10 Things I've Learnt This Year

Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts



1. Intensive Change Illuminates Character

As the events of this year began to unfold, I remember speaking at an online University event and I reminded the students that change, whilst it can be challenging, is really good for us.  Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts… If you're going through hell, keep going.” Be ready for the challenge and be ready to push yourself out of your comfort zone.


This year has been a year of change, a tough year of pandemic, politics, quarantine from loved ones and fear.


How we handle change a challenge reveals who we really are. To all of you who...

Do you sometimes feel like a fox in a box trying to escape?

How to deal with your COVID emotion

Can this be true?  Is there some light at the end of the COVID tunnel?  This is the perfect time to reflect on the effect that this pandemic has had on our emotions.  Not only has it caused us anxiety and stress, it has also generated anger. 

Anger is a natural emotion when you are feeling threatened.  You’re like a fox in a box that is trying to escape, particularly when you’re not feeling like you are in the captain's seat and feeling like your accepting unwanted changes.  The problem with anger is that it can snowball.  It takes on a life of its own and it generates its own energy. It can all too easily spiral out of control.   But what is the best thing to do with all that anger.  There are lots of studies that show a real impact on cardiovascular function due to the effects of anger. 

So, what’s the best way to handle anger?

Lockdown changed it all ✨

Nov 16, 2020

If you’re feeling bogged down with Lockdown read this

Is anyone else in Lockdown feeling overwhelmingly grateful?  Today (Sunday as I write this) I’ve look at my little tribe and I can’t help but breath it in.  Sometimes I can’t quite believe where we’ve got to. My gorgeous husband and I built two little people.  They’re a very good reason to take a day off, slow down and appreciate it all. 

Usually we would be racing around with a packed diary of stuff.  Lockdown changed it all.

I’m breathing in every second of being at home and carving out extra time to be still with my people …and not feeling guilty about it.  For me personally it’s an incredible place to be and today I am so grateful to have this time.

BUT after saying all that, I have to confess I’ve found Lockdown really quite challenging.  Can you relate? 

I’ve been working way too much, feeling a lot of pressure,...

Harness The Power Of Uncertainty

Nov 10, 2020

Hello my lovelies,

Like so many other people right now I do not assume that my week will unfold the way I would usually expect.  We recently received an email from Chloë’s school week that one of her teachers unfortunately had contracted COVID so had to self-isolating.  We chose to get tested and we’re thankfully negative.

There were two ways to deal with this situation.  Get super annoyed that we’re unable to go on holiday that we feel like we desperately needed, OR be grateful that we’re in a fortunate position to be able to book a holiday.  I chose the second option. 

In context everything that is going on in the world right now, all the suffering, hardship and pain created by the coronavirus, this uncertainty is certainly a small matter of concern. 

But, it got me thinking.  What do we need to be focusing on during times of uncertainty?

  1. Do not over consume yourself with planning and upcoming events - you...

Why creating real confidence is SO important

Oct 04, 2020

Hello Gorgeous, 

It’s Sunday and I’m feeling very reflective.  September has been full of fun and challenges.  It would be so easy to focus on all the demanding aspects of the month… there have been many! But I made a decision not to.  There’s so much to be grateful for.

Chloë’s loving being back at school, she’s thriving and I’ve seen her confidence sky rocket this month We’re finally finishing an aspect of our apartment renovation that has been on hold for 3 years and it feels GOOD to be near completion.  And Rupert and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve spent some time feeling anxious about things, mostly at 03:00 in the morning; making a very unhelpful dint in my energy levels and it really hasn’t helped me. 

What has helped me?  Tackling my worries head on, making an actionable plan and knowing where I’m heading has led me back to a full...

How Do You Create Real Confidence?

May 03, 2018

We often confuse confidence something you are simply born with.  And whilst there is proof that there is a link between your DNA and your confidence, that is not the whole picture.  Confidence is an acquired skill.   

And why do I think confidence is SO important? I think Katy Perry sums it up quite nicely;   with confidence you can pull off just about anything!

The good news is that you don’t need to have a degree from Oxford or Cambridge, and you don’t need a great degree of sophistication either to create real confidence.

What is confidence?

  • Confidence is assurance or complete and total persuasion.  A firm believe, trust, reliance; the belief in ones abilities.
  • Confidence is an inner conviction about the outcome of a given situation.  The inner conviction that you have the ability to deliver and perform a given situation.
  • Confidence is trust or faith in a person or thing.  When you have a trusting relationship, you have...

Set Yourself Up To Succeed

Mar 20, 2018

It’s liberating when you learn how to push yourself to try and it is empowering when start seeing the results.    

How would it feel if you could stop yourself from worrying and feeling anxious? What could you achieve?

There’s a really close connection between doubt, worry and anxiety.  Self-doubt triggers worry.  You feel insecure. You feel overwhelmed.  It’s these feelings that will hold you back. 

If you’re speaking to your younger self what you tell yourself?  Most people will say that they wish they could have stopped beating themselves up and stop worrying about things.

Worrying is just like self-doubt it’s a habit.  Anxiety is when your body’s state gets connected to what’s going on in your head.  If you don’t resolve this it will lead to panic attacks. 

Have you ever been in a situation when you have almost been in a car crash?   Your body rapidly...

3 Dangerous Confidence Thieves

Mar 13, 2018

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” ~Pablo Picasso


If you don't already know, confidence takes practice.  It sounds strange doesn’t it?  It’s call the confidence-competency loop.  The more you practice the more your confidence grows, and the more this will shine through into the exterior world.

Picasso is one of the most famous and successful artist.  Did you know that throughout his career, he created more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics? Despite the staggering number of pieces he created and his incredible talent he only has a handful of famous paintings. 

Dyson’s breakthrough came after 15 years and 5,127 prototypes. “Designing something that works well requires careful thought and precise measures, then relentless testing and prototyping …it takes time” - Dyson.

But there are also a number of other things that can steal your...
