Surrender...and watch your inner blogger grow 

I always read my blog posts a day or two after I publish them - man is it a humbling experience. If ever I needed a reminder that I am a mere human who makes mistakes, this is the moment I get it like a slap in the face.

Hello, Goodbye

I have always been intrigued by the fact when a friend walks out of your life, through the door they leave open, another one walks in. How when placing the earth over a loved one with tears of sorrow, they turn to tears of joy with the announcement or birth of a new baby. It is the cycle of life. Hello. Goodbye.

Making friends with the writer within me 

For years I have shunned her. Pretended she wasn't there. The writer within me. Yet she has always been me; and I have always been her. The writer.

Discovering the freedom of writing

Writing more freely is about detaching from your writing. That does not mean being cold and distant from it, but truly loving it. Write in a way that embraces the four Buddhists noble truths of love. Maitri, Karuna, Mudita and Upeksha: loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.
