Anxiety Champions Part2:

Part two in my series on Anxiety Champions is someone that I have never had any interaction with but I would love to meet one day. If you have never heard the name David Wright then you have very sadly missed what I believe to be the greatest season ever of Survivor (yes, my favorite... Continue Reading →

#NaNoWriMo2016 Day 1:

This is my first year participating in the National Novel Writing Month for 2016 (#NaNoWriMo2016). I actually signed on a while back and forgot about it, and to be honest I didn't really know what was going on. As you all know I am writing my story, but what you probably don't know is that...

Caught in gun fire!

My husband and I travel a lot. We always have, as young backpackers then as a young family, then with work as we grabbed a bunch of fabulous opportunities around the globe. We are somewhat more settled now, having come full circle and literally emigrated in such a way that we circumnavigated the globe, east... Continue Reading →

3: Self Care is not following a script…

This one is really simple. There is very much a formula around the space of implementing self care; knowing when to self care, what works for us personally, and sometimes even needing to methodically implement it. Paradoxically however, the worse shape I am in the more I need self care, but also the less my brain... Continue Reading →

This is SUCH an important question, and the answer even more so. All around us these days we see stories... Continue Reading →

An anxious Piece of Pottery

I made this bowl the other day, ... (well, this is only the underglaze, those pencil lines will burn off in the kiln and the colours are all actually bright and dark). But I made it after seeing a similar quote on the Facebook page of a fellow writer, and it speaks to me on... Continue Reading →

2: Self care is not what everyone else says it is

Self care is not simply what everyone else says it is. After I got it through my thick skull that self was not going to force me into a beauty salon, we started looking for other things. One of my psychologists kept telling me to join a bookclub. Again, it did nothing but make me upset... Continue Reading →

1: Self Care is not the same as Pampering.

  Self care can include pampering, but many people (like me) who did not grow up with any kind of care, (self or any other kind), it is easy to confuse the words "self care" with "pampering". Well into my painful and confusing journey towards self care I confused these two things almost all the... Continue Reading →

What Self-care is NOT..

It is not pampering... It is not what everyone else says it is... It is not following a script... It took me a VERY long time to learn this. When I completely fell apart my psychologists would try and help me to regroup and find some safe space. But I had never know safety and... Continue Reading →
