My Thoughts

How often do you say ‘f*ck it’ and even though you know there’s something you should be doing to help you – you do the complete opposite? This week in the membership, we covered self sabotage as a topic.   Here’s some of the ways that the group self sabotages that we discussed over the two …
Why does it cut to the core when you feel someone doesn’t like you? What sparks off those social media battles? Why do you feel uneasy because you’ve potentially upset someone? Or discomfort because you feel like you are bothering someone? Often when we feel like that you can: Lie awake worrying about it Do …
One of my friends the other day asked me if I felt completely consumed by motherhood. And the truth is I don’t. I’ve never been busier.  Never had so many kids (I have 4 busy boys).  But I don’t feel consumed by motherhood. Yes, I have occasional sh*tty days, days where I just want to …

Last week I covered what self worth is and why it’s important.  This week, I want to cover what stops us looking after ourselves and our needs. It’s all to easy to say… yes ok I understand I need to look after myself so I’m a better mum….but then we get in the way of …
Back in 2011, when my third son was around 9 months old I had a nervous breakdown.  I had twins who were two and a half and their younger brother.  I was under extreme stress of managing life and motherhood with the constant demands of three kids. I didn’t want to change my situation. I …
