Think With Your Heart

“You’re crazy. You haven’t thought this through. Don’t make any drastic decisions. Sleep on it a bit. How could you do that? It’s so irresponsible.” These are just a few of the statements I heard on a regular basis. I think with my heart and I listen to my gut. To some, this may beContinue reading “Think With Your Heart”

2017 Reflection – What a year! :)

As I sit in my new home staring out the window at the fresh falling snow as it covers the naked trees, I can’t help but smile. How did I get here? To say 2017 flew by is an understatement. I honestly have no idea where the time went! Do you?! Today, I sat downContinue reading “2017 Reflection – What a year! :)”

Thank You Cambodia

After already being in Vietnam I felt as though landing in Cambodia was going to be ‘easier’. Meaning, less of a culture shock and easier to adjust. Boy was I wrong. Maybe it’s the fact that I just came from beautiful, clean land of ‘no worries’ aka Australia where avocado on toast is $18 andContinue reading “Thank You Cambodia”

I thought I was leaving for this trip to escape the 9-5 grind and be schedule free. However, that has yet to happen. Today is the first day which I can say I woke up refreshed after a full night’s sleep, with no alarm at 8 am and spent my morning how I wanted to spend it. Meditating, walking along the beach and really just taking in the last few weeks of chaos and reflecting on what I’ve learned. 

Being Vulnerable Shows Strength

Vulnerability is something so many of us shy away from. When really it is an important part of human connection. Being vulnerable allows us to put ourselves out there and receive the help or guidance which we desire. Society has unfortunately made vulnerability be seen as a weakness but I for one know that couldn’tContinue reading “Being Vulnerable Shows Strength”

Be Kind!

REAL TALK: This is not a rant. It is simply words spoken from my heart that people need to hear!

Women at work always seem to be hassling me for ‘being healthy’. Yesterday morning they had a big waffle breakfast for our recent achievements. I chose to go to the breakfast, and I simply chose not eat because although I appreciated the gesture from our boss and thought it would be nice to socialize, I didn’t want to eat what was being provided.
