2014 has arrived bringing with it lazy days and anticipation of what the year holds. The first week was spent on the coast in less than perfect weather but we made the most of it. Beach time, long walks, mini golf and quiet evenings. Once again my writing mojo also took a holiday as it … Read more
I have moments when a part of me aches for the pure, innocent days of my childhood. Days when the best thing that happened was walking to the corner store with twenty cents to buy a bag of mixed lollies.

There’s a lot to be said for positive thinking but it is a bit of a catch-22. When things go well naturally we feel on a high. Life feels good and we feel like we can take on anything. Positive thinking becomes forefront of our mind and the laws of attraction (if they do exist) start to kick in.
The last few weeks have been good weeks.
I’ve been making peace with myself. I don’t like to get all philosophical and deep, okay, I do, but there has been a whole lot of personal growth going on here behind the scenes and I feel so much lighter and calmer as a result.
For a huge part of my life I have tried to hide who I am.
I have tried to be what others want.
I have followed paths influenced by others.
I have been embarrased and shy to show who I really am.
Perhaps it’s because until recently, I didn’t know who I was.
