Endings and Beginnings

Well here we are at another Friday, the end of most peoples working week. Not so for me - for me it's the beginning of another weekend of looking after guests at "Old Chilli " in Daylesford". But this weekend I have mixed feelings as it is the last weekend I will be here in beautiful Daylesford. My mixed feelings are sadness that my wonderful 12 month adventure of managing the BnB is coming to an end, but also happiness that I am heading home and will have more time to catch up with not only my family but my friends as well.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my 12 months, I have meet some really lovely people, had experiences that I never thought I would have and proved to myself I can do anything if I put my mind to it. I did not take on this adventure as a money making venture but a personal growth venture. A couple of months ago I was at a loss as to think of any personal growth I had made over the time but in the past 8 weeks or so I have had a a few revelations both spiritually and mentally that I now know that my time in Daylesford has given me exactly what it was supposed to. Very appropriately my "Medicine Wheel" message for this month is "Success"!! Do I feel my 12 months at "Old Chilli " has been a success? Yes, definitely!!
So now I move onto my next 8 month life adventure . Why 8 months - well as of mid January 2013 Shane and I will be travelling around Australia for 12 months - so looking forward to writing about all the places we visit. So what will the next 8 months bring - I don't know but what I do know it will be an adventure! No matter what you, do make sure your life too is an ADVENTURE!!


  1. Congratulations on completing this adventure, may the next one be as much 'fun'

  2. Davine it's hard to believe that it's been a year already, time goes so quickly doesn't it? I think that's fantastic that you're going to tour around your own country, can I tag along? lol I've fallen in love with Australia, it's going to be so hard to leave, but on the other hand I can't wait to get home to my loved ones.

    I wish you all the best in your next venture, but I'm sure we'll chat before you head off... more time to blog may be in your near future? :-)

  3. Wow! Congratulations on your Wonderful Journey, Davine! I love that your Medicine Wheel theme this month is SUCCESS ... what a wonderful way to complete the circle.


I would love to hear your comments.
