Buying Back My Own Soul

I’ve sold my soul to so many people, for so many things. Primary I’ve sold my soul to work…for a lot of empty promises and anxiety. I’ve sold my soul to people who don’t care about me, I’ve sold my soul to my addictions, I’ve sold my soul to obligations and lies, to imposter syndrome…

The Inconsequential

I feel that I spend most of my life living on the surface of a very deep ocean. My conversations and daily habits revolve around physical and temporary things. My life is so easily consumed by the unanswered email, the unwatched movie, the unexplored internet, the inconsequential. And that’s the trick life plays on us….

I Need To Stop Rescuing My Job

I like to wake up early each day so I can get the most out of my mornings. This morning I woke up at 5:50am with the sole purpose of strengthening my inner world. I’d planned to spend the morning journaling, deep breathing, stretching my body and refocusing my mind for the week. Instead I found…

The Ruins + The Garden

I am learning about forgiveness. About the unsexy side of inner peace and healing. Forgiveness is a long game. There’s no instant relief or flair of happy emotions. It’s the epitome of life’s unfairness. A crime was committed, an offence occurred and my raw heart has called for justice and judgement. I want a judge…

Hungry for a Life Flooded with Gratitude

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and…

Life in The Black and Red

There’s this two dimensional approach to life that I’ve watched and I’ve fallen into and I’ve wanted to escape. The best way I can describe it is in accounting terms. In accounting when you’re in profit you’re ‘in the black’ and then you’re making a loss you’re ‘in the red’. Our lives become this two-step…
