Baby chino and a muffin the size of her head.. luckily we are sharing it. 🥰😊 look at her as sweet as pie. Butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth 😊🥰 Dentist appointment, doctors appointment so no school today.. this is the life us working mummas have to face.. earache overnight and many tears so clearly a no school day.. It is an impossible task to work with my little miss. So just have to surrender and pick up work later when I am able.. this is the life I choose so I can be there for her when the need arises.. I do love to be my own boss but it certainly has its challenges.. but making her comfortable and supported is my main aim.. Any other working mums out there will know exactly what I am talking about.. and doesn’t it always fall when you have the busiest schedule and tight deadlines 🤦♀️🙆♀️🤷♀️ but we always seem to get done what we have to even if it means working into the night.. wish me luck.. #ashleywhitingcreative#smallbusinessowner#workingmumlife#localalbanyseamstress#challenges
After coming in the public eye I've understood one thing clearly - Behind every person who has any success or fame, there are multiple people & factors. I receive a lot of help in boosting my confidence and speaking abilities every time I have to make public appearances.
I don't always feel confident to speak publicly and constantly compare my communication abilities with people who speak better than me. i tend to forget that I have had a different challenge in learning because am hard-of-hearing. But I have gained faith in myself. I set my mind on Deaflympics and Miss Deaf World and I won because I dedicatedly worked at it.
So any word of encouragement/suggestion or guidance to help me overcome my challenge would be greatly appreciated. Thank You. .

Here is something else to consider: Social psychologists have found that when people suppress emotion, they remember less. The energy taken to push down emotion is energy diverted away from listening and processing. So suppressing emotions can make us less productive at work too.
If we push them entirely to one side, we are ignoring, at our peril, the people driven and empathetic side of the decision-making process; which is never going to be a good thing.
I’ve been in recovery for 4 months this time.. which is the longest out of the whole 7 bloody years with Anorexia ( stupidorexia ) that I’ve ever stayed in recovery and stuck it out before another relapse or “recovering” safely, in a disordered way. The fact i’ve done this by myself the past 4 months with my Mum by my side for most of it lol.. before many arguments and tantrums followed by my annoying questions 24/7 like “ am i big now, have i ate too much, is this okay to eat, can I eat this, what time can i eat it” SHUTUP HAHA. I’ve quit the fricken gym!!! Not to mention lately i’ve been craving the gym and cried about it lol because I miss it so much but going everyday and sometimes twice in a day, followed by walking was deffintley NOT OKAY, and most of the time I hated going to the gym, it was a chore and waking up everyday thinking that my day was going to be exactly the same.. eating the SAME food at the SAME TIMES, same routine every bloody day made me want to honestly dissapear. Yet I felt safe and incontrol. However miserable. And that was my “ recovery” I thought I was doing great. Lol how Anorexia makes you blind and manipulates you. It’s not easy to start recovery.. especially by yourself, i’ve somehow helped myself so much just by watching youtube videos, educating myself on the biological genetics, responses, science behind Anorexia.. so it could help me understand myself & why this won’t ever go away, learning about fear and how it presents in the body, why all these OCD ED habits are ruling my life & why I keep excercising when I hated it because my body didn’t have enough energy. I FOUGHT. Having to face trauma memories, sadness & grief. I can’t believe it’s been 4 months. Thanks to my youtube and all the amazing people online, honestly you all give me reasons to recover, recover for me, for everyone, to do great things etc, documenting my journey and watching it back. I have this fear recovery will end.. because it always has. But I’m incontrol of that. I have to fight. My brain is still going strong. Yes I may have had to quit jobs and stop alot but it was for the best. Somedays recovery is too hard and I do want to die, others its great ❤️
But I've dealt with enough clowns this week to last me, even though it's only Wednesday. Clowns that don't take responsibility for errors they clearly made. Clowns that want to take credit for work that you did. Clowns that run an international company but when you call them they act like you haven't been doing daily business with them for decades. These #clowns are not frightening, but they are irritating. #frustrating#challenges . Repost of #Bozo taken out of context and reposted from @the.red.king.lion
If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards. Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down #success#dreams#motivation#believe#winner#neverquit#challenges

This month I am doing a commitment challenge for myself, starting because of a friend and leader in Achievement Club.
For this month, I am following through with my commitments to myself (those of which I would usually let slide because of x,y or z).
So tonight I time blocked my book writing time for when my oldest has Dryland training, and my youngest has parkour. I ensured my computer was fully charged, brought everything with me, found a great spot, sat down and wrote ONE LINE - AND DEAD.
Damn computer died. 😳
So here I am - the universe has challenged my commitment to myself and my book. So I’ve packed up my computer, wrote my chapter on the notes app on my phone, and emailed it to myself. When I get home, it’s just a matter of copying and pasting my work into my word file and BOOM. 💥
Universe - 0

💥 Choose your hard 💥
👉🏻You can sit back and continue being unhappy in your current life situations.
You can keep on hoping and wishing that you were at a certain weight, had certain goals achieved and watch your friends who are saying their goals. 🌟OR 🌟 👉🏻You can take a leap of faith, work super hard and make a change for your life for the better! 🎉 ✨Yes it’s hard. But so is being unhappy. And personally I’ve been that person who let getting frustrated with themselves for not starting that diet on Monday, comparing myself to others and not doing anything for myself to change any of those ways. I did this for years. ✨Then I decided I was ready for a change and that’s when I began this journey almost a year and a half ago. And yes everyday of this journey is hard. Waking up early to workout (even on days I don’t want to) so I can start my day off right, to dialing in on my nutrition so I know what’s working for me and what’s not! Yes it can all be difficult at times.
BUT I would still choose this lifestyle hard over the other one every day!! •
What hard life obstacles are you facing⁉️ Are you ready to change them yet ⁉️
The World has a funny way of checking your integrity. Right before posting this I had an interaction with a visibly irritated barista when I asked for Almond Milk. I immediately felt that same energy bubble inside. I felt anger and self-righteousness toward him. Because what?!!! Because he gave me what I perceived as “attitude” when I asked for Almond Milk? I created a whole story around him that fed my ego and my own unresolved anger. Holy crap I have work to do... and I’m grateful for the awareness of my own shit this experience gave me. And for the grace to be able to reflect and grow from it. #paradigmshift
Hello sweet sons and daughters of God!...
How's your week so far? Any struggle you're facing right now? Have you conquered a challenged lately? ⠀
Challenge and struggle is not a joke. How much more when you face challenge after challenge? Or how hard can it be, when the struggle you're facing pulls you down.
This was exactly what happened to Job, a faithful man of God. (Job 1) Knowing the faithfulness of Job, God allowed Satan to test Job. (Job 1:12) Not wasting his time, Satan went on a "tragedy spree". He orchestrated one tragedy after the other - the death of Job's children and his servants, wiping out of all his possesions and even inflicting painful as well as repulsive skin boils. Yet through it all, Job passed with flying colors. As Job endured all the trials and tribulations, God found him faithful thus God blessed Job beyond measure. (James 5:11)
Perhaps Job's account might sound surreal to you, tho I tell you it is as real as the sun. Beloved, let me just share with you my short encounter with enemy, a few days earlier... #conqueror#childofgod#sty#trialtotriumph#struggleisreal#challenges#blessings#beloved

Sometimes we look at our challenges with frustration and defeat, but it is in overcoming our obstacles that we grow the most! Finding gratitude in anything big or small helps give perspective and makes those challenges more manageable ✨💕
Dear young self, only challenge causes growth. Only challenge will test our skills and make us better. Only challenge and the self-motivation to engage the challenge will transform us. And every challenge we face creates a more skillful self. #madamdirector#youngentrepreneurs #challenges @akotheesafaris

"Self-love doesn't mean you'll never fail. It means loving yourself not despite all of your challenges, but because of them. It means not seeing your flaws as flaws, but seeing them as challenges that make you stronger. It really is about seeing right through you and seeing your soul." 💛
