Emily Chadbourne You Can Have It All Not Mindset Coach Melbourne Australia Personal Development

You Can Have It All. Fu*k Off. You Can’t.

When I sat down to write this week’s blog, I assumed it was going to be a piece about my decision not to have children. Being 38 (internal jukebox starts playing “Time Is Running Out” by Muse) and in the throes of a new relationship, it seems to be the hot topic of the moment. In part, this blog has …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Melbourne Why Fine Is A Dangerous Place To Be

Why “Fine” is the most dangerous place to be.

So I’m gonna start this week’s blog with a confession. I am a massive eavesdropper. Seriously. I love listening in on other people’s conversations. Sit me in a café with my laptop and a standard strength latte and within minutes, my BFG (Big Friendly Giant of Roald Dahl fame) sized ears will be tuned into the conversation between Jan and …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Melbourne Raise Your Vibe

Raise Your Vibe (Shake It Off)

On Sunday morning, I woke up in a colossally shit mood. I couldn’t explain it with the usual plethora of reasons which often have the punch to tip me over into being an utter brat. Am I hormonal? Yes but I’m always hormonal these days. Is a planet in retrograde? Probably. Did someone have the audacity to behave in a …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Melbourne Australia Life

Life

When I started this year-long weekly blog series, I must admit to having a romantic notion of embodying a certain Carrie Bradshaw flare. I could see myself writing wistfully at an open window, the breeze lightly blowing the vintage net curtain into the shot of my perfectly framed life, my laptop warmly welcoming me to write inspired words of divine …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Melbourne Australia The World Keeps Turning

And the world keeps turning

Welcome to my weekly blog. Heads up, it might be truly shit this week. Normally my blogs write themselves in the overactive part of my brain which is always looking for patterns and explanations of human behaviour, tying together the mundane moments of life with vast concepts that underpin the idea of success and happiness. I am often asked how …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Melbourne What To Do When Floundering Reach Out

What to do when you’re floundering!

One of the strangest feelings in the world is when nothing is wrong, but nothing is right either. It is quite literally the worst. It’s a feeling of discontent that can’t be explained by logic or reason, that nagging voice that speaks without words and follows you around like dog shit on a shoe that you thought you’d washed off …

If you feel you should, maybe you shouldn’t.

It is 10pm on a Saturday night and I am watching a drug deal go down in a kitchen somewhere near Brisbane. I have a front row seat and I am totally and utterly balls deep. I can’t look away; I don’t want to walk away, and I have no idea how I even got here. I am inside the …

Emily Chadbourne Mindset Coach Politics and Personal Development

Politics and Personal Development

I don’t know anything about politics. For years and years, whenever someone spoke about politics, asked me about politics or uttered the word politics, my standard response would be, I don’t know anything about politics. As if admitting my ignorance about politics excused my ignorance about politics. But it has come to my attention that that isn’t good enough. Recently, …
