It is better to be present than give presents.

It is better to be present than give presents. Thank you to the many people I’ve connected with this year, who gave me an unimaginable gift.

Thank you for the irreplaceable gift of your time.

As I head off for a short break tomorrow and I didn’t want to leave without saying Thank You!

Thank you for meeting, talking, messaging, listening, reading, coffee’ing and connecting with me. Thank you for encouraging, challenging, stimulating and evoking me.

My life is honestly so much richer because of you! And I wish I could list you all!

You were present.

You gave me the gift of your time.

Thank you!

And as we head towards time with friends and family and then into 2018 it reminds me…

It is better to be present than give presents.

May we be ‘present’ this Christmas!

Is today your favourite day?

"What day is it?" asked Pooh. "It's Today." squeaked Piglet. "My Favorite day." said Pooh.“What day is it?” asked Pooh.

“It’s Today.” squeaked Piglet.

“My Favorite day.” said Pooh.

Is today your favourite day? Or are you caught up in the frustrations of yesterday or concerns for tomorrow.

Maybe today is the biggest scariest day you’ve had in a while. Don’t let that stop you looking for moments that make today special.






Make today “your favourite day.”

As I type it’s raining and bleak, there is pressure at work and meetings ahead I don’t know the outcome of. It could be any other day really.

But it’s the only today I get to live in. So at some point I’ll pause to laugh, or steal some time back to take a stroll, or simply pause to look around and marvel at the world, or all of the above.

If today is to be a favourite, we need to choose to make it so.
