Non-Binary is Not New

As a society, we like to discount ideas by saying they’re new. If it’s the newest technology, everyone wants to be in on it, but not so...

Yawn in the Face of Anxiety

Nobody knows why we yawn. Yawning’s an semi-automatic reflex found in almost all vertebrate animals, from sharks to koalas to snakes,...

Anticipation

I’ve never looked forward to anything. I had this realization the other day, and it felt impossible, but the longer  I sat with it, the...

Hard Things

I’m submitting two of the books I’ve written to the Canadian Writing for Children Competition. I might even submit a third, but with the...

A Sigh of Relief

I’ve been diving deep into breathwork over the last month. As always looking for the magical key that’s going to fix my health and make...

Contagious

Contagious doesn’t need to be a four letter word. We’ve all lived through Covid, a time where blame and illness became strangely...

Learning Surrender

Learning surrender feels a little like setting up an atheist church or running an anarchist government. I’m pretty sure we’re all born...

I can eat anything. I have to keep telling myself this over and over again because it’s nearly impossible for me to believe that it’s...

Waking up exhausted is a defeating way to start the day. I mean, I never wake up feeling good, and hardly ever experience moments at any...

Yours to Choose

If you read my blog last week, you’ll know that studies suggest that the average adult makes between 33 000-35 000 choices a day. I’m not...

What's Next?

An incredibly wise person once told me (ok, she didn’t actually tell me, I read it in her book), that asking ‘Why?’ is a waste of energy,...

Delicious Possibilities

Sometimes, writing is hard. The words don’t want to cooperate and the page stays blank no matter how many words I put on it. Each idea I...

Hope

I lost a day yesterday. Things had been on a downward trajectory for me for a little while and yesterday my energy ran out. I don’t mean...

I was going to write about the destructive powers of apathy this week, but the blog felt heavy and sad. Before I’d even gotten to the...

Is That News?

Reading the news is a practice that I know is not particularly good for my mental health. I like to be informed about what’s happening in...
