Self-Love + Self-Care

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...

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...

Trust

Are you floating in trust, or drowning in angst?

How easy (or not!) do you find it to drop into trust?  Recently I said to a client who is going through an incredibly difficult time, and sitting with a lot of angst, ⠀ ‘If you don’t want to sit in angst, you’ve got to learn to trust’. ⠀ Because, this is what I deeply believe: When we are sitting...

Get out of your head, and into your heart

Get out of your head, and into your heart.

Overwhelm.  For those of us who struggle with it consistently (aka, feeling like you are seriously drowning within your own life), getting out of the mind-space – and into the heart-space – can be a serious challenge. Overwhelm is an insidious ‘ruiner’ of one’s day-to-day experience of life – and I barely know a woman who doesn’t tell me that this is...

Honouring yourself ... even when it's really hard

Honouring yourself … even when it’s really hard.

If you are conflict-averse (like I used to be), you may find yourself often suppressing your true needs. The thing about learning to honour yourself, is this: You must do the thing that scares you. Most of us wonderful women are kind of SCARED to honour ourselves – because honouring ourselves often means conflict. Truly honouring ourselves can often mean:...

Are you tired of being over-needed?

Are you tired of being over-needed?

/ Over-committed ⠀ / Over-needed⠀ / Over-available ⠀ ⠀ / Under-slept⠀ / Under-rested ⠀ / Under-nourished ⠀ ⠀ ^^^^ the state of so, so many modern women. Can you relate?? Every woman I work with tells me this is how she is feeling. I watch women in my personal life feel like this. I even feel like this a good...

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you

Allow your rock bottom moments to transform you.

I’ve had my fair share of rock bottom moments over the years, and I know that you have, too.  Everyone has! The ones that (literally) bring you to your knees, that make you feel as though your spirit is shattered in a million pieces. If there is one thing I honour so much about each and every person I come...
