On Finding Your Passion

Healthy Living / Little Moments

When I was looking at moving back to Australia from Hong Kong and possibly making a career change, I read a lot of articles and blogs about people making some interesting moves.  I read about people finding their passions and making a career out of it.  I was inspired to find out what I was passionate about and whether I could turn it into a career too.  I was 26 years old and not really […]

5 Books Set in France to Read

Books

I was cleaning my bookshelf the other day and noticed that I have read a fair few books about France over the years. I loved France during my Europe adventure in 2012 because of the cuisine, the elegant language, the people, the culture, Paris as well as the countryside and villages. I think most girly girls fall in love with France because it’s just – well, very pretty! So it’s no wonder that there are […]

Little Moments on a Saturday

Getting back into the routine after an amazing holiday is difficult! I miss being on holidays, the sense of adventure, the people, the food and of course, having an agenda of eat, see, eat, see, eat, sleep and wake up and repeat.  It’s all so lovely and easy.   But today, I think I slipped back into the routine quite easily and enjoyed my day.  I began the day bright and early at 6am because […]

Do: I just got back from one of the most amazing trips of my life so far – safari in Botsawana.  It was amazing.  I am the girl that’s walking around the office saying ‘it’s amazing’ and possibly annoying everyone to no end – but I don’t care.  I’m telling the truth.  I’m also back at my regular pole dancing classes which is helping me to keep fit.  I’m not doing much else other than […]

Reflections on Finding Balance Again

This last year was so busy – partly due to my own actions but also for reasons outside of my control.  It feels as though to be able to get ahead at work, one must always go above and beyond which comes at a price.  The price of late nights, exhaustion and weight gain – and eventually weight loss for me.  I was so absorbed in my work and getting my promotion – which I […]

1. A cold glass of water after waking up parched in the middle of the night. Being able to drink cold water straight from the tap at whatever time we like is a luxury. 2. Stumbling upon a little vegetarian restaurant in Chatswood. This is the offshoot of the Nan Tien temple in Wollongong. I devoured spicy fried eggplant, potato and bean curry and stir fried greens with white rice for only $12.50 which went […]

Not Getting What You Want

Little Moments / Mindfulness

‘Sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.’ The Dalai Lama I have followed a linear career path over the last 5 years and for the most part, I’m quite content. But recently I started looking for other opportunities because I thought it was the right thing to do. I’m afraid of being stuck in something – even if it’s a good thing. I came pretty close to a new opportunity […]

Back to Reality After a Holiday

I have been on holidays for about 2 and a half weeks. During this trip we were forced to switch off because the safari lodges we stayed at had no phone service or wifi and very slow broadband internet… I’ll be sharing my lessons from the forced digital detox in another post but I can tell you right now, that it was amazing and I want to do it more often! I totally switched off […]

Listen to Your Body

Healthy Living / Mindfulness

During my recent holiday in Botswana, Africa I realised that we can learn something from the animals in the wild. These creatures in the wild (lions, zebras, elephants and wildebeest for example) are very tuned in to their bodies and patterns – they eat when they are hungry, drink when they are thirsty and conserve their energy when required. They don’t overdo it because they need to simply survive. Given how busy and cluttered our […]
