Sometimes the solution is a ROADTRIP

I’m on another road trip! I love the hustle of the city. I loveeeeeee the open roads. For me, city life is still playing by the rules of ‘normal social constructs’. Deviating from these rules is not always received well… Sometimes I need to shrink myself to ‘fit in’. My magic is sometimes resisted… mostlyContinue reading “Sometimes the solution is a ROADTRIP”

5 Principles for Self-Care

Oftentimes, I receive ‘random’ messages from people in my social network. They compliment my bravery to share my story of domestic violence. They confess my vulnerability created space for them to also be vulnerable. They adopt some of my healthy habits in their life. The sky is the limit on comments that slide into myContinue reading “5 Principles for Self-Care”

Dog walking is my favourite hustle

A dear friend once told me, ‘if you are good at something, never do it for free.’ Understanding the intention, I’ve struggled with this concept. In my world, it’s easy to be good at things. It’s just a matter of discipline, focus, and priorities… anyone can build a skill. If your why is strong enoughContinue reading “Dog walking is my favourite hustle”

Self-Care: turning Hobbies into Hustles

Having a compassionate heart, I understand that people do not lie to me, they lie to themselves. Being a highly sensitive person, I can feel disharmony very quickly.

‘I am not my thoughts. I am the awareness beyond them’

Reminding myself that the Universe is speaking to me. Offering messages to help me, teach me, inspire me. Some messages are welcomed and others are massively unexpected. Everything is what I need… perhaps not what I want but always what I need.

Reframing encourages focus on forward movement

Throughout the last few months, I’ve been finding my voice with close relationships. Well, more accurately, using my voice with people I allow into my space. My space is sacred and just because someone is allowed in, does not mean they get to stay. Season.Reason.Lifetime. I treat everyone as a lifetime until proven different. OnceContinue reading “Reframing encourages focus on forward movement”

Observe feelings without becoming emotions

Trying my best to embrace situations as opportunities to learn something about myself and also others have been a bit of a mission. At least in the last few weeks, it’s been a mission. Part of me enjoys getting lost in the magic of a moment. No thinking, just being. Allowing things to flow in and flow out. Magical things happen when I’m in flow state…

Running is my FAVOURITE drug

Yesterday I overcame an obstacle that has been heavy in my heart for quite some time. My last race was in Italy, April 2018. 70.3 Ironman distance race. Branded under Challenge Roma. It was the first of 3 finish lines to symbolise healing from domestic violence. To me, the 70.3 was practice. The open waterContinue reading “Running is my FAVOURITE drug”

Resilience: The art of being a Lighthouse

There are so many thoughts racing through my mind at the moment. I believe the Universe is urging me to connect the dots… the dots being mental wellness and the corporate world. Are the two related? If yes, how? To me, it’s about being a lighthouse. And to be a lighthouse, one must have heightenedContinue reading “Resilience: The art of being a Lighthouse”

Love is a decision, not an emotion.

I’ll be the first one to admit most of my conversations are with myself. Sometimes others are present to plant a few seeds and other times, it’s quite simply an exchange between my head and my heart. Sometimes the conversations are via the blog; Sometimes the conversations are getting lost in Jess World; and whenContinue reading “Love is a decision, not an emotion.”
