A quick post to kick off this new month, November. If you want a quick introduction into how and why you're attracting stuff into your life - the good, the bad, the ugly - and how to reset so you can increase the likelihood of attracting the good, the better, the best - keep reading.… Continue reading How to Reset Your Reticular Activating System (RAS) To Attract Better
What brings you most joy? 'What brings you most joy?' is a question I wrote and reflected on recently as I soaked tired and sore legs in a much-needed Epsom salt bath. Why that question?

If I'm honest, this one has taken longer to achieve than my Olympic dream. In… Continue reading 14 Years Later… I’m Going to The Commonwealth Games!
I run a business. I’m also a very type-A, hard-as-nails, okay-with-criticism type of person. I see all the faults and all the flaws. I’m hard on myself and others.
