Mother, Children’s Author, Writer and soon to be Counsellor.
Here’s what I can’t fit into an Instagram bio..
Firstly, let me say thank you so much for being here. You may have come from Instagram @myfeelingsmatter or Facebook @Sara Stace or you may have read my children’s book My Feelings Matter. Either way hello and I do hope my online space can serve you.
Creating through writing and making things has always been part of who I am. Along with listening to other people’s stories about who they are. What makes you become alive? Why are you here? Let’s not just share about how busy you are, tell me what your heart and soul long for? Share with me what is troubling you. I am listening.
I hope if people talk about me in the years to come, they will say “she made me feel heard” if nothing else. That will make me fulfilled. I dream of holding space for women and children all over the world. Empowering people to live their best life. In their own way, being who they are and feeling heard. How? Well thanks to technology I hope to take my stories and hold space for others to tell theirs soon. So, stay tuned!
Being a mother to two beautiful boys keeps me on my toes. They have an energy that I am not sure I will ever be able to keep up with. I’m sure many of you parents out there will relate! But parenting also comes with lessons daily on how to let go and be more in the moment. This is priceless and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am gentle by nature and sensitive at heart, I appreciate the softness of life. Put me by a stream with the silence of nature and I’m in heaven. But this is real life and I can’t always be there so as you can imagine the masculine energy in the house throws me off centre often. I break into pieces and then am put back together by love, grace, gentleness with myself and time.
My family lives a life that we have carved out intentionally to be as un-busy as we can and to be as least demanding as it can. I have a deep need to let my boys have experiences that they can only get through being un-scheduled and being a child. I space things out and regularly let go of things off in our life if it is creating stress or not fitting in with our ideals. This took a long time to learn how to do this. I hope I can help you do the same if we get to work together.
Recently I have just started home schooling my eldest son who had trouble fitting in to your typical schooling system. After two years I realised it wasn’t for him and pulling him out of school has been one of the most eye opening and positive life changing choices that I have ever made. Check out my blog post on this if you feel you have a child that also struggles at school.
My first book My Feelings Matter was created for my eldest son who is on the Autism Spectrum. We had many hard days trying to learn and understand such big emotions when he could not yet verbalise them. I knew if I could get someone to create visual images that were simple and child friendly that I could help him identify how he may be feeling, then maybe we could avoid the dreaded meltdowns that came with frustration. I knew I could put into words how us adults could assist their child or student and how the child may possibly be feeling, and this is how the book came about!
I am thrilled to have it at the stage where it is being shipped to you guys all over the world. I truly feel that it will help so many children and families be able to communicate and connect with more ease.
