My Favourite Reflection Questions

The best way for me to access the not so pretty parts of my mind is to write it out. Free flow writing, without judgement or filtering for about twenty minutes and BOOM! There it is. It’s almost as if I try to tackle the not pretty head on it’s too daunting and I hide. […]

Maven Matters: On Why I Reread Books

I find a huge amount of comfort in the familiarity of a well worn story. Tales that I can nearly recite passages from I’ve read them so many times. My favourite book, Anne of Green arable so, has fallen in two. Sometimes I just open up anywhere and start reading, falling into known world. It’s […]

A Simple Idea for Achieving Personal Goals

I’m currently training for my first half marathon (eeek I know!). Out pounding the pavement I had a reoccuring thought, focus on small steps and go further. I wish I could lay claim to this nugget of wisdom but I can’t. It comes from an episode of the James Altucher Show. His interviewee (who I […]
