Yesterday was 22 years since Andrew and I tied the not. I thought, back then, that I knew what love looked like. What it felt like and how to be loving. Boy, was I so naive! It was all those things but so much more than I can even now put into words.
Today I want to talk about overcoming the fear of the unknown. I realise that everyone deals with 'the unknown' in different ways and the things that cause them to fear it are complex, unpredictable and diverse. My current challenges lie within two predominant areas: flying and being around large congested crowds. I'm going to … Continue reading Overcoming The Fear of The Unknown, One Panic Attack at a Time
If you’ve not read from the beginning, you can start here. Chapter 2, A trip down memory lane Hannah scanned the room for faces she recognised. It had been a number of years since this particular group had assembled but the family unit overall wasn't terribly big. In addition to family there was a steady … Continue reading Reconciled – Chapter 2 A trip down memory lane

So I missed writing all together yesterday. Technically speaking today should be Day 8 but I'm stubborn. And a little OCD. Missing Day 7 just feels wrong 🙂 So why didn't I write yesterday? Let's just say it was a hard day and leave it at that, shall we? If you'd seen me I may … Continue reading Gratitude Day 7 – Sometimes being grateful is bloody hard work
Today I've been thinking about flexibility. No, not the gymnastic kind. Even though I am short enough for the sport, I remember watching open mouthed as my son's girlfriend, who is a dancer, casually pulled her leg up into the air so that her ankle was positioned next to her cheek. Good Lord! The kind … Continue reading Gratitude Day 4 – Treasure the Moments that Shape Us
So today's blog is a bit different. I've been asked to share a new recipe I made up today for Paleo Frittata Muffins. I can't claim the full idea as my own as I got it from another website but I will share the version I created to match our family tastes 🙂
I've come to the realisation that until I can chose for me, I won't be able to fully help those around me, so today I chose. I chose me first even though my choice is informed by both the needs of my family, my business goals, my creative work and has a direct impact on my health.
