words from my very wise and beautiful friend lori jai harding:
i believe that we are all in charge of our own happiness. happiness doesn’t come easily; it is something you have to continually work at, adjusting aspects of your life you can change, and accepting the parts you cannot. but it is also okay not to feel completely happy all the time and accept that everyone must experience challenges, and ultimately, pain, because without challenge and pain, you cannot grow, or learn. parenthood is a very strange cocktail of both. pure, unlimited happiness and joy that fills you up like nothing else, and many, many life lessons and challenges that push you well past your limits. but that’s the point isn’t it. to push you. to make you stronger.
treasure yourself project
lori has started the “treasure yourself perfect”, it is truly amazing and something that everyone needs to get involved in.it’s an 8 week program, with the main point being – be the very best person you can be. it has only been live for a few days and already had over 700 ladies on facebook eagerly wanting to be motivated and inspired.
it’s amazing how just a few encouraging words can set you back on the right track. i know at the moment i am working huge hours, i work in the afl and our team plays every weekend so work never slows down during the season, i am also organizing our engagement party which is on saturday (hooray) as well as organinng our wedding in bali. trying to juggle time with my family, finace and beautiful friends is proving a little tricky. plus the whole getting the wedding body into shape needs to fit in there somewhere.
this project has come at a seriously perfect time, who doesn’t want to be the very best person they can be? i know i don’t want to take anything for granted and sometimes we need a gentle reminder to say, we have a beautiful home, we have a family that adores us, we have friends that would do absolutely anything for us and best of all we have great jobs and love that goes to the moon and back. it’s easy to complain and sweat the small stuff like traffic or meetings or bills or a messy house. but really in the scheme of things, is it that important?
i encourage you to jump on over to eight ten ten to find out all the details from lori right here. what have you got to lose right?
