Floral Frolicking In The Sun

Over the weekend the weather was glorious,  the sun was shining high, meaning Ice lollies (some of you may know about my addiction to twister) and we made our way to the park. Perfect way to spend a day :)

Life Bites| Motivation & The Next Steps

Well its been a while since I've written a post life/ general as I found the formula to the 'active prepared life' series that I began writing about you can find that here. The next steps are really about regular and consistent application across multiple spectrums, which I hope I will be able to do with 'Life Bites'.

So now its all about motivation, I'm the type of person who goes through peaks and troths, but its imperative for success to remain motivated...or is it? I genuinely don't believe that people can be motivated all the time. Its about learning to know when your in a valley 'down time' and identifying how to get out of it.

The main point of motivation is the reach a goal, target or an achievement. Ive shared mine below:

1. My body
Its ok, but it could be better, I love my food, regular, fatty, carby and lots of it. My exercise, well thats another story, I try, but I fail with being consistent with it.

2. Work life balance
I don't do rest, I feel like if Im not working on something, I'm being slack or lazy, and it makes me frustrated, but I struggle to  make time for things that count. I also end up crashing.

3.Anxiety
Due to my constant focus on achievement, and worrying what I haven't done, I get can getvery anxious,

Why have I shared this....I believe  'Write the vision down making it plain so that he that reads it may run with it' Habakkuk 2:2

Basically, writing targets down make it tangible and there is more of a chance that something can be done about it.
First steps of motivation is defining what you want to work towards..and actually its just made me smile because I  believe EVERYTHING is possible.

So some steps that help me with motivation:

1. Surround myself with motivating inspiration. Things such as people, songs, foods, words and images

2. When Im feeling un-motivated, I come back to the target, re-read and I'm inspired by my own thoughts

3. Find a co-signer. who is in your team? Who will encourage you? It may be friends, family, it may not be, it may be anonymous people on a blog but connect with like minded folk

4. Get excited. The possibilities are there, they are tangible and real. Get that feeling of butterflies when you are standing in front of the door to opportunity that is about to open in a few seconds

5. MOVE. DO IT. STEP. NOW. GO. RUN. Stop thinking about being motivated and start doing it, nothing will happen without your first action

I'll be working on the few thing noted above, they are just an outline, but I will share my progress on the blog

Have a great day!

So I'm a lipstick girl, sadly I'm not the most daring so I usually stick to neutral tones (besides a red here and there). Here are some of my great choices for lipsticks which I think a great nude options for darker skin tones.
