No one said that life would be easy, that everything would flow in perfect symmetry and without any cause for concern. Yet people frequently seem dumbfounded when things go wrong and when life throws challenges at them. And yes, those moments can be devastating; they can stop you in your tracks, slow you down, creating layers of limiting beliefs and uncertainty. Yet I encourage you to see beyond the immediate moment, knowing with certainty, that it is only a moment in time, not time itself; it too shall pass… And tomorrow you will be stronger.
Today you may feel heavy with burdens, uncertain of your options, blinded by the pain of the challenges you face. It’s not only the mental strain, it can take a toll on you physically and emotionally too and that’s not an easy place to operate from; attempting to maintain some sense of normality whilst internally battling the waves of despair & fear and externally managing the utter exhaustion you feel.
But know this… You have more strength within you than you have witnessed to date. You are more powerful than previous experiences have demanded.
You see, every challenge you ever faced has prepared you for this one. They have built-in you the physical strength to carry more weighted issues than you can imagine. They have cemented together to create a firm foundation from which you can tackle new issues. It’s important to acknowledge this as it reminds you no challenge is without its solution.
And spiritually, your past difficulties, the ones you never believed you’d get past, through and over, even with the scars remaining from them, have given you the ability to bear more than ever before. They have taught you how to manage your emotions in more productive ways. The load may be heavy, but you have the spiritual strength to persevere.
So, know with certainty that whatever you are facing today, you have the inner resources to see it through. With the right support, encouragement and belief you can break free.
With determination and a firm decision not to give in to the challenge, you can survive and thrive knowing tomorrow you will be stronger…
Constantly growing, constantly evolving, constantly unlocking more of your potential.
Footnote: If you want to purposefully build your overall strength, start from the inside out with the healthy body, healthy mind approach. The more effort you put into your mental and physical wellbeing, the better you will manage life’s challenges. You can find out more about the services I offer in this area at www.yvonnebltd.com

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’
