I Am a Work in Progress

I have had such an amazing week.
I was so blessed to catch up with someone who I heard a few years ago speaking at Riverview Church. I have been following her amazing journey over the years and it has been really inspiring.
She was here in Perth for a few days speaking at several places.
We were able to catch up on Wednesday at 6pm for an hour. It was so worth catching up with her and I loved sharing my journey with her and hearing about how she is making a difference.

I was explaining to her how I want to start an Eating Disorder Support Group and was still thinking over what someone had suggested to me a few weeks ago about the group being a Christian group.
I had been thinking that, I don’t want to exclude anyone.
So my friend said to me don’t water down what God has done for you and you know that without Christ that you would not be here. What she said to me made sense. Her group is a Christian organisation and they help everyone and I love that. She reminded me that without Jesus it is just replacing negative thinking with positive words.
She also said to me don’t be afraid, I guess taking the next step is a little bit scary. If I want to support women then I need to take the next step.

I loved that I was able to hear what her organisation is all about and hearing about their values.
She prayed with me and quoted one of my favourite scriptures Proverbs 3:5-6.
Amazing.

Then on Thursday at one of my schools we had book fair and had to dress up as a book character.
I love my job, I went as Angelina Ballerina I love that my work days are so varied. I love it.

Saturdays are now my rest days where I am not planning anything or preparing for anything.
It is a day to recharge and reflect on the week.
This afternoon I went out for coffee with my sister in law and my youngest niece. I love spending time with them, it is creating memories.

I know that I am so blessed, I am thankful and grateful for all the opportunities that I have experienced this week.

Will share more soon.

I Am a Work in Progress

I found the picture above on Pinterest, and it really spoke to me and where I am at now.

The quote- Being Single Doesn’t Mean No One Wants You It Means That God Is Busy Writing Your Love Story

I don’t know who wrote this quote but it has reminded me that my love story is being written. It sounds really romantic.
I do feel like the girl in the picture sitting and waiting.

This does relate to -I Am a Work in Progress.

Maybe I had to really understand myself and get to know what I like and what I don’t like.
I also know that I have talents and dreams that I am and want to pursue.

I think that if my prayer had been answered about 7 years ago that my life would be totally different.
I would have just gone along with the person I had met and not really discovered with who I really am.

I have learnt so much over those 7 years I have grown as a woman with opinions, who is compassionate and who wants to make a difference. I have loved all the adventures that I have had and will still be having.

Yes I want to be married and have children, that has been my dream since I was young.

I am okay waiting for the right person and I am happy to let God write my story.

I must say that I would like to meet him soon.

While I am waiting I am not just going to sit and wait looking longingly out the window.
No!!!!!!!!!!

There is still so much to do.

The story begins-
Once upon a time…………………………………………….

To be continued………………………

Will talk soon.

I Am a Work in Progress

I am continuing on with the theme –
I am a work in progress.

It is quite an interesting topic.
It is making me have a good look at myself and what I am doing in my life.

I am making decisions about how to slow down a bit and this is happening.

Yesterday I just enjoyed the most beautiful day and watched TV and read. No programs, no need to be anywhere and no commitments.

It was really nice not to have to plan anything and just taking that time to really rest.

I enjoy those days, I really do.

I still get things wrong and I know that, I can look back and reflect on what I can do to and how to change things.

This morning was a first for me I was on the worship team at Church and I loved it.

I am a work in progress.

One of my goals for the week was to blog three times a week, well I managed to blog twice this week.

I am okay with that I have decided that when I come home from work I need sometime to just reflect on the day.

I find it really difficult to give myself time and this is something that I need to work on.

It is really important that I look after myself and then I am going to be able to care for others. It is about finding that balance and that is something that I am working on this year. It is challenging me.

Will talk soon.

I Am a Work in Progress

I am still learning to pace myself, to balance my time this includes my work, time to reflect, time to look after myself and time to spend with my family.

I am definitely a work in progress.

I don’t have it all together. I admit it, I own it I do not have it all together. I am okay with it, as I am learning heaps along the way.

As a single Christian girl I am still learning about the expectations that I place on myself and I have realised that I sometimes place unrealistic expectations on myself.

But it’s okay as I am learning.

Today I just had such a lovely day.

Today I felt that I had made a difference.

My prayer is that I would love to be the Married Christian Girl this has been a dream of mine for a long time.

It would be lovely to come home and have that chance to share my day with someone. Ohhh a girl can dream.

Today I have learnt that I love helping people, I love chatting with people and just being there for them.

I have also learnt that I want to get back into my boxing, I miss it I really do and I know that it is great for me physically and mentally it really challenges me.

Today I am feeling very blessed.

Will talk soon.

I Am a Work in Progress

I have decided that I will now blog 3 times a week.

I want to work on finishing my book Princess Heart Journey and a journal that I want to publish as well.
I also have some songs that I would like to record.

This is all to do with my Princess Heart Journey.

I will still be writing but working towards finishing off some projects that I have had for a while.

I am a work in progress- I know that this statement is for me right now where I am.

I am still learning how to balance rest and work, creativity and fun.

It is hard but I think also it a new season.

It is a new time to now use what I have learnt along the way and be brave. Be Bold!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to be able to be creative on purpose for a purpose.

I want to use my creativity to make a difference.

Today is Sunday and I have spent the whole day just reading, watching TV and spending the time relaxing.

I have felt after this week that I needed a day to just hang around and not be anywhere in particular.

My to do list is not very long at all, which is great.
I guess that I need to finish my projects before I add on new ones. (A light bulb moment)

So much is happening right now and I love it.

I really want to take that time to really embrace what I am doing. I want to soak in every minute of my day.

I am a work in progress.

I Am a Work in Progress

Today I felt myself falling back into unhealthy thinking patterns.

I am taking on a new challenge and trying to work out what I need to do for the rest of this term. It’s a really good thing that is happening but I am placing unrealistic expectations on myself.

I found myself slipping into the habit of what other people are going to think of me.

I know that everything will work out for the best and I just have to trust the process.

Its challenging, it really is.

When I go through these times I am reminded about how I overcome an illness that can lead to death.

I am reminded that I am here to make a difference and I have lots of things that I want to do and experience.

The weather has been amazing today and after work I went for a walk along the bridal track. I walked with a work colleague we walked from Glen Forrest to Darlington and then back. As I was walking and talking I took in the amazing scenery and the sounds of the bush.

We saw a small waterfall and hearing the rushing of the water was lovely.

Now I am home and reflecting on the day.

Everything will work out for the best, I believe this I really do.

Will share more tomorrow.

I Am a Work in Progress

In August I want to learn to take things slowly.

I felt the week leading up to going to Sydney was packed and I had heaps to do.
I didn’t realise but I was feeling a bit overwhelmed I didn’t realise how overwhelmed I was feeling at the time.
I think that when I stopped I felt that weird sensation in the pit of my stomach. Yes that it where, I feel my stress in my stomach.

So how am I going to change to really embrace each day fully?

Well to start of I am going to reduce my to do list.
Yes really I am!

I want to spend more time with my family and with my nieces and nephew. I don’t want to miss out on seeing them growing up.

I want to catch up with my friends more and to meet new people.
I want to explore where I live and go out for coffee and wine more.

I still want to be creative but I want to be intentional when I am creating.

I am excited about being on the worship team at church and I love singing to God. This is such an answer to prayer.

So taking things a bit easier and not over committing myself is going to be challenging but to run my race I need to pace myself.

I want to be able to do my work well, and do it with passion and dedication.

Will share more tomorrow.

I Am a Work in Progress

This month for August the new topic is- I am a work in progress.

Last night I arrived back from Sydney where I attended the SPARC conference 2014 which is all about creating a community of creative people.

I love the thought of using your art to make a difference.

I left Thursday afternoon and the conference was jam pack with interesting speakers and lots of ideas.

Saturday was amazing and I am just soaking up all the information and stories that where shared.

So I am a work in progress I don’t have it all together and I am learning more about myself.
I am vulnerable, I am hard on myself, and I want to make a difference.
I have fears, I get anxious, I am sensitive, I worry and I sometimes take on too much.

I have learnt that 3 glasses of wine is my limit, I have learnt that 3 glasses of wine +being tired + attending a conference +being in Sydney and then getting swept up in the moment = legs going to jelly.
Lessons learn’t.
I am learning that I need to look after my body and have proper nutrition, I am learning that I need to have a good night sleep to be productive.

I am realising that I will make mistakes. I am realising that it is okay to have fun, I am realising that I need to take time out to have a crazy moment.

I am realising that I need to let go and just embrace life whether that means getting swept up in the moment and just laughing at myself and the silly things that I do.

I am realising that true friends accept you for who you are.

Will share more tomorrow.
