Wow, It feels like forever since ive written anything and its not from lack of trying. It's simply lack of time.
Being a mother to 2 young children is tough work then through in the multiple jobs i work, my charity involvement, community participation, sporting activities and so on and i'm barely left a moment to myself.
Over the past month i've had the pleasure of traveling to Hawaii, USA and then Florida, USA.
The first trip to Hawaii was our postponed family vacation and a chance to connect with some amazing people and discuss our platforms and ways to build up international relationships in a particular area. The trip was definately not relaxing but i gained so much from it.
One of my highlights was visiting Pearl Harbor. This experience moved me in a way i didnt think possible and it's obvious that the memories from that day never left.
The memorial site sends those who visit it into a sombred silence and creates a time of reflection for the visitors. I'd definately recommend a trip here for all locals and tourists alike.
Miami was a little different. Miami was for business purposes with an element of excitement! I got to meet with my favourite designer, Fernando Wong and have my dress designed and made up ready to go for the national final of the Australian Galaxy pageant!
While in Florida I spent a total of 1 hour on the beach in Fort lauderdale, sipping a latte and thinking about a lot of 'what if's' and 'buts'. Not in a negative way though... it was to provoke my thinking processes and i achieved a great deal from doing this. It opened my eyes to quite a few things and i definately grew from the trip.
I know that in this life i am very fortunate to lead the life i do. To have a loving husband, 2 beautiful daughters, great friends, a nice home and reliable car... to (finally) be confident in myself and my abilities.
I know that i am now a success in my own little world and i couldnt ask for more.
My daughters are both caring young individuals, we run a successful business, there are big things set for 2016 and regardless of if i post here daily, weekly or monthly know that whatever im doing I am doing in a big way and when the chance is available i'll share it with the world (well, the cyber world anyway!)
