What to do when you’re forced to let go…

When you decide to let go, it empowers YOU. When we make the choice to let go, we change the dynamics of our lives, and by default, the lives of those around us. So what happens if you are at the receiving end of letting go? We’ve all been there. Someone dies. We’re fired from […]

Knowing When to Let Go

Be brave and let go. Let go of fear, and pain. Stop holding to the thing that is tearing you apart. While you hang on, grimly gripping and clutching this to you, you deny yourself freedom, new gifts, love. It is madness to presume that you are more wise than the Universe. Let go. Trust. […]

I drove from my farm to Brisbane very early this morning, leaving before dawn.  To be honest, I was feeling a little flat. It’s something I know you can all relate to.  Sometimes life just weighs you down a little. As much as I love my work, I felt sad to be leaving my husband […]
