It’s time to open wide the gates


Given the current climate challenge, I decided against ‘opening the floodgates’. However, there is something gloriously abundant about slowing down, being quiet and appreciating hope and joy. Especially when we become more connected with each other and this astonishingly beautiful earth we call home. We start to notice shifts. Our way of seeing stretches wide … Read more

What would an abundant you look like?


This may seem a strange question but bear with me. If we only ever approach who we are and what we can do from the premise that we are not enough and we need more, then our narrative is limited from the outset. What would happen if we swopped our storyline? And what would an … Read more

Feasting on colours and so much more


Bramble leaves are the first to change colour. I love the richness of the hue. It makes up for the months of being snagged by thorns! And here, in mid-September, we seem to be coming into an abundance. Yes, the glut of blackberries, many left for the birds and alpacas to munch. And the arrival … Read more

Are we waiting for the one, the right seed to plant? It can be tempting to wait for the perfect seed, the one that’s going to yield the most fruit and be the strongest version of itself. But this isn’t how nature works. Neither should we.

Yes, we are not in control


There I’ve said it. I know you know it, but it’s hard to acknowledge because it means letting go. Not just of the tough stuff that drains us to the last – and some, or the rough stuff that doesn’t fit well, which we know is meant for someone else anyway. But it’s also the … Read more

Natural abundance and a different mindset


Standing by the lakeside with the sun on my face and breeze on my cheeks, I watched dragonfly darting across the water. It’s days like these when the curtain is pulled back, and we get a glimpse of the sheer abundance of the world around us. Yes, I am aware that I have the privilege … Read more
