A little about me and why I do what I do… I seem to have an unstoppable passion in creating art, books & resources that will inspire all ages to live more mindfully and to practise living more in the present moment “together”. My first book was created to help both kids and adults to unwind, relax and connect with each other while using the combination of creativity and positivity as a daily mindfulness tool.
While navigating through the loss of my marriage and my mother passing at the same time, I found that painting art and nurturing a positive mindset helped me with stress and depression and placed me on the path to healing. Through my own experiences and research into the psychology behind a person’s childhood and the subconsciously programmed “comments” we carry into our adult years, I realised that the power of thoughts had guided me to good and bad experiences, from living out my dreams as a model over seas with no fear only passion. I took risks because I went with my heart. I also understand the power of my inner-critic and lack of self-worth that steered my life into unhealthy directions.
After much research, studies and reflection, I embrace all lessons with no regrets. Without all the highs and lows over the years as a single mum I wouldn’t have ignited all my underlying passions of creativity and positivity which I realise is my happy place and purpose.
After my book launched I wanted to add another unique way to teach children not just about their self-talk and the importance of a “positive growth mindset” via affirmations, but to actually bring awareness to what makes them “feel good about themselves” when they tap into their own powers. Super Powers such as being generous, kind, grateful, loving, inspiring, gentle, forgiving, mindful to name a few.
“What you give you generally get back” “What you think you become”. “Where attention goes energy flows”.
My wish is that children really understand that every “super power” they embrace impacts their “feelings” and “experiences” on a daily basis along with every “thought they think and word they speak” is ultimately creating their life path.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. Parents, teachers and carers are the ones that influence a child’s life. So thank you for helping to empower our next mindful generation with the self-awareness we wish we had growing up!
With much love and gratitude,
