June 2022

June has come and gone already - where has the time gone? We are over halfway into 2022! As I read back on this month's daily gratitudes, I notice that I have been in tune with mind and body and looking to different ways of coping with life's stresses. After all, self care should not [...]

May 2022

May is my birthday month and I have learnt a lot this month. I've learnt more about myself, my habits, mental health, self care, and about various people in my life. I am super grateful that I have people in my life who feel safe to be open and honest with me. I have had [...]
