To push or not to push..

To push or not to push..

To push or not to push? To push for a response in somebody who is taking their time? To push somebody/my body on the mat, until every muscle is well and truly done in? To push my mum to stop giving me a hard time about being a bit wild? To push my opinions about food […]

Less Like Hard Work

Less Like Hard Work

I’ve been working with an intention for the last 3 weeks to not work so hard.  I know I know!  My work is on a freelance basis, therefore one needs to work really hard to make it happen (it’s ok mum, I’m doing great with work)..  Getting places on time.  Being in a committed relationship, this too […]

Candle Meditation

Candle Meditation

One of the most enLightening (excuse the pun) meditations, for me, is the Candle meditation.  Couldn’t be simpler and yet neither more beautiful and effective to calm the mind and bring you into the present. Set yourself a timer, if you’re new to meditation make it 5 minutes only, if you  have more experience and feel […]

WTF Can I do?..?

WTF Can I do?..?

WTF can I do?.. When I see her less than 20 dressed in dominatrix and pulling off a solvent for kicks.. Him so scared that he bullies the old man by-standing, playing out previous abuses that still traumatise him.. Her now not with us, at 14 gang raped and led to a life doomed by her druggy escape.. Him […]

Yoga being the seed for creation

Yoga being the seed for creation

Truth be told, although yoga IS a way of life, a way of living, breathing and being in the world, which I much admire; I haven’t made the time or felt I’ve had the stamina to self-practice in the physical sense (or even go to another’s class!) for months, probably as long as my blog writing has […]

The “L” Vitamin

The “L” Vitamin

Researching about depression for my Nutritional diploma and I came across this.  Wouldn’t you agree?  If not, I prescribe upping your dose and reassess: Vitamin L (The Love Vitamin) “..as coined by humanologist, Bethany ArgIsle.  One of the most important nutrients for optimum health is a daily dose (or more) of Love.  This vital human […]

We all need a little extra care sometimes..

We all need a little extra care sometimes..

How are you?  Really, not how are your problems but how are you feeling?  Consider this a rhetorical question; as the only person who can give us what we need is our self.  However, sometimes, when everything feels a bit overwhelming, it can help to have the objective input from another.. Sometimes even those who […]
