Today marks the first day of Autumn in Australia and although it is warm here in Perth majority of the year, I am no longer on summer holidays as of today.
My summer break was a good one. After working and studying full time for the year of 2011, once uni holidays rolled around in late October last year, I could not be happier. Instead of going to uni 3 nights a week, I spent my evenings at the beach, either walking or swimming.
The summer of 11/12 was definitely one where I relaxed more and looked after myself. I took a new approach to my life in 2012 and the results speak for themselves. I’m happier, less stressed and I’m getting along with everyone in my life or I at least rush to fix the problem these days…completely unheard of before. (If you want to know more about my new approach, check out Dr Richard Carlson’s books here, he’s the genius behind the new me).
I’m not going to let go of my summer holidays just yet. Maybe I have attachment issues but I have an idea to phase it out slowly. I’m thinking maybe once a week, do something that reminds me of summer. Starting tomorrow, I’m heading down to the beach to watch the sunrise…hopefully I make it on time!
The main reason for going down to the beach tomorrow is for a yearly event called ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ where a number of artists exhibit their pieces on the beach (more on it here).
Can’t wait to see what’s on display this year!
