Showing up or Shying Away

How are you approaching life and in turn how is life approaching you? It’s true, I’m one of those people that push. I strive for better understanding, a wholesome life and lots of love because I believe we only get one life so live it with everything you have. Sometimes all that pushing can leave…

POWER

Being Seen, Being Heard

I attended my son’s very first Nativity play on 4th December, full of excitement and totally blown away by the experience. But it wasn’t solely his performance and witness of him blossoming in his new environment that made me melt, it also included a heart impacting speech from his Head Mistress: “Thank you so much…
