It has been a while!! As some of you may know, we were expecting our second towards the end of the year... and well... on 1st January 2020 - we welcomed a new addition to our family - Brooklyn Leo Nguyen!
I took a bit of time off to concentrate on the pregnancy, settling in as a new mother to a toddler and newborn; and of course, navigating the changes as husband and wife with two children......
I'm writing this to you at 38.5 weeks pregnant - Bub is going to grace our lives any day now!!! :)
Just the other day, we got Avery's newborn clothes out to wash and prepare for the little one on the way (we don't know it's a boy or a girl!) and this wave of uncertainty and fear came over me.
"I think I've forgotten how to look after a newborn!".
In the next moment, I thought;...
Dr Joe Dispenza is an incredible neuroscientist, researcher, and teacher - and he BRILLIANTLY bridges the world of Science (specifically Neuroscience and Quantum Physics) with Spirituality together in his teachings.
His main speciality is how to "rewire" your brain - and he teaches this through meditation.
Through learning his meditations, I host a fortnightly meditation with other Dr...
The capacity in which we can master "choosing our thoughts" is directly correlated to the reality we experience in this thing called life.
At any moment, we have a choice on how we think, what we think, and the thoughts that we choose to honour.
We do not need to give attention to every single thought.
I had spent a good few hours (close to 2 days) drafting up this week's...
It's a gorgeous Sunday in Spring - The sky is velvety blue, the sun is beaming with joy, and it is as though the trees are singing and taking in the glory of the day.
Families are out and about, picnics in the park, the sound of kids giggling and playing - just one of those settings that warm your heart.
An experience of feeling blessed and grateful washes over me.
Mother nature just has this...
It is mid-morning, and we're in the car driving home. Avery had taken off one of his sandals.
"Mummy - Can you get my shoe? I want my shoe!!".
"Honey, I can't - Mummy finds it hard to turn around and reach down for your shoe. We're almost home - as soon as we stop the car, I'll get your shoe."
"Mummy, I want my shoe!!!". Avery whimpers
"Honey, I know you want your shoe... I...
Firstly, I apologise for last week. I missed sending out a newsletter. I started writing it and realised I had overcommitted to several things in the previous week.
I started getting short with Avery, frustrated with myself, and my writing was coming from a place of force - not love. I know these are tell-tale signs to; "stop, let-go, breathe - reassess.".
In reassessing - I checked in with my...
I want to share a story on how one of the darkest moments in my life also worked out to be one of the biggest blessings that I am so grateful to experience.
I couldn't stop crying. It's a depth of despair that I've never known before. John and I are lying in bed. He looks over with concern and holds me tight.
"Is there anything I can do?" He asks.
"I just need a hug... and for you to...
It's 22nd September 2014 - John and I are in Furore, Italy. It is our wedding day.
One of the readings we chose for our wedding was 1 Corinthians.
I don't consider myself "religious" and this verse from the Corinthians moves me. When I read the verse, my heart expands, my eyes well up.
"Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not...
There are 97 days left until the end of 2019.
So far in 2019.... how did you live? ...and how did you love?
As part of The Motherhood Mindset Online course, I run a monthly Facebook Live Q&A and explore a specific topic.
This month's workshop is on "Thriving". Not just in parenthood - in life.
When it comes to motherhood and life - these are the common descriptors. Busy....
