Expressing yourself honestly, should always be the aim.

Not so much to convince anyone of anything, but more so to uncover the reality of each situation

The alternative, well the alternative is to keep pretending

To go on living in a deluded fantasy. 

We often censor ourselves to avoid rocking the boat, 

When rocking the boat is sometimes the only way to go.

We accept things that happen to us and around us at face value

And we prefer to avoid, instead of confront.

Compromising little by little, until you’ve essentially compromised yourself away.

Looking yourself in the mirror and no longer recognising who you see.

The point is not to be impolite or insensitive.

The point is simply to be part of the conversation

To be find your voice,

Only then, do you stop being absent and begin being present

Only then do you begin to embrace the spirit of who you are and what you bring

And only then, do you really begin to own it.

And it’s only when you own it, that you can begin to transform it.

Anything less and you’re doing yourself and the rest of us a disservice

Because life is not about being liked, it’s about being honest.

And although that may seem a little daunting, it’s only the truth that will set you free.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
