crafting a life you want to come home to
I had such a great realisation last week. You see, most times when I'm away exploring the world, I never want to come back home. I want to keep going to the next place, the next sight, the next experience. The allure of endless travel always had such a strong pull, one that up until now I always felt sad to leave behind. But not this time. I was actually really excited to come home! This... Read More »
Big Shifts + Jet Planes
I have been meaning to sit down and write ever since I landed back home from Africa. But I haven't had the capacity. Until now. I've been home a week today, and I'm only just now feeling like myself again. It's been a difficult period readjusting to life back home, dealing with the jet lag, and also processing a relationship break up. When it rains, it pours! But I know that the universe... Read More »
escape to paradise
This is my first time sitting back on my computer in a very looong time. I've come back from a little hiatus. Some time out to unwind, chill out and refuel.  My body, and my spirit had been running on empty - yet I didn't even realise it until I stopped. We often don't realise how fried we really are until we have a moment to slow down, remove distractions, and truly BE with ourselves.... Read More »
aquatic adventures
As promised in my last post, more on my underwater experience in Indonesia - this is something I will never ever forget . . . The scene is set on a small island - Nusa Lembongan - off Bali's south east coast. I am submerged 19 meters under the ocean, in a cove called Crystal Bay. I am in a parallel under-water world, feeling like an amphibian (or more accurately, a mermaid) - under the... Read More »
lessons from the island
I just LOVE travelling. For me, it's honestly one of my greatest pleasures. And ironically, it feels like home to me. I just returned from a wonderful trip to Bali, Indonesia. My head is still spinning a little from all the amazing experiences, adventures and conversations I had . . . but I'm going to attempt a little download, Part #1. Perspective is everything. Sometimes we need to... Read More »
the paradox of our time
I find travelling the perfect time for reflection. With travel comes time away from my every-day life, time to just be. No commitments, no appointments, nowhere to rush to, or work to get done. It's a golden time that we don't often get in our busy daily lives. You may have already read the piece below floating around in cyber-space, but I encourage you to re-read it. See what fresh new...

home sweet home
I am Australia bound in T-minus 2 days! It's been a year and a half since I've seen my loved ones - the longest time I've ever been away. It's certainly been hard at times - home-sickness has definitely reared its uncomfortable head. But for the most part, it's been fantastic, and I'm extremely proud of how well I've adapted to life abroad. But it's time, it's time to pay a visit to my... Read More »
taking the plunge
It's been over a year since I made one of the scariest decisions of my life. I bought a one way ticket and took a plane to the other side of the world. My plan was to travel through South America for 3 months, and then go and live in Canada. Beyond that, it was very vague. 'How long was I going to be away for?' No idea. 'Did I know anyone on the other side?' Nope. 'Can I speak... Read More »
your body is your temple
Travelling is one of my biggest passions. I love the adventure that it brings as I journey into the unknown. Exploring new landscapes, cultures, and culinary delights. However eating healthy fresh food while away from home is a constant struggle. One that I experienced on my recent trip. Your body is a temple. When I treat my body with the reverence of a temple, the results are abundant.... Read More »
quality time
I just returned from a fabulous adventure across Canada with my parents. We hadn't seen each other since I left Australia a year ago, and what an incredible reunion we had! It's not often the three of us get to spend time together, just us. Me moving countries obviously created an obstacle, but the other reason is I have a twin sister, so the family catch ups have always been all four of us... Read More »

“This was one of the best decisions I’ve made. The coaching came during a challenging period and helped me to look beyond my current circumstances, redefine my sense of who I am and envision what I wanted in my future.  Julia helped me to identify and define my values which now guide all my decisions. I discovered my strengths and unique gifts that I have to contribute. Reclaiming these qualities gave me the opportunity to see myself in a completely different, more confident and self assured light.  I would highly recommend coaching with Julia. She is the best listener, life cheerleader and guide I’ve experienced.”

“Jules has the ability to listen like you wish your mother would. She lets ideas flow organically and ultimately leaves you wanting to tell her things you may not have otherwise told yourself. Identifying what lights people up is what Jules lives for, it is infectious and she will change the world by doing what she loves, and hopefully allow you to see you can do the same.”
