Welcome back! I’m under construction, thank you for your patience.

Well hello! It’s been ages since I wrote my last blog. I’d been feeling increasingly exhausted and a little burnt out. I’ve had to temporarily give up volunteering. I couldn’t give it the time and attention that it deserved. I couldn’t even give those two basic things to myself either. I came off Facebook for a short while too. I felt like I wanted to run away and hide. I’m not quite sure what from.. myself probably!

The thing about running away is, that you can run, but you can’t hide. At least not for long…and not from yourself anyway. You end up running around in circles trying to avoid yourself/issues, until you eventually crash into yourself. “Oh hi, I’ve been trying to hide from you.” Ha ha, gotcha!

I’m learning to be less hard on myself. After all, it’s not got me anywhere so it’s clearly not working! Time to give myself the love, care and attention that I have been giving to others. If I was my own best friend I wouldn’t be so hard on her… !

So after having a week off work, plus developing deeper, consistent spiritual practices to get me through; I am feeling like a new woman. Consistency and commitment to myself, that’s the way forward… cos I’m worth it, and I’m lovable!

So, what am I going to be doing? Well, I’m so glad you asked!

I’m going to be part of a life coaching pool at work, which is great news! I really feel like I can make a positive difference to people’s lives. I feel this will grow and flourish as well.

I’m also planning to attend a public speaking workshop with Richard McCann. For those who haven’t heard of him – his Mother, Wilma McCann, was tragically murdered by Peter Sutcliffe back in 1975. He has written books about his harrowing and traumatic life. Well worth reading. Please look him up if he speaks to you. He’s an incredible, motivational speaker. Using his words to help and inspire others, to turn their lives around too. And I can’t wait to meet him!

It can be very healing and therapeutic writing out our stories. You never know who will be touched by your words. Words are very powerful, they can uplift or crush, so choose them wisely.

I’m going to use mine to empower, and to help make a positive difference. Even if it’s one person per day, my words can have a positive effect to help them turn their life around. Like the ripples on a pond when you throw a stone in. Ever increasing circles, expanding and reaching out…

I think I’ve been so busy hiding, and worrying about whether people are judging me, that the one person who has been my harshest critic has been me…

Life is way to short isn’t it. It’s time to get myself out there and be seen and heard. We’ve all got something special to share. There’s a lot of joy in sharing, and making others happy. It’s contagious! If we know we’ve made someone happy, then it makes us happy too. And that sounds like a win-win to me…

And so, it begins… it’s time……
