L E T T E R from Jo – Love Is The Answer

Whatever the question, Love is always a good answer. So simple, right? Nonetheless, I find it sometimes hard to remember, to remember that love is in fact a good answer. This remembering is my try-for, my intention, my ambition. More love infiltrating all the nooks and crannies of daily life, colouring experiences and moments, gently…

L E T T E R from Jo – The Magic Of Yet

“Yet”, a powerful word, brimming with potential and possibilities, the perfect finisher to many sentences, the opener of doors, the cheerleader of growth, it’s tiny and jam packed with promise. You can not over use it. It signals the attitude of a learner, someone who is open to developing, changing and growing. It suggests we…

L E T T E R from Jac – Just The Weather

It’s so important to remember this. The other day flying to Sydney, I had an old friend visit with force, anxiety. It was a combination of factors that brought my anxiety in, the perfect storm really. I had forgotten the grip of anxiety, and it was a wonderful reminder of how horrible it can feel when gripped by…

Humour is one of my core values, it gives me energy, inspiration, connection. It has the ability to reset me, remind me and change my perspective – its power is endless. I’m talking giggling, belly laughing, small smiles, those joyful moments of presence and appreciation for fun and for lightness. Whilst I don’t have “laugh”…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Frog In The Well

This is a lovely way of describing that we have no idea of our enormous potential as humans, the gigantic capacity of everyone around us. Jadav Payenghas spent nearly all of his life personally planting a forest. He has accumulated over 1360 acres of dense forest with his own hands. Gary Schempp personally re-homed 30,000…

L E T T E R from Jac – Renovating Our Mind Architecture

If you can imagine an architecture that your mind has constructed, like a matrix or 3D rendering, and we mentally live within that architecture. It has been built up over time through all our interactions, the societies we are within, our peers, our work environments. What we ‘know’ is simple what looks normal to us.…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Does Meaning Our Best Mean?

I think we all use the language ‘just do your best’ a lot when going through something challenging. Sometimes it’s ‘well I am sure they meant their best’ and is actually at times making excuses. Sometimes our best is kicking some serious goals, being energised and completely aligned and feeling exhilarated with the day. Sometimes…
