Love yourself.

There are so many of us that just don’t want to be alone, that are always wanting someone by their side or desperately searching. You aren’t alone. Just because you don’t have a special someone in your life, doesn’t mean that you are not loved. Your Family, friends, colleagues, heck even strangers- they spread just as much love and light as a partner could.

I hate seeing people jump from one relationship to another so quickly. I think sometimes the fact of not having someone there scares people, but it shouldn’t. If anything, it should help you grow.

Not being in a relationship, I think is healthy for you. You learn to love yourself and take care of yourself without relying on someone to do it for you or to keep you grounded. This is only the way I look at, a lot of people would completely disagree. I just think that if you can learn to enjoy life and be full of happiness by yourself, you don’t have to rely on someone to do that for you and that’s the best way to be.

I have never been happier and I haven’t dated for a few years now. But in that time frame of not dating, I have truly found myself. I have found new passions that I never knew I loved, I made new friends and re-connected with some old ones. I realised how simple things in life can be the best. Things like going to the markets every Saturday, reading a book with a cup of tea on my back patio or buying myself fresh flowers each week. Things that everyone want other people to do for or with them, but are just as rewarding on your own. Cherish the small things, make them count. That’s what will make you happy.

I grew as a person, and I did it alone. You can too. Don’t be in a toxic relationship or situation and be unhappy, get out, have the time of your life and rediscover yourself – it will be one of the best things you do for yourself! I am not at all saying relationships are bad, they’re great. But if you are unhappy in yours, do the small things I’ve just written above and then you will know exactly when you’re ready for love again.

Life is one big adventure. Enjoy it. Always.

Until next time, T xo

Goodbye Sugar..

I like to challenge myself.  I like to do things where I’m not sure if I will succeed at, or if I I will fail. Things that others may think I won’t be able to do.  About a month ago (after the holiday season) I noticed how much garbage I eat.  Compared to some, I’m not that bad but I still eat unhealthy food, a lot.  I noticed a few things lately with diets, cleanses and I thought I would perhaps purchase but then decided that I didn’t want to go on a ‘diet’ as such. I wasn’t doing this for weight loss, as I am quite happy with my figure, I just wanted to see a) if I could be strong and do it b) how my body handles it c) just how much sugar really does affect our bodies.  In the end I decided to Quit Sugar of all forms for 21 days.  I am roughly sticking to Sarah Wilson’s “I Quit Sugar” & Diane Sanfilippo “Sugar Detox” plans just for a rough guideline.

I started last Monday therefore I’m just over a week in to my ‘quit’ as such and I can’t believe how good I am feeling. So many people experience different side affects and feelings, however I couldn’t feel better if I tried.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a couple of small headaches and a day or two where I don’t have as much energy, but I still feel OK because I know that’s just my body adjusting to the change.

I don’t think I am going to stick to this forever, but it has definitely opened my mind to adjusting to a more sugar-free diet when I do decide to introduce it back in to my diet.  I am not saying it is for every one because it is hard completely cutting sugar from your diet, but it’s not impossible.  It’s hard at the start, but the more days you keep pushing on the easier it becomes.  I will put the list below that I am following in case some one is interested in giving it a go – and of course, if you have any questions then just ask!

Be kind to one another.
Until next time, T. ♥

My favourite destination

There’s just something about the way you feel when you decide to travel.

The weeks or months leading up to it give you so many mixed emotions. The sense of being disorganised or not well prepared but then the absolute excitement that you’re about to head away on a holiday. Whether it be just to Sydney, a little further to New Zealand or 20 something hours away, I always get that buzz. Travelling completely changes me, not to say it changes every one, but me, definitely.

I am always a energetic and happy person, but when it comes time to travel, I don’t know how but I become even happier, a smile as wide as my cheeks. Even when I go for a week, it feels like 2, a month feels like 6…and that’s the thing I love about holidaying.

I’ve been lucky enough to see a fair few places, all which have been so surreal and spectacular… I always thought that you could never have a favourite overseas travel destination because every place offers different things and are so unique in their own ways but I was wrong – I went somewhere (twice) and both times I left a part of me there.

New York City.

You hear the term ‘the city that never sleeps’ and kind of just think, ‘yeah, ok’ but until you see and experience it, that term is bang on. I find New York absolutely admirable. The sky, to the fresh air, high rises, rooftop bars, Central Park, literally everything in New York makes me ridiculously happy. To be honest, I can’t even explain why I love it so much, I just know that this one city, makes me feel so alive. More than I do any where else, even my own home town.

I have been twice now, I got to experience it with my parents which was amazing and the perfect people to spend my first time in New York with, it was very special. The second was for my 21st birthday, with my best friend at the time. We had a blast! Bike rides through Central Park, cocktails on rooftops, ice skating at the Rockefeller Centre and so much more. But the one moment that just stopped me in my tracks and made me feel like I had no care in the world was when we visited 230 Fifth. High above the city of New York was the most unbelievable bar, the staff were delightful, the drinks were spot on, my company was brilliant.  Put those few things together and you basically have the perfect night, the one thing that topped it off was it overlooked the Empire State Building.

I got the shivers at how perfect I felt in this moment and in fact, thinking about it still gives me that same feeling.  I hope I get to experience it again one day, in the exact same spot because in that moment, I felt complete. Whole.

I’ll post a photo below – check out the view. And please, if you are heading to New York, you HAVE to visit this marvelous bar. It’s impressively mind blowing to say the least.

Until next time, T xx

Two of the best. 

A Mother and Father are the two that brought you in to this world. They gave you life, cared for you, watched you grow and helped you. 

As years pass, the bond between children and their parents can go in so many different directions. Fortunately, my direction was the best possible way. 

I hold my Mother and Father in the highest regard. They are the two most generous, kind hearted, loving, giving, passionate people. They have given me everything and so much more. 

I find it so sad that some children and Parental bonds don’t take the direction I’ve had. 

The one thing I hope for when I think of having a family; is that I’m half the person my parents are today. 

I can’t express in words the love I have for them, but I do know it shows no boundaries. 

Your Parents are the people that no matter what happens, they will be there. Whether your parents have split, you’re angry at them or going through a difficult situation.. Please take the advice of ‘forgiveness’. 

Because right when you really need someone, a Mother and Father are the best support. 

  My two rocks
