“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
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
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,
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
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

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
Trouble With Going To Work
Everything is a trade off…. even when it’s an obvious choice. I quit that shit job, so life is good. Every day is just a little lighter and I am excited to wake up. YES… EXCITED. But still there is a trade off… in exchange for freedom from a job that was killing me, I took on work that pays me in peanuts, so, I had to take on job #2. Instead of a 9-5,
For the past week, posts have popped up everywhere around Mental Health. Here in New Zealand, it’s mental health awareness week. This is supported largely by the Mental Health Foundation here in New Zealand.

Photo from the Wilde Family album “What a treacherous thing, to believe that a person is more than a person” -John Green, Paper Towns I had reserved part of my brain for believing in fairy tales… I believed that marriage was suddenly going to take this girl with a lifetime of self esteem issues and make her confident and effortlessly happy. Truth is – a ring didn’t make me a better person Truth is –
