Saw one of my #senegence #idols post the 8 year challenge to show how much she had changed in the past 8 years
I didn’t feel like I’d changed much other then put a lot of weight on and the started loosing it again lol
But my biggest changes aren’t visible at all they are in my #mindset
How much I’ve changed the way I #think about #myself and the way I see myself I’ve grown older I actually care about myself, I’ve over come depression and obesity I’ve changed my attitude about myself and others...
The biggest change I’ve ever had was all due to @senegenceinternational it has been the biggest thing to help with the way I see myself 😍
So @chantellepatumakeup Thank you so much for posting the 8 year challenge it showed me how much I’ve grown and made me think about how far I have come.....
And how far I want to go....

Plants update! I started an Amazon wish list for garden things and I am now glad my birthday is coming up in less than 2 months so I can get bits!
1 – Succulents – They’re still getting bigger, and I need new homes for these little dudes. A couple of people from work said they’d like some, and I have some old candle pots to clean up and transfer some in to. I definitely have to move on it today, as they’re all running out of room!
2 – Pumpkin – The slugs have been at it again, with how much has been eaten I’m going to leave it and try again next year.
3&4 – Lettuce – Still getting taller and taller, but not really growing leafy enough to eat. Am I doing something wrong with it Also has an earwig living in it, I’ll leave him there as he’s not doing any harm.
5 – Celery – Like the lettuce, its not really getting to an edible state, but I’ll leave it as it is and see how it goes
6 – Mint and lavender – The mint is doing very well, especially for one I got for less than £1 at Aldi. The Lavender might need moving to a different pot, I think this one might be a bit small for it now. Fingers crossed a new pot will get it to stand up a bit more!
7&8 – Raspberry, Welsh poppy, and mystery seed trays – Nothing is happening with these little guys, so they’re going to come up stairs to the airing cupboard to see if that will encourage sprouting.
9 – Forget-me-nots – I think these may have flowered while we were away a couple of weeks ago, but they might be perennial (the internet did not help) so they’re going outside in a bigger pot today and we’ll see how they do.

Are you a coffee lover
I never drank coffee until I started working in the west end and even then it was 1 in the morning and I used to have the occasional tea.
When I had my first child the addiction really began but I think more out of boredom, that and making beverages for visitors who came to meet my baby girl!
It’s a big change going from working full time and socialising with friends to becoming a first time mum. It isn’t something I’d changed though as I love both my children more than anything.
Certain other things that have happened along the way I would change but we have to learn to live with things that happen and unfortunately you can’t go back in time, nor can things stay the same forever. Live is about learning and growing from the choices we make.
What’s your greatest achievement

Selvom jeg absolut ikke nyder at været så syg som jeg er og naturligvis ofte ville ønske jeg ikke var begrænset af traumer, anfald, udmattelse og smerter så har jeg lært mere om mig selv og om verdenen det sidste år hvor det har toppet, end på et helt liv. På en måde er det som om jeg har gået ubevidst og forberedt mig på denne kamp, denne udfordring og på visse dage ser jeg alting klarere og tydeligere end jeg nogensinde har gjort. På de dage forstår jeg alt der er sket og har fred med det hele. På andre dage ønsker jeg det hele væk og aldrig sket og har enormt ondt af mig selv. Og sådan er det at være menneske. Jeg er landet et sted i mig selv hvor jeg for det meste er okay med det det som er. Jeg er nyder de gode glimt og jeg lever med de dårlige dage. Jeg går ikke længere rundt og banker mig selv i hovedet over at jeg burde have været anderledes end jeg er. For jeg forstår at jeg er præcist hvem jeg blev født til at være. Og at hvis det skulle have været anderledes så havde det været anderledes. Så hvem er denne kvinde som jeg ser i øjnene hver morgen. Hun er ikke den jeg troede jeg var eller den jeg blev fortalt jeg var. Og heldigvis for det. Hun er noget meget bedre. Og hver dag lære jeg mere og mere om hende, om mig. "Og tænk jeg sig at opdage at hende jeg troede var min fjende i al den tid var min bedste ven" #lifewithptsd #fibromyalgia #alifewithpnes #lifewithanxity #spoonielife #learning #growing #healing #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #livingwithit #acceptingwhatis #lookup #lifeisbeautiful #openwide #masteringyourmeangirl #gratitude #chooselove #chooselight #doingthework #newwayofthinking #etlivmedanfald #etlivmedkropssmerter
Close up from a eucalyptus branch. I am so in love with the smell this baby plant produces, I sometimes have to keep myself from constantly touching the leaves.

I am still entranced by this 80/20 rule. Let me share with you a brief description of this miraculous rule, perhaps it you will conjure up a new life forthwith.
How You Can Live An 80/20 Lifestyle
When you start to analyze and breakdown your life into elements it’s very easy to see 80/20 ratios all over the place. The trick, once your key happiness determinants have been identified, is to make everything work in harmony and avoid wasting time on those 80 percent activities that produce little satisfaction for you.
start being creative and giving back – produce output! You won’t find fulfillment only by consuming.
If financial freedom is important to you and a big part of your plans look at this step as phase one and work to convert your passions into income generating propositions. Grow your business client-by-client, gig-by-gig or sale-by-sale. keep adjusting your work vs passion time ratio as your business grows to support you and you no longer need your job income. Look for 80/20 activities in everything you do and drop any inefficiencies as soon as you can.
The principle was suggested by management thinker Joseph M. Juran. It was named after the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed that 80% of income in Italy was received by 20% of the Italian population. The assumption is that most of the results in any situation are determined by a small number of causes.

Your best is all you can offer. Don't compare yourself to anyone, especially who you were at one point or another. Do your best with what you have today. ⠀⠀
Your best, with what you have in this moment, is all anyone can ask of you.
