Like you, I am shaped by my environment. The perfectly marvellous combination of transgenerational DNA and environmentally sourced wisdom, trauma and mastery coupled with influences from the cumulative experiences of 40 something years in this form. I’ve been blessed to have been raised by incredible parents, grandparents, siblings, a husband and two step children, a small country town, a public school education and Indigenous and rural people.

So often we outsource the requirement of understanding to others, expecting they will know us, will respond to our needs in a way that…

I have every right to put myself first.

But with rights come responsibility. Which means I have every responsibility to put myself first. This is a condition that we are still grappling with as individuals living in a complex ecosystem. But a tree does not withhold its treeness to avoid hurting another tree.  It is unapologetically a tree… but a tree will also…

The WHYld ride

One of my favourite tools to share for transformational personal growth is the 5 WHYs….
