My thoughts about life, love and everything in between

My New Years Resolutions

My New Years Resolutions

I was talking last week with some colleagues about new years resolutions. I tried remembering my ones from last year… I’d forgotten them. Long ago… because obviously I didn’t take them very seriously. I jump on the bandwagon each year because I think it’s fun making wishes. Right now I’m watching a Tony Robbins video on YouTube about new years resolutions – he said 95% of people who make resolutions break them by January 15th. The 15th! Yikes, that’s pretty…

Who Inspires me?

Who Inspires me?

Day 3 of the Trigger Your Blog challenge is ‘Who Inspires Me?’ Hmm… Very good question! My mind automatically jumped to the amazing travel bloggers I read – World of Wanderlust, Adventurous Kate, Nomadic Matt to name a few. But when I thought about it a little more I realised, yes those people are amazing and what they’ve done is incredible but the ones who really inspire me are the one’s a little closer to home, the one’s who were…

Something you might not know about me

Something you might not know about me

I used to be very shy. As a kid, as a teenager, right up until probably about 4-5 years ago when I truly started to learn to like myself. Now I love myself! This is Day 2 of a 7-day blog challenge I’m doing called ‘Trigger Your Blog’. Inspiring us to share more about ourselves, to give us ideas if we are stuck, basically to get our a’s into g! I’m loving it so far, but today’s prompt could be…

My intention for this blog

My intention for this blog

My intention for this blog was to challenge myself. To see if I could try something that I’d been wanting to partake in for so long. I wanted to share something with the world. Something that I’d been putting off because I didn’t feel I was interesting enough, or good enough to even step onto the field that others had been playing on and mastered for years already. But I had to put that fear aside. I HAD to FORGET…

Book Review – Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Book Review – Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Read. This. Book. Seriously, read this book. You will not regret it and it is most definitely worth your time. Outliers is one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a long time. I couldn’t put it down. It was refreshing to read something so different to what I usually read (self-help, motivation and novels hello!) From Bill Gates to rice farmers, Canadian ice hockey players to Korean pilots, you will find these topics fascinating by the end of…

Behind the highlights: When shit goes wrong

Behind the highlights: When shit goes wrong

Endless adventures and travels, engagements and weddings, houses bought, babies born, ‘oh my god their life is so happy and perfect!’ Often when we see someone’s Instagram or Facebook, we can be forgiven for being a little envious of their seemingly perfect lives. We don’t often see behind the scenes, when things aren’t so peachy. Of course things go wrong, every now and then, for all of us. If we don’t have an actual conversation with someone we don’t know…

My 10,000 hours starts now

My 10,000 hours starts now

The concept of 10,000 hours resonated with me mainly because I’m starting my blog and I want to be good at it, but also because I turned 30 this year. As a friend who also turned 30 (hi Sarah!) was saying recently, we’ve still got 35 years of working life in front of us before we can retire. So we might as well do something we want to do. Not just waste our time fart-arsing around forever. I’ve also reached…
