Reading Time: 6 minutes I stood in the corner of that locker bay, soft warm tears coursing down my face.
I used the a corner of the tiny towel to dab my eyes and took the deepest breath of my adult life.

The kind of bottom-of-your-lungs blasting gulp that I last took as a newborn, freshly emerged and just as naked.Read More
Reading Time: 6 minutes Will anxiety and knee-jerk reaction serve us at this time? Nope – even though it feels ‘natural’ to give in to anxiety and alarm.
What will serve us instead is a blend of connectedness (we’re all in this together), strategic wisdom (long-term planning), thinking at a deeper level (who are we really, and who do we want to be?), and a willingness to contemplate some radical new solutions – all backed up by our determination to create something with robust and solid foundations.Read More

Reading Time: 4 minutes Say you’re worried that someone thinks something about you that makes you uncomfortable. Instead of trying to run away from your anxiety, instead, ask what is this situation telling me? And what it’s telling you is that this person’s opinion of you matters to you. But why does it matter? It matters because you want to be liked and accepted. Why do you want to be accepted? Because it feels scary not to be. Will you be ok, even if someone doesn’t like you? What if it is about them and not you? From there, after you’ve answered your own questions and realized why the opinion matters so much, then you can decide maybe you don’t want to care. Maybe if they like you, you still won’t be safe.Read More
Reading Time: 5 minutes Everyone gets excited about a Solstice (and they’re right to do so), but for me there’s something extra special about an Equinox.
Derived from the Latin for ‘equal night’, the Equinox is the moment when Earth sits perfectly balanced on its axis – not ‘leaning’ one way or the other, but at the exact correct angle so that the Sun moves directly overhead along the Equator.Read More
Reading Time: 4 minutes I don’t expect you to not be fat phobic. That would be ridiculous. Because we live in a world where it is pervasive and it is woven into the fabric of our existence. It is in my being too. There are moments, still, when I think that that being thin would be THE ANSWER. I don’t pretend otherwise. But I know that line of thinking is a lie. I know that there are places within me that have learned to embody the Self-hatred as a survival and protective mechanism.Read More
