My Happiness List


Let’s all just stop and take a breathe and celebrate how amazing life is right now. My days have been pretty intense the past few weeks but since I wrote this post, and changed my language and choices with the word busy, my hours and ‘to do’s seem oh so much more manageable and nights a lot more relaxed and filled with things I want them to be filled with.

I truly believe we’re all going through a remarkable shift at the moment and I’m loving the energy all around me. There is a shift in thoughts – from resistance to powerful positive ones and a shift in control – from believing our lives are at the whim of external forces to taking full responsibility and shaping our lives to how we desire to live them.

2013 is our year. For everything. Transformative growth, letting go, pushing through, starting again – & I am here for the ride.

On top of all of this excitement about the above, here are a few of the other things going on in my life that are making me happy…

Signing up for Marie Foleos B School 

I did it!! & boy was it heart thumping’ly a scary/ huge decision to make. Considering I am saving for an engagement party a mere 7 weeks away & a wedding middle to late next year, making a financial commitment to B School was one I didn’t take lightly. Luckily, I have an incredibly supportive fiance’ (did I mention handsome too?) who said if it felt right to do – I should go for it and he’d support me. So I did! & I already feel like it’s paid off – & it hasn’t even started yet. I signed up through my beautiful coach Rach (from inspacesbetween) & another amazing lady Tara Bliss (from suchdifferentskies) and they have created an ah-maaa-zinggg private community for all the girls who also signed up through them. The result? A group full of 41 women all on the same path together, energised, inspired and excited – sharing what we do, what we want to do, and a whole lotta’ heart & cheerleading & help. Its soul defyingly awesome & I can’t wait to actually start with the B-School modules…

P.s over the next 8 weeks I’ll be learning about; Profit Planning, how to build THE best website, communication with your readers/customers, list building, Offerings, Marketing & then 2 whole weeks of guided implementation. Pretty kick ass right? If you have been wanting to do something like this for awhile (with or without a business) come join us!!! You can sign up here (registration closes today so be quick!!)   
Lunch dates with Old + New friends

You know those lunch dates and conversations you walk away from just buzzing? It’s a renewed energy, and excited spirit and a fulfilled belly & heart. You get to talk about good stuff, and just gel and vibe in a loving space. I was beyond blessed when an old friend I used to go to Primary & High School with reached out and wanted to catch back up, but also introduce me to one of her other girlfriends who she believed was like minded. That girl was Peta from Anatome – Integrated Wellness. We laughed, shared books and videos we thought the others might love, and had juicy conversation about health & wellness & I walked away feeling blessed beyond belief that old friendships were rekindled & new ones were forming. Check out Petas facebook page to see just what amazing things she is doing for health & wellbeing with Anatome – you will fall as in love as I did!

Engagement Party Invites are done + on their way

Soooo it turns out in 2013 you have GOT to be wayyy more organised with getting invitations out. I don’t mean 4-6 weeks either, nuh huh, I’m talking 3-4 months! Ca-ra-zy I know. Morgsy & I although organised with the venue, date and everything in between, didn’t think we would need to get our invites out until Middle of March (giving 6 weeks notice), but when friends and family started saying they needed the date to book it in as diaries were filling up as late as July (for hens parties and birthdays) so we got our butts in to gear & had these babies out by last week. The result is an invite we adore, that my super talented Graphic Designer brother did that we BOTH had huge input in to. I.e. I would have loved a salmon colour or lilac as the colour, but Morgs direct quote was “baby, salmon is a fish not a colour, and we’re not having pink on the invite”. Roger that! Roll on 20th April – we truly are jumping out of our skin with excitement for the party and can’t wait to share one too many champagnes with our beautiful family and friends. 

Vision Boarding + New direction for this future website

Goals + Passion + Wellness + Inspiration

I had a super fun & super productive day last Saturday when I sat down to start (& finish!) my vision board for my blog. My amazing coach Rachel Mahegy had set me some to do’s when it came to our coaching sessions and one of them was to do a vision board for this little space & fill it with pictures and words that connected with me and encapsulated the vibe & purpose of the blog. I had vision boards before, in fact, I LOVE vision boards, goal boards, boards of any variety that put your goals and dreams in big bright bold colours. I had never thought to do one for this blog though – but after doing it, I am so inspired and have so much more direction with what I want for me, but more importantly for you, the beautiful readers. When you land on this page, I want to help you with;

+ Feeling like you belong in this spacethat’s it’s your sanctuary as much as it is mine.
+ Setting your big beautiful goals & achieving them with ease and excitement.
+ Following your passionwhatever sets your soul on fire,burns you up from the inside. I want to get you there. 
+ Wellness – of the mind, body and spirit. Guide you from my own experience of changing my life, starting with loosing 17kg, keeping it off, changing my mindset & living a happier life full of love. 
Sound good? GREAT. It’s going to be a big year for us and I can’t wait to keep writing with this new zest & direction. 
This quote ….

“If you don’t know your purpose, discover it now. The core of your life is your purpose. Everything in your life, from your diet to your career, must be aligned with your purpose if you are to act with coherence and integrity in the world. If you know your purpose, your deepest desire, then the secret to success is to discipline your life so that you support your deepest purpose and minimise distractions and detours” – David Deida

Goosebumps, soul lifting excitement, realisations, inspiration – this quote gives me it all.


That’s this weeks round up gorgeous, I’d love to hear what’s lifting you up, lighting you on fire, making you giddy with love. Share in the comments below.

    Woweee indeed!
    I am really looking forward to hearing all about your adventures at BSchool (in my mind I have you on a girls-only boarding school adventure – kind of like an Enid Blyton book ha ha).
    So thrilled for you Anna. This next chapter in your life is going to be a game changer for sure.

    Hi Anna, I´m glad you´re still moving forward with everything and I couldn´t help but notice your engagement ring. It´s so pretty 😉 Morgs has an amazing taste. Btw lunches, breakfasts or just coffee dates with my friends are also my favorite moments 🙂 Hope you´re doing good 😉
    xx Eve.h
