Express, Expand and Grow

By on July 14, 2015
Express Yourself

I get it, life can be hard,

it has challenges.

I have had more than my fair share, believe me.

But I know I was put on this earth for a purpose.

and I also know that you were too!

Sometimes it takes a while to realise that.

Sometimes it takes a while to even believe it.

Sometimes it takes a while to know what it is.

It lies there in you, waiting to be discovered.

The beauty of it is… my coach keeps reminding me oh so subtly and sometimes directly is this…

…you just need to SHOW UP!

Allow the real YOU to show up in the world.


Everywhere you make an appearance,

Whether it be with yourself, your family, your friends or co workers.

Every comment you make, advice you give, have the courage to let out what is inside of you.


Every time you post on social media…

…are you living your real life or a persona of who you wish to be?

are you pretending to be someone else to “fit in”?

I can tell you now, I am still working on this, Every single day, I really am.

And you should too.

Every day is an Opportunity to shine

Every day is an opportunity to Express, expand and grow yourSELF

whether that is good or bad it is your choice to make.

You have that power, when you take responsibility for every thought you have, every decision you make.

So YOU choose who you want to be and how you show up in the world.

Are you going to choose to expand, choose to express, choose to grow?

Or are you going to choose stay in the dark, enveloped by fear?

In a world where almost every human lives in fear of judgement, I get that the thought of feeling socially excluded is a threat to people and I get it.

But the real you is so unique and so beautiful that you do not need to be anybody else.

You can choose how you want to live and how you want to feel.

So why not choose love over fear, light over dark, thrive over survive?

So Show up, every day and the person you were born to be

that powerful purpose that lives in ALL of us, is waiting to be unleashed

Do it now, Define who YOU are and who YOU want to be

You may just find out that you are good enough after all



Be True (to yourself)
Be Courageous (to be YOU)
Be Happy (With your SELF)
