Golden Syrup & Butter

I know this is silly, but I’m really grateful for Golden Syrup and Butter on Fried Scones. Is it worth a grateful post? Hell yes. It’s awesome and I love it.

I’m grateful to parkrun

It doesn’t cost anything to put on a pair of sneakers and go for a walk. Off you go …. go on .. .what’s stopping you?

Doing it by yourself doesn’t always get you out there and doing it does it? Some people are fantastic at being completely self-driven, others – like me – not so much.

What’s in store for 2020?

I started this post writing a list of things I wanted to achieve – a simple check-off list (see below) that I could re-read in December, but the post pivoted to thinking more about the world we live in, and reflecting on how I function in it.

JIG

JIG = jealousy, insecurity, greed

I didn’t coin this term, but I’m increasingly seeing it in different places. And I’ve probably been guilty of it as well.

I understand why we see it – often because people are fighting for scraps. But when that’s not the case, we really need to keep ourselves in check – know our why, make sure we have all the information before we judge, recognise you don’t know everything that a person has gone through, and ask ourselves what can we do to change a situation instead of just growling at the people who I should be working with.

Nyumba – it’s where it all started.

In my last year at university in 1993, I had no idea what I wanted to for a career. I was majoring in public policy so a public servant job was probably on the cards. But I didn’t really know what that meant.

Outstanding Entrepreneurial Alumnus Award (2019)

Tonight I attended the Griffith Business School’s annual Alumni dinner and was awarded the 2019 Griffith Business School Outstanding Entrepreneurial Alumnus Award. To say I was surprised is an understatement.

My first Sleep Pod experience.

I landed in Perth at around 12.30 Monday night. My connecting flight to Kalgoorlie was at 6.30am. By the time I got luggage, and then arrived at a hotel (or friends house) I’d lay down, I’d then be on the move back to the airport.

When nature is the medicine you need.

My to-do list is just ridiculous.

My business is growing and my community volunteer work is coming to a head. I’m so grateful for the business opportunities I have and my community work is something I can’t imagine ever not doing.

52 Hikes 52 Weeks

So this year – the year I turned 50 – I set myself a target to complete the 52 Hikes in 52 Weeks challenge.

I started well but dipped in the middle of the year because of work. I’m hoping I can double up a few hikes in the next few months to get me back on track. I know doubling-up defeats the purpose – taking time out each week to get out into nature – but I am keen to get to the end of the year exploring South East Queensland.
