It Starts With You!

Filters, selfies, likes, validation and ego's... we've become a self obsessed culture, these things will fill up your short term happiness but in the long term they will leave you feeling empty seeking out your next set of validation... it will NEVER lead to long term happiness within yourself.

Posting a selfie every now then is a good thing because my gosh you look damn cute, the world needs to see that beauty of yours and that validation might just be the perfect pick me up on a bad day. Adding a filter once in awhile adds that freakin' cool creative flare and can make for a great laugh however it's important every now and then to question Why am I posting this? Is it adding value? What am I seeking?. If your soul purpose and reasoning is about likes, validation and ego you need to check and work on yourself not your social media because your long term happiness starts with you... doing what you love, being who you are, living by your values and facing your demons. Long lasting happiness will never be found through the validation of the online realm or for a matter of fact in others in general, it starts with YOU!

Build Your Foundations!

https://nz.pinterest.com/pin/24910604170438409/

Brick by brick, day by day build your foundations for a strong base in whatever you do because everything you do steams from it. While cutting corners may seem to save time in the short run however you never know just when a storm may hit.

Building a solid foundation yes takes a lot of time but when a storm hits you may wobble, crack and break down but never fall completely apart. The things you have learnt, grown and built through those times of building a solid foundation will help you through the storm, through the hopelessness and in rebuilding. It pays to spend time building your foundations as solid as possible in whatever you do but most importantly starting with you!

Dress Up, Show Up And Never Give Up!

Dress up, show up and never give up... by showing up and never giving up in the event of life you'll have the chance and ability to win. While time and time again you'll be challenged, thrown in the mud and struggling to make it through you will however always gain by showing up and never throwing in the towel. Each and every time time you show up to the event of life that shit stands for something, it stands for the little acts that add up to big things, the big things of winning your life, winning your dreams and the things you so desire. 

If you never show up for the event of life, for your dreams or for simply anything you would like to achieve you will never have the chance or ability to win. Do what you have to do to make sure you show up, never give up and well you might as well do it in some badass style too! ;)

Dear Legs!


"You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible"
- Deepak Chopra
Dear Legs,

You've seen massive purple stretch marks, cellulite, screaming voices of disgust and worthlessness, scissors, blood and scars from a tortuous past, from battles that had everything to do with you and nothing at all. From a girl who stood in a mirror feeling physically sick at her reflection in which it was morphed and fucked up to the point she couldn't even tell you which way was up, she was sick, weak and dying... to a girl that can squat and deadlift her body weight and being in love and incredibly amazed and proud of her strength.

I felt ashamed and disgusted of you from an early age and at one point took photos of you trying to see what everyone else saw and being insanely terrified of what you would turn into if I was to survive. I may of found my love for your ability and strength early on in my fitness and transformation process but the love of when I saw you was slow and I still struggled with you often, you still morphed in a matter of seconds. I took a photo of you about a year ago and still I cried, I knew you and I had continuous tortuous battles that spanned more than a decade, yet again battles that had everything to do with you and nothing at all. I decided to stop looking at you and to trust the process, I continued to thrash you hard and ate well, I grew you and leaned you down. I focused on my journey of self love and your ability, strength, putting my pain into power and for the pure love of physical pain, enjoyment and health.

I decided to take a photo of you the other day and I felt proud and in disbelief, it was strange and beautiful to feel all kinds of love for you. I know you and I will still have our struggles but we've grown, we're growing and well you and I have made it through some pretty gnarly sh!t together, I'm proud of you and I love you for all that you can do and are and I look forward to growing you in many more ways. Dear legs of mine you aren't just legs you're warriors and a canvas of pain into power and strength!

With love
Rainbow :) xoxo
