Be patient and trust your journey. MB
Spending the evening working on a few creative projects, but my heart is in the country. Two weeks until the long weekend!
Yep, también se llena de plantitas 🌿
What an intense few months it's been with the eclipses & the retrogrades, I know I have definitely felt it all. 😶
Retrogrades find us looking to the past, but the eclipses can force us to face change in a way that might be uncomfortable.
Bring on the next six months, and summer vibesss 🌞
Almost the end of August. We have had so many expenses this month including 2x car registrations and the replacement of our ensuite toilet, among a bunch of other things. Not sure how we will have gone this month in terms of our finances and extra payments but we will be ahead of where we were last month - baby steps are still steps! How’s your August been? 😘
This is what an average day of zero-waste, high vibrational grocery shopping looks like 🍋🍊🍐🍎🍏🍉🍌🍆🍅🍍🍠🌶 Whole organic foods only baby!! Plastic-free shopping is super easy on a plant-based diet. I always bring reusable bags, bulk bags, & mason jars with me (except this time I forgot a bulk jar and used a coconut bowl instead). Dang, it feels good to heal my body and the 🌏... all through simply eating a #HighVibrationalDiet
This is not a post to criticise people who choose not to pay off their HECS (student loans). Personal finance is personal and there are many valid reasons why you wouldn’t... but for us...
We were talking recently about how paying off my husband’s HECS debt has really put us ahead at this time in our lives.
When we applied for a mortgage we were able to apply based on having ZERO debt (that was a fun day for me!). Every cent that my husband earns that doesn’t go to tax or super goes straight into our pockets to use for more important things like investing and travelling... and baby having 😂
Sure we could’ve used the $45k. Who couldn’t! But as Dave so logically points out, would you borrow on your student loans to invest/buy a house/pay down your mortgage/go on a holiday?
For us, not having debt will always equal freedom because our most powerful wealth building asset is our income.
Sitting on ideas and daydreams are never any good if you don’t take them anywhere, refuse to share them with anyone, or work hard to make them your reality.
Don’t watch the world go by because you’re scared to leave the nest, afraid you’ve taken someone else’s idea or too vulnerable to go it alone. We all bounce off of each-other and are deeply connected with one another; so let’s just enjoy it. The world is there to be explored and learnt. Don’t let it go to waste.
I was trapped in fear for many years before launching Selah. Fear of failure, fear of making mistakes, fear of the unknown. I’m almost hitting a year before my official launch. As difficult as it was, I learned so much about myself and people! You really never know until you try. The best part of this journey is the friendships I’ve made. It can honestly get lonely sometimes so I can’t emphasize enough the need for community and to immerse yourself with people that genuinely care for you. I’ve had friends that would call me just to tell me, “Candace, you’re not crazy. You’re on the right path, I truly believe in what you are doing, I’m here for you.” Life giving words are what gave me the strength to persevere instead of giving up. I don’t like long posts but just wanted to share and also thank you for your support! There’s a real human being behind this and she wants to make a difference in this world just like many of you✨
A minimalism high is a lot like a runners high. Well, I honestly don't know how a runners high actually feels because I've been struggling to like running for ten years but I IMAGINE it's a similar concept.
At first, it feels like you've completely emptied out a rooms-worth of drawers onto your floor with the intention of minimizing but now you have no real idea what the plan is or why you started it in the first place. You look around and think - this is just ONE room and I have MANY rooms and I don't know how I'm going to do this. You care what "people" might think about you pulling from the Jones race. You worry you've taken on too much. You're out of breath and you have this pain in your right side (oh wait, that's just running again... back to minimalism).
But IF you keep “running”, you soon reach a point where it stops feeling so hard. You hit your stride and your attachment to stuff becomes more comfortable and fluid - You could take it or leave it - it's just stuff, after all. You start to happily become selective about what you bring into your space. The new pillows in the Target Home section are cute, sure, but you don't need them and it’s not even hard to say no anymore. You decide to re-focus on your goal to read more or develop a hobby or exercise whenever you hear that little voice wanting to shop for “something”. You develop a great sense of pride around the home and life you've specifically curated for your own happiness.
And if you can get there - and everyone can get there - you'll never go back.
(Now someone please teach me how to run) #thatnostufflife
Bähm…ein Tag wie eine Kollision mit einem D-Zug, aber am Ende habe ich irgendwie noch nebenbei alle Punkte der „Vorschul-Liste“ eingekauft und abgehakt #teamlastminute
Nun steht alles was morgen mit muss ready im Eingangsbereicht. Alles vorbildlich wie verlangt mit Labels versehen und auch die kleine last minute Schultüte ist befüllt. Zum Glück konfisziere ich öfters kleine Geschenke der Großeltern, wenn mir das Ausmaß für den Moment zu groß erscheint für andere Zeitpunkte 🙈 und so war eine Tüte mit Naschzeug und ein paar Kleinigkeiten welche im Päckchen zum Geburtstag für den Junior von meiner Mutter kamen noch in Petto um die kleine Tüte ausreichend voll zu packen. Damit mir morgen das große Drama am Morgen erspart bleibt, gibt es für die Tochter auch eine kleine Tüte, welche es zum Glück schon in Miniaturformat fertig gefüllt mit allerlei Produkten „mit der Extra-Portion Milch“ bei meinem Lieblingsdiskounter käuflich zu erwerben gab. Ich bin gespannt ob die große Aufregung beim Junior gleich mit dem erwarteten Eintreffen des Sandmannes urplötzlich kommt oder es ihn wirklich so wenig juckt, wie es aktuell den Anschein macht, dass er ab morgen in seiner zukünftigen Grundschule zum Vorschulkind wird 🤷🏻♀️ Ich bin zumindest sehr gespannt auf den neuen Lebensabschnitt!

Guarda el brócoli en un frasco con agua para que te dure fresco más tiempo. Funciona con el apio, lechuga, kale, zanahorias y más verduras. 🌿
Keep your heads of broccoli in water in the fridge to keep them fresh and crispy. This also works for lettuce, kale, carrots and lots of other veggies. 🌿

I’ve been working on my self-worth for about a year now. After living in self-hatred for most of my life, I’m finally starting to appreciate and truly love myself for all that I am, just as I am. I’m finally starting to see the light inside of me, and it’s truly a beautiful and extremely transformative thing. It’s crazy how the simple act of loving ourselves can transform the way we see our life, the world, and the people around us. When you love yourself, life feels lighter, and everything feels more complete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t think self-love is something we have to ‘learn’ or ‘acquire’. I think it’s something that already exists deep within us... we just have to rediscover it. And I think this happens differently for everyone; with age, with maturity, with self-reflection, and by going into those uncomfortable places deep within ourselves.
My tip for starting your own self-love journey? Don’t be afraid to feel your pain. We must acknowledge and fully accept our bottled up emotions in order to release them. Remember that there is beauty within the darkness, and relief within the discomfort. The act of going into these uncomfortable places will spark a life-long journey of self discovery, healing, and growth.

Be one with nature with an earthy beaded bracelet.
When you show up to the winery and match the scenery...
I had to bring the little table back out to sit in the morning sun because it’s too gorgeous! With school about to start, the boys love to bask in the light while they attempt to sit still and do their work🙄 (boys, am I right?). This week is so full of getting ready for school and I’m not even sad! My goal is to make this school year more fun. Not completely sure how yet other than smiling and playing music and encouraging and not planning too much.
Also on another note, I made beef stew last night. 🥘 I don’t know why that makes me feel like such a good mom but it does. Every time the kids walk through the house sniffing the air in anticipation I pat myself on the back a little harder.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Au revoir France 🇫🇷 May we meet again soon 😍🏇 #nofilter
😀 We were so blessed to have a visit from The Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP here at @newdirectioncare
Bellmere. Ken Wyatt MP is the Federal Minister for Aged Care here in Australia. The minister went for a walk around our community, popped into two houses, the Wellness centre and greeted residents along the way! 🏘
He also tweeted 📲: ‘What a pleasure to meet Mark, a resident of NewDirection Care, the new small household model in Queensland. Aged Care that is totally person-centre, with 7 per house and a care companion who works with each homes residents. Thanks’
Micro living at its smallest. The tiny 7.3m2 space is enclosed within a surrounding courtyard. From the entrance you weave around it’s narrow walkway to be greeted by a private open space. The interiors has all the amenities required, cleverly integrated into the kitchen and bathroom joinery. The large sliding doors allow the two spaces to interconnect and become a spacious indoor/outdoor space. One could imagine lying on the small patch of grass, gazing at the open sky above - away from the rest of the world.
