Unfortunately, it is inevitable that sometimes people say or do unfortunate things. You have no control over the actions of others, but you do have control over your own actions and reactions. As challenging as it can be, always choose kindness and compassion.

Illegitimi non carborundum

Only look back to reflect and be grateful for your adventure thus far. Don’t regret anything, every step and stumble was necessary to get you where you are today.

Admire all that you have accomplished

We all have an inner voice – make it a goal this week to set your inner voice to being your biggest cheerleader and well of support. Talk to yourself the way you would speak to someone you deeply care about.

Make sure to remind yourself that you are amazing!

You are taller than you think, a kind and wise person once said to me. Not that there is anything wrong with being short of course, but whenever I need a confidence boost I remind myself of those words. Take a deep breath and stand tall – it’s good for your psyche and your spine.

All of your struggles are simply growing pains, shaping you and making you stronger and better equipped for what lies ahead.

Keep pressing on, without struggle there is no victory.

Every now and then, challenge yourself to be vulnerable. You never know, it could be the start of an amazing relationship.

Make eye contact and make a new friend

Depending on where you are, the autumn is a wonderful time to enjoy seasonal foods. Of course, there are pumpkins aplenty, but also beets, rocket (arugula), spinach, cabbage and sweet potatoes – all of which lend themselves to delicious, nourishing meals. Take care of yourself from the inside out – and sweet potatoes and pumpkin especially are wonderful fillers for one of my favourite fall foods – PIE.

The goat pictured below is Harriet, who is friends with Cindy, yesterday’s goat. They live happily together on my friend Pippa’s farm.

Make sure to stay nourished as the days grow shorter and colder this fall

There is a saying that “Rome was not built in a day” which is absolutely true! It took over a millennia from Rome to expand from a city on the Tiber to an empire reaching from the farthest corners of Europe across the Fertile Crescent and Northern Africa. Most likely, your goal is probably not inter-continental domination, so luckily whatever it is you are trying to accomplish won’t take that long, so keep at it. If it is important to you, then it is absolutely worth the wait.

In addition, today’s goat is a friend of a friend of mine. Her name is Cindy and judging from her easy grin, she quite likes October so far.

The tools to success aren’t always military might and a big budget, but rather patience and perseverance.

Nothing really worth doing ever comes easily. Conceptualize your set backs simply as challenges to overcome. If it is really worth it, you’ll get there, but always expect there to be challenges. Just think of it as adding interesting chapters to your future victory story.

Take care of yourself, but know that the journey to anywhere amazing is going to be challenging.
