Liightworker? Bringing back the ‘human’ to humanity.
Will you commit?
I adopted the name and created my own little concept around the term ‘Lightworker’ because it is a way for people to come together who want to be a part of something beautiful in the world and want to live in a positive and happy mindset. It’s also perfect for those of us who are currently feeling a little lost, a little defeated, overwhelmed or a little down because it gives you a place to go. It offers us all a wonderful purpose to help guide us while we are still understanding our life and working out what our true gifts are, and while our purpose unfolds.
Trying to explain what I do in a small box on my home page was just don’t going to happen so I decided to write my novel in a blog for those whose interest was tweaked.
I have always been ‘advised’ to shorten my posts, get to the point, and narrow things down when writing and trying to build my brand and reach my audience. Same goes with photos, show more of your physique, edit your photos so they ‘pop’, yada yada yada. So while I agree marketing (aka manipulation) definitely works and can generate a bigger audience which = cha ching more cashola, it just didn’t vibe with me.
Fill your social media and home pages with profiles and people who make you feel good, who challenge you to think deeper, who encourage you to work on yourself, to be the best person you can be, and who allow you to feel more connected to a greater purpose and passion.
There are so many beautiful people and profiles that draw you in and look good from the outside, but if you pay attention you'll realise they are doing nothing more that keeping you focused purely on how your body looks and how much you apparently are lacking when it comes to material things.
Be proud of your body, love your body, accept your body...don't get me wrong these are all great sentiments with mostly goodwill behind them, however I can't seem to get on board with these messages entirely because I think we should be more concerned with WHY the fuck are we so focused and concerned with how our body 'looks' purely on the outside in the first place?
Society pushes the idea that to be happy and successful you need either a perfect body, lots of money, and fame (either celebrity or social recognition), but what most of these things require are for the majority of people (if they are truthful with themselves) are certainly not worth the sacrifice.
Today I was looking through Marcus's iPhone album on the computer. As I clicked through the photos I realized how many photos of me never really 'made the cut'. Not that I go to outrageous efforts taking photos but I still (like everyone) judge my photos harshly against all the perfect photos of people with perfect outfits, perfect hair, perfect make up and perfect angles.
I can remember a time when I was younger and thought of myself as an athlete and I was inspired for improving and succeeding in sports. I truly believed that and enjoyed this part of my life. I was always a sporty and fit kid. I NEVER considered my body shape or thought about food. I was happy just playing sport, hanging out with my friends, getting into mischief at school and dreaming about all the things I had planned for life.
As I grew up somewhere this was lost along the way.
This is my archived story from my 'about me' page. I wrote this a while ago and didn't want to just delete it from my website completely. It is an important part of my journey and another step to finding real health, true happiness, and finding clarity in my global work. I am sure there is some value in reading this story for so many of you. Life is just a journey so know and understand that no matter where you currently are, with an open mind, conscious effort, and commitment to yourself, you can change your life entirely and find so much beauty, passion, purpose, and joy in life.
Just so you all know, I fucking struggle with the same things you do almost every other day! I get so many messages from girlfriends, clients, social media contacts, saying how strong I am, resilient, and wise etc.
But I think it's right for you to all know a few things about me you don't see through social media. Don't get me wrong my life is great, I am happy, I am healthy, but life is a journey. I have to experience all the highs/lows, good/bad, and total BS that you also do, because we are all on a path that expects us to grow throughout our lives.
I am choosing to work on my nutrition and exercise to first and foremost to create more energy and take care of my health. My happiness levels are not attached to this photo, the after photo, nor any photo. My life's purpose and joy is not tied to how I look in a bikini, how lean I am, a number on the scale, or whether I have abs or not. The things in my life that need work now, will still need work no matter how my body shape changes. I understand that overall health and wellness is a combination of not only physical, but mental, social, environmental, spiritual and financial.
