EMOTIONALLY REACTING VS EMOTIONALLY RESPONDING

Last week my drama kids performed so brilliantly in; “The Magic Tree”, all their hard work, rehearsing, and prepping beforehand really paid off! They performed with confidence, and shone on stage, I couldn’t be more prouder of them as their “drama mama”. As the weeks were building up towards opening night, a reoccurring line that kept being thrown towards me from parents and the teachers was: “Why are you so calm? Are you freaking out on the inside? You always look so calm!” I should have been freaking out like an… Read More

THE MIST | NAVIGATING THROUGH AN EMOTIONAL HAZE

One of things that I really love about Winter are misty days. I love how the mist makes everything seem hazy, and dreamy. One of my favourite things to do is to head down to the beach when it’s misty and overcast, as it makes the beach look and feel serene, and dreamy. However, when I drive through the mist in my car I tend to feel anxious, as I can’t really see what exactly is before me, or on either side of me. Therefore, I tend to drive slowly… Read More
