Being the Example

Uncategorized Jul 11, 2023

I’m big on reflecting and as I’ve been doing so over the last few weeks, I must admit that I may be at capacity. It’s possible I’ve said yes to a few too many things (which I don’t necessarily like to admit because I tend to have the view that I have boundless energy and unlimited time).

Currently, I’m doing 50+ client sessions/month, managing the chats for a variety of calls, ghostwriting a book, editing another book, writing my weekly blog, doing the occasional BEST session (Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique), and teaching online yoga. 

On the homefront, my husband and kids are on holiday and so there’s far less alone time and a big adjustment. 

My personal devotion to my well-being means that I get on the yoga mat every day for at least 5 sun salutations, go for a walk, meditate, do my daily rituals and make most of our meals from scratch. 

All that to tell you that I’m going to lead by example and take this week off from my full-fledged blog. We’re going camping in a couple of days so that adds preparations to the schedule. A giant tent has just been set up in the backyard so I’m going to give it a try.

It can be challenging to let go of high expectations for oneself and so that’s what I’m doing today. I’m cutting myself some slack and giving myself a little breathing room because… I’m in charge! What a concept.

Hopefully, this is helpful (if somewhat brief - and who knows… maybe you prefer brief-).  

May you have a week where you, too, can perhaps let go of some sky-high standards  (if that’s a thing for you) and give yourself a little breathing space.

With a big ol’ bucket of love and capacious courage,

Taking a break when needed! The end.


You know how some children’s music can make you want to poke your eyes out? This song is the opposite of that (so I guess it makes you want to keep your eyes in…)

I LOVE this song. It’s by a lovely artist named Billy Jonas and it’s such a great reminder of connecting with your divinity, being open and surrendering. 

It’s called Hollow Bamboo and it doesn’t sound like a children’s song at all, except there are some angelic children’s voices at times.
