If you’re anything like me, you occasionally get yourself a bit stuck, and need a little outside assistance to find your way out of it!

We are here to help! Sometimes it doesn’t take much at all to get things back on track again.

We are doing it. Mums. Dads. Teachers. Healers. Helpers. Leaders of all types. Because it is what we do. Because it matters. It is important.

We will rise up. And make a difference.

We are doing it together ❤️🌟

Yes we are, and yes I did. 💓💓

Apologies are an acknowledgement of having done something wrong. They an important part of accepting responsibility and changing behaviour.

But we often apologise for many things that were never wrong in the first place.

Never apologise for your strength, your feelings, your voice, for being you.

Apologies rescinded.

And if you are, control your controllables, take the steps to set your boundaries and choose who deserves to be in your world! And if you have no control over whether they are there or not, you can choose what you are willing to engage with and what you choose to let go, or how you respond to them. Your power is in the choice 🙌 #alifesimplylivedpsychology #ruralpsychologist #powerinchoice #healthyboundaries ... See MoreSee Less

Feel this to my soul atm 😐

You don’t need to live in a rural community for long to see how much people are prepared to give, and the way common goals bring people together. And when you stand back and observe, you notice that this giving comes in many different forms. It may be a financial contribution to a local club or organisation. It may be donations of goods or services for a fundraiser. It might be the making of a casserole when someone is unwell, or has a newborn. It might be a providing time to a working bee or sausage sizzle, or to sit on a committee, coach a kids sports team, or work at the local op shop. It might be taking a few extra minutes to stop and chat to the young person sitting by themselves in the park looking sad and alone. Importantly, no matter the form of the contribution, each is valuable and important. And some times, giving comes in the form or knowing your own limits, and saying no, when you have got nothing left. Sometimes the best way to contribute to the community is to donate to yourself the gift of self compassion, care for yourself and sit this one out.

Have you ever had the experience where you were surrounded by people most of the time, but felt incredibly lonely? Connection is more complex than simply having people around. Feeling heard, understood, valued and accepted for who you are and what is important to you is essential. Even a single person in your life like this makes a huge difference 🙌 #alifesimplylivedpsychology #ruralpsychologist #connection ... See MoreSee Less

Last week, my baby, the youngest of 4, turned 14. And looking at them all today, I am so proud of them and the humans they are. It’s times like these that I often think of my grandparents, and wonder what they would have thought of these four young humans as they have grown. My tribe never had the opportunity to meet these two incredible people, who were so influential in helping me to become the human I am today. My gentle, compassionate, funny grandfather, a quiet human with a big sense of humour and a heart of gold. And my resilient, strong, determined grandmother who always said it like it is, and challenged me, even when I didn’t like it much. They are part of these young people, not just in name, and I can see so many of their qualities in different combinations in each of them. My secret dream is that they could have known you, and spent time with you. I can imagine us all around the family dinner table, the conversations we would have had. And I am sure they would have been proud of you, and loved you as much as I do. And so, as I reflect tonight on the passing of time, and the tribe of teenagers that make my heart burst, I secretly wish I could have stood time still, to have had more time with them while they were young, to have had time with my grandparents as an adult, and for them to have had the joy of knowing each other.

As their grandparents we are so very proud of all four. Individually they form their own roles in life + apart take life full on. They love + care for each other with patience + love. So I think your ggrandparents will be very "proud to busting" at your four wonderful achievements, as well as, your own. (If I remember correctly, Pa would say, "you will be Pa's Dr one day. I know)😊

My heart bursts just reading what you have written. Love and joy are catching 👏🥰

ADHD isn’t something in your child that needs to be fixed. It is a superpower that they just need to be taught how to use 💪🙌 #alifesimplylivedpsychology #ruralpsychologist #neurodiversity #superpower #adhd ... See MoreSee Less

Usually I push against Christmas decorating until Dec 1. But after the year that has been 2021, I decided to go for it early. We could all do with a little sparkle.

Hands up…. Who else has started their Christmas decorating earlier than usual this year??

Me! With the year we all have had I started last Saturday. Cmas tree in window lit up, hoping it would give out joy, hope + love to someone in need🎅

Sure did! 12th Nov kind of early, we put the tree up together. We’ve had a tough couple of years and we wanted the magic to last longer 💕 and the last couple of weeks we’ve all worked together to transform the front yard into a magical fairy light display 🙌🏻

My twinkling lights for one + all x

Absolutely yes!!! 🌲

Us too

We did 🎄🎅
