Where to begin? It has been months since I last wrote. Money is a great motivator, and as I saw the notification pop up on my phone advising me that I had just paid for another year’s subscription to WordPress for my site, I decided I had better put my fingers to the keyboard andContinue reading “Money Talks”

I count myself very lucky to drive a car with a built-in SatNav. Having moved house 3 times in 4 years, and one of those moves being over 8000 miles, as one might imagine, I rely on it heavily. Between Google maps, Waze and our vehicles’ onboard navigation systems, it’s like we don’t even seeContinue reading “Sign Language”
Learning to Fly
As a small child I remember being convinced that I could fly. I could imagine so clearly what it would feel like, it was as if I had done it before. We had a driveway with quite a steep gradient which had a retaining wall. The wall started off tiny and got bigger towards theContinue reading “Learning to Fly”
A friend of mine recently asked me to write an article on Gaslighting, and I had to confess that I didn’t actually know what the term meant. You may not be familiar with the term, but when I explain what it is, I guarantee you’ll have come across it in one form or another inContinue reading “Gaslighting”
What doesn’t kill you…
I’ve always loved the phrase, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Kelly Clarkson made me love it even more, especially hearing it sung passionately, if out of tune, by a 3 year old Danica (in a tutu and nothing else). I am proud to say that I’ve survived a few situations that have comeContinue reading “What doesn’t kill you…”
I had a T-shirt when I was in my teens that read: F.E.A.R. – F**k Everything And Run. It was my favourite item of clothing, mostly for the fact that it had the ‘F’ word on it, and I felt super cool to be old enough to get away with wearing it. It also tiedContinue reading “F.E.A.R”
What do you want?
It’s a question we hear all the time. On the surface, it sounds pretty simple, and usually yields a quick response. My most recent reply to this question was: “I’d like a G & T please.” Because it’s Friday; because that’s my signal for the end of the week; because I’ve had a great day;Continue reading “What do you want?”
Back to the drawing board
I have always been a creative person. From as far back as I can remember, I permanently had some form of drawing utensil in my sticky little hand, ready to create a work of art (or something to that effect). If the house was quiet, and my mother wasn’t sure where I was, all sheContinue reading “Back to the drawing board”
I felt inspired to write about Imposter Syndrome after a really great chat with my sister on the phone the other day. We were discussing this venture I’ve embarked on and she made a comment about me being “brave” to do what I’m doing. It was in no way meant as a criticism, and neitherContinue reading “Imposter Syndrome”
What time is it?
It is time to start. It is the right time. The time is now. This hasn’t always been my response to getting down to business. I have been guilty of procrastinating; haven’t we all? But I have learnt that the hardest part is just taking the first step, and that every single step you takeContinue reading “What time is it?”
