FEAR When confronted with fear it is a very real feeling at that given moment.  Your heart starts racing at a speed of 200km's per hour and you feel as if you are literally being starved of oxygen. Instinct kicks in - that feeling of taking flight to get away from whatever it is that you fear.  And your brain is actively seeking an escape route. On my return flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil earlier in the month,...

Becoming a Parent - The Fear & The Faith

  Becoming a Parent – The Fear and The Faith The day I found out I was pregnant was the scariest thing that had ever happened to me.  Being one of those women that most do not understand purely because I never got to a point where it was something I felt would complete/compliment or define me as a female I was overwhelmed.

Are You ....

  Are You …   Treating yourself with compassion and love? Taking care of what your thoughts are? Do you know that you are very capable of having your dreams come true?   How can you treat anyone or anything with love and compassion if you are unable to practice this fundamental basic on yourself.  Simply put, you cannot.  It took me many years to understand and now practice what I preach.  No, it has nothing to do with having an inflated...

GRATITUDE The meaning is to be grateful, but do we really and truly understand the meaning of being grateful? Gratitude somehow goes hand in glove with the two words love and hate.  Strong emotional ties are brought to the fore when we speak of love or hate; and gratitude is no different or rather it should not be.  And gratitude is in itself a word of love when you sit and think about it. Are you grateful for...

Where to From Here?

Where to From Here?   Life has a habit of tossing you out of your comfort zone and mostly when you really do NOT want to move.  And we sit back and we wonder ‘’what have I done’’ wrong to deserve this punishment. Are you relating to this?  I am very sure you are.  We have all been there and done that questioning.  Ranting and raving at the unfairness of life, the horror of having to do something...

TRUST Trust a short word with a very strong undertone and meaning. Have you ever experienced that feeling of ''who can I trust'' or ''what a let down that was'' - of course you have. That is a normal reaction to any situation that has NOT gone according to YOUR plan mapped out in YOUR head. Here is the catch though. Do you then automatically become negative and see every aspect of life as being untrustworthy? Do you...

I see you

  Its a time of badges, certificates, medals, trophies, recognition, awards, prizes and ‘seeing’ of high achievement. I love seeing the kids that shine at this time of year – a big high heartfelt round of applause to you. You so deserve it for the effort you have put in. But this message is for the kids that didn’t get called up for any of the above…I SEE YOU. To the child that conquered their fear of heights,...
