The Fact Is

The Fact Is That we are fine, that I am fine, although sometimes it doesn’t feel as though I am That this too shall pass; the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the happy and the sad It’s the waiting on reassurance from without which takes away one’s power of self and brings in doubt I […]

Friday 13th, Unlucky for Some

Friday 13th, Unlucky for Some

Friday 13th, Freaky Friday.  I have never really understood why. Some people are superstitious of numbers, some of black cats, some of walking over a certain number of drains; and others even more crazy things. This Friday 13th marks a D day for me, D as in Divorce.  The BIG D, especially at age 33, […]

Hip, Knee, Ankle Pain? Check your feet!

Hip, Knee, Ankle Pain?  Check your feet!

If you’re sitting or laying down, your knees (and ankles to some degree) aren’t weight baring; generally it won’t be noticeable if there is an imbalance or some damage in the muscles that produce the movement around these joints.  It’s when we translate weight through the legs during standing, walking, that the problems may present. When you walk, are you aware how […]

Awesomely Me

Awesomely Me

Whilst I’m sat here writing, half in a puddle of tea (fortunately herbal and unsweetened) and nearly over feeling ropey from lunch, I revel in another layer of, it’s all about me.  Also in the happening today, complete organisational fail as I wasted 3 hours not having my optician appointment (long story, long day!); forgot to […]

Confidence at the heart of it

Confidence at the heart of it

Confidence, has a lot to answer for.. I used to get so embarrassed about messing up what I was saying and teaching in front of a class, which in turn would make me stumble more and more over my words and delivery.  Especially when in front of a new group of people (teaching or otherwise). I’d […]

Cleanse and Detox

Cleanse and Detox.  The words cleanse, detox, diet, for some can be quite emotive, even scary, or a potential joy for remedying digestive issues.  What you eat, drink and inhale, literally forms the building blocks of your body, therefore, it’s important to know how to help your body to swap some of the shady, polluted […]

I Just Don’t Feel Like It

I Just Don’t Feel Like It

I Just Don’t Feel Like It.  Would missing that class be a total abomination of my physique, training, or education?  Would not going out with my friends, making me a bad friend, a recluse, or to never meet my match?..  What happens when I don’t feel like doing what’s on the agenda?   Would missing all those […]

An acknowledgement to kind people

An acknowledgement to kind people

Kindness.  Nothing less.. When I was about 17 I was starting to get closer to a long time flirting, high school time sweet heart. Within a couple of weeks, I cheated on him with his good friend, in his place.  I was drunk and stupid, had no idea what I wanted out of a relationship.  Since […]

Somatic Unwinding

Somatic Unwinding

So far, the experience has been profound.  I’m feeling a need on some level to do some crazy exercise to shake it all up and get back into my past default in questing for muscular strength.  However, having just received a second 1:1 hands on session of Body Mind Centering, from the lead trainer Katy […]

Probiotics, are they useful?

Probiotics, are they useful?

I’ve been recommended to take probiotic supplements for years; ever since I learnt that I had Crohn’s disease, friends and teachers have advised me to take this product or that product to repopulate my flora.  The doctors have never told me to do so, I didn’t really appreciate what my flora is and it all […]
