Moving through Difficult Days

February 15, 2018 1:14 pm

I want to talk to you about the times where fear and overwhelm creep in. The place inside your mind that may include the sentence ‘What if life is always this way?’ It seems to come when you’ve had one too many bad weeks after another. Maybe it dawns on... View Article

Do You Embrace or Resist Rest?

January 18, 2018 5:59 pm

It continues to surprise me, how so many of us fiercely resist rest. In society today, it’s as if  ‘being busy’ is seen as good and ‘doing nothing’ is bad. I’m not sure where this belief came from, but its definitely there. Personally, even though I live with chronic illness... View Article

It’s been so long since I last checked in here. So today, I decided I was going to write a post, no matter what (although it actually ended up taking a few days to write this post in little chunks…but you know what I mean!) I wanted to say hi... View Article

How much should we share on Social Media?

May 31, 2017 7:47 am

This is something that I’m sure many of you will have thought about at some point. How much should we actually share on social media? Should we share the good stuff? The bad days? The bits in between? How much should we filter? My friend Carly and I were chatting... View Article

Words on The Healing Journey

‘For a Seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes.
