10 THINGS YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT ME
I'M 40 YEARS OLD BUT PEOPLE TELL ME LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER.
At the age of 17, I decided to completely turn my life around and become the positive, healthy person I knew was inside of me. It took a long time to get where I wanted to be and I’m still travelling the path - but actually I'm live as healthily as I can, in a very clean environment, eating 80-90% organic. I drink plenty of water and just try to be as happy as I can!
I start every day with a glass of aloe vera, collagen and apple cider vinegar to drink with my usual supplements.
WHEN I'M REALLY STRESSED I EAT & EAT & EAT.
As a Nutritionist Therapist and Healthy Living Blogger I'm try to be clean in almost everything I do. Because I know I'll have days when I'll eat a lot, constantly and without feeling guilty. Sometimes, I have that strange desire to feel full as a comfort zone. I imagine after many years travelling and living away from home, I need to find a place to call home. I know, I know...
I BELIEVE IN POSITIVE THOUGHTS, VISUALISATION AND WORK HARD. I'M A MOSTER OF IDEAS!
I love to visualise my plans, my projects and everything I would like to achieve in the near future. I spend my free time writing down my future and creating new visual boards to focus by creative energies. I love just walking by myself, thinking and dreaming up new ideas. I don't need anyone to make my life nicer - just myself, a good coffee and all the time in my world.
I NEED DISCIPLE TO BALANCE MY CHAOS.
I think the reason for this is basically that I'm involved with so many projects all at the same time. The only way I can juggle everything is by keeping very strict discipline and having a strong conscience. So, I plan every single minute of my day, even if it doesn’t work out that way in the end.
I TWICE TURNED DOWN MARRIAGE PROPOSALS
In my early and then late 20s, I decided to break two long-term relationships with men who wanted to marry me. Both times, the situation was so overwhelming that I just walked away. I’ve never looked back and I'm so proud of that decision because I started to travel and now, I have plenty of stories to tell. Years later, I met the love of my life but the timing and communication weren’t great. Now, I'm dreaming of an amazing, simple wedding by the beach., surrounded by friends and family, all having a wonderful time.
I HAVE TATTOOS IN MEMORY OF DEPARTED LOVED ONES
A few years ago, I along with my best friend Carol, decided to have get tattooed to remember the people who are no longer with us - 5 birds on the side of my hand remind me that life is beautiful and we should be happy with everything we have.
I LOSE MY PATIENCE WHEN PEOPLE DON’T ACCEPT THE WAY I AM
After I started my journey as a health foodie, I experimented with different food choices - vegan, macrobiotic, vegetarian and many other paths that I’d always wanted to try. Since the start of January 2018, I've been living plastic-free and I go completely bananas when people say things to me like: eating healthy is too expensive; salads are alive to; committing to a plastic-free lifestyle is an unrealistic fantasy. etc etc.. My answer is always the same: well, I don't tell you what to do, so please - just leave me alone with my choice! :)
I'M TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MY LIFE. 100% I ACCEPT MYSELF EXACTLY AS I AM.
I’ve learned this lesson and I’m still learning it. I don’t put the blame on anyone else. I believe that you yourself create who you are, and no-one else is responsible for that.
So, breathe in, breathe out and take responsibility for your life, babe! It isn't outside circumstances. It is ONLY YOUR responsibility.
NO BROTHERS OR SISTERS
I just never had siblings, so I become very independent person.
I HAD ESTHETIC SURGERY
Last year I had tummy tuck surgery and I'm planning another operation. After I lost 42 kilograms I had excess tummy skin and there was nothing I could do about it. I don’t regret it at all!
That’s me - no more, no less!
Love, Mel x
