Vibeke Murphy - What makes me FLAWSOME
Posted on 30 March 2015
Our Ambassador Vibeke Murphy, shares her thoughts on FLAWSOME.
To me FLAWSOME is - An individual that embraces their flaws and thinks that they are awesome anyway.
As a mother to two small children, a small business owner, fitness fanatic, wife and friend I always strive to do my best in all areas of my life, however I've come to realise that it's impossible to be on top of everything all at the same time . There is a constant ebb and flow of one receiving a little more attention than the other.
I thrive on being a mother and a professional however I understand that in order to prevent burn out and low self confidence I need to pour in a little self love and nurturing and accept who I am. For me this means being fit and healthy and staying connected to my friends. I exercise most days because it makes me feel happy and strong, although I sometimes just turn off the alarm and catch a few zzz's instead. I eat healthy wholesome food because it gives me the energy I need to power through however I have huge sweet tooth and regularly indulge in treats. I cherish time with my kids but sometimes feel overwhelmed by their constant demands and needs. I run a thriving chiropractic practice, teach corporate yoga classes and regularly teach anatomy and physiology workshops at yoga schools. Just as with life in general there is an ebb and flow in business and after many years of stressing myself out over having too many clients or not enough clients I've come to accept that it will never be just perfect and I'm learning to enjoy the different rhythms in my business and life. On days that I feel totally out of my depth I try to write down three things that I feel grateful for and it helps me to realise that even on our darkest days life gives us little rays of sunshine to help remind us how Flawsome we all are. I feel blessed and privileged to have a beautiful family, loving friends , good health and opportunities to grow and learn.
