I love this opening quote to kick off week 1: Acceptance. It’s a mantra that I’ve always resonated with when life doesn’t go to plan and believe me it always never does.

Winter musings

Winter musings

This post was originally written at the end of June but got postponed in till now for personal reasons. Spring is here now and so are the writing days 😉 here’s to brighter brand new beginnings and adventures ahead!

It’s been a whirl wind in the last 6 months of 2019, that I simply can’t comprehend that July is yet again almost among us. Between moving back home and trying to settle back in with parents while still maintaining some sense of independence and living at home as a young adult after the last 2 years of being on my own; starting a new job in the Deaf and hard of hearing community; dealing with all the fun long commutes to and from work; juggling uni, church all while being a semi long distance relationship (we’re in the same city) – it’s no wonder why I had barely any chance to write.

A Christmas memory a day =) – December blog challenge

Xmas challenge

After scouring  the web for a worthy and realistic Christmas blogging challenge – one which I could actually do in 21 days, my results were a null.  There were in fact many artsy and creative ones like the 12 months of Christmas Link Up (crafters are one talented bunch) but nothing that really fit my alley. Till I pondered what would be the perfect Christmas challenge would entail.

#1. Always be kind

Always be kind

Cause in life you will come across some people for no rational reason is taking out their negativity on you even when it has absolutely nothing to do with you.

One of my guy colleagues asked me recently; how do I manage to work in a male dominated industry as a female and cope with all the incoming demands being in the customer service centred project role? And still remain smiley and optimistic? 😉

My answer. ❤ & Grace.
