Day 2430 - How a student assignment helped me refocus my business

Thanks Jess! 

As you know I've been flailing of late.  Surviving not thriving.  Which is so unlike me.  I've always had such good focus, especially when it comes to projects and my business.

Poor Cheer Chick Charlie has been suffering over the last 12-18 months, cast to the side as we focused on more important things.  Real things that suck away our creativity.

I've done a lot of naval gazing when it comes to the Charlie brand, and when my distributor went into liquidation and my dream of international domination went with it, I started to second guess my goals.

Day 3423 - Becoming part of history

I was there the day that ...

Celebrating a friend's birthday at the Chipping Norton Stakes Day
I was at the Royal Randwick racecourse the day Winx broke the world record for Group One wins last weekend.  It was her 23rd Group One triumph and her 31st consecutive win.  Such a magnificent lady and so incredible to be in her presence. 

Now whether you like horse racing or not, there is no denying that this is a historical event of Phar Lap proportions.

Day 3417 - Being Around

Today I rejoice in just being "available"

I'm not getting a lot done these days.  Other than the routine mundane menial things we've all got to do to manage a house and family.

That was starting to stress me.  My inability to find any mojo to move forward with my key projects like my writing, the magazine, my books and my consultancy.  The businesses I've worked so hard on creating over the past few years just sitting there wasting away.

But then I sat back and realised, there's a lot to be said for just being around for my husband and kids.

Day 3410 - The World Travel Expo

Where in the world would you go?

Last year my BIL and SIL took their family on an around the world trip stopping in Honkers, England and the USA.  They were always going to go to England for a holiday to see family, but after a visit to the World Travel Expo they found that the 'round the world ticket was actually cheaper than the standard UK fare and they got to visit new and exciting places along the way.

Day 3403 - Finding it hard to get back in the swing of things

And so it all starts again.

Running away to the coast over the Christmas holidays meant we could escape reality without as many daily triggers of our new normal.

Of course now that school is back, the soccer season is about to commence, the hubster is back at work and my projects are all waiting for some attention, the new normal can't be ignored.

Day 3396 - Self-Care and the art of breathing

Take a deep breath ...

Due to the loss of our beautiful Chelsea, I've been finding it difficult to move forward with many areas of my life.  The sadness can be overwhelming and the new normal difficult to come to terms with.  But we must all continue to breathe.

Day 3389 - The NSW South Coast

Today I give you beach views

Here is a snippet of the world as seen through my eyes these past two weeks.  As I dream of the exotic locations I may visit this year, I realise that my regular beach side travels are quite "exotic" to some.

Day 3382 - Finding Inspiration in Books

What's on your summer reading list?

Inspiration is everywhere and books are a great way to get inspired.  Whether they be of the motivational genre, autobiographical or some good ol' fashioned fiction, it's amazing what a good read can do for the mindset.

Day 3375 - Seven Fun Activities to Help You Find Your Inner Youth

Need an Adrenaline Injection?

As part of my downward slide to FIFTY I've decided to grab the Y by the tail and find my inner Youth.

Something I've always enjoyed is adrenaline style activities. I'm the first one to coax the kids on the most extreme rides at the theme parks.  They make me feel free, alive and youthful. 

Here are 7 fun activities that I think could help us all find our inner youth (without resorting to jumping out of planes or hanging by your ankles over a bridge).

Day 3372 - Who wants to add to my 50 before 50 list?

This is not a bucket list! 

This is definitely not a bucket list.  It's more of a "fuckit list" as I spend the next 18 months celebrating the downward slide to, then the fabulous year that is, 50.

I'd love for you to give me some ideas on things to do before my fabulous fifty turns into a 51 (which is a 50 with an annoying dangle hanging off it).

I need fifty things people!
