    Lie Detection – A Superpower

    What’s one of the worst things we can experience? Being lied to. To our faces!!! That breach of trust cuts most of us deeply, it is such a horrible thing to feel that someone cannot for whatever reason be honest. Oh, I know we all lie at times but mostly they’re harmless enough – little white lies. “The dog ate my homework” “I had a dodgy curry last night so I can’t come into work” “No, I didn’t take the last cookie” “I can’t go out tonight, I’ve got a headache” People mostly lie to protect themselves or others and most aren’t going to result¬†in the end of the world…

    Learning how to People Again

    One of the hardest things I face is having to “people” with others. I think the fear of not being understood and others thinking I’m weird is what holds me back so the easiest thing for me to do is limit my time with them. The problem with that is you miss out on having some great interactions at times so I’ve decided I want to learn how to “people” again.

I think we can all agree that the media has a lot to do with our skewed idea of what we should look like and sadly it brainwashes far too many people. This creates such a vicious cycle. It also creates a lot of angst in those that society deems average or worse. When is this bullshit going to change? I’ve been thinking on and off about this for a while and I’ve got a couple of points I want to make. First Point. Women of a certain age. TBH this could cover women of any…

    Life Can be Cruel

    We all have bills. I get that. We all have unexpected costs that pop up unexpectedly. I get that. I’m not the only person this happens to. I get it!!! Really I do. But at the moment I feel like I can’t catch a break. We have to move, our lease runs out in a few weeks and the house has been sold and the new owner wants to move in (as is her right). So, we are facing an extra financial burden. To move, we still need to keep paying rent here, plus come up with bond for a new place $1600, two weeks rent in advance $800, removalists…

    Inspire Me to Inspire You

    I find inspiration for my many creative pursuits anywhere and everywhere. Sometimes nature will inspire me, reading or hearing something may get me pondering life’s big questions or a person will inspire me with their own creativity or journey in life. One of the inspirations for this blog came by way of my friend’s daughter, Amber. Such a creative soul who can turn her hand to many things with seeming ease, she has a beautiful soul and walks gently on the earth. Amber is on an amazing journey of healing and growth and started a blog to share her story, insights, and positivity with whoever comes across it. I read…
