Thank you to my marvellous mentors for inspiring and encouraging me to write, workout and focus on abundance this year.
I’m Feeling 2022!
“I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22. Everything will be alright if, you keep me next to you. You don’t know about me but I’ll bet you want to. Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we’re 22!” Taylor Swift “22” Yay for a new year. A chance to start… Continue reading I’m Feeling 2022!
Silver Linings Playbook
If you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining. Pat, Silver Linings Playbook In a year of lockdowns and lounge rooms, can you find the silver linings as we move into 2022? For me, I’ve realised there’s joy in appreciating ALL the SMALL things and Keeping It Simple Sexy (no negative self-talk… Continue reading Silver Linings Playbook
Harness in the good energy
“You gotta rise above it. You gotta harness in the good energy, block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad”.
Steady As She Goes
James Clear’s excellent book, “Atomic Habits”, introduced me to the idea of habit stacking. Where you stack an additional habit onto an already established one e.g. adding calf raises to your toothbrushing regime, doing stretches as your coffee brews or meditating after hitting the snooze button. Likewise, I’ve been trying to make some slow and steady improvements to my routine.

In days of peace the soldier performs maneuvers, throws up earthworks with no enemy in sight, and wearies himself… Continue reading Stoically
Guess who’s back?
I’m baaackk! Have missed you guyZ and bloggY. Since I’ve been gone-bloggY turned 4 and Melbournians turned 164 due to Stage 4 restrictions. I’ve decided to post whenever/wherever I’m inspired to so do (sign up to email list below for a heads up). The survey results (link to take it below if you’re yet to) showed a pretty even split between the topics you enjoy reading on WFM; Money, Sobriety/ Health, Recommendations (books, movies etc), Self-help stuff (law of attraction, mindfulness). So, I thought I’d give you a little of each to kick off the comeback.

Freedom = Security
“Happiness has many roots, but none more important than security”. E.R. Stettinius, Jr. Back in the day I used to think that my idea of hell would be a stable job, secure home in the suburbs and sensible rubber boots. I wanted to be free damn it. Now…it seems almost the opposite for I’ve realised… Continue reading Freedom = Security
Use it or lose it
My low-buy year has helped me rediscover how much I already have. I’ve been making a conscious effort to reach for the lesser worn scrunchie or t.shirt and to cook with that cous-cous in the cupboard or those frozen veg in the freezer. The full KondoI If you have things that you no longer need/use… Continue reading Use it or lose it
