THE WELLNESS SERIES: the new goals

THE WELLNESS SERIES: the new goals

A few weeks ago, I woke up completely obsessed with idea of reaching some new health and fitness goals.  (Yes, that’s truly how it happened.  I assume I had a dream about it but we’ll never know for sure!)

JOURNAL: chaos

JOURNAL: chaos

Well, my week started off really well.  I woke up just before my 5am alarm on Sunday morning, did some journalling, got myself ready and headed out for my 6k walk.  I listened to my audiobook (Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod) and then spent some time walking in silence reciting my affirmations.  Continue reading “JOURNAL: chaos”

JOURNAL: drapetomania

JOURNAL: drapetomania

Those who follow me on Instagram often comment how on-the-go my life is. Truth is, I have to live my life that way. If I stay still for too long, I start to feel stale and lose who I am a little.  It had been a few weeks since I’d been out of town and I was getting too in my head for my own (and probably my friends’) liking. So. To refresh and recharge, Bella and I started the week with a little road trip to Bowral – a small country town a couple of hours away from the city I live in.

JOURNAL: dance for me

JOURNAL: dance for me

Once upon a time, I used to do monthly journals and for whatever reason, I stopped.  As always, my blog and social media evolves with me and my life and now I’ve decided I’m going to kick off my journals again – this time with weekly journals to see if there’s value for you in that.  I’d love to see whether you enjoy these so please leave a like or a comment below so I can gauge whether or not to continue.  If there’s anything I’ve gotten up to or incorporated in my life that you want to hear more about, please let me know that too.  xx

LITTLE BLACK BOOK: where it all began

LITTLE BLACK BOOK: where it all began

This is it.  This is the story that inspired this entire series.  It’s a story full of clichés and Hollywood-type moments but has a very un-Hollywood-type ending (spoiler alert: the guy does not get the girl).

A NEW SERIES: little black book

A NEW SERIES: little black book

So here we go, the introduction to what will hopefully become a long series of posts documenting some of my favourite types of stories – dating disasters.  This is a series I’ve been thinking about for a long time but I didn’t want to jump into it without giving it some serious thought.  Stories like these deserve time and care to ensure accurate depiction of the disasters they really were.

CONFESSIONS: what life is like with PMDD

CONFESSIONS: what life is like with PMDD

Well once again it’s been a while since my last blog post.  To be honest, I’ve been enjoying not putting the additional pressure on myself to pump a post out frequently however, I’ve felt compelled to write on this topic.  The more I’ve been sharing my journey with Pre-Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and what it’s put me through over the past year and a bit, the more I realise how prominent it is amongst women.

I’ve written some pretty emotional posts over the years but this will be the worst for me.  I’ve barely begun writing and as I bring up memories of the girl who suffered for 15 of the longest and loneliest months of her life, I sob.  I feel so sorry for her and what she felt she had to go through alone and to be honest, at this point, I just hope I don’t short-circuit my keyboard with these tears.
