Well today is officially the last day of the school holidays, tomorrow I am back at school.

It sure does seem like a long two weeks.

I am also starting to feel better of course.

I am really looking forward to Term Three.

I have a few projects to work on which I am really looking forward too.

Still have to work on that work and home life balance.

Tonight I will have to set my alarm, because I am so used to having a sleep in.

So my alarm will be set and I am really looking forward to the week ahead.

I have also decided to get back into my fitness routine, which will be a combination of boxing, dancing and running.

Yes I want to have a try at running. I will see how it goes.

Looking forward to see what adventure I will have this week.

Will share more tomorrow.

I love social media when it is used positively and it so great to stay in touch with people who live either overseas or just too far away to visit.

I also have amazing friends on one site that are going out and making a difference in their communities and also overseas.

I think being connected to people who are inspiring motivates you to do what you are called to do.

I think back to this time in 2011 when I went on my first very impact trip to Bali and visited orphanages. I loved it.

I had no idea what to expect and trusted in God and went with an open mind.

What I experienced was amazing. It changed the way that I wanted to do life.

I was so encouraged by the people I met and all the children that I met.

I loved journey and just taking to them.

So I am thinking that it is time to go and do something like this again.

I really feel that I want to go and also to take pictures.
I am really enjoying taking pictures of people enjoying themselves or being natural.

So I think that for August I will take a picture a day of something that inspires me.

Will share more tomorrow.

Let’s look back on this week-
• Trying to recover from a cold
• Spending the second week of school holidays at home
• Going food shopping on Tuesday
• Watching lots of girly movies
• Writing my blog everyday even though I was unwell
• Writing in my 356 days book
• Realising that day time TV is not an option
• Resting and sleeping.

My plans for the second week were not really any of the above but things happen.

So today I ventured out to have my hair done. I couldn’t cancel it because I am going to a conference soon and I really wanted my hair to be nice.

So apart from being unwell this week I was able to have my hair done. Yeah!!!!!

Hopefully tomorrow I will start feeling a lot better.

Praying for a full recovery.

Will share more tomorrow.

This afternoon I am finally feeling a little better, it’s been a long week. Well it feels like that anyway.

I am not very good at resting when I am unwell, I am impatient I want to be better and I want to be doing things.

I have to look at this as resting and this is what I need to do.

Today I have finally finished reading Lisa Bevere’s Book Kissed the Girls and Made them Cry it is a beautiful book about purity.

I have really enjoyed reading it and it has made me what to let girls know that they are amazing and that there is someone amazing for them.
But that is another message.

Today I have also watched videos and have really just stopped myself from planning and doing things.
This week has also been good as I have been able to prepare healthy meals. I have had the time to eat them slowly.

I am hoping that tomorrow I will continue to feel a lot better. I hope so because I will be having my hair done. Finally!!!!!

Cannot wait to see what my hairdresser will do, I am really looking forward to having my hair done.

Take care of yourself.

Will share more tomorrow.

The other day after getting my mail I saw an envelope from Compassion. I am always a bit excited when I see an envelope from Compassion because it means a letter from my sponsor child.

This time it was an update about my sponsor child and a new picture, she is going to be 17 next month. I cannot believe it.

I clearly remember when I first decided to sponsor a child. I thought at the time I would like to because I didn’t have any children of my own.

I cannot believe that I have sponsored her for about 10 years. When I first sponsored her she was 6 years old.

One of the things that drew me to sponsor her was that she loved singing and of course I love singing.

I have not met her yet, but I receive beautiful written letters letting me know what she is doing and what she loves to do.

I am so happy to see that she has grown into a lovely healthy teenager. It makes my heart smile.

She has dreams and she has goals.

Will share more tomorrow.

This morning I ventured out to go food shopping and to get something to help with my cold.

Today I have cooked chicken, watched TV and basically rested again.

I am taking a day at a time.

Last week was so busy, so I am glad to have some time at home.

I think that being at home does save me money as I was planning to go to IKEA to buy some furniture.

This could possibly happen on the weekend depending how I am feeling.

So for now I just have to be patient and let myself heal.

I have at least today been able to spend a little bit of time looking at Pinterest my favourite site for ideas and quotes.

I really have to limit my time on there as I could spend hours researching for ideas.

I haven’t been able to read much hopefully tomorrow I can get back into reading. I have two books that I do need to finish.

Will share more tomorrow.

I am writing this post while in bed trying to overcome a cold.

Today is has been the perfect day to stay in bed and watch some girly films.

Things that I am grateful for-
• Having a bed to rest in
• A roof over my head
• Electricity for hot drinks
• Having space to rest
• I am on holidays so I don’t need to take the time of work
• Being able to have a sponsor child
• Being able to read and write
• Being able to use this time to rest and recharge
• Grateful for a career that I love.

There are things that I what to do but I know for now it is time to look after my health.

Hoping and praying to feel better tomorrow.

Short post today but I am committed to writing everyday.

Will share more tomorrow.

Today I have just been resting, sleeping and watching TV.

I am still not feeling 100% and it is when I have to take the time to rest that I think of the things that I would rather be doing.

I am not very good at resting when I am unwell.

I need to though because I have pushed myself before and it took me a lot longer to recover.

So I need to be patient and rest to be able to achieve all that I would like to do.

I am grateful though.

As I say Today Is a Gift and whether I am healthy or unwell I am going to embrace the day and do what I need to do.

Today is a short post and hopefully tomorrow I will feel a whole lot better.

Back to resting.

Will share more tomorrow.

This morning I awoke to find out that I had an extremely sore throat. Ohh!

That is okay I was planning to spend the day at home sorting through things.

So I have been taking the day easy which is nice.

I love those days where you can just stay at home and not have to be anywhere at a certain time.

So I have spent the day watching TV, sorting through paperwork and generally tidying up.

I am getting there, I feel that I have achieved a bit in the last few days and I am happy with it.

So tonight it is time to relax and just rest.

I generally find this quite hard but I know to get better that I do need to take time out.

I am hoping and praying that I feel a lot better tomorrow.

Will share more tomorrow.
