Half way through '17

6th month of '17.
Can't believe we're half way through already.
Thought it was time to re-evaluate where I wanted my year to be, and where it's heading. So much has changed. So much I've done! So much I haven't... 

2017 Goals as of Jan, 17!


* Turn my data off more, spend more time off my phone during the day. More time connecting with life.

I need to really do this. I'm getting so caught up in Social Media. I'm definitely finding it really hard to switch off!

* Make more effort for adventures with the kids. Build memories. Bus to the beach & weekends away.

We've done a few different things which have been so much fun! Beach, Movies, Kids Paradise... It's a little more difficult with school for Jydan, and when he's off he's exhausted. School holiday fun is on the cards though!

* Embrace my body, wear a bikini.

I've just started taking a little more care of my body, but my 'no shits given' attitude is still in force.... most of the time.


* Write daily, write a book! Continue blogging.


I did decide that I wouldn't continue with publishing my book. But writing has still continued.

* More effort connecting with friends. Catching up. Make time to spend quality time with them.



So many fun memories with friends already, can't wait for more during the rest of the year.

* Do something fun every Tuesday with Jydan. Movies, pool, adventures, bike rides, visit his friends. Jydan day!



Unfortunately I haven't continued with Jydan day. However, I have made sure that he gets an extra special hour of just him time each night before he goes to bed.

* Celebrate occasions more. Birthdays, Easter, Christmas in July. Make occasions incredibly fun and excited. Be creative!



Christmas in July is in the plan! I've also had lots of fun travelling, celebrated my birthday and divorce and many other things!


Ultimately 2017 was going to be about building relationships, myself and the kids up.

I have already;


  • Travelled to the Great Barrier Reef with my mum and friends.
  • Snorkelled through the reef.
  • Made many fun memories.
  • Laughed SO many times.
  • Met someone.
  • Started studying.
  • Continued working my home business.
  • Expanded my business
  • Made more friends.
  • Had fun memories with the kids.
  • Started Jydan at school.
  • Got my ears and nose pierced.
  • Spent more time with my friends.
  • Started being more organised.
  • Went back to church.
  • Dyed my hair purple & red.
  • Loved life.
Soooo much more exciting things to come!! 

What an incredible year this has been!!! 

One of my favourites!

New Life, New Love, New Perspective!

Hello, life!
My, have you changed.

It's a strange thing, having a boyfriend who has a child, you having children. Children. Dating. Yep. I said it. A few words ago. Boyfriend. Like I'm 15 again.
This time, add in three children, a couple of divorces, two extremely busy lives, two jobs, study, two different houses, and two very different people. We are both insane. Complex. And somehow through it all make sense... most of the time.

Sometimes we're easy and natural.

Sometimes we're stressed.

Most of the time we love.

I've learnt that I don't have to pretend things are perfect. They're not going to be, and I've learnt that neither of us will be either.

But we compromise, we cherish, we're patient (well, he is a lot more than I) and we try our best to make each other happy.

He's kind. He's patient. He's understanding. He's funny. And gorgeous! And I'm so thankful to have him in my life. If it's for a moment, or for longer, I'm so proud to have him by my side.


(I know right, we look super cute together, we suit each other!!)

My life recipe;

I get asked often about how I can be so positive and happy. 

Simple. 
I follow this exact life recipe;
I know my worth.




  • I don't owe anyone anything.
  • NOBODY owes me anything.
  • I am not responsible for someone else's actions.
  • I am not responsible for someone else's happiness.
  • What people say or do, is not a reflection on me.
  • It is not my responsibility to make someone else content.
  • It is not my doing to make someone else successful.
  • I can not control anybody else.
  • I am only responsible for my own actions and happiness (and at this stage in my life, my children's).
  • I will not take ownership of anyone else.
  • I will not feel insecure by someone else.
  • I do not need approval, but my own.
  • I won't associate with negativity.
  • I am aware of other peoples energy.
  • I am content with who I am.
  • I am me.
  • I appreciate everything.


I have a strong mind and a soft heart. I love others deeply and completely, and I love myself too, and I know my worth.

Self care is so important.

How can you give to anyone else if your own vessel is empty?
