Life’s short! Why you should make a moment to remember, today.
Life is short. We all know it. Especially as time seems to (scarily) speed up as the years go by. Days can blur into weeks, into months and even years. In part this happens because we are so caught up in the drama we play out in our own heads, Or absorbed in the private…Read More
What is going on in your brain?
As I sit down to write this weekly missive, it is hard to think about anything else other than the looming coronavirus crisis and the imploding financial markets. Panic is in the air. Easily seen with a quick glance down the aisles of the supermarket (particularly the loo roll aisle ?) and by looking at…Read More

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the things you have to do, Or all the things that you would like to do, but never seem to find the time or energy for? Well, you don’t need to drown beneath a sea of chores, or let your dreams pass you by. There is a way to…Read More
Better than fine: How are you today?
How are you today? Seriously, how are you? When someones asks you that question, what is your automatic response? For most people the answer generally lies along the spectrum of Ok to fine….. Really is everyone OK? Are we all just fine? I know life isn’t always a bed of roses, but surely we can…Read More

Sometimes waiting is a good thing – and why I love my kettle
See this kettle? It is my sons’ biggest pet peeve. They hate this kettle, they have spent years trying to get rid of it. They say it is too slow, they say it is stupid. They think I am stupid for making us use it when I could so easily buy an electric kettle that…Read More
Shopping? Keep your values in mind.
I am big on the idea of living by your values. Making decisions based on things that are important to you, rather than worrying about convention or what other people think. I am usually pretty good at this, but Christmas can be a challenge, those retailers and advertisers are GOOD at their job, right? Yesterday…Read More
Why you need to just DECIDE!
I found myself dithering a LOT this past week. It was disconcerting and annoying. I spent way too much time umming and ahhing between potential topics for a workshop I am launching soon. It took up my brain space for almost the whole week. In the time it took me to decide between ideas, I…Read More
Everything is a choice – you don’t HAVE to do anything!
It’s all too easy to dismiss an idea as just semantics. But I think NOTHING is just semantics. Words are powerful. Words shape our thoughts, which in turn create the world we see in front of us. Think about the difference to approaching a task or a goal with the thought of “I have to…Read More
Making the days count
I don’t know why I was thinking about this earlier this week but…. I did the maths and figured out that I have lived for 16,090 days — which means all going well I have around another 16000 to live. This sounds like quite a lot But those days do seem to be passing by…Read More
