We all have a choice

I read a tweet this morning by Paul McGee (@TheSumoGuy) that invited us to make a choice today. We could choose to be grumpy about whatever was irritating us or getting in the way of our life, or choose to be grateful for what we have and what is around us. I was out walkingContinue reading “We all have a choice”

One more week of being 47

Next Sunday I turn 48. Yeah I know! I find it difficult to believe too. Clean living and a sunny disposition is the answer.

We used live at No. 47 Springbank (for the older reader fromContinue reading “One more week of being 47”

Morning Rise

Thank you Foggy….I think

I have not felt great this week, it has been one of those weeks, where I have just felt out of sorts. Nothing I could really put my finger on, just a bit down on my self.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of you! Remember to have the Christmas that really plays to your values. Have the Christmas that sits comfortably, the Christmas that feels warm, cosy, familiar and natural. For me that means getting up at 6:30am and baking some bread, wearing the traditional Christmas morning outfit, my Christmas onsie. Whilst waitingContinue reading “Merry Christmas”

A leap of faith

I don’t normally write a blog during the week, as I am usually too done in to think of anything useful to write. Tonight however I feel inspired to write a bit about my day today and to talk about an event that happened nearly a month ago, something that I found myself talking aboutContinue reading “A leap of faith”

Entering the arena, sharing and taking feedback with grace

This week I shared with you all the overview of the first chapter of my fledgling book. I copied and pasted it from google docs, put it in italics so you could tell which bit was the exposition.

Outline of Chapter 1 of Connected Living (Your Well Being)

As a lot of you will know,¬† I have been talking about writing a book about connected living. Yes another book about success.

A Monk, Ruby, a Neuroscientist, Gaz, Midfulness and a Lot of Human Factors

I have been trying to think what I did during the day on Monday, and I am really struggling to remember exactly what I did do, it is a bit of a blur. I remember meeting up withContinue reading “A Monk, Ruby, a Neuroscientist, Gaz, Midfulness and a Lot of Human Factors”
