Well, it’s that time of year again when schools, students and parents too are preparing for the start of a new academic year. And it reminds me of when I first went to university in Sheffield all those years ago. Finding my way around, meeting new people, discovering new places (and pubs!), full of hope..
A number of women I’ve spoken to recently are either contemplating leaving work, already taking a break or simply wondering what to do next. For some this feels like a positive choice but others have become bored, burnt out or just recognise this isn’t where they want to be any more. Whilst reaching this..
Last night I was watching the latest series of The Real Marigold Hotel, where a group of older, familiar faces are spending a month together in India to check out whether they could retire there. And one thing in particular made me laugh out loud. It was Selena Scott’s reaction when the male chef told..
We have a choice. Repeating patterns from the past or creating something new. We think we’re choosing, deciding and acting freely as an adult but mostly we’re compensating for and reacting to our past as a child. Only when we see what’s really going on can we shift our focus, let go of the past..
An important but often overlooked aspect of creating what we love is being open to receive. We can invest huge amounts of time and energy trying to get what we want but if we don’t allow ourselves to receive we’ll block what’s available to us. Whether it’s a relationship, a new client, a new job..

Last week I had a few lovely surprises. I won a raffle, received money I wasn’t expecting and met just the person I needed at just the right time ;-) And the best part about it was, I didn’t have to do anything. Well not much anyway. None of these was planned. They were all..
Magic or mayhem? What are you creating? We’re always creating results of some kind, either what we want or, what we don’t want.
