Spring is the perfect time to do it


Wow, it is sort of here,

Spring is in the air, and I feel the brighter light and warmer temperatures energising my soul.

During winter months, I tend to become more introspective and not so keen to venture out into the rain and cold which makes it a perfect time to take a pause and notice what is going on.

I thought about what my true vision was, where do I want to be in 12 months’ time and what I must achieve each month to get there?

I drew pictures, maps, lists and then I thought to myself  ….what a load of crap.

None of it was inspiring me.

I had this icky feeling that I was missing something and most times I trust my icky feelings the rest of the time I ignore them but this time I trusted.

I was focused on outside qualities of achieving, doing, getting stuff done. Which are good qualities and essential to moving forward but the fixation can rob you of a more profound understanding? I was not listening to my essential spirit, the part of me that knows who I am and what is vital to my soul’s journey.


I changed my questioning from, what is my true vision? Where do I want to be in 12 months’ time and what must I achieve each month to get there?


Who do I want to be? How do I want to show up and share my gifts and talents with the world? Then I quickly felt inspired, enthusiastic and excited.

My focus had shifted from outcome to being, and my creative flare was renewed. Once I started to feel and think about

what inspires me?

how do I want to feel in this moment and the next?

what puts a bounce in my step?

what drains my energy and sucks my life force?

what do I want to experience over and over again?

what brings me joy?

what connects me to my highest self?

what keeps me going when all else falls apart?

What makes me feel empowered, inspired and enthusiastic?

I realised

The most powerful gift we can give ourselves is to know who we are and how we want to show up.

Think about it

Do you want to be empowered, authentic and in alignment with your higher intelligence and wisdom? so you can succeed in all your pursuits

Maybe you have had a similar experience and understood the deeper meaning behind the words on this page, and perhaps you haven’t.

either way

Prioritising your time to honestly know who you are, how you tick and how you want to show up will empower you and change the way you see yourself and your future possibilities.

Now is a perfect time as Spring is upon us.

The earth is waking up from its winter slumber, the buds are blooming, flowers blossoming, and sweet fragrances fill the air.

The nature of Spring is a time for renewal, transition, transformation, birth, joy, lightness, growth and the natural season to start new projects, deliver new ideas and let your creative flare take shape.

Give yourself a Gift you deserve it

Get to know you and how you tick

Sit down for an hour or more and get into it.
