As an introvert, I used to always criticize myself and try to force myself to be more “outgoing”. We did tests in school, and if you tested as introvert, you were “encouraged” to try and be more extroverted & adventurous. But it never felt natural for me and after years of beating myself up about it, one day I stopped trying to be someone that I’m not. As an entrepreneur, it is crucial for me to network & mix and mingle, and don’t get me wrong, I LOVE meeting new people, especially those who share my passion for living an amazing life. However, I realized that after interacting with a lot of people or in a fast paced environment, I feel extremely drained. I often need a day or 2 of me time to re-center myself.
To all my fellow introverts, it doesn’t mean that we don’t have goals and dreams! It doesn’t mean that we aren’t risk takers. It also doesn’t mean that we can’t live life big and bold! It simply means that we are more sensitive and feel a lot more than others, so our energy is easily depleted. We have to find balance, and anytime that you push yourself out of your comfort zone, you also need to find time to center yourself and refill your energy. Nourish who you are!

Did you know that #Gisborne, @purenewzealand is one of the first cities to see the dawn? Twice now I’ve been there and twice now I’ve gotten up at least once during my stay to drive out to #WainuiBeach to watch the #sunrise! It’s always spectacular. One of my favourite things about watching the sunrise at a beach is that the surfers do too. They stop, they sit on their boards, and they face the sun. It’s like a ritual and it’s so calming to watch
I’ve been thinking a lot about #meditation and calming exercises.. I lead a pretty run around life and there are days that I don’t take five minutes for myself. I even work while I’m at the #gym
If you’re into meditation, breathing exercises, or something similar, do you have any recommendations for me?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!!
Great BLESSED morning 🌏🌎🌍. TGIF 👐👐👐. Thank God I'm Forgiven !!! I began today with a Grateful 💜💜, because I know someone didnt awaken this morning. Thank You Father. I dropped our Princess off at school....mailed orders off, now back at home spoiling my Grand Puppies before I get BACK to work. I do more before 8 am I tell ya....Our kids are the Reason we are BOTH Self Employed...these are the times I LIVE for....the talks we have, the moments we share. I couldn't do these things sitting in my OLD Office at the Hospital. NO MORE Missing Out on Moments you can NEVER recapture. If you WANT it BAD enough. MAKE IT HAPPEN......I did. Plan...Prepare....Implement !!! Take a moment to Smile at someone....I've began doing it Constantly... I'm AMAZED at the Response...a Smile truly has the POWER to Change the Course of someone's day.....Including yours. I hope you ALL have a Fantastic Friday. Until later.....

I have the right to be happy with God ☝️😇.People might see me happy but they don’t know what I’ve been through a lot lately! At the end of the day I will be the one who will cross the bridge and you don’t have any idea how much pain I am enduring every night. So let us be happy and not grow weary for the Lord is righteous and just. I am responsible of my own emotions and actions. Be happy and let God wants you to be! #rejoicewiththelordalways#happiness#peacefullife#blessed#thankful😇#Healingtime
Peace loving people @sonaliwrites - The day which shook me up in a way that once it was gone I couldn't trace it, except these pictures.
Shook in a way that I was awaken, awaken from the sleep of anxiety and depression. Awaken to the dawn of what all is being missed in this unpredictable life.
I opened my eyes to the beauty of all that was around, and I found myself in the Ruth fullness of what I have done to my body and soul for all this time. I deprived myself of all the harmony and freedom of thoughts I deserved. I deprived myself of serenity due to acts of people and let them consume my thoughts.
But, till this day. There was this moment of magic I woke up to. And in this moment I realized that all I am supposed to do is fly and appreciate what's all lying around.
In this moment I realised that if I owe anything to anyone, that is me to this nature.
I accepted what's been thrown to me and I decided to move on.
The day I traveled from total mess to total peace.
