2017 – the year we will love ourselves more

There certainly is a lot of noise around this year, everywhere I turn people are asking us to reflect, set goals and turn to 2017. And whilst I do believe reflection is important so is just being, taking a deep breath and not giving opportunity for our inner critical voice to take over. I’m the first to agree; it’s been a full on year, right? It certainly wasn’t the year I was expecting, but looking back now, I can see it was exactly the year I was MEANT to have. It was the year I needed. Whilst I welcomed the safe

Mums are the buttons of the world!

Mother’s day. It’s odd really that it takes a dedicated day to stop and truly reflect on what is around us every day…Mothers.

Go on, love yourself!

Buddha tells us to love ourselves first because we cannot give to others what we do not already have. Interestingly enough when we stop to explore, self-love what actually rises for most of us. Questioning how much we love ourselves and understanding how we fill up our cup of self-love is an interesting exercise. For most of us even stopping to think about how much we love ourselves, stirs deep emotions and often self-judgment flows right in. Self-love is important to living well. It influences who you pick for a mate, the image you project at work and how you cope with
