Coaches kicking back – aka be with your tribe!

By |2019-04-17T17:22:42+00:00April 17th, 2019|

At the weekend, I met up with 2 fabulous coach friends of mine: Liz Abram and Caroline Gibbs – you can find them on insta @lizabram and @coachingtogether. We met up at the M&S café just on the outskirts of Ashbourne where we commenced the catch up over coffee / tea and, for me, a [...]

Challenging times … and how to face them

By |2019-03-10T19:13:51+00:00March 10th, 2019|

Well, here’s an admission – despite being an upbeat and positive person most of the time, I do, on occasion, still get frustrated and fed up with the challenges that life throws at me. When this happens, I will allow myself – give myself permission, if you like – to have 24-48 hours to wallow in [...]

Meeting the lovely Dr David Hamilton

By |2019-03-04T19:39:20+00:00March 4th, 2019|

What a fabulous man Dr David Hamilton is … swoon. He was brought to my attention a few years ago by a good friend of mine, a fellow coach, who has seen him talk many times in Solihull. She has always raved about his presence and his energy-aligned talks around kindness and health. Over the [...]

15 Park Runs done already!

By |2019-03-04T19:33:38+00:00March 4th, 2019|

Wowzer! 15 Park Runs completed already. It’s amazing how the quickly they seem to clock up – which is great as I still have another 35 to go to reach my target of 50 during 2019. I’m hoping that it will be achievable although this month I will miss two due to other commitments. But [...]

Running straight into 2019

By |2019-01-09T19:14:33+00:00January 9th, 2019|

Having reflected upon what I achieved during 2018, I decided to take some time to think about the year ahead – what changes did I want to make so that it would be an easier year for me? How could I do this while remaining successful and progressive in terms of development? My health and [...]

Happy New Year, one and all!

Photo by Simon Migaj from Pexels I hope you’ve had a fabulous festive season and wish you all the very best for 2019. May it be full of love and happiness, passion, purpose, and excitement too. Upon reflection, 2018 was an awesome year. Some of the highlights included: Receiving life lessons about boundaries [...]

Supporting each other …

By |2018-12-18T19:54:00+00:00December 18th, 2018|

As I’ve talked about in previous posts, I’ve galvanised myself back into running and have recently started attending my local Saturday morning Park Run. A couple of weeks ago, I arrived and bumped into Mari – someone I’ve got to know over the last few years, but only in a ‘hello, how are you?’ kind [...]

Talking of Speaking …

By |2018-12-18T19:50:57+00:00December 18th, 2018|

Wow! I’ve had a mad few weeks and have suddenly realised that my blogging has started to lag behind my social media posts. Crikey, there are SO many platforms to consider these days … I admit that I’m a work in progress on all this stuff. In fact, we are all a work in progress. [...]

Mindfulness on the M1

By |2018-11-19T15:28:50+00:00November 19th, 2018|

Mindfulness is a word that is commonplace these days. It’s a term that, I like to believe, embodies and describes the way I’ve been living my life. And in more recent years, following my coach training, being more acutely aware of the impact that thoughts, words and actions have on those around us and, more [...]

Fuelling my fitness!

By |2018-10-13T13:16:47+00:00October 13th, 2018|

Yay! I’ve been for a run today. And it felt good! At this point, it’s still a ‘run-walk’ as I start to build my fitness levels back up. It’s the second time I’ve been out in the last 10 days. I would have done more, but I’ve had a mad busy few days that have [...]
