I struggle to actually put in to words at the moment exactly what it is I am grateful for and what’s making my happiness list when I feel like it’s just everything. Does that mean life is perfect? No, life isn’t meant to be perfect, it just means I am embracing more than ever every up and down and ebb’ing and flowing with life like nobodies business. There isn’t any secret to life, there really isn’t, you just have to be open to every failure as a beautiful lesson, wake with deep deep gratitude, chose to be happy and have FUN.
Beach days + Goal writing + Cafe hangs
There is no doubt about it. Water is my muse. Being by the ocean or in the ocean is so fundamental to my Joie De Vivre and not being chained to a 9-5 desk anymore I spend a LOT more time by the water. I was doing my gratitudes on a weekly Monday biz call this week and my main one was dunking my head under the salty water at the beach for the first time this Summer. It’s not a lie when they say the best things in life are free, and being able to soak in the divine sunshine on a beautiful Perth beach is one of those ‘how lucky am I’ activities. Living in divine ole Perth with it’s delicious beaches certainly helps. The fabulous Bib & Tucker now being situated on my fav beach – Leighton – also helps oh so much….there isn’t a week that goes by where I don’t wander in for some champagne to toast life (p.s try the pulled pork and fish taco’s there – it’s my fav!)
‘For someone who whole heartedly believes in manifestation, gratitude and law of attraction, I am almost ashamed to admit I had in fact never read the book the secret, that was, until recently when I popped the book in to my suitcase as we jetted off for Bali. It was d.e.v.o.u.r.e.d. SO enjoyable to read and lightbulb after lightbulb and aha moment after aha moment. The words leapt off the page to me and so much clicked. I also believe in reading the same book a few times to learn different lessons, so I am starting this one again in a few days, but if you have read it, I encourage you to go back to it with a new set of eyes, and if you haven’t ever read it – slap it high on your to read list. If you can truly believe that whatever you truly desire can be yours, then this is the book to solidify it even more.
This Guy + officially being business partners now
So not only is this handsome guy my fiance and best friend, we have recently thrown business partners in to the mix. A mentor of mine said to me when I was 18 years old; “the man you marry won’t ever have to be like you, he doesn’t have to like the same stuff you do, have the same drive that you do, or want the same goals that you want in life, (he knew I was driven even back then). What is required from him however, is he never stand in your way, he let’s you go after your goals and supports you whilst having his own interests in life”. I never really fully understood the weight of that until 2 years later, when Morgs and I had been dating for just a year, and I decided, at 20, still at uni, I wanted to get a business loan and start my first business ( my dating website Possibly Maybe). He didn’t tell me why it might not work, he embraced my desire to go after the goal and never once stood in my way. The advice started to make sense. He didn’t want to be a part of it, but he supported me with all he had. More recently, I found and ran with the extraordinary nutritional cleansing company I am now 100% aligned too. The same thing occurred. He didn’t fully get it at first, and it wasn’t something he seemed interested in but he supported me and let me fly none the less.
Now though? After never standing in my way the past 7 years and let me be the crazy person I am with huge dreams and a go go go energy, he has come front and centre in to the business and we have combined to be a business partnership. It is SO fun and we are learning so much more about each other even after 7 years of dating. He has is own goals in the business now and it’s my turn to never stand in his way, but this dynamic of adding biz partners to our list will be high on my gratitudes until we are old and grey I know it.
