Motivation Monday 

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, tafe has taken up a fair amount of time! So here’s a little motivation for this week! 

Don’t let opportunity go to waste. Everyday is a new beginning, and it’s a chance to change some aspect of your existence in this world.

I’m down to the very last week of the Dual Diploma of Business and Business Administration at Tafe. I finally feel like I’ve accomplished something by sticking to my guns and getting it done. There’s nothing I can’t do if I put my mind to it and stick it out. So many times I wanted to give up, but my husband made me work through it. It’s been hard, but seeing the finish line now makes it all worth while. Who knew at the beginning of this year I was going to accomplish this much?

Don’t waste your days stuck in a repetitive cycle no matter what it is, seize the day and change it! Make it better for yourself!

Truth Saturday


It’s like everything really… Don’t hold yourself back… Get up and do what you want, what will make you happy! If it’s a dead end job, go find something that will make you enjoy it and move up to new heights. If it’s wanting a partner because you’ve been single for too long, don’t worry about that and just go have fun, you will find each other eventually… Travel the world, even if it means you go backpacking! Don’t just be in your little bubble and follow the path of people before you if it makes your soul hurt! Life isn’t about perfection, it’s not about following one path, it’s about LIVING! It’s about friends, family, exploring, having fun… All the great things that LIVING has to offer!!! If you’re getting married and everyone wants the big white wedding but you and your partner don’t want that at all…. ELOPE! Take it from a woman who did just that! Happy Saturday and weekend everyone!

Feeling Unmotivated


We all should be working toward something that will better our lives in every way! It’s been almost a month since I started the Dual Diploma, and I’m really struggling with it all. My motivation has gone out the window.

It probably doesn’t help that I’m not well. I have to think about the end goal, what I am going to get out of it. And it’s all falling into place. I just have to get my head out of the fog it’s currently in.

Exciting Times Ahead!

This week has been eventful! Tuesday I had Orientation Day at TAFE, even though my anxiety nearly ruined it for me I persisted and came good in no time. I start on my study journey next Monday, and will be finishing in June, and graduating not long after that! I’m super excited!

The husband and I are de-cluttering our home at the moment, and we’re selling things, throwing things away, donating them to charity and all that good stuff… I can’t wait until the kerbside pickup – he demolished our big old bulky desk today and made way for our small and sleek new one we picked up cheap yesterday (a little something for me starting a dual diploma)!

I feel really good about what is ahead, and I just need to keep that positivity in mind throughout the next 6 months! It feels good to just downsize, de-clutter and brighten your life!

Enjoy your Friday and your weekend wherever you are and whatever you choose to do!

Sunday Afternoon

I’ve had a bit of a hard time in my head lately. I think that the cause of the issue is that I am starting college in the next couple of weeks, and orientation for college is coming up next week (EEEK). So as much as I am excited to be going ahead with one of the life changing decisions that I made last year, the anxiety is back in full force. I know that when I get to the day and I am there in the thick of it I will be fine, I have to push myself through the anxiety and negative feelings (along with that annoying voice in my head telling me not to do it because I will fail) that come along with it. I learnt that very thing in therapy, you have to push through it and prove yourself wrong.

So, to the voice in my head, the negative feelings/thoughts and to the anxiety I have, I am going to prove you wrong! This also goes out to the people who thought I would fail, will fail, or am failing…

And to all of you who are going through a similar situation, where people try to make you fail for whatever reason, or if it’s the negative voices in your head telling you you’re a failure, PROVE THEM WRONG! Don’t let something hold you back, all you can do is try!

 

Hope you all are having a fab weekend!

New Years Eve, A Personal Reflection


2016… A year that I and many of you will be glad to see gone from existence!

For me, as there has been in other years, many ups and downs. Although 2016 would have to be the biggest emotional roller coaster of a year I have experienced in my whole life. I learned a lot this year. I learned through therapy how I can manage my mental illness without the use of medication, I learned what family really meant when trying times were upon us, I learned that life was really too short to be stuck in a never ending negative cycle and in order to change I had to take a leap of faith with hope I’ll safely land on my feet with my wonderful amazing husband by my side, I even learned that you can never change a person – you can only change yourself.

I have given myself a new purpose for 2017, and I am excited to see what’s ahead. I have my husband, we will celebrate 10 years together and our first wedding anniversary, I have the family that mean everything to me, and I have my friends. So long as that doesn’t change, everything else will be a breeze! I don’t have any resolutions for the new year, not this time anyway, so it will be a just wing it kind of year and see what good things come of it!

Happy New Year everyone!!! May 2017 be a safe, fun and adventurous year!!!
