Pause to ask – How many days are left?

So how many hours and days are left? In this week, this month, this year, this Life? We can pick a number but we really don't know.... And that's sort of scary so we pretend and don't go there - pretending that we have all the time in the world, forever and ever...

Words of wisdom from the naive

A little bird told me and so I thought I'd pass it on: If you're anxious - that thing you're fretting about, is probably not that serious... Yet, ordinary, little things can be beautiful and important so pay attention to them.   Good decisions are rarely made in...

Noticing the signs

The signs are everywhere really and despite that we don't see them. Or maybe we ignore them because we don't like what they say. We don't want to hear that we should stop or even pause because at times, it seems impossible to do so. We don't want to see the costs even...

The things we mean to say (but often don’t)

  I love you. You're important in my life. I'm proud of you. Thank you. I miss you. I'm sorry. Can I help in some way? I appreciate what you did. I attended a funeral a few months ago and as I didn't know the deceased very well, I was able to be there in very...

Questions to be asked

I'm fascinated with how people behave, learn, accomplish, fail, succeed - basically how we, as humans, are in the world. Even as a child, I loved noticing things: about people, the world and nature. It didn't always make sense to me and there wasn't really anyone I...

Self Care for Slow Learners – Never Give Up

I'm a slow learner. It takes a while for me to 'get' that I can't circumvent the laws of nature! Knowing this in theory doesn't stop me pushing very hard to try! But I don't think I'm alone in this. I understand (on a theoretical level at least), that my body is not...

Feel the Fear Series – My first big road trip

Those of you who know me or who read my musings may remember that in the last year or so, I decided to Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and join my husband on the back of his motorbike. It was a big deal for me - I was very afraid at the start but I've been having more...

Making stuff (up)

I attended a workshop a few months ago where we spent quite a lot of time making stuff and being creative. We also heard about how we sometimes (often) make stuff UP about ourselves and about life in general too. For example: "I'm not creative," " I'm very unlucky,"...

Labels and Leaving Certs

I found my Leaving Cert results the other day and they took my breath away!   I'd remembered they were pretty poor and even to this day, when they don't matter anymore, there's still a slight shame in remembering how I was told to say "I was very happy with how I...
