Give yourself a break and fill your own cup

Last week, my friend Renae posted on her Tranquil Me FB page about how she felt low mood creeping in, and how she overcame this by taking herself for a spa and sauna, even though she didn’t want to go. This post gave me the kick up the arse I needed that day, as I was in burnout aka compassion fatigue, and had spent the whole week resting. By the time I read that post though, I felt my own…

Let’s stop with the small talk

I was watching this great Ted Talk on YouTube the other day where Kalina Silverman describes how she started her Big Talk project. She talks about how life is so much more interesting when we skip the small talk. This is something I’ve always felt too; surface level bullshit conversations do absolutely nothing for me. Nada. You’re more likely to find me in having a deep and meaningful with someone, usually about their biggest challenge. My friends in London used…

Is it time to end your suffering?

I’ve been listening to a bit of Tara Brach lately and she has a great video about how to stop the war against ourselves.

What’s this thing called life all about?

“Remember that what you are seeking is also seeking you” As a 15 year old, I used to completely do my own head in pondering philosophical questions. Why are we here? What happens when we die? I used to sit there and try and imagine what happens when we die – I couldn’t imagine not existing anymore, so what happens instead? Never not existing? Combine those thoughts with hormones. Yeah. HARD WORK. I knew what I saw around me wasn’t…

Are you willing to inconvenience yourself for a better life?

I was listening to an interview the other day with Lisa Nichols about how she rescued herself from a life of poverty to become the successful person she is today. This is a must watch/listen as there were SO many gold nuggets I couldn’t keep up! Listen or watch here. One of the things that stood out was her quote “your conviction and convenience don’t live on the same block.” What she’s referring to is that most people want the…
