Imperfect Me is...just My Perfect


As I tumble along in middle age I'm realising more that you make the best of your life. 

When younger your competitive streak is the front runner. But some blows knock you so back that you don't realise you are still holding on to them.

Fire Up Your Spirit


There are times in everyone's life when the crap can take over and weigh us down.

At some stage, you have to find the courage to fire up your spirit and live again.

Learn from the mistakes, hurt and wrongs done to your and learn to live according to your rules.

It's been a rough few years in the last while for me and it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If it was a bereavement, health worry or whatever. I no sooner got rid of one health worry then another one appeared to take its place.

Creating Healthier Habits to support you in achieving a healthier lifestyle

Though well intentioned, New Years Resolutions can be, a recipe for disaster.  Getting caught up in the hype and pomp of saying goodbye to the old, we tend to see the New Year as a chance to make a fresh start.  Hence, we tend to make such resolutions over ambitious.

When, in the weeks and months that follow, we slip back to our old ways, our self-esteem can take a plunge with it.

Tools to Help You with Goal Setting

By now you are either full steam ahead on your goals for 2016 or have failed miserably. Ok so the latter sounds a bit 'drama queen' territory but the shameful way we berate ourselves for getting stuck and lasting only 2 or 3 days or so with our goals you'd swear world peace depended on our success.
