Bean a Human….

I am reading so many articles about how modern day is causing women to lose there minds. The demands of work, family, societal expectations and over thinking being too much for women to cope with…… I hear these articles…. I really do!! But there are 2 things I would like to say!! 1. Modern day in this part of the world is putting stress on…

ThespBeans Presents…

And so…… The sun has risen on a new day and I won’t lie I feel a little sleepy…. Last night was an epic experience!! An evening with songs and laughter and joy and dance……. whilst raising money for The Fatboys Cancer Charity (over £1000 thanks to you all!!) Some one asked me, what the ThespBeans were. It’s so multi faceted, But here’s is what…

Long hours, short years….

You know what it’s like when I have a meeting of minds with someone I don’t know! I feel compelled to write those words down and share how they resonate with my soul…. I often talk about time and how we should spend it as wisely as money….. We don’t know when that time is going to run out, we don’t know where our full…

Just Be….

I love spending time talking about life with people I care about! There’s so much to share and it is so nice to do it!! A morning of such, has just taken place! And as always has inspired me to put fingers to screen and add my thoughts to the ether!! The irony of sharing it on social media always making me smile!! Because I…

Bean Thinking Runner

Life is a lot like a run….. It’s dotted with sunlight, periods of darkness, the occasional up hill struggle and the freedom of the down hill gallop, care free, lungs filled with the joy of living….  Some days the run is easy…. And you smile as you go, and sometimes it’s tough.. and you want to climb back in to the safe cocoon of clean…

You are enough…

So today a day which shared both joy and sadness…. As I said to goodbye to some lovely little Beans who have sung and smiled and grown, both in confidence and shoe size!! 😂 Times like this always offer a great time of reflection for me…. Happy Beans, ThespBeans, Runner Beans, my life….. Are all a place where just you is enough…. and I feel…

Human Beans…

Should we be treating our children differently just because they are boys and girls? Or should we be saying the same thing to them all irrespective of gender….. I am inclined to think, that our children, whatever their gender….. Should be treated the same in terms of their mental well being, in how they feel…. I genuinely don’t believe we should be making sweeping statements about…

Helping teenagers live their best life…

How do we talk to our teenagers about life, love, exams and friendship…!? It is so tricky to negotiate sometimes…. Too much pressure, not enough….. Too much freedom, why aren’t they out??? It’s got me thinking…. Of course…. About many things. But mainly, how can we keep our teenagers safe, happy, confident and willing to try!!! Here’s what I’ve come up with…. although…. if anyone…

Kindness…

Frustrated by the world today…. Unkindness is never ok. Not by anyone….. I am not saying be kind to everyone!!! I am saying just don’t be unkind……. The words you utter, the messages you send, have a way of undoing peoples self belief!! So if you haven’t got anything nice to say, choose to say nothing! You’d be amazed at how life is so much…

Cards….

Bollocks to days on the calendar that tell us we should buy cards, and flowers and show those we love, we love them! Bean Thinking says this…. “Every day is a day for love!!! Every day a day for smiles, compassion, gratitude, kindness and joy….. Every day a chance to whisper words that light another persons reality…. Don’t wait for an anniversary, a birthday or…
