My guys not much of a writer or sharer of 'personal stuff' (he'd much rather put a brave face on, crack a smile, a laugh or a joke), yet today he wrote this...
A story of his I never would have told yet I'm proud he shared, because you never know who's (quietly) going through their own stuff, with their own brave face on.Read More
You know sometimes you just feel all foggy/funky/what-the-heck-should-I-do-with-my-life about stuff... And while you're not exactly happy with where you are right now, you're also not entirely sure if you know what you really do want next..?Read More
Yesterday went a little like this...
5AM // Spot a text from my guy (who was 'sleeping' next door for the night) sent 30 minutes before. A photo of him looking beyond tired/stressed/wondering what the heck to do with himself.
Go next door, give him a cuddle. Remind him he's loved and agree this is the unfairest thing in the whole world, because it really is. So far as much as he's needed/wanted to, he's not slept. It's the pain. Always the pain.Read More
Yesterday my guy had good intentions of getting up early and smashing his way through a whole bunch of work.
The getting up early part was done, but then he ended up not so well by the afternoon so he spent it in the bathroom (while replying to what emails he could).Read More
Last year Julia Jackson wrote her first book, Love Your Body, The 7 Day Challenge to Love Your Food, Your Body and Your Life.Read More
To say "I had the BEST TIME EVER..." working with the girls over at Project Love would be a great big understatement. They were a blast, and from it, we created this...Read More
Last week I had a coaching call with a client.
It was a one off call (something I don't normally do). She was struggling with how to move her business forward, with how to slot all the pieces into place and actually launch it.Read More
3 years ago I wrote a post, the first about me and my guy and his accident.
I was *SO* nervous hitting publish. How I'd be seen, how he'd react.
Yet that post opened the doors to the biggest wave of kindness and love and support I've ever received, and in a way, that wave saved me, and him.Read More
Yesterday I asked myself a question...
“What would you do it you felt truly supported?”Read More
I see a lot of Self Care lists floating around, mostly filled with ideas like...
Going for a walk.
Drinking a green smoothie.
Having a bubble bath.Read More
I want to love my body again.
I can barely look at it right now, and what I've done to it.
After years of feeling ashamed of how I looked - larger and softer than felt natural for my frame, I started to love me, to take care of me, eating good foods (mindfully) and finding exercise I loved.
It saw me find a body I loved too - one that finally felt like 'me'.Read More
Lately, I've had this overwhelming feeling to rest.
To slow down. To breathe a little deeper. To do the things that make me feel nourished and whole (even more that normal). To heal.Read More
A few years ago I had THE MOST HORRIFIC flight to Thailand.
I was flying from the UK, and the trip should have taken 13 hours (long enough), but oh no, this particular (and I'm feeling the need to repeat - HORRIFIC) flight took 3 WHOLE DAYS.
I feel awkward telling people I'm a Designer, because I'm not qualified enough. You see, I didn't go to uni so I'm completely self taught.
I feel like a fraud telling people I'm Life Coach (so I often don't...), because right now I feel like don't have enough clients to say that.Read More
I have a philosophy... Do it with love (or not at all).
If I make something, I want every single person that purchases it, to feel the love and care it's been made with. For example, last summer I made two tee's...Read More
To be the same person you were last year, last month, or even five minutes ago.
To answer every email the second they come in. Or even on the same day. Or even, ever.
To say yes when you want to say no.Read More
