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. 

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… 

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…

Learn to Rest not quit

What no one tells you about entrepreneurship and running your own business is how much you just don’t have an off switch. Clocking on from 9 – 5 is a thing of the past and all you have now is an awake or asleep switch. Which means the majority of the time you are awake, you are in work mode.

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…

We were born to be real, not perfect

The search for perfection is like searching for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… It’s something that will never come because when you seek perfection you just keep chasing one goal after another. Once we achieve one goal we just set the bar higher.. raising the goal, raising the expectation. 

Up and down, Oh Ho Hum

Somedays you just have to laugh life right in the face don’t you… Today is one of those days for me, it started out fabulous, two wonderful clients signed off on big bodies of work, Hurrah. Happy days. And then I jumped into my car after a meeting and ran into a bollard!!! Silly, silly,…

The little things are the big things

I never used to be what I would now call as present in my life. I used to always be planning for the future, preparing for a rainy day, trying to control my life and I’ve had to learn probably in one of the hardest ways that we really only have the here and now.
