‘UNEQUIVOCALLY ME’

COME AND SHARE MY JOYS, FEARS AND HUMOROUS OUTLOOK ON LIFE

The Space In Between

The Space In Between

Being ‘in between’ is an odd feeling. Like those awkward years when you feel like an adult but you’re told to sit at the kids table. For a time you feel like you don’t fit anywhere, but you do know that you have outgrown a part of yourself and that it is time to move...

The Ever Evolving Artist

The Ever Evolving Artist I asked a musician friend of mine how does he feel when he is asked to keep going back and playing old songs? It was something that no one had asked him before. After a little thought his reply was that it was difficult.  So how do you keep...

Welcome to 2020

Welcome to 2020! I only have a small mailing list. In fact I probably spend more time procrastinating about what I need to write in a newsletter that the amount of people that actually read it.  I do not pretend to be someone I am not, nor do I spend time and money on...

Fearing Success

Fearing Success

I was reminded last week that when we fear success we actually block it from happening. This can happen with so many things that our hearts desire. Loosing weight, a loving relationship, a fantastic career. We find subtle ways (and not so subtle ways) to self sabotage...

Enlightenment | To be or not to be? That is the question.

Enlightenment | To be or not to be? That is the question.

I have long forgotten asking the Universe why things happen the way they do. I never project too far into the future because I am never sure what is around the corner for me, so I live my days as much in the moment as I can and surround myself with those that I love. ...

Through My Fathers Eyes
