New Year… New Perspective

Good Morning beautiful people ❤ ❤ ❤

I hope you are all having a very blessed and peaceful start to the New Year.

I’ve been taking some time away from Miss Millie Millie for the last few months. I found that towards the end of last year I had allowed myself to become too overly involved in too many things and as a result my sense of focus and overall wellbeing was greatly diminished.

I had stopped going to yoga regularly, I began eating meat again, and I developed a candy-crush addiction that my beloved fiance’ described as “riiiii-diculous” (bless his cotton socks).

With the start of the new school year fast approaching (marking the beginning of the end for my teaching degree), I have had to snap myself out of the candy-crush playing, walking-dead watching pillow fort I have come to call home and re-energise myself, change my perspective as it were, so that I am ready to be the best student teacher I can be for the brave little high-schoolers soon to walk across the thresh-hold of my classroom.

I realise that the less stuff I do, the less energy I have to do stuff.

For example, if I lie around in bed until 10am, then I take longer to energise myself, every little thing seems like a chore and the day is done and dusted before it’s even begun. However, if I get up at 6am, take the doggos for a run and do some yoga, I am more likely to want to keep doing stuff for the remainder of the day.

So with my new found energy I have decided it is time to come out of hibernation and set myself up for the year with an entirely new perspective. To accompany this new found train of thought I have developed a set of mantras that I will endeavour to live by in 2019;

  1. I will be kind
  2. I will be patient
  3. I will practice yoga everyday, even when I’m sleepy
  4. I will go to Church as much as I can, even when I’m sleepy
  5. I will write down 3 things I am thankful for every evening before I go to bed


As the year goes on I am certain that this list, like me, will grow and change until eventually it will have morphed into something entirely new.

Do you have any changed perspectives that will help guide your journey in 2019?

Have a beautiful day
