Merry Christmas

Just a short one to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year. Like everyone else I am busy with last minute shopping, wrapping and cooking before seeing family.

Look forward to updating you after the celebrations. (Stay tuned for a recap on 2013 Goals and the setting of new ones for 2014.

Take care.

A Sad Day...

Yesterday Social Media was full of the sad news that Paul Walker, actor from my favourite movies Fast & Furious died in a car crash.

While I never knew him, as a fan it saddens me to lose someone with so much talent. My heart goes out to his family and friends. It seems so senseless.

I hope that he lived everyday to the fullest and realised how much he added to the world. From his movies to his charity work, he certainly made a difference to the world.

So to you Paul, a shining star now in heaven. Thank you for all your shared with the world.

Another Quote & Thoughts on Happiness

In searching for a topic to post about today I came across this quote and thought that we should all live by this!

It's so true. It's about being brave and taking that step even if you don't know what's next or if it will work out. But to me, that's better than staying still, living in fear, wondering what if and ultimately being unhappy.

Your wilderness may be the bush, the big city or just another suburb. But reaching out and just taking hold of your possible future is really the only option.

For me I would rather take a risk and end up poor but happy than life a stagnant, boring, safe life and end up with money but be so unhappy that I can't ever enjoy it.

Some things in life don't have a 'right' answer or a safe option if your happiness is being compromised. Sometimes life puts obstacles or new adventures in your path and you have no choice. So why not embrace the new and unknown and just go for it? Yes, at times you need to have some form of sense …

Today's Quote

Saw this quote today and it just summed up how I feel. Hope everyone is off having awesome adventures like I have.

Matching Shoes with your outfit

I have a thing for collecting images of things that catch my eye especially int eh fashion world. I thought it would be fun to match up some of my favourite current looks with some shoes I am loving. (please note that any fashion mistakes are my own)
