Will it matter when you’re ninety years old?

It’s my birthday next week. It’s a strange one for me. I was journaling earlier this week and I had this knowing inside that this is my halfway mark. This is it. I have lived half my life. Made my choices. Received incredible learning. It’s been… an interesting time of contradictions. Looking back though I feel […]

They don’t have to like you to follow you.

Today I’m writing to the leaders I’m writing to those who were born to bring change. Those who are here to create. The artists, the healers, the achievers. Those who look around and see the systems is broken, stuck together with sticky tape whilst deep cracks show up again and again. I’m writing to those who […]

Committed – either you are or you’re not

My arms are shaking. My chest is aching. I look at the load. Do I take some off? Do I reduce the reps? What to do? Oh fuck off, you and I both know that’s not even an option LOL. Yet as I eye out the weights stacked I can’t help but think how easy […]

I was only going to warm up for 5 minutes but…

It’s going to be one of those days… I feel it in my bones. Which is why I really shouldn’t have been surprised when I got onto the stationery bike for a 5 minute warmup only to find myself getting off more than an hour later dripping sweat pumping thriving. I shouldn’t be surprised because […]

Pity Parties Be-damned!

This blog is not for the faint of heart. Not for the ones who enjoy feeling sorry for themselves. Those who thrive in misery. If that’s where you’re at today, stop reading. Go scroll on Facebook for some ridiculous image of some sorry ass telling you it’s okay to stay in this space of darkness. […]

When you’re done pretending to be vanilla.

Oh how easily we fall into the trap. Giving in to the noise that seems so prevalent in todays ‘social’ society. The comparison. The jealousy. Seeing all the ‘overnight’ success stories and wondering what the hell you’re doing wrong. The feeling of being a total fucking failure. All the time. So we give up on […]

It’s time for next level goals. No more fucking around.

The planets are lining up for your success – the question is are you? October kicks off with Mars making an ideal angle to Pluto not only supporting you to move forward with your goals, but putting you in the power seat to boot. Which means October 1st is THE ideal time to set your next […]

Have we seriously become a generation of spectators?

This is my personal truth. Nobody is going to make shit happen for you. Nobody is going to put you on a pedestal and adore you. Nobody is going to change the world to suite your idea of peace and love and prosperity. Nobody is going to discover a magic pill that allows you to […]

The exquisite power of awareness and conscious choice

Oh dear, this is a little embarrassing. Letting you into my private ‘hall of shame’. Because you know, I like to share my shit with you once I’ve figured it all out and have new results to show. Once I’ve gone through the dark tunnel and I’m jumping in joy in the light. But not […]

If you want perfection, I’m not your gal.

I’m going against the grain. And it might be costing me dollars, but it’s bringing me success. You see Darling, I made a choice a long time ago to give up the pursuit of ‘perfection’. I don’t believe in perfection. I don’t believe in only putting my successes out there. I don’t believe in only […]
