Shedding relationships that are not working.

Happy Wednesday! Remember that conversation I told you Liz and I were having on shedding relationships that fail to serve? I’ve got it here for you. It’s right below. Hope you enjoy it and if you have any questions feel free to get in touch. You can get in touch with Liz via her site, the Self Discovery Diva. Let her know you liked the talk or you’d like to work with her. You can also post your comments below – PS: I know I love shiny and my eyes were looking crazy, no comment on that necessary 🙂 Just let me know if you found value in the conversation and if you’d welcome more content like that in the future.

Journaling workshop review + more

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’ve been keeping rather busy lately, working on my first workshop on writing + deep soul journaling. Planning a workshop is harder that it looks. So many things need to be considered especially for a workshop of this nature. I didn’t realize just how little things make a big difference when you want to set the right tone and ambience, important stuff when you want people to feel they can relax, unwind and let words flow. So Saturday was the big day and four amazing women braved the inclement whether to show up. Sometimes, just showing up is powerful in itself. It means that I’m willing to make the extra step. The fact that they still came in spite of all the rain really did something for me and lifted my spirit. We had a good time, wrote in our journals, drank copious cups of tea and…

What to do with your writing

The words you pen in your journal is for you. Only you. Your journal is a space for you to be honest with yourself. It is a place to write your truth, however it appears to you, and it is a place for you to be honest, open and candid with yourself. After you let out your thoughts and feelings out on paper, you may be wondering what to do with it. You can do two things really, keep it or discard it. My personal preference is to keep my writing. I write about everything that’s on my heart and mind, my highs my lows, fears, plans – you get it, everything. And I find that whenever I go back to old journals, I’m able to get a snapshot as to what was happening in my life at the time and I get to see how my thoughts and feelings have…

Getting ready to write

Taking the time to prepare for writing goes a long way in ensuring that you actually get some writing done. Here’s a list of things you want to consider before you put pen on paper. I think it is a great process that will help you establish an enriching writing practice. FIND THE RIGHT PLACE You want a spot that is comfortable with minimal to no distractions. This allows you to get into the process and write. I sometimes do my deepest writing in bed or at the breakfast bar in my kitchen. Feel free to experiment with various location in and around your home as sometimes the most obvious places aren’t necessarily the best. ESTABLISH THE RIGHT TIME You know your schedule and your rhythm. Look at what your days looks like and pick a time that will allow you to write with consistency and without interruptions. Look at the…

Be brave and bold. Sometimes the world needs it.

It’s funny how God has a way of sending you confirmation and encouragement when your resolve may be wavering. My mind is in overdrive making it hard for me to sleep. Doubts and relentless thoughts making it hard for me to get some shut eye for any long time. I got up and could not go back to bed, turned on the computer and then I saw Liz’s email with a video and I opened it up. With the exception of my blogs, I’ve been offline for a bit in one part due to tech woes (think 4 computers since the start of the year) and other part working on my first workshop that drops on the 4th July. The workshop is about journaling, personal story telling and writing to heal. For me, this stuff is important. If I didn’t have pen, paper and the ability to express everything I was carrying deep…
