There’s nothing like making the decision to practice the art of self-care or explore your creativity to bring up all of your STUFF. And by stuff I mean insecurities, self doubt, fear and resistance. Social media shines with crafted, glossy exteriors and it’s easy to feel as if our delightful-but-messy life, isn’t up to scratch. […]

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’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.
Often, we teach what we most need to learn. And there’s no doubt that creating my eCourse Wild, Well & Creative has been a million and one lessons, in creativity, wellness, femininity – and general project management.
Last week, after months and months (and months) of behind the scenes and sneak peaks and preparation, I threw open the doors to Wild, Well & Creative. The response has been wonderful!! I have been so honoured and excited to see so many women jumping on board to join me on this adventure, plus the encouragement and cheers around the web (and flowers delivered to my door!) have just made this experience so wonderful.
So today, as the last few days of enrolments draw to a close and I anticipate the “kick off” next week for Module One, I thought I’d share 10 of the many lessons I’ve learnt whilst creating this eCourse.
Whether you’re working on your own blog, business, eBook, eCourse, workshop – whatever (or you’re just here for the pretty pictures!), I truly hope you get something out of this.
As happens with many adolescent girls, I found myself at 15 years of age with terrible acne and was swiftly put on the contraceptive pill, which I stayed on for over 10 years. At 26, once I’d really cleaned up my diet and lifestyle, I intuitively felt that in order to feel aligned with my values of health and wellness, I’d need to stop taking this little pill every day. So I came off it.
I’m all for sharing experiences and moments with the world. And for me these days, that tends to be via this blog or my newsletter or social media. But when status updates and iPhone snaps don’t quite cut it, there’s a soft spot in my heart for painting and pasting and cutting and playing. For writing poems and taking photos on film and waiting days for them to be developed.
As Winter draws near and the days grow cold, I’ve switched up my routine to reflect the change in my sleeping patterns. Hence, my daily morning sweat has become an evening affair and I’m loving it. Normally one to walk with my earphones in (#podcastjunkie) I’ve recently taken to walking in silence. It seems one notices – and pays attention – much more this way.
And it was a few weeks ago (just after the April new moon) when I took my pup to the park to play as the sun fell. The sky quickly turned a lilac pinky-purple-y colour that no iPhone could ever capture – even with an awesome Instagram filter! The trees looked haunted and eery, but quite majestic at the same time. An owl flew above us. The air was crisp, cold, chilling. Music drifted in from the houses we strolled along and the scent of home cooking tantalised the air.
