Semantics and Somatics

“Every day is a chance to get better” I saw these words pinned up on a notice board. Although I understand the intention behind the message, I have to say I tend to disagree, here’s why. Reading the words quietly to myself I allowed them to filter through my mind and down into my body, […]

Consistency – A New Take

I have no desire to justify any absence from blogging this past month, although I do want to talk about it. The truth is the words just haven’t materialised.

Connection is the Antidote to Addiction

  Earlier this week I posted on facebook, nothing unusual about that except this post at the last count had 477 likes and 338 comments. A couple of days later and I continue to feel overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, connection and comments shared. I’ve never been one to measure by numbers, as Mother […]

Happy Thanksgiving and Creating Healthy Practices

To all my friends across the pond, Happy Thanksgiving Day. Having an attitude of gratitude and giving thanks has been one of my regular practices for many years. My friend Sam Russell came up with the concept Thank You Thursday to boost her social media interaction and the idea kind of stuck and became a […]
