It’s been a year today since I’ve bought my house and what a whirlwind year it’s been!! So much has changed in this past year. I’ve grown so much and learned so much and now with my job coming to an end in August I’m forced into another adventure and through another door lol 😂 thanks Universe for always keeping me on my toes and pushing me to grow and learn. There’s never a dull moment in my life haha 🤣 #grateful #blessed #gratitude #traveler #adventure #explore #home #work #adulting #life #live #love #instagood #instalove #instalike #instamood

I'd like to share with you something a beautiful woman I knew, Wilma Friday (may she continue to RIP) shared with me that I'll never forget: "Good things ain't cheap and cheap things ain't good." 💜 I bathe in this truth daily as I continue the journey of #Adulting. You will [*potentially & eventually] get back what you pour out. Yeah, I put some *disclaimers on it cause it's not a quid pro quo type of deal. It's more like a 401k super pension. This is for the long-term. So please don't short-change yourself. Don't be stingy with your time; don't play cheap with things of great value; don't withhold honest feeling or invest a mere pittance in a treasured person & expect RICH💰returns. The universe just doesn't work like that. I know it's a bit of a gamble, and there is a potential for betting on the wrong horse. But trust-n-believe if you are wisely & diligently investing in that dream / career / loved one / business idea etc. it WILL PAY OFF. Yes it'll cost you something. But being miserly with your ambitions, your faith, your heart--- that'll cost you so much more. Believe that! P.S. I'm sure she also meant don't buy cheap clothes, well-made ones last longer; don't hire the cheapest contractor, you'll regret the subpar quality of the work & the shortcuts they will take; basically you get what you pay for and shit like that too. I just took that template and ran with it!!! 😆😆😆

Until today I owned 1 #handbag. A little #velvet cross body number. However after numerous outings at EVERY event that requires handbag, it was starting to look like it needed a break. Cue a minor meltdown about the notion of #shopping for a new one Off I toddle to #amazon and after about 5 minutes of looking. I spot this beauty. Well that's me done. New bag purchased. Im going to consider that a successful example of #adulting #dinosaur #loveit #fashion #itssocute

A true sign you’re an adult: not thinking about beaches or cookouts on Memorial Day, but getting stoked about appliance sales. A shiny new dishwasher is coming my way and I’m stoked! #loweshomeimprovement #adulting #dangimold

Today we were proper adults/parents/aunties. We sat on chairs & collected tickets for the Putt Putt stand at KJP Carnival Day while drinking tea & moaning about our aches & pains 🤣🙈 Deb was particularly frustrated by her tiny growing baby who kept sticking a body part into her pelvis 🤰🏼🤷🏼‍♀️ #twins #adulting #adultinghard #parenting #auntying #pregnancy #gettingold

One of the toughest things in adulting has been to work on my people management and leadership. It’s the aspect of my professional life that I think I suck the most at. Only sometimes my team are unspeakably cute and decide to demonstrate that they think I’m a pretty top boss after all. What they don’t realise is that I’m the lucky one because they’re all so easy to manage. • #flowers #roses #present #worklife #adulting #topboss #luckyboss #grateful #adultingishard

I was the ‘big lipped’ girl who struggled with her look because some kid pointed them out and it fuelled my insecurity. I was young and unsure of myself, & I vowed I would never wear lipstick because I didn’t want to draw any attention to myself . I hadn’t realised that other people’s words can shape my life if I haven’t shaped my own beliefs about myself . . The world is prepared to tell you who you are , what you should do and what you deserve but only you can break that chain by learning to love and accept yourself for who you are as you embark on the journey to discover who you were created to be . #selflove #selfconfidence #knowyourworth #shereadstruth
