Compassion for a Cockroach

A few weeks ago I witnessed a beautiful encounter of compassion between our three year old Ethan, 20 month old Huw and a cockroach that I thought others may enjoy hearing. On Friday morning, Ethan and Huw had woken up and we were taking the usual walk down a few stairs into the lounge when […]

Road to the Gold Coast World Triathlon Champs as a Mum

I recently represented team Australia in the ITU Age Group World Triathlon Championship Sprint distance event. I was happy to finish 37th in my age group in a time of 1hr16mins21sec.

Appreciation Versus Expectations: This Could Change Your Life

Whilst on holidays in Hawaii recently I read a quote on Instagram shared by Sunny Garcia by Tony Robbins: “Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant.” They say timing is everything and for me this really struck a chord. In Kona on the Big Island surrounded by the world’s […]

Positive attitude is a choice, what do you choose?

Are you a glass half full or a glass half empty person? During a recent week in Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountain region of Australia I reflected on this topic after a conversation with a friend. I believe every day we have a choice on how we show up. That choice is not always easy […]

Let’s unite and be thankful

As I write this commuting on the ferry into Sydney city this morning I feel a lump in my throat and eyes on the verge of tears as I think about the tragic events of the last 48 hours. I had a blog post to publish this week and didn’t feel right to post it […]
