My Happy 100

Last year, I changed my life. A lot. With a list. Another new year arrived, and yet another set of New Year Resolutions. Feeling uninspired and unmotivated and virtually ready to fail again I decided to do things differently. I had been feeling for a while, that life was just so busy. Running a [...]

How I went from a self destructive bulimic to a marathon runner

I DID IT!!!  I actually freaking did it!  I ran 42km last Saturday for the first time in my entire  life!  My legs ran me all that distance, all the way!  I still cannot believe I actually did it.  I remember when I was a little girl, watching a marathon thinking OMG how could people [...]

Breaking the Silence on Silence – What it is REALLY like to go silent for 3 days.

Last Thursday afternoon, my friend, Carin and I set off to the Coramandel for three nights. This was not a typical “girly” weekend. No this was one where we were to be in silence for three full days and two nights. Earlier on this year, I had put Silent Retreat onto my Happy 100 List, [...]

Who REALLY benefits from our self care?

It is all too easy  to wake up in the morning and rush out of bed only to find yourself  zapping  around at 100 miles an hour, getting everything organized for the day ahead. It is like a hurricane of packing school lunches, looking for lost socks, feeding the animals, walking the dog, messaging our [...]
