When nothing is certain, everything is possible

2022-06-02T16:41:41+02:00June 2nd, 2022|

Nothing is ever certain, is it? Things can change in the blink of an eye. ✨Kids get shot in school. ✨People get a diagnosis they didn't expect. ✨Plans don't work out. ✨Love is ended. ✨Projects fail. But also: ✨The project is a success and suddenly you're projected into something huge. ✨ You find the love of your life when you had given up hope. ✨ What happened after the failed plans is even better than the plan! The only constant is change. And the more we worry about it, struggle against it or [...]

The power of choosing a Word of the Year!

2022-05-02T14:38:20+02:00January 5th, 2022|

I was never good with New Year’s Resolutions. First, it was something you HAD to do. Because people would ask you ‘So, what’s your resolution for the new year?’. And if you didn’t have one, they’d look at you funny. Second, because I found that they only lasted for so long. Like those many people you see in the gym in January and who disappear come February. A resolution is like an action item on your To Do list. You can easily procrastinate. You can delegate. You can blame it on the weather or [...]

100 things I love

2022-04-30T19:24:33+02:00July 30th, 2021|

A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don’t allow the happy moment, because they’re so busy trying to get a happy life. – Abraham Hicks We all have busy lives. Job, kids, partner, friends, parents. We try to juggle it all, fit it all into one day. And we manage. And we are happy. Sort of. We are chasing success, perfection, happiness. Because that is what is expected of us. Right? This chase can very quickly become an obsession. We need to be better, faster, more perfe [...]

How to talk about ‘uncomfortable’ subjects

2022-04-30T19:25:39+02:00July 16th, 2021|

We've all been there. We want or need to broach a 'delicate' or 'uncomfortable' subject with someone: with our partner about sex with a good friend about returning money to us with our boss about a raise ... and we chicken out, we postpone, procrastinate, pretend everything is fine and we don't need to talk about it, let the subject go around and around in our heads until it hurts. We're afraid of messing it up, of 'bringing' the subject in the wrong way, of getting emotional, of looking stupid [...]

50 daily habits to make your life more creative

2022-04-30T19:27:44+02:00July 9th, 2021|

The web and blog world is full of 365 projects where people decide that for a year they will do something every day: take a photo of themselves, paint a picture, donate to charity etc. Here are a few simple ideas for little habits you can do every day for a year to make you a bit more creative: Let someone else draw a stripe or doodle on a piece of paper and then make a drawing from that. Look up what happened on that same day in the year you were born. Take a picture of a cloud. Take a picture [...]

Your Circle of Self- Care

2022-04-30T19:33:22+02:00July 2nd, 2021|

Remember that I introduced you to the Life Wheel a while back? It's a worksheet that helps you identify where you stand in all areas of life and where you might need some work. If not, you can download it here. Today I want to introduce you to a different kind of wheel: the Circle of Self-Care. Your circle of self-care is basically the foundation of your life. The different elements all contribute to your happiness, balance and overall wellbeing. There are different slices to the Self-care pie: [...]

Miranda’s favorite things – June 2021

2022-04-30T19:30:59+02:00June 25th, 2021|

Remember my recent favorite podcasts post? Today's another collection of my recent favorites, but a more generic one. Enjoy How we love There is the book, and initially it was written for couples to improve their marriage and partnership. However, how we love is so much broader than just with our significant other. Each person’s childhood experiences form the roots of who they are; continuing to inform the way that person responds to others or expresses love, even far into adulthood. The r [...]

Revisiting your word of the year

2022-04-30T19:37:43+02:00June 18th, 2021|

As many of you know, I choose a Word of the Year each year. It accompanies me throughout the year and has served me much much better than any resolution I have set in the past. Recently I have been feeling quite aligned with myself and I stumbled across an article of my first life coach on revisiting your word of the year. It is good practice to revisit your word of the year at the mid point of the year – so we're just in time for summer solstice happening this weekend… My word for 2021 was SOF [...]

Weird? Or just non-linear?

2022-04-30T19:40:07+02:00June 11th, 2021|

I used to work in marketing for a bedding company and our challenge was to invent a new bed. That's like reinventing the wheel you might say. Well, it kind of was. In order to get some creative help, we went and found Hans Zaugg who used to run a design school in Switzerland. Zaugg has been involved in products and brands such as Swatch, Artemide, Ikea... When I first met this guy, my job was to translate, as he only spoke German (well, Schwitzerdeutsch - Swiss German actually). In the beginnin [...]

Does Social Media make you scream?

2022-04-30T19:41:25+02:00June 4th, 2021|

The other day, a client was saying that she feels like a failure every time she logs onto social media and sees yet another person posting some amazing thing they have done or achieved.  She went on to say that each time she sees someone posting photos of their workouts they have been doing this past year, the dishes they have created or the craft or language they have learned 'thanks to the pandemic', she wants to scream. I was surprised. And a little taken aback. Because I post quite a bit on [...]
