Happy Thursday! Today is one of those days where I decided that if I want something to happen, I have to make it happen. And so here we are… You may remember at the start of the year I launched my blog coaching services. In the muddled world of contracts ending and going
Inspired by this post on Raising Master Max As Cherie mentioned, there seems to be this need to one-up people or compete about how busy you are. To me, there are two main aspects to busyness: Venting Look, we all need to vent & brain dump every now & again. It’s healthy.
What is the scariest thing to do? Trust yourself? For as long as I have remembered, I have wanted to work for myself. And yet, here I am again, a contract is up & applying for some boring jobs that will pay the bills & keep me entirely unfulfilled. Can I be
Public transport is a treasure trove of stories. Which is good when you’re a blogger. Today I woke up too early and decided to go to work earlier – that way I finish earlier. Score, I know. Sitting on the train, I heard some fellow passengers talking about their weekend. Only, well, it

Blood tests came back fine, just showing that I have an unspecified virus (as well as the throat infection/tonsillitis). Basically I’m
I came across this link on the A Life Less Frantic Facebook page this morning and I adore it. As a creative person who is sometimes without focus, I feel lost in the “follow your passion” world. This advice from Elizabeth Gilbert is simple and so true. If you don’t have a passion,
There’s a (sad) fact of reality in blogging and business that you can’t attend every conference you’d like to. Time and money are huge factors here. Thankfully we live in the internet ages so you can still glean some knowledge from the speakers if you can’t attend. I’m a huge fan of hashtag stalking (I’ve
