Journey to Joy

It’s not how you finish the journey but how you handle the journey.
This life will throw your perspective right back  to you. The world we live in is actually an individual reflection of your conscious mind.
Now it’s called a journey for a reason, particularly my Spiritual journey.
My journey of self realisation happened when I was in Treatment getting clean. The amount of Spiritual occurrences during my time in Treatment were insurmountable but it wasn’t until I was at home with technology for the first time in months, I learned what all of these things meant. One day whilst sitting in my back garden I seen the most stunning dragonfly, that seemed to dance around me. One hour later as I sat at my laptop wondering what all this meant and just like that a series of synchronised events and my Spiritual journey began.
When I hear it’s a cruel world or life isn’t fair, I simply remember all I’ve been through and how I survived 100% of my bad days. Let me explain..
Homelessness, drug addiction, depression, suicide attempts are just a few of the events that almost broke me but didn’t. In fact i say Thank You to all of my struggles as i do my happiness because no matter what the event, you’re going to learn something from it.
Tomorrow I bury my beautiful Daddy and there are so many things I am grateful for to have such a Father. So yes at times events will happen that may or may not throw you but just pause for a minute, meditate and think how do I want to handle this. It is such a wonderful way to live and in my opinion it’s a wonderful world. How do you see your world?

If not now when!

If youre expecting a post feeding into the fear of whats going on right now, sorry to disappoint you but just like “The life of Brian” I always look on the bright side of life…i hear you whistling along! This is a post dedicated to my friends who too call this beautiful planet home. It only takes a photo of the Earth to bring me to tears at the pure beauty of it.

Maybe now when we finally have some time on our hands, which is what youve always asked for right? Well now that you do, what are going to do with it? I am in full appreciation mode today and i find myself asking the big questions. My attitude of gratitude is for all of the things, people, places, circumstances that I once took for granted but now I feel privileged to have this life. To live in such a beautiful world. This Earth, right here, where your sitting your little hiney is heaven. A grown up playground to be enjoyed and experienced.

Not just the big stuff but what about the simple things like a hug, an embrace from a loved one, going out with your mates. Whatever floats your boat ⛵ I see us coming out the other side with such a higher state of consciousness and that makes me so happy. I look forward with love and what strikes me as so profound is, I’ve been talking about how we’ve become so disconnected between social media and our communities in general and now here we are but instead of complaining about it, instead of giving lots of “I told you so’s” Let us all be grateful for what we do have. I have never felt more grateful for the internet and my broadband connection.

Yes, we may be in isolation but let us celebrate the time we have at home with family and not further isolate ourselves by fear mongering and scaring the bejaysus out of people. We can skype, FaceTime, pick up the phone and return to community by shopping for those that cannot leave the house or making sure that those alone are not left forgotten. Let us the generation that are living through this, love through this and let us set an example for generations to come that we were the ones that changed this planet for the better. This is our home, let us make it so and respect and love her just as she loves us. – Vivienne

Make sure to catch my podcast today celebrating Gen X. I really enjoyed today’s show and had to get back to my writing today!


Pick your Knows


Happy St. Paddys Day guys!!

Gen X we have made it. We are having our moment to shine and I am taking full advantsge of that in todays show! We are no longer the forgotten gnerstion. I a so proud to be a Xennial!!

In the midst of me having a good ol giggle Im also challenging myself with a few of Oprahs Life Quesrions. Right now more than ever we have some time on our hands and maybe just maybe we will come out of this on the other side by appreciating all that we do have and having an attitude of gratitude snd not taking things for granted. I personally will not be feeding into the fear by talking about it as many others are doing it for me. I just want to spread the love and give you a laugh.

Normally we are so busy with our lives but now that we have the time on our hands we are doing more of the things that us Gen Xs were so good at eg..making our own fun..damn we were so good at that. I came to my own self realisation on todays show with how I grew up and what I loved about it.

Isolation to me growing up was finally having time to myself apart from all the other rugrats I had to share my bedroom with..in bunk beds I may add. But man oh man did we have it good and I am so proud of my generation and by God am I going to drag this out for as long as I can.

Until the next time…Keep listening and let me kinw your thoughts and reviews. Without your reviews I may become a forgotten generation myself. Dont do thst to me and take the time to support your Wide Awake Gal.

To medicate or not to medicate that is the question 💊


Hands down THE best live podcast to date 📅

There seems to be so many contrasting views as to what an addict is. Having gone through addiction and getting clean I encounter so much snobery around somebody taking medication. So one of my sisters brought up this question in regards to her Spirituality. She was judged on her Spiritual Entrepreneurship because of her Post partom depression and has to take medication. 

In my opinion how can anybody call themselves spiritual and judge someone else. Never mind the fact that judgement is something that is frowned upon in the Spiritual world!

I decided to go live on this one as I really wanted real time comments on this one. WE spoke about CBD and how it has changed so many lives and my story of the Granny who rocked my world by souping up her cups of tea with a load of CBD “No wonder I was feeling great” She said as she winked at me in the local Vape shop.

I really did come from both sides of the discussion with today’s show and it is a difficult one for sure. Yes addiction is rampant and I think its more about minding your own side of the street and your own business. Being mindful of your own life and not minding what others think. As long as you are looking after your health then it should not concern anybody but you and you GP!!

Big pharma reared its ugly head in the conversation with one of my listeners commenting “They just want to keep you addicted”

So now it’s over to you. Once you listen to the show make sure to head on over to Podchaser to leave your comments and of course your love in a Review.

Big announcement also on the show today so as always until the next time keep listening and for now… That’s all folks!!
