The ability to articulate abuse is what set me free.

I’ve talked about domestic violence at nauseam. I’ve offered my perspective, my pain, my opinions, my observations and various assumptions of perspectives. I’ve tried my hardest to keep my blog as my feelings and my point of view. My intention has always been two-fold, go through my pain and protect myself. When I decide toContinue reading “The ability to articulate abuse is what set me free.”

Are you a Sunday Morning person?

One of the best things about quarantine is realising I was living my ideal life. A life I was actually proud of. It took me 18 months of active building to create this life. A life I did not need to escape. In my flow of doing what made me feel alive. A flow ofContinue reading “Are you a Sunday Morning person?”

Bittersweet beginnings

A few years ago I decided to break my silence. I didn’t know what I was walking into. I just knew when I told friends in private, it did not result in safe situations. My options were to continue to ignore the darkness, embrace more darkness or expose all of the darkness in public. TheContinue reading “Bittersweet beginnings”

There is NOTHING simple about doing the work.

Every once in a while, the Universe decides to spinkle my life with amazing people. To be fair, my life is filled with amazing people. Sometimes I allow my emotional pain to sit in the drivers seat preventing me from seeing things for what they are and people for who they are. With all theContinue reading “There is NOTHING simple about doing the work.”

Happy Mother’s Day

Acknowledging that I’m allowing myself to get lost in the emotion of it all. Today is Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate and honour the very person that brought you into this world. The first person that wiped your butt. The first one to feed your soul. The first one that comfortedContinue reading “Happy Mother’s Day”

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 inContinue reading “Observe feelings without becoming emotions”

When Flying Monkeys Reveal Themselves

My morning is filled with tests of all sorts. More unheralded people from my childhood hometown are coming out to test me. To reveal parts of me that need additional healing. A constant struggle on where to focus. Am I continuing to focus on my wellness? Am I being kind to myself? One of myContinue reading “When Flying Monkeys Reveal Themselves”

The Emotional vs Rational Mind

It’s [relatively] easy to understand the difference between the emotional mind and the rational mind when you are NOT in an emotional state. For me, being in the USA, I feel that I’m constantly in an emotional state. Rather than observe my emotions, I tend to feel like I’m drowning in them. My perception ofContinue reading “The Emotional vs Rational Mind”

Embrace your Magic. Realize your Purpose.

May is mental health awareness month. A month that is SUPER important for me. I spent over a year openly sharing my journey of embracing, understanding, accepting, growing from domestic violence. During that journey, I was called all sorts of names and labelled all sorts of things. At first, I would have massive reactions toContinue reading “Embrace your Magic. Realize your Purpose.”

Chakras: Dancing between Heart & Crown

I like to think of myself as being confrontational. I know this is the furthest from the truth. This label is actually one that was forced on me by family. It was used each time that I decided that I wanted to protect myself. Being confrontational meant using my voice against someone trying to causeContinue reading “Chakras: Dancing between Heart & Crown”
