Empowering and motivating young parents.
So after all my amazing training so far this year I have been thinking/ contemplating about what they mean to me and how I have developed from them. My 2 biggies this year have been my NLP practitioner which really can change your life by challenging your thoughts and secondly my Firewalking Instructor Training which challenges thought completing physical tasks. The courses match up pretty damn well. The mental and physical challenges in both courses were immense.
I got so frustrated during and after my NLP practitioner course, I realised I had been a little stuck in my own mindset. When it came to firewalking training I was ready to face every and all challenges that Barry and Steve threw at us. Strangely I found these extremely easy, but when it came to sharing our thoughts/ feelings each day I almost stumbled over my words as I couldn't find the right words to express how I was feelings.
This has set me up to reflect and think about my life and my accomplishments. Anyone who knows me will know I always say my greatest accomplishment is my gorgeous son. This feeling will never change as he has brought me so much joy, comfort, pleasure, love and pride.
I was a young mum, a very young mum. I fell pregnant at 15 years old and had my boy at 16 years old. I was so happy with my perfect little man and luckily I have a very thick skin as society wasn't all that nice about young mum's. I had so many horrible things said to me it was shocking. A few of the comments I can remember include:
