What if our “deficits” are really our strengths?

Hey guys. So, today I want to talk about a gorgeous perspective shift that has made my life so much better. It’s an idea that comes from my occupational therapy (OT) school days, and like so much from that time steeped in the badass world of knocking down barriers, empowering and enabling people, it’s had a huge impact on my approach […]

What’s an Introvert, Really?

Woah guys, woah. I just had a major Aha. I’ve just learned what an introvert really is – I thought I knew! But I didn’t. I always thought is was about how you feel energized, whether it’s with people or through solitude. Sort of, but not exactly. I am viscerally excited by this new information, which as I […]

A Love Story in 30 Days

Hello from the Netherlands! After all that baby hooplah, we’ve finally managed to squeeze in a little family time by the sea. It’s been really good. Well, okay it’s rained every day, but I gotta say – and hold on to your hat, because this is seriously sentimental – all that rain does help you […]

Dressing to feel good

This is not a fashion post, exactly. Or a DIY post. But I am going to talk about clothes. And I am making myself a dress – I started it suddenly and without a pattern at about 10pm the night before last, but it seems to be miraculously working out!

Do Something Different

A delightful Thursday to you! How do you like this week’s graphic? Achim wasn’t sure but I’m into it. But then, I also happen to be wearing aztec-print leggings with a red on pink striped skirt, a blue and white striped scarf and a t-shirt in a marvellously clashing shade of pink.

A Sweet Valentine’s Day Activity

Hey Guys! So, how are you with Valentine’s Day? Such a divisive one, ol’ V day! Thankfully, my good mom always made a thing of it with us at home (she still sends us cards and treats!), and it seems to have blessedly stuck as a nice time to celebrate love of all kinds, without much romantic pressure. I’ll maybe make some heart-shaped pancakes […]
