How Often?

"Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them." - Brené Brown It's Saturday afternoon as I'm writing this. I've just finished facilitating the July session of our year long Let's L.E.A.D. Program with SCARF Youth here in the Illawarra (Strategic Community Assistance for Refugee Families). I'm feeling so inspired (again). But also reflective. So much of what came up within the session today, plus what a Year 5 girl said during one of our program days a week ago, keeps bouncing around my head. "Leadership's not a title. It's a behaviour. Live it!" - Robin Sharma As you k

Stepping into the Dojo

During the past week I tried a certain activity for the very first time. There was plenty of excitement. There was plenty of anticipation. There was plenty of nervousness as well.

The Desire Line

Image found on Pinterest and credited to wwwis.win.tue.nl I’ve always been fascinated by them. How they look. How they’re created. Why they exist. But what I find even more fascinating than all that is what desire lines (like the one pictured above) might represent within our journeys of potential. “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson I love thinking in metaphors (or pictures).
