The wonderings of an overcrowded mind… 

Comparisonitis will permanently kill your joy!

Comparisonitis will permanently kill your joy!

Yep, keep comparing this with that and you’re gonna be a miserable, joyless bastard for the rest of your life. Really, it’s that simple. Let’s take for example all the new movie remakes. If you sit down to watch a remake of a beloved movie from your childhood (we know...

Why are you so keen to keep “passing the time”?

Why are you so keen to keep “passing the time”?

Time does a pretty good job of passing by all on it’s own. Tick follows tock whether you do something with it or not. The Earth continues to spin on its axis, and make its way around the sun. And yet, everyone just wants to “pass the time” while they get from here to...

Sit down. Switch Off. Unplug. Unwind.

Sit down. Switch Off. Unplug. Unwind.

In that order, just take some time. Take some time to detach from everything that’s going on. Step away from the noise, the constant drone of everything and everyone else. Take some time apart. Take some time for you. I promise you it’s the best thing you’ll ever do....

I feel a change in the wind. Don’t you?

I feel a change in the wind. Don’t you?

That’s what happens. Something comes along, happens, and then things are different. They change. When you’re driving along the road, and you can’t go the way you expect to, you divert. Sometimes you follow the diversion laid out in front of you. Sometimes, you just...

You’ve been waiting your whole life for this.

You’ve been waiting your whole life for this.

You, the one who’s been pushing, and pulling and trying tirelessly to survive. You, the one who has struggled to be and do everything. You, the one who’s constantly had all the ideas, and held back… not yet, it’s not time. You, the one who’s walked away again, and...

Snooze your way through life

Snooze your way through life

At least the mornings … I know there are hundreds of articles and studies and people out there telling you that the WORST thing you can do in a morning is hit the snooze button and go back to sleep. It makes sense, doing that puts your body into a new sleep pattern,...

Look in the mirror. What do you see?

Look in the mirror. What do you see?

“Well, Me, obviously, duh!” 🙄 What kind of stupid question is that, really? But stick with me… Look in the mirror. What do you see? You? Is that really you? The version of you that’s in your mind all day? The version of you that walks around in your dreams? The “you”...

Why I Closed My Facebook Group

Why I Closed My Facebook Group

I want to take you back to 2018... so long ago, right? Well, back then I had a Facebook Group called Boost Your Biz using Pinterest - I love the irony of using one platform to promote another, it's not lost on me. It was something I started based on a recommendation...

Confession – I’ve never been fully invested in anything

Confession – I’ve never been fully invested in anything

In order to be really successful at anything in life, you need to be committed and invested. Invested in the end result. You have to be committed to do the work, without the instant gratification. Day in, day out… consistently. You need to be in it for the long haul....

You are not your surroundings!

You are not your surroundings!

It’s the kinda place that if you live there long enough, it drags you down, like quicksand, you just don’t notice it straight away. And the longer you’re there the harder it is to get away. We often hear “don’t forget where you came from” and “remember your roots” as...

What keeps you up at night?

What keeps you up at night?

The weather?The weird sounds? Passing traffic? The neighbour heading out to work? Your lack of progress? The errands list that never ends? All the things you need to do All the things you haven't done All the things you want... The restlessness of your mind That...

A change of pace, and a change of scenery…

A change of pace, and a change of scenery…

That’s the cure to the ills. I reckon this is why people like holidays and the such. I for one, never really have holidays. It’s been 4 years since I last went anywhere, and that was a weekend in a caravan with the family. It was a great weekend, we had fun, spent...

Lessons of the 5k

Lessons of the 5k

Around March time last year, somewhere after the refusal to acknowledge “New Year Resolutions” as a real thing, and further acceptance that I’m getting older and need to actually make some of the improvements I want in my life, I decided to take on the notorious 5km....

He quit his job because of me!

He quit his job because of me!

I wish it were an exaggeration, something to grab your attention, but the fact of the matter is; he quit his job because of me! It’s not as bad as it sounds. Here’s the story… I like to work outside of the house, and I usually hit up coffee shops, or cafes (cliche, I...
