Listen When Your Body Speaks

I submitted an application for a job in September 2015. I took 2 weeks to put my application together as the job had asked for a huge amount of information, including a psychometric assessment (my own cost) and a video submission. I built a cv website in the hopes of standing out as an exceptional candidate as I felt she would be getting 100′s if not over 1000...

Irrational Fears

Irrational Fears

Today I learnt the difference between a rational and an irrational fear. I have a lot of irrational fears, mostly born out of a very difficult and lonely childhood. My main fear at present is around career. I ran my own business, which has not turned out to be the success I had dreamed it to be. I made the very difficult decision (mentally) to go back to work...

10 Lies I’ve Told My Children

I’m sure there are more than 10. When I tell another 10 I’ll call it “10 More Lies I’ve Told My Children.” And then the third post might go “Another 10 Lies I’ve Told My Children.” I had a set of books when I was younger. I had a black godfather (yes shock horror, expecially in the days of apartheid). And everytime he visited he would bring me a book....

My Weight Loss Journey

I’m a bit hesitant to write this post and have been putting it off for a month. I feel if I put it down on paper, it’s permanent and if I fail well then…no-one likes disappointment. Especially when it’s ourselves we’ve disappointed. Paper can be burnt, shredded, torn up. Putting it down in a blog is permanent. There’s no ink but Google...
