I’m Angie, and I’m passionate about writing.
What do I write about?
Mostly about life, and how to do it better. I’m interested in finding ways to live that give me more time to do the things that make me happy, like writing, yoga and family, and spending less time swimming upstream.
The things that I try, that I think about and that seem to be more effective than others. For me, at least. Maybe they will work for you too.
As Nietszche famously said:
You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
So what topics can you expect to read about on this blog?
- Writing practices
- Yoga practices
- Manifestation practices
- Spiritual practices
- Parenting practices
You’ll have noticed a lot of practising in the above list. That’s because I regard life as a practice – meaning that I never expect perfection from myself or anyone else, only continued growing, insight and a deeper experience all round. If this approach to living interests you, then linger a litle longer. Let’s get to know one another better.
I’ll go first.
Who am I?
I’m a thirty-something writer, yoga teacher and workshop facilitator. I’m also a mother and partner, and I live in Auckland, New Zealand, in a rickety, slightly off balance house at the edge of a forested cliff stretching down to the sea.
I am a born and bred South African, and I graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of SouthAfrica. Shortly thereafter, in 2007, I became a certified Life Coach.
But my writing passion caught up with me then, I decided to take it more seriously. I completed courses in Creative Writing and Advanced Journalism through the South African Writers College and started writing freelance articles for magazines as well as crime-based short stories, which were published in three different countries. Somewhere along the line I felt inspired to write and produce a children’s meditation CD, which was great fun and certainly different from the crime stories and serious freelance article I wrote for magazines.
Now, I mostly write guest blog posts, as well as articles for my own website. I’m also the Editor of my own publication on Medium, called Post Haste, which is all about conscious living, one choice at a time.
When I’m not writing, I’m usually practising or teaching yoga, spending time with my children or walking. (Actually, I’d rather do anything as long as it doesn’t involve housework or cooking.)
