Day 2541 - How writers can help readers to feel less alone

Behind every challenge is an opportunity to help others.

A few months ago I met with a client who has MS.  She had struggled with her diagnosis but was positive about moving forward to feel less defined by her disease.

As she faces a long road through therapy towards a new normal, I suggested she start a blog about the journey to help her heal.  Being able to share our challenges not only allows us to "get it out" and make sense of it, but it means we also have the ability to help others feel less alone if they've found themselves down a similar road.

Day 2540 - A photo that reminds us to focus ...

Today I'm keeping it simple.

This photo is a reminder to focus.  To focus on what's right in front of us. Focus on the detail, be mindful in each moment, appreciate the little things and and let the rest blur until we take the next step.

Happy Wednesday!

Day 2538 - How to create a yellow themed birthday party

Yellow is this season's it colour.

According to fashion industry "insiders" yellow is a big colour this season.  It's also the colour of sunshine and spring.  Which are all the reasons I chose to have a yellow themed birthday party for the model daughter.

Day 2537 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The P Plate Edition

Happy birthday to my baby! 

This photo "borrowed" from her Instagram
Although I may have edited it a little.
You've got to love Picmonkey for turning a plain old dinner outing into a party
This week we celebrate my first born's 17th birthday and all that comes with that.  Including of course now getting her P's.

Day 2536 - When is the perfect time to start a project?

There is no PERFECT time.

At least once a week I get asked how I do all that I do.  At least once a week I get asked for advice on when to start a certain project or goal.  My answers are always the same:

  1.  I just do it and 
  2. The best time is NOW!

Day 2535 - Skin Cancer News

The good news is that our skin cancer diagnoses are decreasing.

According to Google yesterday was officially the first day of spring.  1 September seems like a lovely easy-to-remember start to the season (you've got to admit we're big into the KISS method of operation) but the reality is that the true seasonal start to spring is actually around 21 or 22 September.

With spring now officially declared it's time for us to start thinking about our skin health.  In particular protecting ourselves against the sun and that bloody big hole in the ozone layer.

Day 2534 - A quick catch up

So where are we at in life?

Taxi Mum

I've been so distracted with all this damn rain (and resulting body pain) and so busy hanging out with my fans on social media that the blog has taken a bit of a back seat. You probably noticed I've been boringly repetitive of late.

To apologise for my neglect, I give you a Deep Fried update.

Day 2533 - Cheer Chick Charlie Instagram

You get what you focus on.

It used to be that the Cheer Chick Charlie Instagram account would lay a bit dormant.  I'd be lucky to post a photo to that account twice a week.

The reality was I just didn't know how to sell it.  I didn't know who my audience was or whether I even really had an audience.  I didn't quite know how to use Instagram for engagement.

Then magic happened and the penny finally dropped.

I shifted my focus and as we all know - you usually get what you focus on.
