If you know me, you’ve heard it before - I LOVE forests. I love trees. I love being anywhere where I am surrounded and swallowed up by nature. I love it when all I can see is nature’s beautiful creations. And… wait for it…. I believe that the forest is magic. Yep, you heard it… Continue reading The magical powers of the forest
So despite being an introvert, I've always been a social butterfly. Always keen to connect with others. But connect in a deep and meaningful way. Not just a 'hows your day, hows the weather' kind of way. I can do small talk but if you hang out with me you might notice my eyes glaze… Continue reading Meaningful connection: Four key areas you can explore today

I am a type A personality, a perfectionist, with an unhealthy habit of making… Continue reading Why you should add ‘nothing’ into your schedule
When I filled out the application two and half years ago it was my dream job. And, it was in my home town, (meaning it was a needle in a haystack). An opportunity that was unlikely to present itself again in the near future. At the time I applied for the job I wasn’t looking for… Continue reading Why i gave up my dream job
I used to look at other people’s selfies with disdain, thinking it was pretty self-involved. I don’t think I’ve ever posted a selfie. But the challenge for myself this week is to post one. And here’s why. My children need to see my face. They need to see that I’m comfortable enough with myself to… Continue reading Why you should take more selfies
