Today I want to share with you a few things about myself that you might not know about me so YOU can get to know ME better.
I met my boyfriend in a video game. Say what?! Oh yes I did. I took online dating to a whole other level! There is a game called World of Warcraft and if you are into gaming at all you will know exactly what I mean. It's a huge online multi-player game. It was in this game as fate would have it that I met Matt, we became friends online and started to connect on a more personal level. I was going through a rough time with my long distance relationship at the time, I was hurt, I was feeling alone and I didn't know what to do about it all. Slowly I began to realise that my relationship really wasn't working and it wasn't healthy for me. So long story short, as the universe would have it Matt and I ended up together, we travelled around the USA for 6 weeks, I moved to Bristol and the rest is history!
I am addicted to Nutella. That sugary, chocolatey goodness is an addiction. I rarely ever have it in the house just because I will clean out the whole jar. It's a problem ;)
I used to get so nervous about speaking in front of or even just on the phone to someone I didn't know. I am not a natural speaker and I never have been. I used to get cold sweats and shake when I knew I had to speak in front of a small group or call back a customer at work. But I teach yoga right? Yes I know it doesn't make sense. All I can say is that yoga has helped me face my fears, teaching yoga comes naturally to me. Yoga helped me find my shine.
Sometimes I find meditation difficult. My mind races with everything I need to get done in my new yoga adventure, working for yourself is amazing but at the same time... you have no one to rely on but yourself. So when I find myself trying to meditate and find it difficult to let go of my day. It takes time for me to settle into my space. So don't worry if it takes you time to get into a meditation routine, being still and stilling the mind can be challenging ~ trust me, I am with you on this one!
My favourite YouTuber is Fleur DeForce. This is a guilty pleasure of mine and the only YouTuber I feel I must watch every single video she puts up is Fleur DeForce. She has a realness about her that is humbling, I feel like I can relate and connect to her even if she is just on my computer screen.
I have titanium plates in my right arm. When I was 15 I fell off my horse Midnight. It was bad, I had a compound fracture to my right arm, this means that one of the bones came out of the skin. I don't blame anyone for this, it was just a total freak accident. In order to repair my arm they put in two titanium plates and several screws, yep they are still in there and nope I do not beep when I go through security at the airport!
I never knew what I wanted to do with my life when I was younger. And you know what? That's okay. I truly believe that everyone has a path to follow, it's just about reading the signs for the universe. It will come to you when you are ready.
I am MESSY! So messy. I am sure it drives Matt nuts as he is always picking up after me. The strange thing is that I love a tidy house, so I need to contain my messiness! I just have a habit of spreading everything out, especially clothes, all over the floor.
I used to feel disgusted with my own body. It's been a long road travelled to learn how to appreciate my body and love it for all that it is. I still have my dark days but they are becoming few and far between. I did this my implementing some positive changes into my life, how I perceive my body, the way that I eat and how I approach exercise. Letting go of all the rules and just loving life, being present and feeling FREE.
I love to sing. In the shower, in the car, humming along while I am writing. Yep, I am THAT girl. I'm not a bad singer however I am not the best singer but you know what? I just don't care because it makes me feel GOOD!
Tell me one thing that most people probably don't know about you in the comments :)
