Relief

Relief

I went for a bike ride this week. First time in a year. A 14 mile journey ( clearly not doing anything by halves). Well to say I was in agony at the end of it was an understatement. But do you know what. I felt alive. My body felt pumped. My body was relieved. […]

Result

Result

Why do you do it? Why do you want it? How will it make you feel when you get your desired result? How will you feel different? Are you doing it for the end result? Or are you doing it for the process? We’ve all had those moments where we get what we wanted, but […]

Reflection

Reflection

A few weeks ago I asked people what they wanted me to draw about next. One of the responses were “For what in your life do you feel most grateful?” Of course it got me thinking about things that I could be grateful for, despite the current circumstances. You see gratitude is ultimately as state […]

Restraint

Restraint

I was thinking about this a lot this week. At the moment we are restricted by what we can and can’t do. Where we can and can’t go. We are suddenly in a position where we seemingly have no control over things. Faced with the greatest imposition of our lifestyle to date. It got me […]

Are you a happy teacher?

Are you a happy teacher?

Are you a Happy Teacher? What type of teacher are you?   Do you relish in the unpredictability of your next class? Do you cower in fear of the repercussions of your last encounter? Do you bounce into class enjoying every moment that the students give you? I’ve been asking those questions recently.   I’d […]

It’s my Birthday…week

It’s my Birthday…week

So It’s been a week since my bday. This week been officially the start of my new year. So of course has got me thinking about things that I’ve learned over the course of the years I’ve been blessed to be here on Earth. The ultimate lesson is that the world really is my classroom. […]

Perspective 2019

Perspective 2019

Perspective- one of my words of the year. The hanged man.- this was one of the cards I picked out for me in  2019.  It was a match made in heaven!   I chose the word after  I had one of those Subconscious override momentary blackout (SOMB) while I was driving.   You know the ones where you […]
