I have noticed a lot of bandster blogs have chosen a word to symbolise 2010 and when I saw this I knew right away what word I choose.


I have felt constrained by my weight and other lifestyle choices (ie. mistakes) for a long time now and 2010 is finally the year to break free and make some changes.

My first decision was to quit my job and be free from the responsibility and stress. When I quit my job I was expecting my boss to say 'OK, fuck off and good riddance', instead they made me an offer to go on my holiday and then come back. Hmmm. Then they took it to another level and offered me a promotion and for me to work over in Canada and pay for my trip. It was an offer that was extremely hard to say no to and I agonised for 24 hours before I came back and said 'thanks, but no thanks'. I'm trying to change my life and if I don't do it now, who knows if I ever will.

So that is one major step toward feeling free and there are a few more things that I want to do:

~ Move out of my boring house in the suburbs- I'm moving out when I go to the US and Canada and I'll get a new place in the city when I get back.

~ Go travelling- The tickets are booked and I'm leaving on 19th March!

~ Get my drivers licence- I'm having lessons, I'll get there...

~ Lose 25 kilos- To finish off the year at about 75 kilos.

If I can do all this I think I'll feel a greater sense of freedom than I can ever remember.


  1. WOW! How great to know they don't want to let you know. Hows that for affirmation of a job well done. And they offered Canada? I would have been hard pressed not to say no to that one: but I totally get where you are coming from. You've made a decision (a great one, too!!) and are following through. Congrats.

  2. *Don't want to let you GO..* sheesh, what was I thinking there!! lol sorry

  3. Freedom gives you the keys to anything you desire.

    Awesome word.

  4. I love your word! And I love even more that you are moving back to the city after your travels. :D


  5. To give u pi your job & go to Canada was a HUGE decision - to turn down the offer from your employers to pay for the trip and give you a job - that was Friggin BRAVE!!! Good on you - this is going to be your year and you are in control of it. You will achieve all those goals and have a great time doing them.

  6. Freedom is an awesome word! You have a lot of spunk :)

  7. You are one of the bravest people I know! That is amazing! You're a superstar!


  8. I love even more that you are moving back to the city after your travels
