DREAM IT. OWN IT. LIVE IT.

BEFORE AND AFTERS

“I didn’t want to die. I just didn’t know how to live.”

 

When I heard a happily married father and 7 figure entrepreneur say this, it hit me.

 

He was recounting a time from his younger years where he was lost and depressed and thinking he didn’t want to be here anymore, until one night, he stood looking...

IT'S WHAT WE'RE ALL WANTING

You and I, we might be really different, with daily routines, interests and family structure's poles apart.

 

Add your neighbour and mine, and they'll be different too!

 

If we shared our heart's desires, fears, financial wins and woes, health issues and childhood memories, we'd fill a book, 'cause this big, bold world is full of...

A YEAR OF WOW

2023.

 

Wow.

 

Just wow.

 

If you’re one of the few who escaped last year unscathed, savour it my dear friend.

THIS ONE REASON

What would you give to know your children would live a life they loved?

 

What would you pay to provide happiness and resilience to those you care about?

MOMENTS OF KINDNESS

Kindness, cheer, smiles, and loved-up feels. Imagine if that’s what everyone felt every day.

 

If that was reality, I imagine the energy bubbling between us would feel buoyant! Luscious, safe and supportive, thick almost, so when we swayed from our path, it was there to nudge us back to alignment. We couldn’t fall, or if we did,...

There’s family to love up on, friends to connect with, children’s invitations – seriously, how does a four year old have that many options?! – photo opportunities, pressie buying, drinks to be had and BBQ’s to attend.

 

Plus, it’s the end of the year. A pretty big year,...

How great does it feel when life's going well!

 

Your loved ones are healthy, the children aren't fighting, you feel on top of your to-do list and life's just GOOD.

 

In moments like this, it's easier to be patient, responsive and calm. And you might even get time to yourself. What a bonus!

Heck, what if you just want to feel better?

 

But you do you, beautiful person. Don't aspire for enthusiasm or passion if you're barely getting out of bed.
