I’ve been a bit quiet here lately and I think I know why. I’ve been mulling over this in my head for a few weeks now wondering why my urge to write has quietened down.
I created this blog when I was feeling trapped. Trapped in my life, in my past choices, what society ‘expects’ of me and I needed to remind myself daily on why life is amazing.
That’s the thing, I don’t feel trapped anymore. I’ve learnt this year to listen to the universe, to listen to your friends and family and that often know what is right for you. The most important thing I’ve learnt is to listen to yourself and acknowledge the thoughts and feelings you may have. That gut feeling is 99.9% right so don’t be scared to follow it.
In addition to this is to never sell yourself short. You have skills, talent and knowledge that is worth something in this world and it’s often worth more than you think.
So I think this is why I’ve stopped writing for a little while. I no longer feel trapped. I feel that I am back on the right path and essentially I feel happy.
My grateful today is my life. It is wonderful, crazy, fun, creative, hard at times but essentially very very happy. Filled with my mad friends and family that inspire everyday, I know I am one lucky lady.
You know when you’re running, and you start to feel your heart thumping in your chest? And your lungs start to burn a little? And your legs start to twitch? And everything in your mind tells you to stop running; to just walk for a bit? You know when you tell that part of your brain to shut up and you keep running? That’s what changes you. Body, mind, and spirit.

Running…..I need to remember this when I’m going through the whole ‘I don’t want to go train’ argument in my head before I go for a run…
Day one at Splendour in the Grass. So excited about day 2! Fun times ahead…
