Since You’ve Been Gone

I CAN BREATHE FOR THE FIRST TIME. I’M SO MOVING ON YEAH YEAH. THANKS TO YOU. NOW I GET, WHAT I WANT.

Well actually… this post is more about me and where I’ve been lately… since I’ve been gone. Have you noticed? As cliche as it is, it has a big fat break up sticker plastered all over it  – just probably not the break up you’re envisaging, because it’s a break up for one.

I would love to be able to share with all you gorgeous people that my lack of posting and presence has been because I’ve been off doing more, seeing more and being more. Living the Goal Diggers NZ mantra, running the world and living in complete balance and bliss. Unfortunately my motivated, soul searching babes and dudes, sadly it has been the polar opposite. My lack of presence has not just been in the social media world but also the real world. I haven’t felt like myself in months and there is no guessing, I know exactly why. I’ll let you in on a little secret…

For the past three months I have  returned back to full-time teaching.  A maternity position that I agreed to at the end of last year – before GDNZ was buzzing, before I fully believed in myself, before I knew I could support myself through coaching. In the beginning I was pumped – the class itself was awesome, I had taught the majority of the children a couple of years before. I knew them, they knew me. It was going to be a breeze.

Two weeks in and I could feel every inch of my body fighting it – nothing was aligning, I was feeling depleted, I was struggling to find time for Goal Diggers NZ my passion project, my happy place. I was feeling like a fraud! Promoting this message of live your life the way you want to live it, dream big, hustle hard – the only thing I was hustling was money and a whole lot of sickness. Finishing this term with a new world record of sick days with a total of: 7.5. I’ve been sick three times this term, three f’n times!! Currently recovering from tonsillitis. If that’s not a sign from my soul for me to sort my shit out then I don’t know what is. However ladies and gents I must stress that I have loved the teaching itself, I’ve had an incredible term with an incredible bunch of students and amazing, supportive and generous colleagues. Unfortunately when you’re doing something that just doesn’t fill your heart with sunshine, glitter and happiness your soul suffers resulting in a number of symptoms including feeling fatigued, uninspired and unfulfilled.

BUT I knew it was only short-term. There was always going to be an end. A break-up. The long awaited break up is finally oh so close, I can smell it. It smells like a whole lot of inspiration, motivation and hustle.

So here I am, wiser, stronger, more driven, determined, feeling fresh and SO BLOODY EXCITED to have time for GDNZ again. My heart is extremely happy!! I’m back to not being able to sleep from all the excitement, my brain currently has no off switch and it’s producing GDNZ ideas like Niagara Falls. FOR YOU this means, fresh new content, a whole week of GDNZ 1st birthday celebrations, a strong social media presence with a focus on interacting with you all over on snapchat (see you there @goaldiggersnz), free coaching resources, new and improved coaching packages, a chance to buy GDNZ Clothing that you may have seen over on insta AND saving the best for last – a whole week’s worth of Featured Goal Diggers GDNZ EDITION! Yep, I’m going to be sharing with you 5 of my ever inspiring babes that I’ve been coaching! They’ll be sharing their goals they’ve set with me, their achievements and all their tips for living a kick-ass fulfilling life!!

My message to you! Life is way to short to be feeling uninspired, unfulfilled and damn straight unhappy. Mine had an end date. Make sure yours does too!! Break up with your job if it’s something you dread. Break up with your unhealthy habits if they’re weighing you down. Break up with your friend if they don’t have your back. Break up with anything that has little or no benefit to the quality of your life.

It’s your life, your choices – choose fulfilment, choose happiness, choose passion.

  1. Love it!!! Can’t wait to see what is to come for GDNZ following your little detour in life!!! The road can be winding, but the destination often worth the extra time those winding roads can take, as long as you’re taking in the view and learning as you drive! xx

  2. So amazing to see you back. I have just resigned from years of working as a corporate professional to return home to just South of Queenstown to start up a wee tourism business that I have always dreamed of doing. It’s so hard doing it on my own and replacing security with uncertainty but I’m doing it anyway and it’s good to know the doubts and down days I have are normal and it’s all about how you just keep on going. Keep it up girl!!! X
