Look In The Right Place

Last week a damp patch appeared on the ceiling just under our en-suite bathroom. The patch was directly below where the shower is and it seemed logical to believe that there must be something wrong with the shower.

Investigating the cause was going to be complicated.  With under floor heating, floor boards and to top it all the bathroom had just been redecorated; there was going to be so much work not to mention the mess.  Because of this we took the decision to look to at solving the problem through other methods. 

Over the next few days my hubby tried various ways to pin-point the leak.  Buckets of water passed up and down stairs, tiles were lifted and towels were placed in strategic areas around the shower base in his vein attempt to solve the mystery of where the water was coming from, all this with very little success.  The only thing that happened was that the leak simply got worst, dripping through the ceiling and creating a hole.

So the floorboards and heating were going to have to come up.

Reasons Why I'm The Coach For You

Personal development has always been a life passion of mine and being able to see others potential more than they see in themselves is something that I have always been great at. I suppose that's why I tended to be a sounding board for my friends and family.

From a very early age I was told that to have what I wanted in life I must work hard. So, taking this literally I did.

At an early age I became an Area Manager of one of the largest building societies in England, overseeing a wide area, several branches, which came with huge targets.

Live Your LIfe "Naked" - An Invitation

This is simply a little reminder and invitation to the fantastic Life Coaching, Spa and Wellbeing Day I am hosting for you on the Saturday 15th March at Holmer Park Spa and Leisure it's going to be fun, transformational and something you really will not want to miss!

Now as you know my mission is to empower all women like you to find a deeper sense of happiness and more fulfillment in life.  I believe that we all have a desire for fun and to experience life at it's best no matter what is going on in our life and I want to show you how easy it is to have that choice.

Many of us are flawed in how we pursue our wants and needs, we think that setting intentions and taking steps toward them is enough, the thing is it's not! To create anything new, we must first remove the obstacles that are in the way.

Live Your Life "Naked"

Ok, Live Your Life "Naked" what's it all about?  Last week I was watching old videos of my children.  It was a summers day and we were in the garden, the pool was out and they were running around naked without a care in the world, as it should be! This made me think, not for the first time.

Before I tell you what I was thinking  let me ask you a question - how comfortable are you about being naked?  I'm not talking about on the beach or in the changing rooms of your health club but simply with yourself - when is the last time that you really looked at yourself in the mirror, in the buff, without anything on simply in your birthday suite?  And when you did what did you see?

I Get It!

Are you doing something that you love? Do you feel that working is the best way to spend your time? Does it bring out the best in you and do you love it? If you do then congratulate yourself on making the right choices in life. If not then I get it!

9 years ago last month I left my "safe and secure job" there had be change after change and the work really wasn't fitting with my life any more but at the same time there at the back of my mind was a voice telling me ".. you'd be foolish to leave ..." even though I was miserable I was also too scared to do anything about it!  Until one day when I actually heard myself comforting someone ....

"'ve got to grab life by the balls and do what you love, only when you find the courage to do this will you see what happiness is. The thought of failure is stopping you, but what's the worst that can happen and at least you will know..."

We Only Have One Life!

Recently I was introduced to someone new, she was young and full of life. Over the months we talked on the phone, passing comment on the weather and other chit-chatty things.  One day last year she mentioned she was pregnant.  Our conversations switched to one of babies, pregnancy and morning sickness as she enjoyed being pregnant and looked forward to the birth. She was sickeningly healthy throughout her term.  I remember joking one day that she was lucky, remembering how ill I had been with my first.

Last July she had a healthy little baby boy. He was born by cesarean section and unfortunately it was then that the doctors found out that she had an aggressive form of cancer which needed immediate treatment. The sad news is that 3 week s ago.she died. She never left hospital, the cancer was to advanced.  That little baby will never lie in his mothers arms.

5 Steps To Creating More Time

Have you ever felt like there is never enough time? That no matter how well you think you're doing time, is never on your side?  I used to constantly find myself running late, rushing here, there and apologising for being late.  Over the years I have learnt a few thing that no matter what I do, I know I will always have enough time to get the things I want to do.

How do I do it?  Well it took a little thought and some practice but I'm finally there!  If you are anything like I was you might find what I learnt useful.

1. I realised that with every want there would always be a pay-back.  Being aware of what the payback was made it that much easier to make changes e.g. when I wanted to include some exercise in my day, I had to choose to get up an hour earlier several times a week to fit it in. What will you have to give up or put aside to make room?
