Three Keys to Being Real

Being real, and working toward understanding who we are, is really hard work. It's not just daily, it can be hourly. Minute by minute.  But over the past six months or so I've been learning (much to my frustration, of course) some keys that seem to be relevant in moving forward and becoming more healthy … Continue reading Three Keys to Being Real

Overcoming The Fear of The Unknown, One Panic Attack at a Time

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

The daily swings explained: understanding a Cyclothymic mind. 

***UPDATE*** I've finally had a formal assessment for my mental health. Even though I feel the jury is still out on Cyclothymia, my psychiatrist has confirmed the original diagnosis of Bipolar 2, Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder.  To be honest, I am not worried. I am still 'relearning' about Bipolar 2 and how it differs from Cyclothymia, and … Continue reading The daily swings explained: understanding a Cyclothymic mind. 

Gratitude Day 12 – It’s the Little Things

Just a quick post today to say a BIG thank you to the people who have begun supporting me and buying my little eBook, It's Just Time to Be You over the past week or so.

Gratitude Day 7 – Sometimes being grateful is bloody hard work

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

Gratitude Day 6 – The mind is a curious thing

I realised today that there are times when I binge on fiction novels, or at least books in general and today I finished Insurgent, book number 2 in the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth. Gosh I just love her work! When I finished it though I went from feeling relaxed and happy to enjoy a … Continue reading Gratitude Day 6 – The mind is a curious thing

Gratitude Day 5 – We do live in a blessed country after all

I'm posting late tonight as I genuinely forgot about it earlier in the day and have just returned from a drive to Sydney and back to pick up the hubster from his work. The trains would have had him returning home close to midnight, and with a turn around starting at 5am tomorrow, this seemed … Continue reading Gratitude Day 5 – We do live in a blessed country after all

Gratitude Day 4 – Treasure the Moments that Shape Us

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
