I have been pondering about how the world works lately, one of my favourite past times. For example, have you ever noticed there is a pattern of the top 1% of businesses or personalities sucking up all the media profile, funding, and customers, leaving the rest surviving on scrapings and grinding away like bottom dwellers?

More is more - and we're constantly competing, whether we admit it or not, to be doing the most. The most what, you ask? Well, anything. But in the interest of making this readable in the age of zero attention span (myself included), let's look at two key gauges of "success" in 2017...

Living with M.E has taught me an important lesson about agency and self-ownership. In an age where tangible goals seem increasingly elusive, it's no surprise so-called 'millennials' are focussing their energy on achieving balance, purpose and freedom in life and work.

It's hardly surprising that many of us in our late forties and fifties end up either dreading the years to come or railing against them by trying to pack as much in as possible (younger lover, ultra-marathons, sports car, botox, face lift, breast implants, you name it).

So what is the problem? The problem is the recategorisation of what essentially is how, as humans, we were born to fuel ourselves and the off-putting nature and limitations that calling it 'clean eating' brings up.

The Fallacy Of Fitspo

Body confidence is at the root of how we feel about ourselves, and this shouldn't be extrinsically linked to meals or workouts (or lack thereof) , is a few kilograms really enough to warrant you feeling hatred or disgust at your body? Ashley Graham's confidence wouldn't falter if she either lost or gained a few pounds, could the Victoria's Secret angels say the same?

Sure, I have thoughts on the Brexit. I don't think we should have ever been given the vote. I, for one, have never studied politics (LIKE TRUMP!) and we're not good at voting. We'll keep Honey G in the X Factor but we want the French out.

I am always worrying about what's next rather than enjoying the moment. We can't predict the future, we don't know what's going to happen but that should be EXCITING. I, for one, cannot spend the next 60/70 years worrying about what could/should be.

Can We Ever Really Be 'Balanced'?

Balance is that word that we all aspire to, but rarely seem to achieve. Almost as soon as we gain a feeling of being 'balanced' it slips through our fingers and we're back to takeaways for dinner and a glass, ahem, bottle of wine after the kids go to bed.

Happy New Year everyone! I'll assume you've made a New Year's resolution and, as we're almost halfway through the month, I'm guessing you've potentially broken it already. Fret not my Resolutioners, as New Years resolutions are now yesterday's news and 2016 is the year to introduce a revolutionary concept - balance.

The universe is always in motion and always growing. In nature, business, life and almost everywhere change happens in distinct and predictable cycles, yet when it comes to our own personal development people seem to strive for a status quo, a "balance". It's this desire for balance that can actually unbalances us.

Pause for a moment now to consider the balance you currently have in your life...and the balance you're striving to achieve.... The most common areas of consideration are family, work, health, friends, and spirit...all of which you try to "juggle" at the same time.

Screw Positive Thinking

This is a call for authentic listening. Instead of verbalising that emotion, be quiet. Listen to it. See what fears and foes lurk beneath what you're feeling. It's about listening to oneself and one's own emotional state and then being wholly responsible for it.

Originally, I wanted to name this post "Aimlessly Attempting to Crawl My Way Back to Center," but I thought it was too defeatist sounding. It is how I'm feeling as of late though. I feel like the balance and grounding I had found has become hazy, muted, diluted.

We live in a much more complex, global world than our parents (and their parents) did - in this day and age, our careers are ours to construct. We can't just escape from the challenges of this construction. Effective long-term solutions involve reorienting ourselves by re-educating ourselves.

Vertigo is the main symptom of Labyrinthitis. It is caused usually by the cold or flu virus, and is an inflammation of the labyrinth in the inner ear. This is a new part of the body to me... the only Labyrinth I knew of, prior to this, is the one David Bowie leaps around wearing eye wateringly tight leggings.
