2. If you want to awaken all of humanity, awaken all of yourself. Lao Tzu


Our world and lives as we know it seems to be ever evolving. There is so much going on that at times it feels overwhelming. Over a week ago people around the country stood in unison and rallied for their freedom. Freedom to see their loved ones, to work, to roam, to socialise, to no longer be locked up, to have a choice about vaccinating and the list unfortunately goes on. This is by no means a political post, rather a plea to humanity to have a close look at who we are and how we show up in the world. Our own inner work, our most important yet is the foundation. If we are choosing to demoralise someone who has chosen to attend a protest, let’s also make sure that we are not standing in the hypocrisy of our own contradictions. There are some who bellow from the rooftops on how much they are doing for humanity but then create disharmony with those that don’t agree with them. All aspects of health are important and with suicide numbers rising perhaps an opportunity to understand how we contribute to the wellbeing of others.

We are living in such unknown times and now more than ever we should be connecting and creating. Instead I was perplexed about what I read and heard. What I witnessed was large amounts of bullying, name calling, judgement and distaste. This ranged from public figures who also promote anti bullying, politicians and humanity creating a greater divide. We are all somewhat operating from fear. Our fears may be coming from different viewpoints but ultimately they are the same. Understanding where our fears come from may be our biggest work yet. Regardless of a political agenda somehow we have forgotten about kindness, respect, compassion and loyalty to one another.

What has literally caused a head spin is the divide that is currently playing out. You can’t claim to want to vaccinate for humanity and then intimidate another for not doing the same. On the flip side professing love and light and then harassing another who doesn’t have the same viewpoint contradicts the essence of the message. These are very general observations and only scratch the surface of the bigger picture.

When did it become justified to torment one another? Isn’t this what we tell our kids not to do? If we ultimately all just want to feel safe isn’t this a common goal that we can be working towards? We don’t have to all agree but do we need to be compounding the situation? Our world is changing as we know it, whether we like it or not. For every action there is a reaction. Communities and connection are more important now more than ever. Isn’t it time we rise as a collective irrespective of our differences and work towards a common goal of peace, freedom and love for all. #connect2createchange#

8. “When given the choice between being right or being kind choose kind.”



I watched Wonder with my roomie last night. It was the perfect weather to be home on a Saturday night to watch a movie. With Maltesers and Twisties in tow, we assumed our positions on the couch, watched and cried as the lessons unveiled and the story of a very special young boy was told. A true account of what one’s tribulations can offer the world in the most magical of ways. When life presents outside the “norm”, whatever that even means it seems to throw a lot of things into a flurry. For “Auggie” the main character of the movie the so called deformities on his face made his life hard and painful and equally beautiful.

As I watched I thought of my funny, open hearted sister. I winced at the amount of times she has been stared at or eyes have glazed upon her with someone trying to figure out “what is wrong with her”. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her. In fact she is one of the most amazing human beings that I will ever know. What she teaches the world that she lives in far outweighs any label of disability. People that know and love her undoubtedly feel that but for those that gaze and encounter her otherwise it can sometimes be cruel and unkind.

The quote that I am writing from today is one that was prevalent throughout the movie and one that I have heard a couple of times in the last few weeks. It is simple yet one that we seem to miss every now and again. I have certainly gotten better at deciphering between being right and kind but every now and then it seeps in. That is OK as long as I don’t live there and choose kindness. When it comes to my sister the protective wolf comes in and I am not quite sure that I have always chosen kindness, instead opting to be right. Up until last night I felt that it was my right to be her voice and I always will be. Choosing kindness and understanding far outweighs the ripple effect of being right.

Sometimes it is the smallest of encounters that make up the big stuff. It could be the person that cut you off in traffic, or the sales assistant that wasn’t helpful. Are you choosing kindness or being right?  Trust me there are many a time where I have chosen the latter and I am happy to own my stuff but upon reflection it is not conducive. We are human and we don’t have to beat ourselves up over things we think we should or shouldn’t be doing. Instead awareness and understanding is what ultimately leads us to a place of peace and freedom within ourselves. Life will always present us with stuff but ultimately it is what we choose that makes the difference. “When given the choice between being right or being kind choose kind.” Blessed be and so it is.
