Over-Stimulation

Phew! The holidays are over. It was fun but darn it’s exhausting! Just ask The Ginger Menace. He was definitely in overdrive. He and his Super Cousin had a fantastic time but their parents were pooped, and that’s okay. Read all about it in my new post Over-Stimulation! #bravecreativeme #massivecreativebloominvoked #queerparents #queerfamilies #recoveryfromholidays

Gay and Away

So as year 2016 rolls around the final Pink Play Magazine Issue of the year has also tumbled out. I think we all know how preparedness can help us going into uncertain times so here is an offering on the LGBTQ+ community in their “Twilight Years” and the ways we can help plan on a more joyous, healthy and secure future.

Have a beautiful New Year …

I love this space I have created and I love using it to express myself! Now I have partial access I wanted to post this as I saw it sitting in the “out” pile. It is a part of my intention to really brand myself as the Brave.Creative.Me I am. I don’t know what will happen in the future, what it will look like and how the labels that apply to me …

My Heart is Here

image

Or maybe it should be oops, my heart is here. After the last fantastic and blissful two days I woke up feeling euphoric. I have seen so many grateful and open minded people and have felt like a superstar giving back to my community like this. However when I woke up I also woke up to a reminder and realised is it possible? Have I really been so incredibly busy on my power week that my wedding anniversary slipped my mind? This has never happened in five years. I knew it was coming so maybe I subconsciously distracted myself? Well it …

FullSizeRender-23 copy

How do you speak to yourself? Not just speak but nurture yourself with words? Do you do it with encouragement and praise, with joy and hope? I feel you must take advantage of your own voice because it is the one you are sure to hear all of your life, and it is a way more positive conversation if it is kind! Narrative Healing is a curious thing that happens when you write. The moments I am most in need of a good talking to are usually powerful.  No more so in fact than when I address a letter to myself! It’s like a lifeline, or …
