Self-Awareness – how do you rate? (No really – how do you rate?)


I know exactly how people see me…..they see me as a fearless lion.  They know I’m a strong leader and not some silly pussy cat.

Now of course we all think that we have great self awareness and we all think that we have a good read on how others perceive us. The reality is that many of us actually don’t. We find ourselves repeating negative behaviours, getting into dramas, having communication issues and wondering why. Continue reading


How balanced are you?

We are trying to get a little balance in our lives....

We are trying to get a little balance in our lives….

Do you often feel like you are juggling glass balls….pushed and pulled in 50 different directions? Or do you just feel like you don’t get time to do what you enjoy and love? We are often told that balance is the key to a happy and healthy life…… but for many of us our life is completely out of whack. Let’s face it……life gets busy and it can be so hard to find that mysterious “balance”. Continue reading

To fear or not to fear that is the question?

To fear or not to fear that is the question? Mmmm

To fear or not to fear that is the question? Mmmm

Feel the fear and do it anyway…push through the fear OR never choose in fear….Fear begets fear??? To fear or not to fear that is the question? Do we feel fear and still do something or do we steer clear of fear altogether? Why are some lessons so confusing? Continue reading

Do you enjoy your life?

Mmmm..I am trying to think of ways to make my life more enjoyable???

Mmmm..I am trying to think of ways to make my life more enjoyable???

Do you enjoy your life? Yes I am asking you to get a little philosophical today………
For many of us we may need to break this down into the different aspects of our lives: home; work and play. For example, some of us may be very happy at home but miserable at work. So if you break your life into these 3 general categories how does each area rate? Maybe give them a score out of 10? Continue reading

Do you invite stress into your life?

Do you unintentionally invite stress into your life? Do you go about your day totally unaware of the stresses/tensions that surround you? Are there areas of your life where frustrations are a daily occurrence, when they really don’t need to be? Maybe you don’t even realize that the strain is there or that you are being affected? We know that stress and especially continual stress can cause illness and unhappiness, so doesn’t it make sense to try to eliminate as much stress as we possibly can? Let’s take a typical day and see where stresses may be bubbling along under the surface.

Are you grateful for your family?


These are my favourite moments

These are my favourite moments

Well the start of a new month and time for us to have our first of the month reality check.  This month, being December and the beginning of the festive season, I thought we could all reflect on one of the most important areas in our life, but an area often neglected.  One that we may take for granted and one that deserves much love, nurturing and attention….FAMILY!

What energy do you bring into your relationships???

I bring happiness....

I bring happiness....

Are you mindful of what you bring to all relationships??……Recently I saw the last Oprah show………..along with millions of others. One of the segments really hit home. Oprah spoke of what energy you bring into the room… relationships, work etc. Years ago she had met an inspirational guest, a psychologist, who had been in a hospital in a coma. Even though this lady could not speak or move when she was in the coma, she was very conscious of her surroundings. She was aware that when some people visited or treated  her that they were kind, loving and respectful but she was also aware that some were dismissive, uncaring and did not treat her as a person. Her healing was definitely aided by care and love. When she awoke she was able to tell people that they had a presence and that they should be aware and responsible for what energy they bring to situations. What energy do you bring to those around you?………….are you friendly?….are you kind?….are you positive?…are you productive?…..are you easy to be around? Oprah then made it a rule in her life and workplace for people to be conscious of what energy they brought into the room with them.  What energy/feeling do you bring to your relationships: family;  work;  friends and strangers??? Be responsible for the energy you bring into each and every room…………Makes you think?????
