a lot of pacing

So I have been kinda absent from here. 

I blame many things.

  1. facebook and its damned easily accessible, updateable and addictive status updates
  2. laziness
  3. restlessness
  4. too much to say
  5. nothing to say
  6. inertia
  7. silence
  8. play
  9. distraction
And now it is time to pull the finger out so to speak.  Tomorrow I start the Glasgow LIFE CLUB. (Insert wild applause here)

I am excited and nervous and also again excited. It is putting my money where my mouth has been for a while and I am thrilled to be actually walking the talk a bit more.

So, here is where I put my intention for myself and for the group.

I really want to show up 100% fully me.  I want transparency and full permission to try stuff and fail and stay.  It is my leadership stake.  

I want to create a safe, fun and easy space where people can take their brain off and stay a while.  And have a rest from the pace and masks they wear in the 'real' world and get to just breathe and take the time to ponder what they want more of.  And along they way, they get to meet other kind folks in their similar boat. I want them to come away with possibilities of what life can be. 

Now to get all my particles in a row. And decide what to wear!

Happy Me Day!

Here's a taste of Life Clubs...

The good Life Club folks have chosen the third Sunday in September each year to be Me Day. This year it’s Sunday September 21st.

Since many people don't (YET!) have access to a Life Club, we wanted to treat you and everyone else to a taster of what our clubbers experience weekly.

To celebrate this day, Life Clubs has created a special Happy Me Day card for you. Print one off and recognise how unique and important you are.

You can also download a Happy Me Day workshop which is a fun way to discover and celebrate you.

We think that Me Day is the perfect excuse to have your friends round for a catch-up and do the workshop together. To make it easier we have also designed invitations that you can send out to anyone you’d like to share your Me Day with. The invitations include a quiz for you and your friends to fill in.

Me Day is a great day to take time to think about the most important person in your life – you.

Happy Me Day to you all.
