Progression of me

from eighty four to now…

Time. Dedication. Patience.

You hold out your palm.

You look at the tiny seed.

You make a small hole and place it in its own patch of dirt.

You are careful to remove any weeds in the surrounding area.

You take care to water it, nurture it, keep it free of bugs, allow it to get enough sunlight, you talk to it – offering words of encouragement as over time it sprouts out of the earth, cautiously, unsure.

It takes dedication.

It takes belief.

In time it grows into a magnificent flower.  Big, bright and beautiful.  Bringing joy to all around it.

Each of us is like a seed – we all have the potential to grow into a big, beautiful flower, full of life, love and happiness.  Bringing colour to the lives of everyone we meet.  All we need is a bit of patience.  Just like a flower – it won’t happen overnight, but give it time and it will happen.

Make sure you nurture yourself.  Keep yourself free from those “bugs” who are not going to do you any favours!  Fuel yourself with wholesome foods, talk to yourself positively, hydrate, take some time to do things you enjoy, and most importantly LOVE yourself.


What will you do?

I saw this video posted on an amazing blog I follow and I thought it deserved more than a “reblog”. I thought I’d write an actual post about it.

It really puts into perspective how much time we have (or don’t have) and that we really should be making the most of each and every day!

It is another take on “life is too short” and that if we aren’t happy doing what we are doing then we need to change it.  We really don’t know how many jelly beans we have left…

Take a look at it, and I hope it inspires you to do something incredible today 🙂


Sunday Shout Out Week 6!

Gym Motivation Tees!  <—- check out the site here!!!

This weeks Shout Out goes to an awesome gym clothing website I stumbled across.  It has some fantastic fun, motivational t-shirts and clothing for the gym/working out.

I am keen to reward myself with a few items of clothing from this website when I reach my goal weight 🙂

I thought I’d share with you all in case you are also in the market for some new work out clothes!  Enjoy!


The Magic of Travel

The Magic of Travel

What do you think when you look at this image? Paradise? Well, you’d be pretty close!!! This is where I spent the better half of the last week. And wow – what an amazing part of the world the Gili Islands are.

This time last year, if someone had mentioned the Gili Islands I would not have had a clue about them, and probably not much interest in visiting. Closer to Lombok than to Bali as I originally thought, the ocean is crystal clear, the sand white and the people relaxed and friendly…

I wish I could have stayed longer but it was the perfect taster – just enough to feel worthwhile, but to allow me to leave wanting more.

I am feeling much more relaxed and refreshed after my trip away with the girls. It’s amazing the power travel has on a you can allow your mind to wander, leaving you with questions answered and feeling revived and alive! I now feel I have the energy to dive headfirst into the last month or so of work and health/fitness before I head to America…

To An Awesome 2013!

To An Awesome 2013!

A friend of mine found this on facebook and wanted to share it – I love it! Here’s hoping you do too 🙂



“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.  When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.  They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.  They may seem like a godsend, and they are.  They are there for the reason you need them to be.  Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.  Sometimes they die.  Sometimes they walk away.  Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.  What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled;  their work is done.  The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.  They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.  They may teach you something you have never done.  They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.  Believe it!  It is real!  But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.  Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);  and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.  It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.”
