Happy Spring time to you, your family & work colleagues. May this month be amazing for you as things gently unlock and evolve around the World, take a moment to ask yourself what you need to be okay. It will be different for every person.
I would love to know how the first three month’s of the year have been flowing for you? Are you happy or stuck? I am all about helping YOU make the most of Spring, a time when nurturing good things is key, and pulling up old weeds incredibly helpful.
What makes you, YOU?
What excites you?
What scares you?
Take a leap this Spring,
Realise your potential,
Allow yourself to grow’
Grab a pen and notebook
and write down your thoughts and actions to make your April flow.
Spring is the perfect time for pulling up mind weeds, embracing fear and nurturing what you want to bloom, Mind, Body and Adventuring Soul – connecting with people and places which make you happy.
Where’s your happy place?
Here is my thought for the fortnight about overcoming fear and embracing change, kind of like an April Fool’s to your Fears right?
‘Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming. And don’t be afraid of wearing your heart on your sleeve – in declaring what you love, what you want to make, the life that you’ve had, and the lives you can help. For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing. So if you’ve got something to say, say it from the rooftops.’T Hiddleston
Sometimes things fall apart, and it’s a good thing. Honestly, because if they didn’t you would never get the opportunity to learn, adapt and grow. That doesn’t mean falling apart, loss, getting injured or ill is easy. Yet you can get through this. I’ve been coaching several people who are having a challenging time during the pandemic, from a working single Mum to a CEO, U21 Team GB athletes & a Media Celebrity. I share the context, as it doesn’t really matter who you are, life can sometimes be a challenge. I wanted to share with you a few tips which you can ‘play’ with over the next few days, which might help you to feel better.
Have a think about what you are ‘not coping’ with, or what fear you have. What’s behind that fear? You know when someone says, trust you gut instinct, or go with your heart? Yes? The thing with that is, that often fear causes us to say no, as it’s our protection mechanism. What if you peak behind the fear, peak behind your limits, what possibility is there….?
Go on, be really brave and have a look. Because behind your fear, are the possibilities, and with the right support, coaching and belief, you may just reach those possibilities and beyond.
If you are reading this and thinking I would love to do that, I just need some support, get in touch and let’s see if we can embrace and reduce the fears….
I have coaching all the time, I think being coached is key as a coach to offer you the best. So don’t be afraid, leap…. see what could happen this Spring for you.
Dare to do different if you can’t do what you want right now….
Something is always possible, even if not everything.

I bought a tree for Jenny’s Birthday in her memory – it’s been planted this week, on the Downs in Bristol near Clay Pit Road- with a little bench beside it so all can go and visit – here’s my words & thoughts.
FRE Skincare have a little quiz to find out what may suit your skin – the more I learn about skin & sunlight, the more I am reminded how important it is to take good care – I like the Glow Body Oil, Night & Day Creams & love FRE values to give back to charity & plant a tree with every set bought. They have 30% off some products and you can get 10% off everything with the code KIMINGLEBY.
Interesting article on How Social Media is making us sick potentially, plus various sports performance blogs of interest on Brad’s website, worth a look if you are drawn.
As said at the beginning and supportively sharing, as things gently open up, everyone will have different needs, take some time to connect in to what’s most important for you. Who do you want to see, what do you want to do? And perhaps not. How can you look after yourself so you don’t burnout, or perhaps you feel this already and we could help?
We have never as a collective society experienced anything like this, so don’t be hard on yourself, but do commit to asking for support as sometimes a safe, nonjudgemental, qualified space is much easier and more helpful to provide space to talk things through and make a plan.
