Difficult People

I can be a difficult person.  For some people.  Some of the time.  Probably, you can be too. Sometimes my energy is strong, or out of proportion. Sometimes I don’t respond in the way that the other person wants or needs. And sometimes people get upset, irritated or annoyed, with me. Sometimes I get annoyedContinue reading “Difficult People”

How can your Body help you to manifest your visions and dreams?

A few yeas back I worked with a single expat who had recently arrived in Belgium. We spent some time reflecting on where he wanted to be 3 years ahead of time, as he would be moving on to his next project. He told me he would be married, and have a child. He alsoContinue reading “How can your Body help you to manifest your visions and dreams?”

Listen to those Voices inside your head

Are you the same person when you go the office as when you pick up your child from school? Or when you greet your spouse after you haven’t seen then for a while, as when you go clothes shopping, or meet up with a friend?

Shift your mood and find your gratitude

I had gotten off a call with a friend. I felt so much warmth between us on the call that it was almost palpable. He told me that he had seen this photo of me, as it had been posted on FaceBook. He mentioned it as he was speaking about history – my history andContinue reading “Shift your mood and find your gratitude”

Do You make mistakes?

I know that I do make mistakes and sometimes they are big ones – ones that I really wished I hadn’t made. Sometimes when you make a mistake you can do real damage. You can hurt yourself, or other people. For example, if you do a bad mistake whilst driving you might cause an accidentContinue reading “Do You make mistakes?”

Is Happiness an Inside Job?

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege and the honour to speak at the First ever Serious Waffle Session.
As a trainer and facilitator, I am used to standing up in front of people and talking to them. But I had never given a proper speech before!! Truth be told, I was terrified! Agreeing to give this talk was challenging me in more ways than I had bargained for. Is happiness an inside job?
