Spring has sprung!

April showers mixed with gentle sunshine lifts the soul and excites the senses. I do tend to get giddy in Spring, with all colours and change. This is always a good reminder to look for the new. When I get stuck, a gentle reminder that change is Nature’s constant, shows itself. A signpost for me […]

The Misconception of being Separate

I chose the quote for this journal entry as I keep regularly hearing the phrase ‘ I just don’t know what to think…’ In time of political distraction and manipulated jargon where do you put your attention, who or what is social truth? How you navigate that storm can be exhausting. If you feel powerless […]

At what cost? The Relevance of Self investment.

I am from a working class Cornish family. I don’t let that define me as I was brought up by parents who nurtured my self belief and what lacked financially in the family was balanced with an abundance of ‘you can do anything you want to do’. I am very fortunate to have that fearless […]

Break with tradition this holiday….

The winter holiday season is nearly upon us and I have been thinking about how to look after yourself, your loved ones and someone you may not know yet. Whatever your plans are over the next few weeks, there maybe the temptation to have a real party hard attitude in order to balance against work […]

First step to understanding change

Inspired to write this after watching an episode of ‘Ways to Change the World’. I watched a person blinkered with intention and drive to become successful in his vocation. In his younger years, he didn’t see or feel the impact his community was experiencing through socio-political upheaval. Years later when he came back home to […]

Autumn Joy!

Autumn is upon is and the seasonal changes are something to put to you attention on. After a glorious summer making the most of the longer days, drawing in alongside the shorter evenings, in my experience is a good thing. Gentle beach walks, unctuous and nourishing  foods, warmth and relaxation. Take the opportunity when you […]

Round and round in circles…

I was set on writing something else for the August entry and then I saw the quote above. Before meditation I found myself repeating the same mistakes over and over. No matter how many times I told myself it will different next time – I never took the space and breath to gather more information. […]

This Summer’s Must Haves….

Flip flops, a woolly hat and head torch. My summer’s must haves….the second two are all year round must haves as nighttime gets quite nippy where I live, no matter what time of year and a head torch is always handy. Your eyes are exposed to ‘buy this’ and ‘buy that’ and when you bought […]
