The year that was & the year that will be

Around Christmas I always feel a wave of nostalgia as I discuss with friends and family what happened over the year. The effect is probably increased by the television segments of ‘2018 in News’ which showcase our Prime Minister changing 4 times, royal weddings & the private life of Karl Stefanovic, just to boost the ratings of shows that wouldn’t survive without it. Whether its news scripts or chats with loved ones I love looking back on what was and reflecting about the greatest moments, the greatest fails and the biggest surprises before moving on to the new year. So here is my 2018 recap.

2018 was a year I could describe in one word- TRUST.

Christmas Magic

Miracle on 34th Street is a story about a little girl who believes in Santa Claus while some adults don't, mainly Susan's mum. Santa is criticised, often described as 'fake, ridiculous, something not worth believing in because it let's you down'.

The business mindset

I started building my business in 2015, bit by bit the Julia Trask brand was created. I had successes and failures, amongst it all I learnt how different the business mindset is compared to anything else.

How many of you would say that you excel at ‘adulting?’ Personally I believe that adulting is a super wanky (excuse my French) way to say ‘I am super responsible and fairly boring’. Life isn’t about proving how responsible you are, life is meant to be enjoyed. Life is meant to be FUN. How are you enjoying your life?

Why journaling is a self care tool you need!

'I need to get this off my chest. It's really bugging me but what if they think I'm crazy when I tell them how I really feel?' You've probably said this phrase before, if not aloud you've said it to yourself. We often crave a confidante who we can share our secrets with, to offload how we feel because we know that we when do this we will feel 1000x better than before however we frequently worry about how we will be received by the person we talk to. This is why I love journaling (and that I'm that confidante for people when they need it).

How capable are you?

Capability is your ability to perform. This can be your ability to perform academically, socially, professionally, financially, physically and sexually. How capable you consider yourself to be depends on who you listen to. When you listen to anyone other than yourself you will define your capabilities based on someone else’s version of success

Inferiority is a choice

Maybe I am meant to feel inferior as a woman but I have to tell you, I don't. It's not because I haven't felt my fair share of criticism or judgement for being considered less than I am its simply because I know I am no less than anyone. Over International Women's Week this past week I have enjoyed interviewing a couple of women about how they positively impact the world, I have looked back and laughed on the moments I was underestimated and what I've revelled in is the reality that I don't feel small because I have never believed in playing small.
