How Jealousy Kick-started my Writing Career

I thought jealousy was a forbidden emotion. One of the 10 commandments is "Thou shalt not covet." And as a small child in Sunday school, I was taught that the word "covet" basically meant being jealous. However, as a thirty year old, I have come to realise that there is a huge difference between "coveting" … Continue reading How Jealousy Kick-started my Writing Career

Update: Life is Bittersweet.

I want to make something incredibly clear. When I am perceived to be doing well at something, whether it's a new business venture, or publishing my own books... do not feel jealous. I do well in projects when I am struggling the most with my mental health. I don't know why, but it's true! I … Continue reading Update: Life is Bittersweet.

Can you Interpret this Dream?

Last night, I had a crazy interesting dream. If you're familiar with the Bible stories, you'll remember learning about Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat. (Queue singing: Jacooooob!

Whatever you do today, do it with PRIDE

Ok, so I don’t know about you guys, but in my culture the word “pride” has some negative connotations.

You died!” And he smiled, placed his … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Nine

Grounding: Day Twenty Seven

Grounding: Day Twenty Seven In proper routine now. I grounded several times today just walking around my back garden to take bins out, sort the puppy and just because I felt like it. I have decided that for me, grounding clears my head and helps my focus. I’ve found myself spending less time on my … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Seven

Grounding: Day Twenty Six

Grounding: Day Twenty Six I spoke about my grounding experience here. Today I have felt almost like the normal Laura. I joked with the kids, made a delicious stir fry for lunch, managed an epic fail at a chocolate hedgehog cake AND maintained in a good mood throughout the evening. I haven’t felt this good … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Six

Messages from Heaven

In my post The Pathway to Healing is not Simple, I promised that next time I go out for a walk I’ll share some beautiful hidden treasures in Swindon. Today is the day, I got ready for school run, dropped the kids off and ventured out wherever my heart compelled me to go. I anticipated … Continue reading Messages from Heaven

Grounding: Day Twenty Four Today I acted as Nurse Burton because all three of my children were unwell with fevers and upset stomachs. Once all the boys were settled, I took the opportunity to clear out my kitchen. I want the energy to flow easily in my home. I absolutely hate clutter, and yet having … Continue reading Grounding: Day Twenty Four
