Overcoming Perfectionism…

Ok, who’s a perfectionist? I know I am for a lot of things. I think perfectionism can be a good thing (in moderation), because we then do a quality job (or is that the perfectionist coming out in me?) But it can also bring so much pressure to ourselves when things aren’t seen as perfect […]

The River of Change…

I’m torn to be writing this actually. Because there’s millions of people in the world that don’t have a choice. Their only choice IS to exist. To do what they can every day just to try and put food on their table and have a roof over their head (if they’re lucky). It’s an inside […]

Writing a book is like fine wine…it takes time…

I’ve dabbled in writing over the years, mainly journalling, and in the early years, certainly nothing for anyone else’s eyes!

Through challenge, comes reward…

Early Menopause at 29…

At the age of just 29 I was diagnosed as post menopausal…it seemed to happen overnight, sneaking up silently without warning…back then (1993) there were few options and even less support, but everything happens for a reason even if we don’t know what the reason is at the time… “Your test results show you have […]

Courage or Comfort?

How often do you get stuck in the decision-making process? Especially the BIG decisions. Do you mull over, ruminate and regurgitate, doubting yourself that you’re making the right choice?
