Pearl Grace Life: Give what you want

Give what you want

Give what you want

Pearl Grace Life: Give what you wantI’ve got a question for you.

What’s the one thing you want most? And no, I’m talking about the latest Ferrari or pair of Louboutin heels.

As nice as they both sound, gifts of the material variety are not what I’m talking about today.

I’m asking you to consider what one thing you crave the most in your life right now.

Do you want more confidence? More courage? More love? More companionship? 

Do you desire more success? More meaning? More peace? More passion?

Go on, dig deep and ask yourself what you really want right now?

At the time of writing this post, I want more patience.

It feels as though my little boy has hit the quote-unquote “terrible-twos” a year and half late.

He is driving us absolutely crazy and right now what I want, and desperately need for my own sanity, is more patience.

Now, all my habitual yoga and meditative practices seem fine when I’m lying on my mat in the calm and peaceful dawn of twilight while the rest of the house is asleep.

But when the creek of Ealy’s bedroom door breaks the silence of my meditative state I know that soon enough all hell will break lose for then next 12 hours.

So, I’ve been thinking, how can I get better at dealing with my ‘incredibly-adorable-but-makes-me-want-to-pull-my-hair-out’ son?

And then I remembered something that I heard a couple of years ago from author and personal development, Darren Hardy, in his book The Compound Effect.

He said, “Whatever I want more of in life, I’ve found the best way to get it is to focus on giving it to others… The ripple effect of helping others and giving generously of your time and energy is that you become the biggest beneficiary of your personal philanthropy”. 

And all of a sudden, right then and there, I decided a shift in my behaviour was necessary.

If I wanted to have more patience throughout the day then I needed to focus my attention and energy on demonstrating it to others.

That meant, not getting in a strop at the Post Office because the clerk was taking longer than I would’ve liked with another customer.

That meant not looking at my watch when Drew started to tell me about his day.

That meant not yelling at Riley for stopping “too much” to smell the grass and play with other dogs while on the morning walk.

Pearl Grace Life: Give what you wantNo. Right then and there, I decided that in order for me to invite patience in to my life I had to demonstrate a patient attitude to everyone with whom I came into contact with.

By doing this, I found that it naturally filtered through into my interactions with the Little Master of the house.

Now, I’m not saying that it works every time – heck, I’m still dealing with an unpredictable 3-year old – but for the most part it really helps.

As we embark on the start of a new week and as we approach Valentine’s Day, I want to pass this philosophy over to you.

Ask yourself, what do I want more of? And then ask yourself, who can I give more of that same thing to?

If you lack confidence, think about who you can give more confidence to. If you want more success in your life, think of the people you can inspire and help to attain success in their own lives.

And yes, as Valentine’s Day creeps closer and closer, this question is very befitting; If you want more love, who can you give more love to?

And I’m talking about all forms of love; from intimate love to platonic love, from the love you show to your children to the love you show to a stranger.

I believe that when you give more love you open yourself up to receiving more of the same. And that same rule applies to everything else that you choose to share/give to others.

Now, before I go, I want to leave you with this final thought. Don’t forget to include yourself in the list of worthy recipients.

Show more love to yourself this week. Show yourself more kindness, more tenderness, more patience and more respect.

When you screw up – as we all do from time to time – say nice things to yourself, don’t beat yourself up. Tell yourself, you live to fight another day and will do better next time.

So, my darlings, go now, and give it a try. Then come back and tell me how it impacted your life.

Go give what you want.

Love Nat x

Japan, Poison Ivy and Creativity

Japan, Poison Ivy and Creativity

Pearl Grace Life Create yourselfSo beautiful people, how psyched are you feeling about 2016?

Ready to get creative and set new challenges,  soar to new heights, achieve those big tantalising dreams, meet the love of your life?? All the above? 

Heck, why not?! Anything is possible, right? And you’re the only one who can make those dreams come true.

But the truth is nothing will change if you don’t change. I know that sounds harsh but it’s true.

If you want things to be different this year then you have to do things differently. In layman’s terms you have to change.

To think otherwise is a sign of insanity, you know, doing the same things over and over again expecting to get different results.

Now, I know you’re not crazy – well, at least I hope you’re not – and I would love for 2016 to be your best year ever.

I truly want it to surpass last year and for you to be better, happier and more fulfilled than ever before.

So, in today’s post, I want so share a story with you.  I heard it a few years ago and thenPearl Grace Life Creativity blog post stumbled across it again while clearing out my mailbox over Christmas.

On the surface it appears to be about the power of the mind but really I think its about something even bigger than that. I’ll be curious to hear your thoughts so be sure to tell me at the end.

As the title suggests, its about Japan, poison ivy and creativity. It goes a little something like this:

There was a fascinating study done in Japan where they blindfolded students and then told the students that their right arms were being rubbed with a poison ivy plant.

Afterwards, all the students reacted with classic symptoms of poison ivy, such as itching, boils and redness. But only a harmless shrub was actually used.

On the other arm, actual poison ivy was used but they were told it was simply a harmless shrub. Only 2 of the 13 students broke out with poison ivy symptoms. 

According to psychologists this is called Expectant Theory. This is when the expectations that the brain creates can be as real as those created by events in the real world.

Isn’t that incredible?!

Pearl Grace Life Creativity blog postIt proves how powerful your mind is.

So when it come to the new year and the “new” you, if indeed that’s one of your goals, then consider this, you will get out of life what you tell your brain is achievable and possible.

Think doom and gloom and that’s what you’ll get.

Think glass half full and nothing good ever happens to you and, yep that’s right, that’s what 206 will look like for you.

That’s why the adage: you get in life what you put in is so true. It’s said so often that it’s practically a cliché and it’s easy to become numb to what you hear all the time.

But the reality is that what you choose to focus on will eventually manifest into reality.

If you focus on stumping your toe on the bed in the middle of the night when you take that sleepy trip to the loo then you will, most likely sooner or later, stump your fricking toe.

I know that’s a silly example but you get the drift.

Tweet it out peeps: “Be the designer of your own destiny” – Oscar de la Renta via @PearlGraceLife

So, let’s wrap this up with a little food for thought, what are you telling your brain to create in 2016? What visions are you holding in your mind’s eye for the months ahead?

Are they hopeful, joyful, brimming with health, vitality, love and success? Are you foreseeing fun Pearl Grace Life Creativity posttimes with family and friends, trying new things, experiencing new adventures and creating lasting memories?

It’s all possible for you. Just you give your brain permission to create it.

That’s why vision boards are so powerful. They remind your brain of the things that are important to you and of the things you want to have or achieve in your life.

As creative beings – that’s all of us by the way, not just people who “quote-unquote” are ‘creative’ or have ‘creative and artistic jobs’ – it’s our responsibility to create the life we wish to enjoy.

And as creative beings our lives are a sum total of the things we create and I mean the total of everything; our relationships, our jobs, our health, our finances, our homes, our car, our style, our attitude, our habits and routines.  Everything.

Pearl Grace Life Blog Creativity PostBut the most incredible factor in all of this brain-and-creativity stuff is that our imaginations are limitless.

To para-phrase the great Napoleon Hill, “Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve” so don’t hold back.

Let 2016 be the year that you truly GO FOR IT.

Let it be the year that you become more and do more; more living, more laughing, more loving, more caring, more reading, more growing, more learning, more sharing, more touching, more listening and yes even more crying.

Let it be the year your permit your heart to feel more, be moved more, understand more and to appreciate more.

Can you imagine how incredible 2016 will be for you… Wait a minute, you can! … Well, then go on and create it.

Hey and don’t be shy, tell me how you intend to create a magical year in the comments below.

All my love,

Nat x

Pearl Grace Life: Anchors and engines

Anchors and Engines

Anchors and Engines

Pearl Grace Life: Anchors and EnginesI’d like to share a story with you.

The other day I was with a friend and we got to talking about our hopes and dreams for next year.

As much as I love chatting about this stuff with you here on the blog, I often find myself quite guarded when asked about my dreams, never really knowing how much of myself to share or what parts of my dreams to throw out into the conversation.

So I listened to her and then I started talking about the blog and my passion for writing and sharing ideas with like-minded people etc.

The more I talked the less I felt like I wasn’t being listened to but rather judged.

Her look of, “what-do-you-know-about-helping-people” was glaringly obvious.

I then found myself trying to justify my intentions, “Well, you know, I’m an avid reader and love listening to self-improvement material and I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my life and relationships. I also love people and really want to share these tips and ideas with my amazing readers on the blog because I truly feel it can make a difference in their lives. And don’t we all deserve to be happy? The world needs happier people, right?… blah blah blah”

By the end of my bordering on D.D. sounding speech – desperate and depressing – I was quite literally Pearl Grace Life: Anchors and Enginessick of the sound of my own voice.

It was clear by the look on her face that her mind was already made up and  I was a fool to think I was anything special or that I could make a difference.

It sucked and later that night, I realised that not only did her silence and disapproving eyebrows leave me wanting to “explain” myself but it also left me doubting and second-guessing who I am and what I could achieve.

My buzz was killed. I mean well and truly annihilated and left on the battlefield where other hopes and dreams wither away and die at the hands of the big bad naysayers.

It would come as no surprise that I felt pretty shitty. Perhaps, she was right, “Who am I? What gives me the right to write and share my thoughts with the world? Holy crap, maybe she’s right!”

I’m sharing this story with you because if you’ve ever had something like that happen to you then I want you to know that you’re not alone. I feel you.

We all have people – it may even be our partners or family members – who love to be our “reality-check” when in actual fact I prefer to regard them as life’s kill-joys, buzz-zappers and dream-snatchers.

Tweet it out, peeps: “Don’t let someone else’s “no” resonate so loudly that it drowns out the inner “yes” beating in your heart. ” @PearlGraceLife

Pearl Grace Life: Anchors and EnginesIf you’ve ever been in a situation where you’ve been made to question yourself. Or you’ve not gone after something that you really wanted because of another person’s limiting beliefs then I urge you not to listen them.

Instead do some ‘social decluttering’ – as in tell those said folks to take a flying jump – then prove them wrong, take action and be amazing.

A wise person once said, “You can’t hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life”. So, reviewing the people we hang around with –  including our friends and family – is massively important.

But another thing that’s equally important is to always be conscious of the kind of friend we are presenting to the world.

For example, How do you show up? Are you positive, supportive and inspiring to be around? Are you an awesome friend, dependable, loyal and loving? Are you everything that you would look for in those closest to you and what you hope people would say about you in your absence?

If not, why not?

As you know we get out of life what we put in. So, if you want your friends and family members to be incredible and meet you on a level that makes you feel happy to be around them then you need to exemplify those exact same qualities yourself.

Having said that we all know people who are stubborn, pig-headed, and down right sour-pusses and no amount of good cheer and positive vibes will change that.

No matter how much sunshine you bring to the party to brighten up their day, that grey gloomy cloud that holds permanent residency over their heads will remain in situ regardless of your good intentions. C’est la vie, baby.

But in all other cases, be the best person you possibly can be and try not to let negative outside influencers distract you or throw you off course from achieving all that you imagine possible in the world and for you.

As we wrap up, I would love to leave you with these wonderful words by model and Pearl Grace Life: Anchors and Enginesbusiness mogul, Kathy Ireland in an interview she gave for Success Magazine:

“Do you surround yourself with anchors or engines? In life there are engines that propel us forward, believe in us and are supportive. And then there are the anchors who weigh everything down. It’s important to stop and think are you surrounding yourself with anchors or engines. Are you an anchor or an engine?”

I love her take on this and think it’s something we can all consider as we move forward towards building, re-building (as the case may be) and strengthening our relationships with friends and loved ones.

And you know what, if you’ve ever been in a situation when someone has been an asshole, – sorry, I mean an anchor – then perhaps its worth firing up your own engine so you can propel yourself in the direction of your heart’s desire.

Never forget that everything you need to succeed and to be your happiest possible self lies within you; what you learn, achieve and the people you meet along the way are your beautiful bonuses.

What you waiting for, go “whip your hair” and be incredible,

All my love,

Nat x

Sleep your way to the top, without compromising your integrity

Pearl Grace Life, Sleep your way to the top I’ve got some interesting facts to share with you today.

Did you know that sleeping more hours could help you loose weight?

Did you know that napping during the day reduces stress and aids productivity?

Did you know that sleeping more soundly could reduce your risk of severe illnesses, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and even some cancers. 

Well, it’s true.

However the sad reality is that many of us are sleep deprived.

We are trying to function; hold down jobs, run the household, bring up children, sustain healthy relationships and look after ourselves on an empty tank.

No wonder we feel stressed out, tired, unengaged and stretched too thin on a regular basis.

Here’s the thing, when I was younger I would do what I called “pull all nighters” and I did this all the time.

This basically meant that I’d stay up all night.

Why you might ask? 

And the truth was to watch TV.

Yep, I spent most of those precious nocturnal hours watching mind-Pearl Grace Life, Sleep your way to the topnumbing TV.

Today, my mind boggles at the thought of how ridiculous this was but I did it.

If I had known back then what I know now then I probably wouldn’t have made such insane choices.

When I think back to my life back then I was suffering with cases of eczema,  had stiff joints, lacked energy and felt – for want of a better word – tired.  (It’s like, Duurrhh!)

Fast forward a few years and The Universe, God, or [insert your choice of higher power here] hands me a bambino.

All of a sudden the one thing I wanted more than anything else was sleep.

Between the round the clock breastfeeds, nappy changes and eating, I craved sleep on a massive scale.

I wanted to sleep like it was going out of fashion but sleep was the first thing to go, closely followed by sex, a tidy house and a neatly waxed bikini line.

Here’s the thing, amazing gifts like children make the sleep deprivation worthwhile but when there’s no justifiable reason to hold off putting your head to your pillow and catching some uber important Zzz’s then I just don’t get why we wouldn’t choose to sleep.

Many of us believe that we are being more productive if we choose to work longer hours, stay up late to finish off the report or sacrifice our sleep for trips to the gym.

But the truth is you would be are far more productive if you switched off the computer an hour earlier and took some time to unwind with a bath and book instead.

Tweet it out, peeps: Sleep is a performance enhancing tool and your single greatest free resource in achieving a more abundant and joyful life @PearlGraceLife. 

Here’s something worth noting…

People who tend to sleep better tend to be happier, which in turn makes them feel less stressed.

When we feel less stressed we tend to treat people better and approach situations in a more measured and compassionate way.

This in turn leads to a feeling of having stronger bonds and connections with people.

This can benefit both our professional and personal relationships leading to greater productivity, happiness and success all round.

You could literally sleep your way to the top and improve every area of your life; in business, health and well-being, your attitude, finances and personal life, just by choosing to make sleep a priority instead of seeing it as just “the thing we do” to join up the days.

You know that phrase, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. Well, I can’t think of a more ridiculous notion!

The sad truth is you might wind up dead a lot sooner than you’d like by not getting enough hours sleep while you’re in the company of the living.

Now, we’re all unique and therefore may not all require the same amount of sleep.

But as a general rule most of us need somewhere between 6-10 hours a night to enable us to function at full throttle.

Pearl Grace Life, Sleep your way to the topThe truth is, the better we sleep the better we feel.

In fact the more we sleep the better it is for our hearts, brains, internal organs, skin, hair, nails, you name it.

Instead of buying into the next beauty product that claims to reduce wrinkles and remove bags from under your eyes, just hit the sack a littler earlier every night.

Think of sleep as natures way of giving you everything your body needs to function providing you don’t neglect it.

By the way, sleep is as important in the health and well being of men as it is for women.

I know guys that take sleep for granted and almost wear their lack of sleep like a badge of honour. It’s crazy!

So, share this post with your partner, your spouse, your main squeeze, friend, colleagues or anyone else you think could benefit.

It serves the world, the economy and the health care system if we all made a conscious effort to catch more shut eye.

Trust me, with more Zzz’s under your belt you’ll feel and look incredible and people will start to wonder, what’s your secret?

And when you tell them you’ve been sleeping, they’ll be stumped because it sounds way to easy!

Now, I’ve put together 15 easy tips on how achieve a more restful slumber here.

And as always, tell me what you think.

Some of you have been super-sweet by sending me personal emails – I love hearing from you so please keep them coming.

I love hearing your thoughts, ideas, and take on the random things I ramble on about so thank you so much

Also feel free to share your comments below because your insight and perspective could help, inspire and increase the happiness level in another person’s life.

How to sleep better: Tips for getting a better night’s sleep

Pearl Grace Life, How to sleep betterHey beautiful people,

If you haven’t already checked out my post on sleeping your way to the top then hop on over to it here.

This post provides some tips on how to sleep better and feel rested and rejuvenated:

1. Eat a light dinner up to 2 hours before lights out.
A light but still nutritious meal is easier for the body to breakdown and digest. You won’t feel full and uncomfortable when bedtime rolls up, instead you’ll feel content and satiated and ready to sleep.

2. Exercise daily even if you can only a 30 minute brisk walk. Do it early in the day. You’ll feel pumped and energised afterwards which will put you on the right path for the rest of the day. Come bedtime you should feel tired and ready to hit the sack.

3. Air your room 30 minutes before you crawl between the sheets. A cool room has been proven to create a more restful sleep.

4. 10-15 minutes of quiet mindfulness, meditation and deep breathing before you sleep.
This calms the mind and relaxes the body – a good state for you to be in for you drift off.

5. Invest in good quality mattress and pillows and clean your bedding regularly.
So many people sleep on poor quality mattress and on pillows that don’t support the head and neck. In all honesty one of the best places to sleep is on the floor because its hard and level.

But if the floor ain’t your thing then a firm mattress that promotes breathability is ideal.

Also, find a pillow that provides comfort and support or do away with it altogether. I know it might sound strange but sleeping without a pillow and allowing your body to lie in complete alignment is better for your muscles, circulation and oxygen flow . But I guess that depends on whether you prefer to sleep on your back, front or sides.

If you suffer with neck or back pain then get professional advice before making a purchase.

6. Burning essential oils in your home. You don’t have to burn them in your bedroom in case you find them too overpowering but a fragrance like lavender has been proven to calm the mind and aid relaxation.

7. Darken the room with binds and/or curtains and use an eye mask if your room is still quite bright.

If you live on a busy road consider using ear plugs to drown out some of the outside noise or opt for a “white noise” appliance, which might help.

8. Reading has been proven to relax the brain and body. Read whatever you fancy but here’s a little tip that has worked for me, read a few pages of something  happy, positive or inspiring. You’ll still get tired but reading something like that will trigger the reactors in the brain so it can conjure up fantastic ideas throughout the night while you sleep.

9. Wear lose fitting clothes in bed or better yet sleep in your birthday suit. Let it all hang out, baby! Give your skin opportunity to breathe.

10. Avoid stimulants such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine as much as 5 hours before bedtime.

11. When you’re tired, sleep.
I know this sounds obvious but yet so many of us, myself included, don’t do it.
Don’t fight it. In fact a lot of companies won’t mind if you grab 20 minutes of shut eye in your lunch break because napping is known to increase alertness and productivity.

And when it comes to bedtime only go to bed you feel tired.

There are few things in life more frustrating than tossing and turning yourself to sleep so resist putting yourself through this ordeal.

If you find yourself staring at the ceiling after 20 minutes then get up, go into another room, read a book or do some relaxation exercises until you begin to tire.

12. Avoid visual stimulation up to an hour before you get into bed.
I know this is difficult in the hyper-connected, always switched on world that we live in but this means no TV, not laptops, no iPhones, no iPads etc.

Try to keep your bedroom a Devise-Free-Zone. Don’t worry, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube will still be there in the morning.

13. No heavy chit-chat before bed.
Bedtime is not the right time to talk about emotional topics.
Do it at some other time of day. If your partner wants to engage in a heated discussion when your in your jim-jams then suggest you discuss it the following day.

14. If switching your brain off is a struggle then take up journalling or get in the habit of writing down what’s on your mind before you get into bed. That way you clear your mind of the worry and prepare it for relaxation instead.

15. Avoid drinking too much liquids before bed.
The theory behind this is to prevent you from waking up in the night to go to the loo.
Now, this is an interesting one because if you’re like me and falling back to sleep after a trip to the loo is easy then I wouldn’t worry too much about this point.
However if you struggle to get back to sleep then give it a try.

Are you lying? Pearl Grace Life

Are you lying?

Share Button

Are you lying about who you really are?

Are you lying about who you really are

I had a really strange encounter with a family member the other day.

I went round to her house and she had cooked lunch for us.

She had gone to great effort and presented a generous amount of food on the kitchen counter for me to dip in and out of as much as I liked throughout our time together.

The thing is when we spoke the previous week about meeting up I had no idea that she was going to go to so much trouble.

If I knew, I wouldn’t have set myself the challenge to juice it the same day.

So, I turned up to her house with a handsome supply of green juices in hand, which I quickly and rather sheepishly (after seeing how much trouble she had gone to) stowed away in her fridge for later. Talk about awkward.

Now, it’s worth mentioning that this particular relative is very sensitive. She would’ve taken it personally if I didn’t eat her food and if I didn’t acknowledge my pleasure whilst doing so.

But to make an awkward situation even more difficult, the food that she had so lovingly prepared was stuff that I haven’t eaten in months. (In another post I’ll tell you about my life since abstaining from meat and dairy but that’s a whole other story.)

Back to the post. So, when I was confronted by a pot of chicken stew and a side dish of potato salad with eggs and mayonnaise I didn’t know what to do or where to run and hide!

So, I lied.

Tweet it out, peeps“This above all; to thine own self be true” – William Shakespeare via @PearlGraceLife

I lied to her when I said I was full after my last green juice.

I felt her eyes on me as I sparingly added a small spoonful of rice to my plate and a drizzle of gravy so I lied.

But I also lied to myself. By pretending that I was happy to eat when in fact I had planned on drinking the juices that I had so gleefully made a few hours earlier, I was committing a serious sin. Lying.

To be honest I came away feeling a little disgusted with myself.

And it was at this point of self-loathing that I started to wonder, why did I do it?

And more to the point, why do so many of us, out of fear of being judged or criticised, “pretend”, “gloss over” or “fake” who we really are.

Despite the fact that I had told her I was juicing it that day, she still would have been offended if I didn’t pile up my plate.

Now, in her defence once upon a time I would have done precisely that.

I absolutely love her cooking but in recent months I’ve also changed my diet and have been feeling all the better for it.

Now, here’s the kicker, if I had explained that to her, I would have run the risk of hurting her feelings – not something I wanted to do.

Are you lying? Pearl Grace Life blogSo, instead I pretended that I was hungry enough to have a little bit of food to avoid any upset.

I was guilty of lying to her and as a trade off for sparing her feelings I felt like shit.

I felt like I had let myself down for not sticking to the goal I had set myself that day.

But more importantly I felt bad because I hadn’t acted in alignment with my true self and my true intentions.

Basically I lied about who I really was in that moment.

You see, in that moment, I was supposed to be healthy and disciplined but I didn’t follow through. I let myself down.

Instead I sacrificed my own happiness in that moment – which actually lasted the rest of the weekend because every time I thought about it I cringed – so that I could safeguard another person’s feelings.

Now, let me just jump off here and say I’m not suggesting you stop caring about other people. That’s not what I’m saying at all. Far from it.

I’m just saying that when you are doing something that is positive and that is making a transformational difference in your life, either personally or professionally, you should be proud of yourself.

You should be happy and take pride in your achievements and feel enthusiastic about the goals you set yourself.

The last thing you should feel is awkward or embarrassed.

I know my example might seems a little trivial but I think the point is a valid one.

In your pursuit of greater meaning, happiness, deeper love, more success, a real sense of vitality, abundance and joy in your life, whatever it may be that you consider to be of enriching benefit to you and those you love, don’t let anybody steal your truth.

Don’t allow a single person, situation or circumstance to take you off track or make you doubt or question who you really are or who you truly want to be.

You are amazing and incredible, never forget that.

Here’s to living in your truth,
Love Nat x

Before you go and live in an awesome way please share your thoughts to today’s post:

Have you ever lied, denied, pretended or faked who you really are, how you feel or believe and how did it make you feel? And more importantly, what did you decide to do in the future to overcome the lying trap?

Pearl Grace Life, Worry or word up

Worry or wise up

Worry or wise up

Tell me, do you ever find yourself worrying about something that you have absolutely no control over?

I do.

Do you ever stress about the opinions of other people?

I’ve been guilty of this too.

The truth is it’s only natural for us to worry about things we can’t control and to stress about the opinions of others, which is again something we cannot control.

The comforting thing is there are a couple of easy ways to combat this so that being worried no longer preoccupies your time.

This is something I’ve found to work really well, especially recently when I found myself stressed out when Ealy started nursery.

I used to worry from the moment he left to the moment he returned home.

In the free hours that I had to work, exercise, plan and prepare for the day and forthcoming week, I would be distracted by my worrying thoughts about his safety, his well-being, whether he was happy or if he ate enough during the day.

Throughout the day I would worry about one of these things at least half a dozen times so much so that often I’d reach the end of the day and had barely applied myself long enough or with enough focus to achieve anything substantial.

Quite frankly, I was a pathetic mess.

So when, I discovered this beautiful concept I decided to start applying this simple strategy and it has result in a calmer and a more productive Nat all round.

Tweet it out peeps: Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its troubles it just empties today of it’s strength @PearlGraceLife

Wise up or worry

Here’s the thing, we only really have to choices in life when it comes to this.

We can either worry or not worry. That’s it.

But I think it’s super cool to believe in a force bigger than yourself.

That force might be God, the universe, lucky stars, crystals, fairies, whatever. But something that makes you feel like you belong to something bigger than lil’ ol’ you.

You have to believe that this larger entity has your back. That it’s cheering you on. Wants you to rock it out in an awesome way and is conspiring to work in your favour.

Here’s how I see it..

I’m just a little gem in this crazy and fabulous world. In believing whole-heartedly that Mother Earth will handle my worries and cares far better than I can allows me to operate in a place of faith, which is in itself quite a beautiful thing.

Now, when I say faith I don’t just mean of the religious kind although that’s absolutely fine if that’s your thing.

I mean faith in the more generic sense of the word, as in having complete confidence that this larger force will carry my cares for me so I don’t have to.

I think prayer and meditation is a great way to free up your worry.

Remove the stress of worrying from your being and give it to whoever or whatever you believe brings you good luck and good fortune.

Trust fully in whatever you believe in to take care of the problem so that you no longer have to carry the weight of the burden on your shoulders, in your heart or in your head anymore.

So, for me, whenever one of those worrying thoughts about Ealy being at nursery starts to present itself I send out a little prayer. I do this immediately and it takes less than 5 secs.

The moment I think, “I hope Ealy is happy, unhurt and content” I close my eyes send it out as a message to the the big blue sky and whisper something like, “Hey, M.E (aka Mother Earth), watch over Ealy today, keep him safe, fill him with joy and happiness.” Then open my eyes, smile and carry on with whatever I’m doing. That’s it.

I don’t worry. Instead I send my wish out into the world. And carry on living reassured in the faith that Mother E will do everything she can to fulfil my wish.

I know this might sound a little whacky but it works if you have faith in something bigger than yourself and if you understand that worrying alone will not change the situation or create a certain outcome. So, why bother do it.

Worrying is futile. When it comes down to it, you have one of two choices: you can either worry or wise up. You can’t really do both.

Now, if the idea of praying gives you an uncomfortable feeling then reframe it and call it something you are more comfortable with like a love request or a wishful blessing.

Something that doesn’t unsettle you but still enables you to let go of the worrying woes so you can and live, love and laugh in the NOW.

Here’s to a worry-free weekend.

Lots of love

Fill me in… Do you find you ever worry about things you cannot change? Do you ever worry and pray simultaneously (not such an uncommon thing)? But let me know in the comments below.

Wise words to consider from Miss Taylor Swift about negative people and vibes. But I think the same idea can be applied to your worries – just shake it off, baby!

Pearl Grace Life, What's your fuel?

What’s your fuel?

Share Button

What’s your fuel?

Pearl Grace Life, What's your fuel?Ok. ‘Fess, up what’s in your cupboard and fridge right now? What have you been putting in your face recently?

Fair play it’s been Easter and it might be a little unfair of me to put you on the spot but as a general rule how well do you eat? In other words, what’s your fuel?

Now, it’s not my style to get all preachy about the do’s and don’t’s of food because I’m not perfect and I like the odd cookie and glass of wine myself. (shoot me)

And don’t worry I’m not gonna ride your butt like Zorro in this post and make you feel bad about yourself – heck, we’re in this together.

But in honour of World Health Day (April 7th) I thought I’d share my thoughts on this.

I’ve also included a link to my delicious and gloriously green salad recipe at the bottom which will get your body rocking and shaking with disco fever delight.

“That’s the way, a-ha a-ha, I like it a-ha a-ha…” (Love it!) Ok, back to the post…

The truth is, if you’re passionate and committed to living a life of abundance, joy, meaning and fulfilment – you know all the things I rave on about here on PGL – then it will be an uphill struggle to achieve all of those wonderful things if you’re not conscious and aware of the fuel that you put in your engine.

Here’s the thing, a jockey wouldn’t feed his thoroughbred burgers and chips because he knows better than that.

And you can bet your bottom dollar that the mechanical whiz kids over at Ferrari aren’t filling their world class race cars with the wrong kinda fuel – that would be insane.

Yet so many of us are filling our own engines with dangerous, toxic and hazardous fuel.

Hey, its cool to have fun and enjoy the food you eat. If eating something sweet, having a glass of wine or getting your chops round a fillet of beef floats your boat then I’m to gonna stand in your way.

I’m not here to tell you to stop – that’s not my place – furthermore I enjoy tasty treats too.

As the French say, Tout dans la modération, même avec modération (Everything in moderation, including moderation.)

All I’m suggesting is we start to view our bodies as championship racehorses and  Formula1 race cars because we are valuable commodities worth treasuring.

So, let’s appreciate, respect and honour the vessels we were given.

Show your body love by feeding it with as much nutrient rich food as you can.

Your body will love you all the more for it. And when you love it in this way it will do it’s part in making sure you operate in a peak state as much as possible.

At the end of the day your body wants to support you fully so that you wake up every morning feeling unstoppable, unbeatable and formidable.

I’m not really sharing anything here that you don’t already know to be true but I know it can be difficult to make the right food choices.

So, to help you get started here are a couple of suggestions:

1. Pace yourself

If you’re a little uncertain about changing the food you eat then I reckon small and gradual steps is the way to go.

Slowly phase out the ‘less ideal’ option as you slowly add in the good stuff. For example, where you would normally use white potatoes swap it for sweet potatoes instead.

Before you know it you’ll notice how awesome you feel eating the good stuff that you won’t crave the bad shizzle anymore, well, at least not as much.

2. Jump right in

The second option is for those of you who prefer to jump in at the deep end and go for it.

For those of you wanting to get militant on this I suggest you grab the Bull of Health by the horns and take control.

Go to your store cupboard or pantry and chuck out everything that contains ingredients that you cannot pronounce or don’t know. Go do it now. No excuses and no justifications. If you know it’s not good for you or your family, Bin It.

If a guy in a white coat has fiddled with it then chuck it out however if it’s what mother nature created then chomp on it proudly.

Get militant!

Our challenge

Last month Drew and I set ourselves the challenge to only eat and drink food that contained ingredients that we could pronounce.

It’s alarming the amount of ‘added this’ and ‘added that’ we found in the food in our cupboards – some of which claimed to be healthy!

It was a month of going back to basics and we felt all the better for it.

I challenge you to give it a try. And in honour of World Health Day, this week is as good a time as ever to start.

You don’t have to do it for a whole month but try it for at least a week and see how you feel.

Why not share your experiences with me in the comments below.

And to help you get started check out my super green salad – it’s like spring in a bowl.

To your health and awesomeness,

Nat x

Love

Pearl Grace Life. LoveI love this. I saw this video and simply had to share it with you guys.

Not only did it make me smile from start to finish but it really touched me. I felt happy for the rest of the day.

It’s about love. It’s about universal, unbiased, whole-hearted and true love. It’s beautiful.

I know we live in a world where many of us are trapped by dogma – either our own or by the opinions of those around us – but at the end of the day the one thing that we can all relate to, understand and feel an affiliation with, is love.

I know it’s a cliché to say this but love is incredibly powerful.

I believe that in conjunction with education (self-education in particular), love is our strongest and kindest weapon in the fight against injustice, war, famine, disease, poverty, discrimination and the rest.

In our ability and willingness to love each other without judgement we open ourselves up to feeling and expressing compassion and empathy. As a result we are often left with a desire to connect, help and support each other.

I hope the video makes you feel happy today. I hope it makes you smile. I hope it makes you love harder, stronger and more deeply.

If there has ever been a ‘block’ in your heart to love everyone equally then I hope this video prompts a heart shift, even if it’s only small.

I believe that we are all born with love in our hearts. It’s ours from day one and in that moment it’s pure, unaffected and unspoiled. It’s the one thing that every baby has in common.

And I believe that the same innocent spot that we had in our hearts as wee little ones is still there today.

I love videos like this because they remind me to tap into that special non-judgmental place. To welcome diversity and to invite into my heart a sense of oneness. I think Bob said it best…

As the video above shows love doesn’t discriminate it only connects, heals, strengthens and blossoms. It blossoms into something even more wonderful… and that is more love, more abundance, more joy, more meaning, more peace.

Here’s to your abundance. All my love,
Nat x

Pearl Grace Life You are good enough

You are good enough

You are good enough

Pearl Grace Life You are good enoughIf you’ve ever questioned whether you are good enough then today’s post is for you.

If you’ve ever thought, I’m not worthy of_____________(fill in the blank) then don’t beat yourself up. Just know that you are worthy and you’re not alone.

The truth is many of us tell ourselves that we’re not deserving of love, success, happiness, money, friendship, peace, and the rest.

But as I talk about in the post Story time these are the stories we tell ourselves because in many instances we are afraid of what will happen if we reach out and actually attain that promotion, that relationship, that new skill that can transform the quality and trajectory of our lives, that physique we’ve always wanted and the career we’ve only ever dreamed about.

It’s therefore easier for us to remain in a place that is comfortable instead of challenging ourselves to achieve what is scary and uncertain.

Even if we’re not entirely happy with our current situation many of us will stay in the same place because it is what we’ve always known; it’s comfortable and it’s familiar. (For more on this check out the post Story time HERE).

But today, I’m asking you to doubt yourself, to question yourself and to feel slightly insecure.

I’m asking you to tap into the thing that makes you feel vulnerable.

Wait a sec, I know what you’re thinking, What, the frick! I came to your blog to feel happy and inspired, man, what the hell is this shizzle?

Well, here’s the thing, realising that you’re human, imperfect, and vulnerable is an important exercise on the path to really finding, or as the case may be increasing your level of joy and happiness.

It’s OK to have moments of self doubt. In fact they’re gonna happen whether you want them to or not. But when they do you should acknowledge how you feel in that moment- and own it.

Say to yourself, “Mmm. ok, I’m not feeling happy about myself right now… I’m feeling a little self-conscious, uncomfortable, ashamed, embarrassed, (whatever.)” Then say, “Ok. let me sit with these feelings for a sec.”

Don’t brush your emotions to one side or under the metaphorical rug. Don’t deny those feelings exist. Accept them because they are a part of you.

You can’t go through life loving and celebrating only the great parts of your character but shunning the parts that you don’t like. No can do, baby.

As the video explains, vulnerability is a powerful tool.

When we open ourselves up to being vulnerable  we also open ourselves up to receiving joy, love, happiness and more meaningful and deeper connections with the people around us.

We all have light and dark sides to our personality – they are what completes us. Being truly happy is about being honest with yourself about who you really are.

It may sound harsh to say this but you’re not perfect and neither am I. Yet despite this glorious fact we are still good enough.

You are good enough to be, do and achieve everything your heart conjures up and whatever your mind plots to achieve.

You are worthy of all the happiness in the world NOT because you are perfect and do all the right things – but just because you are NOT perfect but deserve them anyway.

And if you are passionate, ambitious, dedicated, kind, compassionate, generous and a student of life then you are well on your way to actualising whatever your mind can conceive. The world truly is your oyster.

Let me share this with you…

When I first became a mum, I was scared. Scratch that, I was PETRIFIED!!

I was terrified because I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. And when I finally thought I had it sussed Ealy would go through a new phase that left me stumped again.

I was constantly wondering if my mum would be proud of me and if she would support the decisions I was making as a parent. (Confession: this is still a hard one for me to get over – it’s a work in progress.)

I was scared that I didn’t have all the answers, that I was really bad at geography and still counted on my fingers.

Being Ealy’s mum was – and still is – one of the biggest and scariest challenges I’ve ever had to face.

But it was made all the harder because I wanted to be the “perfect mummy” or at least I wanted to be as close to perfect as possible.

Now, logic and life had taught me that “perfection” didn’t exist but nonetheless I still struggled with this feeling that I wasn’t good enough.

Then over time, I found myself again. My old self. My pre-mum self. That person that was up for a laugh, ridiculous fun and who danced around the house like a lunatic.

She began to reappear and man, was I happy to see her again.

I realised in that moment that the best mummy- not the perfect mummy – but the best mummy Ealy could ever have was me.

With all my quirks, flaws, imperfections and rough edges, I was still the best mummy he could ask for because all he needed from me was love… and that was something I had in abundance and I never doubted my ability to shower him with it.

So, I think being happy is a state of mind and heart. Understanding that you are worthy of everything you have in life right now – the good and the not so good – is important if you want to find inner peace and joy.

You aren’t perfect – you never will be – and thank the lucky stars for that.

You will only ever be the best YOU that you can be in that moment.

Sometimes you’ll soar and sometimes you’ll suck.

But in those sucky times you’re still as fabulous, as splendid, as marvellous and as wonderful as you could possibly hope to be.

Believing in your heart that you are worthy of all the great things that life has to offer regardless of your shortcomings is the way to live.

You are MORE than good enough. I know it.

All my love,
Nat x

Pearl Grace Life The Power of Words

Change your words Change your world

Change your words Change your world

Pearl Grace Life Change the worldI saw this video and it reminded me of the power of words so I wanted to share it with you.

How we describe our situations and how we perceive the world around us is incredibly powerful and ultimately affects how we treat people and how they treat us.

For example, let me paint you this picture.

It’s a grey Monday morning and is raining cats and dogs outside my window. Ealy had a restless night and spent most of it tossing and turning in our bed and I woke up with a stiff neck.

That’s one way I could see it. Or I could say,

Last night was amazing because I got loads of hugs and kisses from my little man and this morning I woke up in a warm and comfy bed. I love the sound of rain against my window pane and I can’t wait to have an awesome week.

Both are true but the one I choose to express to the world and most importantly tell myself will either help or hinder me.

Which version would you subscribe to?

The thing is, how we choose to see the world is massively important and affects the quality of our lives.

If I’m all doom and gloom then I’ll probably find myself alone a lot of the time. After all who wants to hang around with a sourpuss?

Most of us like to be around people who make us feel good.  We like to be in the company of people who brighten up our day and people who lift us up when we’re down. We love people who support us and who see the best in us.

It’s all about the power of the words and this video beautifully exemplifies that changing our words can change our world”.

So, this week I challenge you to think about the words you use to describe your situation.

Choose your words carefully and where possible attempt to find the positive and beauty in your experiences.

If you choose to see your circumstances as optimistic and hopeful then you open yourself up to receiving more of the same in your life.

By the way, I’m not talking about being fake. That won’t work.

I mean let’s be real, sometimes shitty things happen and it’s OK to be pissed off when they do. We’re human beings full of a wide spectrum of emotions and we are free to express them as we feel fit.

But perhaps in that moment you can find something in the situation that makes you laugh so you can brush it off and move on.

No more glass half empty excuses. Keep your glass topped up and add a fresh, squeeze of lemon juice or some sparkly cordial, throw in some crushed ice and a decorative swirl of lime peel. Sit back and enjoy, baby!

Remember miraculous and beautiful things happen to people who believe in miracles and see the beauty in what surrounds them.

So, how do you see the world?  Can you think of a time when things seemed bad but you were able to see the good in the situation? How did it affect you and those around you?

Pearl Grace Life Thanks

Happy tears

Happy tears

think of you Pearl Grace LifeI cried the other day when I watched this video.

I confess they were happy tears but I felt so moved by this sweet video that I couldn’t hold them back.

For so many reasons the topic and content really resonated with me.

I wanted to share it in hope that it may do the same for you.

After I watched it I was left thinking about the people in my life that I’m eternally grateful for.

The people who have shown me relentless support, backed me in every endeavour, been my biggest champions and who have always been there when I needed them.

Can you think of people like that in your life? – I’m sure you agree that those individuals are pretty special.

By the end of the video I was inspired to take action.

It was time to take my feelings of gratitude to the next level.

Last weekend my brother and his girlfriend came to stay.

This provided me with the perfect opportunity to express my gratitude.

I love my brother. We’ve been through a lot together and although we’ve not always agreed, I’ve always known that our bond was unbreakable.

We’re closer today than we ever have been and our relationship goes from strength to strength.

He’s an incredible person and means so much to me. So, I decided to tell him precisely that when he stayed over.

He was touched and so was I by his reaction. Together we all had a beautiful weekend; great food, drink, fresh air, conversation. That weekend we created some happy and lasting memories.

But I wasn’t done.

As the weekend came to an end I turned my grateful eye to Drew.

We say we love each other all the time and as lovely as that may sound, we do run the risk of saying it so much that the words lose their meaning.

So, I decided to write him a card outlining the reasons why he’s so special to me.

Granted we do this in cards to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries but this time there was nothing specific in the calendar and no event that the rest of the world we’re participating in.

Because there was ‘no official’ reason to writing such a card, it surprised him.

He said it meant so much. It now sits proudly on his bedside table so he can see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

I didn’t realise how much expressing my level of love and gratitude for other people would affect me.

It’s been incredible.

I’ve felt in a really good mood since. Happier, if that’s possible. It’s hard to explain…

All I can suggest is that you give it a try yourself and see the benefits work for you and those you love.

One final point…

Here’s the thing, we all think beautiful and magnificent things about other people (or at least we should) but rarely do we tell them.

Chances are those people that you adore and think the world of have no idea how you truly feel and the difference that they’ve made to your life.

Tell them why you value them so much. Tell them how much they’ve influenced you. And how special they are to you.

It might feel a little uncomfortable at first – even if you’ve known that person for your entire life – but you’ll start to feel better when you really get into it.

You may feel nervous and tempted to hold back a little but try not to. Allow your anxieties to dissipate and open up your heart.

And here’s the cherry sweet bit in all of this… What you give to others you get in return.

The goodness you put out into the world will find its way back to you but you have to start by giving.

As Jim Rohn said, “Giving starts the receiving process”.

Trust me, the love will boomerang back to you because that’s the nature of the universe.

I know if you’re reading this then you’re a happy and loving soul so doing this will be in alignment with everything you stand for and hold dear.

Just remember, you’ve gotta show love and express gratitude from a sincere and genuine heart felt place.

No flattery, ok. Mean what you say and say how you truly feel.

Go all out and express yourself fully. Feel it to the point of happy tears.

So, why not pick up the phone and make that call? It might be the best chat you ever have.

Who are you grateful for and why?

Badge of Honour

Michaela DePrince Pearl Grace Life I was wondering, have you ever felt like you were different? Like you just didn’t fit in?

Have you ever let the feeling of being different stop you from going after the things in life that you truly want?

Or perhaps you were convinced by other people that you could never be anything more than your present situation or than the conditions you were born into…

Well, today, as you embark on a new week, I wanted to urge you wear your difference like a badge of honour.

Let your quirks and your unique qualities be the beautiful aspects of your character that you celebrate and that you proudly show the world.

Never let anyone convince you that you are inept of achieving all that is possible in the world and possible for you.

My wish for you this week is, that you find it in your heart to turn those parts of yourself that you were once ashamed of, or embarressed by, or felt insecure about, into a badge of honour that you show the world with your head held high.

Be proud to be different; to look different, to speak different, to work differently and to dream differently.

It’s OK to stand out from the cloud. It’s OK to be different. In fact it’s incredible.

You’re a star like everyone else so shine bright. You deserve to soar like an eagle to the heights of your biggest, scariest and most triumphant goals.

To rise to the pinnacle of your heart’s deepest desires so you can actualise your dreams.

That’s what I wish for you this week. And I’ll do the same.

Let this week be the turning point.

Be proud of who you are – every single part of your being – and share your splendour with the world.

After all, how dull would the world be if we were all the same?

Michaela DePrince… 

I’m sure as you watched and listened to Michaela’s story you were moved.

I first discovered her a couple of years ago when I watched the documentary, First Position, and I was deeply touched by her story.

The tale of a war-orphan that was rescued and became a ballet dancer. As she says at the beginning of the clip, her life is the stuff of fairy tales.

But hearing her describe her life in her own words you can see that her life was anything but that.

Her vitiligo and her struggles are the badge of honour that makes her special and that makes her beautiful.

They have aided her in becoming the incredible dancer that she is today.

They make her an inspiration to so many young girls and women around the world.

In sharing her story she has decided to wear her differences; her tragedies, challenges and ultimately her triumphs like a badge of honour.

What ‘differences’ have you once struggled to overcome that you can now wear as a badge of honour?

Soul Glow

I’m super excited about this page because it will be dedicated to all the amazing things that we can do to de-stress, aid relaxation, sleep better and so much more.

I’m hoping it will be a place of sanctuary for you.

There will be an abundance of free material all geared towards helping you to operate from a place of calm and serenity – (well, as much as possible).

This page is desired to shine some much needed light on our souls – in other words, on ourselves – so that we can shine all the brighter in the world; be more productive, feel happier, love more openly and ultimately serve the world in a more meaningful way.

If you’re reading this, the chances are you’re a giver.

You probably give up so much of yourself to other people before you take care of yourself.

If you’ve ever felt like you don’t have enough time, or enough energy, or enough money to treat yourself, whatever, then fear not. This page will be just the ticket.

By the way, I think its wonderful that you have a generous and selfless disposition. It’s amazing and I wouldn’t suggest you change.

However its equally important that you don’t neglect yourself and your own needs. It’s essential that you love yourself.

And that’s exactly what Soul Glow will help you do.

I won’t say too much right now. Instead I’ll let it manifest organically before your eyes.

Just know that there will be loads of content for you to watch, read, try out, discover, embrace and share.
