For this moment

Focus brings clarity to the way forward; when the path is unclear and the direction unknown; slow your breathing, give yourself permission to pause, reset and refocus; the way is now clear, focus, keep moving forward.


Old or new?

Old or New

Today has been disconnected, a time of reboot.
There is not much but movies and books to entertain.
The neighbours are noisy.
There is a plane overhead, haven’t heard many lately.
Unusual time, unusual pause in human history.

When babies still cry but parents are not allowed to hand them into someone else’s care.
Where elderly are isolated and trapped and ok on their own but endangered in care.
There is still noise but it’s honest, the streets are quieter, the air cleaner and time seems to be standing still, the earth has taken a breath and is waiting to see what humans will do. 

This is a the moment we choose; we go back to old habits and accept what came before or we strike a balance with nature, we take this time to synchronise with earths rhythm once again. 

We listen to the voice of our ancestors and for once we learn, we grow, we sacrifice the self for the many, we see the world from beyond our own skin, we feel the earth breathing through our lungs and we feel the pulse beat, the spirit rise and the joy burst and bubble through our veins, popping and crackling like pop rocks, tingling from the crown of our heads to the tips of our fingers, then seeping through the soles of our feet, returning to renew the earth.

This is bliss, this is the world at one. There are those drawn towards the change and those holding tight to what’s now lost.

When I feel this pulse through me, I am so grateful to be alive, to be trying to capture in words how it feels to be in a changing world, open to possibilities and challenged to grow. 

It feels like the things I’ve allowed to hold me back, to keep me drowning in the broken records of the past are washed away in the clarity of now, in the focus of my mind, in the peace of my soul. 

I am me, the best me today walking toward the next moment of joy and brilliance and courage. Changing the world is easy, our minds forget to allow us the freedom to make the changes. 

Trust, hope, joy; now that the world is paused, this is the time to make the choice.

This moment, this day, this decision, for today and beyond, to choose to be the best now.

One step

One step

One step, it has to start somewhere, so the first step is the one step that matters

Live your true and authentic life, be your true and authentic self

Some moments this is clear and easy, others are challenging

Every challenge is building your strength and resilience

Every step is bringing you closer, look within. activate your strength

Take one step, then take the next.

Scared Rabbit and the Lighthouse

How do I overcome my inner scared rabbit and shine like a lighthouse?

Shining light when darkness is all around, being a beacon of hope in the face of troubled times, being a guide back into the light

When I can do this, why do I hesitate?

When I’m in my power, I can see beyond the ties of now.

When I’m a scared rabbit, all I can see is the inside of my eyeballs and the scenarios my ego is constructing,

False evidence appearing real, oh yeah old friend, F.E.A.R.

How do I be brave, and break that cycle?

One step, then another, then another.

Soon, I’ve taken more steps than I’d realise and my stride is lengthening, my momentum is forward and my goal is clear. 

The weight of fear I’ve been carrying slides away.

The voices in my head are responding to my resolution of purpose,

And every day my inner cheer squad is chanting;

I’m brave, I’ve got this, I am of service to those around me, I am love, I am joy,

I am respect.

As these radiate from within, my intent and purpose crack through the layers of resistance and my inner lighthouse is now shining for me.

Be kind to yourself


Everyday we choose how we accept information and opinions into our lives, often overlooking our inner voice and our core truths. And sometimes our inner voice and our core truths are at odds with our best selves. When change is such a constant in our lives, why is it that the voice that persists is often the least helpful one?

Be kind to yourself, tune into your inner voice, acknowledge and set aside the unhelpful tracks from your childhood, look at yourself now, in truth and with kindness. Find the thing about yourself that you are most thankful for. You can build yourself from here, one step at a time.

Be steadfast, be kind, be brave, be your best self.



Today is important,

Yesterday drives me forward but cannot hold me back,

Tomorrow is unwritten.

Today I honour all my yesterdays, all my actions, my values and my fears.

I honour those I knew then, those who have moved on,

Especially those who have passed.

Today is important because I am choosing to share me with you and take a leap into the unknown with you,

So welcome, I trust the love that flows through the words I share offer comfort, inspiration and act as a lighthouse to guide you to your safe harbour, and together we will light up our lives.
