My face when I don’t know what to do now that the marshmallow has caught fire … chilly nights call for thermals (@xtm_performance ), log fires and toasted marshmallows @parrybeachbreaks I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who offered me some kind words or advice over the past few days. I have come to understand that recent events have surfaced old wounds that I had pushed down, and this is my chance to finally heal them so that they can’t hurt me again. Our weaknesses serve as our greatest strengths.
“You don’t drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there” ~Edwin Louis Cole~ Currently trying to regain control of my mind because I truly am torturing myself and drowning in my thoughts; the curse of an over thinker. I’ve tried avoidance, distraction, meditation, exercise, nothing is working! Any tips would be greatly appreciated! What I wouldn’t give to be back carefree @themuliabali and back with my photo taking friend @eyesofanomad (edit by me.)
Our society today, through this ‘hey-look-my-life-is-cooler-than-yours’ social media, has bred a whole generation of people who believe that having negative experiences - anxiety, fear, guilt, etc. - is abnormal or bad.(extract from Brene Brown). I can tell you right now that while I’m posting a beautiful photo wearing a beautiful dress (@ashathelabel ) I’m having a bit of a hard time but I know it is just as important (and realistic) to have bad days as it is to have good ones. And sharing those bad days is maybe more so important than the good ones to try to change the beliefs of a generation.
I’ve never met a kangaroo I didn’t like… Well actually I’ve never met a kangaroo, they’re not all as friendly as these ones ya know! The Roo’s down at Lucky Bay are the sweetest, I didn’t expect them to be so soft and fluffy! I live for moments like this one. If you have never been to Esperance, I highly recommend you add it to the bucket list, my favourite place in WA @esperancechaletvillage @esperancetide
I wrote a musical while I was in the bubble bath, it was a soap opera… Yep, that’s my kinda humour #dadjokes #punny But in all seriousness, I do love a good bath, it is the perfect thinking place. Sometimes I can sit in the bath until it turns cold and I’m all wrinkly. I get very philosophical during a bath, pondering the meaning of life and such. This particular bath time I was thinking “how the f**k am I here?!” @themuliabali Life is strange. Photographed by @shotbyemilio edit by me.

This pic reminds me of the books I used to read as a kid like “The Magic Faraway Tree’ (ok I am showing my age). The view from @parrybeachbreaks was magical. These cold nights aren’t so bad with red wine, good company and sparklers! @rachael_gouvignon @littlemissmonbon yaaayyyyy!
BOOM! Gorgeous setting, great tunes, good company. This road trip has been magic just like my unicorn wanderboom from @ultimateears Half the size, all the sound, perfect for travel! I’ve been playing @quinnxcii on repeat this whole trip because of his beachy vibes, I highly recommend! What are your fav roadie tunes?
Coasting around the deep SW this week with @rachael_gouvignon and @littlemissmonbon First stop is the road into @parrybeachbreaks with this gorgeous sunset and Betty Blue the Honda (yes I have named her and yes I may be getting attached). It was cloudy and raining the entire 5 hour drive down and then right at sunset the sun broke through and we had this beautiful sky. Just a little reminder that even behind the clouds, the sun is still shining ;)
Oh what I wouldn’t give to be back in the Bali warmth, it is getting chilly in WA! Especially down south! Brrrrrr! Missing those tropical runs and the 1.5 seconds it took to work up a sweat. I find it so much easier and more motivating to be active in warm weather! Now all I want to do is cuddle up in front of a fire and drink red and it’s not even winter yet! My jogging partner (I use this term loosely…very loosely) @eyesofanomad got the shot. Edited by me.
