I don’t have enough memories of you. A childhood rife with play and imagination wasn’t enough to keep you here. I wish I’d used that mind to conjure up a father who stayed. Who would you be at night when I was in sweats from nightmares?Or maybe I wouldn’t get nightmares anymore, if you were around. Daddy to the rescue. All… Continue reading Dad’s 20th Anniversary
This weekend has been lovely. I’ve felt a sense of relief and release. Friday evening I did a “letting go” yoga flow that made me feel amazing and helped shift the pent up energy and inner conflict I’ve felt throughout the rest of the week. I’m so grateful for that yoga session and time I… Continue reading Gratitude post!
You're not a real writer if your writing isn't literary. If you don't stay up all night bent over a keyboard or notebook, hand aching. If you dwell in the fantastical and impossible, instead of augmenting the real and important. My entire life I've been a writer and yet I've spent my entire life doubting… Continue reading Am I a good writer?
How healthy am I? I know for sure I’m healthier than I used to be. I eat better. I sleep better. I walk more. I have deeper more meaningful conversations. I create during my weeks. I stretch. I drink loads of water. I care for my hair and protect it. I notice my thoughts. I’m… Continue reading How healthy am I? (Journal entry)

With each new year, I feel a renewed sense of confidence. A year older, a year bolder they say. And I do feel more confident… Continue reading Chapter 27 – birthday rumination
I haven’t felt creative lately. I mean I’ve been writing for my uni work, sure, and it is flowing more or less when I sit with it but I don’t feel very engaged. Excited? Sure? I don’t feel the urge to write my novels. I don’t feel excited for uni to finish so I can… Continue reading Journal entry: feeling creatively meh
This year I’ve challenged myself in many ways. My focus for 2022 was to enjoy myself and trust myself again, but I did end up tagging on a little extra in that I wanted to challenge myself quarterly (at least). And I’ve done that well so far; in fact I’ve challenged myself quite a lot… Continue reading Defining a challenge = defining success
I choose to see myself as I am and could be, not through my fears and insecurities. I choose to see the best in others, and reserve judgement for I can’t know what hides behind closed doors. I choose to see the playfulness and lightness of life, even when the day feels long and tiring.… Continue reading I choose to see it all
Stop for a moment. You’ve arrived at this post for a reason. I’m here to tell you a secret: You do not exist to produce and create. Your presence in this life, this world, is not to please some grand plan or creator. It is not to produce and be of service to others. You… Continue reading Breath of fresh air – a mindset for Spring
