About Me

I have always been someone who hates the idea of classifying myself as something, I think because there are so many different sides to me (as there is to anyone) that no one thing truly explains who I am.

 

I guess I can explain myself as someone who has never had that one thing they are amazing at, that thing that really resonates with them. I have never been the best or really good at anything, ever! When I was young this used to frustrate me, but now I see that while I can't seem to master anything, I am more a jack of all trades. Since I don't have the one thing that I am excellent at or singly passionate about, I have more time to try and experience so many other things.

 

So here are some things about me that hopefully help to give you a more rounded understanding of who I am!

  • I am Australian I grew up and live by the beach

  • I have 3 older brothers, the world biggest extended family, a husband, a cat that I found in my roof, and a Hungarian Vizsla (Velcro dog)!

  • I work in Market Research and have been a CEO since I was 23

  • I practice yoga and became a qualified yoga teacher in 2016

  • I started Majestic Pod Yoga Studio where I teach yoga by donation to Headspace

  • I suck at running and did a half marathon to see if I could change that, didn't work!

  • I love to snowboard

  • I am pretty sure I am mildly dyslexic, which you will discover through my writing!

  • I go to the gym regularly, mainly for cardio and strength classes

  • I am a massive worrier, anxiety is the bane of my existence at times

  • I got my bronze medallion in Life Saving when I was 16, but haven't done patrol in years

  • I am arty, I paint, photograph and just love to create

  • Travel is one of the most important things in my life, and this is probably an understatement!

  • I used to play Water Polo and Netball, but now I hate been tied down on weekends so don't do any more team sports

  • I have done two short triathlons, I love them and want to do more but they are hard to train for!

  • I love hiking and camping, but I am yet to combine the two, as I haven't warmed up to the idea of carrying my tent for hours!

  • I am a music lover, I am one of those people who really listens and connects to lyrics in songs

  • I super love swimming, both in a pool and the ocean

  • I am not a perfectionist at all, I am more of a doer. Just start, then you can refine and grow

  • I have my open water cert in diving, I love being under water

  • I love fashion, especially ethical fashion

  • Trying to comprehend Space and the Universe actually freaks me out! It's too big, lets never talk about it again!

  • If something works for me, I love to share it with others. Knowledge kept to yourself is wasted.

 

This list is forever changing and growing. One thing always leads to another, and that in turn changes the shape of what I am about. My anxiety is what pushed me to excel at work, my responsibilities at work were (and still are) tough and this is what led me to yoga to cope with it. Yoga led me to becoming a yoga teacher and that led me wanting to share it with others and creating Majestic Pod. A similar thing happened with my fitness, been inspired by a friend to do a beginners triathlon led me to completing two 1km ocean swims, a half marathon, and a sprint length triathlon. All of this has then led me to hiking, and now planning trips around hiking overseas. I used to be adamant that I was not a long distance kind of person so these things never crossed my mind as possible for me, but saying yes just once can lead you to places you never knew were possible.

 

I have created this page as another creative outlet to write about the things that are important to me, share my experiences and talk about the things I find interesting.  I hope others can realise like I have that you can do anything wholeheartedly just because you love it, that you don't need to work in the area of your other passions in order for you to have a reason to pursue them as much as you like.
