Monday Mojo – Avoid the Normal

Do you sometimes feel like you hold a piece of yourself back? From friends. From colleagues. From the rest of the world. When we meet someone new, it seems normal to censor what we say, to keep just a piece of ourselves hidden, so that we don’t give too much away. Not because we’re hiding anything, but because …

Monday Mojo – Start a Conversation

How are you?  And by that, I mean how are you really? It’s a crucially important question, and one I deeply believe in. Because, you see, when people just ask us how we are, we usually say “I’m fine”. But we’re not always fine are we? And sometimes, we feel like we’re burdening people, if we say what’s on our minds. …

Monday Mojo – Honour Your Time

What’s taking up your time lately? It’s one of our most precious commodities, time. You can invest it, but you can’t own it. We can spend it, but we can’t get a refund. We can waste it, but we can’t stop it. We move through every day trying to make the most of it, and …

Monday Mojo – Ride the Waves

Have you noticed how, sometimes, change comes out of nowhere? You’ll be doing your own thing, minding your own business and, wallop! Someone or something blindsides you, and suddenly everything is different. Sometimes forever.

Monday Mojo – Find the Quiet

They talk on their ‘phones and clatter the keyboards on their laptops. And to drown out the house, people plug into their headphones, ironically …

Monday Mojo – Treat Yourself

Have you been looking after yourself lately? At this month’s Serenity, we noticed how selfish we feel when we give something to ourselves, whether it’s a warm bath, buying ourselves a treat, or just spending quality time on our own. We always feel like we should be doing something else: Seeing to other people. Checking …

Monday Mojo – Lean In

What do you when things get a bit tricky? When people are unkind. When stuff doesn’t go your way. When you’ve just about had enough. I talked in last week’s Mojo, about assembling your squad; knowing who’s in your corner when you need them most. Sometimes though we find ways to cope in a way …

Monday Mojo – Assemble Your Squad

Monday Mojo™ – feel good motivation for the week ahead: Assemble Your Squad How many people do you feel you can count on these days? As we get older the number seems to get smaller. But is that because it’s getting harder to really know people? I asked a question on my Facebook page last …

Monday Mojo – Take It On

What do you do when you’re faced with making a tough decision? Decisions and problems present themselves in many ways. Just when we think we’ve got all our ducks in a row, something seems to come along to upset the applecart.We each have our own ways of dealing with it. We might bury our heads …

Monday Mojo – Write the List

Do you have a bucket list? There’s been a lot of interest in these lately: writing a list of things we want to do before a certain age. If you could do anything, what would it be? And, more importantly, what’s stopping you? So often, we tell ourselves it’s because we don’t have enough time …
