Goals for 2014

Another year has begun and a new list of goals is ready to be implemented and achieved. a review from last years goals, left me feeling excited about how many things I had achieved and how many doors I opened.

This has put me in mind to make this year an even bigger year. I came across an idea a few weeks ago to pick one word for the year. After much thought I think that my word for 2014 will be - 

This year is all about adventure for me. I am looking at all my goals and I think the underlining theme this year is about experiences and adventures. Doing new things, opening my eyes to new worlds and meeting new people.

In reflection I think my word for last year was GROWTH. Last year was full off ups and downs, with some great wins that did take their toll on me. Though overall I say I am in a better place than previous but the gains have been hard won.

Let's see how I go with achieving my goals for this year.

  • Business - I am working on a little idea around food as a possible part time business. This year I want to continue to explore this idea including taking on relevant courses.
  • Family/Relationship - Continue working on my relationship including Date Night.
  • Home - Our plan is to purchase a home together this year. One we both like in an area that suits us both. 
  • Finance - This year is about saving cash for rainy days and important future plans.
  • Health - Exercise, eating better and being happy and proud of my body.
  • Life - Bringing adventure and experiences to my year - Travel, Events, Dinners, Friends, Special Occasions and capturing these moments
Looking forward to another great year. I promise myself to spend less time on the couch and more time experiencing life. Juggling this with time for work, family, friends and myself. Because you only have one life and now looks back and remembers the days they stayed on the couch!

What is on your list??

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…
