Ancient history or productive inspiration?

Do we carry our ancient history around like excess baggage or do we use it as a productive and inspiring tool to free us from doubt, embarrassment and failure? Well, that depends on each individual BUT whatever we normally do, we can change it to the productive and inspiring tool! Banish the excess baggage. Why…

Biting the bullet!

Sometimes we have to just bite the bullet and make decisions, or take actions which are the ‘least bad’ or help with damage control – and often from causes through no fault of our own. I always find this difficult, I used to pass through the stages of burying my head in the sand, beating…

Step OFF the Scales

We’ve all heard the expression ‘work-life balance’ and know how hard it can be for working women to achieve it.  I would go further and suggest that in many ways it is a contradiction in terms.  The word ‘balance’ implies a kind of equality but I would argue that even when you are a successful…

Are you more of a motorbike or a car character? Or even a 4-wheel drive?

When the Creative Flow has Flown!

My Creative Flow has Flown ! No time, no ideas, no inspiration! What can I do? My creative flow has definitely flown… All day I have been trying to get started on websites, design, clever words and lovely images. Too many clients, not enough time, deadlines to meet, appointments to book – patience being lost, energy…

What Does The Future Hold For You?

What do you feel when you think of the future? Excitement? Trepidation? Confidence? Insecurity? Fun? Hope? Despair? Or nothing of great interest… I feel a mixture of excitement, curiosity, hope and nervousness mixed with a bit of worry as to how it will turn out. Whatever that mix is, I feel alive and interested. I…
