What's your biggest regret in life?

Uncategorized Mar 20, 2019

Brene Brown's TED talk on The Power of Vulnerability had a profound impact on me. I was so intrigued about "wholehearted" living and what it means to have the experience of being "whole".

I watched it for the first time in 2012. When she shared that vulnerability is the access to connection and love, I started crying. I realised how hard it was for me to be vulnerable.

The example that she...

When was the last time you made a mistake?

We've officially entered a brand new season - I love that Mother Nature reminds us of the impermanence of all things. That there is a season for everything - and magic can be found in the new life that's about to emerge in Spring....and there is also magic to be found in witnessing the trees letting go of the old - to make time for the new. 

What if we could apply the cycle of the seasons...

They can't be your everything

Uncategorized Feb 27, 2019

I'm having a conversation with two close friends of mine about their relationships.

One says; "I'm marrying her because she is a comfortable choice. I know we will last and it'll work out. However, I don't get to have amazing and enlightening conversations with her - we just don't connect on that level... I want to be able to be under the stars and talk to her all night about everything and...

What does it mean to be loved?

Uncategorized Feb 20, 2019

One of my biggest fears in parenting is our son, Avery will feel unseen, unheard, and doesn't get a sense of being accepted and understood. The result, a life yearning and craving for validation, approval, and working through an understanding of unworthiness. 

Sounds dire right?! However, this is common and rampant amongst the condition of humanity.

Every parent is doing the best they can...

The time when I lost my $h!7!. My "not-so-proud" moments as a mother and wife.

Uncategorized Feb 13, 2019

I've missed you and I apologise for being MIA!.. Our family has just completed a 4-week journey through the magical land of Japan... and it's good to be back home.

I never thought I would say that after a trip.

Usually, I yearn for our travels to be extended. This time around, I couldn't wait to get back to routine and craved some reprieve of what was the most challenging 4 weeks as a...

Are you afraid of being selfish?

Uncategorized Jan 09, 2019

"I just need a break! I have no time for myself... I just want some time..."

A friend of mine shared. 

"The next person that tells me to make time, I think I'm going to *insert some swearing* lose it! Don't they think I know that... How do I make time when the baby is attached to my hip!?... I'm so sick of people telling me it's as simple as *insert more swearing* self-care!"

I listened......

Happy 2019 - What is your intention for the year?

Uncategorized Jan 02, 2019

Happy New Year. Happy 2019.

Brand new year, brand new possibilities.

We all love new beginnings - and it is possible, to see every day as a brand new day, to start where we are.

There is a spectrum of emotions that run through the holiday season - some are loved up and thriving, and others are struggling and feeling a disconnection. Wherever you are, know that you are not alone.

That this is...

I wish I was more kind - What do you wish?

Uncategorized Dec 08, 2018

I'm 22 years old. I felt empty. I hated being in my own skin - in fact, I was certain there was something wrong with me. I looked around at everyone else around me and the following thoughts go through my head:

- Why don't I have it all figured out?

- Why am I so broken?

- I feel like a fraud

- No-one can love me for me

As I approach 40, I look back and I want to hug the 22 year old version of...

Do you know "How to Love" your child?

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2018

What does it take to love someone? Have you ever sat down and thought about it? Like really think, do I know "How to Love?".

We assume that as a human being we should all know "How to Love" - however, no-one teaches us "How to Love." 

In Thich Nhat Hanh's book "How to Love" he writes;

"Before having a child, it would be wonderful if people would take a year to look deeply into...
