Play Away!


Being playful helps me to deal with all manner of challenges in my life. When I view whatever it is I am facing into with playfulness, so many more possibilities open up to me. In this week’s episode of the Untaming Femininity Podcast, Migena Gjerazi and I talk about the perks and pitfalls of playfulness. I would love to know how being playful helps you? Tune in for our weekly dose of depth, lightness and heartfelt shares!



I am the cartwheel that dances with life 

I am up I am down, I am bliss I am strife

I have colourful, loveable imagination

Capturing feeling with every rotation

Grasping so high and spinning so free

My soul is mischievous, twirling with glee

Sometimes I land with a bump on the ground

But spring to my feet as I hear my heart pound

Embracing the impact and flipping it round

And turning it into a beautiful sound

Spinning and brimming with night and with day

Propelling myself into life come what may

Rolling, unfurling my energy’s rife

I am the cartwheel that dances with life

  1. Playfulness is the magic ingredient that turns a dog walk into a leisurely adventure, ingredients into a creative meal, etc. Can I beat my own time hanging out the laundry? Or juggle 3 tomatoes? Or figure out how to send a hug through the mail? I texted my sister today to get my grandma’s recipe for sweet pickles, then made a jar from my surplus cucumbers. Her pickles were the best, one of my most treasured childhood memories. I can’t wait until they’re ready. 🙂
