Unspoken Conversations are the topics that are often swept under the carpet, whispered amongst the closest of friends and bitched about by many. I want to create awareness about difficult things that people face in life; grief, mental health, money, illnesses, family troubles, relationship difficulties and putting yourself first. I want to tell the truth about things that really matter.

Life has Taught Me

Life has taught me;

-to create your own opportunities by thinking big and and not being afraid to voice your ideas and follow through with your actions.

-To be truly happy you have to come to an understanding with yourself that you matter and your opinions, values and feelings should be heard.

-Stopping and appreciating your natural environment does wonders for your health.

-Your health is precious and must always be a priority in your life.

-It's okay not to be happy all of the timeEvents and circumstances that are out of your control are bound to happen throughout your life but they will make you a stronger and better person and you will grow to trust your ability to cope in the face of turmoil.

-Some things just plain suck.

-The depth and genuiness of your relationships is what adds value to your life.

-Be kind and open minded to other people's differences.

-There is great power in the breath

-A job is just a jobIf you're not happy then leave.

-At first love doesn't take effort but over time the quality of your relationship requires the commitment of two people communicating, growing and comprising to make each other happy.

-Life's too short to hold grudges.

-Regret is a wasted emotion.

-Contributing to something bigger then your own existence is rewarding.

-Step outside of your comfort zone.

-Set goals and work hard to achieve them.

-It's okay to say no.

-Have fun and try not to take life too seriously.

-Be frugal with your moneyyou can always earn more.

-Use your energy on the things that make you happy.

-Make time for yourself.

-Busy schedules are overrated.

-Try not to compare yourselves to otherseveryone is on their own journey.

-Be honest.

-Stand Up for yourself and what you believe in.

-If you're not happy then do something about it.

-Be kind to yourself.

-If you're unhappy with your weight; change your lifestyle.

-Be patientyou can't have everything at once.

-Create opportunities.

-Never settle for anything less then you deserve.

-Live within your means.

-Don't over commit.

-Let people know of your gratitude.

-Stay in touch with your friends.

- Show appreciation towards people who help you on your journey.

-Love yourself.

-If you really want somethingmake it happen.

-Don't take parenthood for granted.

-There's always someone worse off then you.

-Don't bitch.

-Fight for the things you love.

-Do something you love.

-Sometimes there's nothing you can say or do to make someone feel better; sometimes they just need to know that you are there and you won't think any differently of them.

My experience with depression,  while difficult and terrifying,  really has changed my outlook and appreciation for life.

We really do only live once so it's important that we value ourselves,  those around us and our health and that we try not to become bogged down in the petty little unimportant nonsense of life so that we can use our energy to live life according to our values and grab life by the balls!

What has life taught you?

Look after yourself and those around you,

I love this!

Life has taught me to enjoy the little things, indulge in simplicity, that there is a lesson in every mistake and that I am greater than I or anyone perceives me to be.
