Preparing for Another Day One…

It was the very end of the World Chanpionships in 2018 and the emotion came at me like a wave, I wasn’t expecting to be sat in the foyer in the Birmingham Repertory Theatre that day tearful the journey was over. I’d done a number of bodybuilding shows that year, to prove to myself IContinue reading “Preparing for Another Day One…”

The growing opening of opportunities for the disabled community…

It can get better, I know. There is so much growth in this space to push and achieve. It’s been too long to turn around many issues on numerous occasions through the years.. HOWEVER! There is a movement, a number of people and organisations that are spearheading some fantastic opportunities for the disabled community and/orContinue reading “The growing opening of opportunities for the disabled community…”

Flexibility….The Biggest Challenge?

In more ways than one… Being physically flexible has presented its challenges through the years, learning there are just some things that (I physically) cannot do! However, that doesn’t distract from the shining light of CAN be done, it’s the never ending search to find the way. “Traditionally” playing the guitar for one (I justContinue reading “Flexibility….The Biggest Challenge?”

Disability & The Creativity On The Path

There sometimes appears to be apparent awkwardness towards “inspiration” and disability – it can generate quite a wide range of views on it – inspiring others “despite of” or “overcoming adversity” seems to stir opinion.

Qualifying ability on my terms…

Getting a swimming badge for effort, in one way, SUCKED. I’m not sure of the reasoning behind attaining it, whether it was because it took me more time or I wasn’t quite ready, but singling me out for sheer effort rather than finding a way to get across the pool for that distance badge neverContinue reading “Qualifying ability on my terms…”

The day is long, but the ‘dream’ is BIG…

4.30 -The alarm goes off, no fancy fanfare, just the time that I’ve become accustomed to waking. The reason? Born from a desire to fit my physical training BEFORE work so I can see my family later in the day, making it the ideal time to get up.  The difference in making time as opposedContinue reading “The day is long, but the ‘dream’ is BIG…”

5/6/7/8am Steps to Success

Step to it! (Yes I grew up in the 90’s/2000’s – BUT no I haven’t got a reunion tour ticket) I’m talking about how people start their day… I’ve been taking onboard lots of differing opinions of what folks go for in the mornings to start their day, successful business people, athletes etc. There areContinue reading “5/6/7/8am Steps to Success”

The 200 in 1 Book…

It was meant to be so well timed. A book a month, a commitment to self improvement, an obsorbing period learning from a host of authors….And I’m still on March’s text. And I am thrilled that is the case… Why? Because the book in question is Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss – The review wasContinue reading “The 200 in 1 Book…”
