Friday 26th May 2017 – Some days it is really hard not to be bitter and down about life. Today is just turning in to one of those days! I think some of it is just tiredness on my part. I’m trying so hard to be an Uber dad on the days I have my

What you realize when you hit rock bottom!

24th May, 2017

24th May 2017 – It was an early start for me today to make a conference call with Tokyo this morning. Summer is truly here in London and my ride in to work as beautiful as ever. This has been the toughest year of my life so far, no exceptions! But I’m starting to realize that

Reflections on a short break in France.

21st May, 2017

21st May 2017 – I’m flying back to the UK today after a short break cycling in France. The trip has been exactly what I needed and a massive departure from the last time I went cycling with this group back in September 2016 last year. The nice thing has been that everybody has noticed the

Focus in the opposite direction?

24th Mar, 2017

Friday 24th March 2017 – My thoughts for today switch to Mothering Sunday and I wonder if I should send myself half a bunch of flowers given that I am now Mummy and Daddy for 50% of the time??!! Good old gallows humor!!!! But in all seriousness it is another chance for me to be the

17th Mar, 2017

Friday 17th March 2017 – I’ve written, many, many, times about dropping my little boy at school on a Friday and then knowing that I won’t have him for the weekend. It is still such a traumatic experience and I do wonder when it will get easier? When I set off on this RebuildMe journey I had no

Ctrl Alt Del for the mind.

27th Feb, 2017

Monday 27th February 2017 – In order to combat the inevitable feelings of the comedown of the return to bachelor life that accompanies Monday for me I’ve desperately been searching for techniques to help. I know that my moods are entirely dependent on my thoughts and anything that I can do to ‘distract’ my mind and

Water off a ducks back

16th Feb, 2017

16th February 2017 – It’s back to bachelor life again today. It is such a huge comedown after several, full on, days with my little boy. The morning is still the hardest. Knowing that there is not only an empty space left by my partner not lying down next to me. But there is also no pitter

‘Success’ in one area of life means ‘Sacrifices’ in another

6th Feb, 2017

6th February 2017 – One of my big thought loops is all about balance. In 2014/15 I was pushed by work to take a ‘Leadership Coach’. Someone who would help me rise above the layer of middle management and managing a team at work to reaching up for executive management and decision making. Not once

Winter cough strikes

28th Jan, 2017

28th January 2017 – I’ve been able to keep going at a frantic pace through this whole RebuildMe process despite getting very little sleep and fully in the knowledge that my stress levels have been higher than they have ever been in my life. Today is the day when the wheels come off. After a night

Magic brush.

22nd Jan, 2017

22nd January 2017 – A wet morning starts with an early run. This has become the familiar rhythm of weekends without my little boy. I am still really struggling with the purpose of my spare time. During the working week my job fills so much of the day. But I find myself this morning with time
