Anything can happen. I always say this.
It's my thing.
A dear friend just reminded me of this from the other side of the world.
Sometimes I say it with ease and joy and fun, but sometimes it's a declaration from a place of deep pain, a declaration requiring everything in me but FULL of faith, trusting my God CAN and WILL do what he promised.
God whispered these 3 words to me 4 years ago when I was in a dark season, and as a result of believing them and expecting surprises, I've had the most incredible time of travelling, writing, creating... But when seasons change and shift out of nowhere, it doesn't make sense and it's so unsettling.
It feels like everything is stuck and something's wrong and I question myself, 'ummmm, am I actually going crazy?!' BUT.
I know my God and I know how he works.
And there are always GREAT surprises on the other side of this faith declaration.
In ONE moment anything can happen.
In ONE moment things can change.
Declaring it for all of us today. Xoxo

This girl. It’s her birthday today and I’m so proud of her. 🎈@mckillopkatie
Kass you are one in a mill.
So brave. Always hoping.
Always trusting. Always encouraging.
You’re such a wonderful mummy, wife, daughter, sister and precious friend.
How did I get so lucky to have a sister like you? 👯‍♀️ Honestly you are more amazing than you know. Yep.
You’re fierce and loyal and you fight for those you love.
Look how far you’ve come! You inspire me so flipping much, studying and chasing your dreams.
Happy birthday beautiful bestie. 💕
I love you to the moon and back. Natty xoxo
(Ps: I really need to print those Boston and NYC photos from 2004!!!)

Gosh. For 12 years I ran at a crazy pace doing things only to perform and for affirmation, because I placed others’ opinions above my own voice.
A year ago things began bubbling up. So I began the journey of digging into my pain and more recently, with the help of a psychologist, analyzing my thought patterns and rewiring my brain.
This is a flipping massive journey and I know there will be a book from it.
Processing pain hurts, it takes a LOT of energy, and is no joke. (It’s the bravest thing we can do, so if you’re doing this too, I take my hat off to you.)
So for now my focus is being kind to myself as I process.
And trying new fun things. :)
Lots of them.
Like ballet. 💃🏼
And this. 🖋 Object writing.
That’s a bit fun isn’t it? :)
Haven’t written in seven months.
But I just picked something in my living room, set my timer and wrote for ten minutes about it.
Today’s subject was NYC. (Of course 😍)
He makes ALL things new 🦋
Keep going don’t give up :) nat xo

My beautiful friend sent me this. So true ➳ ➳ ➳ #keepgoing #keepaiming
Whatever you are facing and wherever you find yourself, celebrate something.
Anything.
Celebrate friends, family, a phone conversation, an extra long hug, a personal joke, a knowing glance by someone who loves you.
Celebrate how you were brave this week, for choosing to love when it was flipping hard, and for not giving up today.
When we are slow and generous to thank, we SEE.
And boy, there is so much to see, and be thankful for.
Studies say thankfulness actually releases dopamine, which makes us feel good. #yepthatsright 👌🏻
Man. Even as I am writing these words my heart and mind are feeling more at ease. #hellodopamine
The worry from earlier is subsiding.
.
So, reflecting on forty, I’m really thankful for my LIFE. 🦋
Yep.
And so, being a massive celebrator of ALL events (big or tiny) to celebrate this puppy (#40), I took a drive down the Great Ocean Road with these chickie babes. 🐥
CELEBRATE (v.) = “to acknowledge (a significant or happy day or event) with a social gathering or enjoyable activity.” ✨🥂
.
So go for it, celebrate this week. Be kind to yourself. What will you do?
.
I picked The Great Ocean Road.
Oh Wye River.
What a place.
What a dream spot to chill and celebrate LIFE, bravery, strength ⚔️ and a flipping beautiful milestone 🌿🌊🐨🌴 Thank you girls for spoiling me. xo

FORTY ✨It’s my birthday!! It’s funny, every single one of my friends told me something happens when you turn forty.
And now I know what it is.
It’s like a switch has been flicked and I can feel it. If you’re there already you’ll know what I mean, and if you’re not yet you’ll know when you get there. :)
.
I’m thankful for everything I’ve learnt this decade, I’ve been through the fire and I’m slowly coming out the other side.
I’m fierce and brave and I’m so proud of who I have become.
So unbelievably thankful for beautiful friends and family. Here’s to a brand new decade. Happy birthday to meeeeee!!! ✨✨✨ xoxo

Sometimes showing up, being brave, taking ownership of your life, dealing with past traumas, focusing on growing, having hard conversations, and discovering truth feels like the stupidest mistake EVER, like running into the deepest most craziest ocean.
.
BUT, actually it’s the bravest and most beautiful thing you can do for yourself. 💕🌸 And like the ocean, when you know it’s safe, diving headfirst into the waves and getting your hair wet and all crazy looking and swimming when you can’t touch the ground, it’s actually one of the most freeing things you’ll ever do.
.
If you’re like me and you’re on this journey, I salute you. 💙⚔️
Nat xoxo
Thanks for the pic @colettewerden 😘

In about 5 hours, in South Africa, my beautiful NYC sister Whitney is marrying her prince, Christo. 👰🏻
In this pic we are on the rooftop of the Hudson Hotel in New York City last September, celebrating her engagement. ✨
