Expect the unexpected.

Expect the unexpected.

Today’s lesson from the universe is a repeat that I’ve had handed to me many times before. Expect the unexpected. Things often don’t go as you thought they would go. Things often don’t go as you planned. I wasn’t expecting a solo 4.5 hour road trip today, but that’s...

A blessing for the dark moon.

A blessing for the dark moon.

May all the things you’re ready to release fall away softly The stuck places, the fears and hurts gently releasing their hold And may you take a deeper, fuller breath In the spaciousness they leave in their wake. May you feel unburdened And in the sudden lightness of...

Learning a sneaky secret.

Learning a sneaky secret.

I’m learning a sneaky secret. We get to have way more support than we think we do. I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately - not feeling particularly bad, but not feeling particularly good, either. And in the past I would have shrugged and carried on doing what I was...

How do you tend to overwhelm?

How do you tend to overwhelm?

How do you tend to overwhelm? Today was a day with too many things in it after a night of crappy sleep. I like my days to feel slow and spacious, for my to do list to feel gentle even when there's lots on it. And so this has been my question - how do I tend to my...

Curiosities instead of goals.

Curiosities instead of goals.

Most years I have goals. This year I have curiosities. I’m noticing there’s a space where usually there’s a list of things I want to do, experience, achieve. I still want things, but the wanting feels soft - there’s no push behind it, there’s no sense of these being...

All it takes is a decision.

All it takes is a decision.

Today’s thought: all it really takes to do the things you want to do is the decision to do them. I’ve been thinking about my long running desire to be artistically prolific, and how all it would really take is a decision I haven’t made yet. I keep waiting for that...

Celebrating for no reason.

Celebrating for no reason.

Tonight, because I was feeling a bit lost, I took myself out for dinner to celebrate. Not to celebrate anything in particular, just to celebrate generally, and bringing that energy with me helped my evening feel interesting and alive. I told the woman taking my order...

It’s okay, you’re okay.

It’s okay, you’re okay.

I’m feeling lost in a fog. Beginnings of years are often foggy times for me, and a week of this year has already passed like a blink. Something I like to do when I’m feeling out of sorts is ask myself: what do I need to hear today? Today, I need to hear that where I...

One day at a time.

One day at a time.

One day at a time. One moment. This moment. This present moment. Sit down with it, take a breath. Take another. Invite all your energy back from the places you’ve left it. Invite all your energy back from the people you’ve attached it to. Invite all your energy back...

Tending to wounds.

Tending to wounds.

One of the first things I did this year, at around 6am on New Year’s Day, was lose my footing on a slippery rock, falling and smashing the glass I had in my hand. One second intent on where I was going, the next second on the ground with a bruised leg and a bleeding...
