We are all unique and can bring something completely different to the table. Remember, in one way or another, you can offer something no one else can! Think about what it is that makes you different and love it. We should all be confident about what makes us special and what we can bring to the World. We can all achieve amazing things. Do you think Alexander Graham Bell doubted his abilities, perhaps – but he must have been confident to keep going, and we might not be living with telephones if he didn’t. We all need to believe in our own abilities. Every single person counts. A doctor can help save someone’s life, a PR can have an effect on brand presence, a store assistant…

The week before last I worked a crazily busy week, 60 hours and Thursday being the first day I left in the light. BUT I loved it. I’m not saying I could do it every week!

I know I’ve been a little quiet for the last couple weeks, only a couple posts and not much else. The reason – a new job! I started just over two weeks ago now, yes I know I had the long Easter weekend but taking everything in and settling into my new company and new role has drained me. Easter weekend I thought I was coming down with whatever everyone else has been suffering from…achey-ness, sniffles, lacking energy…and so thought the best thing for me would be to relax.

Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, mini golf might be more an activity of choice with it coming up to spring and people finally coming out of hibernation, tv season cramming and movie marathons. Yes I am getting my hopes up and know it’s super cold but seriously it can’t be winter for too much longer right?  Mini Golf can be super fun! But also extremely frustrating… On holiday with Alex in Spain we decided we’d spend an afternoon playing games, including table tennis, ice hockey (I was terrible at this, too scared I’d get hit by the puck :P) and of course…mini golf. I thought I did quite well – scores were pretty close, until one dreaded hole! The ball…just wouldn’t…go in the hole!! I was…
