    Time for a Change…..

    When we talk about change, it can raise all sorts of emotions depending on your current situation, any challenges you currently face and the consequences that you believe may follow a change. For me, it has been the fear of failure, worry that past periods of sadness will follow me, but most of all the question of whether the change will actually make me happy! I remember saying to my mum not so long ago that sometimes the best decision was not to make a decision, but since then I’ve realised my thought process was flawed as I wasn’t asking myself the right questions! I know this sounds all very cryptic, but through…

  • Group Travel……not just for 18-30’s or the over 60’s!

    A mixture of excitement, curiosity and possibly some nerves hovered around me in the days running up to my recent holiday. A holiday which differed to any I’d ever been on, booking it was venturing into the unknown, but I hoped it would be full of adventure and new experiences, as well as sharing those memories with an easy going group.

    Sliding doors?!

    Sometimes I do think life can be strange, especially if you stop to think about those ‘sliding doors’ moments, which may have taken your life in such a different direction. Does anyone else wonder how much of life is fate and how much of it is based upon a series of decisions, or in some cases the inability to make decisions!? My choice to egg freeze last year and the subsequent decision to start writing this blog has in itself provided many opportunities and given me a new perspective and experiences that otherwise I wouldn’t have had. For example, who would have thought I would have been the main case…
