A little bit of weight loss inspiration goes a long way

Losing weight isn’t easy. In fact, it’s bloody difficult. Those of you who have always been slim may scoff at this. Those of you who are currently carrying a stone or three too much will no doubt fully understand. I’ve written about this previously so I’m not going to regurgitate the same old ‘woe is …

An open letter to any kids who play a music instrument. Reach for the sky and don’t doubt yourself.  

I try not to live a life filled with regrets. It’s wasted time. The past is done and can’t be changed – it’s much better to live in the present and look to the future. However, if I do have one huge regret, it’s not seriously pursuing music when I was younger. I started playing …

Does anyone else have a really poor attention span or is it just me? I’m blaming technology again…

I have a real problem with paying attention to a single task for any moderate length of time (let’s say 15 minutes or more). This hasn’t been an issue all my life, as far as I recall, though it certainly is now, and I place the blame firmly at the feet of modern technology… There …

The Power of 10 and why it could be a real game changer for you

I was off work last week and spent much of that time decorating. I didn’t cross much else off my to-do list which, as per, is hugely frustrating for me. Yet another instance of grand plans which ultimately fell by the wayside. One thing I did manage to do though, other than touching up paintwork …

I’m experiencing writer’s block for the first time

For the first time since starting this blog in 2019, I’m experiencing writer’s block. I wrote earlier this year about having lost a bit of my enthusiasm for the blog ( you can find that post here ) though this feels different. It’s not that I’m falling out of love with the blog – it’s …

Me? A procrastinator? I’ll prove you wrong someday. Just you wait and see.

As referred to in last week’s blog, a post on good old procrastination. My number 1 enemy. When thinking about what I need to include in this post, I looked up some definitions of the word and found the following: Cambridge Dictionary: To keep delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant …

Advice for my 13-year-old self…

The son of a close friend has recently progressed from playing the ukulele to his first electric guitar, shortly after his 13th birthday. Hearing of how much he’s loving it, and seeing videos of his impressive playing, are heart-warming and take me back to when I first started playing guitar, at the exact same age. …

Post number 100! Creating momentum.

So, here we are. In what seems like the blink of an eye, this is post number 100 for Yes, You Can Do It. 100 posts since I took that nervous first step back on the 5th May 2019. 100 posts where I have, at times, bared my soul for all to see. If you’d …
