The handbag that has everything. Really – it defies space-time continuum.

I am a man. I have pockets. It’s all I need to carry my phone, wallet, and keys.

Just pockets – this wonderful invention that you can’t leave home without. Unless you forget to put on clothes. In which case, your problems run much deeper!

When I leave the house with my 3-year-old son, Noah, there are a few additional items, I admit. I take his water bottle, a diaper, and some wet wipes (just in case it gets industrial down there!). With that, we’re off.

It’s simple. It’s liberating. I am not weighed down with more than what I need. But… this is just one half of the story.

Meet the handbag that defies the space-time continuum. A bag that holds EVERYTHING. No, I really mean that. Go on, test it.

You can ask for anything – and it will be retrieved. From my observations, the item will ALWAYS be somewhere down in the depths of the bag.

By depths, I mean way beyond the spare clothes, umbrella, mobile phone, charger, wet-wipes, first aid kit, snacks, novel, reading glasses, loose change, tampons, make-up, face mask, hand gel, sanitiser wipes, pens, notebook, perfume, pain killers, stones Noah has picked up, diapers, water, sun-cream, shades, sun hat, spare pair of shoes…

Somewhere past the Blackhole of the 8th Dimension, arm-deep towards a far-reaching corner (by the purse needed at checkout) an item will be found and delivered to the surface!

Meet my wife’s handbag.

My late Nan had a similar Tardis from which anything could be summoned. She always prided herself on this feat. It was like a badge of honour that she had everything. I used to spend time thinking up tests for her.

Gum? (With no teeth, what need would she have to chew it?)

-Here it is.

Pocket knife? (She was in her late 70s at the time).

-Yes, I have one in my bag.

WHAAAT? I am not even going to ask!!!

But I shouldn’t have been surprised: this was an old lady who slept with an axe by her bed.

No, you grizzly lot, it’s not what you’re thinking.

It was to break her window with, in case of a fire!

No matter what I asked, it WAS always there in her handbag. She liked to be prepared for any need. To Nan, this was liberating.

This is my wife’s handbag; its volume of contents does not plausibly (possibly even scientifically) fit the bag capacity.

But here’s the really special thing.

When we’re out together and I’m hungry, out pops a snack.

If our son falls and cuts his knee, out comes a Band-Aid.

When I come out of a shop balancing my purchases in my arms (Look, I’m never going to buy a 5p plastic bag no matter how high I balance my tower of items) a spare bag is produced from inside the handbag.

Hang on, I need to pause…. a bag inside a bag? Now my head hurts…. But I digress.

My son and I are liberated and not weighed down not despite the handbag but because of it. Or rather because my wife always makes sure that she has not just what she needs – but anything that we both might ask for, too.

Thank you, wifey. I know that you are “practically perfect in every way” but even you cannot fit a full-length mirror, a pot plant, and a lamp in that bag!!

Help comes in many forms. It may be a handbag full of thoughtful items put there by a loved one – or it maybe someone helping you to not get weighed down.

If you want to smash through your glass ceilings. If you want to be liberated from the weight of a limiting mindset, I can help YOU.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
