Beyond appearance

Living in in Hong Kong taught me a lot about appearance. What d’you think about appearance? How does it work in your life? In Hong Kong where appearance was important, I always made sure that my toes were painted, my hair high-lighted, bikini line waxed

Accepting difference

Like leaves on a tree, we’re all different, and, at the same time, we each contribute to the whole. Trees have different meanings for different cultures, yet commonly symbolise strength and growth, uniqueness, harmony and balance, rebirth and renewal…and the energy is peaceful. Why then

Beauty and colour

As we look back over 2020, my goodness what a year it’s been! With so many unexpected events, it’s been challenging for each of us in many different ways – individually and collectively. How did you find a sense of stability? What is your perception

Acceptance and peace

Two years ago I wrote about how to find peace when it feels like your world has been turned upside down. Then the focus was on personal change and the turmoil that can come, for example, through relocation, the end of a relationship, ill health,

A different Christmas

This Christmas is going to be different! Often defined by tradition, with the prospect of not having that this year, it’s important to accept how things are, to be realistic … and adapt. We don’t want to put others at risk so this is truly

Finding resilience – this Christmas

Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year… A time of coming together, sharing food with family and friends, twinkling lights, candles, singing carols…a time of joy. For many, however, the reality is… a time of dread, one of the most challenging times of the

Look me in the eye.

The other week I attended a workshop designed to help understand and support children with ‘disabilities’. As a mum with a daughter diagnosed as having Asperger’s Syndrome, as a volunteer for Riding for the Disabled, for me ‘disability’ is not something to be fixed, it’s

Courage to be you

As a child, I was small and skinny. I wore National Health Service glasses – pink plastic ones. I was teased horribly and felt ugly. I felt different, alone. I was told I was sensitive. I never saw myself as being strong or courageous. Yet,

Crossing the bridge

With everything that’s happening in the world at the moment – the conflict, the pandemic, climate change, political upheaval, terrorism – it’s clear that we’re being given a good shake and the universe is asking us to wake up, look at how we’re living, what’s

Finding resilience

Navigating change is never smooth. We can feel decidedly wobbly, think that we’ll never survive alone, sometimes feel downright helpless. And yet…it’s through change that we find our resilience, learn to be creative and find ways to do things differently. When you think about resilience…

Time to emerge and bloom?

When you look at your life, how would you describe your story so far? Is it one of fun and adventure, or, are you someone who likes to feel comfortable? What have been the greatest moments; what have been your struggles? If you’re content with

Who in the world am I?

“Who in the world am I?”, asked Alice in her quest for identity. On the surface, a story that is considered by some to be about fun and nonsense, underneath a deeper meaning about growth and expansion. “Who am I?” – a great question for us

How do you see yourself?

Freedom. We’re hearing lots of conversation around the world about the way our governments are addressing the Covid pandemic. Some see the measures taken as restricting individual freedom, others see them as being for the collective good and accept that we need to take care

How comfortable are you speaking up?

We’ve talked in recent weeks about the world being turned upside down and the opportunity to create a better world, imagining what we’d like to see. Of course, we need to look at how we would like to change and who we would like to

What is the one gift…

If there is one gift that you could give to the world at this time, what might it be? What quality do you feel would make a difference? Perhaps…peace of mind, kindness, passion, self- acceptance, integrity, inner joy, or, something else? Making a new start,

“Let us love one another…”

Last week my mum passed. Having been in residential care for almost four years, she finally let go. Covid restrictions meant that yesterday our family came together to celebrate who she was in a different way. Mum’s funeral was not quite as planned! We came
