43

Today I turn 43.

2016 picked me up by the scruff of my neck, kicked my arse, chewed me up and spat me
back out.

And I’m grateful.

It’s taken a few month of some serious introspective work, some full on counselling, the most beautiful energy healer in the world and a team of health professionals to keep me […]

WHAT I HAVE LEARNT IN 42 YEARS OF BEING ME

Today I turn 42. I am actually loving my 40’s. I have never been fitter or healthier. I have never had so much uncertainty in my life but felt so at peace with it. I have never trusted in the now taking care of the future as much as I do now. It’s good.

And yes, the […]

6 WAYS TO GET YOUR STORY INTO THE LOCAL PAPER

I am in unique position. I am editor of two regional magazines and also a freelance writer regularly pitching story ideas (mainly travel related) to other magazine editors. It’s an interesting place to be and it has highlighted to me how unique each magazine and publication is, whether it be a local paper, travel-related, all about […]

THE INS AND OUTS OF INNER HARMONY

These past few years I’ve gone through somewhat of a transformation. Stressed out and angry (and not knowing why) to a whole lot calmer (it’s a work in progress trust me) and taking steps each day to move towards my purpose and the things that I really love to do – which is write, travel […]

TO NANO OR NOT TO NANO: THERE IS NO QUESTION

Man, I love a goal setting exercise. Mix it in with a bit of global writing love with a side order of competition and I am in!

Last year I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), a global writing movement where the goal is to write 50,000 words of a  novel in 30 days.

I didn’t […]

HOW THE UNIVERSE DELIVERS ROCK STAR PARKING SPOTS

Part of the process (oh my! that sounds pretentious – oh well) I’ve been going through in the past 18 months is letting go of the need to control.

Letting go of trying to control what people think and say not only about me…but about anything I didn’t agree with actually.

Letting go of the people’s reactions […]

WHERE I AM

I am here.

It’s where I am.

And it’s okay.

In fact, it’s more than okay. The reason why stopping long enough to look around, get my bearings and take a breath means so much at this point is because just over a year ago I took a leap of faith.

I left my corporate events job to focus […]

TO CLICKBAIT OR NOT TO CLICKBAIT

 

Who knows what clickbait is?

I do. And I hate it. In fact, I have stopped following multiple websites on various social media platforms because of it.

The subject of clickbait comes up every now and then when I’m discussing online content with clients and I must say, I do recommend they steer clear.

Clickbait is a ‘teaser’ […]

HOW TO WRITE A BIO

 

I was going to say this one is for the small business owners today but it’s actually one for anyone who has an online presence or profile.

So what is a Bio? or Biography?

It’s a snippet of information that tells people all your best bits in a short space of time. It’s like a mini highlight […]

I HAVE NEVER…

I have never…kissed my mum goodbye not knowing if I would see her again
I have never…run into a hail of bullets while soldiers fell around me
I have never…thrown myself to the ground as artillery pounds into the dirt around me
I have never…held the hand of my best friend as he slipped away
I have never…sat awake […]
