I’m Getting Married!

I was asked by someone very close to me about the idea of getting married to a woman and having children. He was worried that as I got older I wouldn’t have anyone to take care of me. My response was emotional, heartbroken, painful and yet profound at the same time.

In My Head!

Depression can sometimes destroy your sense of belonging and acceptance of yourself. I wanted to share a little of my experiences with depression and living in Cambodia. I hope this helps others who are trying to cope with their own depression and anxiety problems.

What Motivates You?

The other day I asked a question to a good friend on Facebook. What motivates you? It was a question I asked of myself too. Last year in September I made the decision to put in my resignation from my job effective at the end of December 2015. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but it was something that my heart had been feeling for a very long time. I started to lose all sense of my work and I didn’t have the heart to do what was assigned to me any-more.

Letting Go

Living in Cambodia has helped me face my own truth about who I am and the people I have come to love. Ironically that was not the case when I first came to this country. I put up a wall in front of me to hide much of myself yet over the years it all came crashing down and I’m glad it did. Accepting myself was a daily sacrament I endured and even more so living in Cambodia. It came with a whole lot of different feelings, emotions and expectations of myself and the people I came to call family here.

Happy Birthday 45 Years

Today I celebrate my 45th birthday another milestone in my life. This day 45 years ago I was born in the National Women’s Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand. Since then much has changed and now I find myself living here in Phnom Penh, Cambodia 45 years later.
