Do you care about Future You?

We tend to care less about the future version of ourselves than we do about our present day selves.One donut today won’t hurt!! Will it?If one donut today becomes a sugary treat every day, that can build up over time to become a problem for our future selves. It’s the same with anything we put off or don’t do because we can’t be bothered/aren’t motivated enough to make the change today. Many of us only make a change when the pain of…

Where did it all go wrong?

Last week, 3 generations of women were murdered – Mara Quinn, her mother, twin 2 year old girls and her 3 year old daughter.  The girls were left inside the home for a week undiscovered.

There’s no story without struggle

I was talking to a coaching client the other day about The Hero’s Journey.  The Hero’s Journey is a map of transformation, where you can take a difficult experience you’ve gone through in the past and see the map from struggle to transformation, and everything in between. The original story of the Hero’s Journey was told by Joseph Campbell in his book “The Hero With a Thousand Faces” and it starts with a ‘call to adventure’ – a longing from…

You don’t need to go anywhere to find yourself

You’re right here.  You also can’t run away from your problems – because you’ll be taking yourself with you.  You could “find” yourself wherever you are, and make a decision to be happy with who you are, warts n all.  And if there are things you want to change about yourself that’s fine too, just choose to be happy while you make those changes. Choose happiness 💛 Catcha on the flip side,  …
