Monday Mojo – Treasure Your Energy

How is your energy? At the start of each week, and especially at the commencement of a new year, there’s a pressure to begin with a full tank of positive mojo. We straighten our tiaras.  We create the to do list.  We aspire to get more done, even if it means we tap into our energy reserves.  The thing is, we don’t have …

New Year Mojo – Clear the Path

How do you feel about 2019? It’s about now the pressure really starts to mount to make new year’s resolutions, and set goals with good intentions. To try that new diet. To get more exercise.

Monday Mojo – Boast a Little

When was the last time you blew your own trumpet? Spoke of your achievements. Fluffed your own feathers. Raised a glass to yourself. Feels weird doesn’t it? Maybe even awkward and uncomfortable.

Monday Mojo – Assemble Your Squad

Monday Mojo – Shake It Off

How do you cope when someone says something unkind? It might be directly to you, or about someone or something that matters to you.  It can leave us feeling edgy. Uncomfortable. Even sad. When I was in my third pregnancy, and I found the courage to tell someone close to me how anxious I was, they told me I …
