Give as good as you get

And the week started like one long Monday… but an amazing one at that… It was pitch week for something, closure week for something else and a shoot for a third all rolled into one! But it’s when the pedal is to the metal that character truly shines out. Help and support came from some and others succumbed to their true colours which wasn’t … Read More Give as good as you get

Kiddie Games

And Friday night is Murder Mystery Party night…! Now with the week being one of our longest- 4 shoots, multiple edits, tons of digital work, travel, exercise and pain… it seemed like I’d never finish the 14 scripts for the Party! My mother wondered why I was doing so much for the party… Wouldn’t people just like to chill. And of course the party … Read More Kiddie Games

The Imperfect Fit

I was never part of any clique (group)- popular or unpopular – I just didn’t belong. I’ve never been the perfect fit anywhere I think. I’ve always been the one who is a bit too loud, a bit too ambitious, a bit ott romantic. I produced theatre for 18 years but was never arty enough. I won awards globally but then I was far … Read More The Imperfect Fit

To all the liars out there…

I have been blessed over the last few years to have been able to eliminate the majority of the negative people in my life¬†which has allowed more space for new, fabulous and positive people in… These people inspire me to think every day. They inspire me to be better, do more, feel more and achieve more. But every so often you’re given a blast … Read More To all the liars out there…

Today I feel good.

Start your day saying this. Even on the days where everything hurts, nothing wants to wake up and where the bed is your only friend. Today I feel good. Say it when everything is going stupidly wrong and when no-one around you is even trying to make sense and all that you created or worked for is shot to hell. Today I feel good. … Read More Today I feel good.

The Exhaustion of Being

  So over a dinner with friends the other evening, it seemed like everyone was suffering the same malady… ‘I’m exhausted!’… ‘Done by 9!’….’Cant’t get out! Don’t even want to!’ The problem, we realised was not age… (despite the snickering yawns) or our jobs even…. it was just mental fatigue and the aversion to just do anything after the very long days we were … Read More The Exhaustion of Being

#NoFailResolutions

So it’s that time of year when Resolutions have been made and more than a few have been already broken…The year has started and we’re in a ‘Same %&## , different year’ mood…! But before you give up hope and start counting the 50 odd weeks left for the next new year…I thought of some Resolutions that you should make, can keep and will … Read More #NoFailResolutions

Changing my Perspective

When friends ask me why I keep working when I’m sick or have horrendous pain because of a Multiple Sclerosis triggered attack, I never had much of an answer, except that I’m a workaholic and a bit nuts… But then I thought about it a bit and I realised that when I was sick and unable to move I missed moving, working and living … Read More Changing my Perspective

Happy Birthday to ME!

It’s that time of year again when I reminisce on the days gone by….on the months and years gone by…. and try and decide whether I did it right…. It’s BIRTH DAY time and the one time year where I take a few moments to think about where I am and where I wanted to be. So this last year has been interesting… I’ve … Read More Happy Birthday to ME!

Gotta keep moving, Gotta keep dreaming & FLEXI WORK HOURS !

Gotta keep moving… Gotta keep dreaming. As the sun scorches us all (and it’s only the first week of May) and 1/2 the year’s gone by quicker than a blink of the eye…it’s easy for the mid year depression to set in! We haven’t reached all the targets that seemed so easy in January and we’re exhausted. The days are longer, but patience shorter. … Read More Gotta keep moving, Gotta keep dreaming & FLEXI WORK HOURS !

No time? Why?

‘ I have no time,’ a constant complaint from all of us. ‘I can’t believe where the day /week/ month / year went!’ It went. And you were there. But you weren’t actually present. We’re always so busy. But busy achieving what? We spend less time with family and friends. We are divided between duties at office. We don’t even focus when we’re driving…we’re … Read More No time? Why?

Expecting NOT to Expect

Expectation is the root of all heartache William Shakespeare. Those of us who believe we don’t expect anything from anyone are lying to ourselves. We expect love and support from our friends and family. We expect growth and satisfaction from our jobs. We expect belief, trust, security and help. We expect dreams to come true and love stories to just happen. We expect. And … Read More Expecting NOT to Expect
