This Very Moment

5 Apr

When someone walks right into your life, completely unexpected and they are everything you are wanting, needing and have been searching for.

They are the reason you smile, the reason you want to be a better version of yourself and the person you think of when you think about the future.

Then very quickly they are in your bed and at the exact moment you are feeling so much love for who they are they say ‘I love you’ and the whole world melts away.

I feel different. My heart isn’t beating the same.

It has been far too long since I’ve posted and to be honest I’ve missed it!

Rather than try to recount the last 6+ months lets just pick up from the present moment.

  • I am living in Southbank in the same apartment complex I lived in (and loved) before I moved to Berlin.
  • I am still working full time in a Finance role in the CBD. It’s so pleasant walking to work each morning rather than the 1+ hour commute.
  • I am still studying the CPA Program
  • I haven’t been on a holiday in too long but am planning a couple right now
  • My cat Binx is not living with me yet but he will move in soon
  • Still focusing on yoga, running and maintaining good health with sleep, healthy foods, vitamins etc.
  • Trying to ensure I catch up with friends at least twice a week and also make time to see a certain boy who makes me really happy
  • Learning new things every week and more determined than ever to make my dreams happen!!

 

So there you have it and here are some pictures that capture the above info.

❤ to you.

Life update: I recently started a new job as Finance Manager for a global tech company. I am so incredibly thankful for this opportunity and I know that the universe was listening to me all along! I spent months apply for jobs knowing that the right one was out there for me and I really didn’t want to settle for less. I even applied for a temporary collections role and thought I would have to do something like that just to get by while searching for my dream job but my dream job came along right in time in June 2016.

Just a few months ago I had returned to Melbourne from living in Berlin for over 1 year. I was in debt, on centrelink, in poor health, unemployed, living with my parents again, feeling pretty low and honestly struggled to find a reason to get out of bed most days. It was a really awful time in my life and I kept telling myself that things would be easier and improve with time. I never regretted coming home, I knew this was where I needed to be to make the next step forward with my life and achieve those goals I had set out for myself. Flash forward and I am happily employed, earning more money than ever before, I am officially studying the CPA Program, I recently completed my first Half-Marathon run, I’m in good health and I am taking steps to improve my life further. I am saying this in hopes that if you ever find yourself in that same position, with very little to hold on to other than your sense of self worth and your faith in the universe please know that what you seek is seeking you. Everything happens for a reason ❤

Happiness  –

At present the things that make me happy are: Taking good care of myself, my cat, cleaning my home, Pinterest, Yoga, Being in the CBD, catching up with friends, reading, feeling motivated, re-watching Veronica Mars, creating a Vision Board full of my goals, dancing around my room, going to shows, focusing on the good things in my life, the cooler weather we are having and being kind to myself.

My current life situation hasn’t really changed, I’m not where I want to be but every night I say out loud what I am grateful for. Things could be a lot worse, and I am confident that great things are coming my way. Now is just that icky in-between phase of life. Through my spiritual learning I know that the Universe has my back and everything is going to be okay.

Health – 

In April I finally got a blood test. I hadn’t had my levels checked in over 1 and a half years so figured something might be low. Particularly because it was un-monitored and because I wasn’t the best at taking supplements in Germany (would often go 3+ months without any).  Turns out my Iron levels were very low, a number 9. I hope this explains why I’ve been sleeping so much, feeling down and just generally lacking energy.

The following week I had an iron infusion via IV drip. The process only took 10-15 minutes but I was at the doctors for about an hour. Immediately afterwards I felt my shoulder area go tingly then numb. Later in the day my heart felt a little uncomfortable like it was beating faster than usual. Within a day or two I was feeling a lot better. Because body and mind are so strongly linked I really believe that my body was functioning better therefore my mind including mood and thoughts also improved.  I am now taking a daily Iron supplement with Vitamin C and will check my levels again in 6 months to ensure they are where they should be (around 30-40).

Exercise has been extremely important to keeping my mind clear, positive and sharp. I’ve been going to Yoga classes once or twice per week for about 2 months now and am running several times a week.

Love – 

Nothing much to report here. I haven’t hooked up with anyone in a long time. A few men from the past have messaged lately typically saying something about missing my body, which is a sure way of ensuring they will never get to hold it again. I would love to have a partner in crime, but I’m certainly not looking for one or even trying to get anyone’s attention. I have a lot more important things going on right now but if someone great comes into my life I would be happy to go all in for them 🙂

 

Dreams – 

I don’t know about you, but I need to have dreams and know what I’m working towards. Without that direction I can feel so lost and just waste months doing nothing. ‘If you honor your Dreams they will be honored!’

Running: I have been training hard and will run my first ever Half-marathon on July 24th 2016. I’m feeling really good about it and know that I can do it! I can’t wait to receive that Finishers Medal and know that my body is capable of so much more than I thought.

Career: I’m not working right now, but I know that the perfect job for me is coming. I’m learning to be patient and trust the timing of my life. I’ve also applied to begin the CPA Program this year. If it is approved I will begin my studies in August. Being a CPA (Certified Practicing Accountant) is a huge goal of mine and I’m really excited to get started.

Travel: Once I am working full time again I would like to move out of my parents house, start up a share portfolio and of course travel. Right now I’m thinking about a few days on the Gold Coast in Queensland, 3 weeks in New Zealand and roughly 10 days in Mauritius. I can probably do that during 2016-2017 but I guess it will happen when it happens. I’m still very much planning to move to Toronto, Canada but it will be at the right time. I suspect it will be once I’ve completed my CPA studies, although I know I can continue my studies while abroad.

I just feel so blessed because all of my dreams and hopes for the future are totally achievable. It would be nice to have someone by my side on all these future adventures I’ll admit but I am all that I need, I am complete…. another person would just increase my happiness.
