I feel like lately I’ve found this balance point between what’s expected of me & what I actually want to do. The older I get the more I’ve found this ability to say NO, no to the things that don’t serve me, no to the relationships & situations which make me feel uncomfortable & in every way YES to the person I want to become. In our society I find there are so many expectations to live up to, both physically & mentally, particularly for women this idea of ‘having it all together’ seriously?!?! Sometimes I’m a little overwhelmed by the general UPKEEP which we are constantly expected to do 🤷♀️ nails, hair, lashes, gym, makeup, clothes, skin, perfect friend, girlfriend, wife, mother, successful career, being sexy, not too sexy, have a six pack, eat this, don’t eat that, be healthy, wear this & that ...I know for me I go through periods where I’m like, arrhhhhggg can’t be bothered, let’s just eat DONUTS AND STAY IN BED ALLLLLLL DAY, that’s happiness right there folks!! when did being comfortable in your own skin become unacceptable? I really feel as women, we need to occasionally peel back the layers of who were expected to be or look like, take the pressure down a notch, because there is no such thing as perfect & it’s virtually impossible to do & be all those things!! Don’t get me wrong, I love having it all together at times, just as much as you do, but I feel like sometimes it’s ok & healthy to be a bit messy, undone & allow space to just BE. As much as possible, I’m living by my own expectations, my own drives...it’s okay to get a bit messy & let go for a bit, who cares who’s watching anyway...💕

Dampier palms always delivers. On a crazy day I took time out to head to the ocean with the pooch for some sea air.
It’s too easy to stay indoors now the kids are teenagers and their bedrooms are their fave places. So easy to get out when the kids were little but not so easy to make that choice when they don’t want to do anything with you. It’s always a choice. What choices are you making for your self care? I only wished I packed a picnic, it was soooooooo magical!

MATING CHAINS 💙 Recently we have been witnessing lots of acts of courtship between the females and cheeky young males. Today on the outside of the reef in crystal clear 💎 visibility, we watched as a male manta followed a large female along the reef. At one point he got a little too close for the females liking and off she zoomed right under us! The male kept on persisting 😁 .
Our Marine Eco Tour to see the mantas runs daily out of Coral Bay. We'd love to have you join us ✌️ Follow the link in our bio for more info 🌊 .
