Trust in what’s for you

Happy Monday!

It’s the start of another week, but really the continuation of the journey you’ve been on, and another opportunity to shine. So my wish is that this week is filled with little moments that remind you, just how valuable you are and that nothing is wasted. The joyful or challenging moments are adding to the amazing story you’ll come to share and evidence in your life.


I can say this because it’s been a challenging time recently with the addition of a new baby. In truth, there are days when I wonder if this beautiful gift is the end of my desire to be a fully-fledged entrepreneur. Especially as you then tend to feel older and for some reason consumed with the idea that time is running out.

But what a load of crockery! Have you ever owed a cupboard full of plates that you’re convinced you’ll use one day despite the fact that there are only 4 of you in the house? The feeling; that your running out of time is a lie, just like that cupboard full of plates. This is how our minds deceive us in fixating on the negative.

When faced with these moments, I have to go back to basics: the foundation of God’s word to get my head and spirit straight.. literally. I know that can in itself to be a challenge, but once that block or focus has shifted you realise that we need to trust what God has in store for us, no matter the storms, or confusion that comes our way or how delayed the vision seems. God is not a liar and He has given us so much and for a purpose.

Time is on my side because God is for me and he is the shepherd of time and my life – C Foune

Have a fantastic week x

A heart of gratitude

I love quiet mornings. They are pure indulgence. And this morning I was basking in it. Even my husband noticed.

I always wake up with a worship song on my mind. Today it was: “Looking for a Saviour” by United Pursuit. As I played it, I was just overcome with the goodness of God

It’s so easy to forget the good times and the truly amazing moments. The ‘God moments’. Where nothing makes sense and not because there is confusion. But because stressful situations change to blessings overnight. Long awaited goals, suddenly take momentum.

Reflecting on my professional journey, with this in mind. I realized that though I felt, perhaps I could have achieved more. There was no point looking back with sadness or regret. I would not rewrite a fictitious story in my head.

As I can only look forward with gratitude! That despite, my own confused state of mind at times. Or the years living in my head, never truly fixed on a destination. God still enabled me to succeed.

Reaffirming that with faith, all things are possible

Forget shame and be Courageous

Courage is a big word!

As I encourage you to be more courageous, I’ll share with you something from the best selling book of all times, the bible. Through his word, God has given us his promise that we can be courageous because we will never be put to shame or be disgraced. whether; young, old or because of things lost, we should be confident in marching forward

“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. (Issiah 54:4)

As courage is about being bold and confident. Know that God has got your back in this area and you can fully own the platform as you run your race.

Victory is all in the mindset

I love the story of Daniel in the Lions Den. The faith he held that no harm would come to him. That he would live. I often think, that if I was Daniel in that Den, I’d be freaking out!

There are times, when life feels like we are in a Lions Den of our own, it feels like we are going to be eaten alive by the stress of it, never mind the actual challenge that faces us.

However even in the darkest of moments, I believe its not about the lion but how we handle ourselves in the den

Whatever challenges you face right now, I want to encourage you, and tell you that you can survive it. You can come out alive. And by alive, I mean that no matter the outcome you live to fight another day.

Your strongest weapon is faith. It’s the belief that your situation will not overtake you, it’s the belief things will end in your favour

Faith over fear

Let me put this out there, in encouraging you I am not speaking from a place of I have and you do not. I am not telling you I’ve made it and this is how. I am sharing with you that I get it, I’ve felt it and that the struggle is without a doubt unbelievable real.

My heart is to encourage you to see those struggles differently, to hold it together in the face of uncertainty, to take action and move boldly to, to see that we are all on an individual journey and that even when the image is glossy and rose tinted, we all face challenges and we all have successes and it’s all down to action and perspective.

People look at me and say “you got it all together” someone even once told me “you’re famous now” but that’s perception. My action and perspective got me here. To a place where, I can confidently own my journey, view my challenges as growth and bring a positive mind set to whatever I am doing.

I haven’t made it yet, far from it, there is so much I want to do. My goal is to do colourful and dynamic things that bring positive change to the lives of people. But this is not really about me, it’s about you.

I want you to know that you are capable, that although what you bring to the table may already exist, the truth is, it still’s needed. It’s still relevant. You are relevant and only you can believe that about yourself and what you have to offer despite it all. To have faith that your life can be everything you ever dreamed and more.

getting over

I like to think that we know within ourselves who we are and we know when it’s make or break time and some of us get lots of opportunities which our eyes are not open to because we feel we can’t’ we’re not ready yet, or that’s not for me, what if I fail.

Let me say this, if you don’t try, you can’t succeed and to succeed, you must fail, and failure is not the end.

So I challenge you when you’re next make or break moment comes what are you going to do?
