Get Behind – Blue September!

Blue September is a fun way of delivering a serious message about ‘facing up to cancer in men’.

Why BLUE?

Blue is for men and we lose too many of them to prostate, lung, skin, bowel and testicular cancer.

Did you know?

1 in 2 Australian men will have been diagnosed with cancer at some stage of their life by age 85.

Each year, more than 22,000 Australian men die of cancer.Even though less than half of the Australian population are men, more men than women are diagnosed with cancer each year.

Some of the most common cancers causing death in men are: lung cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, melanoma and testicular cancer. Unfortunately the list doesn’t stop there. There are many other cancers that commonly affect men, have a high mortality rate and which are often preventable through lifestyle choices. These include cancers of the kidney,
liver, head and neck, oesophagus and bladder.

Help raise funds for cancer research and GET BLUE this September!

Help the ones you love in your life with education, support, donations or create a fundraising account!

‎’I am not a learned person in any shape or form. To me, the secret is being happy, doing charity work, staying healthy & being positive,’ … ‘The secret to a long & healthy life is to be stress-free. ‘If there’s something you can’t change then why worry about it? Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from people who are negative, stay smiling & keep running.’ – Fauja Singh

What is happiness or success to you? Pleasure or Pain?

“Successful people admire other successful people; unsuccessful people resent them. If you view wealthy people as bad in any way, you can never be rich, because how can you be something you don’t like?” – T. Harv Eker

“Happy people admire other happy people; unhappy people resent them. If you view happy people as bad in any way (no matter what it is to the individual that makes them happy or successful; family, community work, achievements, money, career, their looks, their friends….), you can never be happy, because how can you be something you don’t like?”

Who’s to say what is real and not real, or important or not important, successful or not successful to them but the individual themselves with what they know in the present moment?

Is it OK to be happy, successful and have money as long as long as you do not RELY on this for inner happiness?
The Dalai Lama is one of the happiest people and his organisation one of the wealthiest in the world, having won numerous awards and is surrounded by luxury, people pay top dollar to listen to him speak about inner peace … yet his life is based on Three Main Commitments for his inner happiness and not the above.

There are so may ways to feel rich inside.

What is happiness or success to you? Pleasure or Pain? And who is the judge ….. you??? Do you make conscious decisions? or follow the opinions of others?

[Anthony Robbins]

How cool is this, if I wasn’t going on holidays for two weeks I would SO do this!!!!!! Always next year!

Live Below the Line is an incredible new awareness and fundraising campaign that’s making a huge difference in the fight against extreme poverty.  

“Join thousands of Australians Living on $2 of food a day for 5 days and help fight extreme poverty.”
If Hugh Jackman can do it, I could do it!

$10 for groceries for 5 days, hhhmmmmmm I think I would require frozen vegies, lots of bread (fills me up), pasta, eggs & some oats.

Ok I just did a dummy Woolworths Shop Online:

Homebrand Vegetables Mixed 1kg   – $1.71
2 x Homebrand Bread – White Sandwich 700g  – $1.29
2 x Homebrand Pasta Spirals Small 500g  – $0.65 each
Homebrand Eggs 12 700g  – $2.91
Homebrand Oats Rolled 750g  – $1.28

TOTAL: $9.78
(22 cents left over for some choc drops from the corner store! OMG NOICE!)

Brekkie: Oats, Boiled Egg & Piece Of Toast
Lunch: Boiled Egg Sandwich
Dinner: Pasta Sandwich & Vegies!

YUMMY!

 

The week of Live Below the Line is a week like no other. From May 16th – 20th, thousands of Australians will spend just $2 each day on food, and use their daily experiences to bring extreme poverty to the centre of conversation in homes around Australia.

Earth Hour 2011

Once again I participated in Earth Hour at 8.30pm, Saturday 26th March.

I was away for the weekend at Bargara with my parents and their friends. I made everyone turn the lights off (and the football on TV! LOL) and we played a game of five handed 500 cards in the dark for an hour.
We had a small lamp I brought, a torch and my iphone torch for light. I brought a couple of candles but forgot a lighter! I didn’t think till after that I could have lit the candles with the toaster!
Needless to say some were glad when the hour was up! LOL!
I had a ball, there were some pretty funny calls as we couldn’t see our cards properly!

Smells Like Team Spirit!!!

Ok, I’ve registered for another little challenge with my adventurous friends Scott and Tania. We will be taking part in a 30km trail run in D’Aguilar State Forest at Brisbane on the 29th of May.

We will be participating in the INAUGURAL KOKODA CHALLENGE BRISBANE and raising money for the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program.  Our contribution is helping young people to gain confidence, direction, life skills, new friends and the knowledge that anything is possible!!!
Helping Aussie teenagers to reach their full potential – Our efforts are having a direct impact on a young person’s life!

If you would like to make a donation to support us and this Awesome cause (like the fabulous Toni & Rosie have!) please click HERE!

Our team name: Smells Like Team Spirit’ is based on the famous song by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ which was very cool when I was a teenager.
On April 8, 1994, at age 27, Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, the victim of what was officially ruled a suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth aged from 15  to 24 years especially with bullying on the rise whether from peers or social media or just life’s pressures; affecting their self confidence, self worth and provoking feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, depression and loss of direction in life.
The word teen was substituted with team, cause that’s what we are and the funds raised are going to support teens and their self esteem, it’s all really very universal and interconnected!!

…. Bring it on, I / we can’t wait!

MAY 29, 2011 MARKS THE INAUGURAL KOKODA CHALLENGE BRISBANE.

In honour of the Kokoda Spirit, this new 30km event winds through some of Brisbane’s toughest terrain.

The track undulates through the green scenery in the west of Brisbane Forest Park.  Starting at Brookfield showgrounds you and your team will make your way up to the half way checkpoint at McAfee’s Lookout before returning to showgrounds via the tropical terrain of D’Aguilar National Park that is reminiscent of the Owen Stanley Ranges in Papua New Guinea.

The 30k distance coupled with wide open fire trails makes this the perfect event for beginners or runners having a hit out. Teams of two, three and four will find the course is not without toils, as you descend down to a creek bed you encounter a sharp turn onto a narrow trail aptly named ‘hell hole’ – ensuring that you don’t forget the meaning of endurance before arriving at the finish line.
