it carries.
It carries YOU.
Take your shell, nourish it, care for it, respect it, love it because it has given the world the chance to see who you are, not what you look like.
Show them all the beauty of your soul. Shine bright from within.
Your are so more than just your shell.

One of the books I’m currently reading is called “Happy”, by @fearnecotton.
She explores the idea of getting trapped searching for happiness in the extraordinary parts of life. She describes that if we are not feeling the “best we ever have”, we can quickly swing back to feeling crappy. So even, if you feel pretty decent, the comparison of yourself to the happiest you’ve felt, causes you to feel worse than you really do..and the pendulum swings back to feeling unhappy. She suggests that finding your happy is about looking for joy in everyday experiences and that this is the key to preventing this dark, and often cyclical pattern.
It made me think that there is likely the same pattern for how we view our self-worth each day. For example, do you ever have a decently productive day, but didn’t get everything done you wanted to…and then start feeling like your lazy? We put labels on ourselves about “how good” we are each day and tend to forget to pat ourselves on the back for the things we actually do, critiquing ourselves for what we didn’t do. We discount evidence of our accomplishments and our focus shifts to what we feel we didn’t do well enough. .
A similar trap occurs…and your self-worth takes a hit. It’s important to try to stop this pendulum from swinging so drastically. It’s not about having perfect days, it’s about having good enough days and telling yourself you are good enough, no matter what your day looked like.
Think about kids…they will try anything they are curious about and feel really proud of themselves for it, purely because of the effort they put in, regardless of the result. Imagine being as proud of yourself each day as a 4-year-old is of their first gloriously, messy painting. So on your days labeled as mediocre, don’t let the pendulum swing…remind yourself that you are putting in a good enough effort, every single day and that is definitely something to be proud of!✨🙌🏼 #goodenough #goodmorning #goodvibesonly #goodenoughvibes
If you haven't journaled yet, try journaling at the end of your Sundays. It helps to get your thoughts out and the best thing about journaling is that you can write whatever you want in them. Get what's going on in you mind out on paper, you'll be surprised how relieved you'll feel mentally. Hope everyone had a good Sunday and is ready to work hard this week. 😄
Something to end this Sunday on.
The wolf is regarded as one of the most powerful spirit guides of all and it's presence is a message of guidance. When the wolf is your spirit animal, it means that you are a loyal and trustworthy person. When you need to embrace order in your life - call on the wolf as your totem animal. Totem animal expression this upcoming Sunday. Still a few tickets left. Link in bio➡️
Honour the struggle you're facing .
Watch this short video to discover the 2 words that will impact your life for good. 😱
Act like people are always watching you. Don't care about what others think of you but be an amazing role model. Set an example for the younger generations, set an example by working hard and showing them how it's done. Don't do unethical stuff.
Knights will always embrace failure. It will lead to you successes.

If you can walk your talk you'll get ahead. If you can do the things you say you're going to do, great things will happen.
If your actions speak louder than your mouth, you'll be unstoppable. Some people talk and talk but never do anything, don't be that person. Do what you say you're going to do 🙏 #walkyourtalk
Salads have never been my thing and personally I think iceberg lettuce is the devil but that just me 👀 So I tend to opt for spinach and lots of it.
I mixed spinach, red onion, fat free @hidden.valley
ranch dressing, crispy onions then topped with chicken and siracha mayo! Also topped the chicken with ‘everything but the bagel’ seasoning and damnnnnnn 😋 📊
P - 48.7 grams C - 16.6 grams F - 9.2 grams
I wanted something light but next time I may carb up to make a fuller meal, any combinations this salad dodger needs to try?!

If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept In life, you’ll find it’s easy to slip into behaviours and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve.
