It’s been a couple of weeks since my last Sunday Session and we’ve got lots to catch up on so pour yourself a cuppa and pull up a chair…
The blogosphere went into overdrive last week when Veggie Mama, Stacey shared this post. It was so nice to have her back in such a real and honest way and it sparked a big conversation about the idea of being a ‘useless blogger’. Everyone started calling themselves that; and loving it too! At first I wasn’t sure about the whole thing, ‘useless’ seemed like such a negative word. But then I started reading all the posts; this one by Bron and this one by Robyna and then I got it. It dawned on me that I was pretty much saying the same thing just in a different way when I wrote this post on career and creativity. It’s all about getting back to writing for the love of writing and I can definitely get behind that! Turns out that post has been my most popular yet, which I think says a lot. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment.
After that post I was contacted by someone who I’ve connected with over Instagram. She is studying to be a life coach at the Beautiful You Coaching Academy (which I’ve heard lots about) and needs to coach three people pro bono in order to receive her qualification. My post caught her attention and she emailed me to see if I might be interested in participating in a series of six one on one life coaching sessions. I gratefully accepted. I’ve always been a bit interested in the whole life coaching thing and I’m excited to see what comes of it. She said it felt like it was a case of serendipity that lead her to read my post that day and I have to say I agree! We start this weekend so I’ll keep you all posted with how it goes.
I’ve been enjoying letting creativity back into my life. I visited the Andy Warhol- Ai Weiwei Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. I really enjoyed it. If you haven’t been yet you should totally check it out, it’s on until 24th April.
Then last weekend I went to the Love Your Camera workshop hosted by Angie Baxter with a couple of friends. If you’re looking to learn how to use your DSLR in manual mode I would highly recommend this course. I learnt so much in one day! I also signed up for The Photo School online course which I’m making my way through now. I used to spend a lot of time playing with my camera so it’s been nice to pick it up again.
School Holidays were super busy with the lil man. We went to the movies to see Zootopia, it was really cute and has some beautiful messages in it. It was also the first time he has actually sat through a whole movie at the cinema which was a definite win! We went to the Fairy Park, headed to the beach for a couple of days and enjoyed lots of play dates with cousins and friends. Hubby gets a bit jealous when he misses out on all the fun so we also spent the day in the city last Sunday, walking around and exploring. We took the lil man to Hosier Lane and few other spots where he could watch some graffiti artists at work. He was in awe.
So this week it was time to get back into routine. The lil man has headed back to kinder and I’ve made a commitment to be a healthier me. I appreciated all the tips and suggestions people gave me about this. It’s one week in and I think I’m doing pretty well. I’ve managed a long walk everyday and am doing great with my food.
What have you been up to lately? Have you been to the Warhol Weiwei exhibition or seen the movie Zootopia? Ever had a life coach? Tell me all the things!
