Love. Romance. I’m definitely not an expert in either, and I have definitely spent far too much of my life hiding behind idealism and romantic fantasy. It could never be as good as it is in my head so why bother, right? Wrong! I am choosey, but not in a shallow way. I only want… Read More Love. Romance. What’s it all about?
Releasing attachment to the outcome is a concept that, for a while, I found it difficult to wrap my mind around. How can you be focused and motivated about your goals or your desires and not be attached to the result? How can you practice visualisation and manifestation and not want the exact thing you… Read More Letting Go of the Outcome
An Ode to Wild Woman (on Wrekin hill). Wandering the wild took her closer to home; it allowed her to find more than she’d ever known. As the wind swept on by she started to see more than views on high, she saw what she could be. Wild and free. Wild and free. Her feet… Read More An Ode to Wild Woman
I can’t believe that we’re coming to the end of another year. This post-Christmas, pre-New Year time is a veritable cocktail of emotions as we look at what has been and think about what there could be to come. I myself feel a mixture of pride for what I achieved, lamentations for what didn’t work… Read More End of Year Thoughts
I went to a riveting panel discussion recently regarding our relationship with Nature. We’re not talking about gardens here, or pleasure walks at the local National Trust: we’re talking about wild, non-cultivated, unencumbered, there-might-be-a-bear-in-the-woods Nature. One of the speakers, Nina Lyon, made a comment about our inability to get truly lost in our home country… Read More The Importance of Getting Lost
So, after a short hiatus that turned into a long hiatus, I finally feel I have my writing mojo back! Hurray! How wonderful it feels to have the creativity flowing again. For quite a while this year I felt blocked, unable to formulate my thoughts into concrete sentences. There have been a lot of changes… Read More I’m back!
No matter what else is going on in your life, be the person who fights for you. I know this isn’t always easy, especially for people who have to face a lot of strife and difficulty inflicted by others, but you have the right to be your own heroine. Treat yourself with kindness, spread love… Read More Monday Sunshine
Be completely honest and non-judgemental when reflecting this weekend. We often make choices or create habits that don’t help us to reach inner peace. This is OK – it’s all about learning. Look at what you need to do, and then ask yourself how you can make any changes, let things go, or implement new… Read More Weekend Journaling
So, as those of you who have been following me for a while know, I spent the first part of this year travelling around New Zealand. What a FANTASTIC way to kick the year off with new experiences, adventures, new friends, new levels of confidence and a deeper understanding of myself. But, as we are… Read More Adjusting to life back in an office!
If you’ve been watching The Handmaid’s Tale – the dramatization of Margaret Atwood’s iconic novel of the same name – I am sure you will feel this statement as powerfully as I do. I would like to stand on the edge of a mountain and scream it as loudly and proudly as my lungs could muster (there’s… Read More Monday Sunshine – A Woman’s Place
