Inspiration to help you stop spinning, and Start Living!
Have you ever looked back at your life and wondered how you got to where you are today? Life has stages and there are a few where we can stop and think, is life slipping me by?

- the ‘junk room’ that is home to all of the things you can find a space for?
- decluttering your home so your mind can be clear and focused?
Do you live apologetically?
It’s probably not something you’ve spent much time thinking about, but it can have a major impact on how your life evolves.

A woman on her own has strong inner power. She can change the world. She can make it a better place. She can lock arms with other women and really compound this inner power for the greater good of everyone!  Because women always support women yes?.....or maybe not so much.

Have you ever had a moment where you have suddenly questioned who you are? Why are you here? What your legacy will be?
Many people see cancer survivors as - "you beat it, you're all good now". Yes, we did...however, for many of us we are also still battling. For many, the daily battles of our own minds are enough to sometimes bring us to our knees.
Have you ever had a defining moment in your life? One of those moments when you question everything.
