I woke up last night in fear of death. That death would take this man from me. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t get peace. A voice said to me, “ You will not lose him, for he is not lost. He is going home.” and so I cried. I understood what it meant but when [...]

F*#K. We Are Parenting Wrong.
We are parenting our children out of fear of failure. We don't want to be the parents that f*#k up. The ones who have children who are bullys, addicts, no-hopers, depressive and anxious. We want our children to be our most glorious representation of who we are. We want to show the world we have an [...]
Motherhood and Me
I believe Motherhood is one of the most amazing times in our lives. Last night watching my sons pile on top of my husband in hysterical laughter, getting tickled and be in the moment was one of my life's great joys. Sitting on the sidelines and watching joy in action made me joyful because it [...]
How To Be More You
Watching my toddlers interact with the world is an awe inspiring activity because before they are told how to behave, how to act, where to be quiet, where to tone it down, they are themselves. But between our soft scoldings and their wide-eyed observations they come to the realisation that the real them won't cut it [...]
The Spiritual Practice of Motherhood
Motherhood has challenged me, elated me, frustrated me, lifted me up and made me truly believe that I have a true purpose in life. My three little boys are my sunshine. They are beautiful little people with massive hearts, unique thoughts and loving natures. They are perfect just the way they are and so am [...]
Mastering Your Mean Girl
How you ever read a book and been so inspired, so excited that you just have to tell everyone about it? That the principles written in the book resonate so deeply that you take action? I have been tinkering around with a couple of blog posts in the last few days because I have read [...]
Showing Up For Yourself
How many times have you thought to yourself – I’ll do this later? I’ll go tomorrow? I just have no energy for it today? The irony being that these are the things that are giving you energy, clarifying your focus and nourishing your soul. Too much cleaning to do? I'll skip the gym. Fridge bursting with fresh produce but cant be bothered cooking so you get take-out. Don't have time to meditate but just spent good half an hour trawling social media? Why are the very things we love last on our to do list?
I am always asking myself, “Am I doing enough?” “ "What have I forgotten?” “What am I supposed to be doing?” Because free time in this society is such a rarity. It feel illicit. I have every right to lie down on the couch in the middle of the day if that’s what I feel [...]
Minimalism – Why Would You Want Less Stuff???
Living with less....with kids. A misnomer? An ironic suggestion? An impossibility? We live in an era of abundance. Just for a second stop and appreciate that. Not only are our key needs met for shelter, sustenance and security but we have surplus. We have coffee machines that give cafe quality flat whites at home. We [...]
I've been wanting to write. Write a recap of 2014. Write about our beautiful holidays. Write about the new meditation courses and techniques I've been completing. Write about the lessons I've learned and the ones I feel are set out for me. But it's school holidays. I've been busy. I have home opens to get [...]
