What Message Do You Think Every Woman Should Hear?
With Vicky from The Flourishing Pantry
Hello! My name is Vicky and I’m a blogger, coach and retreat host helping busy entrepreneurs find healthier ways to eat and live.
Oh wow that’s a big one. I feel like I’m constantly getting great advice lately. So many things really stick with me since starting my own business because I’m so aware of my own strengths and weaknesses when it’s just me on the journey with no colleagues to hide behind.
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
My constant drive to be productive. My boyfriend doesn’t understand me at all – he’ll happily sit in front of the TV for hours but I get twitchy! I’m always looking for ways to learn new things, add skills, create content and get better. It does mean I’m not great at switching off sometimes… but I’m alright with that while I’m doing what I love.
A future where I can work on my own terms. Where I can provide for my family, be flexible to enjoy travel and time with loved ones and do work where I can have a true impact.
On a daily basis I try to mediate and keep a journal to grow and stay in touch with how I’m feeling and how I want to move forward.
I’ve never really written a bucket list… I’ve been very lucky to do many amazing things in my life already. I did a lot of international travel in my past career which enabled me to see a lot of amazing places, I’ve run two marathons, changed career and lived in another country! I think if you want to do something, start putting into place a plan to get there – don’t just leave it on a list as a wish.
My friends and family, meaningful conversations, learning, reading and the power of the written word. And health – looking after my own as well as spreading as much good information as I can about how to improve it.
