Have you ever noticed that what could have seemed like ‘failures’ can sometimes be the foundations for our greatest successes? And how some things that we thought we really wanted are not actually fulfilling? (including that third helping of pudding!)
Sometimes it’s not so much about what we get but how we respond to what we get (and what we make of it).
Last week I shared the first step in making new year’s resolutions that work. If you’re looking to make a change this year, there’s one very important thing to remember:
Real transformation happens when our goals are aligned with our values.
It’s that time of year again!
Are you all excited about setting goals for the new year, or have you become jaded and can’t be bothered anymore?
Either way, you may be right!
Spending time with family brings different words to mind for different people: fun, love, joy excitement, sharing … sometimes. And at other times… different words… perhaps difficult, challenging, frustrating, maybe even downright upsetting and destabilising. Our families made our buttons, so is it any wonder they can push them?
Last week I spoke at the London launch of The Queen’s College Oxford Women’s Network. The main message I wanted to convey? That we all need support, and it’s a myth that we don’t.
As the snow has just melted and spring is approaching, it’s time to reflect on the things we committed to in the new year. Remember those? Are you on track? Are they still relevant and important?
Today I’d like to share three of my favourite inspirational videos with you. Each of their messages is powerful and important. They should help you to feel more confident and empowered as well as enabling you to weather the storms that inevitably come your way from time to time.
As simple human beings we’re all just looking for love. We want to love and be loved.
REAL LOVE begins at home. The best foundation of love for others is love for ourselves. There’s no way around it!
When I was 16 something was said in a school assembly that affected me deeply.
Our teacher asked:
“How often do you think something positive about someone but you don’t tell them?”
Gratitude is talked about a lot these days, and it’s easy to see why. I suspect it’s no coincidence that the subject is coming up increasingly at a time when the political and social backdrop is throwing up so many difficult situations and challenges.
Happy New Year! As we hurtle towards the middle of January, how are your new year’s resolutions holding up? Have you even made any yet?
