Where My Thoughts Lie

Art of Appreciation

Do you feel Happy and Abundant?

What does Happiness mean to you?

Appreciate the small things – They may just become the BIGGER things that make life feel good…

Take a look at my Happiness is and Thankful For pages, they are filled with the wonderful things in life.

Embracing Self Love

Did you know that Self Love takes on many forms? You may be familiar with some, like self-appreciation, self-worth,and self-esteem…

Being kind to yourself and treating yourself as you would your best friend is one way of showing yourself love.

Think about it for a moment…How many ways do you practise caring for yourself, and show yourself appreciation? Maybe, you are not sure how you would do that….Join us in our search to find and grow our Self Love during one of my beautiful and stunning retreats, or Weekend Workshops.

Embracing Colour

We know that colour has the power to affect mood and feelings. It helps create style and ambiance, and has a profound and beautiful effect in the natural world. Exploring our thoughts about colour and the effect colours have on our feelings and emotions can be empowering, can help lift our mood, and can help us feel good about ourselves, our life and the world around us. Learn more about how the colour that surrounds you, can help you feel more positive about your life in my Embracing Colour Pages, or Join me for one my artistic and practical Creative Workshops, or stunning Retreats set in beautiful and colourful locations around the world, where we will explore the presence of colour in our lives, and I will show you some of the techniques that I consciously and regularly use to focus positive thought and create good feelings throughout my day.

Writing to Heal My Heart

Explore inspirational and profound little nuggets and musings that share the value of gratitude and appreciation, love and positivity in our lives. Stories and snippets that map my journey to brighter days and happier thoughts, and the path to feeling good about myself, my life and my world.

Power of Positivity

Discover how powerful positive thoughts can be…By changing how you speak, and by focusing on feeling good, and noticing all the positive and good things around you – You can change how your view Your Self, Your Life, and the world around you – YOUR WORLD. Let me show you how to grow a positive mind-set and change your perspective allowing you find and see all the good and all the beauty that surrounds you everyday of your life.

Recognising Natural Beauty

The world is full of natural beauty with something for everyone to enjoy and appreciate. Beautiful landscapes. peaceful and colourful countryside, beautiful oceans and beaches, tranquil rivers and streams and dainty brooks, meadow flowers and trees, the night sky in all its twinkling glory; the list is endless. It’s all around us….At any moment in time, we only have to have to close our eyes and picture what we love about our world, feel it, sense it, see it – Our imagination has the power to whisk us away within the adventures of our mind.

I love my work-space; I love it’s freedom and informality.

I love that I can work in the garden, or my kitchen, or even at the beach, if I choose too. I can go to the Coffee Shop or the library, or the local park. I can sit by the river or the lake and work, enjoying the sunshine and the outdoor space, it’s so wonderful to look up at the sky above and the trees around me, so inspiring and so laid-back, yet I get so much more work done , and it is so fulfilling.I love my life!
