Once is Enough

We all have one shot at life. (That sounds like a really cheesy ad for an equally cheesy movie.) If you remove the dairy products, however, it IS true... We don't get to shout, "STOP! I screwed this life up big-time, can I start again  with a new one please?" You can however, take a… Continue reading Once is Enough

We all make mistakes, we all fall down. And it's easy to be discouraged when we fail at something. But those who achieve great things have one difference to the rest of us. They still make mistakes.

Get Excited

It seems these days that everyone has seen everything. Information is right at our fingertips and nothing is new or exciting. We're all so jaded. What is there to be excited about? Everything.

Who are you?

When you introduce yourself to someone new, do you say, 'Hi, I'm Jacqui, I am an accountant / am a doctor / sell shoes etc.' Is that who you really ARE? Or is it what you do for a living? Who are you REALLY? If you love to scribble down ideas in a journal or… Continue reading Who are you?

Need a smile today? Please take one.

What makes your soul soar?

If we take a moment away from the loud craziness of life just to sit and be, we can listen to the small voice inside that tells us what we really want. What makes your soul soar? To create something original? To sing? To take a week off work and read book after book? To… Continue reading What makes your soul soar?
