Taking the first step

Taking the first step


As the saying goes, if you always do what you have always done then you will get what you have always gotten. So if you are not happy with the results you are getting, then it’s time to take action and change your approach.

So here I am… doing something different! I have been dreaming about blogging for as long as I can remember – 4 years and 24 days to be exact! When my husband and I moved from Melbourne to London, I told myself, I am going to start a blog so I can share my new life and new adventures with my family and friends back home. Therefore, everything I did, every destination we visited, every restaurant we dined in, every fashion infatuation I had, I would profusely capture it on my camera and I would imagine how to blog about them. Each snap I would start writing about it in my mind using as colourful and creative words as I could so that my readers could share my experience. But one thing led to another, this ‘blogging’ idea became my favourite procrastination! Until now… I am determined to take action to start turning my dream and passion into a reality.

Welcome to time after time and my first post! My name is Janey and I live in London with my husband, Alan. I am totally out of my comfort zone right now!! This is actually a lot more daunting and overwhelming then I’d imagined. But as Susan Jeffers says, “feel the fear and do it anyway”. So I am committed to get over this uncomfortableness as I am really excited to see where this journey will lead me.


I will be blogging about my travels, fashion inspiration, dining experiences and everything in between balancing my corporate and social lifestyle. These are all the things I love doing time after time. I hope to use this blog as the platform for my creative outlet through writing and photography.


I hope you will come along this exciting journey with me and feel inspired to take action to pursue your dreams passionately. I hope we can share our experiences through this blogging community and together we can grow into a better version of ourselves.

What is your biggest procrastinator? What are some of the actions you took to overcome the fear of taking the first step?

Thank you for reading.
