I have spent the last week as you know at a Chaplain’s Conference and with two extra days of training. Wow it has been an amazing week and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

The workshop that I attended yesterday and today had fantastic, energetic facilitator’s. I love the balance of theory and bringing in real story of experiences.

I have been very blessed this week.

I am looking forward to the weekend, a sleep in and then Samba dancing class tomorrow. Just going to take it easy this weekend as the week has been very productive.

I will also be exploring more of the art side with Princess Heart Journey and am looking at developing Princess Heart Journey Cards. These cards will be able to help you realise just how worthy, loved and valuable you really are.

I also will be focusing on self-care as that was talked about a lot this week. I find self –care to be hard I am working on it and will find the balance.

How do you look after yourself?

What do you do for self-care?

What do you love doing?

Let me know, it’s great to share ideas.

Workshop Day One

Image

 

After our beautiful Chaplain’s Conference I am now attending a two day workshop. I am really blessed that I am able to attend.

It has been an interesting day and I am enjoying the workshop. The workshop deals with some difficult situations and issues.

Today I am going to focus on Hope.

Hope and belief in yourself is something that I am passionate about sharing. 

You are an important individual with great gifts and talents.

What inspires you?

What make you happy?

What do you enjoy doing?

What do you like doing that you get lost in the moment?

Who inspires you?

Who do you surround yourself are they people that can encourage your dreams and goals?

Discover you and who you are.

You are so worthy, valued and loved.

Believe this, you are.

Amazing, beautiful, talented, gifted and heaps more. Image

Blessed

Today was the last day of our Chaplain’s Conference and it has been a great three days. Tomorrow and Friday I have two days extra of training. Which I am so blessed that I am able to attend.

I have been thinking about the conference, so I thought that I would reflect on how it has been such a blessing and the new projects that I would like to develop.

It had me thinking about being blessed and how I was blessed at the Conference.

I was blessed-

  • Remembering that God is in control
  • Worship and how much I love worshipping
  • Love singing and want to do more
  • To be able to work a for a place that provides a conference with great speakers and food
  • A time to reflect
  • A time to catch up with other Chaplains
  • A time to relax and just chill
  • Great electives and passionate facilitators
  • Cluster time with other Chaplains
  • A great resources Expo
  • Just the right balance to the day, electives and time to catch up
  • See people who I attending my training with
  •  Having people passionate and having the vision for the conference.

It has been a time of refreshing, lots of chatting and laughing.

I have also been encouraged to work on Princess Heart Project and to step out in faith.

Tuesday

Today was the second day of our conference and it was such a lovely day.

We had a great keynote speaker and the worship was amazing.

One of my electives was being there for the families, it was a great session. It was about including families and letting them know that you are there for them as well as for their children. The presenter had such a wealth of knowledge.

We then caught up in our cluster and just shared experiences.

Tomorrow is our last day and I have really enjoyed the fellowship.

Will chat tomorrow.

Conference

Today is the first day of our Chaplain’s Conference and I love Conference.

It’s a time where you get to catch up with other Chaplain’s that you might not have seen since last Conference.

We had registration a 9am and then we had a change to chat, drink coffee and laugh.

Then it was time for lunch and we are really spoilt the food is amazing.

I know that becoming a Chaplain has really opened doors for me and I am so grateful. I have been really stretched out of my comfort zone in what I get to do every day. I have learnt to become flexible and to try new things. They are things that I never thought that I was able to do.

We are all individuals as Chaplain’s with many varied gifts and strengths. So it is really great when we all come together and hear about what others are doing. Conference is a real time of being relational, listening and understanding others. Conference is also allowing us to have self care for ourselves, taking some time to just be and listen. Listen to the small still voice that we all know.

Take the Time to Relax

Image

 

 

It’s Sunday and I really wanted to call this blog, Relax It’s Sunday. I was thinking about the title and thought you don’t have to wait for Sunday to relax. You can relax throughout the week in other ways.

Today I have just stayed home and have really enjoyed the day. The last month has been very productive and I have had something on most of the days. So today I decided it was time to just stay at home and to relax. Not having to be anywhere at a certain time, just to stay at home and enjoy the day.

Today started with a sleep in Yeah!

I have read the paper, watched TV, created art, listened to worship music and have listen to a podcast about creativity. It has been great to just do these things that nurture me and allow me to be able to have space to create.

I feel that it is really important to have some time to be able to do the things that you love to do. Set aside some time to create and do what you love.

My week tomorrow starts with our Chaplain’s Conference and I know that it will be a great week. We will have the Conference for three days and then I will be attending a course on Thursday and Friday.

I am really looking forward to this week and to see what will happen.  It will be great to catch up with the other Chaplain’s and to see how they are going.

 

How do you relax?

Saturday Celebrations

Wow! 

I am halfway through my #marchchallenge2014 I am really excited about it.

I have been thinking back on what I have been able to achieve. It has not always been easy and sometimes I have thought I wouldn’t possibly be able to post a blog. I have pushed through it though, I love a challenge and I really want to be able to achieve this one.

I have really enjoyed taking more pictures of what I am doing in my life. I feel that this is a great defining moment in my life. It has given me greater awareness of exactly what my days are like. I have realised as well that I can commit to something and I will see it through. It has opened up my creativity and I am looking around more at the world. My world is expanding which is exciting.

Today we celebrated my Dad’s Birthday and my sister-in-law made him a Hulk cake, it was my nephew’s idea. We had a really nice afternoon tea and my Dad loved his cake. Celebrate well.

I am looking forward to what the next few days and weeks will look like. I am excited to write about it and to reach the 31st March 2014.

Committed.

Excited.

Exploring creativity.

#spacetocreate.

Defining moments.

Breakthroughs.

Community

I have just arrived home from work it is about 8.30pm. I stayed back at work tonight to enjoy the sundowner that the P&C had organised.  They had organised a band, food and glow sticks, they are amazing.

I love the great community up there, the parents, the teachers can catch while the children run around and play with their friends. Everyone really enjoys themselves and it is a great safe environment.

I am now feeling tired but it’s a great tired. I just love my work and feel really blessed. I am able to meet so many different people. Every day is different for me and I am enjoying the diversity of my role. I have really learnt to just be flexible and go where I am needed.

Everyone needs to feel like they belong and I hope that you are involved in something that you love.

I hope that you are able to share what you are passionate about and to give back to the community.

If we all did one thing for our community what would you do?

Loves and Hugs

A Breakthrough

 

Image

 

On Tuesday I had a breakthrough with my writing.

Yeah!

I finally allowed myself to really connect with the subject that I wrote about. I did notice and feel that I when I write about something that I am passionate about it feels different. It had more energy even though I was not sure whether to place what I wrote about on my blog. I did  though and now I am glad that I was brave enough to hit the post button.

I did ask a friend of mine to check my blog and what I had posted. I thought it was a bit too full on. Her advice was to write more like that. (Thankyou)

It is scary when you put your thoughts out there.

I have really loved being able to be involved in the #marchchallenge2014 it has pushed me out of my comfort zone of what I write about.

It has made me look around and focus on things that I would normally miss during my day.

It has allowed me to be creative and to explore more of the creative arts.

 

What are you passionate about?

 

What is it that you would like to do that is creative?

 

Will talk to you tomorrow.

Flowers

 

Image

Today I am going to share with you why I wear a flower in my hair every day.  I decided sometime near the end of 2007, that I would wear a flower in my hair.

I have continued to do this every day.

I was going through a difficult season in my life and decided I needed to put back the colour into my life.

So where ever I go whether it is work, samba classes, boxing, going out with friends, church I always will wear a flower in my hair. I know now that it is my style and I was thinking of changing it this year and wearing headbands ummmmm.  I am not sure about this change, I will have to think about it.

So for me it was breaking old habits and replacing it with something new, something inspiring, and something that was different from what I would usually do.

I have heaps of flowers and I find that people will buy me flowers for my hair.

 

What is your style?

If you need to how would you bring back the colour into your life?

Let me know how you go.

Loves and Hugs
