Emotions. Feelings. Sentiment. Pain. Anger. Joy. Love. Remorse. Excitement. Emotions are a bitch, but they are an important part of our journey, but the reality is knowing that doesn’t make it any easier to process them. It simply gives us an awareness of them, and the fact they are a necessary evil. This past fortnight… Continue reading Emotions – pain or purpose?
For me, being seen is one of the scariest things in the world. But is it being seen that scares me, or being judged? Over the last few weeks I have pushed myself into the realm of publicity quite a bit. With an extremely important event, and even the mere act of conversations about what… Continue reading The Fear of Being Seen
For many years I believed Balance was an art. I believed that balance was some end point, when I had my life together that I was totally at ease, calm, and collected. Where everything would come together, and I could kick my feet up and relax... Oh, how wrong I was. What I am sure… Continue reading The Art of Perfecting Balance

The real kicker? Expectations are not simple. The weave their way into all aspects of our lives. We are expected… Continue reading Expectations
Sometimes, the way we release pressure build up within the body is through a physical representation of how we are feeling. The deep sigh, the short breath out, the art of active breathing. Our body often has our back, providing us with a way to release the physical tension that we accumulate throughout the day/week/month.… Continue reading Finding Time For Laughter
What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "Creative". When I was younger the word use to fill me with dread. Dread that I would be expected to craft some hugely creative, amazing innovative thing. Suddenly a word, seemed like to much hard work... excuses seems to flow much easier.… Continue reading Making Creative Spaces
