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...

One for Sorrow, Two for Joy

I'm sitting here waiting for the next client to arrive as I write this. The view from my window is amazing - I am blessed. I love being able to look out into the garden to see and hear nature; especially the birds that visit my bird tables (and from my window, I can't...

Big Fat Lies

Photo: Obvious Big Fat Lie! We all have conversations with ourselves in our head and depending on how we're wired, some of us do it more than others. I talk to myself a lot! When I'm working alone and need to concentrate, I can't even listen to music with lyrics...
