Thanks for coming on my page and welcome to my blog…
If you are reading this, you are reading the official first post of Mind Body Shine and I am so so excited to share with you what is to come on this blog.
But first of all…. Who am I?
My name is Nicole, I’m UK based, 23 years old and from a small town outside Manchester. Having just left university, I am like many other graduates: out in the real world, running around like a headless chicken wondering what the hell to make of this next chapter in my life.
The first few months after leaving uni were an absolute roller coaster of emotions, for me, and not all good. For a brief period of time, I found myself in quite a dark place; I’d ended things with a guy that I was head over heels for; I was unemployed and I felt so anxious and uncertain about the future. I know, first world problems, right?
I’ve always been into self-development and trusting in the universe and the power of positivity and all that jazz, but somehow, I’d let myself slip and got caught up in a really negative pattern. When I reflected on things after, I realised what I had been feeling came from a certain lack of something and that something was self-belief and self-worth. I neglected myself and based my happiness on things outside of myself, that I could not control. All I needed to do to relieve this funk, was give to myself the love and validation that I was craving from external sources.
And that, my friends, is what has inspired me to write this blog. I want to bring people along with me, on a journey to self-love. My aim for Mind Body Shine, is to make it a place of positivity, empowerment and shameless self-love. With my posts, I want to inspire others but also to hold myself accountable. Accountable to the commitment to fully accept and love myself, exactly as I am.
Self-love is as much a practice as it is a feeling. That’s why I want to share self-love practices for the mind, body and soul. Expect to see posts on fitness, nutrition, mind-set, motivation, love and more.
So who’s with me? Say aye! Let’s shamelessly love ourselves and not be confided to the constraints of our minds! Let’s be our own best friends instead of our own worst enemies! Let our inner worlds be so beautiful that our outer worlds have no choice but to match!
Guys, if you liked what you read, I’d love it if you gave my blog a follow. Also, please let me know if you know of any other blogs like this, or a similar nature, I’d love to connect with more people.
Thank you so much for reading.
Much love x
