Sunny September

  How different the world appears when the sun is out.  One morning (a week or so ago) I woke up at 5.30am after eight hours restful sleep, feeling like I’d arrived in a new place; it was like I’d finally worked out how life works (and it’s a lot easier to navigate than...

A beautiful day…

I went to my favourite cafe again last Friday and picked a small sunny table by the window.  It was warm enough to sit outside, but I chose to be inside because it inspired me to write more the other week (plus the Sicilian cheesecake is divine!).  I ate half, and then wrote the...

Life and Cheesecake

  I was drawn to my favourite coffee shop last Friday lunchtime to have lemon cheesecake whilst watching the world go by.  Having eaten a few forkfuls, I left the rest until after I had spilled my thoughts onto paper; I felt it was the right time to record some important lessons I had...

Review your habits…

It’s been a challenging and insightful week, but also very exhausting.  I’ve had a few days off to recharge my batteries and think about how I can move things forward.  This is helping my back and neck feel better, but I’ve also learnt that the reason I am experiencing what I am is because...

Looking upon pain as a learning opportunity

If you experience pain, have a think about what it is forcing you to do. This week has been a big step forward in terms of identifying the cause of my headaches.  This is because I listened to others, tried a few different things, increased my awareness of my body and how it works...

For those of you that read My Writing Notebook blog will already be aware of this – I had a lovely surprise from my family this week on Valentine’s Day.  After being told not to arrive home until 7pm (which left me walking around outside for 25 minutes catching up on phone calls) I...

Discovering my Purpose and Passion in Life

  Another fantastic and eye-opening week on the self-improvement front, highlights of which are touched upon in this blog.  To recap on last week’s blog (Tangible Results), I felt like I had crossed the line and I like this side much better!  I don’t feel stressed or worried about anything – even the slight...

Tangible Results

I’ve made real progress on the happiness side this week.  It’s not because of anything specific, but rather an overall feeling of happiness and positivity.  It’s almost like I’ve crossed a line somewhere (and I definitely don’t want to go back!).  I’ve been doing an exercise detailed in the book Get the Life you Want, and in summary...

Rest and Relaxation Required!

This week has been an eye-opener for me because I thought that with my new sleeping pattern and improved work routine, my headache issue would be resolved.  This was until Wednesday when I got the start of another ‘two day’ headache and had to take Thursday off work because of the pain – it...
