A Series of (un)Fortunate Events

I hate writing these "I've been absent, but I'm back!" posts, but I feel one is necessary to give a little bit of context about where I am currently at. You see, I've been absent, but I'm back. It's been over a year since my last post, which was back on the 1st October 2018, …

Love Language – A Tribute to my Dad

Call it selfindulgent, but I wanted to post the tribute I wrote and read for my Dad's funeral on 11th Feb. It is, by far, the proudest I've been of a piece of work in recent times - not due to technical skill, but to emotional resonance within myself. ********** Over the past couple of …

Creating Confidence: Be the Expert

Confidence is something that many of us struggle with; it's something I have struggled with all my life. Today, I'd like to tell you one of the ways I help myself to be confident in a situation I'd normally suffer in. Recently, I've took up a role within my workplace as a Coach. As part …

Taking my Own Advice & Leaving that Comfort Zone

One of my favourite topics, to write about, to talk about, and to reflect on, is that of comfort zones. Comfort zones can be perceived as bubbles that we feel at our most content. In them, we are not challenged, not really, and we take little to no risks. A comfort zone will look different …

Aiming for the Clouds

It's natural that, over time, we evolve and change and shift, as our perspective changes so do our dreams, as our values change so do our goals. It's with this in mind, that I've started to really consider, and have become very aware, of what this blog actually means to me. What is Clockwork Clouds? …

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

Should we stop saying should? Last weeks post was about language and the effect it has on our perspective. You can read that post here if you wish: Changing Language, Changing Perspective. I'd like to take another step into it. Should, it seems, is not a useful word when it comes to perspective. There's no …

Changing Language, Changing Perspective

The way we talk about something, be it a task ahead, a chore we have to do, or just anything or anyone in life we have to deal with, actually has an astounding effect on our perspective of the thing in question.   Let me tell you a story of how this blog post came …

How to Define Progress…

In a world of instant gratification, a world of spotlights and showreels, a world of social media, it can be surprisingly hard, sometimes, for us to define something as simple as progress.   Making progress is, simply put, moving forward. It can be a step of any size, as long as it is forward. It …

Cracks in the Porcelain

I think it's healthy to keep in mind that not everything is perfect and that everything has flaws. Last week I discussed that, in an ideal world, Social Media should be a place of acceptance and empathy; it honestly has that power, it's just more often than not it is abused. The thing is, whilst …

Helping Hands

I think, sometimes, that we spend so long working on ourselves that we forget the value of working with others. Clockwork Clouds has long been about my personal introspection, but whilst I often write to understand the inner workings of my mind, I also write to share my thoughts and feelings with the hope that …
