What’s your story?

Storytelling has been around for century’s, since cave men drew on the walls before the English language was a thing.  We all love a good story and no matter what our life’s tale, we can all relate to a story, we all have emotions in common and can all remember once upon a time.

How to create your Vision Board

Visualisation is actually one of the most powerful mind exercises there is.  Seeing things makes them become more real and makes the mind acknowledge them, meaning they will remain in your memory for longer than maybe something you read.

Why wait?

Ok, so we’re alive.  I’m writing this, you’re reading it, we’re thinking, breathing, drinking hot chocolate, we’re very much alive, so what are we waiting for?

Learning to live, again

Can you really change? At almost 40, pretty set in your ways, done the same things the same way for forever, can you really hit the reset button on yourself and start over?  It appears so.

My life’s ambition

So being an ambitious person, I’ve always been one for pushing harder, for wanting to achieve more, for wanting the bigger and brighter things in life, and going above and beyond, certainly in my working life to get what I know I’m capable of.  How age changes things.

Changing lanes, changing lives

Not having enough time is something I’ve always blamed on having children, between playing housemaid, taxi driver and referee, they tend to suck up every last minute of any potential downtime in the day, whilst I’m trying to make it go slower.  We’re all busy in our lives, juggling our commitments and chores, but is […]

Outside of the bubble

So Hans Christian Andersen once said, “To travel is to live”, a quote which still rings true today, and one I take my mind to often.

In a heartbeat

Sitting here writing this on the plane, homeward bound, in the dark, not having the luxury of being able to sleep at 38,000 feet, I’m reflecting on my week in LA, which was pretty amazing.  Lots to see and certainly lots to do, and with the sun hitting 103F at its highest, it was more […]

Am I worthy?

So I’m sitting here, writing this, on a Virgin Atlantic flight, heading to LA, but contemplating where I’m actually going.  Currently at 38,000 feet exactly, and just over 3 hours until we land, I’ve spent most of the trip staring out of the window at the beautiful white cloudy skyline, thinking of the week ahead, […]

Work trip, guilt trip

It’s so tough being torn between the two things that mean the most to you.  Your family and your career.  Always wanting both from a young age, I guess I never did really consider how people did it, how it would work.  Not having parents doesn’t help but I guess I never really did contemplate […]

Once upon a time…

Well who’d have thought it. 15 Years. 15 Years have passed since we boarded that plane, young, free, with not a care in the world, heading to the Southern Hemisphere with nothing but a passport, a backpack and a mind full of dreams.

Here goes…

So, I started a blog. Something I’ve been talking about doing for quite some time, but never got around to actually doing it, like most things on this carousel called ‘life post kids’. But it’s not just me I’m sure. I’m not the only one that lacks the time to do anything remotely selfishly enjoyable, but that’s the choice we make I guess, after we leave the crazy, young, carelessly free days and decide that paying thousands of pounds worth of monthly bills, doing daily chores and being strapped to multiple little people is the way forward.
