Asking for What You Need – and Not Getting it

This was written a couple of months ago, but I didn’t feel ready to post it until now.     We often talk about being brave, and vulnerable, and asking for what we want or need. Although it is often mentioned that you need to be ready to “hear no”, we don’t tend to dwell …

Daring to Be Vulnerable: Opening Up

You may have watched Brené Brown‘s amazing TED talk on The Power of Vulnerability, if not you need to go do so. Right now. Yes, I’ll wait.  I have watched this talk, as well as her other talk on Listening to Shame several times and each time I have been cracked wide open and realized that …

Jet Set Radio (Band)

Readers of the old blog might remember a time when I used to share music on a weekly basis, but I stopped doing that when I moved the blog to it’s current location. I felt like the music didn’t add much value to the blog, but there are always exceptions. Jet Set Radio is one such …

Summer To-Do and To-Be List

I have been thinking about posting this for the past couple of weeks, but just never got around to it. It has been a very busy spring for me, but the good kind of busy where you’re meeting and hanging out with loads of cool and wonderful people. I can’t remember where, but at the …

On Writing and Limitations

It has been a long time since I’ve written a proper post that wasn’t a Link Love or  a book review. It’s not that I haven’t got anything to say, I have plenty of my mind, but I have such little time. And yes, I am well aware that you “have time for what you …

My Biggest Fear

Moving to Dublin, Ireland

  Yesterday marked my first two weeks in Ireland. I have had a great – but very busy – time settling in, starting work etc. I have pushed myself to meet new people, and be more social than usual (I am introvert at heart), so out of the past 15 nights I have actually been …

Baby Steps

Last week we talked about the importance of starting before you’re ready. Today I wanted to talk a bit about how to start. Often our projects seem overwhelming and hard to approach, because you don’t know where to begin. Sometimes however, the most important thing, is to just take one step. Any step. Once you get started, it’ll …

Start Before You’re Ready

Last week I had a coaching session with the wonderful Mara from Medicinal Marzipan (something I greatly recommend!), and one thing she said to me really stuck with me: Start before you’re ready. Too often in life we wait for everything to be perfect. Especially those of us who have a bit of a perfectionist streak. We …
