Uncomfort Zone

Argh, it’s so hard!  Life is good, it’s great actually out here in Australia, but it’s so, so hard at the same time – how is that even possible?

What’s your story?

Storytelling has been around for century’s, since cave men drew on the walls before the English language was a thing.  We all love a good story and no matter what our life’s tale, we can all relate to a story, we all have emotions in common and can all remember once upon a time.

10 Morning tricks to make your day more productive

Some mornings are awesome!  You’re awake early, get your run done in record time, no traffic on your route into the office, coffee is super hot and you’re ready to seize the day and rule the world.  Other days, not so much.

Why wait?

Ok, so we’re alive.  I’m writing this, you’re reading it, we’re thinking, breathing, drinking hot chocolate, we’re very much alive, so what are we waiting for?

Self healing

Followers of this blog will know that there’s been some big changes over the last few months.  I moaned and groaned about my job for so long on here (apologies!) that last March we decided to do something about it and applied for the Australian Visa.  Fast forward 10 months and life is great, we’re […]

Working girl

Always being a career girl, then making the decision to quit the day job back in August, I’ve really enjoyed officially setting myself up as a ‘Freelance Marketing Specialist’ (love a good title!), having done it on the side of the paid job for a long time, but now that it’s my only source of […]

New year, no limits

Moving to the other side of the world is something we always spoke of doing, something that was always on the living bucket list, that we’d wanted to do for quite some time, and 2018 saw that dream come true.  Blue sky, sandy beaches, ocean waves but also, more opportunity to live and dream.

Everything that remains

So it’s here. My last day of employment and the start of the exciting laptop-living freelance life.  But as I sit here alone at 8.30am on my last day in the office, I can’t help to think what I’m leaving behind.

Be your own Architect

There are so many life clichés – Life is short | Live for today, not for tomorrow | Live every day like it’s your last | Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today… But they are cliché for a reason, because they are true.

Suddenly I see

We all change right?  Maybe as a result of something happening in our lives, something negative or positive, something in our control or out of it, but for me, it’s ultimately an age thing.

Positives, promises and smiles

So work has been a little pants of late, no change to the status quo there, and Friday, I decided enough is enough.  I do my job, and I do it very well, but could I do more if the shackles came off and the company allowed me to work my magic and make them […]

The search for passion

You know when that one ‘spam’ email lands in your inbox, that hasn’t been caught by the filter?  The one that comes from a person’s full name which you don’t recognise and fear it’s either a stalker, or more likely, a virus?  Well that happened to me over the weekend, but the subject line connected […]

End of the world?

Reminiscing back to 2012, finding my own little piece of the internet with a brand new Facebook page, it was great to re-connect with school friends and old colleagues alike, ones I’d not seen or spoke to for quite some time.  Getting friend requests off people I could just about remember, posting up the best […]

In a heartbeat

Sitting here writing this on the plane, homeward bound, in the dark, not having the luxury of being able to sleep at 38,000 feet, I’m reflecting on my week in LA, which was pretty amazing.  Lots to see and certainly lots to do, and with the sun hitting 103F at its highest, it was more […]

Am I worthy?

So I’m sitting here, writing this, on a Virgin Atlantic flight, heading to LA, but contemplating where I’m actually going.  Currently at 38,000 feet exactly, and just over 3 hours until we land, I’ve spent most of the trip staring out of the window at the beautiful white cloudy skyline, thinking of the week ahead, […]

Work trip, guilt trip

It’s so tough being torn between the two things that mean the most to you.  Your family and your career.  Always wanting both from a young age, I guess I never did really consider how people did it, how it would work.  Not having parents doesn’t help but I guess I never really did contemplate […]

Pass the play book…

There must be one.  At this point in time, the 21st century, when cars are about to be run on batteries, the weekly shop can be done off your phone, and Marty McFly’s self-tying shoes are a thing, someone must have written the rule book on this game we call life.
