Working girl

Always being a career girl, then making the decision to quit the day job back in August, I’ve really enjoyed officially setting myself up as a ‘Freelance Marketing Specialist’ (love a good title!), having done it on the side of the paid job for a long time, but now that it’s my only source of […]

Be great – be grateful: #1

I’m definitely a grateful person.  I say my thank you’s when they’re due but more so, I’m grateful for all the things around me, my family, my friends, my life and this beach!

Forever young

Funny how your life choices alter with age. When you’re young you want to be older, and when you’re older you want to be young. But age is the one thing we cannot stop happening, although where growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.

New year, no limits

Moving to the other side of the world is something we always spoke of doing, something that was always on the living bucket list, that we’d wanted to do for quite some time, and 2018 saw that dream come true.  Blue sky, sandy beaches, ocean waves but also, more opportunity to live and dream.

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.

Are we there yet?

We all ask ourselves questions.   Am I a good parent?  Should I be doing more to help others?  Should I be reconnecting with family and friends I’ve lost touch with?  Should I be spending more time with the children? Am I enough?

Tick tock

When we were young time didn’t really go fast.  Maybe because we didn’t have anywhere to be, no one was waiting on us and we didn’t clock watch and wonder how long we had left.  Nowadays, I think of it often.

Right here, right now

We live in an era of disturbance, of interference, of distraction yet our futures will be determined by the amount of attention we pay to the present.  Lots of things have changed for me lately, some big moves have been made for sure and I’m looking ahead to the future, but should I be?

Everything that remains

So it’s here. My last day of employment and the start of the exciting laptop-living freelance life.  But as I sit here alone at 8.30am on my last day in the office, I can’t help to think what I’m leaving behind.

Be your own Architect

There are so many life clichés – Life is short | Live for today, not for tomorrow | Live every day like it’s your last | Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today… But they are cliché for a reason, because they are true.

Suddenly I see

We all change right?  Maybe as a result of something happening in our lives, something negative or positive, something in our control or out of it, but for me, it’s ultimately an age thing.

Lesson’s learned, outside the classroom

So last week social media was a flood with images of children’s school reports, news on how well kids had done in their exams, what level they finished the year at, which is all lovely to see, but I’ll be honest, for my two, I mostly skipped all that.

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.

Remember, remember

Memories.  One of my favourite pastimes.  Making them, remembering them, laughing and smiling about them.  It brings me so much joy to take my mind back to the places I hold close to my heart, to be there again, to remember how I felt at that exact moment in time, to relive it in my […]

You define the finish line

Besides being a good parent, spouse, friend etc., if you were selfish for a moment and had one wish, one wish to be whatever you wanted to be in life, what would you say?

Tune into your life, and live it

Is it really that hard?  To find the balance I mean.  The balance between work life, kid’s life, house life, your life.  There’s no rule book, we know that, I’ve scoured the Amazon Best Sellers list a good few times looking for all the answers of how to juggle life, so maybe coming up with […]

Then versus now

For those of us too close to 40yrs than we’d like to admit, we all remember growing up in the 80’s, something I for one am kinda proud of.  Perms, stonewashed jeans, Grotbags, BROS and Walkman’s are all things I’m sure we all remember vividly from that time in our lives, but sitting in my […]

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 […]
