Say Something

… when you don’t know what to say! I’m sure you’ve noticed my absence on the blog over the last few months. It’s not that I didn’t want to blog during that time. I did. I simply struggled with being consistent. I simply struggled with articulating what I wanted to say. Granted, there are lots of people out there who have said what I’m interested in sharing on this platform. They simply aren’t me, and probably won’t say it in the same way that I wish to. Nonetheless, I struggled with putting pen to paper. Whenever I sat in front of my laptop to write something, my mind froze completely. I knew exactly what I wanted to write about but filling up the blank page with words got harder as time went by. Maybe…

Project 1 Of 52: What Does Success Look Like To You?

It’s interesting how thing work out. When I decided to do this project, I didn’t really set any concrete rules on how I’d go. I just knew that I wanted to grow and expand my comfort zone. For my first project, I decided to do something to ease myself into it. The challenge was simple: stay back after church and socialize with people I’d never met before.

I don't know what the year holds, but I know that I can take certain actions to help with my personal growth.

My Intentions For May

[caption id="attachment_553" align="aligncenter" width="4608"] First off, happy new month![/caption] There are so many things about May that I love. I love the fact that the weather is finally getting cooler here in Australia and it is truly beginning to feel like Autumn. I feel like I am finally settling into 2016 even though we're almost halfway through the year. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me and i'm happy to start again with a new month. May is a blank slate for me. I decided to set myself some intentions/goals for this month. I have limited myself to four simple intentions that align with the projects I have to complete. My intentions are: to write 16,000 words for my thesis to go for learning walks on Sunday evenings or Monday…
