This is how…

People ask me all the time – ‘How, how in god’s name do you what you do?!’ – referring to me being a zoo keeper, CEO of our house, building an empire and everything else that comes with it.

I’m not trying to make people feel like crap… that’s the last thing I want to do! I’m trying to show the world that ‘anything’s possible! – but you have to be hungry, like really hungry, starving to want to take control and change your life.’

This is how I have rebuilt myself. Well – that and the attitude – Ready… Fire… Aim that I have adopted… Every second of my day is planned out. My days start anywhere from 4-6am depending on my time schedule for the day. I have become very disciplined with listening to my body so throughout the day, if I loose concentration etc. I will get up, go do another load of washing, stretch, make a potent cup of coffee, go for a run… Something that will help me to completely refocus – and then I return to doing what I’m doing.

Not every mother can achieve this – AND THAT’S 150% OK! Not every mother has been through a traumatic life event such as myself – essentially that is what has given me this new perspective… this want for a better life, the ‘I’m larger than life… NOT  bulletproof’ attitude.

That stick sticking out of my ass is getting longer everyday… But hey – I put it there. It’s 100% OK because I’m the most real… authentic… most down to earth bird you will ever meet and I own every behavior that feeds out of my being… Even the shit ones… You may not agree with me, and that is also OK… It is a million % OK for people to have a difference of opinion. It doesn’t have to be – “oh they lied” or “That’s not what happened” – no 2 eyes see the same thing and as humans, we as a species do not have the best communication skills…

I’m all about the energy these days! I’ve turned all hippie like… I love my Reiki, massages, being in-touch with my body, etc. It has helped me not overcome my pain – I will always be in pain, the trick I have mastered is being able to not even think about the P word… I have let pain be the driving force behind my purpose.

I wake up in the morning, coffee, exercise (OMG A WEEK AGO I STARTED SEEING DEFINITION OF MY ABS!) then I just let my day pan out how the universe intends it to…  and I attack the most critical tasks that need to be completed. I make sure I’m showered with a clean kitchen before my 10pm bed time – I have a very strict sleep schedule. I’m really lucky in the sense that both my boys now sleep through. It’s all good.

Aquo the conqueror…

People have been asking – “but how are you doing all this?” – this, referring to my blog, maintaining a website, doing a certificate III & IV in fitness AND raising two babies, the answer is so complex I don’t even know where to begin! I’m tireddd…

It’s not that I owe anyone an explanation, I went from being mentally abused for five years and saying sorry for every little thing that went wrong – regardless if it was my fault or not, to knowing my worth and not justifying every action because I feel uncomfortable. It took a bloody long time for the tables to turn… it wasn’t until I was a few years into growing my brand that I felt the weight being lifted off my shoulders. While I’m sitting here I will write what comes to me… which has been hard for all of January (I scheduled a month of posts so I kept my presence over the New Year).

For starters I have two really well behaved boys (even when there being little shitbags), I really was blessed! I mean – Jack sleeps 12-13 hours a night & Harry is up once still but when I go to bed I put a bottle in his cot so he doesn’t wake me… it’s pretty cool – babies are smart miniature humans…

I started my blog as I felt there was more for me in this life than to only be a stay at home mum, I mean, I have a pretty full on story to share with the world, not to mention I’m as blunt as my kitchen knives – which makes for a good laugh… It helps that I absolutly love writing! I started a book on my story which has been put on hold till after I finish my certificate III & IV in fitness.

YES I know, I tried to conqure too much at once… but that’s just it! I’M A CONQUEROR! Yes – I do need to just focus on one thing, smash it out and then move on to the next… HOWEVER – tell that to all the squirrels running around in my head, I mean, Hammy out of Over the Hedge ain’t got anything on me! ANDDD add a brain injury on top… Yeah – people think I’m crazy, but that’s their problem. It’s not my problem how people perceive me.

Oh yeah, back to telling you about what I’m trying to achieve… So I just started a certificate III & IV in fitness and I have a year to finish that and I have a few ideas brewing but they’re not quite ready yet. I’m thinking then move on to nutritional science and furthering my education because like Tony Robbins said – the more that I learn the more I can help people or something like that…

Anyways… that’s a bit about what I AM going to achieve… stay tuned for more!
