Change Is Always Possible

Blame, be a victim and suffer if you want to, but you don’t have to, it’s a choice.

When I first heard that I am responsible for the state of my life and no-one else but me, I didn’t like it. Poor Me I was just waking up to the troubled state of my childhood and firmly intrenched in “poor me”.  I had all those terrible things done to me, don’t you know?

What is it like to be me?

After watching this Sustainable Human video,  What is it like to be you? (Available at the bottom of this post) I thought about how very easy it is to judge others, to imagine we know how they are, what it’s like for them, to see the outside and think we understand the inside. We don’t. I thought about

Create space in your life

Do you create space in your life, if not why not?

In the past I could or would not create space in my life. My water tight way of living made sure no rogue thoughts or feelings seeped through to upset things. Some of this began to change when I started working through Rick Brinkman’s Life By Design, programme with a couple of friends. As we tackled our

Can you face the void?

A few years a go I wrote a blog called How To Be Happy With Less. It was the start of a long process of simplifying my life. Although massive strides have been made I still have a way to go. My life was incredibly cluttered physically, emotionally mentally and spiritually; there’s a lot of

Sometimes we just need to leave things alone for a while.

Earlier in the year I planted some turmeric. It’s all the rage isn’t it?  So trying to grow my own seemed like a good idea. Mmmm, seems twas not to be. Nothing happened and nothing happened. Of course, I was tempted to dig around and see; was anything actually going on below the surface, any

Easter – what does it mean for you?

I have adapted this from a blog I wrote a few years ago while living on a boat in Greece, it still resonates for me today? Easter was a lovely simple affair, in Greece they don’t go in for the massive commercial take-over of every religious festival like we do in the UK. It’s so

More Low Sugar Treats

More recipe requests prompted this blog post. I attended a wonderful Forest Gardening course at the weekend, hosted by Kintaline Farm and run by Ludwig of Earth Ways. These sort of thing usually involved shared lunches, and lots of tea and biscuits which can be a bit of a problem for me as I don’t

Sugar – tips tools and truth to help you change your relationship to the white stuff.

I have had a love-hate relationship with sugar for years. It began in childhood shaking the white stuff over margarine slathered slices of bread after school, buying big bags of penny buns last thing on a Saturday when they were cheap and  rushing to the sweetie shop with my pocket money to stare in awe

Clean Up Your Act

I’m on Day 28 of  Kelly Brogan MD’s 44 Day Vital Mind Re-set, and I’m LOVING it! It’s far from plane sailing but I’ve been down the detox route before so I knew a little about what to expect. However what I didn’t realise was just how all encompassing her re-set would be. Diet is a
