Why am I afraid to breathe

Three weeks ago, I was flat on my back during my weekly Pilates class, trying to breathe into my back.  Pilates has surprised me in many ways since I started in early 2021. It is foundational. In many ways, I liken the practice of Pilates on the body to the practice of mindfulness on the […]

The best day of my life

Today was the best day of my life!  Actually, no. That’s a lie. Today was a good day, not the best, but pretty damm good. 8/10.  But the reason why today stands out for me is not because good things happened. In fact, many objectively bad things happened.  Nope. Today stands out as a good […]

Am I okay?

Oh universe, you wily trickster

This week something crazy occurred to me. Like, mind-bending, the universe is a trickster, cuckoo-crazy. I want to share it with you. But first, the context part. Last year I shared a very vulnerable story on Instagram. I titled it 2022 and kept it in my highlights reel if you want the full backstory. It […]

More contrived nonsense ;)

Last fortnight when I sent out my very first email, I shared that I would be writing from the heart, not overthinking or planning my emails and that I would be writing without selling anything as I’m not currently in business. I had incredible feedback, thank you. The excitement I felt by conversing with so […]

What does pesto have to do with spirituality?

What does pesto have to do with spirituality? Already the memory has faded. What felt at the time like the most intense experience of my life has become a mere glimmer of what it was. This blog post will be my attempt to recreate it. I’ve wanted to tell this story properly since it happened […]
