Telling yourself a better story

Protecting a Good Idea

We’ve all had them. Ideas that are special to us. Ideas that seem like they could turn into something good given enough time.

Writing your way out of stuckness

Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.  ~Swedish Proverb Well it looks like Monday has become our regular journalling day!

Defining Your Priorities in Life

Manifesting Your Best Self – A Journal Adventure

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

How to Interpret Your Dreams

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Your dreams are yours alone.

What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God. ~ Eleanor Powell I have never met anyone who wasn’t unique in some way, who didn’t have a special gift to share with the world. The problem is that most people don’t acknowledge their gifts because they are always […]

The gifts of childhood often come wrapped in ugly paper…

I know, I know. Everyone blames everything on childhood. It’s a therapist’s favourite playground. I’m revisiting childhood with you today.
