Quick, Quick, Slow ….

  My feet are tapping, my heart is pounding and I sit here wondering how today’s dance shall be performed. Another choreography played out on the stage of life, full of expression, history, crossed perceptions and drama, and at the core of it all, the birth of a baby boy. No this isn’t another attempt at a nativity play. Today is the day my ex-husband and his soul mate deliver their first son. A day that I am actively involved in (to some degree) and right now, I am quite apprehensive about it, for quite a few reasons. Firstly it’s […]

I do believe, I choose to believe

Its that time of the year – and boy oh boy am I a sucker for the Christmas season. I lap up every carols by candle light, every shiny bauble on the tree, every opportunity to shop for gifts that will excite and delight and even though its just a month  – its the best month of the year for me . I have a dear friend who hates the very notion of Christmas. She would rather disappear to a secluded island (I think she wants to go looking for Arrow truthfully) for the month , than expose herself to the dreaded […]

Engage, Retain, Lead

  Watching rugby is a fantastic way to spend the weekend in South Africa and last weekend was no different for most … that is if you like drinking beer, shouting at the TV and eating Boerewors off the braai. For me it was a little less enticing but when the whole household is participating – you do feel obliged to quietly endure the afternoon. As the referee once more shouted out the instructions “Crouch, Touch, Pause and Engage” I got to thinking about the similes in life where a referee of our own, a parent, a pastor, a teacher […]

There is a hole in my bucket ….

  I’m not sure if its because winter is taking its toll in the Southern hemisphere or if it is “That time of the year” but everyone I speak to seems to be feeling a little less energetic, a little more frazzled and quite bluntly “fed up” with their lives. It could be SAD (seasonal Affective disorder) affecting us adversely, but honestly, in South Africa, where it is still heavenly blue skies above for the majority of the winter day (even when it Is -5 degrees outside)  I struggle to think we qualify completely for this disorder. I struggle the most with […]

The greatest challenge facing our Economy

    Yes its a deep topic for me today and it has resonated from a couple of tough choices I may need to make soon. Running your own business definitely highlights the ups and downs on the rollercoaster we call “the economy” and right now I feel like I’m flying upside down , at full speed,without a safety belt, into a roller coaster abyss. Mmmmm , What to do ? I thought I would analyse the economy for myself, the only way I know how … enjoy! I believe the greatest challenge facing our economy is the lack of responsibility many people have towards […]

The Story of …. Love

  I was wondering what I could write about this week, what lessons I could share with you and how I could stay in a place where I am vulnerable and true to myself. I am madly in love with my husband and after spending a wonderful weekend away with him and then receiving such strength and support from him yesterday, I kind of knew in my heart ….it had to be about love.   As I sat down to sieve through the drafts of ideas and content that I am forever jotting down for future use, I accidently came […]

The Dreaded Stuckness – Part 2

  As I was writing the first part of this article last Monday little did I know that I would be using my own advice quite a bit in the week that followed. The article helped me in so many ways to get unstuck and Ill give a few examples how it helped. First it was a life saver as I had a group of ladies over for a life coaching session and hadn’t had any time to prepare anything specific for them – so I used the article and the first 5 steps to get them started. Then I […]

A tool of incredible power, a simple question we can all ask!

  Today has been a funny day of ups and downs – more downs than ups this morning and that’s why I found myself surrendering to “the way it is” and I decided to do a Chakra meditation…. the only answer I knew I could manage to take action on and complete.   I did the meditation, answered a few emails and then sat pointlessly staring at my laptop…. mmmm I thought, what next?   I then realised that I have been blessed with the freedom to have a day like this , a day that’s not perfectly productive and […]

The Dreaded Stuckness – Part 1

  We live in a world where we are constantly driven to be better, stronger, richer, fitter … and so the list goes on. All in all, it’s a fantastic trait that we have, because we are always looking for ways to enhance our growth and leave a legacy that’s worth something. The only bad part of our desire as human being to keep pushing ourselves is that we are our own worst enemies, often driving ourselves to illness , stress, melt downs and what I like to call the dreaded “Stuckness “.   Here’s how I believe we move […]

Gummy Berry Juice for Happiness

    I have received two answers this week with regards to happiness and the confirmation that happiness can occur irrespective of any other situation, person or event. Many of us are conditioned into thinking “I’ll be happy when…….” If this happens ….. I ll be really happy “. I call this destructive behaviour “Attachment expectations “.  They are the rules and conditions that we create with limits, that really make life difficult for us to enjoy.   I have been experimenting with what I have named “light visualisations” at gym for the last few weeks. It sound quite spiritual and […]
