After almost 5 months in New Zealand I’d forgotten why until I saw this artwork and then I remembered why I love just because …

In Melbourne where I am most safe and feel most comfortable, it’s easy to be at peace.

Being at peace, accepting and non-judgemental is really difficult so now I need to learn to be in a state of surrender …. accepting untenable things as if I chose them and allowing all the negative emotions to dissipate. Thus enabling wisdom to prevail and to remind me the problem exists only in my mind,Continue reading “In Melbourne where I am most safe and feel most comfortable, it’s easy to be at peace.”

If I had a dollar for every excuse I made or heard I’d make Bill Gates look like a pauper

Be the minority that loves every moment like its the most precious thing in the world!

Time to appreciate what we no longer have is what we want when people are gone, we’re away from home, an event is over or we’re facing our own mortality.

I used to waste a lot of time thinking about useless nonsense, feeling persecuted, resenting and loathing the very things I wish I could have back. Appreciate everything you do with love, even your mistakes and the mistakes of others, living each moment as if it’s your last because in time, it will be.

CoVID19 provided an opportunity for the world to stop fighting amongst ourselves and value each other.

Unprecedented cooperation and goodwill has caused humanity to unite as one … let’s make that our primary focus and take the opportunity to deconstruct weapons, persecution, racism, prejudice and fear …. let’s invest in humanity!

Currently I’m in “Isolation” but I’m not isolated …

People can find a million reasons to separate themselves from other people …. bridge the gap because we need to stay connected, even in isolation 🤔

When my sons’ father had a heart attack 5 years ago my 13 year old fell apart and I told him to pull his shit together and fall apart afterwards.

Two and a half weeks after my brother’s accident, this is me invoking my right to fall apart.

Weddings, accidents, emergencies, disasters and funerals should not be the only reason to connect! Do it just because 🥰

It took my brother Atene’s accident to bring us together and for me to communicate with my family …… I’ve spent the past 2 weeks doing way I should’ve always done – taken time for people I love 😍
