Planning and Productivity as a Creative Introvert – My current perspective

I feel like I’ve suddenly had an aha moment. Growing up and in my early twenties I was good at planning, loved routine and structure and thrived on it. I wasn’t the ambitious sort, and I have never liked busyness, but I was always prepared and on top of what I needed to get done.…

Taking Action Towards Big Visions – and my challenges around this

So often I see other women in their business journey talk of goals, and specifically in breaking them down into actionable steps. Planning, scheduling content, content creation calendars etc. Everyone “seems” so in their element. And I am left on wonderment.

Self Compassion – It’s okay not to feel okay

It’s okay not be okay. It’s okay not to feel okay. You don’t need to give yourself a hard time for anything. Show yourself compassion. Forgive. Love. When did we become so separated?

My Unintentional Year in Review and a Look at 2020

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.…

The Power of Self Compassion

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”.

The Quiet After the Creation – My Creative Life Cycle

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…
