Choosing to thrive

Posted by on Dec 9, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This month’s post from careerresilience all about thriving despite how you feel.  As I write this, I must admit that for a variety of reasons October and November are difficult months for me. It’s the same each year as I find that everything drops like a stone, my energy levels, confidence and motivation. These are the months when I’m most likely to feel like sh*t and can barely be arsed. Though to be fair this usually disappears once Christmas has passed and normally I am content to wait it out. But this year I am going to try something different, just to see what happens. Instead of...

A short story:- Elizabeth and Anne

Posted by on Oct 31, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I have long had an interest in Tudor history, particularly, around Elizabeth I. However, thanks to Hilary Mantel I have more recently, become as intrigued by her mother, Anne Boleyn. To me it is deeply ironic that it is Elizabeth, Henry the VIII’s second daughter that reigns on her own for over forty years, when he was so preoccupied with begetting a son. But sad, too, that Elizabeth never really knew her mother, so this is my imagining of the two women having the opportunity to talk frankly about their lives and it’s my small tribute to them, both. So, without further ado I give you:...

Looking back over my life and career so far, I have come to realise that I am quite driven and that changes in my ‘drivers’ have coincided with key points in my life. My ‘drivers’ haven’t felt quite like motivation in the normal sense to me. I’ve experienced them as more visceral, in the gut, ‘fire in my belly’ sensations to quote the ubiquitous Lord Sugar . Internal forces that have propelled me in different directions at different points in my life. In my twenties at the start of my career it was all about the money and attaining some financial security. I left my Polytechnic as it was...

The power of journaling……

Posted by on Aug 9, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This month’s post from careerresilience and it’s all about journaling and the difference it is making to me and my business. For me there is something both powerful and wonderful about regularly and consistently putting your thoughts down on paper, rather than having them interminably rattling around inside your head. I’m fairly, new to journaling, but I have been keeping a daily journal since December 2017 as I a result of starting with a weekly writing group. And, because I have been so very pleasantly surprised by the benefits I’m perceiving, from the process of writing daily...

Having some self-belief

Posted by on Jul 3, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

This month it’s all about self-belief and taking those bold steps towards change. There is only one of you and you may need to take some risks and chances to achieve your full potential. Two bold steps I’ve taken this month is to enter two stories into two different writing competitions. I have absolutely no idea what will happen, but if I am going to develop as a writer, I need to start taking some bold steps and sharing my ideas and stories. So for this month I say to you:  ...
