My chuffin blog... (comes with a health warning!)

You are a fabulous problem solver, persistent and great with follow through. With an eye for detail, you are well organised, structured and have a passion for perfecting process and establishing systems. Preferring to work independently and with your methodical approach, you like to focus on facts and data to achieve tangible results.
Being more concerned with content than style, most of your decision making is based on evidence. You have a tendency to be in control of your emotions, and whilst this is a strength that helps you keep cool under pressure, it may appear that, at times, you lack interest or enthusiasm. This can hold you back in achieving what you want.
We are not born with enthusiasm, it’s an acquired trait. To help you to develop a greater sense of enthusiasm, start by forming goals for yourself. Think about what you would like to achieve for yourself and/or your family. When we form goals for ourselves, something happens to our attitude; we become more positive, more enthusiastic. Actions trigger feelings just like feelings trigger actions. By simply acting more enthusiastic and interested, you will begin to feel more enthusiastic and interested.
To make this happen, mentally and audibly say to your-self, regularly and with enthusiasm, ‘I am enthusiastic’, ‘I feel enthusiastic’. Write it down on a postcard and look at it several times a day.
By focusing on developing a greater sense of enthusiasm in all situations, you will be amazed at how your relationships will be enriched as a result.
Do let me know how you get on.

Reading the London Evening Standard on the Tube this evening, I was drawn to an article heading ‘Divorcees ruining the Good Life for housebuyers’ for two reasons. First, because I am new divorcee and secondly, because there was a picture of Penelope Keith, an actress who had had me in stitches in the 1970’s comedy sitcom ‘The Good Life’. I was intrigued, but as I read on I was downright chuffin furious.
