The Long Weekend

The Long Weekend

We celebrated Australia Day on Saturday, the city of Perth put on an enourmous fireworks display, we decided to stay home and have a BBQ or as my sister said a lamb bbq. It was nice sitting outside talking chatting with friends. We also have a long weekend which means today Monday is a public holiday.

For me this week I will be returning to work after having holidays since the 19th December 2012. It was a great idea to have the break and not to do any extra work. I have had a great time of sorting things out and deciding what I need and what I don’t. It also has let me be creative and working on Princess Heart.

I have open mic this Wednesday at the Ledgends Bar in Applecross I am on at 7.30pm which is great. I will be doing some covers, hopefully I can find a guitarist so that I can do my originals.

I feel really passionate about speaking and singing this year, and I am praying for opportunities.

Today I am also finishing some assessments, bit of multi tasking.

Wow cannot believe that it is Thursday and I lasted posted a blog on Sunday.

So what has been happening-

I went to my boxing session on Monday and I love it, I keep saying this but I do I love it.

Tuesday I went to Samba Bootcamp it was great heaps of people turned up. Week one then I have 3 more lessons to go.

Wednesday I had my nieces stay over and what fun we have. We love to watch lots of DVD’s at the moment their favourite one is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Rodrick Rules.  I think that we watched it about 4 times they loved it. Pizza’s for dinner and then icecream for dessert they where so excited I loved it. I loved their excitement how they love to watch the DVD’s, then Thursday (today) this morning they did painting. Love that they can be creative and paint, laugh and watch TV.

Then to end the day of before they where picked up we where blowing bubbles. Just the most simple things that brought us lots of fun.

I love them to bits and now that they have left my house is very quiet, very quiet.

Sunday

Sunday

This morning I went to church and I was on roster in the lounge.  It is my 2nd last time volunteering in the lounge, I have been helping out there for 4 years. It is a bit sad but I am moving on to help out on Monday nights at church. I am excited about meeting new people and being able to help out. New plans new ideas looking forward to new things.

Change is a big part of what I am doing this year. I am making new plans and mixing it up a bit.

This will allow me time also to work on Princess Heart my dream, it is time to focus on helping out in the community. It will also allow me time to work on singing and songwriting. It will also allow me time to meet people to socialise and to be expectant.

I am really looking forward to these new plans.

 

Bling Moment-

Today I am praying to be expectant, to go confindently and to pray for new experiences.

This afternoon as I was cooking up food for when I come home late and I cannot be bothered cooking, I was thinking back at how much my life has changed since the car accident in December 2004.

In December 2004 I was involved in a car accident, I was the passenger we where TBoned as the driver took off from the Stop sign. That car accident really messed up my  life.  At the time of the car accident I was managing a Creche, I was told by both my doctor and the physio to not lift anything for 2 weeks and that I needed to take two weeks of work. WHAT!!!  My work I loved my work and when I couldn’t do it I thought my life was basically never going to be good. I spiralled down, you see work was my everything the most important think in my life.

As I think back I know that God had placed the right people around me, to encourage me, to help me to let me be myself.

I have now seen prayers answered not how I thought they would be sometimes but how God answered them.

Today I was at my boxing class which is just amazing, when I had the accident I could not even lift anything my whole body ached and was so sore.

I have disovered my love of boxing and that it stretches me it inspires me I feel strong. I also discovered dancing and how much I loved Samaba.

In a way the car accident interupted my life and I didnt’ think that I would be able to do anything. Now I am passionate for life, things have changed and I know that all things are possible with God. Have faith and be encouraged.

Listen for the still silent voice and trus,t hold on, be encouraged, be inspired and be expectant.

This morning I met a lovely friend for coffee, I love meeting friends for coffee and chatting and doing life together.

After that I had an appointment I was excited because for the next 6 months I am really focused on my dreams and goals.

I have loved this time being on Holidays to be able to sit within the creativity, the space that allows you to have some fresh perspective.  I know that for the next few months I will be focusing on sharing my journey. Today I bravely asked people to like my Princess Heart link on Facebook and people have. The Princess Heart link will be for notices about open mic nights, sharing my journey and fundraising. Also for photos of inspiration and pictures of things that encourage me. I am really looking forward to making a difference in the community.

I think that for the next 6 months that is exactly my purpose. I am excited about it. It is going to take some courage, some risks and doing things differently.

I am also so looking forward to going to open mic night which will be on Wednesday the 30th of January.

My Bling Moment is-

who can you encourage today?

Monday

Monday

I had a great weekend, just loved it.  It started with Friday night at my sister’s chatting, drinking and eating.

Saturday was quite a productive day my niece was having a sleep over and we also went out with my sister and brother in law for lunch.

It was nice going out to lunch want to do this a bit more this year.

Then we all went to my storage unit and cleaned it out. An end of a journey, I have had the storage unit since my car accident back in 2005.

It was strange knowing that all my things are now with me. It has been great having this time of work and having the space to think about what I am going to do this year.

My lovely friend came over Saturday night and we had another lovely evening.

Sunday morning was a pyjama day my niece painted and said she loves being creative. I was just having a great time helping her with her creativity and watching movies about being a Princess. Even when paint was spilt on the rug (I did it) everything was okay I was able to get the stain out. Now as I am writing this I am noticing quite a lot of glitter on my pink shaqqy carpet. It’s okay it has meant that there has been creativity nurtured and encouraged.

 

Finally Sunday night I had chosen to go Church, I am usually on roster on Sunday mornings so I will go to the 11am service where I help in the lounge.  A friend encouraged my to mix it up abit a church to meet people and then to go out.

I loved the message and was very encouraged then I was going out with a group to have coffee and cake, I didn’t make it because I was chatting with people and didn’t end up leaving church until 8.30pm. This just confirmed my thoughts on mixing things up.

I am also making changes at church where I will know be helping on Monday nights and will be stepping down from the lounge co-ordinator for the 11.15am service. I have been on the team since 2008. It was a hard decision I know that God wants me to help out on Monday nights.  I will also be helping out with the Pastoral team as well.

I am just so greatfull having the time and the space to think about the journey of 2013. I am excited, encouraged and expectant to see how this journey walks out.

Also new shoes where brought today!

Friday

Friday

Today I went back to boxing and I have missed it, I had such a good session.

I have been really enjoying the time off just to do things that I don’t usually get the time to do. The little things like sorting through clothes, sorting through sheets, pillow cases and other things. It’s amazing how much stuff we have, sometimes its an excess of things exactly that things.

Tomorrow my storage unit will be empty I have had it for such a while and it is a good thing but somehow it a bit of a confused moment. I have had a storage unit since I had the car accident which was over 8 years ago and I have now come to the time when I don’t need it. It is no more use to me.

I know that 2013 is the year to mix things up a bit and do things differently. As a friend said to me if you do the same things you will get the same results. I have heard this saying before but this time it was like a heard it for the first time. Do things differently.

I have decided as well to be more social go out more with different people, say yes more.

Another decison is that I am now looking for a guitaritst so that I can go to open mic prepared and rehearsed properly. I have chosen my 5 songs and will do an original as well.

This year will definatley be the year that my dreams will come true and life will be different.
