Love, Life, and Trying To Control Your Mind

Posted by:

“What the hell was I thinking?”

I have just been reminded that you can’t dictate to your mind what you think and feel.  Telling myself a few weeks ago who I can (and more to the point can’t fancy), and then a few sessions in gleefully telling my coach that the person in question was, almost in Michael Jackson style, ‘out of my mind’ (OK, his song was she’s out of my life but you get my drift, anyway, I digress).

I ...

Oprah’s Next Chapter with Fergie

Posted by:

Sunday mornings have been quite a treat of late, with 3-hours of Oprah Winfrey back to back.  I’m not sure how many shows have aired before my discovering them, but the most recent Oprah’s Next Chapter that I viewed was with Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas.

Simple Ways to Create the Life of Your Dreams – As if by Magic

Posted by:

I have been providing Coaching and Therapy Sessions since the year 2000.  A couple of weeks ago I was going through one of those transition times where I wondered if there was really a point to it all, wondering if I was really making that much of a difference in people’s lives, enough of a difference to keep devoting so much of my time to it.  Asking myself if it was time to put everything that I do down on ...

Last week another name, Cory Monteith, a star of the hit TV show Glee was added to the young drink, drugs and demise list.

Of course we are all going to physically pass away at some point. ...

THOSE CLOUDS REALLY DO HAVE SILVER LININGS

 

The whole thing about ‘Patience’ and ‘Unfolding’ has been a theme of late.

There inevitably started to rise up a bit of frustration and annoyance.  I ...

Inspirations from Life by Marilyn Devonish

 

I just found myself thinking, as I made my customary fresh hot lemon and cinnamon drink to start the day that life inspires me.  Not just the things that you would put in to the ‘good or happy’ category, but also the seemingly bad.  Little things spark my thinking, creativity and curiosity, and inspire me on to bigger and more impactful thoughts, or stop me and cause me to reflect on the seemingly ...

The Ink Pen That Helped Me Write a New Future

I saw this on Dawn Petherick‘s facebook page.  As you will see in a moment, the picture below was the first thing that struck me, followed by the words.
