Just Be Revolution – “Your Way Or Their Way”

This is a very personal post today, I know that being comfortable and content is one thing but happiness is SO much more. Feeling ‘enough’ to receive anything is a struggle. To receive thanks, money, gratitude, compliments… name it.
I’ve already achieved much in my life but was it “My Way” or “Their Way”… enjoy!

“All my life, when I’m truly honest with myself I’ve always done the ‘right thing’ or ‘what’s expected.’ I passed high school well, I traveled for a year, I went to uni and graduated, got married, work hard, had kids, am a good mum and wife. I’m now 33 with 3 kids and although I’m content I do sometimes wonder what would life look like IF?”

Just Be- Blog “Your Are Your Thoughts”

Please click on the link below to read more from my Just Be Revolution Blog post:

“When you spend so much time in a negative head space, you outwardly research and glean examples of why something is 100% truth. When you’re in a positive mindset, the same is true, however it’s not detrimental to your own self. Your beliefs are an equation of

Thoughts + Feelings + Research/Proof= Belief.”

The Perfection of Imperfection

After branding Megan Hall Motivation late last year, it solidified many things for us. Our undeniable friendship, business ventures, love of wine but most of all our love to talk.
Megan came to me early in December and put to me a proposal to create a Podcast with her where we talk about topics and share personal stories close to us that inspire us to do and be better. We wanted to find women of inspiration whom we could also interview to share their journeys also.

Fast forward to January 1st and our first podcast was launched on The Inspired Women Podcast. Before the week was up we were also being cast on iTunes, GooglePlay, SoundCloud and a few other platforms. This blew us both away.
After listening back to the first episode I had a major panic of uncertainty and messaged Megs in a panic. “I can’t do this, you sound so professional and I don’t and you don’t want me part of the show”
In typical “Jules freaking out and Megan comes to save the day” she told me to calm down and relax. She had already been sent feedback about our first episode and it was ALL positive. Wait… What? Someone listened? Insert continued mix of above freak out mixed with excitement.
Fast forward three weeks and we now have heard My story, Megan’s Story and on Monday will launch my incredible friend and life coach, Amy Latta. Her story is about being Brave, Silly and Worthy. Three words that are so lost as we grow and are crucial to the whimsy and joys of life.

We then get a glimpse into the incredible work of Rockstars and Royalty in Australia and how Vicky is pivoting and growing her brand into an international powerhouse. She’s creating from a space of truth like no other designer. Her story is also incredibly inspiring!

Today after casting with Katy Blevins Calabrese, Co-founder of Modern Femme, there were words spoken that have echoed with me all day…
“Nothing will ever be perfect, it’s finding joy in the imperfections”
You’ll have to wait to hear her and her story but it was electric for me to be part of her interview and witness her truthfully speak about her journey to date.

The beauty of what I get to be part of, is that I hear and see myself in SO many of these incredible stories and learn from each of our guests. I get to hear my inner critic come knocking and I can now tell them to go away; for today, and tomorrow, all the way to never coming back again.

The confidence it’s creating in me means that I’m also shifting and pivoting. As you’ve seen from my last few blogs, I am now branding internationally from start up business through to globally expanding companies. It is something I take great pride in being part of and I have realized my service within creating truly sets me on fire. I still create Fine Art pieces as my outlet but my awesome clients are keeping me busy!

What does this mean growing forwards? It means learning to be ok with Imperfect Perfection. It means the washing may not get done every day- but most days, It means juggling non work life and life, being present for my family and showing up as my BEST self. It means planning, scheduling and learning about things I haven’
t always been comfortable doing. It means imperfect progress and being ok with failing forwards.

It means getting over myself and pursuing what makes ME happy and listening to my intuition. It means finally feeling like I can provide again and not self sabotage what I build and create. It’s stepping into my potential and enjoying the ride!

Creative Education

20140204-180044.jpg

Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week I spent in Canberra. Now before all of Canberra get upset I didn’t see them, to be honest I didn’t see you either. I flew in at 3:30pm Thursday afternoon, had a quick date with my naturopath and then headed to collect my favourite Hope from work. Whilst trying to work out my hire car, Hope was trying to break in. Unbeknown to me, the car locks itself while you have it turned on to stop people like Hope busting in for a long awaited hug.
We set off to the city and quickly grabbed some dinner before heading to listen to Jesh De Rox. His name even sounds cool doesn’t it! Jesh is the creator and amazing mind behind Beloved Photography. I’ve studied his online training and I’ve been utilising it in sessions ever since. Actually being in the same room and listening to him speak was IN-CRED-IBLE. Thursday went from 6:30pm-10pm then most of us went out with him to the city to get  late night snack and keep the conversation open. Time VERY well spent.  I think we crawled into bed around midnight…

Friday began with a vacuum cleaner… Interestingly enough it was like being home on a Saturday morning as a teenager. After some fun locating  Jesh in the city we headed back to Hope’s studio for a full day of Jesh intensive.

Six of us joined Jesh for his workshop all unknown to myself except Hope. There was Bec, Jodie, Briony and Dani all who had no idea that inside I was trying to hide in the corner like I normally do. After a few get to know you exercises Jesh style we were well bonded and snort laughing at each other. It doesn’t take long to make bonds when you realise “no one in the world is a stranger, they are just people who’s story you dont know yet”. Jesh

I wish I could explain to you what we did. But I can’t. It was an experience difficult for words but amazing to be apart of. I know I laughed and cried a little and then laughed a whole lot more. I am filled with fantastic moments and quotes which I have been replaying over and over since. I supposed I now know what Hope meant by the Jesh bubble. I’m in mine and not coming out!
I came away from the loooooooooong day feeling like it had been only a few hours and all I could muster to say was ‘awesome’.

I nervously had my accreditation test at the end of the day and passed. I passed!!! 🙂

I have taken away tools that will help me become a better photographer, but more importantly it will also help me be a better mother to my kids, wife to hunky bear and friend to those both close to me and those I am yet to meet.
