Going away for a 24 hour girls getaway on a nearby island replete with magical scenery, an empowering play, trashy novels, and delicious food should be required every month for all women. Full stop. ✨ ✨ ✨ #selfcare #mentalhealth #midlifemama #midlife #midlifewomen #midlifewoman #midlifehonesty #midlifejourney #midlifecolour #midlifemastery #midlifebeauty
Brain + body = nervous system : What’s in the brain is in the body, and what’s in the body is in the brain. : Think about how you feel when anxiety or nervousness sets in? : • Where do you feel it in your body? • What are the thoughts that activate those feelings? : This is a stress response in your body. We experience so many different types of stress throughout our lives- within each day! : Emotional stress, psychological stress( such as this), and physical stress. They’re all connected. 🧠 : Over time, this stress can develop and show up as unhealthy habits, avoidance, distraction, a myriad of emotions, illness, and pain. : We think this is our normal life - that this is “just how it is”. Truth is, these are stories we’ve told ourselves. : Our brain and body have the capacity to heal. : The only way out is through. Find the support you need to lean in and better your life- yourself!❤️ : : When you’re ready, I’m here.  www.michelelaine.com
I though I’d pop this pretty little one up for Blue Monday.  The explosion of colour in an otherwise neutral entrance to the V&A.  But I forgot!  We decided to have a ‘mix up’ Monday yesterday - to hell with this feeling blue.  We had leftover Christmas Crackers. Yes - imagine that!  Who even has leftover crackers?! We do.  And there is nothing like winning a party hat and small notepad on a cold January evening.  And then being confronted with a riddle that you cannot answer.  Or is it just me that doesn’t know ‘what you get if you cross a fish and two elephants???? Either way, our team of 3 were quite taken with this new take on household proceedings to start the week 😂 #mixupmonday #areyoucrackers  #embracechange #myfavouritemonthoftheyear #motherofteens #lovejanuary #motivationmonth #januarygoals2019 #midlifeparenting #winninginjanuary #midlifemama #midlifegoals #parentingwins #celebratethewins
This is a nice reminder for me as I deal with yet another setback on my never-ending cough. ✨ I pushed it too hard by running on Saturday after taking most of the week off. ✨ Sometimes I forget that boldness can also mean taking it easy, and listening to my inner voice as it says SLOW down and take of yourself. ✨ ✨ ✨ #stclairesorganicthroatsoothers #slowingdown #midlifemama #midlife #midlifewisdom #midlifewellness
Day 4 ... I am Kind (but not necessarily nice). #mydefinitionofshalagh .  My Mother told me this the other day. Honestly, I abhor the whole Nice Girl thing as it's loaded with compliance and subservience. But I agree that I am Kind. I was acutely aware at the holidays of how much kindness means. I thanked people profusely. And I poured it on thickly promising to continue throughout the year with that intention. .  I am finishing out January by answering the question, "Who the heck do I think I am?" So far, I'm hopeful, a lush, and a cat whisperer. Because what I think is all that really matters. Blog post today sums up my intentions.

•Healthy Lifestyle •Habits •Transformation And all the human behavior that goes with it!! I love helping people.❤️🙌🏻 . . My life in this moment is a complete 360 shift from life a short 5 years ago.  So much has changed for the better! . . I’m celebrating me. I’m not bragging or boasting- just simply celebrating all the little wins it took to get right here, right now. Taking the time to remember, honor, embrace, and embody every fear, tear, and year!! . . I’ve reinvented my life, changed old beliefs, leaned into stifling fears, and trusted myself more than ever before. I’ve stayed in gratitude and learned to love  more. : In a few weeks, more change is coming!! I couldn’t be more excited. 😀 . You see, for the past 20 years my work has been the accounting/finance/management  end of entrepreneurship along side my hubby. I devoted time to my dreams on the side, in my spare time, around kids schedules, keeping the house, and just toe dipping into the waters of my own business because I was too afraid to ask for what I wanted. A chance to build my own business from a combination of all my passions in life. . 2018 brought so much personal and business growth, opportunity, and momentum in my business. #blessed . I spoke up for what I wanted (turning point). I’d been living in a story that it wasn’t possible for me- a lie created in my mind to keep me safe. I was my limitation- not life. Not time. Not the other businesses. Me!  In owning that- everything became simple. I took action in having the difficult conversations needed to move forward. .  Well- Jan 31st ends a chapter in my life as a hand over the accounting reigns and move full time into my coaching business!🎉 : • Trusting in me. • Committing to this work. • Listening to my intuition. • Leaning into new fear to see what happens. • Excited for future growth. . So much more space for creation!!! Group coaching programs, masterminds, retreats, workshops, 1:1 clients,
Determination is something that keeps us going, no pain no gain!! Set your goals, be specific, carry them out.  #determination #goals #nopainnogain #motivationforfitness #noslacking #easypeasy #reallifestruggles #weights #muscles #lift #yougotthis

Is nothing more hopeful than a blank canvas? A chance to create whatever you can imagine. Every morning we are lucky enough to open our eyes and get out of bed the day ahead is our blank canvas. What masterpieces do you create?  FYI this is an actual scene at my house right now. My 14 year old is setting up for her and a friend to watch a Bob Ross video and paint with oils. #mycreativeteen  #bobrosspainting #teendaughter #bobrossinspired #littleartist #teenartist #teenart #oilpainting #saturdayfun #createart #createyourlife #blankcanvas #mothersanddaughters #momofteens #momofteenagers #menopausemoms #midlifemom #midlifemama #midlifewomen #womenover40 #raisingteens #mymasterpiece #dreamitdoit #possibilities #womenover50 #midlifemojo #midlife
Idleness can mean different states for each person. For me, I am most idle when my body is in motion like running, and my mind becomes still and the truth rises to the top. ✨ As I get older, I've found it increasingly important to make time to become idle, so that the truth of who I've always been and was meant to be, can surface. ✨ ✨ ✨ #virginiawoolfquotes #virginiawoolf #quotable #midlifemama #midlife #thepersuasiveajumma #midlifeblogger #midlifewomen #midlifejourney #midlifecolour #midlifeawakening #midlifemastery #midlifebeauty #midlifeclarity #midlifehonesty #running #dream #dreaming
"I gather strength from being with other women who can share their successes, their wisdom and their vulnerabilities. ✨ I need this strength to be brave and to tackle all the projects that my life throws at me. ✨ I am curious about my life right now, because every minute is a snapshot of my life being lived. ✨ At 41, my life is exhilarating, messy, beautiful and imperfect. Being able to observe and reflect on this in my quiet moments are both interesting and satisfying." -- Heloise ✨ -- Mother, passionate gardener, fitness enthusiast and tea lover.  Heloise and her family of four live a fun and thoughtful existence out in the mossy, arbutus filled land of Metchosin BC. ✨ To see the evolving collection of amazing ajummas, go to the #100ajummas project site.

Feeling motivated, hot yoga session this morning, and got a chest and biceps workout in tonight. Must say I’m enjoying the hot yoga it’s like a vacation in that heat. #motivation #feelingstrong #motivationforfitness #makeitagreatweek #strength #lovetheheat #sweat #lift4 #chestandbis #homeworkout
Soup’s on! This chicken and wild rice soup is so good and so hearty!

As I get older, I realize that the concept of "someday" has become increasingly meaningless. ✨ Even uttering the word out loud is a sad exercise in revealing my limitations as a full-time working mom and partner of a busy household. ✨ A practice I am trying to live out is instead of saying "someday" about a goal or dream, I ask myself "Do I really want to do this?" And if the answer is yes, then devise a plan to stop making excuses, and figuring out a way to achieve it. ✨ Even if that plan ends up not working out as I imagined, thinking it through and coming up with a plan takes the sting of longing away, and fills me with a sense of ownership over the goal. ✨ That sense of ownership is the fine line between feeling empowered as I get older, and letting the limitations of life get the best of me. ✨ ✨ ✨ #timferriss #timferrissquotes  #midlifeinfluencers #midlifemama #midlife #quotable #achievinggoals #dailyinspiration #wisdom #dailywisdom #wisdomdaily #inspiration #foodforthought #midlifegoalsetting
It was a hair appointment first thing in the morning and no makeup day!! #lovemylashes : Feeling beautiful inside and out. Celebrating all the feels in that. : I used to be the one who didn’t leave home without makeup. Always had to feel “put together” . It was my programming. : Today I desire ease and flow to my daily life. I’ve noticed how much of that programming I’ve released and allowed my true self to shine through. My imperfect, human, real life self- in this age- in this moment. Loving life • happy • certain in my body, with or without makeup 💕😀🙌🏻💥🙏🏻 : Emotional, physical, and neurological healing feels amazing!!!! . . www.michelelaine.com
Throwback to 2017 when I had a tan and wasn’t pasty white in colour. Visiting my parents with Katie in Florida, I wish life was just one big vacation in the sun. #tbt #tans #motherdaughter #lovetheheat #sungoddesses #lifesabeach #stuckinwinter #uggh
Ladies, it matters how we care  and nurture our body. Especially through all the changes happening in our 40’s and beyond! : It’s important to get to know your body: any signals it’s sending you, foods that work well (and those that don’t😜), as well as movements that keep you strong and agile. : It can seem daunting at times following all the things to feel good in our skin. I’ve simplified this process for myself and want to share it with you as it pertains to me- right now- in my 50’s...ready??? : Less force, more ease and flow! : Our bodies are miraculous- they desire to work optimally and heal as they are designed. Problem is, we’re not always listening- we ignore, distract, and numb it instead of tuning in and taking note. : Stress on the body comes in many forms: •work stress • daily life stress • kids • home • foods we eat • exercise • lack of exercise • extra weight • injury • toxins • environment ... : Where is it you can give it a better fighting chance by slowing down and tuning in? : What comes up when you think of slowing down??? 🤔 share in the comments below. • • www.michelelaine.com
Ya have to start somewhere!  Go for it.- #midlifemama  #inspiration  #inspire  #influencer
As a child I was scared of spiders and snakes.  When I grew up I learned that these fears were unfounded. I realised that spiders are incredibly useful AND fascinating to watch. I mean just look at this beautiful web she just knocked up!  Since moving to Spain, I’ve got over my fear of being anywhere near snakes because I’ve forced myself to stop and look at them when I spot them......yet I’m always a safe distance away.  Both spiders and snakes are beautiful lessons and metaphors for our lives.  We often have big, unfounded FEARS in our lives and when we stop to look at them whilst being in a calm state, they shrink before our eyes AND we can see the beauty in the lesson.  I have met many women who start to get a bit fidgety when I mention peri menopause and menopause itself. They fear this change.  Why?  Because many women do not relish the idea of drying up. The idea that when our fertility dies so does our:  1. Beauty 2. Attractiveness 3. Sex drive and sex life 4. Looks 5. Enthusiasm for life 6. Passion in every sense 7. Our ability to keep weight down  To name a few!  I’m here to tell you darling to take a deep breath. Don’t you worry! Your fears although seem real now, will fade away soon enough.  With proper care, advice and mindset you’ll sail through this.  DM me if you are interested in the possibility of working with me. I offer bespoke coaching packages to suit. We can set up an initial complimentary call to discuss. #lifecoach #lifecoachforwomen #transformation #transformationalcoach #midlife #midlifemama #medicinewoman #perimenopause #menopause #rockingmidlife #andbeyond #rawandrealisticfbpage
Thank you to all my followers, about a year ago I started posting my fitness journey, it’s been a pleasure getting to know a lot of people around the world. Most of people I follow are all very motivational to me, as I hope I am to them in one way or another. I follow a lot of fitness accounts and I learn from them, I’m trying to become vegetarian or vegan this has a lot to do with instagram and learning how to better myself, and help in anyway I can to make this world a better place. Cruelty free products has become important to me also, again because of posts on Instagram. So thanks everyone here’s to another great year  #1000followers #woohoo #thankyouverymuch #positivevibes #instafollowers #motivationforfitness #loveit #happydays #instafriends #fitlife #keepsmemotivated
Choosing between courage and comfort isn't just a daily choice for me, it's every waking moment of every day. It's true you can't have both, but I often find that comfort follows courage. At least comfort of the mind. ✨ ✨ ✨ #quotes #quotable #brenebrownquotes #braveryinmidlife #brenebrown #midlifemama #courage #midlifebravery #midlifeinfluencers #midlifetribe #midlifehonesty #midlifejourney #courage #couragequotes

I usually just post my workouts on my Instagram stories, but some days you just notice progress and today was one of them for me.

Dear Diary style. A scene from my Instastory. (Check it out ⬆️ or read ⬇️) I just want to share that I’ve had some days (Friday through this very moment) where it feels like absolutely nothing is going right. Each step I take, each thing I build up the courage to do, each decision that feels like it’s for my highest good and so right in the moment....has felt wrong and even painful soon afterword. From getting a haircut that makes me feel the opposite of cute to opening up to someone and not have it received well to the risk of financial loss due to miscommunication (like a legit amount)....just to name a few.  I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster riding between courage, confidence, fear and doubt. And I’m sitting here typing this because I know it doesn’t define me. I know that I’m getting caught up in the perception of things. I know that I’m struggling to practice gratitude right now. I know that I’m allowing the weight of these things to be heavier than they should. I know this. And yet they still made me cry. They still made me feel bad. They’re bringing up old insecurities and beliefs. They’re making me feel. And that is not altogether bad. Feeling it isn’t bad.  What I’ve had to remind myself is that this is teaching me something. That’s where this changes. When I look for the lesson. These bad things/triggers/life events/whatever you want to call them don’t dictate my worth simply because they triggered an emotional response. Does that make sense? Like I can cry and feel angry or sad and still not have that be a check mark in the “you fucked up” column. It doesn’t have to degrade my sense of confidence or worth. It shouldn’t.  I’ve allowed it to for a time because ...well, old stories, healing and growth. But I’m picking myself up from that right now. I can do hard things. I can overcome the programming that I’ve operated under for most of my life and I can rise above it. I can ask myself what this
Here’s a good little chart to keep handy, trying to use these food items in my diet as much as possible #health #healthyeating #proteins💪 #goodforyou #wholesomefood

One of Fiona's languages of love is beauty services. Eamon gave us manicures for Christmas and we cashed them in today. Her nails were hot pink with a random sparkle finger. For mine I chose lavender! My nails are so brittle, I cracked one off making breakfast and they are already too short! .

THINK ABOUT WHAT WENT RIGHT! ⁣ ⁣ Happy Saturday Friends Each day this week and now for a look back at my entire week, one thing that I have been implementing is to Focus on what went right. ⁣ ⁣ Instead of focusing on all of the things that WENT WRONG, or that I DIDNT GET DONE - I am electing to change my focus on what went right, and what I DID accomplish.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ That is where I want my energy to flow.⁣ ⁣  #kissass #doittoday #itsachoice #wherefocusgoesenergyflows #bossmom #choosehowtoact #middleagewomen #middleagemom #neverquit #leavethepastthere #getbackup #livethelifeyouwant #focusonyourself #solutionbasedthinking #midlifemama #midlife #backinthegroove #2019goals #2019letsgetit #2019letsgo #letsgo2019 #letsrock2019 #focusonsolutions #focuson #focusonthegood #focusongoals #focusonyourgoal #focussonsuccess #focusonwhatyouwant #focusonwhereyouwanttobe

How to survive when you don’t feel well at work. Put on the next best thing to wearing pajamas, joggers and a big sweater. Jack your hair to the sky and put some mascara on. I was going to say put a little lipstick on but after 40 it’s really all about the foundation and I’ve always been more about the mascara.  #butfirstmascara #messybun #joggers #casualstyle #midlifemama #midlifewomen #fortysomething
This is me remembering how much I love to be behind the lens of a camera.  2019 is going to be full of remembering for me.  Yes, this year is going to be all new. It’s also going to be the year I get my groove back.  Sometimes in life, we get so caught up in all the things that are happening that we just go into survival mode.  I’ve had a few of those. This year is not going to be another one.  This year I remember that I am powerful and strong. This year I remember what it feels like to play and feel pleasure.  This year I show up for myself and my calling—in my daily life and in my business.  During the month of December, I randomly started ending my journal entries with the words — I am a warrior!  This year I intend to embody that. The power, strength and courage that it conjures for me. The confidence of being all that I am and standing in that.  Unapologetically.  Reconnecting with the things and parts of me that I love while also becoming more feels really exciting! —- Are you doing any remembering/reconnecting this year? Or is it all about the new for you?

Days 2 of my clean eating and no alcohol, I am having cravings but they will go away in a week I’m sure. I will have wine on Saturday and will continue to treat myself once a week.

No resolutions, no cliches! Yes, we are starting a new year. Yes it’s a new beginning. But, God has a plan for my life. I believe He places my steps  and prepares my path. The Bible says He has good plans for me. I trust that. My job is to live intentionally, love mightily, serve wholeheartedly, let my motives be pure and genuine, and to know that my mission field are those all around me every day! Do all things as if unto the Lord!

Every year for as long as I can remember, I've held on to this notion that life would be bigger and better in the "what if" of tomorrow, or of next year. ✨ But as I age, I am finding increasing joy in the real and tangible moments of the here and now. ✨ Fact is, tomorrow my knees could decide to go, or some other unforeseen health problem could arise. Or someone near to me could die. ✨ The reality of the unknown of tomorrow has grounded me to be more grateful in the comfort and wonder of what I know for sure today. ✨ So here's to cherishing the truths that surround us in our day to day. ✨ Happy day everyone, as well as a grand 2019! ✨ ✨ ✨ #midlife #midlifejourney #midlifecolour #midlifethoughts  #ajumma #midlifewomen #midlifemama #midlifeinfluencers #midlifetribe #midlifehonesty #halborland #halborlandquotes

He’s home safe! My son went on his first overnight hike. I can’t help but be a worrier. He had a good time and didn’t freeze to death last night so I guess it was a good experience.

I've taken a break from posting during the holidays while spending time with my nearby family and friends. ✨ A highlight this season was making over 600 dumplings with my sis-in-law yesterday while indulging in a horribly wonderful chic flick. ✨ No true Korean ajumma let's too much time pass before a large batch of mandu is cranked out, in prep for New Year's dduk and mandu (rice cake and dumpling) soup! ✨ What was a highlight of your holiday? ✨ ✨ ✨ #dumplingmaking  #koreandumplings #mandu #mandumaking #koreanajummas #koreanfood #midlifemama #midlife #midlifejourney #midlifemoments #ajumma
If you need an easy and delicious appetizer or finger food idea for a New Years gathering, try these!! These wonton cups are so easy to make and they are always a hit! You only need a few ingredients, wonton wrappers, chorizo, cream cheese, and shredded cheddar cheese! My family loves these! . . . . #thingsilove #love #fashionover40 #midlifemama  #mylook  #mystyle #foodie #cooking #whatamusesme #wanderlust #newyear #wontoncups #chorizo #easyanddelicious #appetizer #fingerfood
Everyone is ok. They made us wear masks because the kids have been sick. Hopefully 2019 will be ER free! #kidsaregermy #midlifemama #hatethewait
My daughter and I made this cute veggie tree for Christmas! I got the idea from Pinterest and it turned out so cute! A creative way to get your veggies in with all the other treats! . . . . #thingsilove #love #fashionover40 #midlifemama  #mylook  #mystyle #foodie #cooking #whatamusesme #wanderlust #itschristmastime #veggietree #eatyourveggies #goodies #pinterestwin
This morning I got out my mamas recipe box. I love pulling out her hand written recipes and making the things she used to make. It is a treasure to me. Christmas Eve was her thing. We set aside that evening just for her. How I miss her. Christmas Eve will never be the same without her but we are trying our best to carry on the traditions we can. Tonight we gathered with my sister and her family at my house and enjoyed precious time and some of these precious recipes. Happy Christmas Eve! . . . . #thingsilove #love #fashionover40 #midlifemama  #mylook  #mystyle #foodie #cooking #whatamusesme #wanderlust #itschristmastime #priceless #mamasrecipebox #missyouatchristmas
My baby is growing up so fast. Last month she turned the big ONE and her big sister came home and took her pictures ❤️ Velma Johnson is her Stylist. She keeps my baby fly 😉
Holiday baking might be the only time you find me in a kitchen. I think I'm finally done. Nine dozen cookies and eight dozen truffle things and I don't want to see another sweet until next year. Haha. Jk. They must have been good because nearly half my cookies are gone (assuming it was my 16 year old, grrrr). OK not half. Haha. . . . #bakerslife #holidaycookies #christmascookies #holidaybaking #chocolatechip #snickerdoodle #gingermolasses #lemontruffle #mochatruffle #chocolatetruffle #mintchocolatetruffle #smoresbars #christmas2018 #dearsanta #itsgettinghotinhere #ineedabreak #boymom #momwithgoals #momwithaplan #midlifemama #momswithgoals #momsover40 #gethappy
Me in my happy place. Post run, in the sun, outside by the sea. ✨ May this season of merriment bring you to your happy place at least once. ✨ ✨ ✨ #whereirun #victoriarunners #selfcare #midlifemama #midlife #midlifejourney #midlifecolour #midlifemastery #midlifebeauty #runforfun
So this is Joan.  Some of you have met or heard about Joan before but let me introduce her for those that haven’t.  She was given to me by an old neighbour (Joan) on my first Christmas in my very own flat.  Joan Senior kept a very strict eye on me and my movements.  That was 28 years ago.  Fairy Joan has remained at the top of the Traditional Christmas with the other traditional and sentimental ornaments for all of these years.  Joan is a keeper.  She keeps her eye on everyone.  Nobody in my house likes Joan. They think she is scary.  They think she is watching them.  That she is old-fashioned.  But Joan is staying.  She recovered from arm surgery and is back on top of the tree now. Watching. Joan says it’s #fairynicetomeetyou to meet you.  Do you have a ‘Joan’ in your life too? #savejoan #traditionalornaments #ourchristmastree #midlifemama #midlifelifestyle #christmasfairy #traditionalchristmas #allthejingleladies #allthatglitters #thefairystays #traditionwillout #allthatglitters #sentimentalgift
We went on a Christmas date tonight! We had dinner at a new place we haven’t tried before, Maddie’s Place, and it was really good! We had steak and truffle fries! Then we went to the capitol to see it all decked out for Christmas, then drove around downtown to see all the lights around town. A lovely evening out! . . . . #thingsilove #love #fashionover40 #midlifemama  #mylook  #mystyle #foodie #cooking #whatamusesme #wanderlust #itschristmastime #dinnerdate #statecapitol #christmasdate #triedsomethingnew
​ "I turned 50 this past year. That means I’ve already lived more than half of my life. ✨ Knowing that my life clock is ticking, I’m compelled to leave a lasting legacy and live a life that counts. ✨ In my younger days, I used to seek the approval of others. I no longer have time to worry about what people think. ✨ I want to make a difference in the world. I want to empower and encourage women in midlife wherever they may be. ✨ Society, some cultures, and the media can paint an unpleasant picture of midlife for women. I’m determined to change that narrative for the better. ✨ My goal is for women to live their best midlife on their own terms, unapologetically." --Kwavi ✨ -- Mother, wife, fashion model, ballroom dancer and midlife motivator.
