The Wrong Hand

Have you ever tried to do something using the wrong hand? I have been using the Action for Happiness – Happy New Year Calendar since the beginning of the year.  January 4th suggested I did something kind for myself – so I booked myself a back massage.  My therapist spotted that the muscles on the left side of my back were much more developed than the right.  Upon questioning me, she was concerned that I was using my right hand pretty much exclusively to muck out the horses and to poo pick the fields. The next day I decided to…..

I want what you have

“You have got to come and see this” I call to my husband.  “Your cat – Astro is definitely his cat – has managed to ensconce himself in the cat basket.” Nothing too remarkable about that I hear you say.  Well it tweaked my fancy as the cat basket had been sitting on some boxes in the utility room for about 5 years and had never been used by either of our cats. When we were “adopted” by our friend’s cat “Brother”, he decided to use the cat basket. He snores gently in it most of the day and all…..

In an Instant

In an instant we can fall in love, buy a new shirt and salivate at the smell of our favourite dish. We live in a world of instant gratification, snapchat and superfast broadband speeds.  We want everything now and, with interest free credit and buy-now-pay-later schemes, in many instances, we can have it now. And yet is this really how we human beings work (best)?  Is it really love at first sight? Or a compulsive urge to purchase that new shirt? Or some trigger in our nervous system that has us salivate at a smell? What actually happens in that…..

Awesomeness on Demand

“OMG – this is amazing – I am soooooo excited – wow – look at us – we are awesome!!”  I shout. For the non-horsey amongst you I am absolutely sure you would perceive this to be a gross overreaction to 8 strides of an exquisite medium trot – in fact you probably don’t know what medium trot is – as opposed to any other kind of trot, and thinking about it, do you even know what a trot looks like compared to a walk or a canter?                        …..

A Different Perspective

  I am currently re-reading Linda Kohanov’s amazing book “Riding between the Worlds”. Whilst I am stimulated by the content, what has struck me most is the difference in impact the book is having on me now compared to some 7 or 8 years ago. It is like I am reading a completely different book. If the book isn’t a revised edition (and it isn’t, I checked!), then the only thing that can have changed is my response to reading it. I am curious about the different levels of awareness that time has given me. This has led me to…..

50 Things I Love About My Life

“What would you like for your 50th birthday?” “Apart from a diamond necklace” I say a little flippantly to give myself time to think seriously about the question posed by one of my delegates. I was running an icebreaker session at the beginning of a Leadership Programme – everyone has a turn in the hot seat and the other attendees ask them questions.  A series of thoughts run through my head and are quickly dismissed- clothes, handbags, a new car – health, happiness, another 50 years but I am not sure I want to be 100!!! Then it came to me…..
