Monday Mojo – Define Your Limits

How do you know when you’ve had enough? Some people have some early warning signs. They might: • feel grumpier than usual • feel like hiding • sigh. A lot.  In the Shambhala teachings, this is sometimes referred to as “meeting your edge”. It’s that moment when you realise you’re reaching your limit, and that what …

Monday Mojo – Plan the Party

When was the last time you celebrated something? I don’t mean a birthday necessarily, or an event like a promotion. I’m talking about the small wins: Making it to 5pm.  Not losing your temper with someone who is really testing your patience.  Finding your way through one of life’s curve balls. Every time someone attends one of …

Monday Mojo – Dance With Life

Do you ever feel like the world is turning, but in the wrong direction? Over twenty years ago, in 1996, Susan Jeffers (author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway) wrote a book entitled End The Struggle and Dance with Life. The first line of this book is literally “We live in a difficult world”. Before …

Monday Mojo – Live Life Simply

Have things felt a bit complicated lately? There’s so much happening in the world at the moment, it would be easy to get swept up in the chaos of it all. When there’s a lot happening around you, you might feel like there’s a need to plough on and keep up.  To make urgent decisions. …

Monday Mojo – Know Your People

How many people do you trust? As we get older, it’s often said that your circle gets smaller. You start to realise who you can count on. Who “gets” you. Who you would turn to when things go a bit pear-shaped.  But as we age, it’s also harder to make friends. At school we’d maybe just …

Monday Mojo – Tap into Wisdom

How’s your intuition these days? Your spidey-sense.  Your inner wisdom.  Your gut.. ..and what’s it telling you? We are built to be “in tune” with our environment. Our body was designed to know when it’s time to go to sleep (before technology did its best to put a stop to that). It’s how we can …

Monday Mojo – Set the Tone

Do you ever feel like people just don’t listen? Like you’re talking to a brick wall. That what you say falls on ‘deaf ears’. As if you’re talking another language.  When we feel misunderstood it’s easy to raise our voice in anger. To shout out, have a knee-jerk reaction and say something we didn’t actually …

Monday Mojo – Bring in Mercy

What do you think about forgiveness? I think the modern definition is somewhat over-rated, and I much prefer its original meaning.  Let me explain. Today, people often associate forgiveness with letting people off the hook. Accepting their excuses. Pretending the hurt didn’t happen.  People might say you “just need to forgive” like it’s as easy …

Monday Mojo – Start Where You Are

Do you ever feel like you can’t keep up? Like it’s all just moving a bit too fast.  That other people are strides in front.  That somehow you’ve fallen behind. Or fallen short.  I often liken the pace of life to that of a treadmill. Before we know it we’re hurtling along, striving for perfection, …

Monday Mojo – Catch Your Breath

When was the last time you stopped? I don’t mean at a traffic light, or to go to bed. I mean genuinely just downed tools and took a moment to take it all in.  When we lead busy lives the emphasis is always on doing not being. It’s one of the reasons I describe in …
