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 ...

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.

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 Quit My Job to Live My Life

I had a job. It was an ok job, As far as jobs go. I made decent money. It was near my house. No one hit me, yelled at me or spat at me. What more could I ask for?! I could ask for just one more thing. A life which I didn’t dread 90% of. I could ask for anything but this place, This job, this lifestyle, Because it was killing me. You’ll think I mean figuratively, But I mean that ...
