It’s been an interesting week of reflection, reviewing the wonderful cycle of life.
This year I have witnessed the birth of life (my beautiful god-daughter!) up close & personal and the loss of life, and it is this cycle that brought up some thought provoking questions…
- In your lifetime how many dreams have been fulfilled?
- How many more dreams are waiting to be?
- How many of your dreams have faded into the background, long forgotten or no longer thought of as possible?
- How much of yourself have you given – will you end your cycle on an empty tank having given all that you can or a full tank?
- How will you be remembered by those who knew you well; fondly… greatly missed… forgotten?
Every day you have an opportunity to make a difference, through acts of kindness, through words of support, through confidence to face your fears and do the things you were put here to do. Inside each one of you is a gift waiting to burst forth… will it be realised in this cycle of life? Only you can decide.
Unravel your gift, your dreams and your confidence! Live your cycle of life fully, as it was intended. I intend to leave this life on empty, happy to know that I followed my dreams and achieved more because I did… will you?

A catalyst for change, Yvonne Bignall is a breath of fresh air in the extraordinary way she helps women 50+ to reconnect with life & their innate power through radical self-care, guilt-free!
She supports, encourages, and inspires women to prioritise their health, one bitesize action at a time. Her work is challenging as it navigates through difficult conversations, listening & observing how women’s health issues have been:
❊ Under-resourced &
❊ Swept under the carpet
She helps women to recognise & unpack old scripts that still (sadly enough) tell them that their value derives from their level of caregiving of others, their output. The truth is it is the input, the ability to resource self, which provides women with the energy required to realise their true potential.
Along with her team, she explores the thoughts, behaviour & habits, often born out of guilt, gender expectations, and reinforced narratives, with curiosity (not judgment), discarding the unhelpful, whilst reclaiming innate power through the creation of new patterns, restoring a sense of self, outside of societal expectations. In her opinion, this allows women to:
✔ Develop an elevated level of self-awareness
✔ Build / rebuild their confidence & self-belief
✔ Value all of who they are and invest time in who they want to be at their best
A self-care warrior, an encourager & inspirer, Yvonne is today an award-winning Women’s Health Advocate, Published Author, and an International Presenter. She is also a Radio Show Host and a Podcaster.
Yvonne is focused on building a community of women, www.PermissionToThrive.online, who are ready to reclaim their right to self-care, guilt-free, and who prioritise their health without apology, role-modeling behaviour & habits that inform generations to come of their true value.
She also advocates for self-care over burnout in the workplace, delivering practical webinars in the corporate space. In her own words, “It is time for employees to prioritise their wellbeing. How will they deliver their best work without it?”
One of her favourite quotes comes from Eleanor Brown, ‘Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel’
