Knowing When It’s Time To Forgive

Being able to forgive someone or a group of people takes time and effort. It’s not unusual for forgiveness to take years, especially if the pain (your emotions are the key here) has been huge. We are emotional creatures and as such the larger the pain the more hurt and angry we become. And on…

Conceive, Believe, Achieve

August 2016, I began writing my latest book, book number 4; “Suck It Up… Or Change; If you want a better life, YOU create it”. I know, the title is a little harsh but sometimes going in hard reaps rewards. Anyway, before I digress, the point of sharing this was that I’ve been asked several times…

And We Had Fun, Fun, Fun

This post is a little bit of reminiscing and also a timely reminder of fun times and the importance of making time to have fun. It was June 2016 when I had the pleasure of being a ‘Real Women’ model for Anna Perra at Rodney Stoke Inn and what super fun we had! Not only…

Waiting To Exhale… 5 Things To Consider When Seeking Your Tribe

Life does not always feel fair. There are challenges at every corner with work, relationships, health and wealth creation. We seem to be constantly waiting to exhale, to breathe again. But what if we could breathe regardless of the circumstances? What if we could choose to breathe in faith and breathe out doubt? I remember…

The Beauty Of Confidence

Some time ago I began following the journey of Katie Piper and for anyone reading this article that hasn’t heard of her you must visit her site Katie Piper Foundation. Firstly, the words I wish to use to describe Katie are: phenomenal, strong, beautiful, confident, courageous, role model… and they’re just my initial experience of this mighty young…

If Not Now, When?

If not now, when? Now there’s a question…  You think about making changes in your life. You have dreams and hopes yet to be discovered. You want to maximise your time here on planet earth. And yet… nothing seems to get done to bring the desired change. Procrastination, lack of self-belief, a lack of confidence, a distinct lack…

Getting Past Fear

I had the pleasure of listening to a podcast this week with Brian Mayne talking about positive thinking and the impact we can have on what we do based on how we think and feel. His message was about successful people being focused on what they wanted and that, that related to them wanting to be their best. Fear, on…

Habits That Breed Success

What is a habit? A habit is behaviour or a set of behaviours you automatically do, without thinking and often without conscious intention. Some typical examples are driving your car (most of your actions are not thought through, they are done through being consciously competent), biting your fingernails or flicking your hair. So how can…

Expel Procrastination!

You wake up, today’s the day you are going to take on the world, you are going to make your mark and be all that you are meant to be… But hold on, you’ve got to prepare breakfast, do the washing, drop the kids to school or make your way to the office. In fact…

Be A Risk-Taker

This post, I wanted to focus on risk taking. Why? Because for a long time, it has been said that women are risk adverse; that women don’t like to take the leap of faith or believe anything good will come out of it. I disagree wholeheartedly. I believe that women can, do and will take…

Inspired Living

I’ve been reminiscing with a friend of mine about the 2012 Olympics here in the UK. It was such a joyful time. The vibe and excitement captured the nation. I saw sports I didn’t even know existed (I know, where have I been?!) and I spoke to people who weren’t sports fans but who thoroughly enjoyed…

It’s All About Time…

It’s all about time. Time is something I consistently hear complaints about, “there’s not enough time in the day”, “time goes too quickly”, “There should be more hours in the day”, “I’m constantly rushing”. Well, how does time show up for you? I believe there is always enough time for the things you want to do if they are important enough. After all,…
