Stop Being Average. Really, Stop it Now!

Posted on December 18th, 2014 by - 1 comment


Average. It’s not really an aspirational  word, is it? No one aspires to be ‘average’. Disregarding the mathematical meaning, here’s a standard (average) definition of average:

Do you want to be living an average life?

You are extraordinary.

You are unique.

You have endless opportunities to reinvent and change yourself.

However bad things may look, there is always an opportunity to begin to make changes, to aspire to be beyond average.

Take a few minutes to think about areas where you can be, or already are, above average. Think across all areas of your life: you may be an above average friend, an above average partner, an above average colleague, an above average choir member … You get the picture. Take a pen and try to list about 5 ways you can rise above the average.

And then put it into practice!

My Mum had carefully saved the clipping and we found it neatly folded with some old birthday cards. Well done, Mum! I was in a story which ran over two editions, and I got paid £25 which seemed like a lot of money at the

Gender Equality and Rumpelstiltskin

Posted on December 7th, 2014 by - 0 comments

I love a good evening at the theatre, and I am passionate about gender equality. It’s not often the two get combined in one delightful package! My local theatre, The Theatre Royal Bath, has a dedicated children’s space, The Egg. This Christmas season they are showing Rumpelstiltskin (they don’t go in for traditional ‘sacchariney’ shows).
