Glass half full or half empty

By Clare Wildman / 30th September 2015 / Comments Off on Glass half full or half empty

  You often hear people talking about the differentiation between how they see the proverbial glass; half full or half empty. It’s used as a pointer about how positively they see life.  I’ve noticed though that there’s another distinction that is worth looking out for when it comes to how you view your achievements or…

Should – who says?

By Clare Wildman / 25th August 2015 / Comments Off on Should – who says?

Since I started my life coaching training I’ve become very sensitive to the word ‘should’ and love to replace it with ‘could’. Recently I’ve noticed that every time someone in the coaching room says ‘should’ my first question is “who says?”  It’s far better than asking someone to do the ‘should/could swap’ as it really…

I’ve just finished reading a really interesting article about loneliness on the BBC website .  It raises interesting points about the way that our lifestyles have changed and how that may have led to more and more people categorising themselves as being lonely.

By Clare Wildman / 24th June 2015 / Comments Off on Confidence – Why do we want it ?

Confidence – what is it? No really what is it?! The other thing I don’t really understand is why do we think it is so valuable? Let me explain. Over the years I’ve heard lots of views on confidence and the more I hear the more I question.  It seems to me that we are…

The posts here on my blog are normally my own but this morning I have been struck by this beautiful piece on facebook and I think it’s worth sharing as much as possible.  I found it particularly poignant as my own wedding is later this year following nearly 12 years together and many of the…
