I went to an amazing training programme through work a little while ago and have found it truly transformational to how I think, see and interact with the world. I feel like this training has changed me but I haven't been able to vocalise the change very well (it's all a bit muddled in my… Continue reading What’s going on?
I'm a do-er, or I have been for much of my life. Faced with an obstacle or set in front of a problem, I would do, solve, work, push, accomplish. And when I wasn't able to do, solve, work, push, accomplish my way out of something (more often than not the emotions I was feeling)… Continue reading Being
To all the people pleasers, all those who live by 'shoulds', all those who suffer from comparison-itis, I want to share with you a technique I've been using which has given me freedom in how I experience my daily life. It's one that I often forget, but one that has helped me on a couple… Continue reading Permission
This is my first free weekend in quite some time, and the first day that I have not many plans besides meeting a good friend for coffee. I feel jittery inside, like I've been running at a speed for quite some time and am not sure how to slow down and find a slower pace… Continue reading Pace
I shared the happy news with many people yesterday that I'm pregnant and am expecting the arrival of a little boy in late December.

I was having a conversation with my husband last night and it got a tad heated. Poor my mum who was sitting in the middle of us whilst it was going on, although to be fair she asked the question that provoked the 'debate'. It was about whether we would raise a child with a… Continue reading A matter of the heart
Happy Saturday, dear friend! I was asking myself what I wanted to write to you about this morning and I suddenly thought that I often write about thoughts I'm having and changes I want to make, but I rarely report back on how my thoughts have led to shifts in my life. So today I… Continue reading It’s that simple – part 2
I woke up this morning dog-tired and feeling overwhelmed by the work in front of me for the day. To be honest, I had woken with a bit of a victim mindset - so much work to do, so little time to do it, so much expectation upon myself - and I felt like I… Continue reading It’s that simple
This is my third post in less than a week...I just feel like I have so much to share with you, dear friend. I suppose it could be that important things have taken place recently or that I've started to find my voice and I'm overflowing with thoughts, dreams, ideas and opinions. It feels so… Continue reading Finding my voice
