Help me… my crowd funding campaign

You know when you put something out to the world that your unsure how it will be received?

This is how I feel!

Nervous. Excited. Apprehensive.

I just launched my crowd funding campaign….

#charliesballs need a new home.

Love Balls front

Check it out:

What is crowd funding???

Well, basically, a crowd (read, you) participate in actively pre purchasing an item (my #balls) before they are available. In my case, you are pre – buying my new and improved packaging. So when a group collectively purchase something I can reach a target and move my business forward.

Its time for me to start working smarter. Not harder.

Currently I sticker 1 ball…3 times!

Plus, I would like a longer shelf life so I can proceed with distribution and be able to offer my #balls in more places, so you know you can always reach for something healthy (and my love).

I would love, LOVE your support. Together we can make a change.

And really, all your doing is pre-buying my new product {nothing gets charged until the end of the campaign and only IF its successful}

Theres different levels of support if you just check out the right hand side, you can even get a ‘love note’ from me to you, or buy several giftpacks to give out to people, and show them you truly care.

Testimonial:

‘I just wanted to let you know how much your program has changed my life. My body is thanking me and I feel wonderful physically and emotionally. I am regularly taking time out to love myself and look after myself. Meditation has become part of my daily life as well. You inspire me to be the best I can and in turn hopefully inspire others to live a healthy, happy life. I have never felt good about myself before but now am happy in the skin I’m in! I’m certainly not perfect but I feel content with who I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for changing my life when it felt everything had fallen to pieces. I am so happy right now. Sending love your way xxxx. Your love and light inspires me to follow my dreams and never let people bring me down again. My journey started from a dark place but I feel that I am now bathing and basking in the light at the end of my tunnel xxxxxx thank you xxxxxxxxxx’ Kim.

‘When I stumbled across your blog  your words resonated in my head. The idea of participating in your Wellness Project appealed at a time when I was looking for ‘something’, but wasn’t sure what.
Last year was such a successful year for me health and fitness wise – I lost a lot of weight, and my fitness was soaring…..and then came my ‘annus horribilus’.
But all that changed when I began your Project. My faith in myself was restored and I am well away on my life’s journey.
I have learnt many things from this experience, some practical, but more about myself and my worth. It has been such a positive experience and one that I would recommend to anyone. I have had my enthusiasm for training return and I am excited to see how this will change me.
I will continue with the tips you offered, my general sense of well being is excellent and I attribute that to the vitamins, chlorophyll and the clean eating. And the water, I really need to work on that!!
But mostly, it’s all in the state of mind. I will never again under estimate the power of positive thinking

Thankyou Charlie, from the bottom of my heart’. Cheryl Hastings

‘I have tried many a “diet” and have exercised like a gym junkie yet I constantly find myself wallowing in self pity and fluctuating with my weight. I know that if I look good I feel good and that means so much more than trying to eat well and exercise. Taking part in this program forced me to go beyond the normal dieting yo-yos and look within myself for something more. I have found that I can give myself more by paying attention to not just my own body, but my mind and soul. I now believe that the mind can achieve anything and have finally realised that I need to put as much effort into myself as I put into building up others. I love some of the new habits that you introduced to me and am keeping up with my morning exercise, teas, dry body brushing and healthy eating recommendations. Thanks for showing me that being healthy means looking after our minds first! The rest will follow!’ Stephanie de Masi

For a little Friday love…Desiderata, words for life…
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Do something…Different

My favourite day of the week, the day I get to ask myself; what can I do today that will make you happy’?

This weekend I decided I wanted to do something different, to get my creative on and build something. I had been wanting a herb garden for a while, just hadn’t decided how exactly I wanted to do it (apartment living = limited space).

sb3

So I decided I would use stacked wooden cubes to create an aesthetically pleasing garden utilising the corner space I had allocated.

So, to begin my building adventure, I headed to Bunnings, dressed in high heals and exuding enthusiasm. I was ready to take on this DIY.

sb1

Shopping list:

Herbs, succulents, Lavender (I am in love with the powerful calming effects Lavender has on the nervous system).

Wood; anything Rustic looking.

A Hammer, some nails.

Simple.

So, I started with the pots, chose the ones I liked and I thought would ‘match’, this was fine, no help required. Next stop; outdoors. Aimlessly strolling through the aisles, really just trying to decide what would look pretty and was low maintenance. Help required. A kind young man must have seen the ‘not quite sure what I am doing’ expression on my face and decided to assist me. Together we chose succulents that would fit into the pots Id chosen, Kale, and some herbs. Not to difficult.

(I chose lavender as I often struggle to sleep, Lavender is brilliant to calm and relax and I intend to cut a flower each night for my pillow).

Next stop. Timber.

Have you been into the Timber section of these stores??? By now I was starting to realise the task I had thought was simple, wasn’t so.

So, as I was wandering around the timber section, trying to look for anything that had a rustic look whilst using the trolley to lean on (these store are also HUGE, and I would highly recommend flat shoes), thankfully a man appeared and listened to my excited description of what I was hoping to build. Not quite sure what was going through his mind as I naively explained the wooden cubes/hammer & nails scenario, but I’m quite sure he was trying to hold back a smile. After a (masterpiece) 3D drawing, he got it and decided to use treated Pine; perfect. Next, we chose the sizes, he even kindly cut them (and for a price of $1.50, being nice is ALWAYS effective, everywhere).

He then proceeded to tell me I couldn’t ‘just’ nail them together (this was disappointing as I was going to trial the hammer/hitting as a stress relief technique), instead I would have to drill them with a cordless drill, I asked why not with a cord and he said it would just get in my way, and that I would also need to drill pilot holes before drilling the screws in.

My simple building adventure had just become…not so simple.

So, with my trolley laden with pots, plants, chopped wood, I headed to the Tools section and purchased my very first cordless drill.

I was excited and ready!

 

sb5So, first things first, I wanted to tackle what I thought would be the most difficult (and it proved it was) the wooden cubes.

Now, I haven’t owned a cordless drill before and the last time I used one was probably in high school, so I started charging the battery, reading the directions, and…

Well…its really quite funny, for about 10 minutes I was sitting re reading the page on how to open the ‘chuck’ (for anyone that doesn’t know that’s the part at the top that opens and closes so you can use different size screws).

This chuck just wasn’t opening. I was half laughing at myself, half frazzled, I had thought I would get further then just turning the drill on before getting frustrated. But it just wasn’t happening. So… back to Bunnings; turns out it was a faulty drill (of course my luck).

Back home, take 2. Started drilling, got a few done and then the drill starts to slowwwwllllllyyyy run out of battery. (GRR). Charge. Start again. And repeat x 6. (I replanted my plants and herbs during this time).

So the frames were built,. but I discovered that the lovely guy that helped me, hadn’t cut the inside ‘support’ blocks smaller as I had requested. Back to bunnings.

sb7

So 3 trips to bunnings, a beautiful Saturday and some Reggae tunes…my DIY project was complete. And wow. Yes, I was proud, my idea had worked! And it was perfect! The wood cost me approximately $23, my time was invested and I had completed my very first building project ON MY OWN. (The small frustrations were definitely worth the sense of accomplishment).

Todays Self Love advice; do something different, think outside your square…what is it that you would like to do but never thought you could? Why not give it a go. Because, believe me, you CAN do it. Anything.

Now, as for me…Ill be contemplating what else I can put my new found building skills to whilst I get some High Intensity Sprints done pre Yoga.

It is a beautiful day, a beautiful life; live it.

Love and light, Charlie x.
