I’ve created topical resource pages to light the way & support you in showing up fully to life in every season. Each page represents a thread of my work and gathers together articles, interviews, resource recommendations, and my hard-fought wisdom & lived experience to help you live brave & whole.
You’re imperfect. Life is messy. Show up anyway. I’ll help you figure out how. xo
I’m no stranger to grief. I’ve tasted more than my share already, certainly far more than my friends. But child loss is something else altogether. Suicide loss adds another layer to the pain. Yet it is possible to live whole and brave even through the thick, terrible, wilds of grief. You (we) are strong enough to do this.
Tuning into the season we’re in can help us live gentler, slower and simpler lives. We become more attuned to and less fearful or resentful of the ebb and flow of life. We put down deeper, healthy roots of self-awareness and self-compassion that allow us to tilt and flex and remain rooted when the storms come.
When we acknowledge that life is messy, imperfect, and sometimes crushing but that our story isn’t done yet and we can keep writing, we’re more able to access the curiosity, vulnerability, and courage required to forge ahead through uncertainty. I bet you’re stronger & braver than you think.
Fear is a liar. We aren’t required to have it all together in order to share our gifts or do the work in the world to which we feel called. We can build a healthy stress mindset to help rob fear of its power. Showing up through fear – like all growth and becoming – requires practice. One stubborn step at a time.
Not one of us will get through life without tasting struggle or pain. And if we struggle at times with our mental health (as 25% of the population does), this is not an indicator of our value or worth – it’s simply part of being human in a messy world. Care for yourself like you matter. You do.
Don’t give up on happiness – while we can’t control all of our life circumstances, we can choose daily, intentional habits that help us build a full, beautiful life and we can glean from the 3 paths to happiness that Martin Seligman teaches about.
You do not have to live in judgment anymore – comparing yourself to others or trying to keep up or measure up. You do not have to live in shame simply because you’re human in a messy world. You’re not bad, broken, or wrong – you simply live in a world that’s not great at honouring diversity.
