    How to be brave instead of fearless

    Sometimes we think about being fearless as being a magic key to unlocking our dreams and our potential. But I want to stand in defence of fear today.

    My decision to stop being busy

    It was about 6 or 7 years ago when I had a conversation that changed my life. I was talking to my friend Laura and doing the normal ‘how have you been?’ exchange and before I answered, she preempted my response with ‘you’re so busy right?!’ And just like that, I decided something needed to […]

  • what's my legacy

    Wondering ‘What’s my legacy?’ Consider this

    With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s passing the idea of legacy has been on my mind. RBG’s legacy, politician’s legacies and indeed, what my own legacy will be.

    Being Unapologetically Me: Part 2 – Overcoming Resistance

    Last week I shared how I ventured into the nagging feeling and taken a good look at my life. How I’d dared to reimagine it and create a new, bold future for myself. But then once I had a clear vision a funny thing happened. Resistance set in. Resistance from others and also from myself. […]

    Being Unapologetically Me: Part 1 – My Unique Path

    If you’ve been here a while you’ll know I’m basically a self-help junkie! I love anything that challenges or that helps me improve. But lately I’ve been thinking about this constant desire to be better and I’ve realised this: the process of self-growth fundamentally requires for me to be myself unapologetically and to accept my […]

    Striving to be my best self – A reflection

    I’m not gonna lie… Last week was a shocker. I was definitely not being my best self.
