• Saying Yes – Rising Strong

    Thank God for Brene Brown.  Her research on vulnerability is incredible. We all know that being vulnerable can feel scary, exposing and leaving us open to hurt, ridicule and pain. What she has however shown us, is that there is strength in vulnerability. It isn’t about winning or losing, it is…

    Inspired by Shonda Rhimes and her year of saying “yes”  here is another idea for 2016: I hadn’t heard of The Color Run until one night, when I was sitting at the airport lounge on my way to the UK and one of my girlfriends posted a picture to her…

    As Kirsten is currently travelling in India, I copied this directly from her website so you could get to know a bit about her, in her own words now… Throughout my life, I’ve balanced on that line between creative and technical pursuits, sometimes leaning a little more to one side…

  • Saying Yes

    Whether you like Oprah or not, her Masterclasses are great opportunities to learn from people who are actually doing what they say they want to. It isn’t about winning or losing, it is about being in the game. Shonda Rhimes talked about changing her life by spending a year, saying…

  • From Darkness into the Light

    There are so many ways to say that – from illness to wellness, from weakness to strength, from discomfort to comfort. What nobody tells us is that challenges and adversity are normal parts of life and rather than running from them, we should learn to deal with them. This is…

  • The Trap of Perfectionism

    It seems that every place I turn right now, everybody is asking “Are people really doing the best they can?” I just started reading Brene Brown’s new book Rising Strong, so perhaps the fact that this is coming to me from everywhere else at the same time, is a personal…

  • The Cute Cure

    Whether you believe it or not, there is now scientific proof that pets have heart strengthening, blues fighting, body-slimming and stress-calming super powers. I know it may not seem like that when you are cleaning out the litter box or taking your puppy out for the 3rd time at 4am,…
