I have taken up gardening this year, well at least trying to keep the plants that I brought alive.

I don’t really like gardening, which is why I am more than happy having a very small garden out the front of my house.

Now I have tried growing things herbs and a cactus which ended very sadly. I mean a cactus how hard is it to look after a cactus?

I do have a beautiful frangipani tree out the front which really is looking after itself.

So, I have been watering the plants every night since Friday. I am not even sure if I am giving them to much water or not enough.

It makes me think about how we look after ourselves and how much we nurture ourselves. Are we able to care for others better then ourselves and then wonder if we are using the left-over water for us?

If I am to be honest, I would probably use more of the water and care on others and then wonder how much I need for myself.

It is something that I want to get better this year, caring for myself and making sure that I am healthy.

There is a saying that when we are healthy, we are able to care more for others (something like that). It’s a balance that I want to work on this year.

How are you going with nurturing and caring for yourself?

What are some of your plans to invest in yourself?

Will share more soon.

This morning I woke early again, I don’t know why?

Doesn’t my body know that I am holidays and I don’t need to get up this early?

So, I made myself a coffee, so grateful for coffee.

I went to church this morning, the first for 2019 and I was expectant.

I love worship at church, I love being in the moment.

At church the question was asked what are your new year resolutions?

Well to be honest I don’t have any, I am wanting to work on goals and plans for this year.

I want to make a difference and this has been what I have wanted to do for a while.

I have a heart to impact and help others, which I really love.

So tomorrow I am catching up with someone to talk through what is on my heart.

I think that it is important to have people that can speak into your life, to have people that can help you see a way when you feel stuck.

Do you have someone that can help you with this?

Do you have someone that can just speak into your life?

They may see a way where you don’t see one at the moment.

I am praying that 2019 will be a year of change, a year of growth, a year of breakthrough, a year of new possibilities and full of adventures.

Yes, 2019.

Will share more soon.

I have had this scripture on my heart for the beginning of this year and the scripture is Isaiah 43:19.

In Isaiah 43:19 we read-

For I am about to do something new.

See, I have already begun!

Do you not see it?

I will make a pathway through the wilderness.

I will create rivers in the wasteland.

I love this scripture it is all about His promise.

He is making things new.

Have faith look at it through eyes of faith.

See it dream it.

He is making all things new, I love this He is making all things new.

Believe, pray and seek.

I have been working on my vision board, which is a work in progress and one thing that I would love to do this year is send out encouraging messages.

Last year during school holidays I asked if anyone would like an encouraging message. Anyone who had like the post I sent them a message. Loved the feedback that they received their message at the right time.

So, my thought for today is, would you like to receive an encouraging message?

Please message me and I would be more then happy to send you one.

 

Will share more soon.

Today I had such a lovely day, I went out for lunch with my sister, her husband and my friend. We went to Coco’s in South Perth and it was so lovely.

Now I have not been out to lunch to a beautiful place with such a lovely view across the water in a long time.  I loved it.

I am so grateful that we had a table that overlooked the river, it was lovely.

There is something about going out with friends and just relaxing.

There is something about South Perth.

My lunch was a salmon nicoise and oh my gosh it was so lovely. We had some glasses of wine and enjoyed the most amazing view.

One of my goals for 2019 is to go out for lunch at least once a month.

Well check for January.

Well Coco’s thank you for such a lovely meal.

After lunch my sister and I went to Bunnings.

I brought a few things for my house. I brought some flowers vincas (I  think they are called that) for the front garden. Now for me I do not have the gift of gardening but my sister does. So, she helped my dig a hole for the plants, to make sure that it was the right size, and then we placed the flowers into the hole. We watered it and hopefully they will grow over the next few days. I am really excited about this.

I will share more tomorrow.

This morning I woke early, I made myself a coffee and sat on the lounge. I love being able to drink my coffee slowly and pause to think about the day.

Today’s focus was on –

Decluttering

Cue the dramatic music.

Now I don’t know how you feel about decluttering?

I know that there are people that are really good at it and then there are the people that can feel their anxiety rising at the mention of the word.

We are all on our individual journey and that is okay.

I can drift between being really good with it and then sometimes I just don’t want to get rid of anything.

I have to be in the right mood for it to be productive.

I also have to be practical about it, I live in a small house so I don’t have that much space for storage.

So today I was determined to make the most of my, let’s get it done attitude.

I was surprised by how much I achieved, I still have a bit to go but it is all good.

I have such a love of stationary, especially pens, pencils or really anything that I can be creative with. Let’s just say that I really do not need to buy anymore pens for a while. Well!

So now I am feeling quite content with what I have accomplished today, knowing that tomorrow brings new opportunities to sort out some other items.

Will share more tomorrow.

I am on holidays and I am just taking it slowly. I am grateful for holidays, grateful for time spent resting and refreshing.

I have been reading and thinking about this year.

I want it to be different, I want to mix things up this year.

I want to embrace 2019 and be brave, to have faith and to have courage.

Somehow in 2018, I lost a bit of my courage, a bit of my can-do courage.

So, 2019 I am claiming it back, I am going to blog, to write and to not be afraid. I am going to speak about my journey with courage and faith.

I am going to embrace this year and not get caught up in those lies that we can tell ourselves.

The lies-

  • that you are not good enough
  • why write this, no one is going to read your blog
  • other people are already doing it better then you
  • why bother.

I am sure you could probably add some more to this list.

How about if we change those lies into-

  • you have a story to share
  • you have something that someone needs to hear
  • yes, you can make a difference.

What if we were just a bit kinder to ourselves?

What if we encouraged ourselves like we encourage others around us?

How would our year be?

What would our life be like?

How would this year be different?

Will share more soon.

Untitled design (2)Happy New Year

I love the first day of the new year, I love that there are 356 days of new possibilities. I love that there are 356 days to dream, to plan, to set some new goals and to make a difference.

356 days of new possibilities, how exciting.

I love looking at my planner, my diary and seeing that there is nothing in it. It is blank. It is waiting for the next adventure.

Last night I didn’t last to see in the new year, I fell asleep. I did go out for a really nice dinner with my sister and her husband. Then I came home.

The first day of the new year and I have decided that I will blog every day for January. Yes, this is my challenge.

I am wanting to get back to what I love doing and not be afraid.

What are your plans for this year?

What is something that you have been afraid of that you have been putting off?

In 2019 let’s not let fear stop us from what we really want to do.

In 2019 let us be brave and step out into the 356 days of endless opportunities.

Let 2019 be your year.

Will share more soon.
