I’m just going through my change curve

Posted by Britenay on September 21, 2018
There has been an obvious theme about my week this week – CHANGE. You know, they say change is the only constant. There’s no denying that this is absolutely true. Especially in my world this week. Change has been non-stop. I’ve had good news, bad news, average news, upsetting news. So much to take in, in such a small space of time. One of the perks of being in a team in the HR (Human

But Wasn’t She Dating That Other Guy?

What fasting has taught me

Posted by Britenay on September 14, 2018
It’s amazing what you begin to notice when you become more mindful and aware. Last week, I wrote about my journey of weight loss and mentioned my current plan to kick the kilos goodbye through intermittent fasting. Not eating is something that’s a challenge for me. Particularly being an avid breakfast eater, so adjusting to the 16/8 (fast 16hours, eat for 8hours) was always going to be a struggle. I started a good few weeks

It’s time to make a change

Posted by Britenay on September 7, 2018
It’s time to unzip those trousers and let it all out! I’ve been struggling with my weight for years. There’s been times when I’ve looked at my best, and times when I’ve looked my worst. And with cameras at practically every wrestling event, I have to get over it and get on with it all the time. It’s rough. I get into the ring and try to forget all about it. I try not to

Meet The Wildes

Posted by Jenn W on September 3, 2018
We’ve all heard time and again how adults (especially ones in their thirties) need to stop travelling, settle down and get married. Ben and I weren’t sure that we bought into those ideas- I mean, getting married was definitely for us… but settling down might never be. SoOo we’re going to try marriage with less of the ‘settling down’ part… Meet the Wildes My name is Jennifer Rose (or Jenn/ Jenny or Jenna depending on

Life on Death Row

Posted by Britenay on August 31, 2018
So, I’ve been reading this book lately titled, “On Death Row” by Mike James. It’s an unusual book to pick up, I’ll admit that. I grabbed it while at a local market in my hometown, Hamilton one morning. There was an awesome selection from this person’s own collection and I thought, why not?! It will be interesting to read from the perspectives of people actually on death row. And thus, I started reading. It starts

Happy Anniversary!

You have no idea what your legacy will be…. “Your legacy is every life that you’ve touched”. There are so many powerful quotes in this speech from Oprah. If you haven’t watched the above video yet, I urge you to. I’ve watched it many times and every time, I come away feeling more inspired than before. In hearing the above quote from Maya Angelou in a conversation she had with Oprah, I couldn’t help but

Please welcome, Jenn!

I first met Jenn when I became her Team Leader a while back and my first impression was, “how the hell am I going to be a leader to this wild, independent, strong and determined chick!? She’s so damn cool! As I got to know her more and learned about her life, her travels and her passions, I found myself fascinated and inspired. Unlike myself, she’s a free spirit. Willing and able to pick up

What are you going to do about it?

Posted by Britenay on August 10, 2018
Getting to truly know yourself is so incredibly valuable and empowering. There’s knowing yourself, what you like and dislike, where you want to go in life and the goals you want to achieve. But, then there’s really getting to know yourself. As in, on a deeper level, what drives you, what makes you tick, why do you react how you do, what’s really your motivation for doing what you doing and being who you are.

What’s a little understanding?

Posted by Britenay on August 3, 2018
We live in our own realities. We all wish we could make everyone see things from our own perspective, but the simple truth is that every single person is unique with their own life experiences. As a result, we see things differently to each other. Two people can be watching the same thing and take different meaning from it. I find it fascinating observing other people, listening to what they believe to be right. I
