Blow Your Own Trumpet – Part One

First thought…………….Cringe!!! So long as we continue to associate blowing our own trumpet with being boastful or big headed, full of ourselves and showing off we will continue to hide, belittle, excuse and minimise who we are and what we are capable of in the world. I belong to a support group which loosely follows

A Time for Giving Thanks.

I can’t believe how many people wrinkle their noses when I ask if they like this time of year; if they are looking forward to Christmas? “Not really,” they shrug. How sad that we have this opportunity for a mid-winter celebration and yet so many, like me, would rather not be facing it at all.

Set SMART goals

How SMART are you?

Don’t give up on your goals yet? When we decide something needs to change in our lives we are far more likely to achieve it if we set ourselves a goal. But you probably already know that! Did you know that it also helps if that goal is SMART? This simple idea will help you hone

Do One Thing Today

It’s simpler than you may think. As I sat down to mediate this morning I felt heavy,  achey and a bit down.  I was aware of the part of me that wants to give up because it’s all too hard,  that sometimes wants a different life.  She doesn’t want to have to keep doing the

What Blocks Us From Achieving Real Change In Our Lives, Part 2 – Acceptance

When someone first suggested to me that I “ Just Accept” I thought they’d gone mad. Were they asking me to give in, submit, accept defeat and condone something?  How wrong I was. Acceptance does not mean we are some sort of doormat who just rolls over and takes whatever is happening to us.  It

What Blocks Us From Achieving Real Change In Our Lives, Part 3 – Kindness

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain When I read this quote I softened a little inside,  I get what it means at a soul level,  I feel it with my heart.  This is the place we need to come from towards ourselves. If you have been

Why Do We Talk About the Negative In EFT?

“Best not to think about it.” “Put it behind you.” “Don’t dwell on it.” “Keep yourself busy.” “Have a drink and forget about it.” These are all common responses to something unpleasant happening to us. We think that by taking our focus off the problem we will somehow forget it and overcome it. If we
