Never ever underestimate what you can achieve.

Sometimes we look at others and think how wonderful they must be to have what they have . . When in reality they’re probably simply someone who has had a goal and worked to its fruition.

Behind the glitz and glamour we see is someone who has worked hard toward a goal. Someone who has had a dream and pursued it. Someone who didn’t give up when the road got a little rough.

You can be that someone. How?

1. Imagine a goal
2. Write down strategies for achieving that goal
3. Make a plan on what you will do each day toward fulfilling that goal
4. Commit to it
5. Don’t quit when it looks hardest. Many people travel 85% of the way toward reaching their dreams, only to face the final hurdle and quit. Don’t be a quitter! Realise that hurdle in front of you could be the last hump to jump before reaching that glorious goal.

Believe in yourself – you are amazing! You CAN do it!

And don’t be ‘all work and no play’ … reward yourself along the way, you’re worth it. And a crucial element to avoid burn-out is to be sure to stop and smell the roses.

Now, come on dear friend, get off your butt, stamp on your past excuses, and rise! Grab that pen, make that vision board, dream that dream and then set to your task like a chihuahua to the ankles of a jogger.

Come on – SHINE!
Glitz and glam and glitter and stars look so good on you!!

Are you ready? Does Winter leave you cold?
Have you been gearing up for some positive change – ready to get your pizzazz on?
About ready to bounce out in vitality and glamour?

Yeah, me too!!

I love that wide open-armed beckoning of Spring – inviting us on an adventure of the mind and body and soul.

Oh Spring how we love the spring you put in our step!

Let’s go!

Let’s spring into something new, something challenging, something rewarding today.

Of all the days of the calendar, we allow this one to make a difference.

We’ve semi-hybernated as the cold drew us indoors beside the heater wrapped in blankets, unenergised – but a new day has dawned.

Spring has sprung our spring!

Here’s the clean slate we knew was beckoning us. And it’s as easy as one, two, three.

1 Spring clean our home of clutter
2 our mind of worry
3 and our body of laziness

Salads and clean foods cleanse our bodies as we say no to those fatty and sugary treats we craved in the cold.

We are springing into better digestion and higher energy.

Brisk walks and outdoor play shake the excess fat from stores in our thighs and tummies.

We are springing into a leaner me with healthier bones and better circulation.

While we’re at it we’re springing into a healthier, happier heart and greater memory power!

We are focusing on those great things we can do – not the things we can’t do. We have thrown excuses out with the cold winter winds and have thrown open the door to positive energy, cleaner home and cleaner minds.

Gone with the dust, out with the clutter, finished with the thoughts that spin me around and land me right back where I began.

I am a new me. The sun is shining in my heart. I feel fresher, livelier, cheekier!!

BAM take that Winter blues!!

Here is the better, brighter, fitter, funner ME!!

Beginning today. I deserve it! I’m springing into the ab fab me! Watch out world – I’m alive!!

***If you would like some coaching into making the new you happen, or adding consistency to the new you – drop me a line on this website and let’s see what we can do together. #youmatter #allinthistogether #helpingyoushine

After my breakdown I wondered if I would ever get back up again. Life looked so hard!

Sometimes facing too much at once can be overwhelming – believe me, I know!

Twelve-step programs encourage taking one day at a time. One day at a time, I could cope with.

I didn’t allow anxiety about my future to strangle me. I only had one day to think about. This day.


I began a daily routine that included exercise, prayer, writing and hugging my hubby. Simple stuff that began to strengthen me physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.

After my breakdown, recognising signs of stress became crucial. And as I purposely faced one day at a time, I became more in tune to myself and to my needs.

That’s why right now I’m out walking. I have great goals to achieve today, but nothing prepares me for them better than exercise.

While I induce happy hormones for my body, I connect with the creator so I also release a grateful, happy spirit.

It has not been ‘doing more’ that has brought me back to life. It is living each day purposefully.

Some days that doesn’t involve much at all … simply a walk, some hugs with someone I love, a quiet chat with Papa and time spent writing – my craft that I am passionate about.

It was in the darkness I became equipped to shine in the light.

No matter what you are going through, remember the crown upon your head. You are destined to shine!


Blessings and joy and luvn vibes to you my friend.

Have you ever heard something that sounds backwards or inside out?

Well I have one of those statements for you …

I live the most carefree life through routine.

It seems crazy I know, but it’s the remedy for stress and the recipe for success.

Allow me tell you what I’m talking about and see if you can’t become more productive by doing less!

As a writer, it’s simple routine that brings success. My little ritual brings huge results.

You and I are physical, mental, spiritual and emotional beings, yea? What if you could charge all that up upon wakening each morning? Fully pumped and rearing to go with barely any effort aft all! Yea? Are you in?

Here’s my tip – see if its time in your life to live larger and experience more fun and productivity.

My days begin with charging my spiritual energy through #prayer and #meditation on the word.

I move my physical body through #exercise.

Hugging my man then charges up the wam and fuzzies.

Fueling my #brain with a good breakfast sees me ready for anything.

Now I’m free to spend hours doing what i love – WORKING! I love my work – creating, #writing – bringing thoughts to the page.


Because at the end of production time it’s all play! #laughter, #fun, #exploring, #traveloz #adventure #coastdays #aussiebush #helpingothers #randomactsofkindness #sowing #sharing

It is the winning formula. Tap into ALL of you early! Get up and get going. Charge yourself up spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally – you will thoroughly enjoy the difference.

Before you go, there’s always one who finds a glitch and decides the formula won’t work for them, isn’t there? It’s the ‘that might work for you but you don’t know my life’ stuff we hear all too often.

This formula wasn’t invented by me – now there’s a surprise … NOT. It’s a formula used by many successful people that I put to the test and discovered its success for myself .

If you like where you’re at. Stay there. If you would prefer more energy and play time and successful productivity, then give it a go.

It’s your life. Why not be the best you?

Use the winning formula. You matter! You deserve a great life.

You were born to shine!!!

You’ve been loved – on by

Now get on out there and strutt you stuff, you amazing, incredible YOU!! #fallingupstairs #roomtobreathe

Some of us live in fear – in fear of the future, in fear of the unknown, in fear of our fears!

Mist is so romantically mysterious. The world around me and Step right now has completely gone. Glistening white icicles form on our eyebrows. We make up stories in anticipation of what could lie ahead.

But none of us ever really knows what lies ahead, do we?
And YET, some of us find that tinglingly invigorating.

Instead of fear, I feel excitement. Instead of worry forcing me to turn around and go back, I press on – kind of thrilled and nervous at the same time.


My secret? How do I do that? (because you know I haven’t always done that, don’t you?) This is a new chapter of my life – and its too bloody good to walk it alone.

It’s exciting when we realise we’re in the hands of the one who knows all and is already there beckoning us forward. Yep, faith had smashed my fears.

Faith has set me free, broken the shackles I had myself chained with (yes, I chained me. Nobody else did).

And then faith reveals fear as nothing but a vapour.
A mist.
A fog.
And, as the light breaks through, it is disipated, dispersed, dispelled.

And the more the sun (Son) shines on it, the quicker it is completely gone.

And I am free.

If you need to know more about conquering fear, contact me at and let’s win together. Because nobody should live trapped, when they’re born to be free.

Because your life is worth living and ain’t nobody else who can live it for you.

Because you are awesome and deserve the best. You have been promised an A+ – don’t settle for a B-.

Let’s smash this thing! šŸŒž Together we win! šŸŒž

No matter how small, it searches out more – hungry, determined to continue, stretching itself to fulfil is desires.

Eventually fueling itself into a passionate frenzy.

We loathe its damaging effects in the scorching heat of summer but admire its warming power in winter.

Fire inspires me in its relentless energy to continue.

I’ve seen how that relentless energy can wreak havoc, cause damage and wipe out everything in its wake during Aussie summers of hot winds, dry ground and heat unbreathable.

I’ve also experienced the healing power of fire. Thawing frozen toes on frosty mornings, boiling a billy full of chai tea, cooking dinners, warming a room, toasting marshmallows, bringing energy, combating the cold winter blues.

Fire just keeps burning. It won’t stop. Even doused, it searches other avenues, boiling sometimes unseen at the surface, glowing orange as it anticipates fuel to spark it back into powerful action.

Fire is a bit like our own passions, really.

We can fuel our passion into anger, jelousy, rage. Destroying others with our tongues of fire. Wreaking havoc on family or creating enemies as we spit and charge ahead relentlessly without care for others.

But I’ve seen passions fanned into flame as friends are gathered, people encouraged, healing offered and unconditional love poured out like perfume.

Like a fire, we can fan our passionate flames to bring death or life, to be loathed or loved.

We can bring warmth and healing – or we can destroy.
We can provide a place of comfort – or bring disaster.

Are you a Summer fire of destruction or a Winter fire of provision?

Where are you fanning your feelings? What are your passions moving you toward?
God calls our heart the source from which passions spring. What’s burning in your heart?

Be careful your fire doesn’t possess you. Be wary of it burning out of control through hatred, aversion, fear or envy.

There are many passion-fires burning – you choose what you fuel.

Fuel love. Fan it by the attraction of goodness, kindness, gratefulness. This fire is rewarded by mutual pleasure and joy and goodness. It helps fan others’ fires – helping, healing, growing and glowing in energy.

As you fan your flame today, direct it toward your desired outcome, be sure to be fueling the right flames. Extinguish your anger as you fuel your peace. Quench your rage as you fuel your love.

Burn brightly. Shine your light.

Fan into flame the gift of God which is in you.
2 Timothy 1:6


Shine on Crazy Diamond.

Mirror mirror you don’t capture me at all


OK girls, this one’s for you.
I just got out of the shower and bent down to put my clothes on. There’s a full-length mirror in front of me – something I’m not used to because I live in a van and our only mirror is about the size of my face.

I saw my mummy-tummy and boobies that never used to look like that. I saw love-handles and saggy skin that once was taunt and terrific. At first I was shocked some old lady was sharing the bathroom with me. And then real shock set in when I realised this reflected image was my body! Mine! How, and when did this happen?!

And it got me thinking what a positive body image I have, because I don’t dwell on that mirrored body image. My mind thinks young so it tells me I am young and I feel young. This thinking fuels vitality and energy. The mirror doesn’t determine how I feel or think about myself because I refuse to give it that power. Are you hearing me girls?

I got a shock at that mirror body image at first. But I gave that old lady the thumbs-up and a cheeky wink. I dressed myself in my colorful, fun clothes. I stood up straight, sucked in my mummy-tummy, pushed up my tiny boobies, put my chins up and smiled at that reflected body image.

Our minds are powerful. What we think, we can become. I could allow the recorded naked old-lady image to replay all day and cause me grief, but that isn’t who I am. The real me is so much more than a body image. I am uniquely made, glorious and delightful. I’m a collection of happy vibes and groovy images and wild abandon and a heart full of love.

I would be embarrassed to look at someone else and judge them based on their skin tone, wrinkles, hair colour or body shape – how foolish would I be to judge myself on a mirrored naked body image?

Come on girls. We choose to see the good in others, let’s do it for ourselves. Nurture your nature . You are beautiful. Wonderfully unique. Born to shine. Created to glow from the inside out. Your light comes from within. Walk away from the mirror and get out there strutting your glorious style.

The world has a need for each one of us! Our smiles bring joy to others. We celebrate ourselves in all our splendour. We know peace through prayer and we know love through a God who loves us completely.

I am imperfectly, perfectly me.

We were created on purpose, for a purpose. Who you are is deeper, more beautiful, more miraculous than any mirrored body image could ever display. You are SENSATIONAL!

Let the love, joy and happy vibes flow

Your friend Chrissy šŸ’œšŸ’›
