Conquering Biggest, Yet most beautiful fear – Child birth

Ready to face my most biggest, yet beautiful fear.

“To find heaven on Earth is to live your life at the same frequency as your being – pure love and joy.”

—Rhonda Byrne

My mind will be my biggest test. Body just do the rest.

Exciting is an understatement.

Every minute of every day is an unexpected joyride. A smooth yet phenomenal ride.
Filled with hormones, pure love, extreme exhaustion, thoughts of food and sleep consuming your mind All the time!

The way we’re connecting already.

We already know by not knowing, you want our full and undivided attention. Especially when I’m trying to get some online work done.
You are strong and fit, we can tell by your kickboxing skills -since 19 weeks already busy making your mark in my tummy – little yoga baby..
You love massage – any part of the body.
You like the sweeter things in life, I crave every day.
You don’t like to be put pressure on, in any type of way. I’m not even able to sleep on my side…
You like your space and comfort..who doesn’t?
32 weeks in… Only bliss so far.

 

This thought always bothered me.

To be able to make my own choices and provide the best environment for you to receive passage to this world, I am most grateful for… That’s why I waited ‘so long’ as people say.

The very reason this has been my one of my biggest fears. Such a natural thing, that conventional methods have made so daunting because of the few choices we have to let it happen.

I’m so disappointed in my visit to clinics, left me with unsettling feelings each time I decided to go. Only because we refuse to waste time and money on professionals that really just rip you off and can be very deceiving. The pure ignorance of people – just believing in their own opinions, left me speechless but more motivated every time.

How did you always want to have your child be born? The same way that we have always known? This thought ALWAYS bothered me.

Six almost seven years ago I decided to take the road less traveled. The road of loneliness, where no one really wants to support you or want anything to do with.
Entrepreneurship. Being your own boss. Fend for yourself. Build your own empire.

Until today, still frowned upon. People’s perceptions of how you choose to live your life. Waiting for you to fail.

Meditation is key.

Well, today I am so glad and utterly happy for making those choices. So I can make more informed choices and set my scared (controlling) mind at ease. Facing the most biggest beautiful fear on earth, the way I want to.

I chose to not go the conventional route, no hospitals, medical interventions, no egos, no hostile environment, no fear of the unknown. I chose a water birth with the help a brilliant midwife, also practicing hypno-birthing allowing my mind and body to do what nature intended.

A peaceful, tranquil,  calming passage through water into this world. (We’re always hoping for the best) The same values I would love to continue instilling into our little being. Meditation is key.

To wake up every day and give you all my attention and time will be my priority until kingdom come. That’s ultimately what we work for. To not be dictated by a company about having ‘maternity leave’ and doing things on someone else’s time, but on our own time. Already giving you our most precious commodity…time.

My mind will be my biggest test. Body just do the rest.

I am so privileged to enjoy a relaxing, pregnancy. With absolutely no unpleasant symptoms that most mom-to-be’s  experience. The usual over tiredness is the only thing I can relate to, and the obvious growing pains that inevitably take your body over, that prepares you for bringing life into this world.

I take my hat off to woman that still have full-time jobs, single woman that do it on their own. This is really something amazing to be able to do, I just wish more woman can do it on their own terms.

As I’m lying here, writing this – I can feel you move, expanding every minute – ready to introduce us to brand new possibilities, a force to be reckon with. Exciting!

The two of us will soon become three. Promise to take you on all our adventures…up the highest mountains. You already have ‘fomo’, fear of missing out.

Ready to face this fear of child birth. The most beautiful fear of all time. I believe everything will go the way I wish it will go. My mind will be my biggest test. Body just do the rest.

I wish to continue sharing my child birth experience with all of you and be an example of how we can empower ourselves to make the right decisions that align with our core believes, whatever it may be. But also keep an open mind for new more rewarding possibilities that can make this world a better place to live in, and teach the ones coming after us.

I would love to hear your child birth story! Stay connected.

Get out of the box…

[Learned from traveling the last 10 months…

Keep it simple!]

This I had to first hand learn that were not taught in schools, by our piers, or were we just ignorant by not listening and accept the the way things were taught?

Or did we just naively focus on what our parents protected us against from what happened in apartheid?

Conditioned to fall into the system. Follow the crowd. Do things the way it has always been done, traditionally…old school style.

The way we SEE things, and the way we PERCEIVE things.

Some of us are a little bit younger that others.

Media’s got a huge impact on how they want us to perceive every day issues.
These days we let the media decide for us. People are very lazy to find out things for themselves nowadays.

From a business point of view:

We live in a ‘free’ country since ’95, yet we still live in a box in our minds.

Blaming others for today’s choices we are forced into making.

Well the time have passed for blaming others. The best things in life are free to attain if we just choose to get out of our own box.

You need to be clear about where you want to end up so that you have the conviction that the small steps you are taking will eventually get you to where you want to be.

Each step you take toward a bigger goal might not seem like much to you.

It may seem like you’re not really doing much at all.

This will be especially true of any outside observers.

Others might think you’re not getting anywhere, that you’re not getting anything done.

That’s why you have to have a lot of confidence in where you’re going.

Working hard for something you don’t care about is called stress;

Working hard for something you love is called passion..

I’m passionate about what I do in life, work and business, if you love what you do its never work..

Why do we often feel so powerless?

Because we convince ourselves that we are.

We wait for things to be given to us – entitlements.

But in life, there are no true entitlements, and the truth is that if you want something then you need to make it happen for yourself.

You need to work for it.

Whether or not today is a great day doesn’t depend on the weather outside.

It doesn’t depend on your “mood” (that’s also within your control).

It doesn’t depend on anyone else.

If you want to have a pleasant and productive day then choose to have one.

It’s all about your perception and what you choose to believe and do.

You have to be willing to be the one who does it first.

You have to establish what’s  your  WHY and what is going to make you get out of bed no matter what.

In order to become a great leader you need to learn to lead from the front not from the back.

Leading from the back is telling someone to do it then you’ll do it after them.

You have to be the one who develops the real skill set not the theory.

The feeling you get from taking the first step is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around thinking about it.

So get up and get moving, is the only way.

Take the first step right now just one small step forward.

The greatest miracle of your success will not be that you finished,it will be that you had the courage to begin.

The future starts right now, TODAY, not tomorrow

Own the responsibility for your life and your journey.

Give yourself the gifts of experiences and relationships that strengthen your deepest convictions about your dream and honour the calling on your life.

Listen to your own voice, the one in your heart that is the keeper of your dreams.

Never let someone convince you that you can not do something especially if they have not done it.

Take the time to find your own path and trust your inner voice.

Know what is true for you..

Now, more than ever, We are a self-learning society, not a society that learns from its parents or from its schools.

Kids are teaching their parents how to use the latest technology, not the other way around.

And tech companies are looking for high-tech kids more than middle-aged executives with college degrees.

To stay ahead of the obsolescence curve, continual learning from up to date resources is vital.

The good news is that it’s never too late to change your thinking.

The bad news is that sometimes some of the hardest things to change are old ideas.

Some of the ones that need to change have been handed down from generation to generation.

They are very powerful ideas to break.

But you need to break them..

Be a good, hard working person.

Start believing in others and empower them to follow their dreams by following your own dream first.

As you embark on this new journey of hope, remember others like great people ” Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Muhammad Ali ” who came before you.

Remember how these people of our time started with such simple ideas to create hope and how your vision has the power to fulfill that same destiny.

No matter how much money you make the most valuable thing you can do is provide hope to others through your own inspirational journey.

Everything you have done up until now has led you to this point, and it’s up to you to take action and not be someone who talks a good game but doesn’t have the willpower to follow through.

Instead of wasting time with on social media, flood your pages with messages of hope and know that they will drown out
the messages of fear.

I leave it with:

“The world we live in is the first and foremost shaped by the mind”
