Creativity

Music and Me
Most people can recall some music from their childhood and for me music was a very strong influencer in my life. My Dad loved music and was a singer in his younger years and I have memories of sitting there listening to The Who with him, my Mum loves music too and it was a family tradition to play music on a Sunday afternoon.
My first formal training in music was in my early teens where I learned the flute initially at Secondary School, this then changed to me learning the alto saxophone later on – which I succeeded with and became an accomplished musician gaining my qualifications and winning awards. You will see in my novels that I have had an on and off relationship with music but it has always been there. I remember my Dad often say “music will bite you again in the future” and it did.
I have started playing again and it is wonderful. Performing makes me feel like a centrifuge of activity that wants to explode, learning a new song is like falling in love and the warmth that it gives you.
What are your creative hobbies and how do they make you feel?
I use music often in my coaching as it is a way of determining your mindset and allowing free flowing thoughts to come about for you to grow. I really feel I have accomplished something when someone’s music changes over the sessions.
In the near future I am running a course that will encompass this and allow you to express yourself as a creative – if you would like further information please like this post.

I listened to some amazing stories, met lots of new people and it has made me realise my reach with my novel and business.

Networking with women who are your wavelength and you will feel fantastic.

Who is your inspirational woman? Mine is my Mum – who has been my rock and my best friend.

A Return to Being Me

We all block out things and interest due to painful connections to the past. And even as a coach I’m not immune to this – I’m still working at me.

After a coaching session this week, I was encouraged to do something I loved for 15 minutes a day, something I have being doing which has made me feel wonderful and full of energy.

One thing I love is nusic specifically performing. However, due to lack of confidence and these negative connections I gave up playing a long time ago. Until today. 💥

When I got my alto saxophone out, she shone like a bright, golden star. I felt the symbiotic relationship between us blossom again. My hands positioned instantly as muscle memory kicked in.

I took a breath and began to warm her up and played. It wasn’t perfect but I let out my siren call. I took that step out of my comfort zone and something changed inside of me.

Something beautiful is coming.😍

The Trust

Sailing and learning to trust the process.

If you can remember learning to walk you are fortunate, but I want you to sit there for a moment and think of something you have learned that has challenged you.

Keep it in your mind and replay the steps, what becomes apparent to you? After a while come back to the present.

Learning a new skill is hard but worthwhile, remember that we all see things differently and what may be easy for some, it could be difficult for another.

For me, sailing was like that and has other challenges like learning where which halyard is and where goes where. But I learnt to trust the process and become present to it.

So, if you are learning a new skill be aware of how much you achieve and note how far you have come. Learning to trust yourself is a difficult task and as a coach I can help you with that.

Visualise the end goal and be aware of how it feels, looks, smells and write it down. Manifestation is a wonderful thing to trust in.

As always, you can always message me.

Good evening to you all.
