Today’s resolution: Move at my own pace
Today was a work-free day, so I went to one of my favourite places, my ‘spirit-home’.....the Dandenong ranges. On my way up the hill I stopped to do the 1000 steps....an activity I might have literally done 1000 times by this point.
I’ll say now that it’s a different experience to what it used to be.
Pre-injury, pre-subsequent weight-gain, pre-compartments-syndrome, I used to smash these steps! I’d time myself and aim for personal bests. And yes, I’d constantly judge myself compared to who else was around me and whether or not I was some imaginary projection of ‘good enough’. These days I’m forced to take a different approach. My body is different now and that’s taken some time (and tears) to accept. I’m lucky though, because no matter how slow; I can still do this. Whereas once I used to let my slightly competitive, dare I say, ‘perfectionist’ streak get the better of me; now I am forced to tune in and take things at a pace that works for me.
Does that mean I’m constantly overtaken by most people, young and old Yep, it does. Does it mean that I take more rest breaks than I used to You betcha. It’s ok though, because I’m still doing it and that’s what counts. It’s a great exercise in self-acceptance, non-judgement and acceptance of the moment.
Life changes. Circumstances change, our bodies change. I think that one of life’s greatest challenges that we all have to deal with in some form or another, is how we incorporate change and loss in to our psyche. I know it’s an ongoing lesson that I continue to learn. #nondietresolution #antidietresolutions #1000steps #dandenongs #ferntreegully #sassafras #exercise #gogentle #goatmyownpace #change #loss #lettinggo #letgo #surrender

I wanted to take this moment to reintroduce myself in the New Year. My name is Dr. Renee. I’d best describe myself as a modern day “Kalyan Mitra.” A Kalyan Mitra reminds us who we are and what we deserve. A Kalyan Mitra is essentially a spiritual teacher who has embraced us as their friend and reminds us of our true self and how to realise it.
The Kalyan Mitra lights the way but never walks the path for us. Instead illuminating the healer deep within ourselves. This spiritual teacher always speaks of truth and has a way about them that one experiences peace in their presence.
As I entered 2020, this word was whispered in my ear from a voice I had not heard before. A sign of my need to step into my rightful position as a beacon of hope and light for others. For decades I questioned my worth, my ability, and doubted my path. The perfect vision of 2020 quickly ripped the blindfold off and showed me the truth. So I am blessed to be this gentle spiritual friend in your life. To be here when you need a light to see the truth of your own creation. My gentleness did not come without great pain, struggle, and rebirth. There is no way to pass from one without the other. There, I spoke the truth. So breathe through the pain and discomfort and allow your healing to emerge. It is time. I am blessed to walk this journey beside you. Peace and blessings, Dr. Renee. 🌟

In 2019 we were approached by Go Gentle Australia to help take on the huge challenge of legalising voluntary assisted dying (VAD) in WA.
Go Gentle fought to provide a choice to West Australians who sought to die with dignity. On Tuesday, after a long and highly emotional campaign, Parliament passed the law.
CGM worked alongside Go Gentle founder Andrew Denton to provide media support during some of the milestones along the campaign trail, including the final leg of Belinda Teh’s 4,500 kilometre walk, the launch of The Broken Hearted documentary, the plea video of Dr Colin Clarke and the pro-VAD rally.
We were honoured to work with such an incredible team to make change and create history in Western Australia.

The Birch by Remi Graves
How does it know when to shed skin
How to let go of a part of itself not dead
or damaged simply departing to make room for more of it.
How does it know when to drop the layer
it has been growing on the deepest inside
since the beginning of beginnings
It’s newborn bark - the brown of fresh flesh - is old too, stemming from the core of its trunk.
New to the touch of air.
Unburied fibre that willingly let go
of its thinness is now asked to be thick,
despite its tenderness.
Asked to spread itself around itself
and protect everything from root to tip.
It seems they grow out of their skin and into themselves,
never crying over the layers spilt.
Rejoicing instead in the stretch marks left by the departure.
The birch will not be rushed.
Its ancient patience means bark might wait
140 summers to see the light.
And still it is unbothered by the time it takes.
Does not beg to know when light will kiss its outside.
And knowing that it will fall once being born
it cries nothing but beauty still.
How did we learn to make paper from trees
but miss entirely / how to be still and unrushed
That we gain we lose.
That what is to come is in us from the start.
That we should dance
the peeling off of layers with grace.

Christmas we are told, is all about family.
But what about when that’s not true for you What if you don’t have those relationships
Christmas can feel anything but merry & bright.
Along with Birthdays, it’s another punctuation mark in the year when the pain of estrangement spikes.
You are allowed to feel sad , to feel angry, to feel disillusioned, to wonder how the f*ck you got to this point. You don’t have to rush yourself out of that space no matter how much people want you to.
You’re also allowed to feel happy without guilt, you’re allowed to be okay with your situation & not faux soul search because all eyes are on you. You have permission to be proud of yourself for stepping away from something unhealthy.
Be fierce about your boundaries, clear on who & where your time & energy is going to. Pull up the drawbridge & hunker down if that feels right, or whack on your Christmas jumper & throw yourself into it all.
There is no right or wrong, there is only this.
Show yourself as much love as you can, as often as you can. Be your own best friend & hold the space for yourself to process whatever you need to.
Do it your way, carve out your unique Christmas, & let the people that love you, love you.
I send you love & wish you the most peaceful Christmas possible. 🎄❤️

Siamo tutti capaci di "guardare oltre"..
La differenza sta nelle azioni compiute appena dopo aver preso coscienza di ciò che troviamo al di là del "recinto". 💙

Rambut panjang buatkan I sangat memilih syampu Dan perapi ye. Satu sebab rambut I mudah gugur, satu lagi rambut I mudah sangat bercabang nak trim memang malas Haha. Tapi lepas I baca label Pantene Micellar charcoal products ni nampak macam menarik ya sebab ianya rangkaian produk rambut yang ada pro vitamin B5 Dan kaya dengan antioksidan yang bertindak untuk membersih secara lebih mendalam Tanpa penyingkiran setiap helaian rambut. Tanpa paraben, tanpa pewarna, tanpa silikon Dan buang kotoran pada kulit kepala. Sangat lembut untuk kegunaan harian. Boleh dapatkan di watsons ya.

The festive season is beautiful. And it can be challenging. Triggering. It can be a time of remembrance. Longing.
I’m sending love to all beings who are currently trying to heal from the things they don’t discuss. Those who are grieving - your capacity to love is strong. Those who have chosen to release trauma patterns - this time of the year encourages enormous processing. Those who are choosing to do the festive season sober - you got this.
How do you find self love during trying times
You ache from being lonely.
You look in the mirror and see God.
Be gentle with yourself.
Когда воспоминания богаты на воспоминания, ими хочется поделиться.
Неповторимый, харизматичный, фееричный
Одна из самых любимых композиций “Go Gentle”
Когда-то лет 10 назад мы с дочкой увидели фото Робби с его собакой -хаски. У нас уже была Берта, а дочка сказала, что хочет такую же послушную и умную ( наша была своенравная) ! И она сделала это! Robbie Williams-Френк Синатра #robbiewilliams #gogentle #фанатыроббиуильямса
So I’m having fun can you tell. It’s taking me quite a long time to feel super comfy within myself to come out loud and proud with all the things I want to teach about sales and building relationships and growing businesses. I’ve got that ‘I feel freeeeee...’ feeling and it feels fantastic! Big huge gratitude and thanks to @cora.darlington and @bigchangesmallsteps for their daily coaching, cuddling and nudging of me out into the world to make sure I do for myself what I do so well for my clients!

✨Gentle Goes It✨ “Parenting is a path of maturation and growth if we dare to learn more and teach less.” Naomi Aldort ‘Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves’
During a difficult moment while communicating with my teenager - I try to embrace curiosity and the student mind. Not easy, when I think both him and I should already know better (in fact, yesterday, please!) Go Gentle dear parents and caregivers✨ 📷: @agratefulheartphotography 🙏🏽💛
We all know this quote & it is so relevant now! The last few weeks of the school year are here & the celebrations of upcoming festivals are in full swing .... but, it also a time of change for the students. Some students are able to breeze through these changes, while others struggle. Those students struggling let us know in all manner of ways. Take care & go gentle. #endofschoolyear #behaviourguidance #behaviormanagement #gogentle
