Don’t Give Up

All you history buffs will hopefully understand why I included the photo above but actually it was the photo below, found on Facebook, which compelled me to write this article. I know I am writing as much to remind myself as to encourage you. I need inspired to keep going when times are tough, when

There is hope.

So….. it all caught up with me this morning. I woke up feeling down and negative. I could feel the whispers of depression-past calling to me, willing me to trash my life.  I wanted to lie down in it’s comfortable familiarity, to surrender to the insistent voice, let it engulf me and tell me just

Blow Your Own Trumpet – Part Three

After making our lists someone in my group, see Blow Your Own Trumpet – Part One, suggested we blow our own trumpets. “We could read our lists to each other and then tell each other something we are good at or have achieved or are proud of, Blow our own trumpet’s.” Argh! A cringe took

Change Is Always Possible

Blow Your Own Trumpet – Part Two

Following on from Part One,  I want to encourage us all to blow our own trumpets more. Sitting in that group last week listening to how amazing and talented we all are I marvelled, and I realised these things: We are not being arrogant or self-important when we blow our own trumpet if we are

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

Another Way Is Possible

There’s One Big Reason the 1,000’s of Reasons Don’t Work.

Apparently creating a blog title with Top Ten or some other numbered list is the best way to get your blog posts noticed and read.  Many of these lists provide us with useful facts and information or they may simply be entertaining.  For example I was delighted recently to find one telling me about where

What are Limiting Beliefs?

“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.” Tony Robbins Like chains limiting beliefs can confine and restrict us, they contain us within a certain way of seeing the world which defines what we think,  how we behave and feel and the way in
