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 - 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!

The Three Stages Of Parenting A Sensitive Child

December 13, 2018

Exhaustion and sensitivity is a recipe for disaster - Helen Joy Butler

Many, many moons ago I became a mum.

Like most mums I was overjoyed when our beautiful boy was born.

He was known as the big boy on the block, being one of the more ‘sizeable’ babies in the maternity ward at the time – no mean feat given you can blow me over in a strong wind!

Mothering came quite naturally to me. I thank my older sister for that, for bringing her two beautiful daughters – my nieces – into the world while I was in my teens. Changing nappies, burping a baby, cleaning up after them, entertaining them, really wasn’t a problem for me. Of course at that time I wasn’t privy to the sleep deprivation or boobs the size of small countries or deflecting questions like ‘When are you having another one?’. I just enjoyed my nieces, caring for them under the tutelage of my sister, mum and grandma, and handed them back when it was time to leave.

Like most new mums, when our son was born I doted on him. And to be honest I still do, 13 years later. But if I reflect on our journey over the past 13 years there are three very obvious stages to our growth together, as two sensitive souls in a not-so-sensitive world.

Stages which have impacted my ability to parent our son because of where I was at on my own journey as a highly sensitive mum.
