Life Lessons

lessons we learn in like

Yesterday, I had a doctor’s appointment that brought relief to the question of ‘what if?’ in my mind. Around a month ago, I decided to get a health check with blood tests to see if I was lacking in anything...
I remember when I was in my early 20’s, my dad said something along the lines of ‘Bec, you will eventually need to do less because you will be too tired to fit all the things in your life.’...
I’m a planner at heart. I like to have a good idea of what I’m doing the next day - the next week and the next month. But I can also go with the flow… providing I know those...
Whenever I write a personal post, I don’t always know how it will end until I type my thoughts on the page. I usually end with a point to make or a message to convey. And generally the lessons are ones...
If there is one thing I have re-learned since the start of the year, it would be life is as extraordinary as you make it. Such a simple truth and statement to make, but one I struggle with because when...
With the gorgeous autumn days and winter on our doorstep, I’ve made an effort to walk the girls to and from school. It’s a lovely stroll to school… providing we’re not late. I enjoy the walk and even though...
The first time I went to a Disney on Ice show was last year when I took the family to see Frozen. It was a memorable experience and one I’d love to experience again with my girls. They love Disney...
So this week, you would have read that I have felt a bit blah. And you know what, it is totally normal to feel that way sometimes. Life is hectic. Demands from commitments can be draining. And it’s ok to feel exhausted...
When I was doing my training with my new job, I would use the stairs to get up and down from the training room. Every morning I would race up the stairs, hoping it would work off some of...
On Friday I finished my full time training with my new job. Woohoo! Since I’ve finished the training, I’ve given myself time to breathe and haven’t forced myself to blog or get writing done because my mind has needed a...
In the last 6 weeks, I have had very little time to spend with God reading His Word and reading books on faith that encourage me and lift me up. Heck, I haven’t had much time to read my...
I was captured by the character of Jamie Fraser in Outlander during the Season One episode of ‘The Devil’s Mark’. If you have no idea what TV show I’m talking about, you can read about it here, and you may...
Sponsored by Stockland If you reflect on your 20s, you’re bound to have fond memories of good times and the youth that you often took for granted. You may also have regrets about things you should or shouldn’t have done....
This week was a week of nerves and tension headaches as I had my first experience on the phones taking customer calls. My new work role will have me on the phones for the entire shift when I work...
There has been a lot of change in The Plumbette HQ in the last month. It’s been good change, but I’ve kept a lid on it since I shared about the interview process because… what if I didn’t get...
When the 1st of January 2018 rolled around, I had good intentions of making it my year to start working on my health, finances and general wellbeing. I wrote my list of goals and it ended up being two...
Do you ever sometimes wish for a simple life and then realise how much work is involved to create a said simple life? And really, you don't want a simple life. Maybe a more slower life where you can...
Mid-February is usually always a busy season in our family’s life, because school has usually started back and we celebrate Jacob’s Birthday (on Valentine’s Day) and Maggie’s Birthday (this coming Tuesday). But this week has been exceptionally busy with...
When I was an early teen in high school, I had a somewhat humiliating experience at school that confused me. It wasn’t publicly humiliating - thank goodness, but it was enough to make me slightly wary of saying hi...
This last Christmas and New Years has been one of the most happiest times for many friends and family. My Facebook feed was filled with announcements of engagements, pregnancies and wonderful achievements, that would bless these lovely people this...
On the first day of 2018, I headed out to do half an hour of exercise. An indulgent December has seen my curves become rounder, making the waist band of my shorts a little tighter. Ain’t that the truth. I...
Back in January, I was going to share books that I had read each month, and share what I thought about them. This new ‘series’ on the blog never eventuated because of a number of reasons. The main one...
