The main driver behind my decision was that I wanted to be around for my 92-year-old mum, who lived with us and also look after our granddaughter 2 days a week when her mum returned to work. So, April 2015 began a new season, as I reflect it was quite a challenge caring for a 92-year-old and a 9-month-old.

About 5 years ago, I was in a career rut and was questioning everything about what I was doing. I had been a Primary School teacher for nearly 20 years, had taken a break to raise my daughter and was really struggling to get back in to it because everything had moved on apace. But I didn’t think there was anything else I could do. Eventually I contacted a Life Coach, called David Jessop.

Or is it more often the case that you reply with “I’m ok”, “I’m getting there”, or “Not bad”? If we’re being honest with ourselves, many of us tend towards the latter. Why? Because we’re settling for lives that are less happy than they could be.

One of the greatest gifts that you can give to yourself - and everyone else - is compassion. During my life journey probably the most magical discovery or re-discovery has been compassion. It has been enriching to me and has helped me to appreciate, respect and help others. If you often find that you are afraid or numbed by life, compassion is likely to be the tonic that you need.

Do you find yourself setting out to do one task and ending up completing something else? Do you sometimes have so many ideas on the go, you are unsure which to do first? Or perhaps the passion for the task has faded and you are spending time dreaming up new plans, but are unsure which to run with.
