Let’s Celebrate

Endings are important, aren’t they? I’m learning to love them for without them there are no new beginnings. Today is one such ending.

Get Comfortable with being Uncomfortable

They say you are not the same person you were a year ago. Around twelve moons ago, my soul was lost and battered. It needed nurturing, tenderness and to be handled like a delicate flower. I gently swathed it, protecting it from any further harm. Our souls know what they need to heal and after […]

Living Inside Out

Life is Great! I say so. I’m owning that. Perceptions can be deceiving though. If you were to take a snapshot of my life right now it may not look that way. From the outside in it probably looks like I am living in total disarray, my home looks like a builders site we are […]

Sunshine, Celebration and Solstice

Tomorrow is Summer Solstice; we are entering the season of growth and maturation. My internal season has changed, rather like a flower tightly in a bud suddenly popping open I’m experiencing an internal summer. The birds are rejoicing outside and I am brimming with joy and anticipation as I await the arrival of my granddaughter. […]
