The wonderings of an overcrowded mind… 

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...

You can’t show up like that!

You can’t show up like that!

No, no no…. You can’t show up like this. You need to be your best self before you show up. Well, I fucked that up! Cos here I am, Showing up As I am Not perfect. Perfectly imperfect Practically imperfect in most ways (not very Mary Poppins, is it?) I’m nowhere near...

Just follow the damn rules!

Just follow the damn rules!

It’s not so difficult, is it? Do as you’re told Do what they say Stay within the lines Just stick to doing what you’re told What’s expected of you Stay in your lane Stick to your pay grade. Don’t do anything above or beyond and CERTAINLY don’t dare question anything...

Walk the path

Walk the path

By going through the motions, holding fast - one step, then the next. Showing up every day for the damn thing that needs to be done. Little by little, but holding fast, whether the results are showing up yet or not. It’s not hard. It just needs to be done, and I’m...

Sometimes you really need that low…

Sometimes you really need that low…

It’s all well and good chasing those highs in life, and hoping, wishing and fighting for a life that’s all sunshine, rainbows and flowers. But fun fact about rainbows; they don’t happen without rain. And the flowers don’t grow either. In fact, research shows that when...

I wish I could be bored

I wish I could be bored

“I’m bored!” Was pretty much the chorus of my childhood… I’m sure my mum got sick of hearing it, but there it was “I’m bored!” I was a loner though, I didn’t like playing out with the other kids, I wanted to be inside. I didn’t particularly want them at my house all...

Sometimes, I’m just a really clever idiot.

Sometimes, I’m just a really clever idiot.

It’s what causes me to overcomplicate things in my life. Something that could be SUPER SIMPLE ends up needing a degree to figure it out. Or something that could be done in 2 steps, takes me 5. Sometimes, it’s having facepalmingly obvious “realisations” Like when you...

Fear Itself

Fear Itself

Alright, I was obsessed with Buffy back in the day, and still love to watch the reruns now… so, lemme ask you this? Do you remember the episode “Fear Itself”? Season 4 Episode 4, now, if you never watched Buffy what the hell have you been doing with your life?...

Motivation vs. Motive

Motivation vs. Motive

What’s the difference? Why is that important? Look for your MOTIVE Motivation is Bullshit, I covered that one a few years ago. We spend our lives waiting for motivation… because when it does, we’ll finally hit the gym, lose weight, go that place, do that thing, etc,...

Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do

Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do

People always say that to me. It’s like a warning. Oh Please, I spend my life doing things you wouldn’t do! It's a warning to behave myself. Act according to their definition of how life should be led. Not one thing about the way they live their life appeals to me....

You gotta let go sometime

You gotta let go sometime

It’s safe, right? Holding onto the safety net. The rope that balances you, keeps you steady… catches you when you fall. It’s safe Its safe to stay where you are so things don’t get messed up Its safe to keep doing the same things on repeat because you know the outcome...

Only self-deprecating people are good people…

Only self-deprecating people are good people…

“Really, I’m not that good.” “It’s just a fluke… “ “No, really, you’re better than me! “ “Don’t be silly, you’re amazing. “ “You’re so much better at it than me! “ “Oh my gosh, no, please, stop… “ No, really, please STOP!!!! For the love of all things lovable, STOP...

It’s not (just) you, It’s me (too)

It’s not (just) you, It’s me (too)

Do you ever notice that you constantly compare yourself to whoever's nearby? It's not just you, it's me too... in fact, it's a lot of us - the majority of us. We look at those we know, the people we meet, we figure out how old they are, look at what they're doing and...

Hey, I just got your last letter…

Hey, I just got your last letter…

Please stop being boring as hell. That’s not you, that’s not how you talk, and starting with the same thing every time just makes it feel like I’m talking to a stranger every time, and I don’t like it.  Be you, yeah? You know, that crazy thing you do where I call...

Millionaires don’t have a million in the bank

Millionaires don’t have a million in the bank

It’s something I’ve known for, well, ever… but it only recently made sense to me on a conscious level. Millionaires DON’T have a million in the bank. Well, not always. (Some of them definitely, probably do) It’s in investments, properties, stocks, shares etc… not just...
