6 / JULY / 2022

As I contemplate writing this, it’s a wet winter day, cold outside and I have my heater on by my feet. I am sipping on warm lemon water, and reflecting on my life this time a year ago…

If you’ve been in my world for awhile now, you will know I LOVE personal development, I am ridiculously sensitive and therefore the very sentimental type. It also helps that I am a Cancer Sun and Moon, Enneagram Two and Projector on Human Design (and if you have no idea what those mean, don’t worry, but it’s fun to learn more about our human selves).

I share this with you because my last year around the Sun has been one of deep transformation, tests and triumphs, yet I still find myself wanting to explore, expand and grow in so many new ways. It seems that has always been the case too.


My mother told me when I was little that I was always ‘too busy’, never had time to stop, slow down or even pause for a cuddle, my eyes and mind were always focused and fixated on the ‘next thing’.

Although the cuddle part comes as a surprise (I am a very affectionate person who is always up for a hug), I’ve really come to learn that this core sense of urgency and focusing on the future hasn’t really changed.

It seems no matter whether I am 8 or 28 there is something inside of me that continues to push and focus on what’s ahead, now whilst this is great, I do love the fact that it drives me and makes me ambitious, it also has been one of my biggest struggles.

I share this with you because I know I am not alone, and I also know the rate at which the world is moving right now is at a speed none of us really know how to keep up with… and it only seems to be getting faster.

You see the more we speed up and focus on the future, the more we miss out on the present, the more we are never truly happy or satisfied with the blessings that are right in front of us.

It is always ‘the next goal’, the next house, the next trip, the next job, and all the fears and anxieties around achieving those and where we should be by this time in our lives.

I’ll be honest with you, I know I am still ‘young’ in the grand scheme of things, but there are social pressures and biological clocks that are ticking that give a woman in particular even more stress.

When I was little I used to think by the time I was 28 I would be married with my 2 or 3 children, have my little white picket fence house, be a teacher and settled down in my life. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth, and as much as this does freak me out a little, I am actually really excited for what the future holds and the fact I still have all of those dreams to still look forward to.


So this is your reminder, if you aren’t where you want to be right now, maybe you aren’t even close, look around at all you have to be grateful for. Stop, take a breath in, breathe it out, simply acknowledge how far you have come, and the fact you keep showing up every single day (even when you don’t feel like it).

I know this sense of urgency I have and struggle to slow down is in fact the one thing that is holding me back. If I stopped trying to do so much, and really simplified the things in my life, I know that things can happen a lot quicker and easier… so that is my goal moving forward.

More rest, more easy, more breaks, more time in the NOW, rather than the WHEN (when this happens, when I achieve this, when I can afford ‘x’…) and embracing the person, the body, the life that I already have.

So as I celebrate my birthday this week, I step into an even deeper feeling of gratitude, not for materials that I am thankful to receive, but for every single one of you that is here… reading this, part of the community, that I may have had the privilege to work with or yet to have the privilege to work with, the fact that I have a deep sense of connection to my purpose and mission which is to help human’s heal (particular females), and it is my hope that with every step we can support and uplift one another.

Thank you for being here, thank you for being you and sending you love and light in all your endeavours 🙂 🙏

With this I will leave you with my favourite quote from Kung Fu Panda (not sure of the original proverb author) … Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the PRESENT!

Yours in Health & Happiness,
