I LOVE as you go through different stages in your life you are drawn to different types of ACTIVE  journeys and adventures. Sometimes you need to step back a little and other times you have the opportunity to go full steam ahead.

Full disclosure this week in #ifoundfridays I have my mum talking about her current ACTIVE. She has definitely been a great role model for me as I have always known her to be doing something. I have seen her go from running to netball to golf to hiking to gym workouts to Pilates.

Each stage of her life different types of ACTIVE pursuits has bought her different joys and achievements and currently, that is Pilates for her.
