New Year’s Eve 2015. A warm, playful night on the deck at home in Western Australia. I turn to my friend Janine and say “I’m done with alcohol, I’m not going to drink for awhile” and I mean it and I do it and I have only a glass of wine between that night and […]
Happy new month, happy new moon! I’m writing this in my favourite cafe, a skip along the canal from my flat and I’m drinking a soy latte that I’ll probably regret at 10pm tonight when I can’t sleep. Rebel? You know it. Today I’ve got some personal updates for you, an invitation to work with me […]
Want a peek behind the scenes of my business? A video for you! (Especially if you’re an aspiring coach)
It’s almost been four years since I started blogging / sharing online and August of 2016 marks two years since I ‘quit my day job’ and decided to take this self-employed thang full time. It’s been one hell and heaven of a ride! I wouldn’t have any of it any other way. I was recently asked some […]
No one makes the big and brave decision to work for themselves because they want to feel exhausted, uninspired and pissed off with their business. And yet, halfway through last year, I found myself feeling all of the above. I feared the romance was over. I was tired, headache-y and had this strange sense of being […]
Often, we ask others questions that we probably need to ask ourselves. Before I have my first session with my coaching clients, I send them a questionnaire that contains a few ‘getting to know you’ questions, one of them being:
What does your perfect day look like?
It is always my favourite answer to read and I believe, is the most revealing of the lot.
But it wasn’t until I had this illuminating question directed towards me in a written interview just yesterday afternoon, that I realised I hadn’t thought about my answer for some time.
What comes to mind when I think of Rachel MacDonald? I’ll start with warmth, generosity, radiance and joy. Succulents and flower crowns. An enormous grin. Visual finesse and writing prowess. Passion and purpose, love and desire, truth, freedom, gratitude and fire – in the belly. Life lovin’ seriously cranked up a notch or two (or ten).
Rach has soul. Damn, every cell in her body must vibrate to the rhythm of life. Anyone who has ever popped their head in over at In Spaces Between, Rach’s extraordinarily inspiring (and ridiculously successful) blog, will attest to her enthusiasm and unwavering conviction to live a big, beautiful life – and her ability to encourage others to do the same!
I’ve been an In Spaces Between-er for a long time and recently started blog/biz/life coaching with Rach too – which has been nothing short of exceptional. Rach lifts you up. She opens doors and melts your heart and stirs your soul and gently reminds you that life is a magical place and you my darling, you are an exquisite human. And who doesn’t like to be reminded of that?
It is of monumental excitement today that I bring you one of the most influential people in my life thus far (although really, the journey has only just begun – yes!), the brilliant and beautiful, Rachel MacDonald.
