My sentiments exactly!
Hey there, I’m Leanne and I’d like to welcome you and say thanks for stopping by.
I am a certified life coach, qualified careers adviser and freelance content writer.
I started this blog in 2015 to share simple, practical tips and insights on self-care, wellness and journaling within an overall theme of personal development, growth and transformation.
I mean, have you ever thought to yourself: “There must be more to life than this!”?
Yeah, me too!
I used to think it daily when I was in a career that made me miserable, and eventually had a serious impact on my health.
The thing is, once you start adulting, looking for “more to life” can seem scary, self-indulgent or simply impossible.
Often you feel stuck.
You know what your ideal life looks like, but a lot of the time you have no idea how to make it a reality.
Or, you have absolutely no idea what you want from life, but you know for sure it’s not what your life currently looks like.
It could even be that your life really is not that bad at all. But, you just can’t help feeling like something’s missing, and you can’t quite put your finger on what it is.
You’re not miserable, and you’re not necessarily even unhappy, but you want more of something.
I can relate to it all.
I’ve been there, and over the past 10 years, I’ve met so many women who have been there too.
So, you’re not alone.
If you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, or demotivated you are in the right place.
Not only am I an advocate for people feeling happy and fulfilled, doing something meaningful and that they enjoy; I am also passionate about women feeling confident in their own skin and being true to themselves.

I refuse to believe that we’ve been put on this planet to spend the majority of our lives working a 9-5 (or doing anything else that makes you unhappy) for 40+ years – a lot of the time struggling just to make ends meet.
Seriously, that’s just insane to me!
I want to thrive, not simply survive.
And I want that for other people too.
But, it can be difficult to even say that out loud in today’s society, let alone actually break away from the view of “it’s just the way things are”.
I’m not naive.
I know we live in a capitalist society and that we need money to live but I believe that there are other ways to live life.
We just need to be brave enough to take a risk and go against the current “norm”.
We also need to unlearn a lot of what we’ve been taught and challenge what we’re being told.
It is an ongoing process and it’s far from easy.
But today there are thousands of people challenging the rules of society and living a life they imagined.
I’m no expert, but I’ve begun the journey and I definitely live life on my own terms most days.
Every day I strive to live my best life, out loud and leave my mark on the world, no matter how small.
And I invite you to do the same.
I want to help you feel passionate and excited about your life again and spend more time doing what you want to do, rather than what you feel you should do, whilst still being able to pay the bills.
So whether you’re considering a career change, struggling with work life balance or career progression, dreaming of travelling around the world, or you simply would like to find an hour in your day to read or exercise, get in touch and let’s get you back to living a happy, healthy life you love – on your terms!
