Cankles, candles and charisma

I am in Croatia sitting with my feet up on the candle balcony of my hotel, I think I have cankles hence why the feet are up.

I am not sure if its the heat or the sea urchin I stepped on to make my ankles swell so, but as I like to say everything happens for a reason, so if the reason was purely to stop and put my feet up, then so be it!

We are on holidays and we are tired but we are having the best time – to read more of the holiday adventures check out

So as I said we are tired, we just finished dinner and its only 9:40, some nannas passed us on the stairs as their night just begins and my husband went upstairs to get the iPad and came back without it – our tiredness is pretty clear!

I am in Hvar where the people are seriously beautiful, the weather is hot hot hot and the people are the same.

I am not in my usual training routine so it would be easy to be self conscious, to feel inadequate and insecure, yet here I am feeling tired yet amazing.

Amazing as I am on holidays, I am
sun-kissed and solar charged and as I said on my other blog if you can’t let go of inhibitions on holidays then when can you?

If traveling teaches me one thing it is that life should be filled with happiness and adventure and not filled with self doubt and regret.

We are all different it is up to us to embrace who we are and love who we are.

So as I stare at the beautiful candles and reflect on a beautiful day, I feel my cankles receding and I think about the confidence in which the people strutted their stuff today, making the not so beautiful appear beautiful and I smile.

Inner beauty really does have a way of shining through, and I smile some more.

Charisma can’t be faked it is something you just have when you believe in yourself enough to have it!
