“Note to self: you are about to go into territories where you have never been before. You are about to be stretched in ways you were not expecting. And these tired bones will be put to use. But you will be okay. Not perfect, but okay. And if you happen to find broken, ruined things that seem beyond repair, take heart, be still, light will still meet there. Shining in on sunless thoughts on the days you feel most lost. Reminding you it is okay to pursue endless peace in the wold of new unknowns.” - @morganharpernichols ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So in love with everything this woman writes, it’s like she’s speaking to my truest self. What a beautiful encouragement and reminder this is.

Looking for? . . . . . .

TLDR: anyone else got an obsessive personality!? Like everything is all or nothing 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Big thank you to everyone who helped me out yesterday by replying to my story!! I’ve had a pretty turbulent relationship with exercise (either doing too much or doing none at all haha - I have a pretty extreme/obsessive personality) I find it difficult sometimes to strike a balance in life! With all kinds of things, not just exercise. I’m either all in or not at all, either running a marathon or literally not running ever (true story: I ran the London marathon in 2016 after barely running before that year haha, and then as soon as the marathon was done I just completely stopped running). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are ups and downs to this - if I decide I’m going to get something done, I will run at it full force until I’ve done it, I don’t half-ass things, I go the distance! But if something isn’t a priority to me, or I don’t particularly want to dedicate my life to something, I find it so difficult to do it!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Balance is so important in life, though, and I am in the process of learning that (I feel like it will forever be a process to be honest). I’ve struggling with eating in the past (again, obsessive personality lol 🙋🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️) and for a few years now I’ve definitely found that balance and am honestly shocked at how little I think about that (anyone who has suffered with an ED before will understand how life consuming it is!), and I’m so grateful for that freedom! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I guess the point of this caption is me opening up but also trying to reassure anyone who is similar to me - there can be a balance in your life, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing! And I’m still in the process of learning that. I’ve just started going back to the gym after a lonnnnggg time off (not been since I got married lol) and I’m really going to try to be balanced with it - consistency doesn’t have to mean every single day! 🙈 and giving myself a rest doesn’t have to mean having 11 months off 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ so yeah, thanks guys for motivating me haha, I needed it!!👏🏼

TLDR: maybe there’s more to living than working to pay bills until we retire. What more could there be for you? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Have you ever wondered what your life would look like if you just dropped everything that is toxic, that doesn’t give you life, that doesn’t nurture you or encourage growth in you, and instead you took a big risk and dedicated your each every day to exploring your true self, your higher purpose, sought love and nurture and growth? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It saddens me so much to think of the amount of people who think they *have* to work a job they hate, *have* to live in a place they can barely afford, *have* to have that car on finance or that tv subscription or that super fast broadband and then end up with so many bills to pay each month and working so much just to pay those bills that their true self, their higher purpose is diminished and often given up on. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s true that some of us are enormously privileged and maybe people will be offended at this post, because they honestly and truly believe that they *have* to do all of these things to survive. Honestly though, you don’t have to... ...I wonder what would happen if we allowed ourselves a minute to explore our higher purpose. To spend time in silence, in meditation, in prayer, dedicating time to exploring what God (the highest reality there is) has to say, they ways in which He might move in and shake up our experience of existence.

Wildflower picking again after work with my husband 💐 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What’s your favourite kind of flowers?? I always say sunflowers, because they’re so pretty and so happy, but I love random flowers thrown together with greenery and vines and just basically when things look messy I looooove it haha!! VMware you the kind of person to throw together a load of random flowers or is there one kind of flower that you just LOVE?? I’d love to know! 🌸💐🌼🌷🌹🥀🌺🌻🌾🌿🍃

Lately I’ve been thinking more about what it means to be alive (lol you can tell I studied philosophy at uni) but seriously every time Matt and I go for a drive we end up talking about this! I feel more and more like we are so much more than we think we are, so much older than these human bodies, and there’s so much more to life than we allow ourselves to experience. We are not these human bodies - they’re just our experience right now, we are so much older and deeper than that, and I feel more than ever that there is a huge amount of existence and experience around us that we can’t perceive with the 5 senses that we all rely on. It’s exciting because there’s so much more learn, like we’re just scratching the surface of what it is to be alive. I love talking about things like this on car journeys, it passes the time and gets me so excited!! What do you like to talk about in cars??

@meadhama mentioned this verse on Friday and it’s been in my head ever since: “And now, here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to start all over again. I’m taking her back out into the wilderness where we had our first date, and I’ll court her. I’ll give her bouquets of roses. I’ll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope.“ ‭‭Hosea‬ ‭2:14 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ No matter what you’re facing, your Heartbreak Valley will be turned into Acres of Hope when you let go and let God ♥️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Do you have a favourite quote, or favourite bible verse, or song lyric? I’d love to hear it!! 🙏🏼
