Just in case tomorrow doesn’t come…

Hey Beautiful It’s the eve of my birthday. I’m feeling a little pensive. A little sad. A tad emotional. As I look back on my life I see forty five years filled with some of the most exquisite life lessons and experiences. Lessons in love. Lessons in courage. Lessons in belief in self. Lessons in […]

There’s no fine in thrive

Isn’t it a little disgusting how we’ve been socialised to conform in the desperate yearning for acceptance? Isn’t it a little absurd how the culture of mediocrity has managed to take our most powerful tools and turned them into tools of enslaving us in average? Tools such as goals. Tools such as emotions. Tools such as words. We’re […]

Is this how you want to be remembered?

I still get chills. Every time I hear it. “All I want to do is trade this life for something new“ Each time I get taken back to that Thursday night at Virgin Active Randburg. We were riding. We were sweating. Some of us were cursing, using whatever we had to just to get to […]

The truth of you

I’m going to keep this to the point. You might disagree with me. You might tell me to go fly a kite. You might unfollow me. As long as I trigger that ugly AF ego of yours, I’ve achieved my aim. Here’s why: I see people hurting. Badly. I see people walking around miserable. Fat. Depressed. […]

What is being murdered by sympathy?

Have you ever experienced the fury of a momma bear when her cubs are being threatened? Probably not. Yet that is how I felt yesterday. I don’t allow too many people into my central heart space. That space is normally reserved for my boys, my family, my close friends, my clients. Probably because the passion […]

What is the worst thing that could happen?

I’m freaking out. I’m feeling old today. I’m feeling like I’m not where I’m supposed to be at this stage of the fight. I’m feeling like I’m playing too small. I’m feeling chicken. What’s this about? What’s the fear? The real fear? Not the one that I say I don’t have. Aaaaaaaah – I’m still afraid […]

It’s happening whether you face it or not.

There’s this old saying “Be careful what you wish for” Since understanding the true creative power of my words I’ve been really conscious of this. I now realise that we truly receive EVERYTHING we ask for – sometimes we’re just not very aware of what we’re asking for. So when I asked to see that which I’ve […]
