Whisper

Last night I had dinner with a friend who told me about Steven Speilberg saying that your life purpose is often actually found through a whisper rather than a loud voice telling you where you should be going. That things are more gradual. I love that idea as where I am right now isn’ necessarily […]

Breaking Habits

I’m teaching a 6 week movement class at the moment and in preparation for each class am reading massive amounts on movement and all sorts. I was reading about how challenging it can be for a student to start moving in a different way than they are used to; especially when in my case, some […]

Taking responsibility

I am reading “Goals!” by Brian Tracy at the moment, and in one of his chapters he writes about the courage to take complete responsibility for one’s life. When I read those words I had a flashback to a day a few years back when this very fact dawned on me. I had been working in […]

Impossible

This week I read a book, ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ by David J Schwartz. He speaks of the difference between the successful and the not so successful people. It all boils down to one basic difference; the limiting belief of what’s possible for oneself. Haven’t we all been there, putting off things or playing […]

This month our theme is DO which is easier said than done. Sometimes the little words can trip one up the most I find. Not over thinking or qualifying something just being confident that it is the right thing and doing it. I am feeling my fear and doing it anyway this week as I […]

Mhairi’s Week Ten

Not sure if that’s from a place of insecurity or lack of trust in life that the road will come upto meet me. But the bottom […]

Mhairi’s Week Three

Sometimes I have used words such as brave and courageous without really knowing what they meant in a day-to-day scenario. It’s a good thing to think of the big picture, of Joan of arc and what she did but how does that translate for me now? I’ve often thought that should I be required to […]

Johanna’s Week Three

Last week’s sense of nirvana called for action. There was this one thing that kept coming back to me. Over and over again. I couldn’t dodge the bullet. “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” That is number one on Bronnie Ware’s […]
