Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was sitting and wondering what to do about a particular problem that I have been facing of late.  This problem has been consuming me and I have been raging against it and I just need to stop allowing this.  While I was pondering how to move on from it I came across the quote… Continue reading Don’t be pushed by your problems.

Day 5 of my new reality… a world without my mum in it.

It is day 5 of my new reality. 5 days of life without my mum. My quiet, fiercely independent and loving mum. My heart is broken that she is no longer with us but I know that she is now at peace. She suffers no more and that gives me great comfort. She taught me… Continue reading Day 5 of my new reality… a world without my mum in it.

Be careful who you push away…some of us don’t come back…(maybe some of us are not meant to anyway?)

I was scrolling through Instagram at some ungodly hour this morning (thanks storm for waking me up!) when I saw this quote. My initial reaction was "sadly true" but then I was like "wait a minute...is it really?". I felt a sense of apprehensiveness when I first read it. That couldn't be good. I decided… Continue reading Be careful who you push away…some of us don’t come back…(maybe some of us are not meant to anyway?)

3 lessons I have learned from my last relationship

I have never been one to over analyse what's gone wrong in any of my relationships.  I have often taken the route of pompously getting on my horse and riding off into the sunset believing I was the better person and that I had been done wrong by the other party.  Pretty damn immature of… Continue reading 3 lessons I have learned from my last relationship

“Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination” Drake

Oh my hat!  These past two weeks have been an emotional roller coaster of note. Making the decision to let go of control 2 weeks ago has brought about a lot (and I mean a loooot) of soul searching.  In the process I have uncovered a few truths about myself that I guess I always… Continue reading “Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination” Drake

I’m letting go of control …eek!

As I write this, my heart is beating a little faster and my chest is feeling just a little tighter.  A sense of panic is setting in.   I am a control freak and the idea of letting go of control scares me to death (or so it feels).  The truth is that I actually have… Continue reading I’m letting go of control …eek!

A nod to the women who have helped mould me

I had an exciting start to my day!  I found my old music on my hard drive!  Needless to say, I have been dancing the morning away!  There very few stress relievers as effective as a good shake to music you love.  Not only does music help me shake off the stress but it can… Continue reading A nod to the women who have helped mould me

“Men are stubborn. Women have strong personalities…”

Sorry men but all women know this to be true...and yes, there really is a difference. I had a good laugh today when one of my colleagues shared the outcome of  her conversation  with her husband last night about this very topic.  His response..."stop using "Woolworths language" on me...lol!  As far as he was concerned,… Continue reading “Men are stubborn.

“I told my myself: Life is growth. You grow or your die.” Phil Knight

Shoe Dog: A memoir by the creator of Nike by Phil Knight…what a story!  I am not a big fan of autobiographies, but I definitely enjoyed the style of writing in this one.  It reads like a novel.  Full of twists and turns as well as valuable insights and lessons. Not only is a great… Continue reading “I told my myself: Life is growth. You grow or your die.” Phil Knight
