Time for a RESET

Time for a RESET

Holey Moley.   Can you believe it?It’s almost JUNE.   What the hell is going on?  Time is passing by so quickly.   The good news this week is that I am feeling super energized after participating in another Tony Robbins inspired Event – Unleash HER...

Waiting For The Storm To Pass…

Waiting For The Storm To Pass…

As I sit down to prepare this blog, I am astounded by the speed at which the months appear to be passing by.  It's already the middle of May!     Russia and Ukraine have now been at war for nearly 3 months, and in addition to the continual updates and...

Your Moral Compass

Your Moral Compass

How are you?   Did you enjoy some ‘down’ time during the Easter break?   Hopefully (wherever you are), Covid rules have been relaxed sufficiently that you were able to meet up with friends and/or family and make some great memories together.   I did a...

What Scares You The Most?

What Scares You The Most?

Goodness, it’s April.  We are already through the first quarter of the year.  2022 Is flying by!   The other day I was working with a Client and she was explaining to me that she feels ‘stuck’.   I hear this frequently, and in case you are feeling the same, felt...

The Good Old Days

The Good Old Days

Here I am!   Finally coming up for air after 4 very intense days with Tony Robbins and Unleash the Power Within.  What a great event – and that’s despite the fact I probably only participated in 55-60% of the LIVE Programme.  My days of 13 hour workdays are long...

Invasion of the Monkeys

Invasion of the Monkeys

Welcome back!   With so much sadness in the world right now, I felt I should use my blog this week to make you smile.   To make us both smile.  Those images from Ukraine are so devastatingly sad and the constant news updates are really taking their toll, so...

Loving Life and The Lakes…

Loving Life and The Lakes…

This week, I am writing to you from the ‘Lake District’ here in the UK.   I mean they call it the ‘Lake District’ but in my humble opinion, that’s a little misleading!  There are lakes of course, but also mountains, valleys and rolling hills 🤣. And there are lots...

Already A Diva

Already A Diva

Every Saturday, I get to spend the day with my gorgeous nephew Logan.  That’s him on the right 💖   Rather than spending the day indoors - head buried in a gadget, we like to seek out new places to visit – places where he can get active and have some fun.  ...

My Date With Tony…

My Date With Tony…

WOW!  Just WOW!   Last week I participated in a 5-Day Challenge with Tony Robbins and as I write, am still basking in the glow - feeling fantastic.   My energy levels have rocketed!I used to listen to one of his programmes - ‘Awaken the Giant within’ during...

Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar

It’s a while since this incident occurred but I have found myself thinking about it quite recently as I reflect on 2021 and seek to address the areas of my life where I have been holding myself back from achieving all that I claim to desire.   Maybe it will...

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Happy New Year 🍾   First up, a reminder.  Yesterday was the twelfth day of Christmas so if you haven’t taken down your tree and decorations yet, stop reading and go do it now.  Put everything away until next year 🎄   Nice work!  Last time, I recommended...

Leave The Past Where It Belongs

Leave The Past Where It Belongs

It is less than 24 hours until the start of a brand new year.  Are you ready for it?     I know this is the time we all start thinking about what we want to achieve in the new year, often leading to a long list of ‘resolutions'.So, I have a suggestion....

The Perfect Gift…

The Perfect Gift…

I just wanted to stop by to wish you a truly magical Christmas and a wonderful year ahead.       I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all of your support during the year, and for all of your kind messages received...

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa…

I’m so excited – the Christmas tree is up, the cards are written, shopping is done and I’m all set. Woohooo!!   It feels good to have a permanent home again and to have the time to do all things ‘Christmassy’ - things that always seemed stressful in my...

When Do You Feel Most Alive?

When Do You Feel Most Alive?

I am feeling all childish and excited today.  Why?  Because I’ve been out to buy a new Christmas tree.  Woohoo!!!     Let’s not be concerned by the fact that (since moving into my new place in June), I don’t yet have a sofa, coffee table or TV.  But I have...

Replenishing the Soul

Replenishing the Soul

Well what a week it’s been.     With a number of COVID restrictions still in place, I made a decision some months ago, not to travel overseas until things had settled down and the likelihood of those ‘return immediately’ calls have diminished. And so I have...

Bridget Jones

Bridget Jones

Having realised (a few weeks ago) that there were only 3 months left of the year, I had to stand up and take responsibility.  I have let things slide.   There are a number of tasks that have been outstanding for a loooooooong time now and since I moved into my...

Protecting Your Energy

Protecting Your Energy

This week, I have been working on something that I haven’t done in a while.  I’ve been writing aTO-DO list.  I used to live by my TO-DO lists in my corporate career but since I started working for myself, not so much.      But with only 3 months left of the...

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

Is it my imagination or is this year just flying by?  I can’t get my head around the fact we are about to arrive at October!     I’ve been out walking this morning, and I am struck by the beauty that surrounds me.  Scotland is looking so very pretty right...

Re-Ignite The Flame

Re-Ignite The Flame

Well what an adventure I had this week. Walking the trail through a field of sunflowers – all of which stood around 7ft tall. I’m not going to lie, it was incredible.  I absolutely loved it. Indeed, I have already marked it in the calendar to repeat the experience...

Life By Design, Not Default

Life By Design, Not Default

It has now been 2 years almost to the day since I sold my home in Glasgow, put all of my personal belongings into storage and set off with just a suitcase, laptop and a quest for adventure.   Of course, I did not anticipate that 6 months later, the whole world...

Take Back Your Crayons

Take Back Your Crayons

Wow!  Time really is flying by!   We have now reached the middle of August, the kids (in Scotland at least) are back at school and before you can say – “put the heating on”, we will be racing towards Christmas and the dark winter nights.So don’t forget to take a...

Disrupting Patterns

Disrupting Patterns

It’s August!  Can you believe it?   2021 is flying by …. despite the fact that we have been in lockdown for much of the year so far.   There have been days, weeks and months that seemed to drag by… and yet here we are. Suddenly its August and instead of...

In Denial

In Denial

Greetings from a very sunny Scotland. Oh what a fabulous week it has been here.     And I would be doing the country a dis-service if I didn’t tell you that Scotland looks spectacular in the sunshine.  I mean it probably looks impressive in all weathers, but...

Stop Taking Yourself Down

Stop Taking Yourself Down

Do you sometimes feel ‘stuck’?Or frustrated that things aren’t moving forward in the way or at the pace you would like?   YES?  Well don’t worry, because you are not alone.   Feeling this way is perfectly normal.   The question is, how to deal with...

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom

Recently, it struck me (not for the first time) just how different my life is these days – compared to all those years spent nurturing my corporate career.      Now don't get me wrong, I loved my job - and I got to experience the most amazing adventures and...

What If

What If

I’ve seen a lot of posts recently about returning to ‘normal’ after the pandemic.     Well, what if we chose NOT to return to ‘normal’?And by that, I mean, returning to a way of life almost identical to the one we had before.     What if we chose...

Brighter Life

Brighter Life

Greetings from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿     Yes, my London trip was short & sweet, and I am now back home in Scotland.     And as we head rapidly towards the end of May, I find myself reflecting on the year so far.     And it would be fair to...

Power in the Remote

Power in the Remote

Greetings from London.   As I mentioned last time, lockdown rules have now been relaxed in Scotland and so we are finally permitted to travel beyond the 5-mile radius that has formed the boundary to our lives for months.   Naturally, as soon as the law was...

Freedom Beckons

Freedom Beckons

Wow!  Can you believe we are almost in May?   What a year it has been so far.   Here in Scotland, lockdown rules have finally been relaxed and so at long last, we are permitted to travel beyond the 5-mile radius that has been imposed since Christmas time. ...

Your Time Is NOW

Your Time Is NOW

There’s something wonderful happens when a woman reaches her forties, don’t you agree?   When men turn 40, often-times it signals a descent into crisis.  And before I go any further, let me say – I accept this is a sweeping generalization, but men do have more of...

THE END

THE END

This is it. THE END.    For I have decided to give up my coaching career and withdraw from the world.    This will be the last newsletter you will ever receive from me.   As soon as circumstances allow, I will be heading to the Caribbean and will set up...

Time to Let Go

Time to Let Go

Well... how did it go?  Did you take some time to cleanse your thoughts as recommended in the last blog post?  I hope so, and if you did, I expect that you are already feeling better for it.     I invite you now to stop for a moment – PAUSE and take a look...

Preparing for Spring

Preparing for Spring

I’m back!   I’ve been absent throughout the month of February and for that I apologise 💕 but I’m back now, and have no plans to go anywhere in the near future.   Except maybe on a plane somewhere warm & sunny…. but in which case, you get to come too!...

Say No to Blue Monday

Say No to Blue Monday

How are you?   Feeling blue?  Well, don’t be surprised, because earlier this week, it was officially ‘Blue Monday’ and I don’t know about you but I am definitely feeling it this year.   Lockdown restrictions are really taking their toll right now and none of...

Magic of Music

Magic of Music

I don’t recall whether I shared this with you or not, but I recently started working my way through ‘The Artists Way’ by Julia Cameron.    I picked up the book one day after enjoying my morning coffee in Waterstones – thinking it looked like an interesting read –...

Intentional Living

Intentional Living

With only a few weeks left of 2020 and having taken some time to reflect on this closing year (see previous blog), I want to encourage you to start thinking about how you might like 2021 to look for you.     Not in the form of a list of goals and/or...

Reflection

Reflection

Can you believe it?   We are exactly 6 weeks away from the final day of 2020.   And what a year it’s been.   Not one we are likely to forget in a hurry, that’s for sure.So much has changed.     We have been separated from friends and family,...

Well, where to start?    As I sit down to prepare this blog, it is Tuesday 2nd of November and much of Europe has recently been plunged into another month-long lockdown - designed to slow the rate at which coronavirus is spreading.Over in the US, Donald Trump and...

Listen To Your Heart

Listen To Your Heart

‘Everyday courage’ is about having the strength to deal with the challenges that life throws at you; and it’s about the willingness to listen to yourself, to trust your instinct.   It’s about daring to love and accept yourself exactly as you are, and even in...

Own It!

Own It!

Can you believe it?  We are now on the final stretch of 2020. It’s been a strange old year.  At times - during lockdown, it felt like time had stood still and yet here we are – with less than 90 days remaining to year end.   September it seems, just passed in a...

Happy? – The Choice Is Yours

Happy? – The Choice Is Yours

Now – last time, we talked about HAPPINESS and it’s such an important topic, I think perhaps we should continue with the conversation.  I want to remind you that happiness is a choice and every single day you can choose to be happy …. or not.  You can choose to let...

Choose Happy

Choose Happy

I had nearly six hours on the train on my way back to the South of France, and found myself thinking about how much has changed in a year.     And it struck me that, despite our differences and our unique characteristics, most of us want the same thing....

Showing Up For Your Dreams

Showing Up For Your Dreams

I want to continue the conversation about CERTAINTY that we started last time - specifically in regard to the vision you hold for your life.   Certainty is the highest form of showing up for your dreams and your purpose.   Certainty gives us an added spark...

Cultivating Certainty

Cultivating Certainty

I want to talk about creating CERTAINTY - specifically in regard to your vision.   Certainty is a skillset that every legend and icon has developed.   And you can too.   Certainty gives us an added spark and burst of enthusiasm – which makes us...

Your Time to Shine

Your Time to Shine

There's something important that I would like to share with you this week.   Something that has come up for me personally, and often comes up in my work with Clients. And that is, fear of JUDGEMENT.   My Clients are reluctant to start living the life of...

Heading to the Seaside

Heading to the Seaside

Greetings from Marseilles ☀️     How wonderful to be with you once again.     In all honesty, my decision to come to Marseilles was somewhat ‘random’. I had already been in Annecy for a number of weeks, and as lockdown restrictions were finally...

The Magic of Travel

The Magic of Travel

As I write, the world is only just beginning to emerge from the various restrictions imposed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.    It’s been more than 100 days but at last, families are being reunited, shops and restaurants are permitted to re-open and just...
