HEY! Thanks for joining me here at L.I.V.E.
I believe that being a woman, and a Mum, in this day and age can be very challenging but also very rewarding. We all need support and encouragement and I believe that the things you find here at L.I.V.E will leave you feeling loved, inspired, victorious and encouraged – as a woman and as a Mum, if you are one! I will be sharing my journey and I am going to be brutally honest, no sugar-coating. The reason I have changed my blog from it’s original vision is because my life has changed and I am in a different season now. And I have also been feeling very strongly about the negative affects social media can have on us as women – the things we put on social media do not always reflect exactly what our life involves. We tend to always post the wonderful moments that tell everyone how perfect our life is and it is very rare that we share our daily struggles.
Now, there is a difference in being real by sharing our struggles in order to help others and just having a whinge lol I want to be able share my struggles and then also share the things that I do that help me get through. I am not saying that I have all the answers and that is why I want this blog to be interactive – I need support from other women too. I am currently going through a pretty tough time in my marriage and have been separated from my husband for over 7 months – I am struggling big time and as a Mum of 4 small children, all under 8, it is all about getting through each day, one minute at a time lol My life is very hectic but as you can see, my hope is in Jesus and that is what gets me through each day.
I am a massive supporter of living a healthy lifestyle, as I have lost 28kgs in the past year when I decided to take better care of the body God has given me; I will be sharing the successes and failures of my weight loss journey including Exercise, the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting. I believe that diet and exercise is a very important part of life and being active and eating wholesome foods should be one of our main priorities. It can be very hard to get started on your own journey so I am happy to help you in any way I can. I found that getting started was the most difficult thing to do but once I was making better choices it became a lot easier and part of my lifestyle. It isn’t about a “quick fix”, it is about a Lifestyle Change.
I believe that the main priority should be spending time alone with God, in prayer and reading the Bible. It is absolutely mind-blowing the amount of strength God has given me in my darkest times. One of my most favourite things to do is journaling because I have a passion for writing – I have done this ever since I was a young girl. I jotted down the best moments of my life and the hardest moments of my life in a special notebook entitled, “Dear Diary…” I encourage my 2 eldest children to use a diary/journal when they are feeling happy, frustrated, upset or sad. I like to write letters to God and also keep a prayer journal. “Go to the throne instead of the phone” I am (slowly lol) learning to go to God instead of calling people for help, or to whinge haha
My vision for this site is that we, as women, can share our experiences (both success and failure) and be part of a non-judgemental and uplifting community – the L.I.V.E. COMMUNITY! So, stay tuned for some awesome content that contains Love. Inspiration. Victory. Encouragement. I pray that these four words will change your life! Be Blessed!
