Right now I am feeling so loved and appreciated.
I was just about to start writing when there was a knock at the front door.
A bunch of flowers was delivered!
What a beautiful surprise.
When I opened the card, I found it was from my friend Brooke.
Congratulating me on finishing Love Queen!
Yes, you may have seen on my Instagram that on Friday I had the meeting with the editor.
She said I did a good job and can now proceed with the next stage in publishing.
It’s been a five-year journey.
And in that time I’ve not only edited this book about ten times, I also ended up writing the other four in the Love Queen series.
I’m celebrating myself.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
I also received so many comments and messages of congratulations and I appreciate each one and every one of YOU with all my heart.
So what about this velour red tracksuit?
When I was shopping for my dad’s and godson’s birthday two weeks ago, I passed a shop with velour tracksuits out front.
I just had to have the black velour track pants and the red velour tracksuit.
On Saturday night I debuted the red one with strappy black heels and this Japanese crane jacket.
We were off to drink margaritas and eat fish tacos for Sam’s birthday.
I rode my bike to the restaurant.
My God did I look cool.
That’s what I thought.
But at the restaurant, we were sitting down so no one noticed.
Then we went to a bar and so many people came to ask.
Is that a velour red tracksuit you’re wearing?!
Yes, it is.
For this week’s Living Deeply Story podcast episode, I’m sharing a story that was originally called No Higher Than Your Heart.
You Don’t Have To Hold Your Head Higher Than Your Heart.
It’s about one of the times in Switzerland when I thought I could rollerblade.
And found out (again) that I couldn’t.
It’s about risk-taking.
And changing it up.
It’s a funny story!
Lately, I have been letting go of how my mind imagines life should be.
There was a post from Alpha Femme (Melanie Anne Layer) on Instagram on Monday.
She said that her aim was ‘exponential growth over a lifetime’.
Her mind could never even have conceived of earning $40 million in 4 years as a coach.
It would have aimed too low or if she aimed high and didn’t achieve it, lack thoughts may have sprung up.
Exponential Growth Over A Lifetime.
How loving is that?!
Lately, I have been opening up to the infinitive supply that is available to us.
Sometimes this means I ask.
Unattached to the outcome.
One thing I love using is The Lucky Bitch app.
It’s by Denise Duffield Thomas and it’s for recording all that we receive.
I also love the Good Budget app.
It’s where I note how I spend.
Last week I said to my mum that I’m such a catch.
I’m a catch and a half!
This is not something I’m telling myself.
It’s a place I have arrived at.
It was quite the journey to get here.
But a journey begins with a step.
I’m so happy, I said.
And I’m emotionally intelligent.
You’re lucky, she replied.
No, I created this!
I shared recently about how I meditate on the podcast.
This was one ingredient.
The guides I put out last year: Elevate, Empower, Master Your Mind, Radiate and Magnetise are my way of trying to help anyone who would like some direction and a shortcut perhaps.
No one can do the work for us.
We have to.
But it can be fun.
