I've not chosen a word for the year, so this feisty little question is my 2021 sidekick. Do you put off doing things because: You think you don't know enough. You think you need more experience. You don't feel confident. You think you need to find more clarity. So my challenge to you (and myself!) is next time you have one of these thoughts, try asking yourself, what are you REALLY waiting for? Then decide on your next step, no matter how small it seems. Questions to ask yourself to help move you towards...

Letting go can be exciting because it allows you to breathe again. It lets you invite into your life what you've not had the time, energy or mental/emotional capacity for. Do any of these sound familiar? 1. personal/professional relationships that gives you anxiety by day, and insomnia by night 2. physical clutter that fills you with dread each time you walk past it 3. to-do list items you keep pushing to the next day/week/month/year (me!) 4. a growing list of podcasts/online courses/books you must listen/watch/read (also kinda me..) 5. the expectation you put on yourself to do...

This time of year always stirs so many emotions for me. I look back on the year and reflect on how I could’ve done better. What I could’ve done more off. Differently. Nothing to do with sales, business goals or dream clients. And everything to do with family. Questions to ask yourself as the year draws to a close: Did I make time to truly listen to their stories? Did I look them in the eyes when they spoke to me? Did I tell them how much I appreciate their kind gestures and...

Would it be easier to just leave self care off your to-do list? Whether you have minis (kiddos) or not, feeling short of time is the most common challenge when it comes to self care. (Hint: my previous post has super simple self care ideas you can try) So...

We were emptying the dishwasher together the other morning, and I can't even remember what we were talking about, but I must have said something negative about myself when Mr 9 says, "Mama, you're always dissing yourself." So, yeah. I didn't really know how to respond and mumbled a "Yeah, I guess I do. I really shouldn't do that hey?" How did this kid get so wise!? He's been quietly watching. Taking it in. And then he calls me on it. Straight up. I mean, seriously, what type of example am I...

OVERWHELM // My little guy was not his usual cheeky full-of-beans self this morning. He was absent-minded and couldn't focus on getting ready for school. I could tell he was a bit overwhelmed. When I asked him what was up, he fobbed me off with a "I dunno...

I created these MORE Self Love Intention Cards because I know first hand how being kinder to myself can absolutely 100% transform, heal and bring a joy that comes from within. I wanted to make something that would help others find more self love in their every day. When you sift through the cards to choose what you want to focus on for the day (week..month..), you are taking the first step to prioritising yourself. How awesome is that!? Intuitively, you already know what you need MORE of, whether it’s to breathe...
