This blog post is one that is SUPER different to all the other ones I have ever posted, but something that, for some unknown reason, I feel compelled to write. So here it is, a post inspired by the above photo, recent developments I've made in my life, conversations with friends, and books that… Continue reading Let’s be real…
Last Saturday I escaped the rush of life and just sat by the beach. Alone. Watching. Thinking. I watched the waves come in and go out, pushing the water around. Sometimes all you could hear would be the thrashing of the waves against each other. Sometimes though, I was able to hear silence. There was… Continue reading Ride the waves
Following on from my previous 'simple' post comes one that is so close to my heart at the moment. The one word that has been on my mind and on my lips this past week is content. For the majority of my life I have wanted more. I have always had a list of what… Continue reading Content (adj.)

Dear Mother/Mum/Mom, As a child I adored you. You taught me to speak, talk, smile, and walk.

You walked us… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Mother.

This week marks the annual Mental Health week in Australia. For the past 10 years my Mental Health has become a big factor in my transition between childhood to adulthood. It's something I become very passionate about as I have seen the side effects of not taking care of one's mental health. So, when asked… Continue reading It’s time to celebrate Mental Health
Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and R U Ok? Day. One of the best ways to prevent and minimise suicide is to create connections and conversations checking in with people around you. R U Ok Day encourages each of us to take the time to start the conversation and ask the people around us… Continue reading Let’s start the conversation
Four years ago I was in the middle of deciding my future while in the middle of completing grade 12. I had it mapped out that I would take a gap year and then complete my double business degree at the University of Queensland (UQ). I was convinced that I should have Griffith's double degree… Continue reading Why study at Griffith?
