Are you feeling it too?

 

If you spent any time over social media over the last few days you might have seen the posts about: ”only six months of 2019 left!” and “2020 is going to be here in just short six months”, with the underlying message being: ”what the hell are you doing with your life”?

 

I wonder if that triggered you? Or maybe you are exactly where you want to be, on track…

My coach made me do it

About a month ago I had a call with my coach and she challenged me to take a step back from by business and practice what I preach.

 

She challenged me to take a breather, stop creating, and stop pushing.

 

She asked to review what’s working and what’s not working.

 

I took time to reconnect with what brings me joy, what I love doing and what I am passionate about.

 

The hardest part…

Coming back to love

A friend once said to me: “I always wear matching underwear.” How ridiculous I thought. Who has the time and energy (not to mention money!) to actually manage this in real life? Yes, I have a couple of matching sets, but let’s be honest, they were rarely matching on me.

My closets were full of clothes, yet hardly anything fitted me properly and I used my bedroom as storage.

I was…

What’s your life purpose?

Ever since I was little I was a little different. I liked to play alone, I liked to help around the house, and even then I didn’t have a sweet tooth:)

 

Ever since I was little I had an old soul, I think. I wanted to find my purpose in life. I questioned career advice given to me at school.

I had never been drawn to any of the traditional jobs…

Happy Festive Period

You may be just wrapping up your work year, before you head home to spend the next few days with your family and loved ones.
I truly hope and wish for you that the last few days of 2018 will be filled with love, joy and rest.
Btw – in case you missed it, today is officially the first day of Winter and the Winter solstice. It’s the perfect time to…

What’s on your list?

I wonder if you are a fellow “Friends” fan? I must have watched all of the episodes multiple time and they still make me laugh.

 

Do you remember Ros’ laminated list of 5 celebrities who was allowed to sleep with?

 

Today I wanted to share my list, with a difference:) Because we’re not going to talk about sleeping with celebrities, but the experiences I want to have in my life:)

 

How strong are you going to finish?

We’re half way through November (have you heard any Xmas songs on the radio, yet??) so let’s check in and see how you’re getting on with your quarter 4 goals? Are you on target? Are you still working towards meeting your targets?

 

Or maybe you’ve given up already because it was getting too hard? Maybe life got in the way? Maybe you’ve had too many ‘no’s’ on the way?

 

Let me…

What do you want to do when you grow up?

“What do you want to do when you grow up?” my Dad used to ask me with an infuriating regularity. I hated that question because frankly I had no idea what the hell I wanted to do when I grow up. I was too busy being a teenager, having meltdowns and trying to get by at school.

 

The more he asked, the more annoyed I got, because I felt I…

After 12 years I had enough

When I fell into a job in NHS, I thought I was sorted. I had a career for life, with a clear progression path and a pension plan.

After the honeymoon period I started to struggle. I knew I was good at my job and could deliver results, but I felt unsupported, unheard and isolated.

The pressure coming from different directions with conflicting demands became just too much and after twelve…

5 simple self care practices

I’ve got to be honest – the last two months were hard for me – physically and mentally. All I wanted to do was sleep and eat potato crisps, because I had zero energy to cook or even do food shopping. Unfortunately the crisps were not going to help me get through that, so I knew I had to try something different and just be kind to myself.

 

Being kind…
