Mantras for my 30s

Forget all the bullshit. Appreciate what you’ve got. Love the people close to you. Forgive the ones who’ve hurt you. Focus on things that make you happy. Smile more. Worry less. Let go – let go of anything holding you back and stopping you from creating your happiness. Embrace the weirdo within you. And never … Continue reading

Drive You Mad

It’s funny how someone can write a song that you feel as if it relates to you so much that you could have written yourself. I have this moment often. This song is no exception. Running away Oh, I felt like this yesterday And if there’s a problem, you’d want to know Who’s in my … Continue reading

My opinion on polygamy: take four

(This might be my last opinion on this topic by the way) But as I recently finished all 5 seasons of the show Big Love; which is a show about polygamy (surprise, surprise right?). After watching this show, naturally I gained another insight into the world of polygamy. (Refer to other opinions in amongst previous … Continue reading

Holy moly!! Every now and again I’ll read something that really hits me because I can relate to it so much. Those times, I feel the need to repost the blog or article as I couldn’t have said it better myself.  So, here is another: Maybe I’m just not meant to be loved “She’s a … Continue reading

Youth Insearch

I’ve been wanting to write about this organisation for a while now, but I can never really seem to find the words to do it any justice. I first heard about Youth Insearch about 6 months ago when I started working in the community service sector, and I was lucky enough to attend my very … Continue reading

People and Change

I must say, this opinion of people changing really hits the nail on the head. So many people think and believe that “people can’t change” (or don’t change).  But I disagree.  I believe that change is entirely  possible. I’ve seen it with my own eyes…hell, I’ve seen it within myself!  I love learning and growing … Continue reading

Shitty people

After an incident this week, someone said to me “they are just shitty people”.  I realised; People aren’t shitty.  Sometimes they just do shitty things.  Which is a result of a lack of love in their lives.  If you come across a “shitty” person, I challenge you to meet them with love and kindness.  And … Continue reading

My happy ending

A little while ago I mentioned briefly of moving interstate and ‘leaving someone behind’ who meant a lot to me. Let’s call him J. After three months of being apart, I went back down to Melbourne for a weekend, and caught up with J. (And just to clarify, this person is also the one I … Continue reading

I don’t play games

I sat down to write a post about something entirely different. A book review actually; that I’ll get to at a later date. As I sat down to start writing, a friend texted me telling me about this guy she’s been chatting with. She mentioned something about the fact that he just sent her a … Continue reading

Day: 1 – discuss your current relationship

My current relationship – is with myself. As per my previous post on self-care, our relationships with ourselves is the most important thing for us, and for every other person and relationship in our lives. My first step is looking after myself. That isn’t to say that I’m not open to others and relationships etc, … Continue reading

Why are people mean to others?

I just don’t get it. I hardly ever watch music videos, I just don’t have much of an interest in them, and sometimes they can alter the way I feel about a song. Tonight, I was listening to a random playlist on YouTube, and in a moment of repose and tea drinking, my attention to … Continue reading

My opinion on polygamy: take three

I stumbled across this article and I couldn’t help but share it with my continual opinions on polygamy/polyamory. *Find part one here. *Find part two here. I especially love the last sentence “When we stop being afraid of what’s across from ‘normal’ we will finally find common ground. The way I see it, love, all … Continue reading


Response to the Daily Prompt: Beach No words needed. The beach is my everything place.


Response to the Daily Prompt: Hope Just like that; all hope is gone. In one second; during one phone call; the last tiny little bit I had harboured for so long, has now vanished. And with that, my heart was broken; shattered; poured out onto the floor; crushed beyond recognition. Once and for all. My … Continue reading

Fill your emptiness, with you

I don’t want to agree with this. I don’t think we should seek to find happiness in external factors. We should work on creating happiness within ourselves. Maybe we need to find ways to fill those empty spaces through finding love and joy for ourselves. Not through seeking another person; or place; or distraction. I … Continue reading


Oh my god I miss you. But not just the regular way that you miss someone. I miss you so much that I can’t function in daily life. My mind is mush and my legs tremble at the mere thought of seeing you. Touching you. Kissing you. You consume me. Even when I’m not with … Continue reading

7 years later…

Facebook just reminded me that 7 years ago, on this date (23rd January 2009), I had my 21st birthday party. While 7 years isn’t really a typical celebratory length of time, or notable ‘anniversary’ or anything, I still would like to share what I think is rather coincidental (?) – or should I say, has … Continue reading

You’re Out of Your Mind

Whoa this song! A friend shared it with me a few months ago, but back then, I wasn’t really feeling it. And then about a week or so ago, I was on the beach watching the sunset, dancing to my most recently loved songs on my phone, when this one popped up, and I stopped, … Continue reading


I wish people would say how they’re feeling a lot more. I know I shouldn’t waste my time and energy ‘wondering’ what they’re thinking or feeling, but I do. Especially people who I really care about, yet who give me such mixed signals. I am utterly confused. If you hate something so much…don’t do it. … Continue reading

Metaphor: part 3

The waters got cold and murky, churning and crashing; pushing my body underneath, leaving me bruised and hurt, and gasping for air.

My opinion on polygamy: take two

A few months ago I wrote about my thoughts on polygamous relationships…and another idea just popped into my head about this sort of lifestyle. One particular friend that reads this will completely disagree with what I’m about to say, because I recall having conversations with her about this years ago and (provided her thoughts haven’t … Continue reading

Metaphor: part 2

THE WATERS ARE CRYSTAL CLEAR AND PERFECT TEMPERATURE!!!! 🙂 My luck is getting better and my days just keep getting happier. Thank you universe, you’re doing well!

Conversations with myself

This post has been in my draft folder for quite some time. So when I came across today’s Daily Prompt, I thought it would be a better time than any to finish it off and post it. (Not quite an ‘interview’, but hell, I don’t care) I’ve been trying to think why I’ve been so … Continue reading

Yes Please

The other week a dear friend gave me this book Yes Please by Amy Poehler, and a few things really struck me throughout the book that I just wanted to share and say that I agree with, or that it made me open my eyes to see life a bit differently. This book in its entirety … Continue reading

Don’t try to change the world

I heard these lyrics in a song on the radio a few weeks ago, and I just thought it was the best piece of advice one could be given when it comes to changing the world and finding your passion. Don’t try to change the world, Find something that you love And do it every … Continue reading

Sign your name; help save lives.

I know my blog doesn’t reach a great deal of followers, and that’s fine. But I really want to stress the awareness I want to help create about depression. For those of you that follow me regularly or semi-regularly, you would have remembered a post about an optimist with depression after I heard about the … Continue reading
