  • Obviously not the result I came here for.

  • I was recently asked a really interesting question. Where were you in life three years ago?⠀ ⠀ 3 years ago, I was a mom of a 4 year old and 6 month old. I was tired, stressed out, living at the doctor’s office, anticipating the baby’s first ear tube surgery and feeling incredibly anxious. ⠀ ⠀ 3 years ago, I was desperately trying to hold on to my identity as a person outside of just being a mom. I had recently found out that I had lost my blog- thenomadmommy.com- because I hadn’t auto-renewed my domain and I was so angry and upset because it was literally my life’s work at that point. ⠀ ⠀ 3 years ago, I was also trying really hard to keep my hand-made baby linens business called Princes and Fairies going but hating every second of it. Getting a notification that I had a new order caused me experience a wave of anxiety about how I would go about fulfilling it. ⠀ ⠀ 3 years ago-the babies were little and so so cute. We had just bought a beautiful house and were learning to live with all the extra space. And I was learning how to play with my favorite kitchen tool, the Instant Pot.⠀ ⠀ In some ways, 3 years feels like a lifetime ago. But, I also remember those struggles, the feeling of futility and overwhelm like it was yesterday. ⠀ ⠀ Time passes. And the memories of our difficulties fade. That first year with a baby is a tremendously difficult time for any woman. Whether it’s your first child or not, your life transforms completely. And even though you learn that love multiplies when it’s divided, the adjustment journey can be long and arduous. ⠀ ⠀ For all my mama friends who are watching their friends and peers building things, creating things, doing things as they rock their little ones to sleep- please know that the days are indeed long- but the years are so short. Enjoy this period of transition. Give your body a chance to heal. Give your mind a chance to absorb the newness of your transformed family. And when you’re ready, go pursue that dream you’ve been holding on to deep in your heart. ⠀ ⠀ Want to know what I’m doing today? Check back here later this week 💕 Where were you in life three years ago?⠀ ⠀ #muslimmom #thedaysarelong #threeyearsago

  • Dinner 🍽 Eggs and veggies all thrown into a pan together with some coconut oil and voila! 🍳 Not glamorous, but filling and nutritious. I didn’t lose any weight last week... from my lack of exercise and blow out weekend I am guessing so time to get back on track and not beat myself up about it. . . . . #onwardsandupwards #newweek #fitgoals #readyforsummer #bbgweek1 #fitmum #letsdothis

  • You ever write something that is a complete opening up of your heart and soul, only to find it doesn’t get posted and you can’t access it again? Just happened to me. I had to laugh. Life is a funny mofo that way. I was even a little nervous about putting it out there for anyone in the world to see. So what do I do now? Try to recreate it? Or just let it be. Let it go. Maybe it was a sign from the universe that I needed to write it but it doesn’t matter if it’s read by another pair of eyes.. or maybe I need to open up that wound again and let it rip because the content is important and could potentially help someone? My gut tells me to open it up again. It’ll be a new creation but it’ll be beneficial. I’ll post later today. Onwards. #onwardsandupwards #beyondmotivated #keepitreal #strongerthanyesterday #strength4life #obstacleistheway #perspective #pathlesstraveled #gettingdeep #relentless

  • Resilience: is the ability to bounce back. The fact that you are able to get back up after life has thrown you down, smile after crying an ocean, be at peace after enduring endless trouble, see a bright future after navigating an uncertain past... This is a God given ability and I am forever grateful for possessing this trait! 🙏💞🙏🙏 Am not looking down because I despair but because I am admiring my shoes 😂😂😂. #onwardsandupwards #godsgrace #sorrynotsorry #owningitall

  • #ChangeTheRules . CSIRO invented the mathematics to make wifi possible, introduced contact lens that you could wear for extended periods of time, amongst many other things. Yet they continue to get defunded, slashed and reduced. There were a lot of placards and slogans for various industries at the rally today, but this one struck a major chord with me. . Good things happen when you fund science. . I'd wager a major reason for their continued budget cuts being that they continue to prove that climate change is real, which goes against the interests of the coal industry and the current liberal government which plays right into their hands. . Or maybe the fact that they prove the great barrier reef is indeed not just dying, but actually dead in most parts, and that goes against the convoluted ideals of the government either who keep trying to insist otherwise . Science is a complicated process which often results in glacially slow advances, and that's one of the biggest issues plaguing us right now. We want quick. Just like most government's hold over their countries - Everything is short term. . Short term mentality is bad for science. Science needs patience. For every single invention we enjoy today, a scientist labours over repeatedly without pause, failing repeatedly for years and years until finally, they succeed. . It took 35+ years of work for the cochlear implant to get to the level they are now, where they are able to restore even the most severe of hearing loss. . Science doesn't happen quickly, but when it does finally click, it's pretty damn good. . 160,000+ ppl today. Pretty nice.

  • Cant let the dark moments in life blind you from the journey that made you happy, you cant loose motivation or the fight, you just got to re fuel the fire, the determination you once had burning strong. 3 weeks of being lazy and depressed but that side of me wont win this battle 🤙💪🏻 onwards and upwards. #fitness #onwardsandupwards #noquitting #motivation #igotthis #backatit

  • It's been a very mentally challenging week at work. Not only busy with what we do best but, something relatively minor happened that has sent my head into a spin. It wasn't at all my fault - I was the one who discovered someone else's mistake. My head has had trouble getting around it. My logical brain has been able to explain things but it has all made me mentally exhausted 😩. I spent last week literally eating through my feelings. That wasn't the best of ideas. This week I'm trying to lift through it. Not a heavy weight I know but, the hamstring is a bit dodgy still so doing lighter weights for reps today. It's made me feel a wee bit better. A week on a nice sunny island 🌴 would do well about now #chickswholift #chickswholiftproblems #girlswholift #girlswholiftproblems #ivegotthis #lovefit #donteatyafeelings #emotionaleater #onwardsandupwards #liftitout

  • EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON!! . 3 years ago something did happen, and as upsetting as it was it changed everything about me since that day! I will never ever get to that point again, my mind is clear, everything is based on positivity, even when negative things get thrown at me Yes I will have my bad days but it’s then not to turn them into multiple bad days and working through it I just want to thank my close friends for their non stop support and listening to me without judgement to my ranting and also being there when I need someone All the guys and gals at work for their understanding at times and knowing I can go to a job where I can do the work I love Lastly to my amazing mum, for just being that, she’s been doing it tough lately but she is by far the strongest person I know Just remember people to keep going onwards and upwards and take control of your life #onwardsandupwards #positivevibes #nonegativity #onestepatatime #nolookingback #nogoingback #everythinghappensforareason

  • Totally stealing this. People really do change, but boy am I glad. Boy am I glad you changed gradually, while trying with me to be a better person and work on things (even if it failed again). Boy am I glad you changed gracefully & without impulsiveness, nastiness & drama like last time (thank you so so much 💕). Boy am I glad you (and me too) admitted where you (we) went wrong so we can identify the shit we want to stay far far away from moving forward. Boy am I glad we’re making a solid effort at becoming much better people. Boy am I glad we’re getting the help we need to be ourselves again. And boy am I glad you aren’t fighting to pick up the fallen pieces, because the minute you do, I’ll literally fall back in love with you all over again. #relationshipquotes #bye #forwardmovement #onwardsandupwards #iloveyou #butnowitstimeforselflove #selfcare #itsokaytoleave #love #girlfriend #exgirlfriend #toughtimes #hardtimes
