Were you made for these times?

Have you set sail yet? Yesterday I was listening to a meditation by Tara Brach and near the end she read some writing by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  This writing spoke to me on a deep level. It reminded me to keep going even when times are tough and that I am not alone. There are

If we look after our hurt places we can change the world.

Sometimes we don’t realise how much we have changed until a situation comes along and we find we behave quite differently to how we might have in the past. That’s what happened to me this week. The rain in Argyll can be relentless at times, as you can hear in this video. My upbringing left

Can you put yourself first without feeling guilty?

I have been attempting to do this since late last year, it’s a challenge! Human lives can exert huge amounts of pressure at times and occasionally it feels like too much, we get swamped. That’s what happened to me during early winter last year.  Several difficult events occurred in my life and in the life of those

Why I don’t wear a poppy and how there are more permanent ways to honour and respect those who have lost their lives or suffered through war.

“I felt then, as I feel now, that politicians who took us to war should have been given the guns and told to settle their differences themselves, instead of organising nothing better than legalised mass murder.” Harry Patch Today many will have been involved in commemorating the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian

Does judging others cause you more harm than good?

Did you see what she did? I can’t believe he said that? He’s so………. She’s a………. They’re…….. On and on it goes, that little voice inside passing judgement on others, their choices and behaviours, what they think, feel and say. We act like we know better and somehow we have the upper hand. It’s a

Self-care, the answer to remaining calm; we all know this so why are we so bad at it?

I used to run on adrenaline all the time, but I had no idea I did, that was, until I started to calm down. Calming down is not coming easily to me. My default motorway wide neural connections are to rev up and run. I can pretty easily get tipped into high dramarama with the

Changing The World One Oatcake At A Time.

I started to write about making my own oatcakes and out came all this! Several times over the last few months I have heard things which alarmed me, information which suggests the global collapse is upon us, disaster imminent. I freaked out.  I felt I couldn’t cope with the information, I have no reference points for
