I’ve always hated writing bios….
Perhaps it has to do with the pressure to present, restricting oneself into a short paragraph which doesn’t tell much of our story. Sure, accolades are great, but i’m interested in the journey and the process that brought us to that point.
So much of this world is fixated on a result. A statistic. A number. A ranking.
What does that tell us really?
What are we measuring this against?
I’m interested in the process. The heroine’s journey. All the factors and tiny decisions made that brought us to that place.
What did we learn?
How did we seemingly fail?
What struggles did we encounter?
And how did we move through that?
Despite our traumas or patterning or limiting beliefs.
Give me the grit. Cause those contain jewels.
This alchemy, the result of you choosing to show up, get up and move forward. Even if that meant laying in bed to lick wounds for however long it took.
This contains jewels too. Healing in action. For sometimes we don’t notice the catalyst that enabled us to get out of bed. To choose to get dressed and face the world again.
The courage it takes to hold an idea, to nurture it with possibility and sometimes wavering trust. Enough at least to grow into something.
That becomes something else.
That grows and changes and evolves and might die, but becomes something else.
It’s our story.
Our own unique process.
With significant tiny catalysts.
That enable our life to be what it is.
Magnificent and whole and perfect.

Work with me!
fancy a gigantic “lately” scrapbook update + diary of my summertime moments? expect a behind the scenes gander at my inner landscape (not a euphemism), news updates, resources, personal photos, peach outfits + a playlist!
resilience as action.
hope as practice.
Slow jam Sunday. Even though it’s not raining, still a forever fave + we get the metaphor, right?
So back in 2016 i was going through a particularly tough time. not so hopeful to say the least. some are often surprised to hear that, in light of the work i was doing those years. but to anyone reading who is moving through dark days, i know it might seem naff for me to say, but i’ma say it anyway, i hope you can read this and believe things will get better. i believe in you, and i admire and cheer you on for showing up to meet this day. i know things can feel hopeless, perhaps dark and frightening, but you will get through this. i promise, you can and you will.
A side effect to the gathering of copious amounts of things i love, admire, respect and adore, is that i wonder if it’s too much. Replace “it’s” with “i’m”. Cause that’s at the root, right?
I wonder if i overwhelm with sharing. I- just- get- SO - enthusiastic about things.

In the last few days alone, Gatwick airport air traffic control computers went down, the internet was out in our entire district for the day, numerous apps and platforms with glitches or completely down across the world (the last time happened on the last Mercury Retrograde in March) and is the sat nav issue resolved yet? I mean...the energy is quite something! Have you observed anything?
Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.
What do you think - should we take a trip?!
