I haven’t blogged for a little while (I am learning to honour this cyclical nature of my creativity), but here I am – called to express myself again. When I opened up the blank document to write this blog I didn’t intend to write about my year in review or a look forward into 2020.…Read More
Self-compassion is a fairly new concept for me, but in my opinion it should be something we all learn to cultivate in our lives. Unfortunately self-compassion can sometimed be viewed as a sign of weakness (according to society), or thought of as “feeling sorry for ourselves” or holding us back from “getting on with it”.Read More
It’s the quiet after the creation. My energy is depleted. I never want to do that again (I know I never mean it). But let’s begin at the beginning. I am full of energy and feeling good. Light. Effortless. Free of procrastination. A sense of having let go of stress, worry and fear. I have…Read More
Journaling. I am in awe of how it can unlock parts of you that you didn’t know were there. You can peel back the layers (lot’s of layers… in fact there are an endless number of them). There is so much to learn about ourselves and most of us have barely scratched the surface.Read More

What does your heart say? She will let you know what you truly want.
What does your that feeling in your tummy say? Your intuion? She will let you know the step to take.
Go back to your head and let her know what she needs to make happen.
My heart bursts. Excited, child-like wonderment. It feels all the feelings. It is where my values, ideals, dreams and hopes lie. How am I ever going to do all of the things it is tugging me towards. Does it not know I can’t possibly do all of it at once?Read More
I am going to admit something here. I am not yet comfortable using the term “self care”. I have no issue with others using it. But when I say it, or read where I have written it in past blog posts, well I feel really funny. Uncomfortable. I feel fake. I don’t feel like it…Read More
Sometimes I love to organise. Sometimes I am excited to declutter. It is a fleeting urge that goes away unless I take action straight away. If I give in to this urge, then momentum builds and a lot of overhauling takes place. Usually I end up overdoing it and become exhausted.Read More
