New Year’s resolutions to embrace life to the fullest


 

And now, as we are about to welcome the new year, suddenly we realize – this is our fresh start, a new chance, a life full of things that have never been. There are new questions to be asked, new challenges to be embraced and new things and people to be loved (or the old ones, cherished even more). With the new year ahead we’re embarking on a journey with so many answers to be discovered and lived in this new transformative year, full of delight and self-discovery. This is the perfect time to dream and plan, as only dreams give birth to change. New year is the time to be brave.

If you’re one of the lucky ones who have finally decided it’s time they introduced a change in their lives with this upcoming year, we’re giving you a few tips to stir you into thinking straight – for yourself:

A List of Travel Dreams


In my recent post, How to live a successful life, I talked about short term goals, and long term goals. I am a huge goal kind of girl, where I love to write down all my goals for the future, and to have the motivation to succeed in something. I have come up with the idea of writing down a list of my current AND future goals, and dreams of where I want to be NEXT year!!!!

Summer days


This summer has been one of the best Summers I have ever experienced! Every year our family would go to Phillip Island when we lived in Melbourne, but coming to the west side of Australia there has been more to do and see because it is such a bigger state!!!

I went to Lake Bandee which apparently “looks” like Hawaii!! And we swam in the lake which was a new experience for me!!

Yesterday me and my family spent the day in Point Walter which we just sat there and had a marvellous view of the river……

I wore some jeggings with a striped orange and white singlet perfect for the day. I took my bathers but didn’t end up swimming, and I watched family play a bit of volleyball.

If you’re looking for that perfect summer dress there is a sundress on the Lover website which is an apricot sort of orange colour and is $695. It is called Lover Cotton and would be lovely to pair it with some gold bangles. It is a feminine piece which surely will have heads turning!!

I haven’t really gone shopping this summer to be honest, if I were in Melbourne I would be found on Chapel street or Bridge Road at this time of year!! Melbourne, as I have said before, is the best for fashion!!! And I miss that place dearly!!

But I have been travelling through Western Australia which has been quite fun!! And have captured some beautiful moments.

Summer days is all about comfort and simplicity, and if you’re looking for a laid back, summer read I recommend “Those Faraday Girls” by Monica McInerney. It is on my to read list and will get stuck into it as soon as I finish this blog!!!

Don’t forget to grab your copy of this Summers issue of InStyle!!! With the stunning Drew Barrymore on the cover. There is a section where she speaks as a confident woman saying “I am who I am – and I just don’t have a bikini body”. This captivated me as I used to be conscientious of my body in my early twenties but now that I am nearing thirty, I am learning to embrace my womanhood. Being skinny doesn’t make you a better person. It’s learning to embrace how you are, then you’ll realise just how blessed you are with what you’ve got.

I am also interested in Drew Barrymores book, Wildflower. I am totally intrigued and they mention it in the interview.

Anyways, I hope you have had a wonderful start to the new year!!!!! 2016 is MY year and I am looking forward to creating new goals and New Years resolutions. I have a few goals in mind, but no deadlines. I am taking life as it comes.

May 2016 be a prosperous and healthy one for you!

Be blessed
