The man who inspired me to blog.

“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” This quote defines my uncle. Andrew Knowlman. Lives in England. Today, turns 50.  In honour of his birthday, I wanted to share a post of how much Andrew has inspired me to begin my own blog and to always be present in life. Within the last…

Problems aren’t problems unless you make them.

A lot of individuals are stuck chasing the constructed idea of happiness and can never be content with the moment in time they are present in. This use to be me. To this day, there are still days that fall back and have to remind myself that happiness is not a full bank account, expensive…

The life of an intolerant-to-every-damn-food person

“I’m sorry for being annoying but can I please change…” “Let me know if this is too hard to do otherwise I’ll find somewhere else..” “Sorry for being so frustrating.” I feel embarrassed when employers just look at me with frustration. With all the kindness I can give, I am still that shitty person who…

Our Memory Journal

For Christmas, Keenan bought me the most thoughtful present. A polaroid camera and a recycled papered journal. Whenever we come across a significant event we snapshot the moment with the polaroid and record it in our journal. I love this because as we grow older we can go back and look at all these meaningful memories,reminisce on…

My Valentine

Just had the most spontaneous & beautiful Valentines Day with Keenan. For starters, a cute little man rocked up at my door at 8am, holding a gorgeous bouquet filled with my favourite flowers. Expected it to be for my sister or mother, but they were actually for me! From Keenan. Definitely the most romantic gesture…

Grateful #3: Rosie.

Okay, if you haven’t met Rosie yet you’re in for a laugh. She is my clumsy, dopey, naughty and affectionate dog. It all started at puppy school. She slept all class and missed everything. But, she still learnt how to sit, shake and drop… so she passed. Lets just say Rosie should’ve stayed in puppy school…

A cheers to Josh.

I am grateful for everything I have been taught… To live passionately and immensely, to be generous to the lives I touch, to take life on with 110% effort, and most importantly, the precious skills of how to save a life. Particularly this weekend was a moment where all of these life lessons were apparent,…

Grateful #1: Him.

Kicking off my Grateful Project, I am grateful for my beautiful boyfriend Keenan and the relationship we have. For over two years and counting Keenan has been my rock, my soul mate and my best friend. Despite training for hours and hours every day for his rugby league career, and living an hour away from each…

Happiness & Being grateful for your past

I believe that a lot of people are constantly caught up with the idea of “being happy” as it is a constant state of being. Happiness comes in moments, you don’t just achieve happiness every second of your life as you experience it alongside every other emotion on the spectrum. If you’re spending your life…
