There will never be a perfect moment so just get started

Have you ever put off something you know you need to do and tried justifying it by telling yourself there will soon be a better time to start? Some examples which may strike a chord are: I’ll mow the lawn tomorrow if we have another dry day – it might still be a bit damp …

Cherish every minute, especially if you have kids…

Earlier this year, I wrote about time moving too fast ( you can find that post here ) and that was really emphasised to me earlier this week. A Facebook reminder popped up from 4 years ago, showing pictures of my daughter and I goofing about on a shopping trip. She was trying on shades …

I’ve lost a bit of my enthusiasm for the blog over recent weeks…

Since my very first YYCDI blog post, I’ve strived to make each and every post searingly honest. Today’s is no exception… For a few weeks now, I just haven’t been feeling the enthusiasm and passion I usually have for the blog.

Time cannot possibly go by any quicker the older we get …

Life is all about balance and keeping the plates spinning

I’ve come to realise lately, during those rare but important brief spells of actually taking a few minutes to think things over, that life is all about balance; about keeping all the plates spinning at the same time without letting any fall off the pole and smash into pieces. And the key thing I’ve concluded …

We are seeing the inherent good in people and long may it continue

I thought my issues with low self-esteem would be ok during the current lockdown. Surely not having to go out as much, and therefore not being anxious about what other people think of me to anywhere near the same extent as normal, would improve things? Sadly, that hasn’t necessarily been the case as I haven’t …
