Join the Gratitude Party

In our very busy lives, it is all too easy to forget what we have in our lives and just how far we have transformed ourselves. Having just completed a 7 hour drive to attend my sisters wedding, I sit here writing this on my cell phone. This in itself is a fact to be […]

Your Why and How

Today I never got up until 1pm. I will reveal the full explanation as we progress through this post but that decision was made because I felt there was little point in getting up. Now you will be glad to hear, I do not consider myself to be afflicted with depression or any other such […]

Getting Unstuck
