We waste so much time lamenting things we wish we didn’t do or say or wear or buy. This is unhelpful and floods your body with negative ninny neurones (it’s science). When I was giving up the booze, I felt attacked by my thoughts and hazy memories of shame and blame. Idiot! Why? Why me?… Continue reading No shame and no blame
Dear Diary, I saw Ryan today. He was standing near my locker. Jjsskkkcccc jskkcchhcccjjjjsss!!! I had just come back from PE so hope I didn’t look fug. If I did…FML! Also, am having mac and cheese for dinner (my 2nd fave after beef strog) and listening to Taylor on Spotify on repeat. So, I guess… Continue reading Dear Diary
Maybe those 3 year olds that test your patience by following you around asking, ‘why?….why?…but why?’ are onto something. Spectacled and sweet über-geek Simon Sinek suggests that we should always, ‘start with why’. He espouses on this simple but effective philosophy in his excellent TED talk and book of the same name. The basic premise… Continue reading But why tho?
Recently I’ve felt like I’ve tuned in 111.11 Love FM. Perhaps it’s because I’ve started this online dating caper or this Kinesiology course caper but my life feels like it’s being narrated by Cameron Daddo for Smooth FM (sit back, relax, run yourself a bubble bath…) and the soundtrack is the refrain from the Beatles/… Continue reading The Frequency of Love
Everything is a vibration, like attracts like, energy out equals energy in. These are ways that the law of attraction has been described. It’s a woo woo one today guys! It can be hard when you want something, not to focus on the lack of it but this is what we must do to attract… Continue reading Law of Attraction
“Stay in your head you’re dead” my mate Tony Robbins says. I am realising more and more the importance of movement and the impact it has on the mind and spirit as well as the body. I used to think cross country running was hell (it kind of was being forced to run up a… Continue reading Let’s get physical!
I’ve been collecting things for my box. Literal things, imaginary things and remembered things (I was busy thinking bout boys). Pictures of things I want (babes and beach houses) ripped from magazines, screen shot-ed or happy snapped and written down memories of things I see and would like (a couple laughing, a family travelling, a… Continue reading The box
I’ve recently rediscovered the joy of a brisk walk. Winter in Melbourne may not seem the obvious time for this but there’s a kind of magic in breathing in the crisp air and crunching the crisp leaves underfoot. It clears the mind, awakens the senses and rejuvenates the body. I get into a kind of… Continue reading Now for a walk in the black forest
Now I must admit that I stole the title from Carrie Fisher’s (RIP Queen) excellent memoir but it’s such a good one. I’ve done a lot of wishful drinking in my time. Wishing to change my mood, fill the void, escape loneliness or boredom or just plain wishing for another drink. I’m pleased to report… Continue reading Wishful Drinking
I spent 2 weeks off social media and survived! How did I do it? How did I find it? What have I learnt? What did I miss in the land of the Kardashians and cat videos? As part of my Yvette vs. the world challenges, a dear reader-thanks Melissa-suggested a social media break. At first… Continue reading Socially Sober
