Love: Part 1

I Thought I’d touch on this subject seeing as this will be hitting you right as the most romantic, love filled day in the calendar lands in our laps. I am talking of course about the one and the only Valentine’s Day. Firstly, let’s take to one side everyone’s boo-hiss attitude to Valentines Day claiming it is just a corporate spin of the wheel to make money. Well yes, February 14th no doubt generates millions and millions and makes the bottom of some pages look very handsome. But strip that back and look at it’s core, it’s meaning. It is … Continue reading Love: Part 1


This is a subject I talk about a lot to a lot of people. It’s the big one for personal development, something of huge intent but also of a certain careless shooting of the breeze. It is the topic that we define as the goal we have set out to achieve. The holy grail of our quest, the grand prize that we seek and know full well will be no easy task to achieve. Quite the opposite in fact, it will more than likely¬† be one of if not the hardest thing we ever apply ourselves to accomplishing. What is … Continue reading Endgame.

Trailing cables.

We all begin new chapters in our lives from time to time. It is just part of life, people come and people go for a whole multitude of reasons. After all, if you think about the endless possibilities of how and why people can come into your life then there is at least an equal amount of reasons that could also change and they can leave it. It’s important to understand , and I think this only comes with a little time and experience, which is translated to heartache generally speaking. But however we arrive at understanding that people will … Continue reading Trailing cables.

Talking to mum over the Christmas period was nice as she appears to be finding her feet with this new way of life that she has had to adjust to since my dad passed away. It’s nice for me as a son to see her starting to get her head round it and when we was all around the Christmas table for dinner we all started to see her and her ‘new’ personality beginning to blossom. She’s funny, she’s of course kind but sadly I think she will always remain tight! I joke, she is a very generous person, but … Continue reading 3 Years in 5 seconds.

There’s no team in I.

I have certainly noticed on my journey that I tend to put a lot of faith in people even if they haven’t earned it or asked for it. I think it’s something I’ll never stop being able to do which I think is born from just how I am and how I was raised. I have never had that whole ‘I’m alright Jack, screw you’ mentality. It just doesn’t sit right with me. People that make out they are team players but are only looking out for themselves. yes of course we should be doing that but not at the … Continue reading There’s no team in I.

Let them go.

If we manage to get through life without damaging or being damaged by someone then we’ve done exceptionally well. It’s pretty much a part of being human and travelling through life. We will at some point let someone in under our defences because we choose to and we do this in the full knowledge that they then have every capability to hurt us in ways that could affect us for a very long time. As a general rule of thumb people don’t set out for this to happen, they don’t generally speaking come into your life with the full intention … Continue reading Let them go.
