A Gift From Me To Me This Valentine’s

A Gift From Me To Me This Valentine’s

A gift of love from me to me this Valentine’s

Yes, so why do we wait for gifts of love from someone else?  Why don’t we just do it for ourselves?  Every now and again this question pops up for me and it happened again on Monday.

I was doing the BIG clean around the house as you do.  I actually don’t mind cleaning generally but when you take on the whole house in one go it’s hard work.  I start at the top of the house, bathrooms, bedrooms, treatment room which for some reason I enjoy.  Then the dreaded stairs and the task becomes overwhelming thinking of what’s left to do.  Vaccuming the hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, then the steam cleaner comes out for the tiled floors.  I was so ‘grumpy’ at the end of it I just thought I’ve had enough.

Before my hip surgery, I had a cleaner.  But I decided in my wisdom that I could now do the cleaning myself and save a few quid.  However, this week I realised that my own wellbeing is worth the ‘few quid’ so I got in touch with my lovely cleaner again and she’s available.  Yippee!!!

Then on Tuesday morning I went for my own Reflexology treatment with a friend.  At the end of the treatment, I was booking in my next session when I realised my preferred time co-incided with when the cleaner is coming.  I burst out laughing, saying, ‘how bad, I’ll be lying down having reflexology while my house is cleaned’.  I couldn’t have planned it better.  I was so happy and pleased with myself.  So I’ve now decided that I’m going to continue this routine going forward.  imagine the joy of having a treatment, then coming home to a clean house.  Oh what joy!!!

So that’s my loving gift from me to me.  What will you do for you this Valentine’s?  No guilt or judgement please, just do what makes you happy.  And let me know how you get on please…

Love & light 
Yvonne

Summer Fun!

Summer Fun!

1 year on since my hip surgery

This week represents a full year since I had my hip surgery and I’m back doing all the things I love with the people I love and having fun in the sun.  My physical fitness challenge was to be back dancing when I celebrated my 50th earlier in the year but since then I’ve really pushed myself and I’m now back hiking in the countryside and climbing on rocks along the coastline.  Anyone who does the Mindfulness with me knows what these activities mean to me as I use them alot in my visualisations.  To be honest, my physical ability is great but my confidence in moving freely took a bit longer but I’m getting there and I’ll continue to push myself over the summer.
It goes without saying how grateful I am to be back moving freely and again I want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement.  I have amazing people in my life and I feel very fortunate, so thank you!

What’s been happening?

So over the last few weeks it’s been busy here at Just Be with 2 new babies, 1 boy and 1 girl born just last week and 2 long awaited pregancy announcements. You can’t beat news like this but there’s also been some positive feedback from women who have overcome some personal challenges, both physically and pschologically.

People always ask, what’s my faviourite treatment to do and I honestly couldn’t say as it really does depend on the person I’m treating.  The most popular is definitely reflexology closely followed by Reiki then Hopi Ear Candling.  When I go for treatments it depends on what’s going on for me at the time.  At the moment I’ve been having massage as I’ve been holding tension in my shoulders, probably from work.  Mostly I have reflexology as it’s a good all round treatment for health and wellness. I practice Reiki or Mindfulness on myself daily too so that keeps me grounded and helps me to #justbe

Love is all around us…

Love is all around us…

After 35 years, here I am meeting my first love an idol Paul Young at UCH Limerick

Love is all around us…

We all go through tough times and I’ve been struggling recently so decided it was time to pick myself up and find my happy again.  So to start I took myself off for breakfast last Tuesday morning, my favourite of french toast with bacon, caramel sauce and of course some fruit (just for balance).  When I arrived at the cafe, the waitress showed me to my table, gave me the menu and then said, ‘how can I help you my love’?  Well she got my attention so obviously I gave her my order.  As she was taking the menu back, she asked ‘would you like a paper?’ and again I thought how lovely and said yes.  Anyway, I was reading away when she arrived with my order annoucing at the top of her voice, ‘cooked with love and served with love, enjoy’.  Of course I replied, received with love, thank you.  Well the endorphines were flying around my body and I was feeling fabulous again.  Feeling so great, I decided to extend this happy moment and went for a walk along the river down by UL Boathouse.  The sound of the birds singing was so loud, I couldn’t ignore it and there on the pontoon was this Herring (see image), standing proud and powerful.  So I thought to myself, what message am I receiving and decided it’s ok to stand in my own power and be my true self which of course you all know by now is to Just Be Happy & Healthy. 

Now some cynics might think, the waitress was looking for a big tip or it’s her job to be nice but I just felt she knew I needed that little extra that morning.  People can read us and if we take a step back and see how people are and not take it personally, we can feel what they need in that moment. Pay attention to those you interact with.  They don’t know how you woke up this morning, but recognise the kindness people are offering you and trust me you’ll feel better. 

So yes, I’ll struggle on, pick myself up and continue to be #justbe #50andfeelingfabulous and sending you all lots of love and light.

What a few weeks – life is fabulous

What a few weeks – life is fabulous

What a few weeks – life is fabulous

So in my last blog I mentioned I was turning 50 and what this milestone meant to me. I’ve been visualising and manifesting how, what, where and most importantly how I would feel for my 50th year which is to be 50andfeelingfabulous.  Well to say it has exceeded my expectations so far would be the understatement of the year and I’m only 3 months in.  Yes, it was my actual Birthday so most of the fun was packed into the last month, but I still have a few bits to look forward to. 

In review, my 50th celebrations started with a Revas Spa Day in Adare with a very dear friend and got me ready for my day out with my childhood buddies, my sister, nieces and sister-in-law starting with Afternoon Tea at The Savoy followed by drinks and dancing at 101.  These ladies know everything about me and support me no matter what happens in my life.  Everyone needs to nurture friendships like these.  I also danced my heart out, a goal for my 50th following my hip surgery last summer.  Oh and I was wearing my heels so a double aheivement.

The following week I had a couple of midweek lunches with the first at The Coach House, Adare Manor.  This was a real treat and surprise for me with, very dear friends and colleagues from my previous job as an Event Manager.   They know exactly how I like things and they didn’t disappoint I’ll tell you.  Then I had an impromtu lunch at my house with the ‘Gals’.  The Gals and I trained together at the Holistic Centre of Excellence, so although they only know me a few years, they have also become amazing friends and are a great support to me.

Then came the big celebration with my husband and a very long awaited trip to Cuba.  Jim and I were booked to visit Cuba back in 2010 for our honeymoon.  But, we had to cancel as Jim past out, feel down the stairs and ended up in hospital a couple of days after our wedding and a day before we were due to fly.  Yes, it was a very tense few days but he was diagnosed with a brain virus and had 3 months at home recovering.  So you can imagine our excitment at finally going to Cuba and it didn’t disappoint.  Sun soaked days followed by a couple of Mojitos on the veranda before dinner.  The architecture, the people, the history was facinating.  We even got to spend a evening at Floridida Bar and Restaurant, the very place Ernest Hemmingway spent his days (and nights) drinking daiquiris which of course we had to try and very nice they were too.  But, you will also appreciate the quieter moments we had just sitting in the sun reading a book (Becoming by Michelle Obama, and yes I would highly recommend it), or a leisurely swim because it’s just too hot, or beautiful walks just wondering and observing the amazing architecture and atmosphere of Havana. We also stopped in Toronto on our way back home and got to visit Niagra Falls and see the Raptors Vs Knicks Basketball Game, very exciting for us as we last saw both teams play each other in Maddison Square Gardens in New York a few years back.  We are big Knicks Fans but Jim’s favourite Basketball player is Leonard who is currently playing for the Raptors.

And then to top off March, I got the ‘glad rags’ on again and attended the Mid West Cancer Foundation – Butterfly Ladies Luncheon at The Savoy Hotel and got to catch up with old and new friends.  A lovely afternoon topped off with not just 1 but 2 prizes from the draw.

To say I feel blessed, fortunate and grateful to everyone in my life and of course #50andfeelingfabulous and #justbe

Love & Light

Of course, I’ve been working away too and it’s always great to see our
favourite Limerick Instagram blogger @sineadscurvystyle visit the
Just Be Clinic for Reflexology.  Sinead suffers with lower back pain
caused by sciatica and gets great relief from Reflexology.  She visits once
a month to maintain her general well-being as she’s on the go all the time
attending events for her blogging and of course her singing. Thank you for
your continued support Sinead.

50 and Feeling Fabulous

So while I was swimming this morning I was thinking back to this time last year. I knew I was going to be having surgery and that my mother would also have major surgery before she started doing dialysis.  It was somewhat daunting but here we are a year later and all is well.  How blessed we are that everything worked out.

Then I started thinking about how 2019 is going and how I want to continue the year.  Well this month I turn 50 and I have a few treats planned and really excited about the year ahead.  Then I started to check in with my physical body as I moved through the water and thought ‘I feel fabulous’. Then I thought how do I feel mentally and emotionally and again I thought ‘I feel fabulous’  Even now I feel fabulous writing this even though I did lose my swimming hat, goggles and ear plugs in the dressing room, but I’m sure someone just put them in their bag by accident and they’ll be returned. Anyway I’ve decided I want to feel like this all year, so my moto and hastag for this year will be #50andfeelingfabulous

How will I achieve feeling fabulous

Since I started Just Be, everyday I work towards being happy and healthy and generally, well 90% of the time, I am.  I honestly love the life I have created.  That won’t change and like always there will be bumps along the way. But what does happy and healthy feel like?  Well for me, this year anyway, it’s feeling fabulous!

Like you, things don’t always work out.  The car breaks down, the washing machine dies, appointments get cancelled, we loose stuff, the list is endless.  But these things are fixable and temporary so I focus on the bigger things like my family and friends, my home, my work and the things that make me feel fabulous. I practice what I preach by taking care of myself first before others and I know who I can rely on when I need support.  Trust me I don’t do it all myself.  Yes I put the work in but I get twice as much back.

So I challenge you to also feel fabulous every day.  Take a moment each day and think ‘how am I doing?’ and change it if you don’t like how you feel.

Love & light
Yvonne
