What Fatigue Is Trying To Tell You

My goodness this feels good to back and typing away. I apologise for my sudden departure with little to no explanation but I *hope* I am back for regular posting! My weeks have been completely swallowed by my most recent endeavor; I am currently in the process of gaining my certificates in fitness! I've been on the fitness train for a little while now so getting to a position where I'm going to be considered a 'fitness professional' is a little bit cool.

I am required to attend Tafe four full days a week and for a girl who hasn't lived on a school schedule for a solid 7 years it has been intense and fatigue has slapped me in the face. By the end of every week I have been moody and depleted of any kind of emotional nutrients so writing a blog has been something I've been happy to place in the backseat (only till I get my things back in order!).
Since I am currently dealing with end-of-week fatigue and I know a lot of people are too I thought we'd touch on that for this week. Let's lower the threshold and a create sustainable change to eradicate feeling drained and over it all.



Is what you're doing really what you want to do? Straight off the bat, ask the question 'is this really what I want?' If not, annoyance and fatigue will step in without hesitation.
There are two directions you can move in and two only, towards what you desire or away and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell what direction you're headed in.
If it makes you feel uncomfortable and unhappy then it's time for a reevaluation and you should look into doing that now to the best of your abilities. You may feel uncomfortable because what you're doing is intense but if you can't imagine your life without it (in a healthy way my friends) then it sounds like you're on the money. I'm sure you'll be able to discern between the two. 

For me, what I am doing is exactly what I want as it works hand in hand with my goals and what I wish to achieve and I'm genuinely interested in what this course has to offer. I do however find it a taxing as it is mentally demanding but the doors this will open for me are far greater than any small amounts of discomfort I feel right now. Eyes on the prize baby.

There is a big difference between being fed up with what you're being served and being fed up with the bi-products that come voluntarily. For me, my irascibility and vexation stems from the later, creating the bain marie of my loiyyfe. After my initial scheduled Friday flat spin and rant at my Mother (thanks Ma) I come back around pretty quickly to acknowledging that this is part of the process and even though I'll accept all of it I won't let it dictate my thoughts or feelings.
'Is this really irritating me or is the people/places/work load etc?'

Fatigue is a clear signal that you are running low in all accounts, you're participating in a lifestyle that is no longer working for you and after all this time of not looking after yourself your body and mind don't want to try to keep up anymore. This is not a bad thing rather a calling for change. It's time to release the expectations you or others have so very graciously placed upon you and start living your life the way that it pleases you.

Love, Delilah

Dealing With Online Criticism: Brushing It Off & Moving Forwards

My first personal run-in with online criticism occurred this week in a somewhat odd and unexpected fashion but unexpected is to be expected when it comes to me as I'm just a wild child and would rather not walk in a straight line. I've never been one to dish out hate online as (and correct me if I'm wrong) I feel it just clashes with The Resplendent Lioness brand I'm trying to build but at the same time I've never really received it either. Actually I take that back, I did feel personally attacked a handful of times when I had my Taylor Swift fan account back in 2014 whenever someone openly claimed that they didn't like her. 14 year old me was scared but down to fight when it came to being a Swiftie.
It was a roller-coaster of emotions the first 10 minutes after reading someones unnecessary and uneducated opinion on my blog in an online community help page but once I stepped off the ride and allowed my feet to hit solid ground again the hills didn't seem a…

Creating Content: The Other Side Of Productivity & Inspiration

I haven't felt uber inspired to produce this weeks blog to be completely honest as I haven't been in a super great frame of mind. My thoughts have been scatty and my emotions have been strewn across my bedroom floor like dirty clothes I need to put in the wash but simply can't be bothered to. These feelings are partially to do with me wanting my content to be perfect and placing immense amounts of pressure on myself that would result in pooping rainbows or growing a second head. But just like every other week, Thursday rolls around and I have nothing, no inspiration or motivation to sit down and pour the next 12 hours into writing which is a draining standard I've gotten a little too used to.
Even when I don't have a hard hitting subject to cover or questions to raise I still wish to keep my steady rhythm of posting every Thursday because even though creating new content can drive me up the wall it still very much keeps me sane and it would feel like a part of me …

Living In Fear: Goodbye To Old Trauma & Hello To Your Genuine Truth

We are blessed to be alive in a day and age where technology is at an all-time high, international solo travel is more than possible and safer than ever, information is abundant and overflowing from every open stream of consciousness but we still live so much of our lives in fear. There is nothing wrong with fear like there is nothing wrong with anything that ever was, but living in survival mode for your whole life is not thriving like you and me were born to. Fear is something all humans feel, you can't not as it's kind of ingrained into our make-up after long lines of ancestral trauma and because we're animals with survival instincts. But times have changed and you don't need to shelter yourself in a blanket of fear anymore because we are at a point in evolution where staying 'safe' is far more dangerous than putting yourself out on the line.
A little over a month ago I fell apart and in that process I dropped and shattered the hard protective coating I enc…

Nothing Turns Me On Like Good Aesthetics Do: My Favourites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So often the little things go unseen and overlooked but without these forgotten tiny miracles the world would be pretty damn lackluster. I personally seek the little precious moments that you could melt into and hold onto forever, they keep me optimistic and make me feel infinite in a dimension that feels a little too physically restrictive for my liking. How someone notices, views, feels these moments speaks volumes when it comes to knowing how in tune or out of touch they are with source energy. Right now I want to bring your attention back to the little things so you can stay more aware and open to them throughout your day. It is a constant reminder to look up and watch the clouds when you've kept your eyes on the ground for so long but it is worth it because missing out on such magic would be the deepest of tragedies.

Here is a list of some of my favourite little things using your very basic but priceless five senses smell, sound, sight, touch an…
