How To Be A Good Human : My Top 10

How to be a good human. Its not as easy as it sounds.

It’s interesting to see how different we all are, and how we all live our lives in different ways. It’s ok to be different – embrace it! Just remember to respect others too. Here’s a quick collaboration of some of my thoughts and lessons learnt.

10. Confidence is key. Want something but don’t have the confidence to go get it or ask for it? Why? If you don’t ask or try, you’ll never know.

9. Stay classy. Have a drink to enjoy it, not to get drunk. Don’t wear that short dress if you can’t bend over with confidence. Leave the heels in the store if you can’t walk without breaking your ankle. Step up, be a lady and become a grown-up, sexier, classier and more sophisticated version of you, pronto.

8. Don’t sweat the small stuff. We all make mistakes. Remember this, and remember to be realistic with your problems. Still got your health, a job or a place to live? You’re not doing to bad at all actually.

7. Don’t be a quitter. The only time you fail, is when you quit. Push harder than before, and never give up. Sure, shelf the dream for a while, but always have it on your mind and build your motivation up enough to have it ready to go when you’re ready and motivated.

6. Be present. Put your phone down. Listen and engage, and acknowledge people are around you and spending time with YOU. Not you, while you’re checking your Facebook. Nothing worse than having a silent and vacant brunch date with your bestie… Who’s barely even there…

5. Don’t judge. You’re not perfect either, so remember to be patient and kind. It’s actually a strength in character and people will admire and respect you for it. Lead by example and see the good in people, as you would want for them to see in you.

4. Use your manners. It’s not that hard, and people appreciate it. A simple ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ go a looooooooong way. Note boys, manners are sexy to ladies. You don’t have to always be opening the car door or pulling out our chair, but being polite is a huge plus for us. And ladies, don’t think you won’t be impressing the potential mother-in-law with your manners. She’s judging you on how ‘perfect’ you are for her ‘perfect’ son anyway, so make it count.

3. Take time for yourself. Relax, get a manicure, and a massage, take a holiday and watch countless re-runs of Sex And The City if you want. It’s all good. Just remember life is not all about everyone else. You’re allowed to look after number one on occasion.

2. Be genuine. There will be times you will struggle within yourself and your insecurities. May it be your personal inabilities, physicality’s, health, wealth, job prospects – whatever – it’s ok not to be alright. But it’s not ok not to be genuine. Remember that you are not perfect, be happy for those around you bettering themselves and genuinely celebrate their success. Wouldn’t you want them to do the same for you?

1. Treat others how you want to be treated. With respect, dignity, love and honesty. It’s a lot more simple to say it, rather than do it, but give it a go more often than not. You’ll be surprised by how others take your kindness.

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕

  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
