Most people said I was crazy

If anyone is wanting a challenge with breath-taking views (quite literally! The forceful nature of the wind when it hits your face in just the wrong angle in some parts will literally take your breath away!) I fully recommend the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. After coming out of emergency abdominal surgery to remove my gallbladder just 2 months earlier and having not really gotten back into physical activity until 2-3 weeks prior to our trip due

I’m not changing for anyone!

Get out of here with your opinion. It’s unwelcome and was never asked for. Too many times, people share with you how they think you should do something. How you should look a certain way, act a certain way or even think a certain way. Do you know why I’m not acting the way you want me to? It’s because that’s not who I am. I think you are great the way you are. You

People remember how you make them feel

Building up the courage, I did it. I made the call. I was nervous. I was terrified. But I did it. It was the best thing I ever did. Did I feel it at the time? Not so much. In fact, the reaction I got from the other end still shocks me to this day. Where did their reaction come from? Why did they say what they did? Were they right to say that? What

Luck has nothing to do with it!

“OH you are SO lucky!” *insert eye roll* oh, piss off! Quit it with this “luck” business. It ain’t luck, sweetheart. It’s called hard work. How’d I get to where I am? I worked for it. How do I have the things I have? I, and my partner, worked hard and continue to work hard for what we have. It doesn’t come easy. It doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t get easier. When you’ve worked

The moment I locked eyes on him, I knew. I knew I would do everything in my power to give him the best of me and nothing was going to stop me. When Tatum made me a Mumma something in me clicked, a love I could never have described before experiencing it. He was everything and all the pain and exhaustion from the past few days faded as I marvelled at our son and just

What if we talked to strangers?

You know when you meet someone who has absolutely no filter but you’re so glad you met them because they enlightened to a new way forward? I met a person like that this week. She was amazing. No filter. Not afraid to start a conversation. Not afraid to tell me everything she thought I needed to know. In that 5 minutes we spent together, she helped me and prevented what could have been an awful

What you’re really telling me

It’s amazing what someone can tell you without even uttering a word. As part of my studies for my Diploma of Life Coaching, I’m reading a book titled, “the Definitive book of body language” by Allan & Barbara Pease. Every single page of this book is filled with fascinating information that completely opens the mind to how we display our thoughts and feelings without speaking a single word. The subtle acts that we’re aware of,

We are ALL good enough!

ENOUGH! PLEASE! A while back, I wrote about being sick of not feeling good enough. I could go into lengths about the reasons why I never feel good enough. Just look up child psychology and understanding attachment trauma to give you some ideas. But, what I’m really sick of is the fact that, whilst a lot of these thoughts of not feeling ‘good enough’ seem to be a strongly female problem, the fact is men

A new journey begins…

Where do I even begin this week!? Seriously, I’m sitting here absolutely ecstatic and excited for what I think/hope the future will hold and at the same time, I’m on the verge of tears. I just want to cry. But not in a bad way. I’m super happy right now. This week, I said some, ‘not-goodbyes’ but some, ‘see you later (hasta luego)’ to some amazing colleagues. I’ll see them around and will still be

                     Photo by Hanny Naibaho on Unsplash Not sure what I’ve done right lately, but it feels like my boogie men are starting to disappear. I used to be so afraid of so many people… Somehow they look less scary, from this new perspective. I saw something online the other day that read: “People aren’t ignoring you they’re busy living their lives and the best way for you to get over
