My BIG Leap From Fear To Inspirational Public Speaking

As many of you following may know, this blog was set up by a once shy, introverted woman who was scared to speak, scared to be seen and scared to be heard. Anxiety drove my life and prevented me from accomplishing many things my heart and soul were urging me to do. At University I avoided presentations. At school, I hid at the back. In the schoolyard, I stopped speaking… View Post

Becoming Introvert : Re-Awakening The Real You

  Since I wrote my post ‘Shining As An Introvert’ I discovered how many introverts had taken on the persona of extrovert, and some going so far as expressing extrovert qualities for most of their adult lives. I have a friend in his seventies now and I would never had guessed he was an introvert until he told me he was. He told me that he has most of the… View Post

Shining As An Introvert – Is It Possible?

It is easy as an introvert to want to stay in the shadows, in the safety of quiet alone time. Extroverts live for the limelight.  They thrive and are deeply energised by attention and feedback from the world. Social occasions being food for their souls. Introverts, on the other hand, retreat into their own world, experiencing quiet reflection, nature, and choosing to enjoy smaller social experiences, with fewer people. So,… View Post

Expand don’t Contract – LOVE – FEAR – CONNECTION

  Would another persons complaints lessen if we truly heard with an open heart and expanded instead of withholding our love? We are told to stay away from negative people – that they will pollute us.

Making New Friends As A Female In Adult Years Can Be Challenging From an early age, I had experiences of rejection from female friends. My first close, intimate friendship was around age 4, but her family moved to another part of the country. My next close friendship was with a girl called Sharon around age 7. When I say intimate I mean natural, honest, authentic when relating. Friendship where you… View Post

Being Human Part 3 – I’m Right You’re Wrong! – We All Do It

This is a follow up to ‘Saying Goodbye To People Pleasing’ HERE I have come to the conclusion that being on a journey of self-awareness or spirituality can breed a unsavoury side to how we deal with ourselves. Many people view weaknesses or imperfections as un-spiritual. I imagine there are heck of a lot of people hiding behind a spiritual façade where on the surface everything appears ‘perfect’, where the face the… View Post

Being Human Part 1 : Loving Pinocchio – Embracing My Inner Fake

There comes a time in your life where you acknowledge a few home truths about yourself. When the monkey mind rattles a few re-occurring thoughts at you and you begin to question why you believe those thoughts. A big loud thought that likes to rattle on inside my mind is ‘You are such a fake!’ I guess it has not been until I began practising mindfulness that it became so… View Post

Heart Communication – Are You An Interrupter?

Since becoming more mindful in my day-to-day experiences I notice how much I want to change my communication style. As someone who has experienced anxiety for a long time, I notice that out of anxiety often comes interrupting others. I thought I was the only one, but I recently met a lady suffering from anxiety who spoke like a machine gun, never fully present to hear the other person. I… View Post
