Dreams in the making

Hi!!! Remember me? I used to write random stuff here quite frequently once upon a time! One day soon I shall address all of that and why I've been AWOL, but today I felt compelled to write (thank god, it's coming back!). I knew that it would eventually, but for a little while I wasn't …

Pushing the limits

By now you have probably seen the ridiculous (and by ridiculous I mean so freaking awesome but cray-cray to the extreme) footage of Robbie Maddison riding a wave in Tahiti ON A MOTORBIKE!!! Yes, you did read that correctly - he caught a monster wave at one of the biggest surfing breaks in the world, …

Am I brave enough?

I feel as though this past week has been a series of signs and guideposts challenging me to think differently and consider all possibilities. But sometimes it is hard to see what's right in front of you. Whilst I have been able to identify that I'm at a crossroads; a junction of pathways to a plethora of opportunities …

Fail to plan, plan to fail

As you may have already noticed, unlike Winston Churchill, I’m not much of a planner nor have I ever been one for setting goals and so far, I've not had any major regrets.  But, whilst there is no question that I subscribe to the just wing it approach to life, I also concede that this year is different. …

On Monday, I read an article written by Carly Jacobs who writes over at her blog, Smaggle. And I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it since. You know how I was talking about the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon recently? Well in addition to mindfulness, a lot of things relating to passion have been cropping up …

Tin foil hats (or my journey towards mindfulness)

I recall having a lightbulb moment when sitting in my Buyer Behaviour 101 class back in my undergraduate uni days. My marketing lecturer began talking about the coincidences that occur during the decision making phase before a customer makes a purchase.  After listening to her explain, I remember thinking - OMG, this happens to me ALL. THE. TIME.  Here …

One… two… three… breathe

Tonight's post is bought to you by a determined two and a half year old and an equally determined (AKA stubborn) mother. Cue Mexican standoff! I'm not sure how many of you have kids, but if you've got kids over the age of 2 then I'm pretty sure you'll be picking up what I'm putting …
