It's Never Too Late

I have had many posts running through my head all month and can't seem to focus long enough to get any of them out and onto the screen. And today I read a blog post by LittleGreyBox on chasing your dreams and it just clicked with me. There is no deadline and no real life threatening issues that are holding me back from doing the things i really want. 

Take this blog for example - There is nothing that says I have to post every day or every week to make this a success. While in my head I know that at least semi regular posts will keep you interested, the truth is that it is my self imposed 'rules' that are making me agitated and anxious. I do lie awake and stress about my lack of posts. I have little notes around my desk on post ideas and a draft post schedule just waiting for me to commit too. So today I realised it's ok. While it would make sense to keep my posts regular and on a particular theme its ok if they aren't. It's my blog, my voice and my own way of being creative and there are no rules. Success does not have to be a million followers (though this would be nice). It can just be that I have the courage to put my thoughts out there whether anyone cares or reads them. 

Another great blogger Haleigh from Making Magique has shared some wonderful thoughts and posts on balancing life expectations and the need to take a leap and do what you truly believe is your calling. Haleigh shares so much wisdom of the struggles to do what you feel is right versus the burning desire to forge your own path. 

Each of these lovely girls has had one clear message that rang true with me today - your life is your own and your dreams will not materialise if you sit back and do nothing about them. A wonderful reminder of why I started this blog in the first place. To remember that we only have one life and you need to live it in whatever way makes sense to you. Be wholly and truly you.

So here is to 2015! Last year I chose a word for the year and declared 2014 the year for Adventure. I have been thinking about this year and I feel that Freedom is what sums up my thinking and dreams. Freedom from my self imposed rules and from what is expected of me. Freedom to be me.

So stay tuned while I get to the posts I have in my head. I am looking forward to reviewing last years goals and seeing how many I achieved and sharing with you the goals I have set for this year. Alongside these are some surprising plans that are coming together with my man.  Things I didn't know were important or a possibility are making themselves felt and heard. I can't wait to share these things as the develop.

So here's to an amazing 2015. Where we grow and achieve in our own way, at our own pace and to our own set of rules and yardsticks. Free from judgement.

On another note, it has been a busy few weeks. With me taking the plunge and leaving my job (yes my new job) and some surprising cash and fulfilment coming from baking. Set this alongside some deep life planning, interviews and family time, it has a little been busy. Never fear, I will report it all over the coming weeks as I find the time and energy to share these thoughts. 

Freedom. (I like the sound of it.)

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…
