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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

When It’s Time to Let Go

                     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 ...
