Sometimes we need to start over.  How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly? By hibernating and taking time to grow and form but you don't see that process. Did you know the caterpillar digests and dissolves itself to start the process of becoming a butterfly? We are the same. Sometimes we need to strip back down to basics - sometimes in order for you to get to the next step you need to take a step away and work on the internal - like every new project you need to start from the beginning. Don't kick yourself if you've hit a Plato, if you can't come up with a new idea or your struggling to find motivation - Maybe all you need is your cocoon. We're not immortal we can't go on forever and as much as I'd like, we don't have a quick charge port to push ourselves back up to 100% lol but we do have the ability to rest and clear our mind. Remember everything takes time, dont let social media platforms convince you otherwise.  Take as much time as you need - its not a waste of time to step away to recharge or power down for abit because thats PART OF THE PROCESS to ensure the quality of how you spend your time holds value.

It's been alot longer than I planned to step aside from YouTube but slowly my motivation and creativity is coming back...So trust me when I say its ok to press pause, JUST never stop. 
On a side note I wish i was winding down on a beach as I was here lol 
Have a good day & rest of the week however you need to

Today's World Mental Health Day   If I look back over the past 8 years its blows my mind the power the mind has and what it can do.  8 years ago Anxiety & Depression crashed & burned right into the centre of my dangling confidence. I woke up with no energy to do anything; everything took longer to think about & needed much more attention to detail than need be.  My worry had heightened & being safe was my haven and safe usually meant being by myself, locked away with my thoughts.  I’d push those close to me, away in fear that I was destructing them & bringing negativity around them, when in hine sight, pushing them away did that anyway. 
Supporting someone who is struggling is important but UNDERSTANDING is the most important thing; a lot of people walked away or distanced from me in those times because they simply didn’t agree or understand why my mind could not just switch back to positive happy mode. Because they found it easy to do so, that I am in control of my mind frame & I can change it at any time, that it was pathetic & not something they felt required attention.  It was comments like that that pushed me to trying to commit suicide several times.

The power of words is really strong. Anyone's mental health can detoriate. Anyones. Always be kind. Always offer support. Don't take anything to personal  peoples actions are a reflection of their situation & mental state. It's ok not to be ok. None of us are perfect.  Where I was & where I am today is insane.  Some days are good some days are bad some days you feel like you can take on the world & some days you just want to hide from it & that's how we work as humans. It's ok not to be ok. There are people who love you & care. Try not to focus on the ones who lack the ability to show you & focus on the love around you and WITHIN you.

If your going through difficult times currently & feel theres no hope & no light i promise there is. I know that feeling way to well but i PROMISES there is hope. There is light. It is there. You may just have to tap around the room to find the light switch...
Please never give up

These are my Two Moods - how you treat me determines which you get  well..it used to be.

I think we often forget we're in control of our moods.  We often get so effected by energies, surroundings or circumstances so quickly, any of these things snatches control of our mood. You know me I like to analysis and delve deep into thought and a habit ive made is if something snatches control of my mood I try to understand why and snatch it back. It just has or it just annoyed/upset me is not an answer. 
Theres always a root. Why did it take control of my mood and adjust it..? The answer always ends up being the hardest truth. You let it. You gave it control.  No one forced you to hand it over. Because originally you are in control of YOU which means YOUR in control of your moods - its just easier to pass blame to something external.  We work so hard for ownership of external things because we think that's where happiness lies but yet we don't take ownership of something we already own. 
Imagine taking ownership of the one thing that effects us every day, the thing that determines how we feel and how the rest of our day goes.  Magic happens when we feel good; were happier more productive more focused...so many mores - so why do you not take control?

Make it an aim this month to be concious of what your giving control to and see the beautiful shift that happens when you take back the reins in to your own hands. *p.s. I missed a trick here because I couldn't think of a good vs caption (e.g. when you see Bae vs when you see Bae with someone else)

So think of one for me best one wins an invisible prize

Balance is something I have always lacked. I find something and it gets my 100%. But all the other stuff gets...neglected. Giving one thing 100% is only going to result in an imbalance.
We don't often see the imbalances in our lives because we're so preoccupied - were not really aware of where our energy goes, what our time goes on, what we do and don't do.

This weekend I was kind of forced to rest, was told to just focus on relaxing and take it easy - to cancel work - which if you know me is a big NO in my life because it spirals me into a mindframe of im wasting time this isnt productive but little to say I realised how much I missed it. How much I needed it.
 It's made me reflect alot on how much I cram into a week and taking the rose coloured glasses off has made me realise its really not healthy. At all.  It's good to have time to wind down and equally time to yourself. 
Its hard when you've got adult responsibilities like paying bills feeding yourself and then chasing a dream outside a 9-5. I get it. It temps you to go full frottle and be on the go 24/7 but it's equally as important to find that balance so you can recharge be happy and generally be able to function. 
It's a learning curve and imbalances are learnt behaviours / habits - I know I'll probably dip back in and out of the imbalance at some stage but what's important is being AWARE of our actions as when we're aware we can make a conscious effort to make a change right? 
How balanced is your life? Are you aware of your imbalances? °•

The Ugly Dumplings
Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. How often is what you say in line with what you actually think and do?  Not for the sake of others but for your own well being? If ever these three things are not aligned, work on focusing to align them...true happiness should be one of everyone's main focuses. Nothing can bring you happiness - only yourself. Everything your working on and towards isnt worth it if your not LEADING it with happiness, because if its not led with happiness - what's the point?

How well do you know yourself? 
Being aware of why we feel the way we feel and why we do the things we do is so important.  I've spent the past couple of years really trying to be aware. Aware of my thoughts, why I find myself thinking and feeling the way I do in the moment and working out the triggers. Aware of my actions and if what im doing is led by habit or emotions.  Aware of my surroundings and practicing appreciation. Just aware.
Ever heard the quote 'Awareness allows us to get out of our mind and observe it in action'? Alot of us are stuck in our head but don't even know we're stuck because we're not aware.  Alot of us will turn to someone else to help us figure out how to understand ourselves - physical symptoms emotions behaviours before turning within.  I'm an advocate for help - seek it where you need to..But you can't expect someone to be able to help you when you dont know yourself...thoroughly. 'that annoys me' - why? 'That's upset me' - why? ' That made me smile' why? 'It just has' ... isnt an answer...It's a instance reaction that means I dont really understand why.  And you should. 
Ask why more. Understand yourself.  It's a part of your healing and your growth...When you understand something you can implement what you know to the situation - imagine what you'd be capable of, if you knew all about yourself - what assists you, what knocks you, how to manage your emotions - the same amount as that Netflix series or that book.. You always have a choice but its also your choice which one you take...

I remember looking at this wall thinking how sick it looked with all the random stickers and how each sticker in its own individuality makes the overall wall aesthetically pleasing and has bought together the overall art.  It's kind of like our mind...we have loads of thoughts and ideas and sometimes it doesn't cross our mind to mix them together - we spend time fixated on one thought/idea and kick ourself when we cant expand it into a full blown idea. Try next time if your having a creative block with an idea - gather all your thoughts down (I write all mine down so I can also look at old thoughts also) and who knows...those thoughts could mix together a new flavour you really like... Hope you've had an amazing Weekend and have a restful Sunday evening

Raining outside but toasty inside. Lounging Mornings in @livelookloud new lounge set - could I ask for much more? 
Fun fact, I’ve taken this picture so many times over the past few weeks because I was being way to judgemental of what I looked like and I had to have a firm talk with myself to which, with the universes power, I came across a quote that really hit a cord; it read that our body is not our art, but our paintbrush – whether your paintbrush is tall, thin, stocky, thick it is completely irrelevant. What is relevant is that we have a paintbrush that transfers the internal; our knowledge, wisdom, life lessons, experiences and personality, onto the canvas of our life. It enables us to dip into our inner colours to paint our stories in the beautifully imperfect way they are, where others can see it and be inspired and comforted by it. 
Stop being so harsh and judgemental on yourself (talking to myself aswell)– perfect does not exist - embrace being imperfectly perfect

Hello 28 
Its the most important day of the yeaaarrr 
Reflecting today, the older I get the more secure I feel, not particularly with life goals..as we all know (but dont know) our 20s are the chapters to not know whats happening half the time, trying to figure it all out to put all the building blocks together, but more so my secureness is internal. I may not have my dream job or my dream house or dream lifestyle YET but I know thats all on its way. Its mine. Fact. But I feel more secure in myself than I ever have before and what a beautiful feeling it is.

Acceptance that were not all perfect and thats fine our originals are amazing, that if my internal is flourishing the outside will follow, that nothing is permanent and everything is in the moment so to enjoy every moment and not to hold on to anything, that love and gratitude serve us far greater than we know, that understanding, knowing and learning about yourself is the most important foundation to your future and many many more things which ill continue to share in posts to come.

Getting older still scares me dont get me wrong...adulting hello im still a 5 year old at heart lol but the older I get, like everything else ive been fearful of, ive realised its not as daunting but more so exciting as we watch the chapters unfold. 
Stay fearless and thank you for all the birthday wishes so far  °•

This picture is actually a picture from the future as Ill have a Frenchie one day..hes on my list of wants in life 
A big sign of when your close to manifesting what you desire is seeing it or things that represent your want just about every where you go. 
You have to believe you have it already. Dont worry about the how. Follow your initution, make changes to your life where you can to make space for what you want, show gratitude daily for things happening during your day, work towards what you can and remove all doubt and hesitation. You almost have to be in a sense of denial, especially to people around you as thats what feeds our doubt, and thats fine...these are your dreams and wants and if 'denial is your state of mind to others let it be..the end goal of getting what you want is worth far more than people's opinions...
Have an amazing productive week 🤗

Ive come a long way :) Give thanks for how far you've come, how much you've transformed and how much you've evolved daily sometimes we dont see the small changes but those are them little stepping stones that lead us to the next level of growth.

Whats something you've done recently outside your comfort zone that on reflection you've realised promoted growth?

Its amazing how something so simple can make me so happy. Seeing these literally made me light up  We often overlook the small things that make us smile throughout the day because we are too busy focusing on wanting the bigger things we feel are going to bring us happiness but true happiness is often found in simplicity. 
Try and analysis what makes you smile throughout the day and write it down - youll be surprised how many little things have added to you feeling good that you've overlooked, then make sure your adding more of these things into your days ahead, you can be in control and this is a great way to help shift your mood if you need to - You deserve to smile

We often get bored or give up on the old and crave the new so we get rid of the old all together...but sometimes them old gems you have when mixed together with the new can create some magic and in this case..im not talking about music (to the contrary) 
This exact mentality is going into all I work on currently...I guess its a balance right? Something Chyna lacks a little...but were working on it lol 
Dont let go of something just because its gathered abit of dust...revisit it and it may just set a spark off in your world of creativity, speaking from experience...like an old wine, some ideas age well with time...

Memories are the best right? Although this picture may be slightly *cough* staged it made me smile and think how good the times that make us laugh are so amazing to look back on.  This is why im such a camera fiend and if you know me personally you know I always have a video or picture going in your face - although it goes up on the gram (you know how it is) its also to be able to remember times that make me giggle & smile in the not so good times that we all have..if your a person who really hates cameras try and look beyond it and remember the moment thats being captured and how much it will make you smile looking back on it. 
Memories are golden dont let them slide
