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

Give Me A Moment

Life is made up of moments: indefinable parcels of time in which an event is captured. A moment isn’t bound by the constraints of seconds, minutes or hours – it is it’s own thing. And a lot can happen in a moment. Life-changing events. You can fall in love, break an arm, break a promise…discover gold! Moments are important. We … Read More

What Motivates Me?

I posed this as a question to myself today. Vikki and I were discussing her Buck You business when I found myself envying her motivation. By creating her own range of ethical horse gear and by giving lessons on a new, science-based yet ethical way of training horses, she is truly in her element. It’s a dream vocation and I … 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

The internet. One of man’s greatest creations. In generations to come, mankind will look back on this in the same way we look back at the Iron Age or the Industrial Revolution. In many ways, it is a triumph. It has given careers to those that don’t fit in and didn’t fancy a regular job (hello!); it provides an infinite … Read More

Neural Pathways To Happiness

For most of my life, I have suffered with depressive illnesses of varying degrees resulting in anything from light grumpiness to suicidal tendencies. Whilst the former is quite tolerable, the latter is clearly not. I have documented over the years my battles, going into detail in my book. Even though this has been a struggle that I identify with myself … Read More

Stop For Progress

We are all too busy. Whether it is running around doing housework, shopping, picking the kids up or working in an office 45 hours a week; launching a new business or trying to compete within a large playing field, our precious time gets more and more limited. We end up having no time to think and are never in the … Read More

Three Supplements To Relieve Stress & Anxiety

Having a somewhat uncooperative brain, I have spent many years investigating various supplements that may help to alter my mood or aleviate various symptoms of my mental illness. Like many that suffer with depression, a large contributory factor to it is stress and anxiety. In recent years – and with the help of Vikki – I have discovered the three … Read More

Sleep: Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?

Pretentiousness, I can do well. Sleep, not so good. I get to sleep OK – quite fast, in fact – but awaken after a few hours to find that the washing machine of ideas I call my brain is in spin cycle, keeping me awake. I wouldn’t mind if it weren’t for the fact that Zion’s on not-much-sleep are considerably … Read More
