Hey loves –
As we head into the holiday season, it’s only natural that ‘To-Do’ lists are growing, deadlines are looming and demands on our time are getting a little out of hand.
I hope that you are creating a few deep pockets of breathing space, here and there.
Space for reflecting on 2015, replenishing your energy reserves, and coming back to whatever is truly important for you in the present moment.
I remain genuinely surprised (and immensely grateful) that you allow me to do the work that I do.
Thank you for continuing to open my emails, replying to them and for reading and sharing my blogs.

Many of us learn to forsake our own wisdom, making decisions based on the opinions and expectations of the social systems we grew up in. Social systems that unintentionally pressure us to live in ways that are untrue to who we are.
What I keep returning to is this – that we all have an inner mentor; an authentic, wiser and soothing best friend. Someone who has the potential to heal, save, and bring out a larger vision for our lives.
We can’t change what we are not aware of. Grab a pen, download the pdf and underscore all of the habits that apply to you. NOW, you can start challenging these old mindsets.
Depression, anxiety, grief, loss, stress, crises – they happen to all of us at some point in time. Here’s what I’ve learned and witnessed, in the lives of the dozens of brave women I’ve worked with along the way:
Without regular maintenance, your car will eventually break down, so why should our most pivotal relationships be any different?
I’ve put together this summary of some of my recent relationship learnings, including valuable sources of wisdom, that continue to support, challenge, and guide me:
As a regular conference attendee, I expect to learn something new, be inspired, connect with some friendly faces, and have a thoroughly enjoyable experience. As a speaker, it’s a little different. I’m more focused on the value I can bring and the specific shift in perspective I’m able to offer.
Here’s why the Empowering Women Conference in Brisbane proved the ultimate experience.
Have you ever found yourself inadvertently walking through life, shut off from others? A little distant and disconnected or pretending that you don’t care?
Human beings have an innate tendency to protect ourselves from all types of perceived discomforts and dangers, but this can easily result in feeling disconnected from the exact things we need to maintain our humanity.
Here’s how to reconnect, quickly:
Here’s how to take ownership of your decisions. Steer the ship. Inhabit that place of freedom and peace.
However you are spending the holiday season, I wish you peace, connection, a full belly and plenty of laughs!
See you in 2016!
