Pimp my ride #lefthanddrive

Yis!!! Great company, amaze waves and 2 surfs in the one day. #killingit #grateful (at Little Cove Beach)

Today I am grateful for my friend Carlie.

Carlie is like a surrogate youthful Grandma. She is forever sharing her fashion tips and educating me on gardening for my non green thumb ways.

She is fiercely loving and sincerely considerate. I am grateful to know her.

I love that when I told her about my 365 photo challenge today she asked if she could share some rules of insight she learnt at a personal development course that impacted on her life many moons ago. Of course I was all ears. So here they are. Enjoy.

1. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

2. Don’t hurt yourself and don’t hurt others.

3. Use everything for your upliftment, growth and learning.

Happy Friday

Xx

Day 13/365 Grateful Project

Day 12 / 365 Grateful Project/ Today I ran properly for the first time since my knee dislocated at touch football over a YEAR ago! I can’t express how satisfied and grateful I am today. I have never been a runner, I view running as something you do when you are either been chased or playing sport. I have had many knee & ankle injuries in the past but my body always bounced back. This time, to my shock horror, that didn’t happen. I saw a Physiotherapist and had rehabilitation for 8 months but in the end he said he couldn’t help me and referred me to a surgeon. At this stage I am still on the list to get my operation, but I think I can cancel that appointment. A friend recommended their Physiotherapist as a second opinion and I’m so glad I found him. I have learnt so much about consistency and daily discipline. And it’s finally paid off! Yeah, baby steps….I only ran for 5 minutes in the 10 minute session, but to run and have no pain whatsoever is such a foreign feeling after this year of daily pain! I am overjoyed and motivated to keep my body strong and healthy even if I don’t intend on running marathons, it’s nice to know I can run if and when required. If anyone needs a good Physio in Brisbane, hola!
And touch football here I come!! Well not yet but sooooon, real soon. And yes, that’s a selfie of me fist pumping amongst the roses in New Farm Park, they didn’t mind. πŸƒπŸ‘ŠπŸ˜ΊπŸŒΉ

Day 9/ This is a shout out to Hershey. (The only girl in the picture), and yes, she was named after the chocolate, how awesome.

Today is Hershey’s birthday! πŸŽ‰πŸ°πŸŽ‚. I am such a fan of Birthdays as it gives you a chance to get all gushy and say what you really think about someone without being weird. It’s all about celebrating their presence in your life and letting them know how valued they are. Hershey is such a rare find. She is considerate beyond measure, really thoughtful, wise and a big funny goof ball which is so refreshing and uplifting to be around. I am so grateful my brother has good taste in women!!! (Good one brah). I hope you are overwhelmed by your awesomeness today. Enjoy celebrating! Love you millions xx

365 Grateful Project: Day 4

Meet Beryl. Today is her 90th Birthday! πŸŽ‚πŸ’—πŸŽ‰ I have always loved spending time with those who have been around the block a couple of times. I have cherished memories of time spent with older people as a child. They were always so captivating and exciting to me, as they had such insight and adventurous stories to share. They also carry parts of history in their hearts that I have never experienced, only read (and other personal stories that only few know). I love this quote by Michael Crichton; “If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything. You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”

History is SO important and revealing as we study the human psyche.
We are all blessed with aged people in our communities who are only too happy to share their wisdom and experiences with us. Granted, there are also some who would rather be left alone lol. Not Beryl. Beryl is a trooper! I am grateful to have people like Beryl in my life. She is seriously independent, loves socialising with her family and church crew, and won’t take no help from nobody, which I love. She is a fighter. I asked her if she had any wisdom to share today and she said to always strive to be a better person. She’s obviously taken her own adviceπŸ‘Š
