True Good Happiness

One of the things I used to do to bring me some level of sanity during the most challenging days of my past would be to go for a drive with the tunes cranked. Truth is, it’s still one of my favourite things to do, to unwind. Back then, it was my escape. I could clear...

Mind Gremlins

Oh, how they often take over. We set up to learn how to do something or try to remember something we used to do from long ago. But we just can’t remember. Or we doubt what we are creating. As a writer, I experience this daily. Yes. Daily.The days...

New Year True You

I’m tickled to see how many people are sharing the misconceptions about ushering out the old and bringing in the new with resolutions. I’m equally thrilled with how many people are like ‘whatever, it’s just another day’. I’m falling somewhere on the spectrum of all of...

I was reflecting this morning on the focus I have on my inner world and the outer world. I’ve been highly aware of who is saying and sharing what. I’ve been highly aware of my responses to what is being said and shared. I’m also aware that my focus, attitude and...

Are you reserving enough time for yourself?

I’ve learned some big lessons in the last week and a bit about how much time I am reserving in my life for me. As a Business Owner, Wife/Partner/Spirit Mate, Goddess of the Home, and cat mom, there’s a lot going on. Always. The lists in fact, are never...

Keeping Up Appearances

The other day a friend/peer/client/professional/service provider in my life, had expressed how they have these moments of wanting to do their professional development and personal shares, but there is so much overlap in our worlds that they don’t want to appear...

Boundaries

From time to time, I come across someone who reminds me of when I was learning to have boundaries. They come across as edgy, intense, and angry. What I see is an exertion of power. Usually, due to not having boundaries in the past. Sometimes, due to having lived...
