I’m Angry – Here’s Why

February 28, 2019

As a Highly Sensitive Person I need more Sanctuary in my life than non-HSPs.

What does that mean?

I love, love, love time on my own.

I love spending time sitting on the grass, walking through the local nature park, staring at the ocean, floating in the pool, allowing my thoughts to wander.

I love long soaks in the bathtub; curling up with a blanket and a warm cup of tea; food that nourishes my body and soul in equal measure.

I love the vitamins I take daily; my bed; my reading glasses that allow me to dive deep as the words jump off the page of the book I’m reading.

I love the crystals beside my bed, which no-one else sees or uses, that help me connect with what I know to be true.

I love meditation and journalling and receiving guidance from above.

But I don’t love it when people judge me or say that I’m weird (check out my response to that here).

And I certainly don’t love it when people judge other HSPs for traits that are innate, wound so tightly within their DNA that they couldn’t change them if they tried.

I have a lot to say on this. In fact, I have SO much to say it’s ridiculous.

What’s Love Got To Do With Living An Intentional Year?

February 14, 2019
Helen Joy Butler Valentine's Day quote

Today’s Valentine’s Day.

I’m going to be {perhaps} a little controversial and say that I’m not sure I’m a massive fan of it.

Maybe I’m getting jaded, and old. Maybe it’s because I’ve been married for so many years. Maybe it’s kids and work and the crazy busy society we live in. Maybe it’s because we should, in reality, be showing ourselves love – as well as the people around us love – each and every day of the year.

I have a question (or two!) for you today, on Valentine’s Day, to help you reflect on the love in your life and how it shows up for you.

These questions may make you feel uncomfortable but that’s not my intention. My intention is to give you some space to reflect, think, connect with the love around you – and then do something about it.

If these questions make you squirm a little, I apologise. But I promise I’m asking them for a good reason.

So let’s jump to it.

My 2018 Learnings – To Help YOU in 2019! + Free Online Workshop

My 2018 Learnings - To help YOU in 2019 - Highly Sensitive Person approach - Helen Joy Butler

Here we are, at the end of another year, wondering what the hell happened to the past 12 months.

We all do it, don’t we? We all say “Wow this year went quickly!” but the reality is, if your year was anything like mine it was anything but quick!

At times I felt like I was walking through molasses, getting nowhere fast, yet continuing to push hard in the hope that it would get me through. And of course, that’s where I went wrong isn’t it? Pushing. It got me nowhere fast! It was only when I surrendered to the process that things started to shift for me – and perhaps you too?

One thing I know for sure is that I am not the same woman I was at the start of this year. Far from it! My learnings have all led to one thing – MASSIVE change, personally and professionally.

And that’s what I’d like to share with you today – the changes I’m making in my biz, to help you move forward on your life journey in 2019.

If you’d like listen / watch to hear all about it, head over to this Facebook Live I did yesterday morning. If you’d prefer to skim / read, keep going!
