My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

painful), you will know a kind of joy that simply can’t be found any other way.
Parenting will be the ultimate life-experience gift you give to yourself. It is
better than graduating high school or finishing a two-year quilting project,
better than bungee jumping, and better than being promoted at work. But, to get
there, you’ve got to turn your energies toward enjoying the experience of being
a parent. You’ve got to empower yourself by recognizing that you’re going to
experience those negative feelings, and ditching the guilt associated with them.
Once this happens, you can give yourself permission to feel good about what you
are doing as a parent. And your kids will feel good about having you as their

That was wonderful, I try to be "ME" and just "BE" every day. My five children re-inforce this daily as I have tried to let them be who they are.

It is something that does try to rear it's ugly head, and I tackle within me everyday...I will not let it beat me down though!
this post is a great reminder to us all, that it's so common, but we shouldn't let it consume us. THANKS!!
