For a long time I have wanted to invite you all here. To a place where my mind and creativity can flow freely, to be observed or absorbed by either passers-by, or those who stay for good.
For the last few years, I have journeyed through the treacherous, the significant, the confronting and the unbelievably beautiful stages of growth and self-discovery. I decided if I was going to truly understand who I was, I needed to lay down the structures I had built around me, I needed to set my spirituality free and I needed to let myself dwell in a place of vulnerability and questioning. And so, I did. I questioned everything. I let my spirit run free through the maze of uncertainty - getting cuts and scrapes as it bounced from wall to wall and around tight corners. The structures came down and I started to feel the flow of energy that was there all along but I just never knew it. And I dwelled, uncharacteristically, in a place of vulnerability where the walls almost hugged me as I spoke to them. The slow, the mindfulness and the consciousness were finally able to take their place as judgement, expectation and self righteousness began to lose their significance.
So here I am now, still very much on my journey, but investing, learning and growing everyday. Throughout the last few years I wondered how many other women (and men) were going through the same thing I was; wrestling with understanding who they really are, not knowing how or with who to talk to about their struggles, and finding health - mentally, spiritually and physically. It was then that I enrolled, studied, and became a qualified Health and Wellness Coach. I wanted to equip myself with the tools needed to better understand mine, and others’ spiritual, physical and mental health journeys. At this time I also started to share more on social media. I wanted to breach topics that were real, ones that we had been lead to believe were socially inappropriate or ‘taboo’. I heard hearts calling for vulnerability and honesty so I wanted to start these open conversations and provide a safe place to have them. Naturally, this blog was the next step in creating that place.
The slow, the mindfulness and the consciousness were finally able to take their place as judgement, expectation and self righteousness began to lose their significance.
It is because of you, my lovely friends and community that I am incredibly willing and very honoured to share my thoughts and experiences - the good and the bad. It is with your encouragement and kind nudges that this blog was created and I cannot thank you enough.
I can’t wait to share honestly and chat intentionally about all things; women’s health, self care, mindfulness and meditation, spirituality, slowing down, mental health, living abroad, travel, conscious consumption, sustainable living, ethical shopping, wholefoods and simple cooking, low-tox households and zero-waste tips.
It’s going to be wild.
