Life and the Single Christian Girl………………….

 

I am really enjoying my Sundays.

 

Today I have decided to stay home for the day. 

I am learning how to take time out.

 

It’s a time of reflection for the week and to see how I am going with my projects.

 

It is also important for me to have a nice balance of work and home.  This is an ongoing goal of mine for this year. All I can say is that I am giving it a go this year.

 

Today I have been working on some of my projects which I am really enjoying.

 

I am speaking next week to a group of women so I have been preparing for what I am going to share with them.

I will be sharing my testimony with them.

 

I am really excited about this opportunity.

 

Saying yes to new experiences.

 

Also it goes with my May theme of Making a Difference.

 

Saying yes can be very scary but, if you don’t have a go then you will never know what you are capable off.

 

I am also speaking next Tuesday at WOW which is Women of Worth. I love the name and I feel quite privileged to have been able to speak there.

 

So I will be working on this talk as well.

 I will be sharing all about the Princess Heart Journey.

 

Good things, exciting opportunities are happening and I love that.

Will share more tomorrow.

Day Two #makingadifferenceinmay2014

 

Friday

 

Wow! I cannot believe that it is Friday and the first week of school has finished.

It has been an amazing full week and I have loved every minute of it.

 

I love my job I know that I have said it before.

 

I love my job.

 

I pray that I can make a difference in the schools that I work in. I love chatting with the children, the staff and the parent. It is such a rewarding career.

 

Today I was so blessed one of the parent made me a onesie and oh my goodness the detail that went into it. It is fully lined it has a hood which is lined and has ears and also a tail. I am amazed at the work that has gone into it.

 

Tonight my beautiful friend invited me to go and hear some girls talking about Gen Y.

 

They were amazing and so full of knowledge, wisdom and courage. We met some amazing women and I am so grateful to have been able to attend.

 

They really encouraged me.

 

It made me think about who are your role models?

 

Who encourages you?

Who is the person that you can talk to and really be yourself?

 

Talk tomorrow.

Life and the Single Christian Girl…………..

 

I have found myself nearly at the end of another month and tomorrow I will have blogged for two months. 

 

Image

 

Wow!

 

When I first started this challenge in March I never imagined that I would still be blogging everyday.

 

I have really enjoyed it and it has expanded my creativity.

 

I feel quite excited to write, now I have the need the urge the desire to write.

 

I am also learning about spelling and grammar. I might not get it right all the time, I am just having a go.

 

I am learning as I go.

 

It reminds me of a saying you don’t have to have everything perfect to start something.

 

Start something now.

 

Two new ideas have happened out of writing everyday they are two new projects for me to work on or they could be a title of a book, or a workshop or a talk.

 

One is #spacetocreate all about making time to create original art. Taking the time to look around me and taking in my surroundings and seeing what I can create.

 

The other project that I have is the title Life and the Single Christian Girl, which is all about my life and what I am doing while I wait for the husband that I have been praying for.

 

 

Life is definitely not boring, it’s an adventure and I want to embrace the day with all I have.

 

I want each day to have a great memory.

 

I also want to take time out each day to make a difference.

 

It might be a smile to someone, It may be asking someone how they are or just sitting and listening to someone. 

I really want to give that person my full attention.

 

Just sitting and really listening to someone

 

 

 

I hope that when I make a difference that I can do it well, with integrity and to be authentic.

 

.

 

So how are you?

 

How was your day?

 

 

Do you have a highlight for the day?

 

Send me a message about how you are going. I would love to hear from you.

 

Will talk to you tomorrow.

Life and the Single Christian Girl………………..

My last day off before I go back to school tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone.

It seems so strange a few years ago I was in a career when I would only take 2 weeks of a year.  I never wanted to take holidays.

Now I have to take holidays and do you know what I love it.

I love the time to be able to take the break and to come back refreshed.

I have found that it is really good for you, to take the time off.  It has taken me a while to discover this.

I have also discovered sleeping in I love it.

 

I think that having this time off has made me think that I need to look after myself.

 

I eat properly so that is not an issue.

 

I want to get stronger, physically.

 

I am involved in learning Samba dancing which I really love.  I will be continuing it helps me when I teach Zumba®.

 

Lately I have been thinking about going back to boxing. I really love it.

 

I love the challenge of first starting out and doing the warm up. The warm up involves a combination of skipping, weights, push ups, sit ups and planking. Then we get into the boxing with the boxing bags and shuttle runs. Oh those shuttle runs.

I find that when I am boxing I can let the things that happen in the day go. It’s a relaxation for me, I am focusing on what I need to do in the moment. It is also good because it has a time limit on it 1 hour.  I need to have this for boundaries.

 

So what do you like to do that helps you relax?

 

Is it something physical or is it something creative?

 

I like to mix it up a bit and do a bit of both.

 

Will talk tomorrow.

Life and the Single Christian Girl……………

 

So what does a Single Christian Girl do when she buys something from Ikea that needs to be put together?

I hear you say read the directions, Yes done.

I still cannot work it out so I think that my brother in law needs a project.

 

So that is what I did I went around to his and my sister’s house and he set it up. Whew, thank you.

 

So now I have my new art and craft trolley.

 

Image

 

I also found out that my vacuum cleaner is no longer working. So I will need to invest in another one.

 

Sunday afternoons are just lovely. Today we have had some much needed rain.  I love hearing the rain on my roof. We really need the rain.

 

I have really enjoyed the holidays and have sorted through items and made new creative areas.

 

I have really enjoyed being able to write and create some art.

Image

I also have been reading a book called Queen Bees and

Wannabees it’s about helping girls through their

Pre-teen and their Teen years. I am looking forward to reading more of it.

I am looking forward to seeing what the new school term brings.

Talk tomorrow.

Creating Memories

 

The Life of the Single Christian Girl continues……………..

 

Today I had such a lovely time.

 

This morning I had a friend come over and it was so great to see her. I loved chatting with her and catching up with her journey.

Then I had the pleasure of taking my two nieces to IKEA and what an adventure we had.

Usually when I am driving anywhere it is just me and I listen to worship music and sing along.

 

Today was different with my nieces in the back seat. There was lots of laughing, singing songs from Frozen and High School Musical. There was also a game of I spy and just lots of happy noise.

 

I love to listen to them and hear how they are going at school.

When we go to IKEA we always have something to eat first and I must say I love the IKEA restaurant. They each had their own tray and finally decided on what they would have for afternoon tea.

After having food for our IKEA adventure we then went shopping.

We all had our IKEA wish list, a pencil and a tape measure. Then the fun begins.

We tried out tables, chairs, we looked in cupboards, we sat down at dining tables and we enjoyed ourselves.

I love going out with my nieces they make me laugh and bring me such joy. They have great imaginations, which I love.

 

Image

 

We finally brought some things and I also brought them something which they picked themselves.

We were probably there for about 2 and a bit hours.

 

Image

 

On the way home well what can I say?

I gave them my camera and they decided to make videos and interview each other.

 

One of my nieces loves cupcake wars which is a program on Foxtel. Oh my goodness I have just watched the video she took and she is speaking with an American accent. I couldn’t stop laughing she sounded exactly like someone on the show.

 

I love taking the girls out as this is creating memories.

They make my heart sing.

 

More adventures tomorrow.

 

Loves and Hugs
