If the way you spoke to yourself over the past week were the way you spoke to your friend for a week, would that friendship still remain? The question above always gives me a massive kick in the gut. I … Continue reading You want me to… love myself?!
I could have written this post over a million times, and I still would never be completely satisfied that my words really conveyed my feelings on this topic. The topic of the same-sex marriage plebiscite isn’t just as simple as the Yes/No we are asked to respond to – there are layers, rebuttals, and valid points wherever you look. I have sat on the fence quietly whilst the storm of debates has taken over social media and Australia. I’ve watched and listened to people on both sides of the conversation.

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 I have read.

I lie here with my clean loads of laundry … Continue reading Let’s be real…

Then I realised, life is just like riding the waves. Say that you are out in the waves and one minute you are there floating around (or standing, depending on how tall you are) and enjoying the serenity of … Continue reading Ride the waves
I had the assumption that the first blog post that I wrote in a year had to be one that packed a punch, that stirred hearts, and made every reader automatically press the ‘like’ button. In the end, this made the days turn into months between writing a post. So here this post is. A post about being raw, authentic, brave, concise, and most importantly, simple. For what I have learnt in the past year is to be content in the small and basic things of life. I love splashing around in puddles or saying ‘wow’ when I drive towards … Continue reading I made a pizza today
