Which wolf to feed

What constitutes a great movie in my eyes is one that inspires me in some way. For some movies, this means, blown away brilliance that causes a shift in who I am and where I am going. For others it is way more subtle, a single scene or line, that gnaws away at me for…

Giving up doing it my way

I like to do things my way. After all, I have a few years under my belt and I know stuff. But here’s the thing – MY WAY doesn’t always work. Take my ascension meditation practice for example. My teachers have told me (several times mind you) that the way to get the best results is to…

The gratitude attitude

I reckon there are always, ALWAYS things that we don’t like in our lives. They may not be big things but there are always things. But I have been noticing lately the attitude I have towards these ‘crappy’ things and how this attitude impacts my life. So I thought I would start playing with changing…

Make your heart sing

If I have learned anything in my life so far, it has been that you have to do the things that make your heart sing. The things that make you want to get out of bed each morning, the things that make you giggle, that inspire you, the things that light you up. When you…

Looking for happiness

I am looking at the title of my website – ‘from the REAL me’ and noticing how I don’t want to say what is really going on for me right now. Hundreds of thoughts are floating around in my mind – who is going to read this, I need to be careful as I don’t…

I don’t have all day

I have been on the Transformation Train (TT) for quite a long time now, unable to get off and yet unable to make it to the bright shiny carriages all the way up there in first class. Just when I think I can almost feel the soft squishy leather under my butt-cheeks and the extra pillows and…

Happiness 22

Today is about happiness and delving back into my past to find 22 happy memories. The first one popped into my head immediately but will the other 21 appear so easily – let’s find out!! Note, these are not in any particular order from best to worst, they are just written as they appear in…

Letting go… yet again

I haven’t blogged for a while because I have been busy working on a new digital magazine for teen girls. It, along with my paying job have consumed my life. I thought that I had learned from my past experience of cramming so many things into my life that I feel like I can hardly…

The end of overnight solutions

And it makes me really sad, or is it scared? Maybe both. Actually if I am honest, it just makes me angry. I started to write this blog about who I have been in past and who I want to be in the future but deleted it. What I really want is to have a…

Looks can be deceiving

Yep, everyone looks at me and think I look fine. And you know what, apart from quite a few extra kilos floating around my middle, and thighs and bust (the latter of which I don’t really mind too much because growing up I never really had any cleavage), I really do look fine. Unfortunately that…

Living on the edge

Right now I feel like I am right on the edge. It’s like I am sitting on the top of a cliff, teetering half on and half off, ready to jump (with a parachute of course – nothing suicidal about this jump). Just hesitating a little, scared that just maybe the parachute won’t open and…

Reset time

I started a year short challenge a little while ago and you know what, it didn’t go so well. I am not even sure why you know. It is like, the moment life starts going well, I need to trash it. I am not going to spend a heap of time analysing why, I have…
