I will never do less because I’m not expected to do more.

I will never do less because I’m not expected to do more.

This idea of putting in minimum effort to make my life easier has rarely crossed my mind. Ever since I can remember, whenever I have been given a task I will be mapping it out in my head as it's being explained, working out the best way to start. I set it all out like [...]

You’ve just got to keep going girl.

You’ve just got to keep going girl.

So I have officially finished my career in childcare now (after seven years!) I currently have no job and one week to find a place and move out of my current house. On paper this was the plan I envisioned. Turns out reality is soo much harder. As I was walking back from the train [...]

Are you even listening?

Are you even listening?

The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply. I've read this quote a few times. Each time I totally agree with it. In society today, I think we all have an awful lot to say. We have opinions about pretty much everything and sometimes tend to even give them when they aren't [...]

The good with the bad.

So as with all seasons we go through in life, some are good and some are bad. Learning to go with the flow of the, sometimes unbearable and hard waves, is all part of the journey. . . I am great at listening to another's issues and giving advice and looking at what is best [...]

Your words have so much power.

Your words have so much power.

Everyday I write my dreams down. Not the little ones, the job goals, the target weight, the holiday goal. I write the ambitious, audacious, gigantic, out of this world, crazy dreams.  I've never felt so much power as when I write them down. Every morning it's a reminder that no matter how I feel, or [...]

It’s that time.

It’s that time.

I was speaking to a friend at the weekend who said Autumn was the worst season. Everything dies and it's all brown and dark. Autumn is my favourite season. I love the beautiful shades of green, orange, red, yellow and brown that run thorough the trees. The crisp breeze that makes you pull your coat [...]

It takes a village.

It takes a village.

Most of our achievements in life are done with help. Majority of the time we do the heavy lifting and then we get encouragement from friends, support from colleagues and advice from family to get us across the finish line. The last couple of weeks I've been having some anxieties about big, adult decisions I [...]
