“Love yourself enough to say no to others’ demands on your time and energy” – Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Cards
This is usually what runs through my head when I’m asked to do something that I don’t really want to do:
“Aww crap, I really don’t want to do that.”
“But If I say no, they won’t think I’m a nice person …”
“But I really don’t feel like doing this …”
“Damn it, I’ll just do it. Grr.”
What’s that? You too!Read More

Comparison is stifling. It stops us dead in our tracks, drains us of our energy in an instant, and keeps us separate from those around us. It makes us feel small and unworthy and hopeless. Even worse, it puts our dreams way out there; piling the success of others up around us tends to make us feels as though there’s still many a mountain to climb.Read More
I realised something a little while ago: It’s not lack of information that causes us to make poor choices for ourselves. It’s not lack of knowledge that makes us devour an entire tub of ice cream while watching Gossip Girl on a Friday night. And I don’t know about you, but I’ve never actually thought I was doing my health a favour by downing two bottles on wine. No, it’s certainly not lack of knowledge that causes us to do these things. It’s lack of support, lack of guidance, lack of accountability, and the big one – lack of self love.
It was this realisation that led me to create my coaching program, The Lifestyle Transformation Guide, and it’s going deeper into this realisation that has led me to making one very important addition to the program: monthly coaching calls.

For the past three years (and actually a whole lot longer before that too) it’s felt like the dictating themes of my life have been structure, discipline and healing. Those themes served me then, being what was needed to initiate my complete lifestyle transformation, but I feel like I’ve now outgrown them. In fact, at the moment I feel as though structure is one theme that will work against me if I don’t let go of it to a certain extent. My body is craving freedom. It’s craving the unbounded bliss that ricochets from pure, unrestricted fun.Read More
Dr Dain Heer is a former chiropractor, international speaker, author of the book Being You, Changing The World, and one of the most gorgeous souls I’ve met. I had the absolute privilege of meeting up with Dain while he was on the Sunshine Coast recently to chat about happiness, healing, authenticity and his vision of a world free of judgement.Read More
I don’t know about you, but this guest post from Rachel MacDonald made me realise that I don’t spend nearly enough time celebrating my achievements. I acknowledge them briefly, but I’m usually too focused on moving on to the next goal on my list without pausing to give the previous one the commemorative space it deserves. So, that’s what I’m doing. Before I dive deep into mapping out what I want to create for myself in 2013, I want to take the opportunity of this blog to publicly celebrate the lessons I’ve learnt and the goals I’ve kicked over the past year.Read More

In my previous blog post, I spoke about how many people would find 2012, 2013 and beyond turbulent. They would find the rate and pace of change frightening and would fearfully resist the ‘great shift.’
When I ‘saw’ in 2006 what was to come in 2012, I knew that not changing yourself and your life was not an option.

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to acceptance lately. I’ve been doing more yoga than usual, and while I love it, moving my body into downward dogs and chaturangas and other poses that call for hands to be pressed flat into the ground, automatically makes me wish that my left hand would go back to normal.Read More
GUEST POST BY CONNIE CHAPMAN.
I recently made a commitment to myself to live completely authentically. When I made this decision, I knew within my heart that it was time to shed anything and everything that was not in line with who I felt I truly was. All I wanted was to just be me, and to live my life as I had always dreamed.Read More
