  • The 3 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Dreams (and how you can get unstuck!)

    This week I saw another group of year 12 students graduate. As I sat at the back of the auditorium my mind was cast back in time to my own graduation. It was 1998 and I was rocking a baby blue medieval formal dress. (You know, cause my fav subject at school was Ancient History and I wanted to totally tap into that princess vibe, despite the fact I had braces on my teeth. I digress). I’d already been accepted to study High School teaching at uni and I was super excited about making a difference in young people’s lives.

    I knew what I wanted to do. In fact I felt called to do it.

    Now here I am in another season in my life with a new calling to help women live out their raddest (yes I’m a child of the 80’s), lives.


  • Why I saw a counsellor (and I’m not going crazy…)

    So if you’ve been around my digs for a bit or you’ve been reading my newsletter you would have found that lately I have been unwell. Over the past two months I’ve caught 3 colds and 1 bout of food poisoning plus the current bug I’ve got now (not entirely sure what is wrong yet but tests have taken place).

    I’ve been feeling exhausted, nauseous, dizzy and shaky (and noooo I’m not pregnant before you ask me).

    What I do know is that it has made me start to take note. When our bodies get a little out of whack it can be a sign of the emotional. Sure, germs are out there and of course they contribute but I notice when I start ignoring my feelings in their entirety it shows up in my gut. Plus I had lost my appetite completely. I had noticed a few other signs too and then a lightbulb went off in my head.


  • Accept the Invitation (1)

    You’ve opened your Facebook messenger + what do you see? Another email from a friend inviting you out.

    You close the email.

    You want to go but you don’t.

    Your anxiety gets the better of you.

    She’s a bit of a cow like that you know (the anxiety not your friend).

    She keeps you from having a social life. She is always whispering in your ear ‘They don’t really like you,’ ‘You don’t have anything interesting to say,’ and ‘If you don’t reply eventually they’ll stop asking and emailing to ask you to go out.

    And you’re right. They do. (more…)
