Nothing sets the tone for a great week better than a hefty dose of gratitude, so I’ve decided to kick off my Monday mornings with a dash of magic, reflecting on the moments, peeps and projects making me smile over the weekend!

Being a part of something I believe in

I’ve mentioned on Facebook before how much I friggen love my job, but I am going to say it again. I love my job! Being the 2IC at Paleo Café here in Townsville has me totally immersed in positive vibes all day long, and it is so rewarding to constantly be in the company of people who thrive on looking after themselves and nourishing their bodies. I am seriously in my element, 24/7!

My slowly-emerging green thumb

I've never had a garden; never even had a successful pot of herbs before in my life. But Im determined to one day have my very own, full-blown vegie garden so I've taken a small step towards this dream and set up my own little balcony worm farm on the weekend! I’m all set with my little planter box, and select few herbs, tomatoes and greens still to be planted, but before I do I want to ensure I've got the liquid gold to help my garden thrive and what better way to do that than my own little worm farm. I’m so excited to see how it all goes, and start feeding it all my veggie scraps and juicing leftovers. One thing I certainly missed whilst overseas was knowing where my food came from, so now having a home base and staying put in one place, I am certainly trying to do my bit to grow what I can. There is just something so satisfying about bringing something to life, and nurturing it as it grows and thrives.

Sunday lovin’

Prepin the slow cooker with fresh farmers market finds for a Sunday night feast, playground hangs with my neice and nephew, helping the boyfie take some fire twirling shots down at the beach after sunset – all these magical moments that make up a killer Sunday. Aren’t Sundays just the best day ever!

Gettin' bendy

I have really committed to stretching my body everyday recently, and I am already noticing a huge difference. By upping my yoga practice, stretching first thing in the morning and whilst at home, I am feeling stronger and just that little bit more flexible. It can sometimes feel like those little commitments, like stretching for 10min a day, are really not going to make any difference and hardly worth it – but it's so rewarding to see the results when you stick with it and keep the ball rolling. My back bends are happening with ease, my handstands going strong.. Feelin' like a million bucks!

 

 

Long, fun-filled convos across the country

No matter how far apart we are, I know I can always rely on my bestie for a warm dose of laughter and connection. Thank heavens for technology, bringing the sweet voices of loved ones to our ears, wherever we are in the world!

So with the weekend done and dusted, it’s time to shift our focus to the present moment and carry on these good vibes to the week that lies ahead. How do you want this week to play out? What’s feeding you right now? What feelings are you craving in your life at this present moment? Declare it, set your intention and attract that good juju into your world like nobody’s business!

 

My intention for this week is to get stuck into another crazy good guest interview for you, and get moving on a little e-book that I have in the pipeline, which will be all yours (for free!) as soon as it’s done. Plenty of goodness coming your way!

 

Let me know in the comments below whatis driving you this week to help you stay accountable. The world is your oyster baby, spread that gratitude like wildfire and allow it to open your heart and mind to all the possibilities.

 

Have a glorious Monday lovers!
