It's so cool to be kind. Think about it. You absolutely never ever forget people that show you #kindness ... sometimes for no other reason than that's just who they are. Kind, compassionate, emotionally intelligent, friendly and genuine souls who recognise when you need a piece of their heart instead of a piece of their mind. Yep, #KIND is absolutely the coolest thing you can be ⚡ #superpower #seethinkdo #mindfulmuralsproject #coolschool #muralcommission #thisismyhappyplace

This last space for the girls at NPS is a timely reminder to try and #growthroughwhatyougothrough Things are not always ideal (don't we know it! ), and sometimes the best thing you can do is look for the lesson. Find out what you're made of. Don't miss the opportunity to grow by focusing on the negatives. Things change all the time, and recognising that fact can make #transformation a little easier... and sometimes even beautiful 🦋 #yougrowgirl #embracechange #seethinkdo #mindfulmuralsproject #coolschool #detnsw #ladieswhopaint #anotherMHPmural #thisismyhappyplace
Everyone is seeing butterflies! Perhaps there is something in that? Perhaps by retreating from the world into our inner being, cocooning the current version of who we are (or have been ) in deeper meditation and reflection, we will be ready at some point to emerge more enlightened and free? Perhaps this #newnormal is a chance to #transform into an entirely new way of being? Or maybe the butterfly 'with its magnificent and yet short life, reminds us to enjoy the here and now.' 💛 #wip #lightandlove #seethinkdo #mindfulmuralsproject #thisismyhappyplace
Being the #nicekid is #wickedcool , eh. In 10 (20...30...40.. ) years from now you and your classmates will look back and reflect on #thegoodolddays Oh, the stories!! I can just imagine...

Although it probably isn’t at the top of your news feed - today is World Sleep Day! Did you know that the amount and quality of your sleep directly correlates to your health? Unfortunately, when we are running on little sleep, life does not stop for us. Being able to manage your day while you are awake is just as important as working to find solutions for better sleep - often one can help the other. During this current health pandemic, it is especially important to get the sleep you need so you can remain healthy. That’s why I published my visual guide, Wide Awake. While some of the visual tools are meant to maximize your waking hours and help you plan, others focus on identifying and minimizing barriers to getting better sleep. Try to focus on activities that: - Replace worries of uncertainty with actions you can control - Nourish physical, mental and emotional health needs - Lower stress levels - Flip negative thoughts to positive ones - Capture thoughts that are taking up brain space You can also take the sleep archetype quiz and purchase my book through links in bio. If you are interested in more sleep resources also visit the World Sleep Society website (WorldSleepSociety.org )
Self Talk and Mindfulness. The #dynamicduo of #positivementalhealth ! 🤜🤛 The way we speak to ourselves and others, the language we choose, the things we notice, consider and appreciate are all key ingredients to our day to day feelings. Affecting this explicitly and passively in the school environment is the aim of the #mindfulmuralsproject A daily injection of #goodvibes for the students and staff is our small contribution to making school their happy place. Because life isn't all roses and rainbows... but if you learn to look for them, you'll see them more and more 🌈🌹💛 #teachyourchildrenwell #seethinkdo #mindfulormindfull #muralcommission #thisismyhappyplace
Mindset is everything. It's true! No matter how capable you are at what you do, if your confidence waivers, anything can seem a challenge - even things you normally do with your eyes closed (so to speak ). Even though painting and spreading messages of positivity and well-being is my #maingame I'm not afraid to admit the impact #anxiety and doubt plays sometimes in the whole process. I know I can do anything (no tickets on myself, I'm well trained and technically proficient ) but despite that somehow I stumble at the starting blocks on occasion and wonder if I'm #goodenough . This is surprisingly common in many fields and I guess the lesson is #justtry Either way, you learn something about you.... hopefully that your fears were unfounded and that you just needed to #trusttheprocess The #powerofpositive thinking is a game changer though, right? ☀️ #notetoself #realtalk #seethinkdo #mindfulmuralsproject #coolschool #mhpmuralloading #thisismyhappyplace

Bee Kind 🐝 It's a message worth getting across at every opportunity, at any age. This interactive #mhpmural contains LETTERS ready to be converted into focus words or phrases with a stick of chalk. They are designed as a #learningtool to trigger conversation about ideas and concepts being taught in the classroom. I wonder what the next message will bee....? #thepowerofwords #seethinkdo #coolschool #detnsw #mindfulmuralsproject #anotherMHPmural #thisismyhappyplace
Only fitting that my most recent #teatag had this saying —> Grace is kindness, compassion and caring. Why? You ask. Because each year I choose a word or phrase to intentionally focus on. This year my word is GRACE. Which stands as a reminder to give myself grace (as I whisper to myself “I am not perfect and will make mistakes and that is okay” ) It is also a reminder to extend grace to others because being kind to the unkind is SO hard, but everyone needs it. Do you have a word that you intend to focus on?
Did you know today is National Handwriting Day?! ✨ Until I started illustrating live graphic recording, I underestimated the value and creativity of handwriting. Now, I would say probably every day I am handwriting something - whether for work or personal. It interesting to think back to my different styles of handwriting. It can change on the same day depending on the purpose and tool I am using. I am super choosy on what I write with too. My tools vary - sometimes a pen, pencil, sketchnote marker, a @wacom stylus or my favorite @neulandcom markers. ✨ How often do you use your handwriting? Do you have different styles?
Let’s let everyone decide for themselves what the “biggest day of their life” is. . . Thank you to everyone who showed love and support and congratulated me on the big day. People are always telling me that big dreams are unrealistic but I’m curious to hear what they have to say now that my dreams are reality? So proud of the first of many events by @aion_wellness that will lead others to find their light 🙏🏼 . . Special thank you to @kaitiewire for coming through hard and being the best coordinator, photographer, and asst director ever on a moments notice 😂😂😂 you’re my safe place 💛 . . #fulllaunch #thebigday #justthebeginning #namastebitches #seethinkdo #momentum #forwardmotion #keepdreaming #dayone #growth #meditation #getzen #findingpurpose #onthepath #alignment #spiritualwellness #innervention #holistichealth #newyearsrevolution
Most of my closest friends knew I will put aside 10% of my annual income for my own self development yearly. You probably won't know I also put 10% of my time for self development. Just an example, I bought an air ticket & pay myself to learn from a giant big firm know as Lincoln Financial Group about writing business plan as a fin consultant. I wonder even till these days does people do what I did as an ? With changing environment & changing mindset, I'm revamping my own business plan. Seriously, how many people write their own business plan as entrepreneur. If you're contended with your current situation and results, then my advice is not to waste time writing one. Just photocopy what you did and maybe change the year from 2018 to 2019 instead. #passion #vison #values #objectives #keyresults #smartgoal #goalset #longtermplan #mission #commitment #inspirarion #motivation #dailygoal #playtowin #businessplan #planning #seethinkdo #entrepreneurship 1.
