Your 2017 Review
Were you nice to yourself?
When you criticise yourself, judge what you said (or didn't say), speak insultingly about your thighs or your creations, you miss the moment.
You miss the nuances - the way the light falls across your child's face. The birdsong. The tinkle of laughter in the other room. The exquisite curve of your back.
You miss it because you're distracted, wrestling with yourself.
So what do you want to feed this year, self-love or self-loathing? #dailymoxie#mandylehto#2017#selflove#appreciation
As we grow, we shape shift ✨ people closest or not as close... may notice... form an opinion, accept or possibly judge. It’s okay to change. To grow UP and OUT of a younger you✨ Embrace, the person you are becoming. It’s not about being for others what they think you are. Honor who are you now ... and let the apologies fall to the waste side with those who don’t understand your transformation. Grow like a wild flower and be the most uniquely authentic, perfectly imperfect ... YOU. #noapologies

love is inside you. It is up to you to manifest It. We have always a choice .
Today started out intense and stressful. I woke with fear and anxiety because I had to compete in a business pitch contest.
One was an individual pitch and the second pitch was with a group. On my way to the event I told myself I couldn't do it so I told myself I was going to opt out of mine, but I will push through for the group pitch because I didn't want to let them down.
I spent the even rehearsing with them, completely removed from the thought of mine,
but when we got to the event I felt my entire being telling me I can do it. I wrestle with my thoughts for a bit, but then I decided I was not going to let my fear and anxiety stop me.
I decided to push myself inspite of the fear...so I pushed through and I did it, not just one pitch but BOTH OF THEM ! I felt so amazing after, I stood infront of the judges and the entire audience, and I did the damn thing.
The fear was powerful but I had to remind myself that my strength and power is a 1000 times greater!
We all have moments of doubt and fear, but we are beyond capable of letting the fear know it cannot and will not drown out our power!
All is well. Today was a great day! 💛
✨Resilience✨So we dress for the weather... We wrap up and protect ourselves to be able to sustain the environment around us. Imagine we approached all of life like this!? If we "dressed" for life and knew we could CHOOSE a coat of 'self worth' and a wrap of 'gratitude', a vest of 'compassion' and a hat/crown of 'perspective' we would be able to sustain and navigate every storm better! What are you going to actively choose to wear to be resilient in your life??
Good morning Stars
Sometimes you just have to encourage yourself....

Following my heart even when it goes against the grain and believing in myself has at times put me on lonely roads. Nevertheless, I stayed strong and kept moving forward because my choices actually made me happier. Doing the things I love holds me together. I'm not better than anyone. I'm simply working on bettering myself; to be a good human being. I'm not in competition with anyone except myself. 🙏
2017- 3 big lessons on reflection.
1- Some major decluttering in my life. If you bring energy that is negative or damaging to my life, I can and will shut you out. Keep that crap away from me!
2-Training my body to make good and strong what I have; to challenge myself, play and enjoy the process. Walt Disney was right. “Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional”. 3-Meticulous grooming of the inside. I feel lighter, brighter and a better person for it. However, there's always room for improvement. 🙏
I'm happy to go forth alone on this path. I’m in good company - honestly.
I'm walking away from drama, gossip, fake love, negativity etc… Not caring about what you think of me. If you've taken any offence in reading this then maybe I'm speaking to you.
I'll trust this journey of mine and keep moving forward. Carrying my bag with my gi and sh*t loads of positivity. 🙏
Today is here NOW ❤️
Have a beautiful day ❤️
Just Mimi ❤️
🐛Day 14: 10 Years Ago🦋
It’s funny that this prompt came up because I’ve been reflecting on that time in my life a lot lately and all of the shifts and emotions and growth and realisations I’ve had since then. 10 Years ago I was in a relationship with a man who didn’t want to be with me and didn’t show up and I used to cry to my sister and friends about him but I stayed because I didn’t want to be alone. He cheated on me and told me about it and I remember literally being on my hands and knees crying and BEGGING him not to leave me! When I think about that girl (let’s face it, at 25 in that state I wasn’t really a woman) I don’t even recognise her. Today I’m able to have conscious intentional conversations in relationship, I’m able to show up fully for myself and hold space for others. I take time to process my emotions, I ask for support from those closest to me and I am open to receive it (and I do). Life isn’t always perfect and I still have fears around being alone but they are quickly alleviated because I KNOW I’m NEVER alone. I have my tribe and most importantly, I have ME and that WOMAN is pretty great!
Remember wherever you are on that journey, to look back sometimes and see how far you’ve come. You might be surprised to see it’s a LONG way 💕
