This was my first surf back in a little while and to be completely honest, I was sh*ting myself a little bit!
The oceans been super aggressive recently and after hearing about the devastating news on Bondi last Saturday, I was much more cautious than usual. Despite being a little nervous I had a really fun time and caught a sweeeet wave. It’s funny how sometimes one wave can make the session so worth it 😂
Sometimes when you get out of a habit and you feel a little out of your comfort zone, the best thing to is to bite the bullet and go full steam ahead 👊🏼 That said, please please treat the ocean with respect and be careful - particularly if you’re not used to it and you’re new to a beach and it’s currents.
Put your health first 🙏🏼
Sometimes it can feel like we have a lot of weight on our shoulders. There’s this high pressure to be fit, go on holidays, have a high flying job, or hey, quit your job and still be successful etc.
I just want to remind you that those things don’t actually matter unless your healthy. Your health should always be the most important thing but often, (myself included) we neglect it for social status, a fitness goal, work or money.
Much easier said than done, but look after yourself & look after each other. You’re not a hero if you keep going to work sick and don’t get better, and you’re not failing if you haven’t nailed all those things above. ❤️
What a crew 🙌🏼
I honestly love my mornings training this team of fun, supportive and hard working legends 👊🏼

It’s a stormy afternoon here in Melbourne, rumbling of thunder across a dark grey sky, some good rain cleaning the air... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This weather got me thinking about feelings, how they are just like weather systems: they blow in, sometimes arriving suddenly, other times brewing slowly, even allowing us to see the storm approaching. And then they blow out, leaving space for something else - a calmer sky, clearer air, maybe sunshine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know when we feel deep pain, it’s easy to fall for the belief that the agony will last forever. When we are anxious, it is almost impossible to remember that there are times in our lives when we are calm. When we are caught in the storm, it feels it will never change. It happens even with joy or the more ‘sunny’ feelings we experience… It’s like time stops.
When the storms blow in, we need to remember that we are ever evolving beings, and that feelings change – they may take five minutes, one hour, one day, one week to move along, but they do indeed eventually blow out to leave space for something else to come through. That’s the beauty of life. If it was otherwise, we would probably be bored to death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rainer Maria Rilke said that no feeling is final. In the poem The Guesthouse Rumi invites us to see feelings as welcomed guests in our home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This photo was taken years ago in Bondi Beach - a reminder of the beauty and creative power of storms... a reminder that all feelings come and go... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #therapy#aletheiatherapy#mentalhealth#mindfullness#feelings#innerstorms#bondibeach
