So some of you may know about the challenge I set close to the beginning of this year, to give myself 12 months to genuinely invest into my health and wellbeing on a physical level. After years of investing emotionally, mentally and spiritually, I thought it was time to invest physically to help complete the picture.Read More
Have you ever come across someone painfully positive? You know... most likely whilst you were dealing with a real-life moment and they said something to you that was about as helpful as a unicorn pooping butterflies, and you wanted to slap them in the face?Read More
I look in the mirror and feel a little horrified by the foreign shape looking back. I used to be fit, toned, highly active; obsessed with the number of runs I had achieved, the number of hours I had worked out, the value on the scales. Many years, and two kids later, I stand in front of my reflection and pause for an honest moment for the first time in a very long time...Read More

What is the goal? What are the words that will be written on your tombstone? What legacy do you want to leave behind?
All the fussing about how we look, how we feel, what we have, as we try and approach a sense of beauty, or even the fuss about how our lives look...Read More

Over the last month I have been trying to get back into the groove of things.
And that involves getting involved with one of my most challenging choices: creating habits. But not just creating habits, being aware of habits and how they effect who I am & what I want to be...Read More
I was just having one of those moments, that lasts longer than a moment and sort of hangs about waiting for you to either be defeated by it, or, kick it to the curb and keep on moving, onwards and upwards!Read More
It is one thing to seek freedom for our own life; to let go of things holding us back. But it is on a whole new level of maturity, dignity and integrity to be able to take full responsibility for our own happiness, releasing people from any expectations we hold over them –to set them free.

I have been seeing a phycologist. I am definitely not afraid to admit it... But I am afraid to admit what I learnt recently.
I went to her to try and work through some grief, a few fears & a great sadness that hit hard after my family went through several tragedies, one being an ongoing battle for little Evie's life (my 3-year-old niece)...Read More
It is a New Year, which means I have just put another year of lessons learnt, a few more notches in my understanding around sarcasm, a slight decrease in agility, a few new wrinkles, and if I'm lucky some extra pearls of wisdom under my belt. And I feel none the wiser...Read More
