The Millennials Series: My New Project

Since finishing my MBA just over a month ago, I've had a lot of time to think about what my next project was going to be. I had numerous ideas, outside of launching my business mentoring services. I ummed and ahhed for a few weeks over this, but yesterday, I chose to take a leap out … Continue reading The Millennials Series: My New Project

The Millennials Series: A Letter To My Younger Self

For something different from my normal blogs, I wrote a letter to my younger self. This letter expands on the points I'd originally made on a thread on Twitter from April 2019 started by Amanda Newton, Head of Community at Xero. To my younger self, if I could do it all over again, remember the … Continue reading The Millennials Series: A Letter To My Younger Self

Breaking the Stigma: How Powerlifting Has Helped Me To Create Healthy Habits

If you've been following my story, you'll know that I am not shy in talking about living with an eating disorder, depression and anxiety. I started powerlifting when I was at my sickest about 6 years ago as a form of recovery that involved creating healthy habits whilst still being able to do something I … Continue reading Breaking the Stigma: How Powerlifting Has Helped Me To Create Healthy Habits

The Millennials Series: 2020, A Year of Growth

Hi 2020, it's nice to meet you! I have spent some time reflecting over the last couple of days, as we farewelled 2019, and said hello to 2020 and a new decade. Looking back over the last 12 months, I can see that it was a period of massive change, and with that in mind, … Continue reading The Millennials Series: 2020, A Year of Growth

The Millennials Series: The First Year

Today marks exactly one year since I moved to Perth! In all honesty, when I moved here, I didn't think I would be here for longer than 6 months, and now, it kind of feels like home. The last twelve months have been probably the hardest, but most rewarding, and it's been a huge period … Continue reading The Millennials Series: The First Year

The Millennials Series: How Using Apps Is Improving My Mental Health Through Mindfulness

I've been very open about my journey with mental illness, but what I didn't realise was that I hadn't shared much about how I manage it outside of powerlifting. One of the benefits of living in a digital age is that there are apps for just about everything - including ones to help improve your … Continue reading The Millennials Series: How Using Apps Is Improving My Mental Health Through Mindfulness

The Millennials Series: Being Vulnerable

With how hectic life has been, it's been a few months since I've had the motivation to sit down and write. Last week I stood up in front of a group of my colleagues and was completely vulnerable as I told them my story of living with mental illness. I was extremely nervous and was … Continue reading The Millennials Series: Being Vulnerable

The Millennials Series: 2019 Goals

It's been shown that setting and achieving goals will lead to being more fulfilled with your life. I've spent the last two weeks trying to determine what my goals are for 2019. I've been pretty slack in prior years with actually sticking to my goals. This year I thought I'd document them somewhere public to … Continue reading The Millennials Series: 2019 Goals

The Millennials Series: 2018, A Year in Review

2018 has been by far the most challenging year yet. This year has been by far the one which has pushed me the furthest out my comfort zone. I competed in sanctioned powerlifting competitions, travelled to almost every state/territory in Australia at least once, and finally visited some parts of Europe that were on my bucket list.

Breaking the Stigma: I Chose to Live

On Thursday, 13th of September, it was R U OK? Day. R U OK? Day is about raising the awareness of suicide prevention, which is an enormously complex and sensitive challenge. This is a movement very close to my heart, as four years ago I was almost one of those statistics you read about. I was depressed, … Continue reading Breaking the Stigma: I Chose to Live
