It got lighter this week…and I don’t just mean the weather!
On Tuesday a conversation with another that made a difference.
The power of telling the truth to yourself while being witnessed by another.🙏🏼
Yearnings that I’ve been telling myself I’ll tend to when I’m older / got more experience / more money / retired!
A numbers years ago I was gathered in circle (in person!!) with five women friends.
As part of the completion, we each made a promise to ourselves.
I came across mine recently and was struck by how timeless it is.
March is over and I am glad. A difficult month. Like a snake shedding its skin: uncomfortable and energy sapping.
April is here. A hope cocktail. Cold, windy days: blowing away any last vestiges of winter. Warm days and wet days: fuelling new growth.
Mary Oliver captured this time beautifully in her poem, Spring.
I’m not quite at the stage of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s character in Fleabag, but I do have an Obama crush.😊
I’ve recently finished reading Michelle Obama’s autobiography, Become, which has put the meat on the bones of said attraction.
Here’s 3 of the (many!) things I loved about it which shine a light and remind all of us that we matter.
Tomorrow is Spring Equinox, one of the two points in the seasonal calendar when light and dark are in balance. The darkness holds the potential of our ideas and plans for the year ahead, just like the bulbs and seeds beneath the surface of the ground. The light, which increases from now on, helps them to grow and flourish.
We can embrace this potent energy and consider what we would like to bring back in to balance in our own life. Is there something you’d like to grow which would create more balance in your life? ⚖️
I am going through the workbook of A Course In Miracles this year. My way of tending to my spiritual soil.
Wednesday’s entry was titled, My happiness and my function are one.
I was particularly intrigued by this idea. I made a list of when I have felt happy and was surprised by what this has shown me.
I’ve been social media-lite for about 18 months now. Partly a choice about where to allocate my precious heartbeats and also an underlying icky feeling.
I had a couple of instances during the last few months when I did make a foray. On both occasions I woke up the next day with a social media hangover.
Right now, I am in an enquiry: how to show up, connect and make a difference without using social?🤔

I saw masses of green bluebell shoots poking up in the woods this morning plus we’ve had a week of fair weather. Spring is definitely coming…isn’t it?!
I can’t help noticing the parallels with this week’s announcement here in the UK for a roadmap out of lockdown.
Regardless of how things unfold, things are changing (again!) from 8th March. As someone who works with women in transition, one thing I know is that transitions are icky!
I’ve created a very special package to help YOU navigate the months ahead.
Something happens in mid-February. The light increases from now and with it the promise of spring to come.
Our gardening calendar says it’s time to start seed sowing. Yay!😀
As in the garden so in life.
I am not a dieter per se. I am however an occasional detoxer. In the past it would be spring and autumn, around the time of the Equinoxes. These days, it’s when I feel the need. Lately I’ve felt the need!
