"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't- you're right." - Henry Ford Yesterday's post, "It's either Perfection or Failure", was inspired by my own experiences and belief system.

Lavender from the allotment at work Here's my latest video, which I'll go into a bit more underneath: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/vid_20190423_163005.mp4 I usually look forward to the consistency of my working day routine and the general predictability of the day's activities, but lately it's felt like more of a task. Yesterday at work, I felt the familiar … Continue reading “It’s either Perfection or Failure”
Firstly, Happy Easter! It's a beautiful sunny day here in the South of England. In about an hour I'm heading to my parent's house to host an egg hunt. I like to interpret the Easter Bunny in a slightly unconventional manner, in that it is actually a fiend who steals the eggs from children, as … Continue reading A sketch for the soul

Free Clipart image from http://clipart-library.com/busy-nurse-cliparts.html I can almost guarantee you that these words have passed the lips of every nurse, at some point in their career. This topic arose following today's diary entry: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/100419-1.mp4 Like many nurses, I work 12.5 hour shifts. My commute is 1 hour and 10 minutes each way. I wake up … Continue reading “It’s OK, I wont have a break…”
Have a look at my latest video, so we can carry on from where we left off: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/080419.mp4 This is me on our Honeymoon in Barbados, back in December 2018. It was a beautiful 30 degrees. The sand is soft and white like icing sugar and the waves lap over you like a warm bath. … Continue reading Feel the fear and do it anyway!
Watch my latest video here, to get on the same page: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/030419.mp4 I can hide it no longer- I have developed an obsession with toilets. No, its not some really messed up fetish (totally each to their own though- no judgement here...); I have unofficially become an independent reviewer for toilets around my area.

Sometimes I sit back and think; "We don't deserve animals!" For as long as I can remember, I've lived with animals around me.

Have a watch so we're on the same page: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/010419.mp4 I get so frustrated with panic sometimes! It sounds silly that I don't panic about panic anymore doesn't it? Since learning coping strategies for my panic attacks, I feel I'm now pretty good at handling them (most of the time). I like to lie on … Continue reading Overcoming obstacles
