Where does the weekend go? It seems that Sunday night rolls around very quickly no matter what I am up too. I wonder how i get one of those jobs where you work 3 or 4 days and have 3 or 4 off to live life? (And still have enough money to experience life!)

Talking of experiencing life - I came across one of my favourite quotes again today. It goes a little something like this - "I don't want to just exist, I want to live." (Author unknown, to me)

This to me is about experiencing life and getting out there and doing things rather than just cruising along and letting life's opportunities pass you by. To me, this is the true essence of me and how I feel. I want to LIVE. I want experiences, passion, highs and lows. Life is for living not just existing. 

So in the spirit of living, I have added to my Goals list as part of my Happiness Project this weekend. Number 6. on my list -  12 new experiences.

I've started my list of some of the experiences I want to have.

  1. Ride and elephant - preferably in some tropical setting. Thailand rather than Africa but I am open to this one however it happens.
  2. Visit the snow - Yes I am 33 and never been to the snow
  3. See a fashion show
  4. Helicopter ride
  5. Degustation dinner - 12 courses with matching wine
  6. Cooking class - something fabulous 
  7. Diving - snorkelling or diving or something in clear blue waters
  8. Rock climbing - Indoor or out. I'm open to the possibilities

That's so far anyway. Gotta start somewhere and I think these are a good start for now. I feel like there are so many amazing things out there to do and narrowing it down is rather hard.

One of my two favourite authors - Lewis Carroll & the other being Dr Seuss

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
