The Making of Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal

Well what can I say, I have written my first journal – the Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal. I have had this idea for a number of years, however haven’t had the confidence to bring it in to reality – until now.

During the past couple of week, I have had a few challenging experiences. From these experiences, I learnt there was still parts of my life where I was giving my power away and was not committed to living whole-heartedly and being the leader in my own life.

I have also been speaking to a number of women lately and they indicated that is was time for them to step forward in to their life more whole-heartedly, by taking their own power back and focus on their own needs and holistic wellbeing.

Subsequently, I knew the time was now and it was ready to take my own power back and I created the Whole-Hearted Connection Daily Journal.


Why the Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal?

In the midst of all of the external chaos and pressures – the striving to do your best, the control, wearing masks of perfectionism and pleasing others – women have forgotten they are worthy!

Women have forgotten they are Whole. Enough. Resilient. Loveable. Brave. Capable. Creative. Courageous and have needs.

However, even in the midst of this messiness, struggle, overwhelm and confusion – women and their presence are a gift!

I have written the Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal for women so they can discover a clearer sense of who they truly are, a deeper appreciation of their own worthiness, greater joy and a grounded sense of self-confidence and self-compassion.

No more settling. No more hiding. No more casting aside your emotions or femininity in order to succeed. No more pleasing others and forgetting about your own needs.

Women will be able to be more of their true selves. They will reconnect with their real needs, stand up for themselves with confidence and grace, handle challenging conversations and discover their boundaries and inner guidance.

The daily journal is a 12-month adventure for women to discover what it truly means to whole-heartedly connect to themselves!


“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” ~ Joseph Campbell


What is the Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal?

The Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal is a 12-month adventure to support women reconnect to their wholeness and become the leader in their own life. It is part of the Sovereign Circle – a safe and supportive online professional learning community for women who would like support to focus on their wellbeing and take time out for themselves each day, so they can find the courage to step forward, release what is no longer serving them and become the Sovereign of their own life.

The Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal is about focusing on 12 areas of your life and creating change that feels right for you, whilst embracing your power, so you can experience more bliss and wellbeing in your life!

It is about giving yourself permission to say yes to yourself and following your heart.

Then committing (with flexibility of course) to that change for the coming year.

What could you create in your life over the next year, whilst BEing more of YOU?

What is it that you truly want?

Yes, it is about YOU deciding what you would like to change and then having the courage to step forward and prioritise YOU throughout the year!


The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure. ~ Joseph Campbell


Why Does the Whole-Hearted Connection – Daily Journal Focus on a Year?

There are a couple of reasons.

Firstly – over the years, the clients I have had the privilege of working with have helped me realise that change takes time. Now don’t get me wrong, there are different types of change, however the changes many of my clients were after (i.e. an increase in self-confidence, starting the habit of self-care, developing an exercise habit, deeper self-awareness and self-compassion) were taking longer than they expected. Due to the length of time and their own expectations, some were starting to give up on themselves (which was hard to see). Fortunately, they had support and chose to continue on.

Secondly – as I continued to research change, I came across research done by the European Journal of Social Psychology. The research conducted by Phillippa Lally and her colleagues from the University College London found that change took from 18-254 days and that the average length of change was 66 days.

Thirdly – I knew from experiencing change within my own life, that I needed to be reminded to take small step each day. Little did I know until later (thanks Joseph Campbell – see quote below), that is all I could have taken at that time.

If you can s

Finally – I discovered that the change process was about unlearning as much as remembering. Yes, less is more (not what we have been led to believe). Unlearning or untangling the beliefs, distorted thoughts or conditioning that we had learnt when we were younger and remembering who we truly are. I knew I wanted to create a safe space to continue to change within myself and share that space with other people.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt, “the Man in the Arena”. Delivered at the Sorbonne (Paris) on April 23, 1910.
