Do Yourself a Favour – Let Go!

Do Yourself a Favour – Let Go!

This weekend I attended a Forrest Yoga Workshop at Equilibrium Yoga Centre in Peterborough. I spent five hours on Saturday doing yoga, and then another three on Sunday. Suffice to say; I don't know which area of my body aches the most. But aside from learning more about this intensely physical form of yoga, I was inspired by the theme…

Where’s the Bullshit Button When You Need One?

Where’s the Bullshit Button When You Need One?

I like to think I live my life in a pretty authentic manner. I don’t pretend to be anyone else; I don’t pretend to like things just because their ‘on trend’, and I don’t surround myself with people who I wouldn’t jump in front of a bus for. But the truth is we live in a world that is led…

Feeling the Holiday Blues

Feeling the Holiday Blues

If there’s one thing I wanted this blog to be, it’s a place for reality. And these past few weeks reality truly hit me. During July I had an incredible trip to Canada to visit my Dad. Not only was it emotional because I hadn’t seen him for so long, but it was also a massive eye opener to a…

Cancel the Pity Party – It’s Time for a Pep Talk

Cancel the Pity Party – It’s Time for a Pep Talk

If something dramatic has happened in your life it’s very easy to become a negative nancy and start a pity party for one. But the simple fact is, you have the power to change the way you see a situation. You can either embrace change and take on the new challenge, or put your head in the sand and wait…

The 2016 Library List

The 2016 Library List

In 2016 I was adamant that I was going to read one book a month. But thanks to a few radical life changes, I only managed 8, which I'm still pretty proud of considering that the previous year, reading had been a luxury only reserved for holidays. (Yes, I'm usually one of those traditional book readers who has half a…

It’s Time to Talk About January…

Of all the months in the year, January always feels like an unwanted guest at a party. Nobody looks forward to it arriving, and when it does appear we try to ignore it as much as possible in the vain hope that it leaves as quickly as it arrived. Blame it on ‘blue Monday’ or the fact that our purse…

2016 – Lessons Learned and Journeys Taken

2016 – Lessons Learned and Journeys Taken

Well, it’s safe to say that 2016 will certainly not go down in the history books as a quiet year. While worldly we’ve lost legends and seen politics cause controversy, I spent my year stepping away from a long-term relationship and finding my own feet. I won’t bore you with the gory details, (or give my haters the satisfaction), but…

The Facebook Break-Up…

The Facebook Break-Up…

Last month I split up with Facebook. Nope, it wasn’t a cautious ‘de-activate’, and I might be back if I change my mind; it was a deadly serious, no-fucks-given, goodbye, I want you out of my life. And wow does it feel good. I had been off the platform and in-active since February. But full-scale deletion is an extreme -…

Why Can’t You Have it All?…

Why Can’t You Have it All?…

I once had a female colleague tell me that women cannot have it all and that you have to decide between having a career and being a mother. Yes, you read that right, a woman told me that I could not have it all – to say my blood boiled would be an understatement. You see, it’s not just my…

I haven’t Found My ‘Thing’ Yet…

I haven’t Found My ‘Thing’ Yet…

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and how you do it – Maya Angelou   If there’s one question that I’ve longed to have banned in schools, it’s “What do you want to do when your older?” Because at 28 I’m still no closer to knowing than I was 10 years ago. And to be honest, I don’t…
