Are You Ready for the Best Year of Your Lives? Tuesday Club is Just Around the Corner……

I can’t begin to explain how excited I am about 2014 as I launch Tuesday Club with a dynamic group of women who have decided to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’ and take on new challenges at Cranage Hall in Cheshire on 28th January this month. I’m thrilled to be joined by a group of likeminded women, for whom age is just a number and is no barrier to developing new talents and grabbing life by the balls and twisting, just to make sure it’s awake!

Rosie SedgwickTuesday Club is no longer a metaphor for trying something new and setting goals in isolation. Tuesday Club is now a bone fide club held on the last Tuesday of every other month at Cranage Hall and is for women who have decided to ignite their motivational motors and take the opportunity to challenge themselves, regularly, to do something they’ve never tried before and to be part of a network of encouraging and inspiring women – no mood hoovers allowed!

If you want to build confidence, improve posture and have fun, belly dancing’s for you!

After the excesses of Christmas it seemed right to make belly dancing with the stunning Rosie Sedgwick (see pic) our first Tuesday Club activity. But Tuesday Club is so much more than a networking event with an interesting activity or vice versa. We will truly be stepping out together and sharing a fantastic journey together to make sure that 2014 is our best year yet. Every Tuesday Club morning will be spent igniting our motivational motors (I’ve even made sure that Cranage Hall has got extra fire extinguishers at the ready in case it all gets a bit too exciting).

I know that for some of you, 2013 will have been a tough year which we will want to reflect on, before letting go of what we can’t change and committing to make sure that we change what we can: our attitudes; our thoughts; our behaviours and our self-belief.

…don’t live a life of regret.

Having spent Christmas Eve with my best friend Kathy, whom we managed to break out of hospital (she’d been admitted a couple of weeks ago after having a seizure – she’s undergoing treatment for her 4th brain tumour), life really is in perspective for me. I owe it to her children to be the kind of role model that they need at the moment. To show through my words and actions that life really needs to be lived and to take each opportunity that presents itself so that we don’t live a life of regret.

I heard the most appropriate quote for all potential Tuesday Club Girls last week which has become my mantra for 2014:

“Your life is your message to the world. Make it inspiring.”

As the god-mother of six girls and one boy (I think I must be the token God botherer in my social circle of friends!), the mother of a 12 year old, the leader of a youth group, a tutor on a nationally renowned business growth programme, a motivational speaker, a leadership consultant and, (according to Class 6B at The Grange Junior School), the Best Fairy Cake Maker in the World, it is my job to role model the behaviours that teach the people that I work and play with, that we can be anything we really want to be, if we only let go of the scripts and orthodoxies that tell us we can’t.

Which ‘mountain’ will you climb in 2014?

I’m thrilled to have broken my own life limiting belief last month when my husband took me away to the Lakes to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The following day, he took me for a walk around Rydal Lake (flat enough to accommodate my arthritic back and rubbish knees).Lily and family on mountain summit On spotting a mountain in the distance, I declared, “we’re going up there!” I haven’t climbed anything strenuous for years and have been stricken with chronic back pain and cysts on my spine. My script had been that ‘my strenuous exercise days are over’. Well, I’m pleased to say that on 6th December 2013, I proved that they’re not. I made it to the summit and have even climbed a small mountain in Wales with my boys this week. It’s not easy and I will never win the ‘fastest climber of the year award’ but gosh, it’s exhilarating! And so in 2014 I’m gearing up for 2 new challenges which will keep me mobile in 2014 (and will help to keep me inspired and motivated.)

Both projects will be logged on twitter:

My greatest hope for you all is that you will take on your own challenges in 2014, that you will climb your own ‘metaphorical mountains’ that make you feel alive. They don’t have to be physical. For many of us, it is:

  • Fighting the deeply entrenched life limiting scripts
  • Overcoming age old resentments
  • Letting go of past experiences that have threatened the success of our futures.

I don’t know of a single person who hasn’t harboured a hurt or a grudge against parents, siblings, teachers, colleagues or even friends who have (often unconsciously) used words as weapons to wound. Whatever your mountain is, please share your journeys and successes with the rest of the Tuesday Club Girls on twitter so that we can cheer you on as you achieve your stretching goals in 2014.

Alternatively, please email me your stories at; I would love to use them in future blogs on this website.

I’m looking forward to the journey girls. Let’s get out there and keep breaking the boundaries!

If you can’t join us on January 28th, take a look at other events that we have planned at Cranage Hall, from photography to poetry, public speaking to stand-up comedy.

Alternatively, if you and a group of friends or colleagues would like me to organise a motivational event and Tuesday Club Master-Class just for you to help you to overcome your fears or reveal your latent talents, drop me an email or call me on +44 (0)1606 883383.

Here’s to our best year yet.

Happy New Year. Happy New You!

I have always wondered how these multiple bends are made on pipes. Though it is easy to make such multiple bends on rods, it believes it is bit hard when it comes to pipes. This article has given a clear answer on that.
