Old Year’s Resolutions

Thought provoking post on NY’s Resolutions! There’s also an awesome poster/infographic that I absolutely love and am pinning it on my desk! πŸ˜‰

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to another journey around the sun; visualizing our new bodies πŸ‹πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ, soon-to-be bank accounts πŸ’΅, and super fulfilling love lives πŸ‘©πŸΎπŸ§”πŸΎ.

In anticipation for the new year, it would seem that we are trained to accentuate the positives. We want to frame our experiences and shape our personal narratives positively in the hopes of making them so.

In this world somethings must die in order to give rise to what must follow. So that others might live, and take their rightful place and priority in your life.

tenor Some habits, trips, and relationships can’t be manifested until their predecessors are trampled by a herd of wildebeest. (It was 1994, and it’sΒ stillΒ too soon πŸ˜”πŸ€­)

You can’t ghost πŸ‘» your real-life problems in favor of an idealized life that resetsΒ on January 1st. You can’t leave your lingering family/relationship issues on read or deactivate your adulthood…

2018 Kindness Practice| A Journey of Self-Love Through Kindness

Has is already been a year since 2017 May’s Kindness challenge?! 2018 challenge has been moved up to next month πŸ˜‰ eeeee! Don’t forget to sign up, it’s an awesome self discovery journey! =)

Niki Meadows

This year’s 3rd annual Kindness Practice is just around the corner! There are a couple of changes this year. It’sΒ going to be held in February instead of May this year. It’s also going to be hosted via email instead of through my blog. The journey is very intimate for participants and I felt led to offer guidance and support in a more personal way. If you’ve never participated, you can find the details below. I’m excited to welcome first-time participants and returning ones alike. This is going to be a powerful 7-week guided practice!

2018Kindness Practice

I’m so honored to be able to guide and accompany you on this journey. Sending lots of love your way!

2018 New Year Resolutions – Part 1

New Year Resolutions 2018

2017 was a rough year of transition – ending the year with a bang. Me on NYE? Was pretty unforgettable. 2016 was the complete polar opposite. I was at my Youth Pastor’s house ringing in the New Year with their close friends. Never mind I had an introvert hangover (yes those are real! Just read IntrovertDear for proof) and pretty much missed the NYE fireworks!

Unibookworm’s 2017 snapshot ;)

2017 has been a relatively quiet year blogging wise πŸ˜‰ and I already can’t wait to get writing again with 2018. With so many ideas and stories to share, it’s going to be amazing πŸ˜‰ Shout out to Milanote- my new favourite website to store my blog ideas. I would be totally lost without it =) If only there was an app, that would be awesome. Till then Trello will be here to save the day!

Long Distance Relationship uppage playlist


What people don’t tell you about long distance relationships is how much an emotional roller coaster it really is. There will be days where you’re the headstrong driven go-getter kicking goals while saying with a smile, I’m totally fine! I miss them [SO], but I’ll be fine.*
*and me being a logical person that was me for the first 3 months! I have a tendency for delayed emotional reactions. Read the rest of this entry »


Finders Keepers exploration =)

Going to any design market makes me realise how talented artsy people are πŸ˜‰ The moment you embark into the Royal Exhibition building, you seriously have no idea where to look! The twinkling lights, the colours, the hustle and bustle of storekeepers and customers chit chatting against the backdrop of good food, really inspired me =)

The Sun & The Moon Best Friends

My awesome guy best friend’s visit ended today πŸ˜… And to remind myself that it’s not all doom and gloom… I published a short story I wrote late last year! (inspired by our long distance friendship!). P.S: Of course I draw parallels to Cecelia’s Ahern, When Rainbows end- story of Rosie & Alex to our friendship. But turns out we beat them!

They were only 4, 806km away (Dublin to Boston), 7 hrs in flight time & 5 hrs in time difference! So lucky. For us it’s 11,358km (Middle East to Australia), 17 hrs in flight & 7hrs (in non daylight savings) apart 😱. Not only that, Rosie & Alex could call and visit whenever. While for us, that luxury doesn’t exist!

But honestly? The distance has made our friendship bond stronger than I have ever had with anyone. To the point where it doesn’t matter if we don’t talk every day or that we barely get to see each other, it will always be the same πŸ˜‰ nothing will ever change. ❀

Happy readings ;)!
