Autumn’s rapture of resilience

Sunday 26th October, 2014

On the cusp of winter, the trees are making their final kaleidoscopic overtures celebrating their year.

It’s a beautiful explosion of autumn colour: reds, oranges, yellows and every shade in between. These leaves that have lived once make their grand finale before they fall. We take it for granted that a new leaf, that has never existed before and never will again, will grow in the Springtime.

It is a symphony in colour, demanding that we notice the call to honour the earth, honour the people around us and honour ourselves.  more »

Be present and tune into resilience

Thursday 2nd October, 2014

Be present and tune into the abundance of resilience that you are intrinsically bound up in: a constantly changing environment of adapting, growing, releasing and creating. more »

See abundance where you least expect it

Saturday 27th September, 2014

When you are feeling stuck, it’s easy to believe that there is no abundance in your life…or rather that there is a lot of stuff, but it’s not good!

Abundance is about fullness, an overflow of goodness. When you are happy, you see in everything around you.

It’s harder to look for when you are not somewhere that you want to be. more »

How to get out of the ‘Waiting Places’

Saturday 20th September, 2014

Whenever I’ve been working to overcome a challenge in my life, there always seems to be this ‘Waiting Place’…a bit like the Doldrums on the ocean. You’re not moving forward or back. You just seem stuck when you most want to move forward.

I know at those times, I was desperate to be anywhere else but there, yet I didn’t trust my own decision making to find a new path. more »

What happens when you force yourself to reconsider?

Sunday 14th September, 2014

Even when a situation looks barren and empty, there are steps that can be taken.

By virtue of the fact that there don’t appear to be choices, you are forced to consider, create and innovate new solutions.

So consider something that’s happening for you this week, where it feels like there are no options. Go wild, make a list starting with the craziest things that you could do to break out of this zone! more »

What does ‘Never Give Up’ mean to you?

Sunday 7th September, 2014

Did things turn out the way that you wanted them to this week?

If not, it’s easy to see obstacles to your projects, dreams and hopes as an ending.

When you come up against them, your confidence and self-esteem are shaken. You question what it means about you.

You feel raw. You may want to give up.

Don’t!!! more »

Do you trust yourself to decide?

Sunday 17th August, 2014

If you’re struggling to make a decision right now and can’t pick from the options that are in front of you, then don’t force yourself to choose.

Whether it is personal or professional, take some time out to stop and breathe and ‘come back to yourself.’

It may be that you keep walking to the tipping point and then away from it, wanting to be sure of ‘something’ that you can’t quite put your finger on. more »

The Guardian: Round Table 7 April 2010

 I sat as a panel member at a round table event hosted by The Guardian in April 2010. Its focus  was on the need for UK charities to develop their commercial skills so that they operated more effectively as social businesses. As a consequence they would create a better social return on investment. Click here to read more.
