… for the bullied and beautiful

… for the bullied and beautiful 0

I think we can all relate to this on some level. For the bullied and the beautiful, we all went through our phases and somehow managed to survived childhood. Looking back now, if we had the chance, we may have done somethings a little differently – For me, maybe that would have been starting a(…)

‘The Art of Asking’

‘The Art of Asking’ 0

Food for thought to promote some Monday inspiration. ‘Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan. Alt-rock icon Amanda Fucking(…)

Just when you think it can’t get any worse!

Just when you think it can’t get any worse! 0

I am no man hater, but between my friends and I, we have an encyclopedia’s worth of bad experiences that could probably fill the British Library. Without listing them all, I accept that it’s part of growing up and from each experience you can learn a positive lesson from it. A few weeks ago I(…)

Moments of Clarity

Moments of Clarity 1

Have you ever had a moment of complete, unexpected clarity?  A moment that catches you entirely off guard. It is as if suddenly everything makes sense, even when nothing really makes sense at all. When for one shining moment – it all fits together and you know that everything is how it is supposed to(…)

‘One second every day’

‘One second every day’ 2

Watching TED talks has become a part of my Saturday morning ritual. The old, the new… the inspirational! I lay in bed not wanting to get out of it, maybe because I am still in winter hibernation mode (can’t wait for the sun to come out and get my ass back running in the park again!) and(…)

I was recently introduced to the British band ‘Passenger’. My friend sent me a link because he thought I would appreciate a certain song that he saw performed at their latest London show. I was blown away. It is one of those songs, one of those voices, that just instantly moves you – ‘Let Her Go’. As(…)

Speedboat rescue!

Speedboat rescue! 1

One hot summer’s day in my early twenties, my friend, her boyfriend and I were walking along the Embankment in London. Dying for a drink, and not being near a pub, we came across a boat docked on the Thames advertising an all day open bar – BONUS. Checking it was not a private party, and(…)
