A Year in Review

Has this past year just flown by? Or is it just me?! Wow what a year it has been. A kaleidoscope of emotions. Monumental growth off the back of significant life changes, that just kept changing. Sometimes I reflect and I feel a wave of emotions, for where I was, where I am and whereContinue reading “A Year in Review”

Boys Will Be Boys- Just an excuse for poor behaviour

The attached video from Brisbane Boys College Captain Mason Black, whilst resoundingly courageous and insightful, it also a terribly sad indictment on our society. It’s truly shameful that in 2021 objectifying women, harassing women, vilifying women and sexually assaulting women is so ingrained in behaviour and society that here in Australia the Police Commissioner isContinue reading “Boys Will Be Boys- Just an excuse for poor behaviour”

The Hard Truth We Need To Accept If We Truly Want to Change

I found this piece written by a fellow writer and I think it’s incredibly well written and will resonate in some way with most readers. It’s so true, that until we truly dig deep and start the healing process-we will keep being thrown the same painful lessons. Most of us are masters of distraction, avoidance,Continue reading “The Hard Truth We Need To Accept If We Truly Want to Change”

Emotional Agility Vs Toxic Positivity

Toxic Positivity is forced, false positivity. It may sound innocuous on the surface, but when we share something difficult with someone and they insist that you turn it into a positive, what they are really saying is “my comfort is more important than your reality”- Dr Susan David. I have touched on toxic positivity andContinue reading “Emotional Agility Vs Toxic Positivity”

The dilemma of making hard choices, letting go, embracing chaos and following our souls

Sometimes, we get lost, confused and lonely in the walls that we have built-walls we often do not realise we have even built, trying to protect our hearts and our little, fragile souls. We get too lost and invested, and sometimes the way out is practically invisible and nowhere to be seen. Also, we frequentlyContinue reading “The dilemma of making hard choices, letting go, embracing chaos and following our souls”

How do you define courage?

What good are my wings, if I lack the courage to fly? The dictionary definition of courage is the ability to do something that frightens one-bravery. And strength in the face of pain and grief. I’ve never thought of myself as particularly courageous and some people I deemed as courageous- have shown themselves as notContinue reading “How do you define courage?”

How we try to solve childhood wounds through romantic relationships

I was with my husband for almost 30 years and since ending our marriage, I have been through a huge period of growth, learning, reflection and self realisation. Added to that my training, study and a specialisation in relationships, human behaviour and the games that people play- I have put together a post that IContinue reading “How we try to solve childhood wounds through romantic relationships”

Our Internal Seasons

Do you ever ponder the ebb and flow of life? We transition with the planets cycles. We follow rhythms, that ebb and flow, the phases of the moon, the changing of the seasons. Rhythms pulsate through our lives at many different levels. Our energies and bodies pulsate with our own unique circadian rhythms, as natureContinue reading “Our Internal Seasons”

I Am Enough

A piece I wrote last year for Elephant Journal. In a judgemental and conditioned society-we need to always remember we are enough. The only person that keeps you chained to a fence of self-doubt is yourself. Joyously happy or despairingly sad—I am enough Bouncing with energy or listlessly fatigued—I am enough Ramblingly talkative or unusuallyContinue reading “I Am Enough”
