Personal Branding is just as important as Professional Branding …. so put your best foot forward 🦿

To be the best you need to know you’re the best, otherwise you’re just thinking!

Every superhero knows that if you don’t KNOW than you can’t GO …..

Mental preparation is far more important than the actual physical activity 🤯

Everyday I am committed to pushing myself beyond my established limits of yesterday …. despite barely sleeping and eating, I accomplish alot and I use instant coffee (which does very little) to keep me alert.  On Saturday, I had 2 large flat whites which is 4 espresso shots and I hit a brick wall on Sunday.  Thus, today I’m taking the sensible approach of eating food and drinking instant coffee but my body is craving an espresso because itis a drug and I am in withdrawal and tired. Thus, I am mentally pushing myself to keep going because saving the world is a full time job and I have no excuses!

When my sons’ father had a heart attack 5 years ago my 13 year old fell apart and I told him to pull his shit together and fall apart afterwards.

It’s OK to be emotional and it’s OK to cry …. it’s better out than in 😰

Two and a half weeks after my brother’s accident, this is me invoking my right to fall apart.

Normally I’m the one who bears the load alone ……

Shit happens and when it does, make sure you have people standing in the way so they get hit instead of you 🤣😂

But I have to admit that it’s easier to bear the brunt of a load when it’s distributed evenly …. That’s what friends are for!!

How do you know what friendship is?

Broken smiles hide hidden treasures so do look

I don’t know…. go out discover that for yourself!

Weddings, accidents, emergencies, disasters and funerals should not be the only reason to connect! Do it just because 🥰

Being highly skilled at stuff is meaningless if the people you love don’t know you love them.

It took my brother Atene’s accident to bring us together and for me to communicate with my family …… I’ve spent the past 2 weeks doing way I should’ve always done – taken time for people I love 😍

Age is a poor indication of maturity ….

I have yet to discover what it means to be an adult …. if it means getting old, I’m forever young 😊

From the age of 7, I was left at home and learnt to survive …. for many years I felt that I’d been abandoned.  Last week i realised,  my parents were teaching me how to look after myself because they had confidence in me that I’d be OK. I realise now that I didn’t survive, I have lived 🤩

CoVID19 is a tangible threat that forced humanity together in isolation.

Fear an intangible concept looks to divide and conquer …. CoVID19 a tangible threat, decimated 400,000 lives and forced people physically apart but bonded us together. How is it that an intangible thought can wreak such havoc and destroy that?

Thought forms have caused more devastation and unnecessary loss of life, livelihoods, infrastructure, environmental damage and fear than any human pandemic. Have we learnt nothing in the past 2 months?

“Not good enough, even now as I sing there’s a little voice inside my head that says, I’m not good enough”!

Acceptance of Kaukau

My youngest son carves it up on the field and the court and yet, I’m not good enough. My eldest son he’s a mess because he’s only ever heard me say, You’re not good enough”

I think I wrote that song in 2015, probably at the height of my insanity. I sing it now with sadness for the mess I created, that I have surrendered too and accepted. Take the time to accept the unacceptable because that’s where you’ll find your soul, where it always was, complete and unravaged by time or judgement.
