Because you’re worth it.

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

A business coach I know decided at the age of 22 to retire at 50. He didn’t have children, move house often or get divorced, all expensive activities. He also studied investing and basically spent less than he earned. He was a great spreadsheet man and knew exactly how much he was going to need and created a plan to make it happen. Basically … Read More

On being engaged

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

I recently went shopping in Bath, I was looking forward to being able to go into shops, be around people have a look at stuff. In three shops I experienced really quite poor service; in one it was so bad that I decided against my purchase. Had the assistant even made eye contact with me I would have bought the item. It has … Read More

Re-arranging the furniture.

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

Re-arranging the furnitureOne of the things about lockdown it has given those of us not working time to reflect and consider life, the universe and everything. I have had plenty of time to contemplate what does and does not work in my life. You know when your computer memory is too full and the computer function becomes very slow. It’s … Read More

Stop Shouting!

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

Stop Shouting! We are living in a very fractured and increasingly strident world, where to get your point across you seem to need to shout more loudly. I started to write this before the less than edifying Presidential debate which is a case in point. What were they thinking? Were they thinking? In recent months I have been getting a bit disturbed … Read More

Are you sitting comfortably?

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

Then I’ll begin….. This month I was due to attend a celebration of 40 years in practice with my peers, friends and colleagues. Well, as you can imagine that has been postponed. The actual graduation date is the 4th July (Independence Day!) 1980. I wanted to tell you the story of how I found Osteopathy back in 1976. It was shaping up to be … Read More

Threats and Opportunities

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

Threats and OpportunitiesSo how does it feel to be living in interesting times? The trouble is it isn’t like being in a book where you get to find out the ending, we are just stumbling along trying to make some sense of everything. I have heard one or two bizarre theories as to why? One of which is the earth Gaia … Read More

Barriers and Boundaries

Carol PlumridgeThoughts

Barriers and BoundariesProtection or defence? In these stormy times I was reflecting on fences (mainly because my fence is going to need some repairing). But rather than outside fences I was thinking about the inner ones.Do you ever feel like you are behind a wall? Are you aware of your boundary? And like Kings and Queens in ancient times do you defend that … Read More

Not just January 1st but the year of 2020 and beyond? It’s quite easy to randomly think I’d like more money, holidays, chocolate, but it is … Read More
