WORDS TO LIVE BY

Shine On…

We are living in abnormal times.Times of great change.Times of great loss.Times of chaos, unrest and struggle.I think we will look back on this year as a turning point for humanity.And we are caught right up amongst it, living, breathing, feeling every thing.Watching the story unfold, waiting with anxious hearts, for the next chapter.Trying to …

You may not even know how changed you already are.You’re metamorphosing.We all are. You’ve come from a place of safety, of convenience, of privilege…You didn’t even know that, until now.

Somebody reads your ‘unofficial’ article – about the whole world being a lie and everything we know being not what we thought it was at all actually – and that person, who may already be suffering with anxiety, is tipped over the edge.

Dear Women, Maybe You Don’t Know How Amazing You Really Are…

Dear Women…. Maybe you don’t know, just how amazing you are. Maybe you don’t see how you keep everyone going, even when you’re struggling yourself. Maybe you don’t realise how much cheer you bring others, regardless of your own level of happiness. Maybe you don’t see the smiles you spread, or the joy you bring. …

Our Kids Will Remember This …So let’s make sure we are doing things right.

This pandemic is something like most of us have never faced in our lifetimes. As a generation, (I am mid 40s), we have had it pretty good. We have studied periods of oppression, wars, pandemics and maybe we rolled our eyes every now and again at one too many, ‘You kids don’t know you’re born’ …
