Follow your bliss

I managed to squeeze in some fiction reading in the break between Christmas and new year. I wanted to catch up on some classics and one of the stories was a Leo Tolstoy piece - The Death of Ivan Illyich.  If you have never read or heard of this, it’s quite a sad story...

Smile on the inside

As I write this post, I’m luxury camping in a tent, relaxing on a queen bed and looking out across a lush canopy of huge, ancient gum trees. The forest is circling the edge of a winding river. The exquisite sound of the Australian bush and its choraling birds are a...

Pause. Reflect. Laugh.

There is a sense of extreme 'busyness' at the moment. It's hard to believe the first quarter of 2017 is almost upon us. So much to do. So much to read. So much to learn. So much work... And so little time. If you haven't completed all your CPD credits yet, you have 15...

Embrace 2017 with intention

“Our intention creates our reality” - Dr Wayne Dyer I love this time of year. There is an atmosphere of possibility, a clean slate and an opportunity for a fresh start. Many people I know set new year resolutions, but this is not a practice that has ever worked for...
