hey nic (workingitout), just got some questions for you;
1. when are you going to stop comparing yourself to others? you find it so easy to tell others how destructive this process is yet don’t stop yourself when you yourself are actually doing it.
2. when are you going to start complimenting yourself? you know, like those comments you leave on your friends posts saying how wonderful they are and how beautiful they look, when are you going to do the same to yourself when you look in the mirror?
3. when are you going stop picking out flaws (or at least what you think are flaws)? I know you don’t really like your nose or legs, but why you gotta dwell on it for so long instead of challenging those thoughts and reminding yourself that you are worth so much more than those things.
4. when are you going to accept that you are exactly who you were meant to be? you keep calling yourself goofy and basic but it’s more damaging than you realise. even your friends pick up on this and tell you to stop.
5. when are you going to be your own best friend? you give so many people your time and energy yet allow yourself so little of that. I know you love uplifting others but you need to leave some room to uplift yourself with all the compliments you deserve.
after a couple of months not feeling my best self confidence wise, I thought a lil pep talk was needed & something that may even help others too ❤️ we find it SO easy to disregard our feelings and thoughts and be cruel to ourselves, but it needs to stop - we are all SO worthy! #workingitout
Wow..has it only been 10 years? When I think of 2009, I feel like I'm thinking of someone else's life. The old Ari has left the building! In 2009, I got my law bachelor and I had no idea what to do next except I knew I didn't want to work in that field 😂 A lesson I learned the hard way that year, as cheesy as it sounds, is save as much money as you possibly can so you can fund your dreams. Cuz they should be your priority🤯 #mindblown🦸♀️🦄 #tenyearchallenge
Ahhhhhhh!!!! I have ARRIVED at the retreat house + from the second I got here it has been a whirlwind!!!! :
I was greeted by the most beautiful + excited welcome party, we ran all OVER this giant house playing “find your room” and had a family style dinner. And I just got the chance to explore the house before bed. :
You guys- this is a MASSIVE mansion. And I’m sitting here getting ready to settle in + I just cannot believe that this is my life right now. That at 33 I’d be cutting up credit cards, traveling the country, living my best life with the BEST friends. :
I’m so in awe, so humbled, and SO crazy excited for all of the fun stuff that’s in store for the next few days. :
But for now?! I’m going to flop down in this crazy comfy bed with a book + be incredibly grateful for this amazing life. :

For 15 years I spent my days working in an office as a high-level Executive Assistant and Project Administrator.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I often noticed the experiences of the others working in the office as well as the lives my friends and family were living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The more I looked around, the more I noticed that no one I worked with was living their best life because of the lack of additional support in their business and personal lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I began to daydream of a reality where everyone had the freedom to live their lives. A reality where business leaders did not have to be continually working and miss out on special moments with family. Where the choice between business and passion did not have to be made. A world where start-ups and entrepreneurs could find and afford all of the help they needed. It was out of those dreams that Global VA Solutions was born.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Throwback Thursday ☺️
For the first three years of my teaching career, I lived and worked in one of the remotest communities in Australia and I loved it. This photo was taken in my second year of teaching. Clearly chilling out on the weekend somewhere on one of the beaches nearby!
I sometimes wish I knew then what I know now. I sometimes feel sorry for the kids I taught back then knowing what I know now that I didn’t know back then! 😃
But it was the journey I needed to take. Everything I knew and didn’t know had brought me to today.
22 years on and I love teaching as much as I ever did. I love making a difference. As a teacher I know academics is important but my greatest joy in teaching comes from helping kids to change their mindset, change their self talk, feel empowered and confident with language and knowing they are control of everything they do. It doesn’t take much but to this day, it is what you will hear me talk about more than anything else.
If you are just starting out or in the beginning stages of your teaching journey, be okay with not knowing it all yet. Embrace the suck, learn from the hardest moments and always, always put your students mental well-being before academics.
They won’t remember what you taught them but they will remember how you made them feel ♥️♥️♥️

So i brought Ra in to work Tuesday cause he has been limping more since playing with atlas so much. We did blood work because we were thinking of giving him pain meds and he felt bonier... He has been slowly losing muscle mass over the past year or two. It had also been a year since we had done labs. His organ chemistry values and urine looked great but his complete blood count was kinda crazy looking and needed an extra review from a pathologist. Unfortunately it did not come back with good news. He basically had cancer in his blood (stage 5 lymphoma)which is starting to cause him to be anemic and have other blood cell issues. So sadly I Am, writing this note to let everyone know that the next time you are at my house and you see my handsome first born to give him lots of love. We are starting prednisolone but it could be anywhere from weeks to months left for him. He is 15 years old. Please put Ra in your thoughts and prayers and whatever else it is you do. I love My Ra baby. I am glad I have such get veterinarian friends they can help Me through this. #vettechlife#vetmed#lymphoma#fuckcancer#cat#seniorcat#blackcat#sungod#ra#devastated#liveyourbestlife#catsofinstagram#vettech#stage5lymphoma
So my bestie @cindy21julie has decided to spread her wings, live her best life and relocate to the Caribbean Islands 🙌😭 So sad that I'm not in Cape Town to say goodbye, but I'm definitely coming to visit soon 🌞 #Wanderlust#Travel#Liveyourbestlife
Blessed to breathe the air that I breathe
Blessed to be alive ✨
WE MADE IT! After a 30+ hour trip, probs the worst Jetlag I’ve ever had (20 weeks pregnant plus 30+ hours sitting in either a car, plane or bus isn’t exactly what my body was craving 😅) didn’t move all day yesterday but now we’re here. 5am beach times, soaking up all the vitamin D we can get, diving in the ocean 🌊 and counting our blessings cause even though I feel like someone chewed me up and spat me back out I’m still a hell of a lucky human being. #celebratelife

I truly love this. When did the simple things in life become so complicated? Can you pin point when you stopped living in a simple world... what age you were? Children are getting younger and younger when they become aware of outside influences, it’s such a worry. One of my 2019 goals is to try to live more simply. Take time to appreciate everyone and everything I surround myself with, no matter how large or small. Today this stick is a magic wand... come on - make it snow! ❄️😬 #simplelife#liveyourbestlife
#StewReviews - 17/01/19
Norton's Irish Pub - Leichhardt, NSW
This stew reviewer doesn’t know what’s hotter - the temperature outside, or my heart at the deliciousness of this week’s stew!
For a respite on this warm January evening, we popped into a charming and highly recommended Irish Pub for a hot bowl of Irish Love.
This place certainly lived up to its reputation! The stew was chock full of perfectly cooked beef and lamb, soft and tasty chunks of potato, pieces of carrot, celery and onion, and it was all nestled warmly in a thick, savoury broth. With a few slices on the side for dipping the beginnings or dabbing the remains, not a drop of this magnificent beast goes to waste.
This is a good stew.

Always sad to watch the parents head off but thankful they were able to see the boys get 2 strong wins! Now it’s time to focus and start grinding 🔥💪🏽 #srilanka#srilankanrugby #2019
What is the thing you work the hardest at that you’re most proud of? The ‘thing’ that’s just yours. Not you as Mum or Wife or any of your endless roles but something you do for you. Mine is YouTube. Started with no skills, jumped right in and have worked my butt off learning and growing. I’m almost at 30000 subscribers.... whaaat!? So that’s my thing I love and am proud of, that and my fitness journey. Feeling proud to be stronger than ever before. Tell me yours!
This month I am putting on a giveaway! Every order made will go in the draw to win a goodie pack which will include a rebel sports voucher and a bossbody pack🤗🤗 PLUS it’s not too late to order for the 60 day challenge that has a $2000 CASH prize.
I literally stopped and smelled the roses this afternoon! I’ve been working on my word for 2019 and I want it to signify bringing my holiday self into my everyday self. Still thinking though and open to ideas? My 2018 word was SLOW but I’m ready for a more dynamic year this year while still being mindful of giving myself quality time and allowing a pace that creates peace and health! 🤔🤔 Do you like to give yourself a word for the new year to infuse your thoughts and actions?
To candy floss or not to candy floss, that is the question....
We want #anelegantfusion to not only be a great night out, but something a little bit magical. Candy floss always reminds me of the funfair when I was young & how happy I was walking around with a sweet bigger than my head & sticky fingers! - in an elegant way of course 😉
So, if you’d like free-flowing candy floss that evening to accompany your delicious alcohol free cocktails then grab yourself a ticket!
We know it’s not healthy but it makes us happy! 😊
LET IT GO 💙💙 One of my biggest tips for getting ready to slay in the new year and stay on top of your game is to let go of the things in life that no longer serve you, feed your soul or make you happy
Letting go is the key to FREEDOM and my books, freedom is the key to HAPPINESS
Be unapologetic, stop letting other opinions sway your goals or your destiny, stop putting energy into areas that make you feel anxious and make the very most of this year and how INCREDIBLE it’s going to be
It’s time to focus on what’s in front and let go of the past. Detach from outcome and focus on the process
Let go of the barriers you’ve created that keep you imprisoned and WELCOME new and exciting opportunities

Yoga isn’t all about fancy poses and head stands, although they can be fun too!!! It’s about connecting within uniting the power of breath with movement.
This one of our favourite gentle warm ups - lengthening and rounding the spine with Cat & Cow followed by connecting the right and left hemisphere’s of the brain with a flowing of breathe.
Inhale - knee to elbow
Exhale - release and straighten
Yoga is truly for everyone!!!! .
