new life

I will never forget the day my best friend’s baby was born.

Getting that phone call from the hospital felt surreal. In a daze I dropped everything to go and meet this little person. Everything felt like it was in slow motion, like in a dream.

I’d been staring at my girlfriends growing stomach for the past nine months wondering –  Who was inside? What do they look like? What are they going to be? When do we get to meet?

Walking into the hospital and seeing her with a baby girl bought on an onslaught of emotion. There were no words.

As I held this tiny bub, I could hardly even register her weight in my arms. I stared into her squinty little eyes and was completely in awe. Probably for the first time in my whole life.

Her name is Aurelia and she is the most precious thing I’ve ever seen.

It’s amazing how new life makes you evaluate your own.

I started thinking – How can I support her? What can I teach her? Who will I be for her? Fundamentally, it made me shift my focus away from self, and direct it towards others. For Aurelia I am committed to being a loving, fun, supportive friend and mentor.

I hope to make her journey through life a little better for having known me. I know my life is already better for knowing her.

Happy first birthday! xxx

Do you have any little people in your life?

If so, what have they taught you?

Who are you committed to being for them?

How good are fresh market blooms? (Specially natives). Such a simple & beautiful act of self love. 💕 The door obsession continues . . . Little rays of sunshine within this beautiful ancient Prague door ☀️😍 When you finally get over yourself; the bad habits, the limiting beliefs, the way critical self talk, the broken promises - that's when you're truly ready for change. 
Are you willing to let go of who you USED to be in order to become who you are MEANT to be?
