An easy way to make a decision.

Am I the only one who finds making decisions really hard? I get stressed, overwhelmed. And really, really irritable. Mostly with myself. Once I've decided to do something, I'm gung-ho, but getting to that point is hard going. I worry, [...]

I tried not to kill them.

I went running with my kid the other day. I have a running buggy and he comes with me on shorter runs. He likes to shout instructions at me that I obviously cannot understand because he is only one and [...]

About what happened in Orlando.

I've kept quiet about what happened in Orlando. I've switched my laptop on so many times to write something, and yet I couldn't find the words to say what I wanted to say. I now know what I want to [...]

A drowned human head and a lesson in control.

"I'm facing my fear!" is what I shouted mid-length to my sister and niece, as they looked down at me from the pedalo they were using to follow me around the lake I was swimming in. "Yeah you are!" They replied back. Only [...]

Have you got the GUTS?

5 months from now, I'll swim just over 5 miles, from one end of a lake to the other. Right now, I find it incredibly hard to even swim half of that distance. Oh, and I haven't actually swum in anything [...]

I don’t really like the word ‘Coach’, it brings to mind some shouty, in-your-face, whistle blowing wanker, and that’s pretty much the opposite of what I do.

10 life hacks everyone should know. And also: You cannot hack your life.

I was just listening to a bit of Tina Turner on YouTube, when I noticed an advertisement for another video in the right-hand feed. It said: "10 Hacks Every Woman Should Know. Airy Vagina. Boob Pump. Power Posing." What the actual fuck? [...]

The Eminem version of being grateful.

Every night, before I go to bed, I take out a tattered, red notebook and write down three things I am grateful for in my life. Side note: I don't really like the word 'grateful'. It's so over-used right now [...]

How to do stuff that scares the shit out of you.

You might not know this about me, but I HATE driving on the motorway. It scares the absolute shit out of me. One time, while driving to a wedding, via country roads (because fuck driving on a motorway), my partner—who [...]

Give yourself permission to be shit.

The first time I hosted a workshop, only two people showed up. One of those people was my neighbour who I had bribed to come incase no-one rocked up but a solo axe-murderer type. It's a good job she agreed to come along, [...]
