If youre a newsletter subscriber and didnt get an email in a while thats cause I didnt send any I didnt mean to just disappear like that but I needed to tend to my mental and physical well-being while navigating a pandemic pregnancy and family challenges. So I focused the energy I had left with my 1:1 coaching clients which has been so energizing As I wind things down towards my maternity pause I just wanted to remind you that if things look completely different from what you had imagined…

I buy myself fresh flowers every week. Its a little self-love ritual that goes a long way in reminding me that Ive got my own back no matter what. Self-love is something Ive had to learn for myself over time and that didnt come naturally to me. Were often taught that loving yourself is being self-absorbed and indulgent. Its anything but. It is so freeing to truly and thoroughly enjoy your own company and know how to take care of you. True belonging starts within

It is not selfish nor indulgent to honour your hearts calling and creative impulses ... but that doesnt mean your dreams come with an expiration date either. So dream big dreams take small manageable steps to bring them to life and remember that the road is uniquely yours. Scenic detours rain checks and hiccups are inevitable part of the journey. Sending so much love to all the dreamers and creative change makers who have to put their dreams and visions on hold while life gets in the way… Dreams And Visions, Change Maker, So Much Love, Inevitable, Selfish, Your Heart, Dream Big, The Dreamers, Dreaming Of You

Entering the third trimester. This is my third pregnancy. The first one feels like a lifetime ago the second one abruptly stopped in its tracks took me a while to digest and this one is unfolding against a backdrop of a global pandemic.  Its a strange thing hosting a little soul for a while having them grow stretch and rearrange your insides. I feel like I have been a different person each time. Each time with a few more scars the ones you see and the ones you dont. But each time with a…

Standing in solidarity with women in Turkey in South Africa and all over the world. Women empowerment doesnt mean much when too many of us are unsafe threatened and not free to be ourselves.  To understand what this #challengeaccepted movement is about I invite you to read @drpragyaagarwal s post (that I found via @suzydarke - thank you).   The cause and message seem to have been somewhat diluted along the way. Let this be a reminder not to jump on an Instagram trend as beautiful and noble… Along The Way, All Over The World, Women Empowerment, South Africa, Invite, Lens, Turkey, Creative, Photography

We live in a world obsessed with fixing problems productivity and performance. A world that has an extremely narrow view of what normal desirable and successful mean.  What place does that leave for gentler creative intuitive souls and empaths? Or for anyone that doesnt fit the mould?  For the longest time I felt like I didnt belong anywhere and that something was inherently wrong with me. Turns out there is something inherently wrong with a system that doesnt embrace different ways of being…

Transformation vs Change  Ive been thinking a lot about whats been happening in the world lately. I think its safe to say that as humans we have found ourselves in the midst of tremendous dis-ease. We long for things we once took for granted. Health anxiety is at an all time high. Many are being awaken to the blatant injustice and how in the face of the same invisible enemy we are not equal in terms of the privilege some of us have.  Our planet has been screaming for our attention and is now…

Tending to his anxieties frustrations and fears.  Hiding out in a fort with no schedule agenda or any sense of what time it is. Chatting playing day dreaming forgetting about schoolwork for a day.  Feeling the other tiny one kicking softly within my womb reminding me that for the time being there is no other place for me to be.  Its been hard putting my drive and vision on hold. Its felt tense painful and deeply frustrating. But somehow today I breathed a little deeper I embraced the moment…

Yesterday I invited my newsletter subscribers to follow my version of cyclic living to find more creative flow in a series of 4 emails following the moon cycle   When days seem to morph into one another it can be hard to find a creative rhythm. I find following the moons natural cycle is a beautiful way to find an anchor in ourselves and the world around us. I also love the visual reminder in the sky at night.  Weve been in the new moon phase these last few days which is a time of great…
