Remembering to be Me

Aloha! I’m coming to you today from sunny Lucerne! I’ve got my arse parked on my beach towel, the dampness of the grass seeping through, and I’m hash-tagging outdooroffice all over my brain. Whoa life is good! Firstly, I wanted to say welcome to y’all – the faithful and the new and those just passing […]

The Recovery (part 2)

After getting that off my chest (see last post), I realised that I didn’t feel better. I still felt crap. Now there is definitely a place in my life for feeling emotions besides happiness. I’m totally fine with sadness – enjoy it even – but feeling simply ‘crap’ and being annoyed with yourself is not […]

Life Without Drugs

‘The last time I thought about taking heroin was yesterday.’ Ha! At least I got your attention. Not my words, but Russell Brand’s from an article about his Life Without Drugs. Clean and sober for the past ten years, he continues, ‘I had received “an inconvenient truth” from a beautiful woman. It wasn’t about climate […]

Friday in the light

Well, that experiment of writing for a week did nothing to kill my inner critic. You know that guy? It’s the voice of the ego, telling you you’re shit and you shouldn’t try. The only thing that shuts the voice up is the act of doing. So here I am. On Tuesday I tried to […]

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 […]

I died a thousand times tonight

 Embrace your dark side This is what I read on FB the other day. Embrace my dark side? WTF?! It certainly sounds pretty kinky I must admit – but what if my dark side has less to do with a deep voice and a black cape and more to do with getting mad at a […]

the winds of change

Children of Mother Earth, listen up!  I watched this video the other day and I felt so sad. It is okay to feel sad though, I let myself – I didn’t feel angry I just felt hopeless. I love animals. I love trees. I love flowers and green living things. I love water. I love […]
