Every single time I want to write, I have to battle the side of me that tells me there are other, more important things to do. In the same boat? Here are 5 things to remember to help win the battle and just start writing.
New year, new blog post! Finally! I’ve been um-ing and ah-ing about what to write, given it’s been several months since I last made an appearance here (not counting the making and selling of items on the shop, of course). I didn’t want to write the a big cliché “setting goals for the new year” or “how to kick goals this year” pieces – mainly because I didn’t have anything particularly
Good Food Month’s Night Noodle Markets have returned to Hyde Park for another year, and for two glorious weeks, we have some of the city’s best Asian-inspired food in one place (i.e. in my belly!). Here are 10 things we tried and loved: If you’re planning to check it out in the next few days (it finishes on 22 Oct), here are my tips to make the most of your
Back in June, I was invited on The FaithFeed to share how my faith has evolved and the role that it plays in my life. In the lead-up to their October event, they’ve published the full video of my talk. Appearing on The FaithFeed was no easy decision; getting up in front of any crowd is always daunting, but it’s absolutely terrifying knowing something incredibly personal will be recorded and
For a long time I was convinced that a “creative career” was an oxymoron; surely exercising creativity was something one did in their spare time and not something to be mistaken as an acceptable or sustainable occupation. It took almost three decades for me to realise now how ridiculous that is, but I got there. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by one of my friends to take
It’s almost noon on a Thursday and my “work day” is only just beginning. I’d like to dream that I’m starting late because I’m still very much in holiday mode, was able to enjoy a sleep-in, and have simply tumbled out of bed after a gloriously refreshing rest, and am now sitting at my laptop in my pyjamas, holding a mug of hot coffee, and my fingertips itching with lots of
I’ve been thinking about this post for a few weeks now… which is my problem, you see, I am really bad at sticking my scheduled time to write for Finding Joy. Sure, I’ve spent time writing for a bunch of other blogs or publications (the ones that *cough* pay me), but I am constantly breaking the cardinal rule of blogging by not posting regularly enough. Sorry guys. So, uh, as

Hi there. Just thought I’d pop in and write something, lest you think I’d fallen off the face of the earth. This blog always seems like the first ball I drop once life starts getting a bit busy… and well… I’ve been juggling a lot. Serves me right for writing a post about how to stay organised. The Universe read that post about bullet journaling and laughed and laughed. Today, I’m not laughing.
Before you get too excited, I just want to clarify this isn’t a sneak peak into the private thoughts and ramblings in my journal. Trust me, you don’t want to get lost inside my head like that. 😜 No, this post is about how I started bullet journaling this year and has some handy, free printables for you to download in case you want to give it a shot too. What is
I’m having one of those weeks where my to-do list is growing at a rate that I can’t keep up, and right now I’m feeling completely under-accomplished and the voices of doubt keep telling me that I’ve bitten off way more than I can chew. I am juggling so many things at the moment, and fear that I’ll drop them all any second. I called hubby on the way home
Preparing nutritious food for the whole family every day is no easy task, especially when the newest member is just starting their journey into the wonderful (and messy!) world of solids. Introducing solids is a big adjustment for everyone involved; often it means tweaking the menu and culling salt from recipes, that baby food equipment overtakes a significant part of the kitchen, and that suddenly there’s a lot more cleanup to contend with
