A few years back I was sent a book (amongst other things) as my reward for donating money to someone wanting to start a business. The book was called Two Minute Mornings by Neil Pasricha. The concept of the book is pretty simple, each page is the same. You write the date, something you'll let … Continue reading Have you got 2 minutes?
A week without Instagram
At the start of the year I logged out of Instagram for what I thought would be a day but I ended up not being on it for a week. Below are my some of my thoughts: Over the past week I was reminded of the power of familiarity. One of the things that keeps … Continue reading A week without Instagram
A new years resolution by any other name
When it comes to new years resolutions the way I see it is that it's simply a record of what you want for yourself. The term new years resolutions has gotten a bad rap over the years. It's associated with a sort of temporary promise that you make at the start of the year and … Continue reading A new years resolution by any other name
How to tell if it’s working?
When you start implementing things like therapy, meditation, journaling, EFT, personal growth, personal development, reading self help books or whatever else it might be, you'll get to a point where you're asking yourself if it's working and maybe if it ever will work. You might find yourself questioning whether dedicating, time, energy and money to … Continue reading How to tell if it’s working?
The wrong time to apologise
When you're in a situation where someone doesn't like what you said or how you feel, your instinct may be to apologise.

It probably won't make you enough to earn a living but you can make … Continue reading Money for nothing*
Easy and fulfilling
Those are 2 words I'd use to describe the things we often end up doing in our free time. We look at what requires the least effort and go with it. Then, once it's over, we don't feel great because we know we'd have been better off doing something else. In an ideal world things … Continue reading Easy and fulfilling
Making the leap
If there's a gap between your life and the life you want, something has to change. Life can change or you can change. One of my major underlying themes for 2022 was change. Not my usual small scale gentle change. It was the large scale, transformative change. I'm starting to understand that there are benefits … Continue reading Making the leap
Willing to change
Often one of the things that stops us making necessary changes in our lives is this idea that we might prefer the way things were. We forget that many changes aren't permenant. If you cut your hair, it'll grow back or you can get a wig. If you leave your industry to try something new … Continue reading Willing to change
Why I’ve decided not to quit
I've previously written a post titled Short term creative projects. It was about things not needing to last, about having temporary projects and producing work in seasons. Those thoughts came from me wanting to make changes with how I choose to create moving forward. I've always struggled to keep a long-term vision. I find myself … Continue reading Why I’ve decided not to quit
