2017

Hey there guys! i hope you are all having a fantastic week. I apologise for this challenge taking so long to be uploaded, there is a reason for that, and I will explain it to you all. This weeks challenge was very hard for me to not only film, but also post. I was hesitant. Why? Because as you will see in my video, I am so raw and vulnerable when I talk about my Body dysmorphic disorder. The emotions hit me hard, the truth hits me hard, and the words i speak are all the truth.

These challenges however were all made to help me grow as a person, and also to challenge me to step out of my comfort zone, and thats exactly what i did.

I learnt to not hold back on discussing something important, even if it is so hard for me to talk about, because even if it means I can help one person out, then that is me doing my job. I suffered way too long with this disorder and if having someone watch my video and realise that they are not alone with anything they are currently fighting with their own battles, then that is truely enough for me. Speaking about it, and letting my emotions out also helped me on my own journey as well. Sometimes you really just need to let out how your feeling in order to feel better. Its never a good option to just let emotions build up. Always know that there is help out there and that you are not alone.

I think it is only fair that I worn you all that I do get emotional in this video. It was not a cry for attention, but a way for me to get my message out there. Thank you so much for your continuous support and beautiful words. It seriously means the world to me.

Until next time,

Hey All! I hope the start of you week has been exciting! As the festive season comes to an end, everyone starts off strong with their new years resolutions and getting ready to head back to work. 2017 is going to be such a good year, I can already feel it and we are only 2 weeks in! As you guys know, My 2017 resolution was to focus on my health, my fitness and completely change my mindset by completing my 2017 challenge. I am now into week two and I’m so excited to show you guys this weeks challenge!

This weeks challenge was focused around friendship. Spending time with my friends, focusing on them and really showing them how much they mean to me. This week I did a lot of that on and off camera. I think its important to keep a balance of what you show to the world and what you keep between you and your friends.

Sometimes i get so busy during the week I forget to set aside some time to see them and really make a connection with them, and thats something I am working on. I know if it wasn’t for my best friends, I really would not have gotten through 2016 and through some of the toughest moments of my life. I have the most beautiful group of friends and I am so thankful for each of them. They make every day enjoyable and make every time I see them so much fun. I learnt to never ever take a friend who is there for you for granted, You should be so grateful for the ones who will prove to you just how much you mean to them, Keep them friends close. We may only be 2 weeks, but this challenge was one of my favourites, nothing brings me more joy then seeing the people i love, Smiling.

Thank you all so much for taking your time to read and watch. It was never my intention for anyone to message me and tell me how much they are enjoying them, or nor did I think I would even get one view, I was purely making them for me to be able to reflect on, but the feedback has been so beautiful. I really hope you guys enjoy this weeks video/challenge.

Until Next time,

The first 2017 challenge ever and I am SO excited to share this with you all! Last week from Sunday the 1st of Jan, to Sunday the 8th of Jan, I had the challenge of visiting 5 beaches within that week to reflect, focus on myself and really just getting out and exploring. I also got to incorporate fitness by walking each path at each of the beaches I visited.

Its crazy when you just have a focus and you really get to just shut off from the world and focus on the beauty around you, and I was lucky enough to do that at each beach I visited. Im not going to lie, these videos and posts are about me being raw and honest, and of course at 2 of the beaches, I got emotional, but still sat there, let myself cry and it made me feel so, so much better to just express myself and let out the emotions I had been building up for so long.

I learnt that not everything is worth worrying about. When I was sitting by the water focusing on the waves I really got to thinking about myself and how much I let worry get to me, and truly it is not worth it. We dont have much time on this beautiful planet and we really need to make the most of what we have. Dont hold grudges, dont get upset about small things and dont let yourself think you are not worth it, because you really are. I spent so many years of my life thinking I wasn’t good enough, when in fact, I am, I always have been and I can hold my head up high.

Another beautiful thing I learnt from this challenge was to think of worrying and pain like a package, talk about it, write it down, and throw the “package” in the water and let the waves carry all your worries away. The beach and watching the ocean is now the place I will go to reflect and really help with any built up worry or frustration I have. I am so grateful to live in an area that allows me to visit such beautiful places and I cannot wait to explore more of the beaches Australia has to offer.

Happy 2017 to all you beautiful souls! As you would have been able to tell, I took a long break in 2016, and this comes down to a lot happening in my personal life and just needing some time to myself, to focus on myself and what was making me so unhappy. I took a lot of time to just work, draw and think and in this time I came up with the Journey Jar, a massive challenge for myself in 2017. The challenge jar, to put it in simple terms is a jar full of challenges Ive created to push myself out of my comfort zone and really do things I would not have done before. I was fed up with never pushing myself harder, never challenging myself and never doing the things that made me happy because I was always worried about what others would think, and this way, i can change that. The jar has 52 challenges that I will have to complete week to week. Some health related, some fitness related and some to help me find self love, self growth and to help with the relationships I have with the people in my life.

To some, It might sound silly, but to me, having a jar visually there with challenges to select, It will make it a lot easier for me to stick to the challenges. I decided to also create Vlogs and videos to track this progress and will be uploading them onto my youtube channel. I am perfectly content and happy for these videos to get 0 views, as long as I can track my progress and see the changes i make in myself, I’ll be happy.

This challenge is not going to be easy for me. Even putting myself in front of a camera is super nerve racking and going to be a challenge, but if it means I can become a better person and have little to no regrets with living my life in 2017 and onwards, then that will be a win for me.

Thank you for being patient with me as I took my long break and for always being so kind, supportive and loving towards my website and towards me, It does not go un noticed ♡
