Beware the sheep in wolves clothing!

The message woke me just after 3 this morning. Replaying events from the previous 24 hours. Asking to be shown what I was missing. Which is when it hit me: There’s a shit-ton of sheep walking around in wolves clothing. Now before you get all uppity with me, I have no problem with sheep. I […]

The fear beneath the perceived fear.

Had you seen me yesterday, you would have stood in bewilderment. Shaking your head in sympathy. Convinced that I’d finally lost my shit. Completely. Utterly. But you didn’t, nobody did, because they were all still sleeping. Whilst I was out, fighting my demons; my fears, dripping thickly in my throat. Challenging, taunting, calling me weak, […]

The only person you’re truly lying to, is yourself.

 Stop it. Stop telling me that you want to be successful when you’re not prepared to be uncomfortable.

I see this incredibly powerful, beautiful person of infinite potential, waiting around, for something to happen, something to change, to give themselves permission to finally stop holding the reigns in. I see […]

Your dreams – your responsibility

Good morning Sunshine. What you up to this week? Are you going to astound us with your brilliance? Are you going to create something so incredible that those around you will sit, mouths wide open, wondering who this delightful being of magnificence is? Are you going to go full out for everything that you’ve ever […]

Is thinking killing your badassery?

I can spot them a mile away- – the ‘thinkers’. They normally have a frown deeply creased into their foreheads. There’s a dark cloud hanging around them. Their energy is low. They talk in problems. Always trying to puzzle out whatever is eating them. They will start thinking of a goal they really want to […]
