Dancing on Ice and Gemma Collins. Have some respect!

This has been on my mind since Sunday, and I couldn't really keep it in any longer...  I love Dancing on Ice, it's not even a guilty pleasure, it's just pleasure.  It's a couple of hours I get to spend with my girls, watching something that isn't Disney-related, and...

Planning and Strategising doesn’t work (for me…)

I’ve spent YEARS planning, trying to figure a way out, a way to the next step or the next level. I’ve strangled the life out of planners and notebooks, calculated every penny, scheduled every minute, I’ve gone to the EXTREME And done none of it. I’ve leashed myself...

What ignoring Marie Forleo taught me…

I actually drafted this up nearly a year ago, but I've been playing chicken with my writing... hiding the pieces that shed light onto areas I don't want to look at or acknowledge out in daylight. Well, no more... so here it is... Anyone who's anyone running an online...

An Apology

This is not going to be easy, but it needs to be done.  There’s a young girl who I feel I need to apologise to.  For a long time, I reacted to things happening in my life, and I didn’t react in the best ways.  I spent a long time allowing other people’s...

Day One – Starting Over

I have big dreams, goals and ambitions. I want a big life. But at the minute I feel like I'm sinking at the bottom of Harvey's first "this", or at least I feel like I am. So I'm making changes. Change 1 - sort out my mornings. Mornings are hard, especially when it's...

This is not Terrigenesis!

(Ref: Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) We don’t just wake up one day with these awesome new powers that will change our lives forever, once we figure out how to use them. Real life works the opposite way - we spend our days learning these new skills, each day building...

Nine years later…

I feel like everything's coming undone, in a good way... 9 years ago, I was signed off work with stress related insomnia. At the time, I was a single mum to a 2-year-old, working full time, with a 2-hour commute each day. I'd beaten myself up trying to be, do and have...

The best types of lists to write

OK, so you’ve heard all kinds of things about all kinds of lists… to-do lists are the most prominent ones, where you write out a bunch of stuff that you need to do, then go about your day ticking stuff off the list.  But what if there were other lists, more important...

Envy is usually spoken of as a bad thing...but why? Envy is not a bad thing.  Use it wisely! Envy is a great thing when you change the way you think about it. Envy can teach/show you what you want Envy can remind you of the person you thought you could be before you...

Getting seen on Pinterest without much content

"I want to get my business seen on Pinterest, but I've only just started my blog" "How do I get people to click to my site from Pinterest?" "I'm saving stuff to Pinterest all the time but I'm still not getting anyone on my blog" You need to create your own content to...

What I learned from being stuck in my own head

You know we're our own worst enemy, right?  Our minds like to 'protect' us by giving us the worst case scenario for whatever new thing we try to do. That thing we call fear or anxiety. Our brains panicking and convincing us that we can't or shouldn't do that thing...
