Promise Of A New Day

When we question where life is taking us or we feel adrift without direction, it can be overwhelming and set off bouts of anxiety and stress. This then feeds into everything we do and how we approach our day; sometimes wondering where our purpose lies.

Love Yourself Enough (Poem)

Alongside our studies, jobs or careers, there can frequently be persistent pressure in our personal lives to always stay motivated or constantly pursue the next goal; being productive is often seen as the most significant sign of success in our lives.

Nurtured Through Truth

We have the ability to develop connections to everything around us. Finding ways to relate to each other can represent a significant part of recognizing how we move through the world. All of the things we fill our life with can be something to bond over and discover a sense of contentment.

Boundaries (Poem)

Setting boundaries that help improve our lives by maintaining our mental health and emotional well-being should be seen for what they are; a necessary kindness we show ourselves that nourishes and restores. It's essential we remind ourselves about this every now and then ...

Better Times Ahead …

When life is a bit of a struggle and difficulties sometimes linger, or things don't quite turn out how we planned, it's encouraging to receive a little reminder that better times are ahead. We may have to work at it and even ask for help, but change will be ready when we are. Being kind to ourselves in times of stagnation, change or upheaval etc represents an act of resiliency and self-love -- we're worth it.

When Change Comes …

A new year that's ushered in with a countdown to midnight can often represent an opportunity to begin again, set some goals and hope for better. There's something intrinsically uplifting about the resetting of a calendar that hints at a second chance for us all.

More To Come …

It can be easy to believe that something we're working through or struggling with won't get any better or that the weight we're carrying will only become heavier. For a time, it will feel like things may never blossom, improve, or be fulfilled -- but we haven't overcome everything that's crossed our path so far for this to be where opportunity, growth and love stops. There are more good things to come.

After The Rain

Nature isn’t passive, it’s neither rushed nor aimless. It has vibrancy, resiliency and purpose. It is home to many who rely on its seasons and cycles. It is home to us too and has so much to share if we just stop and take the time to understand what it can teach us.
