The Good Life 365

good life 365

This month has very much been a completely fresh start for me. I feel like I've hit the massive red 'reset' button for my life. I won't lie, I'm scared... but it's definitely been a long time coming now. I wrote back in January an outline of my goals for going into this new year, and I think I've realised now that my happiness and self development is an ongoing thing, which will never really be 'ticked' off the list upon completion. Like one of my favourite quotes - 'Happiness is the journey, not the destination'. It's great to have daily goals, short term goals, and hell even long term goals! But the wholesome and healthy state of mind in which I'd like to live my life is an ongoing work in progress. Some days will be better than others, I may take a few steps forward then stumble back again, but that's okay. I'm only human. We all are. I recently read The Book Of Brave by Laura Jane Williams, and her words could not have rung more true to me at this moment in time. "Fucking up isn’t failure for as long as you have values, and you stick to them. If you go off-course, it’s about how you bounce back from that"

motivational book

In my holiday post I touched briefly on a book I read, The Crossroads of Should and Must. "Should" is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. "Must" is the thing we dream of doing, our hearts desire. It made me clearly think about what I do in my life for a career, and what I do for fun. I came to the (maybe obvious) conclusion that my main job is working in tv/film, my blog is a hobby (not something that I make money from, but of course it has it's fun perks) and a third project I have recently undertaken is sort of a mixture of both. Before I talk about this final project I just wanted to touch slightly on blogging for a hobby or as a business. I truly lost myself in a whirlwind of shit content a year or so ago when I tried to monetize my blog and work on paid posts. You guys hated it, I hated it, it just wasn't me! This isn't my job and neither do I want it to be. As soon as I tried to think of it as a job, I was being professional but I also had a rod stuck up my back that completely killed the life and soul of me and what I try to communicate through this little piece of the internet. I want to write here because I enjoy it, and I want others to enjoy this space with me. There is no right or wrong way of doing it, apart from knowing now that if I lose myself, then I lose the soul of this blog and why you guys come and share these life musings with me.

Anyway I have went off piste now but I do hope you understand where I am coming from (miscommunication is my biggest fear and hate, which explains why I tend to talk TOO MUCH) The point of this post is to share with you all my new facebook community, The Good Life 365. It's a wellness project where over the next year (and hopefully beyond) I'll be posting daily doses of inspiration, suggestions, progress and positivity. These will range from body image and health, to skin and beauty, to career, recipes, general well being, and everything in between.

My updates will focus on a healthy body and a healthy mind - and ultimately the best advice anyone has ever given me, to be kinder to ourselves. The super talented Ella Masters created the branding for me, and I couldn't be happier with how my logos turned out! That girl got skillz ^_^ Overall, it is really scary to think how I can come up with something decent enough to share every single day for the next year!? And a part of me thinks I'm crazy for taking on yet another task when I'm trying to work on my stress levels and not feeling too overwhelmed. But I'm just taking it a day at a time, and to be honest it has been quite a positive commitment for me to sit every day, even just for 10 minutes, and create some positive content to put out there. It has been helping me so much on my journey, and I hope I manage to help others too.

I started this project off the back of my new Forever Living business. You'll have heard me mention them a few times in the last year, after completing their C9 cleanse twice, continuing on with their aloe vera and shakes to help move towards my goal weight, and introducing their completely natural and cruelty free makeup and skincare into my day to day routine. You're probably reading this thinking oh YAWN the post has taken a turn for the worst, network marketing blah blah blah, just another Arbonne/Avon/Younique or whatever the hell people are trying to flog on Facebook these days. I am very sceptical about most things in this day and age. But Forever products have been improving my quality of life for a year now, which is why I decided to become an independent distributor. I am loyal to the brand because their products have done so much for me! So I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce my new venture to you guys. I've had some really happy clients so far, and hope in time I can find people with a work ethic similar to myself to join my team. I actually met my manager through working in tv and film, as she was a makeup artist for a lot of big celebrities. She now works with Forever full time, and having her train me has been so much fun. It doesn't feel like work at all. "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life"

clean 9 cleanse

To celebrate the launch of my Good Life 365, I want to give away one of our best selling products - the C9 cleanse. It's a 9 day cleanse which gently rids your body of harmful chemicals and built up waste matter. Safely removing these toxins ultimately results in weight loss and inch loss. The body does detox itself, but the C9 helps it do so more efficiently. I'm on my third cleanse now, the healthiest and lightest I've ever felt in my entire adult life, and only 6lbs away from my goal weight now. It isn't a fad or a quick fix - it's the spring board many of us need into creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. No more silly diets or dangerous yo-yo methods, I treat my body right and this lifestyle change is a long lasting one for me, and every person I have coached through the cleanse so far. I've got some client progress photos over on the 365 page (or I can send you them along with some more info if you'd like!) They've all continued on with drinking the aloe vera every day, and I was so chuffed to get a text from Sally today to say her weight loss has continued and she's now 9lbs down. Feeling healthy and comfortable in our own skin is something a lot of us struggle with, and I can't even tell you how long I have struggled personally. Our bodies are fantastic, complex machines. We need to be good to them!

I'm giving away a cleanse to one lucky reader. It's worth £108.95, so I hope this can be the perfect kick start to a healthy new lifestyle for someone who might not have been able to afford it at this moment in time otherwise. You will receive full support and coaching from me throughout the programme. I'm currently on day 8, so I'll be sure to post my results on instagram/twitter later in the week. If you have any questions about Forever, their products, or about joining my team then just drop me a message. I know it's not for everyone, but this C9 has worked really well for me and millions of others so far. Even if you don't enter the competition, be sure to pop over to my 365 page and say hello :)

  1. Missus, you are such an inspiration and such amazing support through the c9 cleanse. I for one am so so glad that I commented on your results picture on instagram and decided to just go for it.

    I've been stuck in a rut with weight and how i've been feeling about my body and physically for a long time, around 18 months, and now i've on day 5 of the c9 and have never felt better...apart from the ache in my bum and legs right now which has impeded my ability to sit comfortably, damn you leg day!!!

    You're just a little bundle of inspiration and joy and i'm so glad to have met you through blogging all those years ago! In reality i've known you about 3 or 4 years but it feels longer!! LOL.

    Good luck with your project, i'm loving it on Facebook and good luck with the rest of your third cleanse!

    Mwah!

  2. Oh this is so exciting! I've been looking for a cleanse of some sort for at least a year (moving from the US to Ireland took a toll on me physically which has led to some emotional issues as well... can't resist a chipper). It's hard to figure out with companies like this what is real and what is just a pyramid scheme, so even if I don't win I'm excited to learn about your journey with it in real-time! Thank you!

I completely agree that happiness is a lifetime thing and not something you can tick off a list, it's something that I am working on too, a little step at a time. The cleanse sounds amazing as well and a good stick start to someones healthy goals. Going to check out those two books you mentioned as well x
