meg.

24, travelling and working in Australia. Here are my thoughts, scriblings and pictures.

Day 100 ///100 Happy Days 

Wow… As if I’ve reached day 100. I am so incredibly proud of myself for persisting with this challenge, I know many people who gave up, which I think is an absolute shame. Giving up being happy? Madness. 
The time has actually flown by, I remember beginning this challenge back in Melbourne and thinking how long 100 days was. And now it’s over. I’m going to try to persistent with documenting my travels… So much like a post 100 Happy Days. We’ll see how that goes. 

I’m finishing this challenge much as I started it. With Emily… Every single day this girl does something to make me happy… Today, to name just one… Her fussing the dog and getting her to listen to music. I also finally received my birthday parcels, after a long month of waiting and hoping every day or was going to turn up. It was lovely to read letters and cards from my family, and to smell ‘home’ on some of the clothes I’d asked my Mom to post over. 

This challenge has made me reassess the way I live my life by forcing me to focus on the positives, even when I was struggling. Congratulations Meg, you have a fabulous life. Go and live it.

Day 99 // 100 Happy Days 

Got to catch up with my Momma for nearly 2 hours today! It was well and truly needed. Crazy how it’s the simplest of things that you miss, just being able to grab a hug when you want. Could not be more grateful for the relationship I have with this woman.

This didn’t post yesterday :(

Day 98 // 100 Happy Days 

Today was perfect. After taking Em to work I went down to the river bank with a picnic blanket, my books, ipod and everything necessary for a chilled day. 
Listening to Ben Howard peacefully, I just felt so content with my life. I had some time to myself to think about me, and it was great.

Day 96 // 100 Happy Days 

Today was a great day. I woke up to photos from my best pal telling me he’s been to see my family and this is the photo I get. I also received my post from him today that he sent 2 weeks ago. Nothing beats letters, I can’t even explain how good they are, seeing somebody’s handwriting and hearing their voice through their words. 
Also Skyping with Paul for close to two hours really did put me in a great mood!

Day 95 // 100 Happy Days 

Timing a Skype session with this little one is near enough impossible with our time difference now she’s in Prague… However this morning we managed it! 
I really do value each and every one of my friends that I’ve met through my travels, I’ve only been friends with this girl just over a year but I know she’s here for life. Sometimes you just click with people, and that should never be taken granted. 
It is inevitable when you travel that you will at some point have to say goodbye, but it can always just be see you later. 

"The bad news is nothing lasts forever. The good news is that nothing lasts forever."

Day 94 // 100 Happy Days 

Sometimes I doubt how much my friends genuinely miss me, it sounds ridiculous because I know when they’re gone I miss them. But everybody has their own lives and their own commitments and sometimes it just feels like I’m out of sight and so out of mind. It’s not a big deal, I know that they’ll be there if I need them, but it’s definitely crossed my mind. Which is what makes these messages all the more important. The value of knowing that I have an impact on somebody else’s life, it’s priceless.

Miss these beautiful buggers, the delightful humans that created yours truly. They are a rare breed my parents, incredible souls. Couldn’t be more proud to call them Mom & Dad.

Day 93 // 100 Happy Days 

I will never tire of this band. Honestly, when this album came out I wasn’t really a fan because it’s so different to their earlier stuff, but it’s definitely growing on me now. City & Colour all day every day. 
It’s put me in a very tranquil mood which I love.

Spending the day at the river. So blessed to have this around the corner from where I’m staying.

Meeting people the other side of the world that you get on crazy good with… Only to find back home you live 10 minutes from each other. The world isn’t as big as I once thought. I absolutely love travelling and finding beautiful souls.

Day 90 // 100 Happy Days 

Just booked tickets for this babyyy! Seeing Incubus in Australia with my girl, and it will be the first time she’s seen them. This is the weekend before Em has to go back to America, I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to spend our last weekend! 
I love having a credit card sometimes. Ha.
