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”

Choose to play

My morning has been full-on today!  Starting as always with #thebreakfastclub at 6.45am on Twitter which was promptly followed by two client sessions and a trip to the shops before my next client at 11.15.  It could seem overwhelming – but I still choose time for play.  Time to play with a ball (inside today)Continue reading “Choose to play”

Choose a smile

It’s such a simple thing; a smile requires so little effort and creates such an impact. We have to choose to do it yet often we choose a response that results in confrontation or just dis-engagement. I remember when I was in my wheelchair and people would stare at me. It made me feel uncomfortableContinue reading “Choose a smile”

Audrey’s Theme

This sentiment connected with me in a powerful way. It’s not about putting offContinue reading “Audrey’s Theme”

Choose to dream

Many people are inspirational in the way they have the courage to stand by their dreams.  To choose to focus on a dream, a goal that seems huge to others, can be a lonely experience.  So often, those around you will not share the vision you have and cannot understand your commitment – your choiceContinue reading “Choose to dream”

Celebrating Choice

Choices are often tiny little decisions in our lives that seem, at the time, insignificant or unimportant.  It is often only once the actions of our choices have been played out that we see how important a choice truly was.  Today, I’m celebrating the choices that lead to this moment – right where I amContinue reading “Celebrating Choice”

Choose your view

In Monday’s blog I suggested you choose your theme tune for the week – a piece of music that helps set your mood.  Today, I would like you to add something visual to the mix.  Choose an image that helps you focus on a dream or a goal, something that connects you with a choiceContinue reading “Choose your view”

Choose to put your feet up

Sometimes we struggle on when it is not the right thing to do.  Sometimes we convince ourselves that we simply “can’t miss this appointment” or that “they’ll think less of me if I take a day off”.  Sound familiar?   And when we hear this little voice in our head, we make a choice; often theContinue reading “Choose to put your feet up”
