May 2022 – Conditional Living

May for me has been quite an emotionally tough month for many different reasons but also a month of realisations and lightbulb moments too. As I mentioned last month, I had planned to do some daily actions for 100 days leading up to my 45th birthday – when I thought of the challenge, I thoughtContinue reading “May 2022 – Conditional Living”

April 2022 – Head down, crack on!

April went in a bit of a blur really. It got to the 1st and I realised that a workshop I was delivering was in less than three weeks, plenty of time to prepare, however, I had to account for the long Easter weekend during this preparation time. I look back at my calendar andContinue reading “April 2022 – Head down, crack on!”

March 2022 – Brighter days are coming…

March has been quite a tough month for me emotionally, the first half of the month I was feeling pretty lonely, not really sure what caused this but tears flowed most days! I’m always so happy for friends when they share the good news about their lives be these engagements, pregnancies and birth announcements butContinue reading “March 2022 – Brighter days are coming…”

December 2021 – Catching my breath

December this year has been a time I attempt to catch my breath so to speak, for the last decade I haven’t really taken much time off at Christmas as I felt that if I wasn’t working I wasn’t earning money and that freaked the hell out of me. For most of the month, IContinue reading “December 2021 – Catching my breath”

November 2021 – Alien in New York

November was a month with so many conflicted thoughts and a mixed bag of emotions, a real rollercoaster of a month. Not sure the reason for such a mixed month as in general everything is going swimmingly really, well apart from exercise (have just lost motivation for this, more about that next month!) but workContinue reading “November 2021 – Alien in New York”

July 2021 – Running on Empty

July is a bit of a strange month for me, it’s my birthday month which I often find challenging. I feel like I’m running on empty, completely devoid of energy, exhausted and lost all my mojo for life, not in a depressed way so to speak but just no motivation to do things I usuallyContinue reading “July 2021 – Running on Empty”

January 2021 – Escapism at home

As we entered a new year the inevitable announcement came that once again we were being asked to Stay Home, Protect the NHS and Save Lives. One thing I decided to do with the lockdown announcement was to turn my phone off at the weekend as I don’t need to be anywhere and in mostContinue reading “January 2021 – Escapism at home”

June 2020 – Raving Fan

Following on from May’s post this month I’ve put a lot of focus on myself and self-love. This is something I’ve struggled with over the years and often feel like it’s selfish, however, I’m learning that if I’m not in the best place then I can’t be there for my friends and family so workingContinue reading “June 2020 – Raving Fan”

January 2020 – So many possibilities

I’m always a little apprehensive about the start of a new year and this year it’s a new decade too. I guess it’s a mixture of the excitement of what the year might bring but also the overwhelming feeling of fear for the next twelve months and not repeating behaviours that haven’t serve me wellContinue reading “January 2020 – So many possibilities”
