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 and reality. (we can't just go buy a $1.5mil house if we can't get a loan or pay it back) But why not take on a $500k loan and live in place that feels like home. Who cares if you eat pasta for the first 12 months while you figure out how to pay it off? You are living the dream, you're together and you can make it work. 

You never really know things about yourself until you are out of your comfort zone. But if putting yourself out there helps you achieve a dream then its worthy he risk. Why live a life full of regrets, wishes or dreams if you are just too scared to try? Seriously what's the worst that can happen?

There is always a way to make it work. If you have your health, family and friends then you can make anything work. 

I say life is too short to be unhappy. Embrace life's challenges, aim high, leap with some part of plan and just give it a try!!!! You don't need a whole plan, just some common sense and a drive to make it work. What is the worst that cane happen?

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…
