Did you miss it??
We are into July this signifies that you made it halfway through the year!!
Yep, that’s right we are about to dip our toes into the second half of the year already.
I’m always amazed at how quickly time flies by and every time I write these words it’s my reminder to come back and remember to be present in the moment and indeed present in my life.
I’m a dreamer, always looking ahead and imagining the future and setting goals for what I want to come, but this is also my reminder to slow down and just be here in the present movement and day to day of life.
Because life is happening right here, right now, it’s there in the smallest of moments.
“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time — past and future — the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” ― Eckhart Tolle
So if you were to take a moment and consider.
Did you decide that this was the year that you would be working on you. Your health, your fitness, to feel better in your body?
How’s that been going??
I know it’s so easy to get off track, we all do it.
But you know you can always trust me to come back in and remind you to come back to those goals if they are still important to you

Why Most People Fail
Many people fail to connect to what a goal really means to them, they fail to dig into the deeper reasons why they want something.
How that ‘thing’ aligns with your values, your deeper meaning and purpose.
If you don’t have a powerful why that becomes your navigating north star, then sure you are going to be distracted by the next shiny thing.
And it’s even easier to get distracted when the thing you were working towards didn’t happen….like yesterday!!
That’s yet another flaw of human behaviour. Our need for instant gratification and the search of the constant dopamine hit, instead of practising patience for long-term satisfaction.
To actually find lessons and strength as you grow through the journey. It’s so freaking cheesy, but the joy is in the journey itself and never actually in the achievement of the goal.
Sure reaching that goal will feel good for the moment, but it’s being able to see and realise what it took to get you there that will last with you a lifetime.
So as you look ahead stop stressing about how fast you are advancing and instead take a moment to consider how you are showing up.
Are you showing up with focus, with a positive can-do attitude, are you keeping going no matter what challenges you face.
Are you happy with the person that you are showing up as?
Start the day deciding to show up as your highest and best self, then the goals tend to take care of themselves.
Now consider the following questions:
- What do you still want to achieve this year and into the future?
- Write out all of the goals that still feel aligned to your soul desires and re-connect with the reasons why.
- What do you want to create?
- What do you want to acquire?
- What do you want to experience?
- What do you want to learn?
- What do you want to improve?
- What do you want to maintain?
