There is lots of awesomeness tucked into this post:

26 July 2013

I have been experiencing writers block around these parts lately. Could you tell? It sucks and is rather confusing for someone who usually always has something useless awesome to chat on and on and on about.
I even text my sister this morning to ask what to talk about.
She suggested potatoes.
Honestly Tash.
So instead of potatoes (mashed are my favourite kind by the way) I am going to share a few of my favourite internet spaces and favourite thoughts that have been crowding out my brain space lately.
^ This wins the internet and perked me right up this morning. Thank you Claire for sharing.
^ Money was the subject of my most recent coaching session. Lots and lots of work to do there. Do you struggle to find Enoughness too?
^ A 7am commute is about a gazillion times better than an 8am commute. Case and point, free seats:
^ Wellness websites that I think are amazeballs:
Danielle LaPorte's words always leave me speechless. Especially these words that I found over here:
So many people are looking for it: their big life purpose.
Becoming YOU is your purpose. You’re the very purpose of your existence. Realising what lights your fire and floats your boat—THAT’s your life purpose. What else could it be?
If it gives you true joy (not the seemingly happy-high that is fleeting, but the reliable, always-there kind of satisfaction) to…grow a family or a garden; to help people feel powerful…whether by fuelling their bank accounts or working their bodies or writing their stories; to make people laugh, to commune with nature, to make things a little more beautiful wherever you go; to feed; to stir it up, to clean it up, to look on the bright side; compassionate citizenry, non-stop exploration, or pure pleasure-seeking…then, by God, that’s your life purpose!
Your life purpose is what you say it is.
Who could tell you otherwise?
^ I sweated my ass off to the first 35minutes of this yoga class last night. I spent the rest of the class in Savasana, because sometimes you have just got to.
^ Giggles and truth:
^ Dream apartment right here.
^ I may or may not have spent hours on this website the other day. Okay okay, I totally did.
^ Favourite quote:
"Whatever the present moment contains, accept is as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life." - Eckhart Tolle
^ I have a serious thing for ripped jeans. Hurrah for airy conditioned jeans in the summer:
^ Story of my life.
^ I have super talented friends. So proud of my Susan!
^ I got about 90% of the way into this pose in yoga class last week. I honestly nearly burst with pride. Forgetting how far you have come happens to us all I suppose.
Writers block? Conquered.

  3. Haha, I loved this. Especially good old Britters up there, what a ledge (the kind that is short for legend, not the kind you find on a window.)

    Writers block has smacked me right between the eyes this week - always happens to me after a really good blogging week. I'll feel great and breezy and then bam! No words. Sigh sigh sigh, at least we'll always have paris x

  6. egh I need to take a look at some of those wellness websites and spend time on the tiny buddha one, i'm a bit of a grouch atm, plus a few tips on your journalling wouldn't go amiss. x

  7. I thoroughly enjoyed your list, made me laugh too. That Britney gif is amazing and the "how to get a bikini body" img is too awesome. I sent it to all the girls in my office lol

    The cats have me giggling, sent them to my husband - he will love them. he has a weak spot for internet cats.

    90% into that pose! Wow! That is fabulous! Me? Hmmm? .01%. Maybe. :)
