So what? It's a New Year and?
The other day, the weather person on the television said "The weather on the 1st January 2022 will be very similar to the weather on December 31st".
And here I was thinking that things would be different in 2022...
Not really, just messing with you.
So why on earth is everyone writing down goals, creating vision boards, and making New Year resolutions?
Because that's what we do?
No, because that is what I want you to do
because, if you do,
you will sign up for one of my programs, …
It's not Christmas' Fault...
It's been a tough one this year, another tough one for millions of us.
Flights canceled, new variants, rising numbers, isolation, a compilation of more and more disappointments as the big day loomed.
Father Christmas came and went but did not bring some of us the gifts of the family gathering we dreamt about.
Father Christmas, it appears is also fully vaccinated... which is kind of pushing the boat out as far as propaganda is concerned. Last year, he was given special clearance by the Irish G…
I don't even like turkey!
I don't even like turkey. I truly don't.
And yet, every year, I cook the blasted bird. I won't tell you why I don't like turkey, because that is irrelevant. What matters to me is that year after year, I end up cooking it.
And don't even mention Brussel sprouts!
Why do I cook stuff I do not like?
Tap tap tap.
The answer is obvious.
Because I don't want to upset anyone.
So, let's be clear. I cook food I hate because I do not want to upset my family. Because it is Chistmas.
So I cook the Tu…
Ha... Christmas is looming
With all its joys and traditions. Such excitement awaits!
But is this really what happens?
I tell you how it goes.
A lot of people flying all over the place, flights delayed and canceled, frontiers closed at a moment's notice, terrible road traffic, disappointments, etc.
To go and spend time
with people, you have not seen for at least a year or more likely two
with whom you never got on (hence not seeing them for a year or two)
but whom you feel duty-bou…
Full Moon - Is there an antidote to anxiety?
It's the Full Moon on Saturday.
What do I care, I hear you mutter under your breath as you try to remember whether you have bought a present for your neighbour's dog or whatever it is that is making you stressed at the moment.
My brain is tired and frazzled too.
Christmas is in a week and my mind is wondering if my little London family will make it through Wales and actually turn up? What ifs are buzzing around like irritating wasps.
And it is the Full Moon and I like living my life followi…
Brain not working quite right?
I have heard it called Pandemic Fatigue, Covid Fog, Covid Brain... but it matters not what we call it.
What I know and experience myself is that my brain is not performing as well as it did way back when.
When what? I hear you cry.
When the world, our world ended.
And I find I am not entirely sure when that was. Do you have that problem too? Not remembering when things happened before. You know, before the Great Shutdown.
My friends and clients can be equally vague. We don't remember when o…
Buttered Toasts or else...
Another day, another set of restrictions, another panic.
Wherever you are in the world, it is panic time again and another opportunity to reach for our old friend food to help us cope with the onslaught.
My heart missed a beat when I heard the latest.
I know that we are told to avoid the News but I am not entirely convinced that it is realistic.
So I do listen and indeed the timing could not possibly be worse.
FOR GOODNESS SAKE! We are a mere 15 days from Christmas Eve!
Reaching for butt…
New Moon Thoughts
It's the New Moon! With an eclipse too! Hurrah!
I am not even sure what that means but I am told it is vitally important, that I need to surrender, let it go, release all the things and stories that need releasing.
Get rid of the Old to make room for the New!
So there I am, getting rid of the old stories that I tell myself about any number of things: old patterns, old sagas, old adventures, old old old...
As I was busily doing all the cutting of ties, the burning of the papers, this morning,…
Flight or Fight or Focus and do?
As you might have read before, because, let's face it, I am pretty open about my own personal struggles, I suffered from a terrible bout of anxiety before I was due to go to London, last week.
Of course, I "tapped on it".
Tapping kind of helped a bit but was not as effective as it usually is.
Now, in my long experience of the technique, if it does not work very well, it is because I am tapping on the wrong thing or using the wrong words.
This is why prospective clients often tell me they "tr…
