Living and creating unapologetically—
following the inner guide before any guru.
Releasing urgency and effort into ease and flow.
Communicating with deep awareness—
words that reach for the inexpressible.
I have a knack with words and though the relationship has been fraught at times, words have a knack of drawing me back to the page.
Initially I put my words to work in the conventional way, a corporate communications and management career. Eventually, like many of us, I realised I was following someone else’s map. I needed to find my own way.
Working one-on-one with lovely people who are in the business of making a positive change in the world has been a surprising gift.
Helping them articulate their personal vision of service, and watching that process light up their self-belief and energy, is a genuine joy. The surprising part has been the deepening trust in my intuition and renewed intimacy with my own words.
Inseparable to this is my experience living with a chronic illness called Crohn’s.
It’s been a catalyst for inner exploration, and for learning what it means to be unapologetically me.
That is, not rejecting or denying anything about my self in order to conform to external models of success, and crafting a business and life in alignment with my natural rhythms and pace. It has also meant taking time to pause, to rest and simply be.
It's an ongoing and unfolding practice.
If you'd like to hear from me semi-regularly, I'd love to send you my Letters for the Reckless.
