Create Space and Ideas will grow!

For two days I did not create space in my schedule to write this daily blog.

So nothing was published.

18 months ago I would have been mortified. I would have been berating myself for not fulfilling my responsbilities and my pledge.

I pledged to write and publish daily this diary/journal so you can follow my journey.

And now I have failed to fulfil this pledge.

Have I failed in my responsibility to myself, to you?

Only you can answer that.

What I do know sometimes these blogs are read, sometimes they are not. I know you have other more important priorities in your life. My blogging every day is not one of them.

You are not checking. You may be disappointed yes but I know showing up regularly for those that follow me here on WordPress or Facebook or Linkedin is important.

Being consistent is important even if only one reader is reading and my blog changes their life, it is worth it.

I would have fulfilled my purpose and the intention that fuelled my passion for writing these blogs in the first place.

To be there for those that are suffering alone, burnt out, overwhelmed and feeling lost and hopeless.

However I also know showing up to serve you the reader is done when I am showing up in true alignment and authentically and with the highest energy vibration.

I do not mean always joyous about life but fully passionate, whether angered by something or enamoured by an event, I need to be fully present to my feelings when writing.

I cannot write because it is something I have to do.

It does not serve any purpose if it is done half heartedly.

And although I still am committed to writing everyday in the spirit of service, I know life happens, unexpected emergencies occur. Life throws it curve balls.

This not writing for two days, also showed me that if I do not create space for the idea to grow or any idea to grow, it will just remain an idea in my head.

It is like a plant or vegetable, that grows in soil. If you plant it in the soil and there is no space for the plant to grow, then it will not.

The plant or vegetable needs space to grow into a bud, a plant, to flower.

Space, time and energy are so interrelated.

So reader, although I did not create space for writing these last two days, I created space for Connection with Coaches that are aligned like me in creating an impact.

I had time and found energy for interviewing Rene Michele an Author, Coach and Mentor about her work yesterday.

I discovered in creating space, and investing the time and energy and going in deep, the rewards are huge.

Business thrives on connection and I deeply connected with Rene Michele.

Collaborations are life blood of Business.

I want to share with you the interview and show you how with perseverance and persistence, a beautiful collaboration springs forth.

The video is on Vimeo, here is the link. The password is Rene Michele

PLEASE watch it one minute and 30 seconds in.

You can tell can’t you in the beginning, I did not realise I was recording.

In the interview I talk about flawesomeness, and that is something you find being an Entrepreneur, showing up with your flaws and that although you try perfecting products and services, it is never going to be the case. You are constantly improving.

I hope you can accept me in my flawsomeness.

I hope you find the interview beneficial and please share with others who you think need to hear this wonderful Coach’s insights.

I would also love your comments and feedback regarding the interview.

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.




Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
