“Life is far too important to ever take it so seriously” – Oscar Wilde
Hello 2015 & Happy New Year to the Blogging Community.
I took a leave of abscence towards the end of last year: had a few minor set backs and like dominions everyone came to the mash up party; work, health & life!
The human mind is a powerful entity. A moment of weakness and it has the potential to effect the whole body, for as long as you allow it too.
So i got lost in December only to find myself washed up on the coastline of Vietnam, in the town of Hoi An (more information about our 7 day adventure to come,) with a very handsome fella and a brand new year at my finger tips!
We can drift away, go for short strolls, run a few marathons, get off the beaten path but the truth is we can’t steer too far from of our true destiny! I may not be 100% sure what my true destiny is just yet but I know its fab-you-lous and I am willing to keep getting back on my bicycle, pedalling one foot closer towards it.
Here’s to a smashing 2015!
Coincidence, or perhaps not, but Adultery was my vacation read!
WOW I have completely under estimated the power and monstrosity of habits!
Yes, I am a week and a day late (see number 4) with my promised post, however better late than never, right? No, not to sure I completely agree with that saying, but I can assure you that my lateness is not out of lack of concern or importance of the matter.
So please excuse me, I have been reading and….reading and….reading and under lining… and reading and writting,.. and reading and rereading and yes still reading… but I feel as though its time to share something or else I never will.
I FEEL SO OVERWHELMED!
I totally understand what listentothebebe meant when he said “this is some serious shit!” in response to my post, on The Bloggers Network, in which I shared my “Habitual Makeover” inviting people to share feedback on: engaging my audience.
No I didn’t realise how much of my every day life was consumed, or should i say controlled, by habits and I am far from discovering all i need too.
My makeover needs some more research, structure and planning; a journey in which I will be documenting in this space. I invite people to share, comment and give feedback always.
But for now here is my list as it stands today:
10 HABITS TO CONQUER IN 2015:
- Starting projects and not finishing them.
- Being distracted at work
- Being disorganised, not planning, running late
- Hitting snooze every morning
- Drinking too much coffee
- Consuming too much processed food
- Over spending, not saving
- Stressing too much
- Not having a strong belief system.
What habit/s are on your list?
Please share I would love to hear them.
Lets make our habits fab-you-lous!
” Habits are powerful, but delicate. They can emerge outside consciousness, or can be deliberately designed, they often occur without our permission, but can be reshaped by fiddling with their parts. They shape our lives far more than we realise – they are so strong, in fact, that they cause our brains to cling to them at the exclusion of all else, including common sense.” – The Power of Habit -Charles Duhigg
The atmosphere created by a new born baby is a gift.
Their innocence and purity is so rare.
Their hearts are open and accepting,
Grateful to be here and bound for success.
They know nothing of war and nothing of hate.
No jealousy, no greed, no anger.
A calmess encompasses them,
That soothes the mind.
And you cannot help but smile as you lift them into your arms.
Their eyes glistening,
There is hope, peace & serenity.
Their life, even in its beginnings, seems so fulfilled.
If only this could last forever.
Too see through their lens,
Then perhaps this world might be a more contented space.
Welcome to this world, my dear nephew Mathew, I already love you so much.
“Each person was meant to blossom into their own unique signature of greatness.
The beautiful path is not a place outside of yourself, but rather a place you carry with you everywhere you go.
Find the Magic that is in your heart.
Allow it to breath.
This is your moment. You decide.” – Adriano Di Prato,

I thank you.
I am a hopeless romantic, a sucker for a good old fashioned love story and an I love you slut!
You never know what tomorrow will bring so why live with regrets?
If you love someone don’t be afraid to let them know how you feel before its too late, worst case scenario they may not say it back, but then at least you know!
More often than none, telling someone you love them will probably make their day!
Jelly and I have one important rule to sustain a happy partnership: no matter what the day has brought or what we are dealing with, before lights out we give each other a goodnight kiss and an ” I love you.”
“If I try to use human influence strategies and tactics of how to get other people to do what I want, to work better, to be more motivated, to like me and each other – while my character is fundamentally flawed, marked by duplicity and insincerity – then, in the long run, I cannot be successful.” – Stephen R. Covey – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
