11:11 Make a Wish

Have you ever made a wish when the time hits 11:11?  Or perhaps wishes on the seeds of a dandelion clock or a loose eyelash? We all get into these little habits stemming from stories and old wives tales that we have learned over the years.  I was a sucker for them and would make a wish every time I lost an eyelash or the spotted the time was 11:11 (even doing it more often if the clocks in the

Missed Dreams and Hidden Wishes

Missed Dreams and Hidden Wishes

If, like me, you are constantly coming up with fantastic ideas, dreams and (not quite solid) plans for the things you would like to see and achieve in your life, then you might know about missed dreams and hidden wishes.

Reflecting on your Journey

Reflecting on your Journey

How far have you come this week? What have you achieved? How far have you travelled? You will have had a busy week, whatever you have been up to and it is always useful to reflect on the journey and to take some time to see where you have come from and the distance you have travelled in such a short space of time.  You will be amazed at how much you can do and how far you have come,

STOP! You’re running yourself into the ground! Do some work on you for a change!

STOP! You’re running yourself into the ground! Do some work on you for a change!

Stop! You’re running yourself into the ground! Many of you will be outward focused (like me!) meaning that you spend a lot of your time and energy looking after, caring for and loving others.  It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give but what happens when your internal supplies start to dwindle and you become tired and suddenly realise that you have let yourself go? This is where you have to step out of life for a moment

Can guilt get in the way of you doing things for yourself because you have been putting others first for so long? If you have nodded or agreed to any of the above, you are not alone.  There are so many of

The Truth About Confidence (That You Probably Already Knew)

The Truth About Confidence (That You Probably Already Knew)

    Most of us will be able to remember a time when we needed a bit more confidence or even a trace of confidence!  There are times when we feel absolutely great, in our stride and others where we feel flimsy and lacking in the boost of self-belief that can move us forward in the direction we want to be going. Here’s the thing.  Even the most confident of people aren’t as confident as you think they are!  Confidence

Welcome to Should Land

Welcome to Should Land

Welcome to Should Land. You should have lots of fun here because you should enjoy the rides, like the people here and get on with what you are doing because everyone else does. The whole problem with should has come up very regularly with my clients lately.  They have been doing things because they have a feeling that they should – because someone has told them they should or they feel like they should because of ‘such and such’ reason or
