“No worries” is a phrase that I’ve picked up here in Hawaii and say more times a day than I can count. .
It’s sort of become my internal mantra—and my life has been a little more problem free since I started reminding myself of that. #hakunamatata .
The Universe always has a plan. Whether that plan is the same as ours doesn’t matter—what will be will be and we will persevere. .
What seems like a problem today will be a blip on the radar one day. .
You will overcome, because #theuniversehasyourback

Sorry to take over your screen with my ugly mug but there are an awful lot of new followers so I decided to do a quick post to say hi 👋 here are a few random facts about me 🙈
I'm a 22 year old single/co-parent to my wild child, Evie.
We live just outside of Newcastle. Slap bang in the middle of the beach and city centre!
I love sharing our everyday adventures with our lovely insta-family and that's part of the reason I've decided to start a blog.
When Evie is at her dad's, my stories are normally filled with photos of wine, Netflix and pizza 🍕
My bags are normally bigger and my hairs always this messy but no, my brows aren't normally this bad 🙈
Coffee is life ☕ I cannot start the morning without one!
I'm so tight with money and so I love a good bargain. Definitely like my dad for that 😂
There's magic in the garden 🌿 what's you fav plant? Still looking for interior plants that can ignore the fact that I'm a bad plant mom - this succulent is thriving not thanks to me
Magia en el jardín 🌿 cual es tu planta favorita? Sigo buscando plantas de interior que sobrevivan a mis malos cuidados, como esta suculenta hermosa que ha logrado prosperar solita
“We can grow as much from our negative experiences as we can from our positive ones.”
The reality of life is that bad things will happen, that’s beyond our control.
The only thing we can control is what we take from the experience and how we move on from it.
Easier said that done, right?
In fact, just the mere suggestion that things could be that simple is frustrating, to say the least.
But as painful as any experience might be, how you react to it, will define how you get to live.
Yes life is a bumpy and uncertain road, but what I know for sure is that when I take each experience to embrace the ‘bad’, just as I do the ‘good’, I rise and come out even stronger.
Instead of good or bad moments, these little bumps in life become just moments.
“Podemos crecer con nuestras experiencias negativas tanto como con nuestras positivas.”
La realidad de la vida es que sucederán cosas malas, eso está más allá de nuestro control.
Lo único que podemos controlar es lo que tomamos de la experiencia y cómo pasamos de ella.
Más fácil dicho que hecho, ¿verdad?
De hecho, solo la mera sugerencia de que las cosas podrían ser tan simples es frustrante, por decir lo menos.
Pero a pesar de lo dolorosa que pueda ser cualquier experiencia, la forma en que reacciones a ella definirá cómo vives.
Sí, la vida es un camino difícil e incierto, pero lo que sé con certeza es que cuando tomo cada experiencia para abrazar lo "malo", así como hago lo "bueno", me levanto y salgo aún más fuerte.
En lugar de buenos o malos momentos, estos pequeños retos en la vida se convierten en solo momentos.
Artists and entertainers are becoming the philosophers of our generation. And j. Is no exception to that rule. 💗
We see that the more revealing the industry gets about the wrong-doings of powerful people, there are diamonds in the rough who go down a different path to tell us that the industry is not the answer. These entertainers have been enlightened and seek to gain something more out of life, and try to help everyone around them realize what life is all about!💎
In my opinion, j.cole is just that. There is no denying that j. Is an amazing artist, but I feel that he is also a great philosopher. He’s been dropping knowledge on all of us for years and years and hopefully more years to come! 🤞🏽
Do you agree with my theory? 🧐
But do you know what you want? I thought I did when I'd say: I want to be happy. I was happy some of the time, but I still wasn't feeling fulfilled or purposeful or lit up. *cue Desire Map* ⠀
I found my core desired feelings.⠀
So now I feel exactly how I want every day - mostly. And when the sh*t hits the fan in my life I use my core desired feelings as a mantra. A prayer. A wish. ⠀
I ask. Believe. Then receive. Are you ready?⠀

💸Before we came away I found a 500 forint note (Huf aka hufflepuffs) and thought we will probably be balling, then I remembered it was £1.40. Thankfully beer here is only £1 so who’s balling now?! 😬🤷🏽♀️ .
Good Morning! Happy Tuesday! I was tagged by one of my closest friends @bodieandco to introduce myself, and share 5 random facts about it. Most of you already know - My name is Mikaela!
Ready for some random facts?
1. I never used to be able to have my food touching on a plate. Major OCD! What I’ve learned is this was a form of control when I felt so out of control in my life. Heres to letting food mix on my plate again (or most things on my plate)! 🥗
2. I come from a very large family. We can take up an entire restaurant when we are all together. 20 first cousins and hundreds of second cousins makes for so many great memories! ✨
3. I currently found out that wearing certain crystals in your bra can help with different things - I need to feel more grounded, so I wear Red Jasper in my bra — funny fact … I forget I am wearing them and when I change the crystals go everywhere! (TMI? Whatever … you’re fine!) 🙄
4. I used to figure skate from the age of 3 until I was 17. I broke the meeting place from my low back and tailbone and called it quits! People would laugh saying “oh you do those fun little jumps” … little and jumps don’t go in the same sentence in a figure skaters mind. You are literally jumping and praying to God on the way down that you don’t catch someone else edge and land flat on your ass. Years later I got back on the ice and taught little kids how to skate. This is something I plan on doing again. ⛸
5. I can’t swim. I mean - I can doggy paddle, but actually swim - I would be screwed if I was stranded in a body of water for a long time. I would just bob around like a fishing bobble! (Speaking of fishing … I love to fish but once I catch a fish - I have no idea what to do with it. I feel so bad for the anxiety that I just put that fish through. 🏊🏼♀️
Alright boss babes - you’re up! A few are small businesses I support and love, and strong ass women who I look up to! @sunnylenarduzzi@kryystyyn@papercliplaw@recoverygangster@thejuiceryco@alyssacdawson@thefutureiscanadian
My dream scenario right now:
Work calls and says... “Hey Chelsea, don’t come in, we have a snow day! Don’t venture out into the cold, and enjoy your day!”
And then I climb back in to my made bed and beat Justin in scrabble and he makes me lots of food and we drink wine and watch movies all day and laugh and laugh. .
But instead I have on two coats and one glove because I lost the matching one. And there is no snow day and I lied to my Uber driver and told him I was in the middle of something very important so he would stop talking to me. But I’m not. I’m just typing this and day dreaming.

Roses from my boo blooming beautifully 😍🌹 #mindfulmoment
How will you stop and smell the roses today?
I've been struggling a bit recently. Without being all like 😫😭 a messy vulnerable mess...it does explain why I've been a little quiet on all realms: real life, IG & FB. I'm just trying (trying the key word here!) to take a little stock and figure out where to go from here. The question I need to ask myself is, how am I going to stop this from happening time and time again. A cup of tea, a blank notepad, pens and flowers might help...any more tips then they'd be more than welcome 💕
“What is really missing in some profound way is us - our willingness or ability to show up fully in our lives and live them as if they really mattered, in the only moment we ever get, which is this one.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Suddenly it has become completely clear that, in order to be the best role model I can be, I have to finally stop making excuses and allowing my choices to be dictated by fear. It is time for me to take full responsibility for how I spend my time and my life, how I present myself to the world around me, and how I advocate for myself. The magnitude of all of this has left me feeling a bit insecure, out of place, and wavering with self-doubt and anxiety over the last several days I have decided to dedicate the next 60 days, and the first chapter of this journey, to 60 adventures in practicing mindfulness, gratitude, and compassion. The experiences over the next 60 days are all about accessing vulnerability, noticing beauty in the world around me, embracing tears and belly laughs, and fully inhabiting life.
... baš je takav neki dan.
