Life goes on

“In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life – it goes on.” Robert Frost.

Speaking your truth

“People do not seem to realise that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.

 

Making time for change

Making time for change

I’ve received numerous emails or voicemail messages which say “sorry, too busy to come for my coaching session today…”

Resistance is futile

Resistance is futile

Human beings are becoming more anxious (perhaps all living things are). The media tells us so. And in the last year I’ve had an increasing number of requests for support with anxiety.

 

Strike a pose

Strike a pose

Last week, I attended a Yoga class for the first time in my life. This is me doing the downward facing dog….. not.

Laughably awful

“To get good, it’s helpful to be willing or even enthusiastic, about being bad.” Daniel Coyle.

A season of liberation

A season of liberation

I love camping. Last weekend I was at a festival in Upton-on-Severn in Worcestershire. If you’d said to me ten years ago that I’d embrace camping, my response may have been peppered with Anglo-Saxon language!

 

Mortal or God?

Mortal or God?

A recent note I received from The Universe:

“When the external begins to define the internal, Meriel, instead of the internal defining the external, one begins living as a mortal rather than as a god. Trust me, as a god is better. Boom…. The Universe.”

Again and again and again

Again and again and again

Again, again, again! The sound of a small child begging a parent to repeat the exercise. Probably something exciting like a swing, a slide, or the bumps.

My crystal ball

My crystal ball

I’m a bit of a romantic, and often have all sorts of romantic fantasies (no, not in that way) about my life. It’s not just a case of dreaming though, I manage to create and set expectations of how I want things to be. That’s okay, isn’t it?

Travel in style

Travel in style

If cycling was going to be my thing, this is the bike I’d like. Built for style and comfort rather than speed.

In or out? Big or Small?

In or out? Big or Small?
