How To Show Your Love So They Feel It

By |September 2nd, 2016|Whole LIfe|

I told my son that I was really proud of him last night. Of course, I am always proud of him (what mother isn’t?) but I had reason to SAY it last night because he received an award at his High School’s sports prize giving.  Do you know what he said to me?  He said, ”Are you [...]

It Came And Bit Him Where It Hurts!

By |July 11th, 2016|For Parents, Goal setting, Motivation, Success, Whole LIfe|

We had my son’s parent teacher interviews at school the other day.  He had 100% success rate but not the kind you really want.  His success?  He managed to have every one of his teachers say, “You’re a pleasure to have in the classroom BUT stop all your procrastinating and get your work handed in, [...]

The Equation To Happiness

By |June 30th, 2016|Goal setting, Happiness, Motivation, Success|

Do you think we ever truly make it there? By there I mean...our ultimate happy life. It seems to me that a lot of people are never happy with where they're at. They strive to achieve, to meet their goals, to improve their personal well-being and life, but do they ever stop long enough to realize they've actually made it [...]

Why Creativity Is So Important (and it’s not about art!)

By |May 24th, 2016|Creative, Goal setting, Happiness, Inspiring, Motivation, Success, Videos, Whole LIfe|

Thinking creatively does not always refer to creating works of art, e.g. painting, music or poetry. Thinking creatively helps you get out of tricky situations.  Thinking creatively empowers you to think outside the square and make the most of every opportunity that comes knocking on your door. It's not what you have but what you [...]

If You Don’t Think You’re Brave, Then Think Again

By |May 16th, 2016|Coping skills, Inspiring, Motivation, Success, Videos, Whole LIfe|

Do you know the difference between being fearless and being brave?  You might think they're the same thing but they certainly aren't. A 3-year old child could be described as fearless as he jumps off the roof dressed as Superman, believing he can fly!  But that's not very sensible, is it? Being fearless often means being reckless and [...]

Write Your Own Personal Recipe To Success

By |May 8th, 2016|Coping skills, Emotions, Feeling Down, Grief, Happiness, Success, Videos|

Stressed?  Anxious?  Depressed?  Grieving? All of these things are BIG problems for many people and if not brought under control, can take over your whole life.  It affects relationships, jobs, the ability to find true happiness and if it continues for too long, it can make you ill. But what does it actually mean when [...]

How To Live Each Day With Purpose

By |April 17th, 2016|Coping skills, Goal setting, Happiness, Inspiring, Motivation, Success, Whole LIfe|

Can you believe we're half way through April already?  Where is the year going? Before you know it we'll be planning Christmas and saying, "Can you believe it's another Xmas already?  Where did that year go!" So how are things for you ? Are you happy with where you're at? One of the things I find [...]

It Works Best This Way

By |March 24th, 2016|As I see it, Happiness, Motivation, Success, Whole LIfe|

You know what I find really interesting?  When someone is moaning about how life sucks and yet they are so set in their ways they refuse to open themselves up to new thinking.  Do you imagine that if you had all the answers then there’d be nothing to moan about?  Well, you would think so. [...]

Come and share my sunshine

By |March 17th, 2016|As I see it, Coping skills, Emotions, Feeling Down, Grief, Happiness, Inspiring, Videos|

Have you ever flown on a plane when the weather has been really cloudy and raining?  It can be darned miserable down there on the ground before you take off. But what happens when you get above the cloud?  There is no longer any rain and the clouds are all beneath you.  It's like you [...]

Can We Change Our Memories?

By |March 13th, 2016|For Parents|

I have only fond memories of my childhood.  I used to worry about what memories my children will grow up with, but now I've analysed the whole process a bit more I no longer worry. My parents weren’t deliberately making memories for us, they were just living their life and doing what they thought was [...]
