It was late on a Friday night and the frustration was back again! My husband and I had been in this cycle for quite some time where life was blissfully happy, but then we would reach a roadblock! It was like a memory from my childhood, where I used to love riding my pink bike down the really steep hill, the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the exhilaration of freedom, no brakes and then suddenly I would reach the bottom of the hill and everything plateaued! I was too aware, not to know that something needed to change and that not listening to our emotions, would be like not watering our much- loved herbs for a month! My husband and I leaned into our emotions and the awareness that opened up as a result was to live separately for a month! I would love to think that we were very cool, calm and collected, however there was resistance and not just a little bit! Who was I going to call out for if there was a particularly, messy, smelly nappy to clean from our son?!

My husband decided to book a secluded camping spot for the month and our hearts opened up to the possibility of what would unfold! He made a choice to remove all distractions (Facebook etc) and eat a plant based diet for the month. What unfolded was beyond what we could have imagined! The gift of space, really enabled us both to connect even more deeply with our higher selves! I received a huge surprise the second week in when a text from my husband said, ‘Letter of Resignation sent’ to school! He had made the choice to resign and heed Helen Keller’s wise words, “Life’s either a daring adventure or nothing”!

My month gave me a lot of growth in that I opened up my creativity more than ever before and of course grew an even greater respect for the amazing, single parents out there! The greatest gift of all though was space – that is what enabled us to independently delve deeply into ourselves and open up to an even far greater possibility – that we could love each other and ourselves even more deeply. There is no safety in loving wholeheartedly and deeply – anything can happen, but it is so fulfilling! The Emotionally Happy Home® system is one that enables everyone to become aware of what their emotions are saying and follow a path of growth!

Joy is in exploring different forms of play!! I'm definitely a believer in play fuelling one's creations, vitality and creativity. One of our favourite forms of play as a family are nature walks - the joy is in exploring a new mountain, a different walk and new environment. We always return home energised and rejuvenated! Dr Stuart Brown (author of Play: How it shapes the brain, Opens the imagination and Invigorates the Soul) explains that 'Life without play is a grinding, mechanical existence organised around doing the things necessary for survival. Play is the stick that stirs the drink. It is the basis of all art, games, books, sports, movies, fashion, fun and wonder. Play is the vital essence of life. It is what makes life lively.' Happy playing this weekend fabulous friends!! Sending you lots of love and joy xx 


Dreams are so, so, so important!! However, I know at times, I have used our son as an excuse not to follow my dreams. I've run a story that, 'he needs me' and all my energy must go toward giving to him. I know in my being that the greatest gift I can give him is to share my dreams and my creativity. To model what it looks like to create for myself and to feel passionate about my dreams!! To show him that he doesn't need me to create his dreams for him, that he is a powerful creator and has the support of the universe, not just his family. I know that life will support us if we are willing to let go of our expectations on how it 'should' support us. My greatest growth and learnings have been experienced through my past health challenges and they have, if anything created a greater determination to create my heart's deepest desires. I feel that joy is in the dreaming and freeing ourselves and our children from the expectation that they are responsible for our creations and we are responsible for theirs. Sending you heaps of joy and love xx
