Happy Friday! 😁 Nothing like a beautiful sparkly ocean to start off the day 😍 This holiday hasn't remotely turned out the way I planned it, but I've made new friends, found favorite new places and I wouldn't change a day of it! Back to work this weekend though, so I guess mother nature turned it up for my last day in this incredible place ❀❀

It doesnt matter where you are. If you aren't in touch with yourself, your mind and your past then you will never be content. Reconnect with yourself, listen to what your soul tells you and then adjust your life accordingly. 
And yeah I was proud of my rock tower 😜😜

How blessed are we to live in place that is warm enough to explore in shorts in the middle of winter πŸ™ŒπŸ˜

Morning world 😍 What an incredible view to wake up to! Another positive thought for the morning, it was so cold last night that my left over pizza will be fine to eat for breakfast πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Advice to self #648: Stop looking for love from other people, because you will always be disappointed. Noone can give you what you truely need except yourself. So realise you're a boss, and do what makes you happy ❀

Spending time developing yourself is so important, even if life never seems to go the way you planned. We all have dreams, or goals that we hope to achieve in this lifetime. I'm learning through this book that nothing is more important in this process than the little habit changes you make along the way. What starts off as making your bed in the morning or going for a daily walk can expand to produce more than you could ever hope or imagine ❀

Peak uni season (and life) in a nutshell *pun intended 😜 .
If you aren't under enough pressure that you crack or breakdown from time to time, are you really stepping out of your comfort zone and forcing yourself to grow? But once we overcome a challenge, we are more beautiful and stronger than before πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Έ

There's nothing like a family wedding.. To realise that there a whole bunch of wierdos out there just like you πŸ˜‚β€β€

It's a constant battle against what the world tells us to be. Well dressed, professional, highly educated, well paid, hard working and fit (but be careful not to get too muscular). There is a certain value placed on income and savings, which often is a good thing. But you can't buy happiness, and for a small amount of money you too can be having the time of your life in a dodgy tinny in the middle of a mossy lake πŸ˜‚
.

Even though I'm studying fulltime now, I've pushed myself this entire semester doing as much paid work as I can physically cram into my week. But you know what? No one even cares about my ability to save money as a student. And neither should I. This period is for education πŸŽ“
.

I really should have listened to Dad when he told me not to worry about saving money for the next 4 years while I study. But instead, Rachel thought it was a good idea to run herself into the ground and fall behind in my studies. So catch ya's on the flip side of this semester, because I've now got an incredible amount of catching up to do πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What a lovely day for some standard Rachel procrastination. Here's to not failing the 2 exams I have on Saturday... πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ» .
Feat. Not only a good view, but a great view of that ding on the tank that nooby past Rachel did πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

There's something daunting about spending large amounts of time by yourself. It forces you to slow down and get in touch with your mind, face some of those things that scare you, and discover what your emotions are trying to tell you. 
Life so easily gets filled with being 'busy' and we never actually stop to get in touch with ourselves. But are you really living if you're just floating between work, meeting, events, social activities, uni and assesment? Purpose, direction and happiness all stem from being ware of yourself and what you want t to achieve in the short life you've been given πŸ€”

JUST BREATHE ❀ I thought I'd send out a friendly reminder to anyone who, like myself, is realising that they've crammed way too much into this week πŸ˜‚πŸ˜΄ When it all feels too overwhelming and the emotional breakdowns are real, just inhale deeply and exhale all your negative thoughts, doubts and worries. We will make it to the weekend. We will get it all done. WE'VE GOT THIS ✌

PS. Look at those 2 pelicans mid flight 😍

If life isn't like trying to find your way in a cloudy rainforest but constantly getting lost and tripping over things, I must be doing it wrong.
