Clean Environment, Happy Mind

I’m getting ready for my First Aid next week but while I am doing that, I’m also cleaning. I mean heavy cleaning.

The bedroom, the bathroom- EVERYTHING! I find that when my surrounding environment is cleaning and de-cluttered then so is my mind. I did some heavy cleaning today and boy I felt great. My hair kept doing this amazing thing when it fell and I just felt taller. Not only that, but I went to Subway for lunch with my nan and cousin and the guy serving us full on flirted with me. That was a major confident boost, I’ll tell you.

I have self esteem issues sometimes. I mean I am only human and I’m a girl so it’s bound to happy sometimes. Due to having this issues at times, I worry that Ben will leave me. Ok, I know that’s dumb but it’s a thought that pops up every now and then. So to be flirted with is a major confidence booster.

Now I want to let everyone know that I LOVE BEN! I will never do anything to hurt him or anything like that. I was just pointing out how nice it is sometimes that other people also notice your beauty too.

I honestly believe that today was a really good day because I had done some cleaning. A clean environment = happy mind 🙂 Well, it does for me anyway.

Till next time xx

April Adventures Continued

When I left off I mentioned that I was making friends. In addition to spending time with friends, Sundays I have now being going to the club. Yes, I’ve started going to the raffles with my nan and pop. It’s been really good to have a day where I am with them because I can see how pop is and if he is having a good or bad day.

Of course this is my Sunday treat when I go. Can’t really complain with that right 🙂

So now to fully address my unhealthiness. I do feel a little ashamed for continuing saying I’m going to get healthy but then go back on my word. Hey, I never said I was perfect. It got to a point where my friend and I have stopped going to Zumba. This is because of work and the shifts we have during the week. My shifts are 9-5 whereas she has now been having shifts from 11-6 or 6-10. Not great for when you need to go to Zumba at 5.

I have also halted my yoga in the mornings. This halt is due to vigorous study and hectic preparation for workshops and mock interviews. I have to say, it was a good choice to halt my yoga because the extensive study has helped me to pass all of my assessments. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to get back into it.

I may have halted my yoga but I have been spending more time with this beautiful boy:

He has been my calm through all of the storms I have been facing. I mean he is just BEAUTIFUL!

Anyway this has been April for me and I’m super excited for May and all that may come.

Until next time xx

April Adventures

April hasn’t been particularly great with posts. In fact it hasn’t been any. Today I thought ‘why not update on my month’ so here I am.

First off I’m going to pay my respects to ALL Soldiers who have lost their lives. Today is ANZAC Day and a special day for me personally. My pop was in the Vietnam War however he passed away last year so as a tribute my uncles went in the march to honor him. Just wanted to say that I love and miss him like crazy.

Lets we forget.

As for me, April has been crazy, hectic, beautiful, wonderful, mad and altogether amazing. Let me begin by saying, no I have NOT remained healthy. Family (mainly my dad) have been visiting and I have been working a lot. Not to mention study. Speaking of study, I have now completed my foundation units as well as my pracs with those units and on the way to gaining access to my full course.

I am so proud of my self this month. Not only have I completed all my written body of work but also managed to complete my verbal and practical body of work. Though, I have to say speaking is sometimes not my strong point. However, I gt through it and was even told by the assessor that I did really well and maintained a warm and friendly approach through the whole assessment. *HAPPY DANCE*

Dad came down to visit- from Queensland- twice. The first time he came, it was Ben and I’s third year anniversary. Crazy right? I have actually been in a relationship for 3 years and 1 month (as of writing this post). The second time I didn’t think he would make it as he was on the bus and had to go through flood water. He made it and when he came up started my love of Chinese food. I don’t usually eat Chinese but when dad was up, we had a nice little lunch date which started my love for it. We found a nice little restaurant and I got a Mongolian Beef. My goodness it was AMAZING!

Dad even helped me out in the garden. I was inspired by the garden looking so good that I even created a few little pots:

I haven’t taken a picture of the work done to the garden as there is still more (a lot more) work to do. Plus these guys are super cute and even though this picture is taken when I first started them, as a proud beginner with gardening, it is important to know that they are growing. For me to have plants growing is super exciting as I seem to have them dying on me usually. Fingers crossed.

My uncles have been up from Sydney for a visit and in fact are coming up again tomorrow, this time bringing my cousin. My Aunt had even visited with one of my little cousins which was pretty awesome to see them.

This month I have even been seeing more of my friends. I mean I have been making time and the effort to reconnect or connect with old and new friends. That has been really great and really surprising to see that I do still have the capability to make friends.

This post will be continued 🙂 It’s a bit hard to get all on one month in as well as provide details of the adventures had but I think I’m doing ok.

Until next time xx
