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…”

February 2022 – Mojo where are you…

God knows where this month has gone, I probably say that every month!! The beginning of Feb was a real struggle mentally as recently I’ve lost all motivation to exercise and it was getting to me. I’ve been into exercise for as long as I can remember, at school, I played whatever sport I couldContinue reading “February 2022 – Mojo where are you…”

January 2022 – Being Authentically Me

Here we go again, another year to achieve our dreams! Like lots of other people, I find January a little overwhelming, all the talk about what will you achieve this year, plans and activities just tires me out thinking about it! Don’t get me wrong, if this kind of planning works for you then greatContinue reading “January 2022 – Being Authentically Me”

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”

September 2021 – Broken Record

And just like that, we’re through 3/4 of 2021!! September was a full-on month with work and business activities, the days and weeks just seem to go by in a blink of an eye, which is awesome and so pleased with how this area of my life is developing, however, it comes at a costContinue reading “September 2021 – Broken Record”

August 2021 – A decade of Firecracker

This month the business has got crazy busy which I’m ecstatic about as have felt for a long time that it might be time for a complete change, my belly fire is still burning bright but my head was saying something different these feelings were heightened this month too because Firecracker celebrated being 10 yearsContinue reading “August 2021 – A decade of Firecracker”

June 2021 – All change…

Back in February (which feels a lifetime ago) I was given the opportunity to do some visiting tutor hours as part of the business and enterprise team at Bishop Grosseteste University here in Lincoln, I was teaching two modules for the first years and although I’ve been a trainer for over 20 years I’ve hardlyContinue reading “June 2021 – All change…”
