The unconsciousness of social media

The unconsciousness of social media

The jet lag had me up just as the first rays of sun were climbing above the horizon, so I poured myself a hot lemon drink, moved the chair to face the sea and settled in to watch mother nature in all her beauty perform […]

Create > Consume

Create > Consume

It’s been three months since we arrived back in London and I’m still finding my equilibrium here. The balance between the “oh so amazing” stuff that is happening every minute of every day and the need to sit in the sun and drink my cup […]

Just because…

Just because…

It’s just gone 10am on a Saturday morning and here I am covered in four different coloured dyes, dancing and singing to cheesy pop songs with 5,000 other fun-loving individuals. The Run or Dye 5km run is about to commence yet I don’t plan to run […]

You define yourself by your actions

You define yourself by your actions

C’mon Robyn, think of another song. Let it Go from Frozen and the Theme from the Greatest American Hero just weren’t doing it for me anymore. The song that came to mind was I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts and it put a smile […]

When you think you can’t, you probably can

When you think you can’t, you probably can

Our ability, our strength and our idea of what is possible is most likely all in our head. One month ago I couldn’t do a single full push-up. It was probably a combination of bad technique, little strength and a thought which strongly said – […]

The road less traveled

The road less traveled

Most of us have plans for life. A road-map of sorts that we plan to travel to get to “where we want to be” or “the place of success” or whatever we want to call it – perhaps death if you will, as to be […]

Responsibility code for life

Responsibility code for life

The ski season came to an end on Sunday with a glorious showing of blue skies and slushy spring skiing conditions. It was the perfect send-off from four and a half months of skiing in Fernie, Canada. Four months where I tried new things and […]

A place to belong

A place to belong

Jocks. Cheerleaders. Geeks. Thespians. Outsiders. Skaters. Hipsters. Emos. Every American high-school TV show and movie highlights the cliques that form in adolescence. The groups that seem to form naturally as we grow and get a sense of our identity and work out who we most […]

Calling bullshit

Calling bullshit

I’m a fairly confident skier. I’m definitely no expert but I can get down any run in a resort (although with style is another thing entirely!). On a clear blue sky day with clear visibility and lovely groomed runs I’m pretty darn fast. That is […]
