Going YOUR own way

I am all for sharing our lessons and the things that help and support us, that is one of the reasons I have created this blog and my Podcast, but I feel that any person of influence has a responsibility to encourage people to experience things in their own way, without being made to feel that there is a 'right' or 'wrong' way to go through something.

What I wish I learned...

When I was at school I remember two distinct times that periods were discussed. At primary school, when we were sat in a hall all together and the at secondary school when the focus was on not getting pregnant, contraception and STDs. Those were the only times anyone mentioned periods to me during my educational years…

Honouring our menstrual cycle

Until just over four years ago - I didn't think twice about my period. I didn't consider it as something to be grateful for, or that I was lucky to have this monthly cycle.

Expect nothing, appreciate everything...

As I said goodbye to my husband and Dad at the airport, I walked through security and into the departure lounge with tears streaming down my face. I didn't care what people thought of me because I was so consumed with emotion that it felt too painful to try and swallow back the tears.
