• She Was Beautiful

    “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” F Scott Fitzgerald

  • Ask Yourself…

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?” Marianne Williamson

  • Happy New Diary Day!

    If you buy a mid year diary that is… which I do because I never turn down an opportunity for new stationery! I love a new diary, it prompts me to reflect on my year so far and make plans for the year ahead. Although it’s proving slightly tricky this year! It’s certainly not the year I planned back in January, but every situation helps us to discover more about ourselves. 2020 has taught me that I can’t always control the situation, but I can control my reaction towards it. Which is sometimes as simple as switching off the news. I’m learning to take nothing for granted and to embrace…

  • Earth, Fire and Water

    “We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us, that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.” W.B. YeatsThe Celtic twilight: Faerie and Folklore

  • Zoe Asks – Sarah Bailey

    I asked “What top tip would you give to women, wanting to become the best version of themselves?” “When I was unwell and low a few years ago, I bought a pair of trainers and went for a run. Well run is probably stretching the definition somewhat. I actually did ‘Scout’s pace’ (something I’d learned as a kid… twenty paces walking, twenty paces of somewhat ungainly trotting)… I could keep it up for 12 minutes at least and when I calculated the ground I’d covered afterwards (to the Heath, round the running track and home again) I reckoned I’d run a mile. The thing is, my goal was so modest…
