My vision for Nourished Forces is an easy one. I wish to support and teach First Responders to nourish their mind, nourish their body and nourish their spirit.

I want to empower them to take control of their emotional and physical health for the better, inspire them to choose the best version of their life and support them on their path to finding their true self again, beneath the fog that becomes the reality within their area of expertise.

First Responders have partners, children, family and friends. I know, first hand, how hard it is to be that person to someone who serves their community or country and the toll it can take physically and emotionally. These special people need to be nourished. This is a place for them to discover how to do this, see they are not alone and pick up some tips and tricks to support themselves and their loved one/s.

We as humans all have our demons, experiences and insecurities effecting our lives. We all need nourished bodies, nourished minds and a nourished spirit to be the best version of ourselves, releasing the things which no longer serve us and are weighing us down. If you wish to be empowered, inspired or supported this site is for you.

I offer you my personal experiences past and present and my personal opinions, both good and bad for people to read along with in the blog. It may be confronting and raw and I make no apologies for that, if it’s not for you- simply don’t read it. I write it because some of you need to know you not alone with your demons and I hope by sharing mine and how I manage them you may be empowered to try some of my strategies. We all dance with shadows but that dance does not have to be an ugly one.

This is a new site and I have LOTS of little projects and ideas which will make appearances in the near future. I intend of having several products for sale as well guest appearances from several different experts and all of these things have the same objective- To support your mind, body and spirit.

I do not have a section for you to leave comments in the blog, because at no time do I wish this space to become a negative one. If you have an issue with something I write, contact me personally. You are also welcomed to contact me regarding topics you wish me to discuss.

I am not a free loving hippy who is about to break into a little ditty on my guitar and cover you with moon dust. I don’t even have a guitar and if I had moon dust, I wouldn’t share it with you! I am just like you, and I believe we who serve form a large community and we need to support each other, not destroy each other or stand by and watch each other spiral out of control. So come and stand with me and let’s fix this shit, cause if we don’t fix ourselves no one else is going to do it for us!
