If today were my last….

What defines me? What do I align myself with? What causes my spirit to leap with joy? Do I allow my circumstances to define me? We all have choice, we all have free-will. We are given numerous opportunities to decide to do one thing or another daily. I can choose to sit and stare off [...]

A sense of urgency….

Sometimes we need a sense of urgency to get things done. I find I can easily spend my days wandering from one task to the next and it’s not until it’s almost school pick up time that I realise I have half done quite a few things but not actually finished much. I need a [...]

How to stay focused and achieve your goals…

A little bit over a week into the New Year and I have lost my flow. I started this year with a bang, I had all my goals mapped out and broken down into weekly tasks. Yet this week I feel like I have fallen completely apart. I have lost all of my flow. All [...]

Spirit of Excellence..

What is a spirit of excellence? How do we define it? Is my definition of a 'spirit of excellence' going to be the same as yours? We are all wired differently. We do, see and feel things differently. We are not created to be the same or to think the same. This is a good [...]

But stay with me on this one... I believe that sometimes God allows us to fail at something temporarily to save us from failing permanently. This [...]

The next best thing….

The next best thing to winning the lotto...Is hard work, determination and perseverance!  I know it sounds completely silly and almost crazy to compare winning the lotto with hard work, determination and perseverance.
