Hello, and welcome to August! Do you know how many days we are away from Christmas!?… Ha ha! I’m only joking. But where has the year gone!? Can you believe that You Own It has been around for eight months now and we are growing each and every day! I cannot wait to see where we will be this time next year in terms of our impact.

So the theme for this month is #AugustBust and we will be demystifying some of those health myths that are out there, I’m well excited about this. For those that have joined the our newsletter, I will also be sharing some self-care tips about how to be your own best friend! You can join our mailing list by downloading our 10 Super Simple Self Care Secrets, so if you’ve not done already please make sure you do! Those who are part of our mailing list will also get exclusive access to our ‘You Own It Health & Wellness Group.’ This group is going to be the hub for our community where we can share our own challenges! I will also be going live in this group every Wednesday evening at 8 PM so you don’t want to miss out on that!

I’m also turning the big 3 0! 30! So I will be blogging about how I feel regarding this and the challenges, both positive and negative, I face. I’m nervous and excited at the same time, but I also feel daft as I know that 30 is only a number. It’s the end of a lot of things but the beginning of so many positive things!

One challenge that I have faced with turning this big number, is whether to have a birthday bash or not? A few people that I know have gone all out when turning 30 but for some reason I want to keep things low key! I’ve practiced a lot of Self Care recently and although I love the people that I know, it’s been stressing me out to even think about inviting people to celebrate with me! Ha. I think it’s because I’m finally accepting the ‘authentic me’ as in the real me. Since the beginning of the year, my world has been all over the place! I’ve experienced real lows and positive highs in small spaces of time. It’s through the positives and negatives you find out who is really by your side and ready to support you no matter what! Even if they agree with you or not! Support and being ‘real’ is one of the most important things you can offer somebody you love. It’s also very natural to offer it to the people you care most about. And this is why I’m not throwing a party. I’m meeting up with some key people in my life, individually, and spending some quality time with them. I love these people. You know who you are. And I’m so grateful to have you in my life!

I’ve been blessed to be put on this earth for nearly 30 years. I’m grateful for all the life experiences I have faced so far as they’ve moulded me! Am I scared? Of course! Am I excited? Of course! But I’ve just got to go with the flow and control what I can and letting go of the things I can’t!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog.

Until next time,
