Wowzers its almost 2015. With so much ahead of me this year but no confirmed plans I thought I would instead show you my inspiration for 2015 travels. I can’t wait to read about everyone’s travel plans in this link-up (secretly its always a good way to discover new destinations!) and then the follow up posts throughout the year with highs, lows and hilarious mishaps.

On a side note I want to say a massive thank-you to my fellow link-up hosters Kelly and Emma. This has grown from a small wish talked about over tea, into over 200 posts added by around 50 bloggers. I’ve been a bit elusive this year with my new job taking up my time, and Kelly and Emma have not only kept me sane but kept this link-up running like a well oiled machine. You girls rock my New Years socks.

Happy 2015 y’all!

Reach just that little bit further

Time to take that first step

Be brave with your life poster

Everyone is scared by something. Scared may be a big word for it, but everyone has those situations that they avoid, or just never felt possible for them. When confronted by one of these situations your insides all of a sudden try and move one foot to the left and your brain feels like it is being squeezed through a flimsy buttonhole. Believe it or not, this is a good thing.

Some of the scariest things I have done have had the most magical results; leaving New Zealand, being picky when it comes to jobs, starting to sell my jewellery, meeting other bloggers and trying leeks to name a few.

The only thing that was actually limiting me was –I don’t know, I guess you would call it a mental block. It is the hardest thing in the world to break through at first, but once you break it once it becomes easier and easier.

The first brave decision you make will be a big moment, its like climbing your own personal Everest. After that? Well, you almost don’t need to be brave anymore, because anything is possible.

To be brave you have to back yourself in the fight, convince yourself that you can try and you can succeed.

Stop thinking you can’t. You can and you will.
