What a beautiful day it is. Auckland is so majestic on a Summer’s day (or should I say Springs day) when the sky is blue and scattered with white clouds and the sun is shining bright. The flower’s are so beautiful in the University, today I opened the door to find a lovely surprise from my lovely friend, Shelley :) A box of muffins (Chocolate Chip, Berry Muffin) from muffin break (www.muffinbreak.co.nz). The sweet goodness satisfied my sweet tooth a lot!
Yesterday I went to a café called Ngopi Café (www.ngopi.co.nz), one of the most creative and cosy cafes I have been to. The customer service was amazing and they made you feel right at home. All your lunch money goes to two charities – the A21 Campaign, working to prevent human trafficking, and Habitat for Humanity, which aims to provide housing for the homeless. I devoured a Chocolate Danish with my lady like eating skills.
The beauty of life is when you wake up in the morning feeling like there is something worth getting up for. It’s also the flowers that you see on the side of the road that you never noticed (may I mention they were bright purple flowers). It reminds me to take a second out of a day to notice the beauty around us that we are often so blind to, when we are caught up in our own world. I will dearly miss the New Zealand beaches, and their wonderful waters and the feeling of sinking your toes into the sand. People are genuinely friendly and laid back in New Zealand and I really notice it more when I’ve been traveling and return home.

Today I showed my friend while eating a hokey pokey Ice cream (aren’t I the biggest sweet tooth!), my drivers licence photo. I’m not too sure why. But the 15 year old Katie barely resembled me at all. How people do change so much in time. I really believe that what we feel in side reflects our outer appearance. Do you ever meet someone for the first time and make a quick judgement based on their appearance? Then, once you get to know them for a while you see them differently? I think our appearance is only temporary because our personality and our heart truly reflects who we are.
Don’t worry be happy :) God wants us to live joyful lives. He knows that everyone will go through tough times, but the important thing is how we get through it and to know that he is right there with us. He loves you more than you can ever imagine and let’s face it, believing is seeing. Faith is indeed the evidence for things which cannot be seen. Faith should come first, because we need to believe in ourselves first. In a fast paced society, many people want proof but before we can make something happen we need to believe in it and have confidence. Positivity.
What a sweet quote
I wrote your name in the sky, but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand, but the water washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it will stay.
