MichelleMovesMountains Moves On…


This will be my first and my last blog as Michelle Moves Mountains in 2012 and indeed the future. Since I started to write this blog I have moved mountains, (obviously not in the literal sense…more in the obstacle sense!!!) trekked mountains and skied mountains and oh, what a fabulous journey it has been! I have learnt so much, achieved so much and changed so much!!! It truly has been epic and I want to take this opportunity to thank all my readers for reading my blogs and posting feedbacks of encouragement and support. You have made this blogging experience all the more worth while and enjoyable and for that I am really grateful.

A lot has changed over the past year and I believe that I can credit the blogging for helping make that a reality as it allowed me to type out my inner most thoughts and therefore speak about what I was thinking which helped put into action what I wanted to do. This included getting out of a job I did not enjoy and that made me anxious, finding out what my true talents and skills were (and therefore realising they did not lie in the job I was in!) reigniting my passion and purpose for writing, (more of that to come!) getting into my first ‘worthy’ relationship with someone who is my equal and who I trust, love and respect, getting to travel to Ecuador, Peru and Switzerland and literally climb and ski mountains as my name suggests (!) and finally becoming self employed and doing what I love which is to mentor and coach young people.

I am now ready (!!!) to move onto the next chapter of my life which is to start up my new business (of a different name to this) and deliver speaking, mentoring, careers coaching, workshops and books to help young people find their purpose, direction and their inner voice. Just like Madonna and Prince (!!!), I am reinventing myself and changing my identity as I no longer resonate with MichelleMovesMountains and it no longer feels like me. I feel that I have changed so much that I need to change my brand to fit who I have become, which is why I have to let go of MichelleMovesMountains so that I can make space for a more suitable brand, identity and mission to enter!๐Ÿ˜‰

It took doing these blogs to realise what I was good at and what I enjoyed and it would give me no greater pleasure to be able to help inspire young people to realise their potential and what they too are good at so that they lead purposeful, happy lives, which is what I have learnt to do over the past year. I hope you will join me on my next chapter and support me in any way you can as I plan to continue to share my insight and knowledge with everyone in order to truly make a difference in the world. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart, your support has been tremendous…next time you see me, I will not be moving mountains but finding that inner sparkle that makes them feel alive!!! Adios Amigos!!!๐Ÿ˜‰

2011 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 35 trips to carry that many people.

Out of your comfort zone…


Its been just over a month since I returned back from my epic trip to Peru (I know, only a month!) and it feels good to be back. Peru was without doubt one of the most amazing yet challenging experiences of my life. Not just physically but mentally too. The lack of oxygen due to high altitude meant that I wasn’t able to think as clear as usual and I felt completely out of character. This was a massive mental challenge for me. What was also mentally challenging for me was the fact that I was living in a tent for five days with a lack of working toilet facilities and home comforts and surrounded by a big group of absolutely lovely people but people I didnt know. Now, I never thought that I was someone who needed their home comforts and space but it turns out now that I do!

The physical challenge came in the shape of trekking for up to 11 hours in varying temperatures and varying altitudes and the fact that on some mornings we had to wake up at 4 am! Again, something I was not used to doing, surprisingly!

The reason I am telling you all this is because whilst in Peru, high up in the Andes, I felt, for the first time in a long time, completely out of my comfort zone, my familiarity. It wasn’t possible to just pop to the toilet whenever it was needed as for the most part on the trek there wasn’t one! It wasn’t possible to make yourself a cuppa when required as this could only occur at set times when we stopped for food. It wasn’t possible to call your mates when you were in need of a bit of reassurance and encouragement because If you did you would end up with a mammoth phone bill! I was completely out of my comfort zone and feeling like I was going to drown!

But, in order for me to raise ยฃ3,000 for the charity Action Medical Research, it had to be hard. It couldn’t be an easy walk in the park, a holiday; as that wouldn’t have been fair to all those who had sponsored meand were due to sponsor me. I had to suffer so that young children with disease and disability wouldnt have to. And in some ways, I am ok with the fact that I suffered. The act of suffering strips away all the fineries and comforts you are used to and brings you back to basics, dealing with things that aren’t so pleasant or so nice. And what you come to realise is that once these issues are dealt with, its not the end of the world. Every hard thing can be overcome. I cant begin to describe to you how good it felt when we all saw Machu Picchu for the first time through The Sun Gate! All that hard work paid off within that instant and the suffering was no longer an issue. After suffering must come relief so fear not. And this is crucial. Fear limits and hinders you especially when you are not in your comfort zone. So in order to deal with this fear, give love. To yourself and to whoever or whatever is causing you to fear and in so doing, the fear will evaporate. As Oprah Winfrey says ‘Think to yourself, what would I do If I didn’t have fear’ and do that. Love is always the answer.

I have since noticed that certain other situations cause me to feel out of my comfort zone. Having to give presentations of material that I have only just seen to a group of judges causes me to become nervous and panicky. Often shopping causes me to be nervous (I know, this is weird for a girl!) I have also just started working at a fantastic charity called Fight for Peace, in North Woolwich and I absolutely love it. They do Muay Thai, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts and I am still plucking up the courage to actually participate in one of the classes because I know how out of my comfort zone I will be if I do and how hard and intense it will be! Even doing more than 10 sit ups is pushing me past my comfort zone!

But what I have learnt from all these things is that by doing things that are out of your comfort zone and pushing yourself just that little bit harder you become able to achieve things that you didnt think were possible and within your capabilities. We are all amazing, wonderful individuals capable of so much but often our self doubt and fear limits and hinders us for achieving our full potential. Just like in the film ‘Limitless’ we are all capable of learning to speak new languages, be fit, have the body of our dreams, be confident, go to far away places and visit the sights we see in magazines and films. This is all within our reach and possible for each and every one of us but too often we get caught up in excuses or negative talk so we don’t allow us to reach our full potential or live the lives we were created for. Nothing is impossible if you believe that you can achieve and nothing is impossible if you give yourself the permission to really live rather than just do what you always do so that you get the results that you always get.

So, the moral of my story is this. Allow yourself to step one foot out of your comfort zone often so that you can realise how powerful you actually are and that there really isn’t anything for you to be scared of other than fear itself and the thoughts telling you that you ought to feel scared! Push the boundaries just a little bit to prove to yourself what you are capable of and do something every now and then that scares you. My next goal to achieve, which is something that most definitely scares me is to pluck up the courage to join Fight for Peace’s Muay Thai class!!! I will let you know how that goes๐Ÿ˜‰

If, after having read about my plight, you want to sponsor me and give money to an awesome children’s charity you can do so by clicking on this link http://www.action.org.uk/sponsor/michellemovesmountains
I have ยฃ200 left to raise by 30th November. Even if you can only sponsor me ยฃ5, I would be most grateful.

I am in talks with someone to create a programme for young people to help them realise their power, potential and purpose. Get in touch to find out more๐Ÿ™‚ I look forward to hearing from you :):):)

Finding purpose. Raising self worth. And improving prospects.


Amy Macdonald \'Youth of Today\'Finding purpose…

I have been on a rollercoaster of a journey these past few years and my life only started to take off once I had found my purpose and believed in it so passionately that nothing anyone could say could dissuade me. I believe it is my purpose to empower and motivate young people to believe in themselves, their capabilities and their potential and I know that through my talent of writing, my skill of public speaking and my gift of encouragement I will be able to do so.

The London Riots

It was whilst on this journey of discovery that the London Riots occured. Youths of all ages, colours and religions came out in force to loot, vandalise and cause terror on London streets. One word that was constantly associated with these acts was ‘mindless’ and I truly believe that this was the case. A tipping point was reached with these young people and they revolted. They believed they had no job prospects, no study prospects, no life prospects and as much as I dont condone their behaviour and the way that they expressed it, the cuts to education and youths have caused a great deal of hopelessness for our young people, our future generation. They no longer feel supported. They no longer feel like they belong and they no longer feel heard. This amount of isolation and worthlessness leads to people acting out in ways that are not desired or socially accepted but for some of these young people it was the only way they knew how to express their anger and their desperation.

Celebrity Culture

What these young people did was indeed mindless but when the majority of young people spend their days playing computer games, being brainwashed by television and having footballers and reality TV stars as their role models who can blame them for the way they reacted. These young people are not living purposeful lives. The majority of them have no clue what they will be doing in 5 years time and have no direction or purpose so end up spending their time glued to the TV set or computer, on Facebook or Twitter. It is due to this that they get sucked in by adverts telling them that in order to be beautiful they MUST have the latest beauty product, in order to be thought of as cool they MUST have the latest trainers and in order to fit in, they MUST have the latest computer game/console. It is due to this fear of not fitting in, they are led to consume. And if they dont have the money to consume, they end up having to find other ways and in this case it resulted in them looting.

Raising Self Worth

Young people have no belief in themselves and their value. No idea of what their talents and skills are and if you were to ask them to tell you one positive quality about themselves they would either find it too difficult to or they would find it a vain thing to do. They have such low self worth that if you were to pay them a compliment or a bit of praise they would shrug it off and tell you what they have done is nothing. It is because of this lack of self worth, belief, powerlessness and hopelessness that I believe our youth took to the streets to cause havoc, get what they believed they deserved and behave in a way that shocked our communities.

Improving prospects

It is my belief that in order to combat this issue of low self worth, esteem and purposelessness we need to start from the grass roots up and get our young people to start thinking of themselves in a more positive way. Help them figure out who they are, what they like and dislike and what they are good at and not quite so good at and in doing so find a direction and a purpose because without direction you are just ambling through life doing whatever your peers do, something I am all too familiar with. Its like driving a car in an area without a sat nav. A nightmare to say the least! Life is a lot easier when you know what general direction you are going in and the steps you need to take to get there and I want to help our young people find their direction and figure out what steps they need to make this happen for themselves.

STOP PRESS NEW CAREERS & PURPOSE WORKSHOP!!!

I am currently developing a careers programme for 14 years and up, which will be designed to help our young people find their direction and purpose and know that they are worthwhile and that there are always choices and options for them regardless of which route they take. This will take a lot of hard work and I am not for one second pretending it will be easy but if we dont do something soon, we will end up sliding down a slippery slope with more and more anger and hopelessness felt by our isolated youth. By taking away their rights to education and telling them they will not amount to anything unless they are rich, we are creating youths with no belief in themselves or their Government. And this is something that I aim to change as I want to make a difference in the lives of our young people. And I know I will do it.

I welcome any feedback from people currently working with young people or otherwise. I will be looking to do some focus groups of young people and adults educating our young people to find out what they need so please get in touch if you would like for me to come to your school or youth centre. Also, if there are any opportunities that you know of, please do let me know either via here or my email which is michellepritchard1@hotmail.co.uk I look forward to hearing from you.

And if anyone would like to help me with my brave leap of faith, please do get in touch. Remember, we can all make a difference in the lives of our young people :o) and If you are feeling charitable and want to give money towards a good cause, you can do so by going to www.action.org.uk/sponsor/michellemovesmountains

I will be returning from my epic trek mid September and will update my blog to let you know how it went. I will be using what I have learnt from doing something I once thought impossible to change the mindsets of our youths to a more positive, self accepting one. One that believes that anything is possible, all that is required is hard work, self worth, belief and faith.

Much love, MMM xxx

Taking a brave leap of faith…


In just three days I will be off on a massive adventure to South America. This is something I have wanted to do since I read a book called ‘The Celestine Prophecy’, which was introduced to me by my Great Aunt in Australia. When I read that book, it was like something had been ignited in me and it wasnt until the following year when another friend of mine reintroduced me to it that the wheels set in motion. Something sparked inside me to know that I was meant to go to Peru and I was meant to climb Machu Picchu. It was my purpose. And as soon as that purpose was set, nothing could stop me from making it happen for myself. Literally nothing. Once you have found your purpose and believe in it wholeheartedly, doors will open for you and people will support you to make it a reality. All it takes is a BRAVE LEAP OF FAITH…

I’d heard of this brave leap of faith a lot but it was something I didnt believe I could do. I’d been too fearful, not knowing what was around the corner and too scared to be brave in case something bad happened! I would think, how would I pay the bills if I took a brave leap of faith and left my job? How would I pay the mortgage, go out, live my life? It turns out however that when you are living in purpose and have faith, the universe conspires to help you make it happen for yourself…

I have been on a rollercoaster of a journey these past few years and my life only started to take off once I had found my purpose and believed in it so passionately that nothing anyone could say could dissuade me. I believe it is my purpose to empower and motivate young people to believe in themselves, their capabilities and their potential and I know that through my talent of writing, my skill of public speaking and my gift of encouragement I will be able to do so. And it is due to this passion and belief I was able to take a brave leap of faith and leave my job which I had been in for four years and become a self employed motivational speaker, workshop facilitator and mentor. Once I had made that decision, doors started opening for me and opportunities came out of the woodwork which wouldnt have appeared had I not made that first initial decision to follow my heart, my passion and my own north star.

Theres something about Amy…


PoignantAmy Winehouse – Addicted

Its been a while since I’ve written a blog. A very long while in fact. 5 whole months! And to be totally frank, my heart was no longer in it. I couldnt focus on writing, in fact, it was hard to focus on anything. I couldnt see the wood for the trees. The irony is that writing probably would have helped me focus. And see the wood for the trees. Irony indeed! I hadnt even planned to write another blog for a while yet however I felt compelled to write following the very sad death of our dear Amy Winehouse. A woman who sang ‘You know I am no good’ yet we all knew, that she was in fact very good. Talented to the extent that she put most female singers to shame. A voice to rival the legendary greats. And a legend in her own right. Amy Winehouse was a class act who will forever be remembered for the gift she bestowed on us. Her voice and song writing abilities. A voice that gave us such pleasure and let us forget our troubles.

The reason I was compelled to write this blog is because I saw something in Amy that I had seen in myself. Rightly or wrongly, whilst watching the documentaries following her death and visiting her home, I found myself relating to her in a way that I hadnt seen whilst she had been alive. Not only were we the same age, we also shared a past of ups and downs. Although there were numerous occasions, when I was going through my wild, reckless phase where I would find myself making jokey comparisons between the hell raiser and myself, it was always said tongue in cheek. There were lots of things I loved about Amy; her outspokeness, her honesty and frankness & her ‘I dont give a shit what you think’ attitude. Qualities I believe I have or aspire to have. The thing though that was incredibly apparant to me was the low level of self worth that our dear Amy had. Low self worth and crippling insecurity. And this was something I too had in the past been all to accustommed to.

My childhood was a very loving, happy one. I was brought up by two wonderful parents in Croydon, which is all to often associated with hair facelifts and cocaine! Growing up I was a mischieveous, outspoken child. Incredibly bright yet incredibly troublesome. A bit like our Amy. And even though I looked like butter wouldnt melt, there was something about me that led some to say ‘its always the quiet ones you need to watch out for!’ And they were right! I had a love for drama, dancing and singing and was involved in theatre schools and plays although I obviously never quite got to the stage of our Amy, this was always a great passion and love of mine.

The death of my father to cancer and the months that preceded and immediately followed it caused me to suffer trauma and a deep level of insecurity, which stayed with me for years thereafter. Where my low level of self worth stemmed from I am not so sure although I would hesitate to guess that it too came from this period. This low level of self worth led me to not take care of myself well, abuse my body with large quantities of alcohol etc, be aggressive, be in relationships damaging to me, which caused me a great deal of pain and misery & accept & tolerate disrespect, rudeness and lies. I found myself displaying addictive tendancies, not feeling whole & becoming deeply attached to people & things. Looking back in hindsight can be quite shocking considering how far I have come now however the recent death and stories of Amy Winehouse’s life brought all this back to me with startling clarity. Here was a girl who was brought up by two adoring parents who then went onto divorce and shatter Amy’s concept of love. She has stated in many of her candid interviews that this event caused her to rebel and become insecure in herself. I am in no way blaming her parents for what occured with Amy (and I too am not blaming Blake) in the same way I am not blaming my dad for passing away. What I am saying, however is how sensitive and susceptible young people are to upset and trauma and how this can have knock on effects into the rest of their lives. Makes the job of the parent seem all the more daunting!

Addiciton is a subject close to my heart & something that is often treated as a taboo. You can have an addiction to alcohol, drugs, sex, love or in fact all four as was the case of our Amy and others I am also aware of. Addiction stems from not feeling whole. Not feeling complete and therefore looking outside of yourself to complete you. This would distinguish a person who is able to take drugs recreationally and someone who takes it in order to self medicate.

They say that addiction stems from childhood. A traumatic event or not getting enough love as a child. Wherever it stems from it is my opinion that the greatest cure to lack or fear is to love. Give love, feel love and be in love with one self. Realise your worth, your value & your power and love and accept yourself unconditionally for it.

It is my belief, rightly or wrongly that when one has a low level of self worth and therefore dont realise how much value they bring to this life they are more likely to become influenced by ‘bad’ people and situations, turn to alcohol and drugs as a way to cope and self medicate, become addicted to people and things outside of themselves as they dont feel complete or happy inside, love too much to make up for their lack of love of themselves & put up & tolerate with people & situations beneath them. I know this because I have been there. And whilst I may be wrong when it comes to dear Amy, I have a feeling that the same rings true for her situation as well.

When you have low self worth no amount of esteem from outside of you can amount to you feeling better about yourself. No matter how much people are praising you for your talent with awards & compliments this will have no effect if you dont have this inner, foundational belief in yourself. It is this foundational self worth that leads you to experience true love, joy, peace, happiness and contentment. Without it you are just lost waiting to be found & searching desperately outside of yourself for something, anything to make you feel an ounce of good.

It is because of this life experience and belief that I set up and created with my dear friend Dolly the ‘Because You’re So Worth it’ programme; a programme designed for young girls to empower and motivate them to realise their worth from a young age in order to prevent them as best we can from heading down a path unworthy of their worth. I believe it is my purpose in life to deliver this programme and share my story with others to help them, empower them and build their confidence so that they too can see how good they are. As it was only when I realised my worth, my talents, my skills & what I had to offer that I found love in myself.

Even If it is too late for our dear Amy.

Gone but never forgotten. Loved more than she will ever know. Amy Winehouse, I pray that your soul has now found peace. And your story will help our youth realise that as fun & crazy partying, drink & drugs may seem, the truth is that all everyone wants is to be loved & to be happy. And in order to appreciate this fully, one need to love and be happy on the inside first. Because You’re So Worth it!๐Ÿ˜‰

Amy Winehouse RIP 1983-2011

Much love. Till next time, whenever that may be. Sooner rather than later I hope!๐Ÿ™‚

What’s self love got to do with it?! Errr…everything!


href=”https://michellemovesmountains.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/make-love-and-war.jpg”>Following on from my blog about self worth, I am now going to take things a stage further and chose this day of St Valentine’s and day of ‘love’ to write a blog about dating, my experiences (!!!) and what I have learnt from it all (!!) And my ex boyfriends have no reason to fret as I dont plan on dishing the dirt on them per se. I feel no bitterness or resentment to any ex boyfriend and wish them all well and hope that they are all happy in their lives today. This blog is more about my journey of self discovery and what I have learnt from my encounters with the opposite sex and what my message is to all young girls and boys about to embark into the world of dating, relationships and love๐Ÿ™‚

I have had four serious relationships in my life The first being at 18 and the last one ending spectacularly at 25. And prior to this age, I was very keen to be in a relationship and therefore was looking for love in all the wrong places. Losing my father at a young age meant that I was often looking for a ‘father figure’ or at best a male to fill the ‘hole’ left by the death of my dad. Every relationship I went into I believed would fill that hole. And every relationship I came out of left an even bigger hole. And this is not the fault of any of my ex boyfriends. I dont blame anyone for how I felt in the past. It just serves as a reminder that I wasnt ready for any of these relationships or able to love any of them unconditionally as one ought to within a relationship.

And the reason for this was because I didnt love myself. And had very low self worth so tolerated behaviours that were not worthy of me or loving in any sense of the word. It took me to the deteoriation of my last relationship for me to take stock of my life, put things into perspective and take time out of the dating scene, which I should have done years before. I realised that I was attracting the men and relationships I had encountered due to me not being fully together or truly, madly, deeply in love with myself.

Therefore, over the past two years I have spent time getting to know me and falling in love with myself again (as corny as that sounds!) And that is the message and moral that I hope to impart with the followers of my blog. That until you truly love yourself, realise your self worth and what you deserve, you are not ready to be in a romantic relationship of any kind. Dont depend on a man’s love of you to make you love yourself. Cos it doesnt work like that. You have to love you FIRST before someone else can truly love and appreciate you. And without that self love and self worth, any romantic relationship that you find yourself in will not be healthy.

To my younger readers, I want you to know this. Dont rush into a relationship because everyone else is. Only do it once you feel it is right and you feel ready. Because by rushing anything will only cause longer term problems. The motto ‘Pay now, play later’ rings true. Spend time getting to know yourself, what your likes and dislikes are and what you will tolerate before entering a relationship. It will pay off in the long run. Preparation is key. The longer you spend figuring yourself out, the healthier a relationship you will have further on down the line. And truly love yourself. And treat yourself constantly. Because you deserve it and in doing so, you will teach others how to treat you.

I have reached an age, a season and a time when I can honestly say that I am ready for a romantic relationship because I know Michelle Pritchard inside out, I have overcome the various issues I have had within life and love myself MAHOOOOOOOOSIVELY. And to add to that I know my worth therefore will not tolerate a man cheating, lying, disrespecting or abusing me in any way. Because when you are an empowered woman of worth you repel any form of negativity, BS or ridiculousness. I am far too valuable for a waste man๐Ÿ˜‰

So whoever the next man is to be in a relationship with me is going to be very lucky indeed as he will enjoy the harvest, a culmination of everything I have learnt over the past 10 years and more. And lets be honest, who wouldnt adore me?! I am totally loveable and cute๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Valentines Day to all, single or coupled up. If you are single, spend the day affirming how much you love YOU and be happy for those who have found love with another, not bitter because your time will come when you are ready for it. And remember every day is a day to be in love with you, your partner and everyone around you. Cos love is AWESOME. Love is GREAT. And love does indeed make the world go round. The Beatles were right when they said ‘All you need is love’ Lots of love๐Ÿ™‚
