HI, I’M SARAH.

I’m a writer of copy.

Here on my blog I write about life, balance and personal development. I also sprinkle in a bit about creativity and self expression with a side order of storytelling.

TEN THINGS

I’m not here to preach or to express regret over things I’ve done in the past that I wish I had done differently. I don’t have regrets, or I should say I don’t dwell on things in the past but allow mistakes to inform my choices today. However, at the age of 41 I’m...

WHY I WENT ‘DARK’

There's term used when undercover operatives have to disappear for a while to protect themselves from discovery. It's know as 'going dark'. I'm not an undercover spy BUT I've had to disappear whilst I get my head on straight. You see, I have a confession to make....

NOTICING DEPRESSION?

Procrastination seems to be a theme of mine when it comes to writing my articles. Today though, it’s more intense because I’m about to share something that I wonder if I really should share. The reason being, I wonder what people will think - not in terms of judging...

WHAT’S WRONG WITH BEING COMFORTABLE?

My journey in the online space over the last two years has been like a roller coaster. I know that is a cliched saying and whilst it has been ‘emotional’ I mean that it’s been more about the path, to where I am now, has taken me all over the place. I see many online...

WHY I QUIT COACHING

I fell into the online world by accident. I have always been curious and followed the breadcrumbs - sometimes this leads to procrastination, other times it leads me to an entirely new world of possibilities. Finding the online entrepreneurial world was like finding a...

I SURVIVED THE SUMMER

I survived the summer. In more ways than one. I have my sanity (just), but I've also managed to increase my income each month EVEN though my kids have been at home! Admittedly I have had some help, but I’ve also navigated some emotional ups and downs - and I’m going...

MONEY, HAPPINESS AND PUSHING FOR MORE

It's summer, so the kids are off school which in itself is hard work. My kids are pretty good and don't take much to entertain, but still it's a division of mental energy. Todd Herman, who is a coach and productivity expert talks about context switching and how this...

HOW I CLEARED MY CREDIT CARD DEBT

This is the second article I am writing about how I cleared my credit card debt and stepped into a much more powerful version of myself who really considers where my money is spent. First though I have to share with you a new framework of thinking that I have...

CELEBRATING BEING OUT OF DEBT

I have always been a future focused gal. Always looking forward to winning an Oscar (when I was an actress), always wondering what new adventure was around the corner, always trying to figure out how to earn more money next month or next year. I used to have a ritual...

REFLECTIONS ON 20 DAYS OF STORIES

You may know that I challenged myself to write 20 personal stories in four weeks. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can find out more here to read the catalyst post and the 20 stories. I decided I wanted to write a reflection on piece on my thoughts of...

THE ICE QUEEN

I was an Ice Queen. This story is difficult to share but I feel I need to. I need to document it and put it out there for a number of reasons that I’m not going share right now. When I was younger, I was shy. I wasn’t particularly good at asking boys out, although I...

MY BROTHER

My older brother and I are very close. We don’t often speak because of our family responsibilities, our work and the fact we live three hours apart, but we’re connected through deep family love which nothing can break. Granted, there have been times when we’ve not...

TAKEN? THE DAY MY KIDS WENT MISSING

This is one of those moments where your stomach lurches. Not just a little, but you go from zero to 100 in a split-second and you’re sent into a blind panic. It was a normal day, like any other. Realising I was almost out of the essential groceries, I decided to pop...

THE DAY I JUMPED OUT OF A PLANE

I was more than half way through my round the world trip when the day came where I jumped out of a plane. It was St Patrick's day and I was in a little town called Taupo in New Zealand. I know the date exactly because during my travels I kept a hand written diary. I...
