Would I move out to the leafy suburbs of Surrey and commute into London in a bid to 'have it all'? Or would I head back to the North East where a cheaper, calmer life surrounded by my family awaited?
I get the argument from both sides: the fit moms want to show what they've accomplished and inspire other moms that they can look the same way, and some women feel that by doing that, the women are saying out-of-shape moms are just making excuses.
It's often the case that people make resolutions for half-baked or even unhelpful reasons. They may think they should use New Year as the opportunity to improve; after all, others are making resolutions, are wanting to lose weight, stop smoking, not drink as much so why not join in?
Some people might only have bad things to say about gap years, but what they don't know is that many great thinkers kick-started their intellectual journey abroad. Sometimes there is just nothing better than to polish your Einstein brain far away from home and wander into the heart of unknown lands. Let's take a look at the great list...
"Start before you're ready" ... What does it mean? It means to "whisper #YOLO to the wind" and delve into something before all your cards are dealt, because, let's face it - so many of us wait for the right moment and that moment never comes.
Every woman I know, at one time or another, has spoken to themselves or about themselves in a way they wouldn't even dream of talking about their loved ones. This is having a massively negative impact on their lives - on our lives. And it has got to stop.
Here's the thing: you have to choose what's important to you. To create success, you have to set aside time and make room for it. You have to cut out the negative committee and focus on what really matters to you.
If you love tarot and hope to connect to the meaning of the cards, on a personal level, then take what I say, apply it to your life, and start to learn how to interpret for yourself. Ruminate, contemplate and mediate on the card.
We may never get everything we want from life, we may not always get everyone to see our point of view, but if we can be the change we want to see in the world, if we take positive steps in our lives towards this, then others will be inspired to follow!
Christmas is a wonderful time for us to step back from all the busyness that surrounds us so that we can get a clearer look at who we are and where we are going in our lives. A simple way to help us make the most of this opportunity is to 'unplug'.
Life has no meaning besides the one you create for yourself. It is only up to you to decide what meaning to fulfill your life with.
I'm an Aquarian and the new Aquarian Age is nearly upon us and I believe that we are coming into a new era of change in our values, community, unity and integrity; where people are already beginning to question old out moded beliefs and ways of thinking and are looking for deeper meaning in their lives...
From the moment we arrive on this earth, we're looking for answers. "What does that do? ... What does this mean? Why are you doing that?" How often, though, do we get satisfactory, or even honest, answers?
I have only been speaking professionally for a short while and I certainly have had my eyes opened to what hard work has to go into it. Beforehand, sure I stood up and spoke publicly, but I would simply stand up and tell my story. There was no craft to it nor did I think about what message my listeners might be taking away with them.
Did you use to dream of drinking a poison that could turn you into an animal? Or maybe you still wish you could become a lion, a sharp-toothed wolf or a kingly hawk? Well, the bad news is that there is no magical formula that can turn humans into animals, but do you even have to?
If I could offer someone on the cusp of their twenties any advice, I would say don't just go with a generic life plan because it 'looks right' or because it's 'what everyone else is doing.' Take time to think about what you want to achieve and how you are going to get there... Sometimes you have to sidestep the safe option and take a risk.
