What good is Intuition to us?
Intuition… we pretty much all have it, but we don’t always use it.
Intuition gets dismissed as a weak, feminine trait that can’t be trusted. If men follow their intuition, they call it “following their gut”, yet that is exactly what it is?
The skinny trend… going to any extreme is unhealthy… What anorexia taught me about recovery…
TRIGGER WARNING: This post talks about anorexia and self-harm.
4) The only person who was going to step in to save me, turned out to actually be myself!
The road to recovery and the road to becoming healthy is fundamentally ours to walk, sometimes alone, sometimes with support, but ultimately, we need to do it for ourselves!
Enjoy the freedom of being yourself, accepting that being seen a fool is just a part of it!
In a world where the image of being pulled together and perfect set an impossibly high bar, sometimes giving ourselves the freedom to just own who we are, let our hair down and stop worrying about being accepted is such a breath of fresh air!

The Universe sends us a trail of breadcrumbs to follow.
We need to pay attention to the trail of breadcrumbs that the universe sends us!
The universe doesn’t always send a large magnificent solution, that everyone would ooh and aah about, a sure sign of a miracle and of God’s love and benevolence.
The fact that he doesn’t often work that way isn’t a sign of our unworthiness!
We’re all a work in progress
Perfectionism is highly prized in the current fake world of social media, creating much added mental anguish for those of us who are highly self-critical. Separating ourselves…… Read more “We’re all a work in progress”
