As previously mentioned I am currently involved with an non-profit organisation who are for women in crisis pregnancies. We are in desperate need of funds to continue our work. It would be MOST appreciated if you nominated our centre in the Multichoice Care More competition. You can visit our site Seasons Crisis Pregnancy Centre.

Here There :)
WOW!! Its been forever since I have made a decent post. Its shocking :( Life has been so busy for me lately with lots of new and exciting projects that I've been involved in. The most recent, being my involvement in the realm of Non-Profit Organisations. The organisation I am currently volunteering at and in the process of raising funds for is Seasons Crisis Pregnancy Centre. Along with that I have been carrying on with my studies and will be graduating soon with my honors in psychology specializing in trauma counselling and play therapy :) Which I'm really excited about. Been a long and busy road with my studies with a fair share of set backs but in the end I realized that its all been worth it and my skills and knowledge have tripled making me both a better counselor and person.
I'm definitely going to be more active and get back into blogging. Please send me any topics that you would like me to write about.

I recently came across the blog Positively Present and have been addicted ever since!!! As you all have noticed I've been very sporadic in posing and pretty much disappeared for the most part for a number of reasons but this gem of a site deserves a mention!! So I highly recommend that you head on over and take a look through the archives.

As the lyrics from the song Collide by Howie day, "even the best fall down sometimes". As someone who rarely fails and always manages to achieve her goals I have recently suffered a setback. But more than that its the humiliation and the embarrassment that is haunting me the most. I am someone who has a tendency to beat myself up about things that don't work out. So, I'm trying my best to keep my head up and move on swiftly and placing things in order so that I can quickly fill up the void left by my failure.
Here are a few things that I am implementing to get me through this setback:
1.) ACTION: When I realized what had happened I quickly started to make inquires about what was to happen next. As well as this I also started looking into new opportunities.
2.) CRY: A good cry is sometimes a must, but don't dwell. Let yourself be sad and disappointed or whatever the feeing may be but get back up again. Hold that head high and put your thinking cap on.
3.) MUSIC: Music is something that can really have a profound effect on your mood and state of mind. So choose music that keeps your spirits up or that inspires you.
4.) ME TIME: Take a break from those around you. Regroup, take a bit of time to lick your wounds and be tender with yourself. Don't sit and wallow but acknowledge your feelings and get yourself a bit of a break, treat yourself like you would your best friend.
5.) PLAN: Start a plan of action. Evaluate the situation, the damage and your options and alternative routes. Write it all down and start moving in a new direction. Research, make phone calls and send emails to those who you think could possible open new doors for you.
What do you do when you are faced with a setback? How do you pick up the pieces?
