Declutter Your Life

Something prompted a bit of a cleaning spree recently (the visit of Vikki’s mum) and, like most cleaning sprees, it concentrated on surfaces. Sparkling sides, polished cupboards, hoovered floors. Lovely. But what about all that crap that lurks behind those cupboards? The wardrobe that is practically bursting with clothes? The chest filled with DVDs… That last one? Guilty. To fit … Read More

Relationships Don't Have To Be Bad

I see and read so much about bad relationships. People rarely stick together through richer and poorer, ’til death do us part any more. And it is a real shame. Let’s backtrack and ask the most pertinent of questions: why do people seek a partner? Sex? Romance? Procreation? Yes, some of that to an extent, but the biggest reason should … Read More

My Gap Year

It’s a little later than most, but I have come to the conclusion that 2017 is my long overdue gap year. I didn’t realise it was going to be when January 1st hit and, to be honest, I had no reason to think that this year would be any different to previous years, filled with lots of hard work reaching … Read More

Open Minds Wanted

Open Minds Wanted

I spent a large portion of my life being closed-minded. I made my decision about something, someone, and stuck with it. Not only did I stick with it, I may have mocked or ridiculed. We are all, to a larger or lesser degree, closed-minded. Seems to me that we are born that way, probably some kind of protective mechanism dating … Read More

Perfection Is An Illusion

“The grass is always greener on the other side”, “Keeping up with the Jones’” – just a couple of sayings that have been part of British lexicon for decades. Not sure when they came into being but I can imagine, when TV first came out, the desire to not be the last on the block with rabbit ears helped boost … Read More

When Ego Is The Enemy

When Ego Is The Enemy

We all have an ego. It is the thing that drives us to succeed, the thing that makes us believe that we can achieve and progress. It has driven human evolution moving us out of caves and into skyscrapers. We need it, yet it can also be our biggest enemy. If you don’t keep your ego in check, or understand … Read More

Never Stop Asking Questions

How many people do you know that are stuck in a rut, never deviating from opinions (even when presented with contrary facts) and seem proud to be a luddite? A lot of people form their view-points, likes and dislikes at an early age – usually informed by parents, family, friends or locality – and refuse to change them. This is … Read More

Every Day Can Be Like Sunday

Yesterday was Sunday. Like millions of people in the UK, I spent it doing whatever-the-hell I wanted. That turned out to be a visit to an antique fair, a mooch around an art gallery, a blast through a supermarket, a trip through our fields to the river and, finally, a movie. Today is Monday. Unlike millions of people in the … Read More

YOU Are What's Stopping You

If there is one thing that is stopping you getting the most out of your life, it is you. Sure, you can point the finger of blame toward circumstance or friends or relatives or colleagues, but that is just an excuse people use to prevent them facing up to the fact. People don’t strive for greatness for many reasons. Fear, … Read More
