Fold, Scrunch or…

  My life turned into a joke at the weekend – literally! We’ve all heard that old gag about the person being in a public toilet cubicle and the person in the next cubicle says “Hello?” And the gag teller replies with ‘Hello’ and starts conversing with the other cubicle dweller only to be talkedContinue reading “Fold, Scrunch or…”

Making the World a Better Place One Laugh at a Time

 A conversation with a group of friends on the notion of success in comedy provoked me to write down for the first time my mantra when it comes to comedy. I’ve verbalised it often enough but never written it down before and it has been an interesting exercise. It goes something like this: I measureContinue reading “Making the World a Better Place One Laugh at a Time”

Cutting Ties to the Past

Way back in the mists of time, when dinosaurs stalked the earth and the gods still supped with the mortals (so, somewhere around 1978) I used to be an apprentice hairdresser. Yes, no shit. I spent four years shampooing, cutting, tinting and asking people where they were going for their holidays. I loved the job.Continue reading “Cutting Ties to the Past”

I Close My Eyes and Jump

Goodness gracious what a week! I had always imagined that when days arrive that will change my life, they would be huge and dramatic. Maybe fireworks and heavenly choirs, marching bands and trumpets, a boom or two of thunder and lightning splitting the sky. But what really happened was an unprecedented overwhelming wave of peace,Continue reading “I Close My Eyes and Jump”

The Leonies in Your Life

  In the rush of the week the lesson became clear. As the days clicked by towards the weekend the drama stepped up a notch and I had a choice; observe it and sail above it, or be caught up within it and feel it deplete my inner resources. Hey, I’m not perfect so ofContinue reading “The Leonies in Your Life”

What Looks Like the End is Actually the Beginning

Last week I had a rare privilege. I got to see what it could be like if my life was coming to a close. It was all a bit dramatic – I wasn’t feeling good after a bout of pneumonia and my GP took one look at me, slapped me on the surgery’s ECG machineContinue reading “What Looks Like the End is Actually the Beginning”

Enough To Be Pondering On

Where does your divinity lie?                        Is it something or someone in the sky you implore in times of need? Is it something you tap into daily in a conversational style? Is it something you work with cooperatively, not minding whether it’s god or just the set of physical and metaphysical laws we can’t yet identify?Continue reading “Enough To Be Pondering On”

The Best is Yet to Come

It has been a while since I’ve blogged again. It has been another time of great change, learning and processing. I’ve begun studies in Coaching and even in just the pre-intake learning, I’m learning so much about myself, about why I do the things I do and how I can take control of them, thatContinue reading “The Best is Yet to Come”

Gratitude – The Law of Attraction’s Rocket Fuel

I have a fabulous friend and mentor, and when we get together our discussions around everything from business to peoples’ potential and metaphysics can really take us to places of new discovery. One such discussion took place a few weeks ago that really gave me food for thought. We came around to the subject of Continue reading “Gratitude – The Law of Attraction’s Rocket Fuel”

Mothering Your Dreams

The theme of Mothers’ Day and the contemplation of what it is to be a mother, to provide nurture, led me to think about the act of giving birth when it comes to bringing our dreams to life. There is the moment of fertilisation – that time when an idea takes hold and declares it’sContinue reading “Mothering Your Dreams”
