Dee’s Delights

A very happy Tuesday evening to you!  Welcome to this weeks Dee’s Delights.  I hope you’ve had a fabulous week…I certainly have!  So much great stuff going on at the moment, so I’ll get right down to it and share some of the happy highlights…

Walk:  This magical sky captured on a beautiful afternoon walk.

Work: maa organics website.  I did it! I started! That’s the main thing right?!  It’s evolving as we speak.

Work: massages in the peaceful Julatten Studio and the Daintree Rainforest…does it get any better?

B-School: I’ve met, messaged and spoken to some amazing women who are enrolled in B-School!  And now have two mega-inspiring ladies as accountability partners who I’ll be keeping in regular contact with.  We’ll be updating each other on our goals and progress as we make our way through the course.  Very exciting indeed!  And lots of goodies from the Path To Wellness for signing up through their link…thank you thank you thank you!

And it all began today!  YAY!!!  all downloaded and ready to go!

On a little disappointing note, I didn’t win the scholarship to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.  A big congrats to the lucky lady who won.  It’s obviously not quite the right time for me yet, but I will find a way to do it.  I found out today that they often offer discounted prices – a big plus and something to keep my eye out for!

Hair Cut: by the lovely Jennifer Campbell.  Just a little trim and tidy up as the growing project continues!  It feels like it’s gradually getting there, even had some comments lately about how it looks longer!

Weekend  Away Wardrobe Planning: Help! Autumn! Just how cold is it going to be? I can almost hear some of you laughing at that…anything under 25 degrees Celsius is cold for me.  Hmmm, maybe I should pack my winter coat after all! And I do need some closed in shoes!…will have to pack my boots just in case!

and other decadent delights… coconut water  – blueberries – feeling honoured – phone catchups – Canberra connections – purring pussycats – new magazines and positive thoughts.

And from Pinterest this week, a reminder of just how wonderful you are…

A huge happy hello to you!  Another amazing week has passed us by, full of fabulousness for you too I hope!

✾   ✾   ✾   ✾   ✾

Here’s some happy highlights

A day in Cairns…lots of little errands for work, a nice lunch and new car research 🙂 

Massages, manis, pedis and hot stone massages!  Getting busier on the treatment side of things as well as developing business plans, long and short term…ideas popping into that busy little mind of mine everyday.  I’m so looking forward to the future here…melding everything together to form my unique organic online business with some face to face goodness thrown in too.  You’ll be hearing more about this as things progress – yay!!!

A super quick catch-up with a friend…sometimes it’s nice just to see one one of your fave people if only for a passing drop-in!

A lovely night cooking dinner for friends at our place…great food (even if I do say so myself!) and the best company!  Perfect start to the weekend!

Lots of green goodness from the kitchen…

Sparkly candles and crystals and blurry abstract images…

Lunch yesterday at The Junction Cafe in Mossman…so nice to relax with Andrew.  Not to mention great pasta!

Getting ready for B-School…yay!  And new connections with some a-mazing women!

Organising a long weekend in our soon to be new home, Canberra!  And realising autumn does exist in some parts of the country!!!!  Help, what clothes do I take?  And shoes?  OMG!!!!

and other decadent delights…blueberries – hugs – inspiring blog reading – e-books – cleaning and organising – saying no – clary sage and kookaburras.

Leaping Out Of My Comfort Zone

Dream Big

Recently I took, not just a step, but a big leap out of my comfort zone.  I thought about all the ways I could fall and hurt myself, I had all the usual excuses, some valid some not and I still did it.

What did I do? you might be wondering…I enrolled in Marie Forleo’s B-School program.  Is that such a big deal I hear you ask?  Well, yes, for me it is.   It’s a huge step towards creating the life I want.  I’m as nervous as can be, I feel unsure and scared (almost to the point of tears at times!)  But the important thing is I’ve taken that step, made that commitment to myself.

Discomfort = Change = A better version of YOU!

It feels like such a big deal for me because while I’ve always done whatever I do to the absolute best of my ability,  I’ve never really taken the steps to stand out and shine or to become the very best version of me.  I’ve lacked confidence and believed I could never be in the same league as all those other gorgeous women out there – my “real life” friends (you know who you are lovelies) and those I follow online (you may also know who you are!…see below for some examples!).

However, lately my inner voice has been nagging me to put myself out there more.  To feel the fear and do it anyway!!!  It hasn’t happened overnight though, it’s been a gradual process to get to this point where I can be brave enough to enrol in B-school and to publish this post!  In the last 10 years I’ve moved states, made new lifetime friends, opened a business, developed an organic product line, started this blog and I’m about to make another big move interstate.  All these things have helped me build my confidence, as well as having the most supportive husband I could ever wish for.

So if you’re reading this and think you can’t do it, think again.  YOU CAN DO IT!  I was once the girl who barely spoke at a social occasion, so if I can do it there is no reason why you can’t.  Don’t worry about all those successful people who are already killing it…they are there for inspiration and most of them will offer you help if you dare to ask!  Go for dreams, allow yourself to be passionate, love what you’re doing and live it to the fullest.  These words are just as much for me as they are for you!

B-School hasn’t even officially begun and I’ve already met the most inspiring women of all ages who are taking that next step in creating and expanding their dream life.  They are from all backgrounds and ages…you’re never to young or too old to start!

I’m not writing this post to encourage you to join B-School although you really should check it out to see if it’s for you! (enrolments close on the 4th March).  I’m writing it to improve my courage and confidence and hopefully help give you a push towards doing the same!

If you do happen to be interested in B-School these beautiful ladies have some fantastic deals if you sign up through them.  By the way, they haven’t asked me to promote them and I don’t receive anything in return.  I just love what these girls do on a daily basis.  I decided to sign up through Path To Wellness because I get the chance to win a scholarship to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, which I am hanging out so badly to do!  Cross your finger and toes for me 🙂

Whatever you’re doing, remember to enjoy the ride!

Howdy everyone!  Welcome to Dee’s Delights, my weekly post of life’s little wonders.  It’s been a beautiful and busy week here, getting lots done and feeling great.  Hope it’s been the same for you.

Here’s some happy highlights

I booked a little holiday – yay! 10 days off and a long weekend Canberra.  I’m very much looking forward to a little break and doing some more research into our big move plus enjoying the city, eating out,  walking and exploring, visiting Zaija and generally getting the feel of our new hometown!

Enrolling in B-School. O.M.G!!! I did it. There was part of me that didn’t think I would actually press that “enrol now” button, but I pushed aside my fears and I did it…GULP! Feeling very nervous but excited and I’ve already done a couple of things I wouldn’t have thought I could!

Watching B-School bonus videos.  Some time scheduling, organising, prioritising, note taking and confidence affirmations!

Lots of massage clients this week.  I’m so grateful to be able to do what I love!  And work with a fabulous-o therapist who just gets it!!!

I renewed my Senior First Aid Course.  A very long day in Cairns…say no more!

Birthday drinks and tapas for a very dear friend at Salsa.  What a lovely way to spend a tropical Sunday afternoon.  Caught up with lots of lovely ladies I haven’t seen for a while.  Yay for friendship, laughs, relaxation and sunshine.

A Monday at home.  A lovely sleep in, B-School review, week ahead planning, a nice long walk, spray tan and pedi.

I read Melissa Ambrosini’s e-book, 12 Steps to Wellness and loved it.  You can check it out here.  So much great advice!

and other decadent delights…walking – fresh fruit – coffee Wild Sister –  the radio – new friendships and planning my holiday wardrobe!
