3 Minute Monday – Neediness, Children & Fertility

Hi friend, “Neediness occurs when you place a higher priority on what others think of you than what you think of yourself.

3 Minute Monday – Emotions, Nipples & Cats

Hi friend, I had a conversation this week with a friend about emotions, specifically jealousy, frustration and anger. About how they hijack even the most cerebral, cognitively sophisticated person.

3 Minute Monday – Waiting, Negativity & Misogyny

Hi friend, Don’t wait. Life is happening right now. I’ve become obsessed with the belief that life’s duties will one day be out of the way and you can then finally start doing the thing you want to and living your life fully. This is a myth. It’s a lie. Marie-Louise von Franz talks about […]

3 Minute Monday – Truth, Schools & Da Vinci

Hi friend, “You should “just be yourself” not because it will make you more likeable (it won’t) but because it’s only by being yourself that you’ll find people who like you for who you really are rather than for someone you’re pretending to be.” — Gurwinder Bhogal This was one of the biggest realisations of […]

3 Minute Monday – Presence, Children & Darwin

Hi friend, Well that was a spicy few days. If you didn’t catch my episode on the Joe Rogan Experience, listen now on Spotify. I’ve been thinking about presence this week. Blaise Pascal explains the problem… “We never keep to the present. We anticipate the future as if we found it too slow in coming and […]
