Emancipation : the sequel

My friend just had a baby! It was an empowering experience for her and she got exactly what she wanted. Why? Because she said 'no'. She said 'no' to the epidural and being induced and 'yes' to researching, reading, preparing her body and mind and taking the power back. What an inspiration! And I'm not [...]

Lessons in Emancipation

A strange thing happened last Tuesday… I said 'no'. And it made me realise how much I normally say 'yes'. It felt good to refuse for a change. It had been a very hard day and I felt it was 'justified'. The people I said 'no' to were also totally cool about it and understanding. I [...]

When you wish upon the moon…

No, you will not land amongst the stars! Well, okay maybe you will. Today I am writing about two things I love - the moon and the ocean. Many moons ago (haha) I wrote about my love of the full one and its power to transform even the most sensible beetroot juice drinker into a raving [...]

Saturday Night Love-In!

Why hello there friend! Here I am on day TWO of the 'Seven Day Challenge', sounding like Lisa Curry-Kenny (she was an Australian swim star who retired to do muesli bar commercials). Already I feel like I've signed up for a triathlon. But I will push on and persist because that's the kind of focused and dedicated [...]

What if you had faith?

Hello lovely people! Here I am again up bright and early on day one of the challenge (I am writing this in the AM). It was a night of sleeping more restless than usual, as nights when I publish a post always are. My creativity and ego battled it out, each one struggling to gain [...]

Oh to be Frank!

Hi guys! I wanted to speak to you directly to get closer. Hi. How are you? Me? I'm o-kay. I've got blog fright actually. I've been feeling shy, self-conscious and silly. I was going to put this off for another day but I thought I'd try something different and just say what is on my [...]

keeper of the secrets

The human race seems to be separated into two groups – those who keep a journal and those who do not. I’m not saying that one is better than the other (because clearly I'd be biased if I did), but as a compulsive journaler, I just don’t know how the other group gets on in [...]

One small step for man…

I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This is one of the top five regrets of the dying. But what does it mean to live a life true to yourself? From the time we're born we're looking to our parents to teach [...]

out of the dumpster and into the daylight

Everyone should have a blog! Seriously. It is so nice to be able to say 'I feel like shit' and get a response. The act of revealing my true feelings was liberating in itself.  It was great to just confess to my downer, rather than slapping on a coat of white paint and an exaggerated [...]

Pulp Fiction

Do you ever feel like you are about to combust? If you would like to be comforted by someone else’s downer, read on. If you would like to be cheered and bolstered, please click on one of the other links to the right of the Wonderlust blogpage. Or maybe my downer will cheer and bolster [...]
