R U OK?

behappy_ruok21I don’t know how many of you know I suffer chronic pain from a workplace accident that happened in the coal mines 6yrs ago.

The pain is there all the time, it’s just the depth of pain that varies and today is not a good day. I woke in tears, allowing myself to cry my eyes out. You see I don’t share this with many people. I continue on each day because of my kids. I can have quite a few days like this and then a few where life is ok, and I’m able to keep moving forward knowing that one day hopefully the pain will just go away. See I won’t take Continue reading R U OK?

If Not Now… Then When??

fear-picWhen are you going to decide once and for all that you have had enough, and move on to living the life you long to live?

Are you sick and tired of living in fear; of making decisions based on what you’re worried might or might not happen as a result?

I have been speaking with a friend just recently who is going through some really tough times. He asked me when did you start to change and love who you are and how did you do this? I explained that after writing my book, things really started to change. The releasing of past hurts and pain. However it was well before this that my life started taking a different direction. After my work place accident I decided that I needed to look at me, the real person in the mirror, not the person who everyone else expected me to be…or my thoughts that they wanted me to be a certain way. Continue reading If Not Now… Then When??

When Everything Changes…

changes My goodness, what a year it has been so far. So many changes. In my last blog I wrote about being out in the country unknowing if this was where my youngest daughter and I were meant to be!

We were starting to settle in, accept that our time in the country is an experience we should enjoy… take the time to just be. Appreciate the fresh air, the uncomplicated lifestyle. Well God certainly likes to keep us on our toes and we are now back living on the Sunshine Coast. How did all this happen so quickly I hear you ask? But didn’t you just move…  Continue reading When Everything Changes…

So much has happened since I moved to the property…

 

Book Cover BR finalI decided after writing my book ‘Blonde Roots’ that I needed to have a change… a change of scenery perhaps. The book had taken so much out of me. Even though it was cathartic to write my journey triumphing over sexual, physical and mental abuse, to be able to release the hurts and the pains I had kept in for many years, I some how felt a little empty inside… as if by releasing all my past hurt and all the pain should of made me feel more alive and free. Well it did, and I am so happy that I released all of those past hurts… I feel like a new woman. By letting go I learnt to love myself. A love I now want to share with others. The thing is not knowing where to from here. How does one fill the hole… Continue reading So much has happened since I moved to the property…

Big Beast – Will Travel

IMG_1445So now with the decision made to go out west to my sister and her hubby’s 20,000 acre cattle property, I had to equip myself with a vehicle that would go the long haul… plus the property is a little difficult to get into… no bitumen road once inside the property gate… and my Mazda 6 wasn’t going to cut it… in actual fact it would have got ruined.

So I bought myself a 4×4, a Nissan Patrol… never owned a four wheel drive before. I was so excited to be able to get a really nice Continue reading Big Beast – Will Travel

Big Decisions Made

the-futureSo here I am… the past few weeks have been a time of reflection for me. After the launch of my book I had, what I can only explain as adrenalin drop off. The past twelve months of writing and getting my book to publication was an emotional road. So what I felt and as I wrote in my last blog was that it left me with a hole right in the middle of my gut… not literally 🙂 but this gaping hole is there and it put me into a state of confusion… What do I do now? What is in store for me? Where do I want to be and What can I do to move forward…  Continue reading Big Decisions Made

Where To From Here?

nw-bookcoversquare-01When I was writing my book, there were so many emotions that came up… after not sharing my hurts and pain with others I found that keeping them all inside for so long, was not the best thing I could have done. I needed to share them and deal with them at the time…

I allowed the pain and hurt to surface, and then dealt with it somehow, and at the time… it was mostly tears… once the book (Blonde Roots) was released it was amazing how the weight lifted from my whole body… but now it seems I feel Continue reading Where To From Here?
