Head & Heart

Helen and Teresa have been posting these Head&Heart posts and I've just never gotten round to doing it for one reason or another.... til today.

What I've been grateful for ~

An amazing and happy work environment for the first time in almost 4 years!  I have an incredibly supportive Manager and a great team who I enjoy working with.  I'm being appropriately recognised and feel like an integral member of the team.  Plus, they give me cake.

Also grateful for my best friend who is amazing and makes me not need a huge group of female friends because she is all I need.

What I've been thinking about~

Pop.  RIP.

What I'm excited for~

BALI!  Man this trip will creep up on me.  Strangely not terribly excited for Christmas and NYE at the moment, although I'm sure I'll get there once the public Christmas trees start going up.

Also excited for Jan when I start a new role as Team Lead for my team.  I think I'm up for the challenge.

What I've been doing!

Actually going to the gym on a regular basis and enjoying it.  I wasn't able to go all week til Friday and when I got in I did a double session.  It's helping me take my mind off work for a bit of time while I increase my fitness levels and I actually feel great afterwards (I know most people feel great whilst/after they exercise but I never have.... weird)


  1. Glad you're keeping at the exercise and that it's making you feel good too.

    Sending a big virtual hug for your Pop.

    1. I always envied people like you who have no issues getting yourself to the gym.

      Thanks :)

  2. Happy that you're happy at work and got the exercise routine going. It's great when those aspects of your life are well taken cared of. :)

    1. Yes, makes me feel settled and in a good routine.

      Work is so important to happiness - we do spend more time at work than anywhere else in our adult lives so I'm thrilled that work is finally a happy place for me :)

    PS. My sister will be in Bali in Jan too - very excited for her, she'll be "constructing houses".... lol!
    PPS. Totes know what you mean about feeling good with exercise - well done! I've been doing on average 2 runs a week for 3 weeks now, it's so good!!

    1. Hahaha I HAVE been meaning to do it, no excuse except lazy/busy :P

      Oh yay how exciting for your sister. I will be doing the normal touristy stuff instead of something constructive like building houses!

      Good work on the running!! I can't run so the gym it is for me!
