Good days, bad days 😆 yesterday I felt sooo tired and pretty shit got myself looking a little tidied up and had a fairly chilled day trying to wing it, today I feel so much better and have more energy but have planned a busy day and didn't have time to even concider what I look like, so I look like ninja kid, havnt even brushed my hair and running about like a nut house escapee 😂😂 story of a mums life... If we look like death chances are we are busy getting on with other things other than what we look like but also more importantly it goes to show u can't judge a book by its cover the day I looked more presentable, inside I felt awful yet today outwardly I look a mess but inside I feel actually really good 🤪 ultimately it's OK to have both good and bad days be it from the inside or out we're all normal and if society and social media leads us to believe differently i can assure you we are all the same and we just have to take the rough with the smooth 👌😁 #mumslife#image#healthymindset#positivevibes#onprep#mumfitness#mindful#perception#emotions#upsanddowns#gooddays#baddays#fitnessjourney#summerholls#bodyimage#mentalhealth#nojudgement#onprep#fitnessjourney#gains#goals#motivation
Ah so true, but easily forgotten in the moment... Life is always going to be full of surprises and direction changes we don't always expect, welcome or understand. Sometimes it's for the better, leading us down a happier, more flowing path. Sometimes it's more difficult, stretching us in ways we never expected or wanted with bumps along the way. Ultimately tho, it's a dance, just waiting for us to play our own tune... 💃🎶 🙏💗🌼 with fae blessings Ashantara xo
Happy Wednesday my loves!!🍀🎋 Hope everyone’s having a good week (if not, the weekend is just around the corner🌟). In light of this picture I found of my mother and I in New York, I wanted to discuss the topic of the past🔙.
Like most people, I did not have the easiest life growing up. My mother (who moved to the UK in the late 1990’s) was still on the path to finding herself, build a career and raise two children on her own in the city of London (which is far from easy). She sacrificed everything to make sure my sister and I had opportunities. I saw her ups and downs and my childhood was not perfect but I am thankful❤️
My school experience was a rollercoaster. I had my experiences with bullying, fallouts and not fitting in or feeling good enough. Although, it was a hard time in my life, I am thankful❤️
Our past may not always be perfect, but its important to reflect on it. We all must come to terms with our past and accept what is said and done. What we can do is become better versions of ourselves with gratitude, respect and love for ourselves and others around us. No matter what happens, we should all be thankful for our past and events, because it makes us the people we are today.
No matter what you have or are going through, I love and stand by you❤️
I often think I'm not cut out for this parenting malarkey. Sometimes it's tough, it's really tough! The late nights because you've learned a new thing or because you're clearly in so much pain with your little peggies. When I can't sleep because you fidget and I hear you. When you fidget because I can't sleep and you hear me. It's catch 22 with you Lorelai! Yet every single day I know exactly how lucky I am to have you. How you make me want to burst with pride, even when I feel like breaking down because we've had a tough night or day. You amaze me more than I ever imagined. Before you, I hated how babies would make a mess when eating and put their hands in it and smear it everywhere, I hated the dribble and the wet saliva hands. I hated the food all over the clothes and the floor. Yet with you I'm invincible. Those things don't scare me when it's you. You can wipe your sticky hands all over my face and I'll laugh because those moments are so special. All in the space of a month you've got 2 teeth, you wave hello and bye bye, you give kisses even if you tend to only give them to Snuggles 🧸, you've learnt to crawl, you've learnt to pull yourself up onto your feet, you take steps around anything you're holding on to and last night you stood unaided for a short while. Soon you'll be standing and then you'll be walking. I was so impatient before all of this. I just wanted you to crawl and now I'm thinking it's all happening in the blink of an eye. Being your mummy is one of the greatest blessings. I love you 🥰💞😍😘
Had to take a gee days off for my mental health. Just the same as if I woke up with the flu, I called in sick from uni and stayed home. I am not sure what the matter is, but I will still treat it as though I was physically unwell. I’m hoping this becomes more regular in work places and schools 🏫. Do you take mental health days? ⬇️⬇️⬇️ let me know. I hope me sharing my bad days can allow bad days to be seen as regular parts of mental health. Highs and lows 🌈
