"Don’t give up, don’t get discouraged. Take each day 1 step at a time. Just try to be in a better place mentally, emotionally and spiritually than you were yesterday."
Yazmin added: "I’ve come back to my second home after what I’ve been through and tried to centre myself.
"When those days hit me where I feel like giving up, I practice gratitude and give thanks to even the smallest of things and it really does help. Love Yaz."
Yazmin could be seen sitting by a swimming pool while wearing a bikini and reading a book focusing on Karma, the force generated by a person's actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism.
