friends, it’s taken me a while - but i’m ready to share. Tyler and i ended our relationship 4 weeks ago. i haven’t spoken up on here because i needed time to process my new reality. 3 years of partnership came to an end in 3 hours. funny how that works, huh?
it was a tender uncoupling, but in the end, we realized that our timing wasn’t right anymore. we had an incredible relationship and a beautiful friendship, but we struggled deeply with matching ideas of what our future should look like.
in the last 4 weeks i‘ve experienced the deepest sadness that i have ever known. complete groundlessness. in between the pain, i have also had moments of joy, freedom, excitement, and optimism. all because i’ve decided to embrace feeling lonely, anxious, and broken hearted. instead of running from it, i’m running towards it and sitting with it, knowing that it can be a beautiful gift when received with acceptance + gratitude.
i’m so grateful that i had the opportunity to visit Thailand during this time. my routine at home quickly became a safety net and left me feeling numb to all that has happened. i flew across the world with ALL of my baggage in tow. it was intense, but good. i went not to distract, but to break open.
home now and feeling more than ever.
i’m still in a state of processing, but knew it was time to open up to my insta fam. though it feels kind of insane to share this deep part of my life with 50 thousand strangers, i’ve never felt closer to you all.
here’s what i’ve learned in the past 4 weeks:
in order to find joy, we must first sit in our pain. this is the path of the warrior.
in order to be reborn, we need to allow ourselves to die. this is the path of the phoenix.
and in order to awaken our true nature, we need to start with a broken heart. this is the path i currently walk, and i couldn’t be more grateful.
thanks for loving me through it all, fam. i’d love to open a space up to talk about heartbreak here - something we all experience, yet a topic i’ve never really seen covered online. drop a line if you feel called ♡
have a beautiful tuesday!
If I can teach you anything in life, it’s to always be kind, humble and even when times get tough, put a smile on your face! 😊
Today marks 8 weeks of you coming into this world and changing my life forever.
Today also marks the closing of a huge chapter in my life... and although it’s a tough pill to swallow, I know the best is yet to come!
I’m so blessed to be your mommy and I hope that you’re proud of the things I’m able to accomplish in this world. I love you with every ounce of my being.
Thank you for giving me purpose my sweet angel! #8weekupdate#NewChapter#OnwardAndUpward

My Women Crush Wednesday is dedicated to all the women in my tribe. These ladies have been my world. Many are missing, but you all know what role you've played in my life. Thank you. Thank you for being there. From outdoor adventures to celebrations. We've made tons of memories. I had an amazing bithday celebration I'll never forget, hiked trails I never knew about and made new friends for a life time. I am truly blessed and excited for what's next. I know the next mountain I climb is going to go to be the best yet. .
Be consciously aware of change. It will make life much easier. Explore the world and the endless possibilities available to you. Find new opportunities. Be brave and face fear. The world isn't as scary as you might think and there are lots of things out there that are potentially life enhancing but you have to explore them. Embrace change with a calm and relaxed mind. Know where you are going and what you are setting out to accomplish.
I spent 1.5 months getting this home ready for sale. We renovated this original home of 25 years to give it a fresh modern appeal. I felt a personal connection after all was done. However, my attachment does not compare to the sellers that I had the absolute honor to represent. They have loved this home from the day it was built for them. They raised their family and have loved the neighbors and the area. At last, they are ready to downsize, and a new beautiful young family is getting ready to make their memories. I wish them lots of wonderful adventures in their new chapter. As well as my sellers in their new home. A wonderful way to start the holidays. Blessings to all!
Mental health is a real thing and I feel everyone at some point gets it... I can put my hand up and say I am one for them, this year has been a hard year.
I have moved 2 times to which I ended up in Bendigo, I was so lucky to end up with a full time job, a cute little unit and a sexy car and I really thought this was going to make me happy and I could see myself here for years but that isn't the case...
I had to made a hard choice and that was to put my notice in at a job I love but that love for my job isnt strong then the need for my to go home to my family in Adelaide.
I am so lucky to have the family I have to help me get back to my happy place and that is to be with them. They know who they are, they have helped me the most and are always there when I'm at my lowest but also there at my highest.
This is a new chapter in my life. Never stop chasing your dreams!!! #family#supportoffamily#mentalhealthawareness#neverstopchasingyourdreams#itsoktoputyoufirst#newchapter
Oh Girl! Dies letzten Wochen ist für uns ganz schön herausfordernde. Lou bekommt 4 Zähne auf einmal und die Nächte sind kurz, die Tage anstrengend. Ich weiß, es ist nur eine Phase... und wie schnell sind sie groß und wollen von einer Party abgeholt werden, right? Also stehen wir das durch und genießen den Moment mit starkem Kaffee und guten Hilfsmitteln. #momquotes#fourthbaby#motherofdaughters#love
There's a place I go to
Where no one knows me
It's not lonely
It's a necessary thing
It's a place I made up
Find out what I'm made of
The nights are stayed up
Counting stars and fighting sleep
Let it wash over me
Ready to lose my feet
Take me on to the place where one reviews life's mistery
Steady on down the line
Lose every sense of time
Take it all in and wake up that small part of me
Day to day I'm blind to see
And find how far
Everybody got their reason
Everybody got their way
We're just catching and releasing
What builds up throughout the day
It gets into your body
And it flows right through your blood
We can tell each other secrets
And remember how to love
My new chapter. 📖
New things are happening good things.💜
I embrace everything coming my way. 😘
I will forever miss those who have gone to a better place and will live in my heart and memories forever.🙏🏻
Life is too short and too precious!🤙🏻

⭐️ Happy Thursday all!! 🌷😁 I know it’s been a long time coming this post hasn’t it?! 🙈😂As you all maybe aware myself and my little family have been moving house and town the past few days so I’ve been pretty quiet on here! This pic was taken few days before we moved and I am now officially 28 weeks pregnant and ready to start our new adventure in our new home 🥰
Today is the day we leave India after a month long. Today is also the day I’m parting ways with this amazing human @shmeeagle and go off on my own... What a month it has been. We saw 10 cities and took over 10 flights. So much laughter, food, beauty, challenges and learning experiences!! @shmeeagle you are an absolutely gem. Thank you for your support, your strength and your sense of humour. You made India even more special! .
Today is also the day I retire from the RCMP after 10 years. What an emotional roller coaster it has been. I’m turning the page on this beautiful and also very challenging chapter of my life and I’m starting from scratch. I never thought I would write these words one day but here I am! Thank you to everyone that has supported me through my journey and keep supporting me through this new journey of self-discovery. Am I scared shitless? Fuck yes! But what puts me at ease when I have my moments of « holy shit, what am I doing? » is knowing that I am following my heart and knowing deep down that I’m choosing me and my mental health over anything else.
Siargao, Philippines... HERE I COME! Love you all so much! ♥️♥️♥️ #india#byeindia#rishikesh#bestravelpartner#newchapter#philippines#manila#siargao#icandothis#officiallyretired#grateful#craziness#mylife#shanandmeagdoindia#gangariver#mala

If you want to live a happy life, you have to be okay with being unhappy.
Life goes up and down.
You experience joy, and you experience pain. This is life but this is okay.
You don’t need to hold on so tight. You don’t have to make life do what you think you want.
Today I got a swift reminder that I have to let go of wanting to control everything and remind myself that happiness comes from the inside.
A little over a year ago, I was presented this opportunity. Like most people I thought... I don’t have time, I don’t know if this will ever work, I don’t like to sell things, I will never get the support from my friends and family...but i took a second look.
I have to tell you that biting the bullet and taking a chance scared The hell out of me, but as a single mom I was struggling financially and I was just tired of living that way.
Tired of worrying about how I’m going to pay for Christmas. Tired of worrying about how to pay for school clothes and school supplies. Tired of not being able to take a vacation because there is no money there to take a vacation.
