Lessons from my mum

I don’t want any ‘awwwwwwsss”’ or ‘oooooohhhhhhssss’ from this

But today is the first time I’ve really had to worry about Mother’s Day in a while

You see, my mum passed away back in 2002 when I was 12

But today?

I’ve got an amazing wife who’s an amazing mum to my beautiful daughter

^^^ I’ve also got an amazing nan and mother-in-law 🙂

But my point today is this:

I truly believe that if you look closely enough and give it enough time

You can see a ‘positive’ in everything

And before you say what’s the positive in being made redundant or loved ones dying

I just want to say that I used to think that, too

Until I realised that nothing is bad unless you think it’s bad

You see, although my mum passing away when I was 12 seems all doom and gloom

And – don’t get me wrong – I was and still am – devastated

But it actually made me a more grateful person

I realised just how hard my dad was working to provide for the family (as I grew older)

It made me ‘grow up’ and help out with things like cooking and cleaning

^^^ I’ll never forget getting the pasta and meatballs ready for 5pm

You see, when you give so-called ‘bad things’ time to ‘digest’

It’s never as bad as you made it out to be

With every bad, is an opportunity…

Now, I’m not going to pretend it’s easy

Because it’s clearly not

But when you just nurse, rehearse and curse a ‘bad’ situation

Are you just wasting energy on something you can’t change?

Energy that could go into YOU, your kids, family and loved ones?

So, next time you put on a pound on the scales….

Wait 3 days or so

Evaluate what happened over the last week

Did you do your exercise?

Stick to your nutrition plan?

Learn, adapt, grow and harvest the good

See it as a reminder of what you need to do

And after 3 days of evaluation…

then – and only then – give yourself permission to nurse and curse yourself 😉

Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

PS. Last week, I received countless messages from members who trust me and invest in me saying how happy they are with their results and mindset so far on their journey.

Yet, yesterday, someone who has never invested in me said my blogs ‘were boring’ and ‘you are awkward on camera’

And you know what?

For the first time in a while, it didn’t even bother me 🙂 and inspired me to create something new for members on my Fat Loss Mastery and 12-week body transformation programmes
