There is a delicate, divine and delicious energy balance within us that can be looked at through the lens of feminine and masculine energies. Many people believe that at our core, we individually exhibit either a masculine or a feminine essence, but we all have elements of both. Now to be clear, we’re not talking […]
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a strong sense of – and deep connection to – my sexuality, spirituality and creativity. But throughout most of my life, these integral parts of my being have (in my mind) been at odds with one another: players on different teams, different worlds. I saw […]
Have you ever wondered who you are? Have you ever struggled with identity or longed to know what your purpose in this life is? I certainly have – many, many times – and I have a feeling you might have too. Let’s see… At twenty-four I quit my job, sold my car, broke up with my […]
You know, 2015 was bloody wonderful, but it took me by surprise in a lot of ways. Much of what I planned and envisioned, never eventuated. Plenty of goals weren’t reached. Major ideas were tossed out. Stuff derailed. As they say, “We plan, God laughs” but I’d like to add: “yet always gives us what we need.” Because I […]
I am no stranger to prayer; growing up, I attended church every Sunday – well into my high school years in fact – and I have always had a running dialogue with God. Whether it be frustrations scrawled in my journal, soft ‘thank you’s’ forming in my mind, or spoken out loud with family and friends, prayer is […]
As you know, to celebrate my recent 29th birthday, I wrote a list of things I’d like to do before I turn 30. Reading a book a week for the next year was one of them (and honestly, it is probably my favourite challenge on the list) and I love that it has piqued your interest. It […]
Before leaving for Berlin, I’d heard the city described by some as ‘soooo beautiful’ and by others as ‘really stark and ugly’. Ha!
So after 10 delicious days exploring Berlin for myself, I guess I would say that it’s… both. Or as the charismatic Klaus Wowereit (prior mayor of Berlin) so famously put it: “Berlin is poor, but sexy.”
Either way, I fell head over heels (or really, warm winter boots) in love with the German capital. Berlin’s energy is electric; there is so much life, so much buzz and possibility, so much to be enchanted by.
Here are a few reasons (and lots of photos) to shed some light on why I left a chunk of my heart in this eclectic city.
You’re a storyteller, a communicator, a lover of self expression and the proud owner of a curious, creative heart. You know that when you feel good, you do great work in the world. Being out in nature and exploring the world inspires you, and you feel most like yourself when you’ve got pen to paper […]
Breaking business records, success and behind the scenes of This is Lifeblood: Alice Nicholls interviews me!
Last month I celebrated my one year anniversary since leaving my “day job” and launching into the world of full time self-employment. And so far, so good! Actually, it really is just SO good.
I love working for myself. I love my clients, I love creating and writing and coaching and at this point in my life, I can’t imagine going back to work for anyone else. The feeling of supporting myself 100% and the freedom this work provides for me… Leaves me a little speechless.
Well, that last part isn’t entirely true because my incredibly successful and wonderful friend Alice Nicholls recently interviewed me for her latest online course Hello Blog Academy and I had a LOT to say!
I’ve become more comfortable with simple, natural expansion this year. Evolution is normal; it’s the way things are done. So why do we block and resist it so much? We’re so inclined to limit ourselves, yet the truth is that we are HERE to expand and grow and change.
And life flows like a river when we welcome that truth and give ourselves permission to stretch into new possibilities and experiences.
Which is why I’ve made a few life upgrades recently. I thought I’d share them with you here today. You might even like to try one or two.
