I don’t get it right all the time.

I would love to be one of those people who has Instagram-worthy meals three times a day, but I’m not. Sometimes at lunch, I just have to run into the supermarket and buy whatever’s there that has the least amount of preservatives and gunk in it. I try my best.

I would love to spend hours every evening creating beautiful meals, but it doesn’t normally happen. I always makes things from scratch, but they’re not culinary masterpieces. I’m still accepting the fact that I can bake, but I’m not-so-hot on the cooking front.

Despite writing this article a little while ago, I do enjoy a cup of coffee every now and then, and I mean, really enjoy it. I don’t need it to wake up, but I enjoy the taste and my body can handle it occasionally.

I’m still going out of my way to avoid yoga (as I mention here). I have major social media envy for all of those people who can flip into scorpion at the drop of a hat, but I’ve accepted that it’s going to take time to get there. My excuses are becoming less frequent, and one day soon, I’ll be practicing regularly, but that time is not now.

I don’t always have the time or the money to buy organic. I try my best, but I’m just grateful to have access to such an array of fruit and vegetables at all.

I try to be energetic and open all the time, but after a week of teaching full-time, I sometimes become a hermit on Sundays. I need it for my soul. Those energy leaks need to be plugged quickly.

I massively over-committed myself at work last week and was really upset with myself. The Universe gave me a break and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but there was a definite ‘learn your lesson’ message involved.

Sometimes I don’t look after myself as much as I should do and do chores around the house loudly as a way of expressing how angry I am at myself (the irony being that this clearly makes me more angry and fatigued).


The lesson?

What you see on the internet isn’t the full story.

You’re only seeing a sample of what goes in the life of your favourite celebrity, media personality or blogger, so for goodness sakes, don’t compare yourself to them if it makes you feel terrible about where you are. They are human too. If they motivate you, fabulous, but if they make you feel guilty and wretched about where you are, consider taking a break for a while.

The 2nd lesson? This. (In relation to food? Here.)

Stay open and stay true to yourself. Don’t feel expected to look, eat or act a certain way because you feel you have to keep up with everyone else. It’s utterly and completely exhausting.

Breathe and do your best.

I don’t get it right all the time.

Love and honesty,

  1. Mmmmm great reminder! It’s so easy to look at a few images of pretty/happy/fit looking people and think that their lives are like that all the time. So unrealistic. Thank you x
