:: Clocked 11,323 days or turned 31 years old this week. Who even counts in years? :: #PleaseGiveMeMamasGenes #CantWinAtCroppingPhotos . @thebutcherssonnz is 100% my new fave, all plant-based menu. In-sane! 🌱 #addicted . A few days ago, I found the notes I wrote down when I was in hospital last year, the day before my 30th birthday. I often say to patients that pain is a request for change. I’ll ask ‘if I took your pain away tomorrow, would you be 100%?’ If the answer is no, which it always is, then what CAN you change? . Last year I asked myself the same questions - work, stress, training, sleep, relationships with others and myself, routines etc. I asked myself ‘What is wrong with my life?’ I wrote the honest answer. Then ‘Why?’ Lastly, I wrote goals and actions to rectify them. I actually lost that list until last week but reflecting back - I’ve changed nearly all of them which IS progress. When we only focus on the end point, we forget we are in the action of what we are trying to achieve (progress / recovery / success / fulfilment). Sometimes we focus so much on ‘being healed’ that we forget that we ARE ‘healing.’ . 📹 YouTube. The Importance of a Breakdown | @theschooloflifelondon. “A breakdown is not merely a random piece of madness or malfunction. It’s a very real, albeit very inarticulate bid FOR HEALTH. It is an attempt by one part of our minds to force the other into a process of growth, self-understanding and self-development…it’s an attempt to jumpstart a process of getting well.” . 📚 Book. Body Wise - Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams. “Inside each one of us, right now is an innate wisdom that can give us specific feedback on how life affects us - from the medicines we take, to the food we eat, to the work we do, to the relationships we have. We need to pay close attention to the clues that our bodies give us to navigate our health and health care.” . . . #selfdevelopment #selfawareness #growthmindset #practicemakesprogress #physio #birthdaygirl #reflections #healyourself #bodywise #holistichealth #health #plantbased #auckland #thebutchersson

After my car broke down earlier this week, I had to leave it behind. Instead of calling a cab I decided to walk home. This street that I had driven up & down so many times...usually full of traffic, was calm & peaceful late at night. I decided to cross the usually busy street using the overpass although I could've just walked across the road in the early hours of the AM cause it was so quiet. I didn't feel crept out at all. In fact, there was something very peaceful about being out late at night...even tho I was alone. I stopped on the overpass just to take in the air & the oh so familiar view. The same road that I traveled everyday, but just from a different view. The city lights. The quietness of the night. It was so beautiful that I had to take a pic. Long walk & time to reflect, I thought to myself...if we just slow down & take the time to look around once in a while, we might notice the beauty that has been there all along. Sometimes we get bored of the familiar. Or take things like having a car or a job for granted. Heck, I was just thankful that I had feet & legs that could carry me home when my car couldn't. Life just gets too crazy sometimes...some are racing the clock...some, chasing the dollar...some are always looking for something better & can't appreciate what they have. Sometimes by just slowing down...or changing the angle of the lens, we might be able to capture a whole new beauty that we never noticed before...even tho the landscape hasn't changed. Whether life is "good" or "bad" doesn't depend on what the Universe sends our way. It's really all about how we respond to the circumstances we face. Appreciate what you have. There is so much to live for. And life is such a precious gift. #reflections #appreciatelife #positivethinking #thinkpositive #livehappy #behappy #lovelife #goodvibes #inspiration #stop #lookaroundyou #life
