I've been home now a few weeks now and it's given me time to see how much Australia has changed me. Before I left for Australia I was someone who struggled to leave the house without looking like someone who had just had an all day sesh in town, spent the night passed out by … Continue reading New Life Lessons
I've lost my way slightly. Mentally, emotionally and spiritually. My anxiety has been a real issue for the past month or so which has made things challenging and I've felt very off balance and out of tune with myself. So my weekend off was spent with me, myself and I. Focusing on reconnecting my mind, … Continue reading Getting Back On Track
A couple of weeks ago I asked my mum to send me a few items over here. One of them being a hoodie that my best friend Z gave to me a while back and its one of my favourite hoodies. I wanted to bring it out here with me but I didn't have the … Continue reading My Kind Of Home Sick
Well I've had a roller coaster week or so! The weekend of the 22nd i managed to have a Skype video call with my best friend L back home and it made my weekend. It was so good to see him and speak to him at the same time. We spoke as though we were … Continue reading What A Week!
The sunsets here are breathtaking. Just look at that!! This was last night but even the pictures I took don't fully capture to true beauty of this place. Sunset is my favourite time of the day. In my happy place I'm watching the sun set in the horizon (Creating Your Happy Place) but I still … Continue reading Sunset Evenings

When you move away from home or half way around the world it helps you realise who is always going to be there for you and who isn't. I've minimised my friendship circle in … Continue reading An Update From Australia!

My work is situated in the Hunter Valley which is absolutely beautiful and I had my choice … Continue reading Hiking In The Valley!
So last night I tried some guided deep sleep meditation. It’s been a while since I’ve done a guided meditation but as I haven’t properly meditated in over 3 weeks I felt like I needed a bit of guidance to get me back on track. I’d highly recommend guided meditation for beginners as it gives … Continue reading Lucid Dreaming – Part 1
For the past few evenings I’ve been able to go for about a 45minute run (roughly) after I have finished work and it’s strange to see how a different environment has a positive impact on my anxiety. I’ve had trouble running in public (you can read about it here). My anxiety gets the better of … Continue reading Running Free
My past battles with my body image and body confidence have been no easy road. I've only just started to enjoy my body and feel confident in the past few months. My first memory of someone mentioning bulimia was when I was 13. There was over 10 of us out for meal and there was … Continue reading Lower Than Low – Body Image
