Gearing up the backpacks tonight! 💫 🏝 We are setting off for the beach with double the kiwi and double the South African. Our girl squad is ready for some relaxation and some celebrating because we have a birthday girl in the house! 💖 Aloha Friday 🌞 Have a lovely day everyone 🌸 #travel#thailand#thailandtravel#kohlarn#beach
2019 is a year for massive change. A year for setting goals and creating plans to accomplish them. With all this effort in personal development I became so focused and still am with a slight obsession, of who I was becoming and who I want to become. For the goals I want to achieve, one of the things I focused on was/is building a strong mindset and maintaining one too! During the application of this, I found my self very serious about it. In a way that I wasn’t aware that I had stopped doing something I enjoy daily. Which is simply listening to music 🤩 Moving forward 💫 Here’s a small reminder to have fun along the journey to our dreams and goals and not take it too seriously that we cut out the simple and daily fun in our lives.
Grateful to have a beautiful island about an hour away from Bangkok! If Bangkok is a destination you ever meet, Koh Larn and Koh Samet are two very close islands near the big city. Get yourself to Ekkamai bus station, buy your ticket for a seat on the big bus or mini van and be on your way to the sand, sun and sea 🏝 It’s a more affordable option than the taxi, especially if your travel team is small 👯♀️ ~ Sharing 1 minute of Koh Larn, Megan and I with you. 🌞❤️ ~
Checked the go pro. Excited to find some happy days and sun rays captured with my weekend traveler! We spent a couple of days enjoying Koh Larn. Got a couple of videos and a handful of photos. 🤘 I’ll be mixing them up together to share in one video. 😁 I’d love to get great at making videos and share more travels in the future. So here’s a start in that direction! I am grateful for for my camera, allowing me to capture and create! It was gifted from my work family. A very generous and thoughtful send off gift that has a snug spot in the backpack. 🤗❤️
Burnt as heck. 🤦🏽♀️ So I’m blocked up as heck. Dirty from cracking this coconut open. And, loving the long life of this ol’ coconut. Speaking of looooving. Loving our sunny and hot Monday in Thailand 🌟 I’m looking forward to making Monday’s more and more lovable as I become more involved in the work I aspire to do every day! Fresh week, fresh morning and thankful for our Monday 🤘🤩
Lifelong goal 🌟 Near the closing of 2018, I chose to make some life changes. Changes that will make me better. Changes that will build my confidence. Changes that will build strength. Changes that will increase a better outlook on life. Changes to create a better mindset. Personal changes to better myself, for others and I too... I will continue to implement change in 2019 and beyond ! Because that is what will contribute to my lifelong goal. The goal of becoming one heck of a human and one heck of a woman. 😁 I am grateful for opportunities and change. Change we decide on and unexpected change we can grow from ❤️
Starting a journal 💫 At the end of last year I started writing. I had been gifted a journal from a lovely friend of mine. For the next two weeks, I was passionately inking up the pages and before you know it I was at the scalp of the book. I wrote everything in it. What I’m grateful for, ideas, positive thoughts, negative thoughts to question. I wrote about my journeys, experiences, my feelings and emotions... It became a great pen to paper conversation between me, myself and I. It’s now very well used. SO, new journal here! Magical timing! New year... new journal! Today I am grateful for my book of thoughts!! It takes my boatload of boringness or...brilliance. My journal allows me to express, release and create.
This is a really great day! 2018 is coming to an end and I want to say a huge thank you to what has been such a great year. A year packed of learning, growth, strength, travel and experience. LIFE is wonderful and I’m thankful for mine! Let’s celebrate our year and welcome the next! ❤️🙌 What are you going to DO, what are you going to CHANGE for your life? A better life. 👊💥
Treasure people’s crafts ❤️ It’s so satisfying purchasing creations from someone who has poured their time, passion and effort into. I met a man called Dam. We conversed in Thai and English. My head grew because he gave me so much good praise for my Thai. So, I showed off a little bit more of what I knew in my half second language. 😅 We continued to chat and laugh. And with Dams keen product selling skills, I walked away with Dams beautiful hammock. I thank people like Dam who proudly share their creativity and talent with us. Thank you to people like Dam for selling your crafts for others to enjoy 🙌 Happy Sunday from Thailand!
First read in years! Didn’t think I liked reading but here’s to finishing this book in less than a week 😁 I laughed and learned. Mainly laughed because of what I related to and couldn’t admit it’s true. Until now 👀 I was so happy to be actually enjoying reading, as soon as I finished this book, 3 new books were added to personal library. Get your stack on 📚
I’m going vegan 🌱 👀 3 weeks ago I became a vegetarian and the past 2 months I have been very consistent with my exercise. I made sure I was aware of how my body felt after I stopped eating meat. After the switch, I felt stronger with more energy and it made me more excited to work out. I’m on a new journey of reaching great health! Whatever I learn that can help me reach that, I immediately want to make whatever it is a part of how I live. I’m not trying to convince people to eat as a vegan/vegetarian. This is how my very short experience of becoming a vegetarian has been. And this documentary called ‘What the health’ has greatly influenced my decision on switching to a now vegan diet! I thought it was great to share. It’s very interesting and it will be even more interesting to see what you decide to keep eating after watching. So here is me all jolly about what I’ll be snacking on this week! 😄👌P.s. You can find the documentary on Netflix 👍
TAKE ACTION 💥 My best, biggest and most favourite goal. I made this goal for my self two months ago. I’ve applied this to absolutely everything. It trickles down to the most smallest of things to take action on. And that’s so important because it starts with the smallest and slightest change of what you take action on and sets you up for taking action on the biggest problems. You get so used to overcoming problematic situations that when something big pops up, you’ve gained this great habit of taking action! Straight away your mind instantly searches for a solution. And at that point, you can CHOOSE do what needs to be done. Solve the problem. Become an obsessive problem solver! Don’t wallow over problems take action over them! 👊🙌 This take action goal is a new one that I am going to achieve on the daily for the rest of my life! Just to add on that! When making goals, think of what goals you want to attain for LIFE, to have a BETTER life. When it ticks over to 2019 Let’s have our goals in place 🙌❤️ HAPPY WEDNESDAY 😁💖🙌

5 days a week I cross this bridge! EVERYDAY she greets us with fierce fiery beauty! It’s one of my favourite things I look forward to in the morning! • I walk in awe across this bridge and this conversation takes over my mind.. • Good morning, I’m ready, I’m thankful and I’ll see YOU tomorrow! 🌞 • It’s like the cherrie on top to my morning routine 🤩 • P.s. I had to share this one. Here’s a little video. She was looking so great and it got me stepping back and shouting a startling “WOO” 🤣.
