What a start to the year!
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting February grateful, and full of renewed fire – all thanks to so many of you that chose to join me in ‘Starting Strong’. Together, we took 21 small steps and days toward a better, brighter life.
Of course, it wasn’t all plain sailing – and I’m sure like me, many of you faced some false starts, stumbles and set backs. But, instead of stepping back from the challenge, we stepped up and came back even stronger.
With the month of love now officially upon us, here’s my next challenge to you:
Love Yourself (just a little bit more).
Instead of modelling martyrdom (death-of-self) to your nearest and dearest, why not flip the script and choose to bring more life and love – not just to those around, but most especially, to your own lovely self.
Far from being selfish, loving ourselves well is the first step to loving others well. After all – no one can pour from an empty cup. No matter how good our intentions. So, starting this Feb, let’s get loving and looking after the one and only life we’ve each been most entrusted with: our own.
In celebration of loving ourselves, here are a few of my favourite things… may they inspire you to reflect on what fills your cup and floats your boat!
MY BASIL POT PLANT.
I love my family and relish the times we spend together. Even (especially) the ‘everyday’ times. My basil pot plant has been prolific this season, so we’ve started making our own pesto! This has become our go-to family meal – easy pesto pasta.
‘AHA’ MOMENTS AND GUT HEALTH!
I’m a bit of a personal growth and wellness nut. I constantly on the look out to learn more about the world, how we’re wired, and how best to take care of our health. While there’s always a shelf-full of different vitamins and supplements in our home, the one we all take every day (without fail) is our probiotics.
THE SKIN THAT I’M IN.
Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? To take good care of mine, I love a good massage. So this month, I’m going to make sure I book one in – it’ll be my Valentine’s gift to myself!
FRIENDS + GOOD FOOD.
Connecting with friends over a meal is definitely one of my favourite things. And when in Cape Town, the Vineyard Hotel is one of my favourite places to do this at.
Music makes everything better – it adds a soundtrack to our lives. Currently, my kids have me hooked on Bruno Mars (‘Count On Me’ is on repeat)! I love local music as well – give me a local gospel song any day.
Exploring new places, meeting new people and finding out about different cultures is a real cup-filler for me. And here’s my favourite travel tip: bring a spray diffuser with your favourite scent along with you – that way, your hotel room and pillow will always smell like home. Favourite places to explore: Locally, my hometown, East London. Internationally, my husband’s homeland, the UK (especially London).
Love (and power) always
