Kindness

Do you consider yourself a kind person? Kindness; “The quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate”. Seems simple enough to say that we are kind, a lot of us would like to think we are kind as much as we would like to think that others afford that attribute to our personality as well. Kindness…

Life is like the seasons…

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how life is like the seasons. We go through happy days; full of sunshine and light, where things seem to flow a little easier, people are drawn to us naturally, and well, it’s just a little lighter and more summery.  

Unnatural…

If you find it hard to juggle it all and look good doing it, this one is for you! 

For the last couple of weeks, I feel like I’ve been running a marathon, each and every day. Some days it’s a sprint to get the most critical things finished. Some days it just feels like I’m falling further and further behind, I’m chasing my tail, and I’m a little hamster on the wheel of life, churning around and around. And the thing about having a lot on your plate is that the harder you work, the less you seem to achieve! 

Magnify the good, not the bad

Human being’s we are wonderful and complex creatures. For all our brains, power and ability we can often be too smart for our own good. We over think things, magnify the small and insignificant and give into fear more than we care to admit. 

I have been trying to be mindful in my daily life of not getting too absorbed in my own shit and trying not to magnify the bad instead of amplifying the good. When we are being mindful and trying to change a habit it seems to become a big deal in life, am I right

Be your own kind of beautiful

In life, love and work you won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. At some stage in our lives we all realise this, and the sooner we do, the better our lives are. I was lucky to recognise this in my mid 20’s, and as a result, my relationships, friendships and overall self-esteem have been all the better for it. It is a beautiful thing when you just don’t give an F what anyone else thinks about you…

Manage yourself, Master your life

Managing yourself and your expectations of what you think you should be doing and what you are actually capable of doing is an interesting learning in life. When we are Kid’s we are managed by our parents and told when you go to bed, to eat our veggies and to rest when we are stressed.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted

I’m not one to set New Year’s resolutions, I think that you should regularly and consistently be setting new goals all year round so I don’t put much emphasis on New Year resolutions but I do have one goal that I want to develop as a daily habit more than anything. And like anything, getting something to be a habit means taking thoughtful action each and every day until it becomes a habit. 

Just be authentic

Happy New year, it’s been a little while since I last wrote and there has been a couple of reasons; shear end of year exhaustion being the main one. Busy working with clients and busy generally chasing my tail around… Getting me nowhere fast.

The thing is, the main reason I haven’t written in a while is that I was tired towards the end of the year, a few things didn’t go to plan, holidays were a little stressful, a new medication has been making me feel a bit wonky and well I was retreating further and further into myself and tapping out of being at my most authentic self. There were a bunch of little reasons that added up to just feeling a bit Mehhh… 

It begins with you

One of the most important things I am learning in running my own business is just how important self-care is. Putting yourself as your number one priority is not just good for your own health but also crucial for you to succeed in the fast-moving world that is running your own company. 

Choose where your energy goes

I think one of the most brilliant realisations in life is when you get to a point where you stop caring what other people think. I think this can be an issue for men and women but I think that women can let it affect them quiet acutely. We grow up in a world where…
