I am lucky enough to be learning a new skill, making stained glass, as part of this amazing group. It has become so much more for me than a class, it’s a place where I’ve found myself again. Source: It’s more than just a communuty class

Letting go of letting-go!
A few years ago, I had a series of heart attacks. From out of nowhere they stopped me in my tracks and made me reconsider everything about my life. You could say they were a major crossroads; I’ve spent a great deal of time since focussed on “letting go” of the feelings I was leftContinue reading “Letting go of letting-go!”
Are you celebrating your successes?
Are you celebrating your successes? In the current financial climate, there is so much negative talk and focus that it is easy to lose sight of our achievements. The successes we have on a daily basis that should be noted and celebrated. Yet these get lost in the noise and overlooked; taking with themContinue reading “Are you celebrating your successes?”
Croeso i Myddfai
can it really be three months since we arrived In Myddfai, in our little piece of Welsh heaven? The time here seems to work on a different schedule at a slower less stressful pace. There are days when it’s suddenly ten o’clock and all I’ve done is feed the birds. It’s wonderful. it is alsoContinue reading “Croeso i Myddfai”
A dirty weekend…
When your husband asks you if you’re “up for a dirty weekend in the woods” it doesn’t take long to feel young and excited again (and rather bloody daring too). At our age, with my health considerations, the idea of camping-out under the stars in a woodland with no traffic or airplane noise is aboutContinue reading “A dirty weekend…”
At any given moment – you can make the choice
I’ve always loved this quote. “At any given moment, you have the power to say ‘this is not how the story is going to end’”. It’s tough to see it sometimes, when you’re so deep into your own issues, your own problems and head-talk. It can be easier to say “there’s nothing I canContinue reading “At any given moment – you can make the choice”
Choose not to “Try”
“I’ll try” – what do you really mean when you say these words? “I probably won’t” or “I’m sure I won’t be able to”? That’s a choice. A choice you make regularly and without thinking. “I’ll try to stick to it this time” becomes your mantra and your choice to accept failure, beforeContinue reading “Choose not to “Try””
Choose to take control
How often do you find yourself lying awake at night, or waking in the early hours, dwelling on something that’s worrying you? Going over and over in your head all the options and possible outcomes, seeing blocks and obstacles in your path. This is a choice. The issue may be a very real one, butContinue reading “Choose to take control”
Choose not to fall
I loved this video from Daniel Ilabaca speaking about parkour and how it allowed him to see his choices and the power he had to embrace them. Embracing our choices and taking responsibility for where they can lead us is demonstrated beautifully. Enjoy.
A choice for yourself
I’ve made a choice for myself today. A choice to give myself time with my daughter. Time to be together and talk, share, laugh, listen, get creative – and yes, probably go shopping too! Both Hannah and I run our own businesses and by the very nature of her work, Hannah runs the officesContinue reading “A choice for yourself”
