Girls Just Wanna Have Sun!!!
Nothing like some good old vitamin D to make you feel sexy and new again! Summer has this warmth, this laid back lazy feel to it that makes me want to unwind, drink lots of wine, lay by the pool listen to Catoma… Or the next beach house mix that I’m obsessed with for the week. It reminds me to live a little, which we always should try and do to do more of! Right!
A large part of it is nostalgia. Summers to me are hours spent on the Santa Barbara beaches, young, healthy, inspired and reading great books and day dreaming about all the things life could become. Or maybe it’s those sultry nights amidst the sea of a thousand swaying bodies in Ibiza dancing my little heart out. Whatever it is, there’s so much I love about summer!!
Last week was my 37th birthday and every year around this time I start to ask a lot of questions. What am I doing? Where am I going? Am I on the path intended for me? The good deep stuff!! Birthdays are milestones worth celebrating, but me, I find a strange kind of satisfaction in moving away from the hustle and bustle of life to ponder the implications of another 365 days gone. 365 days over which I have either touched lives and made differences
or I have just gone through the motions of living……
I expect a lot out of myself. And although I have come a long way, it can be daily challenge to feel that I have done enough. I’m always aiming to be the best I can be. It’s pretty clear, I am a fighter, and I don’t know how to quit! It is also clear that I chose the challenges I did to make myself stronger. The older I get and the deeper I dive into the depths of my soul,
the more power I see hidden inside. Every year is a mission to
peel away the layers and get closer to my heart!
We all have this incredible force inside us waiting to be unleashed! It’s right there swirling within. We just have to be bold enough to channel it! Because often we are scared of our own brightness. It is so pure and iridescent that it might pale the world around us, put the spotlight on us!
But life is full of choices. And in each moment we can choose to be our own glorious self. Or we can bow down to the
opinions of society and the expectations of others.
So right now I want to issue an invitation. To exercise your divine right to choose. And to expand. Just for this summer, forget what is expected of you. Instead focus on what you want!
Do you want to feel the sun of your face and be free? Do you want to touch that core of utter confidence in you that made you preen in your little red dress on the beach all those years ago? Do you want to be on top of the world? If the answer is ‘Yes’, don’t wait. You know what to do! Go ahead and remind yourself of your own spark, of the reason you are here!!
I will clap from the side-lines.
