In Search of a Creative Orgasm

in search of creative orgasm

“The thing is most people are afraid to step out, to take a chance beyond their established identity.” – Demi Moore

Have you ever felt sexually frustrated?

You know, when you want need that hot, steamy and passionate connection with someone you fancy the pants off, but they’re not around to satisfy your needs?

Or worst yet, when you’re in a committed relationship, but it’s gone stale and it’s been a hot minute since you really experienced ecstasy?

Well, that’s how I’m currently feeling!

No, not about my bedroom activities, but about my creative desires.

I’m creatively frustrated.

And I have been for a very long time.

The fairy tale

In my case, I’ve been in a committed relationship with Society and the spark died a long time ago.

In fact, I’m not sure there was ever really a spark.

Society was my reliable and safe “Knight in Shining Armor”.

I grew up being told that Society was the perfect catch.

I spent my childhood being groomed for my relationship with Society so when it eventually happened, I knew what I was getting.

I knew what was expected of me in the relationship and I always knew where I stood.… Read more

Be Fearless and Trust Yourself

Be Fearless and Trust Yourself

“The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect.” ~ Brene Brown

Sometimes in life you have to throw caution to the wind and go with the flow. You have to throw out everything you know to do or have been told or taught to do and follow your instincts.

Normally when I start writing a blog post I have an idea for the title and the content. Today however I am writing free flow to see where this one takes me. I do have an idea about what I want to say, but I do not have a succinct title to focus me.

Until a few months ago, I would spontaneously write each blog post. This meant I had no idea what topic I was going to write about until I sat down to write it. Then I started reading about how to effectively run a successful blog and lots of people recommend having a schedule where you plan in advance what to write each week. So, being the … Read more

3 limiting beliefs about failure that could be holding you back

3 failure limiting beliefs

“Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.” ~ Zig Ziglar

Failure.

The word alone is enough to put the fear of God into people. No-one wants to fail. No-one wants to be considered a failure.

Failure is one of the biggest fears that holds people back and prevents them from achieving their goals and aspirations. I too am guilty of letting the fear of failure hold me back.

Getting to the root of the fear of failure

The fear of failure is rooted in limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are thoughts about yourself, others or the world around you that prevent you from being your best, and living your best life. They normally exist at a sub-conscious level so more often than not, you are not even aware that they exist.

Limiting beliefs can cause feelings of frustration, procrastination, jealousy and resentment, to name just a few, because they can hold you back from achieving your goals and aspirations. They can also cause low self-esteem and lack of confidence, and often you are not even aware of where the feelings stem from.

I’ve recently reached a milestone in my business which means it’s time to step up. It’s time for … Read more

How I released my “life after thirty” fears

happy_and_thirty-something

Today is my 34th birthday. Happy Birthday to me!

A few years ago, that would have been so depressing. I mean I’ve always loved my birthday – what’s not to love about presents and cake! However, getting older was not something that excited me. As I approached my thirties, the dread of getting older increased year after year, as did my fears for the future.

Looking back I can see that my fears were all based on time running out and I was focused on all of the things I may not get to achieve.

Turning 30

The year I turned 29 I took voluntary redundancy and embarked on an exciting journey of self employment which actually was more like a journey of self discovery.

In the months that followed I was involved in a number of freelance opportunities and started delving deeper into the world of personal development so when I turned 30 the following year I felt good. This feeling however did not last long. My family went through some major challenges and I personally started to question my life. My purpose, my role and my future.

The clock is ticking…

Why are you so scared to live your life?

What are you scared of

Seriously, what’s the deal with that?

I know there’s so much you want to do with your life. I also know there’s a lot of crap you’d rather not be doing. So the question is why aren’t you living the life you really want to live?

You know the life that gets you so excited; the life that you imagine when you’re lying on a sun lounger somewhere or maybe when you’re going from one amazing place to another with nothing but a backpack?

OK, I know I’m making it sound simple, like you can just pack up the job you hate today and start living the life of your dreams right now.

As if right?

Why so scared?

Last night I attended a talk called How to Build a Business You Can Travel the World With by John P Morgan. It was great and I left feeling inspired however I also left feeling a little frustrated with myself. It dawned on me that the only reason I’m not living the life of my dreams – running a business supporting women who are unhappy in their job, while having the freedom to travel when I want – is basically because … Read more
