Yes, sometimes I don't know WTF I'm doing...

Here's what happens when you have a big vision for your life in the world and you start moving towards it:

- You piss people off 

- People misunderstand you and decide they don't want to work with you, don't like you or think you're crazy, irresponsible and rude. And unfair. 

- You spend hours thinking, procrastinating and lying on your bed, the floor and in the bath with fuck all to show for it.

My housemate called me a d*ck

My housemate called me a d*ck

So I was chatting away at dinner the other day and I was talking about my Chemistry GCSE result (no, I can’t remember why). And I couldn’t remember what it was, so with a furrow in my brow was saying quizzically “Was it an A or a B? I think it was a B. I can’t remember."

My housemate just looked at me and said: 

“You’re such a d*ck”

Getting supported (Yes leaders need to eat!)

Getting supported (Yes leaders need to eat!)

I used to think being supported meant you were weak. That you didn't have the know how to do things by yourself - from start to finish, and therefore you were somewhat 'less than'.

I also had this idea that being supported in any kind of household chore was snobby and elitist. That you weren't fully in your 'role as a woman' if you outsourced anything 'householdy' (SO much in that but will leave that for another email).

Tears pricked my eyes as I climbed the hill. 

At nothing in particular and at everything in that moment. 

It was my early morning walk and I was reflecting on the events of the preceding days. What one of my clients was facing. Using my intuition. How I was communicating. Being a coach means that when something comes up in your client’s life, you know damn well there is something in there for you as well.

The Law of Attraction is a law, like gravity, which allows us to attract (co-create) the experiences we want in our lives. 'Co-create’ - as in with Life/the Universe and ourselves. 

Basically, if you want to create a new set of circumstances in your life (for example that are WAY better, more fun, loving, happy and joyful - anyone?), you can use the Law of Attraction to put this into play.

Room with an (Italian) view

Room with an (Italian) view

I remember the first day I really 'got' that I could use the Law of Attraction. I'd spent months (ahem, years) reading about examples, huge scepticism in my mind towering over a tiny voice within me saying 'But maybe it works...'

I was living in Pisa with a week left on my tenancy. I was torn - should I go back to England for a while or stay in Italy? I had moved mountains to leave my job, give away my stuff and get on the plane to go there in the first place...was I really ready to leave?

It was a rainy Monday. 

I’d not had a productive day. I felt a heaviness in my body and my hip was playing up.

I decided to text one of my best friends and fellow coach, Natalie

"I keep pissing everyone off” I wrote.

Feeling festively plump?

So it’s those post-holiday days and some of us maybe feeling, rather, well, full. And it can be times like these we have two thoughts. 

1) is our vague ideas to gather up our gym bag and check on our membership or head off out for a run, because our body is suspiciously heavier than it used to be.

and 2) that we begin to loathe a little on our bodies (ever done this?).
The post Christmas sales shopping maybe meant we found ourselves in front of a full length mirror looking at our bodies and thinking ‘I’m sure I was never this shape before'

How I healed my chronic hip pain naturally

How I healed my chronic hip pain naturally

Delighted to have been featured on MindBodyGreen this month: 

The boiler had broken at work, and it was cold in the office. Usually the cheery chatterbox of the team, I had snapped at my colleagues. As I bent my head over my work, I could almost see the looks being exchanged and knew one of them was probably typing an email to the rest of the team saying "What is up with HER today?" My boss took me into a meeting room and asked me what was wrong.

The tears began to flow, and I poured out a story of everything being "a bit too much." She sent me home for a week.

You've probably heard you have to do this....

You've probably heard you have to do this....

You've probably heard you have to do this to create the life that you want:

Have the right mindset
Undo the limiting beliefs
Believe that you can do it


It's all very well saying this - it's true by the way - our beliefs DO shape our reality, because we act on them, give off a 'vibe' based on what we believe and talk about what is true for us (all this putting into play the Law of Attraction as I mentioned last week - if you missed it, it's here)

BUT HOW DO YOU ACTUALLY GET THE RIGHT MINDSET???

Does celebration feel like a long way off?

In the last few weeks, I've felt a momentous TIDE of change.

I've moved in to a new home, a beautiful apartment here in Devon. This has been a huge lesson in trust for me - receiving my desires manifested physically and I'm so excited to support myself in a gorgeous new environment with more space and new energy.

I've spent a refreshing few days at my 'other' home in Vicenza, Italy, feeling into what my relationship with Italy looks in the future, reconnecting with my friends, letting myself speak the language more easily than I had done before and enjoying some yummy coffee and going on a midnight hunt for an gelateria that was still open....

From 'brutto' to 'beautiful'

From 'brutto' to 'beautiful'

I'm back to Italy this week!
It's the route that's become familiar to me now - BA flight then train to Vicenza, where I lived last year. I have pizza with my housemate planned, then a trip to see the girls at the spa and beauty salon I go to in town, probably a little shopping trip with one of my friends and at least a couple of mornings sipping coffee in the main piazza or people watching with a gelato.
