Goodies From Houston, Texas!

Hello loves, ❤

Blogs flying all over the place today – 3 blogs and its not even 11:30am. WOO! I am on a roll today (Plus juggling a busy work schedule) I always save time to blog ❤

I got a delivery at work this morning, SUPER EXCITING! I love DELIVERIES! And, it was a lovely delivery from Carly from My Ink Smears, be sure to check out her page 🙂
Carly is from Houston, Texas which is LITERALLY on the other side of the world to me.

Carly & I have been in discussion since before Christmas to do a blog/vlog on food from the opposite side of the world 🙂 April has come & we are both at a good time to now be able to send this to one another 🙂

4E15424D-A8EA-4903-9DB8-4C54BF3B2309

Carly sent me Apple Jacks, Cheez-It’s & Twinkies.
I have never tried these 3 things ever, so I am SO excited to try these.
I will possibly do a blog/vlog over the weekend on me trying these.

In return, I will be sending Carly some Australian goodies (I can’t share as it’s a surprise for her, so once she receives them, I can share what they are) Also, once Carly does her blog/vlog I can re-blog it onto my page & you can see her trying the Australian stuff for the first time 🙂

Be sure to stay tuned on me trying goodies from Houston, Texas 🙂

Has anyone else ever tried them? Am I in for a treat?
Also, any recommendations on what I should encourage Carly to try from Australia?

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

But, I Can Love Myself

Hello loves, ❤

Honestly, this is me realizing that I can’t make you love me. I can’t make you see in me what I thought I saw in you for so long. And I’m done trying, done hoping, done waiting. I’m done.

I don’t want love that is forced. I don’t want forced attraction. If something is lacking or simply isn’t there, I don’t want it. I don’t want you to see the good in me and think I’m logically the best choice for you, think that I am someone you should try to be with, and then attempt to create something that is unnatural and clearly not meant to be. 

I don’t want an “us” when there isn’t supposed to be one. Sometimes it’s best that the purpose we serve in each other’s lives is simply friendship, and sometimes the purpose is nothing at all. Just because you meet someone who seems great, it doesn’t mean that you have to entertain a relationship or even the idea of a relationship with them. Sometimes you meet a good person and it’s just an affirmation that good people still exist.

I don’t want to be with someone who can’t love me for my flaws, can’t appreciate the fire I had to go through to get to where I’m at today, is incapable of supporting and encouraging my passions, someone who can’t even be true to himself. This is the someone who maybe just loves the idea of me. The someone who sees me as a prize to be won. He’s also the someone who is never sure, the someone who has wandering eyes, the someone who can’t get the “grass is always greener” thought out of his head.

I can’t make you love me…nor would I want to. I wouldn’t want to try so hard at creating something that isn’t supposed to be.

Love and relationships cannot be forced. Love is hard work. It’s giving wholeheartedly, it’s transparency and vulnerability, it’s accepting the good with the bad, and it’s understanding that there are never any guarantees.

The truth is, the love you’ll put the most work into is the love you have for yourself. Because sometimes you have to go through the lowest lows, the internal battles, the dark times, to finally achieve that self love. And when you do, it’s something that you will not compromise for anyone else, no matter how much you may think you love them. The man who lacks depth and ability to appreciate the struggles you’ve overcome to get to where you are, the man who can’t even make up his mind about you, the man who wants you only on his own terms, is a man you are better without.

At the end of the day, if you don’t love yourself, you can’t truly love another person. The same way you can’t expect them to love you wholeheartedly if you don’t even love yourself that way.

The only certainty any of us have when it comes to love, is self-love. And while I will never try to make someone love me, the one thing I can make sure of is that I will always love myself.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Hello loves, ❤

How is everyone doing this fine Wednesday? (It’s Wednesday here in Sydney, Australia)

I’ve been feeling GREAT this week, experienced a bit of a hiccup last week & felt really down, but HEY, I am human & we all feel this way at times.

I can admit that when you are down, if you don’t pick yourself back up you will only dig the hole deeper.

I’ve been forcing myself to the gym this week, it’s been so hard bc we had to change our clocks so now when I get off the train at night its PITCH BLACK so all I want to do is go home, shower, do a face mask & go to bed, haha. BUT… I’ve been driving to the gym, going in, getting changed THEN… I am fine. (I think getting there if HALF my problem)

I’ve tried hard this week to push myself at the gym to, pushing myself out of my comfort zone with new exercises & increased weight with certain exercises.

My FAVOURITE youtuber of all time, Sarahs Day is going to be at the Sydney Fitness Expo on the weekend & I AM SO EXCITED! Bc I really want to meet her! She only lives like an hour from me in Cronulla, Sydney & I also just want tot go there in hope I’ll randomly meet her on he beach. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HER!

Here we are, adding 1000 more views to the bag! 71,000 VIEWS! Thank the lord for all you beautiful people ❤ I am so grateful for all your support 🙂

Thank you to the below people that have re-blogged my work:

I’ve received a fair few emails over the past month from lovely people here on my blog asking, will I ever make a youtube channel?
Youtube is a BIG thing! It’s a commitment, it’s a full time job, & it’s a big step out of my comfort zone being behind a camera (Selfies are fine, but videoing is HARD!)
I am not saying I wouldn’t do it, I am always up for a challenge but I don’t even know where to begin.
Maybe it’s something I can look into! WATCH THIS SPACE, haha 😛

I pray everyones week has been lovely so far & you are all enjoying your day ❤

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
