Is It True? Is It Kind? Is It Necessary?

So today, I would like to take this opportunity to openly express my dislike for this new "dislike" button that is soon to potentially be added to our options of how we choose to interact on the biggest social media site - "Facebook".

"You Can Have It All - Just Not All at Once."

If what you truly want in life is balance, tranquility, and peace - set about making that happen for you. Stop pointing the finger. Stop bitching about it. Stop blaming everyone else, and allow yourself to make the choice once and for all.

A Letter to My Little Sister

You are my blood. My family. My friend. As I am yours. And it is a huge honour that you chose ME to stand beside you on your wedding day.

Excess Baggage

By having a lighter load, you are able to get to where you need to go much faster. You have nothing additional weighing you down. It makes the journey that much easier. And you allow yourself the freedom to travel that much easier.

You've Got This...

All you have to do, is send your thoughts, and feelings out into the universe, and watch and see what happens. And not let fear of the unknown hold you in a place where you are afraid of every new thing that crosses your path.

Our First And Last Love...

Like Jean-Paul Sartre, the French Philosopher once said "If you are lonely when you're alone, you are in bad company". I truly believe that until you are content within your own company, you are always going to be attracting someone into your life that is lacking something in some way.

Daydreamer...

If we are always projecting, and reflecting, then the people we are surrounded by, should give us an indication of the type of love that surrounds us. Of what we put out into the universe, we get back.

The Missing Pieces of the Puzzle

If you're missing the pieces from your own "life puzzle", you can never expect to take those pieces from someone else's. Whose puzzle looks very, very different from your own. If you do, You'll always be searching for that "missing piece". Tirelessly searching. And often fruitlessly.

Is 'One' the Loneliest Number?

I had a conversation the other night with a gentleman in his 50's, who also admitted something similar. That he suffers from "loneliness". I was so sad upon hearing this. Vulnerability always does that to me. Moves me in inexplicable ways. A lot of us get lonely at times, yet we are often too afraid, or too embarrassed to admit it.

My Heart, My Mind, and My Balls

I've taken off again like a gypsy. I am currently in a small town in Northern Thailand, called Pai, in Mae Hong Son province near the Myanmar border which lies along the Pai river, staying with my soul sister.

The Diamond Necklace Around Your Neck

It's taken a long time to learn to love myself. Your self-esteem, and your ego take quite a battering when you end a relationship. Particularly a marriage. You are judged by almost everyone, as a "divorced woman". You are feared and pitied all at once.

Whatever's Good For Your Soul? Do That

Today I was one of the many affected by the power outage at Sydney Airport. It all comes down to Mercury Retrograde you know....but I'm not going to start with that sort of shit in today's article... Yes, I was planning on leaving yet again.

Life Is a Long Lesson in Humility

I remember everything from conversations I've had, to outfits I've worn, to meals I've eaten. And I remember the things people have said to me. It's not that I harbour grudges. I don't. But like the saying goes, I never forget the way someone has made me feel.

Nothing Is Permanent But Change

Sometimes you can go on, feeling a certain way for the longest time, and then in an instant, everything changes. Something shifts within us. And suddenly, we can't even remember the way we used to feel. We only know how we feel now.

Practising an 'Attitude of Gratitude'

I think all of us have minor meltdowns over the most trivial things, and looking back on the shit I mentally complained about through the week, really made me slap myself, and think - I am so ungrateful sometimes.

A Little Compassion...

When did everyone become so mean anyway? We all have our secret sorrows. We all have our hidden hurts. And try to remember, that nobody really knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Going Into Your Shell

I have been venting my anger and sadness through the written word. I email my friend, and send her my unpublished articles. "No. You cannot publish that." She tells me. I become frustrated. "You are trapped in a loop." She goes on.

Like Attracts Like

Why would you want someone who is distant? Someone who shows no interest in you as a person? Who doesn't support and encourage your dreams and passions? Someone unavailable? Why even go there? It can only end in heartbreak. A lot of men are unavailable. They may be emotionally immature, just in it for a good time, or worse yet - married.

Blurred Lines

Can men and women ever be just friends? I wondered this out loud on Saturday night as I was sitting down to dinner with a girlfriend. "No" she told me, matter of factly. "No?" I asked. I was a little crushed. I love men as friends. In fact, sometimes I prefer their company over women's. They generally think from a logical place rather than an emotional one, and they are often the voice of reason.
