It takes a lot of courage to come to a place like this - where you will begin or further your journey into greater self-awareness, self-confidence, self-esteem and knowledge.
It is sometimes much easier to stay in the place of unconscious living - where you don't have to think about yourself or your life or your choices. Instead, you are here because you want to live consciously, and you want to gather support and guidance to take you from where you are now to where you want to be.
I hope you find what you are looking for in amongst the regular journal postings, the nurturing words I collect and share, and the many and varied resources, links, book titles, and ideas gathered in this one place.
I want this to be a place you return to when you need to, and sometimes just when you are wondering what the latest discussion is about - so bookmark it in your browser now.
I also want this to be a place of sharing, reflection, feedback and growth for us all: which means that your participation, input and feedback are a contribution you can make here to your own journey and to the journey of others.
To begin with, the focus of my work is on depression in women. You will find resources on depression, resilience, adaptability, flexibility and self-care. You will also find things to inspire you to look deeper into who you are and who you want to be - and to encourage you to live a more authentic and conscious life.
In the coming months (and years) the site will morph into other areas: often things that are co-issues for parents and women, including: self-esteem, motivation and performance - all of which is also relevant for men and teenagers. Like us all, this site is imperfect and in a state of constant change and growth.
