Do you ever question why you feel bad? The majority of the time I feel bad is as a result of a thought I’ve just entertained.
Without the thought, I’d feel perfectly fine. I’d be in the moment.

I’m delighted to announce the return of my Positive Living classes, starting Thursday 5th May, 8-9pm, in the beautiful Abbins House Holistic Centre, Eyre Street, Newbridge.
For those of you who can’t make Thursday evenings, I’ll be running the course on Wednesday mornings from 10:00-11:00am starting 18th May.
Join me for a fun, inspiring, interactive class where you will meet like-minded people and receive tools and tips to live a happy, peaceful, fulfilling life.
Classes will include mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques, and exercises which will challenge your thinking, unblock fears and get to know the real you.
The theme of Week 1 is Presence – being present, mindfulness, breathing, meditation, becoming aware of thoughts but not attaching to them.
The theme of week 2 is Thoughts & Feelings – becoming aware of our thoughts, observing but not attaching to them, questioning them, challenging our beliefs, allowing our feelings and uncovering what’s beneath them so we’re no longer ruled by them.
€40 for a 4-week course.
The past month has been weighed down with money worries, career anxiety, fear for the future and feelings of insecurity. This in turn has had an effect on my self-esteem; how I see myself and how I feel when I’m with others.
The main outcome of a much-needed business coaching session this week was that I need to love myself. And yesterday, I had another revelation.
Today I attend a Life Coach for a much-needed, sort of dreaded business coaching session. We speak about timelines and deadlines. The Life Coach draws a “To-Do” box on the whiteboard. We also discuss ideas, fears and things that are weighing me down.
I confess that I’ve really been beating up on myself lately. I’ve been comparing myself unfavourably to others, calling myself names and believing that I’m “less than”. My mean streak is at a peak.
A dear friend sent me a link to an interesting TED talk on love and relationships given by Mandy Len Catron. The theme of love and relationships had already been playing on my mind.
After watching the clip, I confessed to my friend that I long to share intimacy and affection with someone of the male variety. I quickly added that I’m just feeling impatient and that I should simply be present.
Today, I decide to spend the whole day chilling out at home. I have a lie-in, I meditate, I eat breakfast.
I reply to a few text messages. I attempt to get cheap car insurance. I have lunch. I read emails. I watch Whip It for the second time.
As you know, I recently injured myself while exercising. What I neglected to mention was that, prior to this, I’d regularly been getting sudden pains in my head.
At the time, it struck me that I probably needed to take it easy but I just couldn’t stop. I was always on the go and I was exercising more than ever. I felt tired a lot but adrenaline was fuelling me and I thought I was doing great.
