Hello my friends,
how have you all been? If you don’t know who I am, that’s purely because I went away from the online world for a bit and then forgot I had a blog.
I actually remembered I had a blog this week.
Terrible, I know. I started creating a website for my coaching business and there was this nagging feeling telling me: ‘wait a second, don’t you already have a website?’ An honest story, I swear. 😉
Anyhow, how have my last months been?
I read a lot of coaching and psychology related books. Also, a lot of marketing / strategy related material. It is a lot to take in but then to show up in the real world and to apply it is another level. I am loving every minute of it. 🙂 If you ever fancy hearing about any of these books, please give me a shout and I will tell you more. 🙂
From the world of fiction I read:
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens – such a treat to read. It’s a coming of age story / murder mystery / tribute to nature. Owens is a zoologist and her love of nature is apparent from every page.
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah – another emotional novel set during the World War II in France. I started reading it during the 75th anniversary of D-Day and despite not generally loving historic fiction that much, this was one of those exceptions I would gladly read over and over again.
I absolutely adored those books and will review both of them. They made me both cry and laugh and I highly recommend them. 🙂
- Cassandra Clare‘s first book in the Infernal Devices series – Clockwork Angel was also something I quite enjoyed. I love London and being transported back to it during Victorian era was fun to experience. I am currently reading the second book in the series. 🙂
TV-wise, I am enjoying watching second season of Killing Eve, had fun with Netflix’ Dead to Me and was seriously addicted to Chernobyl. I wasn’t massively in love with the last season of the Game of Thrones but I appreciated how theatrical some of those episodes were and I thought overall acting was ace. Especially Emilia Clarke‘s. 🙂 I recently discovered Nashville and already have a feeling this will be my thing – drama, drama and some country music – I’m in.
My main focus, outside of my my full time day job, is on my coaching business.
It has been such a privilege to start working with many amazing clients and to witness what they are capable of. I always knew they could do amazing things but seeing them realise that too – that’s my WHY my friends. When things get busy beyond what I want them to be, I keep on reminding myself that particular reason, grit my teeth and keep on going.
I am likely to be writing very sporadically over the next months, but if you would like to stay in touch, you can find me on these social media platforms Instagram & Facebook. Focus there is on coaching but as I talk about anything that relates to our minds, reading and books are part of it. 🙂 I would love to see you there. ❤️
Before I go, I want to give a massive shout out to Norrie @ ReadingUnderTheBlankie, who I have managed to meet in person a few times this year. Thanks Norrie for the awesome Dead to Me recommendation. 🙂 It shows how wonderful this bookish community is – it’s equally amazing meeting bloggers in person as well as reading their blogs. I am so grateful for this lovely blogosphere. ❤️ Thank you.
Have a wonderful summer and if I don’t see you on social media, I’ll see you here sometime soon.
