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.  

Meltdowns… Like a little kindness tap

Meltdowns, we all have them, we all get to a point in our week, month or day when we just starting feeling overwhelmed, and like it’s all a bit too much. This morning I had an epic meltdown – I felt tired… like the world was against me and like it was all too hard… It is not one thing in particular, but a series of things that led to me feeling like this and as the tears followed I allowed myself to just be with it, to roll with it.

I worked half my day from my bed, with a pot of tea, in my Pj’s and with my laptop. I needed to get work done, and that was how it was going to roll, and you know what that’s Ok. 

Helloooo

Startup life often means working from home, which I mainly and for the most part love. I have an office, I don’t have any problems with motivating myself to do my work and if anything the struggle I have is to have better boundaries and stop working so much… and when deadlines are building, and the work is pilling up working from home can be great because you get up, do a work out and then you are straight into your workday. 

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.

Morning…!

As I grow, not older but hopefully wiser I have started to understand the importance of having a good morning routine, I know that sounds like a bit of silly thing to say, but it has become even more critical since I’ve been running my own business. 

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… 

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…

The end…

I have been struggling to reconcile something recently and that is the end of a friendship that ended before I was ready for it too. Sometimes things end, that’s life and sometimes we drift apart from each other in friendships, we go down different paths and have different life goals, but sometimes the end of…

Chase every rabbit down every hole…

Chase every rabbit down every hole… This saying bobbles around in my head on days when I’m pushing against deadlines, working out how to do things, how to reach out to different people in business, be more innovative and how to get through the harder days personally and professionally. I can hear my Dad saying…
