Learning something new

"I can't understand why I can't do it! I should be an expert by now!" That was me, crying my eyes out in the maternity ward. Unable to get my newborn son to latch on to my breast. He was my third baby. Each baby had started breast feeding the same way - my inverted

Learning to adjust

This came up on my Facebook memories. It was my first day in Paris, before meeting my daughter for our two week holiday together. She had been singing her way around Spain and I had been camping at a beach in Australia with the rest of the family. The day before this, I had left


It's amazing how motivating some black circles with ticks inside can be! Ever since I got to almost a full screen for the first time (a week or two ago) I make myself go EVERY day. I want another full screen. This week it's been wet, grey and rough. I've been a bit tired. I've

Doing nothing

Doing nothing is the hardest thing when it's not a regular practice! I'm practicing 5-10 minutes of doing nothing every day at the moment. That's not reading, not having a coffee or water, not knitting. It's not looking at my phone or TV. It's doing no-thing!! I sit on my back step and watch the

Questioning myself

Sitting in my car, I watched the sky darken over the ocean, observing the rhythms of nature, summer solstice approaching, feeling the energies shifting. It has been a very challenging month. One where I have questioned myself deeply – personally and professionally. Am I fit to do the work I do? What do I really

Almost a published author!

In just a few days I'll officially be "a published author"! In a year full of surprises and plans gone astray, this wasn't even a glimmer of an idea at the start. We talk about planning as if having a plan will ensure smooth sailing. If we have a plan, we know when we're on

I’ve been pretty quiet on here lately

I've been pretty quiet on here lately. Lots of things happening in the background. My Dad had more surgery - and recovered well. My daughters had birthdays. I've been a bit up and down, like the weather really! (Variable weather and big seas have meant not quite as much swimming as I'd like.) BUT... Clients

I’m a new person

On the outside, she looks happy, confident, fit and healthy. She’s crushing it in her business. She gets amazing results for her clients and is highly respected in her profession. She’s always got a cheeky remark, a ready smile. She looks like a model. She sat on the chair, eyes flashing as she snapped, “My

I’m not capable of creating a successful business

I'm not capable of creating a successful business. That's what one of my clients said to me last week. She had always been financially provided for - firstly by her father and then by her husband. Last year she got divorced. Money was always an issue growing up. Her parents fought over money and there

Are you being seen?

Can you see the goanna? So often in business, it's easy to cruise along, not rocking the boat, growing slowly and staying almost invisible - just like this goanna! You do all the courses, amassing enough certificates to paper the walls - but they're filed away in a drawer. You might be frightened of speaking
