This is a post about gratitude... for all the sh*tty things that have happened in my life :)
I’m expecting a baby soon, and am learning that you get a LOT of advice when you’re pregnant.
Don’t get me wrong… most of it is helpful, and all of it is well-meaning.
But people have very specific thoughts and beliefs around babies.
Yesterday I woke up at 4:14 am.
My mind was racing.
I’ve had a lot on recently, and as a result, have gotten behind on a lot.
I had a "life-defining" moment when I was 21.
I was living in Russia at the time, and my then boyfriend and a friend had come to visit.
We started talking about goals and life ambitions.
I was out walking the other day and saw a beautiful swan on a lake.
And it got me thinking...
Isn't it funny how we appreciate swans for their beauty... but we don't do the same with ourselves!
One of my friends works at a company going through major layoffs.
They're offering voluntary redundancies to almost half their workforce.
It’s a pretty big deal; there’s a big payout for people who are eligible and want to leave.
A moment of truth...
Sometimes you’ll spend ages creating a cool, personalized free bonus for a client…
…and you won’t get a response back from them.
Keep going anyway.
I had a query from a reader recently who brought up a really interesting point.
I won’t go into details but, in short, she was struggling between two decisions: whether to do what her family wanted her to, or whether to follow her heart.
Last week I had a moment of doubt about my newsletters:
Perhaps they should be more impressive…
Have more 'bells and whistles'!
I was lying in bed the other night after a fairly tough day, and in a moment of calmness, I thought to myself:
“Well done me for getting through today.
Well done me for surviving!”
