The world is hungry for our land. They’re coming from everywhere to buy it up – including the US, China, Europe, Australia. We have become their farm, their forestry block, their lifestyle block. Land prices are rising. Young Kiwi farmers are priced out of the market, competing with foreign money. That’s unfair. There's no more land. Other countries don't let foreigners buy up their country. A report today says foreigners' appetite for New Zealand land rose 442 per cent in the first 10 months of this year compared to the same time last year.
If you have ever wondered who is buying, check out the Overseas Investment Office, which ticks off nearly every application. It publishes a list. each month. Here's the link:

Facebook reminded me I've been a year in Greece the other day and I started thinking about what that means for me... At the start I wanted to escape sadness and pressure after everything that happened after Connor passed and I wanted to reconnect with my family here I left New Zealand extremely depressed and anxious about my life, my goals were simple to just try to be happy again in a place where people didn't assume who I was beceause of what they thought they knew about my life. This past year I've gotten to know myself a lot, I've fallen in love with a place where life is simple it's not about who's going to what event or who has the most likes on their blog or what new workout or product to checkout.
It hasn't been easy, distance puts a lot of strain of friendships and relationships and it's shown me those people who really matter to me and that will stay in my life for the long run.
Making the decision to stay in Europe gave me the chance to step back from everything that I had and who I was in New Zealand. I had the chance to get back to the basics and grow as a person, to be able step back and just listen to myself more in a more relaxed setting.
Anyone who has lost a partner will understand that when you build a life together and lose your significant other is like your life looses its point... I had to find myself again and try to figure out who I was without that person anymore and this past year I've done that. This last 12 months showed me that life will always go on, and it's for you to decide what you make of it. It's taught me how to accept myself, that I deserve to be happy and that getting some distance from your situation for anyone, reguardless of something bad happening to you or not will open your eyes and give you perspective in some way or another and I highly encourage that.
It's really shown me that you will always have the ability to grow, learn and change and if you stop doing things that are different and challenging you might get stuck and that's not a life worth living. Through every dark cloud there is a lining. Tag a friend who's been through some shit 👌🏽✌🏾️✨ #Growth #Painandloss #strength
