May you find something of value in what I share.
A variation on the golden rule
MANY OF US HAVE HEARD what is sometimes called the golden rule: Treat others as you would have others treat you. But what if we were to consider the phrase with this slight adjustment: TREAT YOURSELF AS YOU WOULD TREAT OTHERS. So often we’re harder on ourselves than...
Cut yourself some slack
Someone recently commented to me that they found me to be very self-aware and kind to myself. It’s interesting to hear how someone else views us, isn’t it? It sparked me to contemplate a little. I suppose I endeavour to… ~ CUT MYSELF SOME SLACK AND GO EASY ON MYSELF....
Spiritual guidance and where it comes from
ON SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE AND WHERE IT COMES FROM. I’m not in the business of telling anyone that they have spirit guides, totem animals or angels working with them - nor am I in the business of telling anyone that they DON’T have any of the above. WHAT I AM ABOUT IS...
You complete the energy of the space
YOU ARE VALUABLE to those around you and beyond. Keep that in your focus – ahead of any self-critical thoughts and ideas of ‘not enough’ or ‘I keep messing up’ or [insert self-critical thought here]. If played too frequently such thoughts erode your self-confidence....
Worrying less, trusting more
THE LESS I WORRY ABOUT THINGS THE BETTER I FEEL, PHYSICALLY. At least that’s what I’m discovering. I know it’s not a revolutionary idea – scientific studies have shown that stress and worry have an impact on our physical body, even in ways we would never think they...
The value of small interactions
BEEN FEELING LIKE YOU’RE NOT DOING A ‘GOOD ENOUGH’ JOB? Focusing on the mistakes you’ve made? Struggling to see any positive impact you’re making? Feeling like you’re not noticed or valued? If so, I invite you to remember: ~ the grocery clerk who smiled at you because...
Life as an experiment not a performance
WHAT IF WE TREATED LIFE MORE LIKE AN EXPERIMENT THAN A PERFORMANCE? How would that change our approach to our day-to-day experiences? A performance or presentation often comes with it a sense of appearing polished, well-practiced, being an expert, and perhaps a desire...
A little about anger
I READ THIS LOVELY ARTICLE ABOUT ANGER in the magazine Lion’s Roar, Nov 2022 issue - these were the pieces stuck out for me that I felt called to share: ‘Anger is something most of us try to avoid. Yet … we can observe the source of our anger – and the source of all...
Shifting envy to inspiration
WHEN WE FIND SOMETHING WE ENVY ABOUT ANOTHER PERSON - perhaps we’re comparing ourselves to them and saying to ourselves how much we wish we could be more like them, maybe even feeling down on ourselves for not being ‘as good at [x]’ as we find them to be in some way -...
You don’t need to be fixed
BEING VULNERABLE ABOUT BEING ANNOYED. There was a day recently that I was annoyed. There was no reason ‘on paper’ to be annoyed at this thing. [Interesting side-note I've since learned in conversation with a friend since then - that the term ‘on paper’ can just be a...
Following what sparks your interest
FOLLOW YOUR EXCITEMENT. I have often written about how it’s important to explore and follow the thing that lights you up – even a little. But by following it, you might not end up there – where ‘there’ is the thing that initially sparked your interest. Indeed there...
Accept the joy without wondering where it’s been
IF AND WHEN YOU HAVE SOME ENTHUSIASM, you feel happier, more energetic, a glimmer of excitement, a shift – follow that – follow your energy. Curb the temptation to focus on why you haven't felt that way until now, for such a long time, or even why it wasn't there just...
Getting our inner-critic and inner-supporter to work together
WE MIGHT READ AND FEEL LIKE WE ABSORB VALUABLE SUPPORTIVE REMINDERS SUCH AS: ~ It’s OK to just ‘be’ ~ You’re a human ‘being’ not a human ‘doing’ ~ Be kind to yourself ~ Life is a journey, you’re allowed rest along the way. ~ [Insert favourite supportive quote here]...
Contemplating the things we struggle to trust
WE TEND TO WANT OTHERS TO BE LIKE US. Maybe we wouldn’t put it in so many words, but we do tend to seek connection with others who share similar values, interests, even abilities. Perhaps it comes from a desire to be accepted and to make connections – to feel less...
There is meaning in whatever is happening
TAKE THE PHYSICAL ENERGY WHEN IT COMES. ~ If you’re getting more done today than yesterday, that’s just how it is today. It doesn’t mean you will - or must expect to - maintain this speed, energy, and zest for the rest of your days. LEAN INTO THE NEED FOR REST WHEN...
