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 no longer offer a “free” gift for signing up to my mailing list.

Much of our world is based on exchange be it monetary or some other way of giving to get. Capitalism in particular has honed this belief so strongly that many now expect such returns for almost everything they do.

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.

Saving Ourselves From Toxic People

Not always easy, but always liberating. As we change and grow in our lives we may come to realise that some of the people around us are not good for us anymore. Maybe we’ve let them boss us around, belittle us and put us down, maybe we end up drinking too much or taking drugs

Ooops, Lack of Self-Care Strikes Again!

I’m sharing this video from my bed. Why? Watching this reminded me why. It helped me rejoin the dots creating a picture I try to resist at times because it tells a truth parts of me find hard to accept. I have a pattern I run sometimes, which I’ve been running recently, it goes something
