A story about a break-up.

A story about a break-up … 3 months ago today, it was Christmas Day, and I was shattered. On Christmas Eve last year, I broke up from a 6 year de facto relationship – the man I thought I would marry and probably have a child with (even though, deep down, we had both known differently for a little while)....

You are needed in the universe

If you weren’t needed in the universe, you wouldn’t be here.

Dear Amazing Human, I just wanted to remind you of this TRUTH: If you weren’t needed on this planet … you wouldn’t be here.  You play an integral role in this world, in YOUR world. An ever-important part. There are countless people whose lives you enrich, simply by being yourself. There are countless people whose energy you uplift, through your...

Burnout

Burnout: when people around you don’t get it.

Have you ever felt like the weirdo within your life, because you had (or have) ‘less energy’ than other people around you?  Have you ever experienced a burnout, and felt completely alone because people didn’t get it, wouldn’t acknowledge it, and couldn’t understand it? If you ever feel like the over-emotional, over-sensitive one within the groups / families / communities...

What are you no longer willing to tolerate

What are you no longer willing to tolerate?

What (if anything) is making you feel MOST resentful in your life right now? What really ticks you off, makes you feel like you’re a living doormat (getting walked all over), and where do you feel like your boundaries are forever being crossed? Does anything come to mind? If so, I invite you to consider this a sacred message from your...

Trusting yourself

Trusting yourself in a noisy world.

It can be really hard to trust yourself (your inner knowing, your intuition), in a world that is literally a SEA of noise and opinions. As I personally move through a period of my life that is filled with change and transformation, my mantra lately has had to be (by sheer necessity!), I trust myself. I keep having to come...

Is having it all coming at a cost

Is ‘having it all’ coming at a cost?

Do you always feel like you have too many ‘things’ on the go, too many places to be, and too many responsibilities and commitments to fulfil (many of them not even essential)? Do you often feel resentment at the amount of things on your ‘life plate’? If so, I invite you to consider this: Is trying to ‘have it all’ coming at a cost to your health,...

Stop bending yourself backwards

Is it time to stop bending yourself backwards, for everyone but yourself?

Are you struggling with overwhelming stress, and hormonal imbalances? I lived with female hormonal imbalances and an overactive stress response for years, before I ever learnt what was actually going on in my body. And discovered that the way I was feeling, was, in fact, so far from the way my body is actually designed to feel. I am so...

Life is too short

Life is too short for dilly-dallying.

Have you ever (finally) taken a leap of faith, or made a long-awaited change, or done something you thought was a little ‘radical’ … and then wished you’d done it SO much sooner? The thing with humans is … Most of us know when we want to (or NEED to) make change …. but we can get stuck when we...

Boundaries

Boundaries can be safe, healthy, and necessary.

Do you feel fear when you know, intuitively, you need to (gently) enforce a boundary? Oftentimes, we can be scared to set the boundaries that we know (deep down) we need to set … because we don’t want to come across as mean. Or unkind. But, truly, there is ALWAYS a kind way to set a boundary. Boundaries don’t have...

In defence of myself

In defence of myself.

(Please, can we just be kind to each other??). More and more, on the social medias, I get accused of being a ‘selfish millennial’ trying to ‘make a buck’ on my beliefs which are ‘unfounded and helping no one’. Or versions of that.  (That rant in particular was one of the most interesting I have received thus far, and I...
