As you open your eyes today express gratitude… Your sight is not to be taken for granted, no more than your ability to touch, to smell, to taste, to hear. These are gifted to you; they are to be cherished.
It’s too easy to be sucked into seeing all the negativity, to allow the hatefulness of others, world issues and media news to drown out your blessings and leave you feeling as if life itself is against you.
Decide on a new view, a different perspective. Start appreciating all that is good in your life, in the world, in others. See both sides of the coin, of each conversation of life unfolding and know that the unpleasantness is a small fraction of the whole being magnified.
See that a new day has arrived and with it an opportunity to shake off the shackles, difficulties and distractions of the last one and build on all the wins. It is a time to acknowledge that life feels short when you’re wasting it, time appears fast when you’re not doing the things that truly matter to you and the realisation there is no replay, pause or rewind for regrets, indecision and procrastination.
See to it that you commit to making this day the one you utilise for creating what you dream of having in your life. Make this the day that lights the path to your destiny. And don’t expect such a day to be easy; it will take your willingness to release the best of your knowledge, talents and skills to make things happen. It will take determination, persistence and a vision.
The good news; many have done it before you, they have seen a way and made the impossible possible. In fact, there is unlimited proof that your goals can be achieved if you open your eyes to the possibilities and do what is necessary, one step and one day at a time. And enjoy the process because without a sense of fun, without that higher vibrational energy, the steps will feel like chores, you’ll miss seeing the whole picture and potentially lose faith in what you have set out to do.
Take this day and let it be your most empowered one to date…
Yes, as you open your eyes today, be thankful above all else and go about your day with a higher vision for yourself, for others and our world…

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’
