It is often said that moving house is one of the most stressful life events. I am sure that most would agree with this popular and widely accepted statement. What if you decided against this though, and truly wanted to defy the odds? Is it possible to move happily, without all of the angst and negativity?

Influenced in the loveliest of ways by Rachel and her Photographing Happiness project, I have used my iPhone 6 with a little more intention over the past month. It has been during a time of emotional upheaval, packing to leave Sydney, Christmas and a new year all wrapped up in doubts and hopes! I tend to like a challenge, and finding the space within this busy period of time to stop and notice the moments turned out to be the perfect antidote to overwhelm.
Honestly … I didn’t feel much of the joy that I choose to write about and focus on through my blogging this year. Looking back as 2016 comes to an end though, there is a lot to be grateful for, thank goodness for the practice of gratitude! There are days when gratitude literally saves your heart from breaking. A blogger who shares as openly, intimately and honestly as I do goes through a regular soul rattling decision making process .. to share or not to share. I pick and choose from so many emotions, daily happenings and thoughts.
