Generosity

After everything that has been going on recently, I felt compelled to post a poem I have written. One that reminds me of something very important. Generosity of mind and spirit, and importantly with yourself, is a key part of living a wholehearted life. I think we all need to remember this sometimes. I hope…

Influence

Last night I attended a lovely event. So lovely that I felt compelled to write about. Well, alright, I worked an event. I was not actually a patron. But still! I was there, I saw, I heard. It inspired me. Very apt since the event was called influence. Organised by YouTuber & Vlogger Azalea Hart,…

It’s a bloody journey, so maybe it’ll never be finished, due to it being a constant.” * Wise Words – Winnie   When I was younger I always knew I was a deep thinker, an emotional child who took in more than those around me. Perhaps due to my childhood experiences and circumstance, perhaps due to…

People often say that anger does nothing to help a situation. They say that this negativity creates a bad atmosphere, causing others to mistrust. Or fear you. Others infer that constructive anger has its place. Listening to it—what it is telling you in situations—taps into our own wants, desires, and sense of self. It helps…

Spiritual Evolution: Doing No Harm, Taking No Shit

In my last article, I talked about wholehearted living as an evolutionary spiritual act. That is, living in courage, vulnerability and authenticity. This might seem like a grand statement, but I believe it to be true. I believe we are all currently living through an accelerated state of spiritual evolution, with many more people looking…

Banishing Shame: Vulnerability, Courage & Brené Brown

I am no stranger to shame. I mean, unless you are a sociopath or worse, neither are you. Shame is that little voice inside your head that whispers your worst memories. It is the critic who eats you from the inside. Shame spreads far and wide. It is present in culture, the media, and every…
