I’ve been trying to live in the moment and be more present. I am constantly trying to stop and be aware of things around me that I may have missed before. I’m noticing beautiful flowers and birds – so many birds flying in a flock and dipping and swooping without bumping into each other. We could learn a lot from birds. I know I’m guilty of falling into automatic pilot and being oblivious of a lot around me.
I’ve become obsessed with reducing waste and being aware of how much we overindulge and don’t even realise it. Grabbing a bottle of water from the cafe instead of bringing it in a reusable bottle seems crazy to me and I’ve been trying to educate my kids (and my man) why this shouldn’t be an option and to look beyond. Recycling is good but maybe you don’t even need to use the bottle in the first place so it’s about thinking smarter and not just putting band aids on things for the short term.
We’re all going so fast. We need to S T O P.
Lately I’ve been feeling more and more invisible. Not to myself necessarily but to others and in different situations as I’ve been observing this recently as I take it all in. I see being invisible as a good and bad thing and thought I’d dive into this a bit deeper.

I just finished reading an amazing book, Total Focus, that put so many priorities in perspective in my life and I felt like I needed to share this with my people. You’re my people.
I am a perfectionist and I fight this daily. If I wait for perfection I would never get anything done. None of us would.
I just finished reading the Miracle Mindset by JJ Virgin, wow, powerful stuff! I definitely recommend this inspirational read that will help you to live better and be more present (especially with your kids and isn’t this why we had them!?).
We all have a tribe. You do. You really need your tribe. It keeps you just a little bit more sane than you would be otherwise without one. Otherwise you’d be floating around in nothingness. No one likes that feeling.
I recently read an article in Wellbeing Magazine about the breakdown of our tribes and community and the increase of isolation and loneliness. This is an epidemic although we can also take steps to connect with like-minded people and find our tribes and change the world.
It’s easy to say, I’ll do that later. Later can be a long time away and sometimes it’s never.
What are you waiting for? I know you have things to do, people to help, places to go… Sometimes we need to stop. And you’re allowed.
In my morning yoga class – where I find my creative inspiration – the teacher ended the class with some inspiring words that really resonated with me and I’m already implementing his strategy. S.T.O.P.
Well who doesn’t? If you say no, I don’t believe you.
I have a healthy relationship with money in that I like it and know what good it can do for me and my world and I’ve never been shy to say so.
I can feel an amazing movement in the energy all around me. This feeling of hope and something bigger as we come together in a common ground of connection. This change in both women and men enables me to literally feel the groundswell of humans coming together and wiping the slate clean to start over.
As my children get older I am more aware of building memories. I see them pulling away and wanting to spend more time with their friends in their own endeavors which is natural and normal. But it makes me aware of how precious time is and making the most of each and every day.
