Char: I’m a lot more laidback than Helen. Helen is very much a goal-getter, she’s ambitious and passionate. Those are the things that I absolutely adore about her and we sort of have that in common, so it’s keeping the balance between being a goal-getter and then chilling back and relaxing. Making sure we have a balance between everything we do for work, everything we do for play and making sure we rest as well.
Helen: We do. We’re proper like yin and yang I think. Char’s the calm, I’m the storm and then we kind of meet in the middle.
Char: Yeah, I call it roots and wings. I’m more grounded I guess and Helen’s more up there. She keeps going and I kind of keep her steady.
Helen: We’re big into the balance, we probably talk about it every day, how we can keep the balance in what we do. We’ve both met each other and realised that we’re exactly what we’ve always wanted and its finding that and then keeping that and I think the balance for us is key. We’re really conscious of it.
Helen: I don’t even know how that came about! I think it started as a joke and then it just evolved. It goes back to the thing where we started off as friends, then we got together and then we realised that we had passions that aligned and we wanted to work with each other, not just as a couple but as two people who enjoy doing the same sorts of things.
Char: We just wanted to bring both of our positive energy together and put some of that positivity back into the universe and we were like, how can we do this together?
Helen: Honestly, it’s not just us! We’re not just saying it ourselves, people message us like, “we love Chelen”, and it’s so weird! It’s something that started off as a joke but it just works and it’s easier to put our message across as a couple if we have something that’s both of us.
Char: The message is to love yourself first, you get what you put out into the universe and if you can be wholesome, be positive, be good, be kind. Kindness is everything to us so we’re just trying to be kind people out in the world so send that message of be kind to each other, love each other, respect each other, honour each other, humble yourself and recognise that essentially we are all one. We’re all the same so if we can do it, we believe everyone can do it.
