Kindness

Do you consider yourself a kind person? Kindness; “The quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate”. Seems simple enough to say that we are kind, a lot of us would like to think we are kind as much as we would like to think that others afford that attribute to our personality as well. Kindness…

Life is like the seasons…

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how life is like the seasons. We go through happy days; full of sunshine and light, where things seem to flow a little easier, people are drawn to us naturally, and well, it’s just a little lighter and more summery.  

Unnatural…

If you find it hard to juggle it all and look good doing it, this one is for you! 

For the last couple of weeks, I feel like I’ve been running a marathon, each and every day. Some days it’s a sprint to get the most critical things finished. Some days it just feels like I’m falling further and further behind, I’m chasing my tail, and I’m a little hamster on the wheel of life, churning around and around. And the thing about having a lot on your plate is that the harder you work, the less you seem to achieve! 

Waiting for the river to flow…

Creating content is something I love – Light, textures, place all tie into to creating gorgeous photos and content, and I also love to write. But as any creative would know there are many times, weeks or season when creativity doesn’t come… 

Manage yourself, Master your life

Managing yourself and your expectations of what you think you should be doing and what you are actually capable of doing is an interesting learning in life. When we are Kid’s we are managed by our parents and told when you go to bed, to eat our veggies and to rest when we are stressed.

I have been struggling to reconcile something recently and that is the end of a friendship that ended before I was ready for it too. Sometimes things end, that’s life and sometimes we drift apart from each other in friendships, we go down different paths and have different life goals, but sometimes the end of…

We were born to be real, not perfect

The search for perfection is like searching for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… It’s something that will never come because when you seek perfection you just keep chasing one goal after another. Once we achieve one goal we just set the bar higher.. raising the goal, raising the expectation. 

Up and down, Oh Ho Hum

Somedays you just have to laugh life right in the face don’t you… Today is one of those days for me, it started out fabulous, two wonderful clients signed off on big bodies of work, Hurrah. Happy days. And then I jumped into my car after a meeting and ran into a bollard!!! Silly, silly,…

The little things are the big things

I never used to be what I would now call as present in my life. I used to always be planning for the future, preparing for a rainy day, trying to control my life and I’ve had to learn probably in one of the hardest ways that we really only have the here and now. 

Small movement is better than no movement

The thought of getting started on something can often be the hardest part of making your dreams happen, so many people often give up before they even start. We can be paralysed by the fear of actually getting started, worried about what others might think or not being clear on the outcome so we instead…
