There is Sunshine in My Soul Today

I’m sure you’re all wondering how this year has escaped so quickly, too.

I was at dinner with my boyfriend last night, reminiscing about the past few months and how wonderful they have been.

Days spent holding hands, a life-changing trip to East Africa and nights out on the town showcasing our talent on the dance floor.

What’s even more exciting is that the best is yet to come.

Sunshine, sangria and summer barbecues, my birthday and Christmas! After 12 weeks of intense training, Joel will be graduating as a fireman! My best friend Meighan is getting married to the man of her dreams and in November I’ll be meeting my new cousin Jack for the first time.

And…

I’ve finally signed up for a 6-week bridal make-up course which I’m really excited about. Since making my public pledge a few month’s ago I’ve joined an 8-week boot camp – my final ‘hurrah’ before the festive season takes off.

And last but not least…

I got an internship as a travel writer with an online company called Escape Lounge! Check them out here.

My life is so full of wonderful, delicious happiness!

Magic Pills

This morning I managed to surface before six and go for a run along Warriewood headland thanks to these new magic pills I discovered. They give you instant energy and the ability to shed excess weight in less than a day!

I’m kidding. I hope you didn’t get excited. Surely by now you know they don’t exist.

Like every other human I didn’t want to get out of bed. I felt like I had only just closed my eyes when my alarm went off and I had a million other reasons why I deserved to stay in bed.

But, I made a promise yesterday that I intend to keep. And I love this view…

My Public Pledge

So this year hasn’t quite gone according to plan.

Throughout January I was determined that I would, after seven years, finally stop biting my nails, lose weight, establish an exciting career and find my Perfect Match. It’s now September.

I have however ticked one thing off my list.  In May I met Joel (A.K.A the most amazing man in the whole wide world – sorry ladies).

The rest unfortunately, are yet to be crossed off.  And since this year is almost over, I figure it’s now or never.

I made a commitment to myself this year to go after exactly what I want in life. This is my public pledge to do just that.

Hello, Monday

Have you ever noticed how many people hate Monday?

I’m usually one of them.

But today is different.

Because today I realised that being grumpy is really unproductive and really unattractive. So instead I’m trying something new – I’m experimenting with the power of positive thinking in the hope of finding a new career.

One that will make Monday’s an absolute pleasure.

I’ll keep you posted.
