Feeling: Me? Seriously? I am genuinely feeling GOOD. Great, even. It’s a very bizarre feeling for me to be having, cause I’m just not used to it. I’ve been studying ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy aka mindfulness) for the last couple of months and the change in me is freaking huge, you guys. And it feels less like a short-term change and absolutely a no-going-back change. Even my sleeping habits have changed. It’s amazing.

Watching: My IRL people are a bit sick of me banging on about him, but RICKY MARTIN. Goddamn. The Voice doesn’t seem to be as good to me this year (in terms of contestant talent) and Delta annoys me beyond belief (at home we have named the show SHUT UP DELTA cause that’s what I yell at the teev every time she speaks). But Ricky Martin, sweet jeebus what a hotty.

Fark yeah Ricky Martin

Thinking about: Hawaii, baby! It’s #1 on our holiday wish list right now after an executive decision to ditch initial plans to go to NZ in September. We is gonna save our pennies and go on our first US trip together. When? We dunno. But you can be damn sure that I’ll be shopping up a storm and on the lookout for my 2 favourite Hawaiians: Bruno Mars and Barack Obama.

Making me happy: My newest hobby…plane spotting. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER. I’ve become quite the tragic, even buying apps and hanging out at airport lookouts to watch the planes on the tarmac. I’ve always been a closet plane fanatic (living/working under the flight path for the last 20 years will do that to a girl) but now I’m all-out, no bars hold plane fangirl. I’ve watched a 747 take off and even had a tarmac truck driver wave at me!

My next goal is to get right under an A380 or 747 as it’s coming in to land.

Looking forward to: Turning 35! By the time this goes live, Dan and I are on our way to Hobart for a Rah’s birthday long weekend (I’m getting ahead of the queen’s version next week). It was supposed to be a surprise trip down to see Jarod and Liz for my birthday on Saturday, but I kinda ruined the plans (whoops).

Traditionally, I don’t do my birthday very well at all, and this year I was especially dreading it because it was gonna be my first birthday without MY FAVOURITE FRIENDS ON THE PLANET. But huzzah for burying those emotions for another year and for el-cheapo flights and for a day off work.

See you guys when I get back! xo

  1. I’d like to hear more about ACT! Was there a particular book or website that you followed?

    1. Well! I went to a therapist who’s studied ACT (found her through http://www.actmindfully.com.au/)

      and I did a fat camp earlier this year that’s based on ACT: http://www.theweightescape.com/

      and I’ve got 2 books by Russ Harris: Happiness Trap and Reality Slap

      No words can describe how much it’s changed my brain. Amazing xo

  2. I’d been wanting to comment on this one when I read it at work ages ago…wanted to say good on you for using ACT! It’s great and I really wish I could apply it more in my life currently. I teach clients but using it on myself? Well, that can be a hit and miss. I do love The Happiness Trap.
