I am an empty nester, peri-menopausal and a woman in business myself, if you’re like me, then I know many of the challenges we face. The day this picture was taken, I was hosting a workshop in Mayfair, London as my daughter Anna was flying to India to work at a permaculture farm in the foothills of the Himalayas. We love our grown children who we’ve brought the up to be independent and resilient and then the time comes to give them the space to fly (metaphorically or not!). As loving mama’s it’s only natural to have bitter sweet emotions, even to feel lost. ⠀⠀ I’m passionate about helping women to embrace this time in their lives and for them to fly (metaphorically or literally) once again! If you’d like to have a chat with me to see how I maybe able to help you – connect with me through my website.
Made my first ever Christmas cake yesterday afternoon! It took 4 and a half hours to bake and our home smelt divine – a really nostalgic fragrance that reminds me of childhood Christmas preparations. There’s something very therapeutic about creating something from scratch – I just hope it tastes good! 😂 Marzipan and icing closer to the big day. Are you making a cake this year?
Love this Maya Angelo quote! If you feel that you’ve become stuck in a rut, or living your life half empty – go where you’ll feel inspired, connect with people who naturally raise you up or read books that have you aha-zing like crazy! Maybe a walk in nature, where you live will do it for you? There are always so many incredible breath taking things to witness in or along our parks, rivers, seasides, country lanes or back gardens. I’ve been fortunate to visit Rome a few times. Now that’s definitely one of those places where my breath was taken away. So much ancient history right around every corner. Simply beautiful and for an amateur history geek like me, it’s always jaw dropping and breath taking! – What does it for you? Go, fill yourself up! You’ll have so much more to give when your own tank is full 🤩 and you’ll feel renewed and more purposeful every time! ⠀⠀ Happy Sunday ❤️ Make it happen.
One of the reasons I’m so passionate about hosting intimate group meet ups, is that I believe in this age of social media, we’re all starved and longing for deeper connection. If you are a woman in business, working from home, it can feel a very lonely and isolating experience. It’s easy for insecure thinking to shrink you small. Meeting up with like hearted women – a sisterhood, who see you as the greatest version of yourself not only raises you up, it creates space for your own wisdom to come through, and you become unstoppable as your vision for what is possible expands! I’m excited to be hosting new intimate events in 2019 and a transformational retreat! Watch this space! Sound good to you?
I remember sharing my business ideas with a male family member right back at the beginning, when he enquired what I was up to. He belittled my plan to work with women, mocked my calling and laughed. I cannot image him doing this if I was my brother. You can feel deeply wounded when someone you love doesn’t see the value in the work you are called to perform. If you’ve experienced this I’m sorry. Remember that they are not your clients, protect your business ideas and believe in yourself. I’ve gone on to serve women in the UK and around the world with my coaching and VIP programs, online programmes, retreats and monthly meet ups. Be part of the solution ❤️ We will slowly and surely together, end the thousands of years of patriarchy.
