2020 Goals

Hello new decade of opportunities. A cliché post to start the New Year. For me however, this goal setting period has become one of my favourite times of the year. 

The New Year seems to create a great divide when it comes to people’s attitudes. I observe people to be either in a post Christmas slump or in a very excited way about the possibilities of the new year.

Capital City Influence

It’s 2020! Where did 2019 go? Did anyone actually get to celebrate Christmas? I seemed to have a ‘bam and the New Year is here’ moment. Let’s start the year off with a bang! By that, I mean a blog post. Yes, I am indeed still alive! Just suffering a rather serious case of writer’s doubt (is that a thing? I’m calling it a thing!). I will have a 2020 goals post coming in the next few weeks for all of you goal setters! In the meantime, I thought I’d start the 2020 Blog Posts with an observation that came about rather early in my move to Brisbane.

Preface: I never would have thought that I could fall victim to consumerism. I never believed I would be seriously drawn into fast paced disposable ways of the modern world (I say seriously, because I am still early 20’s making poor regular spending decisions).

The 2019 Wrap Up

Howdy All,

I did that thing again, where I forgot to post. As much as I love blogging and still love the same interests (minimalism, finance, goal setting, etc.). I don’t have as much time as I used to for all of it. To put it simply, Brisbane is busier. Update, I love it here. It feels much more suited to where I am at in life.

I am starting to reset and prepare for a New Year. As part of this, I reflect and set my goals for the next year. As I often write majority of this down, I thought I would share this with you. I will have a busy last week of 2019, with my family coming to stay with me (eek, I am so excited!).

It may not of been the year I expected, however it was the year I neededBig mood for 2019.

Fresh Starts

“Oops. I did it again.” – Britney Spears

I didn’t keep up with my blog… and I’m not sorry. How rude.

On June 4, I posted that my life was going in a new direction. And this could not have been anymore accurate. I began to say that I was going to be on the ultimate minimalist and frugal challenge. I was unemployed and decided to move with only what I could fit in my car.

So where am I today?

April Goals Check-In

Happy Saturday!

It’s official! I’m on holidays, hooray!

I’ve been hesitant to write this post, as I completely missed most of my marks in the month of April, thus probably explaining the late post. However, as I hinted at in Breaking My Own Rules, I think it’ll be worth it in the end!

The Benefits of ‘Owning’ Your Money

Happy Saturday!

As discussed in A Financial Reset | EOFY, I’m working over the next few months to put my own personal financials together, as well as assist the lucky winners from the Facebook Giveaway with putting financials together for them, in preparation for the new financial year.

So why do I spend time putting these together for myself? These are the benefits to both myself and others:
