I remember a time many years ago, when I was struggling with early sobriety.

I was on my way home from a shopping trip with my two young sons in the car. It was February, school had just gone back and in New Zealand it’s mid summer in February. Auckland has hot, muggy s...

I'm asking myself where did the first quarter of the year go?

I'm also looking at my goals for this quarter and I'm pleased to report that I've likely hit 80% of them.

How have you done with your goals for the first quarter?

If you're struggling with achieving your potent...

As I sit here writing this, I can feel the little beads of sweat dripping down various parts of my body.

Ugh...you might think, but this is the reality of living in Auckland in mid-February. It’s one of the muggiest times of the year. But do not feel sorry for me, I’m h...

This post could easily have a sub-heading, "How to Manage the Unmanageable" or even, "My Stationery Obsession" :-)

I was thinking about the way that I keep my life and my tasks in order. I like to think that I’m a modern woman who’s embracing technology. I mean, I own a...

It’s February already, so I tell myself I should be well back into my routine.

I don’t know what it’s like where you are in the world, but here in New Zealand, it’s the middle of summer and that still makes me want to be in holiday mode. The local children may have gone...

Today I’m grateful for my cat, Freyja.

She drives me nuts at dawn when she meows at me to get up and feed her--which I ignore by the way--but it doesn’t stop her doing it.

We play the same silly game every morning. I think she’s just letting me know that it’s nearly time...

Today's blog is more of a vlog :-)

I wanted to talk to you about my Passion Pulse and why my Passion Pulse and my daily journal are such a foundational part of my life.

They're actually the bedrock that a large portion of my happy life and my sobriety are built upon. The...

Every new year brings with it the potential for new adventures. I don’t know how you’re feeling at the moment, but I’m incredibly excited about what 2019 has in store for me.

But, alas, it wasn’t always like that.

Let me take you back to a time in my life almost 20 years...

Tis the season--or it's going to be in a week or so anyway.

So, why not get a head start on organising your day?

Head over here to pick up the free Masterclass that I've put together for you.

There's a reason that this time of the year is called the "Silly Season" and it'...

Today I'm grateful for the friends and family that I have in my life.

Sometimes friends and family aren’t the same thing and that’s okay.  When you come from a background of dysfunction and addiction, it can be especially difficult to see friends and family in the same...
