Every moment, unique in its own. Life is beautiful.

Don't Judge me 'cos I'm AWESOME!

After breaking up from a long term relationship, feeling rather down about my self image and self worth, I went through a stage of wondering why can't I find someone that will tell me that I'm BEAUTIFUL, or a NICE person, or that I am the one who MATTERS to them....


Realisation hit me in the face, "If no one else will tell you Sarah, tell yourself! And don't just say it, BELIEVE it!!!" 

So for the last six months I have been on a journey to not only rediscover the person I am, (Who is quite great by the way!) But to also give myself the ego boosts I deserve! 

It's not at all obnoxious or "uppity" to say how great of a person you are, if it's the truth! 

If you know that you're a good person, that you and Karma are on good terms, then why not tell yourself so!
 and while you're there, tell others, most likely they'll agree!!!

Where I Live...

Ok, so a beautiful friend in Sydney has always wondered why I am so relaxed and a laid back person that doesn't get caught up in the B.S. of life...
After years of asking when she is going to come visit my home town, she finally made the trip down...
She saw the water, and said, "This is why you are the person you are"...

I had never really thought about it before that, but the water has always been my calming medium... I come down to this place when I feel stressed, or lonely, or just when I need to feel like I am the only person in this world....

Where do you go to escape the world, or get closer to it? :)

Hello rain, We've met before!?

I know that rain can get a bit much when it's day after day, but as my motto goes, Life as a sunset, you've got to find the beautiful things within the everyday...

I took two steps outside my door and found a spider burying itself in a web from a chair to the pylon, it was gorgeous, the way the water droplets captured the light... I just had to get my camera out and see if  I could do it justice!

What do you think?
What do you like about the rain?

Happy Hands

What has been making me happy of late?

Well, I would have to say, these gloves!

I have started Mixed Martial Arts Training, (MMA), whenever I put these gloves on, everything else disappears and it's just me and the bag, or the pads, or person in front of me.
There's really no feeling like throwing the hardest straight punch you have and feeling the power you have within your own body!
Knowing what my body is capable of, and still more to come, is such a confident feeling, I feel strong within myself physically, mentally and emotionally....

If you're on the south coast of NSW, look up DigMartialArts on facebook, or Team Dig page....

What does life as a sunset mean?

(Photo taken by Sarah, Me!)
Life as a sunset- Have you ever watched a sunset and thought, this will be the last time I ever see this exact moment, these colours, these clouds, this once in a lifetime view...
Yes a sunset comes every night, you can almost count on the exact time it will set, but it doesn't matter how many sunsets you've seen, no two will ever be alike!

This is the way I like to treat life, each moment you experience, each time you see a smile on a loved one's face, each step you see a small child make, yes it will more than likely happen again, but never in the same beautiful way again....
Each moment in life is precious, to be remembered and cherished, for good or for worse, each moment is its own....

52 Week Challenge, weeks 1-4

So I am stealing this idea from the first blog I have ever read, which was about an hour ago!Chantelle (fat mum slim), is taking on a challenge to take one picture each week for 52 weeks..
I have decided to something of the same, except I will be doing self portraits....
The reason I have decided this, is well, for the confidence!! When I bought my camera, and was taking photo's I thought, "Great! I get to take the photos, which means I don't have to be in them!"
But now, after a few months of self loathing and destruction, I have been piecing myself back together, this is a year for me! I declare 2010, a year of ME!!
I have been doing all the things that make me feel good about myself, losing weight, getting fit, staying away from negativity, taking photos...
So why not document the journey!! :D
Well, I am going to go find some photo's that are dated from each week of the year so far instead of catching up, I'll stay true to the challenge and find the pics, Wish me luck!! :D

Ok, so I never said the pics would be pretty! or perfect! But this is how I want it, just a documented picture of what was going on in my life at that particular time!

Week 1 is the bottom one, With the aviators and cruiser being the latest, So far....
And no, that is not my tat, i like to photoshop :)

Let the Blogging Begin!

Well, Hello there!!

I am new at this and have just been introduced to the world of blogging!
Not too sure on what to add or talk about, but hey if there are suggestion or ideas, swing 'em this way!
No doubt I will add some ramblings of what I believe in, photo's, and my idea of the world!!
I am at a stage in my life where I am getting my feet back on the ground, learning who I am and trying to stick with it!

I find that it is very easy to lose ourselves, we become swayed by influences that lead us to forget what we believe in and stand for in life....
Well, any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! :D
