SCENARIO #5 - HOLIDAYS

As I sit here waiting in the queue to board a Ferry, as we head to Ireland for the weekend to celebrate my grandparents 70th Wedding Anniversary, it reminded me of this post that I originally shared with a private Facebook group in June 2018...

Tool #26 ME (That’s YOU)

Tool #26 ME (That’s YOU) A few weeks ago when I was telling a friend that I was not renewing my IT contract, taking time out from Reiki & Coaching and spending the summer at the caravan and, most importantly, making the children priority, her eyes rolled back and she said ”Why are you so lucky?!”. Once again someone attempting/making someone else feel guilty for being able to do something they wish they could do. This isn’t personal. I know that. I witness it happening all of the time. I am lucky. I feel lucky. Yet this is not all down to luck. I am also a very hard worker, personally, professionally and emotionally. I have been for at least...
