Low self-esteem is an awful and difficult thing to live with, and often an even harder thing to overcome. With such a low opinion of one’s self, it is near impossible to believe any complimentary words offered to you by another person. But, why is it that we find it so difficult to see ourselves … Continue reading Start Believing the Compliments
Breaking up with my spiritual guru was not easy. I feel like I am having to start the process of discovery and self-identity all over again. I have to take each of my beliefs and examine them clearly to see if they are the bricks I want to build my life with. It is uncomfortable and part of me wishes to run and bury my face in Doreen’s skirts, but I also recognise this as an incredible opportunity for growth and adventure.

It can be a difficult and lonely time … Continue reading Some Musings of a Single Girl
Love. Romance. I'm definitely not an expert in either, and I have definitely spent far too much of my life hiding behind idealism and romantic fantasy. It could never be as good as it is in my head so why bother, right? Wrong! I am choosey, but not in a shallow way. I only want … Continue reading Love. Romance. What’s it all about?
I can't believe that we're coming to the end of another year. This post-Christmas, pre-New Year time is a veritable cocktail of emotions as we look at what has been and think about what there could be to come. I myself feel a mixture of pride for what I achieved, lamentations for what didn't work … Continue reading End of Year Thoughts
Arriving in Queensland, Australia to visit my family a couple of weeks ago, I had the unexpected treat of attending a talk by Taryn Brumfitt, founder of the Body Image Movement. Although she is a well-known campaigner, writer and speaker, I had not heard of Taryn Brumfitt before that night, though I ended … Continue reading Body Love
