“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
~ Douglas Adams
I’ve had a busy few days since Friday, the day of our anniversary Vomageddon. I worked all Saturday in Brisbane doing psychic readings and coaching, which was wonderful and then expected that on Sunday I would rest, write and have a quiet day.
Then on Saturday night I had a call from a long-time client. Her 42-year-old husband, injured in a motorbike accident two weeks before, had collapsed at home and been found unconscious on Thursday. He’d had a massive bleed in his brain and there was absolutely nothing that could be done for him. His medical team were going to turn off his life support system and she asked me if I come and sit at the hospital with her on Sunday morning before that was done. They have three young children together. What a gut-wrenching situation. So I held her hand and we meditated and prayed together, and I did what I could to provide her with comfort and guidance, and it was an emotionally shattering day for all of us.
The past two days I’ve been at another hospital supporting my own family while one of them has undergone major surgery followed by complications and more surgery.
I’ll be there again at the hospital today, and for the next few days too.
Everything else can wait. Everyone else can wait. What matters now is us, each other, and being together.
But right now on this early morning, I’m sitting at home in the city with Ben, the dogs at my feet, drinking Melbourne Breakfast tea by the mugful and soaking up the calm and quiet before another hectic day.
My Nana always said that a cup of tea made everything much better, and I do believe she was right.
2018 is a year of relationships and focusing on what matters. It’s a year for family, love, friendship, creativity, happiness and a slower pace of life. I’m really taking that to heart. How about you? Are you giving enough time to the people and activities that you love? Life is short and precious. Make sure that the choices you make help to minimise any regret over time wasted on the wrong priorities.
Biggest love and hugs to you, Nicole xx

Thinking of you and Ben and sending you (and extended family) healing and love.
Relationships ARE important, I am now just waiting to meet my “Ben”. It WILL be soon.
Love you and all you do for others.
When I was not feeling well as a little girl, my mom made me tea with milk and tea cookies. Everything was better after that. 🙂
Your nana was right. A cup of tea helps all things. My mother said the same thing,
I think my husband says a hot whiskey works too…
Sorry for all your sadness. I just took a dear friend off life support. It is hard to let them go.
Life can flip in a moment thoughts and prayers are with you x
You are certainly being stretched in all directions. I also find tea is so comforting in times of stress. Sending you lots of love. XX
Sending love Nicole.
Will continue to think of you all lovely. Xxx
