Some of you may have seen me share this news online earlier. I’ve been keeping it offline while I told friends and family in person. But I can now tell you guys that Jon and I are getting married.

Our wedding date is set for October 25th, 2014. A little less than a year from now, during Australia’s springtime. We have booked the venue at a beautiful quiet spot in the town where we both grew up and spent time together as teenagers.

"The proposal" was a reflection of us as a couple. Sitting by a lake on a sunny day at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, I asked him to marry me, and he asked me to marry him. We both said yes!

I hate, hate, hate the notion that women displaying their sexuality as a performance for the consumption of others is somehow empowering.”

More often than not it is not even “their” sexuality, it is a formulaic construction of an industrial view of how women’s sexuality should be constructed and consumed.”

Perfect Melbourne.

How can I become a content person?

Get away from people who hurt you in any way. Eat well and drink lots of water. Read uplifting literature and listen to top thinkers speak, particularly spiritual ones. Forgive anyone who hurt you or wronged you in the past. Think more highly of yourself and those you love. Honour your body — accept its imperfections, embrace the changes it goes through, and don’t allow others to dishonour it. Take long baths. Drink lavender tea. Study a subject you love. Lie in the sun whenever it’s out. Do selfless acts for others. Find time each day to sit alone and just breathe.
