You stand before me and tell me everything you ‘can’t’ do… but what I long to hear is what you can do, what makes your heart sing, what gives you the strength to press on.
Because whatever you think of yourself in this moment, you are still standing. That says more about you than your resistance to accept what more is possible for you.
There is a power in you that lies dormant; ready to spring into action at your command. It’s not in the chosen few, it is in everyone and it longs to be unleashed, set free.
You are more than the sum of your mistakes.
You are more than the size of your pain.
You are more than you’ll possibly ever know but wouldn’t it be a true adventure to start the journey of discovery?
As the great Nelson Mandela said:
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Be willing to acknowledge your greatness so that others may benefit from it; you have a gift to share, to help others.
You stand before me much more than your thinking allows you to be. Let your imagination run free… discover you.
Don’t be good, be great…
And stay blessed, live blissfully

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
