Fear

Are you facing your shadow side?

Are you facing your shadow side?

When we go to work on ourselves, its important to be open to the road ahead. Normally one would relate 'working on yourself' or 'growing as a person' to getting better, whatever better looks like? Happier, a more fulfilling life, openness and more opportunities. But the road forward its not always as clear cut as we first think. Remembering that we have both a light side and a shadow side. 

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

There are a few relationships I have where I feel like I can tell my friend absolutely anything and there reaction will be honest and open and nothing else matters. These people, hold space for me to be who I am with no judgement and unconditional love. Do you have these people in your life? On the other hand I feel struggle with many relationships and wonder how to build a deeper connection with someone I want to feel closer to and have a deeper more meaningful friendship or relationship with. Can you relate?

With sport comes the physical training; the greater influence is the mental training.  Commitment, resilience, goal setting, visualisation, day in day out. If your going to the top you need to commit to all of that. But with it also comes flow, ease, enjoyment and most of all something that has dropped into my consciousness in the last few years, intuition. The instinctual feeling and knowingness that so often so many of us choose to ignore. In my mind, this is by far of greatest importance than anything else.

Future Tripping…is a waste of time!

I'd quit my job, brought my ticket (to Buenos Aires) and I was leaving on my own with no real plan. As the saying goes all I had to do next was ‘get a tan, fall in love, and never return.’ Excited was an understatement but in the few days leading up to the new chapter in my life I caught myself future tripping into the worst case possible thought spiral.

Time to face your fears, sharing my journey into Life Coaching

I'd arrived home to a heavy parcel in the mail. I was fairly certain it was the workbook and materials for the life-coaching course I was starting next month. Not having time to open it, I jumped in the car and whizzed off to my next appointment. Upon arriving, I had time to spare and tore the parcel open to reveal my books, a welcoming letter and small gift wrapped in pink tissue paper. My heart raced with excitement, I couldn’t wait to get started with this course.
