We are all broken

  I love this quote by Ernest Hemingway;   “We are all broken. That’s how the light gets in.”   Reminds me of a blog I wrote on kintsukuroi, a Japanese technique where they take broken items and piece them back together with gold, the idea being that we are more beautiful for having been broken.   The most amazing people I’ve ever met are those who truly know what it is to feel broken, and to learn, heal and…

How Is Not Confronting Your Dark Side Serving You?

It doesn’t matter who you are, or how successful you are – we all have shit from our past that can keep us stuck.

The core wound shit that has attracted people, situations and relationships into our lives that “prove” that we aren’t good enough over and over – until we do the work to heal our wounds. This stuff happens to all of us on some…

How are you allowing your partner to treat you?

I was chatting to a friend the other day about a guy she’s been seeing for a few months. She was really upset about the way she’s being treated and she’s well aware that she’s allowing it to happen due to her own limiting beliefs and self-worth issues.  Not everyone is as aware as my friend about how much she is feeding into the situation. A lot of us in relationships can get stuck into blame and victim mode when things aren’t going…

We hold the power to change our story

I was listening to a powerful TED Talk today about the power of forgiveness (which, if you’re followed me for a while, you know I like to bang on about this topic, and did a video interview about how forgiveness has transformed my life which you can watch here). WOW.   This is an incredible story about the power of forgiveness.   Warning: this isn’t for the fainthearted but this is Sammy Rangel’s story of being severely abused by his…
