I was here

Sometimes music just hits the nail on the head, and more often than not, it’s a song that I need to hear.

I am crushing goals right now, travelling on an amazing adventure with my twin sister to celebrate our 30th birthdays (more on that later!).

On one long leg of our flight the other day, a song came on that made me sit bolt upright and pay full attention – in fact, i had to listen to it twice to make sure it all soaked in.

The lyrics resonated so strongly with me.

It is titled ‘I was here’, by the ever powerful Beyonce.

(Click here to watch her amazing performance at the United Nations ‘World Humanitarian Day’: “One day, one message, one goal. To inspire people all over the world to do something good, no matter how big or small, for someone else”.)

This song is completely aligned with living a life you love, and for that reason I wanted to share it here with you –

“I Was Here”

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forgetI was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was hereI want to say I lived each day, until I died
And know that I meant something in, somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will seeI was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will knowI was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was hereI just want them to know
That I gave my all, did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because
I was here

. . . Yup, some powerful lyrics right there.

It got me thinking about legacies.

What mark am I leaving on world?

What do I want to be remembered for?

Have you ever thought about what your legacy is?

We all leave a wake in the journey of our lives, and we all have the power to determine what that looks like. Actually, it’s our responsibility.

What are the things your heart wants to do but you keep putting them off? Get clear on why you are denying yourself and get in action to make them happen for you.

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” ― Shannon L. Alder

This trip is something my sister and I had the idea for a while ago. We made plans and made sh*t happen.  Now we are together for the first time in 14 months, making incredible memories that will last us a lifetime.

We could have put it off till a more convenient time, when we had more money, or more of our friends were available to join us. But truth is, there’s never a perfect time is there? All we have are these moments in time to seize with both hands.

We are ticking things off our bucket lists left, right, and centre – and it’s been more than we thought it would be.

I am so blessed, and feel so grateful to be sharing these experiences with my sister. I feel re-energised and inspired to make my contribution to the world.

We lived, we loved, we were here.

Girl time is so powerful & oh so necessary. It’s healing, it’s invigorating, it’s deep authentic connection & it’s empowering. 🙌🏼💕 I’m so grateful for all the amazing women in my life, those in this picture & beyond. Our chats, our laughs, our tears, our adventures. Thank you for inspiring & supporting me, I LOVE YOU! #sisterhood Congratulations Az on your gorgeous baby bump - I cannot wait to meet bubs very soon! 😍 Ps - the guys called this outing “bitches brunching” & I quite like that title 😆
Enough. ~~~~~ Enough. These few words are enough. If not these words, this breath. If not this breath, this sitting here. This opening to the life we have refused again and again. Until now. Until now. ~~~~~~ Beautiful words from my mindfulness & meditation teacher (author unknown). ✌🏼
Monday is the perfect time to set clear intentions for your week. How do you want to feel? Who do you want to be? Think beyond your to-do list & go deeper into your experience on this planet. 🙌🏼
Reflections in nature 🙌🏼😍🌲 Breathe it all in. . . #biophilia #mummanature #grounding #slowdown
Best. Wedding. Ever 🙌🏼💕💍🎉 #lovefest
We all know that we become like the 5 people we spend the most time with. So, WHY then do we continually let people in our lives that don’t deserve to be there? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Get curious with yourself - is it fear of rejection? Not wanting to hurt others? Worried what people will think of you? You don’t think you deserve any better? What is it for YOU? ** Remember ** Choose people, places, conversations & experiences wisely. . . You’ve got this 🙌🏼👊🏼
