I just got back from a long weekend in Sydney, which was awesome. The weather was perfect - blue skys and 22 degrees, a far cry from my beloved Melbourne, which was about...oh 14 degrees.

I've been to Sydney before and had a great time, but I never fell in love with the place. It's kind of like the beautiful friend who you love to party with but doesn't really have much depth. This time I saw more of Sydney's depth, and I liked it a bit more. But coming home to Melbourne was great. Melbs may not be as visually stunning as Sydney, but it's like the awesome friend who just keeps on surprising you with their awesomeness.

We were there to see MM9's final show *sob* and it was a ripper. Good times were had by all, and somehow we managed to meet every Melbournian in the room I think (so much for branching out!).

Now it's back to work and normal life. Currently I'm trying to wean myself off coffee in time for the live Below the Line Challenge next week. I caved and bought a coffee at 11am... This challenge will be harder than I thought! But I'm looking forward to it.

Now, on to some goodness! Things that are making me smile at the moment:
  • My wonderful fiance - he's the best
  • My new office with a view of some trees still with their Autumn leaves
  • Free music that can be downloaded to my phone - fark yeah! 
  • My friend who FINALLY quit her soul destroying job! Woohoo! 
  • Opportunities - there is so much potential in the world, and this is awesome.

Thank you, universe!

Sometimes I realise that yes, the universe is awesome and is looking after me. One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was to help make an effort to connect to my spirituality again, which has been lacking of late. And on my lunchtime walk to get some headphones for my run tonight, I spotted a sign in a store window which said 'Free Meditation', Thursday nights.

After creating a blog, posting once and then having some gremlins make it disappear (I think), here we are again!

Why am I creating a blog? Well, there are many reasons. One is that I am a blog whore and could quite happily read blogs all day - reading about new people, new styles, new ways of thinking, new places. It's pretty sweet. Also though, I want to create a blog that shows my journey. I am not perfect. I often take for granted the amazing things that I have in my life. I am not always where I want to be, or who I want to be. So let's change that.

This blog is the public account of my journey. My journey to becoming who I want to be. The journey of Radical Self Love, ala Ms Gala. The journey of not feeling scared or intimidated by life. The journey of making my life, and ideally the life of others, a little bit more awesome and beautiful.

I have grand plans of challenges I want to set myself and projects I want to do. Let's try doing something different and make it public and accountable. Of course, I gotta figure out what some of these challenges are though :-p But you know, baby steps.

Come join me under the ranga tree.
