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
“I don’t fix problems, I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.” Louise Hay Spring is coming. I can see the light! The sun shines, the rain showers and the flower fragrants. Hot Girl Winter becomes Hot Girl Spring. But how can one maintain high spirits when lockdown limbo continues? Having a positive routine, a… Continue reading Soothing Spring
Who else can relate to the whole Palms-Sweaty-Mom’s-Spaghetti nervous Nellies? I feel them a lot from the most everyday thing-ordering a coffee from the cool kiwi baristas, what if they laugh at my coconut latte order cause it’s all about the oat flat white right now? To the most extreme-talking at a job interview with alarming speed, Ariana-level high pitch, little volume and Sahara-like dry mouth and oh-Gawd-what-am-I-even-saying? Snap back to reality, ope there goes gravity.
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).

To know that you’re living as close to your ideal as possible, every single day.”― Elizabeth Willard Thames: Meet the Frugalwoods: Achieving Financial… Continue reading Frugal Freedom
The Hunger Games: May challenge
Every month this year, I’m trying a new challenge to see if it kickstarts a positive change or habit. In May, I tried the 5:2 Diet. I had put on the Quarantine-5 (kgs-at least!) so was hopeful that this regime would break my slavery to the constant insatiable eating. The 5:2 diet involves eating normally… Continue reading The Hunger Games: May challenge
Come on come on…Feel it feel it!
Marky Mark and his funky bunch were onto something by urging us to ‘feel the vibrations’. I’ve been trying an emotional processing technique ATM and I’m finding it effective AF. I’m doing a course run by Charlie Goldsmith called, “My Good Habits”. He explains that when feelings come up, they need to be felt fully… Continue reading Come on come on…Feel it feel it!
