For all of us, the key is to pay close attention to which activities make us feel most alive and in love with life – and then try to spend as much time as possible engaged in those activities. -Nathaniel Branden

Sometimes there are no words…

My words have been stuck lately, somewhere between my head and my heart. There’s change in the air. A deepening of focus, which feels both sweet and somehow simpler – all while leaving me quaking in my boots (that’s how I know it’s time). But it’s not. quite. ready to see the light of day, […]

When all you can do is hold on

It’s no secret I like a peaceful life. Sure, I like celebrations and fun and the chaos that a house full of teenagers and their friends and our friends and all the extended family creates. But I do like to be able to sit in peace at the end of the day and breathe deeply […]

To spend this time with you.

I want to sit with you on our verandah, a scalding cup of tea in hand, one foot tucked up under me, both of us comfy and relaxed. We’ll talk. There’s no agenda. No list of things to talk about or get off our chest, just an expectation. That to and fro, here and there, […]

I sit in the dappled rays of early morning sunlight, the fog that rolled in earlier burning off quickly today. The tide is out, way out, and I can smell the mudflats on the rivers edge this morning. Earthy. Damp. Fertile. My mug of tea, clasped between my hands, is warming – inside and out. […]

“…when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad I simply remember my favourite things, and then I don’t feel so bad…” The chorus (written by Rodgers & Hammerstein for The Sound of Music in 1959) to this enduring song is so catchy. There’s something about our favourite things that has the […]

At the Intersection of Your Work & Your Life

When you’re on a mission to change the world (or your little corner of it), it can be hard to juggle everything. Love, family, health, spirit, home, mothering, fitness, work. We start to rationalise away the disconnect we feel, the restless energy we cannot assuage. Yet this I know: We can stop seeing our lives […]

Home Sweet Home

Home. It’s more than a roof over our heads. It’s more than a place we eat, wash, and sleep. It’s even more than the place we love our beloved, or raise our family.   Home. It’s sanctuary from the world, for when we need to retreat, restore, refuel. It’s our haven, to nourish our bodies, […]
