I have no blog post written for today. It's the first time since I began this blog that I woke up on a Sunday and it's not even started. Whoops! I like to file my Whoops(es?) into three folders. 'Shit that's out of your control.' 'Shit that's in your control.' 'A bit of both.' I'm… Continue reading Whoops!
I make a lot of connections in the gym. I don't know if it's because my brain and body are well connected then or if it's all the feel good stuff moving about or what...but a lot of ideas and inspirations happen there. This is one I made the other day that inspired this post.… Continue reading Modify For the Win
One of my old stories is that I am flighty. I don't stick to things. I change my mind too much. I'm a quiter. I don't follow through. As a kid I wanted to do it all. I wanted to try everything. It meant that loads of things fell by the wayside. It also meant… Continue reading Permission to Evolve
We have been led to believe that there is not enough to go around. That there is only so much wealth, talent, good looks, health, happiness, bravery and luck. That if someone else gets or achieves or receives then that means less for us. It can lead to a really yucky environment when a culture… Continue reading The Scarcity Lie
I love summer (obvs). The visits, the travels, the time with friends and family, the adventures, the food and drinks. But holy hell can it wreak havoc with my sense of wellbeing. Does that sound weird? These are memory making times so why the niggle of anxiety and the feeling of unease? It's because I… Continue reading Holding Intentions (Summer Edition)
*Just a wee warning that I will be speaking about baby loss in this post and that may be difficult for many. I understand if this is not something you are able to read about just now. * Brene Brown talks a lot about how we 'dress rehearse tragedy'. How we practice tragedy in our… Continue reading Dress Rehearsing Tragedy
You would think holidaying would be just the thing for someone who can wrestle with anxiety at times. You'd think that it would be easy to just chill and relax. Not so my friends. Or at least, not so for me. My anxiety likes to visit when we are in times of uncertainty. When there… Continue reading When Anxiety Goes On Holiday
So, I need to make an adjustment. I wrote a blog post all about self care a wee while ago. You can read it here if you haven't seen it yet. It may give you some context. Self Care is Life I wrote about the need for self care as a way to set the… Continue reading Getting it Wrong
I'm 40. I'm 40! Holy hell when did that happen? This isn't even a birthday realisation. I'll be 41 in September. It just grabs my attention every so often. I always imagined I'd have my shit together and my life set by now. And I'm totally fine with aging, so far. I just....when did this… Continue reading What Next?
So...I write some form of the word 'shit' 14 times in this post. And it felt good. Not going to lie. This whole journey has been an exercise in owning my shit. The good, the bad and the weird. It aint easy but it's the only way to do the work I want to do.… Continue reading Owning Your Shit
