It’s all too hard

Don’t you wish you had a magic wand, or a ‘fast forward’ button sometimes? There are situations we don’t want to be in. Things we wish we could undo. Paths we find ourselves on where we feel lost or unsure and question the choices we made that led us there.

There are things we want to fix and times when we desperately wish we weren’t the adults people appear to be looking to for leadership. Because sometimes it’s not easy. It’s not obvious. We don’t have the answers we need or the solutions we’re looking for.


When things are uncertain, what we do have in our favour is our own vulnerability. As scary as that sounds, it’s our vulnerability that makes us strong. It’s our capacity to ask for help and let people into our lives that builds the strength we need to tackle the hard stuff.

Yet we’ve been hearing messages of independence since we were toddlers! “You’re a big girl. You can do it yourself.”

Well … not necessarily. There’s a lot we can handle, but we all have a point beyond which we’ll sink without assistance. Maybe it’s you who’s floundering now, while someone who’s finding life a little easier tosses you a life buoy.

Later on, you’ll be the one on firmer ground, lending your support to a friend who needs it. That’s how it works.

We can all get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as we have people who love us … and we’re prepared to let them in.

All the best

Live Workshop in Adelaide


Our two-hour workshop will have you laughing, crying and – best of all – realising you are NOT the only one wondering why you’re not further ahead, more organised, more confident, fitter, happier, more satisfied in your relationships, in a stronger place financially, more patient, more relaxed, more ambitious … more of all the things you want the most.

  • Learn how to recognise what’s holding you back, and how to push past these gremlins to achieve the goals you set
  • Understand what it’s costing you to let them win, and where to draw the line
  • Embrace the power of small steps and get more things done
  • Feel empowered to move through tasks more quickly
  • Learn about an actionable, motivating and achievable way of creating goals and maintaining positive momentum

Join us on October 21st, 3-5pm, followed by an after party!
