“Everything is figure-outable” Marie Forleo

Love my time on Unite and Inspire!!

Unite-and-Inspire

This sweet and inspiring video by Marie Forleo is a great watch to start your day off on a positive note. Marie has a successful multi -million dollar life coaching business, was invited by Richard Branson to South Africa to help mentor young entrepreneurs and most recently did a session on  Oprah’s super soul Sunday to share a magical mantra to help you get through life!

She talks about how her marriage was on the brink of failure because she struggled to get the work/life balance. She admits she and her husband had not been on a holiday in the 7 years they were together because she was so tied up with work. She finally decides to treat them both to a holiday-however before they even get on the plane they have a nightmare sequence of events!

Watch this clip to find out how she learnt that everything in life…

There’s this job see…

This is Misty Books!!

I was out when they phoned the first time.

They left a message on the answer phone apparently.

As usual I never listened to it.

Well you don’t do you? It’s usually PPI, or double glazing, or that bloke from Sky I’m having a row with – still!

Then someone called round.

With a friend.

The neighbour told them I’d gone into town. He said they seemed a bit put out even though he’d said that he thought that I wouldn’t be long.

In fact, he told me later that he thought he’d heard one of them mutter, ‘bollocks!‘ under his breath.

I got a couple of texts on the mobile. ‘Ring! Urgently!‘ they said. But my battery was nearly flat so I put it off.

Unfortunately the emails they sent went straight to ‘junk‘. I never look in there – do you?

Then…

This is Tales From the Cabbage Patch!

Tales from the Cabbage Patch

Today I am grateful that Xpresspost (Canada Post’s supposedly fast, cost-effective service with tracking and on-time guarantees) finally got it right. Late, to be sure, but right in the end. This is one of those stories that my father surely would have told about one of his friends had it happened to them so I am confident that I would have his approval to share this story with you.

As many of you are aware from my previous posts ‘About the Cabbage Patch‘ and ‘L is for

Fiddlin' Jim 001 Fiddlin’ Jim

Laughter‘, my father was a paranoid schizophrenic and an alcoholic. When he was compliant with his medications, he was a happy fella who loved to play the fiddle, tell stories, a few jokes and the odd outlandish tale. He had the greatest laugh to go along with all those jokes and stories. In his heart of hearts, he was your typical…

My MS Story

Read Jen’s MS story at Tripping Through Treacle!

Tripping Through Treacle

So, I was a normal 13 year old girl, attending school, making new friends following an across the sea move from Canada and basically just getting on with being a teenager.

When I couldn’t see the basketball hoop at school, I had no idea that this was the start of something really scary, life changing in fact. I just thought that I needed glasses – what other reason would there be for the hoop to look fuzzy? I must have mentioned this to my parents – cue LOADS of different tests, including one where I was able to miss school (yes!) and have electrode type things put all over my head whilst, I am guessing, the doctors looked to see what my brain was doing. I still remember sitting in the car on my way home from that appointment, picking away at the glue like stuff stuck in my hair…

Great post on Ann Cavitt Fisher!

It all started when I was having champagne with Captain Darcy.

He was a handsome man, and we had talked many times over the two weeks of the cruise. I was not surprised I’d been invited to the Captain’s dinner. The Captain’s guests gathered for champagne and conversation before dinner, and while I was chatting with the couple from New York, Darcy took the club chair next to me. He touched his glass to mine and smiled.

Then someone turned a propane torch on under my derriere and my core temperature rocketed into the stratosphere.

Vincent Price in The House of Wax. A hot flash can make you feel like your face is melting off – like Vincent Price in The House of Wax.

I looked at the circle of people sitting around me, sipping their wine and talking.

As my makeup began running down my face in rivulets like Vincent Price’s skin in the House…
