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.

Choose colour

   “We can always spot you in a crowd, Dinah – you’re the one who’s wearing bright colours”.  It’s true, I love colour.  My hair is proof of that  and has been all the colours of the rainbow over the years.  Being known for colour in a sea of corporate grey always got me noticedContinue reading “Choose colour”

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”

Pick a choice between one and ten….

Have you got a list of choices?  Choices you’ve been planning to make for a while now; perhaps a long while?  Sometimes it can feel overwhelming – and not knowing where to start can result in not starting at all.  Those choices go un-made or ignored, the progress is stalled or the inevitable is delayed.Continue reading “Pick a choice between one and ten….”

Choose your view

I work in an office room with no natural daylight, tucked away downstairs in our home.  It is a large room, with plenty of space, just no view.  I love my office as it is my private space to create, to focus, to give clients my full attention and I have created my own views,Continue reading “Choose your view”

Now that’s my kind of choice!

It is important to remember that choices can be fun, light-hearted and a joy to make.  I started my day with my usual choice – Lavazza Rossa or Lavazza extra creamy?  That’s my kind of choice! 😉  The second big choice of my day landed in my lap as I sat with my coffee toContinue reading “Now that’s my kind of choice!”

Difficult choices

Choices can be fun, amusing, exciting – even thrilling!  Choices can also be challenging, uncomfortable and difficult.  Sometimes it feels like there are two choices; the bad choice and the worse choice!  The truth is often that we are focusing on the choice itself and the immediate consequences rather than the long-term results. I rememberContinue reading “Difficult choices”

Choose charity

Every Tuesday on Twitter is #CT or #CharityTuesday – a day for people to spread the word about the charities they choose to support and encourage others to follow them and spread the word.  I wonder though, as the # becomes a part of a busier and busier Twitter stream, how many of us stopContinue reading “Choose charity”

Treasure your choices

Today I choose to have fun with my choices, to celebrate the fact that I have choices that are not available to so many.  Today I will choose not to take these for granted, I will acknowledge that choices are fundamental to my life but are not simply mine by right.   Choices are aContinue reading “Treasure your choices”
