A 'spring' in my step.....

I have a real 'spring' in my step, life is just so good right now......

(roses from Babes...)

lots and lots of exciting and positive things happening in my life.....

Remember this pretty journal I made,


I used it to write down a whole lot of goals for myself earlier this year when Babes and I separated and now when I look back over them I can see how well and how quickly I have progressed.....

in six months here is some of what I have achieved from my list
*joined pole dancing - lol
*had therapy to deal with marriage breakup
* focused on the well being of the Princess and I
*de-cluttered and cleaned and cleansed house
*became fit and healthy
*stayed positive
*crafted
*painted furniture to sell
*applied to university to become a Primary School Teacher (application pending)

some small and some big but all working towards the bright and shiny future I have planned for the Princess and I......

and some unexpected positives, like meeting a really nice man........

tee hee...................................................

take care Rachaelxo

p.s check out Natasha's blog, she is hosting a swap with a twist......

You can be so proud of yourself! You managed to accomplish a lot in a time which probably wasn't the best time of your life to use an understatement. But you did it anyway, chapeau and very deep bow.
Stay happy and healthy! Your journal is beautiful! Everbody should have one. Have a great day, today, tomorrow and every day!
